Mahershala Ali in Talks to Star in ‘True Detective’ Season 3

July 4, 2017

The first season of True Detective was one of the most stunning pieces of prestige television in recent memory, featuring magnetic chemistry between leads Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey, and solidifying McConaugney’s rise as a serious actor (we can probably also thank the show for popularizing the “McConaissance”).

‘Glow’ Review: Netflix’s Lady Wrestling Drama is Empowering and Surprising

July 4, 2017

I’m not what you would call a fan of wrestling. The idea of people so obviously pretend-fighting in a ring in such dramatic fashion just seems so very silly. And bro-y. Not even Mickey Rourke’s dramatic comeback in The Wrestler, which illuminated the heart and camaraderie of the sport, made me change my mind about […]

A catnip cast and director Lucia Aniello’s Broad City instincts are drowned by gender-flipped formula not shaken up enough. If girls will be boys then show boys how they can do raunchy better. Rough Night wouldn’t be fresh or […]

Demetrius Shipp Jr. uncannily channels Tupac, but ‘All Eyez on Me’ is otherwise flat

July 4, 2017

Playing the part of Shakur is newcomer Demetrius Shipp Jr., who looks eerily like the rapper, channeling Shakur in a performance where actor and real person ultimately meld together. Especially once he gets into his performance flow, the physical comparison is uncanny, in his bobbing, lanky-limbed dance movements and head-swiveling delivery. In recreations of television […]

Somehow, ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ isn’t as painful as others

July 4, 2017

That’s the only way to explain the feeling that Transformers: The Last Knight isn’t nearly as painful to sit through as Bay’s four previous exploding toy boxes. All that destruction, from Soldier Field to Shia LeBeouf’s career. Nearly 10 hours of cacophonous action wrapped around insipid dialogue over the past decade has broken me, hands […]
