'll try to refrain from emphasizing my annoyance that all the witches are finally showing their powers and being badass -- when we only have one episode of "American Horror Story: Coven" left.

I'll admit that I was surprised when Jacob Latimore burst into song early into Kasi Lemmons' Black Nativity. I went into the screening having only the vaguest knowledge of the cast and the director, and no one had mentioned that it was a musical.

This is a show that is often as problematic as it is delightfully bizarre, and navigating the thin line between being critical of its faults and being entertained by its eccentricities is perhaps the most difficult part about being a fan.

Scott Mendelson

Olympus Has Fallen offers a level of jingoistic fear-mongering the likes of which are more commonly associated with a 1980s Chuck Norris vehicle. It isn't terribly smart and it peaks in the first act, but damned if I didn't enjoy the picture nonetheless.
