(Photo by Netflix)Move over, “Is Die Hard a Christmas movie?” The internet’s hottest new debate is about the Netflix movie that launched a thousand memes, Bird Box.The thriller stars Sandra Bullock as a woman tasked with ushering a pair of young, cherubic children over the river and through the woods. The catch? They’re blindfolded the whole time to protect themselves against supernatural entities that cause your death if you see them.In addition to inspiring people around the world to blindfold themselves and grievously injure their bodies in the name of memes — Netflix had to issue a warning against participating in the “Bird Box Challenge” because it is 2019 and we’re all doin’ it for the gram, even if it’ll cause us to trip over furniture and give ourselves massive bruises — the film has also sparked serious debate about whether or not it is actually a good movie.Just search “Bird Box” on Twitter to find the extremely divided discourse. It’s an argument that has spread to the Rotten Tomatoes staff, too, with some passionately pro and some vehemently against the film as a whole. In fact, we got so heated about it that we’ve outlined the two main arguments below. The Tomatometer is split: The movie is sitting at 62%.Help us settle another movie debate: Is Bird Box a suspenseful masterpiece, or just a boring, two-hour-long setup for memes? Below, we present an argument representing each side of the debate from a passionate RT staffer, but it’s up to you to make the call. Read on and vote below!Yes, Bird Box Is A Terrifying, Claustrophobic Masterpiece(Photo by Netflix)There’s a reason we’re entering 2019 with scraped knees and black eyes: Bird Box challenge! And there’s a reason we’re covering our eyes like fools and navigating the twists and turns of our own homes: Bird Box! Susanne Bier’s masterful little shocker is every bit as good as A Quiet Place — there, we said it — a suspense flick with a masterful conceit, killer set pieces, and something to say. What elevates Bird Box, however, are the performances: Sandra Bullock is incredibly compelling as the tough Malorie (“Boy! Girl!”) while John Malkovich keeps things tense in the house with big globs of smarmy menace. Also, Bird Box has just confirmed that Trevante Rhodes, whom many of us first met in Moonlight, is a superstar in the making (and that bod, though). The true measure of a horror flick is whether it sticks in the memory, if its disturbing imagery and spine-shattering scares linger. And by that measure — at least, going by the Internet — Bird Box is a classic.No, Bird Box is an Overrated, Scare-Free Mess(Photo by Netflix)There’s a reason we entered 2019 scratching our heads and going, “huh?” The Internet had been hijacked by a new Netflix flick called Bird Box and frankly, we just didn’t get it. Because… Bird Box is actually terrible. Full respect to director Susanne Bier, who’s done some really great stuff in the past, but the movie feels like it was made by someone wearing a blindfold. There’s almost zero suspense — how did they manage to botch even the scene with the car sensors! — and the central threat is about as menacing as The Happening’s threatening vegetation. When anything like tension starts to creep in, we’re suddenly back on the river for cinema’s most tedious white water rafting adventure. And don’t get us started on Bullock’s post-apocalyptic hair and makeup — impeccable and totally confounding. The only thing scary about Bird Box is the strong likelihood of a sequel. 此文章仅代表作者个人观点与见解，作者为DNF手游热心玩家，如有不当之处，敬请在评论区予以指正！祝各位地下城与勇士手游的玩家劳动节快乐！
“Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken” (55%, season 5, episode 6) feature low-key weddings. In fact, the latter is the lowest-scoring GoT episode, largely due, it seems, to Ramsay Bolton s deplorable acts after his wedding to Sansa Stark.Tip: Big weddings are more popular with critics. Keep the slaughter and violence broad and relatively impersonal.The Longer the Episode, the Higher the Tomatometer Average(Photo by Helen Sloan/HBO)Only 12 episodes in the series have running times of 60 minutes or more, but they have a very Fresh 95% average. That’s slightly higher than the 94.1% average of the shorter episodes that don’t cross the one-hour mark. Four of the six GoT season 8 episodes have running times of more than an hour — and they’re all a super-sized 78 minutes or more. Only two previous episodes (season 7’s “Beyond the Wall” and “The Dragon and the Wolf”) have gone beyond the 75-minute mark, and the results are an 85.5% average Tomatometer score — which is almost Rotten by GoT standards. The rest of the episodes average 95%.Fortunately, four of season 8 s six episodes will be longer than 60 minutes.The Writer With the Highest Average Might Surprise You(Photo by Macall B. Polay/HBO)Showrunners Weiss and Benioff wrote 46 of the 67 episodes together, and have a 94.8% Tomatometer average. The writers who contributed to the other 21 episodes include Bryan Cogman (10 episodes), George R.R. Martin himself (four episodes), Vanessa Taylor (three episodes), Dave Hill (three episodes), and Jane Espenson (one episode, written alongside Weiss and Benioff). While Espenson’s single episode earned a 100%, the others average around the same: Taylor at 95%, Hill at 94.3%, Martin at 95%, and Cogman at 93.8%. (It s worth noting that without the season 5 outlier “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken,” however, Cogman’s average for his remaining nine episodes would be the second-highest at 97.4% after Espenson s single entry.)Taylor went on to write the screenplay for the Oscar-winning The Shape of Water, and Espenson became the co-executive producer on Once Upon a Time. Martin, of course, continues to frustrate rabid fans demanding his next book. He s also collaborating on the show s prequel series, starring Naomi Watts, Miranda Richardson, Jamie Campbell Bower, and more.Related: Everything We Know About HBO s Game of Thrones Prequel”With Directors, the First Is the Best(Photo by HBO)Only one of the 19 directors who have tackled GoT episodes so far has averaged 100% — that’s Tim Van Patten, who helmed the first two installments of the first season. The veteran TV director (The Sopranos, The Wire, Black Mirror, and plenty more prestige series) was brought in to reshoot the disastrous pilot episode that was a deemed a “MASSIVE PROBLEM.” Van Patten helped pull off the “biggest rescue in Hollywood history” by smoothing many of the rough edges and successfully introducing the characters and world to the audience. Under his supervision “Winter Is Coming” and “The Kingsroad” laid a perfect foundation for the show to grow.The other top directors include Alex Graves (six episodes, 98.8%), Daniel Minahan (five episodes, 97.2%), David Nutter (six episodes, 96.5%), David Petrarca (two episodes, 96%), and Miguel Sapochnik (four episodes, 96%). Director Alan Taylor, who has directed the most Game of Thrones episodes, shares the distinction of having directed four episodes with 100% Tomatometer scores, along with Graves. (Taylor s Beyond the Wall, while still high at 82%, brought down his average to 94.4% — which is like complaining that your New York City penthouse apartment on Central Park sucks because its floor-to-ceiling windows only wrap around three sides of the building.)Nutter, Sapochnik, and Benioff and Weiss are directing the final six episodes of season 8. With four 100% episodes between them, they should certainly be able to find a way for GoT to go out on top with a 95% or above finale.Tyrion Lannister Drinks, Knows Things, and Plays an Integral Part in the 100% Tomatometer Rated EpisodesTyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) is the go-to guy for 100% episodes because he’s appeared in 21 of the 22 perfect episodes and played a major part in the sections mentioned above. He was heavily featured in director Tim Van Patten’s two 100% episodes and in each of the fourth episodes with 100% scores. He also played an integral part in the two 100% Tomatometer episodes written by George R.R. Martin that feature battles ( Blackwater ) and very expensive weddings ( The Lion and the Rose ). What makes Tyrion the MVP are his appearances in Blackwater and Battle of the Bastards. They are highest-rated episodes that take place in only one or two locations (a very good thing). Basically, you want Tyrion appearing in any episode for any reason.Nudity, Major Deaths, Pie, Direwolves and CameosAfter sorting through all the GoT episodes, we learned there are several side elements that make positive Tomatometer contributions to the series. The episodes featuring pie consumption (99.1%), famous musician cameos (97.1%), Stark or Lannister death at a wedding (100%), or a direwolf being killed onscreen (99% Summer in The Door and Grey Wind in The Rains of Castamere ) have great Tomatometer averages. However, we did learn that certain favorite GoT elements or characters don’t move the Tomatometer needle; for instance, episodes featuring main or recurring characters getting naked (93.7%) or being killed (94.4%) don’t have the best Tomatometer averages comparatively.Appearances of the Night King also trend lower at 93.4%. Only two episodes have a 100% score, revealing that it s actually best to feature him during a battle episode ( Hardhome ) or a wedding episode ( The Lion and the Rose ).How to Build a Perfect 100% Fresh Game of Thrones EpisodeBased on the statistics and observations above, we’ve come up with an equation that adds up to a perfect Game of Thrones episode:Make it 61-62 minutes long + air it as the fourth episode + hire Tim Van Patten to direct it + include a major battle or fight in which the heroes suffer major losses + tack on a very expensive wedding + make sure George R.R. Martin writes the script + include Tyrion Lannister + limit the story to one or two locations + kill a direwolf + eat a pie = 100% Fresh Tomatometer score.Game of Thrones’ eighth and final season premieres Sunday, April 14 at 9 p.m. on HBO.Like this?

It’s the first ever director face-off in our Vs. series, and it’s an epic battle between two of the most influential filmmakers of our time – especially when it comes to action and sci-fi cinema. In the one corner you have Sir Ridley Scott, the man who gave us Alien, Blade Runner, Gladiator, and… The Counselor. (Mean, we know.) In the other corner is James Cameron, the man who gave us Aliens, The Terminator, Titanic, and… Piranha II: The Spawning. (Really.) Which director comes out on top when it comes to box office, Tomatometer and Audience Score, influence, and more? Rotten Tomatoes Contributing Editor Mark Ellis is crunching the numbers and making the big calls and, as ever, if you don’t agree with the verdict, let us know in the comments.Thumbnail images by Everett Collection and ©Fox 2000 courtesy Everett Collection

The Invisible Man (2020) 91% Once upon a time, Universal Pictures had plans for a so-called Dark Universe, in which the studio hoped to reboot all of its classic monster movies and bring the characters together in a united storyline akin to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Unfortunately, after the mediocre performance of 2014 s Dracula Untold prompted a soft reset of the franchise, 2017 s The Mummy officially halted those plans when it also debuted to dismal box office returns and even worse reviews, forcing Universal to rethink their strategy entirely. The solution? Stick to standalone films, at least for the time being. That brings us to this week s The Invisible Man, a new take on the classic H.G. Wells novel that shifts the focus from the titular character to the woman he terrorizes. Elisabeth Moss is the woman in question, an architect trapped in an abusive relationship with a brilliant but controlling scientist, who finally finds the courage to flee the relationship, only to learn her ex has committed suicide. Or has he? Is he the one stalking her from the shadows and breathing down her neck? And if he is, who will believe her? Critics say The Invisible Man is a smartly written thriller that tackles timely themes but also provides sufficient spectacle, and it benefits from a magnetic performance from Moss in the lead. The Dark Universe may be no more, but if Universal continues to make films of this caliber, they may be onto something after all.
When it comes to puzzling mysteries and existential questions about identity and consciousness, few shows do it as well as Westworld. In the span of two seasons, the show has expanded well beyond being just a remake of a 1973 movie directed by Jurassic Park author, Michael Crichton, to become a TV phenomenon that makes its audience question everything they’re seeing. Using its Wild West–themed amusement park setting to explore a mystery of robots that start to malfunction, Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy also explore a variety of intriguing themes about the nature of will and consciousness, to the effect of technology and deteriorating privacy on society.After season 1 introduced its mystery and delivered one shocking twist after another, season 2 premiered all the way back in 2018 was even more puzzling, with more characters, more storylines and a new park. After the shocking season 2 finale, Westworld finally fulfilled its promise of having robots (well, hosts) out in the real world. With season 3 just around the corner, let’s take a look at everything we know about the upcoming season of Westworld.WHERE WE LEFT OFFSeason 2 of Westworld doubled down on the mystery and craziness of season 1, turning a show about robotic cowboys into a mashup of Person of Interest and Blade Runner, as timelines diverged before converging in the finale. For one, we found out that Delos (the company in charge of the park) had actually been stealing information on every guest who entered the park, scanning their brains with the cowboy hats in an effort to turn humans into hosts.Meanwhile, a whole lot of hosts died, including Akecheta (Zahn McClarnon), Maeve’s daughter (Jasmyn Rae), and poor Teddy (James Marsden), who crossed over into the “Valley Beyond.” Maeve (Thandie Newton) and Bernard (Jeffrey Wright) were killed, as was Charlotte Hale (Tessa Thompson), though the latter was rebuilt as a host inhabited by the consciousness of Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood), who escaped from the park, rebuilt Bernard and wants to take over the world. Meanwhile, the Man in Black (Ed Harris) seemingly died, but a post-credits scene presented what seemed to be a host version of him in a distant future.WHERE WE’RE HEADEDSo far, we’ve seen four trailers for season 3, which don’t really tell us much in terms of plot, but give us some ideas as to what will happen, and most importantly, where it will happen. First off was a short teaser at the end of season 2 that introduced us to a new character (more on him later) and a wealth of new technology like self-driving motorcycles, robot construction workers, dresses that change color and reform at the wearer’s will, new and fancy cars without doors, a kind of very slim helicopter, and more.Then we got a full trailer at Comic-Con last year, where we were introduced to Dolores’ plan for the season – to expose the dark side of humanity and bring our civilization down, even if we outnumber the hosts. There’s a plot to destroy Dolores, led by Bernard, human animosity toward hosts, and hints of a lot more action than we had seen before. HBO announced the release date for season 3 with a teaser that filled fans in on some of the history of the show’s universe, outlining “divergences” that began with the impeachment of Donald Trump, and continued with future assassinations, civil wars, thermonuclear disasters, and the establishing of a “system” in 2039 that lasted until 2058 (presumably when Dolores emerged into the human world) with a voice over explaining that “we are in the middle of a war.” During the show s Comic-Con panel, Nolan talked about how determinism and algorithms play a big part in season 3, saying the show would explore “the Netflix effect, there is a giant algorithm in the sky that decides what you are going to watch.”
With the imminent arrival of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the film series main narrative will come to a close. But the story will live on not just in the inevitable spinoff material, but in the memories of audiences affected by the films fantastical adventures, visuals, key lines, and ideas. Some of these moments are deeply ingrained in the culture, reshaping the very language, while others earned their power from infamy (oh, hey there, Jar-Jar) or, like Willrow Hood s escape from Cloud City, needed time and the Internet to acquire their status. But which moments rank supreme? We ve considered the eight Skywalker Saga films thus far and the two Star Wars Story films for a comprehensive look at the moments we expect to stand the test of time and end up as the best of Star Wars for decades to come.38. Yoda vs. Count Dooku – Attack of the Clones(Photo by 20th Century Fox Film Corp.)While co-opted for an unfortunate “Yo da man!” ad campaign for Attack of the Clones’ home video release, this fight was a genuinely unexpected thing when the film premiered, and an inkling of what might be possible for Yoda (Frank Oz) in Episode III. He takes on a Sith apprentice nearly three times his size by transforming into a lightsaber-wielding whirling dervish. It’s a strange scene, but also a demonstration of the Jedi master’s power in his prime.37. The Destruction of Jedha City – Rogue One: A Star Wars StoryThis is a moment built on the quality of the filmmaking. The composition of shots, editing, and music tell the tale of the Death Star s test-fire in a way far more sophisticated and affecting than one might guess from the previous scenes in the film. Even simple ideas like depicting the space station upside down gives it a unique and oddly contemplative mood just before the weapon fires and utterly annihilates the city below. The feeling quickly switches to dread as the film s heroes race to escape the wave of destruction.36. Rey Flies The Falcon Off Jakku – The Force AwakensIf The Force Awakens is a film about fans taking control of the Star Wars toy chest, then this scene is a visual representation of that transition of authority. Finding the Millennium Falcon in a junkyard, flying it through the carcass of a Star Destroyer, and defending it from TIE Fighters all feels like a fantasy a fan would’ve had in 1983 immediately upon exiting Return of the Jedi. It’s the kind of fan-film energy we can definitely appreciate.35. The Train Heist – Solo: A Star Wars Story(Photo by Walt Disney Studios)Unique in the live-action Star Wars canon, the train heist from Solo: A Star Wars Story should be its opening moments. From the notion of the gravity-defying fuel transports to Beckett’s (Woody Harrelson) plan, to all the ways it goes wrong, it feels like a proper introduction to these characters (even Thandie Newton s doomed Val). It also feels like such a natural part of Star Wars that we wonder how it went so long without a high-speed heist scene like this.34. “That’s Not How The Force Works!” – The Force AwakensHan’s (Harrison Ford) indignant response to Finn’s (John Boyega) wishful thinking is a refrain nearly every Star Wars fan has heard during some heated late-night discussion. While funny, it also reveals just how far Han himself has come since dismissing the way of the Jedi as a “hokey religion.” It’s a fact of life for him, but it’s not as magical to him as some would like to believe. His viewpoint has that lived-in quality the films always strive to find.33. Poe Takes On The First Order Fleet – The Last JediSome may find Poe Dameron’s (Oscar Isaac) radio chatter with General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson) a little too modern, but his actual assault on the First Order fleet is the sort of space warfare computer effects were created to deliver. There are good explosions, a spirited defense of the planet below, and even some emotion, thanks to Paige Tico’s (Veronica Ngo) sacrifice. Sure, the whole thing is a tragic waste of the Resistance’s limited resources in the end, but it’s a great way to open a Star Wars film.32. Lapti Nek (The Original Song In Jabba’s Palace) – Return of the Jedi(Photo by 20th Century Fox Film Corp.)Star Wars has yet to pull off a truly successful musical sequence unless you count The Star Wars Holiday Special s Goodnight, But Not Goodbye but “Lapti Nek” from the 1983 version of Return of the Jedi comes pretty close. Performed on screen by the surprisingly cuddly but mostly immobile Max Rebo Band, its hilarious 1980s vibe (“Lapti Nek” means “Work It Out” in Huttese) has aged better than the replacement “Jedi Rocks” from the

its to the role with a ferocious intensity. Robbie Collin, Daily TelegraphMoss is the key to making all the scary-movie filmmaking work… She is terrific. Brian Truitt, USA TodayIt s all the more impressive as she s often acting against nothing. Ian Sandwell, Digital SpyWatching her fight for her life against the title monster is a feat of physical acting, not to mention a devilishly effective visual effect. William Bibbiani, The WrapCasting Moss in the lead was easily the best investment the producers made. Norman Gidney, HorrorBuzzRyan FujitaniAnything else deserve recognition?Let’s give a shout out to the sound designers, taken for granted so often, and then proven utterly essential when filmmakers have little else to hang their hats on. Simon Miraudo, Student EdgeI really love the positive images of the black family… and I just wanted to give a shout out to them for that. Sharronda Williams, Pay or WaitDoes the movie work with its heavy themes?It does an admirable job of taking us back to a time when a horror film could actually mean something. Owen Gleiberman, VarietyThis film does a great job of talking about domestic violence, survivors of domestic violence, what life looks like if they’re lucky enough to get out of that situation. Sharronda Williams, Pay or WaitThere is a universal and uncomfortably real impact to the horrors on show here. Which, inevitably, will make it a tough watch for some. John Nugent, Empire MagazineWomen will find an extra level of horror and truth to this movie. Grace Randolph, Beyond the TrailerThe analogy of the woman no one believes is all too relevant today, but it’s a cliche we’ve seen before and in far better films. Jude Dry, IndieWireWhile Whannell wants to say something, what he actually has to say doesn’t amount to all that much. Benjamin Lee, Guardian(Photo by Universal Pictures)Are there any major problems?Like much of the film, the final scene opts for shock value over something more drawn out and it ends with a whimper rather than a roar. Benjamin Lee, GuardianThe film s demand that we pay close attention for any sign of the invisible man proves a double-edged sword. Just as his aggressions become harder and harder to ignore, so too do the film s narrative blemishes. Angie Han, MashableCould this be the start of a new horror franchise?It’s not clear where a sequel to this would lead, but if Moss is on board the filmmakers will already be ahead of the game.

Shia Labeouf isn t exactly known for earnest, heartfelt dramas, but when the trailer dropped for his latest movie, The Peanut Butter Falcon, audiences knew to expect something different. After the film s premiere at South by Southwest earlier this year, critics confirmed what curious moviegoers had been suspecting: it s a sweet, nuanced adventure movie with outstanding performances from its ensemble cast. The story centers on a young man with Down syndrome (played by Zack Gottsagen), who escapes his nursing home in order to pursue his dream of becoming a professional wrestler. With a well-meaning caretaker (Dakota Johnson) from his nursing home in pursuit, he joins up with a petty criminal with problems of his own (LaBeouf) to blaze a trail through the deltas of the American Southeast en route to a training facility for wrestlers in North Carolina.Ahead of the release of the film this week, the trio of stars sat down with RT editor Jacqueline Coley to talk about what it was like to make the film, and it was clear that all three had found something special. Watch the interview above to see how they got so close during filming, what they d like people to remember about them, and how Gottsagen helped LaBeouf become more friendly. Then try to figure out what LaBeouf s birthday wish was that he so coyly implies came true.Like this? Subscribe to our newsletter and get more features, news, and guides in your inbox every week.
