Re: Last Seen Movie - The Latest Movie You Have Seen; ratings

Kursk (Thomas Vinterberg, 2018) 6/10 The Kursk was a Russian submarine that on a routine Naval exercise sank in the Barents Sea in August 2000 after an explosion on board killed all 118 crew members. This formulaic but heartbreaking disaster recreation focuses on the 23 crew who survived in a compar...

Re: 2018 Oscar Shouldabeens

Yalitza Aparicio's nod has been viewed as an add-on to the spate of Oscar nods received by Roma. However, it's an important character - the selfless maid who is an integral part of the family - and one who is easily recognised as being part of many cultures across the world, historically from ancien...

And on this day in 1962, they posted a long piece about Grace Kelly returning to the screen to star in Hitchcock's Marnie . https://timesmachine.nytimes.com/timesmachine/1962/03/20/82041138.pdf This episode in her life was covered in the film "Grace". Hubby was dead against her returning ...

Re: 2018 Oscar Shouldabeens

So here's my take on what, in my opinion, was a fantastic year for films. How fantastic? I might take my entire top ten from 2018 over anything from 2017. (Maybe not...I'd have to do some rewatching to know for sure, but it's close.) Best Film: 1- First Man But First Man 's screenplay doesn't even ...

On this day, March 19, 1937, the New York Times reported that it had heard from a source close to David O. Selznick that Miriam Hopkins, Clark Gable, Leslie Howard and Janet Gaynor had been selected by Selznick to play the leads in Gone with the Wind to be directed by George Cukor. Tallulah Bankhea...

Re: Last Seen Movie - The Latest Movie You Have Seen; ratings

Footnote (Joseph Cedar, 2011) 7/10 Amusing comedy with Ealing overtones has simmering familial tensions running below the surface. It's almost a flip view of Bergman's "Autumn Sonata" - which was about the clash between a world famous concert pianist and her meek daughter who looks up to h...

What about the Oscar won by Miklós Rózsa for the film's magnificent score? Unless you prefer the Franz Waxman score for The Nun's Story?

Lean on Pete (Andrew Haigh, 2018) 6/10 Relentlessly downbeat film has an intensely raw internalized performance by Charlie Plummer who begins to (literally) run each time life brings a blow. A lonely teenager, living with his jovial but neer-do-well dad, finds a job looking after the race horses of ...

Re: 91st Oscars: Ceremony

So, I was busy crafting Who'll Be Back? and didn't have much time to reflect on the show after it passed...but I find one thing puzzles me in retrospect. I could understand (even while I disagreed with) most of the changes these new producers wanted to make. But why on earth did they want to jettis...

Re: The 20th Annual Who'll Be Back?

As usual an excellent read and sum up, Mister Tee.

Emily Blunt should now be seriously considered as a future contendor especially after the reception she got for both of her films last year. She has been simmering under the radar for too long already.
