Lucky Hitman (This Week’s Movies)


Salma Hayek, Samuel L. Jackson: The Hitman’s Bodyguard (courtesy Lionsgate)

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

Logan Lucky. “This movie does not aspire to greatness or significance; being extremely clever and thoroughly competent is the goal here.”

The Hitman’s Bodyguard. “There are worse ways to spend a late-summer evening at the multiplex.”

The latest Framing Pictures is online now at the Seattle Channel site: From Scarecrow Video, the critics speak of Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk and Kathryn Bigelow’s Detroit, take a moment to mourn the passing of the great Jeanne Moreau, and muse on what we talk about when we talk about movies. Participants are Richard T. Jameson, Kathleen Murphy, Bruce Reid, and me. Here’s the link. The program is broadcast on the Seattle Channel over the next days, including tonight (Friday) at 10 p.m. The schedule is here.
