The Wallander novels of Henning Mankell are the basis for the fine British crime series Wallander. The four series (seasons) of the show contain fifteen ninety-minute episodes – nine adaptations of one of the nine novels – that follow Wallander through seven years of his life.
The stark, serene and occasionally eerie landscapes of Sweden (the series was shot in and around the city of Ystad – where the novels are set) are used as both connective tissue (Wallander drives some distances between work, home and visiting his daughter) and as an emotional undercurrent (ranging from mysterious to unexpected comic relief) to the various mysteries and character arcs of the show.
Quick note: Cinderella is amazing in IMAX! Everything about its presentation – incredible sets, mind-blowing (and appropriate) effects and stunning costumes on appealing characters – is just gobsmackingly perfect in IMAX.

Tom Clancy never really got deeply into the story of how Jack Ryan came to be a hero, but Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit does a lovely job of filling in that background and grounding the character in today’s world. There’s not much we haven’t seen before, but Kenneth Branagh gives it some serious zip and Chris Pine makes a convincing Ryan.
Like a lot of movie buffs who’ve mostly enjoyed the transition of Marvel superheroes to film, I was intrigued by the trailers for Thor and turned off by its clumsily designed rash of posters. This behind-the-scenes featurette has won me over. check it out!
