Re: Glenda Jackson back on Broadway as "King Lear"

A good friend of mine is going to New York in May. He was a bit disappointed that there wasn't anything much on Broadway that appeals to him. I suggested King Lear but he considers it Shakespeare's worst play and even with the presence of Glenda Jackson won't go near it. His loss I suppose - I'd lov...

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

Advise and Consent (Otto Preminger, 1962) 8/10 Riveting political film based on the Pulitzer prize winning potboiler by Alan Drury. Preminger overcomes the stagy premise by shooting the film in widescreen (shot in crisp black and white by Sam Leavitt) and uses extraordinary mise-en-scene for dramat...

Best Film Bay of the Angels Best Director Jacques Demy for Bay of Angels Best Actress **Jean Moreau for Bay of Angels Bay of Angels was a 1963 release in France. Good catch. A number of films are in the wrong year. I started a process over two years ago to add additional categories and found a numb...

Re: Best Supporting Actress 2018

First to go are Emma Stone & Rachel Weisz in what I see as blatant category fraud. They both give brilliant performances but they are co-leads with Olivia Colman. Marina De Tavira & Amy Adams have nothing to so out with them, though De Tavira faired better than her leading lady. That leaves ...

Re: Best Supporting Actor 2018

Thats really interesting. Does anyone know of some site that lists the amount of screen time. Its funny how some people can feel like they dominate a film when in fact have very little screen time.

Re: Best Supporting Actor 2018

I cannot vote for Mahershala Ali or Adam Driver. Driver was outstanding and Ali rose above the material he had to work with but I do consider both actors lead performances (ironically co-lead with another male actor) and therefore will not consider them. Richard E. Grant is the easy winner here anyw...

Re: Best Cinematography 1956

Overall its a very ordinary line-up. B&W is most uninspiring. I voted for The Bad Seed and the nominations for Baby Doll, The Harder They Fall & Somebody Up There Likes Me are respectable at best. I have seen Stagecoach to Fury but honestly can't remember anything about it. The color line-up...

Re: Best Original Screenplay 2018

Its still unbelievable that Green Book won over The Favourite. For me personally The Favourite was best of the year and the best of the nominees and it was a very strong year for original screenplays, not that one could tell from the nominees. The second best was easily Paul Schrader for First Refor...
