September 2, 2008 Links

Links to my Herald reviews for a typically slow Labor Day weekend–what a way to start the website. Disaster Movie is marginally better than Date Movie (surely that’s the definition of qualified praise), and Traitor is clunky but eventually delivers some spy-movie goods.

Disaster Movie.

Traitor.

The Girl Who Leapt Through Time.

Constantine’s Sword.

Talking on KUOW-FM’s “Sound Focus” on August 29 about Constantine’s Sword and a revival of The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. The film segment begins at 34:00 in the program.

While we’re doing some catch-up, a link to the 8/22 edition of “Sound Focus,” talking about Tuya’s Marriage and comparing Pineapple Express, Tropic Thunder, and Hamlet 2. Film segment at 33:55.
