Partly sunny

‘Cloud Atlas’ sports foggy brilliance

By Ryan Syrek
To steal from Mother Goose (don’t worry, she’s dead): When Cloud Atlas is good, it’s very, very good; when it’s bad, Hugo Weaving is doing a drag impression of Nurse Ratched.

Being near Emma Watson

Reconciling the public’s fascination with Emma Watson’s blossoming sexuality with realizing that the first time she was on screen she was 11 years old is really difficult.

Object of my Affleck-tion

‘Argo’ proves Ben is the real deal

By Ryan Syrek
It’s easy to thrill people when they don’t know what’s coming. OK, maybe not easy — paging Mr. Shyamalan — but certainly less difficult than whipping up tension in a film based on a decades-old actual incident, the resolution of which is but a Google search away.

By Ryan Syrek
In the wake a presidential debate that was almost fact-free on one side and nearly lifeless on the other, smearing Butter on one´s eyes seemed like a good option for poll junkies.

Circular logic

'Looper' is a semi-clever time travel tale

By Ryan Syrek
Right when the film needs to kick into a higher gear, opening the futuristic world up for a sizable climax, it downshifts into a muted, quasi-philosophical think-piece set mostly on a Kansas farmstead.

‘Glee’ clubbed

Resistance to ‘Pitch Perfect’ is futile

By Ryan Syrek
At the point where the fist pump from The Breakfast Club becomes a plot point, shortly after a near-mute Asian girl who ate her own twin in the womb makes snow angels in another girl’s vomit, Pitch Perfect moves from “potential cult classic” to “recommended for any human who likes funny.”

Brand Xenu man

‘The Master’ says not even religion can change you

By Ryan Syrek
With a heavy heart comes the news that The Master isn’t outright the best film of the year; it’s only one of the best films of the year. Step up your game, PTA.
