Review: Captain Cursed

posted: 05/26/2017 1:52 a.m. Discuss

For a series entirely predicated on ancient nautical curses, it's ironic that its star, Johnny Depp, has long been afflicted with one of his own: The Curse of the Giant Franchise Movie Series. In his fifth (or is it sixth?) reprise as Captain Jack Sparrow, it's pretty clear this is a marriage of extreme financial convenience and little else.

Review: Baywatch

Imagine you're minding your own business, sitting at a bar somewhere, drinking a decent domestic, noshing on their complimentary bowl of sesame sticks contemplatively, and this dude suddenly comes up to you with a big grin on his face, like the hilarity is about to explode out of him. "I've got a joke for you," he says, sitting on the stool next to you and annoyingly pushing your beer to one side. "But it's totally, totally stupid." You tell him that's OK, that sometimes dumb jokes told properly can still be pretty funny. He leans in, you can smell his breath, which is as if his tongue was coated in bubonic plague. "OK," he continues, "I'm telling you, it's super dumb, cuz I'm a super-dumb guy and I love dumb jokes like this."

Resilient Alien beats Guardians

posted: 05/26/2017 1:48 a.m. Discuss

After almost 40 years, audiences are still interested in the Alien universe. Ridley Scott's Alien: Covenant, from 20th Century Fox, dethroned Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which had topped the box office for two straight weeks. Meanwhile, Warner Bros.' Everything, Everything and Fox's Diary of a Wimpy Kid sequel battled for those not interested in R-rated scares.

American spins Egyptian comic

"Satire is not just fun and games," says Egyptian comedian Bassem Youssef. He amused and incensed his country's audiences as host of Al-Bernameg (The Show), which ran weekly from 2011 to 2013.

Review: The Lovers

posted: 05/26/2017 1:47 a.m. Discuss

Affection and attraction play by their own confounding rules in The Lovers, Azazel Jacobs' mordant comedy about a married couple who can't remain faithful even to their infidelities. Smart, unpredictable performances by Debra Winger and Tracy Letts and an uncommonly crucial score by Mandy Hoffman ensure that the picture's odd nature won't be misconstrued as indecisiveness; though commercial appeal is limited, older moviegoers should respond particularly well at art houses.

Happy birthday. You're in the driver's seat, but not all of the time, which is good, because sometimes it's more fun when you don't know exactly where things are going. June brings stability, while August is more about the freedom to pursue what you imagine. A unique partnership sets projects sailing in October.

DEAR REV. GRAHAM: I'm so ashamed of some of the things I've done that I can't even imagine telling God about them. I'd be so embarrassed. I guess that means God will never forgive me, although I don't think He'd forgive me anyway.
