Re: Short Lists for Multiple Categories

...The VFX of Black Panther are just so poor I really liked Black Panther but think the only nomination it truly deserves is for costume design. Too much is being written into the film being some kind of masterpiece. Yes it touched on the Black experience and incorporated that into a Superhero scen...

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey & Rodney Rothman, 2018) 8/10 Call it age but it took me awhile trying to figure out what was going on. This is the first Marvel film that actually feels like you are reading and immersed inside a comic book. What a relief after mos...

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

Venom (Ruben Fleischer, 2018) 2/10 A group of alien parasites arrive on earth using the bodies of astronauts as host. An evil scientist (Riz Ahmed) plans on using them for his own nefarious means. Typically over-the-top Marvel nonsense has a tough reporter (Tom Hardy) bantering with the good parasit...

Pinky Memsaab: A Dubai Story (Shazia Ali Khan, 2018) 9/10 Shazia Ali Khan's spectacularly assured directorial debut comes in the wake of other equally cutting edge independent films in Pakistan like "Mor", "Manto" and "Cake", all of which have dared to experiment far aw...

It just goes to show that some men can never get out of the syndrome as depicted in the film Porky's.

Re: A Message from Damien's Husband Ralph

I almost got to meet Damien when I was in NYC once to see a play. He saw that I had checked in someplace that was near his apartment and he suggested we meet for a drink. I unfortunately had plans I couldn’t break so I wasn’t able to meet up that night and I always regret it. I had the exact same &...

Re: Screen Actors Guild Awards

Hopefully this is the year the Academy pulls upsets in most of the major categories. At this stage anyway there appears to be a number possible outcomes in the major categories. I think the only one near a lock is Cooper. If Gaga wins the Globe & SAG she will be the frontrunner but a frontrunne...

Re: R.I.P. Sondra Locke

This is a shocker. As I get older 74 doesn't seem that old. Sondra Locke is one of those actresses that I always thought we never really got to see the full potential of. She was outstanding in The Heart is a Lonely Hunter. Later she got stuck in that Clint Eastwood rut - a slew of his lousy movies...

Re: Screen Actors Guild Awards

If she wins, it will be one of the most unworthy acting victories in the history of the Oscars. . It would be one of the most embarassing Oscar wins ever. And I guess that especially the Acting branch will realize that (before it's too late, I hope). But of course, it's not just the actors who vote...

Re: Screen Actors Guild Awards

The Regina King omission upended what seemed the one sure thing this year's Oscars had (well, apart from best song). And apart from Best Actor, which now is the surest thing ever. It was sure even before, especially after I saw First Reformed and realized that Ethan Hawke - good as he is - could ne...

Re: Second/Third Tier Critics Winners

New Mexico Film Critics Association: Glenn Strange Honorary Award – Tim Curry, Kirk Douglas, Angela Lansbury, Christopher Lloyd, and Dick Van Dyke What is up with this? I think it's a great idea. So many great stars and character actors go unrewarded during their lifetime. Each year give it to a bu...

8. The One Scene Wonder. (Maybe two, max). Or as it’s also known as, The Beatrice Straight. Guess some other recent examples from this category may include Viola Davis (Doubt), Ruby Dee (American Gangster) and Dench (Shakespeare in Love).

Re: Broadcast Film Critics Awards

They're in the drama category because they're dramas. You're saying there's no such thing as a drama set in the music world. Would they have to cut all the concert scenes to qualify as dramas? (I know about Walk the Line and Ray. They should have been in the drama category, too.) Yet they gave 5 Gl...

Re: Broadcast Film Critics Awards

But the best argument against why First Man didn't get a nomination is that the studios cheated by pushing A Star is Born and Bohemian Rhapsody for Drama instead of Comedy/Musical. To which I say, if your best defense is that you were up against Bohemian Rhapsody, there's other problems. This is so...

I agree. It's certainly one of the best of this year at least.
