  1. I remember getting the trailer for this in front of the movie Jojo Rabbit, weirdly enough.
  2. Well, this one actually has marketing, for starters.
  4. There's no way Joaquin doesn't win the Oscar now.
  5. There probably is an embargo if the reviews haven't come out yet. But if the film has good qualities to salvage, it's embargo will be no later than Tuesday. If they hold off until Thursday or Friday, that's when we'll know it's in trouble.
  6. I hope Lupita N'Yongo wins the SAG award just to reiterate how badly the Academy snubbed her.
  7. I Lost My Body is at least 3rd place in terms of overall likelihood to win. It was the only animated film besides Toy Story 4 to consistently win the animated film category of critics/precursor awards. The Golden Globes also revealed a palpable reluctance to award the sequel of a Disney film--especially by giving it to Missing Link of all things. I am of the opinion that not a single film in this Animated Feature lineup would make for a bad winner, but if I Lost My Body were to win, that would be extremely meaningful to the animation industry as a whole.
  8. 1. The Gentlemen 2. The Rhythm Section 3. Portrait of a Lady on Fire 4. Sonic the Hedgehog 5. Ride Your Wave 6. First Cow 7. Onward 8. The Way Back 9. Wendy 10. Burden
  9. Personal Ranking 1. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood 2. Parasite 3. Marriage Story 4. 1917 5. The Irishman 6. Joker 7. Ford V. Ferrari 8. Jojo Rabbit (I think all of these films are high-tier quality.) Have Not Seen Little Women
  10. My goal is to to finish Banjo-Kazooie by the end of the week. I'll be in good shape if I knock out this and Yang before my schedule gets too tight.
  11. - The Frozen 2 snub shows that if they have to pick one of two Disney sequels, they will choose the one with more refined storytelling. - A-team Dreamworks is still in the game! Let's hope no B-team films like The Boss Baby get in for a while. - Missing Link could have easily been another Early Man, but animation quality pushed it through, just like it did for The Croods. - Netflix will be encouraged to make bigger steps in the animation game because of this. Jeremy Clapin will definitely be able to make another film, while Klaus affirms the movement to push 2D animation forward. - Animation. This aspect was prioritized today.
  12. This is the most excited I've been for Oscar nominations since the 2015/2016 award season, the year they snubbed Carol out of nowhere.
  13. @CayomMagazine Gavin Hood (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Eye in the Sky, Official Secrets) will direct a tsunami thriller titled Higher Ground for New Journey Pictures. The film will be set in Greece and released in Y7. Casting has not been determined as of now.
  14. Destin Daniel Cretton is the type of director who can pull a lot of emotional weight from even the safest of concepts. Marvel is lucky to have a guy of such caliber signed on for a film. The performances are top notch, though that's not really a surprise. Can it get slow in places? Yes. Should you still watch it? Yes. I gave it an A. It's impacted me positively. It has the message of being a vessel for goodness. Please go see it.
  15. For Your Consideration in All Categories including Best Supporting Actor (Moises Arias) Best Supporting Actress (Juliette Nicholson) Best Cinematography (Jasper Wolf) Best Original Score (Mica Levi) It's true that this Colombian film didn't make the Foreign Film shortlist, but don't let that stop you from seeking out this modern masterpiece. Taking direct inspiration from novels such as Lord of the Flies and Heart of Darkness, this cinematic fever dream follows a small military unit of Colombian children as they aim to watch over an American hostage and a conscripted milk cow. The film boasts an incredible avant-garde music score by Mica Levi. In his role as the "Jack" of the unit, Moises Arias gives a stunning performance that forever divorces him from his days as a cast member in Hannah Montana. Juliette Nicholson shines in her demanding performance as the American hostage. Monos is one of the best films of 2019, standing as further proof that Neon, as a film distributor, is very much here to stay. P.S. Between this and Birds of Passage, we might be bearing witness to the cinematic breakout of an entire country.
  16. I'm really excited to see these shortlists! I only watched 10 documentaries and 10 live-action foreign films due to time constraints, so in some cases, I'm hoping different picks than mine make it onto these shortlists. I purposefully chose not to FYC any docs or foreign films so I wouldn't influence those shortlists more than necessary. This'll be interesting to see!
  17. @CayomMagazine New Journey Picture's Banjo-Kazooie has been slated for release on September 15th, Y7. The main cast: Freddie Highmore as Banjo Beanie Feldstein as Kazooie Gael Garcia Bernal as Mumbo Jumbo Pixie Davies as Tooty Jonathan Groff as Bottles with Madeleine Madden as Humba Wumba and Frances McDormand as Gruntilda In an exaggerated, cartoonish world, Banjo, an anthropomorphic bear, along with Kazooie, the red-feathered bird living in his backpack, must save his little sister Tooty from the clutches of the evil witch Gruntilda who desires to steal Tooty's youth. Along the journey, both Banjo and Kazooie will learn that it's what you are, but who you are that really matters.
  18. 1. Dolittle 2. The Gentlemen 3. The Turning 4. The Last Full Measure 5. Portrait of a Lady on Fire 6. Sonic the Hedgehog 7. Ride Your Wave 8. First Cow 9. Onward 10. Burden
  19. Scott Derrickson was the reason why I was excited for this, but I guess everything happens for a reason.
  20. For Your Consideration Best Supporting Actor (Jonathan Majors) Best Original Screenplay Best Cinematography Best Original Score Best Overlooked Film Best Breakout Actor/Filmmaker (Joe Talbot) This has a great chance of being my last FYC before the shortlists are due. Without further ado, Joe Talbot's debut, The Last Black Man in San Francisco, is a fantastic and earnest drama that everyone should see as soon as possible. It has a conplex plot that is meaningful to the modern world in a variety of ways. This is one of my favorite movies of the year.
