Adjusted Score: 49454% Critics Consensus: Nicole Kidman's poised performance provides some measure of reclamation for Martha Gellhorn, but this trite historical melodrama reduces Ernest Hemingway and the era that the two war correspondents lived through into a broad caricature.

Oscar-winner Taika Waititi and his Jojo Rabbit producing partner Carthew Neal are back on the Indie Fresh List with a new hilarious rom-com about a pair of reluctant millennial parents. Matthew Lewis and New Zealand comedian Rose Matafeo play a long-term couple who become pregnant and choose to embark on a baby bucket list of things they want to do before they become boring parents. Matafeo, who previously starred in another Neal Waititi production, The Breaker Upperers, is a revelation in this hilarious star-making vehicle, and Lewis gives one of his most captivating performances as her earnest partner who, despite not carrying the child, seems to be the only one to grasp the reality of the imminent birth. We recently chatted with Lewis about working in his generation s push to delay parenthood, what s on his Baby Bucket List, and what it was like working with Matafeo.Jacqueline Coley for Rotten Tomatoes: How did you get involved with the project and why did you want to sign on?Matthew Lewis: I read the script before I even knew about anybody involved with it. I loved the story and thought it would really resonate with a lot of people. I especially enjoyed the gender reversal, in that typically it’s the men who are running away from responsibility and having a baby and want to selfishly get on with their lives and leave the woman to carry the burden both metaphorically and physically. This movie is the opposite; it’s Tim that is desperate to be a good dad, the kind of dad that he never had, whereas Zoe is trying to stay independent and is scared of having to move on to the next stage of her life and motherhood. Not to mention I really felt that I “got” Tim, I understood him. Sometimes you read a script, and even if you like it, it feels like it’s going to be an effort; you’re going to have to work to discover this character and create something. Other times, like this, it’s all there on the page. You just get it, and you know exactly who he is, who you want him to be, how he talks, etc. That’s always nice. They’re both fun in their own way, and it still works, but it’s a lot less work.Talk about Rose Matafeo. Why is she such a great person to fall in love with on screen?Rose is incredibly talented. People already know her for comedy, but she’s got a real instinct for drama, and it’s incredibly natural and charming, and being able to fuse both is not easy, but she just knows how to do it. She loves film and so has a keen understanding of its structure and what works and what doesn’t being a master of improv helps too. It’s impressive to see somebody instinctively understand how to be a leader both on-screen and off despite never having done it before.There has been a lot of talk about Millennials and Gen Zers waiting longer to have kids. Do you think this movie speaks to that?Yeah, absolutely. My generation and especially the one after, at least in the western world, live in this weird sort of limbo where so many simultaneously struggle to survive, to get a job, to earn a living wage, to get by, and yet also live in a world of opportunity, a world where you can fly around the world. You can live and work in other countries. Or at least that’s the idea we’re sold. We have more opportunity than any generation in history to do so many things the world is smaller than it’s ever been and there’s a worry that if you have kids and settle down before you’ve seen and done everything, then you’ve failed. You’ve wasted your life. But then also, nobody has any money and can’t pay their rent. I feel like so many people are putting off having kids in the hopes they can do all this stuff they’ve been promised they can do, but then they end up not being able to afford it, so they just go out drinking at the weekend. But you know what? That’s fine, isn’t it.Having kids, I’m sure, is a beautiful, wonderful thing, but you don’t have to. And anyone who chooses to is being entirely selfless, and that’s amazing. But it’s also not an indictment of a person to not want to. There’s f ing loads of humans on earth; we don’t really need more. But I guess the point is that we’re all led to believe that we can do all this cool stuff, but if we don’t and just have kids, then our life sucks and we’ve missed out. But a lot of (most?) people can’t even do those things anyway, but we because follow billionaires Instagrams we get annoyed we have kids instead of yachts. Or something? But yeah, this film is about that. Sort of.What would you put on your Baby Bucket List? I’ve been lucky that I had a few things I always wanted to do in my life and I’ve managed to do them. Not to sit here and chat about the cool s t I’ve been lucky enough to do, but I always wanted to swim with great whites, skydive, and bungee jump, and I’ve managed to do all three, the latter of which was achieved on this film! I’ve been trying to think in lockdown what I’ll do when we’re allowed out. It’s quite basic: Go out and see people. Go to a pub. An arcade? Play football. I’ve always wanted to go watch England play Ashes cricket in Australia. I suppose that’s a dream. Yeah, I could try to do that. I want to see Leeds play in the Premier League. They’re back there now played 20-odd games and nobody can go. That’s rubbish, so I’d like to go watch them when we’re allowed.Baby Done is available to rent or buy on VOD.

“I remember looking out on the deck over all of Hollywood and feeling simultaneously on top of the world and never more isolated and alone. That was the beginning of the character for me.”“At the same time, I had just moved to LA. I was living in this house up in the Hollywood Hills that was like a friend of a friend of a friend s house. I somehow was paying like 0 a month to live in this glorified closet in a beautiful mansion. I don t quite know how it was arranged, but I remember there were rumors at the time, the rumors amongst the housemates, that it was the third-highest elevated house in all of Hollywood. That Johnny Depp had lived there once… It was on the top of this hill, up this very windy road that I immediately got into a car accident on. Then I didn t have a car, and I was stranded up on this house. I remember looking out on the deck over all of Hollywood and feeling simultaneously on top of the world and never more isolated and alone. That was the beginning of the character for me, the idea of this guy who was living in a house like this who d had every opportunity for success but still couldn t find a way to be happy.”“I really liked the sad episodes of The Simpsons, like ‘Lisa s Substitute’ or ‘Marge Be Not Proud’… That was kind of the tone I was going for.” I’d be lying if I said I was not inspired [by The Simpsons], if I tried to play it cool like, ‘Oh, what’s that show? Never heard of it.’ That was a huge influence on me growing up. There s the sense of the sensibility, the sense of humor. I particularly really liked the sad episodes of The Simpsons, the more emotional episodes like ‘Lisa s Substitute’ or ‘Marge Be Not Proud.’ I remember always loving those and wishing they were all like that, and so that was kind of the tone I was going for early on with BoJack because I want it to feel like a sad episode of The Simpsons. I think what s so great about those episodes in particular is they don t sacrifice jokes for emotion – they are very funny and full of great gags, but they are also very moving as well and very melancholy. Will Arnett as BoJack in season 1. (Photo by © Netflix)“By the end of the first season, they d be going, ‘Oh my God, why do I have feelings? Where did this come from?’”“I pitched it as a show that is going to start very fun and goofy, like most adult animated shows, but by the end of its first season, it s going to turn into more of a dramedy along the lines of a live-action show, like a Girls or even Mad Men, which felt a little more unprecedented in the world of animation, to indulge that much in seriousness and emotion. We were going to trick people by making people think it was a typical animated sitcom, but actually by the end of the season, they d be going, ‘Oh my God, why do I have feelings? Where did this come from?’. I always assumed the audience would join us on this ride and go from, ‘Oh, this is fun. This is silly,’ to, ‘Oh my God, I have feelings.’ It never occurred to me that some people might see the silly part and go, ‘Not for me,’ click and not even know that the rest of the show turns into this totally other thing. I think if I were doing it again, I might try to include more clues at the beginning that this was a more serious show. Even then, I think it s hard to do because there are clues in the beginning: In the first episode of the show, BoJack and Diane have like a two-minute conversation on the fleeting nature of happiness, right? That s the thing that everybody loved about the first season, that it did that change and that it was both of those things, that it wasn t just one or the other. When we were working on season two, I definitely felt the confidence of, ‘Let s go further in that direction because that s what the show is. That s the sweet spot.’”“People loved the Grouplove song, and people loved the Patrick Carney/Ralph Carney song. At the end of the day, we thought, ‘Could we do both?’”“Andy Gowan is our music supervisor, and he kind of put the word out to a bunch of different bands and a bunch of different artists, ‘Hey, here s a new show. We re looking for some music.’ We got a lot of responses, and the two that kind of rose to the top for me were this very playful, sing-songy, Grouplove song and this very heavy, spooky Patrick Carney and Ralph Carney song. I remember there was a lot of debate over which song are we going to use, and then as we kept watching, director Mike Roberts put together this incredible sequence of BoJack going through his day, and we played different songs over it to see what felt right. We d bring in people from the crew, we did focus groups, and it was pretty evenly split. People loved the Grouplove song, and people loved the Patrick Carney/Ralph Carney song. At the end of the day, we thought, ‘Could we do both?’ We ended up using the Patrick Carney, Ralph Carney song at the beginning… I think it is a little bit of a hint of what s to come in the show. It does make you think like, ‘Oh, this feels a little more dramatic than like a typical animated, fun sitcom.’ Then I think the Grouplove song [used in the end credits], kind of the opposite, is so fun and bright, and at the end of some of our episodes, which are really downer endings, it almost feels like an ironic poke in the ribs. I ve really enjoyed using that song as juxtaposition against all these different endings. Essentially as the show has gotten more and more serious, it s kind of revealed itself to have new layers to it.”Will Arnett (BoJack), Raphael Bob-Waksberg, Paul F. Tompkins (Mr. Peanutbutter), Alison Brie (Diane), and Aaron Paul (Todd). (Photo by Eric Charbonneau/Netflix) As soon as I saw Will Arnett s name, I was like, ‘Oh my God, yes, that s the guy,’ because he s so funny, but there s also a darkness to him. “The character of BoJack was not written with Will in mind. I wasn t thinking, ‘You know who d be a great, washed up, sad, lonely actor? Will Arnett.’ It was written for this drawing that Lisa Hanawalt had drawn of this horse guy. Then once we were developing the project, we thought, ‘Before we pitch this around, it might help to have some talent attached.’ Linda Lamontagne is our casting director, and she kind of drew up a list: ‘Here are some actors I think would be right for this.’ As soon as I saw Will Arnett s name, I was like, ‘Oh my God, yes, that s the guy,’ because he s so funny, but there s also a darkness to him. I feel like in his gravelly performance, you feel like he s lived a life, and there s a sadness lurking underneath there. Again, he s so funny. I mean, there are lines that we have made BoJack say that I would not have the chutzpah to give to an actor because they re so dopey, but that I knew that Will Arnett could pull them off. I remember in the writer s room, like looking at a line in a script being like, ‘Are we really going to keep this line in? This is so stupid.’ Then we do the table read, and Will Arnett reads it, and it s the funniest thing you ve ever heard. You re like, ‘Oh my God, he took our dumbest stuff, and he spun it into gold.’”“Who would be the funniest person to be judging this booty competition reality show? What if it s Felicity Huffman?”“We ve had a lot of incredible guest stars over the years. Usually, it just happens because we write a script, and then we think, ‘Who would be a good person for this script? Who would be the funniest person to be judging this booty competition reality show? What if it s Felicity Huffman?’ Then we go to them, and they usually say ‘yes,’ which is crazy. Occasionally, we ll hear something like, ‘Oh, this person s a big fan of the show.’ Then we ll keep them in mind if there s a part for them to play.When anybody likes the show, it s a shock and a delight to me, and it feels great, and it makes me suspicious that they re tricking me. Then when we ve had people come on the show or people that I ve seen, who have been heroes of mine, tell me they re fans of the show, that completely blows my mind. To have Weird Al Yankovic, who I grew up with, come be a guest star on the show and tell me personally that he really loves the show, my brain can t process that. I don t know how to take that kind of compliment, and I quickly change the subject to something else.”Amy Sedaris is Princess Carolyn. (Photo by © Netflix)“We wanted to, through Princess Carolyn, explore what is it like being another person in this person s life? That episode, ‘Say anything,’ has the first really sad ending of the series.”“I think a big turning point for our show happens in that first season at really episode seven and episode eight, which are called ‘Say Anything’ and ‘The Telescope.’ ‘Say Anything’ is episode seven, and that s an episode that s entirely told from Princess Carolyn s perspective. Up to that moment, almost everything that s happened in the show has been through BoJack[’s perspective]. A few episodes had small B stories or C stories, but they re really heavy A-story episodes. Then to switch it and be like, ‘No, BoJack is the side story this time, it’s really focused on this other character,’ felt like a bit of a departure for us. BoJack kind of falls into some sort of wreckage and steps out and like dusts himself off and wanders into the next misadventure. We wanted to, through Princess Carolyn, explore what is it like being another person in this person s life? What is it like attaching yourself to this kind of toxicity? That episode, ‘Say Anything,’ has the first really sad ending of the series. Everything up until then had been pretty light – or maybe we d end on like a dark kind of joke – but ‘Say Anything’ really ends on a serious, kind of sad moment with this lonely character. That for me was a real sign of where we wanted to go.”

uccess (which included five Golden Globe and Emmy nominations and two Globe wins), he would soon find greater success as a director. After bursting onto the directing scene with This Is Spinal Tap, Reiner would follow it with The Sure Thing, Stand By Me, The Princess Bride, When Harry Met Sally…, Misery, and A Few Good Men.You read that list correctly: Rob Reiner’s first seven films as a director were, in order, a hilarious, genre-defining mockumentary; an 80s teen romp; a classic coming-of-age film; a beloved fantasy adventure; one of the greatest rom-coms of all time; a terrifying thriller; and an oft-quoted military courtroom drama. Yes, the guy who directed This Is Spinal Tap also directed this, this, and this.The crazy part is that all of these were critical and commercial successes. These seven movies average 90% on the Tomatometer, and This Is Spinal Tap kicked the whole thing off.Spinal Tap Is Now a Real (and Successful) Band(Photo by NBC/Getty Images)Unlike every other popular music group that received the rockumentary treatment, Spinal Tap was a fake band that became a real rock group.In the film, Spinal Tap was a washed-up group of has-beens that was “treading water in a sea of retarded sexuality and bad poetry,” but as a real-life band, their three albums have all charted in the Top 200 (with the latter two of the three making it into the Top 100), and they ve been called “top-notch and striking the right balance between parody and real rock roll.”And while, in the mockumentary, Tap played second fiddle to a puppet show, the band has since performed in front of a sellout crowd at Wembley Stadium, played Glastonbury Fest, and headlined a full U.S. tour.In fact, on their second real-life album, Break Like The Wind, Tap played alongside rock geniuses like Jeff Beck, Joe Satriani, Slash, and Waddy Wachtel, as well as Cher. Because who wouldn t want to play with Cher?And the reason why they’ve had such acclaim and success as a real band? Well Their Songs Are ExcellentWhile all the jokes and improvisational shenanigans in the film are inspired, perhaps the most impressive thing about it is the music itself.In fact, the music might be the one thing that doesn t quite fit the narrative of the movie; Spinal Tap s songs are simply too good to believe they re washed up. They span several decades and cover multiple genres, styles, and sensibilities, and they work both as a parody of and celebration of popular music, as well as a complex, well-written, fully functional rock compilation, regardless of the humor.“Gimme Some Money” perfectly mimics early Beatles songs like Money (That’s What I Want) and Do You Want to Know A Secret, but its skiffle-inspired sound, catchy lyrics, and a great Nigel Tufnel solo make it a tight nod to 60s rock and roll and a great marker to show when the Tap got their start. They even went psychedelic on the late- 60s parody song (Listen to the) Flower People and the prog rock song Stonehenge. And while the inappropriate sex joke that forms the basis of Tonight I’m Going to Rock You Tonight admittedly hasn t aged very well, it still boasts a rocking guitar solo, a killer hook, and powerful drums.In fact, the whole Spinal Tap discography is full of incredible songs that perfectly straddle that line between parody and real, excellent rock music. It’s difficult to make a lasting music parody, but it’s even more difficult to make music that stands on its own. It’s also difficult to make a comedy film, but it’s even more difficult to make one that has been beloved and celebrated for 35 years.This Is Spinal Tap opened on March 2, 1984.Like this?

Renee Zellweger is back and we couldn t be happier. This weekend in Telluride attendees will get their first glimpse of Zellweger as the tragic starlet Judy Garland. Telluride is also honoring the actress with a tribute that will run before several screenings of Judy. After a string of sometimes downright nasty media coverage over the last few years, many are thrilled that Zellweger has reemerged better than ever in this second act of her storied career with two very different projects. Earlier this year she played a femme fatale Gordan Gecko type in Netflix s What/If, and this week at Telluride we see her take on one of the world s most beloved singer-actresses – a role which has already put her in the conversation for Best Actress after the first trailer dropped.Ford v Ferrari (2019) 92%A world premiere for James Mangold s Ford v. Ferrari is quite the statement for Telluride. As the fall lineup becomes increasingly more competitive, films with mega-watt stars and masses of buzz are still jockeying with similar titles at just about every festival stop. Perhaps this is why the Matt Damon/Christian Bale drama chose to skip the Venice Film Festival (a logical stop most years) and come straight to Telluride; the move makes the racing movie one of the biggest films of the program and one of the hottest tickets. The film chronicles the true-life tale of how the Ford Motor Company worked tirelessly to build a car that could beat racing powerhouse Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans race in 1966. Damon plays famed Ford car designer Carroll Shelby and Bale is behind the wheel as racing legend Ken Miles. If we trust the first trailer, this could well be a funny, fast-paced adventure and a perfect awards launch pad or Mangold, Damon, and Bale.Marriage Story (2019) 94%
777电玩城 hat show’s producers is running the Dirty John series.“There’s this fun, twisted fairy-tale aspect to the story,” Alexandra Cunningham tells Rotten Tomatoes, explaining that her adaptation doesn’t just add visuals, but is actually able to expand on the emotions of the story by dramatizing it. “A lot of things we’ve maintained — the spine and the scaffolding of the story — because they are so compelling and true and heart-wrenching. We put a lot more flesh on some bones.”For instance, Cunningham says she was able to address a concern people who listened to the podcast or read the Los Angeles Times articles had raised: Many listeners thought Debra Newell was “an incredibly stupid woman” for falling for Meehan’s exploitative schtick in the first place.Casting Britton as Newell certainly helped Cunningham combat this perception, and she framed the events in ways that should make viewers more empathetic towards the main character. She was also able to add some more depth to Meehan, who was not a participant in the podcast for reasons that are obvious to anybody who listened to the end. The show can follow Meehan as he goes about whatever dodgy business he was involved in, whereas the non-fiction podcast had to keep the speculation at a distance.“It gives you an even more complete picture of this man and commits you more emotionally than [you would have been] just [reading] the descriptions of what he did in the podcast, since you’re sort of watching them along with him,” Cunningham says. “It’s a point-of-view perspective that the podcast couldn’t do.”Up and Vanished Continues the InvestigationTrue crime might be podcasting’s leading genre, but don’t forget that it’s also been a TV mainstay for decades, dramatized or not. The recent Up and Vanished special, about Tara Grinstead, a teacher and former beauty queen who went missing in Georgia three years ago, is as much a sequel to host Payne Lindsey’s original podcast as it is an adaptation.“Both mediums rely on good storytelling,” Lindsey says of the difference between podcasts and TV. “Even though a podcast is strictly audio, listeners develop their own visuals for the story. It’s kind of a more intimate experience, and sometimes I think it actually makes the audience feel closer to the people involved.”The podcast medium offered Lindsey one thing that TV doesn’t. Because podcasts are typically cheaper and faster to make than TV shows, Up and Vanished was able to generate renewed interest in the case that led to a crucial break in real time.“That would have been a lot harder to do with a television crew on the ground, following a production schedule, along with all of the other elements that make a TV show,” he says.The Future(Photo by Syed family/HBO)The three November podcast-inspired shows are quite different from another, revealing the fundamental wrinkle in any discussion about the future of podcasts on TV: It’s a medium, not single genre.“There’s a spread of genre that makes this a little hard to talk about efficiently,” journalist Quah says.The scripted drama–turned–prestige TV Homecoming is a very different beast than the two true-crime podcasts, even if Dirty John turned from non-fiction to scripted when Bravo dramatized it. There are also improvisational comedy podcasts like Comedy Bang Bang and My Brother My Brother and Me, both of which did their audio counterparts proud on TV (and both of which continue in podcast form, though not on television). Then there are the talk shows-with-a-twist, like Desus Mero and even Bill Simmons’ Any Given Wednesday (to a certain extent), which launched as a result of the hosts’ popular podcasts.There are even more TV adaptations in the works: Crimetown, a non-fiction podcast about corruption in Providence, Rhode Island, is coming to FX, as is the spooky Welcome to the Night Vale. Fantastically popular podcast Serial is getting an HBO documentary, The Case Against Adnan Syed (pictured above), but a scripted television adaptation of the murder-mystery by The LEGO Movie’s Chris Lord and Phil Miller has been in development hell since 2015. Limetown, a scripted horror podcast, will hit Facebook Watch and star Jessica Biel.Some of these shows will be good certainly. Others, maybe not so much. That they began their lives as podcasts doesn’t give them an inherent advantage or disadvantage over any other type of adaptation, aside from maybe being more buzzworthy than other series.“Isn’t it the story that’s more crucial? You wouldn’t say books make good movies — it depends on the book,” Homecoming’s Bloomberg says.Podcasts have a lot of things going for them: They’re cheap to make, generally flexible productions to undertake, and can connect with large audiences in an intimate way. They’re not a guarantee for success on TV, but the right podcast with the right creative team can, ideally, become something new — something that’s more than just a podcast with pictures.“The fundamental thing,” Quah says, “is to create something native to the experience.”
One of the biggest movie franchises on the planet expands outward with Fast Furious Presents: Hobbs Shaw. 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. 获得游戏版号是一款游戏问世的充分条件。只有取得了版号，游戏才能向玩家们开启测试。在今年的2月9日，国家新闻出版署公布了最新的网络游戏审批信息，《英雄联盟手游》也终于取得了游戏版号，这也就意味着英雄联盟手游即将问世，游戏已经可以开始内测。但英雄联盟手游早已在2020年10月底在日本、韩国、印尼等十二个国家开放测试并拓展玩家，说明游戏的大框架已经构建完成，但迟迟不在国内上线，我想是因为还没取得国内的版号。四个月的等待后，一直到今年2月才如愿拿到了版号，正式与中国玩家见面。
