Review: Crazy Rich Asians

"I loved it! Simple, but by no means dumb. Light, but with enough emotional beats and such attention to character detail to keep it from being fluff." - Val 

"If Michelle Yeph actually gets an Oscar nomination for this, I'll probably cry. (Tears of joy, of course.)" -Cash"

"Suspiria" First Look is Dakota Looking

by Chris Feil.

We've steadily been getting tidbits of late for Luca Guadagnino's Suspiria remake (or reimagining, as the director would prefer) - stories of the filming sending Dakota Johnson to therapy, Cinema Con attendees losing their lunch over the first body-breaking footage, and a reported sprawling 2.5 hour running time. What once sounded like a potentially dubious project is sounding more and more like something worthy of standing next to Dario Argento's original masterwork...

But what we've had precious little of is an official look at what Guadagnino has in store - those blurry set photos of a makeup-drenched Tilda Swinton do not count! But we can relax for now, because Amazon just gave us a first look at Johnson's braided ballerina. Immediately noticeable is the more era appropriate color pallete versus Argento's primary color opulence. Is Dakota's pensive face the calm before a very gory storm, or is she just thinkin' about witches?

Suspiria will arrive (oddly late for Halloween) on November 2nd.

GAH I can't wait for this film! I love the original Suspiria and while I'm generallyextremely skeptical
regarding remakes of such singular films, the fact that this time the remake is helmed by a genuine artist of some note, and not some complete hack hired by Michael Bay, has me more than a little curious. Hashtag Bated Breath!

One of my most anticipated for 2018!

Yes, this is an exciting project and I'm looking forward to seeing it - even if, during the goriest bits, I suspect I'll find myself wishing I was watching Call Me By Your Name (in which,as Nathaniel reminded us during Oscar season, the most violent thing that happened was a nosebleed).

The original will be a hard act to top

Dakota and her braid give me JLaw in mother! vibes. Not here to start any unnecessary comparisons, but I'd be very happy if this remake were as ambitious and just plain nuts as that film.

I also love that they aren't trying to recreate the look of the original.
