In the developing days of America’s most popular art form, Harold Lloyd climbed higher than any other star.
And also Starz and FilmStruck.
It might be that my brain is dying, but I actually enjoyed most of “Skyscraper,” the new movie in which Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson runs around a tall building that’s on fire.
It took eight years, but we’ve finally got another feature film from Debra Granik (director/co-writer of “Winter’s Bone”). It’s called “Leave No Trace,” and it’s brilliant.
“Skyscraper,” which opens Thursday, leans heavily on the “Die Hard” template — with a lone hero running, jumping and killing terrorists while trying to save his family and/or the hostages.
