Ready for Bob Odenkirk to go full John Wick? I sure as hell am. Odenkirk, who has revealed himself to be a damn great actor through his work on Better Call Saul and in films like Steven Spielberg’s The Post, is now making the transition to action star in Nobody, a film written by John Wick scribe Derek Kolstad and produced by David Leitch, director of Atomic Blonde (and un-credited co-director of the first John Wick).

The tragedy of Better Call Saul is that we know it is a tragedy. Call it fate, or destiny, but we know that sooner or later (and in this case, sooner), Jimmy McGill will go all the way to the dark side and become Saul Goodman. The same Saul Goodman we met in Breaking Bad – a sleazy, shady, unlikable lawyer willing to bend or break the law if need be, consequences be damned.
Over the course of four seasons, Better Call Saul has made this inevitability all the more heartbreaking by showing us that deep down, Jimmy McGill isn’t such a bad guy. In fact, he could’ve been a really good guy – if only he hadn’t made some bad choices. Now, as Better Call Saul enters its penultimate season, Jimmy is in full-blown Saul mode. Which means it’s only a matter of time before it all comes crashing down.

There’s a stigma among the general public that animation is meant for family friendly content. But animation isn’t a genre, it’s a medium, and it’s a tool that can be used to tell some very mature, probing, and powerful stories. Amazon will soon set out to prove that with their latest series.
Undone is a psychological drama following Rosa Salazar (Alita: Battle Angel) as a young, depressed woman (Rosa Salazar of Alita: Battle Angel) whose life is irreversibly and wildly changed after a car accident gives her a newfound ability to shift through time. If that sounds trippy, just wait until you watch the Undone featurette that shows off the impressive rotoscope animation process that brings the show to life. Read More »

Animation is a medium, not a genre. But because most animated projects are geared towards kids and their parents, it can be hard for everyday people to make a proper distinction. But when it comes to Amazon’s new trippy drama Undone, it’s clear that animation isn’t just for kids.
Undone follows a young, depressed woman (Rosa Salazar of Alita: Battle Angel) whose life is irreversibly and wildly changed after a car accident gives her a newfound ability to shift through time. But since this is a scary prospect and she’s not really sure what’s going on, the ghost of her dead father (Bob Odenirk) is here to help her, and that includes showing her how he actually died. If that sounds weird to you, just wait until you see the Undone trailer. Read More »
