  • Left Behind: Rupture in the Rapture!

    Published: Fri, Oct 3, 2014

    "Left Behind" may be the most boring post-apocalyptic movie ever made, Huffington Post reports. Only the irritatingly preachy messages delivered by wooden characters threaten to detract from the glacial speed with which the plot develops. Two things happen in the movie: The long awaited Rapture beams the saved up to heaven and Pilot Rayford Steele (Nicholas Cage) successfully lands a crippled commercial airliner, according to Huffington Post. Unfortunately, we do not get to actually see the Rapture occur. Apparently the film's budget would not allow for extensive special effects or miracles. But we know that the saved have left, because they disappear, leaving all of their clothes behind. Should the film be X-Rated? Will it relieve our over-crowded highways? More importantly, will it finally help Nick Cage to pay off his huge debts?

  • Is ‘Gone Girl’s Amy a misogynist? A misandrist? Or both?

    Published: Fri, Oct 3, 2014

    Part of what makes “Gone Girl,” first Gillian Flynn’s novel and now David Fincher’s movie adaptation about a woman, Amy Elliot Dunne (Rosamund Pike in the movie), who goes missing and her husband Nick (played by Ben Affleck), who appears to have murdered her, is its fascinating stew of gender politics, Washington Post reports. Though I was unconvinced by the book the first time I read it, I have since found myself repeatedly drawn into Flynn’s deft sketches of Amy, a woman stunted by her parents’ use of her life as material for a popular book series, and Nick as a man terrified of turning into his hateful father. And as I have re-read the novel and watched Fincher’s excellent, unnerving adaptation of it, I have come to the conclusion that part of the fascination of “Gone Girl” is that Amy Elliot Dunne is the only fictional character I can think of who might be accurately described as simultaneously misogynist and misandrist. In fact, she hates pretty much everyone else on the planet, except, briefly, her husband Nick, according to Washington Post.

  • Movie trailer: First look at Navy SEAL Chris Kyle’s ‘American Sniper’

    Published: Fri, Oct 3, 2014

    The first trailer for the highly anticipated and somewhat controversial “American Sniper” has been released, giving viewers their first look as actor Bradley Cooper playing Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, who is billed as the sniper with the most confirmed kills in U.S. military history, Washington Post reports. The movie is based on a best-selling book by the same name, according to the Washington Post. It will likely depict some of the intense combat and sacrifice that Kyle saw during multiple deployments to Iraq, and his struggle to adjust to life at home in between. Kyle was shot to death on a Texas gun range in 2013, allegedly by a Marine veteran he was trying to help through post-traumatic stress.
