Daniel Barnes @ the SN&R/CSIndy (5/21 issues)

index*In this year’s SN&R summer movie preview, me and Jim Lane pick our most anticipated films of the season.  My portion of the Summer Movie Preview was also reprinted in the Colorado Springs Independent, and will run in next week’s San Antonio Current.

*My Far from the Madding Crowd review was reprinted in this week’s Colorado Springs Independent.

*The oddball Swedish offering The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared is about as lighthearted and inconsequential as a dark comedy dealing with mass murder and nihilistic destruction can possibly get.

*Taking its cue from the sort of pandering nostalgia that usually gets peddled to Baby Boomers, Mat Whitecross’ irritating Spike Island follows a teenage gang of the Stone Roses’ superfans in 1990 Manchester, but it’s much more Detroit Rock City than Rock n’ Roll High School.
