‘2 Dope Queens’ Season 2 serves all the looks and laughs:...

HBO's Game of Thrones Season 8 campaign asks who's coming #ForTheThrone. And the answer is  a pair of brilliant and beautiful Coco Khaleesis, Jessica Williams and Phoebe Robinson. Though they started out as podcasting royalty, thanks to the success of 2 Dope Queens, the comic duo conquered premium cable last year with a four-episode HBO…

‘Velvet Buzzsaw’ makes you scream and laugh at the same time:...

The following is a spoiler-free review for Velvet Buzzsaw. Horror movies. They'll make you laugh. They'll make you scream. And then, if you're really lucky, they'll make you do both. At the same time. Dan Gilroy, the visionary creator behind the 2014 thriller Nightcrawler, has once again teamed up with stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Rene…

Even on Saturday Night Live, a show that delights in pushing its actors into ever-stranger scenarios, he tends…

WWE dramedy ‘Fighting With My Family’ is a rowdy charmer: Review

The producer had long been a fixture, picking up future hits and hobnobbing with talent. It was also, we learned in 2017, where he perpetrated some terrible crimes. In 2018, Weinstein sat…

‘The Lego Movie 2’ is no ‘The Lego Movie’: Review

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part can't help that The Lego Movie already exists.  So maybe it's not really this film's fault that it can't generate the same surprise and wonder that its predecessor did, or that it had much higher expectations to live up to. There's probably nothing to be done about the…

Modern celebrity serial killer culture arguably started with Ted Bundy, a man known for his normcore good looks, charisma, and brutal rape and murder of at least thirty women in the 70s. In the new four-part Netflix docuseries Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes, true-crime aficionados get to hear excerpts from never-before-released interviews…

The studio has been on a tear remaking, remixing, and revisiting its old classics, to great box-office success; Mary Poppins Returns, with its nostalgia-inducing premise and family-friendly holiday release date, will surely be no different.…

Netflix's Dumplin' isn't built on rhinestones and stilettos. Yes, the small town comedic drama comes with plenty of that as-advertised pageant glam, but it finds crucial footing in a simple maxim from the Queen of Country: "Figure out who you are and do it on purpose." Originally told in Julie Murphy's YA novel of the…
