See “The Northman” EARLY & FOR FREE
I truly enjoyed The Witch and The Lighthouse (which is far better if you think of it as a dark-comedy) so I’m excited to see the latest from director Robert Eggers, The Northman. This one stars Alexander Skarsgård as a Viking who must avenge his father’s death with the help of a lovely witch (played by Anya Taylor-Joy). Nicole Kidman, Ethan Hawke and Willem Dafoe also star and those last two share a nude scene. If you’re thinking, “Is that supposed to be a selling-point?” I don’t really know but I do have passes to see The Northman EARLY and FOR FREE.Continue reading →

FREE MOVIE PASSES: See “Thoroughbreds” EARLY & FOR FREE
Look, I’m going to be completely honest with you.
I’m not sure about Thoroughbreds. I don’t know how I feel about giving away passes to a movie featuring angry, gun-toting kids. Especially with the way the world looks right now. I don’t want to promote anything that glorifies violence, but I also realize that’s exactly what most movies do.
So how do I handle this?
I guess I’ll just let you decide for yourselves.
Thoroughbreds stars Anya Taylor-Joy and Olivia Cooke as teenagers who concoct a plan to rid the world of their greatest problem; an evil stepfather. It looks like a combination of Heathers and my current favorite Netflix show, The End of the F***ing World. Those are violent as well, but have deeper messages about the way we torment each other and finding comfort in someone who’s just as messed up as you. I’m hoping that’s the category Thoroughbreds falls into.
So, who wants to see Thoroughbreds EARLY and FOR FREE? Continue reading →
MOVIE REVIEW: “The Witch” (& The Dreaded Curse of High Expectations)
It was the summer of 1999, when I saw The Blair Witch Project for the very first time. I remember standing in line to buy tickets with a friend, and how nervous we were. There’s nothing better than a movie that’s so scary, you’re actually scared to see it. We bought our tickets and curled up in our seats, just waiting to be terrified.
Our disappointment was deafening.
Not only was The Blair Witch Project not scary, they never even bothered to show us the witch! I was so mad when I left the theater that day, but a strange thing happened. I watched the very same movie months later and it scared the crap out of me. That’s because high expectations can ruin an experience, and they can suck the “scary” out of almost any scary movie.
I tried to keep my expectations low for The Witch. I heard conflicting reports about just how scary it was. Critics ran from the theater screaming “Scariest movie EVER,” when it was screened at Sundance last year, but just as many came out shaking their heads in disappointment. I was aware of all of this and knew I shouldn’t get my hopes up, but they ran amok anyway. Continue reading →
