DVD Discovery: Three Nose-ring Circus

Films about filmmakers making films are filmmakers’ favorite kind of films to make. Why? Because people who make movies know the inherent metaphors and obvious allegories that go hand-in-hand with the process of moviemaking. The problem is, this can feel like either “inside baseball” or pretentiousness when presented to people who don’t “get” the guts of this art.

The Circus Animals is...

Cutting Room for June 15

  • Did you like District 9 but feel that it’s metaphor about apartheid could have been even more obvious? Never fear! Director/writer Neill Blomkamp’s secretive new movie, Elysium, has just had its plot revealed, and it is even more obvious-er. Set in the year 2159, the move follows a man (Matt Damon) who tries to leave the confines of a polluted and overpopulated Earth, where the poor people...

Glee-ve It Alone

Rock of Ages

Let’s not do this, okay? Let’s not use nostalgia to forgive the unspeakable things we did to fringe, denim and the musical scale in the 1980s. Other than the 1985 Chicago Bears and that time Michael Jackson’s hair caught on fire, there is nothing even worth remembering about that shameful decade, when men were Men at Work and women jazzercised.

Rock of Ages nearly realizes that those 10 years...

Indecent Bro-posal

That's My Boy

That’s My Boy isn’t just so bad that you would rather play a fun game of “scratch my retina with chicken wire” for 90 minutes; it’s so bad that writer David Caspe and director Sean Anders should be legally prosecuted for crimes against humanity. If this is what we’re capable of as creatures living in a (relatively) free society who have evolved to the point where we are afforded the luxury of...

Cutting Room for June 8

  • Because this year’s College World Series takes place a hop, skip and a jump (and you can probably leave out the jump) from the front doors of Film Streams, the theater goes into a different scheduling cycle starting June 15. On gamedays, one hour prior to the first game’s start time, the theater converts into the artiest sports bar you’ve ever been to, complete with beer and a huge screen on...

Creation Miffed

Prometheus

Without warning, critics that were once songbirds chirping with anticipation about director Ridley Scott’s return to sci-fi with Prometheus have turned into a savage pack of eagles relentlessly devouring the film’s liver. Honestly, the titular metaphor is almost too perfect, as Scott’s return to the universe he helped create with Alien has been blasted for essentially “not knowing its place,”...
