    Just watched Simon Curtis’ WOMAN IN GOLD and it deserves MAJOR Oscar and other awards season recognition (: imo this film ahs the best interweaving of past and present I recall seeing in a movie. Three of the perfomrances are superb and the rest are all excellent: Ryan Reynolds does the best work of his career; Katie Holmes, suprisingly superb and speaking entirely in German, and especially, of course, the fiery amazing mesmerizing Queen Helen Mirren (: I love this movie. I love it when movies grip me fromt he first moment to the last without slacking. I loved both “parts” of the movie and loved the intelligent scripting and directorial choices that were made. It wasn’t as heavy-handed as some of these types of holocaust films can sometimes be. The sets, costumes, editing, camera work were all exceptional. I certainly expect Helen Mirren to be up for awards and critics prizes for her work. My only worry is that the film was released too early in the year and will be overlooked as newer films come out at the end of the year. But I will never forget Mirren’s performance, it’s one of her very best, which is saying a great deal, since she is truly one of our greatest actresses alive today (: If you haven’t seen this movie yet, it’s out on DVD and is definitely worth watching!

    So once again my comment on this:

    Helen is good, but not Oscar-worthy. Ryan Reynolds is shockingly good (I
    mean he’s a terrible actor overall), but not Oscar-worthy. And I
    consider your Katie Holmes mention as a joke – like she was on screen in
    two scenes and did absolutely nothing. If you want to name a strong
    supp. female it’s Tatiana Maslany (didn’t you change up her name with
    Holmes’?). The movie have mediocore reviews I doubt that it’ll happen in
    any category. I mean don’t get me wrong I love your enthusiasm, and it’s
    a decent film, the thing is that unfortunately it’s not Oscar-worthy by
    any means.

    Katie Holmes spoke German in it?

    Isn’t it one of Weinstein’s? They’re spreading themselves quite thin this year already.

    Southpaw, Carol (US only), Burnt, The Hateful Eight, Macbeth, Tulip Fever and Regression. It would have to take some serious scathing reviews for the unseen films of these for Weinstein to push The Woman In Gold anywhere this upcoming season.

    It was okay. I don’t think it does deserve Oscar play.

    It made lots of money, I heard there will be a push but I don’t think it will be strong enough. She’s great in it but I don’t see her getting in
