The spin-off stars Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham as their respectively titular characters from the Fast and the Furious series as they reluctantly team up to take on a superhuman villain played by Idris Elba. What ensues is less a F F movie than a silly superhero action movie, according to its first reviews. You mostly get what you expect, plus a standout Vanessa Kirby and surprise cameos, if you’re just interested in dumb popcorn fare.Here’s what critics are saying about Hobbs Shaw:How does it fit in the Fast Furious franchise?The spin-off film is nigh unrecognizable from the gritty low-level crime days of early Fast and Furious, and even the high-stakes heists of the more recent films.  Hoai-Tran Bui, SlashfilmToo sci-fi for the world of Fast Furious… the bionic stuff is anathema to the franchise’s core, meat-based values.  Richard Lawson, Vanity FairIt’s all a little sci-fi for the Fast Furious franchise, though it’s arguably no more ridiculous than launching parachute-sporting cars out of planes.  James Mottram, Total FilmIt’s a Fast Furious movie that doesn’t really care that it’s a part of the franchise.  Germain Lussier, io9What really stands out from this Fast movie is how little help it needs from the franchise for it to work.  Jason Guerrasio, Business InsiderDoes it meet expectations otherwise?It delivers some bangs and laughs for your buck.  Peter Bradshaw, GuardianIf you liked Johnson and Statham’s big jailbreak in Fate of the Furious and thought you’d want to see a whole movie of that duo, then you’re in luck. And it’s as awesome as you’d hoped. Edward Douglas, The BeatIt’s not going to change your life but if you are looking for a silly, over-the-top entertainment with very likable leads than there is more than enough to enjoy here. Rachel Wagner, RachelReviews.netI get it, you, the audience, have bought a ticket for the punches and perhaps the punchlines… But do we not deserve better? J. Don Birnam, Splash Report(Photo by Frank Masi / © Universal)How is the chemistry between Johnson and Statham?The back and forth banter between the two of them is hilariously written, and their deadpan delivery is incredible. Ashley Menzel, We Live EntertainmentHobbs Shaw is anchored by excellent comedic chemistry between Johnson and Statham, building on their dynamic from the previous film and ensuring laughs are in ample supply. Brent Hankins, The Lamplight ReviewJohnson and Statham do have great chemistry and comedically play off each other well. Robert Daniels, 812filmreviewsThe actors always feel like they’re trying to outdo each other. At times, that chemistry works well, but eventually it gets a little repetitive and numbing. Germain Lussier, io9Simultaneously the best and worst parts of the film are Hobbs and Shaw’s arguments… these scenes start to drag once they’ve been going on for over five minutes straight. Hoai-Tran Bui, SlashfilmIs Idris Elba a satisfying villain?Idris Elba as the evil Brixton Lorr is phenomenal. Ashley Menzel, We Live EntertainmentElba is truly savage throughout in a could’ve-been-Bond performance of action and brute force. Robert Daniels, 812filmreviewsElba allures through all that relentless cyborg glint, but he nonetheless feels like an unwelcome visitor from a different franchise. Richard Lawson, Vanity Fair(Photo by Daniel Smith / © Universal)Who really owns the movie?For all the hyper-male puffing, Hobbs Shaw is most memorable for the opportunities it gives to Vanessa Kirby. Donald Clarke, Irish TimesIt’s a pleasure to watch Kirby go from cigarette-addled Princess Margaret on The Crown to this commanding bit of action-heroing. Richard Lawson, Vanity FairI was particularly impressed with Kirby, who holds her own. Rachel Wagner, RachelReviews.netWhat I love about the character is that she doesn’t have to sit around and let the men fight for her… her fight scenes are amazing and prove her range as an actress. Ashley Menzel, We Live EntertainmentWhat s all this about cameos?Some of the film’s biggest laughs come courtesy of two scene-stealing cameos that we won’t spoil here. Brent Hankins, The Lamplight ReviewHas some great surprises for the audience with a few A+ cameos. Jason Guerrasio, Business InsiderThese cameos are a delight to stumble upon, and I would suggest you go in not knowing who you’ll see. It adds to the magic of the film. Ashley Menzel, We Live EntertainmentThe film gets weighed down by its self-indulgent excess and distracting cameos from the cast and crew’s best buddies. Hoai-Tran Bui, Slashfilm(Photo by © Universal)This is all that matters: How is the action?The action scenes are where Hobbs Shaw truly excels. Candice Frederick, The WrapThe action in the film is off the charts. Some scenes are sure to leave your jaw on the floor. Ashley Menzel, We Live EntertainmentBoasts a chase sequence — featuring a helicopter, a tow truck, and a group of souped-up hot rods — that’s absolutely bonkers. Brent Hankins, The Lamplight ReviewThe early action sequences are impressively choreographed but disappointingly limp, delivering none of the bombast that a Hobbs Shaw movie would promise. Hoai-Tran Bui, SlashfilmSomewhere around the midpoint of Hobbs Shaw, the action sequences become so elaborate that they start to weigh the movie down. Stephanie Zacharek, TimeIt’s only in the final third when the fight choreography gets a little too incoherent that you realize you don’t give a damn about anything that’s happening. Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.comIs Hobbs Shaw too cartoonish even for a Fast Furious movie?Hobbs Shaw checks all the boxes for the rousing, over-the-top ludicrousness you’d expect… [but it] tests the limits of that absurdity. Brian Truitt, USA TodayFrom motorcycles that transform and cars that twist in the air, to jumping off buildings and slow-motion fistfights, the whole movie is a cartoon. Germain Lussier, io9It’s basically a cartoon, a machismo-laden thrill ride that borders on parody and is, at times, unspeakably dumb, but in the best possible way. Brent Hankins, The Lamplight ReviewIn Fast   Furious, is there really such a thing as too much? James Mottram, Total Film(Photo by Daniel Smith / © Universal)What s really missing here?Without its own identity, without an interesting hook or resonant emotional through-line, most of the movie feels rather shallow — like it’s trying to impress us instead of engage us. Germain Lussier, io9One yearns for the old heart-to-hearts between Diesel and the late Paul Walker…Hobbs  Shaw forgets to maintain the balance of insanity and heart that makes the series special. Brian Truitt, USA TodayBut who needs Oscars anyway, right?When compared to, say, the last five movies to win best picture, there’s a sense that [it’s] doing more to advance film literacy — while bludgeoning all other aspects of our intellect in the process. Peter Debruge, Variety[The Fast Furious movies are] made solely for entertainment purposes, and for the most part, they always deliver. Hobbs Shaw is no exception. Edward Douglas, The BeatFast Furious Presents: Hobbs Shaw opens in theaters August 2, 2019.

One of the most anticipated family movies of the year – thanks to deep nostalgia and a killer marketing campaign – Pokémon: Detective Pikachu has turned out to be one of the more divisive releases in a long time – even as it sails clearly into Fresh territory. (It is currently ay 73% on the Tomatometer, with 33 reviews, as of May 3 at 10:20am.) Some fans love it, some don’t. Many newcomers are delighted, others aren’t. The first reviews of the movie have arrived, and nobody can seem to agree about the merits of the story, the visuals, the performances, or who it’s for. In a way, that’s exciting. Thrilling even (who wants everything so easily defined?). Now you can go and see it for yourself and find out where you land.Here’s what the critics are saying about Pokémon: Detective Pikachu:So, tell us: Has the video-game movie curse been broken?Did Detective Pikachu break the dreaded video game movie curse…? To borrow a phrase, it’s super effective. Dan Casey, Nerdist

Okja director Bong Joon-ho Enters the Race for the Palme d Or with ParasiteJoel MearesWednesday, May 22: Day 10 of the Cannes film festival was an all-the-café conversation focused on who will take home the top prize. Current Palme d’Or frontrunners Portrait of a Girl on Fire, Pain Glory, and Les Misérables got some new competition late Tuesday night with premiere of Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite (2019) 98%. The Korean director’s follow-up to 2016’s Okja is an instant critical darling that earned rapturous bursts of applause not just at the end of its critics’ screening, but also in the middle of it, according to Vulture. Jessica Kiang of Variety called Bong’s social thriller Roaringly furious, because [its] target is so deserving…Parasite is a tick fat with the bitter blood of class rage. With just one day of competition films left before the closing night ceremony, most of the pundits agree one of the favorites above will walk away with the top prize – well unless Tarantino can pull off a shocker with Once Upon A Time in Hollywood.No voice for Sharon Tate? Tarantino and Robbie push back.Wednesday, May 22: The buzz and spectacle of the Once Upon A Time in Hollywood premiere undoubtedly stole some attention away from Parasite’s impressive debut: two days after the fictionalized retelling of the Manson Family murders debuted, it s still dominating the festival headlines. Reports broke late on Tuesday night that hundreds of ticket holders were turned away from the premiere; as some had paid as much as ,200 to secure one ticket to the starry event, and many members of the press were among those turned away, the festival was forced to issue an apology for the mixup. Then Wednesday afternoon Tarantino continued to make headlines during a press conference when he rejected the hypothesis of a question that said Margot Robbie had limited dialogue portraying the Manson Family murder victim, Sharon Tate. The Aussie actress, however, was quick to counter the assumption saying,  I think the moments I was on screen gave a moment to honor Sharon, I think the tragedy was the loss of innocence. To show the wonderful sides of her could be done without speaking. I did feel like I got a lot of time to explore the character without dialogue, which is an interesting thing. Rarely do I get an opportunity to spend so much time on my own as a character. (Photo by Daniele Venturelli/WireImage)Once Upon A Time In Hollywood Gets Six-Minute Standing Ovation, But Tarantino Doesn t Want to Know the Tomatometer ScoreTuesday, May 21: The moment that all of Cannes – and just about everyone else – had been waiting for finally arrived on Monday night, when Quentin Tarantino premiered his ninth studio film, Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood (2019) 85%, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, and Margot Robbie. Before the curtains parted for the screening of the Hollywood drama that s loosely based on the Manson Family s murder of Sharon Tate and others, Cannes Film Festival director Thierry Frémaux reiterated (in English and French) Tarantino s plea to avoid spoilers when discussing the film. It s debatable if such precautions were needed, but as of yet, most critics are keeping the key plot points out of reviews. Angeleno Tarantino was six years old when the Manson Murders rocked Hollywood and the nation, and critics are calling Once Upon A Time in Hollywood a deeply personal and violent ode to the summer of 69. While 1960s Hollywood played out on the screen, today s Hollywood looked: Timothée Chalamet, Chloe Sevigny, Diego Luna, Xavier Dolan, Tilda Swinton, Dakota and Elle Fanning, Chris Tucker, and Adrien Brody were all spotted at the premiere. Tarantino s close friend and Grindhouse co-director Robert Rodriguez was also on hand to congratulate and celebrate with cast and crew and gave us his one-word review: Outstanding! After enjoying a six-minute standing ovation at the premiere, Pitt, DiCaprio, and Tarantino headed to a glitzy after-party at the JW Marriott joined by most of the star power on the Rivera. During the party, Tarantino chatted with guests about film, Cannes memories, and was in high spirits. When we caught up with him, we asked if he wanted to know the Tomatometer score for the film (which we had just revealed), and he quickly recoiled as if we were about to shout a spoiler to his film. Oh God, no! he said, laughing.  If they re bad I wanna enjoy my night, and if they re good, it s a gift. A gift I will happily unwrap – tomorrow. Tarantino Asks Viewers Not to Spoil the Hollywood EndgameMonday, May 20: Everyone is worried about spoilers these days – even legendary director Quentin Tarantino. After a script for The Hateful Eight leaked before production began, forcing the director to make significant changes, Tarantino is taking no chances with his latest film. Once Upon a Time... In Hollywood (2019) 85%, the A-lister–stuffed 60s period feature starring Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Margot Robbie, premieres Tuesday and has been shrouded in mystery. Little is known of the plot, save that it will feature numerous late 60 s icons such as Bruce Lee, Steve McQueen, Sharon Tate, and her infamous murderer Charles Manson. Speaking to Rotten Tomatoes to promote his film The Mustang earlier in the year, costar Bruce Dern said, “All I can say is — this is me telling you — he’s a magician, because in this movie, he did something mad. It’s probably the most unique endeavor I’ve seen a director undertake and do. Without ruining the movie for you — I can’t tell you what that is, but the minute you get to see it, you will say, ‘Bruce Dern is absolutely right. ” Hoping to keep the movie s surprises under wraps as long as possible, Tarantino posted an open letter asking those that see it first to be mindful of spoilers, adding, The cast and crew have worked so hard to create something original, and I only ask that everyone avoids revealing anything that would prevent later audiences from experiencing the film in the same way. Rotten Tomatoes has secured a coveted ticket to the glamorous premiere, so check back here on Tuesday for the first reviews and a detailed recounting of the star-studded premiere and afterparty.Check out Everything We Know About Once Upon a Time In Hollywood

(Photo by Phobymo /© Universal Pictures )M. Night Shyamalan moves on from his Eastrail 177 Trilogy, the grounded superhero saga that began with Unbreakable two decades ago and concluded with 2019 s Glass, with his latest theatrical release, Old, an original thriller that has M. Night Shyamalan written all over it.For starters, there s the high-concept conceit, drawn from the graphic novel Sandcastle: a set of vacationing families find themselves trapped on a secluded beach, mysteriously unable to leave, and soon discover they re aging at a rapid pace. (Among the first clues? A small child notices her pants are suddenly very tight.) Then there s the usual Shyamalan touches, beloved by so many fans, since he broke through with The Sixth Sense: a cast of incredible actors asked to play it straight in some seriously outlandish circumstances (Alex Wolff, Vicky Krieps, Gael García Bernal, among others); elegant and disorientating cinematography courtesy of frequent collaborator Mike Gioulakis; several WTF moments that will stick with you long after the credits roll; a cameo from the man himself; and maybe even a twist. (Don t worry, though, this is a spoiler-free zone.)And yet, despite some sense of familiarity, there are ways in which Old feels like nothing Night, as those who work with him know him, has ever done before – and not just because it wasn t shot in his hometown of Philadelphia. There s a go-for-broke spirit to the movie that s invigorating to witness, a quality that has increasingly infused his work since his time on the low-budget and critically acclaimed The Visit rejuvenated his passion for moviemaking.Speaking to Shyamalan a couple of week s before Old s theatrical release, we found him in a reflective mood, sharing with us that he feels more like the director who made The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable, when he was in his late 20s and early 30s, than he does feel like himself at 40, when he says he was playing it safe. When I was 20-something, those movies I was making, Unbreakable and things like that, I remember distinctly not caring about that, Shyamalan said. Now I m not all the way back there, but I feel closer to that, to the young version of me that way – as Old goes out, the provocative nature of it, its dissonant nature, is something I love. With his latest provocation about to stir up audiences, Shyamalan spoke to us about kicking safety to the curb – while also developing actual safety protocols for one of the first films shot during the COVID-19 pandemic – plus his embrace of gothic horror elements, the fear of aging, and why his movies need to be seen on the big screen.Joel Meares for Rotten Tomatoes: You’ve spoken in the past about limitations and how limitations can force creativity – and that was the case when it came to the budgets on The Visit and Split – and it rejuvenated your filmmaking in some ways. On this film, it seems you had so many limitations: You were shooting under COVID, you were under the pump on time, you were shooting in the jungle in the Dominican Republic. What was the biggest filmmaking challenge with Old and how did that lead to innovation and creativity for you?M. Night Shyamalan: I had a thought when you were talking just now that the reason that limitations cause this interesting reaction is, in many ways – and it s what the characters went through [in the movie] – you go to this thesis of, “What is most important?” It is the most important thing that bubbles up. I only have this much money, this much time: What are we trying to achieve? Well, I need to have her do this. I need to have this feeling about it. I definitely need this shot What s important bubbles up and really those are the things that you need and everything else you can throw out the window. It strips you almost of your nonsense, or the things that are not important, by creating limitations. And that s what happens to the characters in Old, obviously, when they re thinking about time speeding up so much.For me – maybe this is the way my mind works and maybe others are like this – you get clouded by more options. There are those studies, where if you give people four things to choose from, they re pretty clear, everybody s kind of in agreement about which one is the best, if it s a strawberry jam or whatever it is. But if you give them 20, everybody s confused about what s what, and you can t hold that much. So, limitations actually give you a sense of place and time and being able to know what your opinion is. I think a little bit of that happens for me, so I try to limit it as much as possible. All of these things that happen made me razor-sharp.(Photo by Phobymo /© Universal Pictures )Rotten Tomatoes: You shot this during the pandemic, and quite early on. Were COVID protocols a pressure that you had trouble with or did you roll with them? What was the impact on the production? Shyamalan: We were so early in this – we were the first ones shooting [during the pandemic] – that I was making up the COVID protocols. It was my protocols that we were going by; I became like some kind of medical sleuth or something. Luckily, a lot of my family s doctors, so I had some basis of how to do this. So I was just making up this protocol. And then when we were done, other productions asked us how we did this because we had zero cases on our production. But it was dogmatic. I knew some things about human nature: I ll never stop that crew member and that crew member from hooking up, I m never going to be able to stop that. In fact, the more I say, Don t hook up, they re going to hook up, right?So how can I create an environment where everyone can be humans and ask them to do things that are reasonable to keep us safe? I said, Here s the hotel, here s our crew. We re all staying here. You re allowed to go from here to the set and back. I ll bring you the food. I ll bring you the entertainment. Everyone is staying with us. The concierge is staying with us – everyone. Then have fun in between. Knock yourself out, but don t leave your [bubble]. Can you do this for 10 weeks? That was kind of the equation. Those were the protocols and it created a theater-camp quality to what we were doing that didn t feel like work anymore. It felt special and I want to feel that way always about making movies.(Photo by © Universal Pictures)Rotten Tomatoes: You mentioned earlier that the important stuff bubbles to the surface, and you spoke about particular shots you needed to get. This film feels in many ways like your most ambitious visually, I think, just in terms of the number of intense tracking shots and the almost Altman-esque moments where you’re picking up action and dialogue as the camera is swirling around the beach. Can you talk about the visual style of Old and your decision to really go with these extreme camera angles and approaches that are pretty disorienting?Shyamalan: Yeah. Thank you for noticing it. I think I really wanted to push the cinematography. The way we tell the story, that language is critical to the experience of it, the disorienting quality of what they were feeling on that beach, the kind of almost nightmare, the ghoulish nightmare, that they found themselves in. [We wanted to] replicate that with the emotions that are evoked from the choices of cinema. We were very much influenced by Australian New Wave movies: Walkabout, Picnic At Hanging Rock. It s funny you mentioned Altman, because he s always an influence for me and Mikey [Gioulakis, cinematographer] when we make movies. Whatever [the camera] catches, it catches it seemingly, it’s catching things on the periphery and the layers of conversation and all.As always, every shot is drawn out [first], but I got to make the movie multiple times in hand form before we shot. The pandemic didn t allow me to shoot when I wanted to shoot, but I had already been ready. So I kept on redrawing and thinking of this shot and this shot. So it was probably, I would say, since Sixth Sense, actually, the most time I spent on the shots before we went to shoot.(Photo by Phobymo /© Universal Pictures )Rotten Tomatoes: I know you ve mentioned before that you don t necessarily set out to make horror movies  per se, but I felt Old had elements – more than some of your other films – of horror, and body horror in particular. There are a few moments, without spoiling it, that we go maybe full Cronenberg-esque. How fun was it to create shocking body horror moments, which is something that I don t think you ve dabbled in quite as much as you do here?Shyamalan; No, I haven t. It s funny you should say that because, Cronenberg… it didn t strike me as that as much as, I don t know, the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark or something, or Poltergeist, where there are some Gothic elements at those moments of people melting or things like that, which I found as a child very, very evocative and my imagination, it went into another genre a little bit. I loved it tipping into Gothic horror for those moments that you re referencing, just touching it like that and then [coming] back to kind of a grounded place.Rotten Tomatoes: It certainly evokes a reaction in the audience! The movie deals with the ultimate fear for many people – and it s certainly the ultimate fear for Abbey Lee s character – aging. Is aging something that you think about consciously a lot? Shyamalan: I m strangely okay with aging. I don t go to my birthdays and feel like, Oh my God. Here we go. Okay. It s not like that, but I m fascinated with the way my mind is changing or my perception of my relationships and things is changing. It s definitely not the same as it was. I don t take in things the same way. I tried to reference that in the movie, that not only your body s changing, but you re taking in information in the world differently as you age.You were referencing Abbey s character, and for me she kind of represented a little bit of where society is going, the body image and [idea that] you re only valid because you re your own brand on Instagram. I m going to do this, I m going to filter this, and do this and do that stuff. Imagine somebody who was kind of a king at this, who was a goddess because of what she looked like, and then now on this beach it s going [away]: What bubbles up to her? What is important to her? What is important to her now that you know that [beauty] is going to get stripped from you and is of no value when time is moving this fast? So the character starts to think about other things.(Photo by Phobymo /© Universal Pictures )Rotten Tomatoes: The other question I had about aging is, how do you feel you ve changed as a director as you ve grown older? You re not an old man, of course, but you re certainly older than when you made The Sixth Sense.Shyamalan: I think I strangely feel closer to the way I was when I was late-20s and 30 now than I did when I was 40. At 40, I felt much more I wanted to be accepted. I wanted to be safe. I felt more value in finding stability and safety than in being a maverick or being like, Hey I m going to do this thing because I like it.” But when I was 20-something, those movies I was making, Unbreakable and things like that, I remember distinctly not caring about that. Now I m not all the way back there, but I feel closer to that, to the young version of me that way – as Old goes out, the provocative nature of it, its dissonant nature, is something I love.I think probably the difference now from that Unbreakable guy is that I know that that s what s going to resonate. I know it, no matter what happens in 10 days, I know that that s what s going to echo, that thing that s weird about it. Whereas the younger form of me, I felt almost ashamed of my instincts, that they were weird and different, and I was, Oh no, no, I ll do something that s easier to swallow. I remember me having that feeling like, God, those are your instincts, but people don t like that. Whereas now I m like, I know that that s the voice that they re going to remember. So there s a knowledge that came from time. So I hope I can continually risk and risk and risk and risk and not want to keep myself safe, which is what I felt when I was younger.(Photo by Phobymo /© Universal Pictures )Rotten Tomatoes: Last time we spoke, we were talking about your Apple TV+ series Servant, and you were saying that while that series is made for streaming, your movie projects are definitely intended for the big screen. And Old is coming out on the big screen – no streaming option. As we’re transitioning out of pandemic era, and everybody s watching the box office numbers, are you stressed about that at all? Also, it seems that genre films are the ones that are punching through with box office wins, like The Conjuring, A Quiet Place Part II. I wonder if you have any ideas as to why those are the kinds of films that are drawing audiences back to theaters, when others, say, aren t being as successful at this time.Shyamalan: I have two answers to that. So, first, the box office is absolutely fine. In fact, it s more buoyant and alive than ever. People want to be together. I don t buy for a second that the theater-going experience is damaged. Not for a second, no matter what corporation tells you that, complete lie. Complete lie. It is the best way to see a movie. Everyone wants to be in the best version of it. They want to experience it together. Now, there are certain genres that appeal more for that experience and one of them is when you re thrilled and you re scared. You want to see the gasps and experience it together. When you re alone and experiencing that, it feels almost bad. You want to be grabbing the person next to you or giggling because you got a scare. You want to share that experience; luckily, I m in a genre that leans towards that group experience even more.I have felt what you ve seen now, post-pandemic, is that the movies that are exclusively in the movie theater are doing extremely well and doing great. So I m very happy as we open up, the world s opening up, to come back and tell stories in the movie theater. That s my church. That s what I do for a living and the rest is a different type of experience; it s a great experience, but it s not the commitment that I m asking of you. You can t talk to your sister and make a taco. You can t do that.One of my friends was like, Oh, I love Servant. I saw that episode. It s fantastic. I was on the treadmill. I loved it. What? You watched it on the treadmill? I was like, Ah Old is in theaters from Friday July 23, 2021.On an Apple device? Follow Rotten Tomatoes on Apple News.

He Who Remains set the TVA in motion, but it was not Mobius M. Mobius (Owen Wilson). Instead, the person remaining is a 31st century scientist we know to be Nathaniel Richards (Jonathan Majors) — even if he never uses that name here — or better known across the internet the last six weeks as Kang the Conqueror.But is He Who Remains really Kang?For the moment, we ll take He Who Remains at his word. He is a more benevolent Nathaniel who took part in the Multiversal War against variants of himself from other realities and discovered the only way to end the chaos was to eliminate free will including his own. Perhaps not as mind-bendingly strange as the He Who Remains of the comics (perhaps Marvel is saving the notion of a survivor from a previous universe for Galactus), but still a pretty heady concept for those less familiar with the Big Cosmic Ideas 1970s superhero comics, philosophy texts, or really out there sci-fi novels.Also, we ll point out, the origin of the Multiversal War he describes to Loki and Sylvie (Sophia Di Martino) sure sounds like the origin of the Multiverse over at the crosstown rival. In the DC Universe, a scientist named Krona unleashed multiversal energy by using a time viewer to witness the birth of the universe, altering the fabric of reality forever.In He Who Remains case, though, the Crisis on Infinite Earths was a crisis of ego as the variant Nathaniel Richardses fought to dominate the Marvel Multiverse. It suggests Kang, when we meet him in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, will be distinct from He Who Remains. It also suggests Majors may end up playing several different versions on Nathaniel Richards during his time in the MCU. As He Who Remains mentions, the character (and his variants) goes by many names, including Rama-Tut, Kang the Conqueror, Immortus, Blue Totem, Victor Timely, Scarlet Centurion, and more. Also, as he shares a name with Reed Richards s father, there is always the possibility he will turn out to be his own ancestor.Then again, considering he presents himself to two Loki variants, can we take anything he said at face value? It is possible he is, indeed, the Nathaniel Richards who became Kang. Allowing the Lokis to proceed this far could be part of his plan to continue dominating reality. Or he s the one who became Immortus and this is part of a gambit to ultimately preserve his preferred timeline.As we also mentioned last week, it is possible for some viewers to see the Kang reveal as anticlimactic. He is not an established character in the context of the series — despite the relentless hinting — and the answer actually moves things away from Loki. We think that sensation would be far worse if the show was a limited series like WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, but now that season 2 is a definite thing, his debut has more of a season 1 finale flavor than it might have otherwise had, especially considering the last image before the credits.Where Is Judge Renslayer?(Photo by Marvel Studios)As we move into a Marvel Multiverse of variants, we re going to refer to the Ravonna Renslayer (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) we ve seen up until now as Judge Renslayer. Much like Nathaniel Richards, naming her variants is going to be important in order to keep things orderly.As we saw in the episode, Judge Renslayer seemingly escaped the coming calamity by leaving the TVA. Her stated motivation was to search for free will, but it is easy to interpret that as following order from He Who Remains. What file did Miss Minutes (Tara Strong) serve up to Judge Renslayer? Was it enough to make her question the TVA s stated purpose entirely or did it strengthen her resolve? Her conversation with Mobius suggests the latter, but considering how long the judge has kept her motivation close to her vest, anything is possible.Meanwhile, it is interesting to note that on He Who Remains preferred timeline, Ravonna Renslayer is the principal at Roosevelt High in 2018. As we re mentioned before, her comic book counterpart was a princess from the 40th century Kang tried his best to woo. She died admitting her affection for him and a variant of Kang went in search of a way to rescue her — leading to further variants of both characters. But if the Ravonna of the MCU is a 21st century Earth woman, will it lead to her meeting Kang under very different circumstances?Also, what sort of trouble could a high school principal get up to that a variant of her would end up near the top of the TVA s command structure? A puzzle for Quantumania to answer, perhaps?Or maybe the point of divergence is the very thing Judge Renslayer went to investigate. Determining why she was plucked away from the timeline may offer some clarity. Then again, that clarity all depends on whether or not she still follows He Who Remains. We re All Villains Here (Photo by Chuck Zlotnick/Marvel Studios)The central question of free will also plays out among the Lokis as Sylvie, seemingly, gives into her nature. At least, that s the way the show is framing it for the moment. Beyond confirming her bond with Loki is romantic — which, truth be told, we re not fond of — her actions here prove she is steadfast in her mission: kill the power behind the TVA.Following through on that suggests she has not grown over the course of the adventure. Instead of the expanded awareness Loki seems to have gained, she remained a prisoner of her predetermined role by killing He Who Remains. And, to be honest, that s a downer. Sylvie proved to be such a wonderful addition to the Marvel mix that we hate to see her ultimately fail (in more personal terms, anyway). We always expected one more betrayal before the season ended, but we never thought it would be her. Until it is resolved next season, it stands as something of a disappointment as it seems contrary to where the character was headed.(Photo by Marvel Studios)And, to be fair, the show also cast doubt on Loki s seeming empathy toward the timeline and the countless lives within it. He could still be trapped in his nature and thinking of the throne — he is still a Loki, after all. It is enough of a doubt to fuel the fight between Loki and Sylvie in terms of the narrative. Nevertheless, we are inclined to believe Loki has changed and his concerns have grown beyond his own immediate desires. The proof: He cares enough about Sylvie to want her to grow beyond vengeance.The show is called Loki, after all, his character development has to be paramount.It is interesting to note that He Who Remains tempts them twice: once with what they wanted before being trimmed from the timeline and then again with control of the Sacred Timeline itself. In the second case, he even frames it by reminding them (and us) that they are all villains. If nothing else, it sets up a new conflict for the second season as Loki and Sylvie will have to determine who the villain really is in this situation.Well, presuming Sylvie even remains at the Citadel at the End of Time. The Multiverse is open to her now and she could try to go home at long last.Or was this her supervillain origin all along?The Multiverse of Possibilities(Photo by © Columbia Pictures / © Marvel / courtesy Everett Collection)One odd thing to consider about Sylvie s killing blow: it means the Sacred Timeline has been undone back to its root. There has always been a Mutliverse now and it contains things like the Sony Spider-Man films, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s later seasons, and whole wealth of possibilities. Some of which will likely be explored next month when What If ? starts its run.But as the final scene suggests, the change will only be perceptible to Loki, Sylvie, and potentially, Judge Renslayer. Note how Hunter B-15 (Wunmi Mosaku) and Mobius fail to recognize Loki. The TVA has been utterly changed at its core — now owing its existence to either Kang or Immortus. From their point of view, Loki never arrived at the TVA for judgement and the TVA is operating more or less as it always has.At least, that s one possibility.The other: Kang s (or Immortus s) TVA employs more than one variant B-15 and Mobius in its ranks. The ones Loki knows are still up in the control room watching the timeline unravel.Either way, Loki is the only one who can perceive the fundamental shift in things at this point. And we re not just talking about Loki as a series. Out in the wider MCU (and Phase 4), no one is aware of the Multiversal War, Nathaniel Richards, or the existence of variants. Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) is still reading The Darkhold. Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie) is still getting used to being Captain America, and Natasha Romanoff (Scarlett Johansson) is still dead. It will be interesting to see if Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings or Eternals make any reference to the Multiverse in the coming months.(Photo by Marvel Studios)Granted, there s a definite point at which the events of Loki will come to light for a different set of characters: Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. And if the rumors about Spider-Man: No Way Home are true, Peter Parker (Tom Holland) may be the first to really experience what the death of He Who Remains means down at a street level.Which is the challenge for Marvel Studios going forward: making the timey-wimey happenings of Loki compatible with more straight-forward things like Secret Invasion or Hawkeye. Then again, one of the advantages of the studio s storytelling technique is that it can set up ideas like these and let them simmer for a project or four.Also, there is an interesting conflict buried under all of this: How can Loki stop Kang and still retain the possibility of free will? As we ve said all along, the problem of free will is unique for the MCU because the characters are, ultimately, beholden to the whims of studio president Kevin Feige. In a very real way, they are incapable of choice. As presented within the context of the story, Nathaniel Richards war is the ultimate result of free will and the Sacred Timeline is the best way to minimize suffering on a multiversal scale. But is becoming a prisoner to his nature the only workable solution?Maybe it won t be Loki s conflict to resolve in the end. Perhaps the only way to stop a Richards is with another Richards — one a bit more, well, fantastic.Loki season 2 is now available to stream in its entirety on Disney+.

When Gotham debuted in 2014, many were skeptical about a Batman show without Batman. Those already disinclined to enjoy it saw little appeal in its early episodes, which combined Burton-esque visuals and Batman Begins color palette into a Law Order-style police procedural. But the show weathered that storm — and its first year — to become a dependable slice of comic book television. With the series taking its final bow tonight, and introducing the Batman to its world at long last, we thought we’d take a look back at how the series found its footing and five of things it did right in the process.It Found A Remarkable Cast(Photo by Justin Stephens/Fox)Even in its roughest days, the series could boast Robin Lord Taylor, Cory Michael Smith, and a host of other actors as reasons to keep watching. Taylor, in particular, made the series’ conception of Oswald Cobblepot as a pathetic “umbrella boy” into something more than a stereotypical comic book villain. Through the years, Oswald evolved into a power player with a strange and wonderful love for his city. But Taylor always kept a little bit of the beaten-down Oswald around, allowing the scripts to make him both a menace and a joke — sometimes within the same scene.Even its choices for guest characters proved the show could be a magnet for great talent. Alexander Siddig and B.D. Wong proved to be great additions as Ra’s Al Ghul and Hugo Strange. That s not to mention Crystal Reed as the scheming Sofia Falcone, Jessica Lucas’ long-term stay as Tabitha Galavan, and Anthony Carrigan’s take on Victor Zsasz: a darkly comic and compelling interpretation of the often-one note Batman serial killer.Oh, and we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention Jada Pinkett Smith’s contributions to the show as Fish Mooney or Drew Powell as Butch Gilzean, a man who bounced from mob boss to mob boss before becoming a compelling take on DC Comics’s Solomon Grundy.But all of those criminals and villains were able to soar thanks to the show s backbone: a cast of heroes led by Ben McKenzie. Without the (mostly) upright Jim Gordon, Gotham would’ve floundered as it tried to find itself. And from the moment he was announced, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock proved to be the casting choice even the most skeptical fan could point to and say “they got that one right.” Sean Pertwee’s Alfred soon proved to be one of the most compassionate versions of the butler ever filmed, David Mazouz carved out a place for the young Bruce Wayne, and it is hard to think of Camren Bicondova’s Selina Kyle as anything less than a heroic presence — even if the character tried to break out of that perception.Without the core ensemble and the choicest of guest performers, the show could never have pulled off its pivot from Batman-themed procedural to the Gotham its viewers came to love.It Embraced Mania(Photo by FOX)It became clear toward the middle of the first season that the show was most comfortable embracing the mania of its Batman characters. Oswald’s shouting, Fish Mooney going big to balance out the contained John Doman as Carmine Falcone, and even that early idea about the Red Hood infecting its wearer with a homicidal megalomania suggested where the series would go in its subsequent years. By season 3, Gotham gleefully embraced its wilder impulses.Ed’s (Smith) battle with his Riddler persona accelerated. Oswald relished his newfound leadership role in the city’s underworld, and characters like Theo Galavan (James Frain) debuted. The plots rose to match the archness of the characters. Arkham became a key location as the Order of St. Dumas, The Court of Owls, and the League of Shadows all made their plays for the city. And in each storyline, characters would reach for the rafters and do things other shows — even superhero shows — could never pull off for fear of the camp edge.Let’s consider Butch’s evolution as an example: Solomon Grundy is one of those characters you just don’t expect to see in live action. Arrow flirted with the character in its early days by featuring a version of Cyrus Gold — Grundy’s human name — but soon left it behind for a greater focus on Deathstroke (Manu Bennett). But Gotham delivered the often put-upon and generally loyal Butch into a place where his transformation makes sense. The runoff from Indian Hill serves as well as the mystical energies in Gotham’s Slaughter Swamp. In doing so, it gave Butch an in-world justification for a quasi-zombie resurrection. It led to some pretty arch things, like Tabitha pummeling the sense back into Butch. But it also continued the unexpected thread between the two of them and fueled more of the show s operatic energy when Oswald finally put him down.Then there’s the Valeskas. Though the series toyed with our expectations in regards to Jerome’s (Cameron Monaghan) destiny from carny to killer, he proved to be a delightfully unhinged prototype Joker. The arrival of his brother Jeremiah (also Monaghan) only reinforced the need for characters and performances as large and sometimes silly as the ones employed on Gotham. Once the producers knew this was the right note, it all felt consistent.It Revitalized Barbara Kean(Photo by Barbara Nitke/FOX)If you only had the first handful of episodes of Gotham to go on, you’d expect Barbara Kean (Erin Richards) to be the first character cut from the show — yeah, even sooner than Rene Montoya (Victoria Cartagena) and Crispus Allen (Andrew Stewart Jones). But the series performed a magic trick with the character, breathing a wild, wonderful life into her.Introduced as Jim’s buttoned-down, high society love interest, Barbara diverged from Jim s world diverged soon after he proposed to her. After Jason Skolimiski (Milo Ventimiglia), a serial killer known as the Ogre, brainwashed her into killing her own parents, a long-buried madness awoke in Barbara. That change to the character would sustain her for the next four seasons.She re-emerged in the second season as an unhinged x-factor, a potential proto-Harley Quinn in Theo Galavan’s Maniax (a quasi-Suicide Squad). She eventually found a stronger ally in Theo’s sister Tabitha (even though she killed Barbara that one time) and Selina. Ra’s Al Ghul resurrected her and chose her as his successor for a time, but it all went badly. That misadventure still ended with Barbara killing the Demon and ordering the deaths of every male League member. She became a territorial leader during No Man’s Land and still managed to fulfill a role given to her from comic book lore: becoming Batgirl’s mother.Through it all, the character brought a certain camp energy to the show, making her a delight to watch. Ra’s Al Ghul may have been correct in his assessment — no one in Gotham City likes her — but we loved her. We loved her enough, in fact, that we always wanted to see her get her comeuppance, but also sighed with relief every time she stayed the hand of death itself.It Made Leslie Thompkins A Marquee Character(Photo by Jeff Neumann/FOX)First debuting in 1976’s Detective Comics #457, Dr. Leslie Thompkins was introduced as a family friend who comforted young Bruce on the night his parents were murdered and as a defender of the less-fortunate kids living near Crime Alley. Across the decades, she would become one of Batman’s confidants, but almost always a special guest character. She might matter for a storyline — like the time she faked Stephanie Brown’s death to prove a point to Batman — but she generally drifted back to Crime Alley (or Africa), out of sight and out of mind from the reader.But Leslie proved to be a character ripe for the Gotham treatment. First appearing as a guest character (played by Morena Baccarin) halfway through the first season, the almost immediate flirtation with Jim Gordon — and their ability to work well on cases together — proved too irresistible for the producers to ignore. She was a regular character from the second season onward, even when sensibility or death itself would suggest it was time to leave Gotham. And where Barbara’s path through town was a straight line, Lee’s (as the series would dub her) path proved to be a rubber band.At first as caring and altruistic as her comic book counterpart s initial appearances, an arrogant streak emerged when she married into the Falcone crime family. Things only got worse when Jim killed her husband, Mario, in self-defense. But in infecting herself with the Alice Tetch Virus, she learned a truth that led her out of Gotham a second time (she first left after Jim was sentenced to life in prison and she miscarried their child). She soon returned to run a clinic in the Narrows (more shades of her comic book counterpart), where she eventually became its benevolent leader and started a relationships with Ed. It led to their deaths, but they both got better thanks to Nyssa Al Ghul (Jaime Murray) and her plans for the No Man’s Land Gotham. In the end, she married Jim.The series took the handful of ideas about Leslie Thompkins spread across 30 years of comics and made them a fantastic, soapy saga of one woman denying her heart. Sure, a lot of people had to die before she would accept Jim’s marriage proposal, but this is Gotham after all, where crime lords get to have happy endings.It is also the sort of show in which Lee could wheel an in-labor Barbara down a disused hospital corridor while Barbara shoots a bunch of goons in the face, leading to the two characters finally bonding after almost five full years of tension.It Tested The Nobility of Jim Gordon(Photo by FOX)In designing a Batman show without Batman, Gotham looked to Jim Gordon to fill the hero role. And on television, heroes get their convictions tested on the regular. Where Batman can out-muscle and out-think any threat to his worldview, Jim can only take those punches and weather t

(Photo by Katie Yu/The CW)Even superheros who battle impossibly powerful villains on a regular basis need to slow down every now and then, especially around the December holidays. That s why, beginning with Wonder Woman in the mid-1970s, superhero shows on television have a longstanding of tradition of celebrating the season with Christmas episodes.We ve compiled a list of our five favorite superhero Christmas episodes. These installments can revolve around Yuletide cheer, or simply provide a festive backdrop for general superhero action. We happen to think they are the best overall, but opinions can and will diverge. For instance: you may notice all but one of the episodes we love are from shows based on DC Comics characters. As it happens, those superhero shows put more of an emphasis on Christmas with only the animated Guardians of the Galaxy series and Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. representing the notion of a Marvel holiday season. Considering the trouble characters like Daredevil (Charlie Cox) and Dagger (Olivia Holt) get up to on their programs (Marvel s Daredevil and Marvel s Cloak Dagger, respectively), it is probably no accident they never stop to dress a Christmas tree.With that out of the way, here are our five picks for the best superhero Christmas episodes ever.5. Smallville 78% — “Lexmas”(Photo by Warner Bros./Courtesy Everett Collection)Television shows often lean on one of three stories for their Christmas episode inspirations: O. Henry’s “The Gift of the Magi,” Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, and Frank Capra’s It’s A Wonderful Life. In Smallville’s fifth season, it chose to mix up the latter two and give Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum) the life he always wanted.After getting shot in the back, Lex awakens to find himself in a world where he gave up the Luthor ambitions — and wealth — for a happily ever after. Seven years later, he’s married to Lana Lang (Kristin Kreuk) and good friends with both Clark and Jonathan Kent (Tom Welling and John Schneider). He also has a son, with another child on the way. An image of his mother tells him this can all be his if he makes the right decision. Back in the real world, Lex’s father Lionel (John Glover) volunteers him for a dangerous operation to preserve his ability to walk. It s successful, but it ruptures the sanctity of Lex s dream state, leaving his Dream Lana dead after she gives birth to their daughter. Traumatized by watching another person he loves die, Lex devotes himself to the way of power.The episode, while also serving as a play on the Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons Superman story “For the Man who has Everything,” uses It’s A Wonderful Life and A Christmas Carol in the most twisted and wonderful way. The lights in Lex s Christmas future are omnipresent and just too bright, giving that dreamland a sickly sweetness despite Lex s fondest wish to be a man more like Clark. In the end, he learns the wrong lesson — or perhaps the right one if you are a Luthor — and awakens from his post-shooting trauma denying his desire to be a good man. It s a surprisingly dark Christmas story counterpointed by Clark s weird encounter with a drunken Santa (Kenneth Welsh) who believes the Christmas spirit has been lost. Lex would certainly agree with that sentiment.4. The Flash 89% – “The Man in the Yellow Suit”(Photo by Jack Rowand/The CW)The Flash made it a tradition to counter the Christmas season with dark developments in its ongoing plotlines, but the concept never worked as well as it did during the show s first-season Christmas episode. Dr. Caitlin Snow (Danielle Panabaker) spots her presumed-dead fiancee, Ronnie Raymond (Robbie Amell), wandering the streets. It is also the first anniversary of the accelerator explosion, which seemingly has Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh) down in the dumps when Barry (Grant Gustin) races to the lab full of Christmas cheer.The most important aspect of the episode is, of course, Team Flash’s first confrontation with the Reverse-Flash. Lured into a trap by Wells and Cisco (Carlos Valdes), the titular Man in the Yellow Suit exudes a rare menace he will not have again until he kills Cisco in an alternate timeline. And while cornered, his dialogue proves him to be the most worthy of the Flash s speedster foes. Then there comes the moment when he escapes, kills the anti-Flash task force, and yet spares Eddie Thawne (Rick Cosnett), suggesting for a moment that Eddie may be under the mask.The sequence was genuinely thrilling the night it aired and continues to possess the kind of power and confidence the show often tries to reclaim, whether in big character reveals or Barry’s first confrontation with each season-long big bad. But none of the subsequent episodes contain a scene quite like the moment Wells reveals himself as the Reverse-Flash by offering the audience at home a terrifying “Merry Christmas” wish. The episode may not revolve around Christmas, but it uses the trappings of the season to give this key Flash character a proper introduction.3. The Tick  – “The Tick Loves Santa”(Photo by 20th Century Fox Film Corp./Courtesy Everett Collection)High on the Christmas spirit, the Tick (Townsend Coleman) mistakes a lowly hood (Jim Cummings) for jolly old St. Nick. When our hero interferes with the cops’ pursuit, the bank robber ends up electrocuted on a neon sign — leaving Arthur (Rob Paulsen) to explain to the Tick that there is, in fact, no Santa. The hood later awakens with a new ability to make duplicates of himself, and continues his crime spree with a new gang of Santa Clones. They inevitably interrupt the superhero community’s night of Christmas caroling, but the Tick finds he cannot fight any of the rogue Santas. He is admonished for his continued belief in Santa and almost comes to doubt Kris Kringle s existence when Santa’s Little Secret Service appear at the Tick and Arthur s apartment to prepare them for Santa’s arrival. He attempts to convince the Tick that it is okay to hit the false Santas in this particular instance.Like many of The Tick’s best episodes in its animated run from 1994 to 1996, the madness inherent in Coleman’s voice keeps the story electric. Serving as contrast, though, are Cummings’ no-nonsense Multiple Santas and a pair of deadpan security guards who openly question their holiday malaise while The City becomes the Santa Clones’ toy box. And just when you think the story is going in a conventional direction with the Tick learning the sad truth of St. Nicholas, the real Santa appears to offer gifts and serve as a hilarious deus ex machina. It all culminates with the Tick’s improbable Christmas speech, with Arthur joining in the madness as both have visions of sugarplums dancing around their heads.2. DC's Legends of Tomorrow 89% – “Beebo the God of War”(Photo by Dean Buscher/The CW)Still smarting from their recent losses, the Legends find a new time anomaly to keep their minds of their grief. They arrive in 1000 A.D. Newfoundland, where Leif Erikson (Thor Knai) and his sister Freydis Eriksdottir (Katia Winter) have made landfall. In the original history, Leif s convention to Christanity led to his group going back to Greenland. But in the altered timeline, the Erik siblings remained and conquered all of what would become New Valhalla — all thanks to the new god Freydis discovered just before the Yuletide: Cuddle Me Beebo, the number one holiday gift in 1992.When Legends finally catch up to the anomaly, they discover the Beebo doll was in the possession of the younger Dr. Martin Stein (Graeme McComb), whose 2017 self recently died in their timeline. Once they free the younger Stein, they discover Christmas is no more. It has been replaced with Beebo Day, and their attempts to fix the timeline only make things worse.Coming off the “Crisis on Earth-X” crossover with Supergirl, The Flash, and Arrow, the team faced their most serious blow in the loss of Victor Garber’s Stein and the impending departure of Franz Drameh as Jefferson Jackson, the other half of Firestorm. Understanding this, Legends secured the brief return of original cast member Wentworth Miller (as the Earth-X Leonard Snart) and for the silliest episode of the series to that point. It proved to be a defining episode for the show, as it couched the the characters trauma in a patently ridiculous predicament, tried tricks like Sara s (Caity Lotz) multiple plans for getting Beebo back from Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough), and offered an early indication that Ava Sharpe (Jes Macallan) would be a permanent fixture.And then there s Beebo. The throwaway parody of hot Christmas toys like Teddy Ruxpin, Tickle Me Elmo, and Furby proved to strike a chord with fans — many of whom are still waiting for official Beebo merchandise.1. Justice League 95% – “Comfort and Joy”(Photo by Warner Bros./Courtesy Everett Collection)After saving a planet of crab-like aliens from certain destruction, the League takes a holiday recess. John Stewart (Phil LaMarr) convinces Shayera Hol (Maria Canals) to enjoy the snow on a nearby winter planet, but she suggests a subsequent celebration. The Flash’s (Michael Rosenbaum) plans to deliver a rapping and farting toy called Rubber Ducky to a group of orphans gets waylayed by the Ultra-Humanite (Ian Buchanan). Superman (George Newbern) convinces J’onn (Carl Lumbly) to come home with him to the Kent farm, where he observes Christmas in Smallville.As the Flash says late in the episode, it’s “kinda cheesy,” but it is also Justice League’s most experimental episode. While the rest of the series was built around two-part tales of high stakes action, “Comfort and Joy” is a single episode with no central villain or conflict. Even Wally’s tussle with the Ultra-Humanite is more of a joke that leads to an emotional end.Instead, the entire episode revolves around the characters as they navigate the holiday. J’onn silently confronts his isolation even as he discovers the magic of sandwich cookies — an in-joke from the Justice League International comic book — while Clark turns into a kid again with his insistence that Santa wrapped his presents in lead-lined paper. John enjoys the snow, while Shayera figures out a completely different way of expressing a similar joy. Then there’s Flash’s Christmas spirit speech, which inspires the Ultra-Humanite to fix the Rubber Ducky toy he destroyed. It should be as cheesy as the aluminum Christmas tree he gives the criminal genius when he returns him to prison, but the situation is just so absurd that it works.Of course, the whole thing is aided by top-notch vocal talent, like Buchanan’s erudite take on the Ultra-Humanite and Lumbly’s definitive performance as J’onn J’onzz. His curious Martian song reminds you that this is still Justice League, even if it is taking a holiday pause. It is heartfelt and kind of corny, but its dedication to the characters makes for a magical 21 minutes of heroes at the holidays. Sometimes it’s the way Netflix’s Maid shows, and doesn’t tell, that makes its message so strong.This could be the way lead Alex (Margaret Qualley) doesn’t balk at taking a job as a housekeeper, but also almost involuntarily pulls her hair back in a neat braid that suggests this is a person who struggles to put on a façade of order in her chaotic life. Or its simple character details like the facts that her friend Danielle (Aimee Carrero), whom she meets while they’re living at a women’s shelter, came to own a Lexus and is a master of the subtle art of dog kidnapping.Even the show’s very title says so much while simply being four little letters.(Photo by Ricardo Hubbs / Netflix)Maid, which is created by Molly Smith Metzler and counts Margot Robbie and Shameless and ER’s John Wells as executive producers, is inspired by author Stephanie Land’s memoir, Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother s Will to Survive. Qualley’s Alex is a newly single mom desperate to end the roller coaster of emotional abuse she’s subjected to by her boyfriend Sean (Nick Robinson) as she attempts to secure custody of their daughter Maddy (Rylea Nevaeh Whittet) and find steady employment and housing after years of him controlling their finances.“Alex’s experience happens to Alex,” Metzler told Rotten Tomatoes recently. “But it also happens to [other] men and women — every color, every geography. We all know an Alex or we all know someone going through this experience and not telling us what they’re going through.”The topic of emotional abuse may be a hot-button issue in the news, but it’s not something that “is accurately portrayed on screen very much,” she said.“We see the bruises; we see the punches. What we don’t see is the corrosive, slow, violent denegation of self. It was very important for me to capture that on screen and to make you go through it as an audience member,” she said.(Photo by Netflix)But there is especially one unique thing about Alex’s character in this limited series, according to Qualley: “The thing that was most appealing to me from the beginning was the mother-daughter relationships in the story.”Qualley, who will be familiar to viewers as Pussycat in 2019 Quentin Tarantino film Once Upon a Time In Hollywood and from her portrayal as Ann Reinking in FX series Fosse/Verdon, doesn’t just mean Alex’s relationship with her young daughter, but also the trust the actress had to build in real life with costar Whittet through Sunday play dates and cooking breakfast to help make their bond look believable.“I think subconsciously, everyone gives you a certain amount of permission to make fun of them or to hug them a certain way; we re all sending signals all the time. And with [Rylea], I had to make sure that she would grab me the way that she would grab her mom or that I could like hold her upside down and she d feel great about it,” Qualley explained.The series also explores Alex’s relationship with her own mother Paula, played by Qualley’s real-life mom Andie MacDowell in the miniseries. As the production began to film during quarantine, Qualley put her mom up for the job.“Selfishly, it was also nice to have her around making soup and bringing baked goods to set,” Qualley confessed.(Photo by Ricardo Hubbs / Netflix)She also knew that MacDowell could bring something to the character that not every actress could; Paula is undiagnosed bipolar, and MacDowell’s own mother was diagnosed with schizophrenia soon after the actress was born. While those disorders are not the same thing, MacDowell said she recognized the behavior of Paula self-medicating with marijuana because MacDowell s mother did that with alcohol.MacDowell was also interested in portraying a character who sought validation through men’s approval — something that would definitely have had an impact on her Alex’s choice in partners.“Paula has a deep sense of insecurity without a man, and I have known women that feel like that even if they don t take it as far as Paula does,” MacDowell said. “But there are a lot of women out there who do not feel good without a man. They need a man to feel fulfilled.”Playing Paula meant finding “the lustiness in her body,” MacDowell said, as well as experimenting with push-up bras and “hard, rock  roll boots.”The character also brought on a challenge for Metzler as a writer because Paula, like a lot of other characters in the show, is not explored deeply in the book. Land used pseudonyms for her clients in the book, as she often cleaned their houses when they weren’t home and imagined what their lives were like. Anika Noni Rose’s Regina, a workaholic who uses her beautiful house and clothes to hide her own pain of infertility and worries about her marriage, is an amalgamation of a woman known as the cigarette lady in Land’s story.(Photo by Ricardo Hubbs / Netflix)“There’s this freedom that comes with working from nonfiction because you don’t work for the book, you work for the audience,” the series creator said. “And your job isn’t to convey the information in the book. Your job is to create a riveting story that won’t feel like you’re being educated but you secretly are at the end.”This brings us back to the question of the title. It’s attention-grabbing, for sure. But is it derogatory to call someone a “maid” or is it just impolite?Metzler said the show and Netflix worked with the National Domestic Workers Alliance and that “the preferred term is cleaning service or sometimes cleaning lady. But ‘maid’ has actually become an insult in a way.”“One of the things I asked Stephanie early on was if that was why you named it Maid. And she said yes, because it’s derogatory,” Metzler explained.Maid premieres on Friday, October 1 on Netflix. On an Apple device? Follow Rotten Tomatoes on Apple News.


Dark Phoenix brings the current X-Men saga to a close, but according to critics, the film ends the franchise with more of a whimper than a bang. Despite its stellar cast, the involvement of longtime franchise writer/producer Simon Kinberg (who makes his directorial debut here), and an iconic storyline taken straight from the comics, the would-be blockbuster only managed a 23% on the Tomatometer and failed to win its opening weekend at the box office, falling second to the animated sequel The Secret Life of Pets 2 by almost million.But what did average moviegoers think of the movie? Dark Phoenix currently sports an Audience Score of 64% that s more than 40 points higher than the Tomatometer score so we decided to comb through the user reviews to get a sense of why the film resonated more with regular moviegoers than the critics. As we ve found with other films, it really came down to audiences being more forgiving of some of the film s flaws. Were there those who outright loved the movie? Absolutely, but there was a wide range of opinions offered, and we ve collected some of them below. Check out the user reviews of Dark Phoenix and let us know what you thought of the film, and these reviews, in the comments. (Note, some of the reviews have been slightly edited for length and grammar/spelling.)(Photo by Doane Gregory/20th Century Fox)How is the writing?Horrible writing It felt like the writers of this movie knew nothing about the characters besides maybe what had come before from the Fox X-Men universe. Nate 4, 0.5 starsNot as bad as people are making it out to be. It is watchable. It is, however, very cheesy, and there is not really a solid plot/storyline to drive the movie forward. It was kind of sloppily done. Bianca F., 2.5 starsHave always been a huge fan of the X-Men. However, this felt rushed, like trying to tie up ends. The premise was great and the material was there, but the delivery was all over the place. Michelle, 3 starsLiked the effects. Disliked the departure from the original storyline. No character development.– Al-kareem T., 3 StarsNot too complicated of a story. R, 4 starsWhat about the acting?People keep saying this movie is unwatchable and terrible. IDK what those people are watching, but I was glued to the screen the whole time. Yes it has its problems like any movie but I enjoyed it. Sophie did a good job! Carlos, 3 starsIt s just not the same since Wolverine is not in it any more, and I wasn t really crazy about what happened to Raven. I m still a big fan of Michael Fassbender, who played Magneto. If it weren t for him, the X-Men would just completely suck. Northside Movie Critic, 3 starsThe movie wasn t perfect, but it isn t entirely bad. Sophie Turner, Michael Fassbender, and James McAvoy lift this movie, which suffers from very minimal action sequences. Uma M., 3.5 starsSophie Turner dazzled as both hero and villain in this powerful finale to the X-men series. This movie had the best character development, and Jessica Chastain was very well played as a mysterious villain. Jaylon, 4.5 starsI have no clue what all the hate is about. I loved this film. The tone, the VFX, and the score were all breathtaking. McAvoy and Turner stoke the show with astounding performances. 10/10 would watch again. Rodger C., 5 stars(Photo by 20th Century Fox)How is it as an adaptation of the Dark Phoenix Saga?Somehow Fox managed to make a worse Phoenix movie than X-Men: The Last Stand. Nate 4, 0.5 starsWas hoping this movie would stay more true to the comic. Well, sort of? Charles, 2 starsI just don’t think anyone has figured out how to tell the Dark Phoenix story adequately yet. Adam E., 3.5 starsIt s not ANYWHERE NEAR as bad as I was afraid it would be or the critic reviews are saying it is. That doesn t mean it s amazing, though. It does have its problems if it s trying to be THE Dark Phoenix Movie, but it never could have been with the underdeveloped characters they were working with. At least I didn t walk out saying, I can t believe The Last Stand was the GOOD Phoenix movie. It s missing some very crucial aspects of the Phoenix Saga that made it great that significantly disappoints, particularly in the third act. Very sad it s not the Phoenix movie I ve desperately wanted since I was a kid. Darknight Crawler, 4.5 starsHow are the visuals and action sequences?The makeup work on mystique looked even worse than in Apocalypse. The CGI looked like something that would have impressed if this came out in the early 2000s. Nate 4, 0.5 starsLoved the fight scenes. It needed more refinement and lacked the finesse of The Avengers. Loved the traditional power hand gestures. Very indicative of mutant powers. Xavier, 2.5 starsCasual moviegoers or those with extra cash will enjoy this. A very decent film with great visuals and special effects. Rohit S., 3 starsHow can you have an X-Men movie and not put the mind-blowing mutant powers on display? That was my only concern. Thanks to the extensive re-shoots, the train sequence has become the best battle in the entire X-Men film series. Uma M., 3.5 stars(Photo by 20th Century Fox)How does it compare to the other X-Men movies?X-Men: Apocalypse wasn t very good. This one was worse. So many deviations, it was ridiculous. James R., 2 starsIt’s better than The Last Stand and Apocalypse. Carlos, 3 starsNot a bad film, but not a good one either. If you were expecting it to be like Avengers, Venom, or like even previous X-Men films, it’s not the same. But it’s not a bad X-Men film, and if you really wanted to see it, or you’re a big X-Men fan, I think you’ll like it. Rohit S., 3 starsIt s not the best X-Men movie, but I think it s a step up from the previous one, and it was enjoyable, even though it felt a bit rushed towards the end. Daniel M., 4 starsBest of X-Men series in a while. Great story and action. Phoenix Rises, 4 starsThe reviews are totally wrong about this one. This was a massive improvement compared to The Last Stand. Jaylon, 4.5 starsIs it a fitting end to the franchise?Sad ending to this franchise. Maybe Disney will do better. Charles, 2 starsFox had an opportunity to let us say goodbye to these characters before the Disney/Fox merger. Instead of a Logan-type ending, we were left with nothing really changing in this world, just like a typical superhero movie. Ryan K., 2.5 starsNot the worst X-Men movie, but not the best way to end the first true superhero movie franchise. Erick, 3.5 starsI do recommend seeing this in theaters, if only because it s a decent enough goodbye to the X-Men franchise we ve known for 19 years and a glimpse of what Marvel will be doing again in, say, 12 years?
