Knowing absolutely nothing about boxer Roberto Duran, I was intrigued going into his biopic, Hands of Stone. Biopics often work better the less you know about the subject—dramatic license is less distracting—but then, if the biopic is too broad and messy, you can feel even more lost because you have no frame of reference for what’s going on. Full Story

I don’t know if you know this, but the internet can be frustrating. No, but seriously. That whole expression ‘this is why we can’t have nice things’ is always on my mind. When Beyoncé drops LEMONADE, there are people who, instead of appreciating it, say “Yeah but white women are disrespected too!”, unable to see ‘right, but this isn’t about that’. Full Story

The catch-up continues with Meryl Streep’s latest Oscar vehicle, Florence Foster Jenkins.

Playing a little catch up as we close out August, starting with Todd Phillips’ latest bro-nightmare movie, War Dogs. For a director known for comedies—namely The Hangover trilogy, but also Road Trip, Old School, and Due Date, among others—Phillips doesn’t seem to like directing comedies. Full Story

I feel like I should apologize for not getting to The Get Down sooner. But now that I’m here, I’m looking around what feels like a mostly empty room and wondering where everyone else is. Have you watched The Get Down? No? Why not? Maybe it doesn’t look like your bag—it’s a show co-created by Baz Luhrmann, he of the lurid cabaret colors and overly staged musical numbers. Full Story

At Comic-Con Marvel had several videos that played during their panel, but they only released one, a new trailer for Doctor Strange. Everything else stayed under the seal of Hall H, because it is possible to show stuff in Hall H and not have it pirated, you just have to consult with thirteen dark wizards and make a sacrifice to Black Phillip, like Marvel does under every blood moon. Full Story
