While reviews for the NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton have been fairly positive, one prevailing critique is that the narrative conveniently leaves out Dr. Dre’s abusive past.

The hardest-to-reinvent Romantic Comedy—two words that instantly yield lowered expectations—seems at once in need of…

I DVR’d Montage of Heck and watched it a day after it premiered on HBO. I waited partly out of dread.
