  1. Grace Randolph is going to try to make it seem like her rumors about the extensive reshoots are true now even though additional photography for blockbusters almost always involve actionscenes.
  2. Isn't she an American citizen though? And after Mulan, I'm sure she can get a lot of roles outside of China. I don't see why she has to suck up to the CCP.
  3. Because in China, not supporting the CCP means that you are against them. People have to say stuff like this just so that you are on the good side of the CCP and don't have to worry about anything bad happening to you. Remember what happened to Fan Bingbing.
  4. I'm actually a bit concerned about this movie. I heard from a few people that Liv Tyler's character was inserted into this movie after reshoots (she at the very least wasn't in the first few test screenings of the movie). Hopefully this doesn't mean that there was studio meddling and stuff.
  5. Spoiler free trailer. Actually really good trailer considering that it shows a lot but reveals absolutely nothing.
  6. I hope Celeste doesn't find out that Renata is hanging out with Mary Louise.
  7. Moreso that she doesn't fit very well in period pieces. Her acting style is pretty modern and unless she is in a Marie Antoinette type movie, I just can't see her fitting in. Her acting in The Age of Innocence, if you ask me, was carried by the complex and layered script and the other period pieces I have seen her in (haven't completely watched the 94 version btw) don't really have that. I also hate The Crucible partially because of this (she's literally just playing a worse version of her character from The Age of Innocence in it).
  8. It certainly isn't in the same league as those films (Margaret is in my top 5 and Let the Right One In is in my top 20 and those other two films end up somewhere in my top 100) but I think it's at a level just below those films. And Lady Bird is an insufferable snot (like a normal teenager) but the movie does such a good job of getting in her head and I just can't help but relate to her. And it's not just because of the writing but also the directing.
  9. This is nothing like a Nolan film. This is more a Ken Loach film or Shoplifters from last year with an absurdist tone. Hell, I wouldn't even compared this film to the films of other directors. This is very inherently a Bong Joon Ho film.
  10. Probably the most horrifying movie I think I'll see the whole movie. I'm still not sure if its a masterpiece but it's so close. This movie is extremely dense and really needs more than one viewing. I think this is the film where Bong Joon-ho has pretty much perfected his skills as a director. I love how it presents classism almost as if it's subconscious and how the movie shows the Park family literally looks at them as the enemy. Also has the best version of the upstairs-downstairs metaphor. Unlike the other versions of it, this version is extremely volatile.
  11. I can only think of four coming of age films from this century (Margaret, Moonlight, Persepolis, and Let The Right One) that I would consider better than Lady bird and one of those got more acclaim than Lady Bird.
