Drew Goddard's Bad Time's at the El Royale is a beautifully shot film with a fun setting and exciting premise that doesn't deliver on the promise it sells.

This tedious, arrogant film is precisely the type of pretentious, style-over-substance, arty crap that makes audiences hate movies like this.

A kitschy Lynchian dream.

Sure, the film is not completely original, but instead of feeling like a lazily constructed carbon-copy, it felt like a love letter to all the great directors that have come before it.

Imagine a Wes Anderson movie that was 95 percent less twee and really leaned into the darkness and that's kind of close.

EL ROYALE is a twisty, twisted delight. Smart script, excellent actors, really great camerawork. What else do you need?
November 26, 2018
The mystery element of the plot is less engrossing than I think Goddard wants it to be but everything else, from the performances to the lavish setting and pitch perfect camera work, more than make up for this small misstep.

A sluggish march, running a good 40 minutes longer than it has any reason to do.

An exceedingly (and impressively) ambitious effort...
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
November 7, 2018
... a very tight drama, similar to lock-box horror films where no one escapes until the movie ends and the survivors are tallied... It needs no prequel, no sequel, and is near-perfect as is.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
