Toy Story 2, Wisconsin Death Trip, Beyond the Clouds, End of Days

Written by Armond White on . Posted in Arts & Film, Posts

It doesn’t sound like much–just a collection of old photographs taken around Black River Falls, WI, between 1885 and 1899–coupled with news clippings from the local paper. But the photographs–of farmers, uncomfortable-looking families, [&hellip

Written by Matt Zoller Seitz on . Posted in Arts & Film, Posts

For an Arnold Schwarzenegger film, the apocalyptic action-adventure End of Days is pretty good. But when all is said and done, that’s all it is–another Arnold movie, made with a certain artistry and energy but incapable of rising beyond competence because its star is a walking, talking sight gag.
