Movie Review: Desperados
Desperados.
“Romcom,” that headline-friendly mashing of genre, is more a continuum than a designation. On one end sit entertainments akin to old-time romance, unlikely to produce much laughter; these are primarily crafted to make audiences feel for the plight of the lovelorn lead.
Review: Hamilton
Werk.
I’m not sure anyone needs a fresh critical take on “Hamilton.” If this is reaching you on, say, one of the rocky moons of Jupiter, just take the show’s quality as a given. “Hamilton” is very good. (Actually, the rocky moons of Jupiter probably have the soundtrack by now.)
