The Wallflowers' Jakob Dylan explores the origins of the "Laurel Canyon" sound that shaped a generation and continues to influence modern musicians.
The gang is back for another adventure, but is "Toy Story 4" worthy of its predecessors, or should Pixar put a fork in it?
This powerful film about identity, friendship and finding one's place in the world features one of the best supporting performances of the year thus far...and is worth checking out, despite its painfully slow start and meandering style.
Adam Sandler's recent Netflix special, "100% Fresh," is maybe the funniest thing you'll see all year. But his rotten streak gets reset with this flat, lifeless dud.
