Re: Cannes 2017

If the trades had anything to say about it, then Toni Erdmann would have won over I, Daniel Blake and Carol or Son or Saul would have won over Deephan. It's all about the jury. I could see 120 Beats Per Minute being a film that appeals equally to Pedro Almodovar, Will Smith, and Jessica Chastain, an...

Re: Wonderstruck reviews

I'd like to think that 'Far From Heaven' would have made the cut had the Academy expanded its lineup, but it was a slightly more competitive year. I suppose its possible that the Academy would have cited 'Road to Perdition', 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding,' 'Talk to Her,' and 'Adaptation' and left one sl...

Big Magilla wrote If there is evidence of Pence and Ryan having knowledge of Russian money laundering they could be impeached simultaneously with Trump. If they were smart, Ryan and McConnell, who is subject to impeachment on the money laundering but not in the chain of command, would move to oust ...

Re: Everything Is Great Again

Big Magilla wrote In order for Rubio to leap over the current cabinet, he would have to become Vice President while Hatch is president. I thought of that scenario, but couldn't come up with a name. Rubio seems as likely as any. I just assumed if Hatch succeeded the presidency, who would make the mo...

Re: Everything Is Great Again

If you're asking me, do I really think we're going to end up with ten years of Rubio following one year of four Presidents...no, I don't expect the system to operate properly. But I've been wrong about everything so far so let's have some fun!

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2017

Aaaaand my winning streak of good 2017 films comes to a close with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. I don't know what possessed James Gunn to tackle Gamora's relationship with Nebula AND Peter's relationship with his estranged father in the same film, but it was toxic. There's simultaneously no breat...

Re: Everything Is Great Again

A recent NYT article outlines how Trump had dinner with Comey, asked for his absolutely loyalty which Comey couldn't give him for reasons of "Uh, I'm the FBI Director," and ultimately Trump fired him. It seems to me there are two things going on: 1) Trump's collusion with the Russians, and...

"Ooh, I don't know about that move," ~ Ghost of Nixon.

Then Ghost of Nixon realizes that he had to worry about a Democratic-controlled House and Senate and President Trump doesn't, says "Lucky bastard."

Re: Everything Is Great Again

I'm reading a lot of articles titled "Democrats confident about their ability to block Trump's legislation" and "Democrats confident about their chances in 2018." In the past year, I've developed a fear of sentences that begin with the words "Democrats confident about..."

House Democrats started chanting "Na, na, na, na/Hey hey/Goodbye" as Republicans passed Repeal & Replacement.

Hope they're right.

Re: La La Land Reviews

I love the film and the song "Another Day of Sun." I don't like the execution. Attempting to do that number in a one shot was just showing off. Technically, it made for some ugly, shadowed faces. Also it robbed the scene of some wit that could've been achieved by melting one Los Angeles lo...
