Fargo Season 3 Episode 4 Review – ‘The Narrow Escape Problem’

11 May 2017 4:15 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Shaun Munro reviews the fourth episode of Fargo season 3…

Fargo returns to business-as-usual after last week’s entertaining sojourn to Los Angeles, and things finally start coming together as Gloria is drawn towards the Stussys, while Emmit begins to feel the pinch from Varga and his lofty ambitions.

The Narrow Escape Problem” opens with a cameo-of-sorts from Fargo alum Billy Bob Thornton, who narrates a reading of Sergei Prokofiev’s beguiling fairy tale Peter and the Wolf, which serves to cement the pecking order of the show’s focal characters. A flowery device, perhaps, but it further concedes this season’s more experimental storytelling tenor, and that’s no bad thing.

Meanwhile, it was great fun seeing Ray assert himself at the bank while pretending to be Emmit, and this gave Ewan McGregor the hefty task of playing Ray-as-Emmit, which he pulled off spectacularly, especially with his delivery of the immortal one liner, »

‘Fargo’ Review: A New Ewan McGregor is Unveiled, As A Voice From the Past Tells a Fairy Tale for the Future

10 May 2017 8:13 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: The review below contains spoilers for “Fargo” Season 3, Episode 4, “The Narrow Escape Problem.”]

Immediate Reaction

The powder keg is lit. Time to explode.

We’ve been waiting for Ex-Chief Gloria Burgle (Carrie Coon) to connect the dots between Step-Father Stussey’s murder and the Stussey brothers for the past four weeks, and now she’s caught up. It took a trip to L.A. and a lot of time pissing off her new boss, but Gloria is ready to make things right; to find justice for the deceased; to protect the innocent from the wicked.

So why are we so terrified?

Part of it can certainly be attributed to the ominous musical and verbal allusions created by this week’s surprise narrator, Billy Bob Thornton. We’ve outlined them below — as well as their connection to Sergei Prokofiev’s “symphonic fairy tale for children,” “Peter and the Wolf” — for anyone with a touchy memory, but imagining the ghost of Lorne Malvo (Thornton’s »

'Fargo' Recap: The Wolf at the Door

10 May 2017 8:00 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Every so often, Fargo drops a reference to a character, location or plot-point from the Coen brothers-based source material – a satchel full of Carl Showalter's loot here, a namedropping of Stan Grossman there. But more than anything, what the TV show's taken from the film are its ideas. Each season has followed the interconnected lives of three main types: a sweet-natured, capable cop; a weaselly businessman who deals with the wrong people; and a darkly powerful nemesis with a well-articulated philosophy of amorality. This is life in and around icy Minnesota, »

Watch Epic Rogue One Battle Set to John Williams' Star Wars Score

1 May 2017 12:31 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

An awesome new fan-made edit shows what the epic battle scene at the end of Rogue One would have been like if it were set to John Williams' iconic score. It is abundantly clear after watching the behind the scenes extras of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story that Disney wanted to set the film apart from the rest of the Star Wars universe. The film was to be a one-off; no sequels, no prequels, just one standalone film to set up A New Hope. One of the more controversial ways besides not utilizing the famous opening crawl, was the decision to not use composer John Williams for the musical score, which makes Rogue One the first live action Star Wars film not to utilize the instantly recognizable talents of John Williams.

84-year old Williams said at the time of the release of Rogue One that his workload was too much, »

Movie Review – The Boss Baby (2017)

5 April 2017 4:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Boss Baby, 2017.

Directed by Tom McGrath.

Featuring the voice talents of Alec Baldwin, Miles Christopher Bakshi, Steve Buscemi, Jimmy Kimmel, Lisa Kudrow, and Tobey Maguire.

Synopsis:

Life is great for seven year old Tim.  As an only child, he gets his parents’ undivided attention – until his baby brother arrives and monopolises Mum and Dad.  Tim feels pushed out, but then he discovers this is no ordinary baby.  Not only does he wear a suit and tie and carry a briefcase, he’s a micro manager on a mission.

A little lad is perfectly happy as an only child until everything is upended by the arrival of a baby brother.  The boy feels neglected, the baby is stroppy, constantly demanding and loud, the whole home descends into chaos, and Mom and Dad are constantly frazzled.  Sounds like a decent enough idea for an animation…….

Except that DreamWorks have run into »
