Fallen Wave Club (This Week’s Movies)

Gerard Butler: London Has Fallen

Links to my reviews published this week in the Herald and Seattle Weekly.

London Has Fallen. “The dumb kick of a cheesy action movie quickly sours into unpleasantness.”

Zootopia. “A handful of laugh-out-loud moments.”

The Club. “What happens when people willfully ignore the unignorable.” (in case of Herald paywall, Weekly link here.)

The Wave. “Stunning scenic wonderland, or brutal death trap?”

Early warning: Friday March 11, 7 p.m., the talkers in Framing Pictures will re-convene for a conversation at Scarecrow Video. Discussion topics include Wim Wenders, whose career is getting a month-long reappraisal on Seattle screens, and Terrence Malick, whose new Knight of Cups opens soon. Check the FP Facebook page for updates.

More early warning: Saturday, March 12, join me for another Cinema Dissection at SIFF Film Center. We will take six hours to make our way through Billy Wilder’s Some Like It Hot. Which seems like the least we can do. The marathon begins at 11 a.m.; more info here.
