Re: I, Tonya reviews

I haven’t seen it – it’s not going to open here for another 3 weeks, and when it does, I’m not sure I’ll be able to go out and see it. But I did see the trailer. Tonya Harding wasn’t who she was and did what she did because she was born on the wrong side of the track or because she had a monstrous m...

Re: Marriage

Mazel Tov, (or actualy Mazal Tov, as is the proper Hebrew pronunciation).

And only the other day we were kvetching about getting old and here you are, shiny young groom. Congratulations!

Re: Call Me By Your Name reviews

Uri wrote Elio is the most obvious, surprisingly available complicit for him to play on this primal fascination/attraction. Reading this, all I can say is that’s a very interesting idea that wasn’t at all apparent to me while watching the film. Although perhaps more of the fault lies in Armie Hamme...

Re: Golden Globe Reactions

But Uri... can you really think that I don't believe he should be in jail? I was saying something else... But never mind. In Italy we say, "non c'è peggior sordo di chi non vuol sentire". Except that deafness seems a bit too pervasive on this board... Deaf or not, I will always want to he...

Re: Golden Globe Reactions

I’ve recently tried to keep myself away from this discussion – I have other things on my mind and, basically, I’m a coward. But, one notion and I’m out of here, running. I’ve no doubt the Marcos and Catherine Deneuves of this world can navigate their way, unprotected, in the stormy ocean of sex wit...

Re: Call Me By Your Name reviews

I think one thing that could have been clarified to assuage Sabin's issue is more exploration of what Oliver sees in Elio (i.e. what this hunk sees in this little boy, because that's definitely what it plays like.) There's a degree to which the answer is implicit in the era -- I imagine Oliver's de...

Re: The Post reviews

Later this month I'm about to have my hip joint replaced. I DO feel ancient recently, I'm afraid. Good luck! I know a number of people who've had that done, who after they get over the initial recovery are perfectly fine. Knee joint replacements are the killer, especially if you have to have one re...

Re: The Post reviews

Later this month I'm about to have my hip joint replaced. I DO feel ancient recently, I'm afraid. Awful. All the best with that. It's a very common procedure and people recover well. I know a number of people who have had them including one of my grandmothers when she was in her 80's and all came o...

Re: The Post reviews

Streep would have been fine with a better script and more subtle director. As for Spacek, don't care if she never makes another film again. I want her to be in at least five movies every year. But I think she's pretty happy with just doing a small role here and there, mostly on TV, and spending the...

Re: The Post reviews

As is the usual case with Spielberg serious historical mode, this one is text-book-y and America-is-great-y, with a touch of schmaltz and flag waving. It is also rather stagy and being quite predictable dramatically, not very engrossing. Other than that, it’s fine. So, Precious – bitter Streep got t...

Re: Golden Globe Reactions

But why not "all-white?" I think some people consider Guillermo Del Toro a POC because of him being Mexican despite being technically a Caucasian. Him being white can be associated with him being part of the cultural elite in Mexico. Him being Mexican is associated with him being conceive...
