‘Spy’ flies high

Action comedy packed with laughs

We’ve reached the point where most of us can agree that Melissa McCarthy is pretty talented, right? Sure, there are going to be assorted contrarians and outliers who beg to differ, but for the majority of people, that statement is a relatively safe one.

Bro it goes – ‘Entourage’

Big-screen adaptation offers nothing new

In retrospect, it makes sense – a movie based on a television show about a movie star. It’s the sort of self-referential tail-swallowing for which Hollywood has always had a soft spot. Still, at the time, it was a bit surprising to hear that an “Entourage” movie had actually been made.

Even the most jaded spotlight-seeker will occasionally use their powers for good instead of stupidity.

King thriller a tale of literary obsession gone too far

There’s a touch of the obsessive inherent to literary fandom. When a reader – particularly a young reader – first discovers an author whose writing truly speaks to them, their devotion to their newfound favorite often increases exponentially, growing in leaps and bounds at a rapid pace.

Red Sox Report Card – May 2015

It didn’t seem like it could get much worse. And then it did.

The 2015 season has been a sad slog for the Boston Red Sox thus far. After an April spent mired in mediocrity, they managed to perform even worse in the month of May. No team in the American League had fewer wins than the 10 put up by Boston over the past month.

Disaster movie offers big action, few surprises

Hollywood sure does love destroying stuff on a large scale. It seems like any action movie worth its salt has to feature a massive amount of property damage; sometimes a film will lay waste to whole cities or countries. Increasingly, that destruction has come at the hands of outside forces, be they supervillains or aliens or what have you.
