Re: Isle of Dogs

1. Desplat's score was amazing. 2. I enjoyed it, but a lot less than Moonrise Kingdom or Grand Budapest. 3. The racism controversy is interesting (not sure I agree with it, but worth engaging with anyway) but I'd argue Darjeeling is a lot more offensive on that ground - I remember leaving the theatr...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

Few thoughts a) Yeah, most of the people I know are thinking very seriously about Trump launching a war of aggression. His obsession with using nuclear weapons, his warmongering cabinet, his rampant instability... all terrifying. b) I will say that China's "grudges" are very much linked to...

Re: The Americans: Final Season

I was riveted by the first four seasons, but I couldn't watch it after the 2016 elections. It hit too close to home. Maybe I should binge watch the last two seasons and then delve into the final season. Right there with you. I took a long time to start the fifth season and still haven't finished it.

Had I known "This is Me" wouldn't win, I probably wouldn't have listened to it. What an earworm of a song.

Re: The 19th Annual Who'll Be Back?

Some random thoughts inspired by the below If Daniel Day Lewis wants to return, he'll likely get a nomination. I don't know if he'll return, though. I actually can imagine him retiring and then staying retired (a la Gene Hackman). But if he's inspired to return, I've gotta imagine whatever inspires ...

Re: Oscars' Hat Tricks party game

Tee's assertion fits me pretty much perfectly - I find two that are either very strong or very weak, only to be foiled by one of the neighbours. Adapted Screenplay probably has to be the early 90's trio: Silence of the Lambs, Howards' End and Schindler's List are pretty unimpeachable choices. Or may...

Re: Trivia

In terms of straight dollars or multiplier? Because Return of the King outgrossed Lost in Translation by 330 million, but a lower factor.

Not gonna lie, couldn't even finish the Tur interview without wanting to reach through my monitor and <insert random violent act here>. She should be canonized for that.

Re: Black Panther Reviews

I liked it a fair bit. Wouldn't go as far as the raves - Erhlich gave it a B+ which seems fair (I'd probably drop it to a B, though). Glad it's making tonnes of money, curious if Hollywood takes the right lessons or not.

Re: Categories One-by-One: Picture

1. Yes, yes they do. 2. Also yes 3. I think so, but I wonder if the way that AMPAS has been comfortable splitting picture/director means that the enthusiasm for TSOW ends up being directed towards del Toro specifically as opposed to the film in general. 4. Agreed - no hate towards it (I'd argue that...
