‘Sharp Objects’ REALLY Lives Up to Its Name in Episode II

I’ll give full credit to this show for so thoroughly exploring its tortured protagonist cliché and literally living up to its title so quickly. I don’t think I’ve repulsed physically from any show as much this year as much as I did at the scene where Camille Preaker shoves a sewing needle underneath her fingernail,…

‘Sharp Objects’ Has Arrived for Your Summer TV Viewing Pleasure

Here’s a formula for a TV hit: Set in the hot summer schedule, a murder-mystery miniseries rife with water cooler discussion. Split the budget between acting, a cinematic auteur director, ace cinematography, a moody minor string orchestral score and place the rest into licensed music budget into licensing that will have people Shazaming afterwards.

Does the 1982 Eddie Murphy classic “48 Hrs.” hold up today?

One of the only podcasts I listen to is The Rewatchables. Many film podcasts usually contain hosts with an infuriating lack of film knowledge and haven’t done their research, but each episode of The Rewatchables that I’ve listened to checks its references. In discussing Walter Hill’s 1982-directed, Joel Silver-produced, Eddie Murphy starring debut 48 hrs., host Bill Simmons in…
