Movie review: 'Beach Rats' is riveting, deeply compelling

Hazy summer nights lit with neon lights. Salty mist, smoky cigarettes. Peeking midriffs, lanky arms and torsos dripping with seawater; undulating in a cheap motel. This is the furtive, nocturnal, sensory world of Frankie (Harris Dickinson), effortlessly spun like sugar by writer-director Eliza Hittman in her sophomore feature, "Beach Rats." Frankie and his friends, a group of young Coney Island hoodlums without much to do, spend their evenings trolling the boardwalk for babes and bud.

Why action movie franchises continue despite poor box office performances

When "Transformers: The Last Knight" arrived in theaters this past June, virtually everyone hated it. The fifth installment in Michael Bay's robot-vehicle franchise was the worst-reviewed yet, earning a dismal 14 percent at RottenTomatoes and dubbed "2017's Most Toxic Movie" by Rolling Stone. Audiences, too, shunned the film. With a $44 million opening weekend, less than half that of the previous film, "The Last Knight" is shaping up as the worst performer in the series by far.
