The Ayn-Credibles

The Ayn-Credibles

Superheroes as objectivist theory
I know it's somewhat insane to search for philosophical meaning in cartoons, but something about "The Incredibles 2" rubbed me the wrong way.

Two Hand Touching

Tag aims for the heart
So far, 2018 has been a dismal year for comedies.

Terror in the Blood

"Hereditary" will mess you up
Horror movies are a lot like Frankenstein's monster.

Here's What's Hot

Missing Angel, guilty pleasures and cosmic death cults in this month's dispatch
Isn't this exciting?? Another month brings another episode of May the Source Be With You and our look at the most interesting things coming out of pop culture related to streaming, podcasts and DVD and Blu releases.

Whack Ass

There's a moment toward the end of "Action Point" that encapsulates why the film is such a huge missed opportunity.

He Knows Kung Fu

"Upgrade" punches for the stars
"Upgrade" has a great, if not entirely original, concept.

Handling Business

The latest in the Star Wars franchise: fun and forgettable
The fairly unheralded arrival of "Solo: A Star Wars Story," is the first time I can remember when the release of a new Star Wars movie doesn't feel like an event.

Blockbuster Mania

There's really no such thing as the summer blockbuster anymore.

Saving Private Ryan

"Deadpool 2" murders the original
"Deadpool 2" is the "Saving Private Ryan" of superhero movies—but not because it's a genre classic (although it is) and not because it deconstructs superhero movies (although it does).

Lionized Subject

A perhaps too-positive portrayal of a Supreme Court Justice
There are three kinds of documentaries: those that lionize their subjects, those that attack their subjects, and those that attempt to provide a balanced, objective perspective.

The Good Kind of McCarthyism

"Life of the Party" balances heart with laughs
"Life of the Party" is not a cool movie.
