Re: The Official Review Thread of 2018

The Original BJ wrote It's interesting how different a movie environment Incredibles 2 is entering than its predecessor. Another way in which Incredibles 2 is in a different movie environment has less to do with superhero films and more to do with PIXAR. In 2004, PIXAR was in the middle of a fairly...

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2018

I have very little to say about The Incredibles 2, there is something entirely... not incredible about it. Part of it stems from the decision to launch this sequel immediately after the first one, but it can't help but come across as episodic. Fourteen years is a long time for something to feel like...

Best Cinematography 2004

The only interesting thing to say about this year was that this was the first year that the Academy faced pressure to nominate a film using digital cinematography. Dion Beebe and Paul Cameron received an ASC nomination for Michael Mann’s Collateral for its atmospheric LA nightscape. It’s not as thou...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

So... that’s a key.

UPDATE: between that and the Supreme Court ruling about Ohio's voter purge, I'm scared.

Best Cinematography 2003

Imagine for a moment that it’s Oscar morning and you discovery that In the Mood for Love got four major nominations? Or 4 Months, 3 Weeks, 2 Days? I may not love City of God, but I’m happy for the joy that it brought to those who loved that film and didn’t think it had a shot in hell. I can’t imagin...

Re: R.I.P Anthony Bourdain

Suicide rates are really on the rise now right, and there's absolutely no shame in calling that number. I'm not afraid to admit that two years ago, I called the hotline. I wasn't seriously considering it but I still felt like I needed help. I got it. Very sad death. I watched his show a lot. He'll a...

Re: Best Cinematography 2002

Big Magilla wrote Second to go has to be Road to Perdition for which Conrad Hall's posthumous Oscar was more a tribute to him than it was to anything he put on film. I certainly understand not voting for Road to Perdition (i didn't) but... do you remember the cinematography of this film? It was ful...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

What if instead of a constitutional crisis we just learn that we don't live in a democracy anymore?

Best Cinematography 2002

Pretty solid lineup, although I easily give my vote to Ed Lachman for Far From Heaven. Even though I’ve never quite been able to fall in love with Todd Haynes’ Sirk homage, I have no such qualms about what he manages to pull off visually. This is a note-perfect homage that never gets in the way of t...

Mister Tee wrote So, no one appears to be responding to this. Not to say people are obligated to reply to things I post, but...isn't anyone else alarmed by this? 40 years ago, Nixon said "If the president does it, that means it isn't illegal", and the nation gasped at the imperial notion....

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

Just a record number of garbage humans running for office. I honestly can't remember the last time I gasped so much while reading an article. If you want to know what "incel" means, it stands for "involuntarily celibate" because they think women are so horrible today and have too...

Re: 2018 Emmys

If ABC thinks the show is too toxic to remain on the air despite being a ratings juggernaut, I'd imagine that voters won't give those DVDs a minute of their time. You're probably right about some of the voters, but almost assuredly there are many who will look at this show (and all involved) as the ...
