TGITDNMAR: (8/22/14)

TGITDNMAR: (8/15/14)

TGITDNMAR: (8/8/14)

I owe you all an apology. Last week I gave big time props to Luc Besson, Scarlett Johansson, and their new movie Lucy. The point about the film’s success being a feather in the cap of feminist cinema still (somewhat) […]

TGITDNMAR: (8/1/14)

Hooray for Lucy! All hail Luc Besson and Scarlett Johansson! Their film’s trouncing of Hercules this weekend gives me a smidgen of hope that audiences actually care about things like story and inventiveness. Having seen neither movie I’m unable to […]

TGITDNMAR: (7/25/14)

As predicted by yours truly last week (my soothsaying abilities are top notch), Dawn of the Planet of the Apes finished atop the box office for the second consecutive week. That’s with good reason too, as having finally seen it, […]

TGITDNMAR: (6/29/14)

With apologies to the two interesting indie relationship films getting limited releases, Begin Again and They Came Together, I’m going to turn the focus of this week’s edition of TGITDNMAR to the world of action films. I’ll be looking at […]
