The latest Disney cartoon opened with a pandemic dampened way under $30 million weekend, clearing just over $40 since Thursday. Those aren’t typical Disney toon numbers, and give away what a hard sell this script by committee, Lin Manuel Miranda … Continue reading
Oh come on, not THIS crap again! You’d figure six “Resident Evil” movies would have been enough, a seriously-lowbrow but seriously successful video-game film franchise that helped Milla Jovovich put her kids through college and what not. But her character, … Continue reading

An exasperated Monaco developer wants to teach his lazy, insufferable “Spoiled Brats” a lesson by pretending they’ve lost it all in what turns out to be a tepid remake of the Mexican comedy “We Are the Nobles.” It’s a plot … Continue reading
Generations before Colin Kaepernick took a knee, not all that long after Jackie Robinson retired, and shortly after Althea Gibson broke the color barrier in tennis, Arthur Ashe took to the world’s most famous tennis tourneys, brought his game to … Continue reading
