Teminator Rabbit (This Week’s Links)

terminatordark

Natalia Reyes, Mackenzie Davis, Linda Hamilton: Terminator: Dark Fate (Paramount Pictures)

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

Terminator: Dark Fate. “Cameron’s gift for grabby ideas is on juicy display — it’s candy you know is empty calories, but hard to resist.”

JoJo Rabbit. “It isn’t every day you find yourself saying this about a movie, but I’ll go there: Not enough Hitler.”

Harriet. “A weird tic of mentioning the Almighty at least once every ten minutes.”

Next Wednesday, Nov. 6, join a session of Scarecrow Academy, where we continue our cruise through the films of 1959 with a screening-discussion around Jack Clayton’s Room at the Top. It begins at 7 p.m., and it’s free.

1980s horror movies ran the table this week at What a Feeling!: check out reviews of Jack Sholder’s A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy’s Revenge, Frank Laloggia’s Lady in White, Stuart Gordon’s Dolls, Chuck Russell’s remake of The Blob, and a twofer on Richard Franklin’s Link and Charles Martin Smith’s Trick or Treat.

 

First Bad Times (This Week’s Movies)

Ryan Gosling: First Man (Universal Pictures)

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

First Man. “Even if First Man doesn’t fire on all cylinders, its unusual protagonist is fascinating in his blankness; here, the right stuff is downright cold-blooded. ” (Herald link here.)

Bad Times at the El Royale. “Doesn’t have quite enough twists to justify the 141-minute running time.”

My Seasoned Ticket throw-in for the Scarecrow Video blog is a collection of notes on Roger Corman horror films – yes, it is October. Read it here.
