不得不说UZI这波操作确实是有思考的，一方面是英雄联盟手游刚开始能够抢占先机，提前进行训练和挑选，另一方面手游的发展确实是今后的主流，必然是有很大的发展及竞争空间，Uzi这一波是在时间和项目上抢占了先机。 Ahead of the release of Illumination’s The Grinch, Rotten Tomatoes borrowed Fandango kid correspondent Ariana Raetz for the day and sat down with stars Benedict Cumberbatch – who plays the mean one himself – and Cameron Seely, who voices Cindy-Lou Who. Cumberbatch reveals the first time he came across the infamous character, while Seely recalls her time in the recording booth (a lot of the time she was directed via Skype). Both actors also reveal how this 2018 take on the story differs from the original book, the beloved Boris Karloff cartoon, and Ron Howard’s 2000 film.The Grinch is currently in theaters everywhere.
还有就是补刀机制，在LOL手游中即便补不到刀，也会有额外的金币。当然了，这个金币数量肯定是要比补到的兵少一些，但这也大大增加了装备成型的时间。让游戏时长变得更短。电子平台登录(Photo by Zade Rosenthal/Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)All Jeremy Renner Movies RankedJeremy Renner got his worst movie out of the way early with National Lampoon s Senior Trip, his feature debut which notched an impressive 0% in 1995. Renner essentially vanished from the big screen for years, notably returning in 2002 as the title Jeffrey in the Dahmer biopic. Obviously, this was going to be one dynamic, unpredictable movie career.He s since done well in Certified Fresh efforts like Arrival, The Town, and The Hurt Locker which got him a Best Actor Oscar nom. Renner was also for a time the guy you apparently hired when you re trying to figure out how to extend the life of your franchise. Think Bourne Legacy, which he starred in before Matt Damon decided to return to the spy series. Or how about Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, where he was obviously being groomed to take over for Ethan Hunt, until Tom Cruise and Christopher McQuarrie decided to throw the series into overdrive with Rogue Nation and Fallout.Even his Hawkeye in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has had a strange trajectory, like an arrow curving around in the wind. It started with an odd cameo in Thor, being brainwashed in the first Avengers, and becoming quip-master general in Age of Ultron. And in case you thought he was under-appreciated, his absence from Infinity War led to half the life in the universe whipped to dust. Of course, everything got all wrapped up in Endgame, so now we re ranking the best Jeremy Renner movies (and the worst) by Tomatometer!

Roll call! The 90s-set sitcom Schooled, ABC’s The Goldbergs spin-off, follows teachers of suburban Philadelphia high school William Penn Academy as Goldbergs troublemaker Lainey Lewis (AJ Michalka) returns home in search of a fresh start after failing to hack together a music career.Lainey enlists quintessential helicopter mom Beverly Goldberg (Wendy McLendon-Covey) to help her score a job as a music teacher at her alma mater, where former guidance counselor John Glasgott (Tim Meadows) is now principal. There, Lainey reconnects with Coach Rick Mellor (Bryan Callen) — who, despite the leap of fashion between the 80s and the 90s, has decided to keep his super-short gym shorts — and meets Charlie C.B. Brown, a spunky English teacher played by Jane the Virgin s Brett Dier. Clancy Brown appears as woodworking teacher Mr. Crosby.The Goldbergs captures the fashion, music, and culture of the 80s through the lens of a loving (if sometimes goofy) family, and always ends with a heartwarming word of advice. Schooled features similar one-liners, fast cuts, and sitcom gags that will have fans roaring, but with 90s style. Despite its grunge-era setting, the cast told Rotten Tomatoes on a visit to the show s Los Angeles set recently that it s one of the most optimistic sitcoms on television right now. It s optimistic, and it s not cynical, and these are teachers that care and make a difference, Callen told us. Below, Callen and his castmates help break down everything you need to know about their sitcom.Read on to learn the ABCs of Schooled.A: AJ Michalka is back(Photo by Eric McCandless/ABC)After breaking off her engagement with the oldest Goldberg brother and attempting to kick-start her music career, Michalka’s Lainey wants a fresh start.“Cut to however many years later in the 90s — she’s failed at music, tried to tour, tried to get signed, tried to be a part of anything she could,” Michalka said of Lainey’s headspace when she returns to Jenkintown, Pennsylvania, to seek a steady job.How does she end up as the new music teacher at her old high school, William Penn?“She gets a hold of Beverly Goldberg,” Michalka said, and true to Beverly’s Goldbergs pushiness, “Glascott can t say no.”B: Band geek Tim Meadows?(Photo by Eric McCandless/ABC)Meadows also returns and co-stars in Schooled as compassionate Principal John Glasgott, based on the real-life principal of show creator Adam Goldberg’s youth in Pennsylvania.Some fans might recognize Meadows as Mr. Duvall in Mean Girls or from his years on Saturday Night Live. But what kind of student was the actor-comedian in high school?“I was a band geek, basically,” Meadows told RT. “I can play saxophone, clarinet, flute, and then I started playing the oboe when I was in my senior year,” he said. It was the oboe that got him to think twice about continuing in the band: “It was the first time that I saw myself as being a total nerd,” he laughed.While music is a defining element of Michalka’s role on the show, Meadows said we shouldn’t hold our breath waiting for him to appear dancing or playing the saxophone on Schooled.“I begged for them not to put me in any musical numbers,” he said. “I’m not a good dancer. The first time I ever asked a girl to dance when I was in school, I didn t really know how to dance… I just started flailing my limbs, and I kicked her in the shin, and her leg started bleeding.”C: Coach Rick Mellor returns(Photo by Erica Parise/ABC)What would Principal Glasgott be without his sports-centric rival, Coach Rick Mellor?Callen said that while it might look like Coach Rick is the macho counterpart to Glasgott’s softness, Coach also leads with compassion.“Coach Rick is an emotional guy, but he hides it,” Callen said. Ultimately, being both a sports coach and a life coach for his students is what gives Coach Rick’s life meaning: “His life is being a P.E. teacher, and being a coach, and making a difference and watching kids grow — and instilling in them of values and principles that they ll take with them for the rest of their life.”Of course, Coach Rick’s ego took a blow when Glasgott was promoted as principal over him. And Lainey’s return to William Penn throws him off his game a little bit.“Coach Mellor believes in one kind of strength, and that is athletic strength — speed, power, agility,” Callen said. “But Glascott and Lainey show Coach that there are different kinds of strength.”D: Dier joins the cast(Photo by Craig Sjodin/ABC)You might know Dier as Det. Michael Cordero from Jane the Virgin (a.k.a. Jane’s fiancé), or maybe you recognize him as Luke Matheson from Pretty Little Liars spin-off Ravenswood. In Schooled, he plays Charlie “C.B.” Brown, a kindhearted teacher who absolutely loves his job. Dier told us that Charlie is playful, the kind of teacher he would want as a high schooler. He s goofy, he makes it fun, said Dier, This guy is like basically a big kid that knows information. Dier’s Charlie Brown helps welcome Lainey to William Penn when she’s first hired by helping her connect with the students.“I kind of take her under my wing,” Dier said, for instance when Charlie tells Lainey, “‘You have to relate to them, you have to make it fun.’”E: English teacher Charlie C.B. BrownCharlie teaches English, but he also “runs a ton of clubs,” including a “Wizard’s Club,” according to Dier. He said Schooled features “tons of 90s references” and he loves it. “I’m kind of reliving my childhood right now, through the show,” he said.F: Fire!Dier says he once almost lit a classroom on fire in high school. How, you ask? He blames instant ramen. I heated up ramen, and it almost exploded, he confessed, but his drama teacher was “really cool about it.” Dier draws inspiration from that teacher, in fact, when portraying Charlie Brown on Schooled.“He felt like a friend and that’s why I think he inspired so many kids,” Dier said of his real-life high school drama teacher. “I also imagine how I would want to be taught as a kid.”G: Goldbergs tradition — Beverly gets what Beverly wants(Photo by John Fleenor/ABC)What could possibly make Principal Glasgott hire Lainey, a troublemaker in high school with absolutely no teaching experience? It’s simple, said Meadows: “What makes me hire Lainey is Beverly Goldberg.”In The Goldbergs, Beverly is famous for making demands of the teachers at William Penn. At the start of every year, she marches into the principal’s office and hands over a list of the classes her children will be taking — class assignments be damned. Beverly Goldberg gets what Beverly Goldberg wants. And on Schooled, it’s no different.Glasgott hires Lainey to get Beverly “out of my hair,” Meadows said. But there’s also something in it for him: “I think my character also loves the fact that he’s still teaching Lainey… giving her a job and taking her under his wing is still a part of teaching her.”H: High school movie recommendations and The Haunting of Hill HouseWhat’s Meadows’ quintessential high school movie?“Mean Girls, obviously,” he said. “Heathers would probably be second, Clueless third.” After a pause, he admitted that he loves Bring It On, too. “That’s a good one where people are funny dancing,” he laughed.And when asked what he’s bingeing right now, Dier admitted he “just finished” The Haunting of Hill House on Netflix and loved it for the same reason we did: “That sixth episode where there’s an 18-minute oner,” he said. “That was insane.”I: InternetLainey actually uses that great early- 90s technology known as The Internet to find the job. Then, after failing to convince Principal Glasgott that she s the woman for the job, Lainey enlists Beverly s help to persuade him.J: Jealousy (Photo by Eric McCandless/ABC) [Coach Rick and Principal Glasgott] butt heads a little bit, but they’ve been friends for a long time,” Meadows said. “There’s a little jealousy in the very beginning, because Coach Mellor thinks that he should be [principal], too.”Callen said that Coach and Glasgott often clash over philosophical differences. Principal Glasgott is “trying to reinvent the wheel” with less strict teaching methods. “Problem is, Rick Mellor is working off the knowledge and wisdom of the ancients, said Callen.Eventually the dust settles and the two balance each other out, in large part because Lainey and Charlie bring their own values and skills to William Penn, too.“You need the young to kind of break those molds,” Callen said, and Lainey and Charlie definitely shake things up.K: Kids, kids, kidsWhile Lainey doesn’t plan on sticking around William Penn long-term, she eventually changes her tune.“She’s a mess for the first few episodes,” Michalka said with a laugh. But soon, Lainey finds meaning and value in building her students’ confidence and learning from them, too. “She ends up really relating with some of these kids because in some of them she sees herself.”L: Lainey s teaching style Some people peaked in high school; others dread ever returning. Lainey’s transition is softened by her old mentors, Principal Glasgott and Coach Mellor.“Having Glascott and Mellor kind of grounds her, because those are the guys that also helped raise her,” Michalka said. Coach Mellor gives Lainey a sense of belonging, and she gains a new sense of respect for Glasgott: “She can t but notice Glasgott really does run this place, and his kind of nurture for the school is something that she really looks up to.”Lainey uses her high school experiences to understand her students — sometimes to connect with them, other times to stay a couple steps ahead of their pranks. “Because there is kind of a rebellious, hip edge to her, the kids see that as a fun way to learn,” said Michalka.And while her teaching mechanisms are bizarre, she stays one step ahead of her students because she invented all their tricks for skipping class and sneaking around. That allows her to discover a really great way to hone in what she wants, get the kids to another level, and also accomplish what she needs to accomplish in order to make Glascott happy.”M: Music (Photo by Eric McCandless/ABC)“Music s a big part of the show,” Michalka said, but not just because of Lainey’s musical background — or her own, seeing that Michalka is a pop star in her own right.“When Lainey was going to William Penn, her and Erica would join a talent show, or they would perform at a dance, or whatever it may be,” Michalka said. But now, it’s Lainey’s students who take center stage. “Now, I m kind of the one to sit back in the audience and watch the kids work. Lainey s in a different position now, which I think is really lovely.”N: The Nineties What The Goldbergs was for poufy hair, brightly patterned sweaters, and workout wear, Schooled is for chokers, plaid, and smelling like teen spirit. Prepare to break out your Doc Martens and sing along to Nirvana with some iconic fashion choices.O: Oboe(Photo by Eric McCandless/ABC)Meadows was once a self-described “band geek,” but he didn’t realize it until he played the oboe.“One day, I was in my senior year sitting in my room practicing the oboe,” he said. It was seeing himself play the instrument that did it. “I looked in the mirror, and I saw the biggest nerd in the world and it was me.”He laughed: “I was playing the oboe, and I said, ‘All right, that s it. I m done. I m done.’ … I made up my mind that I was not going to be learning any more instruments in the woodwind family.”P: Prankster Dier’s Charlie Brown is a bit of a goodie-goodie, a rule follower. But in real life, Dier’s high school classmates knew him as a prankster.“I was a goofball in high school. I was the class clown, always in trouble,” he said. “I bought a hundred bouncy balls once and let them all loose in the school.”And that’s on top of (accidentally) almost setting a classroom on fire.Q: Quentin TarantinoWhat does Callen think of when he thinks of the 90s? Pulp Fiction, True Romance, and Reservoir Dogs. In a word, Tarantino. Said the actor, “He just came out on the scene… and we were like, what!?”R: Rivalry It’s not just Coach Rick and Principal Glasgott who have a rivalry, said Dier. His character, Charlie, has his own rivalry with Lainey — at least at first.“It begins because I feel like she doesn’t really understand how to connect with kids on a deep level,” he said. Charlie is “thrown off by how weird she was.”But Lainey is independent and eager to prove herself, and Dier is excited to see where that relationship leads them.S: The Shawshank Redemption and Star WarsThe first is the 1994 film in which actor Clancy Brown played Captain Hadley. The second is the now-40-years-old film franchise that Dier s C.B. loves in the series.In addition to teaching English and running a so-called “Wizards Club,” Charlie Brown also runs a Star Wars-related club — which may or may not result in a lightsaber battle, he hinted.T: Teachers who really careUnlike other high school-set series, Schooled focuses on the lives of teachers rather than students or their families. But Callen said there’s something else that makes Schooled stand out from other series like it.“It’s not cynical,” Callen said. “This is actually a show where we re trying to make a difference, where the teachers really care, and within that there s a lot of comedy.”U: UnexpectedWhen Lainey first arrives at William Penn, she’s not seeking to launch a teaching career or plant long-term roots.“She wants to do music but this is temporary,” Michalka said. “She wants to be a professional musician.”But as time goes on, she discovers something unexpected. She forms bonds with her students and reconnects with her former mentors. Said Michalka, “She realizes, this is really my calling and this is where I m supposed to end up — and I love this job.”V: Valuable lessonsOne of the things that makes The Goldbergs stand out are its end-of-show bits of wisdom. Each episode ends with an explicit “moral” — they’re authentic without being preachy, nostalgic without being too cheesy.Callen said that there are similarly valuable lessons to be learned from Schooled. His character is known for being tough-as-nails, traditional, and super-duper “manly” (all while wearing super-tight shorts). He said that there are certainly lessons to be learned from P.E. class: “Sports teach you how tough you are but they teach you how tough you re not,” and the persistence of practice can also really up someone’s confidence.”But there’s something else to be learned from Coach Rick’s masculinity, particularly in contrast to Principal Glasgott’s softness. Callen said his first acting teacher modeled it for him, too: “[He] said that I had one idea of masculinity, because it was imposed on me, and told me that I was allowed to be emotional — and embarrassed, and scared — and those things were manly too.” That was “profound” for him, he said, “because there s a lot of pressure in our culture for a man to be a man.”Callen really valued having a mentor who taught him he could break such molds and be himself, and Coach Rick and Principal Glasgott both fill that role for the students of William Penn.W: William Penn AcademyIf you went to school in the 90s or early 00s, there’s no need to watch Goldbergs reruns to imagine what William Penn will look like. Think back to those blue chairs, faux-wood tables, classic vending machines, and barely working water fountains. Picture red dodgeballs, hand-painted posters, crowded cafeterias, and decades-old band equipment.And of course, Coach Rick’s thigh-exposing shorts are short as ever. Callen admits that even as 90s fashion introduced knee-length shorts, Coach doesn’t budge on his speedo-looking style.Y: “You re going to make mistakes. Principal Glasgott is famous for being a well-intentioned know-it-all. In The Goldbergs’ flashback episode, he fights with his sister when he acts like he knows best when it comes to raising her kids. He also fights with Coach about which of their teaching styles is most effective. But when his former student Lainey arrives and shakes things up, even wise guys like Coach and Glasgott have something to learn.What exactly are those lessons? She reminds him that his job is important and that you re going to make mistakes,” Meadows said. “She s sort of an example of his success as a teacher, even though her life outside of teaching wasn t great.”Z: Zeitgesit — Tunes, trends, Tamagotchis and… Pokémon?As if the fashion and music of the 90s wasn’t enough, the cast of Schooled revealed there will be surprise cameos and lots of nostalgic Easter eggs for fans to gush over. Dier had a Pokémon card collection as a kid in the 90s, and hinted that they — along with other 90s collectibles, including Tamagotchis — will appear throughout the series.Schooled airs Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m. on ABC.
2021年7月20日，《英雄联盟手游》终于开始了国服测试，由于那天运气着实不错，一抽即中。有了体验资格，那就试试呗。历经这三天的游玩后，笔者在感受到原汁原味的端游移植体验时马服特有的那味也一并承受了。总的来说，本次国服体验不算太差，下面笔者将从游戏界面、游戏画面、游戏音效、战斗系统几个方面依次现身说法~ Jacqueline Coley for Rotten Tomatoes: Tell us about #blackAF. Is this black-ish unleashed?Kenya Barris: Yes, and no. It s a family show about my family, so in that, it is like black-ish, but those were archetypes. This is more accurate — well, except for the mother of my children; she s very different from what Rashida is doing. Rashida is a little bit more of a revolutionist. I ve been doing family shows for a long time, but felt like they needed a reboot. With Netflix, it feels like we re in this new era, in this new dawn, and what better place to try to reboot black-ish into a more authentic family. I made them functionally dysfunctional. And the notion behind it was to take out of my point of view, give the point of view of my daughter, and try and do it in a much more honest way.At ABC, I love those guys, but they were terrified of talking about having any kind of success. They thought it could be ostracizing. I always felt the opposite. I felt like, in the time of Jay-Z and Beyoncé, Barack and Michelle [Obama], or Swizz Beatz and Alicia [Keys], the idea of wish fulfillment and aspirational things really resonates. At the core of it, it s a human story; that was what I m tapping into, or that was what we hoped. But it s also so much scarier, because this was me and much closer to my real family — a rejection of this is a rejection of me in a much bigger way.(Photo by Netflix)You ve mostly worked in linear television. How was the switch to streaming?Barris: It was terrifying. It honestly was. No ad breaks? Just streaming? I m a fan of telling stories where in Act 1, you set the problem up, really explore it in the second, and resolve it in the third. And this was a completely different way of telling those stories. I really enjoyed it, to be honest with you. I enjoyed not having to focus on act breaks and commercials.But at the same time, one of the things that I missed was, Netflix is an unbelievably free, creative environment. As much s t as I used to talk about getting notes, there s something to having a partner give you notes, even if you disagree with them. The freedom to make what you want is a place you want to be as creative person. But if it bombs, you can t blame anybody else. [Laughs] I was like, Be careful what you wish for. But, it was a really, really good experience. I don t know what s going to happen with the show, but we re proud of what we did. They let me do something that I ve never done before. I m so proud of the actors and the family that we put together and the kids and Rashida. But it was terrifying.As your first show on a new deal with Netflix, this is a big swing as far as subject matter and tone. Was that a choice? Barris: I wanted to be noisy. [Netflix] is doing 400 series this year. Not 400 episodes of television, 400 series. To stand out in that crowd was really important to me. I would like to say I don t care what people think, but I care about the critics. In network television, you have your morning-after scorecard. You have ratings that was like basically getting your grade on your test.Netflix doesn t really have that. All you really have is critics, and they ll tell you if you make it or not. So for that, I knew I wanted to be loud. I wanted to try to be noisy and let it be authentic and personal. And know your lane — this is as close to my lane as I possibly can get. I let myself hang out there, but it makes it a lot scarier.(Photo by Netflix)Let s talk about episode 5. It talks about criticism and Rotten Tomatoes in general, but the first thing we have to know is, are you surprised by anything else besides Space Jam, which is discussed in the episode, being rated Rotten on the Tomatometer?Barris: [Laughs] Not to be controversial, but — f k it — I m just gonna say it: I m a huge Boots Riley fan. I think Sorry To Bother You got a 90-something percent. I m like, Really? I m with you until horse people. [Laughs] But my daughter argues with me about it, because she was like, That s the beauty of it. We don t get to do that often in our business We [Black creatives] are not allowed to be open and fluid, have weird endings, and get those kinds of ratings. But still, I check the score.At RT, we argue about scores all the time if that makes you feel any better. Will you be checking the score for #blackAF when it drops? Do you still care?Barris: Absolutely. I care. Tyler thinks I m crazy for caring, but I care. I care what white people are saying. I care what gay people think. I care what Black people think. I care what Rotten Tomatoes thinks. I care. Steven Spielberg put this article out, and he said if you believe any of it, you have to believe all of it, so he doesn t read reviews. Good for him. I m neurotic. I want to be liked, probably too much, but I definitely care. I think we need commercial success. There s room for If Beale Street Could Talk and Moonlight, but there was also something special about Cosby. We have learned the whole story about the man now, but at the time it was special that he became what he did. The Cosby Show changed the trajectory of what we were in this world. That was the first time I ever saw my white friends want the same father that I had.It s one of the things that I was really always happy about with black-ish is that when we first came on, we beat or came close to beating Modern Family. And, that was a huge statement to the powers that be. A lot of things that came after were because of black-ish in some aspect. Not to toot my own horn, but they were kind of derivative of what we did. Other creators said, Oh, why can t I talk about my family? I could talk about my family, and I can be more specific. People started seeing themselves reflected in things and that became the mainstream.(Photo by Emily V. Aragones/Netflix)You brought in Tyler Perry for this episode to talk about the Rotten Tomatoes, and he doesn t share your opinion.Barris: I love that Tyler was like, Oh, I don t f k with them Tomatoes. I have people in my family, they enjoy his films, particularly my mom, my aunt, and some of my relatives. They get so much enjoyment from his movies — honest enjoyment, not just ironic or so-bad-it s-good, just honest enjoyment. He opens up at box offices and does business, too. So why are those people s opinion not as important as someone else s opinion. Their opinion counts, too. Tyler puts a movie out that people enjoy. And because people or certain critics might not feel like it s the most elevated form of comedy, he s destroyed Black culture. There are people who really enjoy him, just as there are people who love Adam Sandler.Tyler Perry opens up doors for Shonda [Rhimes] and me, for Barry Jenkins, and so many others. The only color Hollywood really cares about is green. And, he has the greenest story in Hollywood. He deserves to do his movies and be celebrated just as much as Adam Sandler. He knows his audience. He entertains them, and he s opened so many doors for people of color. Why take away his success? Why marginalize his success because it s not for you. That s where Rotten Tomatoes and those other aggregators have a hard time accurately evaluating our work. It s hard because I feel like many white male reviewers are afraid. They feel like if a female-driven movie or an LGBTQ movie or a Black movie comes out, they can t rip on it. They think, I m not going to be the guy who says something bad about this. Then at the same time, because Tyler Perry s the whipping boy, he s the one guy that they re comfortable taking a swipe at, and I have a problem with that.(Photo by Netflix)In that same episode, you had a Zoom call with a fictional Ava DuVernay, Tim Story, Lena Waithe, Will Packer, and Issa Rae — a.k.a. some of the biggest names in Black Hollywood. How did that come about? Did they have input in their characters ?Barris: I wrote it, and I gave them a little bit of a pitch when I sent it. My pitch was Michael Bay and Jerry Bruckheimer could be on a show together. And, Jerry could joke, Sorry I didn t blow something up, Michael. No one would think any less of Michael Bay or Jerry Bruckheimer for that. They d say, They re bosses and that s how they talk in real life. They can be self-deprecating with their work and never think less about each other. Why can t we do that? Here s the exact group of people responsible for a lot of entertainment on television right now. Especially, in a cultural sense. Why do all our calls have to be something that s like, Between you and me Why can t people see us actually have the conversations that we have and know that we re critiquing our work, too, just the same way everyone else is critiquing our work.How honest do you think creatives are with each other, publicly or privately, if you could give them a grade?Barris: I think it s probably a B. The one thing that I really appreciate about us is that we show up for each other. Black Panther is a great example of us showing up for each other. Black Panther was an amazing movie. Ryan Coogler is going to go down as one of the best filmmakers in the history of cinema. But, one of the things that helped that movie is that we showed up for him. In addition to everyone else showing up, because it was a great movie, we showed up for him. And it was the same thing with Girls Trip. That first weekend, in droves, and our people showed up with their girlfriends. And then boom, next thing we see is white girlfriends showing up doing the same thing. When things cross over and become mainstream, and it allows everyone else to be a part of it. It doesn t feel so niche.That s something that we do, and it s important that we continue to do it. As far as celebrating sort of publicly, actually, I think we get an A. I think that privately the conversations are always a little bit scarier. You can have them with your close peers, and sometimes it s a little bit harder to sit through, because you don t want to have say something that makes someone feel like you re not being supportive. But we re getting better. The calls, that episode, the willingness of people who have active careers to do things like this shows that we re getting better. I m a huge Jordan [Peele], but after Jordan did Us, I was seeing articles saying like, He s Hitchcock. And I was like, I think even Jordan would be like, That s a little bit quick. There s a positiveness to us being embraced like that, but we have to put in the work. We have to be respected in terms of the general notion of what it takes to really put those 10,000 hours in.I just watched Unorthodox on Netflix, and I m like, Why can t we [Black people] have this? Black people get, like, four stories to tell. White people have like a million options. With [Unorthodox], that story was such a niche story, but it was told so well, someone bought it and people support it. I m like, Why can t we tell more of those stories? Why can t we get stories that feel outside of what people are used to hearing from us?, because that s how we actually grow culturally and within the industry.Since you do read reviews, do you have a favorite critic? Barris: Emily Nussbaum did a great New Yorker article on me, and she kind of changed my career. She embedded with us for a few days and she really got it. She s also like a TV fanatic. I am always interested in what people like her have to say. I get it. Some people don t like what I do, and I am OK with that, but I am also not going to pretend it doesn t bother me. I get it: I m not for them. But that s that needy part of me, because I want so badly for them to like my stuff.Many creatives feel that way. Quentin Tarantino was awarded Best Original Screenplay last year by New York Film Critics Circle, and he spent half his acceptance speech talking about one of the members who has hated every movie he s made, but Tarantino loves his writing. And this is a man with multiple Oscars and nothing to prove. Barris: And, that s part of why Tarantino s a good writer. How do you say that you don t care? How could you not care? It s you. You ve put years of your time, energy, and life-blood into this thing, to say you don t care? It s like you re either a sociopath or a liar.#blackAF premieres April 17 on Netflix.
