Blue Bayou Review: An Urgent Immigrant Story Told With A Thoughtful, But Heavy Hand

"Where are you from?"It's a question that immediately puts Justin Chon's Antonio LeBlanc on edge, and which he avoids answering in his uneasy job interview in "Blue Bayou," Chon's third directorial effort. Antonio was born in Korea, but the only home he's ever known is the Louisiana backwaters. Adopted at three years old by white parents, Antonio spent his childhood jumping from foster home to foster home, until he built a family for himself with his loving, maybe all-too forgiving wife Kathy (a...

The 15 Scariest Horror Movies On Hulu Right Now

Like most streaming services, Hulu is not the place to go if you're looking for older movies. Its 20th century horror selection is limited, at best. However, its selection of recent horror films (especially the smaller, independent films from the likes of Neon and IFC) is excellent. Hulu is also a great home for women-directed horror films, including "The Other Lamb," "Sea Fever," "Little Joe" and "Saint Maud" (to name some of the best ones). However, I have been tasked with choosing the scaries...

Movies Like Interstellar That Are Definitely Worth Watching

"Interstellar" is the closest thing to a classic science fiction movie that Christopher Nolan' has made so far, blending hard sci-fi tropes with an earnest exploration of humanity's drive to survive. For science fiction fans, it's instantly familiar stuff. Nolan's storytelling doesn't always land as powerfully as the movie's visual effects, but "Interstellar" still works as a thoughtful, understated love-letter to the stories that built the science fiction genre.Stripped to its basics, "Interste...

The 20 Best Heist Movies Of All Time

Heist movies transcend genre. You can have frivolous, fun heist movies like "The Italian Job," or heartfelt, straight-faced ones like "Point Break." The heist itself can be meticulously planned and meditative, like the one in "Inside Man," or fall apart before it's even begun, as in "Good Time."To be clear, this is a list of heist films, not movies about con artists. "The Sting," "The Brothers Bloom," and "Gambit" are all brilliant, but the heist tropes -- planning the mission, gathering the tea...

HBO Max Orders Full Circle Limited Series From Steven Soderbergh

Steven Soderbergh can't stop, won't stop, so he's got yet another new project on the way. The prolific filmmaker — so prolific that he kept directing stuff even when he "retired" once — is reuniting with "No Sudden Move" writer Ed Solomon for the HBO Max series "Full Circle." The show involves a "botched kidnapping" and "long-held secrets connecting multiple characters" in New York. Soderbergh will direct all six episodes of the series and serve as executive producer with Solomon serving as writ...

‘Fear Street’ Director Leigh Janiak on Picking Perfect Needledrops, Crafting Kills, and Writing a Queer Love Story [Interview]

Netflix’s Fear Street movie trilogy, based on the young adult novels by R.L. Stine, are an exciting excercise in telling a compelling story through three shorter stories. The first film, Fear Street Part 1: 1994 is a hard hit of nostalgia for anyone who grew up in the Scream era. It introduces us to the town of Shadyside, where the people are cursed and everyone’s pretty miserable, but teenager Deena (Kiana Madeira) wants more for herself. She also wants more for her girlfriend, Sam (Olivia Wel...

How ‘No Sudden Move’ Writer Ed Solomon Drew Inspiration From the Past and the Future of Storytelling [Interview]

No Sudden Move would fit right in with a classic Hollywood noir marathon. Out of director Steven Soderbergh‘s diverse filmography, it’s most reminiscent of his movie The Good German in its intent. Together, the filmmaker and screenwriter Ed Solomon sought to capture a visual language rarely seen anymore. Benicio del Toro‘s Ronald Russo and Don Cheadle‘s Curt Goynes could pop in a ’50s noir and never look or sound out of place. From the patience of the camerawork to the characters who are often ...

‘No Sudden Move’ Review: Steven Soderbergh’s Slick, Breezy Crime Caper Gets By With Its Game Cast

You can’t trust anybody these days in No Sudden Move, Steven Soderbergh‘s slick, breezy crime saga about a group of nefarious crooks from all walks of life chasing after the same MacGuffin. The prolific Soderbergh shot this star-studded caper during the pandemic, but this isn’t another of the filmmaker’s shot-on-the-fly iPhone movies. Working with his trusty cinematographer Peter Andrews (who is really just Soderbergh himself using a pseudonym), the filmmaker has put together something shadowy ...

Could There Be an ‘Ocean’s 14’? It Sounds Like Steven Soderbergh is Considering It

Secure your massive safe of cash, Danny Ocean (George Clooney) and his boys might be coming for your fortune — for a fourth time. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Don Cheadle revealed that there have been discussions of another Oceans movie — with franchise director Steven Soderbergh himself!

Oscars 2021: ABC Executive Talks About the “Calculated Risk” of Ending With the Best Actor Category

The executive producers of the Oscars made several unconventional decisions that affected last night’s broadcast of the 93rd Academy Awards, but perhaps none were as surprising as switching up the order that the awards were handed out. Chadwick Boseman was the heavy favorite to posthumously win Best Actor for his outstanding performance in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, and Steven Soderbergh, Stacey Sher, and Jesse Collins decided to announce the Best Actor category last, which would have presumably...
