With Sunday’s Critic’s Choice Award ceremony done, all of the prominent critics groups have had their say on the best films of 2018. Each year, countless critics associations host year-end awards to recognize exceptional filmmaking, but the National Society of Film Critics, Los Angeles Film Critics Association, New York Film Critics Circle, and Broadcast Film Critics Association are carefully considered when making Oscars predictions. Each group will say they are independent to the academy in voting, tastes, and identity, but they help shape the race for the big one. And so we have our eyes on them.Our Awards Leaderboard tracks major critics groups and guilds honors, and looking at the current leaders, we think Roma, If Beale Street Could Talk, and The Favourite should feel fairly confident of some Oscar love when the nominations are announced on Tuesday. (Regina King, Olivia Colman, and Richard E. Grant in particular would not be risking much to set an early alarm.) This year, though, there have been coordinated efforts to bring lesser-known films and performances into the conversation, so we re also expecting a number of surprises among the noms. Where might those surprises come from? Below, we re looking at Oscar long shots who might just have enough buzz – and which have a couple of awards already in the bag – to break through with some Oscar voters.Toni Collette, Hereditary (2018) 89% Best ActressAlready recognized by: Gotham Awards, Film IndependentDo we need to say more about what Toni Collette did in Hereditary? It seems some may have forgotten the greatest full body performance of 2018. In the movie – which caught fire at Sundance and made an impact at the box office – Collette gifted all of us with a face-screwed-screech-filled-terrified performance that takes at least three viewings to fully deconstruct. The Aussie actress started strong this awards season with a Gotham win followed by a Film Independent nomination, but then things went quiet. Collette would be vying for the open fifth Best Actress nomination – assuming favorites Colman, Lady Gaga, Glenn Close, and Melissa McCarthy all come through as expected. She will need those horror lovers in the Academy to champion her incredible work.Yalitza Aparicio, Roma (2018) 96% Best ActressAlready Recognized by: BFCA, Gotham Awards(Photo by © Netflix)It s worth noting the star of the most awarded film of the season has gone largely unrecognized. An unknown actress, in a black-and-white foreign language film, distributed on a platform many Academy voters herald as the end of cinema, is a hard sell. Director Alfonso Cuarón has repeatedly said Roma does not exist without the women who inspired and made it, but the accolades have not exactly come streaming in. In Cuarón’s semi-autobiographical love letter to Mexico and the woman who raised him, Aparicio gave depth and aching authenticity to a character rarely featured on screen. Cuarón painted a masterpiece, but Aparicio is the canvas, paint, and brush.Steven Yeun, Burning (2018) 95% Best ActorAlready Recognized by: LAFCA, NSFC(Photo by @ Go Well USA)Yeun’s performance as a South Korean playboy in Burning is ethereal, charismatic, and unnerving. Another foreign language entry, Lee Chang-dong’s noir-thriller slowly unravels and builds to a climactic twist you don’t see coming – and so much of it rests on the former Walking Dead star s performance; our thoughts on Yuen’s character, Ben, mirror how we interpret the events of the film. Is he just a spoiled playboy formulating sinister plots for entertainment? Or is he a calculating psychopath? Or maybe just a guy who likes to burn greenhouses? It all rests on what we see in Yuen, in his gaze or sly smile. It’s a tightrope to pull off a likable Oscar-worthy villain, and Yeun makes it look effortless. The formula worked for Javier Bardem in No Country for Old Men, so fingers crossed.Debra Granik, Leave No Trace (2018) 100% Best DirectorAlready Recognized by: Film Independent, National Board of Review, LAFCA(Photo by JA/Everett Collection)In a year littered with exceptional work by female directors, it’s hard to justify their lack of inclusion come award time. The Rider, You Were Never Really Here, A Private Life, Can You Ever Forgive Me?, and Destroyer all are worthy of recognition. But Debra Granik’s Leave No Trace distinguishes itself from even those stellar entries – and not just because it still sits at 100% on our Tomatometer after 200 reviews. Director Jane Campion may have said it best in her impassioned plea for Leave No Trace: “A film filled with compassion… it has had a powerful impact on audiences. Not because it is loud, but because the truth that Granik speaks quietly can be heard even in a noisy world.”Elsie Fisher, Eighth Grade (2018) 99% Best ActressAlready Recognized by: Film Independent, Gotham Awards, DGA, BFCA, NYFCC(Photo by © A24)Cringeworthy Cinema: that’s how Bo Burnham’s Eighth Grade and its star Elsie Fisher charmed their way into our hearts. Reliving the painfully awkward moments of adolescence with such unflinching honesty, Fisher gave the best performance of the year that we had to watch through fingers and stooping down in our seats. (OK, maybe tied with Collette – but for very different reasons.) Burnham’s script is the quintessential coming-of-age story for the YouTube generation and, as with Roma, his film lives or dies by its central performance. As Kayla, Fisher is relatable and endearing for tweens and their parents, finding a perfect blend of earnestness and mortification.Ethan Hawke, First Reformed (2017) 93% Best ActorAlready Recognized by: Film Independent, Gotham Awards, NYFCC, BFCA, LAFCA, NSFC(Photo by © A24)Ethan Hawke often remarks that he doesn t want to be known just for the Dead Poets Society. But after the over 30 years, 80 credits, four Oscar nominations, and countless more beloved performances, Hawke still hears Oh Captain, My Captain on the regular. His turn as the conflicted and apathetic Reverend Toller is miles away from any previous role he has done. Many are taking notice: With a near clean sweep of the critics associations, Hawke s performance in First Reformed is second only to Regina King s in Beale Street in regards to acclaim this season. Why isn t he a lock for an Oscar nom? Hawke s lack of movement outside of the critics groups awards does not bode well. We ll be watching this one keenly.Oscar nominations are announced on Tuesday, January 22, 2019亚博竞彩APP下载今日新开170月卡传奇是款全新推出的经典传奇手游，新开的各种对战玩法能够带给你全新的体验，热血高爆刺激的对战玩法模式玩起来更加具有对战感受，支持三端互通和跨服的对战玩法，月卡上线也送给玩家们，月卡能够帮助到玩家们更好的闯关打副本，还有更多值得下载畅玩玩法等着你来挑战畅玩哦，快来河东下载试玩吧！

(Photo by Brooke Palmer)Masks are coming off in certain locations and more seats may be opening up in movie theaters but the films themselves are still not drawing much of an audience. Only four films this year have managed to open to more than million and if the Saw series has anything in common with Raya and the Last Dragon it may be the disappointment in not being able to join that exclusive club in 2021. Instead, the latest Saw film, Spiral, looks to become another footnote suggesting that even brand names are not bringing back people to theaters. Yet.King of the Crop: Spiral Wins the Weekend But Leaves Questions In Its WakeThe Saw series was on a seven-year hiatus after “The Final Chapter” when Jigsaw was launched in 2017 to a .6 million start. The previous low for the franchise was Saw VI (.1 million), when people decided they would rather have a Paranormal Activity film for their October horror than another Saw entry. After James Wan’s original opened to .2 million in 2004, the next four entries opened between million and million. Nobody expected Spiral: From the Book of Saw to approach those lofty numbers, even on the downslope of the pandemic. But it was widely expected to come somewhere in the vicinity of those Saw VI opening numbers. Though: Is it the pandemic or are people just tired of the Jigsaw shtick altogether?In terms of horror comps for 2021, a .7 million start is certainly better than The Unholy (.35 million) or Separation (.8 million). It is also better than last week’s Wrath of Man (.3 million). Heck, that makes it good enough for the fifth best opening of the year. But do not expect this film to chug along the way Nobody’s .82 million opening did to over million, so far. The last five films in the Saw series dropped between 60.6% and 67.6% after their first weekends. Wrath of Man just dropped 55% from its number 1 perch last weekend to gross .7 million this weekend. Assuming Spiral holds on to a narrow margin for first place next week we could be looking at the lowest number 1 gross since the weekend of February 19, when The Croods: A New Age made .71 million. The lowest since then was Raya and the Last Dragon’s third weekend victory, with .12 million. The Disney film has now officially surpassed Tom Jerry to become the second-highest grossing film of 2021 and the fifth-highest of the pandemic. Though the industry is certainly hoping that all the films on that list will be knocked down two notches sometime after Memorial Day weekend with the releases of A Quiet Place Part II and Cruella.Rotten Returns: The Devil Is in The Per-Theater-Average Details For a Number of Under-Performers
此次的《暗黑破坏神：不朽》的玩家群体，无疑是喜欢暗黑系列的忠实玩家。手游基本复刻了暗黑3的全部玩法。手游公布了野蛮人、武僧、魔法师等6大职业。许多之前在单机游戏中出现的怪物，此次也被加入了手游中。 Another one from my childhood, or like from my teen years, is Sex, Lies and Videotape. It s funny teenage girls are not exactly the target audience there, but I think one of the things I really like that drew me in was the movies within the movies, which are women talking about sex directly to the camera. I think even though these are not independent feminist art projects, I saw them in that way. Within the narrative of the movie, they re tools for this man to get off. It was only a few years later that I would start this underground distribution network for women filmmakers called Joanie for Jackie, and in some ways I think those videos would have been good movies for Joanie for Jackie. Of course, they re not actually made by women, but I guess it sort of proves that if you re desperate enough for female filmmaking, you can find it even within that Steven Soderbergh movie.
亚博竞彩APP下载 The King of Staten Island, the latest directorial effort from Judd Apatow (The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up) arrives exclusively on VOD on June 12th. The movie was co-written by and stars Saturday Night Live cast member Pete Davidson, whose life story serves loosely as the basis for the film. Initial reviews are calling it one of the filmmaker’s best in years for its dramatic maturity — apparently this isn’t exactly another laugh-out-loud comedy — and for the winning supporting cast more than for its central star. Of course, this is an Apatow movie, so criticisms about its length are to be expected.Here’s what critics are saying about The King of State Island:How does it compare to Judd Apatow s other films?His best film since 2009’s Funny People. David Ehrlich, IndieWireIt’s surely the best Apatow movie since Funny People, and maybe even since Knocked Up. Kyle Pinion, The BeatNever has Apatow been so on point collaborating with another creative to make a fully-formed vision that isn’t just a hilarious experience. The King of Staten Island is the most technically proficient work of his entire career. James Clay, Fresh FictionThe movie deserves credit for skewing a little darker than the usual Apatow conclusion. Brett Arnold, Consequence of SoundIt’s the director’s most emotionally attuned and narrowly focused work. Jordan Raup, The Film StageIf The King of Staten Island is the director s least overtly comedic effort, it’s also probably his least sentimental. Jon Frosch, Hollywood ReporterIt’s an arrested development story, but it also shows that Apatow is growing up. Matt Goldberg, Collider(Photo by Kevin Mazur/©Universal Pictures)How is Pete Davidson s Performance?Davidson is a triumph in The King of Staten Island. Molly Freeman, ScreenRantOn the basis of The King of Staten Island, I couldn’t tell you if he could carry a whole movie that wasn’t about his own life – but he definitely carries this one. Matt Singer, ScreenCrushHe certainly has comic timing and screen presence, and yet I don’t know if he has the range to play characters that don’t mirror his own life and experiences. Matt Goldberg, ColliderHis range as an actor may not turn out to be as wide as his wingspan, but the numb vulnerability he shares here makes for a performance that might as well be seeping out of his skin. David Ehrlich, IndieWireWhile no one will confuse him for Laurence Olivier anytime soon, Davidson does have a breezy charm that affixes his personal connection to the material and engages throughout. Kyle Pinion, The BeatDavidson, it turns out, is a fine leading man. Loose and expressive, he strikes a balance of droll loutishness and sensitivity that never tips over into Sandler-esque clowning or cloying. Jon Frosch, Hollywood ReporterThe ensemble allows Davidson to play off of other actors in different ways to ideally give the young comic a chance to shine. Aaron Neuwirth, We Live EntertainmentWhile he sparks with an irreverent punch line here or there, there s not enough liveliness in this maudlin role for Davidson to dazzle in. Kristy Puchko, IGN(Photo by Mary Cybulski/©Universal Pictures)And the rest of the cast?Even though this is supposed to be Davidson’s big coming-out party, it’s the cast around him who gets to truly shine. [Marisa] Tomei, an always-welcomed presence, is phenomenal. Chris Evangelista, SlashfilmOne of the best things about The King of Staten Island is the supporting cast and their performances apart from Davidson, especially Bill Burr. Rendy Jones, Rendy ReviewsBill Burr steals the movie. Roger Moore, Movie NationA better [movie] whenever Burr is on screen, especially when he’s with Tomei. Justin Chang, Los Angeles TimesWhile it s too early to imagine what this year s awards season is going to be like, [Burr] deserves some serious recognition for his performance. Chris Bumbray, JoBloMoises Arias puts in a brilliant turn as Scott’s eternally bewildered friend. Linda Marric, HeyUGuysOne wishes [Bel Powley’s] character was more fully-formed, particularly considering how heavily she figures into the film’s final moments. Jordan Raup, The Film StageIs the movie funny?It goes without saying that the movie is pretty funny. Rendy Jones, Rendy ReviewsThere are a handful of laugh-out-loud moments throughout Staten Island and one screamingly-funny extended sequence that winds up influencing a great deal of the plot. Brett Arnold, Consequence of SoundThere are few out-and-out comedic set pieces; the humor appears out of honest and sometimes intense conversations. Matt Singer, ScreenCrushThe King of Staten Island is more of an indie drama that happens to have some really sharp jokes. Matt Goldberg, ColliderThere’s nothing here that’s going to stick with you – the next great quotable comedy this is not. Chris Evangelista, SlashfilmIf you go in expecting Apatow s usual comedic flair you may be disappointed as the laughs aren t as numerous as his previous films. However…it is nonetheless entertaining. Allison Rose, FlickDirect(Photo by Mary Cybulski/©Universal Pictures)Is the running time a problem?The King of Staten Island is inexcusably overlong. Brett Arnold, Consequence of SoundThere is no reason for this movie to be this long, especially when it’s telling a story that has been told ample times before. Rendy Jones, Rendy ReviewsThe movie, juggling too many narrative priorities over an overlong 137 minutes, seems to succumb to Scott’s own sense of aimlessness as much as it depicts it. Justin Chang, Los Angeles TimesThe real issue is not the running time, but that you feel it. Kristy Puchko, IGNI never got bored or wanted Apatow to wrap things up. If anything I wanted to spend more time with some of the supporting characters. Matt Singer, ScreenCrushThe editing by Jay Cassidy keeps the plotting from going off the skids while staying true to Apatow’s signature improvisational style. James Clay, Fresh FictionDoes it get better as it goes?The movie s second half is more compelling than it s first. Chris Bumbray, JoBloWhile certainly Apatow hoped the overlong first half would match the fecklessness of Scott’s life, it’s a hard slog… Without a sense of direction in the dark comedy’s first half, the heartfelt second half nearly arrives unnoticed. Robert Daniels, 812 Film Reviews(Photo by Mary Cybulski/©Universal Pictures)Will it make for a good rental at home?It’s the kind of soul-bearing filmmaking that’s at least worthy of a weekend view in your own home. Kyle Pinion, The BeatHaving this story exist on streaming exclusively seems oddly appropriate. Davidson is the comedian for this generation, and most of his die-hard fans would rather catch up with him at home anyways. James Clay, Fresh FictionA pretty apt film for home viewing; something to dip in and out of, perhaps, while you’re gaming, ordering pizza to your mother’s basement, or having a lazy lockdown. Fionnuala Halligan, Screen InternationalViewers stuck at home won t go wrong with The King of Staten Island a dramedy that delivers both laugh-out-loud comedy and entertaining drama. Molly Freeman, ScreenRantThe King of Staten Island premieres on VOD on Friday, June 12.
