Re: Beautiful Boy reviews

One of my biggest nomination wishlist items this year is for Brian Tyree Henry to find his way into this category for his brief, but devastating turn in If Beale Street Could Talk

Re: The Favourite reviews

Just saw The Favourite last night at a private screening in NYC. Wow. I want to co-sign much of BJ’s reaction below, especially his thoughts on the screenplay which would seem like a very easy winner this year. All three actresses (Rachel Weisz, Emma Stone, Olivia Colman) are giving career-best perf...

Re: Film Independant Spirit Awards

Justin Torres, the author of We the Animals, is a friend of mine so I’m very happy for the success of the adaptation of his brilliant novel. Some years ago, I hosted a party in his honor at my house — he is a lovely person.

Re: The Deuce

Did anyone else watch the remarkable season finale last night? I did and I thought it was a fantastic conclusion to a strong season. This season started out slow but ultimately had a huge payoff. I always thought that either Lori or Dorothy/Ashley was not going to survive the season. I thought, of ...

Re: If Beale Street Could Talk reviews

I got to see If Beale Street Could Talk last night at the National Air & Space Museum in Washington, D.C. as the closing night event for the Smithsonian African-American Film Festival. Director Barry Jenkins and stars KiKi Layne, Stephan James, and the luminous Regina King were all in attendance...

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody

I think the Sacha Baron Cohen-led version of this biopic would have fared better without the rest of the Queen bandmasters sanitizing the story within an inch of its life and making themselves look like saviors which is apparently what has happened with this movie. Rami Malek will probably not make ...

Re: A Star is Born reviews

A Star Is Born is a huge crowd-pleaser and has just enough deviations from the other three versions of the story to make it special all on its own. I would say that the first 20-25 minutes are the film's best. The introductions of both Jackson Maine (Bradley Cooper) character in a highly-charged mu...

Re: Honorary Oscars Wish Lists and Speculation

This is just the Academy pandering the black card. Nothing else. It makes them look good with Tyson becoming the first African-American actress to win an honorary award. This is really gross; you sound like a Deplorable. Yes, the only reason black people are given awards is to appease PC culture /e...

Re: Festival Line-ups

Do you think that Olivia Colman is becoming an early “favorite” for Supporting Actress?

Re: The Deuce

I’m definitely tuning in tonight. Earlier today, I watched the season finale to refresh myself. I’m excited for the time jump. It’s the year before I came on the scene!

Re: At Danceteria and Other Stories by Philip Dean Walker

I have a quick favor to ask. Amazon customer reviews are important for increasing search engine optimization and help promote work by authors who are not part of the “Big Five” in publishing. As you may know, I have published two collections of short stories in the past couple of years: At Danceteri...

Re: Honorary Oscars Wish Lists and Speculation

Honorary Oscars will go to Cicely Tyson, composer Lalo Schifrin and publicist Marvin Levy and the Irving G. Thalberg award will go to Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall. A bit of a strange choice giving it to Cicely Tyson for her "career in films" especially since apart from Sounder she ...
