Kick-Ass (2010)
[#39 in 100 Films in a Year 2010]
It was a review cliché even before the reviews were published, but it's still true: Kick-Ass kicks ass. See it.


10/40/70 #1: Starship Troopers by Nicholas Rombes

An intriguing new series of columns, this, best explained by its own introduction:
what if, instead of freely choosing which parts of the film to address, I select three different, arbitrary time codes (in this case and for future columns, the 10-minute, 40-minute, and 70-minute mark), freeze the frames, and use that as a guide to writing about the film
It's a little bit film-school pretentious at times, but it's an interesting enough idea to make it worth keeping an eye on.
