Captain Ghostbusters Life (This Week’s Movies)


Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnen, Leslie Jones: Ghostbusters

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

Ghostbusters. “The high spirits are maintained from the ectoplasmic opening to the very end.”

Captain Fantastic. “It’s all so very civilized, and after a while the movie’s slick style begins to feel like the opposite of Ben’s experiment in raw living.”

The Infiltrator. “Really done right, it would be 10 or 12 hours of longform TV.”

Life, Animated. “When his parents are preparing to drive him to his new condo, Owen needs to slow down the departure. ‘Can we watch three scenes from Dumbo first?’ he reasonably requests.”

Sunday night July 17 I’ll participate in “Red Rain and Monsters: A 200th Anniversary of the Shelleys and Byron at Lake Geneva,” a theatrical event exploring the “haunted summer” that produced Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, among other things. The event is free, begins at 7, and more info can be found here.
