  • W. Kamau Bell returns to CNN to throw 'Shades'

    The flash of faces across the CNN promo spot is instantly recognizable, a swirl of anchors and reporters ubiquitous in these news-obsessed times. The last one, however, is not the like the others. It belongs to W. Kamau Bell, a stand-up comic whose previous cable foray was a short-lived late-night...

    Star-studded 'How to Be a Latin Lover' delivers broad laughs in two languages

    An A-lister in his native Mexico, Eugenio Derbez has yet to break into the American mainstream. However, “How to Be a Latin Lover” may be the film that finally introduces him to a wider audience with dialogue in both Spanish and English and plenty of familiar faces. Its humor is broad, but most...

    Overrated/Underrated: Let's remain guarded about 'Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2'

    UNDERRATED ‘Seed: The Untold Story’ on PBS: With the world struggling to navigate a crisis on seemingly every front, dedicating another hour to learn of another isn’t an easy proposition. That said, when the issue involves our food supply and roughly 94% of seed supplies vanishing in the wake of...

    TV This Week, April 30-May 6: 'Sense8,' 'American Gods' and more

    SUNDAY Your not-so-humble host finds himself in L.A. on the return of “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown.” 6 and 9 p.m. CNN Hailee Steinfeld, Miley’s kid sister Noah Cyrus and “America’s Got Talent” winner Grace Vanderwaal are among the youthful performers at “The 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards.”...

  • Mystery-thriller 'Grey Lady' bogs down in murky waters

    Mystery-thriller 'Grey Lady' bogs down in murky waters

    The convoluted, often ridiculously forced “Grey Lady” aims for the gravity of such other Bay State-set mystery-thrillers as “Mystic River” and “Gone Baby Gone,” but barely scratches the surface of those far more elevated films. It also seems like awfully curious, undistinguished material for veteran...

    John Mellencamp maintains a rebellious spirit with 'Sad Clowns & Hillbillies'

    At 65, John Mellencamp no longer chases drama. “I have found that life is a big enough adventure,” he says calling from his 86-acre property in Bloomington, Ind. “Young kids go to the movies to be scared. If we were together, I’d say to you, ‘Have you seen this mole on my arm?’ That’s scary enough;...

    Steamy drama 'Below Her Mouth' doesn't even buy you dinner first

    The sexy lost weekend subgenre — in which sexual connections provide an entry into emotional and intellectual intimacies — has gained traction in recent years featuring same-sex male couples, for example: “Paris 05:59” and Andrew Haigh’s “Weekend.” April Mullen’s “Below Her Mouth” seeks to do the...

  • Lust and gore abound in trashy horror film 'The Black Room'

    Lust and gore abound in trashy horror film 'The Black Room'

    Veteran exploitation filmmaker Rolfe Kanefsky has directed a handful of horror pictures over the years, but has spent more time helming soft-core erotica, which probably explains why his supernatural thriller “The Black Room” is unusually sexy. It’s a throwback to the days when B-movies loaded...

  • Despite chemistry of stars, Korean comedy 'The King's Case Note' is easily dismissed

    Despite chemistry of stars, Korean comedy 'The King's Case Note' is easily dismissed

    There’s at least one hyphen too many where the intermittently entertaining South Korean historical-mystery-adventure-comedy-drama “The King’s Case Note” is concerned. There’s a workable, quirky Holmes-Watson dynamic in this yarn about a king who sets out with the aid of a loyal but somewhat clueless...

    Trashy doc 'Casting JonBenet' feeds on viewers' worst impulses

    If a tabloid hive mind could invent its own perversely ideal homicide story, the Christmas 1996 murder of 6-year-old JonBenet Ramsey would be it, from the gruesomeness and suspicions surrounding the mother and father, to the botched investigation and exposure to the bizarre world of child beauty...

    War documentary 'Danger Close' lacks urgency of its predecessors

    While it adheres to the same first-person template that made last year’s “Citizen Soldier” such an immersive experience, “Danger Close,” the latest drama-infused war documentary by David Salzberg and Christian Tureaud, fails to convey a similar sense of imminent peril. It admittedly starts off...
