Re: R.I.P. Bruno Ganz

A fine actor, who's probably been more widely seen in those fake-subtitled clips from Downfall than in any of his other excellent work. That is so true and its so sad to observe the following in the Australian press anyway: 1) Bruno Ganz's passing is getting way more press than Albert Finney got be...

R.I.P. Bruno Ganz

One of the key actors of the German New Wave (though his was Swiss Born). This one is a shocker - he like Albert Finney gave so many great performances in great/good films. He worked with Herzog & Wenders but was never part of the Fassbinder group. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bruno_Ganz https:...

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody

"Almost everyone admitted that “Bohemian Rhapsody” was a guilty pleasure to watch, however, as Rami Malek turned in an Oscar-worthy performance as Freddie Mercury. I cannot parse this sentence. What is the deal with it? I have read it six times and it doesn’t make any sense. It just stops abru...

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody

Regardless of whatever they did the results worked out well for Rami Melak and I think the paragraph taken from one of the Oscar voters speak pieces sums us the films enormous public appeal (just shy of $850 million worldwide and still counting): "Almost everyone admitted that “Bohemian Rhapsod...

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody

but Malick, like Cagney, not only sings, I don't think so. At best, and I'm happy to be corrected, but my understand is that Malick sang the songs but was largely over dubbed over by Freddie Mercurys original recordings. I can claim no knowledge of the musicians but to my ear female singers are far...

Re: Details of the February 24th Presentation

The presentation going overtime is part of the shows tradition and I must admit I think the Oscars will struggle to make their 100th anniversary as everything is changing so quickly, no doubt the show may have 'cost issues' and the nature of the general public viewership is evolving into goodness k...

Re: Details of the February 24th Presentation

Perhaps its the cynic in me but I can't help thinking whoever is pulling the strings is doing so for nothing more than 'change for the sake of change'. Working in the same organisation for most of my working life I saw lots of changes, some of them massive. Most changes were to improve efficiency an...

Re: Details of the February 24th Presentation

FYI it’s the first time since 1992 (that’s 27 years) that the ceremony won’t be broadcasted live by any of the four open tv channels in my country. None of the them will even bother to broadcast the shorter version for international viewers that has been broadcasted since 1983 around here. That's a...

Re: R.I.P. Albert Finney

I've re-seen so many of his films in the past few years, it didn't occur to me that he hadn't made a film in seven years until I came across the notation in this article that Skyfall was his last film. I've watched a lot of his films in the last 2 years or so: Tom Jones, Saturday Night and Sunday M...
