Colossal: Soul to Seoul, by Ian Brill

5 Apr

Colossal is Nacho Vigalondo’s meditation on addiction and failure. It stars Anne Hathaway as Gloria, a Manhattan party girl who moves back to her parents’ house (literally just the house – her parents aren’t even there) after a break-up. In the small town where she grew up, she reconnects with her childhood friend Oscar (Jason Sudeikis), who gets her a job in the bar he inherited from his father.

Doctor Strange: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Origin Story, by Ian Brill

2 Nov

Earlier this year, Marvel Studios gave us what is arguably their most ambitious film ever. Captain America: Civil War built on almost every previous Marvel film to tell a story filled to the brim with superheroes. Doctor Strange, Marvel’s second offering for 2016, at first seems to give us something of a breather by returning to the familiar structure of an origin story.
