"Arthur" fancast

2020.07.05 04:03 moviesounds101 "Arthur" fancast

So, I made a fancast for a live-action movie adaptation of the popular book series and PBS Kids show "Arthur". I have a whole pitch in my mind, but we're focusing on the cast here.

2018.10.11 16:09 ionised The Predator (2018) [science-horror/monster]

Original post
a review by the Crow.

The Hunt Has [D]Evolved

PLOT

Set in the present day, The Predator begins with a dogfight. In space.
Specifically, it’s a dogfight between two Yautja (Predator) ships. The one being pursued launches some form of wormhole technology, and transports itself to Earth, leaving the pursuer in its dust. It crashes, but not before its pilot makes good its escape via an escape pod.
Thereafter, we cut to Quinn McKenna (Boyd Holbrook), a sniper on a hostage retrieval mission in Mexico. Their mission is interrupted, just as Quinn takes out his first target, by the arrival of the escape pod. As Quinn and his unit investigate the crash site, picking up Predator tech along the way (I guess the pilot left a door open or something), they are set upon by the Yautja hunter, who has already taken out one man (quick work). Quinn manages to incapacitate the hunter with one of its own weapons before exiting the scene. As he runs off with some of the tech he has acquired — leaving the hunter unconscious at the scene — U.S. Government official Will Traeger (Sterling K. Brown) arrives to clean up the scene.
Quinn arranges to have the tech he has stolen sent to his family in the States before Traeger picks him up in connection to the incident in the forest, and it is at this point that we are introduced to some of our other characters. We meet his son Rory (Jacob Tremblay), a child with some form of autism, who also displays a degree of savant syndrome, his ex-wife Emily (Yvonne Strahovski), and Dr Casey Bracket (Olivia Munn) — an evolutionary biologist who is recruited by the government and told about the Predators.
Quinn is questioned, and then put on a bus with some other government detainees, including Coyle (Keegan-Michael Key), Baxley (Thomas Jane), Nettles (Augusto Aguilera), Gaylord “Nebraska” Williams (Trevante Rhodes), and Lynch (Alfie Allen) — all of whom are troubled soldiers who have found themselves in the government’s bad books.
Dr Bracket is brought to a research facility where the wounded Yautja is being inspected. She meets Sean Keyes (Jake Busey), the son of Agent Peter Keyes (a character played by his father, Gary Busey) from Predator 2. She — in an inversion of the usual trope — calls the Yautja a “beautiful [BLEEP]”, following a lame joke about the “Predator” moniker. And it’s here that we begin to see where the plot is going.

EXECUTION

Fred Dekker and Shane Black have made some… interesting choices as far as the story goes. Choices I find quite unnecessary. Like the Xenomorph, I find that the mystery that surrounds the Yautja is central to the character. And that is where I must clarify something. The very name “Yautja” is a problem in itself. While I like referring to the creatures as such (there are only so many times I can say “Predator”, instead), simply keeping them unnamed, or monikered, would have been a far stronger choice to really elevate the creatures. No lore. No home planet (they call it “Predator World” — I wish I was joking). Just suggestion and innuendo would have worked just fine.
Predators handled this aspect of the lore somewhat well, and thanks to that — as far as I’m concerned — only the first two Predator movies, as well as Predators have been true canon so far. And now, along comes The Predator (could someone be a little more creative with the titles, please? Just don’t call it “Pred4tor“.), and changes oh-so much. Now, we have the Yautja talking (talking!) to our characters. We get to understand their “rationale” for coming here, we get to see more of their technology than ever before, and it’s all a lot to take in.
(In addition, it also suggests that least the first Alien vs Predator movie might be canonical through an easter egg. But I’m going to ignore that far as canon is concerned.)
I understand what Mr Black had set out to do. He had intended to change the face of the series and give it grounds for a strong push into the future. And has he succeeded? Well, yes and no — but more no than yes. Yes, there is now groundwork for stories to be told moving ahead. But none of it was really necessary. Instead of a science fiction action thriller about humans trying to make sense of — and trying to combat — an unknowable enemy whose motivations we barely understand, we now have a story that goes full-tilt into military SF territory. And that erases the entire aura of the titular creatures.
Now, they are naught but Klingons. And if you think about it, that analogy couldn’t be more apt. One could easily rework these movies into a story about early first contact with the warrior species from Star Trek.
One aspect that the movie shines in is the interplay between the characters. Some are a little more forgettable than others, but on the whole, their interactions feel very natural, “loony” as they may be. This is a feature that appears in much of Mr Black’s work, and I must applaud his team and the actors for the job that they did. But it simply isn’t enough to save the final product.
The trailers had me a little worried that the comedy might detract from the movie as a whole, but it doesn’t. It actually fits the tone of the movie quite well. Thomas Jane as Baxley was the biggest surprise of the lot. He nailed a character I’ve never seen him play the like of, and was by far the most “fun” character, embracing the cringe written into him. Sterling K. Brown was another surprise, playing a character who takes up the mantle of “slightly evil government bureaucrat” with ease. And even though I usually despise child characters like Rory (see: Iron Man 3), his character fit quite well into the movie, and I’m happy to see the angle work out.
Olivia Munn’s Dr Bracket was an outlier. Is she a scientist? Is she Lara Croft: Tomb Raider? And what the hell was up with her connection to the “space dog”? She left me somewhat confused, I can’t blame Munn for the performance. She did the job she was given. It was just a role that was a bit all over the place.
McKenna — on the other hand — is a dud. I’ve only ever seen Boyd Holbrook in Logan, so I can’t speak to his acting capabilites, but his character is both uninteresting and uninspired. He’s a sniper who’s a bit of a jerk. And he’s tough. That’s about all there is to him. And as I’ve stated before: if your protagonist is that forgettable, your movie has a major problem (and who in their right mind would disagree?).
The “new Predator” is just plain weird. This new-and-improved model comes with a form of subdermal armour and all sorts of in-built prosthetics which give him all the benefits of the traditional “hunter gear”, without the need to put them on.
And of course: because the movie has to amp things up, our two Yautja must fight. And fight, they do. You’d imagine it would be closer to the end, but it’s a lot sooner into the movie than even I expected.
The visuals — for the most part — are alright. Nothing special, but nothing drab, either. The movie downplays its effects unlike most movies of its kind (in a similar vein to Predators), but still manages to have a few moments which feel very out of place. Maybe bringing the titular predators to suburbia wasn’t the best of choices. There’s something about flashy CGI set against a backdrop of the next-town-over that just doesn’t mesh well together. Like I said: the effects themselves aren’t bad, it’s just that something seems lost in editing. It’s not terrible — it’s just… middling.
The scenes with Rory stick out like a sore thumb, as do the scenes of the predators in ‘human spaces’. The new predator is such a far cry from the iconic 80s monster that it almost feels out of place. Everything is there: the arms, the legs, the mandibles — everything. But it just looks so bizarre, especially considering it spends most of the movie effectively naked.
Its (the new predator’s) base motivations are understandable: it’s part of a sort-of “Space Alien Insterstellar Criminal Polic Organisation” (SINTERPOL, anyone?), and it’s here to stop the first Yautja from doing… something, and to blow its crashed ship up so that the humans are unable to acquire more any technology from it. But as the movie goes on, it gains a further motivation — and it’s dumb as rocks. The whole speil the movie explores in regards to human evolution and global warming hit some of the right marks on the surface, but end up being played to some very silly lengths. And no. I’m not forgiving the movie for allowing the newer, larger Yautja to speak to humans. Its lines were terrible as well, to boot.
The choice to play the initial Yautja off as Predator-Prometheus is downright stupid, in my opinion. The character goes on a life-threatening mission to provide humans with a “gift” to aid them against an impending Yautja invasion — which is built on shaky ground as-is; see: the global warming lines in the movie. Things are terrible, but not as terrible as the movie makes it out to be. If this was set a few decades in the future, I might’ve had an easier time buying it.
And just to ask the question: if the Yautja are so certain about the impending extinction of humanity, why is the rogue Yautja even bothering to deliver this “gift” to humanity? It’s gift has nothing to do with turning back the clock on global warming. Surely that’s the more pressing issue as far as humanity is concerned in the story.

CLOSING THOUGHTS

I didn’t enjoy The Predator. The movie is just one huge missed opportunity. There is a movie that could have been salvaged from the premise and themes explored, here, but at the end of the day, it isn’t good as it stands. Even the action seems lacklustre, and this is a Predator movie we’re talking about. It’s not all that great-looking, and while the humour and character-interplay is solid, there is a very shaky plot for everyone to work with. The lead is boring, and so are the Yautja of the movie.
Thomas Jane steals the show during his brief scenes, and I’m not really sure what to even make of the “space dog” and the subplot (…?) revolving around it. The kid wasn’t as annoying as I believed he would be, but his character was just a simple plot point. And that, I found annoying. The movie features far too many questionable scenes — such as the build-up to the conflict between McKenna and Traeger — that go nowhere and leave Chekov’s gun unfired. That’s just plain bad writing, or it was something that was lost during the rush to construct a new third act. All-in-all: shoddy work.
I left out all mention of the final scenes of the movie, but I will say this: it’s absolute garbage. I have no idea how this sequence even made it into the movie, but whoever okay-ed it needs to be fired. Whatever they were attempting to set up, I hope it never comes to fruition, since it will certainly wreck the franchise. Two more points:
  • Power to Olivia Munn for standing up for what she thought was right.
  • It was disheartening to hear how tired Mr Black was in the weeks leading up to the release of The Predator. If he wants to step away from the green-screen and CGI-fests to concentrate on smaller movies: I’m all for it. That’s where he shines. I’d rather have him focus on what he’s good at rather than these sorts of projects (yes: I disliked Iron Man 3 as well).
Hopefully, some day, the Predator franchise is revitalised. I’d like to see a follow-up to Predators, actually, but I doubt I will. Let’s just not continue the series off the back of this movie.
— Crow out.

FINAL RATINGS:

  • THE CROW: 1.5/10
  • THE AZURE-WINGED MAGPIE: 4/10

2018.09.15 04:25 Crazy_Rico The Predator 2018 - All Deaths SPOILERS

Haven't seen a single person able to accurately articulate all the deaths in the movie, which is something I love reading about. So here you go, with a little context where possible.

Spoilers, obviously.
The movie starts with McKenna (Boyd Holbrook) and two soldiers on his team taking out drug lords. He executes one drug enforcer with a quick, bloody sniper shot as the OG Predator's escape pod crashes nearby. One of his fellow soldiers is strung up by the OG Predator, his face all mangled. His other soldier is then shot directly through the chest with a plasma cannon. McKenna finds a Predator gauntlet in the pod, puts it on, and manages to wound/knock out OG Predator, which slices his hanging buddy in half, blood and guts dripping on the camouflaged, knocked out Predator.
There isn't another death until OG Predator escapes the lab confines, where he brutalizes at least ten unnamed doctors and soldiers. Some highlights include him throwing a scalpel into a guys head, clawing another guys face off, and picking up an SMG out of necessity to shoot some soldiers. Sean Keyes (Jake Busey) is shown standing, injured in the abdomen, urging Dr. Bracket (Olivia Munn) not to let OG Predator escape. He's not seen again. Essentially a cameo.
OG Predator gets into an Army convoy truck and slices and dices several nameless soldiers in the back of the truck. Limbs and blood everywhere.
Rory (Jacob Tremblay) accidentally gets the OG Predator gear from his fathers mail package. His father mailed it to a PO Box as alien evidence, but the PO Box was past due, resulting in the box of Predator gear being delivered to his home. Rory has Aspergers, and being on the spectrum helps him understand the Predator tech. He wears the face helmet for Halloween. When a tweaker throws something at him, the helmet defends itself and blows the tweaker and his house to bits.
One of the Predator Hounds dies when McKenna sticks a grenade launcher in its mouth. The grenade then blows it up. The other Predator Hound is shot in the head, which kinda nerfs it, keeping it low key. It pops up following the group every now and then, but isn't aggressive.
Super Predator beats the hell out of OG Predator, punches its face in, then rips it's head and spine out. I think it's important to note that OG Predator was never on Earth to hunt, and Super Predator really only hunts as a challenge at the end.
Super Predator shows up to McKenna's house looking for the gear Rory has, and slices up two agents with his massive arm blade.
McKenna and Dr. Bracket kill a couple of villain agents when escaping from their grasp at a farmhouse.
McKenna shoots Traeger's (Sterling K. Brown) right hand man right in the eye with a high powered tranq gun, killing him.
Several bad guy agents are killed by The Loonies in a shootout outside the crashed OG predator ship.
Lynch (Alfie Allen) is taking position as overwatch on the canyon where the OG Predator ship crashed. Super predator sneaks up on him and blows his arm off. He isn't finished off on screen, just left screaming and shooting off a flare to alert the others. Definitely dead though.
Super Predator launches a spear rope through a bad guy agent, the line going taut enough to decapitate three other agents in a jeep as the drive through it.
The Finale is basically the Super Predator deciding to hunt everyone for amusement and giving them a head start. Like the original movies but compressed into the last 20 minutes. Super bloody, but super rushed.
A bad guy soldier throws a Predator smart blade that returns and cuts his hand off. Traeger executes him to keep him from screaming.
Super Predator ropes up a guy and gnaws his head off as Traeger watches, shocked and amazed.
Super predator launches his wrist blade and cuts a bad guy soldier in half.
All the soldiers then work to trap the Super Predator and a bunch of people get taken out.
Traeger has a small, shoulder-mounted predator cannon that he's using against the Super Predator. When Dr. Bracket calls his name, he turns his head to look at her, and the cannon goes off. It blows his head clean off, very quick, very bloody. It's definitely played for shock and laughs, but it's pretty quick.
Baxley (Thomas Jane) is launched up by the Super Predator and impaled through the stomach on a sharp tree branch. Coyle (Keegan Michael Key) is disemboweled, guts hanging out as he sits back. Both are nearly dead, but because they are good friends, they aim their guns at each other to finish each other off. Actually a somewhat sweet and dark character payoff.
McKenna, Nebraska (Trevante Rhodes, a badass in this movie) and Nettles (Augusto Aguilera) all jump on the Super Predator ship after it takes Rory and goes to take off. As the ship's force field slowly engages over the ship, McKenna slides under it, Nebraska jumps over it, and Nettles is caught, cutting off his legs and sending him flying off the ship to his death.
Nebraska, wounded from the force field, sacrifices himself by jumping and shooting into the ships turbine engine, helping bring it down.
After the ship crashes, McKenna and Dr. Bracket square off against the Super Predator. Rory re-engages the ships force field to chop the Super Predator's arm off. McKenna eventually grabs it, attaching a bomb to the blade launcher, and fires it at the Super Predator, blowing it's limbs off and gravely wounding it.
When McKenna walks up and asks "What the hell are you?" Super Predator starts to say something, but McKenna tells it to shut the fuck up and unloads his handgun into its face.
Yes, the last ending feels very tacked on, with a Predator Killer armor suit being shown as something OG Predator was gifting us to help fight the Super Predators and even the odds. Doesn't hit as much as it thinks it does.
For what it's worth, I really enjoyed The Predator. It's really shaggy, feeling rushed in many places with a couple of gigantic plot holes. That being said, the character humor worked really well for me, and the kills are pretty gnarly. It's definitely pieced together, but I enjoyed the action, the aliens, and the jokes.

2018.09.14 21:00 I_Am_Sam13 IJW: The Predator (2018)

Hollywood never lets a good thing die, and despite killing franchise and franchise, continues to attempt restarting every well-known character in existence. This time, it’s the dreadlocks sporting hunter from outer space, the Predator, back in the hands of a talented filmmaker. And yet the result winds up being the worst possible outcome.
From the outer reaches of space to the small-town streets of suburbia, the hunt comes home. The universe's most lethal hunters are stronger, smarter and deadlier than ever before, having genetically upgraded themselves with DNA from other species. When a boy (Jacob Tremblay) accidentally triggers their return to Earth, only a ragtag crew of ex-soldiers and an evolutionary biologist (Olivia Munn) can prevent the end of the human race.
At the heart of this attempted rejuvenation of a fairly dormant franchise one of cinema’s finest creature creations in the Predator itself. And luckily for the film, it’s hard to make said creature uncool, however close the film may come to actually doing so. It’s still as violent as ever, if not a little more so, hunting down helpless humans in increasingly brutal and inventive ways.
The titular monster is where the positives end unfortunately, as even some of the better performances are lost in a disconnected narrative. Jacob Tremblay gives the most objectively good performance and deserves a far better film than this one for his work. Trevante Rhodes is likable in his role, but it’s hard to name a single trait about his character outside of baseline backstory moments.
The comedy is hit-or-miss for a majority of the runtime, feeling more like an imitation of Shane Black than anything remotely close to the clever writing he is known for. It lacks any sort of wit or depth, opting for surface level, broad stroke comedy that just isn’t Black’s style. Some poor decisions were made throughout the process, whether it be on set or in post, that are obviously going in the wrong direction, but the film doubles down on them and what’s left is a mess.
The Predator fails to generate any sort of enthusiasm for this franchise, becoming just another failed reboot that will inevitably be forgotten until they try again in another decade. The ensemble cast is full of familiar faces, but none of them get a lick of anything interesting to do besides run or fight an eight-foot alien. Of course, the Predator itself is fun to watch, and they are creative with some of the hunting, but it’s not enough to make up for the overall lack of anything substantial. How about we just let the Xenomorph kill the Predator for good and just call it a day on this franchise.

2018.09.10 19:56 EnderFrith What are the laws that prevent movie studios from running background checks on actors? How does the sex offender registry come into play?

So I've been trying to follow the whole situation with Olivia Munn and Predator (2018). The bit of information that I keep seeing is that there are "legal limitations that impede studios from running background checks on actors" .
On one other subreddit, the question was asked and one of the answers was that it relates to recent EEO recommendations that are supposed to prevent past offenders from being automatically screened out of the process. But I would think that type of guideline would have to do with things like drug charges or physical (non-sexual) assault.
Where does the sex offender registry laws play into this? The actor in question pled guilty to luring a 14 year old minor over the internet (I know, some people have a lot of problems with "To Catch A Predator" situations, but that's neither here nor there). The movie did have a minor actor (11 year old Jacob Tremblay) so I would think that would be a problem, unless scheduling insured that they were never on set at the same time.
How do these laws work for actors? Was the studio in the wrong?

2018.09.10 09:00 autotldr Olivia Munn says 'Predator' cast shunned her after she blew whistle on sex offender

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 68%. (I'm a bot)
Olivia Munn says she's getting the cold shoulder from "The Predator" cast after flagging 20th Century Fox that an actor in the reboot of the franchise is a registered sex offender.
Munn - who plays scientist Casey Bracket in the movie, which arrives in theaters on Sept. 14 - tweeted that audiences will love it "Now that the scene is deleted," in light of the #MeToo and Time's Up era.
Brown said "Our studio was not given that opportunity" to know who they were working with, especially Munn who appeared in the deleted scene opposite Striegel: "I so appreciate that you 'didn't leave well enough alone.'".
"Keegan reached out to Olivia privately last week to let her know how proud he was of her and echoed that sentiment in many interviews since then," his publicist Jillian Roscoe said in a statement emailed to USA TODAY. Munn appeared to object to director Black, who was aware of Striegel's legal problems, on Twitter Thursday: "The #MeToo movement called out abusers. But they're not the only ones in the wrong. Those who know about abuse and not only do nothing but continue to put abusers in positions of power are complicit."
Munn told The Hollywood Reporter that Black has not spoken to her since the scene was deleted.
Munn stars in the film alongside Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes and Thomas Jane, in addition to "This Is Us" star Brown, "Room" breakout Tremblay and Key.

Written Reviews

Jordan Mintzer - The Hollywood Reporter
It’s a totally gonzo method that mostly pays off because of all the snappy dialogue, gross-out gags and tongue-in-cheek camaraderie of the cast, with Boyd Holbrook proving to be a capable lead and Trevante Rhodes, Keegan-Michael Key, Thomas Jane and Olivia Munn providing worthy, and often funny, accomplices.
Dennis Harvey - Variety
Alas, within the Black oeuvre, “The Predator” lands more between “The Last Boy Scout” and “Iron Man 3,” being a mixture of the flippant-knucklehead-machismo species with frantic comic-book action. Though there’s gore and creatures aplenty, say goodbye to any remaining horror element in this series. Now we’ve got a sort of mashup of Indiana Jones, “Jurassic Park,” and a flying-kung-fu movie, no longer scary in the least but hella loud and busy.
Chris Evangelista - Slash Film
Black stages that action in a clear, highly-entertaining way. There are spaceship chases, and crashes. There are shootouts galore. Trucks flip in blasts of fire. The Predator’s movements are swift and brutal, and Black revels in the gore. Limbs fly, guts splash, and heads roll. It sounds ghastly, but almost all of the violence is played for laughs. The Predator is no longer a scary unstoppable force. It’s a punchline. There’s also plenty of fan service – at least two classic lines from Predator are repurposed here, to (mostly) amusing effect.
Is this bent towards comedy a problem? Purists (do Predator purists even exist?) might find fault. Some may long for the franchise to return to its serious roots. After you exit the theater into the real world, the flaws of The Predator become more and more apparent. The plot doesn’t make sense. A lot of the jokes fall flat. There’s a pointless sequel set-up. But while you’re watching the movie, it’s hard not to get caught up in all the fun. Black and company are having a blast here, and it’s infectious.
Hugh Armitage - Digital Spy
The Predator is a flawed actioner, but a strong cast and some Shane Black magic give it a sparkle that has been lacking from recent attempts to revive the killer aliens. It's not Black at his best, but it's a fun diversion as long as you don't think about it too hard.
Jim Vejvoda - IGN
The Predator is, in many ways, a throwback to what made the 1987 original so beloved: it includes many of the same elements, such as the rowdy camaraderie amongst absurdly macho protagonists, a debauched wit, and a primal battle between man and beast. It’s a shame when everything splinters apart in the haphazard and shoddy-looking last half-hour, largely derailing what began as a promising entry in the wildly inconsistent franchise.
Simon Brew - Den of Geek
A bad misfire this, particularly disappointing given the pedigree of who’s behind the camera. I think I may have got that across. Save your money. Buy a Predator boxset, The Nice Guys, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, The Last Boy Scout, The Long Kiss Goodnight, Lethal Weapon. Every single one of those is worth your time to some degree.
Matthew Leyland - Total Film
What Black’s movie really has going for it is pace. It starts with a crash, followed swiftly by a bang and vast swathes of wallop. The relentlessness doesn’t allow you any time to catch a yawn, but it’s also not too conducive to tension or suspense. Frantic editing gets the pulse racing less often than the eyeballs spraining, especially during the dark, forest-set finale. The kill count’s close to infinity, yet only a few of the deaths are truly memorable; shout-out to a nicely sticky riff on one monster’s use of invisibility.
Victor Stiff - The Playlist
While “The Predator” is no threat to surpass its predecessor in the action movie pantheon, it presents a distinct and satisfying flavor. Credit goes to Black for not playing it safe and pandering to audiences by repeating all the same beats we’ve already seen. Insanely violent, packed with off-color jokes, and of course, sentimentality, “The Predator” is one of the most enjoyable popcorn flicks hitting multiplexes this fall season.
David Ehrlich - Indiwire
Despite a handful of ingenious kills, “The Predator” doesn’t feel like a throwback that’s stitching the past into the present — it feels like a confused and desperate reboot that’s totally lost in time. For a film about celebrating the things that make people different, it’s a shame that Shane Black’s latest studio offering feels like it could have been made by committee, and that it probably was.
Emma Stefansky - Uproxx
The Predator is probably not worth your time, and I’m surprised actors of the caliber of Sterling K. Brown, Olivia Munn, and Boyd Holbrook even thought it was worth their time. On a surface level, the script makes a meager amount of sense, as long as you just shut up and don’t think about the plot too much. None of the characters are particularly interesting, and some are downright offensive. (More on that in a bit.) To top it all off, the digital effects, which this film relies heavily on, look only slightly better than a well-constructed video game.
Perri Nemiroff - Collider
The Predator is a disappointment for someone with their fingers crossed for a worthy Predator sequel, but where this new installment could find a home is in the outlandish alien action movie realm. That feels more like a backhanded compliment than anything, but it’s a quality that did keep me entertained from start to finish, and sent me on my way thinking it might be fun to catch it again with a group of friends and a big beer in my hand.
Katie Walsh - Nerdist
The Predator starts out strong, and there are some genuinely funny lines, but it nosedives quickly. Black loses all control over the tone and the pace, which ruins the elements that we might actually care about—story and character. It’s a damn shame to think about what could have been with The Predator.
Jake Cole - Slant
Even an act of noble sacrifice late in the film has a faintly goofy tone to it, reflective of Shane Black's streak of puckish nihilism, and that attitude makes him a perfect fit for this franchise.
Benjamin Lee - Guardian
Black populates his film with recognisable tropes and character types as well a grand throwback score, and there's a certain charm in his ability to conjure up the past without resorting to pastiche.
Brian Tallerico - RogerEbert.com
The Predator” is a fun, brutal, fighting machine that wastes no time getting down to business—not unlike its title character. It’s not big on wasted dialogue or too many attempts at meta humor, playing both like an homage/throwback film to the action of the ‘80s and something that feels new and fresh. There’s nothing pretentious or whimsical here as we so often see in films that almost parody ‘80s action instead of trying to figure out why these movies have endured in the first place. It’s easy to mimic or mock something. It’s much harder to ask why the first “Predator” captured lightning in a bottle and then try to catch it again. With a fantastic cast and razor-sharp pacing, the fact is that this is what you want from a movie called “The Predator.”
Jonathan Barkan - Dread central
The Predator is a genuinely fun movie, but it’s impossible to overlook the issues that plague nearly every moment. Poor story choices and strange, if not outright silly, character decisions result in an experience that will ultimately leave audiences feeling a great amount of “meh”.

2017.11.28 16:36 HeartofCrazyHorse IJW: Wonder (2017)

I was dreading my review of Wonder, the film adaptation of R. J. Palacio's novel by the same name, because I hate “feel good” movies. That is to say, I hate movies that use cheap, exploitative techniques to elicit emotions of sympathy, sentimentality, and superficial satisfaction from their audience. These films make me want to shoot myself because their premises rely on unbelievable or unrealistic events, cartoonish caricatures, and saccharine endings that leave me feeling nauseous rather than good. However, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that Wonder, despite relying heavily on such sentimentality, is a character-driven drama that is well worth the price of admission. Wonder focuses on one pivotal year in the life of one August “Auggie” Pullman, a ten-year-old boy who suffers from Treacher Collins syndrome, and his relationship with his immediate family and friends as he attends public school for the first time in his life.
One of the main reasons for Wonder’s success is its direction by coming of age movie genre master, Stephen Chbosky, who wrote, adapted, and directed the universally beloved The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Having not read the original novel myself, I cannot comment on whether or not the film is a faithful adaptation of its source material, but I can say that Chbosky has done a fantastic job. Chbosky wisely chooses to analyze not just Auggie, the film’s central character and the “sun/son” that the movie revolves around, but also the people who orbit him (this metaphor is explicitly repeated several times throughout the movie and, thankfully, is about as cheesy as the film gets). Auggie’s first year of school is, predictably, difficult. Nonetheless, while Auggie’s school days have their ups and downs, the experience is ultimately a triumph for both Auggie and the audience.
The film’s characters are the bedrock of its success. Despite having many child actors, the movie’s cast acts convincingly. The obvious standout performance is made by Jacob Tremblay in his portrayal of Auggie. Tremblay has already displayed impressive acting talent for his age through his previous soul-crushing performance in Room. Tremblay (who had to sit up to two and a half hours in a makeup chair to receive various prosthetic for this performance) is the movie’s heart and soul. Auggie’s understandable trepidation at starting school and meeting new people is palpable. But so too are his intelligence, curiosity, becoming idiosyncrasies, and good humor in spite of his disability. Chbosky amplifies Tremblay’s performance by giving us a glimpse into Auggie’s world, with the protagonist’s visual narration and striking imagination displayed for us to witness. Equal parts charming and heartfelt, these imaginative sequences never feel cheap because they are the coping mechanism that Auggie uses to get through his harsh world, simultaneously showcasing the different facets of his personality. We learn about Auggie’s love for Halloween, science, and Star Wars organically as the story progresses.
The rest of the child actors in Wonder also act miraculously well. The film spends a majority of its time with Auggie’s experiences in the fifth grade as he overcomes prejudices, stereotypes, and bullying while trying to make friends. “Hell is other people” is a quote I was reminded of as I watched Auggie traverse his first year in public school. Auggie is bullied mercilessly by the school’s popular boy, Julian (Bryce Gheisar), and his adolescent gang throughout the school year. Nevertheless, Auggie is eventually befriended by one distinct member of the clique named Jack Will (played by Noah Jupe; also known for perhaps being the only good thing about the film Suburbicon). Noah Jupe is a fine supporting compliment to Tremblay. Jack Will’s character is fairly well developed and his friendship with Auggie is one of the highlights of the film.
Several other characters in the movie also get their own focus and analysis; most notably, Auggie’s sister, Olivia “Via” Pullman (Izabela Vidovic). Her life is excellently juxtaposed with Auggie’s as the film explores how she feels like a forgotten, only child, due to the constant care, doting, and attention her parents lavish on Auggie. Likewise, Auggie's mother, Isabel Pullman (Julia Roberts), is closely examined as she attempts to restart a life she has literally put on hold for Auggie prior to his recent commencement of school. The only character who gets the short end of the prodding stick in this film is Nate Pullman (Owen Wilson), Auggie’s father. The film never goes into great detail or depth about Nate’s life, and he is mainly just used for comic relief.
Wonder deftly manages to tug at your heartstrings without feeling fake or cheesy. The film, in fact, manages to succeed so well because of its strong emotional core. Chbosky proves he’s still a skillful “coming of age” movie director through his focused, character-driven narrative. Indeed, all the story’s characters themselves are standouts in the film as the movie’s child actors manage to hold their own with their adult counterparts; especially Auggie, who, by the story’s end, becomes the film’s eponymous title. If you’re looking for something different from this season’s big-budget blockbusters, Wonder is a delightful alternative.
TLDR: Wonder is a feel-good movie that lives up to its namesake. 4/5 Stars

Jackson (The Hateful Eight)
For some of these, I paired people because some of these really were two-handed performances. Also, it was a way to cheat and get some more people into the top 15. Why didn’t I just make a top 20? I don’t know.
  1. Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay, “Room”: Brie Larson’s been doing amazing work for a while now, and I’m so glad she’s getting the deserved attention for Room (also watch Short Term 12, if you haven’t already). She and Tremblay are incredible in their own rights, but their performances are entwined so much that it’s hard to separate them. It’s a touching and heartbreaking relationship, but it’s also hopeful.
  2. Sarah Snook, “Predestination”: This movie was a while ago. However, Snook’s performance has stuck with me over the past year, and she is simply a revelation here. It seems like every emotion in existence can cross her face at any moment–the plot can go off the rails a bit, but she gives the story emotional heft–and she knocks every tricky scene she has out of the park. In a lesser performer’s hands, this movie probably wouldn’t work.
  3. Nina Hoss and Ronald Zehrfeld, “Phoenix”: These spellbinding performances are some of this year’s most overlooked, and the movie’s exploration of exteriors vs. interiors are reflected in Hoss’s and Zehrfeld’s faces. There is subtlety, but also an undercurrent of unease (and eventually devastation).
  4. Oscar Isaac, “Ex Machina”: This guy is finally getting attention due to Star Wars, but we can’t forget what a brilliant performance he gives in Ex Machina. He uses the physicality of his character extremely well, and the way his character is both hemmed in and defined by his creation is fascinating to watch.
  5. Walton Goggins, “The Hateful Eight”: Now here’s a deliberately showy performance, and it works like a charm with Tarantino’s style. ‘Hammy’ should not be a criticism here because ‘hammy’ is exactly what works. Mannix is just so, so, so much fun to watch.
  6. Abraham Attah, “Beasts of No Nation”: This is not a showy performance, but that only makes it more impressive (if we’re talking singular performances, I’d put him above Tremblay). Attah is able to convey the impact of the world around his character with just one glance, and he plays stoicism so damn well; it doesn’t sound like something you would necessarily ‘play’, but trust me, Attah’s a star in this film.
  7. Jason Segel, “The End of the Tour”: This is a wonderful performance in a movie that is much better than I expected it to be. He and Eisenberg have great chemistry throughout, and it feels like he really does become David Foster Wallace in this. It’s a complicated man and a complicated performance, and Segel is perfect for the role.
  8. Alicia Vikander, “Ex Machina”: She’s getting attention for The Danish Girl, but that performance–and especially that movie–is nothing compared to this one. It’s not just her playing a robot; it’s her nailing all the mannerisms and complexities while also injecting a human element into it. She’s sympathetic but scary.
  9. Jennifer Jason Leigh, “The Hateful Eight”: How happy I am that she has two excellent roles this year. As Daisy Domergue, she spends all of the movie bruised and battered and covered in blood, and her character gets unleashed in the second half. It’s a thrilling and terrifying performance all at once, and she and Goggins steals the show.
  10. Rooney Mara and Cate Blanchett, “Carol”: Ask me to pick one, and I’d go with the heart of the film (in my opinion): Rooney Mara. That’s not to take anything away from Blanchett, however, who is still incredible as Carol; that’s just me praising Mara because of how amazing she is. The film rests on subtle glances and light touches, and the two actresses craft a very believable and moving romance.
  11. Leonardo DiCaprio and Tom Hardy, “The Revenant”: This is admittedly the least ‘two-handed’ performance of the ones I’ve put on here, but whatever. Leo’s performance is great, and although he does rely on quite a few “Give me the Oscar!” faces throughout, we definitely should not overlook the difficulty of a purely physical performance. Hardy has the more intriguing character, but the performances are both fantastic.
  12. Charlotte Rampling and Tom Courtenay, “45 Years”: I’m not the biggest fan of the film as a whole, but I cannot deny the power of these two performances. They slowly and surely illustrate how the past ends up widening a fracture in their characters’ relationship, and it all culminates in a breathtakingly beautiful final 10 minutes.
  13. Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy, “Mad Max: Fury Road”: With Furiosa and Max, Theron and Hardy work in tandem to create one of the more compelling dynamics in film this year. The title is “Mad Max”, but it’s just as much–if not more–Furiosa’s movie, and Theron nails both the badass action elements and the emotional journey.
  14. Mark Ruffalo, “Spotlight”: It’s difficult to single out one actor in what is clearly an ensemble piece, but Ruffalo’s the one I’m drawn to. Yes, he’s clearly the one who’s doing the most ‘acting’–everyone else is wonderfully underplaying their roles–but he does it well. His big moment at the end is excellent, and his interactions with Stanley Tucci’s character are sublime.
  15. Michael Fassbender, “Steve Jobs”: The film works as well as it does due to Sorkin’s screenplay and Fassbender’s acting, and it’s without a doubt a great performance that the latter pulls off here. He captures the narcissism and rigid nature of the character, but also does justice to the softer side that arises later in the film.
