Clark and Sarah thought they would find their Sundance inspiration in the movie seats, and sometimes we did. We also found a couple naps and some stale popcorn. What we didn’t expect was to have a microcosm of the Sundance experience, night after night, at dinner tables around town. People think Sundance is about the films, and they are sort of right, but mostly wrong. Sundance is about the experience… Continue reading Who Cares About Sundance? You Should

“No one cares if you smoke a joint,” at least that’s what exiting California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger thinks. Five weeks ago, the bodybuilder/actor-turned-politician signed a law that made possession of up to an ounce of marijuana the equivalent of a traffic ticket. It carries a penalty of no more than a $100 fine and no [...] Continue reading Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger: “No One Cares If You Get High!”

hTf847 260x195 Why Are Good People Dying? Who Cares.   The Crazies Movie Review

It didn’t seem possible, even in the post-modern entertainment rut the media finds itself, that the genre itself could ruin the movie, but it did. The current bleeding out of the film industry and its latest lazy offering to paying moviegoers, The Crazies, is a decent remake that has been ruined by the glut of zombie flicks. What was once George Romero’s cult film brainchild, has now converted people into the very monsters shuffling or sprinting across the screen.

A slight twist on the seemingly inevitable zombie apocalypse, The Crazies offers nothing new in the way of story or innovative death sequences. Originally made in 1973, the message of chemical accidents and government conspiracy had been poignant. The grandfather of the genre Night of the Living Dead, was more of an allegory for a greater message of racism and throngs of people lost to the clutches of consumerism or some sort of brain-washing, has now been feasted upon by the very beasts that were staved off in the movie.

Timothy Olyphant, from the award winning films, Hitman and The Girl Next Door, plays the Sheriff (insert forgettable name here) of a small mid-western town, attempting to make sense of the formulaic, over-produced gore-fest. After the movie wrestles some inconvenient dialogue and exposition out of the way, the good guys fight bad guys and gross stuff happens over and over again. What little bit of plot there is comes off as a nuisance that only moves the story from one shock scene to the next; scenes which were created simply to startle the audience. The Crazies plays off as: “X happens, Y happens and the Z happens, and then: oops the movie’s over!”

The lack of originality (despite it being a remake) has been rehashed time and time again, to the point where these movies are boring and redundant. When the lights come on, and everyone who was supposed to die is dead, it feels like the movie didn’t even happen. Lazy movie making is partially to blame. Remakes aren’t always a good thing, as Ty Burr from The Boston Globe notes that no one was asking for this movie to be made, yet it was done anyway.
