Re: A Wrinkle In Time

Somehow, in its 15th weekend, on around 250 screens, this grossed around $1.7 million. Compare that to Mother's Day weekend, its 10th weekend, where it grossed less than $1.2 million on nearly 2000 screens. It might be worth noting that going into this past weekend, it was less than $2 million shy o...

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2018

There's also the tired "teachers want to medicate our boys; they don't understand they're just boisterous" hokum that right-wingers like to promote. Uhhh...over-medication is actually a very serious problem facing adolescents (mostly boys) today. Haven't seen the movie, and don't know how...

Re: 2018 Tony Awards

After the performances, I was wondering why Once on This Island wasn't much of a contender in the Revival category--almost all of the predictions I had seen were between the other two. At least based on the number that was performed, I thought it sold itself much better than any other the other nomi...

Re: Coming DVDs

Got an e-mail yesterday that my Woodall set has shipped. Hopefully it comes as fast as the Boetticher set did.

Re: New Developments III

- A loss for Moore tonight would be, on a state level, a big loss for Governor Ivey. She was the only person who could've changed the date of today's election (which would've been irregular, but she still could have) and decided not to. She said she believed the allegations about Moore, and then su...

Re: R.I.P Anthony Bourdain

Very upset by this. I didn't really know Kate Spade beyond the name, but I watched many, many hours of Bourdain's shows. I'm putting this out there again: For anyone who may be struggling with suicidal thoughts, call 1-800-273-8255 any time of day, or text "START" to 741-741 at any hour an...

Re: 2017 Oscar Shoulabeens

I won't say I'm 100% finished with 2017, but I do finally have a list I can be happy with: Best Film: 1- The Lost City of Z (James Gray) 2- Phantom Thread (Paul Thomas Anderson) 3- Dunkirk (Christopher Nolan) 4- A Quiet Passion (Terence Davies) 5- Good Time (Josh and Benny Safdie) 6- One of Us (Heid...

A Star is Born

Trailer

I think it looks surprisingly not bad. Not sure we have a particular need to see another iteration of this story but the buzz on this from early screenings has been very solid.

Re: R.I.P. Kate Spade

It's always heartbreaking when someone commits suicide. My heart goes out to her family and friends. And because you never know, for anyone who may be struggling with suicidal thoughts, call 1-800-273-8255 any time of day, or text "START" to 741-741 at any hour and you'll get a response fr...

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2018

The Rider It may be more-or-less played out in theaters, so you may have to wait for video/streaming, but this is very much worth seeing. It's about a rodeo rider trying to make sense of his life in the aftermath of a near-fatal accident. Worth seeing alone because of the world it depicts--it's set...

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2018

True, but I feel like they could've at least done with A Ghost Story (which I personally didn't care for) what they did with It Comes At Night --push it out wide on opening weekend so you at least get some money then, even if bad word-of-mouth kills it after that. They're not as bad as Sony Pictures...

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2018

Unfortunately I don't have much faith that First Reformed will ever play around me. A24's Lean on Pete only made it to Nashville, at a time when I couldn't get up there to see it, and right now the Belcourt doesn't have First Reformed on their docket at all. On a related note, can we admit that, unl...

Re: 2018 Tony Awards

She's good. Not as slick and polished as some, which may be why some of the people on that Broadway message board didn't like her. (I haven't heard her Sweeney Todd or Follies , so I can't say how she is there.) You almost feel like she's about to hit her vocal limit in "Rose's Turn", but ...

Re: 2018 Tony Awards

Not part of this year's Tonys, but potentially part of next years (because the production is looking at a transfer) is the Gypsy revival with Imelda Staunton that played the West End a couple of years ago. I'm only bringing it up because it was filmed and broadcast in theaters (and I think, on telev...

Re: Best Original Story 1950

I'm sure that some John Ford auteurists could make a case for it, but I found When Willie Comes Marching Home close to insufferable. As others have said, the material was the sort of lightweight stuff that could have been mined for comedy, but it's aggressively sincere to a fault. And since we're t...
