A Good Day for Safe Haven (Weekly Links)

A Good Day for Muzak: Willis, Courtney, Koch

A Good Day for Muzak: Willis, Courtney, Koch

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

A Good Day to Die Hard. “Why does he keep saying ‘I’m on vacation!’ as a punch line, when he actually isn’t on vacation in the first place?”

Safe Haven. “A heapin’ helpin’ of Sparks-flavored stew.”

Happy People: A Year in the Taiga. “Lots of useful survival tips.”

Let Fury Have the Hour. “Scattered.”

On KUOW’s Weekday, I talk with Steve Scher about movie presidents, because, you know, there’s a holiday. The session is archived here.

This afternoon, join the critics of Framing Pictures for a conversation at Northwest Film Forum at 5 p.m. It’s free, at 1515 12th Ave., and you can glean some topics for today by visiting FP’s Facebook page. The NWFF page is located here.

And the Seattle Channel has posted a past installment of Framing Pictures as a video on their website; it’s from November, but has quite a bit about Lincoln and a few other Oscar-bound pictures. Check it online here, and see the channel 21’s listing for broadcast here.

Sunday afternoon I’ll be at the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art for a discussion following a live performance of “Rosebud: The Lives of Orson Welles,” a one-man show featuring Erik van Beuzekom and directed by Pattie Miles. The show is at 2; check ticket info here.

At What a Feeling!, we wind down a week of 1980s movie reviews with a look back at Ron Howard’s (and George Lucas’s) Willow.
