Movie Review: The Coen Brothers’ Hail, Caesar!

Hail, Caesar George Clooney

Hail, Caesar!
Directors: Joel and Ethan Coen
Writers: Joel and Ethan Coen
Cast: Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Alden Ehrenreich, Ralph Fiennes, Jonah Hill, Scarlett Johansson, Frances McDormand, Tilda Swinton, and Channing Tatum
Release Date: February 5, 2016

The Coen Brothers films are the reason why we go to the movies. And as such we are given an experience unlike any other. From the drama of a struggling musician in Inside Llewyn Davis to the issues of morality in No Country For Old Men to the dark comedy of Fargo, the Coens prove time and again that they are clearly ahead of the curve and are just the smartest men in the room.

Their latest project, Hail, Caesar! is like a love letter to the Golden Age of Hollywood. Which is great, if it actually took the time to be something other than just a love letter to the Golden Age of Hollywood. While the film touts an incredible all-star cast playing roles of all sizes, it is probably too smart for its own good.

Josh Brolin and George Clooney in Hail, Caesar!

The Coen Brothers‘ long-gestating Hail, Caesar! is finally arriving into theaters this Friday. The film explores old Hollywood, an age where fixers are hired by major studios to keep actors out of trouble or clean up the trouble by handling the press. Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin), a fixer for Capitol Studios, not only has to deal with impending scandals, but also has to find out where a kidnapped Baird Whitlock (George Clooney) is being held by a mysterious group called The Future.

We were recently invited to sit down at the film’s press conference where Brolin, Clooney, Alden Ehrenreich, Channing Tatum, and Jonah Hill were on hand to talk about the film’s comedy, not improving a perfect Coen Brothers’ script, not making any suggestions to Roger Deakins, and more.

Bruce Campbell Joins The Cast Of ‘Fargo’ As Future President Ronald Reagan

Evil Dead II

Actor, director, author and international geek icon Bruce Campbell has more than the upcoming Starz series Ash vs. Evil Dead on his slate of future acting projects. He just signed on to play none other than actor-turned-politician Ronald Reagan on the critically acclaimed hit FX series Fargo.

Fargo, which is based on Joel and Ethan Coen‘s Oscar-winning 1996 comic thriller of the same name, premiered early last year to rave reviews, great ratings, and went on to win three Emmy awards and two Golden Globes (one of the latter went to star Billy Bob Thornton). The second season will be a prequel to the first and take place in the late 1970s, when Reagan was mounting his first campaign to be President of the United States.

‘The Big Lebowski,’ ‘Saving Private Ryan,’ ‘Ferris Bueller,’ More Added To National Film Registry

The Big Lebowski

Every year since 1989 the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry has selected twenty-five short films and full-length features to be recognized, in the words of the librarian of Congress James H. Billington, as “cultural, historical, or aesthetic cinematic treasures.” From Citizen Kane and Star Wars to Woodstock and This is Spinal Tap, each year’s list contains some of the most beloved and significant films ever made, and now the Dude and Ferris Bueller get to join their ranks.

Joel and Ethan Coen’s 1998 comic thriller The Big Lebowski, which has become a certified cult classic in the sixteen years since its theatrical, Steven Spielberg’s Oscar-winning World War II drama Saving Private Ryan, and John Hughes’ endlessly quotable high school comedy Ferris Bueller’s Day Off are among this year’s additions to the National Film Registry, bringing the total amount of films in the Registry to 650.

The Coen Brothers‘ films have always had a strong cast, but none as eclectic and powerful as Hail Caesar! The film already has cast a few Coen Brothers film alum members like George Clooney, Tilda Swinton, and Josh Brolin. The three will be joined by Channing Tatum and Ralph Fiennes. Now the film about Hollywood in the ’50s will be adding Scarlett Johansson and Jonah Hill.

This will be a reunion of sorts for Johansson who has worked with the Coen Brothers once before in The Man Who Wasn’t There; as well as for Hill, who will reunite with 21 Jump Street co-star Tatum for a fourth time. Hit the jump to see what they will play.

Based on True Grit by Charles Portis
Starring Jeff Bridges, Hailee Steinfeld, Matt Damon, Josh Brolin, Barry Pepper

Originally Released: December 22, 2010

The 2010 adaptation of True Grit by the Coen Brothers is a masterwork of modern filmmaking that handles the original source material with reverence and justice. Accompanied by a cast that collectively puts in stellar and memorable performances, and coupled with some breathtaking camerawork, True Grit is a must-see film.

Set at some point after the American Civil War and facing the turn of the century, the movie follows protagonist Mattie Ross (Hailee Steinfield), a 14-year old girl who is both educated and steadfast beyond her years. Following an incident in which her father was murdered by a brigand named Tom Chaney (Josh Brolin), Mattie, being the most forward-thinking of the remaining family members, takes it upon herself to address her father’s final businesses including his funeral – and her quest for both retribution and justice.
