Big Fat Batman v Superman (This Week’s Movies)


Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill: Batman v Superman

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

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. “Eardrum-shattering, fat with special effects, and virtually humor-free, this blockbuster is a rebuke to anyone who thinks comic-book movies are supposed to be fun.”

Krisha. “Is the whole movie going to feel like the ‘veal cutlets and cocaine’ sequence from GoodFellas? No, but Shults comes close.” (In case of Herald paywall, Weekly link here.)

Aferim! “The film makes you grudgingly come to like this outrageous windbag.”

My Big Fat Greek Wedding. “How long does baklava stay fresh?”

The latest edition of Framing Pictures is up and watchable at the Seattle Channel website; here, the Framers talk about Terrence Malick, Wim Wenders, and a couple of great cinematographers we recently lost. Look here.

At the Overlook Podcast, Steve Scher and I think about various Batmans and Supermans, and take a moment for Knight of Cups: listen here.
