    A flavorless mush meant to be spoon-fed to guys who really regret not returning Erik Prince's phone call.

    The Kid Who Would Be King

    ★★★½

    It's to Joe Cornish's credit that a movie about a young man who is obsessed with swords and defeating an all-powerful woman is this charming and funny.

    Life Itself

    In college, I heard about a torture in Greece in which an offender was locked inside a large brass bull and a large fire lit underneath, literally roasting the criminal to death. Apparently, due to the way the bull was constructed, the long, anguished screams of the victims were muffled into sounding like the groans and bellows of a bull. There's no way of knowing why I thought of that while watching this.
