Friday movie roundup – July 16

Go see “Inception” (review at Cinematical) because it is good and trippy and smart and you will like it, the end.

And if you have to see “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” — because you have children or something — eh, it won’t hurt.

For further reading material, “Eric’s Bad Movies” at is about “Bangkok Dangerous” (keeping with the Nicolas Cage theme), while “What’s the Big Deal?” is about “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.” And perhaps you will also be interested in a Cinematical piece called “The Time I Got Obsessed with a ‘Raging Bull’ Inaccuracy.”

But go see “Inception,” and please do not speak to me until you have done so.
