Wreck Planet Flight (Weekly Links)

Greenwood, Washington on the Flight path

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

Wreck-It Ralph. “A really neat confection.”

Flight. “Keeps wriggling away from its strengths.”

The Loneliest Planet. “The immersive experience.”

The Bay. “Arriving just in time to seem antiquated.”

The Sessions. “An intriguing set of challenges.”

On KUOW’s “Weekday,” I talk with Steve Scher and a bunch of listeners about the scariest movie we’ve seen. It’s a Halloween show from Wednesday, archived here. Don’t know how to fast-forward any more, so if you figure that out, let me know.

Sunday Nov. 4 I’ll introduce the 7 p.m. screening of Tod Browning’s Dracula at the Northwest Film Forum, part of a festival of 35 mm. prints celebrating 100 years of Universal Pictures.

Wednesday Nov. 7 I’ll sit on stage with David Thomson at Town Hall, in conversation about his new book The Big Screen: The Story of the Movies. Event begins at 7:30 p.m.; more info here.

Running slightly behind on these, but the September session of Framing Pictures is being broadcast on the Seattle Channel this weekend, and also watchable on the website. Here’s the schedule for broadcast; and here’s the thing itself. This one features film talk from Richard T. Jameson, Kathleen Murphy, and Bruce Reid; among the subjects are the recently re-issued films of Paul Fejos.

At What a Feeling!, a Halloweenie week concludes with a double review of Dick Maas’s The Lift and Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie (the ’84 short), and one on Frank Oz’ Little Shop of Horrors.
