Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

Inevitably, thoughts go back to his rambling Comey questioning. Sen. John McCain Diagnosed With Brain Tumor by PHIL HELSEL and ASSOCIATED PRESS SHARE Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, has been diagnosed with a brain tumor, the Mayo Clinic said Wednesday in a statement released on behalf of the senator an...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

After only six months, Trump is about to match Obama's entire civilian death count from two terms. That is staggering.

Re: Dunkirk reviews

My friend, a film critic from the A/V Club, has seen the film and he says it's very good but Nolan needs to rethink his sound design. He says it's very difficult to understand what certain characters are saying.

Re: Oscar Predictions & Race Discussion Thread - July to Toronto

OscarGuy wrote Although you're being charitable to Logan, I notice that you don't put either Patrick Stewart or Hugh Jackman on the list. Granted, Logan will only boost Jackman's profile for The Greatest Showman, but a case could be made for a career tribute to Patrick Stewart. Of course, that woul...

Re: Oscar Predictions & Race Discussion Thread - July to Toronto

Well, Dunkirk reviews are out so we're now in a different race. Here's what's out that we know is in the running to some degree. I'm going to be very charitable with movies like Logan and Wonder Woman by placing them in the running for Best Picture. These are just films of note and the categories wh...

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2017

Halfway through Spider-Man: Homecoming, I thought to myself "I could probably keep watching this for hours." It's not a unique observation to notice how in the Marvel universe, there's not an incredible difference between television and film. They tend to blend together as part of an ongoi...

Has anybody seen the trailer for 'Darkest Hour?' It looks very strange and broad. Not terribly impressed.

So that puts 'Downsizing' in the company of 'La La Land', 'Birdman', 'Gravity', and 'Black Swan' among recent films.

Re: 2016-2017 Emmy Awards

I couldn't get through the season two premiere of Master of None. An homage to 'Bicycle Thieves' opening with a slow-pan to a stack of Criterion Collection DVDs. Nice. Subtle. I can live with that. What I can't live with is that instead of searching for a lost bicycle, it's Dev's lost cell phone, wh...

Re: Oscar Predictions & Race Discussion Thread - July to Toronto

America, you were supposed to watch Arrested Development, not elect it.
