other forms of entertainment based on the characters. This week, we get the latest iteration on the big screen in The Addams Family, an animated film that not only boasts a stacked voice cast that includes Charlize Theron, Oscar Isaac, Chloë Grace Moretz, Finn Wolfhard, Allison Janney, and Bette Midler (plus even more, but whew!), but also incorporates character designs directly inspired by Addams original cartoons. The story follows the kooky titular family as they flee yet another town that misunderstands them and settle into an abandoned asylum in New Jersey, only to butt heads with a home improvement reality show host whose goal is to homogenize the entire town. The Addamses have always stood for the power of individuality and represented the part of all of us that sometimes feels like an outsider, which is typically great fodder for a children s film, but critics say The Addams Family mostly misses the mark. Not only does it drown viewers in its sweetness, its script is somehow both altogether predictable and disappointingly disjointed to feel like a single cohesive tale. It s probably plenty engaging for toddlers, but it may be hit-or-miss for anyone older than that. Space Force marks the highly-anticipated reunion of The Office alums Greg Daniels and Steve Carell. Carell, who co-created the series with Daniels, plays four-star General Mark R. Naird, who leads the newly-minted sixth branch of the U.S. Armed Services a concept directly inspired by Donald Trump s very-real announcement to have American boots back on the moon by 2024. John Malkovich s Dr. Adrian Mallory is Naird s unlikely partner, offering unwelcome scientific insight during every step of the mission. According to the first reviews of the series, the timely comedy struggles to connect with audiences and many of the jokes fall flat, but the show s two leads deliver the goods in bringing their characters to life.Here’s what critics are saying about Season 1 of Space Force:Steve Carell and John Malkovich have strong comedic chemistryBut where the show really strikes a chord is in the more heartfelt, charming moments – particularly between Carrell’s regimented veteran Naird and Malkovich’s stubborn head scientist Dr. Adrian Mallory. —Nicola Austin, We Have a HulkCarell remains likable and charismatic, even if his gravelly voice as Mark sounds a bit forced, and he and Malkovich (underrated for his comedic abilities) have entertaining chemistry. — Josh Bell, CBRAnd the show comes to life most when we get to watch Carell and Malkovich go head-to-head as military determination clashes with scientific limitations. — Nola Ojomu, MetroTogether, Carell and Malkovich forge a charismatic pair that could carry even more episodes than they already do, while Malkovich’s Dr. Mallory could certainly stand for more development on his own. — Ben Travers, IndieWireCarell and Malkovich make a great comedic duo! — Grace Randolph, Beyond the Trailer(Photo by Aaron Epstein/Netflix)Carell does his best to distance himself from Michael ScottCarell is good playing Naird as a straight-laced military man, who rigidly adheres to his principles even when they make him utterly depressed. After a long day on the job, he s a good dad, who makes time to help his daughter with her math homework.— Jonathan W. Hickman, The Newnan Times-HeraldMark Naird isn’t exactly Michael Scott 2.0. He has a wife, Maggie (Lisa Kudrow in a part-time role), a teenage daughter, Erin (Diana Silvers), and is more aggressive and confident than Michael ever was. He’s a plausibly orthodox military man; when Maggie complains that he’s too rigid in his thinking, he insists, “I can be flexible if I’m ordered to be.” But the way Naird stalks through most of the episodes as a defiantly ignorant, periodically bigoted a hole feels unfortunately very reminiscent of that first Office season when Michael was unbearable. — Alan Sepinwall, Rolling StoneCarrell plays General Mark R. Naird like a puffed-up, military-issue Michael Scott complete with earnest love for his workmates and an inability to recognise the error of his ways until it s too late. —Brian Lloyd, entertainment.ieUnfortunately, the jokes fail to connect But it might be easier to listen to than most of the jokes. Space Force is inexplicably unfunny, a black hole for laughter, with stretches of bombs lasting minutes, not just because the gags rarely work, but because there aren t that many jokes in the first place. It feels like the first draft of a comedy before the jokes were put in. — Tim Surette, TV GuideThe jokes themselves are also scarce, and when they do show up, they can be painfully all over the place. — Sean Price, The SpoolDaniels and Carell have failed to give their series any discernible point of view, delivering instead an innocuous and startlingly unfunny sitcom about military bureaucracy. — Kristen Baldwin, EWPut a different way, for Space Force to work, Carell and Daniels — as capable a pair of satirists as we have (see The Office) — would need to come with their humorous focus and targets incredibly well honed. Through the first season, despite fitful highlights, that just isn t there. — Daniel Fienberg, THRHere’s a comedy for people either desperate for new Office content, or who still find “covfefe” funny. —Blake Goble, Consequence of Sound(Photo by Aaron Epstein/Netflix)Political satire or surreal comedy — the show struggles to find its toneAt certain points it feels like biting satire, others complete farce. Sometimes the show is super silly and surreal, and other times it feels like a straight comedy. That inconsistent tone makes it so that you never know what you’re watching or what you’ll get from scene to scene, episode to episode. — Michael Walsh, NerdistThe series, of course, isn’t going to come without having some contemporary references. On the political side, there are clear-as-day references to Senator Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Ortez. Though for whatever reason, the Schumer-esque character is a congressman rather than a senator. Instead of AOC, we have AYC (Ginger Gonzaga) aka Angry Young Congresswoman.— Danielle Solzman, Solzy at the MoviesAdmittedly, the parodies are a little too on-the-nose at times, removing the suspension of reality some might expect while they put on a movie or TV series. Even then, that s something that speaks volumes to the world we live in, rather than to the quality of the programming itself. — Adam Barnhardt, Comic BookIts pieces of political satire are both too literal (as when a young liberal congresswoman named “Anabela Ysidro-Campos,” played by Ginger Gonzaga, gives Space Force’s hell in a hearing that evokes an SNL cold open) and too dated (Mark’s annoying communications manager, played by Ben Schwartz, is “Tony Scarapiducci,” or more colloquially, “F Tony” as in “F Jerry,” I guess?). — Caroline Framke, VarietyThe ensemble cast is spectacularAnd their team is ensemble gold: Don Lake as Naird s overly eager-to-please assistant, Jimmy O. Yang (Silicon Valley) as Mallory s unflappable No. 2 and Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation) as the smarmiest of media managers. [ ] Maybe the best reason to enlist in Space Force: the posthumous performance of Fred Willard in one of his last TV roles as Naird s lovingly befuddled dad, a grace note for an earnestly amusing show that isn t afraid to wear its heart on its star-spangled sleeve. — Matt Roush, TV InsiderBen Schwartz , whom many will remember for his cheeky Jean-Ralphio in Parks and Recreation, is still a comic relief at all times. — Mikel Zorrilla, EspinofOh, and every single time the Armed Forces 4-Star Generals meet, you are sure to be giggling in your seat. It is comprised of greats like Jane Lynch and Patrick Warburton and the dry humor is basically a masterpiece. Trust me. Whenever they showed the room, I knew it was about to be a hilarious scene.I have to mention others like Tawny Newsome, Fred Willard (RIP), and Jimmy O. Yang. Each of them bring their own elements to the show. You know you have a good show on your hands when the supporting characters make you laugh just as hard as the main characters. In fact, Steve Carell almost plays the straight man in this one — almost. — Tessa Smith, Mama s GeekySpace Force hol

This Week s Ketchup brings you seven headlines from the world of film development news, covering such titles as One-Punch Man, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark 2, and Venom: Let There Be Carnage. This WEEK S TOP STORYSONY DELAYS SPIDER-MAN AND VENOM SEQUELS, MOVES UP UNCHARTED(Photo by ©Marvel/©Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)This week saw a number of release date changes for some of Sony s biggest titles, beginning with the Venom sequel, starring Tom Hardy as the titular anti-hero and Woody Harrelson as (presumably) the crimson red serial killer Carnage. That movie had been scheduled for October 2, 2020, but Venom 2 became Venom: Let There Be Carnage as it got bumped back eight months to next summer on June 25, 2021 (taking the spot where The Batman previously was to have been released). Sony Pictures also quickly took advantage of the announcement to Tweet out a brief teaser of the new title. Then, late on Friday, Sony further announced that its third Spider-Man film featuring the MCU s Tom Holland, which was set to open on July 16, 2021, will be pushed back four months to November 5, the release date of Marvel s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which was itself then also pushed back to March 5, 2022. Remember that domino effect we were talking about? Holland s other big film, the video game adaptation Uncharted, was then moved forward from October 8, 2021 to replace the untitled Spider-Man sequel in the now-vacant July 16 slot. To top it all off, the sequel to the Oscar-winning animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which had been planned for April 8, 2022, was also pushed back six months to October 7 of the same year. Whew!Other Top Headlines1. WARNER BROS. DELAYS THE RELEASES OF THE BATMAN AND SHAZAM 2 (Photo by Matt Reeves)Some of the movies originally scheduled for the summer of 2020 have been pushed back because of COVID-19, which has resulted in a domino effect, with their delays leading to delays in other films. In some cases, the movies scheduled for next year that were supposed to be filming right now need that much more extra time to get filmed, get through post-production, and get released. Few movies need quite as much time as supehero movies do, so it was probably always inevitable that Warner Bros. would have to push some of their 2021 and 2022 DC Comics movies back a bit. The biggest film being delayed is The Batman, from 6/25/2021 to October 1, 2021. Shazam! 2 was to have been released on April 1, 2022, but is now scheduled for November 4, 2022. Another studio that delayed two of their big franchise movies is Paramount Pictures, which has delayed Mission: Impossible 7 from 7/23/2021 to 11/19/2021 and Mission: Impossible 8 from 8/5/2022 to 11/4/2022, which is a curious move because it means they just put their big Tom Cruise action movie right up against the Shazam! sequel that also just moved.2. ARE YOU READY FOR (MORE) SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK? (Photo by CBS Films)Lionsgate probably did not have as big of box office success with last year s Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (Certified Fresh at 78%) (5 million worldwide) as they might have hoped, but the PG-13 horror film was also produced relatively cheaply ( million), and it s also one that should have a good shelf life, since it can be revived every Halloween for a new generation of kids. That is presumably part of why Paramount Pictures (taking over from CBS Films) felt confident enough with the possible new franchise as they have pulled the trigger on a sequel by hiring the same director and writers. Director André Øvredal (Trollhunter, The Autopsy of Jane Doe) and writers Dan and Kevin Hageman can now spend their COVID-19 stay-at-home time working on a new set of stories from Alvin Schwartz s original anthology books for the next movie. Which stories from the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark books do you think should be adapted for the second movie?3. A HUNGER GAMES PREQUEL IS IN THE WORKS(Photo by Murray Close/Lionsgate courtesy Everett Collection)Before Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace came out over 20 years ago, there was a time when people were perhaps more optimistic about a popular franchise going back a generation to tell a prequel story about the franchise s big bad villain. Now, people look back at the Star Wars prequels and many think three movies about the young Darth Vader were maybe not a great deal, but hey, another popular franchise would never make the same mistake, right? Tell that to the people who mad The Hunger Games, because author Suzanne Collins has written an upcoming novel called The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes (5/19/2020) about the future villain Coriolanus Snow when he was a young 18-year-old man. Lionsgate has quickly picked up the rights to The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, which will again be directed by Francis Lawrence, who directed all of the Hunger Games movies except the first one. The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes tells the story of young Coriolanus Snow, who is frustrated when he discovers he has been assigned to mentor the girl tribute from impoverished District 12 (the same district that Jennifer Lawrence s Katniss Everdeen will also eventually come from).4. POPULAR ANIME FRANCHISE ONE-PUNCH MAN GETS LIVE-ACTION ADAPTATION(Photo by Viz Media)Although last year s Pokemon: Detective Pikachu was usually credited as being a success for video game movies, the argumennt could also be made that it was just as much an adaptation of anime and manga, which is another type of live-action adaptation that has mostly struggled in Hollywood to date. As with most of these situations, it s inevitably just a matter of time before someone in the industry figures out the right project, which then becomes a big enough success that it opens the gates for others. Sony Pictures is gambling that perhaps the popular anime series One-Punch Man could be exactly that, as they are now developing a live-action One-Punch Man movie, which will be adapted for the big screen by Venom screenwriters Scott Rosenberg and Jeff Pinkner. One-Punch Man tells the continuing adventures of a superhero called Saitama who has perfected his fighting abilities to the point where he can literally defeat any opponent with just one punch, but that overwhelming power has also left him bored with his life.

This Week s Ketchup brings you more headlines from the world of film development news, covering new titles like Don t Breathe 2, The Flash, Resident Evil, and Thomas Friends.This WEEK S TOP STORYDOCTOR STRANGE TO CO-STAR IN NEXT SPIDER-MAN(Photo by © Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures)We don t know when the next Avengers will be after Avengers: Endgame, but that movie also became the box office champion of all time (a record that COVID-19 may have made impossible to break), so obviously, Marvel isn t going to give up on the Avengers theme, even if the movies don t have Avengers in the title. The fourth MCU movie on the schedule awaiting release (after Black Widow, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, and Eternals) will be the not-yet-titled third Spider-Man movie (12/17/2021) starring Tom Holland. Just last week, that movie was the focus of the surprising news that Jamie Foxx will be reprising his role as Electro from The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (starring Andrew Garfield, not Tom Holland). We now know that Benedict Cumberbatch will also be appearing in the next Spider-Man as Spidey s Avengers teammate Doctor Strange, which we l
OK, commenters: Fire up your engines because we re tackling a big one in our latest edition of Vs., pitting the Star Wars Prequels against the Star Wars Sequels and declaring definitively which galactic triptych is the superior set of films. We re looking at box office data and Tomatometer scores for Episodes 1-3 and 7-9, as well as which trilogy delivered the best moments and gave us the most memorable characters. Are you a Darth Maul vs. Qui-Gon vs. Obi-Wan person? Or do you prefer your lightsaber battles more of the Throne Room variety? Does a Jar Jar Binks outweigh the awesomeness of Ewan McGregor s young Obi-Wan? And how do they compare to Babu Frik? Watch above as Rotten Tomatoes Contributing Editor Mark Ellis lays out the case for both trilogies and – bravely – declares a winner.Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is available digitally on March 17, 2020.
Twelve years after depicting the experiences of African-American soldiers during World War II in Miracle at St. Anna, Spike Lee takes on the Vietnam War with Da 5 Bloods, and this time the reviews are much more positive. Critics are raving about the Netflix drama, which follows four Black vets as they return to Vietnam to dig up a buried stash of gold bars and retrieve the remains of their squad leader. The political action hybrid is being touted as one of Lee’s best ever, while Delroy Lindo’s performance is receiving the year’s biggest Oscar buzz yet.Here’s what critics are saying about Da 5 Bloods:How does it rank among all the Spike Lee joints?One of Lee’s most powerful films to date. Ben Rolph, Discussing FilmDa 5 Bloods is one of Lee’s most complete films. Sean O Connell, Cinema BlendHis most action-driven film to date. Chris Bumbray, JoBloDa 5 Bloods is his agit-prop action movie… one of the greatest films Spike Lee has ever made. Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/VultureDa 5 Bloods bears a… resemblance to Inside Man for the way it uses genre clothing as a wry Trojan horse. Eric Kohn, IndieWireSpike Lee hits a new career peak with this game-changer. Peter Travers, Rolling StoneIt’s another Lee effort that’s not quite as tidy as it could be… [but] Da 5 Bloods continues a strong run for Lee. Aaron Neuwirth, We Live EntertainmentHow good is Delroy Lindo here?Delroy Lindo offers the best performance of his career. Robert Daniels, The PlaylistLindo makes audacious choices in what might be a career-best performance. David Rooney, Hollywood ReporterIn many ways, Da 5 Bloods is Delroy Lindo s movie, with his performance fierce. Chris Bumbray, JoBloLindo is dynamite. Peter Debruge, VarietyOne of the best performances to come out of a Spike Lee joint… [it] almost rivals Denzel Washington’s in Malcolm X. Odie Henderson, RogerEbert.comI have no idea if the Oscars will actually happen after this surreal year, but if they do, and the Academy fails to nominate Lindo, something is seriously wrong. Chris Evangelista, Slashfilm(Photo by Netflix)Who else deserves some credit?Clarke Peters and Isiah Whitlock Jr. deserve to be rightly involved in future award conversations. Ben Rolph, Discussing FilmDa 5 Bloods is among Lee’s most awards-friendly material to date, so a full-throated campaign seems to be in order. Joey Magidson, Hollywood NewsIt deserves close to a dozen nominations… the picture, the script and director Lee all deserve nomination consideration, as does the lush and booming score by Lee’s longtime collaborator Terence Blanchard. Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-TimesSo the music is good?Terence Blanchard and Marvin Gaye rule the soundtrack. Blanchard’s score is bombastic, terrifying and militaristic one minute, achingly beautiful the next. Odie Henderson, RogerEbert.comThough this compliment sounds like a broken record, the work done by life-long Lee collaborator Terence Blanchard on the 5 Bloods score is exceptional. The music elevates the material, cementing Blanchard’s status as God-tier in the realm of film composers. Sean O Connell, Cinema BlendThe only thing slightly souring it is an often distracting score by Terence Blanchard, but even that eventually finds its groove. Chris Evangelista, SlashfilmTerence Blanchard s original score is, at times, completely overbearing, and can feel unrelated to the image. Jordan Hoffman, TV Guide(Photo by David Lee/Netflix)What about the decision not to de-age the older actors in the flashback scenes?It s a testament to [Lee’s] faith in the audience that you never question it. The choice works. Chris Bumbray, JoBloIn these actors’ weary faces, incongruously bridging the divide between past and present, we see the most literal possible visualization of a war without end. Justin Chang, Los Angeles TimesThe sentiment that these men never left the war, and the war never left them, even when they returned home to grapple with their grief, visually works. Barely. Robert Daniels, The PlaylistIt’s a choice that doesn’t work. Boseman simply looks young and childish educating elders like Lindo, Peters, Lewis, and Whitlock Jr. on the battlefield. Ashley Ray-Harris, AV ClubHow is the script?Much of the pleasure of the movie comes from the men’s nonstop grousing, and if the arguments sometimes seem rigged or overblown, they are rarely under-felt. Justin Chang, Los Angeles TimesDa 5 Bloods has a mostly solid script… but some moments don’t ring the same way as others. Spencer Perry, ComicBook.comDa 5 Bloods is so sophisticated early on that it’s disheartening to see it fall back on lazy clichés. Peter Debruge, VarietyLee has always been a master of using the cinematic tropes that have always worked as an okey-doke: the left hand lures you in with the familiar before the right hand blindsides you with the unexpected punching power of the intended point. Odie Henderson, RogerEbert.com(Photo by Netflix)Does Lee do a good job juggling the various plot elements?At just over two and a half hours, there’s certainly a lot of movie for Lee to work with, and I’d say the time is well spent. Aaron Neuwirth, We Live EntertainmentThere s a lot of plot unpacked in the 2.5-hour movie s first half, but Lee shuffles through it with fluidity and verve, aided by the tetchy but mostly genial group s camaraderie. David Rooney, Hollywood ReporterLee got jammed up by jamming too much into 2008’s The Miracle of St. Anna… Not here, where the subject gets the laser focus it demands. Peter Travers, Rolling StoneThe movie wanders off in some odd directions, but the Bloods’ bond keeps it grounded. Eric Kohn, IndieWireDa 5 Bloods works on a number of levels… While the lack of a true focus can muddle the message somewhat, Lee is never short on big ideas and he’s one of the few directors we would trust to share them in the way he does. Travis Hopson, Punch Drunk CriticsThe gold element… undermines the movie’s strengths. Treasure chasing leads the characters towards a harmful and unconvincing action finale. Radheyan Simonpillai, NOW TorontoLee’s film suffers from languid pacing, partly owing to the epic nearly bursting open from its litany of themes. Robert Daniels, The Playlist(Photo by Netflix)Is this the movie we need right now?Da 5 Bloods couldn’t have come at a more timely point in the year. Danielle Solzman, Solzy at the MoviesDa 5 Bloods arrives at a time when the director’s singular voice couldn’t be more needed… [Lee] has made another film that uncannily meets its moment. Ann Hornaday, Washington PostExceptionally well timed, since its political anger feels so urgent that it can scarcely be contained by the parameters of a TV screen. Justin Chang, Los Angeles TimesThe last fifteen minutes… plays so relevantly and powerfully, it’s as if Lee filmed the concluding scenes during the last two weeks. Robert Daniels, The PlaylistLet’s be clear: Lee has always been ahead-of-his-timely… it’s hard to imagine a more resonant movie for this moment. Peter Debruge, VarietyLee s point, which he makes swiftly and with blistering efficiency, is that it can t be called prescient when it s sadly perpetual. David Rooney, Hollywood ReporterLee has made more than a soul-stirring film for our time. He’s made one for the ages. Peter Travers, Rolling StoneDa 5 Bloods premieres on Netflix on Friday, June 12.
