Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

Over the past few weeks, I've spoken to some friends who'd really like it if we could all chill out a little bit. All I'll say is this. The GOP just learned how to win by campaigning against the MeToo movement. It’s about to get ugly, ugly, ugly.

Re: R.I.P. Audrey Wells

I love The Truth About Cats and Dogs. Such a witty script. Very sad.

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2018

The Academy was really onto something with the Best Popular Movie category, except instead it should be Worst Popular Movie. We're in a remarkable period of time where so many movies that cost over $100 million makes money. Obviously there are exceptions, but it would really open up a dialogue about...

Re: First Man reviews

Great take, BJ. Do you see First Man being greeted more with respect than passion in the Oscar race?

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

I don't think I've gone through this much anxiety since the 2016 election. I'm exhausted. I tried to watch the Matt Damon SNL cold open but I only mustered one small laugh when he said "I showed this speech to almost no one." There are many things that I hate about this past week but had B...

Re: BlacKkKlansman

Italiano wrote It's a pleasant (if overlong) anecdote on a subject which shouldn't be pleasant nor anecdotal. And the final, recent real-life scenes, while definitely disturbing, feel even too urgent and important compared to what we have seen before. One can't deny that the movie is well-made, at ...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

There's a great joke going on twitter: "totally wouldn't peg this guy for a belligerent drunk."

Kavanaugh is doing an unbelievably terrible job of defending himself. Sub out every sentence he says with "WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU DON'T WANNA?"

Re: The Post-Festival Landscape

As always, great writeup, Tee. At this point last year, I thought that The Shape of Water had a terrific shot at Best Picture by virtue of the fact that it was going to register in so many categories. Then I saw the film and my estimation of it sank because I found it sweet-hearted but meandering an...

Best Cinematography 2017

And here we are. Any lineup that includes Darkest Hour can’t be put on the list of the great, but a historic grouping for at least a couple of reasons. One of them is the inclusive of Rachel Morrison for Mudbound. Her cinematography utilizing shallow depth of field is the most interesting aspect of ...

Vice/Untitled Adam McKay Movie reviews

Well, not other people's reviews. Mine. Last week, I was fortune enough to sit in on an early screening of Adam McKay's untitled new movie, formerly titled Backseat but I believe it will now be titled Vice. Which is kind of a no-brainer. Vice is a continuation of McKay's video essay style of filmmak...

Re: A Star is Born reviews

I have a friend who is a film critic at Toronto. At this point, he has seen First Man, A Star is Born, Widows, and a few others I'm not recalling at this moment. While he didn't love A Star is Born (he gave it a "B"), he said he could very easily see it winning Best Picture. That said, he ...
