Best Supporting Actress(Photo by @ Annapurna)Career Tomatometer average for winners: 55%Recent films Tomatometer average for winners: 55.8%Average number of films winners had appeared in: 22Best place to be ranked on the Tomatometer: 3rd of 5Tomatometer average of winning films in this category: 81.3%Tie: Regina King If Beale Street Could Talk / Emma Stone The Favourite Tomatometer Prediction: Regina King If Beale Street Could TalkThis was the most hotly contested category as Regina King and Emma Stone each collected four points according to the methodology: they ve both made a similar number of movies (King with 22, Stone with 21) and earned similar career Tomatometer averages (King at 52.5%, Stone at 60.1%). To break the tie, we dug into recent Best Supporting Actress trends and discovered that first-time Academy Award nominees have won 12 of the last 18 Academy Awards in this category. This gives first-time nominee King an advantage over Oscar-winner and multiple nominee Emma Stone. Between that and the fact that King’s 52.5% career Tomatometer average is closer to the 55% career Tomatometer average of the last 18 winners, we re giving the Tomatometer s prediction officially to King for her work in If Beale Street Could Talk.Best Supporting ActorCareer Tomatometer average for winners: 60%Recent films Tomatometer average for winners: 51.1%Average number of films winners had appeared in: 34.5Best place to be ranked on the Tomatometer: 2nd out of 5Tomatometer average of winning films in this category: 89.2%Tie: Sam Elliott A Star in Born / Sam Rockwell ViceTomatometer Prediction: Sam Elliott A Star is Born In a battle of the Sams, whose career Tomatometer averages are both extremely close to those of prior winners in the category (Sam Elliott at 61.9%, Sam Rockwell at 62%; the category average is 60%), we decided to go with Elliott, because A Star is Born has an 89% Tomatometer score that matches up perfectly with the 89% Tomatometer average of the past 18 winners s films in the Supporting Actor category.Further building Elliott’s case: No actor has won a Best Supporting Actor, in this century, when starring in a movie with a Tomatometer score in the 60s. This probably means bad news for Sam Rockwell, who is nominated for Vice (66% on the Tomatometer). Much like the Best Supporting Actress category, this award also tends to go to first-time nominees; 11 of the last 18 winners have been first-time nominees, with the last five Oscars going to first-timers Jared Leto, J.K. Simmons, Mark Rylance, Mahershala Ali, and Sam Rockwell.That said, the Mahershala Ali train this year says the Tomatometer might not be quite on the money here.Best Actor(Photo by @ Warner Bros. )Career Tomatometer average for winners: 63.8%Recent films Tomatometer average for winners: 58.1%Average number of films winners had appeared in: 29.2Best place to be ranked on the Tomatometer: 2nd of 5Tomatometer average of winning films in this category: 87.2%Tie: Bradley Cooper A Star is Born / Christian Bale ViceTomatometer Prediction: Bradley Cooper A Star is BornRami Malek and Christian Bale are the clear front runners for this award, but the Tomatometer says otherwise, since no lead actor this century has won an Oscar for starring in a movie with a Tomatometer score in the 60s. Because of this, we’re giving the Tomatometer s nod to Bradley Cooper over Christian Bale.We also took into consideration that A Star is Born has an 89% Tomatometer score, which is the closest of the five nominees movies to the 87.2% Tomatometer average of the past 18 winning movies in this category. Another possible contributing factor for Cooper is that he has appeared in 32 films (the average number for past winners is 29) and A Star is Born is the highest Tomatometer-rated film in the category. Top-rated films in this category win more often than the fourth-ranked films, which is where Vice sits (4 wins compared with 2 wins), which helps give Cooper the advantage.Best ActressCareer Tomatometer average for winners: 59.1%Recent films Tomatometer average for winners: 58.1%Average number of films winners had appeared in: 21.9Best place to be ranked on the Tomatometer: 2nd out of 5Tomatometer average of winning films in this category: 82.5%Tomatometer Prediction: Glenn Close The WifeGlenn Close is the only actor to avoid a tie, according to our system. Why? Close’s career Tomatometer score is 60.2%, which matches up almost perfectly with the 59.1% career Tomatometer averages of recent winners. Also, The Wife is currently at 85%, which is good news for Close because, of all the acting categories, Best Actress has the most winners with films in the 80s on the Tomatometer. On top of that, the average of the winning movies is 82.5%, which is very close to the 85% Tomatometer score for The Wife.Best DirectorCareer Tomatometer average for winners: 80.1%Recent films Tomatometer average for winners: 76.3%Average number of films winners had directed: 9.7Best place to be ranked on the Tomatometer: 3rd of 5Tomatometer average of winning films in this category: 90.5%Tomatometer Prediction: Alfonso Cuarón RomaAlfonso Cuarón won this category based on his career Tomatometer average (83%) and the number of films he has directed (8) being closest to the numbers of the past 18 winners. It also helps that Roma has a 96% Tomatometer score, which gels nicely with the 14 other victorious movies released since 2000 that have a 90%-or-more Tomatometer score. Considering the BAFTA, Director’s Guild, and Critic’s Choice awards he has won this season, we think the Tomatometer is going to get this prediction right.Best Picture (Photo by @ Netflix)Tomatometer average for winning films: 90.2%Tomatometer average for winning films since 2010: 94.8%Best place to be ranked on the Tomatometer: 2ndTomatometer Prediction: RomaSince we only looked at the 18 prior winning movies, we didn’t focus on career Tomatometer averages for this category. Instead, we looked at Tomatometer ranking and scores.The average Tomatometer score for Best Picture winners since 2000 is 90.2%, with 14 of the last 18 winners scoring 90% or above on the Tomatometer. At 96%, Roma meets that threshold and then some. What sealed the deal for Roma is that its Tomatometer score is the second-highest of all the nominees in the category (only Black Panther scored higher at 97%), and eight of the past 12 winners have also been no. 2 by Tomatometer.That said, BlacKkKlansman also scored 96% on the Tomatometer, which ties it for second with Roma, so why did we choose the latter? We went with Roma because it s ranked no. 31 and BlacKkKlansman is ranked no. 39 on Rotten Tomatoes Best of 2018 list, which takes the number of reviews into consideration. When it came to the tie-breaker, we handed it over to the people who make up the Tomatometer: the critics.There you have it. The Tomatometer predicted the winners and we’re hoping we’re able to get at least four of these right so we have a ‘Fresh’ average.Let us know who you think should win in the comment section. 2021年了，抖音快手上面广告这么多，基本都是推荐仙侠类型的手游但是游戏多了随之而来的垃圾手游也越来越多。我来说说我最近玩的一款仙侠手游，在我个人看来这款手游是我玩过仙侠类型里面最好玩的一款。话不多说先上图！！！！

The cast includes Westworld s James Marsden as working-class factory man Stu Redman, Aquaman s Amber Heard as the conflicted Nadine Cross, Odessa Young as the young, pregnant Frannie Goldsmith, and Henry Zaga as the deaf and mute newfound leader Nick Andros.The series takes place a post-apocalyptic world decimated by plague where the forces of good and evil, and the fate of mankind rests on the frail shoulders of the 108-year-old other Mother Abagail and a handful of survivors. Their worst nightmares are embodied in a man with a lethal smile and unspeakable powers: Randall Flagg, the Dark Man, per the official description.The Stand’s previous adaptations include a 1994 miniseries that starred Gary Sinise, Molly Ringwald, and Rob Lowe and a 2008 Marvel comic series.The Man Who Fell to Earth Series in the Works From Star Trek: Discovery Producers(Photo by Courtesy Everett Collection)The Man Who Fell to Earth is turning into a TV series. Based on the novel of the same name and the 1976 film starring David Bowie, the series will follow an alien who arrives on Earth at a turning point in human evolution and must confront his own past to determine our future, per the official announcement.“Walter Tevis’ visionary novel gave us a tech god Willy Wonka from another planet, brought to life by David Bowie’s legendary performance, that foretold Steve Jobs’ and Elon Musk’s impacts on our world. The series will imagine the next step in our evolution, seen through the eyes of an alien who must learn what it means to become human, even as he fights for the survival of his species,” co-showrunners Alex Kurtzman and Jenny Lumet said in a statement. Kurtzman and Lumet are both producers on CBS All Access Star Trek: Discovery.Marvel s Runaways Meet Cloak DaggerMarvel s teen superhero shows are staging a crossover: In the upcoming third season of the Hulu drama Runaways, the main characters from the Freeform drama Cloak Dagger will meet up with the titular teen superhero team. Details about the story line have not yet been revealed.“It’s so fun being able to do something that revels in the Mighty Marvel Manner! Having these young heroes cross over allows fans of both shows to see the adventure everyone has been waiting for and we’ve only hinted at,” said Marvel TV boss Jeph Loeb in a statement announcing the news.Season 3 of Runaways premieres all 10 episodes December 13 on Hulu.Evil Is More Than an Exorcism of the Week The CBS drama Evil, which follows a psychologist, a priest-in-training, and a carpenter who investigate the backlog of unexplained mysteries in the Catholic church, is — as seen in the trailer above — much scarier than any series the network has aired before. But just because it s a procedural doesn t mean the series will feel the same from week to week. We are trying to avoid exorcism of the week, co-creator Robert King told reporters at the Television Critics Association summer press tour on Thursday. The second episode is about miracles. It’s about those question marks in life that you don’t quite know how they happen — a school where all the girls at the school start laughing, and it seems to be almost viral. I would say the other thing is you’re looking at life and you’re seeing evil, not with a capital E but with a small e — the boss who throws things at his employees. Where does that fit in? So that is really what our people are [doing]: Just figuring out what is genetically based villainy, if you want to use that word instead of evil, and what is something that’s even bigger, something more supernatural? But also looking at hope.

8.96.2 2月喜迎See the opening minutes of the sixth and final season of History s Vikings. Defeated by his half-brother Bjorn Ironside (Alexander Ludwig) over the crown of Kattegat, exile Ivar the Boneless (Alex Høgh Andersen) wanders the Silk Road filthy and dejected with a dwindling group of supporters.About the show: In season 5, self-proclaimed God Ivar the Boneless ruled over Kattegat with alarming terror and charged his army into battle against his enemy and half-brother Bjorn Ironside. Using fiery guerrilla warfare, each warrior refused to surrender – blood, pride, and the crown weighing heavily on both of their shoulders. Bjorn and his warriors forced Ivar to flee in the final moments, securing Bjorn’s victory. Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick), reborn after the loss of a great love drove her mad, emerged to crown Bjorn as the new rightful king.Season 6 returns following the battle, with Bjorn victorious and a hero to the people who have suffered under Ivar s tyrannical rule for so long. Bjorn struggles to fill his late father’s shoes as king, while facing numerous dilemmas and wrestling with the idea that power overshadows morals. Meanwhile, Ivar, searching for a new path to separate him from his past, travels The Silk Road toward Russia. Ruthless and unpredictable Russian ruler Prince Oleg (Danila Kozlovsky) shocks even Ivar with his merciless actions. While Lagertha has her own agenda — to live a quieter and less public life on her own farm — new dangers lurk close to home. This season, the Vikings continue to take over Scandinavia as Ubbe (Jordan Patrick Smith) and Torvi (Georgia Hirst) travel to Iceland to uncover the mystery of Floki’s (Gustaf Skarsgård) disappearance, and Hvitserk (Marco Ilsø) pursues his personal vendetta against Ivar.Vikings returns for its sixth and final season with a two-hour premiere on Wednesday, December 4 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
(Photo by VCG/Getty Images)You may not immediately recognize Yuen Woo-ping s name, but if you ve seen the Matrix movies, the Kill Bill movies, or Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, then you ve seen his work. The renowned martial arts director and fight choreographer has orchestrated some of the most memorable and thrilling action sequences in all of cinema, working with people like Jackie Chan, Jet Li, Michelle Yeoh, and Donnie Yen. Some of his films, like Iron Monkey, Wing Chun, and the original Drunken Master, are widely celebrated classics of the genre, which has benefited from his talents for nearly half a century.This week, Yuen releases his latest directorial effort, a spinoff of the popular Ip Man franchise called Master Z: Ip Man Legacy. The film focuses on a martial arts master in 1960s Hong Kong who loses a duel with Ip Man and decides to retire, only to be drawn back into fighting by a local drug dealer. Normally, we would ask Yuen what his Five Favorite Films were, but with such an extensive list of credits, we thought we d do something a little more interesting. With that in mind, read on for Yuen Woo-ping s five favorite fight scenes that he himself directed.
ter roommates deal with this bombshell news? Will Nandor s human slave find it in himself to revolt against those he s been serving all this time? And what other types of wrenches will series creator and executive producer Clement and company throw into the mix to keep their bloody comedy series fresh going into its new season? The creatives and cast behind FX s hit horror-comedy spoke with Rotten Tomatoes during the 2020 Television Critics Association winter tour and teased a few juicy tidbits.1. Guillermo Is Set to Kick Some Ass – No Stunt-Double Needed(Photo by © FX) I m just like, Wow, another curveball for Guillermo for this season! Guillen exclaimed, referencing his character s late-in-season-1 discovery. Last year, we placed him in a very uncomfortable scenario where it s like, he s basically a slave to his master, but also has dreams and aspirations, and finds out in the cliffhanger that he has Van Helsing in his blood. It s an intriguing position for the character, who acts as the empathetic human entry-point for many viewers into the series. Guillen admitted the change offers a huge level up for him as an actor, and for his character. My story arc in the first season was basically facial expressions. So what will life look like for Guillermo when the show returns? For one, Guillen was given a trainer and workout regimen to get in shape for what was in store. According to the actor, he lost 20 pounds of fat and gained 10 pounds of muscle, working on his upper body to prepare for the action scenes in the series. And while he remains tight-lipped about what exactly those scenes entailed, he does reveal that Guillermo will be involved in a fight sequence and is gonna jump out a window. I m glad to report that, even though I had a stunt double who went to work every day and was ready to go in full-on Guillermo costume and everything, he never went on, Guillen said. I literally did all my stunts for the season with the exception of one stunt that they wouldn t let me do for insurance purposes.
(Photo by Warner Bros. courtesy Everett Collection)On one fateful day in 1998, John Travolta received a call from Franchise Pictures owner Elie Samaha, who gave him some very good news. Samaha was looking to make a splash in Hollywood and told Travolta that he wanted to finance the latter s passion project, an adaptation of L. Ron Hubbard’s 1,050-page science fiction epic Battlefield Earth. Travolta had been trying to get this project off the ground for 15 years without success, even after becoming a cash machine with Pulp Fiction, Broken Arrow, Michael, The General’s Daughter, and Face/Off. Studios wanted nothing to do with a story about man-animals using 1,000-year-old airplanes to battle the kerbango -loving Psychlos who took over their planet and turned them into slaves. But by sheer force of will, Samaha was able to raise the money (more on that later), defer Travolta’s normal million paycheck, and secure the assistance of Warner Bros. to distribute the film.Two years later, on May 12th, 2000, Travolta’s -75 million budgeted (again, more on that later) Battlefield Earth opened in theaters and quickly disappeared as movies like Gladiator, Shanghai Noon, Mission: Impossible 2, and Road Trip took over screens. Two decades later, the legacy of Battlefield Earth is defined by cast and crew apologies, critical reviews that feature olympic-level insults, and a 3% Tomatometer score.With all of that said, on the 20th anniversary of the film s release, we look back and provide some insight into how Battlefield Earth came to be, and why it s almost charming in its scrappiness. You may have chosen to avoid the movie all these years because of its reputation, and while it would be a stretch to call it any good, it s definitely more fun than you might have been led to believe.IT WAS PRODUCED BY FRANCHISE PICTURES, THE COMPANY RESPONSIBLE FOR A SLEW OF ROTTEN MOVIES IN THE 2000s(Photo by Ken Hively/Getty Images)Between 1999 and 2007, Elie Samaha’s Franchise Pictures released a plethora of epically Rotten films that starred A-listers like John Travolta, Antonio Banderas, Sylvester Stallone, Jennifer Lopez, Kevin Coster, Kurt Russell, Lucy Liu, Wesley Snipes, and Bruce Willis. These movies include Battlefield Earth (3%), Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever (0%), Driven (14%), 3000 Miles to Graceland (14%), Get Carter (12%), and A Sound of Thunder (6%), which put the final nail in Franchise’s movie-producing coffin. The average Tomatometer score for the company s 19 films that received a wide theatrical release (600+ screens) was 25% Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever happens to be the worst-reviewed film on Rotten Tomatoes and they only made an average of million at the worldwide box office on million budgets.Samaha was known for indulging big stars and directors by financing the passion projects that no other studio would make (e.g. Battlefield Earth for Travolta). In an educational 2000 profile by the New York Times, Samaha admitted that he would “scavenge and dig and find the script or project that a star most wants to make; finance it overseas based on the A-list clout; then shoot it in Canada to save money.” He grabbed movies in turnaround, when movie studios no longer wanted to develop them, and sometimes was lucky enough to have the stars themselves invest their own money into the project (Travolta himself reportedly spent million when Battlefield Earth ran into financial issues). Actors and acclaimed directors were attracted because they were given complete creative control, albeit on a budget. The end results were rarely Fresh, with the exception of the Jack Nicholson vehicle The Pledge and the David Mamet-directed films Spartan and Heist.IT WASN T REALLY A BIG BUDGET BOMB (Photo by Warner Bros. courtesy Everett Collection) There are several ways to finance a movie. There are split-rights pacts, equity deals, tax incentives and pre-sales. And then there’s Elie Samaha’s way, which nobody understands. Variety, 2003While it’s easy to look at the -75 million budget and the subsequent million worldwide box office and assume Battlefield Earth was a box office flop, it’s a little more complicated than that. Director Roger Christian, who won a Best Art Direction Academy Award for his work on Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, wrote an open letter correcting many of the critics who called his independent little film a big budget failure. In reality, the production budget was somewhere around million, and the special effects budget was ~ million. The initial reports about it being a million-budgeted movie came about because Samaha and Franchise Pictures inflated the numbers to scam German-based Intertainment AG, the group responsible for coming up with 47% of the film s budget. During the ensuing lawsuit, in which Franchise was ordered to pay Intertainment 1 million, it was revealed that the budget was an estimated million (with Travolta receiving million of that).Cinematographer Giles Nuttgens has said that Battlefield Earth had the smallest lighting budget on any film I’ve ever done, and it’s rumored that Travolta had his personal chef cook for the crew because the food was so bad. Screenwriter Corey Mandell also went on record to say the movie had a “miniscule special effects budget.” In other words, while Battlefield Earth certainly wasn t successful at the box office, it wasn t the absolute blockbuster bomb it was made out to be, either.JOHN TRAVOLTA’S PERFORMANCE IS SO COMMITTED, IT S ADMIRABLE(Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures) My whole career has been based on trying something new. If I don t try something new, I worry. John Travolta, 2000It’s been 20 years since Battlefield Earth’s release, and John Travolta’s performance remains as weird and boisterous as it was in 2000 (and if Psychlos watch it in 3000, they will likely feel the same way). Originally, Travolta wanted to play the role of Jonnie Goodboy Tyler, the leader of the human resistance against the power-hungry Psychlos. However, as the years passed and studios declined the project, Travolta got older, so the role went to Barry Pepper, who, while less ridiculous, is just as committed.Travolta instead took the role of Terl, a 10-foot-tall Pyschlo who wants to leave Earth because he’s destined for greater things than drinking kerbango and policing dumb man-animals. Travolta has said there is no better villain than Terl, and his dedication to the role is on full display as he makes a meal out of every word, relishes every line ( Do you want lunch?! ), and seems incredibly pleased with himself (check out the laughing supercut). While his performance won multiple Razzie awards, it’s impressively committed and serves as a perfect example of what happens when an A-list talent delivers an overconfident performance with zero checks and balances.Prior to the film’s release, Travolta was the film’s biggest cheerleader, boldly stating that it was like Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope (1977), but better and the Schindler s List (1993) of science-fiction films. In an interview with The Daily Beast in 2014, he continued to defend the film and said he would do it all over again. His love stemmed from the fact that I had the power to do whatever I wanted, and I chose to do a book that I thought was worthy of making into a movie. It s a beautiful film. It s a good movie. Travolta’s longstanding defense of the film is admirable, and you can tell he loved every second he spent as a Rastafarian werewolf on four-foot-tall stilts.DESPITE ITS FLAWS, THE MOVIE HAS A LOT OF PERSONALITY(Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures)In 2010, co-writer J.D. Shapiro published an article titled “I penned the suckiest movie ever sorry!” for the New York Post. It’s a cheeky piece of writing that finishes with him saying, “Now, looking back at the movie with fresh eyes, I can’t help but be strangely proud of it. Because out of all the sucky movies, mine is the suckiest.” Shapiro was onto something, because part of Battlefield Earth’s charm is how odd it is.The film has an oppressive blue hue, the CGI makes Megashark vs. Giant Octopus look good, and the Psychlos move comically slow during the battle scenes (because the poor stunt actors could only move so fast on their giant stilts). The unnecessarily long 118-minute runtime tarnishes the experience, but John Travolta’s non-reaction to losing his arm when he’s tricked by Barry Pepper during their final fight (the Final Fights podcast episode about the brawl is lots of fun) is worth all the smelted gold in Fort Knox.Perhaps the most maligned aspect of the film is all the Dutch angles i.e. tilted camera angles that create an uneasy or paranoid atmosphere that director Roger Christian insisted on using to create a comic book look for the film. The uncomfortable angles have been the subject of a vast array of commentary (for fun, Google “Dutch Angle Battlefield Earth”), including by the late, great Roger Ebert, who wrote that Christian has learned from better films that directors sometimes tilt their cameras, but he has not learned why.” The comment certainly stings, but it’s not wrong, and all Christian wanted was to make the Psychlos look taller.KERBANGO IS THE MVP(Photo by Warner Bros. Pictures)The best moments in Battlefield Earth all feature the alcoholic beverage kerbango. We’re not encouraging the consumption of green alien booze; we’re just saying magic happens when it’s around. Whether it’s Ker (Forest Whitaker) smugly slurping kerbango (with a straw) when he thinks he’s pulled a fast one on Terl, or Terl cradling three growlers of it in his arms as he tells the bartender (whom he later decapitates) to put it on his non-existent tab, the mood and the actors seems to loosen up whenever the the mysterious green liquid is in play.The most memorable quote in the film happens when Chirk (Kelly Preston, Travolta s wife, in a quick cameo) tells Terl, I am going to make you as happy as a baby Psychlo on a straight diet of kerbango. The odd line, followed by a long CGI tongue and a saucy wiggle by Travolta, elicits a visceral mix of confusion and disgust, which perfectly captures what it s like to watch Battlefield Earth. Is Chirk implying that Terl will feel like a drunk baby? If so, is that a good thing? Does it matter? The answers are maybe, apparently, and not in the least.Battlefield Earth isn t commonly mentioned alongside The Room, Troll 2, or Batman Robin as an exemplar of so bad, it s good cinema it s usually considered merely bad but, with respect, it should be. It s just as ironically enjoyable, it s arguably weirder, and it s just so earnest that, despite its blatant shortcomings, you may be surprised to find yourself rooting for it.Where You Can Watch It NowFandangoNOW (rent/own), Amazon (rent/own), Google (rent/own), iTunes (rent/own), Vudu (rent/own)Battlefield Earth was released on May 12, 2000.
亚博官方 (Photo by Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic)For many years, the Super Bowl halftime show was treated pretty much like halftime at any other football game you might go to, only on a bigger scale — which is to say that while there was entertainment, it wasn t necessarily the type of thing you d go out of your way to watch. Before the NFL had to worry about counter-programming, halftime basically meant marching bands — a tradition that s continued into modern-day games, albeit with a good deal more spectacle (and platinum pop stars) included as part of the package. With Super Bowl LV looming large over the upcoming weekend — and a performance from headliner The Weeknd — we take a look back at the evolution of the Super Bowl halftime show, beginning with the 1970s.Up with PeopleThe Super Bowl s early halftime shows were dominated by marching bands, but they had some competition — most significantly courtesy of Up with People, the multi-cultural performance troupe that sprung out of the Moral Re-Armament movement of the 60s. Between 1976 and 1986, Up with People performed during four halftime shows, and added a fifth performance to their list with an appearance during the pre-game show for Super Bowl XXV in 1991. Trends have long since passed Up with People by, but they ll forever remain a fascinating footnote in Super Bowl history.Super Bowl XXIPerformers: By the time Up with People made their final halftime show appearance in 1986, it was clear the troupe was perceived as silly and old-fashioned. Naturally, the NFL went younger and hipper the following year by hiring George Burns and Mickey Rooney to topline the halftime entertainment for a salute to Hollywood s 100th anniversary, which featured the Grambling and USC marching bands, some high school drill teams, and a handful of Disney characters. Audience demographics were obviously not yet a key concern for the league.Critical Response: There s no denying that Burns and Rooney were a pair of Hollywood legends, but this halftime show was a spectacle past its prime when it aired, and it s widely derided today as one of the Super Bowl s worst.Verdict: RottenSuper Bowl XXIIPerformers: Radio City Music Hall served as the producer for Super Bowl XXII s halftime show, hiring Chubby Checker to perform with the Rockettes and the marching bands for San Diego State University and USC. Although Checker was enjoying something of a comeback at the time, thanks to his appearance with the Fat Boys on a cover of his signature hit The Twist, this show didn t exactly have its finger on the pulse of a generation.Critical Response: Describing a show that contained 44 Rockettes, 88 pianos, a 400-piece swing band and a jowly Chubby Checker, high atop a make-believe jukebox, singing the famous 1960s aria, Let s Twist Again, Like We Did Last Summer,' the Los Angeles Times snarked, the musicale represented the quiet, understated good taste that has become the hallmark of the Super Bowl. Verdict: RottenSuper Bowl XXIIIPerformers: Give the NFL this much: when you name a show Be Bop Bamboozled in 3-D, you re pretty much telling people up front what they can expect to get. Super Bowl XXIII s halftime entertainment was led by Elvis Presto, the nom de guerre adopted by a former Solid Gold dancer turned Elvis impersonator, and included 3D footage (viewable with glasses obtained courtesy of a tie-in promotion with Diet Coke) and what was billed as the world s biggest card trick. Critical Response: It was all meant to be very tongue-in-cheek. It’s all very much a lampoon, laughed producer Dan Witk
