  1. At this point the question isn't whether it's gonna be big or not, but exactly how big it's gonna be. The budget should be low enough anyway for it to make it back many times over.
  2. Fences was one of the better nominees this year. Kinda overlooked in general. Among other things it's a much better play adaptation and a drama about the passage of time than Moonlight.
  3. It's weird to me, especially after the first trailer's success, that there's been so little movement (at least officially) on the second film. You'd think they would have cast and started shooting it by now to strike while the iron is hot. It's one big single story so it'd make sense to release them within about a year of each other rather than go for the usual 2-year sequel wait.
  4. Best Picture predictions-2017!

    Gravity and The Martian both premiered at festivals. Toronto shows basically everything anyway, so if a movie's good, premiering there would be nothing but good publicity.
  5. Well, the category is "Best Picture of the year", not "Best thing this director's ever done". I think very few people would disagree that The Departed was the best movie among the nominees that year. No Country also got really lucky that there was no typical safe "Oscar movie" competing with it, so they had no choice other than to give it to something so dark and ruthlessly unsentimental.
  6. The Classic Conversation Thread: The Sequel

    I don't think I'll ever get tired of the Chrome thing that automatically changes millenials to snake people.
  7. The Classic Conversation Thread: The Sequel

    Thinking about it Hugo is actually the only Scorsese movie from the past 45 years I don't like.
  8. The Classic Conversation Thread: The Sequel

    I expected The Beguiled '71 to be just a dated cult curiosity but I'd say it's legit excellent. Really don't expect the Coppola to be as unsparing, and consequently as interesting. Tbh I actually don't see why it had to be remade at all.
  9. strange wording there. Ackroyd also shot The Hurt Locker and was nominated for it, why is this an unexpected decision.
  10. The Classic Conversation Thread: The Sequel

    I'm loving the Mitchum bros more and more.
