shane carruth retiring

Shane Carruth isn’t what you’d call a prolific filmmaker, but the two films he’s delivered – Primer and Upstream Color – are held in high regard. Fans have been hoping for a new Carruth-directed film for almost seven years now, and the good news is that their wish might soon be granted. The bad news is that Carruth might be retiring once this next film is made.

babu frik scene

While Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker has been divisive, the one thing about the movie that everyone can agree on is that Babu Frik rules. The tiny alien droidsmith is pretty darn adorable, and even though he only pops up in two scenes he still leaves his mark. Now that Rise of Skywalker has been out for a few weeks, Disney has released an official clip featuring Babu Frik in all his frikin’ glory. It also features Rey, Finn, Poe, C-3PO and Zorii Bliss, but let’s be honest: we’re here for that Frik action.

bad boys for life review

Three things are essential to the Bad Boys franchise – or at least, they used to be. One is an often alarming cruelty – a disregard for anyone, and anything, all in the name of a near-sociopathic attempt at coolness. The second is what is commonly referred to as Bayhem – the wild, swirling, often incoherent action beats created by director Michael Bay. The third, and perhaps most essential, is the banter – and bickering – between leads Will Smith and Martin Lawrence.

What makes Bad Boys for Life, the third and presumably final chapter in this series, so special is the jettisoning of the first two elements while embracing the third. Bay is no longer in the director’s chair, and the overall nastiness – which was ramped up to the nth degree in Bad Boys II – is nowhere to be found. But that interplay between Smith and Lawrence is ever-present, and endlessly entertaining.

Of course, this is all subjective. What sounds potentially good on paper could’ve been a misfire once filmed. Here’s what you need to know.
