Hearts Beat Loud

Hearts Beat Loud (2018)
★★★ / ★★★★

Jaded viewers might assume that the premise of a father-daughter duo forming a band called We Are Not a Band—cheeky, possibly twee—will offer mere puppies and rainbows, but “Hearts Beat Loud,” written by Brett Haley and Marc Basch, is sharper than the average comedy-drama-musical because it shows that life does not move out of anybody’s way. 634 more words

Bad Times at the El Royale

The title promises “bad times” and that’s exactly what this film delivers.  In saying that I am not criticizing Bad Times at the El Royale.  It’s a well-made variation on the multiple perspective crime genre (think Pulp Fiction) and it will keep you guessing until the end as each character is introduced and additional information is gained from each new perspective.   299 more words

Not Quite Jackie, Not Quite Bill, but Definitely Not Cheesy - Bad Times at the El Royale

First off, my apologies for not posting these past few weeks. As previously mentioned, I was on a work assignment that took up an inordinate amount of time. 1,025 more words


Bad Times at the El Royale

If ever there was a movie that is excessively overt in its desire to be the next ‘cult classic’, then this is most certainly it. Given that the term Tarantinoesque has been legitimised through its inclusion in the Oxford Dictionary, anybody seeking a film (other than those from the man himself) that might loosely demonstrate what the word means need look no further than this latest effort from Drew Goddard. 600 more words

Bad Times at the El Royale indeed.

The bare premise, one of the only threads laid bare in some very cagey promotion, is one of those ideas with the most abounding potential. 441 more words


Review: 'Hearts Beat Loud' Sings With Emotion and Love

Actors like Nick Offerman often do not get their due. Offerman was an integral piece of one of the great comedies of the past decade, yet never received an Emmy nomination. 825 more words


Bad Times At The El Royale⭐⭐⭐

I’ve enjoyed many of writer-director Drew Goddard’s work, both on the big and small screens (from The Martian and The Cabin in the Woods to Lost, Daredevil and The Good Place) so my expectations are elevated. 236 more words
