A Dog’s Way Home is just good enough to get you choked up: EW review

A Dog’s Way Home is just good enough to get you choked up: EW...

We gave it a B- Is there any subgenre that’s more designed to put a lump in your throat than the dog-trying-to-find-their-way-home movie? If there is, I haven’t met it yet. So one walks into A Dog’s Way Home already armed with the knowledge that they’ll be reaching for the Kleenex before it’s all said…

Bill Maher responds to backlash over Stan Lee comments, tells comic fans to ‘grow...

It’s been more than two months since Marvel Comics creator Stan Lee died at the age of 95, and even longer since Bill Maher wrote a blog response that used Lee’s death to trash comic book culture. But Maher decided to use Friday’s Real Time on HBO to triple down on his earlier comments and…
CIA torture drama The Report is a sobering, well-crafted procedural: Sundance review

CIA torture drama The Report is a sobering, well-crafted procedural: Sundance review

We gave it an A- When then-U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld was asked about weapons of mass destruction at a news briefing in 2002, he gave a rambling answer about known knowns, known unknowns, and “unknown unknowns — the ones we don’t know we don’t know.” It was the kind of perfectly Orwellian doublespeak…

Behind the scenes of EW’s Men In Black: International cover story

The trailer for Men in Black: International hit the internet just before Christmas, but Entertainment Weekly‘s coverage of the long-awaited reboot began much earlier than that. Back in the summer of 2017, EW’s Leah Greenblatt was invited to visit the movie’s highly secretive London set. (Yes, even though the film sees the agents hitting different globe-trotting spots…
M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass is half empty: EW review

M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass is half empty: EW review

Regarded as a commercial come-down after the blockbuster success of The Sixth Sense, M. Night Shyamalan’s supernatural puzzle-box Unbreakable was unquestionably the work of a man ahead of the moment. Arriving in 2000, a comic-book movie fallow period between Tim Burton’s Batman films and the rise of the Marvel juggernaut, it was a new kind of…
Native Son is a raw, lyrical Richard Wright retelling: Sundance review

Native Son is a raw, lyrical Richard Wright retelling: Sundance review

In the opening minutes of Native Son, a young black man named Bigger (Ashton Sanders) is getting ready to meet the day; he checks his hair, picks out a shirt, and pulls a pistol out of his dresser drawer, setting it gently on top of copy of Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man. It’s a telling nod…
Jillian Bell breaks out in whip-smart comedy Brittany Runs a Marathon: Sundance review

Jillian Bell breaks out in whip-smart comedy Brittany Runs a Marathon: Sundance review

We gave it an A- Brittany is exactly the kind of fun big girls are supposed to be; she’s always ready for the next drink and the next joke and she never asks for too much. But what if she did? Brittany Runs a Marathon is the answer: a whip-smart comedy that manages to deliver genuinely funny…

Longtime R. Kelly reporter Jim DeRogatis is writing a book about accusations against singer

There is still more to be said about R. Kelly. In the wake of the six-part Lifetime docuseries Surviving R. Kelly, which investigated decades of sexual assault allegations against the iconic R&B singer (all of which he has strenuously denied), Abrams Books will be publishing an investigative book about R. Kelly by music reporter and…
Dick Cheney biopic Vice is fun, clever, and a little bit hollow: EW review

Dick Cheney biopic Vice is fun, clever, and a little bit hollow: EW review

There’s a moment about midway through Vice where a diffident Dick Cheney (Christian Bale), still some years away from the full flowering of self-regard, haltingly asks his White House boss Donald Rumsfeld (Steve Carell), “What do we…believe in?” There’s a long pause, and then Rumsfeld explodes into laughter, a barking-hyena chortle that carries down the hallway…

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js You recently watched Jake live out his Die Hard fantasies in a high-octane promo for the new season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
