In lieu of a new episode of the Crooked Table Podcast (don’t worry, it’s still coming and will still address Harry Potter and the Cursed Child), I’m electing to kick off a new regular post that will recap some of what I’ve been up to each week. Too often, my barrage of freelance work prevents me from generating enough original content for CrookedTable.com to keep the site fully stocked. These posts — which will bear the title “Crooked Sightings” — will give you all the 4-1-1 about all the entertainment features, reviews and assorted other goodness I’ve been busy contributing to other sites. Since most of the titles are pretty self-explanatory, I’m going with a simple clickable list format, for your convenience. Enjoy, and of course, keep it Crooked!
In Episode 32 of the Crooked Table Podcast, Rob and Kai soar into a review of director Clint Eastwood’s new film Sully starring Tom Hanks, Aaron Eckhart and Laura Linney. Then, they crack open Hanks’ filmography to review some of their favorite performances by the actor with another edition of Let’s Talk About Six. Let’s hit it!
In Episode 31 of the Crooked Table Podcast, Rob braves Tropical Storm Hermine to review Don’t Breathe, the new film from Evil Dead director Fede Alvarez, as well as Kevin Smith’s wacky Tusk follow-up Yoga Hosers. Will these two filmmakers deliver the chills and B-movie thrills, respectively, that fans are expecting? Let’s find out together! Also, did you know there are new Ouija and The Ring sequels on the way? Yup, Rob shares his thoughts on that too. Enjoy!
