Fanboys Push Panther Into You (Weekly Links)


he's just not that into you, yet

Back up to speed: my reviews for the Herald this week:

Coraline. “A picture that taps that funny-creepy-special vibe….”

Push. “The only telekinetic who ever survived an injection of super-brain-juice.”

The Pink Panther 2. “When Sellers and Blake Edwards were doing them, at least they bothered to come up with titles.”

Fanboys. “Just to seek out a few Trekkies and mess them up.”

He’s Just Not That Into You. “Better-than-average laugh-per-minute ratio.”

Pray the Devil Back to Hell. “The values of organizing and persisting.”

Back to Normandy. “Gentle tribute to a landscape and a people.”

Movie Diary 2/4/2009

Gomorrah (Matteo Gorrone, 2008). The storyline makes Syriana look like a children’s book, but there’s undeniably a lot of accumulating power in this Italian expose. (full review 2/27)

Back to Normandy (Nicolas Philibert, 2007). A look back at the shooting of another film, made 30 years earlier, from the director of the superb To Be and To Have.  A worthy experiment, if a come-down from that film. (full review 2/6)

Push (Paul McGuigan, 2009). The what now? Bleeders and Watchers and Pushers? Are these Arena Football teams? (full review 2/6)
