Goon in Black (Weekly Links)

Smith and Jones and greenscreen: MiB3

Links to reviews I wrote this week for the Herald, and etc.

Men in Black 3. “Promising ideas that don’t pay off.”

Headhunters. “The gonzo energy of a born thriller-maker.”

Post Mortem. “The odd feeling that information is being left out of the top and bottom of your vision, as though you were looking through lateral slats in a window.”

Goon. “An awesome ’70s mustache.”

Some picks for the upcoming week at the Seattle International Film Festival.

On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Steve Scher about the transformation of the wrong people into initialized brands (Khalid Sheikh Mohammed = KSM, for instance), plus a few SIFF tips. It’s archived here; our conversation begins at the 20:40 point.

At What a Feeling!, we conclude a week of one-word titles from the 1980s featuring strong female stars; the last one of the bunch is Robert Benton’s Nadine.

Rotten, the critically-acclaimed graphic novel, will be a presence at this weekend’s Crypticon in Seattle; watch Rotten‘s Mark Rahner clamber out of a coffin to promote the event here.
