I wanted to love this movie because I loved The Cabin in the Woods but I left slightly disappointed. It’s still a good movie and fun to watch. The movie looks fantastic. There were some great oners in here and the cinematography overall is great. I really did like all the crazy intertwined stories. Most of the characters were interesting enough but we hardly know them. Seeing Chris Hemsworth with his shirt off most of the movie sure is something. The soundtrack is great and Cynthia Erivo’s singing is really good. I just wish they stuck the landing a little bit better and this was 20 minutes shorter.

If Tarantino and Edgar Wright had a baby... it would have been born at the El Royale.

A film of two halves. The first hour is a very watchable tangled web of deceit, betrayal, crime and greed. It features some really impressive cinematography and a direction that is clearly inspired by the Coens and Tarantino. The (almost) single location setting works, and the air of mystery adds to the adequate performances by Jeff Bridges, Jon Hamm, Cynthia Erivo and Dakota Johnson. The second half however is just a mess of sillyness, poor scriptwriting and "how do we end this while stretching it out long enough". A missed opportunity.

To anyone that has not seen it yet: DO NOT WATCH THE TRAILER. Really doesn't do justice to the movie and spoils too much.


This movie had style. It wasn't perfect, no, but the overall tone and feel was just right.

I liked the way they intertwined all the subplots, slowly unwrapping th More

_Bad Times At The El Royale_ was exceptional. Through its preview period, I was hooked from the teaser trailer to the 24th TV Spot released. Drew Goddard knew how to make a wonderous and exciting thriller through its magnificent casting and so much more. All these trailers set high expectations whic More

**_Derivative, predictable, and dull_**

> _There is something about hotels that I find very romantic. You get to try on a different life in a hotel. You're usually in a new place when you're staying in a hotel. There's something about the experience that allows you to be a different person. You c More

Ok, Wow, I don't think I've seen a movie like that since the 90s. Some have gotten close, but this one absolutely stinks of clever 90s independent film...

...at least in that era where studios were putting serious bank behind indie films in an effort to score awards and produce something new that More
