It is often said that war is hell. Well, it can also be pretty absurd as well and, if you’re going to wander through the absurd side of hell, who better to be your tour guide than Tina Fey? In the movie “Whiskey Tango Foxtrot,” Fey plays Kim Baker, a real life war correspondent wh... [More]

Most people know the CliffsNotes version of Jesse Owens’ biography. They know the African-American track star won a bunch of medals in the 1936 Olympics in Berlin and poked a whole lot of holes in Hitler’s myth of Aryan supremacy. As you would expect, the complete story of his life was ... [More]

“Zoolander 2” is a dumb movie. Of course, that is kind of the point. “Zoolander” was a dumb movie, but when it came out 15 years ago (holy Lord, does that make me feel old), its so-lowbrow-it-is-highbrow skewering of the fashion world felt fresh and surprising. But even thou... [More]

We are quickly reaching the point of superhero oversaturation. We know every spandex-clad trope by heart; from the origin stories all the way through to the reboots, we have been there and done that. Which means now is the perfect time for “Deadpool.” Deadpool is a character deep down t... [More]

What I love the most about the Coen Brothers is their ability to gleefully hop and skip from one genre to the next all while delivering a certain off-kilter sensibility that permeates every one of their films. From hard-boiled dramas, to Westerns, to outright comedies, the Coens have uncompromisingl... [More]

A marriage is full of history, especially one that lasts nearly half a century. The movie “45 Years” takes a look at an English couple who, on the verge of their 45th wedding anniversary, receive news that begins to paint that history in a different light. This is a slight movie, and wh... [More]

Hollywood has never been afraid of going to the well once too often. That is how we wind up with something like “Kung Fu Panda 3,” a not-terrible, but completely unnecessary sequel in an animated franchise that probably should have stopped at “Kung Fu Panda 2.” But there is ... [More]

If you were dreaming up comedy pairings, Ice Cube and Kevin Hart might not be the first duo that would pop to mind. But after their buddy-cop movie “Ride Along” became a surprise hit in 2014, these two actors have a bankable chemistry that can’t be denied. Back again with “R... [More]

“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” is probably the most review-proof movie ever released. The reality is it is more of a cultural phenomenon than an actual movie. Whether these movies are any good or not really doesn’t matter. George Lucas proved this by releasing a trilogy of prequel... [More]

“Moby Dick” is one of those foundational tales, a man-versus-nature bedrock, which has permeated so many works of fiction that followed. But the most sensational part of the story, the part with all the boat sinking and angry, giant whales, was based on a very true event. “In the... [More]
