  1. So it seems Jen was cheated out of a credit.... Spoiler warning! https://moviepilot.com/p/jennifer-lawrence-mother-score-voice/4373783 also: http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/movies/la-et-mn-mother-darren-aronofsky-meaning-backlash-20170920-story.html
  2. Well, I guess I'm not out, seeing all of your reactions. But while I don't think it looks as good as the first (hard to do the whimsy on a sequel) it wasn't on my radar the first time. I saw it on 'on demand'. So this time I'll see it in theaters, anyhow, and I hope it will surprise.

  4. Yeah, I'm glad she did this, and I know she wants to do indies, so there are probably more to come. She'll do the big stuff too, of course
  5. This article has thematic spoilers (Jen discusses the metaphors and allegories) but not actual action. And it's a good article, imho. And I love that Jen has DA programed into her phone as 'The Dark Lord'. Every couple should have pet names.... https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/19/movies/jennifer-lawrence-darren-aronofsky-mother-explained.html?smid=tw-nytimesarts&smtyp=cur
  6. Here's probably my last post on mother! budget unless I get something definitive. The media were all saying $13M until BOM just came out with $30M and now they are all saying that. Meanwhile Aronofsky has been talking about how cheap the movie was in a way that sounds to me a lot more like the $13M number. The interview is in Vulture, and I would post the link but it has major spoilers and I am not sure if I'm allowed to post article links with spoilers in the weekend thread. You could google the text, though, if you want to find it. Anyhow, I hope it's $13M because I'm glad they made this, but I don't see how they would have thought this divisive a movie would make a huge amount of money to begin with.
  7. OK, I guess I'm not up on the Netflix animosity. The mention of Netflix added nothing to the comment for me, so it could have been omitted, imho.
  8. It isn't physically brave. But risking a career is brave as well. Have you gone into a drug house or risked your life in a burning building, or enlisted to fight ISIS? I haven't. But even not in that context, there were things I was apprehensive of doing. You can call the statement defensive, and since it never once struck me that way, I will have to consider it from your point of view. I was reading it as, 'we took a risk, and we stand by it.'
  9. Well, you're not wrong.... But does that mean we don't want anything new from movies in theaters? I mean it's a huger cost for a theatrical production to take that risk as well. In the end, you like it or you don't, and Paramount can't be surprised there are people who really, really don't. But I do think it should be respected that all involved took risks. Which still doesn't change if you like it or don't! But the reason I am in favor of this movie is I like for my favorite actress to stretch herself into different types of roles, and to take risks. It is a really good thing no one asked my vote for a cinemascore, or I would have ruined their perfect F.
  10. I'm pretty sure they were saying 'do you want original fare or don't you?' Not 'Netflix sucks!'.
  11. None. I saw comments claiming that on twitter, but unless someone snuck a Jen interview past me that I didn't see (you have to admit that that is unlikely), no such thing ever happened. And I'll go further, I couldn't even imagine her saying that. The worst thing is that I think the religious metaphors were unnecessary and somewhat distracting from the main message. It was fine for me, what a movie says isn't ever going to 'offend' my beliefs, I'd just laugh at them. But when they distract from the main message, it, or any metaphor, is a bit annoying. I discarded them like a pickle someone put in a hamburger they handed me, and appreciated it regardless. I think Aronofsky is just really into religious metaphors. I just came back from seeing it a second time. I'm mulling over the review I'm going to give it.
  12. I guess you (and many out there) didn't see this The primary allegory in the movie involves Jen as so of course that was a topic in the promo tour. I don't think that was a spoiler, by the way, as it was OFTEN said in the promo tour, but I tagged it, anyhow.
  13. This posture pretending you are insufferable fan might swing people against her more efficiently if you hadn't trashed her in all your previous posts. And your detailed knowledge demonstrating the effort you go to just to be able to say bad things about her ..... doesn't reflect well. Time to create another sock puppet, really.
