That’s an actual joke in the movie, that the heist at the center of the film is “Ocean’s 7-11”. And it’s appropriate, because Logan Lucky, a perfectly delightful heist flick from one of the best crafters of heist flicks, is a beat-for-beat remake of 2001’s Ocean’s 11 remake. Full Story

Idris Elba stepped out last night in London in crutches. Do you know how hard it is to look good in crutches? And not just look good but look sexy? This man is walking in crutches and there’s been no change to his sexy meter. Full Story

In my Kidnap review, I talked about the Trashy Movie Paradox and how if you want to make a truly trashy movie, you have to commit to the trash. Well, The Hitman’s Bodyguard isn’t a trashy movie, but it is super, super dumb, and everyone involved commits to the dumbness—and the badness that follows—and it ends up being the kind of dumb-fun action flick Kidnap couldn’t quite manage to be. Full Story
