Here’s something I’m 100% positive no one saw coming: Neil Patrick Harris has joined The Matrix 4 cast alongside Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II. Harris’ part remains a closely guarded secret, so we have no idea who the heck he’s playing. But this is unexpected, and thus pretty interesting. More on Harris and The Matrix 4 below.

joker review

In less than a week, Joker has amassed a fortune despite a decidedly mixed critical reception. The film took the top prize at Venice, but a large number of critics (primarily American) have excoriated the film as being inappropriate if not downright dangerous, with many other commentators spilling buckets of ink on the topic before they even screened the film.

Given the film’s obvious debts to the works of Scorsese (The King of Comedy above all, with a dash of everything from Goodfellas to Bringing Out The Dead thrown in for good measure), it’s no surprise that the film is littered with needle drops that include show tunes, cabaret numbers, stadium hits, and excerpts from film scores. The evocative musical themes by composer Hildur Guðnadóttir are particularly effective in setting the mood, but there are dozens of other musical pieces used to tell the tale of Arthur Fleck.

Here are the tracks from Joker’s soundtrack, as well as some background on how these songs gained fame, how they work in the film and some surprising connections outside the narrative that shape how we hear these pieces in the context of Todd Phillips’ film.

The Addams Family 2

Everyone knows the Addams Family is creepy and kooky, mysterious and spooky, altogether ooky, but now we can add “enduring” to the eerie family’s list of descriptors. The characters originated in a comic strip in the 1930s before making the jump to live-action in a popular 1960s sitcom and hopping into two live-action feature films in the ’90s, but the brand new animated film has already proven popular enough to warrant a theatrical sequel.

MGM and United Artists Releasing are officially going full steam ahead with The Addams Family 2, which is scheduled to ooze into theaters in October 2021. Read More »
