    Having watched Ford vs Ferrari now twice in theatres. I think it’s safe to say it’s better than Once Upon A Time In Hollywood as a movie. James Mangold who’s direction is BEST part about Ford vs Ferrari deserves to be a BD nominee ahead of Quentin Tarantino for Once Upon A Time In Hollywood.

    Darling, I agree. But it isn’t that difficult to be better than that self-indulgent rubbish.

    Theres no way I could sit through Ford v Ferrari more than once. Its way too long and its so basic. No offense to the fanboys.

    What a beautiful trailer.

    I’m assuming that it is. I don’t want to see it as I’ve had my ticket and seat reserved for over a month. ($5.00 Canadian)

    You’re extremely fortunate that your country is playing it in theatres.

    It’s not my country. It’s a theatre owner I’ve known for over 20 years and he’s done something like this before.

    Darlings, Miscarriage Story was a total letdown for my classy taste. I cannot believe how disappointing it was. What was that Disney music supposed to mean? I have to laugh.

    Divorcing really delivered the most compelling performance in the cast. Without a doubt. Sometimes I liked Nose, but he tried too much and Baumbach was really team Nose so shamelessly. The film isn’t even as impartial as it was sold on the trailers.

    I really ended hating Nose and stanning Divorcing so much. And Dern… well, I always enjoy her being shouty but she did the same this year in BLL but much better and more iconic. I really doubt she’s a lock for the dildo. And well… the script had its decent moments but it is really elitist rubbish most of the time. Thatcher is extremely disappointed.

    Writing a post which will piss off many users on Derby.

    Woah

    funny you say that as it is a testament to how good the film is. It proves the point that MS is impartial. People coming out of the cinema half of them sided with Nicole/Scarlett half sided with Charlie/Adam.

    Some people were adamant Nicole was wrong and to blame and others insisted Charlie was the villain. Both characters have deep flaws so every audience member projects different life, relationship experiences and relatability onto the characters and that’s where the divergence in peoples sympathies lie.

    Scarlett is given more opportunity for subtle acting and Adam has showier acting opportunities hence this distinction means people who appreciate different acting side with one or another.

    The more I think about Marriage Story, the more it shrinks on me. They didn’t really give Adam Driver’s character arc a satisfying conclusion, so they gave him a musical number that’s only tangentially related.

    Incidentally, OUATIH and The Irishman have also shrunk on me. The Irishman I would be calling mid-tier Scorcese if not for the final half-hour recontextualizing it as something better, and OUATIH is sloppy.

    Re: Who’s to blame in Marriage Story – my answer is the court system. They were getting along well even though they were divorcing UNTIL the lawyers started making personal attacks and power plays.

    I’m starting to get the feeling I’m not going to like Marriage Story that much based on what I’m hearing on these forums, which is a real shame.

    wow now THIS is interesting because I thought the complete opposite. Charlie gets the better arc, there’s a reason why the film doesn’t end on that performance. There’s scene on the top of the stairs at the end, maybe you thought it was a throwaway line but that entire moment sealed Charlie’s arc and journey.

    Agreed.
