Bad Times at the El Royale

Bad Times at the El Royale ★★★

This has some fun moments (and maybe the biggest jump scare of the year for me) but man alive it is way too long. I get the whole deal of adding to the tension and the mystery by showing things out of chronological order, but once the mysteries are revealed, we don't need to spend 10 minutes on another character's convoluted backstory. (By the time they dig into Miles' backstory with about 15 minutes left, my eyes were rolling out of my head for such an unnecessarily prolonged ending.) I will say that Jon Hamm's southern accent is bad and hilarious.
