So with all of the chaos of the previous week, you could have missed that Friday was the ultimate episode of Jeopardy! with Alex Trebek as host. Trebek, who died in November at age 80 after a battle with most cancers, hosted the answer-and-question sport present for 37 years. The present posted a best-of spotlight reel of Trebek’s performances over time (bear in mind the brouhaha when he shaved his mustache?!) and it could make you tear up a bit. My favourite appreciation of Trebek was from James Poniewozik in the New York Times, which concludes: “He was our trusted man with the solutions, even in occasions when actuality got here to us within the type of a query.”
Out new trailers this week vary from darkish and creepy to quirky to unsettling (which, to be completely trustworthy, I choose the entire above to syrupy vacation motion pictures). Let’s go.
A film director fretting about her age meets a mysterious screenwriter on a prepare, and the 2 are drawn right into a bizarre relationship. Love noir film.

Chiwetel Ejiofor (one other fave) additionally stars in Locked Down, which hits HBO Max January 14th.
Derek DelGaudio’s In & Of Itself
What is that this weirdness about? Put merely, it’s a one-man present by Derek DelGuadio, who describes himself as a “storyteller and conceptual magician.” IndieWire’s review says it’s a mix of “stage trickery and alluring autobiographical asides,” that’s additionally a “meditation on existential craving.” Hey I’m down for no matter. Directed by Frank Oz and produced by Steven Colbert (yep and yep!), In & of Itself hits Hulu January twenty second.
Stanley Tucci and Colin Firth star as a companions of 20 years touring throughout England to go to household and pals. It’s not only a stunning street journey film, although; Tucci’s character Tusker has dementia and is slowly shedding his reminiscence, so the pair are aware of the worth of the time they’ve left collectively.
