Stale jokes and hypocrisy abound in ‘Deadpool’ (2016)

(02/28/16 11:01pm)

Tim Miller’s directorial debut “Deadpool”(2016) joins the recent movement of postmodern, subversive superhero films such as “Guardians of the Galaxy”(2014) and “Kingsman: The Secret Service”(2014). Starring Ryan Reynolds as the wisecracking, fourth-wall breaking, red-clad antihero, the film lavishes in its gory, scatological excess and attempts to dismantle all the tropes of its Marvel forebears. It even pokes fun at Reynolds’s box office flop “Green Lantern”(2011)—“Don’t make me wear green,” Deadpool mocks. But behind its subversive mask lies a film that feels anything but rebellious.

(02/22/16 11:01pm)

“Razzle dazzle ‘em, give ‘em a show that’s so splendiferous, row after row will grow vociferous!” The razzle dazzle of Prohibition-era Chicago, referenced in the show’s lyrics, came to life at the Hopkins Center on Friday, where the theater department presented its production of “Chicago,” the award-winning musical that premiered in 1975.

"The Witch" (2015) falls short of its aim

(02/21/16 11:00pm)

There is no boil, boil, toil and trouble, hooked noses or broomsticks to be found in “The Witch” (2015), the debut feature from Robert Eggers. Set in pre-Salem witch trial New England, the film takes folklore and written narratives from the era and spins them into a period piece of unsettling magnitude. Eggers spotlights this rarely studied era, and captures the paranoiac underpinnings that led to the mass hysteria of the 1692 witch-hunts.
