Oscars and Other Movie Awards


#1153

Going back to BlacKkKlansman, I think it’s one of those “it can be two things” situations. It’s got a lot of great material in it, but there’s also stuff you wish were executed at the same level but just isn’t. The thing I like least is Ron’s fake-looking Afro. I mean, if there’s some point to it that I’m missing, that’s one thing. Otherwise it almost seems symbolic of what Jim’s talking about, Spike Lee inexplicably sabotaging his own movie.


#1154

I really liked it. I have only seen the films nominated that start with the letter B but I would give it to that.


#1155

Well, like I said, there’s stuff in it that I think were great, and it’d be equally great for the Academy to finally acknowledge Lee.

SAG Life Achievement Award

ALAN ALDA


#1157

I like the idea of giving an award to an entire cast (as well as an entire stunt team). Even if there’s one stand-out performer in a film, he/she wouldn’t be as good without the people they’re playing against.


#1158

Oh, yes, so do I! Have I just been blind and never noticed this before, or is this a new thing?


#1159

The SAG awards have done it for a while.

Edit:


#1160

I watched Vice and although I enjoyed it, and found a lot of it fascinating, it was also a bit of a mess. The tone of it shifted too much and feel like it couldn’t really decide what it wanted to be. Less would have definitely been more.

There was a lot of really great performances though and it’s defintely worth watching but out of Vice and Black Panther, which is the only two nominees I’ve watched so far, I enjoyed Black Panther more.

Neither are polished enough to be winning a best picture Oscar.

Out of the other 6 I plan to watch Blackkklansman, Roma, the favourite and the green book.
I’ll only watch the other two if I have surprise time on my hands.


#1161

#1162

#1163

Steer into the curve. Get Liam Neeson.


#1164

But make him read out all of the nominations over a telephone.

“I don’t know who this actor is. But if he wins the oscar, I will find him…”


#1165

Y’all realize who wins in the “no-host Oscars”?

The producers. Finally, when they tell the network they will be “on time”, they bloody mean it.


#1166

After watching Roma last night, I think it’s time for:

  1. Roma
  2. A Star is Born
  3. BlacKkKlansman
  4. Green Book
  5. Vice
  6. The Favourite
  7. Black Panther
  8. Bohemian Rhapsody

Roma was a beautiful movie. The black and white is so crisp and detailed that it felt like it was in colour at certain points. My overall reaction is that I didn’t love it, but I was often amazed by it. That gives it the edge for me, though it means that I didn’t love any of this year’s nominated films. In this category, at least, since most of the animated features are great.

Shoplifters is pretty good ,but I think that Burning is the one for me. I haven’t seen all of the films that were nominated over this, but Cold War left me (a-hem) cold. I know that I’m very much in the minority there though.


#1167

Here is how I would rank them (I liked all of them):

  1. The Favourite
  2. Roma
  3. Black Panther
  4. BlacKkKlansman
  5. Bohemian Rhapsody

Will someday watch: A Star Is Born
No freaking way would I ever watch: Green Book, Vice


#1168

Why not Vice?


#1169

A movie about Dick Cheney? I’m good.


#1170

I understand that, and I tend to like McKay’s comedies better. But why not Green Book? I haven’t seen it so I’m not defending it.


#1171

I don’t really like those kinds of feel-good movies about race relations. Although I guess you could ssy Blackklansman falls into that category to some extent.


#1172

Blackkklansman at least acknowledged that white supremacy is still a thing. Not at all subtly, but it did. Green Book is very much a “racism sure was a problem in the 60s (and even then mostly just in the south)!” movie.
