The Mask of Zorro

I’d considered doing away with Saturday Replay as a “thing”, and using the just passed Potter Week+ as a demarcation point, (since I’d seen all eight of those movies before.) Of course, the… Continue reading

The Parking Lot Movie

For today’s Saturday replay I decided to re-visit a documentary that really surprised me with its quality when I first watched it a couple years ago. It’s an excellent example of how a… Continue reading

Pulp Fiction

Today’s Saturday Replay is Pulp Fiction. What can I possibly say about this movie that hasn’t already been said? It’s an utterly fantastic movie experience. It’s a movie about criminals, but it’s not… Continue reading

Empire Records

Today’s Saturday Replay came out when I was in High School, though I’m pretty sure I never saw it until I was in college. It’s essentially what you’d get if you mashed up… Continue reading

Slap Shot

Today marked the formal end of the NHL lockout, so in honor of the return of hockey today’s movie is the mother of all sports comedies, Slap Shot. The film is really a… Continue reading

Idiocracy

Today’s Saturday Replay is a fundamental and unambiguous skewering of modern consumer culture, but Idiocracy is part of a long line of dystopian fiction. Writer/director Mike Judge is a master at taking common-sense… Continue reading

Herb and Dorothy

I don’t often re-watch documentaries, but today’s movie, Herb & Dorothy is a worthy exception to that rule. On the surface it’s a simple story about a couple of devoted art collectors, scratch… Continue reading
