Re: 90th Oscars: Ceremony & Pre-Show Discussion

But yes, what sealed the deal for me was the disrespect to Jeanne Moreau. Unforgivable. It only reinforces my stand that the Oscars should leave world cinema alone, since they are only capable of randomly hand it meager crumbs without ever fully recognize its true merit. Leave her out of your In Me...

Re: Categories One-by-One: Foreign Language Film

I have to be the semi-dissenter on A Fantastic Woman; I didn’t think it was much of a movie. I liked the first 15 minutes or so – the set-up – and the initial scene with the female cop. But too much of the rest of the movie was a retread of so many civil right movies I’ve seen over the decades. BJ ...

Re: Academy Members' Brutally Honest Ballots

She was offended by Armie Hammer hitting on Timothée Chalamet because he looked 35 and Chalamet looked 17, But why offended? I don't understand, sorry. Is there any (crazy) law in the US which prevents a 17-year-old person (17, not 13) from having sex with whomeer he or she wants? It depends on the...

Re: Evaluating the nominees

BEST PICTURE 1. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Raw, intelligent, very well-written, populated with the kind of characters you'd never want to go out with in real life, yet feel so interesting and unpredictable as portrayed here. And there's clearly an "auteur" behind it. Plus, ...

Re: Evaluating the nominees

Rules, rules, rules... And judgement. All the time. One of my dearest, life long friends is right wing. She lives on the occupied territories. And she has a great sense of humor. When I texted her I was going to have my surgery, she asked me what was the hospital I was going to be in so she could v...

Re: Evaluating the nominees

The identity of the person whose point of view is there for us to experience has a significance. The fact that a director is not a native residence of a country his/her film describe is not necessarily wrong - having an alien eye can be a major artistic benefit. Not all films have to be like Lady B...

Re: Evaluating the nominees

it's not being aware of it and thinking you actually get it better than the natives, Michelangelo Antonioni, Sergio Leone, so many others... It's an accusation often directed at foreign directors who dare to make movies about America. I always choose not to care about a director's (presumed) intent...

Re: Evaluating the nominees

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (At least Dogville's fundamental misunderstanding of America was played as parable) I guess I needed an American to clearly verbalize to me my basic discomfort with this film - although it seems you were more antagonized by it than I was. Well, one can misu...

Re: Your Oscar Ballot - Best Film

I've finally seen them all.

1. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
2. Phantom Thread
3. Lady Bird
4. Call Me By Your Name
5. The Shape of Water
6. Get Out
7. Dubkirk
8. The Post
9. Darkest Hour

But only 1 to 4 are really good, and deserving of a Best Picture nomination.

Re: Academy Members' Brutally Honest Ballots

A ballot from someone in the Executive branch of the Academy. This one especially should quit cocaine soon. She was definitely high on something. It could have just been that she was delighted to be given the opportunity to pat herself on the back. Trust me, Big Magilla: cocaine. And not the best k...
