Re: Animated Feature Submissions

In this Corner of the World would make for an excellent nominee. It's pretty much a less bleak version of Grave of the Fireflies. (Don't get me wrong, it's still pretty sad and harrowing! But it at least ends on a hopeful note.)

Re: Oscar Predictions Thread - TIFF to NBR

Not sure if it was every going to be a contender (or will be when it's seen), but all of Kevin Spacey's scenes in All The Money In the World are going to be reshot with Christopher Plummer in the role, and it's still scheduled to be released this year. Maybe if he's good, Plummer might manage to ge...

Re: Oscar Predictions Thread - TIFF to NBR

The Kevin Spacey charges have created the worst atmosphere for this film to come out. Kind of unfair to the film if that happens (Haven't seen it but I am reading the book) since it IS about a consensual relationship. If The Reader can get nominated and win an Oscar, Call Me By Your Name sure deser...

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2017

I think I may have liked Logan a bit better than you and I also thought Mad Max: Fury Road deserved its Best Picture nomination and The Dark Knight definitely deserved to get nominated (at least over The Reader ). But even I am baffled by a lot of the Best Picture and Best Actor talk Logan has been ...
