A few new reviews and interviews

Just a few links.

1. My reviews of this week’s bored-married-couple comedies, Mr. & Mrs. Smith and The Honeymooners, are now up at CT Movies. It’s always interesting to see what makes it through the editing process and what doesn’t, especially where publications that cater to an evangelical readership are concerned. In the latter review, the bit where I quote John Leguizamo promising a dog some “bitches” made it through — would it have passed muster if he had referred to women and not to female dogs, I wonder? — but my reference to “fart jokes” has been turned into “flatulence jokes”.

2. The full-length version of my interview with The God Who Wasn’t There director Brian Flemming is now up.

3. I wish I’d seen this sooner! The CBC has an article on The Cross and Bones, a documentary about the “paradox” of Drumheller, Alberta: “This town of less than 6,000 is . . . home to the biggest dinosaur cemetery in the world and a hotbed for creationism.” Apparently it played at a festival in Toronto back in April.
