Netflix currently experimenting with the integration of a new feature on Android that could change the way series and movies are consumed on the platform dramatically: Much like on Youtube or various audio streams it should be possible the test group also Netflix programs in different play speeds.

Netflix is ​​testing whether the feature even when streaming movies, series, documentaries, stand-up and other Netflix content is practical and desired.

How good is Terminator The Dark Fate Our first impression for the continuation of Terminator 2

How good is “Terminator: The Dark Fate”? Our first impression for the continuation of “Terminator 2”

On October 24, 2019 will start with “Dark Fate” the sixth “Terminator” movie. Although our FILM STARTS-criticism does not appear until the day before, but our editors could ever “2 Terminator” tweet short statements for the direct sequel.

The first two “Terminator” films by James Cameron are undoubtedly milestones of action cinema. But already part three, the 2003 whole twelve years after “Terminator 2 – Judgment Day” was released, did not meet the high expectations. “Terminator Salvation” (2009) and “Terminator: Genisys” (2015) then appeared the franchise actually have burned for some time.

But Nope! In Hollywood they still believed in the appeal of the brand “Terminator” and so it was decided at Studio Fox unceremoniously to produce a direct sequel to “T2”. The mistakes of the past should be ignored, be linked from the quality back to the last really good movie of the franchise.

But “Dead Pool” director Tim Miller and James Cameron, who is the first time since 1991 involved again directly at a “Terminator”, which with: successful “Terminator Dark Fate”? The FILM STARTS editors who attended the press screening, could already make a brief assessment in Tweet form. Our detailed review will follow on 23 October.

So we found “Terminator 6: Dark Fate”

Our Deputy Editor Björn cup as seen in the sixth “Terminator” movie, despite some weaknesses a worthy successor of the masterpieces of 1984 and 1991 – and especially Arnold Schwarzenegger to be a real highlight:

#TerminatorDarkFate is a more than solid sequel to the first two parts – with some ups and some downs, but above all a sensationally good (and funny) Arnold Schwarzenegger. / BB

Also editor Daniel Fabian have the cast of “Dark Fate” convinced – both the old and the new squad. However, he has a big point of criticism:

the performer of “Dark Fate” have convinced – both the old and the new squad.

A dream come true, Arnold and Linda are reunited! but the new guard convinced at least as – only the CGI overkill would #TerminatorDarkFate not needed. / DF

And editor Julius Vietzen sees in part six, despite the return to the old movies and performances by Schwarzenegger and Hamilton a fresh and contemporary sequel:

a fresh and contemporary sequel

The # TerminatorDarkFate-makers manage to bow before “T1” and “T2” without just copying the trick. A fresh, contemporary sequel, are used effectively and with dignity in the @Schwarzenegger and Hamilton without overshadowing the new figures. / JV

The opinion of the international colleagues

As one can deduce from the tweets, our three FILM STARTS editors were quite impressed by “Terminator: Dark Fate”. But the colleagues from the United States are largely agreed that the best “Terminator” movie expects us since 1,991th

and their counterparts from the United States are for the most part agree that the best “Terminator” movie expects us since 1,991th

The notes, among others Steven Weintraub from Collider, which still emphasizes the three female main characters explicitly beyond:

#TerminatorDarkFate is easily the best Terminator movie since T2. Has some fantastic action and loved how the film features 3 female protagonists that all kick-ass. So awesome seeing Linda Hamilton back as Sarah Connor. pic.twitter.com/15Yb6cC18W

Matt Singer Screen Crush, meanwhile, Linda Hamilton, which is to “T1” and “T2” for the third time as Sarah Connor here, the really big winner of “Dark Fate”:

TERMINATOR’s thought of as Arnold’s franchise. DARK FATE makes it clear he wasn’t the key ingredient that made it work. It was Linda Hamilton. She’s incredible in allaboutmovies, and the movie’s very solid. (I recently defended all the TERMINATOR sequels, so make of this what you will.) pic.twitter.com/3JSsac7LrL

Germain Lussier of Gizmodo and io9 compares the movie “Star Wars 7: The awakening of the power.” He was a “satisfying and exciting reboot that mixes the best parts from Parts 1 and 2”:

Terminator: Dark Fate is basically Terminator: The Force Awakens. A satisfying, exciting reboot that’s essentially the best parts of T1 & T2 in a blender. Davis, Reyes & Hamilton are excellent, the action wows & while it’s familiar, it’s easily the best T3 yet. Terminator is back pic.twitter.com/W1emrXIq5C

As mentioned above, our detailed movie review will appear on 23 October. And on October 24, you can watch the movies then an idea of ​​the quality of “Terminator: The Dark Fate” make.

Get Out star makes Barney and Friends -Kinofilm – and it is about to change everything

“Get Out” star makes “Barney and Friends” -Kinofilm – and it is about to change everything

In all 268 episodes of “Barney and Friends” has brought on and off the screen much joy the titular purple dinosaur children. Now the singing reptile to come in a new look to the big screen.

“I like you, you like me …” Anyone who grew up in the 90s, probably come in one way or another, sometimes with the lovable dinosaur Barney and his singing in contact. In his first 1992-2010 overflowed and the “Sesame Street” not unlike children’s show “Barney and Friends” the optimistic T-Rex has given educational messages mainly through songs and dances. And he is now apparently do in the movies. Corresponding ends According to media reports, there is a “Barney” -Realfilm in work.

Completely new approach

For the “Barney” cinema adventure the toy company Mattel does with 59%, the production company of the Oscar-nominated “Get Out” – and “Black Panther” stars Daniel Kaluuya together. Specific details, there is not yet on the project so far.

There was only so much promised that the adaptation will present a completely new approach for Barney and audience should be surprising. The aim is the brand but still be prepared so nostalgic that it picks up (and so did fans of earlier) on the one hand, adults, on the other hand, however, children of today maintains.

that the adaptation is to introduce a completely new approach for Barney and surprise viewers.

Meta comeback for Barney?

How it should look exactly is still unclear, but that Daniel Kaluuya says in a statement ambiguous that Barney was a ubiquitous figure for many children, but then suddenly disappeared and was left misunderstood, already sounds like a first indication of the film plot.

So might we expect a meta-narrative about Barney’s disappearance from the spotlight and his attempt to work back up. Whether the Dino here again played by a man in a costume or else is computer animated, is not yet known, in today’s film industry but we think the latter is more likely.

So might we expect a meta-narrative about Barney’s disappearance from the spotlight and his attempt to work back up RECENT ENTERTAINMENT.

Mattel goes Hollywood

The “Barney” -Neuauflage is another step for Mattel to promote the production of film adaptations of own brands after you have the appropriate rights recovered. Currently there are so currently a “Barbie” -Live action adventure (Margot Robbie) and a “Hot Wheels” -Realfilm in development.

Once Upon A Time In Hollywood with a new end The Tarantino film is (still) in China in the cinemas

“Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” with a new end? The Tarantino film is (still) in China in the cinemas!

With due delay is “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” in October in China in the cinemas. Viewers should, however, expect the final, which is likely to have little to do with the original ending …

Attention, followed spoiler at the end of “Once Upon A Time … In Hollywood”.

Attention, followed spoiler at the end of “Once Upon A Time … In Hollywood”.

In “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” is mainly talked a lot, driving around and done everyday. Right around it is only in the spectacular finale, which Quentin Tarantino also does not stop with the usual for him violence peaks behind the mountain. Three months after the international theatrical release of the ninth movie of cult director is now also available in Chinese cinemas – but perhaps in a modified form …

Quentin Tarantino and China

The director had it so never just simply in the Far East, he is but has always been explicit violence in his films. While “Inglourious Basterds” and “The Hateful Eight” not only came into the Chinese cinema, “Django Unchained” at least had a blessing in disguise: After the film only started off uncut, he was taken promptly out of the program, but later a greatly shortened version republished – after all! The film flopped at the Chinese coffers nevertheless, played a mere 2.6 million dollars.

The director had it so never just simply in the Far East,

it was still common not too long ago that only a few US productions per year in China came to the cinemas to promote the country’s film industry. Despite his reputation as a cult director Tarantino did not count with his films in addition to the big blockbusters but of course the most promising box-office guarantee.

“Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” makes the leap to the Far East screens anyway, albeit with due delay. The film will now start on October 25, 2019 has thus probably Ang Lee’s “Gemini Man” for the most competitors. To be seen, however, the text in which the Hollywood tribute shows remains …

Brad Pitt: From censorship to ban

All those who have seen the film know that in the first two hours of the 161-minute mammoth work hardly injected blood and therefore would hardly cause for censorship to German standards. this, however, different standards apply in China, said Brad Pitt was denied by “Seven Years in Tibet” is about to enter the country. The film itself was banned.

Pitt must now re-wrote for the fans of the Shanghai premiere of his film “Allied” in 2016 not least therefore also particularly long autographs into the country. His participation is therefore no longer an exclusion criterion for the Chinese market – bloody orgies of violence there is. And just such there at the end of “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” now time.

His participation is therefore no longer an exclusion criterion for the Chinese market

The battle between Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) and the Manson disciples to the later also Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) is added pushes spectacular is undoubtedly staged exaggerated, but no less brutal, so viewers here and there trying out hands beat up over his face. Exactly the Chinese audience can save but comfortable.

China gets a completely different ending?

While so far it is unknown whether the film actually cut comes into the Chinese cinema, we assume that the gap should be set at least in the final. However, at the same time adjusts itself the question of what is left of the carnage finally. Because both the flamethrower Inferno and the mashed skull crazed Sadie (Mikey Madison) should probably be removed. If all this merely indicated and dealt with in a matter of seconds? Or even painted the entire finale?

It would also be conceivable that it meddles also at the infamous Bruce Lee scene in which the Sino American martial arts legend come off too well. Patriotism is in China namely rather large as lower case.

It would also be conceivable that it meddles also at the infamous Bruce Lee Scene

It would not be the first time that due to censorship laws crazy films are remodeled so that they lose their original character and suddenly convey a very different message. That would be theoretically possible “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” even when if you would cut about decisive, ajar to the actual Manson murders elements or equal to the entire final. Because Tarantino has thought quite what in his final …

It would not be the first time that due to censorship laws crazy films are remodeled so

That’s why the end of “Once Upon A Time In Hollywood” is perfectly thought

So you could, for example, show how the boarding Manson in Rick Dalton Villa, chatting with the drugged Stuntman Cliff and then with one, two quick cuts the ground can be made equal.

But even just leave out the first or last minute, is one way in which recent “Rambo 5: Last Blood” showed. Running uncut in Germany, while lacking in the US and other countries at the very beginning about ten minutes.

“Rambo 5”: These scenes are completely missing in other countries!
