    Bad storm prevented me from seeing stretches of the Comey interview, but hopefully it will be up on YouTube soon. From what I saw, it was pretty stunning and volatile.

    No answer.

    Pick a novel you would like to see adapted into a feature film. Who would star in it?

    No new question?

    How would rank the Original Score nominees of this year’s Oscars and some brief thoughts if you can?

    I did at least tolerate all of them, but my ranking would look like this:

    1. Phantom Thread
    2. Dunkirk
    3. The Shape of Water
    4. Star Wars: The Last Jedi
    5. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

    Phantom Thread, by Jonny Greenwood, is a transcendent piano based score. Every particular piece of music just serves to bolster the meaning woven on screen by Anderson’s magnificent direction. “House of Woodcock” is a standout if you like piano.

    Dunkirk, by Zimmer, takes what could be annoying as fuck and makes full use of it. That ticking clock thing just rattles behind or in the forefront of the arching orchestral instrumentation to deliver a truly tense score. Zimmer is no stranger to evoking intensity with his scores, so the ticking clock thing works as a wonderful musical motif here.

    The Shape of Water is a gentle yet brimming combination of “alien” woodwinds, strings and other subtle instruments to evoke a general love/happiness vibe. It’s quite stirring work from Alexandre Desplat.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi by the great John Williams is somewhat (re: a lot) recycled, but it still works as franchise mainstay, that score. “Rey’s Theme” is a bit less prominent, as is “Kylo Ren’s Theme” in favor of a bit more silence to the proceedings. The orchestral stuff still pays off in the emotionally charged moments.

    Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri is a heck of a mixed bag. A mostly dark, ambient score with some more blaring songs chucked in for good measure. Some moments just blare your ears with music, while others are more atmospheric. A greater balance needed to be struck by the usually brilliant Carter Burwell. However, Burwell knows how to make the guitar twangs hit home; I really liked the main theme in particular which stands out with a truly gripping atmospheric six stringer amongst the light touch of the piano and violin strings. If only the score was just consistent, it would be more effective, considering the dark tone of the film as a whole.

    Absolutely. Toy Story 3 came pretty close…in fact I would argue that if the eventual winner didn’t happen that year, it would have won. As for Director, Idk. No nominations there for an animated film yet.

    Don’t think so, bias against animation being for kids and also Best animated feature goes to the director of the films now so they won’t waste a spot on giving them a nomination in best director either unfortunately.

    SQ for Foreign language film

    That’s a tricky one for me since I have seen some really great ones that could have been nominated get overlooked in both categories so I’m going to say yes but optimistic yes.

    No. The Oscars are an American organisation. To award the most prestigious award to a film not in the English language at least would be unlike them. I think as membership starts to change around, that could be a possibility in the near future.

    Do you think a performance completely in a foreign language has a chance of winning an Oscar? I thought about how Mads Mikkelsen won Cannes for The Hunt but failed to show up for even a nomination. Do you think the Oscars are biased against foreign language performers?

    Considering the previous winners who have won for foreign language films (and nominees), of course. And I personally don’t think they’re biased against them, it’s just a matter of competition.

    If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live and why?
