亚博APP安卓版采用百度引擎3（Baidu 1）Despite having the lowest Tomatometer score (74%) of the Wizarding World (aka Harry Potter) franchise, spinoff prequel Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is still Certified Fresh and the brand has maintained a positive 83% average. Unfortunately, that’s about to take a dip if the first reviews of the sequel Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald are any indication.With a mixed 55% score out of the gate, the new movie is said to be too convoluted, with too many characters, and all in service of the next movie rather than the installment at hand. Still, if you’re a fan of the franchise, you should be satisfied with all the usual magic, as well as the return of a Professor Dumbledore in younger form.Here’s what critics are saying about the movie:How does it compare to the previous film?A huge step up from the middling Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Caryn James, Hollywood ReporterRowling has improved upon the first Fantastic Beasts film by fleshing out her characters in a way that’s engaging. David Griffin, IGNThe Crimes of Grindelwald takes the first installment and improves upon it tenfold. Ashley Menzel, We Live EntertainmentSo far, so good but there’s a counterpoint?It’s less a necessary new chapter in this ongoing story than… an affordable multiplex alternative to whisking the whole family off to the Wizarding World area of Universal Studios. A.A. Dowd, AV ClubAs it turns out, the true crime of Grindelwald was wasting the audience’s time. Karen Han, Polygon[It’s] the noisiest, most rhythmless, and least coherent entry in the Wizarding World saga since Alfonso Cuarón first gave the franchise its sea legs in 2004. Andrew Barker, VarietyWhat always made the Harry Potter films so entrancing was its wonder. But that wonder, once portrayed through the eyes of children, is nowhere to be found. Robert Daniels, 812filmreviews(Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures)How is the magical spectacle?There s nothing particularly impressive about the CGI feats in the film run-of-the-mill where modern blockbusters are concerned. Karen Han, PolygonMore so than even the last film…The Crimes of Grindelwald has tons of incredible magic effects, dazzling new sets, and adorable (and terrifying) new beasts. Germain Lussier, io9So the beasts are still fantastic?The beasts are the best thing about the movie. Karen Han, PolygonMostly, I got the sense that the creators regretted saddling themselves with the animal theme. Angie Han, MashableBut is there too much going on?The Crimes of Grindelwald throws an awful lot at the screen during this clotted two-hour-plus diversion. Manohla Dargis, New York TimesThere are a lot of moving parts in this film, and too many of them are moving without purpose. Tasha Robinson, The VerveRowling has included so many different characters and sub-plots that the narrative momentum is sometimes lost. Geoffrey Macnab, The IndependentThe Crimes of Grindelwald probably had enough plot to drive a four-hour mini-series. William Bibbiani, The Wrap(Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures)Does it move the franchise forward? At almost every turn, it weaves in broad strokes created only to set up the next movie… The Crimes of Grindelwald doesn’t care about the movie you are watching. Germain Lussier, io9Just like the first one, it still feels like set-up for bigger pay-offs down the line, without the satisfying cliffhanger qualities of, say, The Empire Strikes Back. Ian Freer, Empire MagazineWill we enjoy the familiar characters?Our returning heroes feel less familiar than they did when they were introduced in the last film, thanks to a rash of baffling decisions. Angie Han, MashableWhen [Newt] is allowed to lead this second story, it’s as whimsical and good-hearted as any in the franchise. Kate Erbland, IndieWireNewt remains one of the most distinctive heroes in blockbuster cinema. William Bibbiani, The WrapThe best of the bunch, once again, is the illicit muggle-mage coupling of Jacob and Queenie, who burst into the film’s early stages like an enchanted Tim Curry and Bernadette Peters. Andrew Barker, VarietyQueenie and Jacob often seem to be starring in a different, potentially more interesting movie. Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times(Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures)Are there any great newcomers?Of the newer characters, the only real standout is Leta Lestrange, played by the effortlessly compelling Zoe Kravitz. Angie Han, MashableZoë Kravitz as Leta is pretty fantastic and I love where they go with her character in the film. Ashley Menzel, We Live EntertainmentHow is Jude Law as Dumbledore?Jude Law captures the quick wit, easy charm and cloying inscrutability of the character. William Bibbiani, The WrapWisely, Law doesn’t try to channel Michael Gambon or Richard Harris… he gives the character the calm, warmth and understanding that has made him such a beloved figure. Caryn James, Hollywood ReporterIs Johnny Depp a problem?For all of the controversy surrounding Johnny Depp s casting, it s strange just how underutilized he is. Eric Eisenberg, Cinema BlendDepp is also supremely average as Grindewald. He simply mails it in. Robert Daniels, 812filmreviewsJohnny Depp is instantly captivating as the titular villain and damn creepy, too. David Griffin, IGNHis portrayal of Grindelwald rekindles memories of his old mentor, Vincent Price. Geoffrey Macnab, The IndependentJohnny Depp is fine, if you can forget about his ugly personal life. Angie Han, MashableRyan FujitaniIs this movie just for the fans?It s a movie built special for aficionados of the Wizarding World. Eric Eisenberg, Cinema BlendIt’s hard to imagine anyone but hardcore Potterheads getting emotionally involved in this film’s convoluted plotting and ancestral reveals. Tasha Robinson, The VerveRowling seems to be playing to the fans in the thinnest way possible, building in stories that require foreknowledge to appreciate them fully. Kate Erbland, IndieWireThe Crimes of Grindelwald is enough to make J.K. Rowling fans weep in frustration, provided they can even keep their eyes open. Justin Chang, Los Angeles TimesWill we walk out anticipating part three?The twisty plot leads to an explosive climax…including a jaw-dropper for the Potter faithful that’ll have them clamoring for the threequel. Brian Truitt, USA TodayThe Crimes of Grindelwald is rich and intriguing fare that will leave viewers impatient for the next sequel. Geoffrey Macnab, The IndependentIt’s hard not to worry about the franchise heading in a similar direction. Andrew Barker, VarietyFantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald opens everywhere on Friday, November 16. Read all the reviews for it here.

But even when Pratt did break into the movies, his early filmography was mostly littered with secondary roles in comedies like Bride Wars, Jennifer s Body, and Take Me Home Tonight. But Pratt is one to take things on the chin literally, as he did in Wanted.It was his role as Andy in NBC s Parks and Recreation that gave him stability and steady visibility. The stars aligned for a legendary 2014 where he helped make two of the unlikeliest movies connect with audiences and critics: a space opera featuring talking trees and raccoons, and an emotionally affecting movie about sentient toy blocks. Pratt s involvment with Marvel, LEGO, and then later the Jurassic franchise means he has your childhood pop culture and nostalgia under lock, and his role in Pixar s Onward has the potential to become a sentimental favorite for a new generation.

亚博APP安卓版 King of the Crop: Glass Has Third-Best Holiday Weekend, But May Have A Ceiling(Photo by @ Universal Pictures)With an estimated take of million over the four-day MLK holiday, Glass just missed besting the .6 million that Ride Along made on the same weekend back in 2014. (American Sniper is still the highest grosser over this weekend with 7.2 million in 2015.) How does the Glass opening compare to the director s other hits? Shyamalan’s Signs opened to .1 million in 2002; The Village opened with .7 million two years later. The audience response to that film – a final gross just 2.25 times its opening – appeared to be the beginning of the decline for the filmmaker once dubbed “the next Spielberg.” Total grosses continued to fall with Lady in the Water (.2 million) and The Happening (.5 million). Big-budget bombs like The Last Airbender and After Earth came next, and it looked like it might be over the man friends call Night. Enter Blumhouse Productions.Working with smaller budgets seemed to give Shyamalan new life. After The Visit was a moderate hit, he had one of the biggest financial successes of his career with Split, which made almost 0 million globally and cost just million to make. Given anticipation for Glass, it felt certain it would beat Split s Friday-to-Sunday opening back in 2017, and it did, but only by 5,025 with Sunday totals boosted by the holiday. By all accounts Glass should become just the sixth true January opener ever to reach 0 million (the other 14 films to earn over 0 million from a January launch either began limited runs in December or were a special edition of Star Wars.) The film may still be able to pull a three-week run atop the box office, but those weekend-winning numbers could be in the low teens by then – and poor reviews won t help (the movie is at 36% on the Tomatometer). If Miss Bala somehow manages to beat it on February 1, it may be a sign that fans are starting to turn on the filmmaker again. If The Kid Who Would Be King can somehow get over million, it could be taken down this coming weekend.Fresh Surprise: Dragon Ball Has a Super Six Days(Photo by @ FUNimation/ courtesy Everett Collection)FUNimation is one of the premier distributors of anime on the home entertainment market, but it has had some notable theatrical releases over the past four years, like Shin Godzilla (85%) and Your Name (97%), which have caught the attention of critics as well. This week they can celebrate their biggest box office success to date: Dragon Ball Super: Broly opened on Wednesday with .04 million in just 1,440 theaters (including 180 IMAX venues). No only is that more than Unbreakable made on its opening Wednesday before Thanksgiving (.8 million), but only three films since 2000 have begun their run in 1,400-1,500 theaters and grossed over million. And they did it in a weekend. They were Tyler Perry’s Diary of a Mad Black Woman (.9 million), Breach (.5 million), and Nurse Betty (.14 million). Broly added .7 million over the three-day weekend and an estimated .4 million over the holiday for a total of .9 million. FUNimation’s highest-grossing film before this weekend was Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F which made just over million total in 2015.The Rest of the Top 10 and Beyond: More Milestones Crossed for Aquaman and Bohemian Rhapsody(Photo by @ Warner Bros. Pictures)Last week’s no. 1 film, The Upside, is turning into a real story for STX Films. With just a 26% drop this weekend, plus nothing on the hook besides its advertising and whatever was spent to pry it away from Harvey Weinstein, the film is headed towards being their second biggest success after Bad Moms.Aquaman passed the 0 million mark domestically this weekend but, more importantly, is now the 27th all-time earner worldwide and is poised to be the highest-grossing film based on a DC property ever when it passes The Dark Knight Rises. Over on the Marvel side, Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse has also crossed the 0 million line worldwide. It has also leapfrogged Mary Poppins Returns in domestic dollars, which also just crossed the global 0 million threshold. Bumblebee is besting both of them on that front with over 3 million, which is still 7 million less than Transformers: The Last Knight (though it still has a shot to beat that film’s domestic total).Finally, this week Bohemian Rhapsody will be passing two huge and unexpected milestones: The movie reached 0 million here at home this weekend and later this week it will hit 0 million worldwide. That makes it the seventh highest-grossing film of 2018 behind four comic book films and two sequels. An extraordinary accomplishment ahead of likely Oscar nominations this Tuesday.This Time Last Year: Battle of the Brawn(Photo by David James /© Warner Bros. Pictures )It was all about the machismo last year as military actioner 12 Strong narrowly defeated cops-and-robbers film Den of Thieves .8 million to .2 million among the weekend s newcomers. Neither number was strong enough to beat Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle which held onto the no. 1 spot for a third straight week as it crossed the 0 million mark. On the same weekend, Star Wars: The Last Jedi was passing 0 million, Coco got over 0 million, and Pitch Perfect 3 reached 0 million. The young-adult drama, Forever My Girl, barely made the top 10 with .2 million. The top 10 films last year grossed 4.1 million and averaged 61.7% on the Tomatometer. This year’s top 10 grossed an estimated 9.7 million from Friday-to-Sunday and averaged 66.7%.On the Vine: The Kid Who Would Be King Not Likely to Take the Throne(Photo by Kerry Brown / © 2018 Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation.)Attack the Block director Joe Cornish returns to theaters for the first time in eight years with The Kid Who Would Be King, a new riff on the Arthurian legend that is currently at a healthy 87% on the Tomatometer. Locke director Steven Knight returns after six years with the mysterious noir, Serenity, with Interstellar co-stars Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway. Neither are expected to challenge Glass during its second weekend.The Full Top 10: January 18-21Glass (2019) 36% – million ( million total)The Upside (2017) 43% – .35 (.66 million total)Aquaman (2018) 65% – .57 million (6.58 million total)Dragon Ball Super: Broly (2018) 82% – .49 million (.49 million total)Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) 97% – .75 million (0.75 million total)A Dog's Way Home (2019) 59% – .64 million (.8 million total)Escape Room (2019) 51% – .75 million (.18 million total)Mary Poppins Returns (2018) 80% – .74 (0.22 million total)Bumblebee (2018) 90% – .83 million (7.11 million total)On the Basis of Sex (2018) 72% – .65 million (.56 million total)
(Photo by © Warner Bros. )Was Jim Carrey’s 1994 the single best year for a relative newcomer to the big screen ever? Or was it just the single best year for any actor – period? Consider that in this 12-month span, the In Living Color star appeared in three movies that were smash hits at the time and have gone on to become comedy classics: The Mask, Dumb Dumber, and Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. Each would spawn catchphrases, sequels, and remain in the pop culture conversation almost three decades on, but only one stands out from the otherwise-Fresh pack for earning itself a big green splat on our Tomatometer.That film is Ave Ventura, which featured arguably Jim Carrey’s most Jim Carrey performance, a fact that split critics almost evenly – the movie is Rotten at 49% – between those who were repelled by his rubber-faced gonzo efforts and those who felt Carrey was the best thing about this sophomoric story of a stolen football mascot and the quest to track it down. (Still, reviews were kinder to the 1994 movie than they were to its sequel, released just a year later: Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls was slapped with a Rotten Tomatometer score of just 25%.)Were the critics talking out of their… ahem, asses? Or are these widely beloved films genuine loooooosers when we take a clear-eyed look back at them? That’s what we’re asking in the latest episode of our podcast, Rotten Tomatoes Is Wrong (A Podcast from Rotten Tomatoes), in which we tackle two movies for the first time ever: Ace Ventura and its bigger-budget, higher-concept, maybe-funnier(?) sequel. With all that film to tackle, we had to bring in the big guns, and this week joining our hosts Mark Ellis and Jacqueline Coley is stand-up comedian, actor, and director of the new – Fresh! – film, The Opening Act, Steve Byrne. In the ep, they talk about the epic talent of Jim Carrey, the challenge of comedy that doesn’t always age well – yes, we get into the problematic stuff here – and whether comedy sequels are inherently cursed. All in the quest to answer that question we ask every week: Was Rotten Tomatoes wrong?
