这种手游在国内肯定拿不到版本号，而官网与游戏都是繁字，你应该猜到它在哪里上线以及怎么做到的吧。但有些玩家对此有更多吐槽，这款手游其实与另一款国产手游《闪烁之光》相差无几，除了宣传图里的游戏界面是抄的，游戏操作、界面与角色模型也与《闪烁之光》一样，唯独后者没有上述提到的FGO角色以及“隐藏内容”。毕竟《闪烁之光》在B站是有官方账号运营，且已度过2周年庆，该手游本身肯定不能有这些玩法，不然立即说再见。 (Photo by Open Roadt/courtesy Everett Collection)All Liam Neeson Movies Ranked by TomatometerAfter a major film debut with 1981 s Excalibur, Liam Neeson spent the rest of that swingin decade slowly climbing the acting ladder. (See him randomly in Krull, The Mission, The Dead Pool, and more, for example.) But after holding his own opposite Patrick Swayze in 1989 s Next of Kin, Neeson was at last upgraded to star for Sam Raimi s dark superhero movie Darkman where he spends most of the movie disfigured and fully covered in bandages. Still, Darkman was a financial success, especially for an original superhero IP in this era, and Neeson carried on with lending his baritone gravitas in dramas like the Certified Fresh Husbands and Wives.In 1994, Neeson nabbed his only Oscar acting nomination with the monumental Schindler s List, which would go on to win Best Picture for producer Steven Spielberg, who of course also got Best Director. Neeson took on another significant title historical role a few years later with Michael Collins, before entering the pop cultural fray as the decidedly unhistorical (though we suppose it depends on who you ask) Qui-Gon Jinn in Star Wars: Episode 1 The Phantom Menace. And after that, just into the 21st century, Neeson appeared in Gangs of New York, Kingdom of Heaven, and Batman Begins. A resume that includes working with Raimi, Spielberg, Allen, Lucas, Scorsese, Scott, and Nolan? Sounds like that d be a career peak for most And yet 2008 s Taken was still to come, which would transform Neeson into the go-to mid-budget action guy, create a cottage industry of similar flicks to follow in its wake. Some were pretty good (Cold Pursuit, A Walk Among The Tombstones), others came out decent (The Commuter, Non-Stop), a few were god-awful (Taken 2, Taken 3), and some were one was amazing (The Grey).We also recently saw Neeson s softer side resurface with Ordinary Love, his first romantic film since 2003 s Love Actually and one of the best-reviewed films of his career, proving he remains as versatile as ever. To celebrate his birthday, we take a look back on all Liam Neeson movies ranked by Tomatometer!
火柴人战争遗产皮肤版破解版不用网这款游戏是当下非常热门的火柴人系列经典战争玩法手游，游戏中的画面采用比较简约风的漫画风为玩家们带来数不清的游戏乐趣和策略体验，操作你的火柴人士兵，努力拆爆地方基地！感兴趣的话快来下载体验吧！火柴人战争遗产皮肤版无敌亚博网站官方South by Southwest, the annual conference of film, tech, music, gaming, and comedy, kicks off in Austin this Friday, March 8, and we re pumped. The 26th edition of the SXSW Film Festival — or “South-By,” as it has affectionately been dubbed — is looking just as promising as last year s, during which Certified Fresh favorites A Quiet Place, Isle of Dogs, and Hereditary delighted festivalgoers and rode the Texas-sized buzz to box-office success.SXSW 2019 will be bookended by two of the most anticipated horror titles of the year. As previously announced, Jordan Peele will open the festival with Us, his follow-up to the Oscar-winning, genre-bending phenomenon Get Out; the world premiere of Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer s Pet Sematary will close things out. We have pored over the slate of 131 films and singled out these nine features as the ones we re most excited to see with that infamously raucous SXSW crowd. You can find the full list of films that will screen Austin here.Alice (2019) 90%Director/Screenwriter: Josephine MackerrasCast: Emilie Piponnier, Martin Swabey, Chloe BorehamSynopsis: According to Director Josephine Mackerras, Alice is about personal revolution. When Alice discovers her husband is leading a double life, everything she once believed to be true is shattered. Abandoned with a child to take care of and pushed beyond her own boundaries, she discovers a strength she never knew she had, her sense of self expands, and a new personal revolution of self and identity begins.Why we re excited about it: This is Mackerras feature debut after several promising shorts, and looks to be a woman-on-the-edge French thriller mash-up of Notes on a Scandal and Blue Jasmine.Pet Sematary (2019) 57%Directors: Kevin Kölsch, Dennis WidmyerScreenwriters: Jeff Buhler, David KajganichCast: Jason Clarke, John Lithgow, Amy SeimetzSynopsis: This remake of an adaptation of Stephen King s terrifying novel about zombie pets tormenting families first caught our attention when a trailer for the film dropped late last year. The Starry Eyes directing duo bring their version – led by John Lithgow and Jason Clarke – to the Lone Star State s premiere film festival exactly 30 years after Mary Lambert s Pet Sematary hit theaters in 1989.Why we re excited about it: Mary Lambert s 1989 Pet Sematary definitely had us thinking twice about where to bury the family dog. This updated tale looks set to lean into all the decomposing critters with even more lost-in-the-woods creepy feels. Lithgow s casting is giving us serious 1980s throwback vibes, and Clarke might just be able to finally break into leading man status with a strong showing here.Villains (2019) 85%Directors/Screenwriters: Dan Berk, Robert OlsenCast: Bill Skarsgåard, Maika Monroe, Kyra Sedgwick, Jeffrey DonovanSynopsis: A couple of wannabe gangsters rob the wrong home, are thrust into a dark web of sadism at the hands of a seemingly normal suburban family, and must do everything they can to break out.Why we re excited about it: After IT, just saying the name Bill Skarsgård kinda gives us chills. Director duo Berk and Olsen have primarily worked in the VOD-style horror genre, but have brought some star power to their latest effort with Skarsgård and Greta star Maika Monroe.The Curse of La Llorona (2019) 28%(Photo by New Line Cinema)Director: Michael ChavesScreenwriters: Mikki Daughtry, Tobias IaconisCast: Linda Cardellini, Raymond Cruz, Patricia VelasquezSynopsis: The Latin legend of La Lorona is roaming the streets of Los Angeles during the 1970s. A social worker brushes off a mother s terrified warnings and is in turn pulled into a frightening world of supernatural horror.Why we re excited about it: You had us at James Wan. The modern-day horror master who launched the Conjuring, Saw, and Insidious franchises is in the producer s chair for this adaptation of the Latin American folk legend of La Llorona, the Weeping Woman who cries over lost her children and wreaks havoc by kidnapping kids and terrorizing mothers with her haunting cries. Sounds like a perfect recipe for scares.Stuber (2019) 42% (Work in Progress)Director: Michael DowseScreenwriter: Tripper ClancyCast: Kumail Nanjiani, Dave Bautista, Karen GillanSynopsis: An unassuming uber driver picks up a cop on the hunt for a brutal killer and inadvertently gets caught up in harrowing action.Why we re excited about it: Though not a completed effort, other films have headed to SXSW with the work-in-progress label and gone on to great success (The Disaster Artist, Keanu, Sausage Party). With two Guardians in tow, this was already one to stop for, but adding the red-hot Nanjiani just adds to the must see factor. Guardians showed us that Bautista has comedic chops, and if there s a chance we could pull some Avengers: Endgame clues from him or Gillan while in Austin, it will be worth our time.The Beach Bum (2019) 57%Director/Screenwriter: Harmony KorineCast: Matthew McConaughey, Snoop Dogg, Isla Fisher, Stefania Lavie Owen, Jimmy Buffett, Zac Efron, Martin LawrenceSynopsis: A hilarious examination of an aging hippie. Moondog, a lovable rogue who is living life by his own rules, encounters an equally entertaining cast of characters along the way.Why we re excited about it: Austin s own son, Matthew McConaughey, looks to return to his roots with some help from Zac Efron and Snoop Dogg. (Some of us still remember McConaughey playing the bongos in the nude outside his home.) Needless to say, it s not a stretch for the University of Texas grad to embody an aging beach hippie living by his own rules. Plus there is more than a likely chance that McConaughey s old friend Willie Nelson will be around for the premiere.Long Shot (2019) 81%Director: Jonathan LevineScreenwriter: Dan SterlingCast: Seth Rogen, Charlize Theron, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Andy Serkis, June Diane Raphael, Ravi Patel, Alexander SkarsgårdSynopsis: A romance between Hillary Clinton type diplomat and a fratboy journalist looks threaten her stellar reputation and presidential ambitions.Why we re excited about it: This Knocked Up–styled odd couple comedy pairs Rogen and Theron, she as a presidential candidate and he as her speechwriter. A comedic version of Scandal, perhaps? Rogen has had a long history of Certified Fresh premieres at SXSW as a star and producer: Blockers, The Disaster Artist, Sausage Party, and TV s The Preacher each enjoyed a Texas-sized welcome from fans and critics. We also spied some surprising chemistry between the two in the freshly released trailer, leaving us more than a little intrigued.Us (2019) 93%Director/Screenwriter: Jordan PeeleCast: Lupita Nyong o, Winston Duke, Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Anna Diop, Evan Alex, Shahadi Wright-Joseph, Madison Curry, Cali SheldonSynopsis: An upper-middle class African American family takes off with their two children for a once-in-a-lifetime beach vacation that turns into the ultimate nightmare when deranged doppelgangers invade. In Jordan Peele s next horror flick, we look to find out what happens when you become your own worst fear.Why we re excited about it: Jordan Peele s follow up to Get Out starring a Black Panther scene-stealer and our vote for 2019 s Scream Queen? Who isn t excited?Olympic Dreams (2019) 70%Alexi Pappas and Nick Kroll, Olympic Dreams Director: Jeremy TeicherScreenwriters: Alexi Pappas, Jeremy Teicher, Nick KrollCast: Nick Kroll, Alexi Pappas, Gus Kenworthy, Morgan Schild, Jamie AndersonSynopsis: At the Winter Olympics, a cross-country skier befriends a volunteer dentist after her Olympic dreams are dashed following a disappointing finish. They share a brief but heartfelt romance in an unlikely place.Why we re excited about it: Pulling double duty as writer and star, Nick Kroll (Big Mouth, Oh, Hello on Broadway) looks set to make a successful comedy-to-drama crossover. Filmed on location at the 2018 winter Olympics, the movie sees Kroll step into his first lead role as a cross-country skier who falls for another athlete (played by Alexi Pappas, who was an Olympic long-distance runner and co-wrote the script). The rom-com also co-stars Winter Olympics superstar Gus Kenworthy.Like this? Subscribe to our newsletter and get more features, news, and guides in your inbox every week.

Mark your calendars for stardate 11020.23 (we think) — that is, January 23, 2020 — when the highly anticipated Star Trek: Picard finally launches, the cast and creators announced at New York Comic-Con on Saturday.The CBS All Access spin-off stars Patrick Stewart as the legendary Jean-Luc Picard and will include numerous familiar faces from Star Trek: The Next Generation, which first introduced the titular character. Data (Brent Spiner), William Riker (Jonathan Frakes), Deanna Troi (Marina Sirtis), Seven of Nine (Jeri Ryan), and Hugh (Jonathan Del Arco) all make their return in the new series.Revisiting Picard 20 years later felt like less of a job and more of a gift, executive producer Akiva Goldsman said at the top of the October 5 Star Trek Universe panel at Madison Square Garden’s Hulu Theater.“I think we’ve done pretty well,” Goldsman said of living up to The Next Generation’s formidable standard. “You’re surrounded by a lot of people who love Star Trek and a lot of people who love Captain Picard — and who actually love Patrick Stewart — so it very quickly went from ‘job’ to ‘opportunity.’ We’re pretty blessed, and I don’t throw that word around.”To learn all the details from the event, including what’s in store for some of the franchise’s new faces, read on for everything we know about Star Trek: Picard.It’s an All-New Adventure With the Captain We Love(Photo by Matt Kennedy/CBS)The new journey with Picard and co. takes place after the events of the feature film Nemesis in 2002 (the death of Data, for one) and the eventual defeat of the Romulans (as established in the Picard-less 2009 feature). Picard has disassociated himself from Star Fleet and is spending his old age in retirement and isolation at Château Picard, where he’s joined by a trusted pitbull companion, Number One (a knowing nod to his longtime second-in-command Riker, of course).“We wanted it to be a real-time follow-up to where last we saw Picard,” Goldsman explained of the jump in time. “We wanted to let the ensuing years that have passed for us also [to] have passed for Jean-Luc, so we all spent a lot of time collaboratively filling in those 20 years.”And while there is development in the Picard scripts and its narrative architecture of what has happened to the former captain in the ensuing years, the story here picks up with the unexpected arrival of Dahj (Isa Briones), a young woman who turns to Picard for help following an enormous trauma, in turn reigniting Picard s desire to return to the Starfleet.Sir Patrick Needed Some Wooing to Return to the Role(Photo by Trae Patton/CBS)While Picard is one of Stewart’s best-known and most-beloved roles over the course of his expansive career, it’s also one that the 79-year-old thespian had vowed to never return to again. So how did executive producer Alex Kurtzman and his team of Star Trek diehards persuade him? Through an admiring patience and persistence.“He was sure about saying no. He was positively negative about the whole thing,” Kurtzman teased of the first pitch meeting between himself, Stewart, Goldsman, and supervising producer Kirsten Beyer. “We pitched and he said, ‘It’s lovely — and no thank you.’ He said, ‘I couldn’t possibly, but I really appreciate it.’”The idea initially came together as Kurtzman was mapping out his new string of his short film series, Short Treks, and posited the idea of a Picard-focused outing.“Akiva and Kirsten and I were sort of thinking about what that would be, and then we went, ‘A Short Trek would be great, but what if we could bring him back?’ ” Kurtzman recalled. “So I called his agent and I said, ‘I know he’s probably never coming back, but would you do us the favor of trying to set up a meeting?’”And while Stewart’s initial response was a decisive no, he soon reconsidered, asking for a four-page mock-up of the plan for the 10-episode order. What writer, executive producer, and Star Trek superfan Michael Chabon ended up turning in, as Stewart remembers it, was a bit longer.“I seem to remember 35 [pages],” Stewart said, laughing about the attempt by the Pulitzer Prize–winning novelist (for The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay) to woo him.“It was an incredible document,” Kurtzman agreed. “And I can tell you that one of the greatest moments that we had was coming to see you [Stewart] after you had read the document not knowing what the response was going to be, and you walked into the room and you were smiling. That was the moment.”Picard Isn’t All About Being a TNG Reunion, Though(Photo by Trae Patton/CBS)While the response in the room to seeing the likes of Data and Riker pop up in the NYCC trailer for Picard was rapturous, to say the least, the creators on stage did emphasize that they didn’t want it to be just a shallow reunion show. When asked about how they negotiated bringing back fan-favorite franchise vets and serving the heart of the story, executive producer Heather Kadin explained that no one was brought back thoughtlessly or without the bigger picture in mind.“A big concern was we did not want it to be — and especially Patrick did not want it to be — a TNG reunion show,” she said. “And I think what you can even tell from the trailer and what you’ll definitely tell when you watch the series is we only brought people back if their story really mattered to the story we were telling. We didn’t want it to be, ‘And then over here is Riker!’ You know? I don’t think the fans would’ve appreciated that, either, and it was really important to Patrick, who obviously has longstanding, deep relationships with these people, that if we’re going to go to them and say, ‘Join a show that’s called Picard,’ that we give them something significant to do. You’ll see that each one of them has a pivotal, emotional story to tell in our 10 episodes.”New Heroes Will Run A-Plenty — Though What’s in Store Is Still Under Wraps(Photo by Trae Patton/CBS)Joining the Picard creatives and Stewart on the NYCC stage were series newcomers Briones, Santiago Cabrera (Cristobal “Chris” Rios), Michelle Hurd (Raffi Musiker), Alison Pill (Dr. Agnes Jurati), Harry Treadaway ( Narek), and Evan Evagora (Elnor). While the actors are contractually obligated to remain tight-lipped, we did learn some necessary backstory for what to expect going into the January premiere.When Dahj comes in search for Picard’s help, that help quickly becomes a two-way street, Briones said.“When Dahj and Picard first meet, it’s this really special moment of two lost souls colliding in a way in this crazy circumstance that is born out of tragedy. [It’s] two people helping each other. It starts with me asking for help, but I think we help each other, which is a really, really beautiful moment to have with Sir Patrick Stewart,” Briones said.Though she couldn t reveal too much, she said “‘complicated’ is a good word” to describe the predicament Dahj finds herself in.“I am seeking help from him because of a horrible tragedy that I have just gone through, and my gut is telling me to go to Picard, and that in itself is so complicated, just the feeling of me needing someone and going to this man saying, ‘I need help,’” Briones said.Kadin added that much like Tilly on Star Trek: Discovery, Dahj will be a point of entry for non-Star Trek fans to jump into the world of Picard.“In the way Tilly has been a representation of someone new to the world on Discovery, I think you’ll find that Isa’s character gives you that way into this show,” she said. “But I also think that Patrick has so many fans from so many things that I think that he’s going to bring that to this show, and I think people are going to be able to be welcomed into it without a problem.”As far as the other characters, “complicated” remained the word of the hour, whether it was used to describe the shared history of Raffi and Picard (per Hurd: “We have a past. We’ve worked together, and we had a falling out.”); of Rios’s return to Starfleet after he left “due to some traumatic events in his past in relation to Starfleet,” according to Cabrera; or of the introduction of “odd couple” Romulans Narek and Elnor, who are navigating a world in which they are no longer welcome.Pill’s Dr. Jurati comes into the mix after being swept up in Picard’s once-in-a-lifetime (and still-unnamed) intergalactic adventure.“Picard’s mission ends up being exactly what she’s spent her entire life reading about, so they have the same goal in mind, and the possibility of it invites this woman to want to go on an adventure unlike anything she’s ever [been] on,” Pill teased.Stewart later emphasized that it’s the series’ ongoing ensemble work that remains his top priority while being top of the call sheet.“I looked on every aspect of The Next Generation as being ensemble-based, and in fact, that has been very much an indicator of where I was in my career — that the ensembles that I’d worked with, whether they were in theater or film or television, have always been to me like another character,” he said. “And so when we first met and talked in those early discussions, it was, my use of that word, the ensemble, the uniting of a group, because here we sit, I can only speak personally, but in love with all of these people on my left, and of course the people on the right. And that’s where the ensemble element comes from, and it’s very important.”There’s a New (Adorable) Number One, and He Has a Personal Significance to Stewart(Photo by Matt Kennedy/CBS)For those who watched the trailer, we’re introduced to Picard’s pet pitbull, named Number One. While the dog has been featured prominently in promotion of the CBS All Access series, little is known thus far of what role, exactly, the pup will be playing. But it wasn’t lost on the NYCC audience that Stewart has a real-world connection to pitbulls, working tirelessly in nonprofit initiatives and fostering and adopting the oft-misunderstood breed himself.With that in mind, Stewart revealed that when it became clear that Kurtzman was going to include a dog for Picard in this 10-episode journey, he pushed for it to be a pitbull to further destigmatize the breed onscreen.“Once the dog issue had been agreed upon, I did campaign proliferously for it to be a pitbull,” he said, noting the prominence of the now-famous dog from Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. “But what I didn’t know at the time was that Brad Pitt had gotten in there ahead of me, and there’s another pitbull now that’s become very famous in the last few weeks.”Kurtzman Wants Picard to Continue Star Trek’s Social Legacy(Photo by Trae Patton/CBS)The turn of phrase that Kurtzman likes best when discussing his slate of new Star Trek iterations is that he wants it to be reflective of the social and political state of today’s world.“Star Trek is a mirror that holds itself up to society,” Kurtzman said. And specifically pointing out the ways in which Star Trek: Picard will deal with its treatment of the defeated and refuge-seeking Romulans, he said that the series dives right into the muck of it. “We’re in a massive immigration metaphor right now in the middle of a massive immigration conversation, and we are very proud, I think, to say that we are diving head-first into that and to using Trek as a way of exploring it from all points of view.”Star Trek: Picard premieres January 23, 2020, on CBS All AccessLike this?

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

What happens when two of the funniest TV stars of their generation – one of them soon to be a Marvel superhero – get together for a movie adventure? Comedy gold, according to the critics. In The Lovebirds, Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani play a couple who get caught up in some major organized crime drama while on a night out on the town – think of it as Date Night with more edge, and more F-bombs, and currently a very Fresh Tomatometer score. Ahead of the movie’s release on Netflix on May 22, Rotten Tomatoes editor Jacqueline Coley sat down – at a compliant, safe, remote distance – with Rae and Nanjiani to talk about their wildest nights out, what they’ve discovered about themselves during quarantine, and to get the skinny on Marvel’s upcoming The Eternals. (Though given Nanjiani s transformation, skinny may not be the right word.)The Lovebirds is available on Netflix May 22, 2020.
亚博网站官方 (Photo by Ewurakua Dawson-Amoah)To the Girl That Looks Like Me is part of the Scene in Color Film Series, presented by Target, which shines a light on incredible filmmaking talent. As part of the series, three emerging filmmakers will receive mentorship from producer Will Packer, and their films are available to watch on Rotten Tomatoes, MovieClips Indie Channel, Peacock, and the NBC App.Ewurakua Dawson-Amoah’s lyrical short film To the Girl That Looks Like Me is an adaptation of one of the filmmaker’s poems – a piece of writing that had an unlikely inspiration: a picture of Kim Kardashian in “boxer braids” as part of an article about hot new looks.“I remember being so angry, because that was the exact hair style that I wore when I was going into school,” Dawson-Amoah says. “I would get teased for [it], people would call it ‘corn rows,’ like, ‘you have rows of corn, why does your hair look so weird?’ And now because a celebrity has it, it’s suddenly something that’s really cool.”The poem, and the film she would go onto make, takes that anger and creates something breathtakingly beautiful from it – and joyful: a celebration of Black women’s bodies, minds, and spirits. As Dawson-Amoah reads lines from her poem, we see Black women dancing, laughing, and moving confidently through striking spaces – a church, the woods – many of which have personal connections to the filmmaker.It is a singular viewing experience, a visual poem that’s both moving and incredibly insightful. “I wanted to combine my history, my culture, and my upbringing in this space to try to create a film that let other Black girls who might have had a similar experience growing up know that there’s a space for them in the industry – but also in the world,” Dawson-Amoah says. “Because a lot of us grow up thinking there’s not a space for us at the table.”See more shorts and meet more filmmakers from the Scene in Color Film Series.
