Kevin: “The Last Jedi” this week officially became the highest grossing movie of 2017, and while such a milestone would normally be an indication that said film is a four-quadrant crowd-pleaser, the newest “Star Wars” is actually one of the most polarizing box office champs of all time.

TGD Friday Flashback: The Rock’s “Baywatch” Can’t Be More Entertaining Than Hasselhoff’s Bizarro “Baywatch Nights”

(Originally posted May 26, 2017) Kevin: Back in January we expressed our skepticism that the big-screen remakes of “CHiPs” and “Baywatch” could possibly match their television counterparts in both the action and comedy (at least of the unintentional variety) departments.
