Don’t get me wrong—it’s bad. It’s just that you probably think it’s a blazing inferno chemical disaster fire, and it’s not. It’s more like a mildly alarming dumpster fire. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is not a good movie, and if you’re over the age of thirteen, it’s not an enjoyable one. Full Story

Since 1984, This Is Spinal Tap has been the gold standard of film satires, a flawless movie that uses the mockumentary format to lampoon pop culture and music in the 1980s. In the years since there have been worthy mockumentary successors—Drop Dead Gorgeous, What We Do in the Shadows—but no one has hit the mix of movie, music, and era the way that Spinal Tap does. Full Story

As you know, I don’t really care for musicals. There’s a seediness inherent in most musicals that I feel the singing and dancing completely erases (anyone who thinks The Sound of Music has a happy ending is nuts). But there are a few exceptions. I like Beauty and the Beast—it’s about bestiality and it’s a hugely successful Disney musical! This will never not be funny—and I’m partial to Moulin Rouge because Satine was dying of consumption the whole time. Full Story

I’m trying to decide if Joel Silver’s annual Memorial Day party is a star marker. Like whether or not there’s a threshold of fame/success/potential one has to reach to be invited. Or, you know, if it’s just a party and you go with who you know. But do they watch each other to see who’s there? And does it mean anything?

A report on Page Six came out last night that Disney is in a “panic” over Stars Wars: Rogue One not testing well, and has ordered four weeks of reshoots to tweak the movie. Four weeks of reshoots would be expensive and quite extensive, and it wouldn’t be unprecedented. Warner Brothers recently sent Suicide Squad back to production to fix a tone issue Full Story
