夺金宝采用百度引擎1（Baidu 1）(Photo by Touchstone/courtesy Everett Collection)All Wes Anderson Movies, Ranked By TomatometerTexas played its part in the revolution of 90s American independent cinema. Dazed and Confused put Richard Linklater and Austin on the map. John Sayles made his most thrilling movie there, the neo-Western Lone Star. And emerging from Houston with an offbeat crime-caper was Wes Anderson. Bottle Rocket fizzled at the box office, but it was a crucial calling card for the director and his band of collaborators, like actors Owen and Luke Wilson, and cinematographer Robert Yeoman. And when Martin Scorsese compares your debut to the likes of McCarey and Renoir, you re probably gonna get another chance in the industry. Bill Murray signing up for Anderson s second feature, Rushmore, elevated the movie s stature and release, and introduced Bill s re-invention as the Melancholy Murray.Bottle Rocket and Rushmore s growing reputations, and Anderson s own as a modern auteur, generated significant hype for his third film, The Royal Tenenbaums. With its star-studded ensemble cast, the multigenerational comedy-epic would be Anderson s highest box office earner until Grand Budapest Hotel, and got him into the Academy s good graces with a Best Screenplay Oscar nomination. Tenenbaums also represents the point Anderson took total command of his craft: Whereas his quirky sensibilities and measured shot compositions enhanced the real-world settings of his first two films, from Tenebaums on that quirk would represent all points of reality in his work. Watching an Anderson movie means escaping into a medley of ornate sets, clean lines and angles, impeccable blocking, precisely-picked pop music, and curious dialogue and action.That was certainly the case for next feature The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou, where Anderson was gifted million and carte blanche to shoot whatever he wanted. Which, of course, meant building your own ship, shooting on choppy sea waters and at the famed Cinecittà Studios in Rome, and hiring Henry Selick to animate seahorses. Life Aquatic bombed at the box office and critics were iffy on the slack pacing, but audiences have since boosted up Steve as fashion icon and man of action whilst mired in Millennial malaise.The Darjeeling Limited is mostly a minor entry, bordering on self-parody as his style continued to wallop character and story. When it was announced Anderson s next project would be a stop-motion animated movie based on a Roald Dahl story, it was almost too perfectly, eye-rollingly twee. But like knocking out the cedar stick at Whackbat, Fantastic Mr. Fox was a jubilant, all-ages success. Anderson stayed young at heart with Moonrise Kingdom, an intimate adventure of first love and organized scouting, which drew the best reviews of his career and his first significant grosser in a decade.That would all be topped with his arguable masterpiece, The Grand Budapest Hotel, a dizzying trip through alternate history, meta-fiction, shootouts, and Renaissance paintings, and one very pretty building. It earned Anderson another Best Screenplay Oscar nomination, his first nomination for Best Director, and the film won for Original Score, Editing, Production, and Costume. After four years, his longest gap between films, he put out another stop-motion film, the dystopian, Japan-set Isle of Dogs, which was nominated for Best Animated Feature.His latest film, The French Dispatch, opens in October this year. In anticipation, we look back on all Wes Anderson movies ranked by Tomatometer!
So far critics are responding positively to the show s more adult take on superheroes. But will Doom Patrol: Season 1 (2019) 96% stay Fresh as its premiere approaches and reviews rack up? It s looking good so far How does Doom Patrol compare with Titans?(Photo by Jace Downs / 2018 Warner Bros Entertainment Inc. All Rights Reserved)Doom Patrol boasts the better premiere. Taking that into consideration, it could very well eclipse its predecessor given time, of course. – Eric Joseph, We Got This CoveredExecutive produced and written by Jeremy Carver (Supernatural, Being Human), Doom Patrol still has many of the same “mature” aspirations as Titans, including a pilot episode that not only features plenty of nudity, but also drops F-bombs as though its main point of reference for how people talk is Goodfellas and The Departed. – Kevin Yeoman, ScreenRantWhere the lack of content restrictions on DC Universe’s Titans always felt like kids getting to say curse words for the first time, [Brendan] Fraser wields them like a comedy weapon. Almost every expletive elicits a laugh, and Fraser milks them for all they’re worth. But beyond that, there’s a an incredible depth and numerous surprises to Steele’s story that you (probably) won’t see coming. – Alex Zelban, Decider I found the first hour of this oddball adventure far more enjoyable and consistent than DC Universe s Titans, enlivened by sharp direction and a great ensemble. – Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.comDoes the Acting Measure Up?(Photo by Quantrell D. Colbert / 2018 Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. All Rights Reserved)The strength of Doom Patrol is how the fun balances so well with the adult, dark elements, and none of that would work without both great writing and a stellar cast. – Jessica Mason, The Mary SueWhat makes it work, beyond the fun of the deconstruction, Tudyk s always welcomingly skewering narration and the non-stop weirdness are the performances and deep grounding in the emotional lives of the characters. –ZalbenNeither Fraser nor Bomer are physically present in the roles of Robotman or N Golden Globes 2020 Red Carpet Arrivals See all the stars, celebrities, and artists who showed up on one of the biggest nights in Hollywood! by RT Staff | January 5, 2020 | Comments

3. LIVE-ACTION STAR WARS MOVIES NOT DIRECTED BY GEORGE LUCAS HAVE A HIGHER TOMATOMETER AVERAGE(Photo by Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation)Without George Lucas there wouldn’t be Star Wars, so we re not including this Tomatometer statistic to take a dig at the man whose four Star Wars films have a 73.25% average. His two best films are A New Hope (93%) and The Revenge of the Sith (80%), but The Phantom Menace (54%) and Attack of the Clones (66%) are the two lowest-rated live-action movies of the whole franchise. The movies directed by J.J. Abrams, Rian Johnson, Irvin Kershner, Richard Marquand, Gareth Edwards, and Ron Howard have the higher 85.5% average.4. THE LUCAS PREQUELS GET BETTER WITH EACH INSTALLMENT, ACCORDING TO THE TOMATOMETER George Lucas’s prequel series got off to a rough start with the 54% Tomatometer-rated Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace. It is the only live-action Star Wars movie to have a Rotten score (Darth Maul rules, though). However, its sequels Attack of the Clones (66%) and The Revenge of the Sith (80%) brought the series back to Fresh and pushed the trilogy to an overall average of 66.6%. If you’re looking for a great moment in the prequel trilogy, J.J. Abrams recently shared his favorite moment, and it’s a doozy.5. STAR WARS MOVIES THAT FEATURE A DEATH STAR OR A STARKILLER BASE HAVE A HIGHER TOMATOMETER AVERAGE THAN THE ONES THAT DON T(Photo by ©Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures/Lucasfilm Ltd./Courtesy Everett Collection)A New Hope, Return of the Jedi, The Force Awakens, and Rogue One all feature star-sized weapons of mass destruction that would require many independent contractors to construct. While things didn’t end well for the Death Stars or Starkiller Base (a.k.a. the really big Death Star), the four films that feature them have an 87.5% Tomatometer average and an average box office of 8 million domestically. On the other hand, Death Star-less films have a 76% Tomatometer average and “only” average 8 million domestically.Is it even better for the film if the Death Star makes a planet disappear? Yes. A New Hope and The Force Awakens feature total planetary destruction and averaged more money (.1 billion) and have higher critical scores (93%) than Return of the Jedi and Rogue One — movies that didn’t allow their Death Stars to obliterate any planets (8 million / 82.5% Tomatometer).6. THE ANIMATED TV SHOWS HAVE A 95.3% TOMATOMETER AVERAGEStar Wars: Resistance (92%), Star Wars: Rebels (100%), and Star Wars: The Clone Wars (94%) have done a fine job expanding the Star Wars universe and bringing memorable characters such as Ahsoka Tano, Saw Gerrera, and The Bendu to life. A big reason for their success is the presence of creator, producer, writer, showrunner, and director Dave Filoni, also now instrumental in the success of The Mandalorian. After a misstep with Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Filoni has proven himself to be a brilliant shepherd of the animated world. We also loved his appearance in Jon Favreau’s The Chef Show, which you need to watch now.7. STAR WARS FILMS FEATURING LIMB LOSS HAVE A HIGHER TOMATOMETER AVERAGE THAN THOSE THAT DON’TBetween Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Count Dooku, General Grievous, Mace Windu, and that unlucky Mos Eisley cantina patron in A New Hope, many characters have lost limbs in the Star Wars world. The only movies that don t feature limb loss are The Force Awakens and The Phantom Menace – we didn’t count Darth Maul being cut in half – which means the live-action movies featuring limb loss have a higher Tomatometer average (82%) than the movies that don’t (73%). This statistic isn’t important, we just wanted to mention it because so many arms and legs go flying.8. THE FOUR STAR WARS MOVIES WRITTEN BY LAWRENCE KASDAN HAVE AN 84% TOMATOMETER AVERAGE(Photo by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures / Lucasfilm)Kasdan took the Star Wars world to new heights with his excellent screenplay for The Empire Strikes Back (he didn’t write the classic Han Solo line “I know,” and it bothers him), and he helped J.J. Abrams reintroduce the franchise with his work on The Force Awakens. He also wrote the screenplays for Return of the Jedi and Solo, the latter of which we think might come to be seen as a little underrated in the years to come. Kasdan’s 84% average is better than the 74% average for the four films written by George Lucas (not hating on Lucas; just the facts).9. THE STAR WARS FRANCHISE HAS A SLIGHTLY HIGHER TOMATOMETER AVERAGE (74%) THAN THE STAR TREK FRANCHISE (73%)The only reason we’re bringing this up is because J.J. Abrams has directed Fresh films in each franchise. He helmed the 94% Tomatometer-rated Star Trek in 2009 and followed it up with the 84%-rated Star Trek Into Darkness in 2013. Then, in 2015 he unleashed The Force Awakens on the world. All three films were giant hits, and we’re hoping The Rise of Skywalker follows in their footsteps. After looking at all the theatrically released movies and television shows, Star Wars has the edge between the big space franchises, because the Star Trek series has six Rotten entries that dragged the Tomatometer average down. The Star Wars franchise has a higher average, but Abrams’ 2009 Star Trek movie (94%) has a higher Tomatometer score than The Force Awakens (93%).10. THE HIGHER THE TOMATOMETER SCORE, THE MORE MONEY THE STAR WARS MOVIE MAKES (ON AVERAGE)* (Photo by 20th Century Fox/Everett Collection)This may sound obvious, but the four Star Wars movies with Tomatometer scores above 90% average a stellar 4 million at the domestic box office. A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, The Force Awakens, and The Last Jedi were money-making machines that were also critically beloved. The seven movies with Tomatometer scores below 90% have a 8 million average, which is still great – it just isn’t 4 million.*The domestic box office totals have been adjusted for inflation. 11. THE FIRST MOVIE IN EACH TRILOGY MAKES THE MOST MONEYThe three highest-grossing films in the Star Wars franchise are A New Hope (.2 billion), The Phantom Menace (6 million), and The Force Awakens (7 million). Which is understandable because they represented something new and mysterious. Do you remember the buzz around The Phantom Menace? If not, go back a few years and you’ll recall the insane amount of hype that surrounded The Force Awakens. People love new Star Wars films and the proof is in the box office.12. THIRD MOVIES IN STAR WARS TRILOGIES MAKE MORE MONEY THAN THE SECOND MOVIES(Photo by Industrial Light Magic/Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation/Courtesy Everett Collection)If history repeats itself, The Rise of Skywalker will gross more than The Last Jedi and less than The Force Awakens. While we don’t have too large of a data pool, we do know that Return of the Jedi (0 million) and The Revenge of the Sith (6 million) pulled in more money than The Empire Strikes Back (1 million) and Attack of the Clones (3 million). Is it because people show up to see how the trilogy ends? Was it because of the adorable and deadly Ewoks? Or, do people just really love lightsaber duels on lava planets?Tell us about your favorite Star Wars moments in the comments.Like this?

This week s Ketchup brings you more headlines from the world of film development news, covering movies based on true stories like Boston Strangler, I Wanna Dance with Somebody, Oppenheimer, and The Woman King.This WEEK S TOP STORYCILLIAN MURPHY CONFIRMED AS CHRISTOPHER NOLAN S OPPENHEIMER (Photo by Everett Collection)Throughout Hollywood s long history of making movies about real life figures, it s a lingering complaint that actors frequently do not look like the real life figures that they are portraying. For Oppenheimer, about the life of the father of the atomic bomb, J. Robert Oppenheimer, director Christopher Nolan appears to be sidestepping such criticisms by casting frequent collaborator Cillian Murphy, who played his Scarecrow in Batman Begins, as the titular scientist, and the resemblance is sort of uncanny. Universal Pictures has scheduled Oppenheimer for release on July 21, 2023, which puts it around the same late July slot when many of Christopher Nolan s films have been released (Interstellar was on 7/21/2017, and The Dark Knight Rises was on 7/20/2012). Oppenheimer will start filming in early 2022 on IMAX cameras and with a budget of over 0 million. In related news, the Peaky Blinders movie, also starring Cillian Murphy, was confirmed this week to start filming in 18 months (in 2023), after the show s sixth and final season wraps.Other Top Headlines1. KEIRA KNIGHTLEY TO STAR IN SERIAL KILLER TRUE STORY BOSTON STRANGLER(Photo by Barry Wetcher/©Warner Bros.)Although several others have possibly eclipsed his notoriety, the argument can be made that the early 1960s murders ascribed to The Boston Strangler left an indelible mark on the 1960s, including the 1968 film The Boston Strangler (Fresh at 86%), starring Tony Curtis. Filmmaker Ridley Scott is set to produce a new film called Boston Strangler via his Scott Free Productions for 20th Century Studios, and Keira Knightley is the film s first announced star as Loretta McLaughlin, the first reporter to connect the murders and break the story of the Strangler. Writer/director Matt Ruskin (Crown Heights, Certified Fresh at 77%) will adapt the Boston Strangler screenplay and direct when filming starts on location in Boston in December, 2021. The role of Alberto DeSalvo, the Boston Strangler himself, has not yet been cast.2. WHITNEY HOUSTON BIOPIC CASTS THREE KEY REAL LIFE ROLES (Photo by ©A24)The Whitney Houston biopic I Wanna Dance with Somebody (12/23/2022) is now filming at locations in Boston and New Jersey, but until this week, several key roles in Houston s life remained unfilled (or at least, unannounced). Let s start with Robyn Crawford, Houston s longtime assistant, who will be played by Nafessa Williams (Thunder on TV s Black Lightining), after the role s first actress, Moses Ingram, recently parted ways with the role. From the same announcement, we also now know that Whitney s parents, John and Cissy Houston, will be played by Clarke Peters (Lester Freamon from HBO s The Wire) and Tamara Tunie (Dr. Melinda Warner from TV s Law Order: Special Victims Unit). That news all came out on Monday, and then yesterday, we learned that the role of Houston s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown will be played by 15-year-old Brian Danielle Singleton, who played the young Octavia Spencer in the superhero movie Thunder Force. Comedian Eddie Murphy will also be a character in I Wanna Dance with Somebody, and he will be played by Jimmie Fails, who co-starred in and co-wrote The Last Black Man in San Francisco (Certified Fresh at 92%). Those five actors join other already announced cast members Naomi Ackie (Whitney Houston), Ashton Sanders (Bobby Brown), and Stanley Tucci (Clive Davis).3. SAM RAIMI PRODUCING DYSTOPIAN THRILLER BOY KILLS WORLD (Photo by ©Universal courtesy Everett Collection)Filmmaker Sam Raimi is currently deep into post-production on his return to Marvel as the director of the sequel Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (3/25/2022), but that isn t preventing him from occasionally producing other directors projects. Raimi s production company is just one of the partners on a new dystopian thriller called Boy Kills World, which will soon start filming on location in South Africa. Bill Skarsgard (Pennywise in IT) will play the title character, Boy, a deaf mute with a vibrant imagination who escapes into the jungle when his family is murdered. Samara Weaving (Ready or Not) will also co-star as an assassin in Boy Kills World, which will be the feature film debut of German filmmaker Moritz Mohr.4. TILDA SWINTON AND GEORGE MACKAY LEAD POST-APOCALYPTIC MUSICAL IN THE END (Photo by Olivier Huitel/Avalon Photoshot, Elizabeth Goodenough/Everett Collection)Sometimes, we are blessed with bizarre but amusing coincidences in the movie news world. For example, we just learned some big news about Christopher Nolan s Oppenheimer, which of course centers on a scientist who feared the end of the world. This same week, we also learned that director Joshua Oppenheimer no relation to J. Robert (we think) is preparing his next movie, and it will be a post-apocalyptic musical about the last human family on Earth. Titled The End, this will be Oppenheimer s first narrative feature; he previously directed the Oscar-nominated documentaries The Act of Killing (Certified Fresh at 95%) and The Look of Silence (Certified Fresh at 96%). Tilda Swinton will star in The End with George MacKay (1918) and Stephen Graham (Al Capone in HBO s Boardwalk Empire) as the last human family when filming starts sometime in 2022.5. THREE RISING STARS JOIN AFRICAN HISTORICAL EPIC THE WOMAN KING (Photo by ©IFC Films)We haven t seen many historical epics in recent years, but there was a time when they regularly racked up end-of-year awards and critical acclaim. One notable project still in the works despite this apparent downward trend, though, is The Woman King, about the Kingdom of Dahomey in the 18th and 19th centuries, which had an all-female military unit that may have inspired the Dora Milaje in Marvel s Black Panther. We ve known for a while that the lead role will be played by Viola Davis, and recent weeks have also seen the announcement of other actors like Lashana Lynch (Captain Marvel) and John Boyega as King Ghazo. This week, the film s ensemble cast was further filled out by three rising phenoms in Jayme Lawson (Bella Real in the upcoming The Batman), Hero Fiennnes Tiffin (the nephew of Ralph Fiennes) and Masali Baduza (BBC s Noughts Crosses). The Woman King will be directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood (The Old Guard, The Secret Life of Bees) for Sony/TriStar.6. EMMA STONE PRODUCING A24 HORROR I SAW THE TV GLOW (Photo by Jason Smith/Everett Collection)There are two companies that are now arguably most identified with horror namely Blumhouse and A24 and the types of horror stories that these two companies produce also couldn t be more different. Blumhouse does big concept horror like Get Out, The Purge, and The Invisible Man, while A24 produces films that fall into either indie or folk horror (or both) like The Witch, Hereditary, and Midsommar. Emma Stone s Fruit Tree production company is now collaborating with A24 on a new horror film called I Saw the TV Glow about two teenage outcasts who bond over their shared love of a scary television show, but the boundary between TV and reality begins to blur after it is mysteriously canceled. I Saw the TV Glow will be the second feature film from writer/director Jane Schoenbrun, whose We re All Going to the World s Fair (Fresh at 88%) debuted at the Sundance Film Festival this year.7. GREEN BOOK DIRECTOR ADAPTING FRENCH TIME TRAVEL MOVIE (Photo by Priscilla Grant/Everett Collection)To his credit, few people probably could have ever guessed that Peter Farrelly, the director of Dumb and Dumber and The Three Stooges, would go ont to direct a film that would win three Academy Awards, including Best Picture, but that s exactly what he did with Green Book (Certified Fresh at 77%) in 2018. With that in mind, perhaps it shouldn t be so surprising that Farrelly is now negotiating to direct an English language remake of the 2006 French time travel drama Seras-tu La. That film was about a 60-year-old widower in 2006 who gets the chance to travel 30 years backwards in time to attempt to prevent the death of his wife in 1976. In the meantime, Farrelly is currently filming The Greatest Beer Run Ever, based on the true story of a man who traveled to Vietnam in 1967 to visit his friends who were actively fighting in the Vietnam War.8. JAKE GYLLENHAAL TO STAR IN ADAPTATION OF PROPHET FROM DEADPOOL CO-CREATOR (Photo by Anne Marie Fox/TM & ©Copyright Fox Searchlight)Much can be argued about comic books of the late 1980s and early 1990s, but for the actual writers and artists who create comics, it all started to change in 1992 when a handful of the most popular young creators broke away from DC and Marvel to form their own company, called Image Comics. One of those Image co-founders was Rob Liefeld, who, during his time at Marvel, co-created Deadpool. For several years now, Liefeld has been working on getting movie deals for his own creations, and it sounds like one of them will finally start filming soon. Jake Gyllenhaal is now signed to star in Prophet, based on Liefeld s comic book of the same title, to be directed by former Marvel Studios stunt coordinator-turned director Sam Hargrave (Extraction, Fresh at 67%). Gyllenhaal will star as John Prophet, a man conscripted by Germans near the end of World War II and subjected to scientific experiments that gave him superhuman strength (basically like Captain America, if he were a Nazi) who then wakes up 20 years later in 1965. In the comics, John Prophet wears a purple-and-gold outfit with a haircut that has to be seen to be comprehended, but Jake Gyllenhaal s movie look will probably be different.On an Apple device?

It’s time for a new hit movie musical, and Netflix hopes The Prom will rise to the occasion. Fortunately for them, if the first reviews are any indication, Ryan Murphy’s adaptation of the Broadway show will fit the bill and delight subscribers of all ages with its mix of old-school razzle-dazzle and progressive subject matter.The Prom, which arrives on the streaming service December 11, stars Meryl Streep, James Corden, Nicole Kidman, and Andrew Rannells as egocentric showbiz types from NYC who descend upon a conservative Midwest American town to help a teen (Jo Ellen Pellman) whose sexual orientation has caused her school to cancel the titular dance. For both its message of tolerance and its lively spectacle, it seems like it might just be the movie of the year.Here’s what critics are saying about The Prom:Should Ryan Murphy fans flock to the movie?It s a perfect combination of filmmaker and material. Ian Sandwell, Digital SpyThis film is well inside Ryan Murphy’s Glee wheelhouse. Fionnuala Halligan, Screen InternationalMurphy is back in Glee territory here, for better or worse. David Rooney, Hollywood ReporterRyan Murphy again finds the underdog vibe of Glee that captured pop culture’s imagination. Brian Truitt, USA TodayThe Prom demonstrates that Murphy has matured as a filmmaker since his Glee days. Courtney Howard, Fresh FictionThe Prom is the best of what Murphy can offer Hollywood — a taste of the past with its eyes on the future. Jude Dry, IndieWire(Photo by Melinda Sue Gordon/Netflix)Is it a worthy adaptation of the musical?[Murphy’s] real achievement is making The Prom feel like a film rather than a captured-on-camera stage production, one that still retains the let’s-put-on-a-show energy of live theater. Thom Geier, The Wrap[The] stage vision translates surprisingly well to the screen thanks to the movie’s visual flair. Jude Dry, IndieWireBut what if you don t care for musicals?It probably goes without saying, but anybody with an aversion to musicals or Murphy s previous work, such as Glee, should stay well clear of The Prom. Ian Sandwell, Digital SpyRegrettably, much of the film s humor comes in the form of musical theater in-jokes. Mary Sollosi, Entertainment WeeklyIn recent years, there’s been a spate of musicals that you’ll enjoy even if you don’t like musicals … The Prom is no such musical. Ben Travis, Empire MagazineRyan Murphy offers a fun and lightweight musical that will certainly not win over the sort of people who detest the genre but will likely entertain those who do. Lewis Knight, Daily MirrorThe Prom isn’t quite as ubiquitous as, say, Cats or Les Miserables, and thus Murphy’s film will feel refreshing for a streaming audience often itching to watch Netflix’s next big thing. Brian Truitt, USA Today(Photo by Melinda Sue Gordon/Netflix)And what about fans of old-school musicals?Aside from its impassioned overtures for LGBTQ+ rights, The Prom has all the makings of a classic Hollywood musical. Jude Dry, IndieWireIf The Prom is a proudly liberated musical, it’s also one that’s so defiantly square, with a vibe that reaches back to the incandescently wholesome musicals of the studio system. Owen Gleiberman, VarietyIt will frustrate audiences who prefer their musicals with subtlety and nuance. Doug Jamieson, The Jam ReportHow are the songs?The heartrending songs Pellman and [Ariana] DeBose deliver are sweet and, more importantly, powerfully poignant. Courtney Howard, Fresh FictionCatchy in the moment, even if they seldom linger long in the head. David Rooney, Hollywood ReporterThe songs truly are terrible. Jesse Hassenger, AV ClubRyan FujitaniHow is Meryl Streep?Streep is transcendent… a genuine campy hoot. Courtney Howard, Fresh FictionStreep is consistently hilarious. David Rooney, Hollywood ReporterStreep absolutely shines in her most endearing role in years. Doug Jamieson, The Jam ReportMeryl Streep is having the most fun in years as she revels in her character s awfulness. Ian Sandwell, Digital SpyAs fantastic as every cast member is — and there isn’t a dud in the bunch — it’s still Streep’s show. Jude Dry, IndieWireAnd James Corden?I don’t think he has ever been better. Scott Menzel, We Live EntertainmentHe burrows so deeply into the character’s quibbling insouciance that he gives him a three-dimensional essence. He’s soulfully funny and touching. Owen Gleiberman, VarietyCorden’s performance feels the most like a caricature and comes across as especially calculated, with some moments landing with comedic heft but most of them not. Lewis Knight, Daily MirrorIt s a flat performance without much heart… This is a role that cries out for Nathan Lane. David Rooney, Hollywood ReporterMurphy made a major error in the casting of James Corden as the musical s gay male lead character… a flaw that undoes a lot of the good work elsewhere. Corden camp[s] it up to the point of being regressive and offensive… His performance comes across as dated and strikes a sour note. Ian Sandwell, Digital Spy(Photo by Melinda Sue Gordon/Netflix)And what about their young castmates?I would certainly be remiss if I did not mention newcomer Jo Ellen Pellman who absolutely steals every scene that she is in. Scott Menzel, We Live Entertainment[Pelllman is] “one of the discoveries of the year. Ian Sandwell, Digital SpyPellman makes an assured debut. Yet it’s DeBose who turns in a star-making performance. Courtney Howard, Fresh FictionPellman holds her own throughout, plus she and DeBose… form a dynamic pairing essential to the film’s aspirational themes. Brian Truitt, USA TodayDoes Pellman s Emma get enough screen time?The film really sparkles when [Pellman and DeBose] are in the spotlight. If only the focus was on them more often. Emily Maskell, Little White LiesWhere’s Emma in all of this?… The Prom doesn’t seem especially interested in accepting Emma as an individual person. Jesse Hassenger, AV ClubThis, though, is Emma’s story, and she gets lost in the mix…the character feels thin. Ben Travis, Empire MagazineIt s a shame the film doesn t spend more time with Emma as a character as this is truly her story, even if sometimes the Broadway divas are more fun. Lewis Knight, Daily MirrorThe movie belongs not to the people with the painful problem, who actually overcome something difficult, but the quartet of invaders… The film has way too much in common with the egomaniacs at its center. Mary Sollosi, Entertainment Weekly(Photo by Melinda Sue Gordon/Netflix)Does it convey its message convincingly?The Prom is very much a movie about the two Americas, and part of its luster is that it portrays the conservative Midwestern one with dignity, even as it attacks the impulses of bigotry. Owen Gleiberman, VarietyBob Martin and Chad Beguelin’s script goes as soft as cafeteria Jell-O when it comes to the Indiana crowd. Thom Geier, The WrapIts core message of inclusivity and tolerance is more than welcome, even if it’s more fun to watch the self-absorbed Broadway stars learn their lessons than the PTA come to heel. Fionnuala Halligan, Screen InternationalThe Prom is better at satirically skewering Broadway than it is at seriously skewering homophobia, which feels like a missed opportunity. Ben Travis, Empire MagazineShould you keep the tissues handy?There won t be a dry eye in the house come the finale. Ian Sandwell, Digital SpyI’ve watched the film twice already, and I teared up both times. Scott Menzel, We Live EntertainmentThe tear-jerking climax is worth the wait, despite the choppy waters along the way. Lewis Knight, Daily Mirror(Photo by Melinda Sue Gordon/Netflix)Is The Prom the perfect way to end 2020?After the year we’ve all had, Netflix’s glorious musical comedy The Prom couldn’t have come at a better time. Brian Truitt, USA TodayThis is a feel great musical extravaganza that is exactly what the world needs in 2020. Scott Menzel, We Live EntertainmentThe Prom is everything you need right now. Jude Dry, IndieWire[It’s] an eye-poppingly vibrant finale to a grim year. Ben Travis, Empire MagazineThe Prom premieres on Netflix on Friday, December 11, 2020.On an Apple device?

As 1960s psychic Criswell famously intoned at the beginning of Plan 9 from Outer Space, We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives. But genre television, and its comic book-based subgenre, has the peculiar ability to allow characters living in the relative present to glimpse into the future. Or, in some cases, spend a whole season revealing a future state for the characters established by their actions in the present. Take the example of Heroes’ Shanti virus story line, in which Peter Petrelli (Milo Ventimiglia) learned the terrible truth about the mistakes being made in his present. Unfortunately, that story line was never finished due to a writer s strike and Peter’s girlfriend — who traveled with him to the dark future where the virus killed millions — was erased from existence.For the most part, shows that are able to jump to the future are also able to round out those story lines in more concrete ways. While the future is frequently portrayed as a dystopian hellhole, sometimes series manage to produce interesting realities despite the grim darkness of future events. Here are the five we think represent the best of those television show futures, even when they were the worst possible outcomes for the characters.Arrow(Photo by JSquared Photography/The CW)Future: 2040The seventh season of Arrow introduced a flash-forward to the distant year of 2040. It is a seemingly dystopian time for Star City with an added cyberpunk edge thanks to Felicity Smoak’s (Emily Bett Rickards) Archer program watching over the Glades and William’s (Ben Lewis) leading tech company offering him access to the halls of power.To be fair, the series never had to budget to fully realize its William Gibson–esque ideas, but it was all there in dialogue. After years of being the city’s low-income hovel, the Glades found economic prosperity, formed its own municipality, voted in Rene Ramirez (Rick Gonzalez) as its mayor, and built a wall to keep out the Star City riff-raff. Omni-corportation Galaxy One set its headquarters in the Glades and, despite Rene’s leadership, seems to be the real executive force in the community. Using a version of Felicity’s security software, they also kept close surveillance on the citizenry. Late in the season, the company introduced shock troops with AI-assisted predictive combat helmets. The ideas could fuel their own spin-off if given the money to execute them on a grander scale.Despite the modest production values, the infusion of cyberpunk ideas into Arrow worked. In fact, it was so effective that we wish the series focused more on the exploits of William, Mia (Kat McNamara), and Connor Hawke (Joseph David-Jones) instead of Oliver Queen’s (Stephen Amell) 2019 guilt-trip. Season 8 may give us what we want with McNamara and David-Jones recent promotions to series regulars. Alternatively, Oliver s work with the Monitor (LaMonica Garrett) may erase Star City 2040 from the timestream.Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.Future: 91 Years LaterAgents of S.H.I.E.L.D. s fifth season dedicated half a season to a future set 91 years after the season 4 finale. There, Coulson (Clark Gregg) and the rest of the team — minus Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) — discovered a destroyed Earth and a former S.H.I.E.L.D. base known as The Lighthouse standing as the last human settlement. Oh, and just for good measure, the Lighthouse was also occupied by the Kree, invited at the behest of Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) shortly after the destruction of Earth. Other shocks included an armless future version of Yo-Yo (Natalia Cordova-Buckley), and Kasius, a hedonistic Kree magistrate played to Targaryen perfection by Dominic Rains.For the most part, this future world was confined to the corridors of the Lighthouse. But occasional trips to other Earth fragments illustrated just how bad the End of the World could be. Intense gravity storms ravaged the remaining landmasses and critters imported by the Kree served as both guard dogs to the devastation and as a final punishment to any human who got out of line back at the Lighthouse.Since S.H.I.E.L.D. stayed in the early 2100s for the duration of the story — except for a notable episode in which Fitz figured out a slow-motion way to get to the future — it could devote more resources to realizing that world. And it would do so with some spectacular special effects shots that made the Earth seem as foreign as any alien world visited on a space-faring TV show like Star Trek: Discovery. And S.H.I.E.L.D.’s future had time to breathe and develop characters like Flint (Coy Stewart), Kasius, and Deke (Jeff Ward), the scheming grandson of two S.H.I.E.L.D. agents who remains with the show into the sixth season.But the most interesting element of the story was the defeat of humanity itself. With the human world destroyed and the Kree arriving as conquerors, the people S.H.I.E.L.D. agents met were broken, more interested in mere survival than reclaiming their last bit of turf from aliens. It was a theme more harrowing than any production value.DC s Legends of Tomorrow (Photo by Dean Buscher/The CW)Future: 2213When it became clear Ava Sharpe (Jes Macallan) was going to be more than an occasional foil for Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) and the Legends, DC s Legends of Tomorrow seeded the idea that Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) was keeping a deep, dark secret about her past. But since this is Legends, her dark secret was part of an unusually bright and shiny Star City of the year 2213.The paradise glimpsed by the Legends two centuries from now was just a really nice Vancouver housing complex, park, and nearby office building. But it established a surprisingly clear and lovely future — a real rarity on genre TV shows. There, everyone has a personal Ava, as it turns out Rip bought and modified an Advanced Variation Automation clone to serve as his second in command at the Time Bureau. Sure, this future may not be so bright and cheery for the Ava clones — or, indeed, Ava herself when she finally learned the truth — but it serves as an unusual outlier for future realities on the show.Indeed, Legends began with an attempt to stop a grim 2042 from occurring. There, Vandal Savage (Casper Crump) was the absolute ruler of the world and Rip was forced to watch his wife and child die during one of Savage’s raids. When that future was eliminated, it was replaced with a 2042 in which A.R.G.U.S. became a totalitarian regime, persecuting Metas and non-Christian faiths with equal ferocity. Legend Zari Tomas (Tala Ashe) hailed from this grim future, which has seemingly vanished thanks to Nate s (Nick Zano) attempts to create empathy between humans and the monsters the Legends unleashed in season 3. Perhaps his actions have brought the 2213 future in which everyone appears to have adequate essentials and commercialism seems to co-exist peacefully with the environment much closer to his own present times.The Umbrella Academy(Photo by Netflix)Future: One Week LaterThe grim future on Netflix s The Umbrella Academy was set to begin shortly after the first episode. As Number 5 (Aidan Gallagher) explained, his first attempt at time travel took him to a spot 25 years in his future, but roughly a week ahead of his family when he finally rejoined them. The future he glimpsed saw a dead Earth with himself as the only survivor. Unable to use his powers to return to his present, 5 spent many years alone with a department store mannequin as company. Finally, agents of the Commission arrived to offer him a job as a time-traveling hitman. And when you consider the charred wreck of world he found himself in, killing people to maintain the timeline was a definite upgrade.Thanks to the Netflix budget, the desolation of the future was appropriately epic. From an initial smaller set of a ruined Umbrella Academy to a great sweep in some later shots, the series set up a future so bleak, you never really questioned 5’s drive to prevent it.And unlike many of the futures we ve discussed, the dead Earth Number 5 experienced is at the very center of the story. Even as the show prepares its second season, it is unclear if the group s actions during the season 1 finale really stopped the Apocalypse. It may just be on pause while the group work out their issues.The Flash(Photo by Katie Yu/The CW )Future: 2049Whatever issues Earth-1 faced in the early parts of the Arrowverse s 2040s, it all seems to be resolved by 2049 — the year repeatedly visited by The Flash cast throughout season 5. Nora West-Allen (Jessica Parker Kennedy) hailed from that time. But growing up without her father Barry (Grant Gustin) meant an isolated childhood surrounded by mementos of his exploits at the Flash Museum and the less-than-comforting words of his concerned friends. She also dealt with an overbearing mother who dampened her Speed Force abilities.As realized on the show, the Central City of 2049 seems to have escaped the darker futures glimpsed on Legends and Arrow. S.T.A.R. Labs has been fully converted into the Flash Museum and meta-abilities appear to be celebrated within city limits. Also, the town infrastructure remains in tact despite countless raids and attacks from villains looking to trip up Team Flash across the years.It is a future which fits the more optimistic Flash, as opposed to the cyberpunk future of Arrow. It also represents the curious way in which all three interconnected Arrowverse shows look 20-odd years in the future and arrive at different conclusions. But the Central City of 2049 may not be as solid as it seems with the date of Barry s disappearance moving from 2024 to 2019. Will that pleasant future disappear with Barry during the upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover? Time will, of course, tell.Like this?
