Rating: R Stars: Dave Bautista, Kumail Nanjiani, Iko Uwais, Natalie Morales, Betty Gilpin Writer: Tripper Clancy Director: Michael Dowse Distributor: 20th Century Fox Release Date: July 12, 2019 STUBER pairs Dave Bautista and Kumail Nanjiani in a buddy action comedy. Given the track record of both performers, especially Nanjiani, STUBER feels like it ought to be funnier. It’s agreeable in a LETHAL WEAPON knockoff way, and its leads are both deeply likeable. It’s just that few of the gags land in the way that seems intended. Bautista plays LAPD detective Vic, ferociously determined to avenge the death of his partner […]Read On »

Fox Network’s LETHAL WEAPON, now on Tuesday nights in its third season, is based on the hit film franchise (four films made between 1987 and 1998) about two LAPD detectives, staid family man Roger Murtaugh and his suicidal daredevil partner, Martin Riggs.

This season, Damon Wayans’s Murtaugh has a new partner, former CIA agent Wesley Cole, played by Seann William Scott. What hasn’t changed for Murtaugh is his loyal family, […]Read On »

Among the composers who excelled in the legions of distinctly 80s and 90s action films that had tough guy heroes mowing down hordes of American drug dealers and / or Eurotrash villains, Michael Kamen nailed the sound of two cop franchises that were perhaps so popular because their body count heroes weren’t iron jawed hulks. One featured an NYC detective who always happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, while the other teamed a seemingly crazy lone wolf LA officer with a partner who was more concerned with his home life. So while Kamen’s brassily orchestral, […]Read On »
