    Time to ask this thread another Netflix question – is it worth watching Marriage Story in the cinema?

    To echo others’ reactions, if you can see it in a festival audience then 100% yes go do it. The movie is very funny in parts and an engaged audience is going to love it.

    However, festival energy is something else entirely, and if you live in a part of the country where people aren’t cinephiles (aka not a big city) I doubt your non festival audience theater is going to respond similarly. I saw Parasite (a movie which plays great to audiences) in my local festival and again when it released to regular audiences and the responses were different.

    All this to say, if you’re going to see it in theaters see it opening night and maybe you’ll be in a theater that makes it worth it. Otherwise, invite a few friends over who appreciate a good film and watch it at home, and I’m sure you’ll like it just fine!

    Why are people predicting Jojo Rabbit? I don’t get why it would even be nominated for BP? It’s not beloved by audiences, the critical reaction was fairly divided, and personally imo it was not very good…

    Of the films I have seen Parasite is the BP and Downton Abbey is my favorite movie of the year so far, but I have not seen Marriage Story, The Irishman, Little Women and a few others that are considered possible BP contenders. I also think Bombshell is going to be well regarded by academy members…

    Saw “The Lighthouse” and actually really liked it despite its unevenness. I thought Brad Pitt was great in OUATIH and was fine with his category placement (I know, I know), but am down for Willem to win. The scene where Robert is trying to get the keys and the reaction shot is just his eye was truly incredible. However, I think the film will underperform in total nominations and probably land for certain in Supporting Actor and Original Screenplay. Cinematography, Editing, and Sound categories are potentials.

    Also – I think that Song Kang-Ho will get in Supporting Actor as well. I think that “The Farewell” will get in for Actress (not the biggest fan), Screenplay (has placement been finalized), and I pray Supporting Actress because Shuzhen Zhao in that film is one of my favorite performances this year. Also Bong Joon-ho will win Director. This is going to be a landmark year for Asian representation at the Oscars. I’m here for it.

    Darlings, Thatcher is really amazed by a movie this year. If I did a movie, it would be exactly like that. That humour! That movie deserves to SWEEP all the categories. What a hilarious experience.

    We need it added to your 2019 analysis. I assume it’ll be certified Thatcherian.

    Oscar FYC - Lupita Nyong'o & Elisabeth Moss ("Us") - Best Actress & Supporting Actress. It must happen; otherwise the Tethered are coming.

    I am beginning to realize that our taste is much more similar than I may have previously believed, and I’m kind of in love with it. If ESOS doesn’t want the Prime Minister title anymore, perhaps you should take the “Former” out of your username.

    Ill need Tatcher to watch Luce and hear what she thinks. She hated Parasite which is a red flag for me.

    It’s won People’s Choice Award at TIFF, which is a great sign for a Best Picture nomination, it’s generally beloved by audiences (it got an A from Cinemascore and a 97% Audience Score), and Taika Waititi is a huge enough name to generate buzz.

    I think Bombshell’s only getting Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, and Best Makeup and Hairstyling Nominations.

    Oscars 2020: I stan Joaquin Phoenix, Willem Dafoe, Alan Silvestri, and Dean Deblois.

    Emmys 2020: I stan Logan Lerman, Olivia Colman, and David Harbour.

    Tom Hanks and Amy Adams stan in general.

    I’ll just put this out there, I don’t think Bombshell has to make it in just because it’s political. Vice was satirical in tone and examined a much-lambasted era of American politics (that had time to age about a decade before the film’s release) while arguably appealing to a more male voter base, while Bombshell *seems* to be a straight drama with more conventional, expository storytelling techniques.

    I don’t see cynical liberal white men going for Bombshell in the same way they would for Vice just because they’re both political, in fact I would see it appealing to a much different voter base because they’re such different films tonally. So I do take slight umbrage to those who say it’s taking the “Vice” slot.
