Berlin movie posters

20 October 2017 1:30 PM, PDT

Sorry for the lack of posts for the last few days: I’ve been having a short break in Berlin to recover from the marathon of London Film Festival. I’ll be back in London on Sunday and back to work on Monday catching up with Lff reviews and other new films. In the meantime, here’s a taste of movie Berlin.

This Victoria & Abdul marquee is one of the most beautiful cinema marquees I’ve ever seen. Note that the poster is painted, not printed:

Logan Lucky and Blade Runner 2049 retain their English-language titles:

But The Glass Castle (which I hope to review soon) and The Snowman get translations:

Something about Pitch Perfect 3, which opens in the Us and the UK (and Germany) at the end of December:

The Snowman movie review: winter blunderland

17 October 2017 6:29 AM, PDT

MaryAnn’s quick take… A clichéd loose-cannon cop is on a case of murdered women in faux Norway. And it’s not even a decent procedural. Sexist, pointless, thoroughly awful. I’m “biast” (pro): love the cast; love a good murder mystery

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

He’s a drunk — like, a seriously falling-down, passed-out-in-the-streets drunk — and a walking personal disaster. His ex just can’t live with him anymore and refuses to tell their teenaged son that he is, in fact, the kid’s dad, he’s that unreliable, but she nevertheless continues to find him irresistibly attractive. He’s a cop who goes to pieces without a case, but with a case, he’s utterly brilliant (but also still a drunk). Which is why his boss covers for him, »

Professor Marston & the Wonder Women movie review: secret identities (#LFF2017)

16 October 2017 2:00 PM, PDT

MaryAnn’s quick take… A sweet, romantic story about the polyamorous triad that created a beloved superhero… and about the power of comic books to speak to our inner lives. I’m “biast” (pro): love the cast; desperate for stories about women

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Sorry, all you dudes who may have been expecting something salacious and debauched from a movie about the guy who created Wonder Woman for DC Comics. Cuz you’ve heard that he was into bondage and somehow managed to convince his wife to bring another woman into their lives and their bed: woo-hoo, threesome! But Professor Marston & the Wonder Women isn’t perverted, and it’s not pornographic, not even of the softest-core type. And this ain’t Fifty Shades of Grey, either. Thank Aphrodite. This is a sweet story about people »
