Bad Times at the El Royale

Bad Times at the El Royale ★★★½

It fell notably in the third act in terms of how the flashbacks were edited into the story. 
But otherwise, absolutely exciting to watch, beautifully shot, and probably my favorite ensemble on screen. 
Jeff Bridges never loses his charisma.
Cynthia Erivo is a complete star in all aspects of her performance.
Dakota Johnson was remarkably brutal. Almost beautifully cruel.
Chris Hemsworth achieves the comedic, cultish factor received by his following.
Jon Hamm played a wholehearted favorite. I was ashamed to see him go.
Xavier Dolan was a whole MENACE; stealing the one scene he excelled in.
And Lewis Pullman...is trying not to be Tom Holland, but it’s not convincing. As well, his role was a favorite.
