Hulu series “Wu-Tang Clan: An American Saga” works hard to recreate the mythology of the Wu-Tang Clan, but fails to deliver a compelling biopic.  The series is the work of Wu-Tang Clan founding member Robert Diggs, better known as RZA, and “Watchmen” film screenwriter Alex Tse.  Stor...

I found “Joker” dark and disturbing but perfect. If your movie spurs police protection during its opening then you’ve already made an impact. Over this past weekend, “Joker” shattered October box office records with $93.5 million, which isn’t a surprise after all the hype that surrounded ...

I met one of my lifelong friends, Lauren, when we were each about 1 year old and I punched her, knocking her out in a “Mommy and Me” group.  Ever since then I have been best friends with her and her older sister, Rachel.  But our friendship extends beyond that.
