Total Sorry (Weekly Links)

Total Recall’s Beckinsale: Driving Miss Crazy

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

Total Recall. “Grating.”

Dark Horse. “Like most of Solondz’s films, the casting is inspired.”

Ai Weiwei: Never Sorry. “Ai has plenty to be fearful about.”

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days. “The failures and mortifications have an authentic ring to them.”

On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Steve Scher about Britishness, as expressed in Danny Boyle’s Olympic Games opening ceremony and Powell-Pressburger’s Life and Death of Colonel Blimp (revived this week in Seattle at the Northwest Film Forum). The talk is archived here; the movie section begins at the 17:10 mark.

I’ll do a pop-in on KCPQ-13’s “News at 4” today ’round about 4:40 or so. That’s channel 13 in Seattle.

Another pop-in at the Museum of History and Industry’s “Movies in the Park” series on Saturday night at Lake Union Park, to say something brief about the museum’s upcoming “Celluloid Seattle: A City at the Movies” exhibit, which opens in December and of which I am curator. The movie’s free, begins a half-hour after dusk, and is 10 Things I Hate About You.

At What a Feeling!, another week of Eighties movies concludes with reviews of Roger Spotiswoode’s Turner & Hooch and Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner.
