The in-person event will take place at both Union Station in downtown Los Angeles and the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood – as well as at satellite locations across the planet – and nominees who choose to attend are encouraged to wear not-casual attire.Recommended: Download our printable 2021 Oscars BallotRecommended: The Biggest Snubs, Surprises, and Milestones of the 2021 Oscar NominationsRecommended: Where to Watch the 2021 Oscar NomineesRecommended: The 2021 Best Picture Nominees Ranked by Tomatometer We re aiming for a fusion of Inspirational and Aspirational, which in actual words means formal is totally cool if you want to go there, but casual is really not, the letter said.With a slimmed-down attendee list of only presenters, those nominated, and their guest and the event being treated as an active movie set in terms of COVID protocol, producers must have something truly unusual planned, and we re eager to see how it stands up to past events.While we wait to see what s in store on the 2021 red carpet and during the event spectacle, we ve had a look at the Oscars events of the past decade and ranked them below from best to worst.

(Photo by 20th Century Fox)In 1896, a 45-second clip featuring a segment from the book Trilby and Little Billee was produced and started a 123-year old trend of literary works being adapted into films or television shows (and being adapted again and again). With films Little Women (2019), West Side Story (2020, pictured above), Wendy (2020), Emma (2020), and television movie A Christmas Carol (2019) and limited series War of the Worlds (2020) on the horizon, we decided to take a deep dive into the Tomatometer to see which of the literary adaptations are the Freshest, and which are the Rottenest (it’s a word).We pulled the data on 32 books that have at least three feature-length movies (80-plus minutes) or television shows with Tomatometer scores (don’t ask about Gone Girl, it’s only been adapted once) and created a dataset of 145 movies. We chose to exclude comic-book adaptations and movies like Godzilla that have copious reboots — it’s nothing personal, we just wanted to stick with literary adaptations.Quick note: We also excluded short films such as the 16-minute, black-and-white Frankenstein (1910) that was technically the first adaptation of Mary Shelley’s book. Also, Nosferatu, which is basically Bram Stoker’s Dracula – but not. Also, there are many obscure or lost films that don’t have Tomatometer scores and weren’t feature-length, so they were excluded.1. HENRY V RULES OVER ALL ADAPTATIONS WITH A 90% TOMATOMETER AVERAGE(Photo by Netflix)With Laurence Olivier, Kenneth Branagh, David Michôd, and Thea Sharrock directing the Henry V adaptations, it’s no wonder adaptations based on William Shakespeare’s Henry V have the highest Tomatometer average. The first two major adaptations released in 1946 and 1989 have perfect 100% Tomatometer scores, and the 2012 BBC adaptation starring Tom Hiddleston has a 95% Tomatometer score. The lowest-rated adaptation, with a Fresh 70% Tomatometer score, is The King, the Netflix released film starring Timothée Chalamet (who also stars in the latest Little Women adaptation). Henry V has only known Freshness, and that’s why it’s the Fresh king of adaptations.2. WITH A 43% TOMATOMETER AVERAGE, TARZAN ADAPTATIONS KEEP SWINGING ON ROTTEN VINES(Photo by Lionsgate)If it weren t for Tarzan the Ape Man (1932), Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes (1984), and Tarzan (1999), the adaptations of Edgar Rice Burroughs 1912 story would be super-Rotten. The three most recent attempts at retelling the fabled legend — 2013 s Tarzan, 2014 s Tarzan, and 2016 s The Legend of Tarzan — have a 24% Tomatometer average. On a random note, we know George of the Jungle isn’t Tarzan–related; however, Brendan Fraser is the best, and we think you should watch it again.3. THE FIRST ADAPTATION OF LITERARY WORKS HAVE THE BEST TOMATOMETER AVERAGE — WITH AN EXCELLENT 86% AVERAGE(Photo by Walt Disney Pictures)The 86% Tomatometer average for the 32 first adaptations of various literary stories proves it’s good to be first. Only four of these adaptations have Rotten scores — and their average is an almost respectable 50%. The Tomatometer average for the adaptations that follow the firsts falls to a still Fresh 61% (which isn’t bad). While there are superb follow-up adaptations, such as the Jon Favreau–directed The Jungle Book and Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing, there is a drop-off in quality that almost always happens with remakes or sequels, so it’s no shame that the Tomatometer average is lower. It just means there were more opportunities to water down the material (Hello Beastly or A Cinderella Story) or make something that pales in comparison to its predecessors.4. TELEVISED ADAPTATIONS (74%) HAVE A HIGHER TOMATOMETER AVERAGE THAN THEATRICALLY RELEASED ADAPTATIONS (67%)(Photo by BBC One)The 14 literary adaptations in our data set that were released on television or streaming services have a 74% Tomatometer average; whereas movie adaptations have a 67% Tomatometer score. The Fresh 74% average comes from a stacked lineup of adaptations such as 87% Tomatometer-rated War and Peace (2016) starring Lily James and Paul Dano and the epic 88%-rated Pride and Prejudice (1995) miniseries that propelled Colin Firth to superstardom and made striding out of lakes popular. The lowest-rated televised adaptations are the 25% Tomatometer-rated Tarzan (the less said, the better), and the 51%-rated Beauty and the Beast, that was released in 2013 on the CW, and actually got better as it progressed through its four seasons.5. WHAT ARE THE HIGHEST TOMATOMETER-RATED ADAPTATIONS?(Photo by Continental Distributing)Thirteen films and television shows in our data set have 100% scores, which is impressive considering how exclusive the 100% club is. The movies and shows are The Three Musketeers (1921), Frankenstein (1931), Tarzan the Ape Man (1932),  Anna Karenina (1935), The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1939), Pride and Prejudice (1940), Henry V (1946), Oliver Twist (1951), War and Peace (1968), Mickey’s Christmas Carol (1983), Henry V (1989), and Hamlet (2009). There hasn’t been a 100% Tomatometer-rated adaptation in our data set since 2009 (and the last film with the score, Hamlet, has just six reviews). Let’s hope War of the Worlds or A Christmas Carol can join the club.6. WHAT ARE THE LOWEST TOMATOMETER-RATED ADAPTATIONS?(Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures)When it comes to the lowest-rated literary adaptations in our data set, we noticed a trend. Movies that either place the story in modern times or add a new wrinkle often get the lowest scores: 2006 s Material Girls  (loosely based on Jane Austen s Sense and Sensibility) with a 4% score, 2014 s I, Frankenstein at 5%, 2011 s Beastly with 20%, 2011 s Age of the Dragons at 9%, 2018 s Little Women at 27%, 2001 s The Musketeer at 11%, and 2004 s A Cinderella Story at 12%. The tendency to modernize a classic story often results in Tomatometer scores below 30%. Age of the Dragons is Moby Dick, but with dragons. Using modern fight choreography, The Musketeer claimed it was “As you’ve never seen it before” and received an 11% Tomatometer score. Sometimes the approach works – Clueless (79%),  Scrooged (70%), or 10 Things I Hate About You (68%) – and sometimes, well, it does not, which brings us to 7. ADAPTATIONS THAT DRASTICALLY CHANGE THE SOURCE MATERIAL HAVE A 44% TOMATOMETER AVERAGE(Photo by United Artists Films)When compared to the 74% Tomatometer average for the adaptations that stick closely to their source material, the 44% looks really bad; however, a number of movies and television shows that modernized their stories or added zombies into the mix have done pretty well. Movies like Ethan Hawke’s Hamlet from 2000 with an almost-Fresh 57%, 1961 s West Side Story at a Certified Fresh 93%, and Baz Luhrman’s Romeo + Juliet from 1996 with 72% successfully modernized the source material and gave the world some really cool visuals. If you haven’t watched the 45% Tomatometer-rated Pride and Prejudice and Zombies yet, just know that it features Lily James, Matt Smith, Lena Heady, Charles Dance, Sam Riley, Suki Waterhouse, and Bella Heathcote battling zombies. It’s weird, and sorta charming.8. THE LITTLE WOMEN ADAPTATIONS HAVE A 77% TOMATOMETER AVERAGE(Photo by Sony Pictures)Any other upcoming literary adaptations will have a hard time competing with Greta Gerwig’s wonderful take on Little Women. It s earning rave reviews (currently 97% on the Tomatometer with 67 reviews), and looks like it may stand right alongside the 1933 (94%) and 1994 (92%) films and the 2017 television adaptation (84%) as wonderful Little Women adaptations that have big Tomatometer scores. If it weren’t for the 2018 Little Women, which is a modern retelling of the story that has a 27% Tomatometer average, the Little Women set would be competing for the top spot among all the adaptations.9. KENNETH BRANAGH IS THE KING OF LITERARY ADAPTATIONS(Photo by Picturehouse)If you’re looking for someone to direct your literary adaptation you would be wise to consider Kenneth Branagh first. Why? His adaptations for Henry V, Much Ado About Nothing, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, In the Bleak Midwinter (A Midwinter’s Tale), Hamlet, As You Like It, Love’s Labour’s Lost, Cinderella, and Murder on the Orient Express have an average  70.5% Tomatometer score, with Henry V, Much Ado About Nothing, Hamlet, and Cinderella having Tomatometer scores of 85% or higher.10. ANIMATED LITERARY ADAPTATIONS HAVE A 70% TOMATOMETER AVERAGE(Photo by Walt Disney Feature Animation)In the decades-long Tomatometer battle between live-action and animated literary adaptations, the animated adaptations have a slight 4% lead (70% 66%). The averages are close, but the animated films, led by Cinderella (1950), Alice in Wonderland (1951), The Jungle Book (1967), Mickey’s Christmas Carol (1983), Beauty and the Beast (1991), and Tarzan (1999) put animated films in the top spot.What are your favorite literary adaptations?

9.98.2 5月喜迎The Academy Awards will be celebrated on Sunday, February 24 at 5pm PST /8pm EST and broadcast live on ABC.Thumbnail photo by Kristian Dowling/Getty Images
As the 2010s comes to a close, so do a number of beloved comedy series this month — cheers to you, Schitt’s Creek and Bojack Horseman! But not to worry: The rest of January has plenty of returning fan-favorites, plus an ultra-buzzy sci-fi sequel series decades in the making. Catch up on all that and more in this month’s binge guide.Doctor Who 92% (BBC America)What it is: Considering Doctor Who is about nothing less than fantastical adventures through the space-time continuum, it’s difficult to sum up in a sentence or two. But just know that it follows an alien Time Lord who’s known as the Doctor (who’s been inhabited by a number of actors, and now an actress, over the years) and his companions — in the two newest seasons called her “friends.”Why you should watch it: Doctor Who is making a case for being one of those timeless sci-fi properties that’s earned a devout following akin to Star Wars or Star Trek. The decades-spanning series always finds ways to one-up itself, and with Jodie Whittaker making her grand debut last season as the first female Doctor, there’s never been a better time to jump aboard. Season 12 premiered Jan. 1 on BBC America — we recommend you begin with the 2006 relaunch.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, Microsoft, VuduCommitment: Approx. 101 hours (for the first 11 seasons of the relaunch)Schitt's Creek 93% (Pop TV)What it is: Father and son co-creators Dan Levy and Eugene Levy pack in the laughs as the fictional father and son within the Roses, a millionaire mogul family. They are joined by Catherine O’Hara as wacky matriarch Moira and Annie Murphy as the ditzy daughter Alexis. When they lose their fortune, they’re forced to relocate to their sole possession: the town of Schitt’s Creek, which was bought as a gag gift years prior. The ensuing five seasons follows the family as they adjust to their new life and learn to call that small, unfortunately-named town home.Why you should watch it: We love a success story, and Schitt’s Creek has one of our favorite little-show-that-could narratives of the decade. While always well-received and enjoyed by its niche Pop TV and CBC audience, this Canadian television series didn’t really bloom until hitting Netflix, where its bingeable 30-minute episodes — full, in equal measure, of both humor and heart — were eaten up by American audiences who became eager for more. Cut to 2018 Emmy nominations for best comedy series and lead actors Eugene Levy and O’Hara, and we’ve no doubt that season 6 will wrap the series on a touching — and hilarious — high note. Season 6 premieres Jan. 6 on Pop TV.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, Microsoft, Netflix, VuduCommitment: Approx. 24 hours (for the first five seasons)The New Pope 90% (HBO)What it is: From the mind of Italian filmmaker Paolo Sorrentino, The New Pope is a John Malkovich–starring follow-up to The Young Pope, which dramatizes the controversial rise of Pope Pius XIII (Jude Law), the world’s first American Pope.Why you should watch it: As the first Italian series to be nominated at the Primetime Emmy Awards and the first television series to host its world premiere at the Venice International Film Festival, The Young Pope is nothing if not cinematic in scope and aesthetic — and led by Law and Diane Keaton on season 1, it’s got the star power to back it all up. Season 2 premieres Jan. 13 on HBO.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, HBO Now, Microsoft, VuduCommitment: Approx. 10 hours (for the first season)The Magicians 91% (SyFy)What it is: Based on the acclaimed fantasy series by Lev Grossman and from producers Michael London, Janice Williams, John McNamara, and Sera Gamble, The Magicians follows Quentin Coldwater (Jason Ralph) after he enrolls in Brakebills University for Magical Pedagogy in New York. What follows for the young magician is a collision between our world and a threatening fantasy world with nothing less at stake than reality as we know it. Why you should watch it: The Magicians has all the straight-up drama that comes with magic, secret academies, and battles between good and evil — and it’s a whole lot of crazy fun, too. Season 5 premieres Jan. 15 on Syfy.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNow, Google Play, Microsoft, Netflix, VuduCommitment: Approx. 39 hours (for the first four seasons)Sex Education 96% (Netflix)What it is: This British teen dramedy from creator Laurie Nunn tells the story of a high school outsider who, buoyed by the tricks he’s picked up from his sex therapist helicopter mom, begins his own sex therapy practice out of an abandoned bathroom — to booming results.Why you should watch it: You’d be hard-pressed to find a 2019 series whose ensemble was quite as immediately loveable — though a bit chaotic — as this one. The pitch-perfect cast is led by Asa Butterfield as Otis and a scene-stealing, never-better (if you can believe it) Gillian Anderson as his mother, Jean; the nuances of their fraught and evolving relationship paired with the high school dramas of puberty and beyond make this a must-watch. Season 2 premieres Jan. 17 on Netflix.Where to watch: NetflixCommitment: Approx. 8 hours (for the first season)The Bold Type 91% (Freeform)What it is: With industry-specific dramas pulled directly from Cosmopolitan editor-in-chief (and series executive producer) Joanna Coles’ decades-spanning career, The Bold Type follows the day-to-day adventures of three millennial New Yorkers and best friends who work together at the fictional fashion magazine Scarlet.Why you should watch it: From Ugly Betty to The Devil Wears Prada, the New York fashion magazine and media industry has proven a fine playing field for high-stakes drama and fantastic wardrobes. The Bold Type dives right in and still finds ways to make this well-documented world newly exciting. That’s largely thanks to a stellar cast led by Katie Stevens as Jane Sloan, one-third of the BFF and co-worker trio that also includes Aisha Dee as Kat Edison and Meghann Fahy as Sutton Brady. Season 4 premieres Jan. 23 on Freeform.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNow, Google Play, Hulu, Microsoft, VuduCommitment: Approx. 21 hours (for the first three seasons)Star Trek: The Next Generation 91% (CBS All Access)What it is: To catch up on the Star Trek universe as shown in this month s Star Trek: Picard, we’re recommending you revisit The Next Generation (and perhaps the franchises 2002 feature film, Nemesis) for a wintry binge. As the series that first introduced the USS Enterprise’s Captain Picard, played by the legendary Sir Patrick Stewart, TNG sets the stage for the 20-years-later action that befalls the captain after he disassociates from Starfleet.Why you should watch it:  While the Picard creative team, including showrunner Alex Kurtzman, have emphasized that this series will be accessible to newbie Trekkies, a binge of TNG will inform your foundational knowledge of those revisiting the Picard world (including Data and William Riker from the trailer alone) while giving you a fine excuse to watch a classic!Set 20 years after Picard goes into retirement and isolation, the new CBS All Access series marks the grand return of one of today’s most iconic heroes. The story picks up with the unexpected arrival of Dahj (Isa Briones), a young woman who turns to Picard for help following an enormous trauma, in turn reigniting the former captain’s desire to return to Starfleet. Season 1 of Star Trek: Picard premieres Jan. 23 on CBS All Access.Where to watch: Amazon, CBS All Access, FandangoNOW, Google Play, Hulu, Microsoft, Netflix, VuduCommitment: Approx. 132 hours (for all seven seasons)Shrill 87% (Hulu)What it is: Based on the hit book by Lindy West and co-created by Alexandra Rushfield and Aidy Bryant (who also stars), this series puts a feminist, body-positive spin on the classic workplace drama as our hero Annie Easton (Bryant) finds her voice as a journalist and learns to love herself in unexpected ways.Why you should watch it: Saturday Night Live stalwart Bryant is finally given a star-making vehicle with Shrill, which earnestly and humorously portrays the daily microaggressions plus-size women face in the office and beyond. Season 2 premieres Jan. 24 on Hulu.Where to watch: Amazon, FandangoNOW, Google Play, Hulu, Microsoft, VuduCommitment: Approx. 3 hours (for the first season)BoJack Horseman 93% (Netflix)What it is: BoJack Horseman (voiced by Will Arnett) was once the hottest horse in town, star of a hit sitcom and riding high in Tinseltown. Fast-forward 20 years, though, and he’s a depressive has-been — and our titular protagonist of this hit Netflix comedy.Why you should watch it: It’s not often that an alcoholic horse and a fictionalized Hollywood full of as many flawed humans as talking animals teaches you about yourself, but this one does — trust us! There’s reason BoJack’s blend of pitch-black humor and weighty human circumstance has gained such a cult following over the last five seasons. The second half of season 6 — the series’ final episodes — premieres Jan. 31 on Netflix.Where to watch: NetflixCommitment: Approx. 34 hours (for the first five seasons and first half of season 6)Like this?

Today s Ketchup brings you another 10 headlines from the world of film development news, covering movies with new roles for Kevin Hart, Angelina Jolie, and Lupita Nyong o.This WEEK S TOP STORYSONIC THE HEDGEHOG TRAILER BACKLASH SPARKS REDESIGN(Photo by Paramount Pictures)Let s start this story off by saying Paramount Pictures should ve seen this one coming. Back in December, the first silhouetted look at their movie version of Sonic the Hedgehog led to a flurry of mostly-not-very-positive social media reactions, mostly about Sonic s legs. Keep in mind that Sonic the Hedgehog is a character that s been depicted in dozens of video games, so there s an established Sonic look. This week, the Sonic the Hedgehog trailer debuted, and the collective fan backlash against Sonic s design was even louder this time. (The eyes are too small, the nose is at the wrong angle, and the teeth. Where to even begin on the teeth?) The Sonic the Hedgehog missteps are only accentuated by the timing of the trailer in the same week as the first Pokemon Detective Pikachu reviews, as that film has not one but dozens of video game characters that look pretty much exactly like they do in the games. The good news, however, is that Sonic the Hedgehog director Jeff Fowler relatively quickly responded on Twitter, The message is loud and clear you aren t happy with the design you want changes. It s going to happen. Everyone at Paramount Sega are fully committed to making this character the BEST he can be. Sonic the Hedgehog is scheduled for release on November 8, 2019 (up against Last Christmas, the WWII drama Midway, and The Shining sequel Doctor Sleep).Fresh Developments1. ANGELINA JOLIE TAKES ON THOSE WHO WISH ME DEAD (Photo by Walt Disney Studios)If you ve heard about one new movie project for Angelina Jolie lately, it was probably Marvel Studios The Eternals, but that movie doesn t start filming until this September. That leaves a few months for Jolie to work on another project, and it s going to be Those Who Wish Me Dead, the next film from director Taylor Sheridan (Wind River, writer of Sicario and Hell or High Water). Adapted from the novel by Michael Koryta, Those Who Wish Me Dead has a story that s not easily described in just a few words, but we ll just tease that it involves Angelina Jolie working on a forest fire lookout tower and a 14-year-old witness to a brutal murder who s in the woods as part of a witness protection program. Jolie s costars will include Tyler Perry, Jon Bernthal (The Walking Dead, Netflix s The Punisher) and Nicholas Hoult (About a Boy, Warm Bodies).2. OSCAR-WINNER OLIVIA COLMAN S THE FAVOURITE FOLLOW-UP (Photo by Atsushi Nishijima/Fox Searchlight Pictures)Every year, it s interesting to see what new projects the Academy Award winners will be doing next. Olivia Colman s speech as the Best Actress winner for The Favourite was one of this year s highlights, and now we know what s on the horizon for her. Colman and Anthony Hopkins (who won his own Best Actor Academy Award for Silence of the Lambs) are teaming up for a British drama called The Father, based on a play. Hopkins will play a mischievous and highly independent man who, as he ages, refuses all assistance from his daughter (Colman). Olivia Colman will also soon be seen in Netflix s The Crown as the next actress to play the series Queen Elizabeth II after Claire Foy.3. GREEN BOOK DIRECTOR GOING ON THE GREATEST BEER RUN EVER (Photo by Frederic J. Brown/Getty Images)Speaking of follow-ups to this year s Academy Award winners, let s move on to Green Book, which won three of the year s major Oscars: Best Original Screenplay, Best Supporting Actor, and the big prize, Best Picture. Director Peter Farrelly s Tomatometer has more Rotten splotches than Fresh ones, but now he s got a Best Picture to his credit. This week, Farrelly signed on to write and direct an adaptation of the non-fiction book The Greatest Beer Run Ever: A True Story of Friendship Stronger Than War. Like Green Book, this film will be set in the 1960s, as John Chickie Donohue sets off to Vietnam to reunite over some beers with friends who are otherwise pre-occupied with fighting the Vietnam War (yes, really). In related news, one of the Green Book producers confirmed this week that the film s target audience was older white people. 4. LUPITA NYONG O S WACKY OUTER SPACE BEAUTY PAGEANT COMEDY (Photo by Presley Ann/Getty Images)Lupita Nyong o most recently starred in Jordan Peele s Us ( Certified Fresh at 94%), which is still in release and continuing its way up the global box office top 10 for 2019 (it s currently at #8). Nyong o recently wrapped filming of a zombie comedy called Little Monsters (costarring Josh Gad), which will premiere on Hulu, and this week, she signed on for another film from the same writer/director. The science fiction comedy is currently untitled, but it was previously called Miss Universe, and has a log line that compares it to Men in Black meets Miss Congeniality. So, from those two hints, we can probably guess that it somehow involves a beauty pageant of various aliens, including at least one human (unless Lupita s playing one of the aliens). Or maybe we re reading those hints all wrong, and it s about a secret police force that protects us from beauty pageants.5. THE SUICIDE SQUAD CASTING UPDATE: RATCATCHER AND POLKA-DOT MAN (Photo by Ben Rothstein/Marvel Studios)When Disney fired director James Gunn from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 last year (before changing their mind and hiring him back), they left his options open just long enough for Warner Bros. to swoop in and hire him for the soft reboot of The Suicide Squad (8/6/2021). Just based on what we know so far, it s easy to spot the differences between the Rotten 2016 version and what Gunn s planning. We don t know yet who s going to play King Shark (unless he s just a big CGI monster), but this week, two of the other new villains-turned-heroes were cast, and neither are big stars. David Dastmalchian is not yet a household name, but you might recognize him from roles in The Dark Knight, Prisoners, and the Ant-Man movies, and now he s joining The Suicide Squad as the Polka-Dot Man, a supervillain with a costume with super-powered polka dots (yes, really). For Ratcatcher (another fairly obscure villain), Gunn is going with a relative newcomer, Portugal s Daniela Melchior. As for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Gunn is expected to direct it after The Suicide Squad (8/6/2021), which suggests the earliest we might see it would be sometime in 2022.Rotten Ideas4. KEVIN HART TAKING ON THE EXTREME JOB OF REMAKING A KOREAN COMEDY (Photo by Warner Bros.)Earlier in his film career, Kevin Hart s Tomatometer was mostly dominated by Rotten splats, and to his credit, he s been starting to turn things around lately with films like Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (Certified Fresh at 76%) and Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie (Certified Fresh at 88%). We re not going to give Kevin Hart the benefit of the doubt just yet (*cough* The Upside *cough*), but we re willing to call this week s news only borderline Rotten. Hart is producing and will probably star in  an English-language remake of the hit South Korean comedy Extreme Job. If he does sign on to star, Hart would be playing a narcotics detective who goes undercover at a fried chicken restaurant to stake out a suspected crime gang, but the stakeout takes a turn when the operation results in unexpected business success. The original version has become South Korea s top-grossing film of all time since its release just a few months ago.3. THIRD FANTASTIC BEASTS DELAYED UNTIL 2021(Photo by Warner Bros.)Warner Bros. might be forgiven for thinking that they had a sure thing with their Fantastic Beasts franchise. Before last year s Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindlewald, the Harry Potter franchise s films had always been Certified Fresh and blockbuster box office hits, collectively earning upwards of billion worldwide. That s not to say The Crimes of Grindlewald was exactly a bomb, considering it earned 3 million worldwide, but those results were probably disappointing. Warner Bros. had been planning on releasing each new film every two years in odd years (2016, 2018, 2020, etc), but this week, the studio pushed Fantastic Beasts 3 back a year to November 12, 2021 instead. Warner Bros. executive Toby Emmerich explained the move by saying that they want to give the filmmakers time and space to allow their artistry to truly flourish and deliver the best possible film to our fans. It s not yet known if Johnny Depp will be returning for the third film.2. THIS WEEK IN VIDEO GAME MOVIES: SAINTS ROW(Photo by John Baer/Overture Films courtesy Everett Collection)If the early reviews are any indication, next week s Pokemon Detective Pikachu may finally break the long-standing streak of Rotten Tomatometers for movies based on video games. That would be great and all, but that still leaves dozens of Rotten ones to account for. One director hoping to contribute to an upward trend is F. Gary Gray (Straight Outta Compton, The Fate of the Furious), who previously had been trying to get a Kane and Lynch movie going. Gray is now attached to direct a film based on the video game franchise Saints Row, which, over the course of several games, began with the Grand Theft Auto template and took it to increasingly ridiculous settings and themes. How far Gray is willing to go is anybody s guess.1. JENNIFER GARNER HEADING TO FANTASY CAMP WITH I FEEL PRETTY CREATIVES (Photo by 20th Century Fox Film Corp.)To her credit, Jennifer Garner continues to find regular work even as the film industry arguably moves further away from the sorts of movies that she s previously been known for. Unfortunately, for her next film, Garner is signing up to work with two screenwriters whose work has never earned a Fresh score; they haven t even scored above 46% since the 1990s. Jennifer Garner is signed to star in Fantasy Camp, a comedy set up at mini-major STXfilms, the company behind the same creative team s most recent film, I Feel Pretty (Rotten at 35%). Garner will play a woman who goes to a reunion at the theater camp of her youth, Camp Footlights, where she will get the chance to challenge her fears, live out her dreams and finally take the stage.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is a wonder for many reasons, not least of which is the way it wove together an intricate continuity across all of its movies. Throughout 23 films (and counting), there are crossover characters, intersecting storylines, and resonant names, locations, and even brands. Of course, when you step back, you realize that the MCU was only doing what comic books have been doing in print for decades. Take another step back, and you’ll notice that what they’ve done isn’t all that unique to movies, either. Because Quentin Tarantino, for one, has been doing it for decades, too.From his earliest days as a struggling screenwriter to his iconic and era-defining films, Tarantino has built his own world of interconnected characters and original brands. In honor of the 25th anniversary of his legendary opus Pulp Fiction (released October 14, 1994), let’s take a look at the QTCU the Quentin Tarantino Cinematic Universe. () A short film co-written, directed, and starring Tarantino while he was famously working at Video Archives in Manhattan Beach, California (it’s no longer there, so don’t plan a visit), My Best Friend’s Birthday only exists in a truncated 36-minute cut because large parts of it were destroyed in a fire. Still, the seeds of the QTCU are there. For one, Quentin plays a character named Clarence who, early on, discusses his love of Rockabilly music and Elvis’ acting ability. This would, of course, foreshadow Christian Slater’s character in True Romance, a script written by Tarantino but directed by the late Tony Scott. In Birthday, Tarantino’s Clarence hires a call girl to show his friend a good time on his special day a sequence of events that would be flipped in True Romance, when Slater’s Clarence finds himself on the receiving end of a birthday call girl surprise.Reservoir Dogs (1992) 92%Tarantino s signature work, the movie that launched him as a filmmaker. In this tale of a jewel heist gone wrong, the audience is treated to flashbacks that fill in the stories of each of the movie’s black clad, code-named criminals. We find out that Mr. White (Harvey Keitel) used to run with a partner named Alabama. Of course, a woman named Alabama Whitman (later, Worley) is seen getting a taste for a life of crime in True Romance, the Tony Scott film that Tarantino wrote (see below). We also learn that Mr. Blonde (Michael Madsen) is named Vic Vega, as in the brother of John Travolta’s Vincent Vega in Pulp Fiction.True Romance (1993) 93%(Photo by Warner Bros. courtesy Everett Collection)Apart from the obvious connections to earlier films the Rockabilly-loving Clarence and call girl-turned-crook Alabama there is a more subtle cinematic link in Tony Scott s Tarantino-penned action adventure. The movie climaxes with a drug deal in the hotel suite of big time movie producer Lee Donowitz (Saul Rubinek, channeling real life producer Joel Silver). Donowitz is a producer of war movies fitting because his father, Donny Donowitz, fought in WWII as part of the Inglourious Basterds. You might remember him as the baseball bat-wielding avenger known as “The Bear Jew” (played by Eli Roth).Pulp Fiction (1994) 92%(Photo by Miramax Films)Pulp Fiction, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, is arguably the Iron Man of the QTCU, because it’s really the one that takes the threads and begins to weave them together. The film introduces us to several brand names that would become central players in Tarantino’s world, starting with “that Hawaiian burger joint” Big Kahuna Burger Samuel L. Jackson’s Jules takes the world’s most intimidating bite of one of these burgers and washes it down with a tasty beverage from the place early in the movie. Later, Bruce Willis’ Butch Coolidge orders a pack of Red Apple cigarettes, a brand that shows up in just about every subsequent QT movie. Finally, Christopher Walken’s Captain Koons he of the legendary “gold watch” speech is also a descendant of “Crazy” Craig Koons, one of Django’s bounties in Django Unchained.Natural Born Killers (1994) 49%(Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures)Although Natural Born Killers was directed by Oliver Stone, the script was pure Tarantino. We mentioned earlier the brother connection between Vic and Vincent Vega, but there is another set of brothers that was first introduced in Reservoir Dogs, too. In Dogs, Vic complains about a pain-in-the-ass parole officer named Seymour Scagnetti (we never actually see him), whose own brother, Jack, would show up in Natural Born Killers (played by Tom Sizemore).Four Rooms (1995) 14%In the Tarantino-written and -directed segment of this anthology film, the characters are seen smoking Red Apple cigarettes. Tarantino’s character also refers to his drink as a “tasty beverage,” which echoes the same colorful turn of phrase Jules used in Pulp Fiction.From Dusk Till Dawn (1996) 62%Tarantino wrote the script for this Robert Rodriguez-directed horror film and peppered in some of his signature touches. There are Red Apple cigarettes present and accounted for, and George Clooney’s Seth Gecko at one point makes a run for Big Kahuna Burgers. The movie also introduces gravelly-voiced, no-nonsense Texas Ranger Earl McGraw (played by Michael Parks), who would become a key player in the QTCU. It’s also worth noting that the movie features yet another pair of brothers (Seth and his brother, Richie, played by Tarantino) who have a thing for black suits.Jackie Brown (1997) 87%(Photo by Miramax Films)Beware of people who claim that, because it was based on an Elmore Leonard novel and not an original Tarantino idea, there are no overt connections to the QTCU in Jackie Brown. They’re just not paying attention. Midway through the film, we see Jackie in the Del Amo Mall food court, enjoying a meal from Teriyaki Donut the same fictional fast food franchise whose food Ving Rhames’ Marcellus Wallace is carrying when Butch Coolidge runs him down in Pulp Fiction. In a second food court scene not long after, we not only see Jackie indulging in Teriyaki Donut again, but her accomplice Sheronda (LisaGay Hamilton) sits down at her table with a tray full of food from Acuña Boys, which would later be referenced in Kill Bill Vol. 2 and appear a couple of times in Grindhouse.Kill Bill: Vol. 1 (2003) 85% and Kill Bill: Vol. 2 (2004) 84%(Photo by Miramax Films)We’ll treat this kung fu-inspired magnum opus as one film, with plenty of easter eggs to link it to the larger QTCU. For one, if you look at The Bride’s (Uma Thurman) old gang, the Deadly Viper Assassination Squad, you’ll notice that they all fit a little too easily into Mia Wallace’s description of her failed TV pilot, Fox Force Five the blonde leader, the Japanese kung fu master, the black demolition expert, the French seductress, and Mia’s. character, the deadliest woman in the world with a knife (or sword?). The first cop on the scene after the Bride’s wedding day massacre is, of course, Earl McGraw, and Red Apple and Big Kahuna also make appearances. And remember Acuña Boys from Jackie Brown? In Vol. 2, they happen to be the name of the gang that Michael Parks Esteban Vihaio runs.Grindhouse (2007) 84%(Photo by The Weinstein Co./Dimension)In both the Tarantino portion of this double feature homage, Death Proof, and the Rodriguez portion, Planet Terror, there are connections to the QTCU. Big Kahuna burgers are mentioned, and Red Apple cigarettes are smoked. On top of that, an ad for Acuña Boys Authentic Tex-Mex Food first glimpsed in Jackie Brown   pops up during intermission, and one of Stuntman Mike s early victims, Vanessa Ferlito s Arlene, can be seen sipping from an Acuña Boys cup. Texas lawman Earl McGraw also reappears, along with his son, Ed, and we learn there is a sister named Dakota, too, who features in Planet Terror. As kind of a bonus, Rosario Dawson’s Abernathy has a familiar ringtone on her phone  it’s the same melody whistled by Elle Driver (Darryl Hannah) in Kill Bill Vol. 1.Inglourious Basterds (2009) 89%(Photo by Francois Duhamel/©Weinstein Company)In addition to Donny Donowitz, Michael Fassbender’s English soldier-turned-spy Archie Hicox has deep ties to the QTCU, it turns out. Late in the old west-set Hateful Eight, it is revealed that Tim Roth’s Oswaldo Mobray is actually a wanted man named “English Pete” Hicox, Archie’s great-great-grandfather.Django Unchained (2012) 87%(Photo by The Weinstein Co.)We’ve already mentioned “Crazy” Craig Koons, but there is another deep cut reference to Django hidden in an earlier Tarantino movie. In Kill Bill Vol. 2, Bill’s brother Budd (played by Michael Madsen also another pair of QT brothers!) buries the Bride alive in the grave of Paula Schultz. This is the lonely final resting place for the wife of bounty hunter Dr. King Schultz (Christoph Waltz) in Django. The Hateful Eight (2015) 74%(Photo by The Weinstein Company)In addition to the Hicox family tree, Red Apple tobacco the early version of the soon-to-be ubiquitous (in the QTCU, anyway) cigarette brand makes a couple of appearances here. Demián Bichir s Bob smokes a Manzana Roja right after the intermission, and Channing Tatum gets a custom-rolled Red Apple cigarette his favorite from Dana Gourrier s Miss Minnie.Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood (2019) 85%(Photo by Columbia Pictures)At one point in Kill Bill Vol. 2, The Bride drives a blue Volkswagen Karmann Ghia. That same car shows up (driven by Brad Pitt’s Cliff Booth) in Hollywood. And not only do Booth and Leonardo DiCaprio’s Rick Dalton smoke Red Apples (of course), but there’s an end-credits scene in the movie that shows Dalton doing a TV commercial for the cigarette brand.Pulp Fiction was released in theaters on October 14, 1994.

Everyone is talking about Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom for one reason above all: the Netflix Original features the final performance by Chadwick Boseman, who shockingly died of cancer over the summer. And as the first reviews arrive for the biographical drama, based on August Wilson’s 1982 play of the same name, Boseman continues to receive the majority of attention, mostly in the form of praise for his last work. But there are other reasons to look forward to the movie, including Viola Davis’ performance as the titular “Mother of the Blues” as well as Wilson’s powerful writing and some unforgettable moments as directed by George C. Wolfe.Here’s what critics are saying about Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom:Let’s get right to it: How is Boseman’s final performance?Boseman is a revelation.  Fionnuala Halligan, Screen InternationalOn a whole other level here… Watching him in this film is an absolutely hypnotic experience.  Joey Magidson, Awards RadarBoseman’s performance really is the stuff of acting legend…[he] will make you feel like screen actors rarely are able to do.  J. Don Birnam, Splash ReportThe confidence and composure of the icons he has played before has melted away into a kind of nervous insecurity we’ve never seen in the actor.  Peter Debruge, VarietyThere are times where you have to remind yourself to breathe watching his performance.  Matt Goldberg, ColliderMa Rainey is a hilarious film, and Boseman, through his coy smile, and displaying his full range, is equally hilarious in it.  Robert Daniels, IGN MoviesWhat a glorious performance to go out on.  Peter Bradshaw, GuardianIt’s no stretch to say his last performance may be his finest.  Odie Henderson, by David Lee/Netflix)Does Boseman’s death cast a shadow over the achievement?We should have been just getting started with him. Sadly, this will have to stand as the crowning performance of his career. Joey Magidson, Awards RadarChadwick Boseman s astonishingly dynamic and charismatic performance reminds us of a promising future that can no longer come to pass. I can hardly think of a more fitting final act for his career than this. Shane Slater, Film ActuallyIt’s an Oscar-worthy performance in what should have been a long career filled with Oscars. Matt Goldberg, ColliderMa Rainey’s Black Bottom is such a difficult movie to watch. While watching, it’s impossible not to face facts: this is it… turns out Boseman did have one last gift for us. Mike Ryan, UproxxBoseman would cast a huge shadow over the film even if he hadn’t tragically passed away earlier this year at the age of 43. Alonso Duralde, The WrapEven if Boseman were alive, his name would still certainly be on the shortlist for an Oscar nomination. Gabriella Geisinger, Digital SpyHow is Viola Davis?Davis as the titular Ma Rainey gives one of the performances of her career. Gabriella Geisinger, Digital SpyIt is one of the best performances of Davis’ career — a career already filled with many such depictions. J. Don Birnam, Splash ReportThe most engrossing, inspired transformation of her career. Eric Kohn, IndieWireHer performance is both otherworldly and all too human. Oliver Jones, ObserverIt’s a delectably grand performance. Odie Henderson, RogerEbert.comAs Ma Rainey, Davis confirms how wide-ranging her talent is. Fionnuala Halligan, Screen InternationalRyan FujitaniIs the rest of the cast good?The supporting cast deserves acclaim for their work. Matt Goldberg, ColliderWhile Boseman and Davis are the stars, don’t sleep on Colman Domingo and Glynn Turman, who are excellent in their supporting parts. Joey Magidson, Awards RadarDomingo gives the character a quiet authority that is essential to the band dynamic and elevates not just Boseman but Davis performance as well. Jason Guerrasio, InsiderMuch will be made of Boseman and Davis’ work here, but Turman’s excellent work is also worthy of notice. Odie Henderson, RogerEbert.comThe great Glynn Turman. This is the supporting performance that will get the awards attention… This is Turman’s moment even more than it is Boseman’s. Roger Friedman, Showbiz 411How is the film as an adaptation?You can feel the full force of Wilson’s play barrel down from the stage and into your living room. Oliver Jones, ObserverThis Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom feels not just adapted but accelerated, as if it were racing to meet the deadline its own characters keep putting off. Justin Chang, Los Angeles TimesRuben Santiago-Hudson, who adapted the play for the screen, honors Wilson’s eloquent and vernacular dialogue, which includes moments of wit. Caryn James, BBC.comTaking a play and turning it into a film has inherent challenges… The ability it shows to overcome that potential challenge makes it a superior work to the already well done Fences. Joey Magidson, Awards RadarWolfe and screenwriter Ruben Santiago-Hudson have put the play into the movie, rather than vice versa. Eric Kohn, IndieWire(Photo by David Lee/Netflix)Does it transcend its stage play origins?Ma Rainey feels fresh as a film. Fionnuala Halligan, Screen InternationalWhile you can feel the stage origins, over time, that stuff kind of dissipates when the performances are so good. Matt Goldberg, ColliderThere is a static quality to some of the back and forth, but… the contained staginess of the movie comes off as welcome, intimate and, in the hands of these boldly empathetic performers, quite thrilling. Oliver Jones, Observer[Santiago-Hudson] and Wolfe do what they can to open up the play but the movie still remains, in a good way, stagey. There’s no way around it. Roger Friedman, Showbiz 411The characters move through space as if they were blocked for the stage, and it s slightly distracting to watch. Gabriella Geisinger, Digital SpyWilson’s dialogue is very written sounding, very theatrical, and it almost feels like the entire ensemble are acting on a podium rather than attempting to deliver a legitimate feature film. Jordan Ruimy, World of ReelHow does the film look?Right away, it was hard not to notice how striking the imagery of this film is throughout. Aaron Neuwirth, We Live EntertainmentTobias Schilesser, who typically shoots action or showy movies alongside the likes of Peter Berg and Bill Condon, delivers a radiant cinematography. J. Don Birnam, Splash ReportTobias A. Schliesser’s vibrant cinematography works wonders in up close, but has a flatter quality in some of the interstitial moments between the big set pieces. Eric Kohn, IndieWire(Photo by David Lee/Netflix)Are there any criticisms?Despite being the titular character, Ma Rainey doesn’t feel like the protagonist, which is disappointing given that this film provides a rare look into Black American queer history. Flora Spencer Grant, Little White LiesThe film lacks a definitive center to ground its strengths… [It] gets so caught up in its busy dialogue-driven sequences that the purpose behind them can often feel quite thin. Matt Conway, Battle Royale With CheeseThe film sometimes fails to keep your attention, to keep you engaged in the act of watching. Gabriella Geisinger, Digital SpyDoes it feel timely?Even though Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom is set over 90 years ago, it feels unsettlingly timely in the way that all historical films which deal with racism will until these issues are meaningfully addressed. Flora Spencer Grant, Little White LiesIt’s a story of Black lives and Black music in the early 20th century that has lost little of its significance in the 21st. Justin Chang, Los Angeles TimesNavigating an entertainment system that’s rigged against people of colour, ownership over one’s art, and knowing your worth are all things that Black artists still grapple with today. Amon Warmann, Empire Magazine(Photo by David Lee/Netflix)How is the ending?Wilson does not write happy plays, and this one ends on a note that sounds like the weary sigh on a sad trombone. Peter Debruge, VarietyIf you feel a sorrowful pit in your stomach at the conclusion of the proceedings, you will have Boseman’s characterization of Wilson’s heartbreaking character to thank for it. J. Don Birnam, Splash ReportThe climactic act of violence has been staged in oddly stilted terms, though the emotion resonates because of its wider context… [It’s] one of the great cinematic moments of the year. Eric Kohn, IndieWireMa Rainey s Black Bottom premieres on Netflix on Friday, December 18, 2020.On an Apple device? Follow Rotten Tomatoes on Apple News. On November 27th, 1985, audiences flocked to theaters to root for perennial underdog boxer Rocky Balboa yet again in Rocky IV, the third installment in the successful franchise to be both written and directed by its star, Sylvester Stallone. In the film, Rocky faces off against Russian boxer Ivan Drago (Dolph Lundgren), a square-jawed, granite-fisted giant who kills Rocky’s best friend (and former rival) Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) during an ill-fated exhibition match. Stallone clearly drew inspiration for the film from another legendary fight of the 20th century: In 1938, American boxer Joe “The Brown Bomber” Louis faced German boxing champ Max Schmeling in a rematch heard around the world, as 70,000 screaming fans at New York’s Yankee Stadium watched Louis redeem an earlier loss to Schmeling and secure a victory not just for himself, but for American democracy. Swap out the Nazi-era Germans for Cold War Russians and add a tragic death for dramatic effect, and that basic outline should sound pretty familiar.Some might argue that Rocky IV s jingoistic leanings and adherence to music-driven montages make it one of the lesser entries in the franchise. But after three films that saw Rocky evolve from a likable, leg-breaking enforcer to a world heavyweight boxing champ, this sequel earns its right to strip back its plot and simply focus on Rocky duking it out with a Russian titan for 15 rounds. Though it failed to strike a chord with critics, Rocky IV was a blockbuster smash that pulled in 2 million at the domestic box office (adjusted for inflation), and it remains a culturally relevant fan favorite 35 years after its release. Here s why it still resonates with fans so much more than any of the other sequels.Apollo Creed s Brutal and Surprising Death Still HurtsThough the MGM accountants tallying the box office totals and home video sales most likely didn t mind, Stallone regrets killing off Apollo Creed to fuel Rocky IV s revenge narrative, and it s not hard to see why. Rocky and Apollo had endured so much punishment by 1985 that audiences had come to accept their skulls were essentially concussion-proof, so Apollo s death at the hands of Ivan Drago was shocking. Sure, even those who didn’t watch the incredibly spoilery movie trailer could have guessed that the overly confident Apollo was going to lose to Drago, thereby setting up a rematch. But it’s hard to believe that any popcorn-munching audience expected to see Rocky cradling a dead Apollo in his arms while a murderous Russian dispassionately quips, If he dies, he dies. Part of what makes the death so cruel is that it was only supposed to be an exhibition match, and Apollo treats it as such. He dances his way through an elaborately staged entrance, complete with James Brown himself singing Living in America. When the fight finally starts, he prances around the ring, cheerful as ever, taunting Drago and throwing ineffectual jabs. Faster than you can say “Yo, Adrian,” Drago retaliates, and the atmosphere changes immediately as he batters Apollo from one corner of the ring to the next. When Apollo realizes what s happening, his pride gets the better of him, and he insists Rocky not stop the fight no matter what what follows still makes us scream at the screen 35 years later.Stallone directed this scene expertly, as the flashy entrance and cocksure antics give way to the shocking visual of Rocky’s white pullover stained red with Apollo s blood. Some argue that using Apollo’s death as Rocky s motivation is lazy, but it’s hard to debate how effective the shock was and how simply it sets up the iconic fight.The Training Montages Are LegendaryWhat makes Rocky IV a unique entry into the franchise is the 29 minutes of montage action, featured in eight separate scenes dispersed throughout the film. Some of them simply catch the viewer up on previous Rocky films, while others showcase the original songs by James Brown, Survivor, and John Caffer that Stallone commissioned for the film. The musical montages in particular were wise business decisions, as the soundtrack sold over a million copies and hit number 10 on the Billboard Top 200 list.The most iconic, perhaps greatest-ever montage happens after Rocky travels to Russia and begins a rustic training regimen that includes carrying logs, chopping down trees, and helping locals when their sleigh overturns in waist-high snow. His back-to-basics training, fueled by Survivor’s “Hearts on Fire,” is in stark contrast to that of Drago, whose routine sees him attached to heart monitors, running in cavernous halls, and pummeling things so hard they make Dwayne Johnson s punches in Hobbs and Shaw seem like love taps. No, really: in Hobbs and Shaw, Johnson s Luke Hobbs “only” punches with a force of 1235 psi (lbs. of pressure per square inch), but in Rocky IV, Drago hits register at 2150 psi (real-world boxers only average 1200-1700 psi). In other words, don t sit in the front row of a Drago fight unless you want to feel the shockwave in your own ribs every time he lands a blow.Most importantly, though, the Rocky vs. Drago montage recalls the original 1976 film, which depicts Stallone punching slabs of meat, downing raw eggs, and jogging up the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Both are gritty, back-to-basics affairs that serve their purpose with maximum efficiency, and they re awesome to watch.Ivan Drago Is A Villain for the AgesThanks to a spiky flat top and a chiseled, glycerin-soaked 6 5 physique, Dolph Lundgren s Ivan Drago is one of cinema’s most recognizable characters, and for good reason. Lundgren s imposing physical presence would later lead to roles as a bionic supersoldier (Universal Soldier), a Marvel badass (The Punisher), He-Man (Masters of the Universe), and a guy who flips cars like they’re pancakes (Showdown in Little Tokyo). He also happens to be a Fulbright Scholar with a master’s degree in chemical engineering and a black belt in Kyokushin Karate.The one thing the Swedish-born actor realized he didn t possess was the same kind of electric charisma that prior Rocky antagonists played by Carl Weathers, Hulk Hogan, and Mr. T flaunted effortlessly. So Lundgren worked with Stallone to capitalize on his stoic nature and subtle tics, crafting a machine-like uber-villain who might just have a little more lurking below the surface. Some critics like Roger Ebert called him “more of a James Bond villain than a Rocky-style character,” which isn t exactly wrong Richard Kiel s Jaws comes to mind but by focusing on Lundgren’s physical prowess and limiting his dialogue to a few memorable quotes, Stallone managed to get himself a nice little stew going. Believe it or not, Lundgren only delivered nine lines in the entire film, but with winners like I must break you, You will lose, and If he dies, he dies now entrenched in the pop culture vernacular, you d have to admit he made them count.The Final Fight Manages to Feel FreshAfter two epic Apollo Creed fights and two short but thrilling brawls with Clubber Lang that saw Rocky going 2-for-4 and avenging losses to both fighters, audiences probably didn’t want to see the same formula repeated again. In the first two films, Apollo was either too cocky (and still won) or tired himself out chasing a knockout (and lost, though he could have won easily). After destroying  Rocky easily in the third film, Clubber lost the second fight because Rocky got into his head, which resulted in a knockout after Rocky hit him so hard it sounded like a jet took off in the arena.What makes the fight between Rocky and Drago unique is the way Rocky makes Drago realize he’s a mortal. Drago has never faced a real challenge; his training partners seem like KO fodder, and Apollo clearly didn’t take him seriously. Sure, Drago’s power is near superhuman, and even when he misses, the air is enough to push Rocky back. But once Rocky opens up a cut on his face, and the crowd starts turning against him, he s caught off guard, seemingly unprepared for any scenario in which he isn t a dominating force. Rocky shatters Drago s confidence and his nerves by standing toe-to-toe with him and forcing him to acknowledge and respect his iron will.The cherry on top is the catharsis of seeing Drago destroyed. In Rocky and Rocky II,  Apollo was supremely charismatic, and you weren’t exactly rooting against him. In Rocky III, Clubber Lang is also magnetic and larger than life, and aside from his trash talk, he was just an excellent boxer Rocky had to overcome. Drago, however, killed Apollo, showed no remorse, trained on steroids, and represented America s greatest threat during a tense period of the Cold War. When Rocky finally turns the tide of the fight and unleashes the decisive flurry on Drago, it s thrilling and satisfying in a way that none of the franchise s previous climactic bouts have been.Fun side note: In order to make the action more believable, Stallone and Lundgren actually punched each other during the fight, and at one point, Stallone insisted Lundgren cut loose as hard as you can. Stallone ended up in the ICU for four days.Its Influence Continues TodayWith an average of 89% on the Tomatometer and close to 0 million at the worldwide box office, Creed and Creed 2 reinvigorated the Rocky franchise, focusing on the rise of Adonis (Donnie) Creed (Michael B. Jordan) as a champion boxer under the tutelage of Rocky Balboa. The presence of Ivan Drago can be felt throughout the two films, as Adonis attempts to fight in the sport that killed his father and ultimately faces a Russian showdown of his own. In a clever callback to Rocky IV, Creed 2 specifically focuses on the battles between Donnie and Viktor Drago (Florian Munteanu), the son of Ivan. Their first fight sees Donnie overwhelmed (like his father in Rocky IV), and the second meeting plays out like the Rocky/Ivan fight, as Viktor becomes dismayed that he can’t knock out Donnie and loses when Ivan throws in the towel to save his son from further punishment. The two Creed films owe a lot to the legacy of Rocky IV, introducing a new generation of fans to Ivan Drago.Even outside of the franchise, the wonderful College Humor 30 for 30 parody has racked up millions of views, and the legend of Lundgren sending Stallone to the hospital after a Swedish super punch has mad the rounds. Recently, Stallone announced he was working on a Rocky IV director’s cut; the news started trending on social media and the controversy surrounding the decision to remove the weird robot subplot has gotten a lot of press. People love Rocky IV, and that’s why 35 years later, it still inspires passionate discussion and remains one of the most popular sports films ever made.Rocky IV was released in theaters on November 27, 1985.Thumbnail image by (c)United Artists courtesy Everett CollectionOn an Apple device?

Best-Reviewed Dramas 2020Regina King s directorial debut, One Night in Miami, was the best drama of the year according to the critics, and notably five of the films in the top 10 were directed by women, including Best Picture frontrunner Nomadland and Channing Godfrey Peoples Miss Juneteenth. This is not to say the list is just a great moment for representation (though it is): Every entry features thrilling, harrowing, uplifting, and sometimes tragic tales that have moved critics and audiences. From the grief and revenge of Promising Young Woman and the inspiring determination of Daniel Kaluuya as Black Panther Chairman Fred Hampton in Judas and the Black Messiah to the quiet contemplation of Fern in Nomadland, no aspect of the human condition is left unexplored.The order of the rank below reflects the Adjusted Score as of February 28, 2021.

bob体育下注 sting thing about the Avengers is: why in the world are all these people in the same room together and what would they do when they were in the same room together? “Joss exceeded all of our wildest expectations – twice.” Joss Whedon was an amazing writer, and had done amazing things – the entire Buffy series, he had written X Men comics in the years preceding that – that showed the character would not get lost amongst the spectacle. And he of course exceeded all of our wildest expectations – twice. The Moment: The Avengers Assemble in the Battle of New YorkIf there is a moment that has come to define The Avengers, and potentially the entire MCU, it is the moment when our key heroes assemble during the climactic battle in New York. The six key “original” Avengers – Thor, Black Widow, Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, and Hawkeye – form a circle, ready for battle, as the camera pans around them and Alan Silvestri’s now-iconic music soars. According to Feige, it was a moment both he and Whedon knew the movie needed.(Photo by ©Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures/courtesy Everett Collection)“The moment I realized that this could be an iconic moment, not just for the MCU, but for these kinds of films, was on the mix stage.” The shot of all the Avengers assembling for the first time was shot in an open-air warehouse in New Mexico, not in New York. It was nothing but green screen behind them. Iron Man wasn’t in the shot. Hulk wasn’t in the shot. They were CG and put in later. But it looked pretty cool. And Joss had a great vision for it. Cut to many months later: the visual effects are coming together, Iron Man’s there now, landing, Hulk is there… But the moment I realized that this could be an iconic moment, not just for the MCU, but for these kind of films, was on the mix stage. When the effects were final and when Alan Silvestri’s amazing score was coming in, and the timing, and the experience of watching the whole movie up to that point. When you just watch the dailies, when you just watch the visual effects shots coming in, you don’t get the experience of watching that final playback on the mix stage with Silvestri’s amazing score put in, building to that moment that[ s when] I got chills and I realized Joss had pulled it off. The Impact: We re in the Endgame Now(Photo by Albert L. Ortega/WireImage)To understand the lasting impact of The Avengers and its key inspiring moment, you only need look to the box office. The movie made 3 million domestically, and more than .5 billion globally, which made it the third highest-grossing movie ever at the time. It’s since been beaten out by a handful of films – including Avengers: Infinity War, which would top billion internationally. Avengers: Endgame could make even more than that. But it all started in Phase 1, which began to build the universe audiences love today, and which culminated in the first Avengers movie.Those early films, and The Avengers especially, also changed modern blockbuster moviemaking: Seeing what Marvel did with the MCU, and what Warner Bros. and DC did with the Dark Knight trilogy, studios and filmmakers began to chase the same magic, drawing from beloved comics and graphic novels for inspiration. They began to build their own universes, some more successful than others, trying to capture the imagination of audiences in the way that Feige and his team had done, and continue to do, as we head into the Endgame.Marvel s The Avengers was released on May 4, 2012.
