Re: Foreign Language Film Watch

Dogman/Happy as Lazzaro - Italy Italy would appear to have to good ones to choose from this year that are internationally know. Both happen to play at Cannes, both were well received and both one a prize each (Dogman - Actor) & Happy as Lazzaro - Screenplay). But Italy is notorious for going of...

I meant of films this decade, although The Blind Side got its nomination in 2010. I personally don't think The Blind Side's nomination is forgettable. I think it's memorable for all the wrong reasons.


True: worst, not most forgettable.

Re: A Star is Born reviews

I also think that despite all the streaming services, etc that with the demise of the 'local DVD rental store' and the decline of repertory cinemas that its harder to see older and newer films than it has ever been. Yes, but there is (as you say) internet and there are also several tv channels enti...

Re: A Star is Born reviews

It's ignorance to a large extent but more than that people today do not like exploring pre-1970s cinema. It's true of many young film buffs today. And many young and not-so-young film critics, sadly.

Re: A Star is Born reviews

On the other hand, I was shocked and saddened to discover that there are people in their 60s who only know the story from the Barbra Stresiand version, which they (excuse me while I gag), love. Well, the Streisand version is still the only previous A Star Is Born that wasn't initially released befo...

Re: A Star is Born reviews

But let's be honest. Really, you're just laughing at my word choice, so cheers to time wasted. Oh come on, I'd never laugh at you or at your word choice and you know it well. I understand what you mean - but while I think that you are right about the poor storytelling, I have to admit that no "...

Re: A Star is Born reviews

I still have no idea how this actor, who was perfect at playing the second from left friend of the lead, suddenly became Orson Welles. The mysteries of the universe are endless, it seems. But if you notice it's only Americans (plus, I am sure, anonymous) who take him - and his job as actor/director...
