they really gotta update that sign
Alien. All About Eve. Raising Arizona. And that’s just the A’s. Three-quarters of a century is plenty of time to get your shit together, and for every Garfield: Tale of Two Kitties or Big Momma’s House they churned out, Fox made up for it with a Big Trouble In Little China or Vanishing Point. Brattle’s retrospective sorta forgoes their more traditional classics in favor of middle school sleepover fare, meaning fewer vintage starlets and more Lone Bikers of the Apocalypse. We’re totally down.
