‘Assassination Nation’ Review

Stars: Odessa Young, Hari Nef, Suki Waterhouse, Abra, Colman Domingo, Bill Skarsgård, Joel McHale, Anika Noni Rose, Bella Thorne, Maude Apatow, Cody Christian, Danny Ramirez | Written and Directed by Sam Levinson

The Salem witch trials are brought screaming into the 21st century through the lens of the modern teenage experience. This is the story of how the town “lost its f-ing mind.” With its cellphone alerts and glitchy, grindy soundtrack, it’s a snapshot of youth today. It will date instantly, of course. But right now it’s enough to make you ditch your smartphone and go back to the 3310. Assassination Nation is a sensory shotgun to the face. It’s multi-layered and it feels vital.

The highly fractured story gravitates around four high school friends. Popular and trendy, they lead their private lives, share some of it online, and then come together and chat about the bits they shared.

All American: Season One Ratings

Last year, The CW debuted three new TV series and cancelled two of them: Valor and Life Sentence. Now they've introduced the All American TV show. With its young cast, a high school setting, and football playing a central role, will it manage to draw in the audience of the younger-skewing littlest network, the way both a military drama and the story of a girl who's not dying after all failed to do? Will All American be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned.

TV Review: ‘All American’ on the CW

  • Variety
Fittingly for a show about a star football player, the CW’s “All American” comes out of the gate with a degree of hustle that’s startling even by the standards of a network pilot. Within the first few minutes, we’ve learned that Spencer James (the appealing and effective Daniel Ezra) tends to win games through his power of perception. We’ve also learned that much of his life off the gridiron has consisted of forcibly shutting the world out, as when a drive-by shooting mars the end of a game for his predominantly black high school in the Crenshaw neighborhood of Los Angeles. And before we’ve learned too much more about Spencer’s life, we’re shown exactly how it’s about to change.

Well before episode’s end, the premise of super producer Greg Berlanti’s latest series is established: Recruited by another school’s coach,

Lff 2018: ‘Assassination Nation’ Review

Stars: Odessa Young, Hari Nef, Suki Waterhouse, Abra, Colman Domingo, Bill Skarsgård, Joel McHale, Anika Noni Rose, Bella Thorne, Maude Apatow, Cody Christian, Danny Ramirez | Written and Directed by Sam Levinson

High school senior Lily and her crew of besties live in a haze of texts, posts, selfies, and chats – just like the rest of us. So when a provocateur starts posting details from the private digital lives of everyone in their small town of Salem, the result is a Category 5 shitstorm. We’re talking browser histories, direct messages, illegal downloads, secret text chains, and way, way, way worse. People get angry. Like, “rampaging murder posse” angry. And Lily finds herself right in the middle.

Sam Levinson’s Assassination Nation is one, if not the most, destructive, controversial and operatic films ever of such an excessive and progressive nature. Deconstructing and reconstructing itself in the wake of a complete bombardment

Second Opinion – Assassination Nation (2018)

Assassination Nation, 2018.

Written and Directed by Sam Levinson.

Starring Odessa Young, Hari Nef, Suki Waterhouse, Abra, Colman Domingo, Bill Skarsgård, Joel McHale, Anika Noni Rose, Bella Thorne, Maude Apatow, Danny Ramirez, Kelvin Harrison Jr., Noah Galvin, Susan Misner, Lukas Gage, Jeff Pope, Joe Chrest, J.D. Evermore, and Cody Christian.

Synopsis:

After a malicious data hack exposes the secrets of the perpetually American town of Salem, chaos decends and four girls must fight to survive, while coping with the hack themselves.

As many of you can probably understand, critics do not watch movies in a bubble, meaning that when Assassination Nation began with a “trigger warning” montage creating awareness that we are about to see pretty much every politically incorrect activity imaginable, I had Ptsd flashbacks to watching Life Itself a week ago, a movie that shoehorns every kind of conceivable trauma in a hokey, convoluted, and unearned way to generate emotion.

Movie Review – Assassination Nation (2018)

Assassination Nation, 2018.

Directed by Sam Levinson.

Starring Odessa Young, Hari Nef, Suki Waterhouse, Abra, Colman Domingo, Bill Skarsgård, Joel McHale, Anika Noni Rose, Bella Thorne, Maude Apatow, and Cody Christian.

Synopsis:

This is a thousand percent a true story about how the quiet, all-American town of Salem absolutely lost its mind.

Fuck me up some more why don’t you, Sam Levinson? Assassination Nation is a hand grenade lobbed with intent to disorient, alarm, and eviscerate. Far more than “evil internet” cloud-yelling. Closing monologue impact screams frustration from a generation that’s been failed and blamed by boomers who couldn’t abide by regulations they themselves issued. “Don’t look at me, I just got here,” scowls a revolution-ready girl into her laptop camera. Our world, the world so many people my age and younger inherited, is crumbling and we’re left piecing together someone else’s mess – yet we’re the bad guys?

‘All American’ Team Talks Portrayal of Class Differences, Lgbtq Community

  • Variety
The CW’s new drama “All American,” based on the real-life experiences of ex-NFL player Spencer Paysinger, centers on a a football player from South Central Los Angeles who transfers to a Beverly Hills high school. But the show cares more about telling stories of the human experience than specific football plays.

“While we seem nothing alike, at heart we have a very common story,” creator April Blair said of herself and Paysinger at the Paley Fall TV Preview Saturday. “In today’s world of division, I thought that was a really important story to tell — black/white, rich/poor, gay/straight — that we’re all, on a cellular level, far more similar than we are different.”

Blair says the show will combine and themes found in fellow football drama “Friday Night Lights” and hip-hop film “Straight Outta Compton” in a tale of two cities and a boy in between them.

At long last my favorite channel, the CW, has had their upfront and laid out their 6-day lineup for us. Since CW was the one channel got rid of the fewest shows there’s only 3 new shows that will be added this fall. But they are making a bold attempt this year by pushing programming into Sunday nights. Let’s go ahead and take a look at their lineup.

Well to start off our week Supergirl will be moving to Sunday nights and will be followed by the all-new revived Charmed.

“Stronger together.” That’s what Marisol tells her daughters, firebrand social justice warrior Melanie “Mel” Vera, and her sister, fun-loving Maggie, about their family. Mel is a graduate student in the women’s studies department her mother heads at Hilltowne University; Maggie is a freshman considering rushing a sorority (to Mel’s amused dismay) and going “on” again with her on-again off-again boyfriend Brian.

All American Trailer: The CW's Answer to Friday Night Lights?

All American looks like a show that was made for a premium cable network like HBO.

When a rising high school football player from South Central L.A. is recruited to play for Beverly Hills High, the wins, losses and struggles of two families from vastly different worlds — Compton and Beverly Hills — begin to collide. Inspired by the life of pro football player Spencer Paysinger.

The cast includes Daniel Ezra, Taye Diggs, Samantha Logan, Bre-z, Greta Onieogou, Monet Mazur, Michael Evans Behling, Cody Christian and Karimah Westbrook.

If you're a fan of either Friday Night Lights, The O.C. or 90210, then we're sure this show is going to be one of the ones you
