Re: R.I.P. Martha Stewart (age 98)

Having been burned for posting R.I.P. Paul Rudd (without indicating he wasn't the most famous actor to have that name), I would have done that, but Reza did amend the title to add her age. The more famous one is only 79, which might have been a clue.

Re: Best Actress 2019

I agreed with all the nominees in a not very impressive year for actresses, and I agreed with the winner. Renée Zellweger is an actress who I've only liked sporadically through her long, spotty career. I liked her in her first starring roles in Jerry Maguire and The Whole Wide World , but couldn't s...

1 (because there is always one!)


You have to give a name. Which one?

I knew that was too easy!

I withdraw my answer but I still think there will be one, I just can't figure out which one.

Re: The Golden Globes Predictions Contest

Reza wrote The less I say about Promising the better. Unfortunately there are too many hysterical people on this board and I don't want them to get into a frenzy and start frothing at their mouths and wetting their pants :P I'm confused. I don't really like the film. It sounds like I might like it ...

Re: Nomadland

I'm beginning to think Nomadland may have peaked with the year-end awards. It was the perfect metaphor for the uncertainty sweeping the world in January. With vaccinations up and new Covid cases down, and Trump finally out of our daily lives, I can see the Academy going in a completely different dir...

Re: Nomadland

OK, back to discussion of the film. Nomadland is a film abut resilience. Bad things happen to good people in the film, but they are overcome. While the film is technically an adaptation of Jessica Bruder's non-fiction book, the main storyline was created for the film. Three of the major supporting p...

Re: Nomadland

It’s more than a month that I’ve seen this film and it’s still lingering. Question for those who have seen it: SPOILER ALERT The final shot of the film looks like a clear tribute to The Searchers. There is a clear relation between Frances McDormand character and John Wayne character. Both are unada...

Re: Rush Limbaugh is Dead

I must be looking at the wrong websites because I never saw anyone rejoice over RBG's death and I'm not seeing anyone rejoicing over Limbaugh's. The sanctimonious right-wing assholes rejoiced over the dirty tricks of McConnell in ramming through a right-wing replacement for her but not over her deat...

Good was the first word that came to mind when I saw this, but I suspect it won't be long before someone equally vile or worse will command his large radio audience with their bile.

Re: Best Supporting Actor 2019

I voted for Brad Pitt, as did the Academy, but this was one of the strongest group of nominees in this category ever. I thought it might be the last time we would see any of these actors in serious contention for Oscars, but here we are a year later with Anthony Hopkins an almost certain Best Actor ...
