It’s both unavoidable and a bit unfair to compare writer-director Sebastian Silva’s squirm-inducing new indie Tyrel to last year’s Get Out. In most ways, they couldn’t be more different. But in at least one major one, they’re companion pieces about race, otherness, and slights both actual and perceived. Jason Mitchell, who broke out in 2015’s Straight…
Warning: The following contains spoilers from the first two episodes of The Blacklist season 6. Read at your own risk! Raymond Reddington (James Spader) has finally been captured — but he’s not going to go down without a fight. At the end of the two-part season 6 premiere of NBC’s The Blacklist, Red tells Liz (Megan Boone)…
Before his swift and ignominious fall amid a tsunami of sexual harassment claims in 2016, Roger Ailes might have been the most powerful man in media. He would have no doubt deleted the word “might” from that last sentence. The chief architect and right-wing visionary behind Fox News saw himself as a new kind of…
We gave it a B When battling darkness, either internal or corporeal, you’re not alone. In the world of Ashen, a RPG game that justifiably earned comparisons to Dark Souls after its surprise debut during this year’s Game Awards, it’s actually dangerous to go it alone. When choosing to explore the minimalistic animation style of…
When Paddy Chayefsky and Sidney Lumet’s Network hit movie theaters in November 1976, it zapped audiences like a lightning bolt of fire and brimstone. They also howled with laughter… probably because back then they still could. The film was “mad as hell”, no doubt about it. But it was also so outlandish and wildly exaggerated as…
At the beginning of Lebanese director Nadine Labaki’s Cannes-jury-winning import Capernaum, a 12-year-old boy sits behind an oversize table in an imposing courtroom. He’s the plaintiff, and sitting across the aisle are his teary-eyed parents. The judge asks why he is suing them. His response: for being born. Obviously, it’s a ludicrous and frivolous charge.…
Let’s hear it for the Bandit one more time! At the 52nd annual Country Music Association Awards on Wednesday night, the Grammy-nominated group Midland performed their new take on “East Bound and Down” in a tribute to the late actor Burt Reynolds. Taking its title from trucker CB jargon, “East Bound and Down” was the…
I’m so happy Fox was insane enough to bring back Gotham. The garish supersoap wrapped last year with an apocalyptic finale that demolished every bridge out of crazy town. Now the final season starts with poor Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) holed up in police headquarters, which has become a resource-depleted green zone in a city of…
In this spring’s sleeper horror hit A Quiet Place, the mere act of making a sound was lethal bait for the bogeyman; if it hears you, it will come. The new Sandra Bullock Netflix thriller Bird Box hinges on turning another basic human sense into a waking nightmare: sight. Things have been going to hell for a…
After nearly two weeks of teasing her gargantuan fan base with behind-the-scenes snaps and snippets, Ariana Grande has finally dropped her “thank u, next” music video. With references from Mean Girls, Legally Blonde, Bring it On, and 13 Going on 30, the five-and-a-half minute video is a delightful romp through early-2000’s cinematic iconography, and with its overtones of pink,…
