Drew Goddard gives us the Tarantino-style storytelling and flashbacks without the problematic issues. Cynthia Erivo is fantastic as is the rest of the cast.

Bad Times at the El Royale is what The Hateful Eight wanted to be without all of Tarantino's problematic issues. It has an ensemble cast that cover the entire spectrum and work extremely well together. You have Jon Hamm and Jeff Bridges being assholes and at their best. You have Cynthia Erivo putting in one hell of a performance both acting and singing wise. She's quietly the star of this movie. Dakota Johnson makes you forget she was in those terrible 50 Shades of Grey films. And finally, Chris Hemsworth is reunited with Drew Goddard who he worked with on one of his first films (Cabin in the Woods was released in 2012 but film back in 2009). 

Everything works for this film. The storytelling, the cast, the way it's shot...everything. This is a mystery/thriller done right and you won't want to miss it.

Listen as we break down why we loved this film so much.
