Comic-Con 2019 Cosplay Gallery Comic-Con is celebrating its 50th birthday: See who came dressed for the occasion! by RT Staff | July 20, 2019 | Comments 因此，它的当务之急已经不是如何做出差异化亮点，而更是要重新思考——如何能让不朽更切入手游碎片化游戏时间的需求。否则恐怕在正式上线之后，这款正版的暗黑手游更是会陷入“老粉宁愿回去玩端游、新玩家宁玩同类产品”的这种何去何从的困局。
(Photo by @ Twentieth Century Fox)With the 91st Academy Awards around the corner, we ve been wondering whether first-time nominees or veterans who’ve already won an Oscar – or been nominated – have a better chance of winning. With only four of the 20 nominated actors walking away with an Oscar on Sunday, we wanted to know how the five former winners, six prior nominees, and nine first-time nominees who make up the group of 20 will fair – according to Oscar trends. And so we dove into the data to see if there were any patterns suggesting that vets are favored over newcomers, and vice versa, and applied that to this year s nominees. To keep the data current, we decided to focus on recent nominees and winners, beginning with the 73rd Academy Awards in 2001. What we found could be crucial info when filling out your Oscar ballot.(We did go a little further, analyzing the four Academy Award acting categories going back to 1929 and discovered that 1,700 nominations have gone out to only 928 actors. Further, 364 Academy Awards have been won by just 298 actors. Multiple awards have been won by 41 actors, and 257 have only won once. That seems to tell us that, historically, the awards favor first-time winners and it’s more difficult to be a repeat winner with so much competition.)Here are some key takeaways about the 72 Acting Oscars awarded and the 360 nominations since the 73rd Academy Awards in 2001.36 Oscars have been won by actors who’d already won an Oscar or been nominated36 Oscars have been won by first-time nominees218 nominations have been given to prior winners or nominees142 nominations have been given to first-time nominees4 Actors have won multiple Oscars between 2001-2018: Cate Blanchett (2005, 2014), Sean Penn (2004, 2009), Daniel Day-Lewis (2008, 2013), Christoph Waltz (2010, 2013)5 Actors who won Oscars prior to 2001, won their second or third Oscars since 2001: Meryl Streep (1980, 1983, 2012), Denzel Washington (1990, 2002), Hilary Swank (2000, 2005), Frances McDormand (1997, 2018), Daniel Day-Lewis (1990, 2008, 2013)68 Actors have won OscarsSo what does this data tell us about who might win this year?Best Actress: Veteran Nominees – if not winners – Dominate(Photo by @ Warner Bros. )Nominees since 2001: 26 prior Oscars winners, 30 prior nominees (with no wins), and 34 first-time nominees.Winners since 2001: 4 Oscar winners, 8 prior nominees, and 6 first-time nominees.Nominated in 2019: 2 prior nominees (with no wins), and 3 first-time nominees.Glenn Close: The Wife – 6 prior nominations for The World According to Garp (1982), The Big Chill (1983), The Natural (1984), Fatal Attraction (1984), Dangerous Liaisons (1988), Albert Nobbs (2011)Melissa McCarthy: Can You Ever Forgive Me? – 1 prior nomination for Bridesmaids (2011)Lady Gaga: A Star is Born – No prior nominationsYalitza Aparicio: Roma – No prior nominationsOlivia Colman: The Favourite – No prior nominationsBased on recent trends, the advantage in this category goes to seven-time nominee Glenn Close (The Wife) and the twice-nominated Melissa McCarthy (Can You Ever Forgive Me?). Why? Seven of the last eight winning actresses had been nominated at least twice before winning, and prior nominees in the Best Actress category have the best chance to win (8 winners out of 30 nominations, or 26.6%) among the four acting categories. Also, no Oscar-winning actresses were nominated in 2019; in years when no Oscar winners were nominated (2003, 2008), the Oscar has gone to actresses with prior nominations.Another factor is that since 1927, only Shirley Booth (Come Back, Little Sheba), Julie Andrews (Mary Poppins), Barbra Streisand (Funny Girl), and Marlee Matlin (Children of a Lesser God) have won a Best Actress Oscar for their first starring roles. This hurts the odds of Lady Gaga (A Star is Born) and Yalitza Aparicio (Roma) winning because of their newcomer status.Who has the advantage? We’re guessing the seven-time nominated Glenn Close will follow in the footsteps of Julia Roberts, Helen Mirren, Kate Winslet, and Julianne Moore who had at least three nominations and zero wins when they picked up their Oscars.Best Actor: The Odds Are Split, But It Helps to Play a Real-Life Character(Photo by @ 20th Century Fox)Nominees since 2001: 24 prior Oscars winners, 34 prior nominees (with no wins), and 32 first-time nominees.Winners since 2001: 3 Oscar winners, 8 prior nominees, and 7 first-time nominees.Nominated in 2019: 1 Oscar Winner, 3 prior nominees (with no wins), and 1 first-time nominee.Christian Bale: Vice – 1 Oscar win for The Fighter (2011) and two nominations for American Hustle (2014), and The Big Short (2016)Bradley Cooper: A Star is Born – 3 prior nominations for Silver Linings Playbook (2013), American Hustle (2014), and American Sniper (2015)Willem Dafoe: At Eternity’s Gate – 3 prior nominations for Platoon (1987), Shadow of the Vampire (2001), and The Florida Project (2018)Viggo Mortensen: Green Book – 2 prior nominations for Eastern龙之谷学者技能(Photo by Columbia Pictures / courtesy Everett Collection)All Spider-Man Movies Ranked (Including Venom)Spider-Man swung into theaters in 2002, cementing Marvel Comics as a viable player in the superhero movie arena, which had been dominated by DC with Superman and Batman. And though 2000 s X-Men felt the need to modernize its team, Spider-Man fully embraced its classical roots, down to the iconic outfit. That s because director Sam Raimi was a lifelong fan who fully knew how to navigate and celebrate Spidey, from the relatable morality at the core of Peter Parker (played by Tobey Maguire) and the shattering death of his Uncle Ben, to his stormy relationship with Mary Jane and those workplace shenanigans with hard-ass newspaper boss J. Jonah Jameson, and finally Parker s iconic battle with the Green Goblin, whose son just happens to be Peter s best friend.Spider-Man arguably fights the greatest rogues gallery in all of Marveldom, and they certainly got their due on-screen in the Raimi trilogy. Doctor Octopus gets his tentacles all over Spider-Man 2, while Sandman, Venom, and junior Goblin stack the cast in Spider-Man 3. Though a box office hit like the others, Spider-Man 3 s tepid critical and fan response was enough to kill the momentum on continuing the series.In 2012, Spider-Man was rebooted with The Amazing Spider-Man, with Andrew Garfield as Parker. The film sought to bring in the pre-Mary Jane flame, Gwen Stacy, and pitted Spider-Man against another classic villain, The Lizard, as director Marc Webb developed a more realistic portrayal of Peter s world, as opposed to Raimi s comic-book overtone. The second Amazing Spider-Man fell for the too-many-villains trap (we had Electro, Green Goblin, and Rhino), and the franchise shut down again.With the Marvel Cinematic Universe in full motion, Marvel Studios was able to negotiate a deal with Sony, which holds the theatrical rights to Spider-Man, to get the character to jump to the MCU. Thus, Tom Holland made his debut in 2016 for the centerpiece battle in Captain America: Civil War, before starring in his own celebrated film, Spider-Man: Homecoming one year later.It s been good times for Spidey fans ever since, with Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (the animated blockbuster which brings Miles Morales into the fold), Spider-Man: Far From Home, and the upcoming No Way Home. Even his bad guys have reason to celebrate: Critics may not have loved 2018 s Venom, but audiences sure did. And Tom Hardy clearly does as well, as he returned as Eddie Brock for Venom: Let There Be Carnage.Now, we re ranking all Spider-Man and Venom movies by Tomatometer!
The 33 Best Boxing Movies of All TimePugilists have been popular camera subjects since the start boxing, at the time, being arguably the most interesting thing you do to another person in public. In the odd century-plus that s passed since, boxing cinema has evolved past mere punching for spectacle. It s about personal toil. Training. Strength. Sacrifice. Undying commitment to the physical vision. And then it s about hitting somebody for money. Or respect, sure.Tonight s title bout: The best-reviewed boxing movies ever! In one corner, we have heavyweight classics like Rocky and Raging Bull. In the other, hungry newcomers like Creed and Million Dollar Baby. And in another corner (we have a lot of corners): hard-hitting documentaries, repped by When We Were Kings and Unforgivable Blackness. And, yes, we re going international in this corner: see Knuckle all the way from Ireland, and China Heavyweight, all the way from, er, China. To be a contender, the movie needed to put up a Fresh rating after 20 reviews, before we ranked them with our weighted formula calculating a film s Tomatometer score, its number of reviews, and year of release.Think you got what it takes to take on the champs? Hit em where it counts! Hit em right in the 33 Best Boxing Movies of All Time!

5. TIFFANY HADDISH, WILLEM DAFOE JOIN PAUL SCHRADER S THE CARD COUNTER(Photo by Elizabeth Goodenough, Jef Hernandez/Everett Collection)The latest film from writer and director Paul Schrader was 2017 s First Reformed (Certified Fresh at 93%), in which Ethan Hawke played a priest struggling with religious doubt and commitment to his faith. For his next film, Schrader will shift from the church to the casino (sort of). Oscar Isaac went into this week already attached to star in The Card Counter as a professional gambler who finds himself recruited into a revenge plot against a military colonel. This week, Isaac was joined by three more stars, including Tiffany Haddish (as a mysterious gambling financier ), Tye Sheridan, and Willem Dafoe (as the colonel). Martin Scorsese, who directed early Paul Schrader screenplays like Taxi Driver and Raging Bull, also signed on this week to executive produce the film.6. MARGARET QUALLEY JOINS SCOTT COOPER S HORROR FILM A HEAD FULL OF GHOSTS(Photo by Daniel McFadden/©Warner Bros.)Margot Robbie obviously had the highest profile female role in Quentin Tarantino s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, but the film also boosted the careers of some of its other actresses (including child star Julia Butters, who is now 10 years old). Many of the film s female stars portrayed members of the Manson Family, and the actress with the largest role within that group was Margaret Qualley (The Nice Guys, HBO s The Leftovers), who played the young lady who brought Brad Pitt s character to the Spahn Ranch. One of Qualley s next projects will be a psychological horror film called A Head Full of Ghosts, which will be an adaptation of a Bram Stoker Award-winning horror novel. A Head Full of Ghosts will be directed by Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart, Black Mass, Hostiles), who will soon be releasing another horror film, Antlers (4/17/2020).7. LIAM NEESON TO STAR AS AN ASSASSIN FOR CASINO ROYALE DIRECTOR (Photo by Maria Marin/©Sony Classics) Last year, Liam Neeson starred in the thriller Cold Pursuit as a snowplow driver, and he also recently wrapped filming on another similar movie, The Ice Road, as a truck driver like the ones on Ice Road Truckers. After so much time spent filming those movies in Canada, Neeson apparently told his agents to get him into a movie that will send him to sunnier climes, because that s what his latest apparently is. Liam Neeson is now attached to star as a world class assassin in the crime thriller Memory for director Martin Campbell, whose past films have included both Green Lantern (Rotten at 26%) and Daniel Craig s first movie as James Bond, Casino Royale (Certified Fresh at 95%).8. ORIGINAL FIRST WIVES CLUB STARS TO REUNITE FOR FAMILY JEWELS The BET+ cable network recently started airing a First Wives Club show adapted from both the 1996 movie of the same title and, ostensibly, the novel from which that movie itself adapted. This story has less to do with First Wives Club itself, however, and more to do with the three actresses who starred in the 1996 movie together: Diane Keaton, Goldie Hawn, and Bette Midler. As that movie nears its 25th anniversary (next year in 2021), its three leading ladies are now preparing to co-star in another comedy together. The movie will be called Family Jewels, and it s described as a multigenerational holiday comedy about three women who are forced to spend the holidays together after the death of the man to whom all three women were once married. The multigenerational part hints at a larger ensemble cast, but no other cast members, or the actor who will play their recently deceased ex-husband, have been announced yet.9. ANIMATED KIDS SHOW PAW PATROL COMING TO THEATERS IN AUGUST OF 2021 (Photo by Nickelodeon courtesy Everett Collection)Some animated kids shows are able to appeal to adults as well (SpongeBob SquarePants), and others bridge both audiences over time (Dora the Explorer did this, arguably), but then there are shows that seem to pretty much remain kids shows. One that seems like it s still solidly in the just for kids category (after seven seasons) is Nickelodeon s PAW Patrol. The show centers on a young boy who teams up with a variety of different dogs (some of whom can fly or have other cyborg parts) for a wide range of different rescue-related adventures. Paramount and Nickelodeon are now developing a CGI-animated feature-length Paw Patrol: The Movie, which is being scheduled for release sometime in August of 2021. The only other movie currently scheduled for that month is James Gunn s The Suicide Squad (8/6/2021). PAW Patrol: The Movie will be directed by Cal Brunker, whose previous animated features include The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature (Rotten at 14%), Escape from Planet Earth (Rotten at 35%), and Arctic Dogs (Rotten at 13%).10. ORPHAN TO GET PREQUEL FROM DIRECTOR OF BRAHMS: THE BOY II (Photo by Warner Bros. courtesy Everett Collection)The review embargo for this week s horror sequel Brahms: The Boy II wasn t lifted until today, and the film s Rotten Tomatometer score might offer a hint as to why. Getting ahead of the film s release, director William Brent Bell was able to get two other projects in the news this week before the reviews hit. The higher profile project is another follow up to a horror movie from a few years ago, except that this one is a prequel, and the movie it s following is far longer ago than 2015 s The Boy. Bell will next direct Esther, which will be a prequel to the 2009 horror film Orphan (Rotten at 56%). That role will almost certainly have to be recast, because Isabelle Fuhrmann, who played Esther in Orphan, is now 22 years old, and unlikely to pull off playing a nine-year-old girl again (especially in a prequel). Filming of Esther is expected to start in the third quarter of 2020, which means it will probably be released sometime in 2021. William Brent Bell is also attached to direct Lord of Misrule, which is described as being a contemporary folk horror film in the style of Midsommar or The Wicker Man.
The story is also not a direct translation of Huxley’s 1932 novel. While this may dismay some AP English literature teachers, Ehrenreich is here for it.“I ve been a part of a few things now that are adapted from books and other source material, and I think the most important thing is to find a way to express the central essence of the thing,” he said. “A lot of times, just strictly, they’re different mediums. So just being overly faithful to it ends up being a pretty boring movie or series, because you can get across a feeling or an idea in a book in a way you can t in a film necessarily.“I think the best way to serve the original source material is to change it to make it vivid and alive for the medium it s now it,” he said.Working with the actor bring the material to life are costars Harry Lloyd (Game of Thrones) as grasping Alpha counselor Bernard Marx, Jessica Brown Findlay (Downton Abbey) as disillusioned Beta Lenina Crowne, Joseph Morgan as Epsilon CJack60, Kylie Bunbury (When They See Us) as Beta party girl Frannie, and Hannah John-Kamen (Ant-Man and the Wasp) as Alpha master of ceremonies Wilhelmina Helm Watson.(Photo by Steve Schofield/Peacock)The show also is one of several bullet points on Ehrenreich’s resume that highlight parts where he plays people who have fraught relationships with parents or authoritarian figures. See also: the movie Blue Jasmine or Matt Wolf’s documentary based on the Jon Savage (coincidentally) book, Teenage: The Creation of Youth Culture.Ehrenreich laughed when asked if this was intentional on his part and said he never thought about it much. But he also said it was almost inevitable because “if you’re playing a really deeply written and full character who’s under 35, their psychology, their worldview is very influenced” by parental figures and “it’s maybe more present in the story.”(Photo by © Lucasfilm/ © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)Brave New World marks another major science fiction project for Ehrenreich. Does he have a particular passion for that genre?“Not in and of itself,” he said. “I love the universe of Star Wars; I think that world is this incredible, mythological-rooted and incredibly imaginative world that George Lucas created,” he said, adding that Brave New World is very different.“This is sci-fi being used to hold a mirror up to our world, he explained. This is not about an escape into another world. This is about exaggerating undercurrents of the world we live in so that we can see them and experience them more vividly.”Brave New World premieres on Peacock on Wednesday, July 15.
The Mandalorian comes roaring back with the first episode of season 2. Chapter 9: The Marshal serves up loving shots of The Child ( Baby Yoda ), a monster of a challenge for Din Djarin/The Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal), an engaging new character played by Hollywood s favorite lawman and gunslinger Timothy Olyphant, and plenty of shoot- em-up action.Here’s what critics are saying about episode 1 of The Mandalorian season 2:Is The Child Still Adorable?(Photo by Lucasfilm/Disney+)“Even with Mando kicking serious ass for most of the episode, the best part of the premiere was, naturally, Baby Yoda.” Amanda Mullen, Culturess“This episode of The Mandalorian is pretty much Jaws. It s Jaws plus Baby Yoda reaction shots. What more could you want?” Ben Allen, GQ Magazine [UK]“This week s adventure is as simple as they come, and, as expected, Baby Yoda s as cute as ever.” Jack Shepherd, SFX Magazine“The Mandalorian has returned to save 2020 with a stellar opening episode helmed by Jon Favreau, a wonderful performance from an unexpected co-star, and plenty of Baby Yoda cuteness.” Josh Wilding, ComicBookMovie.com How Does The Marshal Hold Up Next to the High Bar Set by Season 1?(Photo by Lucasfilm/Disney+)“Hopefully, Favreau and Co. continue to experiment and open up this universe. The Marshal celebrates what you love about Star Wars and makes you love it more. It provides more understanding of what we ve seen and who we thought we knew.” Preston Barta, Fresh Fiction“[The Mandalorian] proves with one of its best episodes yet that it still has a lot of flair, inspiration, and jetpack fuel to go around.” Nick Allen, RogerEbert.com“It s such a simple premise and it s been done more times than we can count, but in this age of convoluted storytelling and It s really a 10-hour movie seasons of television, it feels fresh and, in its own way, kind of revolutionary.” Tom Fitzgerald and Lorenzo Marquez, Tom Lorenzo“ The Marshal doesn t feel long. There are probably some spots that could have been tightened up, but on the whole it was very much of a piece with how the show worked so well a year ago.” Alan Sepinwall, Rolling Stone“The first episode, Chapter 9: The Marshal, was full of highlights, marking a strong start to the show s sophomore run.” Amanda Mullen, Culturess“You can relax The Mandalorian Season 2 isn t about to skimp on the action, and it s of the same quality as it was in the previous outing.” Jonathon Wilson, Ready Steady CutHow Are the New Characters?(Photo by Lucasfilm/Disney+)“We don t need gimmicky cameos by movie characters to tie in with the saga as a whole, and The Marshal offers something arguably much richer.” Richard Trenholm, CNET“As the episode’s title, ‘The Marshal’, might suggest, a marshal with whom to contend, played winningly by Timothy Olyphant, who has form in the lawman department. Throwing Mando in with someone as laconic and charming as Olyphant even brings something out of the taciturn hero. At one point he comes dangerously close to making what could be considered to be, after much scrutiny, a joke.” Chris Hewitt, Empire Magazine“[Olyphant] does a terrific job alongside Pedro Pascal s formidable bounty hunter and is someone we definitely hope to see more of in this series (or others). The actor in question is one of the most talented working in Hollywood today, though not someone we see anywhere near as often as we should on screen. With The Mandalorian, however, they re bound to now have a whole new legion of fans. ” Josh Wilding, ComicBookMovie.comGood Easter Eggs? (Photo by Lucasfilm/Disney+)“Despite my love of all the fun Easter Eggs, we should hope that The Mandalorian doesn t get too overwhelmed by bringing in wider Star Wars lore and forget what makes it work so well the simple story of a gruff mercenary and a super-powered alien muppet.” Huw Fullerton, Radio Times“Even with so many nods to Star Wars past, The Mandalorian’s not overstuffed.” Jack Shepherd, SFX Magazine
82 Teen Drama TV and Streaming Series by TomatometerUpdated April 20, 2020Teen dramas, like the very audience they’re reaching, have always had an uphill climb to be taken seriously. They are beloved, but do critics actually think they’re any good? While Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Veronica Mars are often cited as series that impacted critics’ formative years and have high Tomatometer ratings, others are dismissed as nothing but guilty pleasures.Then along come titles like Freeform s Cruel Summer, which is Fresh at 90% on the Tomatometer; Shadow and Bone, which is Fresh at 87% and comes from streamer Netflix; and The CW’s hit Riverdale.Rotten Tomatoes has gathered the scores of these and many others in the genre to determine which show wins the title of best-reviewed teen drama. Where the Tomatometer scores are tied, we ve listed those with the higher number of reviews higher on the list to reflect that more critics weighed in, and then alphabetically for those that have the same score and the same number of reviews. There are several series listed with a 100% Tomatometer score, for example, but Recovery Road has only six reviews for its first, and only, season and is therefore ranked at the bottom of that section.A number of teen dramas like Beverly Hills 90210, Dawson s Creek, The Wonder Years, and The Vampire Diaries/Originals spin-off Legacies currently do not have enough Tomatometer-eligible reviews across their seasons to receive a series-level score. We will update this list if and when such titles receive a score.Disagree with the results? Tell us in the comments which series you think should have been ranked higher (or lower). 可以说，《真·三国无双8帝国》能受到如此多玩家的关注，很大的原因就在于它摆脱了原有系列的束缚，而给各位策略老粉一种完全不同的游戏体验。而和这款游戏类似，即将上线的三国策略手游《荣耀新三国》，同样也在玩法上下了非常大的功夫。
(Photo by Everett Collection)Our new Classic Film Catch-Up feature connects you with classic films to put on your watchlist – beloved favorites and hidden gems alike. With more time at home, there s no better opportunity to finally watch these titles that helped define cinema as we know it.The current situation of social distancing has many of us thinking of ways to maximize the time we spend at home. We re also eating several times a day and annoying our pets, but being productive does cross our minds from time to time. Puzzles, long-abandoned books, craft projects, and New Year s resolutions have suddenly jumped to the top of our to-do lists. In the RT comments, many of you have shared how you re catching up on classic films, and we happen to agree that now is the perfect time to increase your classic film viewing.Concentrating on films released before 1980 (both well-known titles and hidden gems), we re producing new guides to essential classic films curated by theme, filmmaker, actor, genre, or style – all for your classic catch-up needs. Want to see our picks for the best French farces? How about a curated list of Fresh picks from Alfred Hitchcock, Peter Sellers, or Billy Wilder? As well as curating watch lists, we re breaking down the films, telling you where you can watch them, and giving you some more recent and/or well-known films the classics might remind you of so you can gauge which movies are right for you.This week in the Classic Film Catch-Up, we re ready to dance and sing about lesser-known or forgotten musicals – some classics, and some should-be-classics. The 50s and 60s were truly the golden ages of movie musicals; Best Picture winners like The Sound of Music, West Side Story, My Fair Lady, and An American in Paris made stars out of Natalie Wood, Leslie Caron, and Rita Moreno, while established stars like Julie Andrews, Gene Kelly, and Audrey Hepburn catapulted to icon status on the backs of musical roles during this period. Later years saw rock musicals like Jesus Christ Superstar, Grease, and Tommy break into the mainstream – however, countless gems have been largely forgotten by modern audiences. And we re here to fix that.Some titles on this list found cult-like followings in later years while others were unfortunate victims of too-close comparisons with their Broadway inspiration – either way, we think the films make up an eclectic roster of must-watch musicals. Read below for our list of hidden gem classic musicals you need to see or revisit.Got another favorite hidden gem classic musical you d add to our list? Have a suggestion for a future theme or classic film to feature in the column? Let us know in the comments. The Unsinkable Molly Brown (1964) 78% What is it? A rags to riches musical about a famed socialite who survived the sinking of the Titanic.Why you need to see it: Debbie Reynolds is widely known for her role in Singin in the Rain – and for being Carrie Fisher s mother. However, if you want to see the triple-threat performer at her peak you must watch The Unsinkable Molly Brown. Reynolds plays the famed Denver socialite from humble beginnings who survived a flood as an infant and then the Titanic disaster as an adult. The film follows a fictional Molly from her years as a saloon girl to her eventual fame as one of the richest women in the country. Nominated for eight Academy Awards, the film was a hit for MGM, but is not as familiar to modern audiences as some of its glossy contemporaries. Filled with humor and show-stopping numbers, the movie will have you humming ditties like I ll Never Say No and Belly Up to the Bar, Boys as soon as the credits roll.Watch it if you like: Singin in the Rain, Princess Diaries, The Great Gadsby, Lawless, Funny Girl, My Fair LadyWhere to watch: Stream on TCMWatch app. Rent or buy on FandangoNOW, Vudu, Amazon, Google Play, and iTunes.Man of La Mancha (1972) 50% What is it? A musical biopic about Don Quixote author Miguel de Cervantes, using his most famed literary creation as a plot device.Why you need to see it: It s hard to understand why the film adaptation of The Man from La Mancha starring Peter O Toole and Sophia Loren was not a critical and commercial hit. The original stage production was a smash on Broadway and took home five Tonys, but audiences were none-too-impressed with the film version: It failed to earn back its production budget and Time thought so little of it that the magazine didn t even publish a full review. Most of the problems with the adaptation are a result of its troubled production; a revolving door of directors and a heated debate over whether to make the film a musical at all crippled any effort to do justice to the source material. The dreary costumes, laughable sets, and indifferent cinematography may mar the overall product, but the music remains incredible, and Toole and Loren give it their all despite the challenges. So it s still worth a watch.Watch it if you like: The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, Don Juan Demarco, Monty Python, and the Holy Grail, The Mask of Zorro, The Three MusketeersWhere to watch: Stream now on HooplaDigital. Rent or buy on FandangoNOW, Vudu, Amazon, and iTunes.Carmen Jones (1954) 77% (Photo by Courtesy of 2Oth Century Fox)What is it? George Bizet s Carmen is re-imagined with an all-Black cast.Why you need to see it: Carmen Jones is another Broadway hit to get the Hollywood treatment. Dorothy Dandridge, Diahann Carroll, Pearl Bailey, and Harry Belafonte are mesmerizing in this story of the misadventures of a troublesome seductress living in America during World War II. Playing Carmen, Dandridge made her mark on history, becoming the first African American woman to be nominated for Best Actress in a Motion Picture. Nominated for two Oscars, the film is well-known but not frequently watched. The performances, costumes, and rich Technicolor landscapes make watching the film a truly transformative experience that is almost enough to forgive the choice to dub the voices of famed singers in the production.Watch it if you like: Porgy Bess, Introducing Dorthy Dandridge, Carmen: A Hip-Hopera, Rent, Les MiserablesWhere to watch: Rent or buy on FandangoNOW, Vudu, Amazon, Google Play, and iTunes.The Wiz (1978) 42% What is it? The Wizard of OZ is remade with a contemporary story, new music, and an all-Black cast.Why you need to see it: As many Twitter users pointed out during NBC s The Wiz Live! in 2015, many movie fans have not seen The Wiz. Beloved in the Black community, the film was a commercial disaster despite starring icons Diana Ross, Richard Pryor, Michael Jackson, and Lena Horne. A modern imagining of Dorothy s trek along the yellow brick road – with music from Quincy Jones and Luther Vandross, direction by Sidney Lumet, and words by Joel Schumacher – the film was one of the most expensive musical productions ever made, and lost million at the box office. The film s popularity never matched its ambition outside of the Black community, where it s still lauded as a cult classic. And it s easy to see why when you watch it today. With some of the most gifted musicians of our time in front of and behind the camera, The Wiz is a soulful crowd pleaser that showcases these artists at the height of their popularity and powers.Watch it if you like: The Wizard of OZ, Oz, The Great and Powerful, Return to Oz, Moonwalker, Idlewild, LabyrinthWhere to watch: Stream now on Starz app. Rent or buy on FandangoNOW, Vudu, Amazon, Google Play, and iTunes.There's No Business Like Show Business (1954) 67% (Photo by Courtesy of 20th Century Fox)What is it? Chronicles the lives and loves of The Donahues, a family vaudeville act.Why you need to see it: In a way, this is the original jukebox movie musical – all of the songs from There s No Business Like Show Business were previously penned by Irving Berlin for other works. Stacked with stage powerhouses like Ethel Merman and Dan Dailey, as well as film stars like Mitzi Gaynor and Donald O Connor, the film was primarily a vehicle to showcase Marilyn Monroe, who had just married Joe DiMaggio and was one of the biggest names and box office draws in Hollywood. However, with a near two-hour runtime (a rare feat for musicals of that era), audiences found the film to be a little too Broadway and lacking in story. Monroe, who famously only took the role to ensure her casting in The Seven Year Itch, didn t shine in any of her musical numbers and was lambasted by critics. Despite all this, however, There s No Business like Show Business does have some of the most incredible and lavish musical numbers ever committed to screen, and further highlights Berlin s incomparable musical catalog.Watch it if you like: A Chorus Line, Gypsy, Funny Girl, Some Like it Hot, The Greatest ShowmanWhere to watch: Rent or buy on FandangoNOW, Vudu, Amazon, Google Play, and iTunes.Cover Girl (1944) 95% (Photo by Courtesy of Sony Home Entertainment)What is it? A young chorus girl wins a cover girl contest, is thrust into stardom, and must choose between her career or love.Why you need to see it: Rita Hayworth became one of only a handful of women who had the enviable honor of dancing with both Gene Kelly and Fred Astair on screen with her role in Cover Girl. Dancing alongside Kelly in her first role with top billing, Cover Girl was one of Hayworth s final films before Gilda solidified her as a film icon. Shown briefly in The Shawshank Redemption, Hayworth s iconic entrance and overall performance here was also the inspiration for Jessica Rabbit in Who Framed Roger Rabbit. A massive hit at the time, this story of a showgirl-turned-star has been sadly dwarfed in later years by Kelly s and Hayworth s more memorable roles like Singin in the Rain and The Lady From Shanghai, respectively.Watch it if you like: Gilda, Showboat, A Chorus Line, Almost Famous, A Star is Born, RockstarWhere to watch: Rent or buy on FandangoNOW, Vudu, Amazon, Google Play, and iTunes.Hair (1979) 88% What is it? An anti-war rock musical set within the hippie counter culture.Why you need to see it: Though many will know Hair s catchy opening number Aquarius, the musical itself is a bit of a lesser-known treasure outside of musical theater obsessives. The first film directed by Milos Forman after his critical and commercial smash One Flew over the Cuckoo s Nest, Hair had critics raving about his skill in adapting the controversial and stylized musical. Roger Ebert said of Forman: He brings life to the musical form in the same way that West Side Story did. Still, some contemporaries – including the musical s creators – argued it diluted the musical s anti-war message was diluted on the journey from stage to screen.Watch it if you like: Jesus Christ Superstar, Across the Universe, Sgt.
