King Arthur’s daring nephew is learning that promises are meant to be kept, no matter the cost.
A meditative exploration of oaths and honor, the retelling of the 14th century chivalric romance “Sir Gawain and the Green Knight” is fresh and full of beheadings.

Album review: ‘Happier Than Ever’ reveals Billie Eilish’s future is far from a lost cause

This post was updated Aug. 1 at 5:54 p.m.
This time around, Billie Eilish is happier than ever.
The long-awaited sophomore record of the young artist comes after her Grammy-award-winning debut album “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” While its predecessor opted for a mostly darker electro-pop sound to complement its thematically heavy nature, “Happier Than Ever” strikes a balance in simultaneously softening and sharpening her edges.

Movie review: ‘Space Jam: A New Legacy’ evokes ghosts of basketball stars past in vibrant sequel

LeBron James once said his motivation was a ghost that played in Chicago.
The ghost he was referencing, of course, was Michael Jordan, who was widely regarded as the greatest basketball player of all time – until James crashed those debates in recent years – and the star of the 1996 blockbuster, “Space Jam.”
After five years and another NBA championship since the interview, the Los Angeles Lakers forward is following in Jordan’s off-the-court footsteps by reprising the feature role in the sequel, “Space Jam: A New Legacy.” 25 years after Jordan starred in the original, Bugs Bunny and the Looney Tunes crew once again take on the basketball court with a generational star to compete for their survival.
