Re: Possible Consolidation of the Two Sound Categories

Which is a major shame. The work sound editors do can be rather amazing and it's unfair that morons in other branches who should fucking know the difference are going to deny those sound editors their rightful prizes. Maybe they should treat sound editing as a special prize like Foreign Language Fil...

Re: New York Film Critics Circle Winners

Only two films since 1996 have managed to win all of NBR, NYFCC, LAFCA, NSFC, and CFCA. Those films were The Social Network and L.A. Confidential. So, beware of sweeps as they can often doom the frontrunner. LAFCA, NBR, and NSFC seem to be the most likely groups go go against the mainstream, so we'l...

Re: Knives Out reviews

There was some good humor here and there, but I agree it was rather tedious. It's a great cast and they largely play unlikable characters, which makes things difficult to appreciate. If this was an homage to clue, it was a terrible one. Clue was a slapstick farce where everyone was a murderer, but y...

Re: Campaign 2020

To be fair to Warren, she did eventually come out with the actual tax plan for funding M4A. The problem is that we're very early in the process. You know who STILL hasn't, in 4 years, found a way to explain how he would pay for any of his proposals? Bernie Sanders. I don't hear us taking him to task...

Re: Campaign 2020

A couple of points. Someone at another site posited, and I think it's a valid postulation that Elizabeth Warren KNOWS Medicare for All wouldn't pass the Senate, but as an opening gambit, doesn't it make "public option" a much more appealing alternative? The problem we've come across in rec...

Re: Campaign 2020

I doubt she'll run third party. It's all rhetoric. She's a small time politician from a tiny, super-blue state. She will know that she has no shot of winning the presidency and has every chance of being destroyed, vilified, and run out of office on a rail if she helps elect Trump. No, she's just try...

Re: Campaign 2020

Gabbard's campaign is going nowhere and she's running out of money. My guess is that she's sticking around hoping to be the last woman standing for Veep slot and, barring that, she's out by the end of the year.

Is that a separate incident or the incident that led to the stents?

Re: Marco

Marco's behavior was always aggressive and he and I certainly did not see eye to eye. However, his repeated mistreatment of others led to a number of prominent members leaving over the years and refusing to come back. He may have had some good opinions about film, but he always attacked people perso...

D'Arcy Carden has been deserving of a Supporting Actress nomination since episode 1. She is undeniably the best part of that show.

Here's the thing that I think people need to get past for impeachment to be a real consideration. Opening an impeachment investigation is not the same thing is holding a vote on impeachment. Open the investigation so the public can be fully informed on the utter venality and corruption of this admin...

Re: R.I.P. Cokie Roberts

During election season, Cokie Roberts was one of those newscasters I always looked to for quality reporting. I never understood why she disappeared.
