This Week s Ketchup brings you more headlines from the world of film development news, covering such titles as Halloween Kills, Peter Pan Wendy, and Wolfman. This WEEK S TOP STORYBRAD PITT BOARDING BULLET TRAIN FOR JOHN WICK DIRECTOR(Photo by Andrew Cooper/©Columbia Pictures)Brad Pitt has enjoyed steady success throughout his career, even as recently as last year, when his performance in Quentin Tarantino s Once Upon A Time in Hollywood garnered widespread acclaim, but it s been a little while since he appeared in a proper, traditional action film unless, of course, you count his blink-and-you ll-miss-it cameo in Deadpool 2. With that in mind, he s now set to work with the guy who helped re-establish Keanu Reeves as an action star: David Leitch (John Wick, Atomic Blonde, and the aforementioned Deadpool 2). Pitt has signed with Sony Pictures to star in an action thriller called Bullet Train that will be directed by Leitch, whose most recent film was last year s Fast Furious Presents: Hobbs Shaw (Fresh at 67%). Bullet Train will be an adaptation of the Japanese novel Maria Beetle by Kotaro Isaka and will tell the story of five assassins who find themselves on the same train from Tokyo, which undoubtedly leads to lots of shooting and stabbing and kicking and punching. Because, you know, action.Other Top Headlines1. JUDE LAW IN TALKS FOR CAPTAIN HOOK IN DISNEY S LIVE-ACTION PETER PAN WENDY(Photo by Alex Bailey/©Focus Features)It certainly seems like there have been a lot of live action takes on J.M. Barrie s Peter Pan in recent years, including films as 2003 s Peter Pan (Certified Fresh at 77%), 2015 s Pan (Rotten at 27%), this year s Wendy (Rotten at 37%). One of the companies that has stayed out of the live-action Peter Pan business until this point has actually been the one that would ve seemed the most obvious choice, which is Walt Disney Pictures. Disney s 1953 animated Peter Pan is arguably the play s most famous adaptation, and that film s version of Tinker Bell became an icon for Walt Disney Pictures, used in various opening credit animations over the years. On top of that, Disney is very much in the ongoing process of adapting its most famous animated films into live-action ones. The live-action adaptation of Peter Pan will be called Peter Pan Wendy, and it will be directed by David Lowery, who previously directed the live remake of Pete s Dragon (Certified Fresh at 88%). We don t yet know which young actors will play the title characters (or Tinker Bell, for that matter), but this week, the news broke that Jude Law is in talks with Disney to play the villain, Captain Hook. If he signs on, he will take on a role previously played by the likes of Dustin Hoffman (Hook), Jason Isaacs (Peter Pan), and Hugh Jackman (Pan).2. THE INVISIBLE MAN DIRECTOR ALSO IN TALKS FOR RYAN GOSLING S WOLFMAN (Photo by Saeed Adyani/©Columbia Pictures/courtesy Everett Collection)Australia s Leigh Whannell is a producer, director, and screenwriter who got his start collaborating on Saw with future Aquaman director James Wan in a career arc that most recently included Universal Pictures reboot of The Invisible Man (Certified Fresh at 91%), starring Elisabeth Moss. That film happened after Universal Pictures scrapped their previous Dark Universe plans for rebooting their classic monsters, which would have included Johnny Depp starring in The Invisible Man and rumors of Dwayne Johnson possibly starring in Wolfman. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic happening just as The Invisible Man was opening in theaters, the film was otherwise a financial success, so Univeral Pictures is moving forward with similar reboots, including Wolfman. Just about a month ago, the news broke that Ryan Gosling was the studio s top choice to star in Wolfman, and it now appears that Gosling has indeed signed on, as Universal Pictures is in talks with Leigh Whannell about writing and directing Wolfman to continue the thread between The Invisible Man and their ambitious werewolf movie. Whannell and Gosling have reportedly wanted to work with each other for some time. 3. OPRAH WINFREY LAUNCHES PARTNERSHIP TO ADAPT PULITZER PRIZE-WINNING THE 1619 PROJECT (Photo by Priscilla Grant/Everett Collection)Last year, The New York Times Magazine began a new series called The 1619 Project, named after the arrival of the first ship of enslaved Africans to the coast of the colony of Virginia. Producer Oprah Winfrey is now collaborating with Lionsgate and The New York Times on a series of feature films and television projects that will be based on The 1619 Project. Journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones won the 2020 Pulitzer Prize for The 1619 Project, and she will be a key participant in the projects Oprah Winfrey has planned. It is not yet known which of the true stories documented in The 1619 Project will be adapted as feature films, but the Variety s news item references titles like, America Wasn t a Democracy Until Black Americans Made It One and American Capitalism is Brutal: You Can Trace That to a Plantation. The 1619 Project scope will reportedly include multiple feature films, TV series, documentaries, and other cross-platform content for a global audience. 4. MAZE RUNNER AND JOJO RABBIT STARS SOUGHT FOR PETER FARRELLY S NEXT FILM(Photo by Dee Cercone, Elizabeth Goodenough/Everett Collection)Before winning an Academy Award for Best Picture for Green Book (Certified Fresh at 77%), director Peter Farrelly was probably best known for comedies like Dumb and Dumber and There s Something About Mary. For his next film, Farrelly is returning to the 1960s setting of Green Book with an adaptation of the non-fiction book The Greatest Beer Run Ever, about a young man who traveled to Vietnam to reunite with friends who were soldiers in the war. The first actor to sign on for The Greatest Beer Run Ever a few weeks ago was Viggo Mortensen, who also starred in Green Book. This week, Mortensen was reportedly joined by Dylan O Brien, one of the stars of MTV s Teen Wolf (who s speculated but not confirmed to be playing the lead role). For the female lead, producers are also reportedly eyeing Jojo Rabbit co-star Thomasin McKenzie, but she s not signed yet.5. TIFFANY HADDISH WILL TRAVEL TO AFRICA TO BE CROWNED HOMECOMING QUEEN (Photo by Michele K. Short/Universal Pictures)Once a separate Hollywood studio, the former DreamWorks SKG, co-founded by Steven Spielberg, has in recent years been divided a few times over, with the live-action production company now being called Amblin Partners (not to be confused with Spielberg s own Amblin Entertainment). Some of the recent films produced by Amblin Partners have included First Man, Best Picture Oscar-winner Green Book, and ten-time Academy Award nominee 1917. Amblin Partners is now developing a comedy for Tiffany Haddish (Girls Trip, Night School) called Homecoming Queen to be written by Raamla Mohamed, a TV writer who s worked on Scandal and Little Fires Everywhere. Haddish will star in and also produce Homecoming Queen, which is reportedly inspired by Haddish s own experience traveling to Africa thinking she was royalty, only to find out that that designation means something completely different there. Other upcoming movies that share an African royalty theme include Eddie Murphy s sequel Coming 2 America (12/18/2020) and Marvel s Black Panther II (5/6/2022).6. JANELLE MONAE S ACTIVELY PETITIONING TO BE MARVEL S STORM IN X-MEN REBOOT (Photo by Elizabeth Goodenough/Everett Collection)Most sites reporting on movie development news try to avoid stories that hew too close to rumors, but every once in a while, a big enough star will actively campaign for a role that it will inevitably become a story, even if there s no deal in negotiation. The most recent example of this came just this week from singer and actress Janelle Monáe (Moonlight, Hidden Figures), whose horror film Antebellum is among those that would have originally been released in theaters if not for the COVID-19 pandemic. In a recent interview, Monáe revealed that one of the roles she hopes to take on is the mutant superhero Storm of Marvel s X-Men, who has previously been played in film by both Halle Berry and Alexandra Shipp (in X-Men: Apocalypse). Monáe said she brought it up while talking to director Ryan Coogler (currently working on Black Panther II, scheduled for 5/6/2022). It s worth noting that Marvel Studios has not yet announced when any o御龙在天星宿幻境当作为LOL手游主播KS颜轩则表示不一样的看法，颜轩觉得在LOL手游国服上线之后，应该会迅速火起来，因为在其他外服的玩家都在期待国际比赛的来临，按照以前的国际惯例，能举行国际大型比赛的游戏都不会差的，从LOL和DOTA2就能看出来了.

Her choice of hired help is ironic, though, since Liam is familiar with her name.American Gods season 3 episode The Rapture of the Burning airs Sunday, March 7 at 8 p.m. on Starz.

5. HD 画质与高品质音讯
Japanese-style animation or anime is more popular than ever – and more accessible.In 2017, Sony Television has purchased popular anime streaming service Funimation and Amazon has folded its Anime Strike VOD service into Prime Video. Crunchyroll, one of the largest producers of anime content in the world, is now owned by AT T. And since 2018, Netflix has doubled down on its production of original anime content and launched @NX, a social media presence dedicated to its fantasy, genre, animation, and anime titles. Although many people are familiar with major anime titles, like Ghost in the Shell and Death Note, the sub-genre of horror anime has been growing in popularity. Horror anime is usually bloody, mildly suggestive, and almost always very creepy. The veneer of animation can make these works less terrifying than live-action horror movies, yet the best of the horror sub-genre often boasts incredible storylines as well as high-quality animation and voice acting. Curious? Here are nine anime horror series that you can stream just in time for Halloween.Tokyo Ghoul 100% What it is: This epic series is set in a world where ghouls – monsters that survive by eating human flesh – live on the outskirts of human society, secretly killing and feeding to survive. The series is the origin story of Ken Kaneki, a human teenager who becomes a half-ghoul after a transplant operation; he now has become his own worst nightmare and has to learn to navigate a world where neither side wants him.Why you should watch: Part horror, part existential think piece, Tokyo Ghoul offers one of the best character arcs since Daenerys Targaryen (and one that feels far less rushed).Episodes: 48Watch time: 19 hoursStreaming on: Hulu, FunimationJunji Ito Collection What it is: Junji Ito is regarded as the greatest horror mangaka ever. He is known for his freakishly detailed artwork and nightmare-inducing short stories, and this anthology series adapts several of his works for the small screen. Ito’s work is terrifying because it makes horror from the everyday: a girl gets sick at school and suddenly grows a giant slug out of her mouth, for example, and a murderous knife-wielding puppet controls an entire family. It’s freaky stuff. Why you should watch: The collection offers psychological thrills in small bites and an introduction to Ito’s work.Episodes: 14Watch time: 5.5 hoursStreaming on: Crunchyroll, Amazon Prime VideoDemon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba 100% What it is: In feudal Japan, a boy returns home to find his entire family viciously killed by a demon. The only survivor is his sister, who apparently has been turned, but still retains conscious human thought and cognizance — except when she’s hungry! The boy learns the ways of demon hunting in order to find a cure for his sister and to save others that are threatened by the demon horde.Why you should watch: Demon Slayer’s incredible animation makes it one of the most beloved anime series out right now.Episodes: 26Watch time: 10.5 hoursStreaming on: Crunchyroll, Hulu, FunimationParasyte: The Maxim What it is: Wormlike alien creatures invade Earth and begin body-snatching, turning their hosts into cannibalistic monsters. Their delivery method of choice? Drilling themselves into human flesh while potential hosts sleep and heading straight for the brain. However, Shinichi Izumi is unique, because he wakes up during an attack and stops the alien from burrowing through his body. The alien (now living in his hand), becomes sentient and begins communicating with him and together they save the world.Why you should watch: It’s the body-horror buddy cop anime you never knew you needed.Episodes: 24Watch time: 10 hoursStreaming on: HuluAnotherWhat it is: Kōichi Sakakibara transfers to a new school in a town where a young girl has died some 20 years prior. He soon meets Mei, a quiet girl with an eyepatch whom both the teachers and students seem to ignore. When students and relatives start dying in a variety of strange and bloody ways, the pair soon realize all the incidents are connected and try to get to the bottom of the mystery before anyone else gets killed.Why you should watch: It’s Final Destination, anime-style, and a lot of fun.Episodes: 12Watch time: 5 hoursStreaming on: CrunchyrollAjin: Demi-Human What it is: Kei Nagai is an aloof pre-med student who is hit by a truck and killed on his way to class one day. Moments later, his body resurrects and Kei realizes that he is Ajin, a demi-human with limitless regenerative powers. Those qualities have attracted government interest, which has been quietly experimenting and torturing Ajin in an effort to exploit their immortality. Kei is thrown into a world he never knew existed and must choose to fight for survival as a demi-human or fight for the entire human race.Why you should watch: Ajin gets the blood pumping with big scares and thrilling action, packing both into its intriguing central mystery. Episodes: 26Watch time: 10 hoursStreaming on: Netflix %What it is: Keiichi Maebara moves to a small rural town he quickly comes to love, but soon learns the village has a very dark secret. The series’ story is told in multiple arcs with a repeating timeline that differs based on who is telling the story. Don’t let the cuteness of the first episodes fool you – this series is so twisted it will leave you wondering if you ever learned the truth about any of the characters at all.Why you should watch: It’s a twisty psychological thriller with a lot of violence and blood, if that’s your thing. Episodes: 26Watch time: 10 hoursStreaming on: HuluNote: There are many versions and series called When they Cry. This is referring to the first anime series.Devilman Crybaby 89% What it is: Akira is your average sensitive teen who hasn’t seen his buddy Ryo since they were childhood besties. One day Ryo suddenly pops back into town and drags Akira to an underground rave orgy where he commences stabbing people. But that’s not the crazy part: The scent of blood makes some of the ravers transform into beasts themselves – including Akira, who becomes a human-demon hybrid. Convinced by Ryo that this is his true calling, Akira’s innate sensitivity transforms him into a rare breed: A demon with a human heart, or Devilman. That doesn’t make him any less violent, as his teenage desires and new body ratchet both his demon-hunting skills and his sex drive up to 1,000. Oh yeah, and he cries. A lot.Why you should watch: One of Netflix’s most violent and sexually explicit series ever produced. You’ll love the retro animation and over-the-top gore and violence. NSFW.Episodes: 10Watch time: 10 hoursStreaming on: NetflixHellsing Ultimate What it is: Integra Fairbrook Wingates Helsing is the new leader of the Helsing family. She commands the largest military fighting force dedicated to the eradication of the undead in England under Her Majesty the Queen. Her secret weapon is Alucard, a vampire who kills his own and his charge, a police officer named Seres. They all must fight the monsters of the night as well as the evil Nazi group Millenium, intent on destroying the world in this over-the-top vampire series.Why you should watch: If you like blood, gore and punching Nazis, you’ll be very happy.Episodes: 10Watch time: 8 hoursStreaming on: HuluLike this?

Just a week after the prestigious audiences and midnight crowds of Toronto International Film Festival, it s Austin s moment to shine as host to the weirdest and most fantastic week of the year. Unlike Austin s other big fest SXSW, which shows a varied program of indie dramas, big blockbuster movies and crowd-pleasing comedies, Fantastic Fest thrives on providing an audience with the best horror, sci-fi, action and plain bizarre movies from all around the world.Though the festival has held world premieres for big titles like There Will Be Blood, Zombieland, and Split, and this year prides itself for showing acclaimed films from other festivals like Parasite, Knives Out and Jojo Rabbit, what makes Fantastic Fest special is how it manages to find genre gems from every corner of the world. Some of the films take years before anyone is able to see them, and some become overnight successes after playing in the heat of the Texas capital.To help you plan your future watch-list of weird and unforgettable genre films, we’ve put together a list highlighting some of the genre movies that blew audiences and critics alike away at Fantastic Fest 2019, which ran September 19-26, and show genre movies can come in many forms.Butt Boy (2019) 71% Here it is. The weirdest, most bizarre movie of the year, and one that just screams Fantastic Fest. You probably already have an idea of what this movie is about based on the title, but Butt Boy is so much more than a gross-out comedy. Yes, it is a one-joke movie about a guy who becomes addicted to putting anything and everything up his butt, but it is also a near-homage to David Fincher, with director Tyler Cornack delivering a pulpy crime thriller involving a cat-and-mouse chase between a hardboiled detective and our titular Butt Boy. Critic Germain Lussier wrote for io9: “Butt Boy is a wholly entertaining and engaging film that dashes expectations at every single step. By the end, you may even shed a tear and absolutely won t judge a movie by its title ever again.”No release date has been announced yet. Sweetheart (2019) 95% A bit of an anti-Shape of Water, J.D. Dillard’s sophomore feature is a terrifying and monstrous survival story of a woman stranded on an island. Think Cast Away, but instead of a volleyball our protagonist’s only companion is a man-eating sea monster. The survival aspect of the movie allows breakout performer Kiersey Clemons to give us full gritty determination in a largely mute role, while the sea monster element allows for impressive creature design and terrifying and bloody confrontations. “One woman, one gilled foe, one gorgeous escape ploy that rations tension as to sustain all 90-ish minutes,” wrote /Film’s critic Matt Donato, and critics agree that the film’s fast pace, creature design and terrific performances make for an entertaining and engrossing aquatic thriller.Universal will release Sweetheart digitally on October 22.
御龙在天星宿幻境 Does February have you feeling lonely with its upcoming card-company holiday? Trust us when we say that Better Call Saul’s Saul Goodman, Kidding’s Mr. Pickles, Homeland’s Carrie Mathison, or Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Jake Piralta go down as easy as a box of chocolates. Or if you’re more into beards and other kinds of treats, High Maintenance’s delivery guy might be more your speed. Regardless, this month has 10 returning series worth your time and your bingeing. Manhunt 96% (Spectrum Originals)What it is: When it first premiered on Discovery in 2017, creators Andrew Sodroski, Jim Clemente, and Tony Gittelson’s Manhunt promised a factual, fuss-free deep-dive on the FBI’s investigation and ongoing search for the terrorist Ted Kaczynski (a.k.a. the Unabomber). What we got was absolutely engrossing cat-and-mouse action with little-known, truth-is-stranger-than-fiction twists along the way.Why you should watch it: Having switched from Discovery to Spectrum Originals’ streaming platform, the new installment of Manhunt again follows the FBI, this time as they search for the bomber behind the 1996 Atlanta Olympics attack and deal with the notorious controversy surrounding security guard Richard Jewell that followed. (Clint Eastwood s 2019 feature film Richard Jewell dealt with the same topic.) Season 2 premieres on February 3 on Spectrum.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, Microsoft, Netflix, VuduCommitment: Approx. 6 hours (for the first season)Brooklyn Nine-Nine 95% (NBC)What it is: This hit comedy series from creators Dan Goor and Michael Schur is a workplace sitcom featuring some very distinct personalities — the aloof and gregarious Detective Jake Peralta (Saturday Night Live alum Andy Samberg), his fictional precinct’s dry commanding officer, Captain Ray Holt (Andre Braugher), and the rest of the motley crew of the Nine-Nine.Why you should watch it: We’ve seen fan-initiated primetime resuscitations before, but rarely do they happen as swiftly as Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s after its unceremonious cancellation at Fox. The online outcry had barely begun before Universal Television began shopping the sitcom around, and it was scooped up by NBC just a day later — with good reason. Now that we’re a season into that “reboot,” it’s clear the series should’ve never left in the first place. Season 7 premieres on February 6 on NBC.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, Microsoft, VuduCommitment: Approx. 47 hours (for the first six seasons)The Sinner 90% (USA Network)What it is: This anthological crime thriller from creator and showrunner Derek Simonds (and executive producer Jessica Biel, who starred on season 1 and earned her first Emmy nomination for the performance) takes the traditional whodunit thriller and turns it on its head into a whydunit. We know the titular culprit from the get, but there are unknown layers as to why they committed the central crime. The series has been a huge hit for USA Network and follows different crimes each season. Detective Harry Ambrose (Bill Pullman) is the thread that holds them all together. Why you should watch it: The Sinner is a spin on a classic trope, and it’s executed with top-notch acting, production, and nail-biting scripts. What’s not to love? Season 3 follows Matt Bomer and Chris Messina as college buddies with a dark, secretive past. A fatal tragedy upon their reunion brings Ambrose on the case. Catch up before its February 6 premiere.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, Microsoft, Netflix, VuduCommitment: Approx. 12 hours (for the first two seasons)High Maintenance 98% (HBO)What it is: From co-creators Katja Blichfeld and Ben Sinclair, High Maintenance began as a hit web series starring Sinclair as a traveling weed deliveryman living in New York City. HBO picked it up to series in 2016 and largely retained the comedy’s original format while simply making its episodes longer.Why you should watch it: While there are plenty of primetime programs that paint a great snippet of present-day NYC, few get the full picture the way High Maintenance does. That’s because each episode features various characters who — whether they’re hosting a swingers party, rebelling against their ultra-religious parents, or sitting home alone collecting cans of La Croix — are from such disparate walks of life that they end up inadvertently highlighting the similarities between so many dwellers of the concrete jungle. (And we promise those similarities go beyond enjoying the green.) Season 4 premieres on February 7 on HBO.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, HBO Now, Microsoft, VuduCommitment: Approx. 12.5 hours (for the first three seasons)Homeland 85% (Showtime)What it is: Homeland has gone a lot of places — some better than others — over the course of its twisty seven seasons, but it all started with the Emmy-winning combination of Sgt. Nicholas Brody (Damian Lewis) and CIA agent Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes). The former has just returned from Iraq after being missing in action; the latter suspects that his allegiances have been turned to the enemy. Let the cat-and-mouse games begin.Why you should watch it: Homeland — led by a career-best Danes as an agent with bipolar disorder — is a masterclass in taut, edge-of-your-seat spy drama. Even when the series goes off the deep end, Danes has you simultaneously rooting for her and holding your breath. Season 8 premieres on February 9 on Showtime.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNow, Google Play, Microsoft, VuduCommitment: Approx. 60 hours (for the first seven seasons)Kidding 88% (Showtime)What it is: Kidding follows a Mr. Rogers–esque children’s show host named Mr. Pickles through a divorce and into a downward, existential spiral. But at its heart, it’s just about a kindhearted guy trying to find himself while piecing his life back together.Why you should watch it: Something about filmmaker Michel Gondry and star Jim Carrey’s creative relationship sparks magic; Kidding doesn’t just mark a grand reunion of the two artists after 15 years, but it features Carrey’s best dramatically-tinged performance since their shared Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. Add in the auteur’s trademark visual flare, and Kidding will win just about anyone over. Season 2 premieres February 9 on Showtime.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNow, Google Play, MicrosoftCommitment: Approx. 5 hours (for the first season)Narcos 89% and Narcos: Mexico 85% (Netflix)What it is: Critically-acclaimed Spanish- and English-language Netflix original started with Narcos, taking a closer look at formidable and feared Columbian drug lord Pablo Escobar (played by Wagner Moura) and his criminal contemporaries. In 2018, Netflix launched companion series Narcos: Mexico – originally intended as season 4 of the original show – which dove into the roots of the modern drug war and the true-story rise of the cocaine trade led by the Guadalajara cartel in the 1980s. Why you should watch it: The Narcos franchise is riveting and entertaining television, boasting fine performances and equally engaging scripts — not to mention a little-seen precision in documenting the history of the drug trade that still plagues the world today. In the Mexico seasons, Michael Peña stars as DEA agent Kiki Camarena alongside Diego Luna as cartel leader Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo. Narcos: Mexico season 2 premieres February 13 on Netflix.Where to watch: NetflixCommitment: Approx. 35 hours (25.8 for three seasons of Narcos and 8.5 hours for season 1 of Narcos: Mexico)Outlander 89% (Starz)What it is: Based on the hit fantasy novel series from author Diana Gabaldon, Outlander is the story of World War II nurse Claire (Caitriona Balfe), who is inexplicably transported back in time to 18th-century Scotland and quickly swept up in the drama and romance of Highland warrior Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) — despite being a married woman in her own time to Frank (Tobias Menzies).Why you should watch it: There’s little to dislike about this lavish Starz series. Expertly-crafted performances and, ahem, titillating character arcs have consumed audiences in the kind of “who will she choose” debate unseen since Twi-hards of yore. This series, from Battlestar Galactica reboot mastermind Ronald D. Moore, has the scripts, direction, and overall production value worth fawning over, too. Season 5 premieres on February 16 on Starz.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, Microsoft, Netflix, VuduCommitment: Approx. 55 hours (for the first four seasons)Better Call Saul 98% (AMC)What it is: Ever wonder how, exactly, Breaking Bad’s Saul Goodman got to be so darn slimy? AMC’s acclaimed spin-off, Better Call Saul, is here to help. The companion series satisfyingly builds on the original Vince Gilligan drama, while also coherently etching an identity of its own for viewers of all proclivities.Why you should watch it: The series takes a character we think we know — the Saul Goodman whom Breaking Bad’s Walter White eventually meets in that Albuquerque, New Mexico, strip mall — and breaks him down to his nuts and bolts, starting at Jimmy McGill. Played wonderfully by Bob Odenkirk in what could become his career-defining (certainly career-changing) role, Saul/Jimmy and his uneasy partnership with Jonathan Banks’ Mike Ehrmantraut make for must-watch hours for any lover of prestige TV, Breaking Bad die-hard or not. Season 5 premieres on February 23 on AMC.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, Microsoft, Netflix, VuduCommitment: Approx. 32 hours (for the first four seasons)Altered Carbon 75% (Netflix)What it is: Altered Carbon is a sci-fi epic for our time: it s often brutal and sometimes confusing. Set in a distant dystopian future in which an individual’s consciousness can be downloaded and stored digitally to be later uploaded into a new body, otherwise known as a “sleeve, life and death have little meaning in this world. But this advancement in technology allows only an elite and wealthy few to actually live their lives for hundreds of years, while those less fortunate only degrade, descending further and further into destitution.Why you should watch it: This Netflix adaptation of Richard K. Morgan’s acclaimed 2002 novel from creator Laeta Kalogridis received mixed reviews upon its 2018 premiere, but was a hit with genre fans new and old alike. While Joel Kinnaman was absolutely killer as the latest incarnation of the mysterious time-jumping hero Takeshi Kovacs, these new episodes give Takeshi Kovacs a new sleeve: Anthony Mackie. Season 2 premieres on February 27 on Netflix.Where to watch: NetflixCommitment: Approx. 8.5 hours (for the first season)Babylon Berlin (Netflix)What it is: A sexy look at a turbulent time, Babylon Berlin is a crime drama that unfolds during the Weimar Republic, a time of great transition and facing the rise of National Socialism. Party girl Greta (Liv Lisa Fries) pairs up with police detective Gereon Rath (Volker Bruch) when he uncovers and investigates an underground porn ring.Why you should watch it: Netflix brought the first two seasons of the lavish German series to U.S. audiences in 2017. Together, the seasons are Certified Fresh at 100% for painting a head-spinning tableau of corruption, drug dealing, and weapons trafficking that tests the young inspector s sense of loyalty and dedication to the truth.

御龙在天星宿幻境 Everyone is talking about Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom for one reason above all: the Netflix Original features the final performance by Chadwick Boseman, who shockingly died of cancer over the summer. And as the first reviews arrive for the biographical drama, based on August Wilson’s 1982 play of the same name, Boseman continues to receive the majority of attention, mostly in the form of praise for his last work. But there are other reasons to look forward to the movie, including Viola Davis’ performance as the titular “Mother of the Blues” as well as Wilson’s powerful writing and some unforgettable moments as directed by George C. Wolfe.Here’s what critics are saying about Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom:Let’s get right to it: How is Boseman’s final performance?Boseman is a revelation. Fionnuala Halligan, Screen InternationalOn a whole other level here… Watching him in this film is an absolutely hypnotic experience. Joey Magidson, Awards RadarBoseman’s performance really is the stuff of acting legend…[he] will make you feel like screen actors rarely are able to do. J. Don Birnam, Splash ReportThe confidence and composure of the icons he has played before has melted away into a kind of nervous insecurity we’ve never seen in the actor. Peter Debruge, VarietyThere are times where you have to remind yourself to breathe watching his performance. Matt Goldberg, ColliderMa Rainey is a hilarious film, and Boseman, through his coy smile, and displaying his full range, is equally hilarious in it. Robert Daniels, IGN MoviesWhat a glorious performance to go out on. Peter Bradshaw, GuardianIt’s no stretch to say his last performance may be his finest. Odie Henderson, RogerEbert.com(Photo by David Lee/Netflix)Does Boseman’s death cast a shadow over the achievement?We should have been just getting started with him. Sadly, this will have to stand as the crowning performance of his career. Joey Magidson, Awards RadarChadwick Boseman s astonishingly dynamic and charismatic performance reminds us of a promising future that can no longer come to pass. I can hardly think of a more fitting final act for his career than this. Shane Slater, Film ActuallyIt’s an Oscar-worthy performance in what should have been a long career filled with Oscars. Matt Goldberg, ColliderMa Rainey’s Black Bottom is such a difficult movie to watch. While watching, it’s impossible not to face facts: this is it… turns out Boseman did have one last gift for us. Mike Ryan, UproxxBoseman would cast a huge shadow over the film even if he hadn’t tragically passed away earlier this year at the age of 43. Alonso Duralde, The WrapEven if Boseman were alive, his name would still certainly be on the shortlist for an Oscar nomination. Gabriella Geisinger, Digital SpyHow is Viola Davis?Davis as the titular Ma Rainey gives one of the performances of her career. Gabriella Geisinger, Digital SpyIt is one of the best performances of Davis’ career — a career already filled with many such depictions. J. Don Birnam, Splash ReportThe most engrossing, inspired transformation of her career. Eric Kohn, IndieWireHer performance is both otherworldly and all too human. Oliver Jones, ObserverIt’s a delectably grand performance. Odie Henderson, RogerEbert.comAs Ma Rainey, Davis confirms how wide-ranging her talent is. Fionnuala Halligan, Screen InternationalRyan FujitaniIs the rest of the cast good?The supporting cast deserves acclaim for their work. Matt Goldberg, ColliderWhile Boseman and Davis are the stars, don’t sleep on Colman Domingo and Glynn Turman, who are excellent in their supporting parts. Joey Magidson, Awards RadarDomingo gives the character a quiet authority that is essential to the band dynamic and elevates not just Boseman but Davis performance as well. Jason Guerrasio, InsiderMuch will be made of Boseman and Davis’ work here, but Turman’s excellent work is also worthy of notice. Odie Henderson, RogerEbert.comThe great Glynn Turman. This is the supporting performance that will get the awards attention… This is Turman’s moment even more than it is Boseman’s. Roger Friedman, Showbiz 411How is the film as an adaptation?You can feel the full force of Wilson’s play barrel down from the stage and into your living room. Oliver Jones, ObserverThis Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom feels not just adapted but accelerated, as if it were racing to meet the deadline its own characters keep putting off. Justin Chang, Los Angeles TimesRuben Santiago-Hudson, who adapted the play for the screen, honors Wilson’s eloquent and vernacular dialogue, which includes moments of wit. Caryn James, BBC.comTaking a play and turning it into a film has inherent challenges… The ability it shows to overcome that potential challenge makes it a superior work to the already well done Fences. Joey Magidson, Awards RadarWolfe and screenwriter Ruben Santiago-Hudson have put the play into the movie, rather than vice versa. Eric Kohn, IndieWire(Photo by David Lee/Netflix)Does it transcend its stage play origins?Ma Rainey feels fresh as a film. Fionnuala Halligan, Screen InternationalWhile you can feel the stage origins, over time, that stuff kind of dissipates when the performances are so good. Matt Goldberg, ColliderThere is a static quality to some of the back and forth, but… the contained staginess of the movie comes off as welcome, intimate and, in the hands of these boldly empathetic performers, quite thrilling. Oliver Jones, Observer[Santiago-Hudson] and Wolfe do what they can to open up the play but the movie still remains, in a good way, stagey. There’s no way around it. Roger Friedman, Showbiz 411The characters move through space as if they were blocked for the stage, and it s slightly distracting to watch. Gabriella Geisinger, Digital SpyWilson’s dialogue is very written sounding, very theatrical, and it almost feels like the entire ensemble are acting on a podium rather than attempting to deliver a legitimate feature film. Jordan Ruimy, World of ReelHow does the film look?Right away, it was hard not to notice how striking the imagery of this film is throughout. Aaron Neuwirth, We Live EntertainmentTobias Schilesser, who typically shoots action or showy movies alongside the likes of Peter Berg and Bill Condon, delivers a radiant cinematography. J. Don Birnam, Splash ReportTobias A. Schliesser’s vibrant cinematography works wonders in up close, but has a flatter quality in some of the interstitial moments between the big set pieces. Eric Kohn, IndieWire(Photo by David Lee/Netflix)Are there any criticisms?Despite being the titular character, Ma Rainey doesn’t feel like the protagonist, which is disappointing given that this film provides a rare look into Black American queer history. Flora Spencer Grant, Little White LiesThe film lacks a definitive center to ground its strengths… [It] gets so caught up in its busy dialogue-driven sequences that the purpose behind them can often feel quite thin. Matt Conway, Battle Royale With CheeseThe film sometimes fails to keep your attention, to keep you engaged in the act of watching. Gabriella Geisinger, Digital SpyDoes it feel timely?Even though Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom is set over 90 years ago, it feels unsettlingly timely in the way that all historical films which deal with racism will until these issues are meaningfully addressed. Flora Spencer Grant, Little White LiesIt’s a story of Black lives and Black music in the early 20th century that has lost little of its significance in the 21st. Justin Chang, Los Angeles TimesNavigating an entertainment system that’s rigged against people of colour, ownership over one’s art, and knowing your worth are all things that Black artists still grapple with today. Amon Warmann, Empire Magazine(Photo by David Lee/Netflix)How is the ending?Wilson does not write happy plays, and this one ends on a note that sounds like the weary sigh on a sad trombone. Peter Debruge, VarietyIf you feel a sorrowful pit in your stomach at the conclusion of the proceedings, you will have Boseman’s characterization of Wilson’s heartbreaking character to thank for it. J. Don Birnam, Splash ReportThe climactic act of violence has been staged in oddly stilted terms, though the emotion resonates because of its wider context… [It’s] one of the great cinematic moments of the year.
