  2. Jaden Michael (Wonderstruck) Evan Rosado (We The Animals)* Josiah Gabriel (We The Animals)* * = not sure about age
  3. I saw it a week ago... I thought this was the spoiler thread and posted that by accident.
  4. I want to bet 100 points that Once Upon a Time in Hollywood receives an OW gross over $35M.
  5. That is some exciting news! They got themselves a great writer, and I'm sure One Piece would make for a very popular series on Netflix! Content like that is the reason why Netflix would still survive in the Disney+ era.
  6. I can't wait for the time to come when BOT can do a Top 100 of its own for the 2010s decade! Of course, we'd have to wait about a year, but it'd still be awesome.
  7. I think the film looks very good. Might not be as strong of an Oscar contender as it sounded on paper, but if Marielle Heller continues to make greats films, I'm confident her time will come eventually. Heck, it might come for this. I don't know.
  8. I don't think Marvel Studios will ever escape Disney's grasp. Disney owns Marvel. They're not as dumb as to let it go.
  9. I can't believe there'd be a voting scandal for something like this, let alone the fact that JamesCameronScholar had duplicate accounts. Disappointing. Yeah, I would very simply leave the list the way it is as a historical record, and I'd make a list next year rather than the year after.
  10. I personally think both of them are locks because of how cutting edge the animation is in both films. Though it's understandable to be skeptical on both because DreamWorks has had little by the way of luck as of late, Frozen 2 has yet to release, and both films are sequels, which are oftentimes snubbed.
  11. I don't think the "#1 film of all time" moniker will belong to an original film or a franchise-starting film ever again. But kudos to Avatar for being able to hold onto #1 for nine and a half years. Something was going to beat it sooner or later.
  12. So it's been a while since I've shares thoughts about these nominations, so what better time than now: Looks like I Lost My Body was a film that I was definitely wrong about. It ended up winning the main prize at Annecy. Plus, it got a Netflix deal. And it won a prize at Cannes. So, yeah. Everything is falling into place for its success. I'm not sure what that means for Klaus though. Perhaps Netflix has enough clout to get both of those films in the race. Funan released limited and didn't make much of a splash. Other films already or to be distributed by Gkids include Okko's Inn, Buñuel in the Labyrinth of the Turtles, Promare, Another Day of Life, Children of the Sea, Weathering With You--those are the films that seem to be the ones that will receive awards-qualifying runs. Speaking of Weathering With You, it premiered in Japan, and some Kotaku journalist said it was "good but flawed". I'm sure it'll still be popular, and I hope anime fans will continue to put enthusiam behind it, but if the film isn't masterful like that article suggests, voters might not give it the nod. We'll see. The other two animated films screened at Cannes were The Swallows of Kabul (from the Ethel & Earnest studio) and The Bears' Famous Invasion of Sicily (from the French studio that helped make The Red Turtle). Neither of them made too big of a splash. But Hollywood animation might have another film to contribute, that being Abominable from Pearl Studios. The trailer impressed those who saw it, and it releases in a sort of sweet spot between Angry Birds 2 and Frozen 2, increasing the likelihood of good box office. We'll have to see whether it falls out like Smallfoot or if it manages to keep itself in, because Dreamworks could use the credence of two nominees in the same year. So far, the "no matter what" films are: Frozen 2 How To Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World Toy Story 4 And other films that I think have a chance are: Abominable I Lost My Body Klaus Missing Link Weathering With You
  13. Florence Pugh is an exciting talent and I'd totally support her as "the next Black Widow"!
  14. It's really nice to see that a relatively unknown actor such as Simu Liu has been given a big chance. I'm also a fairly big fan of the subtitle.
  15. Hello! Just popping in to say that I've changed my display name to SLAM!.
  16. One film that I didn't realize was getting an agressive expansion was the comedy The Art of Self Defense. Bleecker Street leapt from 7 theaters to 550 theaters according to Box Office Mojo, and I'd say having a shot at a >$1M weekend gross in that amount of theaters isn't too bad for a distributor that likely has some sort of deal with the Amazon streaming service. I hope the film is able to leap over The Secret Life of Pets 2 and Avengers: Endgame to find its way into the weekend's top ten.
