The film is the first one in over a decade to feel narratively unnecessary. The weird continuity, which put Tokyo Drift way into the future, gave the next three films something of a goal and an end. But with the current continuity wrapped up, and many core characters killed off or written out, this eighth film can’t shake the feeling that it only exists because the last film made $1.5 billion worldwide. The whole thing has a “going through the motions” feeling hurts a movie that lacks the sizzle and pop of the prior three films. … [Read more...] about Fate Of The Furious Early Review Roundup

We arrive at the grassy front yard of a house, where … [Read more...] about Uganda’s ‘Ghetto President’: How Bobi Wine Went from Dancehall Grooves to Revolutionary Politics
In some of these communities, leaders came forward to seek help and information from county officials. What came back, over and over, though, was ringing silence, as health-department representatives shrugged and hung up. “In Karnes County alone, we had two blowouts last week, one that covered everything in a coat of oil and methane, including people’s homes and livestock,” says Sharon Wilson, the state organizer in Texas for a national nonprofit called Earthworks, which helps small communities, like Karnes City in southeast Texas, fight back against billionaire drillers. In another disaster, a well leaked methane for days, but when Wilson called the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, she was told that they wouldn’t send an inspector because she didn’t “live in the area.” “I told him I was only calling because the residents there tried to, but couldn’t get a response from him.” (A spokeswoman for TCEQ told Rolling … [Read more...] about What’s Killing the Babies of Vernal, Utah?
