• ‘Borg/McEnroe' Film Review: Shia LaBeouf Tennis Movie Mixes Backhands With Psychoanalysis

    1 month ago - By The Wrap

    If nothing else, “Borg/McEnroe” makes its ambitions clear from the start. The film from director Janus Metz opens with a title-card quote from Andre Agassi (who otherwise has nothing to do with this particular tennis story) that concludes, “Every match is a life in miniature.”
    Make that two lives in miniature, because “Borg/McEnroe” sets out to encapsulate the troubled journeys of tennis stars Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe within one epic match. That came in the 1980 Wimbledon final, when the emotionless Swede was going for a record fifth consecutive Wimbledon title and the brash American...

  • ‘Truth or Dare' Film Review: Blumhouse College Horror Doesn't Make the Grade

    1 month ago - By The Wrap

    The title of this horror movie on-screen is officially “Blumhouse's Truth or Dare,” maybe to differentiate it from, say, “Madonna: Truth or Dare” or some other film based around this game, which may still be popular among more repressed high school and college students. Anyone who played truth or dare as a teenager will know that it usually ends badly, but not quite as badly or ludicrously as it does here.
    The concept in this horror movie “Truth or Dare” is that the game itself is somehow possessed by a demon, and this means that, whenever a participant is possessed by said demon, they are...
