Last Night In Soho Gets A Curated Playlist Of Tunes Handpicked By Edgar Wright Himself

There's nothing like a good soundtrack. The right needle-drop can elevate a moment into surrealism, like Dean Stockwell's swaying dance to Roy Orbison's "In Dreams" in David Lynch's masterpiece "Blue Velvet." Edgar Wright understands the necessity of the right sound for a given story, which is why viewers can name at least one song intrinsically associated with each of his films. Quick, what movie do you think of when you hear Queen's "Don't Stop Me Now?" Exactly. Even as far back as Wright's di...

Edgar Wright Has No Plans To Ever Make A Shaun Of The Dead Sequel

In 2004, director Edgar Wright burst onto the scene with "Shaun of the Dead," a hilarious zombie movie which, like the very best parodies, serves as an effective entry in the genre it's sending up. Despite Wright going on to eventually complete his so-called "Cornetto Trilogy," some fans have asked the filmmaker if he'll ever make a direct sequel to "Shaun of the Dead." If you're one of those people holding out hope for seeing the further adventures of Shaun and Ed, it sounds like you should dro...

Cinema’s classiest actor on being wooed by Wes Anderson for The French Dispatch, playing Bond’s CIA buddy Felix and why he’s fighting for thinkers in an age of vulgarityWith his soulful gravitas, rich vocal tones and understated cool, Jeffrey Wright is one of those actors who brings dramatic heft to anything in which he appears.

The Forgotten City Is a Clever GOTY Contender You Shouldn’t Miss

Many games have roots in mods. Rocket League started out in Unreal Tournament. PUBG had its early days in ARMA. DOTA 2 can be traced back to Warcraft III. The Forgotten City is one of those titles as it began as a Skyrim mod and has since blossomed into its own game. But it’s not just noteworthy because of its origins; it’s noteworthy because it’s an unforgettable adventure and one of the best games of the year. It may not seem that way from the outside. While it is visually pleasing, it still v...

Last Night In Soho Reveals The Thrilling Next Era Of Edgar Wright [Fantastic Fest]

The most exciting thing about "Last Night in Soho" is that it feels unlike any other Edgar Wright film, while being, unmistakably, an Edgar Wright film. This is undeniably the filmmaker who made "Shaun of the Dead" and "Scott Pilgrim vs the World," but his work on this new London-set, time-jumping horror movie is far removed from his earlier filmography. Before our very eyes, an already-skilled filmmaker has refused to keep doing the same thing. It may feel insulting to say he's grown up, so let...

Senior Living: Dentists chip away at uninsured problem by offering patients membership plans

By Phil Galewitz, Kaiser Health News Nevada dentist David White has seen diseased and rotted teeth in the mouths of patients who routinely put off checkups and avoided minor procedures such as fillings. While dental phobia is a factor, White said, the overriding reason people avoid treatment is cost. To help patients lacking dental insurance, White, in 2019, started offering a membership plan that looks much like an insurance policy — except it’s good only at his offices in Reno and Elko.

Angels’ Jared Walsh heats up with renewed hitting strategy

ANAHEIM — Jared Walsh stopped his second-half slide by rediscovering the left side of the field. Although the Angels’ first baseman made the All-Star team, his numbers had been in a steady decline until a few weeks ago. The difference is that Walsh made a conscious effort to hit the ball to the left side again. “I was to the point where I was way too pull heavy,” the left-handed hitter said. “I know that throughout my career when I’ve been good, left-center is really where I try to drive the bal...
