All About Nina Trailer

Mary Elizabeth Winstead has enjoyed quite the eclectic career in film, ranging from indie roles in the likes of Smashed and Swiss Army Man to more mainstream flicks like Live Free or Die Hard, 10 Cloverfield Lane and Scott Pilgrim vs the World. More recently she’s been comfortable on television with a role in FX’s series adaptation of Fargo, but this fall, she returns to theaters as a stand-up comedian.

All About Nina follows Mary Elizabeth Winstead as a blunt, struggling stand-up comic who covers all the usual rough and tumble about life and relationships. And we get to see all the highs and lows of this life from a troublesome and abusive boyfriend (Chace Crawford) to a new love interest (Common) that she seems likely to screw up somehow. Read More »

all about nina review

Movies about comedians are usually a gamble. Often they’re too self-indulgent, or mawkish, or overly mean-spirited. Rarely do they balance the high drama of comedians’ inherent insecurities and the, you know, comedy. But the few that do succeed because they strike a personal chord — one that mirrors the self-deprecating performance and painfully real revelations of a good stand-up set.

All About Nina is as personal as you can get. Written and directed by Eva VivesAll About Nina is a searing, semi-autobiographical portrait of a troubled young woman trying to make her big break in the comedy scene. Played with an intoxicating swagger by Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Nina is an abrasive stand-up comedian who never shies away from provoking people on and off-stage, but hides a dark past of her own.

gemini man cast

Gemini Man has found its female lead. Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who recently delivered fantastic back-to-back performances with 2016’s 10 Cloverfield Lane and last year’s season of Fargo, has joined Ang Lee‘s science-fiction thriller.

And on the production side, Gemini Man has landed John Wick: Chapter 2 stunt coordinator J.J. Perry. Even though the film will be heavily reliant on de-aging technology for star Will Smith to play the dual roles of an aging assassin and his younger clone, it seems like Lee will be combining cutting-edge tech with visceral action choreography.

Fargo Season 3 Finale

(Every week, we’re going to kick off a discussion about Fargo season 3 by answering one simple question: who f*cked up the most this week?)

The third season of Fargo opened with two characters who have polar opposite views of the world, and that’s exactly how it ended. The series began with a man who was not Yuri Gurka, but according to another character’s set of rules, he was. He was the killer because the government official wanted him to be. A simple coincidence, a name and address, disrupted or ruined the man’s life, which is nothing new on Noah Hawley‘s series.

Keith Gordon directed this week’s unpredictable finale, which packed a heavy punch. Below, read our review of the Fargo season 3 finale.

Fargo Aporia Review

(Every week, we’re going to kick off a discussion about Fargo season 3 by answering one simple question: who f*cked up the most this week?)

Defeat and disappointment are at the forefront of this week’s episode of Fargo. The most righteous and the most villainous characters on the FX series are thwarted in the second-to-last episode of the season. “Aporia,” as a title, is on the money. Keith Gordon, who also directed the season 3 finale, makes the stakes feel even more personal before the end.

Fargo episode 8

(Every week, we’re going to kick off a discussion about Fargo season 3 by answering one simple question: who f*cked up the most this week?)

Talk about an opening scene. This week’s episode of Fargo, “Who Rules the Land of Denial?” begins with one suspenseful attention grabber. A great opening scene is then followed by the addition of two character who have sense on Fargo: an unknown man and woman who knew just to keep on driving. No questions asked. Things still didn’t work out too well for them, but the world is again cruel and unfair on the FX series – just how V.M. Varga (David Thewlis) likes it.

Fargo The Law of Inevitability Review

(Every week, we’re going to kick off a discussion about Fargo season 3 by answering one simple question: who f*cked up the most this week?)

The blue streak continues on Fargo. Life has never been worse for Sy Feltz (Michael Stuhlbarg), Emmit Stussy (Ewan McGregor), and maybe Nikki Swango (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), who’s mysterious and world-weary enough to indicate season 3 of Fargo is far from her first bad time in Minnesota. Noah Hawley‘s FX series experiences the shockwave of last week’s shocking episode in “The Law of Inevitability,” in which Chief Moe Dammick (Shea Whigham) enlightens us on the mashed potato theory and how he proceeds when the sun is out.

Below, check out our latest Fargo review.
