The virus isn’t destroying Hollywood so much as it’s accelerating shifts that were already in motion.
Among the many lasting cultural changes this pandemic is poised to bring about will be serious shifts in the entertainment industry.
The shortcomings of the woke ‘Birds of Prey’ film showed that Hollywood has yet to learn its lesson that audiences want to be entertained, not lectured.
‘Maleficent: Mistress of Evil’ is a boring fairy tale that forgets what fairy tales are all about. Instead of trying to show us the dark side of fairy stories, Disney should remember that it’s the light that keeps us coming back to theaters.
You know something’s terribly wrong when you go to a horror movie at the theater, and the terror of your real-life experience infinitely surpasses any of the frightening imagery on screen.
Two longtime Hollywood producers say the lack of family fare is a major factor behind Hollywood’s slump—and they’re doing something about it.
‘Dunkirk’ is not a war movie in the mold of ‘Saving Private Ryan,’ ‘We Were Soldiers,’ or any of the hundreds of other war films that have come before it.
Because of their strong, simple moral themes, critics refuse to respect the honest work and ingenuity put into the ‘Transformers’ series.
Tom Cruise’s summer blockbuster offers horror, romance, and an all-American hero—but it also has a strong message regarding the death cult of individualism.
Too often, Hollywood gives us attractive villains and bad-boy heroes. Our narratives are morally muddy. Thankfully, ‘Wonder Woman’ avoids this pitfall.
There’s a lot to like in this eighth ‘Fast and Furious’ installment—but sadly, it loses sight of some key elements that have made the franchise enjoyable.
This is essentially a slasher movie in space. And despite its talented cast and eye-popping effects, ‘Life’ doesn’t offer much substance beneath the sizzle.
The film proffers a bleak, hopeless world in which the only hero to be found—Wolverine—embraces endless violence, and cannot offer redemption.
The newest Wolverine movie transcends genre, delivering stellar performances and a plot full of loss, pain, hope, and redemption. This is a must-see film.
Matt Damon’s new film about The Great Wall and zombie-dragons is the perfect movie. And by “perfect,” I mean one that will make lots of money.
The history of the McDonald’s franchise proffers viewers a fascinating look at capitalism and community, greed and growth.
This film about a young black gay man largely transcends politics, offering instead a poignant story about meaning and belonging.
‘Passengers’ tells us a lot about progressive assumptions regarding society, individualism, and what it means to be human.
‘Allied’ is a fascinating, intense film—but it would be even better if it the story’s central tension were allowed to fully percolate.
