For this cinema cynic, who glories in the misfires and crater-producing duds, there is not as much wreckage to pick through this year, but there are still ample failures to be found.
Summer 2017 overall was a dismal session for Hollywood, with the total box office nearly 16 percent lower than the previous year.
I most enjoyed that Hollywood’s nod to girl power in ‘Cars 3’ represented reality, not Lightning McQueen being woke. Well, as much as anthropomorphic cars live in reality.
With ‘Baby Driver,’ Edgar Wright infuses the heist genre with an originality that’s consistent with his previous work.
Sweetness and self-awareness is missing from the film, depriving the audience of what works best for the stars, the ‘Baywatch’ franchise, and an update of this kind.
As Hollywood congratulates itself for the money-making frame that just ended, allow me to point out the attempts that will not lead to bonus payouts in the executive offices.
An interview with the screenwriter and producer behind television’s inexplicable summer movie franchise.
Hollywood has forgotten how to tell a story.
