Hobbs and Shaw: an unimpressive addition to the Fast & Furious catalog

If one franchise could safely secure the title of most unexpected longevity in film history, it would most likely be the “Fast & Furious” series. The original film, titled exactly that in 2001, was a moderate success. It did well with audiences, but to critics it was essentially a “Point Break” (1991) remake if you...

Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood may be one of the better summer films

Quentin Tarantino’s new film, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” is pretty much what one would expect from Tarantino rewriting 1960s history for his own art, much like he did with WW2 in “Inglourious Basterds” (2009) or the Civil War in “Django Unchained” (2012). If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like if real life, and...

As most who lived during that decade or have extensively researched it can attest to, though, it was also a period that ended on a sour note, thanks to the violence and addiction issues that ran rampant...

Yesterday should be a stellar movie, but it’s just OK

Danny Boyle’s “Yesterday” is the second film this summer season to feature a classic rock soundtrack, and it hits theaters one month after “Rocketman,” and a month before “Blinded by the Light.” As someone who’s considered the Beatles her favorite band since high school, it’s been really hard for me to buy into Hollywood...
