清风围棋下载采用百度引擎9（Baidu 6）(Photo by Courtesy of Sundance Institute | photo by Kasia Ladczuk. )Five years after The Babadook made Jennifer Kent a household name – at least within the homes of adventurous filmgoers with a thirst for smart and terrifying horror – the Australian director returns with a brutal, controversial, and Certified Fresh surprise. For her second feature film, The Nightingale, Kent moves away from the horror genre and jumps back in time to 1825 Tasmania, the small island at the base of southeast Australia from which some of the darkest stories of the nation s colonization have emerged. It s a bleak setting for a brutal story. Irish convict Clare (Aisling Franciosi) seeks revenge on a British officer (Sam Claflin) after he and two other men rape her and kill her husband and baby. Her chase takes her through the wilderness of Tasmania as the officer and his crew head north to the city of Launceston; to navigate the woods, she enlists – steals, really – Aboriginal man Billy (Baykali Ganambarr) to work as her tracker. At Sundance in January, where the film had its U.S. debut, a number of audience members walked out of the premiere screening, mirroring reactions at other film festivals where the film has screened. There are multiple scenes of rape, two of them extended, and moments of extreme violence. But there is also an unflinching honesty that drives the film, a rage, and a refusal to turn away from the brutality of colonial history that many are hailing as an overdue corrective to more sugarcoated readings of the period. Rotten Tomatoes met with Kent the day after the Sundance premiere at a hotel lobby in Park City, Utah, to talk about reactions to the film and the director s determination to throw a torch into dark corners, no matter how uncomfortable it makes those who have to look.Joel Meares for Rotten Tomatoes: When you introduced the film last night, you said you didn’t necessarily think of it as a period film, but a contemporary film. What did you mean by that?Jennifer Kent: I mean, I think of it as a myth. Not in that it s untrue, but just, I love myth. I love mythical stories, but I don t really love period dramas that kind of focus on costumes and sweeping images. I guess I meant that the concerns of the film are modern. You know? Charlie says, ‘It s a really brutal time.’ But I think [the time] where we re living now is brutal.Rotten Tomatoes: Watching with an American audience, when you made the comment about it being a brutal time, I think everyone sort of chuckled assuming it was a reference to U.S. politics. But being at that screening so close to Australia Day [which marks the day the first fleet of British settlers arrived to colonize the country], it felt much more directed at Australia and the debate around Indigenous rights and history there. It hit hard. Kent: Yeah, well I m really happy to hear. Not happy to hear it hit you, but I mean, I am, because I feel I have so much to say. I went to the Adelaide Film Festival, and I was really scared about how the Australian audience would take it to be honest. I just thought, we ve had such a blind spot in the past historically. And I think we went in with such sensitivity to that, but we couldn t not tell [certain parts of the story]. You can t not include those things in 1825 Tasmania because that is what happened. But also I think in order for this to change we need to shine a light on the darkness. Then we will really start to move forward, I think, have some kind of reconciliation and evolution together.(Photo by Matt Nettheim, © IFC Films)Rotten Tomatoes: How was the reaction at that first Australian screening in Adelaide?Kent: So yeah, I was really scared. And at the end of the screening no one left, no one clapped in the credits. It was dead silence for the whole, I don t know, those credits were four minutes or something. Then after the music ended and the screen went black, they stood up and gave a standing ovation for several minutes. And it really felt real – because Australians don t give standing ovations.Rotten Tomatoes: The film contains some brutal scenes, including two extended rape scenes and then there’s a smashing of a man’s head, shown graphically. How sensitive are you in shooting and editing in terms of how far to take it and how much an audience will be able to take? Kent: I mean yes that s violent, but no more violent than, say, Game of Thrones. But I don t think that s what disturbs people. I think it s all context. For example, if you sat and broke down that big long scene in the hut [in which Franciosi’s character Clare is assaulted by three men], there are only faces. It s just human emotion. That blows my mind that that s what really angers people. And you know, I ve been asked, ‘Do you feel you have the right to put this on screen?’ Well I don t believe in artist censorship for one, but I also think, ‘What are you asking me to censor? Human emotion? Is that what you want me to take out? Human hatred and rage?’ No, I won t do that. A person [at the Q A] last night had said, ‘How are you going to get this film seen across the world, because you show a baby being murdered?’ And I said, ‘No I don t.’ I said, ‘Your mind saw that. I don t show that on screen.’ I ve seen it thousands of times, I know I don t show it.I could tell you all sorts of terrible stories that are documented historically that happened in that period that would just shock you to your core. And I think the only thing I think I can say is, I ask the idea, ‘How far do I need to go?’ And the idea tells me. I m in service to the story. I try with all my heart to tell the purest story I can. It s not about me.(Photo by © IFC Films)Rotten Tomatoes: The film gives audiences an incredibly blunt, unfiltered portrayal of the way indigenous Australians were treated in that period – and for a long time after. It’s like no film I’ve seen in that way. There are rapes; Billy is treated like an animal. You don’t turn away from anything. And it’s confronting and hard to watch at times.Kent: It is. It is. I mean all I can say is the Aboriginal people who worked on the film are so proud of it. You know I wish Baykali [Ganambarr, who plays Billy] was here. He s doing a tour, a world tour with his dance group, but he always says, ‘It s not sugar coated. It s as it was.’ And I m really proud of it.Rotten Tomatoes: Baykali’s performance is incredible in this film. It’s a shock to hear it’s his first role. Kent: He hasn t acted before, but he s an experienced dancer, so he understands performance. I can t speak highly enough of Baykali. I love him and he s a genius actor. Incredibly bright, emotional intelligence. So dedicated. So easy to work with. He just was Billy. He really understood the character. You write a character like that and I thought, ‘How the hell am I gonna, A, find them and, B, direct them?’ It was just meant to be.Rotten Tomatoes: He’s well matched by Aisling. I remember seeing her in The Fall a few years ago and thinking that she stood out. And the character of Clare is fascinating: She’s sympathetic because of what happens to her at the beginning, but then she loses some of our sympathies because of the way she treats Billy initially. She’s racist and brutal in the same way as the British officers. Was there any temptation to smooth those edges down?Kent: No. I mean it s what I tried to do with Essie [Davis], who played Amelia and The Babadook, as well. For example, Amelia going, ‘Oh, my sick kid, I ve got to go home and look after him,’ and then she goes to the shopping center, has ice cream, and sits. She doesn t want to be with her child. It s really important when I m creating characters to find, you know, a human being. We re all complex. And I think Clare is a product of her time. And people were racist. That old man towards the end, there were people like that and that s why he s in there, because there were people who understood that this system was wrong. It wasn t a collective blind spot. There were people like him; he wasn t just a fantasy or hope of mine. People like that existed in history books. They re there. Just not many.(Photo by Matt Nettheim )Rotten Tomatoes: Speaking of horror, because that audience does know you from The Babadook. The movie has a kind of horror structure starting out; something like I Spit On Your Grave or Last House on the Left, with a big brutal thing happening and us expecting then some sort of satisfying revenge. But it doesn’t stick to that at all, and doesn’t give us that.Kent: If you love those movies you ll be terribly frustrated by this film, really, don t you think? Be like, ‘What s going on? What s this with the, you know, compassion and empathy?’ No. I don t want that. But you know it s a backdrop. It s not a right revenge film. It s not.Rotten Tomatoes: [SPOILER WARNING for the end of The Nightingale]. Indeed. She doesn’t even get to be the one who gets to do the avenging in the end. Was there any temptation to have her do the killing and give the audience that catharsis?Kent: Only from the financiers, not from me. I m not interested in giving an audience satisfaction. I think often we re fed stories that are comforting and for all the wrong reasons. And more and more it s happening. I think that s not personally my job to spoon feed people, or make them feel safe, or make them feel better about the world.Rotten Tomatoes: What do you see as your job?Kent: I think my job is to serve the story that comes to me, hopefully on a deeper level. And to move people in some direction. And I can t be responsible. It s like, you put a painting on the wall, but you can t be responsible for how people feel about it. I know in my own life, for example, it s the story I always remind myself of: I saw Mulholland Drive and I hated it. I was so angry, you know, it s two-and-a-half hours long, nearly three hours long, and I was so pissed off. I was like, ‘This is stupid stuff with the box.’ And really irritating. Even though I loved her performance, it really irritated me. Then I ve seen it like 10 times since then. Now I realize it was no problem with the film, it was me that was the problem. I appreciate so much more his vision. And I love it, it s a masterpiece. I never thought that I could change my opinion or feeling about a work of art, but you can. So, we can t as artists bow to what we think people [want], you know. You can t want to be liked.The Nightingale opens in limited release August 2, 2019.

Best-Reviewed Movies 2019: United KingdomThe list of best-reviewed UK releases offers a little something for everyone, from a surprise hit family comedy starring Florence Pugh (Fighting with My Family) and a crowd-pleasing rock biopic featuring a standout performance from Taron Egerton (Rocketman) to an intimate wartime documentary (For Sama) and one about a groundbreaking, perilous journey (Maiden). But it was Peter Jackson s remarkable tribute to the British soldiers of World War I, They Shall Not Grow Old, that rode a wave of universal acclaim to win the category. It s an impressive technical achievement that also serves to remind audiences of the real human impact of war, and it s a thoughtful, fitting celebration of the conflict s centennial anniversary.The order of the rank below reflects the Adjusted Score as of December 31, 2019.

(Photo by Marvel Studios)Name changes are a key part of superhero comics. Spend enough time reading them and you will see as many as four or five characters take the same name — sometimes simultaneously! And as The Falcon and the Winter Soldier draws to a close, we see another name change baked into the story and the credits. It is probably the conclusion everyone expected, but thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic, the series did not wind up completing all of its mission objectives.Oh, and what s all this about Sharon Carter s (Emily VanCamp) old division coming back online?Let s take a look at the final episode of the series to see where it soared, crashed into the Hudson, and teased further Marvel developments.Spoiler alert: The following reveals details of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier episode 6, “One World, One People.” Stop here if you have not watched the episode.One World, One People(Photo by Marvel Studios)And like so many well-intentioned young people on a crusade, the Flag Smashers plot just puttered out. Reportedly, the series was meant to go in a slightly different direction before the pandemic with Karli (Erin Kellyman) getting her hands on a viral agent and using that as part of her extortion for a good cause plan. But the production shutdown forced the series to abandon that storyline entirely in favor of her kidnapping the GRC oversight council (although, it is possible both plans were in play). The thinness of that exchange is palpable even if it led to some good scenes with Sam (Anthony Mackie) debuting his new gear, Bucky (Sebastian Stan) saving people, and even John Walker (Wyatt Russell) proving he can be heroic.In terms of the geopolitical themes Karli brought to the table, though, the series seemingly backed away from them. Sure, Sam brought her underlying message to the GRC council and managed to get some positive movement in that regard, but it may be a little too pat for the complexity of the issues; something both the senator and Sam seem to acknowledge. For the moment, the repatriation plan is off and borders across the world will remain open. The GRC will presumably switch its efforts to helping the returned find their place in the world.At the same time, the global issues the series brushed upon are not as simple as stopping a Mad Titan, and we hope a subsequent series (or even the Captain America 4 feature film reportedly in development) will come back to these ideas. For one thing: the strife these tensions cause could easily be exploited by, say, the unquestioned ruler of Latveria to position himself as global superpower.Then there s Karli herself, who seemed to be headed down the supervillain path. Even her team of Super Soldiers started to doubt her methods. It would ve been interesting to see her make the movement more of a cult of personality. But maybe it is better for the Flag Smasher to be an idea than any one person. Provided, of course, Marvel follows up on the idea. That s Not Black Falcon, That s Captain America (Photo by Marvel Studios)But for all those interesting global issues, the series really revolved around Sam s emotional journey to accepting the Captain America identity. From the financial struggles Black people face on the regular to the way they are used and tossed aside by the military, the series constantly introduced reasons why Sam might not want to wear the U.S. Flag on his chest. And while not all of the points land as successfully as the others — sometimes you just need Isiah Bradley (Carl Lumbly) to just tell you why things are bad — touching upon these issues is important for both the audience and Sam as a character.For just about any would-be superhero, accepting another s legacy is tough. In Sam s case, it s an even bigger ask as Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) was the epitome of the white American ideal; something he mentioned himself in his speech after the GRC attack. Just in terms of physicality, Sam is not that. But then there s also the moral certainty Steve possessed. Some of that came from a privilege Sam will never know and as the show acknowledges, plenty of people from across the racial spectrum will never accept him as Cap. That will always be a factor in Sam s decision making and it makes for a markedly different Captain America.(Photo by Marvel Studios)Perhaps, though, that was always the real point of the show.Meanwhile, it was great to finally see Sam in the suit. Clearly based on the design featured in the Marvel Comics universe from 2014 to 2017, it is a fine adaptation of Sam s bird costume with the stars and stripes. Also, Bucky ordering the suit from Wakanda suggests the wings are vibranium and creates another interesting dimension if the Wakandans felt comfortable wrapping Sam in the American flag. Beyond the racial implications, there is also the issue of colonialism in play. Well, it s there if you want to look for it.But the real defining Captain America moment for Sam was his speech. For the first time since Steve saw him leading that veterans group in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Sam could finally speak with certainty. And though it is easy to read it as the naivete he s exhibited off-and-on throughout the series — and as we already discussed, it lead to a pat resolution — sometimes things just need to be plainly said. And it s clear that Sam s way of speaking won over some people, starting with the first GRC soldier to call him Cap, even if Sam will continue to face opposition from all sides in the years to come.Nevertheless, as the ending title card states, Sam Wilson is Captain America.Zemo s Endgame(Photo by Marvel Studios)While this aspect of the series may not be to everyone s liking, there is something immensely satisfying in seeing Zemo (Daniel Brühl) accomplish his modest goals. It s possible he had more to do in the pre-pandemic version of the series, but there is something really quite nice in a Marvel villain wanting one or two things, doing them, and then retiring to the Raft. Far too often, these characters play four-dimensional chess, and Zemo s direct and simple objective is refreshing.It is always possible, of course, that he has some larger goal in mind. The bombing of the transport containing the other Super Soldiers still feels consistent with his stated goals, but it does leave a question: why didn t he target Walker and Bucky for destruction?Maybe the play here is safety. He is more secure on the Raft than dodging the Dora Milaje out in the open. And as we ve seen, he can execute a plot from just about anywhere. But if his great cause is to eliminate all the superheroes, he still has a lot of work to do.Power Broker Watch: Episode 6 Edition(Photo by Eli Adé. ©Marvel Studios 2021. All Rights Reserved.)Likely shocking no one, Sharon is the Power Broker. The revelation, provided by Karli, may not have been as epic as some might have hoped, but it leads to a few thought-provoking questions about Sharon as a character. First among them: what really caused her to break bad? From her own account, it seems to stem from the fallout of Captain America: Civil War and the aid she gave Steve, Sam, and Bucky. But considering her comments at the end of the stinger scene, she seems purely motivated by profit. And even then, there s Karli s comment that Sharon wants to run the world. As with all the previous evidence for and against Sharon being the Power Broker, her motivation is still unclear.Unless, of course, Sharon is a Skrull.Here us out: the Power Broker s main objective is to get hold of advanced tech — even biotech like the Super Soldier Serum — for the purpose of selling it to bad actors on the global stage. But what if the real intention behind that is to soften the defenses of all the Earthly players as a prelude to the Skrull invasion? We know it s coming. And to do the Secret Invasion plot properly, characters already have to be switched have to be switched out for Skrull agents. Sharon, as the Power Broker, seems like a prime candidate.It does make you question her effectiveness as a spy if viewers keep seeing her hand before Marvel Studios feels compelled to reveal it, though.(Photo by Marvel Studios)Oh, and speaking of spies, isn t interesting that the senator at her pardon hearing mentioned her old division coming back? If you ll recall, Sharon was working for the CIA during Civil War, but was previously an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. Which of those acronyms literally contains the word division? Since we re always looking for confirmation of S.H.I.E.L.D. s status, hearing this mention of the old division has us intrigued. Is Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) back in charge? Or will Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. s Mack (Henry Simmons) finally make his proper MCU debut?Admittedly, we re jumping to a huge conclusion here, but Sharon s own glee at getting access to prototype technology — whether for profit or for Skrull business — suggests the agency is back in some form.Did Bucky Really Do the Work?Debbie DaySo while we re pleased that Bucky finally Yori (Ken Takemoto) the truth about his son, we wonder if he really did the work required of him? The scene ends ambiguously and though we get the subsequent shot of Yori at the sushi place, it is unclear if Bucky was of any service to him. It was the thing Sam prescribed last week and yet, we don t see it. Of course, we never really get Yori s reaction to the revelation, either — anger would be an expected response — so it is all a muddle.Then again, what reaction would be appropriate? Quick forgiveness would feel as pat as the GRC s response to Sam s speech and the (justifiable) anger would be a little too melodramatic at this point in the narrative. Nonetheless, with Sam setting up the notion of service last week, we need to see it.Or, perhaps, that s why the ending title card still credits Bucky as The Winter Soldier. The work is not done even if Bucky left Steve s book finished in Dr. Raynor s (Amy Aquino) office. But considering the series was really about Sam s emotional journey, maybe Captain America 4 or a subsequent season of Captain America and the Winter Soldier will focus more on the things Bucky still needs to do in order to be absolved.The Contessa, The Agent, and The Falcon(Photo by Chuck Zlotnick. ©Marvel Studios 2021. All Rights Reserved.)Getting Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s energy into the MCU as Contesssa Valentina Allegra de la Fontaine may be one of the series most important moves. Though we ve only seen her in two scenes, her perspective on the Marvel world is welcome thing. But there is still plenty of mystery around her. After her first scene, we suggested she might be working for Fury, but her continued aid of Walker — and the U.S. Agent costume she gives him — leads us more toward the Commission on Superhuman Activities; the group Walker answered to in the comics while he was Captain America. They were more focused on U.S. concerns and objectives and that seems to align with what the Contessa has said so far. Well, at least in as much as she gave Walker his new name, which screams USA first! even louder than Captain America.Again, it s still possible she s in league with Fury. Although Walker still possesses a questionable mental state, he acquitted himself well this week and having a Super Soldier to throw against the Skrull invasion is in Fury s best interests. Also, we have to admit, Russell is a welcome presence in the MCU even if Walker vacillates between good soldier and absolute turd. Much like how we ll never forget that Zemo is an aristocrat, we re never going to forget Walker s lies and instability.Also, there are forces besides the U.S. government and Fury who would love to co-opt him for their own designs (Photo by Marvel Studios)But, finally, we want to mention the next Falcon. Although Joaquin Torres (Danny Ramirez) mainly ran tech support for Sam in this series, his comic book counterpart swiftly took on the Falcon persona once it became available. And considering Sam left his old wings with Torres, it is likely we ll see the Falcon fly again before too long. And as the MCU has precious few Latinx superheroes, giving him a spotlight would be a huge step. Also, considering how much we liked him the first episode, we definitely need more Torres.The full season of The Falcon and The Winter Soldier can now be streamed on Disney+.

Spider-Man: Far From Home swung into theaters ahead of the July 4 holiday, ready to snatch up tons of cash and extend the MCU following the events of Infinity War and Endgame. Critics are liking what they see in this second solo(ish) outing for Tom Holland s Peter Parker; the movie is Certified Fresh at 92% on the Tomatometer right now, with reviews throwing praise at Holland, Zendaya, and MCU newcomer Jake Gyllenhaal, as well as the movie s twisty plot and its abundance of big laughs.

4.20.4 9月喜迎The Watch star Richard Dormer grew up reading the work of author Terry Pratchett, whose Discworld books form the basis for the series. Although, as he told Rotten Tomatoes during a recent interview, his regular diet was interrupted, ironically enough, just after the first City Watch novel, Guards! Guards!, was released. I went to drama school, I was about 17, and I gave the book to a classmate and I never got to find out about Sam Vimes, he said.Now 30-odd years later, Dormer stars as Vimes in the BBC America program.The premise sees Vimes as the captain of the Ankh-Morpork City Watch, a police force in a city where organized crimes guilds are more-or-less legalized. The toothlessness of the Watch leaves Vimes plenty of time to drink while his subordinates — werewolf Angua (Marama Corlett), female-presenting dwarf Cheery (Joe Eaton-Kent), and troll Detritus (Ralph Ineson) — wrangle loose chickens and other small-time miscreants not licensed to commit crime. As the series begins, new recruit Carrot (Adam Hugill) arrives with a very different impression of the Watch s purpose, while the sudden appearance of a dragon in Ankh-Morpork forces Sam to be a lawman once again.And if that wasn t enough trouble for the Watch Captain, a ghost from Sam Vimes past turns up and pulls the world out from underneath him, Dormer added. It s the loose threads of Guards! Guards! with various characters (and character names) from later novels subbed in as the show takes great pains to remind viewers it s not directly based on any one novel. Sadly for readers, this means Nobby Nobbs will be waiting in the wings a little longer, but Death (voiced by Wendell Pierce) will make a few appearances in the sprawling city.(Photo by Hayden Phipps/BBCA)For Dormer, discovering Vimes from the inside out was a chance to see the qualities which endeared him to readers in a whole new way. He s pretty broken [at the start], he said. Something happened to him 20 years ago that broke his soul, his spirit, his belief in human beings and in himself. Despite that sense of being fractured (and for reasons that are different from the novels), Vimes still does something noble in assembling the Watch s current roster. He doesn t see color or religion [in our sense of the terms]. If you re a werewolf, as long as you ve got a good heart, you re in. If you re a troll, who cares, as long as you re a good person, Dormer explained. He doesn t realize it, but he s actually a facilitator and able to bring together these unique people to create something that will, ultimately, change the world. Of course, that change is not easy to deal with sometimes — particular for Vimes, who vacillates between a drunken stupor and something Pratchett termed as knurd, a soberness beyond soberness. When we wake up and we see the world for what it is, Dormer explained. We re all intoxicated in some way by something, whether it be social media, whether it be the news — fake news — all these things that we see around us, we re all numbed to the reality of the world. Vimes is cursed with the ability to see [the world] with a clear head and wipe away everything that s in there and declutter, [he] sees things for what they truly are, and it s not easy, the actor said.If not for the circumstances of the city s leadership, Vimes could be an effective town sheriff. For one thing, as Dormer put it, he can tell where he is anywhere in Ankh-Morpork by just the feel of the cobblestones through the worn, thin soles of his boots. And, for another, he has that golden gut TV detectives often rely on.(Photo by Ilze Kitshoff/BBCA)It is those qualities, Dormer surmised, that appeal to Lady Sybil Ramkin (Lara Rossi), a member of the city s aristocracy who comes to associate with the Watch as events unfold. According to the actor, she is this extraordinary creature [who] completely challenges his whole worldview and his view of himself. Like the other characters, she has been remixed for the series — more of a vigilante than an eccentric breeder of small dragons — but she enables him to look around him and see that actually, he s not alone and forsaken and useless. Nevertheless, Vimes still spends plenty of time in his cups, which presented Dormer with a unique acting challenge: As an actor, your mind s got to be crystal clear, because you re spinning plates. You re reacting to people, you re living in the moment of your own truth, but to do it with kind of a glassy-eyed thing where you can t actually focus on who you re talking to [is] a really good acting exercise, he explained.Dormer noted viewers also will see Vimes initial gnarled posture straighten out a bit as his outlook changes: He starts to unfurl, and he almost starts to gain a little bit of height. One aspect of the performance which came naturally to Dormer, though, was the voice. While he admitted it is easy to imagine Vimes with more of a London quality, the producers wanted Dormer to use something closer to his own Armagh accent. He described the opportunity to use something very close to his own voice as both delight and freer, noting, however, that in Discworld, there is no Northern Ireland There s no Scotland, or England, or America, it s just this landmass on a flat world. As in the novels, The Watch takes place in Pratchett s Discworld or, at least, a Discworld somewhere in the multiverse with a few stylistic changes.(Photo by Alex Telfer/BBC STUDIOS/BBCA)Eschewing the more medieval atmosphere described in the books, the look of The Watch is something Dormer describes more as punk rock, crazy, [and] irreverent. Beyond that aesthetic, a tinge of New Wave music and styling invades the proceedings, as does a certain sci-fi-by-way-of-magic feel. There is even a dash of the modern British police drama in some of the sets and costumes. It has hints of Terry Gilliam, and it s got that edginess, Dormer added. He also pointed to the spirit and tone of the 1980s comedy series The Young Ones, which revolved around four punk-leaning students living in a dilapidated flat, as something we tried to do with this. The liberties taken with the look of the show, its plot, the Watch s lineup, and just what happened to Vimes 20 years ago all proved controversial with fans of the author. I can understand. I do, I understand, Dormer said. I mean, I m a fan of Star Trek, I ve actually got communicators, phasers, I ve even got the costume. Nonetheless, he hopes Pratchett fans will still give the series a shot even if it doesn t match the Anhk-Morpork they envision in their heads. The version that we ve done — and I ve seen a lot of it — I m immensely proud of it, I can t imagine a different version of it. So I think what people have got to do is run with it. It s like meeting somebody new for the first time. They may look different from what you d imagined in your head, but that doesn t mean you re going to hate them, Dormer said. At first, I think I was a bit, Aww, I don t have chain mail and a truncheon and a silly metal hat,' he added, referring to the Night Watch gear the characters use in the novels. But soon, he was in love with the look of the costumes. Really now I look at it, and I think all of the characters, they look already iconic even though the show hasn t even gone into the world. I think that s a testament to the creative people, and everybody involved, that we ve created something I know that if I live for another 20 years, I ll look back and go, Wow, they couldn t do that now, and they couldn t have done it 30 years before it was done.' (Photo by Helen Sloan/courtesy of HBO)The Watch represents Dormer s second go with a notable character from a beloved author s fantasy series. He played the seemingly unkillable Beric Dondarrion on Game Of Thrones since its third season — a role he tends to get recognized for in airports or, as he joked, when I grow my beard and wear an eye patch. Reminiscing about his time in Westeros, Dormer recalled talking with author George R.R. Martin at the season 8 premiere about the nature of Beric as a Fire Wight. As outlined, Beric is as dead as any of the mindless ice zombies in the service of the Night King, but since he was reanimated with fire by Thoros of Myr (Paul Kaye), he seemed more alive even if his heart never started beating again. During this conversation, Martin pointed out scenes in previous seasons where Beric was seen sleeping or drinking.Dormer had a perfect response: In order to make people comfortable, Beric will lie in the shadows, but his eye is always open. When you see him with a flask, he s not drinking, he s miming. Martin has since broached the topic of Fire Wights in some discussions of the Song of Ice and Fire novels, but it remains to be seen if it will effect the story of Beric s successor, Lady Stoneheart, for whom he sacrificed his unnatural life to save.
The first How To Train Your Dragon remains one of the five biggest word-of-mouth sensations ever to open in March in over 2,500 theaters. Then How To Train Your Dragon 2 opened just a bit better than its predecessor in the summer of 2014. This weekend, the final chapter of the animated trilogy is living up to all the expectations its predecessors have set.King of the Crop: Dragon Poised To Become Franchise’s Biggest Success(Photo by Universal Pictures)How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World maintains the strong critical support of the series, registering a 91% on the Tomatometer compared to the first two s 98% 92%, respectively. The 2010 original opened to .7 million and finished with 7.5 million (a 4.97 multiple) and the 2014 sequel started with .4 million and ended with 7 million (a 3.57 multiple.) The Hidden World was expected to gross somewhere in-between that range but instead defied the tracking services and made .5 million over the weekend. That is the eighth best opening ever in February, the second for an animated film behind The Lego Movie’s million start, and the biggest opening of 2019 until Captain Marvel opens in two weeks. And with a production budget that has shrunk from 5 to 5 to 9 million, The Hidden World is going to be the most profitable film in the series.Rotten Returns: Why Are We (Not) Fighting?(Photo by WWE Films)How To Train Your Dragon was not the only film to register over 90% on the Tomatometer this weekend, but audiences just were not swayed to attend Fighting with My Family. The Stephen Merchant wrestling dramedy opened to just million after a four-theater limited stint last week produced 8,780. The selling of Dwayne Johnson’s two-scene cameo (as himself) and a “surprise” screening at Sundance to build buzz a month ago was not enough to get it into eight digits. The Top Ten And Beyond: Alita Takes A Dive, But The Upside Reaches Milestone(Photo by 20th Century Fox)While box office analysts have been fighting the good fight for Alita: Battle Angel all week, this weekend’s numbers tell a much different story. Sure it is important to watch the international dollars flow in – and they are to the current tune of nearly 4 million – but as I mentioned here last week anything under 0 million domestic means it is unlikely to break even. Of the 16 films with an opening weekend between -29 million, Alita’s million is the second lowest second weekend ever, ahead of only last year’s Pacific Rim: Uprising. Thanks to an extra day on the schedule and previews on Jan. 31, Alita is just about even with Uprising total’s .3 million gross but it is getting nowhere close to 0 million here in the U.S. and is still going to need around 0 million to get out of the red.By tomorrow, The Upside should hit the 0 million mark as it continues to chase Glass, which at 7.9 million appears will finish south of The Village’s 4 million. The Lego Movie 2 is not there yet, but it will be despite its final estimates being downgraded to the 0 million range rather than 0. Ralph Breaks the Internet will be hitting 0 million domestic this week and it has cleared over 4 million worldwide.It’s going to take What Men Want and Isn’t It Romantic to pool their resources to reach 0 million. Both Cold Pursuit and Happy Death Day 2U are going to come in somewhere around million each. Roadside Attractions’ Run the Race (40% at RT) made it into the Top Ten with .27 million. Finally, Peter Jackson’s WWI documentary, They Shall Not Grow Old, has now grossed .4 million, now more than what Mortal Engines made in its theatrical run.This Time Last Year: T’Challa Ruled But A Pair Of Future Classics Were Born(Photo by © Marvel Studios)Black Panther was going nowhere from the #1 spot with 1.6 million, which was the second highest second weekend of all time behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens. That was until Avengers: Infinity War came along a few months later and knocked it back to third. Ryan Coogler’s film passed the 0 million mark in just its tenth day. Opening against it were two films that have already begun to stand the test of time. Game Night (84%) opened in second to million and Alex Garland’s Annihiliation (88%) was fourth with million. Those films helped raise the average of the Top Ten on the Tomatometer to 61.5% as they grossed 7 million. This year’s Top Ten grossed 2.0 And averaged 66.1% on the Tomatometer.On the Vine: Madea Aims For #1 And Neil Jordan Returns To Wide Release(Photo by Lionsgate)Tyler Perry returns with his first directorial effort in four months with A Madea Family Funeral. Perry has not cracked the million mark since 2016 but when his most famous character appears in the title those films have averaged a .7 million opening and a final gross of .6 million. Focus is also going wide with Neil Jordan’s latest, Greta. The 2018 Toronto Film Festival premiere has a 71% on the Tomatometer and is Jordan’s first wide release since 2007’s The Brave One.The Full Top 10: February 15-18How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (2019) 90% – .52 million (.02 million total)Alita: Battle Angel (2019) 61% – .00 million (.68 million total)The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part (2019) 84% – .01 million (.61 million total)Fighting With My Family (2019) 93% – .01 million (.01 million total)Isn't It Romantic (2019) 70% – .51 million (.7 million total)What Men Want (2019) 41% – .20 million (.06 million total)Happy Death Day 2U (2019) 71% – .98 million (.61 million total)Cold Pursuit (2019) 68% – .3 million (.08 million total)The Upside (2017) 43% – .21 million (.74 million total)Run the Race (2018) 40% – .27 million (.27 million total)

清风围棋下载 King of the Crop: Shazam! Could be the Ant-Man of the DCEU(Photo by @ Warner Bros. Pictures)DC’s Shazam! led the box office with .45 million this weekend, on top of the .3 million it earned in early preview screenings. That was higher than projections. Even though that is the lowest opening in the DC Extended Universe, knocking the film for that fact would be like giving Ant-Man a hard time for not living up to the numbers of Captain America or Iron Man. Shazam! is a different beast than the mostly darker offerings from the DCEU, something that critics appear to dig. Shazam! has scored a 91% on the Tomatometer, just shy of the 92% of Wonder Woman. That is also higher than two of the Christopher Nolan Batman films – Batman Begins and The Dark Knight Rises – which are a universe apart from the current DC crop.Shazam! now currently owns the ninth-best opening weekend ever in April; that will be knocked back to 10th on April 26 when Avengers: Endgame opens. Among the 10 films that had the biggest ever April openings, the low bar for ultimate totals has been set by Fast and Furious (5 million) and 2010’s Clash of the Titans (3.2 million). The two best multiples among April’s top 10 were earned by A Quiet Place (3.74 times its opening weekend) and 2016’s The Jungle Book (3.52). Their Tomatometer scores were both 95%. Audience word-of-mouth looks to be solid for Shazam!, which bodes well for its future. The R-rated Hellboy is unlikely to eat into the DC hit s core audience, and if it can maintain a drop less than 45% it should be on track to earn at least 2 million, and potentially out-earn the original Ant-Man’s 0 million.Rotten Returns: Best Of Enemies Struggles to Find Allies (Photo by @ STX)The Best of Enemies opened with .5 million from 1,705 theaters, representing STX Entertainment s seventh-lowest opening per-theater-average. Critics were mixed on the the movie – it has a 52% Tomatometer score – and audiences didn t show up in impressive numbers. STX had a better month back in January with their Weinstein Co. pickup, The Upside, which remains one of the five highest-grossing films of the year with 7 million. That was the second-best tally (behind Bad Moms) for the studio in its nearly four-year history.The Rest of the Top 10 and Beyond: Stephen King Continues to Draw Crowds, but Can Sematary Match the Original?(Photo by Paramount Pictures)A smart bit of counter-programming from Paramount Pictures saw the newest take on Stephen King s Pet Sematary land in second place with million, despite a less than stellar response from critics. The movie received glowing reviews after its premiere at the South By Southwest Film Festival, but is now just barely Fresh with 61% on the Tomatometer. That is better than the reviews for Mary Lambert’s 1989 verion of Pet Sematary (48% with 31 reviews), but without strong word-of-mouth there may now be some doubt that the new movie can reach the .4 million that the original film made 30 years ago. (That is about 7 million in today’s dollars.)There seems little hope that directors Kevin Kölsch Dennis Widmyer’s version can match those inflation numbers off of a million weekend. Among eight horror films that have opened between million and million, only The Visit and 2005’s The Amityville Horror managed to pass million. (Each actually made .2 million.) Another two films – the 2013 s Evil Dead and 2015 s Poltergeist – appear to be more in line with audience response and dropped a respective 63.2% and 64.4% in their second weekends. Tune in next week to see which way Pet Sematary goes.(Photo by @ Universal)Meanwhile, another horror film is climbing the charts of the all-timers. Jordan Peele’s Us is now ahead of 2018’s Halloween after 17 days, with 2.3 million vs. the latter film s 0.2 million total. That’s the second-highest ever for a horror film. It also bested Halloween’s third weekend (.8 million to .8 million). Pet Sematary took some viewers away from Us this weekend but more people will still be talking about Us next week as it continues to forge a path towards 0 million. Its international total is 6.5 million.One film not headed to 0 million – at least not on the domestic front – is Tim Burton’s Dumbo. It is the 13th film from Disney released in over 3,000 theaters to drop 60% or more in its second weekend. With million after 10 days that puts Dumbo behind 1999’s Tarzan, Lilo Stitch, and Wild Hogs on the Disney charts. The film has made an additional 7.5 million internationally for a total of 3 million to date. It is going to need more than half-a-billion to break even.Good thing that Captain Marvel’s numbers are still looking super. Its 4 million domestic take is the 19th highest gross ever after 31 days of release. And the .6 million it earned this weekend is the 21st best fifth weekend ever. It is now the 37th film to cross the billion mark globally (and the seventh Marvel Cinematic Universe film to do so) and it continues to climb both of those charts. This weekend it also become the 30th highest-grossing film ever.This Time Last Year: A Quiet Place Began Its Record-Breaking Run(Photo by Jonny Cournoyer/Paramount)John Krasinski’s A Quiet Place opened to .2 million, beginning its run towards becoming one of the biggest horror films of all time. The Universal comedy Blockers came in third with .5 million and the Ted Kennedy drama Chappaquiddick opened in seventh with .7 million. Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One was just two days away from passing 0 million domestically. That movie s .6 million second weekend helped the top 10 films gross a total of 0.86 million with an average Tomatometer score of 60.9%. This year’s top 10 grossed an estimated 8.59 million and averaged 64.7% on the Tomatometer.On the Vine: Hellboy Offers Darker Fare, Little Riffs on Big(Photo by Eli Joshua Ade /@ Universal)If Shazam! was too family-friendly for you and you cannot wait until Avengers: Endgame, then Lionsgate’s reboot of Hellboy with Stranger Things’ David Harbour might satisfy your hunger for R-rated comic-book fare. Once there was Tom Hanks in Big, now Universal presents Regina Hall in Little, a modern reversal in every respect that sprung from the mind of 14-year-old black-ish star Marsai Martin. Laika Animation is back with its latest, Missing Link, and Aviron releases the adaptation of young adult novel, After. Then for one night only on Wednesday, April 10, you can see Terry Gilliam’s The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, a film 21 years in the making.The Full Top 10: April 5-7Shazam!

That deeper exploration led to characters who are not just greatly expanded from their comic book counterparts, but deeply changed. Oleff’s Stanley, for example, may still love pot, but that’s where the similarities end. “I read the script for the show first and didn’t recognize the character [in the novel] at all,” he said. In the book, the character’s only real interests are smoking and selling pot. Additionally, Oleff found him “colder” toward the novel’s version of Sydney. On screen, he makes bold fashion choices, listens to a wide array of records (on vinyl), and supports Sydney well beyond the role of drug dealer. “He’s there to help her and he’s really there to be the best person he can be to her,” he said of the upgraded Stanley.“He is so richly unadulterated. He s just so himself,” added Hall. “It s like it s the version of me that I wished I d been in high school as well. It s just that kind of peeling away of that need to please, and that need to be accepted by way of putting on a false version of yourself that others accept.”Dina, Sydney’s best friend, also represents one of the more radical departures from the graphic novel. Instead of the nihilistic punk rock girl barely invested in any part of her reality, the television Dina is, as Bryant put it “this cool and fun and confident best friend to Syd.” She also envisions having a life beyond high school and even cares about Brad.“She’s reliant on Brad [in the book],” she recalled. “But it seems like she hates him.” Like Oleff, it led to some reflection on the character in the scripts and even some puzzlement on how the characters relate to one another. But she came to ultimately understand this alternate Dina. And in building the character up from the dysfunctional version in the novel, Bryant felt the characters also avoids certain pitfalls of the black best friend trope often seen in YA series. “I think with trying to give her more layers in general, it really is us trying to explain and have everyone represented not only by race, but the things they’re going through, she said. Yes, Dina is a PoC, but it’s more about how she goes through the things in her life and how the people around her impact her life.”(Photo by Netflix)And while Ellis found Brad to be an even more despicable character in the book, he appreciated the chance to play a person with little-to-no filter. “I look at it as a lot more fun than challenging, he said. When you can take that pressure off of yourself, you can really be awful and there are no consequences for it. If anything, it’s encouraged to lean into that character trait.” Granted, he and Bryant both agreed there must be something positive Dina sees in him – even if Sydney cannot fathom it. “We only see his worst qualities [though Sydney]. To be someone who is well liked, he has to be charming and funny,” Ellis said.Reflecting on the way the show still acknowledges Sydney’s perspective, Oleff noted Stanley and Dina are more “fleshed out” people while Brad remains something closer to a caricature.To Lillis, the way Sydney interacts with Stanley and Bryant’s Dina marks one the best ways the show builds on the foundation of the book. “She has all these people” – mainly Stanley and Dina – “but everything goes wrong and it feels like she has nothing there,” she said. “With the series There’s so much more to life and so much more happening. It’s less this tense feeling of being stuck.”(Photo by Netflix)Nevertheless, there is still some sense of being stuck for Sydney. She is an ill-fit at school, she may want Dina to be more than her best friend, and even the powers, awesome as they are, come from a feeling Hall felt was quite recognizable — “If people really knew what was going on inside of me, people really knew what a freak I was, then I would be deemed unlovable.”“She has no control and has no idea where she is with any of it, and that s kind of right in the middle of the whirlpool of something that could be considered a depression,” added Entwistle. And while just about every teenage feels like a freak, Sydney’s power genuinely set her apart and create a sense that she could be dangerous – a common feeling for teenagers given a very palpable reality in the show.That authenticity, both in terms of Sydney’s fears about her powers and her feelings for Dina, were important elements Lillis felt the show had to explore. “Everyone’s process is different, but it’s good to interpret that and show that. It’s what high school life is and what it’s like to grow up and find out who you are. You get to really see that in Sydney,” she said.Entwistle also felt the coming of age story and the emergence of her powers all lead to a powerful theme about adolescence. “When you learn to take on the mantle of becoming an adult it also means taking on bad stuff and good stuff, and learning to live with it,” he said.In finding these themes, expanding the characters, and making one or two other alterations we cannot mention for the sake of spoilers, I Am Not Okay With This becomes an indie rock superhero tale with an interesting hook.“What s the superhero origin story if Professor X never shows up at your house or Hagrid never comes to take you to Hogwarts?” is how Entwistle put it.It is a question both he and Hall hope to answer in subsequent seasons. It also something the cast hope to explore even as they hope to maintain the series unique balance of fantastic powers and high school angst.I Am Not Okay With This is now streaming on Netflix.

One of two things could be happening this weekend: Either Vin Diesel is somewhere smiling thinking that The Fast and the Furious series is not as big without him or the entire series itself is starting to wane – at least here in America. Hobbs Shaw actually had an opening that both Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham can brag is higher than any of their previous starring vehicles, but as part of this particular franchise, its domestic numbers are not nearly as impressive.King of the Crop: Hobbs Shaw Leads Weekend But Trails Franchise Numbers(Photo by Universal)Fast Furious Presents: Hobbs Shaw opened to .8 million this weekend. That is higher than either Johnson’s San Andreas (.58 million) or Statham’s The Meg (.40 million), but it is lower than any of the films since 2009, when both Diesel and Paul Walker returned for the first time together back to the series. That started this cinematic phenomenon that began with a .95 million opening that increased to .19 million in 2011, then .37 in 2013. After Walker’s untimely death, the series had the same kind of bump in interest that The Dark Knight had in 2008. Nolan’s film opened to 8.41 million six months after Heath Ledger’s passing. After a delay in the release for Furious 7, it opened in April 2017 to the highest Tomatometer score in the series (81%) and a weekend of 7.18 million, which at the time was the ninth biggest opening ever. That opening is now 24th best, but it is still the eighth-highest ever worldwide with .516 billion.The Fate of the Furious was to continue its global dominance with .236 billion (good for 17th all-time – though will soon be passed by The Lion King) but its domestic gross of 6 million fell behind the sixth and seventh chapters. If Hobbs Shaw followed in sync with the rest of the series, it should have had no worse than the third-best August opening ever. Alas, it will have to settle for s
清风围棋下载 Sonic the Hedgehog had a lot of hurdles to overcome, from the fan backlash to its character design (and the subsequent production delay in response) to the general low expectations that come with video game movies. Fortunately, based on the relatively positive reception of the Sega adaptation, many fans and families will find this to be a pleasant surprise. Mostly harmless fun with a scene-stealing throwback performance from Jim Carrey, Sonic is nothing revolutionary but is hardly a prickly affair either.Here’s what critics are saying about Sonic the Hedgehog:Is it better than expected?I admit I had my reserves about Sonic the Hedgehog, but it completely blew my mind. Tessa Smith, Mama s GeekyRaise your expectations. Sonic the Hedgehog is the first cinema surprise of the year. Julian Roman, MovieWebA movie miracle or at the very least an unexpected surprise, this adaptation… largely presses all the right buttons — and even does so in the right order. Oliver Jones, ObserverAre the updated visuals worth the wait?The effects, while maintaining fidelity to the popular video game, turned out stellar. Yolanda Machado, The WrapYou know what, it works. It’s a really effective rendering of the classic character many of us grew up playing. Wenlei Ma, News.com.auNot only did the animators go above and beyond in fixing Sonic to look more like his video game origins, but they might’ve saved the movie. Dami Lee, The VergeThe filmmakers were able to get what amounts to a stuffed toy to emote more successfully than, say, the filmmakers behind last summer’s The Lion King. Oliver Jones, ObserverIn the finished film this new, cartoony Sonic might be more aesthetically pleasing, but he’s a bizarre outlier in an otherwise photorealistic world. Huw Fullerton, Radio Times(Photo by Paramount Pictures)How does it rate as a video game movie?Sonic the Hedgehog succeeds where so many other video game adaptations fail because it captures the spirit of the games and the character. Spencer Perry, ComicBook.comSonic the Hedgehog is a fairly middling family-friendly adventure movie, but a comparably good video game adaptation. A.A. Dowd, AV ClubYou might have to go all the way back to 1993’s Super Mario Bros. to find such a striking disconnect between the experience of playing something at home and watching it in a theater. David Ehrlich, IndieWireIt’s not quite Detective Pikachu, but it’s fun enough. Huw Fullerton, Radio TimesHow is Jim Carrey?Sonic offers Jim Carrey in a performance almost as full-tilt as those of his mid- 90s heyday. . John DeFore, Hollywood ReporterCarrey’s physicality and comedic timing evoke memories of his Ace Ventura and Liar Liar heyday, proving the gifted comedian hasn’t lost his touch. Akeem Lawanson, IGNThis is peak Carrey, a delightfully unhinged, physical performance reminiscent of his work in Ace Ventura or The Mask. Wenlei Ma, News.com.auCarrey is the film’s most prized weapon…his vitality makes an otherwise routine endeavor worthwhile. The movie is fine, but the villain’s a delight. Bilge Ebiri, VultureHe’s far more animated than Sonic. And far too good for this. Steve Rose, Guardian(Photo by Paramount Pictures)And James Marsden?Marsden manages to mine the heartwarming moments with Sonic even if it’s ultimately not a standout turn in his career. Akeem Lawanson, IGNTo Marsden’s credit, there’s a natural camaraderie… which is impressive given that the critter was likely represented on set by a tennis ball on a stick. Jake Cole, SlantIs the movie funny?I found myself laughing out loud several times, and yes, I even shed a few tears. Tessa Smith, Mama s GeekyOne of the strengths of the film is that it s always throwing new gags and jokes at the audience, so even if one doesn t work, there s another right around the corner that arrives as quickly as Sonic himself. Spencer Perry, ComicBook.comGets away with [one fart joke], otherwise bypassing the all-too-common cheap laughs for a story that’s loaded with smart humor [and] snappy dialogue. Kristen Page-Kirby, Washington PostThe jokes are almost all uniformly awful, following a formula of some zany thing happening and a character merely describing aloud what just happened in an incredulous voice. Jake Cole, Slant(Photo by Paramount Pictures)How is the script?The script itself is very light-hearted, even with undercurrents about being an outsider and the loneliness that comes with it. Yolanda Machado, The WrapEven when grappling with potentially heavy themes like government-sponsored drone warfare and situational depression, Sonic the Hedgehog never loses its buoyant sense of storytelling. Oliver Jones, ObserverSonic the Hedgehog has a terrific script. Screenwriters Patrick Casey and Josh Miller infuse a lot of creativity into the Japanese source material. Julian Roman, MovieWebSonic the Hedgehog is frustratingly old-school in its condescension, as the filmmakers constantly hold the audience’s hand. Jake Cole, SlantWriters Patrick Casey and Josh Miller spend too much time trying to modernize Sonic… but they sacrifice so much of his character in the process. Rendy Jones, Rendy ReviewsIs it strictly for fans of the game?First and foremost for Sonic fans. If you’ve been there for the little blue fella these past 29 years… then Sonic the Hedgehog is the love letter you’re probably looking for. If you’ve never really cared for the Blue Blur, you’ll probably want to avoid this flick like one of Dr. Robotnik’s badniks. Akeem Lawanson, IGNIf you spent your afternoons collecting rings and battling Dr. Robotnik as a kid like I did, you will LOVE this movie. Tessa Smith, Mama s GeekyFans of the video games will find a host of allusions, but there’s plenty to please any moviegoer who can’t tell a Sega from a Switch. Kristen Page-Kirby, Washington Post(Photo by Paramount Pictures)Is it really family-friendly?Make no mistake, Sonic The Hedgehog is a kids’ movie, but there’s enough here for their parents so that it’s not a total slog. Wenlei Ma, News.com.auSonic is a children’s movie that recognizes it may be kids’ first introduction to the hedgehog, so it makes minimal references to the video game world he comes from. Dami Lee, The VergeSonic the Hedgehog is what a family movie should be – entertaining, delightful, a good story, fun for all ages, and packed with life lessons. Tania Lamb, Lola LambchopsFew but diehard fans and young children will be charmed by this predictable, derivative caper. Steve Rose, GuardianAny major complaints?It’s not a great sign of creative storytelling when a kids film plugs Amazon, Zillow, and Olive Garden in the span of a single scene, without a trace of irony. David Ehrlich, IndieWireI can put up with product placement that is tastefully done but if we pay for a ticket to a movie we don’t expect to constantly see advertisements especially in movies for children. Rachel Wagner, Rachel s ReviewsSonic could ve used more of the attitude that made him Sega s antithesis to Nintendo s Mario during the video game console wars. Travis Hopson, Punch Drunk CriticsTo add insult to injury, they added a sassy Black woman stereotype. Why is this present in 2020 and in a Sonic movie? Rendy Jones, Rendy ReviewsWill audiences want more?It has me beyond hyped for a sequel. Tessa Smith, Mama s GeekyHopefully Sonic the Hedgehog will get the chance to explore its world and take more risks in a followup. Molly Freeman, ScreenRantSonic the Hedgehog is in theaters on February 14.
