Why is California such a great place to write murder mysteries?

It’s a bright and sunny day in California. Isn’t it always? No dark storminess here. Waves kiss golden beaches, and flowers sprout nonstop. There’s movie-star glitz and glam, and palm trees sway like swooning lovers. The perfect state for murder. It must be, judging by the sheer volume of mystery novels, detective stories, whodunits, heart-throbbing thrillers and noir nightmares set amid Cali’s pleasantries, thanks to some of the best crime writers around. Bodies push up happy little daisies in ...

This Week In Trailers: Bucket List, Stallone: Frank, That Is, Beginning, True Mothers

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 wanna be popular, we try and figure out why our life is crumbling, get a surprise six years after we adopt a child, and we get t...

‘Boss Level’ Trailer: Frank Grillo is Sick of Dying Over and Over Again

Last year, Hulu gave us a charming romance with a time loop twist in the form of Palm Springs, one of our favorite movies of 2020. This year, director Joe Carnahan (The Grey, The A-Team) is mixing up the time loop formula at Hulu in another way by giving us big, brutal action sequences in Boss Level. Frank Grillo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, The Purge: Anarchy) stars in Boss Level as a special forces agent who is being forced to relive the day of his murder over and over again. Sick of...

2020 Kaedrin Movie Awards

Welcome to the fifteenth annual Kaedrin Movie Awards! The idea is to recognize films for various achievements that don’t always reflect well on top 10 lists or traditional awards. There are lots of formal award categories and nominees listed below, but once those are announced, we’ll also leave some room for Arbitrary Awards that are more goofy and freeform. Finally, we’ll post a traditional top 10 list (usually sometime in early/mid-February). But first up is the awards! [Previous Installments ...

Joe Carnahan Time-loop Action Movie ‘Boss Level’ Gets March Release Date on Hulu

Joe Carnahan‘s action film Boss Level has been waiting since 2019 for someone to release it, and now Hulu has finally set a date: March 5. The time loop film features Frank Grillo, Mel Gibson, and Naomi Watts, and follows a former special forces agent who keeps repeating the same day: the day of his murder. Which means this is less like Groundhog Day, and more like Happy Death Day. Late last year we reported that Boss Level was headed to Hulu. Now, we have a date – March 5. The action film c...

Watched at Home: Top Streaming Films for the Week of January 2

Watched at Home: Top Streaming Films for the Week of January 2 Well, wonders never cease. After dropping from the top spot during the holiday movie rush, Christopher Nolan’s Tenet (as predicted) leapt back to No. 1 on DEG’s Watched at Home Top 20. It makes sense. Tenet is definitely a film you have to watch numerous times in order to never understand, which means it’ll probably stay atop the chart for a couple more weeks — especially considering the lack of competition.

Noomi Rapace Will Play ‘Hamlet’ in New Gender-Swapped Adaptation

Hamlet has been adapted to the screen many times before, but there’s a new adaptation on the way that’s trying something different: the lead will be gender-swapped.

This won’t be the first time a female lead has played Hamlet – Ruth Negga recently played the character in Gate Theatre Dublin’s production.

Walton Goggins steals show as assassin trying to take out Santa in Fatman (ars technica)

Enlarge / Mel Gibson plays Chris Cringle, a disillusioned Christmas shopkeeper in North Peak, Alaska. (credit: YouTube/Saban Films) There's a fine line between comedy and tragedy, which is why black comedy is a film genre that is notoriously tough to get right. Despite good performances and some nice moments, Fatman—in which Mel Gibson plays a gruff, grizzled, disillusioned Santa—doesn't quite succeed tonally in finding that elusive sweet spot. The trailer was certainly promising, but the conc...
