‘Life’ Review: Jake Gyllenhaal Battles Space Monster (and Familiarity)

1 hour ago

They’re still making “Alien” movies, so if you’re going to create a horror film about people trapped in outer space with a monster, you had better bring something new to the table. And while “Life” doesn’t entirely escape comparison — in space, there’s still no one who can hear you scream — it provides enough chills and tension to stand on its own. Take the space-station setting which, along with advanced wire-hiding technology, allows director Daniel Espinosa (“Safe House”) to double down on the portrayal of weightlessness, and “Life” exploits this opportunity at every corner for drama (one of the. »

‘CHiPS’ Review: Dax Shepard Commits Highway Slobbery With Unfunny Redo of 70s Series

3 hours ago

No one really asked for a “CHiPS” movie, right? As far as can be determined from the rowdy, laugh-challenged mess that is writer-director-star Dax Shepard’s badges-and-bikes action comedy, baked-in nostalgia for the cheesy ’70s-’80s slab of filler prime time is barely evident. After all, the presumed audience probably wasn’t born when Larry Wilcox and Erik Estrada retired their helmets, shades and Kawasakis. Besides, the original TV show about California Highway Patrol studs was already its own light-entertainment parody of sorts, so apart from keeping the names Jon Baker and Ponch, you approach this “CHiPS” for what it is: one more. »

In a letter to press to accompany the first seven episodes of HBO’s “The Leftovers,” the writer and showrunner urged critics not to consume it all in one go. “Bingeing is bad,” he said. “I am old school. And not just because I agree with Joss Whedon about everything. Never before in the history of the English language has ‘binge’ been associated with something healthy or productive. Just because there is an entire can of Pringles in front of you does not mean you should eat them all. »
