Fantastic Four hits theaters this weekend, and while reviews were believed to be embargoed until tomorrow, a few critics have published their thoughts on the superhero reboot, and they are not positive. While there are currently only five reviews listed on Rotten Tomatoes, only one of them is positive, giving Fantastic Four a 20% "Rotten" rating thus far. That number will likely change when more reviews start flooding in tomorrow, but for now, we have a few excerpts of these reviews. Fantastic Four is a contemporary re-imagining of Marvel's original and longest-running superhero team, which centers on four young outsiders who teleport to an alternate and dangerous universe, which alters their physical form in shocking ways. Their lives irrevocably upended, the team must learn to harness their daunting new abilities and work together to save Earth from a former friend turned enemy. The plot is based on the Ultimate Fantastic Four comics, which feature much younger versions of these … [Read more...] about Fantastic Four Early Reviews: Worse Than Expected?
By Leslie CombemaleThose dedicated fans who read all the books in The Hunger Games series need no further impetus to see Mockingjay Part 1 in theaters. The only question relating to them is whether they will see it this weekend and help break all former records this box office powerhouse has shattered. To all other interested parties, rest assured; Mockingjay Part 1 is well worth the time. While it doesn't pack the excitement or suspense specific to the games themselves, it is no less fascinating or compelling to watch, and some might argue more so, even given its obvious position as a set-up for the inevitable Capital and District rebellion's final confrontation in Part 2.Mockingjay Part 1 allows its stars time and room to explore their characters in all their damage, motivation, and spirit to change their world and their current circumstances. Those who have become fans of the franchise have watched Jennifer Lawrence become a household name and rise to the top in Hollywood, and for … [Read more...] about The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1: Movie Review
Source: Pixabay This weekend marked the debut of “Crazy Rich Asians” – a remarkable movie on several fronts. Despite featuring the first all-Asian cast since “Joy Luck Club” (1993), the movie was #1 at the box offices and heralded as a Hollywood success. While the success of the movie has been attributed to a strong turn out from Asians and Asian Americans, it’s clear that the movie’s themes of love, family obligations, friendship and staying true to yourself has broader appeal. I won’t give too much of the movie away by noting that both the lead male and female roles—Nick Young (Henry Golding) and Rachel Chu (Constance Wu)—are NYU professors. While they share a common profession, Rachel is Asian American (raised in California) and Nick is Asian (from Singapore). The distinction between “Asian American” and “Asian” extends beyond identity politics. For example, recent … [Read more...] about “Crazy Rich Asians” in Higher Education
"The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench. A long plastic hallway where pimps and thieves run free and good men die like dogs. There is also a negative side." I don't want you to think that I make a habit of this, but last weekend, in the name of research, I spent an indulgent afternoon with the curtains drawn, sifting through a pile of old Sleeper photographs, press cuttings and band mementoes. Tucked away in the attic, behind a tub of creosote and something pungent that re-whitens grout, are a pair of cardboard boxes that contain every groove of vinyl Sleeper ever pressed, and every inch of domestic and international print coverage that our publicist deemed worthy of indexing and wrapping in plastic. I hadn't looked through any of these pictures and interviews since I moved house three years ago, and it was with some trepidation that I heaved the box on to the floor, split open the seal with a Stanley knife and tipped out its contents. There it was in black and white. … [Read more...] about My life as a pop star
