    Inventing Anna

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Anna Delvey was an inevitability.

    Every follow, "like", and vanity-driven action that preceded her ascent to the top of the glitterati was going to result in Anna. We asked for her and she did not disappoint.

    Shonda Rhimes's latest Netflix confection revels in that delirious feast of "we did this" mania and Julia Garner's immediately iconic portrayal of the enigmatic protagonist is the perfect medium to unleash Delvey's chaotic, bingeable energy. And everything Anna does is indeed the picture of…

    Transformers: Age of Extinction

    β˜…β˜…β˜…

    Orgiastic techno carnage headlined by Mark Wahlberg, Bud Light, Good Year, and Beats by Dre featuring a sneakily effective cameo from Gucci. It could be split up into enough parts to make up a miniseries and counts among its talents a frenzied Stanley Tucci and Kelsey Grammer (single-handedly keeping Tom Kane in power). It's concrete proof that executing enormous jaw-droping displays of explosive spectacle in a lazily-written world in which women stop aging at 30 and all look like runway…

    A Perfect Pairing

    This is almost the equivalent of what I'd assume are the contents of one of those sudsy romance books I'd walk past as a kid on my way to the PokΓ©mon card section at Walmart. I say "almost" because this is utterly drained of any vicariously gratifying sexual elements (which, c'mon, is why anyone with a pulse is really checking this movie out). It coasts on Victoria Justice's formidable likeability and the combined beauty of Justice and the Queensland countryside.

    P.S. Whenever I see Justice, I miss the short-lived MTV series 'Eye Candy'.

    If I took this gig, five minutes into it, I'd heed the immortal words of Jamie Lee Curtis as Lindsay Lohan as Tess Coleman in the 2003 masterpiece "Freaky Friday": "Let's don't and say we did!"

    Wholesome Latino and Black representation in a horror film. We love to see it!

    Vampires vs. the Bronx is much more than the latest Netflix flavor of the week. In it's modest way, this mainstream-friendly vamp-hunting jaunt is a big deal, not only because it is led by a trio of adorable kids who happen to be people of color, but because it also manages to imbue a dusty genre mainstay with a vitally urgent message that is very much…

    Folks, meet the single most annoying character of the 21st century. No, I'm not referring to the titular monster but to his captor, a little girl who will make you beg for the sweet relief of total annihilation mere moments after meeting her. I'm calling it now, everyone else can go home. Mimi is the most obnoxiously spoiled brat you'll ever know and boy does she spoil what could've been silly divertive fun. She is the bane of anyone who…
