Re: Academy Members' Brutally Honest Ballots

It is clear that a lot of the Academy members are still confused by the prefrential ballot system.

And like always a lot of them vote for friends or if they feel someone is overdue.

Re: Categories One-by-One: Cinematography

BJ, I don't know if you've seen Black Panther I’ve seen Black Panther. (Which I consider quite an achievement, given the film’s seemingly non-stop attempts to put me to sleep for most of its running time.) Oh, so you don't like super hero movies in general. That explains your very hohum response to...

The Original BJ wrote:Mudbound is a very deserving nominee, and of course Morrison's historic nomination was cheer-worthy. But I'd honestly be shocked if she emerged the winner


Rachel Morrison will be back for round 2 next year for Black Panther.

Re: BAFTA Nominations & Predictions

I hope the Oscars make a dent in one of the major categories -hopefully Dafoe over Rockwell - otherwise it's going to be one hell of a boring ceremony.

Unfortunately it looks like it's going to be a repeat of the Baftas all down the line.

Re: Your Oscar Ballot - Best Film

Mine: 1. Call Me By Your Name 2. Phantom Thread 3. Dunkirk 4. Three Billboards Of the films nominated ideally my ballot ends with the above 4 films. I didn't hate the other 5 films but to me they are all head scratcher nominees and none of them deserved to be on the final ballot. Putting these 5 in ...

Re: Last Seen Movie - The Latest Movie You Have Seen; ratings

Hell's Half Acre (John H. Auer, 1954) 8/10 Interesting and very offbeat little noir set in Hawaii and filmed totally on location. A retired ex-syndicate partner (Wendell Corey) takes on a murder rap and goes to prison when his girlfriend (Nancy Gates) shoots a blackmailer - the murder sequence is qu...

The Long Night (Anatole Litvak, 1947) 6/10 Hollywood liked remaking french classics and here they tried hard with this one - it took the European emigrée director, Anatole Litvak, to attempt a remake of Marcel Carné's "Le Jour Se Lève". RKO bought the rights of the original and then had th...

Peking Express (William Dieterle, 1951) 7/10 You cannot really go wrong with a plot that involves a train carrying a group of passengers in danger. It also helps that this is an updated remake of Josef von Sternberg's "Shanghai Express" but this time set during the communist era. The plot ...

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl (Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, 2015) 8/10 Quirky coming of age drama which is a John Hughes-Wes Anderson hybrid. "Me" (Thomas Mann) is a geeky high school student who is harshly self critical and prefers being "invisible". From childhood he and his buddy, Ea...

Thor: Ragnarok (Taika Waititi, 2017) 1/10 The screenplay unfortunately takes a breezy and tongue-in-cheek approach much to the detriment of this particular franchise - not that the previous two installments were any better. Thor (Chris Hemsworth), the extremely bland superhero with flowing golden lo...

Please Believe Me (Norman Taurog, 1950) 2/10 Silly nonsense with prim Brit, Deborah Kerr, inheriting a Texas ranch of cattle who is chased by three men for her money on the boat crossing across the Atlantic. Hollywood still didn't know quite how to fit a star like Kerr into their projects. She was b...
