But I think I’m entitled to dislike the film and the performance, wether or not Mr Boseman has passed away.

Re: GG: Best Supporting Actor

I did it! I swore I wasn't going to mess with my ballot before the night started and I did and I lost a category. The Golden Globes have forecasted Best Supporting Actor 8 of the last 10 times. The two they missed were Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Sylvester Stallone, both of whom were not nominated for...

Re: The Golden Globes Predictions Contest

I’m not on the “hated it” side of Promising Young Woman. I think it’s a fairly entertaining black comedy. It’s well edited and Mulligan deserves a nomination (my wife on the other hand absolutely loathed the film). My prediction of it winning best picture is very much in line with Reza. It’s the cur...

Re: Nomadland

Certainly, this is yet another 2020 movie that desperately warranted the immersive effect of the big screen. I totally understand this point. I was lucky enough to have seen the film on the big screen last November and I believe that the impact of its scope is much different if seen on a tv screen.

Re: Nomadland

OK, back to discussion of the film. Nomadland is a film abut resilience. Bad things happen to good people in the film, but they are overcome. While the film is technically an adaptation of Jessica Bruder's non-fiction book, the main storyline was created for the film. Three of the major supporting ...

Re: Hillbilly Elegy

This is a disaster, probably Ron Howard’s worst film. He just has no business directing this story. There’s no palpable sense of time or place. Ron Howard shoots Appalachia like Burbank. It cuts back and forth between the present and the past arbitrarily and monotonously, more a story assembled tha...
