Bad Moms (2016)

“Bad Moms” is a mixed bag. On the one hand it’s great to see a nasty, mean-spirited comedy digs its claws into an insidious form of toxic parenthood that has emerged over the years. 132 more words

Strange Weather (2016)

On paper, “Strange Weather” sounds like a winner: A mid-level indie starring the tremendous Holly Hunter (with support from Kim Coates and the late Glenne Headley), focusing on a story of motherly grief and the quest for closure and redemption. 69 more words

Chris Gethard: Career Suicide (2017)

Going into this comedy special, I wish I’d known it had more in common with a one-man show than a comedy routine.

The Mick (Season 2) (2017)

The second season of the hilarious and talented Kaitlin Olson’s sitcom is even stronger than its winning first season. Some of its rough edges have been smoothed out and the supporting characters are more likable this time around without jeopardizing the show’s anything-goes mood. 91 more words

Fitz and the Tantrums - Fitz and the Tantrums (2016)

A significant let down following their 2013 pop pastiche “More Than Just a Dream,” the duo’s latest suffers from a lack of urgency and depth. Gone is the pseudo-soul and funk that defined their previous albums, replaced instead with an energetic, poppy and ultimately anonymous blend of radio-friendly pop. 81 more words

Empire of the Sun - Two Vines (2016)

The third album by the Australian synth-pop duo is a  bit of a disappointment. That isn’t to suggest that it’s subpar, but mostly it’s a let down because it’s far too sophisticated for its genre. 90 more words

Meds vs Head

So sleepy and dazed

I didn’t see the signs start

Now I’m in the hole
