It’s that time of year, and Hollywood is betting people can’t wait to go back to the movies.
For me, the word “anxious” is about right because I always try to map my post-hot-girl summer responsibly.
But some movies just want to experience it on the big screen, so let’s start this week watching with one of them.
‘F9: The Fast Saga’
Ahh, the cars, the action, the beautiful people.
That’s basically the formula for every “Fast & Furious” movie – and the last one seems to follow that to the max.
“The girls (in the movie) are front and center, we’ve got a lot of action,” Brewster said. “But also the movie has so much heart that each character has their own arc and it also answers a lot of questions for fans covering the last nine movies.”
“There will always be so much love for him,” she said. “I feel like we still have these nods to Paul, those nods to Brian. Brian will always be, Paul will always be part of our universe.”
“F9” hits theaters Friday.
‘Bosch’ season 7
“Everyone matters or no one matters.”
This now famous line from Los Angeles Police Detective Hieronymus “Harry” Bosch – the main character in the Michael Connelly series of novels and the Amazon Prime series based on the books – is good for the times we live in. . .
The mantra is also a good point to focus on as the series wraps up with its seventh and final season.
This time around Bosch, played by Titus Welliver, investigates an arson attack.
If you’ve watched the show, you know that such murders mean bad news for the bad guys if Bosch is on the case.
Season Seven begins airing on Amazon Prime this Friday.
Bring a knife and fork for this documentary.
Puck dreamed big and ended up “inventing radically new American cuisine and creating the very concept of ‘celebrity chef’.”
The film is a delicious tale for foodies or anyone who enjoys an American dream story.
“Wolfgang” begins airing Friday on Disney +.
Two things to listen to
HER is about to join the ranks of EGOT winners.
In the meantime, the multi-talented singer, songwriter and musician blesses us with a new album titled “Deep in my mind.” It’s actually his first full-length album, and he has a few of his famous friends as collaborators, including Chris Brown, DJ Khaled, Lil Baby and Bryson Tiller.
“Back of My Mind” has been released and streaming.
Speaking of a hard-hitting alignment, Doja cat has some big stars orbiting his latest album, “Planet Elle.”
Ariana Grande, The Weeknd and SZA are just a few of the other artists joining her on her third studio album.
She and Grande last collaborated on the single “Motive” from the latter’s sixth studio album, “Positions”.
“Planet Her” falls on Friday.
One thing to say
Mary J. Blige took her pain and turned it to platinum.
Sales of platinum records, that is to say. The proclaimed queen of Hip-Hop Soul is the subject of a new documentary, released on Amazon Prime Friday.
“Mary J. Blige’s My Life” offers an in-depth look at the singer’s life and her hit 1994 album “My Life”.
Doc director Vanessa Roth recently spoke to me about what made Blige such a great subject.
“She gave us the chance to tell the story of this iconic figure who has influenced so many people,” said Roth. “And at the same time being able to use the music, the power, the excitement and all of that combined with this woman telling such a true and honest story about what it’s like to grow up without feeling self-love and struggling. with that and then use that music to heal and heal other people. “
For you Mary J. Blige fans, you know this is “Real Love” – and it’s the one you don’t want to miss.
Something to sip
You have to be very careful if you are going to make a film about racism right now.
This is what the people behind the movie “Karen” are learning.
But it is real. In our currently divided nation, which is so racially charged, there is really nothing funny about this.
