Suburbicon Review

It’s not often that one film attempts so many different things and manages to make none of them work, but gosh darn it, Suburbicon somehow makes such blundering seem easy. Director George Clooney packs a whole lot of ideas into his tale of the underbelly of 1950s suburbia, but they’re really bad, lazy ideas, which is a shame because Suburbicon has quite the pedigree.

The biggest problem with Suburbicon is that it’s really two different movies cobbled together. One movie is a dark, farcical Coen Brothers-style crime movie. Which makes sense, since the Coens have a writing credit on the film. But then there’s the other movie, one that deals with racism and white supremacy. This is an element of the film that absolutely none of the advertising even hints at, which is kind of strange.

You really shouldn’t hold a movie’s advertising against it, but the trailers for Suburbicon make it look like a wacky dark comedy about a family man in the 50s fighting back against his tormentors. That’s not even close to what this movie is about, and the fact that the trailers tried to sell it as that hints at a movie that folks don’t know how to sell.

Suburbicon Trailer - Matt Damon

This fall brings a reteaming of filmmaking duo Joel & Ethan Coen and superstar George Clooney, but not in the capacity that we’re used to see them collaborate. Instead, Suburbicon sees the Coen brothers only writing the script, and George Clooney is directing without starring in the movie himself, which is something he’s never done before. Now a new Suburbicon trailer has arrived online featuring some praise following the film’s debut at the Venice Film Festival this past week. Read More »

No one does black comedy better than the Coen brothers, and with their frequent leading man George Clooney behind the camera, it seems like Suburbicon will bring a whole new twist onto a classic Coen tale.

A new international trailer for the Coen brothers-penned, Clooney-directed film about Suburbia Gone Wrong has arrived and it features star Matt Damon getting his hands — and face — bloodier than ever.

Carrie Fisher The Last Jedi

In the Star Wars: The Last Jedi behind-the-scenes sizzle reel that debuted at this year’s D23 Expo, Carrie Fisher said the upcoming sequel is powerful because “it’s about family.” Sadly, her words have taken on a whole new meaning in the wake of her sudden death at the end of last year: it will now be about watching the final time this actress – who, for many fans, has felt like a part of their pop culture family for 30 years – steps into the role of Princess-turned-General Leia, one of the most iconic sci-fi heroes ever conceived.

In Entertainment Weekly’s latest barrage of Star Wars news, there’s a story about the bond Leia shares with Oscar Isaac‘s Resistance pilot Poe Dameron, her impact on his growth as a leader, and the vulnerable place we find the Resistance at the start of the new film.

Suburbicon Trailer - Matt Damon

Directing duo Joel & Ethan Coen love bringing a little dark comedy to the big screen, and that’s exactly what they’re going to get with Suburbicon.

The directors behind No Country for Old Men and The Big Lebowski aren’t behind the camera this time, but instead, they’ve let their former leading man George Clooney take over the directing duties for a script they wrote. The result appears to be a twisted comedy of murder in the suburbs with a promising blend of quirky laughter and brutal violence.

Star Wars The Last Jedi

Over the weekend, Disney and Lucasfilm unveiled one of those beautiful behind the scenes sizzle reels for Star Wars: The Last Jedi at the D23 Expo. It wasn’t quite as exciting as a brand new trailer would have been, but that doesn’t mean the video wasn’t full of a bunch of new details for fans to examine frame by frame.

Below, we take a look at dozens of shots from The Last Jedi sizzle reel to see what we can figure out about the second part of the new Star Wars trilogy. While there are plenty of things we don’t entirely understand just yet, there is plenty of new footage here that does help us figure out how some parts of the story will unfold. So check out our The Last Jedi sizzle reel breakdown, and see what we figured out. Read More »

Star Wars The Last Jedi Vanity Fair Cover

Since the official 40th anniversary of the original Star Wars is coming this week on May 25, it looks like we’re going to get some special sneak peeks at this year’s continuance of the sci-fi saga, Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

The first teaser trailer arrived during Star Wars Celebration in Orlando last month, but now fans are hungry for even more. They’ll get it this week, as Vanity Fair has announced they’ll have a batch of photos from the set of the movie arriving on Wednesday, May 24, just as they did for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

To tease the arrival of these photos, Vanity Fair has released four different Star Wars: The Last Jedi covers that provide new looks at Rey (Daisy Ridley), Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), General Leia (Carrie Fisher), Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), Finn (John Boyega), General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson), Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) and new character Rose Tico (Kelly Marie Tran).

Poe Dameron The Last Jedi

Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) is a straightforward, no fuss hero. In Star Wars: The Force Awakens, he’s all about doing the right thing. There isn’t anything boring about that, either. Every once in a while, it’s refreshing to see a character as heroic as Poe, someone who’s not going to question or doubt himself.

Maybe we’ll see him wrestle with more conflicts in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, though, which revealed its first teaser last week. According to Isaac, we will learn more about the best damn pilot in the galaxy in Rian Johnson‘s (Looper) sequel.
