Great Top Wild Exodus (This Week’s Movies)

Chris Rock, Rosario Dawson: Top Five

Chris Rock, Rosario Dawson: Top Five

Links to reviews I published this week in the Herald and Seattle Weekly, and etc.

Exodus: Gods and Kings. “Scott’s grouchy approach falls short of the eager-beaver cornpone of Cecil B. DeMille.” (In case of Herald paywall, Seattle Weekly version here.)

Wild. “And people complained about the guy in Into the Wild being ill-prepared.”

Top Five. “Even playing opposite the lively Dawson doesn’t make Rock a more fluid actor.” (Weekly version here.)

The Great Invisible. “Doesn’t entirely succeed as either journalism or poetry.” (Weekly version here.)

At the Overlook Podcast, Steve Scher and I talk about lesser-known holiday movies; will post here when the conversation goes live.

Thursday December 18, please join us at the Frye Art Museum for the 10th annual Critics Wrap, a panel of Seattle film critics sorting through the movies of 2014. The event begins at 7 p.m. and is free. More information here.
