    George Clooney’s new directing effort “Suburbicon” starring Matt Damon, Julianne Moore and Oscar Isaac has been getting very mixed reactions since it has been submitted to both Venice and Toronto!

    As of right now ahead of its main release date of October 27, the film is sitting at 44% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 39 reviews. Has “Suburbicon”‘s Oscar prospects officially been doomed?

    Yup. Might be a long-shot for a Globe nod or two if the Musical/Comedy fields prove supremely weak, though.

    Even before both films premiered, I always suspected Matt Damon would probably promote a stronger campaign for Downsizing rather than Suburbicon, although I am looking forward to both films.

    Odds are, Damon won’t wind up recognized anywhere for either picture.

    The Monuments Men shows what can happen with George Clooney’s directing efforts when they get mixed reviews. The academy is fine with him as a director, but he gets no free passes just yet.

    Well the movie is coming out next week. Is anyone still interested in seeing it despite the very mediocre reviews it’s getting?

    I’ll still check it out for Queen Julianne.

    This looks like a great vehicle for Moore. If she was going lead I could see a Comedy Golden Globe nom.

    It’s currently sliding down to 37% on the Tomatometer last I checked.

    Now it’s at 29%! Suburbicon is definitely failed Oscar bait this year, and could go up for some Razzies.

    Spoiler inside.

    So I went to see “Suburbicon” yesterday and I did really like the movie. It’s the 1950s and Suburbicon, USA is the perfect shangri-la place to live for whites – where they could have their non-inclusive enclaves detached from reality – assuming which is why the subplot was a black family integrating into their “so-called” faux garden of Eden. The reaction to the integration was a very powerful part of the film, which in some ways distracted from the craziness and criminality going on with the Lodges, the white family. Is this the Make America Great Again era so many people are talking about these days? Because there is nothing great about a group of white Americans trying to intimidate the Meyers family by loudly singing a Christian hymn or putting up a fence (wall) outside their home.

    Performance wise, I would give nods to Julianne Moore, Noah Jupe, and Oscar Isaac, the insurance investigator who stole the scene. No one from this movie will probably get any award recognition, although I would like to see Isaac get a nomination or two depending on how the competition plays out – still so many contenders to see.

    The ending was a hopeful message, putting the hopes of society as we always do on the youth. Except for the Meyers and the uncle, where were the adults?

    Overall, a solid B.
