Just Us – by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross 

When I think of Reznor/Ross lately, I’m reminded of “In Motion” from their Academy Award winning score for The Social Network, the dark piano tones in “Hypomania” from The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, or the slow building craziness of “Technically, Missing” from the Gone Girl…

Sanctified (Live Version) – by Nine Inch Nails 

“Another Nine Inch Nails song, Lenny?”, you might ask. “Yes, another Nine Inch Nails song.”, I’ll probably reply. Call it an addiction. I stumbled upon a live version of Sanctified (off of 1989’s Pretty Hate Machine) with an absolutely fantastic bassline, thanks to Pino Palladino…

Rian Johnson returns with the Knives Out Trailer 

A filmmaker is sometimes only as good as their last film. If you mentioned director Rian Johnson’s name around 2012, it was probably met with wild applause. After all, he gave us the time travelling thriller Looper, with Bruce Willis, Emily Blunt and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

Mentioning Johnson now breeds a bit of contempt after his outing on Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The film was hit with reviews ranging from daring to awful, and most of the Star Wars fanbase don’t think of what he’s done there.

With his newest film, Knives Out, Johnson looks like he’s moving forward. The film appears to be a classic whodunit with a fantastic cast. Christopher Plummer, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, Daniel Craig, Don Johnson, Lakeith Stanfield, Michael Shannon, Katherine Langsford, and Jaeden Martell round out the cast list, which is pretty great overall. The story seems to cover the murder of a patriarch, and a family of suspects which reminds me of the classic Infocom game, Deadline.  Hoping for the best with this one.

Enjoy.
