  1. If I somehow end up going to the movies this weekend, it's a coin flip between this and Harriet.
  2. @CayomMagazine New Journey Pictures is officially choosing Cate Shortland (Somersault, Lore, Berlin Syndrome, Black Widow) as the director of the vampire thriller Bloodsuckers. (Please let me know if anyone had already chosen her for a Y7 project.)
  3. I think Netflix is going to be safe for the foreseeable future, and that's specifically because a large number of people watch and enjoy their original content. Netflix's shows and films keep viewers coming back time and time again. It also helps that their content is much different than the content of Disney+; if people want a different type of content, they'll keep Netflix around.
  4. I'm honestly really wanting to see this. I hope it finds a bit of an audience. It doesn't feel like a flop to me.
  5. It looks intriguingly traditional. Good for John Cho.
  6. I'd love to see you reevaluate some older films like The Truth about the Harry Quebert Affair and the adaptation of Life is Strange. I also think Leviathan from Y4 would make for a good reevaluation.
  7. That's not good... Maybe you should get a security system.
  8. I'm torn between Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre (The Mustang) and Marc Forster (World War Z). I'm not trying to make a straight-up horror film, but I want the film to feel like a nightmare.
  9. New Journey Pictures' Y7 Composers Nicholas Britell. Carver. Carter Burwell. The Needles of Haystack County. Mychael Danna. Untitled Film. Alexandre Desplat. Tealbird. Hildur Guðnadóttir. Bloodsuckers. Basement Jaxx. Megalo Box. Grant Kirkhope. Banjo-Kazooie. Christopher Willis. The Croaking of Prince Chrom.
  10. @CayomMagazine New Journey Pictures is considering making a film about college students struggling to come to terms with the rising population of vampires among the alumni. The tentative title is Bloodsuckers, and actors circling the project include Katherine Langford, Timothee Chalamet, Katelyn Nacon, and Austin Abrams.
  11. You should tell them politely that they aren't welcome on your property.
  12. I know Angelina Jolie's In the Land of Milk and Honey was nominated for foreign at the Globes despite being a United States production.
  13. My updated predictions. Best Actor Drama Christian Bale (Ford V. Ferrari) Adam Driver (Marriage Story) Paul Walter Hauser (Richard Jewell) Joaquin Phoenix (Joker) Jonathan Pryce (The Two Popes) alt: Robert De Niro (The Irishman) If Bardem missed for Biutiful, and if Bichir missed for A Better Life, then Banderas can easily miss for Pain & Glory. I also think De Niro will be snubbed. Best Actress Drama Cynthia Erivo (Harriet) Scarlett Johansson (Marriage Story) Saoirse Ronan (Little Women) Charlize Theron (Bombshell) Renee Zellweger (Judy) alt: Alfre Woodard (Clemency) I was hoping some of those films would go to the Comedy/Musical category instead of the Drama one because I'm rooting for Alfre Woodard... it might not be too late because the HFPA can deny entrance into a category, but those five I put in there feel rock solid. Best Actor Comedy/Musical Daniel Craig (Knives Out) Leonardo DiCaprio (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood) Taron Edgerton (Rocketman) Eddie Murphy (Dolemite is My Name) Adam Sandler (Uncut Gems) alt: Zack Gottsagen (The Peanut Butter Falcon) Four of these actors are iron tight. A24 took a gamble and won big-time for Sandler--with Driver and Pryce both being campaigned for Drama. I have Daniel Craig in the lineup as to acknowledge how clever Lionsgate was to divide and conquer by pairing Bombshell with Drama and Knives Out for Comedy. Plus, Ansel Elgort got noticed in this category for a film with a similar tone. I have Zack Gottsagen as an alt because he's the heart and soul of his film. Best Actress Comedy/Musical Awkwafina (The Farewell) Kaitlyn Dever (Booksmart) Francesca Hayward (Cats) Julianne Moore (Gloria Bell) Constance Wu (Hustlers) alt: Emma Thompson (Late Night) A24 would be foolish not to position Awkwafina for a nomination in Comedy/Musical, even if the film is in the foreign category. That being said, this is a particularly dry year for this category. If Gunpowder & Sky is somehow able to make Elizabeth Moss (Her Smell) a possibility with a "this film has song numbers" argument, that would make this category a lot more exciting. Speaking of "films with song numbers," Jessie Buckley could be a possibility for Wild Rose.
  14. As a Christian, I remain unconvinced that he's really turned over a new leaf. He's saying many of the right things, but there's something about it that seems superficial. If he really is trying to please God, I think he might be trying a little too hard. But the third-to-last song was interesting because it was the only one to blend the elements of faith with the African American experience in a lyrical way, unless I missed something.
  15. Is anyone else listening to Jesus is King by Kanye West? I don't listen to Kanye West very much, but I think the album is pretty good. It's on Spotify. Says every song has less than 1,000 listens but I don't believe that. No way that isn't a glitch.
  16. I read that as "Emma Watson tries;" as in, she puts a greater amount of effort into the project than she normally has in prior films. So while other performancrs are getting flashier notices, Emma Watson at least cares enough about the film so as not to detract from it. Robert De Niro isn't getting supporting actor notices for Joker, but us viewers can tell he cared about the film more than he cared about films like Dirty Grandpa. Emma Watson is likely in a similar position; she's outshined by co-stars but still does her part of the work, as she should. Performers from The Help and the first season of 13 Reasons Why were in similar situations.
  17. @CayomMagazine In a press release, New Journey Pictures stated they are considering pushing A Hop, Skip, and a Jump, the studio's first original animated film that imagines the dramatic aftermath of the race between the tortoise and the hare, to Y8 for a myriad of reasons. "This decision is far from being completely set in stone," fictional CEO Glenn Guthrie clarified. "This is a consideration because NJP runs the risk of releasing two films based on children's stories in the same year. It's also a consideration because we're thinking of positioning Banjo-Kazooie as the big NJP Animation film of Y7. "The Ryan Potter starring film is something we're itching to make no matter what, whether we release it in Y7 or Y8. Our final decision will be based on when we can dedicate the time to do it right. Either do it right or not at all, you know what I'm sayin'?"
  18. I hope The Current War surprises this weekend. It'd be great if a new distributor (101 Studios) is able to make their mark in the industry this weekend. The Current War is one of the most important releases of the year based on how the director was able to shake off the Weinstein influence and make his own cut. I might be seeing it this weekend.
  19. While Jennifer Lopez is a safe bet for Supporting Actress (as she's a candidate for the win) and the film could feasibly surprise in Adapted Screenplay, I think you're onto something; if Molly's Game fizzled out with only an Adapted Screenplay nomination, then something similar will probably happen with Hustlers. STX is unproven at best in the Oscar game. I will say this: that a film like Hustlers is able to get anywhere close is a testament to how strong this fall season really is for film, both in theatrical and streaming.
  20. Great point. Both are great, but Diana Lin had a lot to chew on. She was memorable, too. But an actor or actress of Asian descent hasn't been nominated since Rinko Kikuchi got in for Babel in 2006, so either of them would be great.
  21. 1. Motherless Broolyn 2. Harriet 3. Terminator: Dark Fate 4. Parasite 5. Jojo Rabbit 6. Ford V. Ferrari 7. The Good Liar 8. 21 Bridges 9. A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood 10. Honey Boy
