Re: Jojo Rabbit reviews

Mister Tee wrote I'd been taking the advance buzz on Jojo Rabbit seriously fully because of how much I liked Wilderpeople. That film was a charmer. Last week, I wrote that Jojo Rabbit might not crack 75% on RT. Today, that's exactly where it sits, 20% up, which is 3% shy of Green Book. It is certai...

Re: Kicking Off the Fall Season

Mister Tee wrote I guess I'm having trouble imagining what new there is to mine from the material that transcends either the '33 or '94 versions. Just doing a professional job on a time-worn property isn't enough to get me excited. Agreed. Which is what I was thinking originally, however... AS PER ...

Re: Hustlers reviews

Yeah, they'd never give it to anyone like Cameron Diaz in a million -- oh wait. I actually don't like this game. I wouldn't have given Cameron Diaz or Tiffany Haddish the awards but I don't like snarking on accomplished comedic performance or the notion that someone like Cameron Diaz, Tiffany Haddis...

Streep will more likely be nominated for The Laundromat.

My friend has seen it. Says unlikely.

Sarah Polley was not Greta Gerwig's co-writer. Polley's decade old script was rejected by the studio. As per IMDb's trivia page on the film:

Ah.

Re: Hustlers reviews

I could see critics lining up behind Jennifer Lopez for Best Supporting Actress. An Oscar, maybe not. This is the kind of performance that sounds like NYFCC.

Re: Kicking Off the Fall Season

Meryl Streep just proclaimed that Little Women is something in the vicinity of a masterpiece. The trailer is certainly wonderful. I remain skeptical at the notion of what must be closer to the tenth adaptation of Louisa May Alcott's book than the fifth becoming a hot ticket with the Academy regardle...

Re: Harriet reviews

Mister Tee wrote The blogger community decided early on that this was going to be the best actress winner, but this one may not end up as successfully as their similar campaign for Gary Oldman did. The film looks routine, and I don't see anything in Erivo's reviews to indicate anything beyond a rot...

Re: Jojo Rabbit reviews

Precious Doll wrote How many people have actually seen Taika Waititi's earlier films (i.e. his native New Zealand films not that superhero film he did)? I enjoyed The Hunt for the Wilderpeople quite a bit but there's a slight calling-card quality to it, even as a $2.5 mil feature. It's very (perhap...

Re: Jojo Rabbit reviews

OscarGuy wrote Such grousing over a film none of us have seen. The only films this looks anything like are Wes Anderson films and while the film appears to be somewhat divisive, those who love it love it unabashedly. But... but... this is an Oscar prediction board? Isn’t grousing the one thing we d...

Re: Jojo Rabbit reviews

Sonic Youth wrote But no one's mentioned the main reason why I think this movie is going nowhere with the Oscars, and it's simply this: the protagonist is a 10 year old boy, and it's about his "coming of age". How many Oscar nominated films fit that profile? I can only think of "Extr...

Re: Jojo Rabbit reviews

Mister Tee wrote Around midnight, post-screening tweets started appearing that were near-rapturous, and the Awards Watch children were declaring the best picture race over. Then, this morning, legit reviews were filed, with significantly different takes. This might be the biggest fall of any buzzed...

Re: A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood reviews

I think Tom Hanks might be very well-positioned to win for a few reasons. He's playing a beloved figure. There's been some reason enthusiasm for him to take on this role. It's been twenty-five years since his last Oscar. He's going through a mild resurgence with well-received unrecognized roles in C...

Re: A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood reviews

My critic buddy just saw it and said Tom Hanks is supporting all the way. He's in no way a lead.
