Brigsby Bear

As far as I know, there has never been movie like “Brigsby Bear.” It’s a smart and unusual comedy about a guy fascinated with a TV character nobody has ever heard of. Why? Because he never existed. But now I’ve… Read More ›

Logan Lucky

My mother just told me she hasn’t heard of “Logan Lucky,” a comedy crime caper from director Steven Soderbergh. I’m not sure how it will financially perform at the box office, since August is the slowest month for movies, and… Read More ›
