Detective Pikachu has a reputation of being a very adorable character. ‘It’s impossible not to be charmed by Pikachu, with his big eyes and caffeine addiction’  ‘Detective Pikachu gets away with a lot […]

“Black Mirror: Bandersnatch”‘s hold on the top spot in our Best TV Movie Emmy odds is looking a little wobbly now. The anthology installment still leads with 18/5 odds, but it might not be able to hold off “Deadwood: The Movie” for long. “Deadwood,” which premieres on HBO on May 31, the last day of Emmy eligibility, has now improved to 37/10 odds, thanks to nine Experts picking it to win. Just a month ago, it had five Experts backing it, which is what “Black Mirror” has now. That nearly double support is no doubt due to the fact that “Deadwood” screeners have been sent out for press and the film had its premiere last week, receiving overwhelmingly positive notices. (It currently has a 100 percent on Rotten Tomatoes; there’s no Metacritic score yet because it’s awaiting more reviews.) SEE ‘Deadwood’ puts pressure on ‘Black Mirror’ in our Emmy predictions Once “Deadwood” premieres and the public gets a taste of Al Swearengen (Ian McShane) & Co. again, look for it to garner more support. At the moment, 20 of our Top 24 users are predicting “Black Mirror” to win, with three selecting “Deadwood” and one going out on a limb for “King Lear.” Our Editors are split at five for “Deadwood” and three for “Black Mirror.” Each contender has strong arguments for a win. The two-time reigning champ in the category with “San Junipero” and “USS Callister,” “Black Mirror” could easily three-peat, thanks to voter laziness and inertia. Meanwhile, “Deadwood” is finally getting the proper ending it was never able to have 13 years after the series’ abrupt cancellation following a three-year run. The acclaimed David Milch Western’s biggest Emmy win was in directing for Walter Hill for the pilot in 2004, and it was only up for Best Drama Series once, in 2005, so the Emmys deliver a belated make-up win here. Plus, though Netflix took over with “Black Mirror” the past two years, HBO is still the king of the TV movie category, with 21 victories, the last coming in 2015 for “Bessie.” SEE Ian McShane and Timothy Olyphant may get their Emmy IOU for ‘Deadwood’ — but not in acting But the biggest tell-tale sign in favor of “Deadwood” is a new rule stipulating TV movies be at least 75 minutes long to qualify. “San Junipero” would not have qualified, but “USS Callister” would have been fine under this rule. This stricter guideline indicates that the academy might be less than thrilled by “Black Mirror” winning with its standalone episodes (“Sherlock” won in 2016 with “The Abominable Bride”). “Bandersnatch,” a choose-your-own-adventure episode with five endings, has an average runtime of 90 minutes, with the shortest being 40 minutes. Rounding out our TV movie predictions are “King Lear,” “Brexit” and “My Dinner with Herve.” PREDICT the Emmy nominees now; change them until July 16 In the near future, you can check out how our experts rank this year’s Emmy contenders.

Yet here’s one more QT anniversary, a bit less monumental but, in its way, as meaningful: It has been 10 years since the premiere of “Inglourious […]

With the third John Wick movie topping the box office, it’s safe to say that series creator and writer Derek Kolstad knows how to present a back-to-basics action movie. Now Kolstad is working on an adaptation of the game series perhaps most synonymous with big, dumb, action movie antics: Just Cause. German production company Constantin […]

Ready Steady Cut

When watching Once Upon a Time in Hollywood Trailer 2, my confidence in the upcoming movie was born from the high-billed impressive cast propping it up. I hope it does not become “too many cooks” where, despite the potential, it becomes a significant dud. Although, I’m struggling to think of a movie where Leonardo DiCaprio […]

Parabellum presents a stellar example of fun, but sophisticated entertainment, it balances so carefully between being cool and being almost a joke. But what it achieves is excellent. I have […]
