Re: Bohemian Rhapsody

I'm guessing that the 61 years between John Houseman and Tatum O'Neal is the biggest-ever gap between Supporting winners?

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody

I think the nearly 48-year difference between Jessica Tandy and Daniel Day-Lewis is probably the biggest gap.

Re: ASC Nominations

dws1982 wrote Easily my choice for Best Cinematography of the year. I don't think there's a single extraneous or wasted frame in the film. I would say almost to a fault. I wish the film had a few extraneous, wasted frames. Fair criticism. I felt similarly about Roma --everything was so meticulously...

Re: Categories One-by-Two: Sound Editing & Sound Mixing

OscarGuy, if I were trying to think of a Sound Editing winner that's analogous to A Quiet Place , I would probably look at Arrival . (Although I do agree that it is the kind of film that could have been nominated in Sound Mixing, and if I remember correctly, several of us predicted that it would be....

Re: USC Scripter Awards

Great choice, and great to see this film (still my number two of 2018) get some recognition.

Re: Categories One-by-Two: Sound Editing & Sound Mixing

Only two times have these categories split between two films nominated in both categories: Slumdog Millionaire and The Dark Knight in 2008, and Hacksaw Ridge and Arrival in 2016. That doesn't mean that voters consciously think about these things, but I think it does mean that in many years voters se...

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2018

Free Solo I mentioned this a little bit in the Unseen Oscar Nominees thread. I'm glad I saw it in a theater, on a big screen, even though I had mixed feelings about the movie itself. The climbing footage, where you see the vastness of the landscapes in contrast with the smallness of one man, is rea...

Re: Unseen 2018 Oscar Nominated Films

Next Monday, February 11, Hale County This Morning, This Evening airs on PBS as part of their Independent Lens series. Times will probably vary based on the PBS affiliate airing it.

If you're searching the listings on your TV, make sure you search for Independent Lens.

Re: Unseen 2018 Oscar Nominated Films

It looks like National Geographic has put Free Solo in some more theaters this weekend. It was playing at an "IMAX" (aka LieMax...basically just a much bigger-than-average screen but not true IMAX projection) theater in Huntsville this weekend. Definitely can't imagine it playing as well o...

Re: SAG Predictions

Rami Malek is going to win the Oscar for kind of looking like Freddie Mercury, isn't he?

Re: Mary Queen of Scots reviews

This is essentially a straightforward historical drama, the kind that often gets high praise and awards consideration, with the bad fortune to be playing at the same time as The Favourite , a movie with a much different take on British history. As one reviewer on Letterboxd said, it's like opening a...

Re: Can You Ever Forgive Me? reviews

Pretty much agree with what everyone else has said about this film, especially all of the positive things about McCarthy. I've never had a strong opinion about her as an actress, but I thought she was excellent here. Lee Israel would've been so easy pigeonhole as a shrill caricature--she could be pl...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

The article is detailed and, yes, graphic, but as the general age on this board is, well, quite older than 18, I don't understand the warning. The warning comes from personal experience. Some may not understand how difficult it can be to see this information without warning. I wish I didn't underst...
