The Dose: ‘Melodrama’ is the Lorde we’ve been waiting for

Singer-songwriter Lorde gained a new fan this past weekend. Her second album “Melodrama” was released on Friday, and I haven’t stopped listening to it since. It’s emotional, real and showcases her musical talent and versatility. Four years ago, Lorde stepped into the spotlight and intrigued us all with her dark, sultry voice and matching persona. Her breakout single “Royals” skyrocketed her to quick international fame at only 16 years old.

The Dose: ‘It Comes At Night’ is overrated, unsatisfying fare

Matt Harvey | Staff Writer Many critical reviews of “It Comes at Night” offer positive descriptions such as: it is “a close-quarters psychological thriller,” it is “meticulously crafted and highly intelligent” or in the case of The Wall Street Journal, it’s “taut, smart, intense and genuinely scary.” While these accounts do offer solid reflective analysis, they fail to connote what can more accurately be described as a lit and thrown

The Dose: ‘The Mummy’ should’ve stayed under wraps

Michael Vu | Staff Writer Universal Studios is diving a little too late into their attempt at creating a cinematic universe to match the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s impeccable track record. With this year’s reboot “The Mummy” comes the first entry into the their “Dark Universe.” The film’s story is a jumbled mess of narratives and tones through seconds on end, without a definite direction for the overarching plot, which is

The Dose: A look back at Brendan Fraser’s ‘The Mummy’

Michael Vu | Staff Writer You know the expression, “they just don’t make these like they used to?” 1999’s “The Mummy” is a prime example of a summer blockbuster that is just plain fun, with plenty of thrills and action to keep the audience at the edge of their seats and cheering out loud for the protagonists. In spirit for the upcoming reboot starring Tom Cruise coming out this week, it’s

The Dose: ‘Wonder Woman’ is DC’s best film in years

Michael Vu | Staff Writer Without exaggeration, this film has a lot of pressure on it. Although the previous three DC Extended Universe films have been financially successful, none have matched the critical success and longevity of most Marvel Studios endeavors. Well, rest easy, because this film is leagues better than any of those past films. It’s a strong debut for the Amazonian Princess and the most thoroughly enjoyable DC

The Dose: Guy Ritchie’s ‘King Arthur’ is a mixed bag

The latest directorial effort from Guy Ritchie (“Sherlock Holmes,” “Snatch,” “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.”) has been a very divisive experience between critics and moviegoers as of recently. As for me, I’m siding with the moviegoers this time, as this film may be fun, thrilling and exciting. However, there are some things that hold it back from it achieving greatness akin to the legend itself. So, what exactly is “King Arthur: Legend of

The Dose: New summer comedy is a disposable ‘Baywatch’

Summer is coming. Brace yourself moviegoers, as we’re yet again being shown another movie revival of a ’90s TV show with a pretty stacked cast and an R rating. But watch with caution, because this isn’t “21 Jump Street” in terms of quality and setting. The movie’s plot is as simple as it gets. Dwayne Johnson plays the leader of the lifeguard team in an undisclosed beach in California, known

The Dose: The Best and Worst of Roger Moore as James Bond

On Tuesday, actor Roger Moore died at the age of 89 from cancer. Although he was known for various TV shows, movies and humanitarian work, his most tremendous claim to fame was playing James Bond from 1973 to 1985 – the longest anyone has ever spent in the role. Last month I wrote that the “Fast and Furious” movies have “gradually become the Roger Moore-era Bond movies” of their day, which
