FROSTY THE SNOWMAN (Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures)The studio system of the Golden Age of Hollywood has obviously been dead and gone for decades, but that doesn t mean certain actors don t establish relationships with specific studios. One of the studios best known for that is Warner Bros., which is frequently the home for movies starring Ben Affleck, Bradley Cooper, Tom Cruise, Clint Eastwood, Michael B. Jordan, and of course, the various stars of their DC Comics superhero movies. That last group is important this week, because the star who gave Warner Bros. a massive box office success with Aquaman (Fresh at 65%) was Jason Momoa, who also co-starred in WB-sister-company HBO s Game of Thrones. Momoa kept his relationship with Warner Bros. very, very cool this week by signing on to voice the classic Christmas character Frosty the Snowman in a new live-action/CGI hybrid movie (Frosty himself will be CGI with Momoa s voice, of course). Momoa will also produce Frosty the Snowman along with DC Comics Geoff Johns. He ll next be seen in the reboot of Frank Herbert s Dune, which, likewise, will also be distributed by Warner Bros.Other Top Headlines1. THE ACADEMY S NEW CLASS OF VOTERS INCLUDES AWKAFINA, FLORENCE PUGH, AND ZENDAYA (Photo by Getty Images)The Academy Awards are still recovering from the stigma reflected in the various #OscarsSoWhite hashtags of recent years, and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences is likewise continuing to implement changes designed to encourage diversity in the prestige films nominated and awarded each year. There were two different changes this week that both related to who precisely gets to vote each year on the nominees and winners. On Monday, the Board of Governors announced that they had reclassified the membership status of Artist s Representatives (A.K.A. talent agents) from associates to members-at-large, which means that for the first time ever, 111 current agents will now have voting rights for the Oscars. The Academy has over 7,000 voting members, so those 111 votes are still a tiny minority, but the change is still significant and opens the door to other future changes, such as for critics or journalists. Then, on Tuesday, the Academy announced the names of the 819 artists who have been invited to join the Academy with full voting privileges. The list is made up of 45% women, 36% from minority backgrounds, and 49% are international artists from outside the United States. The newest Academy voters will include five of the stars of Parasite, Cynthia Erivo, Zazi Beetz, Constance Wu, Awkwafina, Florence Pugh, and Lakeith Stanfield, among many others.2. TAIKA WAITITI PRODUCING THREE PROJECTS FROM NEW ZEALAND MAORI WRITERS (Photo by Jasin Boland/©Marvel)Some directors are able to find a successful balance between big budget studio projects for them and then their own personal films for me. One such filmmaker is Taika Waititi, who directed Thor: Ragnarok (Certified Fresh at 93%) for Marvel Studios before moving on to his own pet project, Jojo Rabbit ( Certified Fresh at 80%). Waititi has lots of his own projects lined up (including the soccer movie Next Goal Wins, Thor: Love and Thunder, and a Star Wars movie), but this week, he also took on the role of producer in support of New Zealand. Waititi is producing three different projects from New Zealand writers of Maori heritage, with all three films looking at the effects of European colonization on the indigenous people of the country. The three projects will be The Imaginary Lives of James Poneke (about a Maori teenager who travels to 1840s London as part of a Maori museum exhibit), Down the Rabbit Hole (about a Maori woman who ends up in a British prison), and Better than Blood (about an obsessive Maori detective as she hunts down an indigenous serial killer revenging the wrongs of New Zealand’s colonizers ).3. PEDRO ALMODOVAR AND PENELOPE CRUZ REUNITING FOR SEVENTH FILM (Photo by Kristin Callahan/Everett Collection)Although South Korea s Parasite eventually won the Academy Award over it this year, Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar s Pain and Glory (Certified Fresh at 96%) was still one of 2019 s most lauded films. For Pain and Glory, Almodóvar reunited with two of his most frequent (and most famous) co-stars: Antonio Banderas for the eighth time, and Penelope Cruz for the sixth time. We also now know that Almodóvar has once again cast Penelope Cruz for his next film, to be titled Madres Paralela (Parallel Mothers), which will reportedly tell the stories of two mothers (one of them being Cruz, who s now 46) in Madrid who give birth to their babies on the same day, over the first two years of their new children s lives. It s not yet known if there is also a role in Madres Paralela for Anontio Banderas, or who might play the other mother. Madres Paralelas will start filming in Madrid in February, 2021, and it s expected to be released in Spain by the end of that year (which suggests a release in the United States sometime in 2022).4. SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE 2 PRODUCER PROMISES IT WILL MAKE THE FIRST FILM LOOK QUAINT (Photo by ©Columbia Pictures)The animation style used for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (Certified Fresh at 97%) was so innovative that the film was able to win the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature that year against two Disney films (Pixar s Incredibles 2 and Ralph Breaks the Internet). As amazing as it was, producer Chris Miller this week took to Twitter to tease that The development of new groundbreaking art techniques being done for the next Spider-Verse movie are already blowing me away. It’s going to make the first movie look quaint. Of course, that statement doesn t go on to explain in what ways the sequel will be innovative (they certainly don t want to tip off their competition). The sequel to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (which hasn t officially been titled yet) is currently scheduled for release over two years from now on October 7, 2022 (but that date could certainly be shifted as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to push release dates back).5. KATE WINSLET TO PORTRAY MODEL-TURNED-WAR CORRESPONDENT LEE MILLER (Photo by ©Warner Bros.)Back in 2015, Steven Spielberg made the news for developing a project called It s What I Do, which would have starred Jennifer Lawrence as war photographer Lynsey Addario (that project appears to have stalled in the years since). This week, another biopic about a female war photographer is getting going, except that the setting for this one will be World War II. Kate Winslet is now attached to star in Lee, a biopic about Vogue model-turned-war-correspondent Lee Miller, who was on the scene for events like the London Blitz, the liberation of Paris from the Nazis, and the discoveries of the concentration camps at Buchenwald and Dachau. Lee will be the feature film directorial debut of cinematographer Ellen Kuras, whose work includes Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (starring Winslet) and episodes of shows like Catch-22, Ozark, and The Umbrella Academy.6. WILL SMITH S EMANCIPATION LANDS AT APPLE FOR 0 MILLION (Photo by Scott Garfield/©Netflix)Last year, Netflix ended up spending something north of 0 million on Martin Scorsese s mob biopic The Irishman (Certified Fresh at 96%), and this week brought news of another expensive project being picked up by one of Netflix s streaming competitors. The movie in question is the recently announced slavery-era epic Emancipation, in which Will Smith will star as the runaway slave Peter whose scarred back was photographed in 1863 to inspire the Northern public during the Civil War. Emancipation went up for sale at the Virtual Cannes market last week, leading to a sale to Apple for 0 million, which set an all-time record for the largest festival acquisition deal ever. Emancipation will be directed by Antoine Fuqua (Olympus Has Fallen, The Equalizer) and produced by Will Smith s Westbrook Studios production company. Apple is expected to premiere Emancipation in theaters before it debuts on Apple TV+.7. SHAZAM! SUPERHERO ZACHARY LEVI TO STAR IN KURT WARNER FOOTBALL BIOPIC (Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures)One of the last movies to actually be released in theaters before the COVID-19 pandemic shut everything down for months (and delayed pretty much everything) was the faith-based romantic drama I Still Believe (Rotten at 51%), starring KJ Apa and Britt Robertson. This week, two different movies with direct connections to I Still Believe made the news. That film was directed by the sibling team of Andrew and Jon Erwin, and their next movie is going to be a football biopic called American Underdog: The Kurt Warner Story. The Erwin brothers were able to cast the star of one of 2019 s biggest superhero movies, as the title role of Kurt Warner will be played by Zachary Levi, who played the superhero alter ego in Shazam! (Certified Fresh at 90%). Levi will star as NFL Hall of Fame quarterback Kurt Warner, who went from stocking shelves at a supermarket to becoming a Super Bowl MVP. Also making the news this week is a project called Jesus Revolution, which is also based on a true story, this time about a group of California teenage hippies in the early 1970s who form their own religious movement called the Harvest Christian Fellowship. Jesus Revolution is being produced by the same people behind I Still Believe, and the cast will include Jim Gaffigan and Joel Courtney.8. SETH ROGEN BRINGING BACK ANIMATED TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES (Photo by ©Warner Bros.)It s clear that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles remains a popular franchise for many fans, whether their love of the characters started with the 1980s-1990s animated TV show, the 1990s live-action movies, or the gritty 1980s black-and-white comics that started it all. After those original three live live-action films in the 1990s, the first attempt at rebooting the franchise came in 2007 with the computer animated TMNT, which was then followed in 2014 by a live-action reboot that received a sequel in 2016 called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (Rotten at 37%). Now we can confirm that another attempt at reviving Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, specifically as a CGI-animated feature film, is in development, with Seth Rogen s Point Grey Pictures teaming up with Nickelodeon and Paramount Pictures on the project. This seventh Ninja Turtles movie will be directed by Jeff Rowe (a writer on Disney s Gravity Falls who is making his directorial debut with Connected) working from a screenplay by Brendan O Brien (co-writer of Neighbors, Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising). It s not yet known if Rogen himself plans on taking a role in the movie (Casey Jones, perhaps?).9. GERARD BUTLER CONFIRMS SEQUELS TO DEN OF THIEVES AND FALLEN FRANCHISE(Photo by Susie Allnutt/©Focus Features)If movie theaters do indeed open back up across the country by August, one of the first movies scheduled to be one of the first in wide release is Greenland, a Deep Impact-style disaster movie starring Gerard Butler. Although Greenland is an original story, Butler confirmed this week that that two of his upcoming projects will be sequels. One of them will be Den of Thieves 2: Pantera, a sequel to the 2018 heist action thriller Den of Thieves (Rotten at 42%) that earned million worldwide. Butler describes the Den of Thieves sequel (about his character chasing O Shea Jackson Jr. s character around the world) as a fun ride, spreading across North America into Europe and the diamond district of Marseilles. Butler also promised that a fourth movie in the franchise that started in 2013 with Olympus Has Fallen (Rotten at 49%) is also in the works, although he didn t mention a title or a location that will presumably have fallen. The second movie in 2016 was London Has Fallen (Rotten at 27%) and the third last year was Angel Has Fallen (Rotten at 39% ).

Bad Boys, bad movies, right? Not so fast. While the 1995 original and its 2003 sequel, both Mi亚博在线官网(Photo by Brian Tallerico, Monica Castillo, David Fear, Eric Kohn, Jean Bentley, Joi Childs)Freelance critics who rely on new releases and festivals for bylines have been hit particularly hard by COVID-19–induced budget cuts, movie theater closures, festival cancellations, and movie delays. With fewer new releases to cover, publications are pivoting to binge guides, reviewing VOD releases, and focusing on already-released movies and TV series.(You can read our feature about how COVID-19 is affecting the industry and the writers and editors covering it here.)Rotten Tomatoes spoke with editors at IndieWire, Rolling Stone, and Roger Ebert.com – as well as freelancers who’ve published in the New York Times, The Hollywood Reporter, and Los Angeles Times, among others – for their advice on pitching and staying sane amid corona-centric industry changes.In terms of what’s keeping them grounded, critics cited their families, remote workout classes, and video chats with friends as their sources for stability amidst these uncertain times. Another common denominator is movies and TV, of course. They’re revisiting classics, catching up on things they’d previously missed, and looking forward to returning to theaters.Asked what’s keeping him sane, Rolling Stone Senior Editor David Fear answered: “The hope that one day I will be able to sit down and have a cup of coffee in a public place, or walk into a movie theater the way that I’ve done… sit down and be surrounded by people, and watch a movie, with an audience.”Below, critics offer pitching and freelancing advice in the COVID19 era.Brian Tallerico, Editor at RogerEbert.com (@Brian_Tallerico)Pivot to current needs: “I ve always done a little bit of everything, that s my advice for young writers. I ve always done a lot of TV, I ve done video game reporting, I ve done book reviews. My advice would be pivot to the needs – offer pitches on Netflix originals, you know what I mean? … More anniversary pieces and nostalgia pieces pitches. Find something that s coming up with an anniversary or find an angle on Star Wars that hasn t been written about yet, you know what I mean? If you can t do current stuff, find something evergreen. People are always going to read about Star Wars and Marvel.”Look after yourself first: “I hear from a lot of freelancers who are having trouble making rent or got furloughed from a regular gig. And I know how hard that is. I ve tried to tell my freelancers if you need a break, if you need time, the fact of the matter is none of us, no one can produce quality work from a truly stressful headspace.”Make it unique: “General advice to young writers: make it unique. One of the questions I often ask people when they pitch me is, how is this different than something I ve read somewhere else? I don t want to read the same thing that I ve read a thousand times. … It s got to be different than something we ve already published in review form. … Stay true to your voice and make sure your voice is unique. Those are the two things. I want to hear you and I want to hear something I haven t heard before. Don t try to appease any masses or any audience. Tell me something you re interested in writing about, because that s the only way it s going to be interesting – if you re interested in writing about it.”David Fear, Senior Editor and Film Critic at Rolling Stone (@davidlfear)Tailor your pitch to what s going on: “The rules of pitching before this still apply. Try and be patient with editors getting back to you. Check and make sure that then haven t run five similar stories over the last three weeks to what you re pitching… Know your outlet. Try and come in like a lamb and not the lion. Figure out how to tailor your pitch to what s going on, in a way that doesn t feel like it s requiring the Bikram yoga stretch to have it make sense.”Jean Bentley, Freelance TV Writer and Television Critics Association Board Member (@hijean)Give yourself some freedom: “Honestly, the way that I work is essentially what everyone is now forced to do. I usually work from home. I try to keep myself to business hours whenever I can… I don t work on weekends. I don t work super late unless I m on a deadline and really pressed. But I also give myself a lot of freedom – if I m not feeling good or I just can t, sometimes you re trying to write and you just can t – I m like, you know what, I ve got time on this, I m just going to watch some screeners or watch this show that I m not caught up on and I ll come back to it later.”Keep your editors informed – especially if you re struggling: “I found that if you communicate with your editors when you re struggling with a deadline or just life right now, they re very understanding. As long as you just tell them what s going on so they re not just checking their inbox – that s something that I as an editor would be frustrated by. I m not annoyed that this piece is going to be late if it doesn t necessarily have to publish tomorrow, just tell me that it s not going to come in so I m not expecting it and planning to devote that part of my day to it.”Joi Childs, Freelance Writer and Host of The Color Grade Podcast (@jumpedforjoi)Look out for each other: “To be candid, I am a Black female critic. I try to look out for other Black female critics and other Black critics because of the just standard, systemic disadvantages that we have in this space. There are very few us in staff writer jobs. A lot of us are in the freelance pool. I m fortunate enough where I have a full-time day job in brand marketing. I always try to be mindful of the fact that, hey, can I write this for the MTR Network, which is a friend s site that I ve been writing for that can still help me fulfill my quotas, to keep my guild membership or hit my personal goal, without potentially taking food and a check from somebody who s struggling even more?”Eric Kohn, Executive Editor and Chief Critic at IndieWire (@erickohn)Experiment with TV writing: “I always think if you can write about movies, you can write about TV, and if you haven t experimented with writing about TV, now is the time to really get into that.”Lean into your reporting experience: “Anybody who can write about the streaming space in a very complex way is in a really good situation because there is a lot of demand for that. I mean, it s basically impossible to cover new releases. So if you can find original angles on anything that s widely available on a major streaming platform, whether it s an older film or something that s slightly new, I think that s a really important skill to take into account. Being able to report a story, pick up the phone and talk to sources, is really valuable right now, because people are in a real kind of sense of unknown and helping them talk through the situation is a really important asset that journalists can have. Being able to report on the industry right now is incredibly valuable. And if you have an original angle along those lines, I think it s something that a lot of publications are going to be interested in.”Know the publication you re pitching to – and its needs: “It s important to take a look at publications – this is important in any context, not just the current climate – and see how they are already covering movies and TV, and make sure you re not being redundant. Find something that seems like it could be up their alley that they haven t already done it yet. Something that might take a little bit more work than a full-time employee might have the bandwidth to do, but could also resonate for the readers of that publication. Say, an oral history or a deep dive on a certain filmmaker or something like that. That could be really compelling and appealing to readers right now, but also requires enough time that would justify a freelancer s investment.”Monica Castillo, Freelance Critic and Film Writer (@mcastimovies)Give yourself more time: “I m noticing that I m asking for more time. Maybe that s my advice to other freelancers who are really struggling through just keeping their focus on writing or pitching or whatever it might be, is to just give yourself the extra time. I feel like a lot of editors are also looking for that because everyone is just so overwhelmed in one way or another. I ve slowed down my productivity, but it allows me to actually make my deadlines a lot easier.”
Television Christmas specials had an amazing run in the 1960s, with legendary shows like A Charlie Brown Christmas, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and How the Grinch Stole Christmas! all coming out within a few years of each other. And the small screen has been chasing the dragon ever since, with repeated attempts to strike that holiday gold by creating a beloved property that will air year after year after year.Some of the specials listed here were valiant efforts, while others are noble failures, and except for some hardcore fans in various corners of the internet, they’ve been mostly left behind in the snows of TV history. Let’s give a little love to these misfit toys:Christmas Is (1970)The Lutheran Church’s ventures into TV animation went beyond their legendary Davey Goliath series – this special follows the adventures of young Benji and his sheepdog Waldo. Benji gets annoyed about being cast as one of the shepherds in the annual Nativity play, but he has an attitude adjustment after finding himself transported back to Bethlehem and watching the story play out before his eyes. (The follow-up special Easter Is scared the bejesus our of some kids who happened to see it, because of the scary sequence in which Waldo gets lost.)The Night the Animals Talked (1970)This vintage special hasn’t aired on network television in decades, although it did spark some reminiscences in 2017, when the theatrical animated feature The Star pursued a somewhat similar storyline. This half-hour cartoon portrays the legend that the animals in the stable – you know, the one where Mary and Joseph wound up gained the ability to talk to each other on the night of Jesus’ birth. The voice cast includes legendary character actor Paul Dooley (Sixteen Candles), although if you squint at it just right, this show occasionally resembles Animal Farm more than it does the Gospels.Casper s First Christmas (1979)While many of the Harvey Comics characters made the leap to film and TV animation, they rarely crossed over outside of the fold. So, if only for the fact that this special features Casper learning about the holiday from the likes of Yogi Bear and Snagglepuss, it’s got historical significance. Still, the idea of it being Casper’s first Christmas calls to mind the eternal question about the character: Was he born a ghost? Or is he the spirit of a dead child?A Family Circus Christmas (1979)A Charlie Brown Christmas became a holiday perennial because of its own greatness, yes, but it helped that it was based on a beloved comic strip that reigned supreme in American newspapers for 50 years. There isn t quite the same level of affection for Bil Keane’s The Family Circus, which in recent years has become more popular as fodder for online memes than for its hilarious jokes about Billy’s dotted line or the mischievous imps Not Me and Ida Know. Anyway, if you’re a fan, here’s Dolly and Jeffy and all the rest learning the true meaning of Christmas or whatever.Christmas Comes to PacLand (1982)What’s worse than a weekly cartoon that’s a shameless attempt to build characters out of two-dimensional video game figures? A holiday special where those two-dimensional figures help Santa Claus fix his sleigh so they can save Christmas. For all the clunky jokes and terrible animation, however, you have to commend this special for committing to the bit; we may not have ever needed a Pac-Man Christmas special, but this Pac-Man Christmas special always goes out of its way to be the most Pac-Man Christmas special it can be.Ziggy s Gift (1982)Yet another TV adaptation of a newspaper comics character, and even though one of Elliott Kalan’s running gags on the Flop House podcast is his series of pitches for a Ziggy movie, this TV special featuring the hairless, luckless Everyman actually has a devoted cult following. (It no doubt helps that it was directed by the great Richard Williams, the animator behind Who Framed Roger Rabbit? and The Thief and the Cobbler.) Ziggy gets a job as a street-corner Santa, and of course, his kindness makes holiday magic happen.Rapsittie Street Kids: Believe in Santa (2002)This 2002 special from the WB Network might well have remained completely forgotten by the public at large, had Rotten Tomatoes’ own Nathan Rabin not disinterred it for his Happy Place blog. Hideously animated, grossly padded to fill out an hour’s worth of TV time, and generally devoid of any holiday joy or magic, this is one Christmas special you have to see to believe. And even though it’s never been released on DVD (imagine that), the whole thing lives on YouTube. P.S. The voice cast includes Mark Hamill, who can now claim that he was in a holiday special even worse than the Star Wars one.

Everyone likes a good horror franchise with an iconic villain who preys upon a new group of innocents in every installment. The problem, though, is that they start to run out of steam after a handful of installments. No matter how good Halloween, A Nightmare on Elm Street, or Friday the 13th are, eventually we get something like The Revenge of Michael Myers, The Dream Child, or Jason Goes to Hell. But there’s one franchise that, in the wake of Scream, utilized humor to help revitalize the slasher genre at the outset of the new millennium and made audiences afraid of literally everything, and it all began with 2000 s Final Destination.Even if the franchise isn t the most critically acclaimed, its very concept seems clearly built to be a lasting enterprise. Final Destination boasts a villain you can never beat and a series of kill scenes that only get more inventive with each installment. For its 20th anniversary, we’re getting off the plane to tell everyone how Final Destination kicked off the best horror franchise of the 2000s.IT WEAPONIZES ANXIETY AND MAKES THE MUNDANE DEADLYFrom its opening title sequence, the original Final Destination plays on the idea of anxiety and paranoia in everyday life. We meet Alex (Devon Sawa) as he’s preparing for a class trip to France, revising his schedule for the flight, when he suddenly freaks out at the idea of his mother removing the luggage tag from his last flight because it would bring him bad luck. From then on, both Alex and the audience see ominous signs everywhere, from a faulty alarm clock to the sudden cancellation of a bunch of flights to the sign with the gate number breaking. These omens culminate in a premonition of the plane exploding shortly after take-off and killing everyone on board. Those kinds of accidents are exceedingly rare, of course, but it’s easy to sympathize with the idea that when you’re anxious about something like flying, everything feels ominous.Even before Final Destination gets to its convoluted, Rube Goldberg-like death traps, the films weaponizes very real fears, and that’s what makes the horror of the film follow you home and haunt you for days. Unlike a supernatural horror movie that depends on its victims being trapped in a haunted house or a slasher where the villain is a masked killer, the horror of Final Destination only feels like pure fiction until you’re driving home behind that truck carrying flammable gases, or you re walking down the street and nearly trip over an uneven bit of pavement, or you realize your bathroom floor is extra slippery right as you enter the shower. From the big, opening premonition sequences that set each of the movies in motion to the bizarre and very bloody “accidental” deaths that follow, the Final Destination franchise takes advantage of your actual fears and turns them into your worst nightmares.Suddenly you realize that not living anywhere near Camp Crystal Lake won’t save you, and that not moving into a haunted house won’t prevent you from dying a horrible death, because the villain here can’t be defeated, and it’s coming for us all.THERE IS NO VILLAIN, AND NO ESCAPEBirth.Movies.Death’s Brian Collins said it best when we wrote that one of the most surprising things about Final Destination was the way the film became such a successful franchise despite its lack of a villain you could commercialize. The iconic hockey mask from Friday the 13th and the glove adorned with knives from A Nightmare on Elm Street are massively marketable props that helped their respective franchises stay alive.But when it comes to Final Destination, there are no action figures or costumes for the film’s villain, because there is no villain in the traditional sense. The antagonist is the concept of Death itself, and we re not talking about the Grim Reaper with his hood and sickle, but an unseen force that subtly (or not-so-subtly) gives objects a tiny little push in increasingly convoluted ways to ultimately lead to someone’s demise. Sure, the series tapped Candyman star Tony Todd to play the mysterious mortician Bludworth and lend the films some horror cred, but he s more of a cheeky messenger than a harbinger of evil.And yet, as fun as it is, this franchise is as existential and grim as it gets. In most horror movies, there are rules you can follow to survive, as Scream taught us in 1996. Slasher movies in particular act as sort of morality tales, with characters who behave badly facing divine justice in the form of a bloody demise. Final Destination is so terrifying because there is literally no escape. Even when the characters think they ve found a loophole and manage to outlive death’s design, something else happens, and they all meet their gruesome ends. There is no hope for survival because, while you can outrun a man with a knife, solve Jigsaw’s puzzles, or exorcise a demon, you can’t outrun Death forever.THE SCARES ARE BALANCED WITH HUMOR(Photo by New Line courtesy Everett Collection)Final Destination knows that scares and laughs go hand in hand, and no matter how grim the tone of the film is, it is always accompanied by a wicked gallows humor that provides a nice release of tension. The films are brightly colored, they are fast-paced, and even many of the kills are so ridiculously elaborate that they make you laugh.Much like Freddy Krueger in the latter Nightmare films, Death in Final Destination has a dark and sadistic sense of humor. It’s not enough to simply die – though the beauty of the first film is that the deaths are so simple you could easily see yourself falling for those tricks – but Death wants to make fun of you with a brutal, gory, and preposterously untimely demise, like a barbed-wired fence that whips loose and cuts you to pieces. Tanning beds, gym weights, elevators, laser eye surgery, trains anything can be used to kill a character. This gave the Final Destination franchise endless possibilities to do whatever it wanted when it came to death scenes; on the other hand, there are only so many ways Jason Voorhees can dispatch a teenager with a machete.Indeed, after the original movie, the sequels found delight in tricking the audience as they guessed how the characters would die. The film would introduce an obvious Chekhov s gun, usually in the form of the protagonist having a vision, as in Final Destination 2 when Kimberly (A.J. Cook) notices a bunch of pigeons. Then the film shows the soon-to-be victim surrounded by said clue, as when Tim (James Kirk) sits in a dentist’s office full of dangerous equipment and watches the same pigeons fly in through the window – only for him to leave the dentist unscathed and fall victim to a giant glass pane that drops on him from above, crushing him. The film builds tension in making us think Tim will die at the dentist’s office, and when he actually meets his end, the over-the-top look of his crushed, unnaturally twisted body quickly turns the shock into a punchline.THE SEQUELS ADD TO THE MYTHOLOGY(Photo by New Line courtesy Everett Collection)Each of the four sequels follows the same formula: a group of people managed to elude their own deaths, only to find themselves targeted by Death in the weeks to follow, hunted one by one in the order they would have originally died. However, each movie adds a bit of a twist to the way the survivors try to outrun their fates, building its mythology along the way.In the first film, we discover that if you save someone’s life, Death skips them and goes after the next in line. Final Destination 2 brings back Clear Rivers (Ali Larter) from the first one to continue her arc and introduces the idea that new life cancels out death, while the third movie adds a magic camera that offers clues to how each character will die. Final Destination 5 makes the threat more human, as the characters believe killing another person will balance Death s book. Even The Final Destination, which is considered the worst of the franchise, adds a fascinating new question: what if someone who isn’t the next in line tries to kill themselves? The answer, apparently, is that they won’t be able to.Final Destination managed to stay fresh because it didn’t contradict its mythology, but added to it, providing new twists that made the series feel new each time. Few franchises, horror or otherwise, can boast that kind of inventiveness.IT IS THE BEGINNING AND THE END OF THE FRANCHISE(Photo by Doane Gregory/Warner Bros. courtesy Everett Collection)A potential future installment could change things, of course, but for the time being, Final Destination has the rare honor of being one of the handful of horror franchises to have not just an ending, but a satisfying one that brings everything full-circle and ties it all together.In Final Destination 5, after the ominous Bludworth introduces the idea of balancing the books by killing an innocent person to inherit that person’s lifespan, we get what appears to be the very first happy ending in the franchise, as Sam (Nicholas D’Agosto) presumably saves Molly (Emma Bell) and himself by killing one of the other survivors. The film sees them move on with their lives by taking a trip to Paris. As they board the plane, they notice some commotion across the aisle involving none other than Devon Sawa s Alex from the first film. Right then, the plane takes off and we revisit the very same explosion that kickstarted the original Final Destination, as audiences realize they ve been watching a prequel all along.It’s a clever way to bring the franchise back to where it started and wrap it all up with a nice little bow, and even if we never get another Final Destination, we’ll always have this ending, which once again shows that you can never really escape Death’s deliciously macabre design.Where You Can Watch It NowNetflix (subscription): Final Destination, Final Destination 2, Final Destination 3, The Final DestinationAmazon (rent/own): Final Destination, Final Destination 2, Final Destination 3, The Final Destination, Final Destination 5FandangoNOW (rent/own): Final Destination, Final Destination 2, Final Destination 3, The Final Destination, Final Destination 5Google (rent/own): Final Destination, Final Destination 2, Final Destination 3, The Final Destination, Final Destination 5iTunes (rent/own): Final Destination, Final Destination 2, Final Destination 3, The Final Destination, Final Destination 5Vudu (rent/own): Final Destination, Final Destination 2, Final Destination 3, The Final Destination, Final Destination 5Final Destination was released on March 17, 2000.
Best-Reviewed Superhero TV Shows 20192019 was the year when superhero TV got super innovative, a trend reflected by the five series – four of which were in their debut seasons – that rose to the top of the heap in this category. Legion, one of the most daring superhero series of the decade, ended its three-season run in typically mindf ing fashion; The Boys won critics over with twists, swears, and a meta take on the genre; Doom Patrol gave us equal parts weirdness and heart (and DC Universe a hit); and the Michael B. Jordan-produced Raising Dion offered a new kind of hero in a story told with remarkable ambition. And then there was Damaon Lindelof’s Watchmen, which nuked the competition (squidded?) with a thrilling and relevant extension of Alan Moore’s story and some of the most jaw-dropping episodes of TV this year.The order of the rank below reflects the Adjusted Score as of December 31, 2019.

Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol is one of the most-adapted tales in the history of the English language, and Steven Knight, creator of gritty period series Peaky Blinders and Taboo, is the latest talent to have taken on the task.We all know the story: crotchety miser Ebenezer Scrooge has a Christmas Eve night visitation from his dead former partner Jacob Marley, who warns him of three ghosts who will attend him as he walks through visions of Christmases past, present, and future.This new FX presentation, directed by Nick Murphy (The Awakening), stars Guy Pearce as Scrooge and Andy Serkis as a grumpy Ghost of Christmas Past and promises a darker take on the 1843 novella that made a superstar of its author: A Christmas Carol is a spine-tingling immersion into Scrooge s dark night of the soul, the promotional materials promise. It is a darker retelling. There s no question, Serkis told Rotten Tomatoes. It s a unique retelling in that respect because Scrooge in this is not some sort of old miser character. He s actually a tough businessmen who is in denial and doesn t want to really engage with his own moral relativism. We caught up with the stars to get a feel for the new adaptation — and it indeed feels scary. Here are five ways this Christmas Carol one-ups previous efforts.1. This Cool Scrooge Resonates With Modern Audiences(Photo by Kurt Iswarienko/FX)Scrooge is not as crotchety here as in previous interpretations of the character; in fact, the character may resemble more real-life people than ever before. Pearce offered a personal assessment of his character. They really wanted somebody this time who still had been affected in life the way that we know Scrooge has been, but that his demeanor and his presence in the world was more of a businessman, as a leader who is a kind of a cocky, confident, swaggering kind of asshole, basically, Pearce told Rotten Tomatoes. I think it was important for Nick, our director, and for Steven, our writer, to get away from the crotchety old man who exhibits on the surface the pain and damage that he s experienced in his life. And the fact that he s turned away from the world and plays somebody who s actually up front to the world and says, Come on, bring it on. Bring on your questions about who I am and what it is, because I ve got a really good response for you. And kind of like that, be a little bit more affronting and aggressive. And so, in a way, we still get to the point where we drag him through his past, and we make him look at the things he s done to people, and we crack open the soul that is a damaged soul. 2. This Ghost of Christmas Past Plays Dirty(Photo by Robert Viglasky/FX)But his Scrooge will face a harder fight in Knight s version, Pearce confirmed: It s a tougher journey because the Ghost of Christmas Past is a really hard nut to crack. The Ghost of Christmas Past is jaded, the character description offers. He’s been sent to make lost souls repent before, why should Scrooge be any different? He prods and pokes where it hurts, transforming himself into those known to his charge, finding a place of pain, shame and self-knowledge. But can he get Scrooge to recognize himself, and repent? 3. The Ghost of Christmas Present Has a Much More Personal Relationship With Scrooge(Photo by Robert Viglasky/FX)Charlotte Riley appears as the Ghost of Christmas Present, while Jason Flemyng is the Ghost of Christmas Future. Both ghosts are updated here with new twists on the characters. She plays my sister who has died some years before, Pearce said, and she has now come back as the Ghost of Christmas Present. And — particularly after the ruthlessness of Andy Serkis Ghost of Christmas Past, who shape-shifts into all sorts of characters through my past, and he s really tough on me — then she comes in as the Ghost of Christmas Present, and it s my long lost dead sister, so it s so emotional and so touching and painful. And then it s capped off with Jason playing sort of ruthless again, but silent like the silent-killer kind of attitude, as the Ghost of Christmas Future. 4. Steven Knight s Take Is Indeed Chilling(Photo by Robert Viglasky/FX)One of the most unsettling features of the new story is how closely it hews to issues — and personalities — we face today, which is a very intentional choice. Serkis said he knew he was in for something special when he heard Knight was attached. When I heard that there was another version of Christmas Carol being made, I kind of thought, Wow, OK. Again? Another one?' he said. But as soon as I knew that Steven Knight was writing it, I knew that now, This is going to be an interesting take, because I knew this was going to be the beginning of a journey into his exploration of Dickens in other stories as well, which is the case. Knight and the stars had previously talked about stripping down the story, which Serkis expounded on for Rotten Tomatoes. When we say stripping down, it was more about not getting bogged down in the sort of tropes of a costume drama, Victorian drama, and allowing it to live afresh as a really contemporary piece of writing, he said. And therefore, and so, even though you re what you, of course, allowing the visuals, you do that work, you want to feel that the character is alive and very present and not sort of imagining what it might be like to have been alive in the 19th century. You re not doing that. You re actually saying these are people, people are people, and we still have the same issues, problems. We need to unpack the difficulties of the human condition in this, in a very modern way to make this story resonate with a fresh audience. 5. Serkis Costuming Challenge Continues Here Even If He s Not a CG-Enhanced Character(Photo by Robert Viglasky/FX)Serkis, known especially for his CG-enhanced performances like Gollum and Caesar in the Lord of the Rings and Planet of the Apes franchises, faced a different sort of challenge here. [The costume] was so heavy. It was like going from the sublime to the ridiculous. I couldn t possibly have more makeup or costume to bear, but it was great, actually. It was nice to play a character in the flesh, and it was a particularly challenging character, not least because it was like sensory deprivation actually wearing this costume. I had long locks of hair and an additional beard. I had an eye that I couldn t see out of. I had scars all over my face. I had long nails, so once I got into costume, I was able to kind of get into the character and stay there. I had to. To compound his costuming issues, they filmed in summer. It was pretty brutal at times, Serkis said. I just had to at least take the hat off and get the top layer off as much as I could. But — actor problems.
