big lebowski spin-off

John Turturro’Big Lebowski spin-off has been rolling around since 2016, which seems like a million years ago at this point. Originally titled Going Places, the film followed Turturro Big Lebowski character Jesus Quintana in a whole new story. Word died down about the film, and it appeared Going Places would never actually go anywhere. Now, there’s an update. The film has a new title – The Jesus Rolls, and a new release date – early 2020.

The Report Sundance Review - Adam Driver

Scott Z. Burns has plenty of Hollywood experience as the writer of The Bourne Ultimatum, Side Effects, Contagion and The Informant. With his feature directorial debut The Report, one of our most anticipated titles of Sundance this year, the filmmaker shows that he’s picked up a step or two from directors Paul Greengrass and Steven Soderbergh. The result is a quiet but boiling political thriller that explores the infuriating and ethically questionable enhanced interrogation tactics employed by the CIA following the terrorist attacks of 9/11.

bad times at the el royale clip

Bad Times at the El Royale opened in theaters this fall to muted reception. The film had everything going for it: a star-studded cast including Jeff Bridges, Chris Hemsworth, Dakota Johnson, Jon Hamm, and Cynthia Erivo, a rising director following up his acclaimed debut feature, a seedy neo-noir thriller premise. But audiences didn’t check in for Drew Goddard‘s Bad Times at the El Royale.

Now, before we could finish unpacking why this movie fizzled, Bad Times at the El Royale is making its way to home video. With a digital release already out, 20th Century Fox advertises the upcoming Blu-ray release with an extended Bad Times at the El Royale clip.

Bad Times at the El Royale Review

Drew Goddard’s Bad Times At The El Royale is Tarantino Lite, but not as an insult. Crooked paths collide in the heart of Lake Tahoe’s hospitality crossroads. Drifters clutch onto secrets – in addition to the hotel’s own chequered history – and that’s expected, but buildup material is often more exciting than any elongated payoff. For a twisty border-straddling government conspiracy thriller, Goddard plays it a wee bit safe. Maybe another character stereotype or two could have livened the party up? As is, unsavory room renters are mere vessels for Vietnam war rhetoric and an inevitable gyration by virtue of Chris Hemsworth’s always-unbuttoned Abercrombie model look.

Top priority for a seedy hotel noir chiller, it appears? Read More »
