Re: Web of Sex Scandals

I was a big Woody Allen fan but those allegations back in 1992 certainly made me take a step back. Whilst we will never now if he did or did not molest his adopted daughter, there has been so much conflicting evidence in the press and on the internet over the years that it is virtually impossible to...

Re: Web of Sex Scandals

With developments in recent weeks in relation to the on-going allegations against Woody Allen, I suspect it's very unlikely we will see any new films from Woody Allen. It seems like only yesterday (late 1992) since these first came to light. https://www.theguardian.com/film/2018/jan/19/woody-allen-d...

Re: The Post reviews

There was actually a good scene about 10 minutes prior to the courtroom steps moment when a young woman working for the Government approaches Meryl to tell her how much she admires her, etc. That scene worked so well but as is typical of Spielberg he doesn't know when to stop. Every time Michael Stu...

Re: Nominations Landscape -- Part 1: Best Picture

American Honey got no Oscar nominations. I'm not sure where that comparison fits in. Same style of film with The Florida Project earning just one nomination based solely on a swoop of the major critics awards. If it wasn't for Willem Dafoe (lets say Sean Baker regular Karren Karagulian played the W...

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2017

Ouch. I went to The Greatest Showman today and concur with B.J. in his scathing critique of the film. I will add that I found the film to barely have a storyline as is moves from episode to episode. The characters aren't even one dimensional. They are little more then crude sketches giving the actor...

Along with the BCC, CNN is only available via cable TV, which I don't subscribe to. Of course we hear the appalling daily comments Trumps on the news.

Re: Pre-Christmas Look at the Top Races

I think James Gray would make a great out of the blue choice for the Academy.
