The Looming tower review

Before The Looming Tower even begins, you know where it’s going to end. Yet that doesn’t make the series any less engrossing, or addictive.

Based on Lawrence Wright’s Pulitzer-winning book, The Looming Tower is the story of how we ended up here – seemingly trapped in wars with no end in sight. It is the story of the individuals who tried, and failed, to prevent the events that would ultimately lead to 9/11. And it unfolds with all the heart-pounding intensity of a potboiler thriller. The end result is something that may ultimately prove to be the first truly great new TV series of 2018.

the looming tower trailer

Get ready for your next must-see series: Hulu just released a new trailer for their tense, star-studded new show The Looming Tower. Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning non-fiction book by Lawrence Wright, the series deals with how the FBI and CIA dealt with (and in some cases, failed to deal with) the rising threat of Osama Bin Laden and Al-Qaeda in the 1990s.

2017 character actors

While 2017 has, overall, been a tire fire of a year, it has also been a largely rewarding year for cinema. (It should go without saying, but every year is rewarding for cinema.) Though there have been thematic throughlines in unexpectedly similar films, and unavoidable, sometimes unintentional parallels to real-world events, 2017 in film has been the year of the ubiquitous character actor.

In a strange coincidence (or just a sign of taste from various filmmakers), a handful of character actors have not only appeared in a number of the year’s most notable films, but they’ve each appeared in movies that may well end up with Oscar nominations aplenty next month. Let’s look at four character actors who seemingly showed up in every movie released in 2017: Caleb Landry Jones, Michael Stuhlbarg, Tracy Letts, and Bradley Whitford.

The Post review

Steven Spielberg‘s latest film, The Post, once again proves that the acclaimed filmmaker hasn’t lost his touch. In less than a year, Spielberg has put together an expertly crafted film. Even more than that: he’s made what might just be the most important film of 2017. In tackling an historical story focused on the importance of a free press, Spielberg is holding a mirror up to today, reminding us what’s past is prologue.

The Shape of Water Photos

Guillermo del Toro has created some terrifying human beings in his movies. Michael Shannon plays his next antagonist and I can imagine del Toro turning him into one truly terrifying presence in his fairy tale. The trailer already has me fearing what he might do to Michael Stuhlbarg, who after his fantastic performance in Fargo, I expect to be the recipient of more pain and suffering. Shannon’s character, Strickland (a strong villain name if there ever was one), is probably more interested in harming the fish-man (Doug Jones) he has trapped.

Below, check out Strickland, the fish-man, and more in some new The Shape of Waters photos.
