R.I.P Anthony Bourdain

This is sad. I was a fan.

Story.

It was suicide. Tragic. But I have to say it's a very Anthony Bourdain way to go. It wasn't the drugs, alcohol, cigarettes or the weird high-fat/high calorie foods.

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2018

Can animated films be nominated for production design? Isn't that part of the animation? Yes. Animated films are eligible for production design (but none have been nominated before). It's part of the animation but a production designer still has to design it. However, in the case of stop-motion ani...

Documentary Feature Watch

I did it in foreign language films so why not Documentary Feature also? This is where we review and discuss possible Documentary Feature contenders. I haven't seen it but the Fred Rogers documentary Won't You Be My Neighbor seems to be getting lots of raves from all over. Could it be the front-runne...

I actually have seen and loved the first season of the show (The second season STILL hasn't dropped in my local Netflix, for some reason) so I hope so! Ted Danson and Kristen Bell would be very deserving nominees based on what I've seen.

Au contraire. I think they might give them nominations for putting up with that bullshit. (I've seen a bunch of episodes, they're EASILY the best performers).

It could give us an insight on such things. I'll start us off: Citizen Jake (Mike de Leon) ***1/2 - Mike de Leon is o...

I'm not sure if this was at all accurate, but in the case of "Mrs. Robinson", apparently I've heard from at least two sources that Simon & Garfunkel failed to do the necessary paperwork in order to qualify for consideration.
