Oscar Prospects: Too bad it's not doing too well at the box-office. It does deserve at least Adapted Screenplay, Actress, Supporting Actress (Debicki & Rodriguez) and Film Editing.

Grade: A-


Rodriguez has the same glum expression throughout as in all the Fast & Furious films.

Re: The Host of the 91st Academy Awards Is....

The Original BJ wrote It's getting the PGA nod for sure. The WGA has a way more populist contingent than the Academy's writers' branch, so it's probably in there too. SAG Ensemble isn't out of the question either (Roma isn't their style, and Green Book and A Star is Born have tiny enough casts to b...

Re: Golden Globe Awards

The reason why both A Star is Born and Bohemian Rhapsody are competing in the drama category is because they are technically not musicals. They have concert sequences and the characters don't break into song for the cinema audience as in all actual musicals - the Astaire films, Gigi, My Fair Lady et...

Re: The Host of the 91st Academy Awards Is....

Kevin Hart has a box office average of the 22 films he's been in of $83 million. His big hits were Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle ($400 million+), Central Intelligence, Ride Along, and Think Like a Man (all at or just over $100 million). His film this year, opposite Tiffany Haddish (who I assume yo...

Widows (Steve McQueen, 2018) 5/10 This heist movie throws in everything and the kitchen sink - police brutality, sexism, interracial marriage, a tough talking black woman wielding a gun - and is very busy with loads of characters but not enough screen time to do any of them justice. There's just too...

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

Every Day (Michael Sucsy, 2018) 3/10 Pretty high schooler falls for a person called "A" who inhabits a different person's body - boys and girls of every race and gender possible which in itself is the glaring message - every 24 hours making the relationship kinda dicey. Stupid premise, bas...

Re: The Host of the 91st Academy Awards Is....

As time goes on I am getting less interested in contemporary cinema that doesn't fall directly into my sphere of personal interest. And I have almost zero interest in up and coming younger actors. None of them have that star quality and aura of the stars of yesteryear. Thank God for old movies from...

Re: The Host of the 91st Academy Awards Is....

I'm not sure if I've ever even heard of him before. Does he have a TV show or something? I'd never heard of him either but by chance came across him on cable last night in something called The Wedding Ringer. Could only sit through it for 10 minutes and just switched the channel. All these comics a...

Re: AFI Top Ten

Either it's been a terrible year for American cinema, or these people of the AFI don't understand anything about movies. (A Star is Born? A Quiet Place? And I haven't seen Green Book or Mary Poppins yet, but, I mean, come on...). And yes, the Roma mention is a sign of such a cultural and intellectu...

Re: The Favourite reviews

You do realize that seriously discussing this stuff, without fully insisting how ridiculously cynical it really is, is rather degrading, don’t you? It's how the world in general works. Going all a flutter over cynicism is actually the degrading part. Gotta be tough and move on when things don't go ...

The Ballad of Buster Scruggs (Joel & Ethan Coen, 2018) 9/10 The Coen brothers have come up with a quirky anthology film set in the far distant West with death as the common theme in all six tales. Clearly a pastiche as the brothers tip a witty hat to the films of Ford, Leone, Corbucci and Tarant...
