Friday movie roundup – Sept. 9


    Movies! Here are my last several reviews, including some short ones of summer movies I saw but didn’t review till now. Several recommended options in here:

    “Sully” (PG-13) C+
    “Other People” (NR) B-
    “Tickled” (R) A-
    “Hunt for the Wilderpeople” (PG-13) B+
    “Swiss Army Man” (R) B+
    “Mechanic: Resurrection” (R) C
    “De Palma” (R) B+

    At Vanity Fair (I’m fancy), I have a huge feature: 50 Things That Happened Because of “Star Trek,” one for each year of its existence.

    For Mental Floss, I wrote behind-the-scenes accounts of “Welcome to the Dollhouse” and “Sid and Nancy” (which I mistype “Side and Nancy” 95% of the time).
