  1. I think Leo gets in but that's in large part because I think Hollywood is a very strong contender that could well take home the whole thing - if the movie underperforms that expectation at all Leo is in trouble (sadly - best male performance of the year). I still think Murphy is getting underrated. Dude is hosting SNL and doing his standup special right as Oscar season is really picking up, and its going to drive a big time welcome back narrative IMO. I have him as my fifth or sixth nominee but like the third most likely to actually win, if that makes sense.
  2. Renee is as good as hyped and the movie around her is justttttt good and watchable enough to add up to a pretty satisfying experience. Not gonna be in my top ten of the year or anything but yea, pretty good!
  3. Yea I'll be convinced of that one when I see it tbh (also isn't it coming out Thanksgiving?) West Side Story is a little old hat, I think that In the Heights is the breakout musical of 2020.
  4. Bombshell is apparently screening tonight to press and public with no embargo - they seem really confident. Little Women starts screening October 23rd with the same kind of non-festival rollout - also indicates some strong confidence for the movie I think people are underestimating as a real contender not just to get noms, but win the whole damn thing. Queen and Slim is already getting positive notices ahead of AFI, so Jewell and 1917 (and Cats!) are the only ones that are sight unseen by October 23rd. One more update Picture 1. Little Women 2.

  5. Somewhat off-topic but I just looked through the 2020 schedule and YIKES! If you thought there was hand-wringing about box office decline this year, next year looks terrible - thank god Wonder Woman and Bond move. Something has to fill in August and December, right?
  6. The part where he crosses out the sign that says "don't forget to laugh" and the part where he literally screams the movie's "themes" right before he shoots Robert De Niro are two examples of how head thumpingly obvious this movie was with absolutely nothing new to say about society. However, I thought it DID have something more interesting to say when it came to the Joker as a concept and how we tell stories about superheros/villains. They aren't people that fall into vats of acid, they're just lonely creepos enabled by other lonely creepos. Doesn't really try to say enough about that because it is so focused on SOCIETY. The style was indeed a rip-off but I prefer the derivative but still actually good cinematography, production design, editing, and score that we saw here than the majority of blockbuster movies which appear to be shot in an Atlanta or Vancouver parking lot. I could go for more of the production quality of this in my IP movies. Phoenix was good but has been better in alot of things, much more actorly here. There's some compelling stuff but ultimately alot of missed opportunity.
  7. Looks okay, I think Clint's a boring director outside of any political beefs I have with him (seriously) but I have always been fascinated by this story and its a good trailer. As a flaming liberal who went to a pretty damn good journalism school, the "liberal media" is one of the biggest myths ever constructed. Whether it's the complete butchery of the Iraq War story, or the Michael Brown "no angel" bullshit, or the fact that every news outlet from national to local shows black people's mugshots and white serial killers smiling with their families (that they like turned into lampshades)....it's a messy thing. I have serious empirical evidence (from scholars much smarter than me) showing that the generally considered mainstream media is at best center-right except on like....gay rights and hating Donald Trump personally. Also it's possible for something to both be an absolutely essential freedom and often wrong at the same time. Hell, the New York Times is doing both some fantastic work and some absolutely godawful shit as we speak! Also I will say it's not like Jewell got torn apart and the killer ended up being a person of color or something, dude was like what Stephen Miller would be if Trump didn't employ him.
  8. My main thought on Joker is that it was much more interesting as a deconstruction of superhero movies/stories than as any sort of statement on society or anything.
  9. I have alot of thoughts, some good and some bad, but the most clear one to me is that this movie would have been alot better if it ended like one minute earlier with him on the cop car. What was that dumbass shit at the end?
  10. Also I believe Parasite is ineligible for Best Drama as a Foreign Language entry at the globes.
  11. Futurist, just like all good wrestling heels, it is time to find a new gimmick, buddy. The act is played.
  12. The hatred of "elites" being turned away from rich corporate raiders and onto to regular people with a love of art, progressive values, and deep thinking is one of the great tragedies of our world that explains so much about society today. Anyway, this movie was rad. Hit me hard as someone who has lost a father. Really good stuff here, top three of the year for me with Hollywood and the Farewell.
