She likes hip-hop music and joking with her friends in the car.

But then things take a turn when she witnesses her childhood best friend killed by a police officer. The shooting sets off a domino effect that forces Starr to grapple with her place between her two different worlds, and wrestle with the injustice of the world.

avengers infinity war spoiler review

(In our Spoiler Reviews, we take a deep dive into a new release and get to the heart of what makes it tick…and every story point is up for discussion. In this entry: Avengers: Infinity War.)

Everything dies, baby that’s a fact
But maybe everything that dies someday comes back.

– Bruce Springsteen, “Atlantic City”

Does Avengers: Infinity War live up to the hype? That depends. If you wanted nothing more than to see the majority of the Marvel Cinematic Universe characters up on the screen together, then yes, Infinity War delivers. If you were hoping for something deeper, you might find yourself wanting more. Ultimately, Infinity War is a magic trick of a movie, full of deception and misdirection. It entertains, sure – but when the smoke clears, we can’t help but see the obvious way the trick was designed.

‘Detroit’ Re-Release Trailer Makes an Oscar Push

Detroit re-release trailer

Detroit was Kathryn Bigelow‘s first feature film since 2012’s acclaimed Zero Dark Thirty, but the harrowing historical drama didn’t seem to have nearly as big an impact as Annapurna Pictures had hoped. The film garnered middling box office and mixed reviews and seemed to have faded from everyone’s memory after it left theaters. Now, sensing that this year’s Oscar race is slightly underwhelming, Annapurna is giving Bigelow’s film another chance with a re-release, and a new Detroit trailer has arrived to signal the new awards season push.
