Cranky Hanke’s Screening Room: Are We Anti-Anti-War Movies?

Ken Hanke | 05/16/2008 | 27 Comment(s)

Each and every one of the films in question have indeed shaken a finger at the viewer — and they’ve done so without any distancing. It’s one thing to suggest that we as a people might have bungled something in the past, or that we were somehow not as attentive or aware as we might have been. It’s another thing to lecture the viewer that they’re doing the same right now.

Cranky Hanke’s Screening Room: Movie-going malaise

Ken Hanke | 05/09/2008 | 30 Comment(s)

Yes, I’ve got it. Call it the movie-going malaise. The cinematic blues. The crummy picture collywobbles. Whatever you call it, it ain’t pretty.

Cranky Hanke’s Screening Room: 100% All Talking! All Singing! All Dancing!

Ken Hanke | 05/02/2008 | 14 Comment(s)

Choosing three of my favorite musical films for the library’s annual “Spring Musicals” series got me thinking about the musical film in general and how a great many people absolutely can’t stand the genre. It’s a stance I’ve never understood.

Cranky Hanke’s Screening Room: ‘Great’ Movies You Just Don’t Like

Ken Hanke | 04/25/2008 | 112 Comment(s)

Bearing in mind the limitations of my own frame of reference and the fact that I might suddenly have an artistic epiphany somewhere down the road, I offer for your amusement — or argument — a small selection of “great” movies I just don’t like and haven’t liked for years.

Cranky Hanke’s Screening Room: So you want to be a movie critic?

Ken Hanke | 04/18/2008 | 20 Comment(s)

If you’re thinking about becoming a film critic, don’t do it. It’s a foolhardy proposition under the best of circumstances.

Cranky Hanke’s Screening Room: The movie that changed my life

Ken Hanke | 04/11/2008 | 6 Comment(s)

Truth to tell, there are several movies that could be said to have changed my life over the years, but the one that stands out in my mind as a special kind of turning point is the 1967 film Casino Royale, a movie that was savaged by critics at the time of its release (which didn’t prevent it from being the second biggest money-maker of the year) and is still much maligned by folks who take the James Bond films seriously.

Cranky Hanke’s Screening Room: What makes an ‘Asheville movie’?

Ken Hanke | 04/04/2008 | 32 Comment(s)

I’ve been reviewing movies here since late 2000 and have noticed a tendency — and I’ve mentioned this before — for some movies to have an unusually long shelf-life in Asheville. Why is this?

Cranky Hanke’s Screening Room: Who killed the Whodunit?

Ken Hanke | 03/28/2008 | 5 Comment(s)

I thought it might be interesting to dust off a handful of “golden age” detective movies from the early years of sound. I admit the five titles chosen are, with one exception, a rather quirky and personal selection. It does, however, represent the basics of a genre that seems to be lost to us for good.

Cranky Hanke’s Screening Room: Movie selling, hyping and shilling

Ken Hanke | 03/21/2008 | 23 Comment(s)

That fine old phrase “truth in advertising” is not one you often find applied to the movies, and if you do, it’s probably a lie.

Cranky Hanke’s Screening Room: Fickle fashions in film

Ken Hanke | 03/14/2008 | 9 Comment(s)

Works of art shouldn’t be given a free pass just because they’re old, or because someone somewhere once wrote about how great they were. What worries me is whether or not many of these films and filmmakers are being re-evaluated, or if they’ve simply been shunted to the side to make way for the flavor of the week. All too often, that seems to be the case.

Cranky Hanke’s Screening Room: In praise of trash

Ken Hanke | 03/07/2008 | 25 Comment(s)

There’s a common perception that my tastes in film are strictly of the “elitist” variety. That’s an accurate picture, but it’s hardly the complete one. I have always contended that no one who truly loves movies doesn’t also love at least a certain quantity of trash.

Cranky Hanke’s Screening Room: The Unwilling Moviegoer

Ken Hanke | 02/29/2008 | 12 Comment(s)

A couple weeks back, someone posted a comment about an overealous audience member at a showing of No Country for Old Men. At that time, I promised I’d tell some tales about memorable audiences — or persons in them at any rate — and I’m here to make good on that promise (or threat).

Cranky Hanke’s Screening Room: And the Oscar goes to ... Norbit?

Ken Hanke | 02/22/2008 | 12 Comment(s)

If you want something to really worry about, scan down the whole list of nominations ... and you’ll find a ticking time-bomb of potential embarassment of untold proportions. See it? Yes, it’s the Best Achievement in Makeup category. There are three nominees—La Vie en Rose, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End and—Max Factor, save us—Norbit.
