Here s why the film is getting a mixed reaction:Posted by The Rotten Tomatoes Channel on Tuesday, September 3, 2019Horror sequels are often disappointing, but It: Chapter Two is a bit of an easy win. It isn’t a cash grab (at least, not in the most cynical sense); the writer and the director are the same, and it’s a continued Stephen King adaptation that follows up one of the most successful horror movies of all time — financially and critically. Still, that means this sequel, set 27 years after the original’s events, has a lot to live up to. But overall, the second installment is recommended in more early reviews than not. Thanks to great casting, a lot of heart, and more big scares, the movie floats above most other horror sequels.Here’s what critics are saying about It: Chapter Two:Does it live up to expectations?There’s enough here that works for horror fans to make it an entertaining and worthwhile sequel experience as we get some big scares and laughs in an even bigger studio horror film. Rob Hunter, Film School RejectsIf you’re a fan of the first movie, you’ll love this sequel. Dorian Parks, Geeks of ColorI left the theater feeling happy that the film served as a proper conclusion to its highly successful previous installment. Sarah Musnicky, Nightmarish ConjuringsIt seems as if none of the filmmakers… knew that the razzle-dazzle of the first installment was in the story and performances and not the spectacle and effects. Clayton Davis, AwardsCircuit.comHow does it compare to the first chapter?The film is much darker… kind of shocking, compared to the first film. (It’s so different I had to double-check after that the same team made this film.) Mike Ryan, UproxxIt Chapter Two has a more fragmented structure and jerkier rhythm than the preceding film. Jim Vejvoda, IGN MoviesIn retrospect, it’s easy to see that the 2017 film was just a glorified trailer for this movie. Peter Debruge, Variety(Photo by Brooke Palmer/© 2019 WARNER BROS. ENTERTAINMENT INC.)What about the cast?Kudos to casting director Rich Delia; this ensemble is the real star of the film. Kate Erbland, IndieWireCasting director Rich Delia deserves a standing ovation. Matt Donato, We Got This CoveredThe casting of the adult Losers had to be absolutely on point in order to sell the audience on the believability of the characters. Needless to say, they absolutely nailed it. Sarah Musnicky, Nightmarish ConjuringsTheir chemistry is electric, their humor is pitch-perfect, and their ensemble scenes are far and away the strongest part of the movie. It s hard not to love the Losers Club, even all these years later. Meg Downey, GameSpotThe cast worked so well with one another, you’d think they were actually childhood friends growing up. Dorian Parks, Geeks of ColorWhile the adult Losers are all effective in their own ways, they never quite resonate like their teen counterparts. Jim Vejvoda, IGN MoviesWe hear Bill Hader runs away with the movie Hader is the heart and soul of the horror epic. Clayton Davis, AwardsCircuit.comFew actors are so skilled at melding a comedian’s pain with their bluster, but Hader makes it look easy…Hader shines brightest in an ensemble without a weak link. Kate Erbland, IndieWireHader’s exceptionally comedic, layered, and nuanced performance will move you to tears with laughter and heartbreak. Griffin Schiller, The PlaylistHow does it handle the flashbacks?The picture’s pacing loses some steam whenever the filmmakers flash back to the Losers’ childhood memories. Courtney Howard, Fresh FictionThe flashbacks themselves too often re-tread what we already know from the first film and pull the sense of action out of the present. Haleigh Foutch, ColliderNewly filmed (and de-aged) scenes with the young actors take up much more time than they should. They act as a shorthand for character development I wish the adult actors got to play. Kyle Anderson, NerdistThese flashbacks just serve to remind us of the delightful chemistry those relative newcomers shared, something that doesn t really happen for the older bunch. John DeFore, Hollywood ReporterDoes it retain the heart of the first chapter?Much of [its] strength is focused on the heart… when things do connect, all the right heartstrings are tugged. Michael Roffman, Consequence of SoundBeneath all the big special effects and geysers of blood of It Chapter Two exists people who build their houses in your heart. We live and die with these characters. Chris Evangelista, SlashfilmThe heart of the first film is still there in It Chapter Two it’s just buried under a layer of self-indulgent bloat. Jim Vejvoda, IGN MoviesAnd the humor?The film’s character-driven humor works far better than the jarring, Evil Dead-style gags used during what are supposed to be scary moments. Jim Vejvoda, IGN MoviesThe humor feels too present at times, the film’s tone wobbles and suffers as a result. Rob Hunter, Film School RejectsIt s so intent on being funny that it undercuts its ability to be scary. Scott Mendelson, Forbes(Photo by Brooke Palmer/© 2019 WARNER BROS. ENTERTAINMENT INC.)Is it scary?The film is never quite as scary as it should be, but it’s often disturbing and upsetting to the point where you’re guaranteed to feel uncomfortable – and that’s exciting. Chris Evangelista, SlashfilmThe one that opens the film… is the film’s horrifying high point and an intensely terrifying sequence that dwarfs the less human monsters that follow. Rob Hunter, Film School RejectsNearly all the scares that follow are hallucinatory in nature, most of them sight gags made possible by CGI. Peter Debruge, VarietyThe film relies far more on CGI and jump scares than even its predecessor did. And some of these CG monsters aren’t particularly well done. Jim Vejvoda, IGN MoviesIt seems a weird thing to say in a horror movie, but too many extended spookhouse sequences lessen the impact of each one. Kyle Anderson, NerdistWhat it’s not is very scary… you get Stranger Things-style spooks here, and that’s just fine. Johnny Oleksinski, New York PostBut Skarsgård’s Pennywise is still nightmare fuel?Skarsgård remains a firestorm in the villainous role… hilarious and horrifying in a way distinctly all his own. Haleigh Foutch, ColliderSkarsgård is incredibly terrifying… [he] has made Pennywise his own and quite literally knocks it out of the park. Sarah Musnicky, Nightmarish ConjuringsHe’s legit terrifying in the first film, but he’s somewhat short-changed here outside of a haunting sequence in his human form. Rob Hunter, Film School Rejects(Photo by Courtesy of Warner Bros. Pictures)Will fans of the book be happy?I think fans of Stephen King are going to really enjoy IT Chapter Two. Kyle Anderson, NerdistMuschietti delivered on his promise of indulging in the spiritual side of King’s 1986 novel. Michael Roffman, Consequence of SoundIt Chapter Two may never quite live up to its built-in hype, but it delivers on King’s message – and how can you beat that? Chris Evangelista, SlashfilmI believe most audiences will like the changes made to the Ritual, but die-hard book fans may not like it depending on how much they enjoy change. Sarah Musnicky, Nightmarish ConjuringsOnce you realize how faithful to the novel the movie’s trying to be, you get the sense that It Chapter Two is meant to read strangely… intentionally off, childlike, and the sort of thing one could imagine King having a soft chuckle at. Charles Pulliam-Moore, io9And what about that epic runtime?It: Chapter Two is much longer than it needs to be, but it builds to something significant. Peter Debruge, VarietyThis 2-hour-49-minute movie drags more than it jumps, wearing out its premise and possibly also your patience as it lumbers toward the final showdown. A.O. Scott, New York TimesSome spectacle [is] hard to stay too invested in or get scared by when you might find yourself checking your watch. Brandon Davis, ComicBook.comIt Chapter Two is a long film that thankfully never feels its length. Rob Hunter, Film School RejectsIt: Chapter Two opens everywhere on September 6.
What it is: From creators (and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia vets) Charlie Day, Megan Ganz, and Rob McElhenney (who also stars), Mythic Quest: Raven’s Banquet is a traditional workplace comedy in that it features an overbearing, self-involved, and oft-clueless boss overseeing a team of quirky misfits. But by placing it in the unexplored setting of a hit video game production company, it’s a fun look behind the curtain of the ever-growing world of fanboys and fangirls alike.Why you should watch it: McElhenney is in top comedic (and physical) form as the boss of Mythic Quest, but it’s the ensemble of both sitcom regulars and new faces that keeps you coming back for more. Charlotte Nicdao in particular co-leads as a disgruntled, undervalued employee and manages to humanize her neuroticism to endearing and hilarious effect. Season 2 premieres May 7 on Apple TV+.Where to watch: Apple TV+Commitment: Approx. 5.5 hours (for the first season and Everlight special)环球国际自从英雄联盟手游在国内开始大规模测试，很多玩家就在纳闷“已经有了王者荣耀，腾讯干嘛还整个英雄联盟手游进来”？
4. 呼朋唤友 随心所欲
The mix of genres and tones made it something special and something worth shepherding through two development cycles and two streaming platforms.“There s horror, there s fantasy, there s magical keys, there s a murder mystery, there s teen drama. And trying to sort those all out and kind of calibrate them and put them all together and make them all work together was something that s hard to do, Cuse said.“It doesn t fit into a box, Averill added, which I think is what s made it difficult and a challenge to adapt, but also what makes it so special and unique.”Cuse credited Averill with helping him “finding a shared vision for how we wanted to do the show.” At the same time, he considers the long development something akin to the way many TV shows begin.“Just in the same way that if you make a pilot, you ve made calibrations and readjustments [for its eventual series], we tried to learn lessons from the previous iterations,” Cuse said.Those lessons led Cuse and Averill away from the more grotesque horror elements – though some of that still occurs – into a series which leans more into the family and fantasy aspects of the comic book. Averill said it was a conscious decision to avoid the graphic horror because “once you go there, there s sort of no going back once you ve set that tone.” Also, she noted the material does not have to be gory to be scary.“There are other ways to get there,” she said.And the other ways the television series gets to some of Locke Key’s ideas may surprise readers of the comic the most. Elements barely hinted at in the initial two stories become important touch points in the program’s first season. Character relationships are refocused and, perhaps most unsettling for some fans of the comic, the town of Lovecraft is now Matheson – a reference to horror and sci-fi writer Richard Matheson, who also worked in television and saw his stories adapted into films like I Am Legend and The Box.(Photo by Christos Kalohoridis/Netflix)As both producers pointed out, bringing a comic book to television is an exercise in “adaptation, not translation.”“I think that we were so fortunate to get the freedom to remix from Joe Hill himself,” Cuse revealed. “I mean Joe was an active participant in our creative process. He co-authored the pilot. We had a lot of conversations with him all along the way. And his comment was, ‘Just doing a literal adaptation of my comic would be boring.’ And so he liberated us to not be afraid to really follow our creative instincts and desires.”Those instincts often led the team to bring ideas from later in the comic into the forefront of the show for the sake of clearly delineating character ambitions. In the case of Dodge (Laysla De Oliveira, pictured), whose motivations are a mystery for some time in the book, Averill felt it was important to reveal the character’s true nature and objective as soon as possible. She was also pleased by the way it dovetailed into stories of the Locke family in Matheson.“I think it s a really nice reveal for our kids when they discover that what s happening to them now has to do [with Dodge],” she said.Other changes, like the Locke family initially living in Seattle instead of San Francisco were for “aesthetic” reasons and often suggested by Hill himself, who Cuse said was fascinated with the process and used the opportunity to make changes to his world. This is also the underlying reason Lovecraft became Matheson.“He just wanted to pay homage to Richard Matheson who had died recently,” Cuse explained.Connor Jessup, who plays oldest Locke son Tyler – and who came to the series with the Netflix iteration – felt the long development and remixing of ideas aided the show it getting to the core spirit of the comic.“I think [it’s] about growing up through trauma, essentially,” he said.As a result, the show feels more of like a fantasy adventure to him than the gothic horror he saw in the comics when he sat down to read them.But part of Locke Key’s magic, both as a comic book and as a television show, revolves around the way it transforms into different genres with each scene and combination of characters. This was part of the appeal for Darby Stanchfield, who plays the grieving Locke matriarch Nina.“It s almost like three different layers wrapped up in one,” she said.Of those layers – the fantasy, the mystery, and the family – Stanchfield felt from talking with Cuse and Averill that the family aspect was the most important. The Lockes have been thought a lot when we first meet them and their first few months in Matheson are no easier. Nevertheless, the Lockes’ bond endures and, to Stanchfield, forms the heart of the show.“Which to me really extended to the heart of the kids and their high school friends, she added.In perhaps one of the bigger departures from the initial comic book storylines, a group of high school kids called “The Savini Squad” — in honor of horror effects make-up legend Tom Savini — become prominent in the story very quickly, which was another one of Hill’s ideas for the show. Cuse said their appeal became apparent thanks to the iteration process.“It just seemed like, OK, this is going to be a big part of the show, he said. We should meet them in the pilot, we should get going with this.”The group, which quickly adopts Kinsey Locke (Emilia Jones) into their number, will no doubt become fan favorites.No matter how the show will be perceived, though, its curious production history will always be a part of its story. For Stanchfield and Jessup, taking over roles cast twice previously was something akin to taking over a part on stage. Nevertheless, there was some trepidation about watching the earlier versions.“At one point someone asked me if I would be interested in seeing the Hulu version of it, which was the previous version. And it unlocked like an enormous terror in me,” Jessup said. “I mean I m sure they did a beautiful job, but the thought of seeing someone else in the same situations still makes my skin — I feel so uncomfortable about it.”Stanchfield also avoided the other pilots, but part of her decision to do so was on instruction from Averill and Cuse (pictured), who saw through her initial performance as Nina a new way to develop the character.“We like your approach and we want you to just go with that,” she recalled them saying.That difference in the character will be immediately apparent to readers of the comic, but Nina’s underling problems will eventually surface.In fact, the unexpected way Locke Key utilizes its source material may earn it a special place in viewers hearts — provided fans of the comic see the value in the ways it is not a literal translation.“I hope the people who like the comics also like our show and that they are open to the changes and that they re excited by and surprised by some of the things that we do differently,” Jessup said. “For me it s always more exciting [that way]. I mean, I love the comics too, and I wouldn t want the show to try and be a cheap shadow imitation of it. I think it s better for the comics and for the show if it tries and finds its own language.”Locke Key launches Friday, February 7 on Netflix.Like this?

5.26.8 0月喜迎(Click to enlarge.)Well, it s all over, and thanks to the efforts of a dedicated fanbase, an unlikely challenger has taken the title as the Greatest Netflix Original Series. The odds were stacked against German sci-fi mystery series Dark, even though it boasts both a 94% average Tomatometer score and a 94% Audience Score. After all, it had to overcome challenges from The Crown, Mindhunter, and Peaky Blinders just to advance to the championship round. On the other hand, Black Mirror only narrowly defeated Stranger Things in the semifinal round, and with its cultural impact, one would have imagined it would pose a greater challenge to Dark than it did. In the end, Dark won the match-up by an avalanche, securing 80% of the votes.As always, thanks to everyone who voted in each round and rallied your friends and neighbors to participate we tallied over 2.5 million votes across all of the match-ups!

Spider-Man: Far From Home swung into theaters ahead of the July 4 holiday, ready to snatch up tons of cash and extend the MCU following the events of Infinity War and Endgame. Critics are liking what they see in this second solo(ish) outing for Tom Holland s Peter Parker; the movie is Certified Fresh at 92% on the Tomatometer right now, with reviews throwing praise at Holland, Zendaya, and MCU newcomer Jake Gyllenhaal, as well as the movie s twisty plot and its abundance of big laughs. But is it the best Spider-Man movie we ve seen? That s a hard call with Spider-Man 2 still lingering in people s memories, and last year s Into the Spider-Verse raising the bar of what s possible in animation. This week our RT Aftershow panel – host Mark Ellis, Geek Bomb s Maude Garett, and critics Scott Mantz and Joelle Monique – weighs in on that question, along with what they thought of Mysterio, the movie s many surprises, and where the MCU could be headed next.

This week s Ketchup brings you another 10 headlines from the world of film development news (the stories about what movies Hollywood is working on for you next), covering such titles as The Batman, Venom, and The Matrix 4.This WEEK S TOP STORYZOE KRAVITZ POUNCES ON CATWOMAN FOR THE BATMAN, PAUL DANO RIDES FOR RIDDLER(Photo by Gregorio T. Binuya/Everett Collection)Going into this week, the only actor that we had heard was in talks to play a villain in The Batman (6/25/2021) was Jonah Hill. Now we have two people confirmed, and none of their names is Jonah. Zoe Kravitz is Catwoman. On Thursday, the news broke that Hill had dropped out of talks to play a Batman villain, potentially because Hill had asked for million, twice what Warner Bros. was paying Robert Pattinson to be Batsy. Whatever his role was, The Riddler is now on the scene, who has signed on Paul Dano. Meanwhile, the search is still on for the third villain: Penguin. In related news, Robert Pattinson also made a surprising revelation this week, saying that his version of The Batman is not a hero. Other Top Headlines1. MATRIX 4: NEIL PATRICK HARRIS IN, JADA PINKETT-SMITH IN TALKS(Photo by Kristin Callahan/Everett Collection)Last week, we learned that Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Black Manta from Aquaman) had been cast in a new lead role (AKA not Morpheus, etc.). And this week, we heard about two other possible new additions, plus a returning cast member from the two sequels. Let s start with Jada Pinkett Smith, who is now in talks with Warner Bros to reprise her character Niobe, the ship captain. Jada Pinkett Smith s recent roles have included Bad Moms, Girls Trip, and this summer s Angel Has Fallen. One of the new characters will be played by Neil Patrick Harris; various guesses online include a Mr. agent, the adult Spoonboy, or a younger version of The Architect. The third name in play this week is Jessica Henwick, who is probably best known for playing Colleen Wing in Netflix-Marvel s Iron Fist series. 2. ROBERT EGGERS VIKING EPIC THE NORTHMAN ATTRACTS THE WITCH AND THE LIGHTHOUSE ALUM(Photo by A24/courtesy Everett Collection)This month s spooky black-and-white drama The Lighthouse is only director Robert Eggers second feature film (after 2015 s The Witch), but already the guy appears to be developing his own regular cast of actors. Eggers next film will be a Viking revenge film set in 10th century Iceland, and stars both previous and new to his troupe have been announced. Let s start with the new: Nicole Kidman and brothers Alexander and Bill Skarsgård. The previous: Anya Taylor-Joy and Willem Dafoe. In related news, Willem Dafoe also this week officially joined Guillermo del Toro s Nightmare Alley remake. 3. GAL GADOT TO PRODUCE AND STAR IN WORLD WAR II POLISH UNDERGROUND BIOPIC(Photo by Priscilla Grant/Everett Collection)It has long been a Hollywood tradition that when movie stars get to a certain status, the opportunity opens up for them to guide their own careersand potentially, those of others) through their own production company. Gal Gadot, whose next major film will be next summer s Wonder Woman 1984, has formed a company with her husband Jaron Varsano called Pilot Wave. The first announced film for the new company will be Irena Sendler, a historical thriller about the life of Polish Underground leader, whom Gal Gadot will also portray. Sendler s organization worked in the Warsaw ghetto of World War II to save over 2,500 Jewish children, among other anti-Nazi efforts.4. JOHN KRASINSKI AND RYAN REYNOLDS TEAMING UP FOR IMAGINARY FRIENDS(Photo by Paramount /Courtesy Everett Collection)After two indie films (Brief Interviews with Hideous Men and The Hollars), actor-turned-director John Krasinski had a surprise blockbuster hit with his third film, the sci-fi thriller A Quiet Place (in which he starred with his wife, Emily Blunt). Krasinski quickly moved ahead with a Quiet Place 2 sequel (3/20/2020), but with this week s news, Krasinski appears ready for another original movie. Krasinski will both direct and costar in the comedy Imaginary Friends, with Ryan Reynolds. The high concept comedy will tell the story of a man (Reynolds) with the magical ability to see other adult people s imaginary friends, some of which, lacking love and friendship, turn to the dark side. 5. JURASSIC WORLD 3 RECRUITS NEW STARS FROM SHE S GOTTA HAVE IT AND SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS(Photo by Netflix / courtesy Everett Collection)A few weeks ago, one of the big stories of that week was that original Jurassic Park stars Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, and Sam Neill were all returning for Jurassic World 3 (6/11/2021). This week, Universal Pictures appeared to be focusing instead on casting new roles. The first announced was Mamoudou Athie, who is probably best known for his role in Facebook Watch s Sorry For Your Loss, as well as in The Get Down and Patti Cake$. Then, earlier today, Variety also reported that DeWanda Wise of Netflix s She s Gotta Have It is now in talks for a leading role. It s not yet known what sort of roles either Athie or Wise will be playing when Jurassic World 3 is released on June 2021, the same month as Micronauts, Sesame Street, and The Batman.6. THE ADDAMS FAMILY SEQUEL ALREADY IN DEVELOPMENT FOLLOWING MILLION OPENING WEEKEND(Photo by MGM / courtesy Everett Collection)MGM probably had ideas in the work for a sequel to The Addams Family far before its release last week, but following its million opening weekend, it s go time. MGM has scheduled The Addams Family 2 for October 22, 2021, which is the weekend after Halloween Ends. It s not yet known if the original voice cast is also signed to return for the sequel. 7. NAOMIE HARRIS JOINING WOODY HARRELSON S CARNAGE IN VENOM 2 AS SHRIEK(Photo by Kristin Callahan/Everett Collection)We ve known since the ending of Venom that Woody Harrelson would be costarring in next year s Venom 2 (10/2/2020) as the crimson symbiote-powered serial killer Carnage. It wasn t until this week that it was revealed that Tom Hardy s Venom and Woody Harrelson s Carnage would actually be joined by a third symbiote-possessed character, in the form of the female villain Shriek. Sony Pictures didn t delay much after letting that news out, however, as just before we went to press today, we learned that Shriek will be portrayed by British actress Naomie Harris (Moonlight, Skyfall). 8. DANIEL KALUUYA WANTS TO GIVE THE WORLD A NEW BARNEY THE DINOSAUR MOVIE(Photo by Polygram Filmed Entertainment/courtesy Everett Collection)Last year marked the 20th anniversary of Barney s Great Adventure, which attempted to take the then-popular kids TV show, Barney Friends and turn it into a movie franchise. The plan didn t work and the TV show went off the air in 2009. Even so, Barney Friends obviously is remembered with some nostalgia by the now-adults who watched the show during its 90s heyday. And so perhaps it s not surprising that a Barney reprise is now in development. British actor Daniel Kaluuya, who is probably best known for both Get Out and his role in Black Panther, has teamed up with Mattel Film (via his 59% production company) to start development on a live-action Barney movie. It s not yet known in what form Barney will be depicted in this movie, but three possible options are: #1 a big purple foam costume like the original TV show, #2 a computer animated (but still cartoony) purple dinosaur, or #3, a full-giant-sized purple Tyrannosaur Rex (the original dinosaurs stood anywhere from 12 to 20 feet tall).
