Logan Lucky [2017] ★★½

Critics have been praising director Steven Soderbergh’s comeback movie (he retired 4 years ago after “Side Effects”), and there’s no denying that he’s still got it, even though I didn’t fully embrace the overall result. On the plus side, “Logan Lucky” has a well-cast ensemble and gives us Daniel […]

The 90’s show starring David Hasselhoff and Pamela Anderson (who both have a […]
