Re: The Official Review Thread of 2017

Okay, anonymous, since you saw it can you explain why Jumanji is making so much money? It could potentially end up as a top five film from 2017, box office wise, and I legit have no clue why. Now, this is happening more and more with me and my understanding of the box office and what makes money, bu...

Yeah and everything else that happened this week. Honestly, I'm just exhausted.

Re: Pre-Christmas Look at the Top Races

... I did forget about the PGA nomination even though you mentioned it. Hmm...

This weekend is stuffed with movies opening I want to see, so maybe I'll check it out.

Re: DGA Nominations

I think Peele and Gerwig needed this recognition. Should they have missed out on this, the Globe nod and BAFTA, I'd say they were sunk (particularly because we know both have been widely seen). Arguably McDonagh as well, but I could've imagined a scenario where he missed this but still got the oscar...

Re: Pre-Christmas Look at the Top Races

I dunno Sabin - those nominations for Molly's Game seem like small potatoes. The writer's had basically nobody to vote for; Aaron Sorkin feels like a big name debut director and I don't know how much a get ACE really is. I think Streep's shaky for the fifth slot, but we've said that about her before...

Re: BAFTA Nominations & Predictions

a) His actions vis-a-vis torturing a black male are abstracted. You don't see the victim, he faces no consequences for said actions and it's fodder for jokes. b) He threw the ad-exec out the window, which is witnessed by a cop (who happens to be black). The cop fires him, but no charges are filed de...

Re: DGA Predix

Yeah, I think Sabin and BJ are right. I think Phantom Thread will approach double digits come nomination day, but I think Focus is aggressively targeting AMPAS beyond the Guilds. I will rage endlessly about SPC's poor handling of Call Me By Your Name and think it'll do well to match The Kids Are Alr...

Re: Golden Globe Reactions

Gotta admit I do think the politics of Three Billboards oscillates between problematic and thought provoking but given the tenor of the conversation here I'm not really wanting to delve. And I do want to see the film a second time to see if my opinion changes.

Re: Golden Globe Reactions

My first reactions are mostly ones of disappointment - The Shape of Water and Three Billboards.. are probably my least favourite films currently in the best picture race and they emerged as the night's big winners. Glad for Ronan. Really thought that Chalamet would win - BJ nailed how Oldman switche...

Re: Golden Globe Predictions Contest!

Seems most people are picking either McDormand or Hawkins in Actress-Drama, but is Streep totally out of it? I'd think Saoirse Ronan's star-rising moment would make her a logical choice here, but Margot Robbie strikes me as enough analog to Sharon Stone/Casino that I have my doubts. (Especially wit...

Re: Pre-Christmas Look at the Top Races

To find a Best Actor winner that was in a Best Picture hopeful, one has to go all the way back to...2009. And before that, 2006, 2001, 1995...which is to say, it happens somewhat infrequently. I presume you mean to say not in a best picture hopeful, because Firth and Dujardins were in best picture ...
