Movie Diary 10/15/2013

Escape Plan (Mikael Håfström, 2013). Yes, we are now at the point of cheering a base level of competence.

Stallone continues to look very peculiar indeed, which makes Schwarzenegger (in a pleasingly canny performance) come off rather well by comparison. (full review 10/18)

Tonight, October 16, join me for “End of the Trail: How the Western Movie Rode Into the Sunset,” a talk presented by the Snohomish County Arts Commission, 7 p.m., at the Cole Gallery in Edmonds, WA. More info here.
