Review: ‘O.G.’ on HBO

Jeffrey Wright, the most compelling reason to watch HBO’s new film “O.G.,” is among television’s best actors at switching between codes or manners of being. On “Westworld,” his timeline-toggling android swaps personae so delicately that his performance gains in resonance when recalled in retrospect. (Perhaps that’s why Wright has been so oddly underrated through the […]

‘Green Eggs and Ham’ Animated Series Announces Full Cast for Netflix’s Dr. Seuss Adaptation

Netflix first announced a Green Eggs and Ham animated series back in 2015, and now, the dream has become a reality. The series will finally arrive this fall, and in anticipation of that, the streaming service has announced the full cast. They’ve also provided some first look images in the form of character posters. The animation looks to be appropriating Dr. Seuss’ famous style, albeit with a glossier finish.

This Week In Trailers: Life After Flash, It’s a Hard Truth Aint It, Chasing the Moon, Concrete Kids, Stay Free: The Story of The Clash

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we reconnect with the O.G. Flash Gordon, watch a trailer for a podcast, celebrate Apollo 11, remember what it was like to sneak out ...

Stacked-Up Book Thoughts: The Good and the Bad

Happy Monday. Looks like winter is finally here--I'm happy to report that we have a little snow and the temperatures have dropped. I actually like snow and don't mind the cold. . . . At least for a little while. By the end of February, however, you'll hear me whining about the weather. I didn't have a lot of reading time this week, because we spent way too much time watching the news. On Saturday we took a break to watch a movie, which turned out to be bust. Hold the Dark (2018) is set in Alas...

Original Content podcast: Netflix’s ‘Hold the Dark’ is beautiful, but utterly mystifying

“Hold the Dark” tells the story of Russell Core (played by Jeffrey Wright), a wolf expert who arrives in the Alaskan village of Keelut to investigate the disappearance of a young boy.

76 movies coming to theaters in fall 2018

Fall is traditionally the season that Oscar contenders hit the theaters. But for just about a month this time around, the Academy’s board of governors tempted filmgoers with the idea that it was creating an Oscar category for “outstanding achievement in popular film.” Alas, that was not to be as the Academy said it would scrap the idea for this year, apparently unable to come up with criteria for what that meant. Sorry, “Wreck-It Ralph 2.” You’ll probably have to be content with competing in the...
