The Hollars

In 2009, actor John Krasinski made his directorial debut with an adaptation of David Foster Wallace‘s Brief Interviews with Hideous Men. The film, which does feature some good performances, wasn’t received particularly well. Seven years after its premiere, Krasinski returned to the Sundance Film Festival with his second feature as a director, The Hollars, which stars himself, Anna KendrickMargo MartindaleSharlto CopleyCharlie DayRichard Jenkins, Mary Elizabeth Winstead.

Spoilers for Game of Thrones season 6 immediately follow.

Game of Thrones season finales tend to be packed to the brim with important reveals and exciting business, but “The Winds of Winter” was more stuffed with important details than just about any other episode in the entire series thus far. Among the many, many enormous things that happened, we learned the truth about Jon Snow’s parentage. And while this has been a long-discussed theory amongst book readers for many years, it seems like series author George R.R. Martin quietly hinted at it over a decade ago. You can never accuse this guy of not playing the long game.

tarantino's favorite character

Last year, I embarked on the ridiculous task of ranking every single Quentin Tarantino character and Christoph Waltz‘s Hans Landa, the scheming Nazi villain of Inglourious Basterds, landed in the number two spot. It turns out that Tarantino thinks more highly of this character than I do, since he has revealed that Landa is his personal favorite of every character he has created.

Pete's Dragon image

Disney’s last remake, The Jungle Book, made close to a billion dollars. Audiences keep turning out to see their live-action reimaginings, and maybe partly because they’re improving in quality. Following up some of the studio’s previous efforts, like Alice in Wonderland and Maleficent, both Cinderella and The Jungle Book surpassed some’s expectations. Not everybody pegged them to be, creatively and financially, as successful as they are. Going into David Lowery‘s (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints) loose remake of Pete’s Dragon, perhaps some of those skeptics will have higher expectations for this tale of friendship.

Other People

In terms of an acting career, Jesse Plemons is without a doubt one of the most successful Friday Night Lights alums of all time. He’s had major roles in Breaking Bad and Fargo, and popped up in films by the likes of Paul Thomas Anderson and Steven Spielberg. But he’s never really gotten to be a leading man until now.

Other People was one of the first films to play at the Sundance Film Festival this year, and, by our estimation, one of the best. The feature directorial debut of veteran Saturday Night Live scribe Chris Kelly, it stars Plemons as a gay comedy writer who returns home from New York to Sacramento to care for his dying mother (played by Molly Shannon in an exceptional performance). It’s funny and sad in equal measure, and above all feels authentic — no wonder considering Kelly based the film on his own experiences. Watch the Other People trailer below.  Read More »

The Neon Demon ending questions

Nicolas Winding Refn‘s The Neon Demon is a beautifully shot yet polarizing film. It’s either shallow, pretentious, sensationalistic and self-indulgent or a bold haunting hypnotic work of suspense. I’m still not sure if I liked it or not, but It has certainly remained with me since my viewing of the film over the weekend. My reaction is typical — the movie has gotten a very mixed reaction from critics and film geeks.

My viewing has prompted a deep dive into interviews and analysis of the film, and I thought I’d share some of the insights into The Neon Demon ending, the symbology and metaphors both obvious and more hidden. I’ll also attempt to answer some of your The Neon Demon questions.
