Bombshell

Mad Max: Fury Road felt like some kid rambling on about a dream he had after watching The Road Warrior on a sugar high. Bombshell is the caffeine-crazed daydream of a CNN reporter who got bored while watching the Showtime network’s The Loudest Voice. That seven-part series was a little too thoughtfully plodding while analyzing the rise and fall… Continue reading Bombshell

The Addams Family

The marketing and promotion team for the new animated Addams Family, including pushing Addams-themed pancakes and other menu items at IHOP, has been propagandizing the new film as the Addams’ “first ever animated comedy” when that’s not exactly accurate. Some may remember the short-lived Addams Family cartoons in 1973 and then again in 1991, not to mention an… Continue reading The Addams Family

Hobbs & Shaw

Luke Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) and Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) in "Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw," directed by David Leitch.

Fans with moral fortitude knew to boycott 2017’s The Fate of the Furious over the repulsive development that crime lord Deckard Shaw was actually invited to a cookout after becoming a good guy in a convoluted twist – because, of course, there was a free seat at the table because Shaw had killed team member… Continue reading Hobbs & Shaw

Gary Gray is hell-bent and determined to make this franchise into a Marvel comic book with globetrotting James Bond location shooting. Blackmailed by Cipher (a terrorist played by a dreadlocked Charlize Theron), Dom (Vin Diesel) goes rogue, putting “the… Continue reading The Fate of the Furious

The Huntsman: Winter’s War

This dark fantasy has a 7-year gap between being a prequel and ultimately a sequel to 2012’s Snow White and the Huntsman, where Chris Hemsworth saves Snow White from the Evil Queen Ravenna, whose sister Freya (played by Emily Blunt) has been traumatized by an emotional riff caused to manifest her ice powers. Even when the… Continue reading The Huntsman: Winter’s War
