Set in a rundown hotel with a dark past, Bad Times At Hotel El Royale, the story of seven strangers with secrets to bury and one last shot at redemption is a movie I can’t say I enjoyed a lot.
There were moments of beautiful cinematography and the absolutely divine brown suede coat on Dakota Johnson’s characters back. I also liked the pay-off in regards to the story of Mile’s Miller, the one hotel employee and what he was found to be capable of. Even though all the characters were well-acted, it was only really Miles Miller, the one hotel employee who’s story most intrigued me, and luckily, kind of paid off in a way that thrilled and surprised.
Where scenes are concerned, the one when Cynthia Erivo’s Darlene completely verbally sizes up Chris Hemsworth’s Billy Lee. That’s a great moment because of the dialogue and Billy Lee’s inability to deny the truth.
As for what I liked quite a bit less in director Drew Goddard’s film, I didn’t enjoy the way the story was structured. I was annoyed by how pointless continuing to watch felt at times as a result. The film’s length, pace, basically the absence of a thoroughly engaging structure / natural flow for the entirety of the movie were the key lowlights.
I say if you’re really curious, give Bad Times At Hotel El Royale a chance. Perhaps you’ll find much to love. For me, my mind often went to other movies I’ve seen that featured many characters but remained thrillingly engaging throughout. I just wish I could name an even more suitable example than Magnolia (1999)right now…
Living In The Future’s Past is a new documentary presented by Jeff Bridges that aims to upend our way of thinking and provide original insights into how our fundamental nature influences our future as Humankind.To put it another way, who are and what are the life challenges we face?
Director Susan Kucera’s film promises beautifully captured imagery and valuable insight from the likes of theoretical physicist Leonard Mlodinow and British-American meteorologist and NASA astronaut Piers Sellers, to name just two…
I’m intrigued because the synopsis and this trailer has a similar vibe to Leonardo DiCaprio’s documentary Before the Flood (2016)which I enjoyed. I also like that Dr. Piers Sellers, the very same meteorologist / NASA astronaut who spoke during my favourite moment in DiCaprio’s documentary is also featured in this film.
Wesley Clark, Ruth Gates, Bruce Hood and Oren Lyons also make an appearance.
Starring Kate Beckinsale, Kiersey Clemons, Pierce Brosnan, Callum Turner and set in New York City, The Only Living Boy In New York is all about a recent college graduate whose life is upended by his father’s mistress…
I’m curious about the heartbreak that’s sure to find the protagonist. That’s my reason for watching – along with my curiosity about Callum Turner. I’m curious because he looks like someone I used to know in high school and I want to reminisce.
Cynthia Nixon, Debi Mazar and Faith Logan also star.
In Kingsman – The Golden Circle, the Kingsman headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage. Upon discovering an allied spy organization in the US. The two elite secret organisations must work together to defeat a common enemy…
Before the First Kingsman movie, Kingsman – The Secret Service, I mostly knew the film’s director Matthew Vaughn as an excellent producer to one of my favourite British directors, Guy Ritchie.Look at him now! I can’t wait to see what looks yet another very welcome and thrilling festival of style, action and adventure.
I don’t actually recall how things were left with Sofia Boutella’s very cool ‘Gazelle’ character in the first movie, but my hope is that this new instalment will be so good that I barely miss her, if at all.
