Re: What's everybody reading?

Since the beginning of the year, I've finished Jane Smiley's A Thousand Acres, Michelle Obama's Becoming, and Edith Wharton's The Age of Innocence. I think I'm going to start my Black History Month binge early with Esi Edugyan's Washington Black and Richard Wright's Native Son.

Re: Honorary Oscars Wish Lists and Speculation

This is just the Academy pandering the black card. Nothing else. It makes them look good with Tyson becoming the first African-American actress to win an honorary award. This is really gross; you sound like a Deplorable. Yes, the only reason black people are given awards is to appease PC culture /e...

Re: Ready Player One reviews

[W]hite males between 25-40 who will shriek with delight when they see the Delorean and Batmobile and E.T. and Michael Jackson and 80's ephemeral pop culture references - and fall into a sugar-rush stupor by the 45th minute. A four-quarter hit like Black Panther this will not be. Goddamn, you naile...

Re: Best Supporting Actress 2017

I wasn't as charmed by Mudbound as everyone else, as I thought it was very heavy-handed. I did like Mary J. Blige, but a nomination seems a bit much. I'll stick with listening to "Be Without You" and "Family Affair" if I want to experience Mary. I like Allison Janney quite a bit,...

Re: Best Supporting Actor 2017

I love me some Woody Harrelson, but his nomination here is pure coattails. My wife, who loves him even more than I do, responded with, "Really?!", when she saw he got nominated. It's a perfectly fine performance but, if there's any reason he actually got nominated, it's for his voiceover w...

Re: Best Actress 2017

I admire that Meryl is getting work (even if she's taking every role for women over 50 for herself), but I've been bored by every single thing she's done since Doubt . She just puts on a wig and reads her lines in a manner that would befit an American dame. I actually have the same feelings about To...

Re: Best Actor 2017

Denzel's nomination is fairly ridiculous for a film that, on paper, should appeal to me as I enjoy Washington, Colin Farrell, and Dan Gilroy. But Roman J. Israel, Esq. is as unwieldy a film as is its title. Washington's acting barely translates through the terrible afro and glasses he'd made to wear...

Re: SAG Winners

I can't remember the last time the four actings winners for the Oscars were so clear-cut for so long (as much as I hope Metcalf and Dafoe keep their early frontrunner steam going). And, yeah, every awards or talk show clip of Chalamet always shows the "It's not Bach, it's so-and-so interpreting...

bizarre wrote:1970: Jane Asher (Deep End)

Man, I watched this just a week or two ago and there's no way I'd file Asher in support. She's in the film nearly as much as John Moulder Brown and, honestly, she's a more dominant force on screen than him.

However, your list is fire. Great selections.
