It’s time to retire the #TrueDetectiveSeason3 memes and start speculating about #TrueDetectiveSeason4 instead, as Mahershala Ali finally has his co-star in the HBO drama’s return: Carmen Ejogo. The “Selma,” “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” and “Alien: Covenant” star is on a well-deserved roll of late, and her role as Amelia Reardon — described as “an Arkansas schoolteacher who has a connection to two children who went missing in the 1980s” — looks set to continue it.

Woody Harrelson Explains Why He Won’t Return For More ‘True Detective’
The third season of “True Detective” is slowly coming together, with Mahershala Ali slated to star, and Jeremy Saulnier (“Blue Ruin,” “Green Room“) lined up to direct.

Halloween 2017: 11 Movies You Should Watch on Shudder

  • DailyDead
We’re in the last remaining days of October, meaning many of us will be trying to cram in as many horror movies as possible between now and Halloween. For my last round of Shudder picks this month, I thought I’d go with a much looser theme: there’s nothing that ties these titles together except that they’re really good movies I think you should watch. Some you may recognize, others may be less familiar to you. All of them are worth streaming on Shudder.

The Bride of Frankenstein (1935, dir. James Whale) It’s not officially October without the Universal Monsters, so big thanks to Shudder for adding most of the big ones to their expanding library of streaming options. There’s no wrong choice when it comes to the classics, but I’ll make the case that Universal never got better than The Bride of Frankenstein, James Whale

The 15 Best Horror Directors of the 21st Century

The 15 Best Horror Directors of the 21st Century
“It” may be a box office smash, but it’s hardly the only horror movie worth talking about these days. Just 17 years in, and the 21st century has already played home to a remarkable number of truly chilling and inventive horror offerings, from a resurgence in J-horror remakes to a continued affection for the classic series of yesteryear, to the massive dominance of the “Conjuring” movie universe and even a “Saw” franchise so dominant that it’s already cycled back into resurrection territory, and that’s just the mainstream stuff.

Aided by a new crop of filmmakers beholden to both their own obsessions and formative years steeped in the classics, the past two decades are shaping up to be some of the very best for the genre, with still more terror being turned out at a frightening clip. From visionaries like Guillermo del Toro and Gore Verbinksi, who can happily

Why Great Movies at the Telluride Film Festival Face Dire Futures — Critic’s Notebook

Why Great Movies at the Telluride Film Festival Face Dire Futures — Critic’s Notebook
On the penultimate day of the 2017 Telluride Film Festival, 650 people crowded into the Palm Theater for a surefire commercial bet: “Battle of the Sexes,” Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris’ crowd-pleasing throwback to the cross-gender 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs, with Emma Stone and Steve Carrell in the lead roles. The movie does nothing groundbreaking, but delivers a respectable ode to a feminist hero and the media brouhaha surrounding her legacy. Before the screening even started, the real Billie Jean King waved to the audience onstage and received a standing ovation. The mood projected a near-certainty that “Battle of the Sexes” would make bank at the box office when Fox Searchlight released it in late September, and awards season momentum could follow.

That’s all well and good for “Battle of the Sexes,” and certainly not the worst kind of movie to stand a chance at gaining

True Detective Season 3 Finds Its Director, Green Room's Jeremy Saulnier

Well, HBO did it - they made me excited for another season of True Detective. The permium cable company announced today that a third season of Nic Pizzolatto's crime anthology True Detective is happening and it's found its director in Green Room / Blue Ruin upstart Jeremy Saulnier. Both Saulnier and Pizzolatto will direct the show while Pizzolatto will serve as showrunner and sole writer. Interesting considering Netflix's recent hit show, Ozark, True Detective season three will "tell the story of a macabre crime in the heart of the Ozarks and a mystery that deepens over decades and plays out in three separate time periods." Mahershala Ali, who scored an Oscar for Moonlight, will lead season three as a state police detective from Northwest Arkansas. More...

‘True Detective’ Season 3 Director: Jeremy Saulnier is the New Cary Fukunaga and That’s Amazing News

‘True Detective’ Season 3 Director: Jeremy Saulnier is the New Cary Fukunaga and That’s Amazing News
True Detective” Season 3 is official. HBO has announced it will be getting back into business with controversial showrunner Nic Pizzolatto for another round of his anthology crime series, and anyone who is worried about the fate of the show after the hugely disappointing second season should remain optimistic for three good reasons. The first two have long been rumored: “Moonlight” Oscar winner Mahershala Ali is starring, and “Deadwood” creator David Milch is co-writing an episode and helping Pizzolatto behind the scenes. But the third piece of information is brand new and incredibly enticing: Jeremy Saulnier is directing alongside Pizzolatto.

Saulnier has emerged as one of the hottest indie genre filmmakers after back-to-back critical favorites “Blue Ruin” and “Green Room.” While cinephiles know his name, it’s a safe bet that “True Detective” Season 3 will provide him with his greatest exposure yet, and could elevate his career the same way Season 1 did for Cary Fukunaga.

Logan Lucky movie review: a waste of a heist

MaryAnn’s quick take… Fun enough and diverting enough while you’re in the middle of it, but hints of something much richer and more satisfying dangle just out of its reach. I’m “biast” (pro): mostly like Steven Soderbergh’s films; love Adam Driver

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Well, it’s no Ocean’s Eleven. But it does include a joke about how it’s no Ocean’s Eleven, so that makes it okay, I guess?

I confess that my disappointment over Logan Lucky might be bigger than the movie deserves. It’s fun enough and diverting enough while you’re in the middle of it, as long as you don’t think about it too much. I will probably never watch it again and not be sorry about that, but that is also true of many other movies,
