"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

Blueprints: FYC Original Screenplays

Following thefirst major award nominationsof the season,Jorgetakes a chance to remind any Academy votes to keep in mind some of the best screenplays of the year…

Historically,Best Original Screenplay has been the category in which the Academy takes some of its biggest risks.Or maybe where it likes to think it does.This is the place where more daring,inventive,or "non-traditional"movies tend to get a shout-out,perhaps as a recognition of the overall novelty of the film without going as far as honoring those edgier achievements with a Best Picture nod or win...

Review: "Bad Times at the El Royale"

byChris Feil

Drew Goddard has become a Hollywood go-to screenwriters for charging genres with new life,moldingThe Martianwith equal parts brainy science and dopiness and both upholding and subverting the monster movie withCloverfield.Bad Times at the El Royaleis his first return to the director's chair since the horror spoof-but-also-not-a-spoofThe Cabin in The Woods,and again he has perhaps bitten off more than he can narratively chew.

This time Goddard is taking on pulpy pop noir,setting for a showdown at a highway hotel bisected by the California-Nevada border.Checking in are Cynthia Erivo's quiet lounge singer Darlene,Jon Hamm's chatterbox vacuum salesman Laramie Sullivan,Dakota Johnson as a mysterious woman named Emily,and Jeff Bridges giving the most Bridges as a suspicious priest named Father Flynn.The writer/director has Tarantino on the brain as Agatha Christie,chaptering the film by the various rooms hosting each guest and slowing revealing the night's dirty deeds from each of their perspectives.Think of it like a heterosexualCluemixed with a bisexualReservoir Dogs,but not as fun.
