    The Americans

    Pilot is on Hulu. The Americans is about two Russian spies (Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys) who have been living in the US for around 15 years when the show begins. It's set in 1981, so the soundtrack features Fleetwood Mac and Phil Collins, among others. Noah Emmerich plays a counter-terrorism agent who moves in across the street. I'm not sure what I think of it so far. There are several interesting elements to the show, but I had a hard time buying Russell as a Russian in her training flashbacks (doesn't help that she looks pretty much the same age in both time periods, either). I've been gorging on Alias recently, so it's hard for me not to compare Russell to Lena Olin. I think the show is shot to look like it was made in the early 80s; if it's not, the cinematography is just really odd.

    Mary Poppins Returns (2018)

    Disney is developing a sequel to Mary Poppins which would take place 20 years after the first one and be based on the other Poppins stories that P.L. Travers wrote. Rob Marshall is on board to direct.

    The Miseducation of Cameron Post

    The Miseducation of Cameron Post, which is about a "gay conversion" camp, just got a rave Sundance review in The Guardian. It stars Chloe Grace Moretz and was directed by Desiree Akhavan, whom I recently liked in Creep 2.

    First Reformed

    I figured out I was watching about as soon as I could, and I guessed the climax almost as quickly, but really threw me for a loop. None of that dampened my appreciation of the movie, though. In some ways, I wonder if the foreshadowing was deliberately heavy to give you a sense of inevitability and fatalism as you're watching it; knowing what was probably going to happen didn't make it any less agonizing to watch it play out.

    Ready Player One

    I thought Ready Player One was a fairly entertaining novel, mainly as a nostalgia trip, but I never imagined Steven Spielberg directing it. The novel also appropriates a bunch of 70s and 80s video games, and I wonder if they'll get the rights to all of them for the movie. Robert Zemeckis and Christopher Nolan had also been rumored directors.

    The Yellow Birds

    Link to our thread for the novel. Screen Daily reports that the film adaptation of The Yellow Birds will be directed by David Lowery (Ain't Them Bodies Saints) and star Tye Sheridan, Will Poulter, and Benedict Cumberbatch. I liked Saints quite a bit, so this is intriguing. For those who have read the novel, is it more contemplative, which would fit Lowery's style, or more of a typical war story?

    Link to our thread on the Emma Donoghue novel Room. She wrote the screenplay, too. This teaser gives away basically the entire plot, by the way. Starring Brie Larson. Directed by Lenny Abrahamson (Frank).

    The Disaster Artist

    James Franco's movie about the making of Tommy Wiseau's infamous bad movie The Room has changed titles. It was originally called The Disaster Artist (after the book by Greg Sestero, co-star of The Room and something like Wiseau's confidante), but is now The Masterpiece, which is much worse title. The movie also stars Dave Franco as Sestero and Seth Rogen as Sandy Schklair, The Room's script supervisor.
