‘Vinyl 1×07: The King and I’ Review

28 March 2016 8:25 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

“One must be like water.”

The King and I’ is a fucking frustrating episode of Vinyl, which is turning into a fucking frustrating show. There’s that Elvis cameo, lightning from a clear sky, and to either side of it are fields of mayonnaise. Events play out like someone’s checking off squares on a prestige drama bingo card. Soporific scenes of West Coast boredom, more anemic musical interludes, women tossed into the plot like an afterthought to enable a thoroughly pointless twist. Sure, there’s a vague theme of rebellion underlying the whole thing, but it isn’t enough to hold it together when all we have to watch is Ray Romano’s mid-life crisis and Jaimie’s terse stand-off with two old women to whom she is…related? And that shit with Clark in the mail room belongs on an episode of Workaholics. 

But man oh man, that scene with Elvis. »

The Hateful Eight

26 March 2016 9:25 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Did Quentin Tarantino stumble this time out? His tale of western killers sharing a snowbound cabin builds almost zero suspense, and the verbal excess and violent grossness lack Tarantino's usual clever, wickedly funny edge. And 70mm cooped up in a dim interior? It's A Long Day's Journey into Lincoln Logs. Totally dig Jennifer Jason Leigh and Ennio Morricone, though. The Hateful Eight Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD Anchor Bay / Weinstein 2015 / Color / 2.76 widescreen (Ultra Panavision 70) / 187 min. / Street Date March 29, 2016 / 39.99 Starring Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Bruce Dern, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tim Roth, Walton Goggins, Demián Bichir, Michael Madsen, James Parks, Dana Gourrier, Zoë Bell, Lee Horsley, Gene Jones, Channing Tatum. Cinematography Robert Richardson Film Editor Fred Raskin Original Music Ennio Morricone Production Design Yohei Taneda Produced by Richard N. Gladstein, Shannon McIntosh, Stacey Sher Written and Directed by Quentin Tarantino
