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

Godzilla. “Another city to crush, another opponent to battle. Power lines everywhere. They send missiles at you, but they don’t work; they never do.”

Million Dollar Arm. “Soft edges and invisible expertise.”

Locke. “Tour-de-force.”

God’s Pocket. “It is no disrespect to the late Philip Seymour Hoffman to say that he was often difficult to look at on screen.”

And a summer preview thingie.

At the Overlook Podcast, Steve Scher and I have a conversation about movies adapted from literary sources – a subject I’m available to speak on via the Humanities Washington Speakers Bureau, by the by. Listen to our chat here.
