The fourth episode of Titans continued to elevate the show, while also introducing us to the team that will be part of the next Original series on DC Universe, Doom Patrol.
The second episode of Titans adds more to the series in every way. But it does have some flaws that seem to be inherent in DC properties.
You may have seen the trailer for the independent film Sorry To Bother You earlier this year. It stars Lakeith Stanfield who has been growing in popularity thanks to a small role in last year’s Get Out and the TV show Atlanta. The supporting cast features Tessa Thompson (Thor: Ragnarok), Arnie Hammer (Call Me By Your Name), Terry Crews (Brooklyn 99), Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead), Omari Hardwick (Power), Jermaine Fowler (Superior Donuts), and Danny Glover (Lethal Weapon), as well as the voice talents of David Cross (Arrested Development), Patton Oswalt (The Goldbergs), and Lily James (Baby Driver). That cast alone is incredibly inviting. The trailers sold the film as a story about a black man, Cassius Green, who takes a job at a telemarketing service. He uses his “white voice” to become a “power caller,” rising within the ranks of the company and discovering more than what he anticipated. But this film is so much more than that.
Last night FXX aired the season finale for the 13th season of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. And while the show is known to be insane and inappropriate, it’s one of the best and most beautiful episodes of television this year.
Marvel and Netflix released the third season of the hit series Daredevil earlier this month, and it’s one of the best things they’ve ever put together.
The Old man and the Gun is a heartwarming, charming film that would be nearly perfect if not for one specific casting choice.
Writer-Director Drew Goddard has grown a career with genre material: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Lost, Cabin in the Woods, The Martian. His writing lends itself to ensemble pieces, where every character is a piece of a puzzle. Bad Times at the El Royale is the largest and best puzzle yet.
