亚博的网站多少采用百度引擎3（Baidu 3）What it is: From creators (and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia vets) Charlie Day, Megan Ganz, and Rob McElhenney (who also stars), Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet is a traditional workplace comedy in that it features an overbearing, self-involved, and oft-clueless boss overseeing a team of quirky misfits. But by placing it in the unexplored setting of a hit video game production company, it’s a fun look behind the curtain of the ever-growing world of fanboys and fangirls alike.Why you should watch it: McElhenney is in top comedic (and physical) form as the boss of Mythic Quest, but it’s the ensemble of both sitcom regulars and new faces that keeps you coming back for more. Charlotte Nicdao in particular co-leads as a disgruntled, undervalued employee and manages to humanize her neuroticism to endearing and hilarious effect. Season 2 premieres May 7 on Apple TV+.Where to watch: Apple TV+Commitment: Approx. 5.5 hours (for the first season and Everlight special)
(Photo by @ Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, @ Marvel Studios)Critics and fans alike are loving Avengers: Endgame. The movie is Certified Fresh at 95% and made a cool .2 billion at the global box office in its first weekend. It could very well turn out to be the biggest movie ever – and one of the most beloved. The key to its success? Critics say it s all about giving the MCU s loyal fans what they want. Eric Eisenberg of Cinema Blend was typical in his assessment, calling Endgame, A wonderful gift to all those who have spent the last decade-plus emotionally engaging with the lives and adventures of these characters.” It s stacked with f k yeah moments and delights, the best of which make callbacks to early films in the franchise.And one of those movies is more important than any other.So, hear us out: Endgame owes much of its success to that under-sung hero of the MCU, Avengers: Age of Ultron. While one of the least popular entries in the MCU, and the lowest-rated Avengers flick on the Tomatometer at 75% (which is still not bad!), Ultron deserves credit as the foundation on which the entire second half of the MCU was built. And we re about to make a spoiler-filled case as to why, breaking down the story beats and relationships that Ultron established and that Endgame would use to such great effect – so be warned if you ve not seen Endgame, Ultron, or both.Major spoilers for Avengers: Endgame follow. Hulk Taking Control of Both Sides? It Started With Ultron.(Photo by @ Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, @ Marvel Studios)Around the time of Age of Ultron, there was still hope at Marvel that they would be able to make a deal for the Hulk and start a string of Hulk-only movies. Universal still owned the rights to the character for all standalone films, but behind the scenes, there were talks. When it became clear that a deal was not going to be forthcoming, Marvel spread the planned events for a standalone Hulk film throughout Avengers: Age of Ultron, Thor: Ragnarok, and the Infinity War two-parter. That’s right, the seeds of the fantastic Hipster Hulk payoff in Endgame were first sewn in Ultron. Think back to the Hulk/Banner in Ultron; he’s held back from the team at times to make sure he doesn’t do too much damage. Then, after a wave of the finger from Scarlet Witch, he wreaks havoc. Throughout Ultron, Banner is always questioning whether the team needs a ‘code green.’ He knows the Hulk s a powerful weapon, but he s terrified that he s not in control. By Endgame, we ve finally seen the complete character arc from this struggle in Ultron, to the Hulk completely taking over in Thor: Ragnarok, to Banner s inability to summon the green guy in Avengers: Infinity War, to the eventual blend of the Hulk s might and Bruce s mind in the new movie. (The latest incarnation is a play on a storyline that first appeared in The Incredible Hulk #377, in which Banner finally has control of both the monster and his mind – adding hipster glasses with a huge cardigan is just a lovely bonus.)The Start of a Beautiful and Pivotal Relationship: Wanda and Vision, a.k.a. WandaVision.(Photo by @ Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, @ Marvel Studios)The WandaVision relationship, as well as their powers, would become crucial to the MCU and especially to the Infinity Saga. It is also central to two of the saga s biggest moments: it s Vision s death in Infinity War that breaks our hearts, and it s Wanda s moment of revenge and power in Endgame that gives us such great feels. And that all started with Ultron. From her first encounter with Vision in Age of Ultron, Wanda is drawn to his mind; even when we still didn t know if he was good or evil, her first words about him were, “I can read him… his mind. Ultron introduces Wanda and her brother to his creation in the final stages of completion and even before his birth, Vision s mind called out to her. Talk about a meet-cute.When we finally learn Thanos master plan to gather all the Infinity Stones, we realize quickly that Vision will be in danger. The Mind Stone is the origin of his powers – it s literally fused to his head using whatever tech stuff Shuri was talking about in Infinity War. That connection sets up what might be the Infinity Saga s ultimate and most painful sacrifice: Killing Vision in Infinity War as a last-ditch effort to thwart Thanos turns out to be a pointless and heartbreaking effort – with a twist of the Infinity Gauntlet, it is all undone. We watched them fall in love, beginning in Ultron, and witnessed their tragic end in Infinity War. When she appears in Endgame, summoning her powers in fury, it s a completely satisfying bookend to everything Ultron began.Who is worthy? THE PERFECT SETUP FOR CAP S BIG HAMMER MOMENT.In one of the best scenes in Age of Ultron, the Avengers pal around with a few drinks at an afterparty. What is played as an entertaining comedic break, with the various members trying to lift Thor’s hammer, Mjölnir, actually sets up one of the biggest moments of Endgame. Iron Man, War Machine, Hawkeye, and – comically – Bruce Banner all try to lift the hammer and prove themselves worthy. None are successful, but for one brief moment, Captain America tugs at Mjölnir, and it quivers. The movement wipes a confident smirk off Thor’s face and signals that maybe Steve Rogers could one day wield the hammer. So it’s no surprise in the finale of Endgame to see who is lifting Mjölnir. Thor even exclaims, “I knew it!” (It s actually another direct pull from the comics: Captain America is one of the few worthy enough to wield the hammer forged in the heart of a dying star – we re still getting goosebumps just thinking about it.)Clint Barton, Hawkeye, and the farm.According to Ultron director Joss Whedon, there were several creative differences between him and Marvel Studios during the filming of Age of Ultron, none more contentious than the debate over the trip to the farm to meet Clint’s family. Marvel brass were apparently not into giving Hawkeye a familial backstory – having seen Endgame, we re thankful they lost on that one. The broken, singularly focused, vigilante Ronin that Hawkeye becomes in Endgame doesn t have the same resonance if we haven t spent time with his family. (And what about that opening scene?!) The device of the farm is also used to further establish the closeness between Natasha and Hawkeye, as in Ultron we learn that she is the only one with prior knowledge of the farm and his family life. These quiet moments raise the emotional stakes of the fight we see between Clint and Natasha in Endgame, as they do battle over who will sacrifice themselves for the Soul Stone. Without the Ultron setup, those stakes would not be so high.Tony vs. Cap: A Civil War begins.Civil War may have been the first battle between the Avengers, but some early, quiet shots were fired in Ultron. The argument on the farm during which Steve scolds Tony for creating, and especially for not telling him about, Ultron, is one many will point back to as the start of their fracturing. Then there is the physical fight between Captain America and Iron Man that happens later in Ultron, while Tony tries to finish his Vision . Steve and Tony come to blows about it just before Thor harnesses lighting to finally birth Vision. The Russo brothers told us in our extended interview that the Avengers failed in Avengers: Infinity War because they were divided, and the cracks of that fatal divide first began to appear in Ultron. Even direct quotes from Age of Ultron reappear in Endgame with Tony repeating his warning, “We’ll lose – adding Steve’s reply of “We’ll lose together” is of little solace. That broken version of Tony, ripping his core from his chest, was perhaps even harder to watch than his heroic end.Tony, always trying to get ahead of things.(Photo by @ Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, @ Marvel Studios)It starts and stops with Tony. The whole plot of Ultron comes from one driving force: Tony’s fear of the next thing from space trying to annihilate the earth. That up there, he quips, pointing to the sky and referencing the alien invasion of New York. That s the endgame. And it was, in every sense of the word. Thanos does come to destroy the earth, and that threat is what the Avengers were created to stop. Tony, in creating Ultron, was trying to win a war before it started; during the wood cutting argument, Steve astutely reminds him, “Every time someone tries to win a war before it starts, people die.” Before the events of Ultron, Tony created Veronica just in case they ever lost control of The Hulk (or a lullaby didn’t work). The Hulkbuster back-up plan kind of worked. That drive to plan ahead, to be prepared, may have been a fatal flaw with Ultron, but it also allowed Tony to outsmart Thanos in Endgame. The glove Tony installs on his suit to steal the infinity stones is just that type of planning. He was reluctant to join the second fight and the visions of defeat he saw in Ultron still haunt him, but he was, in the end, able to use that fear to defeat their most formidable foe. It s a complete bookend to the character and his essential motivation.(Photo by @ Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, @ Marvel Studios)And there are so many smaller Ultron setups:Ragnarok: Heimdall first teases Ragnarok and the fact they will lose in Thor’s vision before he later heads to a cave to get more answers. Thor sees the Infinity Stones and the gauntlet for the first time. More breadcrumbs to our final battle.Avengers Assemble: The “Avengers Assemble” line that Captain America calls out in the final battle was first teased in Ultron. A near synonymous tag line for Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, it is a line comic book fans have been waiting to hear. We cut to credits before Cap could call it out in Ultron, but we finally get it in Endgame.Wakanda: In a quick scene with Ulysses Klaw, we first hear reference what would turn out to be the key destination in the highest-grossing superhero movie ever – before Endgame. Vibranium, Andy Serkis with a Wakandan tattoo, and the rest is history.(Photo by @ Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, @ Marvel Studios)Captain America Back With Carter: We’d have to guess it’s not a coincidence that Wanda’s visions sent Captain America back to Agent Carter and the 1940s. Throughout the series, his greatest regret is not being able to share a life with her, thus making his ending as an old man who stole time to get a life all the sweeter. Fine, I ll do it myself : We meet a winking and silent Thanos in The Avengers, and we first spy the Infinity Gauntlet in Thor’s Scarlet Witch vision. But it s not until Ultron s mid-credits stinger that we see our big baddie in full armor – voiced by Josh Brolin – snatching the gauntlet and saying, “Fine, I’ll do it myself.”(Photo by @ Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, @ Marvel Studios)The Avengers Facility: A small but noteworthy moment. The Avengers get a new home. The Avengers compound is basecamp going forward. New Mutants Cast and Director: "It's Not Like Any Other Comic Book Movie”
For almost two decades, Judd Apatow has been the king of a certain kind of American movie comedy – as he described it to Rotten Tomatoes, films about people who are stuck and whose lives are falling apart… because “life falling apart is usually funny. In movies like Knocked Up, The 40-Year-Old Virgin, and Trainwreck, the writer and director has given us some of recent cinema’s funniest moments, from a chest-waxing scene that almost cost Steve Carell his nipple to an epic breakdown in the principal’s office courtesy of a foul-mouthed Melissa McCarthy in This Is 40. His latest comedy, The King of Staten Island, is a semi-autobiographical feature starring and co-written by Saturday Night Live star Pete Davidson, and it packs in Apatow’s signature mix of big laughs and big feels.Ahead of the movie’s release, Apatow sat down with us to break down the mechanics and stories behind some of the funniest scenes he’s put on the screen – including an messy pool fight that’s getting the biggest laughs from audiences who’ve seen his newest film.亚博的网站多少(Photo by Paramount Pictures)SXSW announced the final films for their 2019 festival slate and two of the most hotly anticipated horror titles will bookend the festival. As previously announced, Jordan Peele will open the festival with US, his follow up to the Oscar-winning cultural phenomenon Get Out, and as announced today, the world premiere of Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer s Pet Sematary will close it out.The latter, a remake of an adaptation of Stephen King s terrifying novel about zombie pets tormenting families, first gained our attention when a trailer for the film dropped late last year. The Starry Eyes directing duo bring their version, led by John Lithgow and Jason Clarke, to the Lone Star State s premiere film festival exactly thirty years after Mary Lambert s Pet Sematary hit theaters in 1989. But these are not the only frightening titles we noticed. We expect scares from several entries in the Midnighters section, including Daniel Isn t Real, the tale of a troubled college student who resurrects his childhood imaginary friend as a means to cope with his hectic life.The festival favorites section features Sundance standouts Knock Down the House and Apollo 11, as well as some of our fave picks from the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival, like the Elisabeth Moss punk rock musical Her Smell. We singled out these ten features as ones we re anxious to see with that infamously raucous SXSW crowd. You can find the full list of films that will screen Austin here.The Inventor: Out for Blood in Silicon Valley(Photo by Jigsaw Productions)Director/Screenwriter: Alex GibneyElizabeth Holmes was once the world s youngest self-made billionaire, heralded as the next Steve Jobs. Then, overnight, her -billion-dollar company dissolved. The rise and fall of blood-testing company Theranos is a window into the psychology of fraud; Holmes sent shock waves through Silicon Valley when her company collapsed amid scandal. With the story set to be adapted into a feature film starring Jennifer Lawerence in 2020, uber-documentarian Alex Gibney set his sights on the false promises of the Silicon Valley start-up.Boyz in the Wood Director/Screenwriter: Ninian DoffWhen four city-bred schoolboys embark on a traditional Duke of Edinburgh Award camping trip that takes them deep into the Scottish Highlands, they find themselves chased by a deranged masked couple with aims of culling the teenaged wildlife. What looks to be a grim version of Stand By Me set in the Scottish countryside has us more than a little intrigued.Raise Hell: The Life Times of Molly Ivins(Photo by TMIP, LLC)Director: Janice EngelScreenwriters: Janice Engel, Monique ZavistovskiSix feet of Texas trouble, Molly Ivins, a legendary journalist and a warrior for the Bill of Rights, fought Good Old Boy corruption with a razor-sharp wit that left both sides of the aisle laughing and craving ink in her columns. The Texas icon who famously dubbed George W. Bush Shrub (the Little Bush) gets her big screen debut in a film that looks to embody all that Ivins stood for: Brains, Brass, and Booze!Daniel Isn t RealDirector: Adam Egypt MortimerScreenwriters: Brian DeLeeuw, Adam Egypt MortimerTroubled Luke suffers a violent family trauma and resurrects his childhood imaginary friend to help him cope. Charismatic and full of manic energy, Daniel helps Luke to achieve his dreams, before pushing him into a desperate fight for his own soul.Them That Follow(Photo by Amasia Entertainment/G-BASE)Directors/Screenwriters: Britt Poulton, Dan Madison SavageSet deep in the wilds of Appalachia, where believers handle death-dealing snakes to prove themselves before God, Them That Follow tells the story of a pastor s daughter who holds a secret that threatens to tear her community apart.

With no one to turn to but her nerdy ex-best-friend, she’ll have to risk her neck — and social status — to fight the freaky extraterrestrial threat. Snatchers might bring just the right mix of off-kilter insanity to refresh the teen sex comedy genre.Cobra Kai Season 2 Outdoor ScreeningRyan FujitaniThe 100% Certified Fresh YouTube Original Series Cobra Kai will screen the first two episodes of its second season, followed by a Q A panel with series stars Ralph Macchio (Daniel LaRusso), William Zabka (Johnny Lawrence), and Martin Kove (Kreese).

Nanjiani follows up his Oscar-nominated mega-hit The Big Sick with a comedy-fueled version of Collateral. With two Guardians of Galaxy (Bautista and co-star Karen Gillan) in tow, we expect plenty of action with this one. Though not a completed effort, other films have headed to SXSW with the work-in-progress label and gone on to great success, such as The Disaster Artist, Keanu, and Sausage Party.
It’s Spielberg against Spielberg, Williams against Williams, and beast against beasts in our latest episode of Vs., in which we take two of the greatest and most beloved blockbusters of all time, put them through the ringer, and decide once and for all which of them is the true event-movie GOAT. (No, not the kind of goat you use to feed your once-extinct zoo animals.) Will it be the movie that INVENTED the concept of the blockbuster, Jaws, with its iconic score and “keep-Bruce-hidden” approach to keeping you out of the water? Or, will it be Jurassic Park, the special-effects–driven movie that changed the very idea of what was possible for blockbusters moving forward? Rotten Tomatoes Contributing Editor Mark Ellis is pitting the two movies against each other by Tomatometer, box office, and more to decide which beloved monster flick takes the biggest bite out of cinematic history.Of course, if you don t agree with our choice of winner, let us have it in the comments.Jaws was released on June 20, 1975. Jurassic Park was released on June 11, 1993.Thumbnail images by Universal courtesy Everett Collection

Nevertheless, Garland noted conversations moving from the possibility of a mulitverse where free will exists to a deterministic view where there is no choice elicits an equally strong emotional response.“If I have a conversation with people about free will, nobody likes the idea that they don t have it. And it is completely in contradiction with our own sense — ‘But I absolutely, definitely have free will. I can feel it now,’ [they say], which is again, it s what people feel, but it may not be supported by the data.”That view, as espoused by Forest, leads Devs’ main character, Lily Chan (Sonoya Mizuno), onto her collision course with the warm and melancholy Amaya CEO. And while discussing Lilly’s actions would lead to a level of spoilers we definitely cannot reveal in this or any other reality, it did lead to another question the show presents: Do ethics exist in a deterministic universe?“I don t personally think it takes ethics and morality out of the conversation, I just think it means you react differently to the state of affairs,” Garland said.(Photo by Miya Mizuno/FX)To illustrate morality in a deterministic universe, he used a 15-year-old boy mugging someone at knife point as an example. In a universe with free will, the boy’s punishment (provided he is caught) proceeds from the notion he is in absolute control of his choices.“If you take deterministic view, you might say, ‘Well, hang on a minute. Because this kid is a crystal meth addict, and both his parents were crystal meth addicts, and he was addicted by the time he was 12, and he was trapped in a world that had given him a very distorted sense of ethics, and, as well as that, a sense of desperation, and no home, that led ultimately to the mugging.’ Under those circumstances, punishing the kid makes much less sense. Rehabilitating a kid makes much more sense.”“What we do then is make sure that [the kid doesn’t] do it again, Garland suggested. So, that doesn t remove the ethics, because you still don t want the kid to mug anybody. It s just more that you re not punishing him for something that wasn t his own decision.”Of course, Garland was quick to point out that while his example leads to a morality with more empathy and compassion, it also suggests atrocities are also unavoidable in a deterministic universe. “I don t think anybody wants to let Adolf Hitler off the hook in the way that you might let a 15-year-old off the hook,” he quipped.Nonetheless, the morality of what Forest calls “tram lines” will no doubt feature in discussions of Devs when its full shape is revealed with the show s finale six weeks from now.

Sick of the rumors and the tabloids, musician Demi Lovato told journalists during a panel for her upcoming YouTube docu-series, Dancing with the Devil that she wants to set the record straight about what led to her 2018 overdose — and the ramifications from it.In the docuseries, she discusses that she had three strokes and a heart attack after the 2018 incident. Unfortunately, I was left with brain damage and I still deal with the effects of that today. I don t drive a car because I have blind spots in my vision, she said during the panel. I also, for a long time, had a really hard time reading it was a big deal when I was able to read out of a book, which was two months later because my vision was so blurry. I dealt with a lot of the repercussions and I feel like they, kind of, are still there to remind me of what could happen if I ever get into a dark place again. And I m grateful for those reminders. I m so grateful that I was someone that didn’t have to do a lot of rehabbing. The rehabbing came on the emotional side and the therapeutic side internally. Demi Lovato: Dancing with the Devil premieres March 23 on YouTube.Girls5Eva Isn t a Regular Show — It s a Cool ShowGirls5Eva is a musical comedy about four women who were members of a 1990s girl group. Created by Meredith Scardino, it will have plenty of catchy musical numbers. But like fellow executive producers Tina Fey, Robert Carlock and Jeff Richmond s Netflix series, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, all the fun and glitter will mask something much more serious.“I wanted to write a show about women in my age group and be able to talk about all the things that you go through as being a woman in your forties,” Scardino said during the Peacock show s TCA press panel, which included stars Sara Bareilles, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Paula Pell, and Busy Philipps who play the now (more) adult members of an girl group that was hot in the 1990s.There is also the subject of owning your narrative. As young popstars, Girls5Eva had no control over what they sang, wore or did, said Philipps, a professed fan of real-life girl group legends, Spice Girls. Now they re in a different place. How do you take ownership of your own story and rewrite it? Girls5Eva will premiere soon on Peacock.Plus: Peacock s Punky Power!, Ex-Rated Digs Into Past Relationships, a John Wayne Gacy Docu-Series, and MorePeacock s revival of Punky Brewster — or as star Soleil Moon Frye called it during the show s TCA panel, a continuation — premieres February 25 on Peacock. Like the original from the 1980s, it is a multi-camera comedy about the importance of family (however that word may be defined). But, also like the original, it gets into some heavy topics. The new version introduces Izzy (Quinn Copeland), a foster child who — like Punky — was abandoned by her mother. The original Punky Brewster dealt with so many real issues and for us creatively, to keep that authenticity was absolutely pivotal and important to all of us involved, Frye said. And so the original Punky had humor and laughter. And you also were dealing with pain. And life is messy and we go through rollercoasters of emotions. And so, to continue that honesty was incredibly important to everyone.
(Photo by ©Searchlight Pictures)The Producers Guild of America Awards (PGAs) were announced last night and the presumptive Best Picture Oscar winner Nomadland won for Outstanding Producer of a Theatrical Motion Picture. This latest win reaffirms the film s position as the favorite for the top Academy Award.The PGAs have in the past been seen as the indicator of who s taking home Best Picture winner at the Oscars, as many of the PGA voters also make up a significant voting body in the Academy, and the winners often match. But after choosing 1917 last year when Parasite took home Best Picture at the Academy Awards, and La La Land when Moonlight ended up on top, it is no longer a foregone conclusion that Chloé Zhao s tale about a woman living in her van to escape financial hardship will go the distance. Sitting atop our awards leaderboard all year and sweeping the major prizes, however, is a pretty good indication.Elsewhere, the fascinatingly bizarre internet sensation My Octopus Teacher beat out stiff competition to be crowned Outstanding Documentary, while Golden Globe winners The Crown, The Queen s Gambit, and Schitt s Creek won their respective categories as well.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is officially Certified Fresh! Ahead of the film s release, stars Shameik Moore and Jake Johnson stopped by Rotten Tomatoes for an extended chat with RT Senior Editor Grae Drake. They talked about how happy they were with the overwhelmingly positive response the film has gotten so far, what representation in a movie like this means, why recording scenes together was key, and why Stan Lee s ideas were so revolutionary. Plus, they muse about a Spider-Man Noir spinoff and talk about Johnson s burning desire to fly to Vegas to record with Nic Cage.
On June 22, 36 years have passed since the release of The Karate Kid, the story of an underdog, who explores a life unfamiliar to him, and who — with the help of a grumpy old man — raises himself up to be a champion. The 1984 film, directed by John Avildsen and written by Robert Kamen, had a lasting influence on the movie experience — future sports films would measure their stories against the tenacity and resolve on display in The Karate Kid, and Ralph Macchio, Pat Morita, and William Zabka would enjoy a bright moment in the Hollywood sun.That sunlight faded after a time, as new heroes rose — mutants and aliens boasting super-human powers — and now, as their sweet summer dims, Macchio and Zabka have been coaxed back into the open to revisit their beloved characters of Daniel LaRusso and Johnny Lawrence in YouTube Premium series Cobra Kai, now available on Netflix.Season 1 was a Certified Fresh hit. All 43 critics that reviewed the season gave it a Fresh rating, landing Cobra Kai — the unlikely streaming TV revival of a slumbering monster film franchise — in our prestigious 100% TV season club. The series also brought back other familiar faces from the original movie, including Martin Kove, who played the Cobra Kai dojo s original alpha-male sensei Kreese in the film, and heartwarming tributes to the humble handyman and teacher Miyagi, played by Morita, who died in 2005.With Season 1 and 2 now on Netflix, with a third Cobra Kai season set to premiere in 2021, we sat down with Macchio and Zabka to talk about what got them back to the dojo, and paying homage to Morita.What follows is a history of Cobra Kai (2018-) and reflection upon the series beginnings, drawn from a sit-down interview with Macchio and Zabka.ALSO WATCH: ORAL HISTORY OF THE KARATE KID WITH RALPH MACCHIO AND WILLIAM ZABKA“It became part of the American lexicon at some point.”Ralph Macchio: “I mean, certainly in the earlier years, from the ’80s into the early ’90s, you had all those images of the crane kick, or the lines like, ‘Get him a body bag’ or ‘Sweep the leg.’ ‘Wax on, wax off.’ [The Karate Kid] became part of the American lexicon at some point. But I think the internet, if you will, or the ability for everyone to be able to talk and spread their voice, really is where it amped up to that other level.And then you have the How I Met Your Mother of it all, which was a show that always teed up from Barney Stinson s perspective of the real Karate Kid. And then that became this whole pop culture thing, and then other videos made. And that set the stage for, I think, the series Cobra Kai fan base coming to the table all amped up for decades of discussion. And it s cool that it all collided in such a good big way.”“We have to go convince Ralph Macchio. William Zabka: “Josh Heald, Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg, the creators of Cobra Kai, emailed me and they said, ‘Let’s have lunch and talk to you about a project that we re excited about.’ So I said, ‘OK. Where do you want to meet? There s a Mexican restaurant down the street from my house. Let s meet there.’(Photo by YouTube Premium)So we go in and go and sit at this back table, and the chips come, and they re telling the waiters to leave, and then it was just spitfire, like the three-headed dragon, just a machine gun of information. Like, ‘OK, so here it is. We re huge fans of Karate Kid. We love your work. We want to do this. It s called Cobra Kai. We got the rights of Karate Kid. You re Johnny Lawrence. You re like bad sensei, you re like Walter Matthau in Bad News Bears. You re gonna be the anti-hero.’ And I was like, ‘What? You can t just go do this.’I ve had a lot of ideas presented. I ve thought my own self, like, ‘What can I do more in a satire type of way?’ Because I never could imagine getting the rights to do Johnny Lawrence again. And after The Karate Kid with Jaden Smith came out, I felt like it was really all over. Like, ‘It s moved on.’ … This, it just felt right. And I said, ‘What s the next step?’ They said, ‘Well, we have to go convince Ralph Macchio.’ I said, ‘OK.’”“Oh, crap, I hope this works.”Macchio: “They flew to New York. We met down in Tribeca area, and we spent more than a couple hours. They led off with talking about the themes. They were very focused. I could tell they were nervous, but Hayden, he started right away, and says, Bullying. I would love to have the footage of their pitch to Billy, to convince him, and their pitch to me, because they were different. They didn t start off saying, ‘We want to do the Johnny Lawrence story about Cobra Kai and make him the hero of the story.’ They started talking about themes, so credit them. They did a great job. They were also very well-versed in what they wanted to do, the angle. And they did tell me the title of the show. They weren t trying to say, ‘Oh, it s not gonna be that.’ I knew what it was.My biggest question was they were pitching it as a comedy. I said, ‘Well, where s the funny? What s the tone?’ That was the main question, and where s the Miyagi-isms, and how is that going to be woven into it? Because if it s not, then I m not interested. I need for it to have balance, if you will, across the board of the Karate Kid universe, even though the angle in from the Johnny Lawrence story is super smart.(Photo by YouTube Premium)I felt that they were the guys. I knew from Hot Tub Time Machine and Harold and Kumar that they knew [the humor]. I believed they could write for a young generation and humor and great teen dialogue, which I felt was really important for the show to have that. That s really shedding light in going to season 2 and beyond, because we have this great young cast. I needed to digest it all, but I believed that they were the guys. They wanted to make the show the fans wanted to see, because they were those kids.And then timing: 15 [or] 10 years ago there was no YouTube or Netflix, or a place where you could take a five, six-hour movie and cut it up into parts. We shoot this show and each season is like a full-on movie that you just cut up. You allow the characters to breathe and delve into gray areas, and it s not just so black-and-white and leading to one big quick climax two hours later. All those things together got me to the place of saying, ‘OK, let s do this.’ But not without me closing my eyes, holding my breath, and saying, ‘Oh, crap, I hope this works.’ Now we seem like the two smartest guys in the world.”“We hadn t done this for 35-some years all of sudden, he walks in and it was just on.”Zabka: “My first scene was with Ed Asner, so how s that for day 1 on a show: working with a legend? It s the scene when I walk in and Ed Asner s in my refrigerator. So they just started me at full speed, and it was great, and he was great — I mean really great. What an honor. It felt like he kissed the show in a way, and he blessed it in a way, by his presence being there. It just felt like wow, we re way up here.”(Photo by YouTube Premium)Macchio: “Our first scene together is still one of my favorites in the Cobra Kai series. The first scene I shot was at the end of episode 2, where LaRusso comes into the Cobra Kai dojo and it s a little stare-down, and they question each other, and it just sets up the entire series. That scene was magic, man. We worked together in a film 30-plus years ago, and we ve been friends for years. But that level of chemistry that we have, I didn t know that it was there at the level that it s now turned out to be. It s just a reminder that this project, be it The Karate Kid and Cobra Kai, has some element that the bar just gets raised and we deliver. I m proud of it.”Zabka: “We hadn t done this for 35-some years now, right? And all of sudden, he walks in and it was just on, and everything else was gone, and it was these two characters exist again in this setting. We walked away. We re like, ‘Wow, there s something really happening.’”“It s warm and wonderful and bittersweet. Pat would ve loved this.”Macchio: “All the time, I think about Pat and his performance. Listen, we re not making the show without Pat Morita s performance as Mr. Miyagi, because that s one of the things that elevated that film to what it is today. They re big shoes to fill. I mean, LaRusso has a line like that early in season 2 — he looks at a picture of Miyagi and says, ‘Boy, I ve got big shoes to fill.’He learns very soon that just because you have knowledge of a subject doesn t necessarily mean you can teach it. And Mr. Miyagi was a magical type character who had a special touch, and LaRusso is learning that he might not have that — or he has to find his own. View this post on Instagram Shooting a poignant Miyagi-influenced scene on @cobrakaiseries then, moments later a surprise visit from Pat Morita’s daughter, Aly makes this one of the most memorable days on the show. All the feels from above and beyond. Another stroke of Miyagi Magic graces the day.

亚博的网站多少 Flipping through the pages of Dark Horse Comics’ Resident Alien, it is easy to see why it might become a television show. Written by Peter Hogan with art from Steve Parker, it tells the tale of an alien marooned on Earth who adopts the name Harry Vanderspeigle. His alien physiology gives him the ability to cloak as human and it is a good thing as the mayor and sheriff of nearby Patience, Colorado, ask for his help after their local doctor is murdered. Harry, a fan of cheap crime novels, decides to risk going to town in order to see the corpse. What follows is a curious mixture of police procedural, film noir, and the slow burn quirkiness of Northern Exposure.“I fell in love with the thought of using an alien as eyes into trying to figure out what it s like to be human,” showrunner Chris Sheridan recently told Rotten Tomatoes. “[Harry is] in a place where he s trying to figure out the human condition and people reading it can maybe get an insight of their own based on how Harry is seeing things. So I really fell in love with that.”Of course, the show is different from its source material in may ways. It is faster, quippier, and Harry (Alan Tudyk) is far less genial on television than his comic book counterpart. Harry is, in fact, not exactly a good guy, and his mission on Earth may have dire consequences if he can ever recover the pieces of his ship.“I felt like raising the stakes would be helpful,” Sheridan explained. “Giving Harry a sort of a negative mission and a negativity around him a little bit, gives him a place to go.”That place, of course, is discovering his literally newfound humanity.“Now that he s sort of infected with these emotions, sort of becoming a little more human himself, we can watch his journey and learn a little bit about ourselves as well,” Sheridan explained.As viewers will see, what it means to be human is very much at the core of the series — that is, if those viewers get over the part where Harry tries to kill the one person in town who can see him as an alien: a boy named Max (Judah Prehn). When homicide fails, Harry resorts to psychological warfare.“He becomes a threat to Harry, so he uses that against him,” Tudyk said.As it happens, no one else in town believes Max, which leads to an Invaders From Mars dynamic. Granted, the alien s desire to kill a boy is just one trait that makes Harry fun to watch.
这次国服第二轮测试加入2个LOL手游的专属装备，烈阳魔刃是钢铁烈阳主题的装备，玩家使用技能就会充能，提高自己的暴击几率，最多叠到50%暴击几率，消耗充能造成额外的暴击伤害。不得不说，这件装备太酷了，LOL手游先前的暴击装备是标准三件套，无尽电刀火炮，鞋子是不能卖的，想堆满暴击只能出一件非暴击装，一般就是守护天使和破败王者之刃二选一，这导致射手一般不会堆满暴击几率，而且很难出防御装。这件装备对于部分射手而言，缓解了追求高暴击打法的出装限制，直接无尽电刀和烈阳魔刃就足够了。 (Photo by Ethan Miller/Getty Images/Wizards of the Coast)Netflix has announced that an animated Magic: The Gathering series is in the works, executive produced by Joe and Anthony Russo, hot off their MCU crescendo with Avengers: Endgame. At the same time, Magic, the card game, resolved a decades-long story in May with an all-hands-on-deck epic battle, drawing parallels to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And that s not where the overlap between these two franchises ends. But first we ll get into what exactly Magic: The Gathering is, and why creative guidance from the Russo brothers is a match made in mana heaven.So What s Magic: The Gathering?(Photo by Netflix)Magic: The Gathering is the original trading card game, released in 1993. Players assume the role of powerful wizards called planeswalkers, and eliminate opponents. This is achieved by drawing mana from natural resources and converting that energy into casting spells, creating creatures who do your bidding, and even summoning other planeswalkers. All of these are represented as individual Magic cards. Players create their own deck of cards, draw one card a time into their hand, and take turns performing actions in a dynamic mix of poker bluffs and RPG tabletop.Magic is released in sets typically every three months, each introducing hundreds of newly designed cards into the ecosystem. Sets can teleport players to new fantastic worlds: Magic takes place in a multiverse of disconnected planes you as a planeswalker have the ability to travel to these different realities. And sets can begin a new story, or continue a previous one. Some cards depict the set s lore and plot directly, often with a regular cast of planeswalkers and characters who drive Magic s overarching story, along with tie-in novels and short stories.Why The Russos Brothers Are A Great Magic Match(Photo by Wizards of the Coast) If we can t protect the earth, you can be damn sure we ll gatewatch it.

Before he won an Academy Award with Parasite, director Bong Joon-ho made the politically-charged sci-fi thriller Snowpiercer, which followed a non-stop bullet train filled with the last remnants of humanity as the rest of the planet got turned into an uninhabitable icy wasteland. The result was a widely celebrated film starring Chris Evans, so it s not surprising that we d get a TV adaptation.The first season of TNT s version of Snowpiercer adds a murder mystery on top of the sci-fi tale of class warfare from the movie and the graphic novels by Jacques Lob and Jean-Marc Rochette. The show takes place seven years after the world became a frozen wasteland and the perpetually moving train started going around the globe with the last 3,000 survivors aboard. Andre Layton (Daveed Diggs) is the world s last homicide detective, the de facto leader of the low-class tail-section of the train and the person tasked with solving a murder so the people at the front of the train can keep him in check before he goes and starts a revolution. The person that hires him? Melanie Cavill (Jennifer Connelly), the voice of the train and the right-hand woman of the train s builder, the mysterious Mr. Wilford.Does the series live up to the original movie? Here’s what critics are saying about Snowpiercer season 1:JENNIFER CONNELLY SHINES AS A COMPLICATED FIGURE(Photo by TNT)Playing someone more human than Tilda Swinton did in the film, Connelly nicely juggles Melanie’s icy, passengers-facing facade with the MIT and Yale grad’s warmer private life.– Matt Webb Mitovich, TV LineAs the co-lead, Connelly s Melanie is compelling in a way that is subtly genius, and will probably provoke discourse and political parallels as audiences watch the series. While her character could easily serve as a sort of patron saint for white feminism, her nuances and flaws are peeled back in a fascinating way as the season goes along.– Jenna Anderson, ComicBook.comThe Academy Award winner for A Beautiful Mind is magnificent playing this many-faceted woman. She can be warm and welcoming, commanding and authoritarian or simply menacing in a matter of instants. It s a role that proves, once again, that TV tends to reward established actresses with opportunities hardly found in movies.– Patricia Puentes, CNETTHERE S A MURDER-MYSTERY PLOT, AND IT S KINDA DULL(Photo by Justina Mintz/TNT)Snowpiercer the TV show is a murder mystery — and not an intriguing one by any means — for a large part of its first season, with revolution on the back burner until Layton can figure out who s trying out for an arc on Criminal Minds by hacking people to pieces.– Tim Surette, TV GuideThough Season 1 does revolve around the same tail section rebellion as the film, it takes a half-season detour when Layton, a former homicide detective, gets escorted up-train to solve a grisly execution. For about four episodes, “Snowpiercer” veers way too close to becoming a TNT police procedural, a la “Murder on the Polar Express.”– Ben Travers, IndieWireIt takes the same core concept and expands on it, replacing inexplicable mystery with dull exposition. Some of that was probably necessary in order to sustain an ongoing series, but it misses the point of adapting such strange, singular source material.– Josh Bell, CBREVERYTHING LOOKS MORE SPACIOUS IN THE SERIES(Photo by Justina Mintz/TNT)Snowpiercer definitely captures the aesthetic established in the film, albeit in a largely less-surreal way. The set designs and costumes are an authentic blend of grounded and avant-garde, again contributing to the feeling that the train is truly lived-in. The cinematography also actively helps the series feel less claustrophobic than it could be, which is a blessing for those who are hoping to spend 10 hours with the series.– Jenna Anderson, ComicBook.comAs episodes further explore the train, giant stages, generous lighting, and plenty of wide shots give the impression of more room than there could possibly be, while illustrating admirable production design, vivid costuming, and skillful world-building of its own. This isn’t Bong’s “Snowpiercer,” it’s TNT’s.– Ben Travers, IndieWireVisually, TV’s Snowpiercer is not as claustrophobic as the big-screen version; the individual sets all seem to be as narrow or spacious as they need to be, though always within a certain amount of reason (especially if you are able to buy into the notion of a 1,001-car train).– Matt Webb Mitovich, TV LineTHERE IS PLENTY OF BLOODY ACTION(Photo by Justina Mintz/TNT)The action scenes are efficiently staged, if a little jarring as they are dropped in. There are violent riots, battles between the rebels and the security force, and a stunt in which an unlikely crew member makes a repair while hanging upside down under the train in protective gear that looks like a space suit.– Caryn James, BBCWhat will really keep the audience returning to Snowpiercer week after week are the widely varied action sequences, which will either glue the viewers to the edge of their seats or have them leaping up and shouting at their televisions as the tensions mount.– Michael Ahr, Den of GeekUNLIKE THE MOVIE, IT S WEIRDLY OPTIMISTIC(Photo by Justina Mintz/TNT)In direct opposition to the film, the show Snowpiercer tries to make humanity thrive on one narrow, icy railroad, hurtling toward the future.– Sonia Saraiya, Vanity FairIt bakes in a very earnest sense of hope and optimism. It s clear that many within Snowpiercer are mourning the world that no longer exists, while also hoping that their new normal can be rebuilt into something greater and ideologically better.– Jenna Anderson, ComicBook.comWILL IT PLEASE FANS OF BONG S FILM?(Photo by Radius-TWC)It s a clearly inferior version of something that was already great and never needed to be revisited again. But even without taking the film s existence into consideration, it lacks a certain edge that s needed to stand out.– Tim Surette, TV GuideIf the movie ever left you wanting to dive deeper into the various train sections, or learn more about the how of sustaining a society aboard a perpetually moving vehicle, the series (which is already renewed for Season 2) promises to answer such questions.– Matt Webb Mitovich, TVLineIt doesn’t stay with you the way that Bong’s Snowpiercer did, but where the film was so eager to tear through the train to root out the truth, the show savors the details of life onboard, dissecting personal compromises and minor rebellions.– Sonia Saraiya, Vanity Fair
亚博的网站多少 Joel Meares for Rotten Tomatoes: It’s interesting that you mentioned Goodfellas, because so much of that film is casting as well as everything else. In this film you had an incredible cast. Just how did you get this dream cast together? I wished upon a star. It really is unbelievable. I met Jennifer first, so we cast Jennifer at the end of 2017, so it s been a long journey to try to build the world and fill out the movie. But she was Ramona right out of the gate. I don t usually think about actors when I m writing anything, but the minute I stopped and looked at it, to who was on the page, it was just so clear that Ramona was Jennifer Lopez.And then it was about finding Destiny and finding the right person and the right dynamic and chemistry that they would have with each other. I was so enchanted by Constance s performance in Crazy Rich Asians, and I met her in person and thought she s a really deep, intelligent, funny person that I couldn t wait to see next to Jennifer and see that kind of sisterly dynamic form between them. [Keke Palmer] was someone who I d wanted to work with for a long time; I ve just been a fan of hers. And, you know, Lizzo was someone I had been messaging on Instagram for like a year. So there was a lot of that. There was certainly some chasing that was made a whole lot easier once J-Lo was on board. But yeah, Madeline Brewer was someone… I was just a real big fan of Cam and was hoping that she would be a part of it.Trace Lysette tweeted at me a year ago. We met for lunch and I wrote her this role because I just think she s fabulous – enormous fan of hers. Mette Towley was someone I had met with about a year before that. Jacqueline Frances – who s known as Jacq The Stripper on Instagram – she s a stand-up comedian and a great advocate and voice for the community.So I just felt like I wanted to see all of these people in a locker room together… You know, Cardi s obviously a superstar, but to watch her be just one of the girls in the locker room… [it] was a thrill to see them all interact together.How fun were those locker-room scenes, and the Christmas party scene, to shoot? Because, everyone seems to be having the best time.I mean, I had the best time. I certainly did. Yeah, they were full of joy. Christmas was Christmas. It felt like Christmas morning. It really was just so joyful to have everybody together and felt like story time and everyone s sitting around together, and you know, we ve really tried to keep everything as alive as possible. I encouraged improv. Obviously, there was a script to stick to, but I wanted every scene to feel alive and like people are talking and talking over each other. So we had a tougher time in editing, but we wanted to make sure that we shot that with that feeling of electricity, and that was so much fun to honestly watch everyone interact with each other.The dancing scenes were especially fun. The club was our last week of shooting and everyone was so excited to get there and blow it out. It was pretty enormous. We had 300 extras and 50 dancers and 250 men who were, thankfully, incredibly respectful and had myself and a comfort consultant, Jacq the Stripper, Jacqueline Frances, walking around, making sure everybody felt safe and comfortable while also still trying to capture that aggression and living, breathing, feeling of a strip club. So it was a blast, actually.Thumbnail image: Phil Bray/©Weinstein Company, © Sony Pictures Classics, © Paramount, © Warner Bros. PicturesHustlers is currently in theaters.
