Not so mellow yellow

“Despicable Me” first got attention in 2010 for allowing Steve Carell to show off the darker side of his nice-jerk persona on “The Office.” But it didn’t take long for the Minions to take over. See how they won over audiences by re-watching the original before heading out to theaters to catch “Despicable Me 3.”

Sam I am

Sam Elliott is getting some of the best reviews of his nearly 50-year career, thanks to stoic performances in “I’ll See You in My Dreams” and the newly released “The Hero.” But even if he starts earning Oscars late in the game, he’ll always be best remembered as the Bouncer of All Bouncers in the 1989 cult favorite “Road House,” a ridiculous thriller that manages to be an A-plus hoot in spite of its B-movie shortcomings.

Hello, Dolley

It’s no surprise that “First Ladies Revealed” opens with anecdotes about Jackie Kennedy, but the new documentary series offers nothing that Natalie Portman hasn’t whispered to us already. Stick around, though, for eye-opening tales about Dolley Madison, a style innovator and riveting personality all her own. A big-screen biopic seems tailor-made for Melissa McCarthy.
