legion season 1 recap

How do you recap a TV show as surreal and strange as Legion? Even FX’s Legion season 1 recap questions its own reality. And subsequently fails to answer any of those questions.

The mind-bending X-Men series returns for its second season in a month, but even fans who have been watching it since the beginning would have trouble describing what it’s about. The premise is simple enough, to be sure: David Haller (Dan Stevens), a mutant who believed he had schizophrenia, is spirited off to a facility for people like him. But from there, that’s where things get weird.

An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn review

The Sundance Film Festival is often populated with unconventional love stories, but An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn may take the proverbial cake this year. Legion co-stars Aubrey Plaza and Jemaine Clement make an unlikely pair in this deeply odd movie, a screwball odyssey into the absurd in which barely a single scene plays out in a conventional manner. There’s a touching love story to be found here, but the off-the-wall humor encasing it is sure to throw off those who aren’t willing to give themselves over to the film’s outlandish world. Buckle up, because things are about to get freaky. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Ingrid Goest West

There’s an excellent dark comedy playing in theaters at the moment, Ingrid Goes West. At this year’s Sundance Film Festival, editor-in-chief Peter Sciretta wrote director Matt Spicer‘s film “is not just your average comedy film, but a smart commentary on our social media obsessed world.” It’s a story about obsession, Instagram, bad vibes, and the wrong kind of Squad Goals. The movie already has one fantastic poster, but now it’s been given the Mondo treatment.

Not only did Mondo print a striking new poster, but they’re also selling a whole batch of goodies related to the film. We may not ever be able to buy Ingrid Thorburn (Aubrey Plaza) and Dan Pinto (O’Shea Jackson) action figures, but at least we can purchase some great Mondo merchandise that’ll delight any fan of the movie.

Below, check out the Ingrid Goes West Mondo poster, vinyl cover, and more.

Ingrid Goes West

Characters talking on the phone or looking at a phone can be pretty boring in a movie. That’s not the case with Matt Spicer’s Ingrid Goes West, in which his deeply lonely protagonist, Ingrid Thorburn (Aubrey Plaza), spends a lot of her time and life on her iPhone. It’s a great character who elicits empathy, laughs, shock, and some cringes.

Ingrid grows obsessed with an Insta-celeb, Taylor (Elizabeth Olsen), who she goes a long way to befriend. Some of the character’s Instagram hashtag-heavy posts in the movie were shared during production on the social media app.

matt spicer interview

With Ingrid Thorburn (Aubrey Plaza) leading the way in Ingrid Goes West, it’s often tough to predict which direction Matt Spicer‘s dark comedy will go in next. Ingrid goes to great lengths to turn Taylor Sloane (Elizabeth Olsen) into her best friend so the whole world can see her Instagram. Aubrey’s character searches for a friend in a sad, laugh-filled descent in the sunny, “good vibes only” part of California.

Ingrid Goes West calls to mind movies like The Cable GuyTaxi Driver, and The Talented Mr. Ripley. There’s a loneliness to the lead characters of those movies that can also be found in Ingrid. Her motive is wanting friendship. Yeah, she’s deceptive in the course of her journey, but so are a lot of the characters in Spicer’s feature directorial debut, which he co-wrote with David Branson Smith.

Below, check out our Matt Spicer interview, where we chat all about the new movie, which is in theaters today.

Ingrid Goes West Red Band Trailer

If you’re looking for some motivation to stop scrolling through Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and all that nonsense, the indie dark comedy Ingrid Goes West might help cure you of your incessant desire to stay connected to everyone through your phone.

The movie, which premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, follows Parks and Recreation star Aubrey Plaza as the titular social media obsessed stalker who latches on to someone she meets online, adapts her personality to become best friends with them, and inevitably ruins the relationship when she becomes way too clingy. A new red band trailer just debuted which shows how crazy Ingrid can get as she tries to impress a social media celebrity played by Elizabeth Olsen.

Ingrid Goes West trailer

Here’s the second trailer for Ingrid Goes West, a satire of Instagram culture and obsession that marks the directorial debut of filmmaker Matt Spicer. Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation) plays Ingrid, a pathetic stalker who develops an obsession of an Insta-celeb named Taylor (Elizabeth Olsen). When Ingrid heads across the country to ingratiate herself into Taylor’s life, things seem to go well before they quickly go off the rails.
