  1. I'm still not sure entirely sure Chicago 7 has a solid lead role, like I said in an earlier post the film juggles around multiple cast members fairly well. The supporting actor nominations could be filled by nearly everybody there though.
  2. I thought Redmayne gave his best performance yet but it's hard for me to say he's the sole lead, as the movie juggles a bunch of different characters throughout. He felt like a piece in a larger puzzle based off my first viewing. I could see Sacha and Rylance competing and sure Redmayne is more popular than Rylance but maybe a bit too popular? The academy might try and pivot towards Sacha more since he's gotten one nomination (for writing) before and I could see people being very happy with him getting the win, he was the most charismatic of the bunch.
  3. This is one of those movies that just happened to catch my curiosity. I'm not a huge history or political buff nor have I seen anything from Aaron Sorkin nor have I even seen most of the cast members before so I went into this with the probably the most objective/fresh eyes one could have, and I really enjoyed it. The most obvious takeaway from this movie is it's relevancy, same things happening in here are still happening in america today. If there was an award for best/smart movie release time this would certainly take it. Just as many other people across the internet have been saying the cast is the best part about this movie, everyone comes to play but the particular stand outs to me in no particular order were Mark Rylance, Sacha Baron Cohen, Eddie Redmayne, and Yaha Abdul Mateen II. This is easily the best thing Redmayne has done thus far and while I'm aware his acting/performances can be hit or miss for some people I'm standing by the opinion that he's definitely got chops, especially when the script is good. Sacha Baron Cohen was really good too, especially towards the end when he is put on the stand, heard he's usually a comedic actor and he certainly brings it here. Yahya Abdul Mateen II impressed me greatly, his character is the most sympathetic of the group and the scene of him getting bound and gagged during the trial was tough to watch but unfortunately very reminiscent of the things we see in the news these days so I'm glad they kept that it. The editing was really good as well, weaving back and forth between the trial and the riot/convention that took place a year prior in-universe in a way that could have been jarring and confusing in the hands of lesser editors and writers but they managed to keep things coherent and well-flowing throughout. Overall a very entertaining and relevant movie, maybe not as impactful or as deep as you'd think/want it to be but still a good time and a good lesson in that while some progress has been made the past few decades some things still remain the same, history repeats itself too often.
  4. It seems that Farell just likes to always be working no matter what, which I respect. He's been in a ton of movies in the past few years that range from bad or okay to good like Artemis Fowl, the recent live action Dumbo, Fantastic Beasts 1, The Gentlemen, Widows, etc. He's seems only keen on playing supporting roles for the near future and to never do sequels or be locked into a franchise anytime soon.
  5. Right now off the top of my head: Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. The first Fantastic Beasts wasn't beloved but it got decent reviews and solid word of mouth and managed to make over 800 mil worldwide. Not bad for a movie that marketed itself as a spin-off with practically no recognizable characters or all that popular actors with minimal references to the OG Harry Potter story. Then the sequel happened; which did have some good trailers and had fan favorite character Dumbledore in it, but it wasn't enough. It got torn to shreds by critics and the general audience for being too convoluted, scatterbrained, meandering, and for muddying certain parts of the established HP cannon. It made 200 million less worldwide than the first and had it been on par with or even better than the first one it likely would have cracked a billion dollars. And now the future of the franchise is in jeopardy, assuming they still want to make 5 total.
  6. Apparently its been filming for a few weeks now, just on the down-low.
  7. FB3 aint coming out in 2021. If The Batman isn't coming out in 2021, a movie with likely a lot less set building and green screens/CGI required, then a Fantastic Beasts movie sure isn't coming out before it, mark my words.
  8. I thought they just started filming again? So are they taking a break for another few weeks?
  9. Filming during a pandemic is a crapshoot. I understand people want to get things up and running, but how many false starts will this production be going through before it gets to the finish line? I guess we'll see how this goes
  10. Man, 2020 has just been something else. Chadwick Boseman had the strength that so few do, to film all those movies and do so many great things while battling cancer, he is a legend. This really drives home the point that sometimes we really don't know what other people are going through, what trauma or other issues they're dealing with; really puts things into perspective. With all the hate and anger being spread around these days we gotta remember to spread some love around too, it means a lot to people more than you know.
  11. Broadway Actor Nick Cordero passes away at 41 after months of coronavirus complications
  12. Somebody had to have known about those tweets prior to hiring him, but he wasn't known much by fans back then so they thought it was all good and that nobody would notice. Be careful what you put out there folks, you never know when/if something will come back to haunt you later.
  13. If this ends up going to streaming that would make two of Branaugh's movies that will have missed theaters in the past year, thats crazy.
  14. Today is my birthday and I aint do a damn thing except eat ice cream and play video games. On the one hand it's nice and quiet in my area, but on the other hand I kinda wanted to go out and do something but can't cause of the corona. Oh well, I will survive.
