this is my corn. you people are guests in my corn.
Jason Statham teams up with another badass little girl… which makes him almost warm and charming as he kicks the crap out of villains.
Mark Gatiss treats the legends of Doctor Who’s creation as only a longtime fan can, in a lovely tribute full of the exasperated acceptance that rose-tinted hindsight brings.
I’ve been hard on Steven Moffat during his tenure as Doctor Who showrunner. But he got it right with “The Day of the Doctor.” He got it really, really right.
A cry-till-you-laugh-dramedy about seeking lost family and finding new purpose; Judi Dench and Steve Coogan are fantastic. Seriously, though: bring Kleenex.
The showstopping central musical number is a glorious anthem to female power and ability… and so, in fact, is the whole wonderful movie. Disney is finally getting it.
A devastating indictment of pop culture as propaganda — about its power and the limits of its powers — and an upending of the typical teen-girl romance movie.
There’s plenty of good summer popcorn fun, with fresh and exciting action setpieces, but this is mostly an intimate story about Logan, as a mutant and as a man. (new DVD/VOD US/Can; also UK)
Towers with ambition, swelled by sweeping philosophies about power and presence on scales both planetary and personal, beautifully balanced by a wellspring of wry tragedy. (new DVD/VOD UK; also US/Can)
Mine was Shaun Cassidy. *sigh* Between the bubble-gum pop music and The Hardy Boys Mysteries on ABC on Sunday nights, I was a complete preteen goner.
Don’t let this somewhat chipper collection of hugs and gentle ribbing mislead you…
But of course!
I don’t get the feeling that you’re all that into me. But you could do something for me that would convince me that you love me…
…while I run around Amsterdam this week.
He’s Batman: fan shock as handsome square-jawed actor cast as iconic superhero. Also: Ben Affleck could not possibly care less what you think of him.
This poignant and painful ensemble drama about the lesser-known figures caught up in the JFK assassination reminds us that history happens to regular people, too.
Shhh! don’t tell anywhere where you heard all this…
