Created: Fri, 15 Jan 2021 17:47:59 GMT

Author:

The government-sanctioned harassment of Martin Luther King Jr. provides the chilling spine of "MLK/FBI," a documentary timed to the annual holiday for the civil rights icon. Director Sam Pollard's film also raises an interesting question -- namely, what historians and journalists owe King's legacy in terms of releasing material amassed specifically in an effort to sully his name.

'Batwoman' gets a new lead, but Season 2 looks like the same flawed show


Created: Sat, 16 Jan 2021 15:49:09 GMT

Author:

After a first season that never quite got off the ground creatively, "Batwoman" announced that original star Ruby Rose would be leaving but that the series would hang around without her. The contortions necessary to arrange that baton (or Batarang) pass mostly fizzle in the opening episodes, fueling a sense that this CW drama might be flying on fumes.

'Locked Down' turns quarantine into a romantic heist movie for the Covid time capsule


Created: Wed, 13 Jan 2021 21:45:54 GMT

Author:

Anyone who has felt their relationship tested by quarantine (no need to raise hands, we see you) will at least partially relate to "Locked Down," which takes the idea of a couple trapped by those circumstances, then builds an improbable heist plot around it. Thanks to Chiwetel Ejiofor and Anne Hathaway it's mildly watchable, but mostly an artifact that might look better after a few years in the Covid time capsule.

Created: Wed, 13 Jan 2021 21:18:24 GMT

Author:

Before suiting up as Marvel's Falcon again on Disney+, Anthony Mackie produces and stars in "Outside the Wire," a futuristic action vehicle that thinks inside the box and feels as generic as its title. Netflix has found an eager audience for such adrenaline-rush movies -- perhaps especially with theaters hobbled -- but this is a wire-thin addition to the "You might like" tier.

'Mr. Mayor' elects Ted Danson to play TV's latest politician


Created: Wed, 06 Jan 2021 19:32:12 GMT

Author:

Ted Danson has a way of classing up even a so-so premise, and so it is with "Mr. Mayor," a new sitcom from the "30 Rock" tandem of Robert Carlock and Tina Fey. Returning to NBC fresh off "The Good Place," the show allows its star to cut loose as L.A.'s unlikely new mayor, which is a pretty good place to start.

Chadwick Boseman's tragic death will draw understandable attention to "Ma Rainey's Black Bottom," which represents his final role.
