Re: The Official Review Thread of 2017

Good Time This may be not he wrong side of bizarre for some (Magilla, I believe you'll absolutely hate it), but I loved this. It's a fairly standard setup--fallout from a bank robbery--but it goes off in several unexpected directions both narratively and aesthetically. It's a crazy trip, and it man...

Re: Academy Members' Brutally Honest Ballots

It is clear that a lot of the Academy members are still confused by the prefrential ballot system.

And like always a lot of them vote for friends or if they feel someone is overdue.

BJ, I don't know if you've seen Black Panther I’ve seen Black Panther. (Which I consider quite an achievement, given the film’s seemingly non-stop attempts to put me to sleep for most of its running time.) Oh, so you don't like super hero movies in general. That explains your very hohum response to...

Rachel Morrison will be back for round 2 next year for Black Panther.

Re: BAFTA Nominations & Predictions

I hope the Oscars make a dent in one of the major categories -hopefully Dafoe over Rockwell - otherwise it's going to be one hell of a boring ceremony.

Unfortunately it looks like it's going to be a repeat of the Baftas all down the line.
