mamma mia here we go again reviews

No one was clamoring for a sequel to 2008’s Mamma Mia, the smash-hit jukebox musical based on the popular Broadway play. It was campy, kitschy, and just the right thing to put on in the background as you drank rosé and and reminisced of the glory days of ABBA. And yet, 10 years later, here comes a sequel as dazzling and dedicated to joy as the first one was. And critics say that it could melt our cold, cynical hearts.

The Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again reviews are here and, despite a healthy heaping of cynicism from the critics going into the films, they found themselves tapping their feet to the music. It’s a silly, solid sequel that just may be what we need in these trying times.

See what critics are saying in their Mamma Mia Here We Go Again reviews below.

Edgar Wright Sparks Documentary

Last year Edgar Wright got us tapping our toes and gripping our seats in the fast-paced, music-infused heist thriller Baby Driver. We’re not sure exactly what the filmmaker’s next project will be, but we now have word on something the Shaun of the Dead director is working on right now, and it’s a kind of project we haven’t seen him tackle before.

Edgar Wright has confirmed that he’s currently working on a documentary about the pop rock band Sparks, a cult favorite among music fans. However, it sounds like it’s still early days on the project, and it’s still taking shape. Find out more about the Edgar Wright Sparks documentary below. Read More »

bohemian rhapsody director

When the Bohemian Rhapsody trailer dropped, the internet couldn’t help but notice that the trailer was missing one important thing: the director’s name. Well, maybe two things. But regardless, it was a little odd to leave out the name of the director, especially when the trailer for the Queen/Freddie Mercury biopic proudly boasted that the film came “from 20th Century Fox and Regency Enterprises.”

Could it be that there was some contention as to whose name should go on the billing after original director Bryan Singer left partway through production and was replaced by Dexter Fletcher? Perhaps at the time — but now those issues are resolved. Singer will reportedly retain his title as the director of Bohemian Rhapsody.
