Thirty years later, "A League of Their Own" receives a major makeover in a narratively ambitious but uneven Amazon series, providing timely filters on the World War II-era drama while dialing down the laughs.

'Secret Headquarters' reveals a too-familiar teen twist on the superhero formula


Created: Fri, 12 Aug 2022 14:37:15 GMT

Author:

The occasional head-scratching over why movies get sent directly to streaming isn't an issue with "Secret Headquarters," a spin on superheroes that tilts a lot closer to Disney Channel territory than Marvel. The real surprise is that the film was ever earmarked for a theatrical release before cooler heads prevailed, prompting it to land, unspectacularly, on Paramount+.

Created: Fri, 12 Aug 2022 14:35:15 GMT

Author:

"Day Shift" is about vampires, but it's one of those Frankenstein-like movies stitched together from used parts, with Jamie Foxx as a family man version of Marvel's Blade, mashed up with horror and buddy comedy. It's the kind of star-driven vehicle that yields obvious benefits to Netflix even if, qualitatively speaking, it doesn't deserve to see the light of day.

'Bullet Train' moves plenty fast


Created: Fri, 05 Aug 2022 18:30:05 GMT

Author:

"Bullet Train" certainly moves at an appropriately brisk pace, with Brad Pitt heading a sprawling cast. But the breakneck action is offset by a smart-alecky tone that proves both uneven and occasionally too cute for its own good, along with a mashup of styles -- from the music to the visuals -- that comes across like a Quentin Tarantino wannabe, with a dash of "Deadpool" for good measure.

Author:

"The Beatles: Get Back" set a very high bar for musical nostalgia, but "My Life As a Rolling Stone" is no slouch, breaking the four band members into their own dedicated hours, with extensive access to the three surviving members and a who's who of rock voices serving as the chorus. Yes, you can't always get what you want, but for Rolling Stones fans, this should come close.

'The Sandman' finally fulfills the dream of adapting Neil Gaiman's acclaimed comic


Created: Fri, 05 Aug 2022 13:49:11 GMT

Author:

After years of failed attempts to bring Neil Gaiman's acclaimed and surreal comic to the screen, Netflix finally creates a home for "The Sandman," armed with enough top-notch British guest stars to populate a Harry Potter movie.
