I saw it at lightbox too! I’d say 70mm cuz the audio felt a little weird in atmos, at first I thought some of the quieter conversations were people in the back talking
hmmm, you seem to be complaining about what everyone else is raving about. Pretty sure that’s kinda the point of Dolby Atmos tbh. I think that’s what I’ll go with.
Anyway, now I’m worried about seating cuz It’s not letting me view the seat map and I’ve never actually been before so I don’t know what it looks like.
Whoop diddy scoop!December 14, 2018 at 8:46 pm #1202701781
That was an issue for me too. It was distracting.December 14, 2018 at 9:45 pm #1202701798

lots of people who went to that screening had similar complaints, so it was probably a problem with the volume at that specific screening, lightbox is mostly general admission so just arrive there earlyDecember 14, 2018 at 10:08 pm #1202701812
It was indeed beautiful.
Though it’ll propably never understand the level of praise Aparicio is getting for that role.December 14, 2018 at 10:32 pm #1202701821
It looks like an absolutely beautiful film, but it’s rated R for graphic nudity. That’s not my thing. Does anyone know if there will be a censored version of the film that will come out at all?
It’s a Penis … not that exciting

Given that damn near EVERYONE is in agreement that this film is an undeniable masterpiece, all I have are two questions for the general forum:
1. Could this be the defining Best Picture winner (if it wins) or nominee of the century?
2. Is there a chance of any kind of backlash? My instincts are telling me hell no. There’s nothing “wrong” with it, so to say.December 15, 2018 at 5:22 am #1202701951
It’s problem is that it is in Spanish and there is an English language bias sadly. It would be unprecedented but I absolutely see a path for it’s winning BP at the Oscars. I am not saying it definitely will but that it has a very high probability of doing so. I really do think it is now a two way race with A Star is Born. I know others are still touting Green Book, The Favourite and BlacKKKlansman, and they are all very strong, but I honestly think the preferential ballot will favor Roma, in a similar fashion to Moonlight (albeit not exactly the same – there was a backlash towards La La Land due in part to its excessive number of nominations in the minds of many academy members – ASIB won’t have that happen).
For me the real question is: how many Oscars will Alfonso Cuaron take home? Roma is in first place in 4 categories (Director, Foreign Language Film, Cinematography and Film Editing) on Gold Derby and 2nd place in 2 categories (Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay), and in the top five in one additional category (Production Design). (Perhaps also Best Sound Mixing? I would have to look it up).
I think it is by far the best picture of the year. We all know that the Oscars often give their prizes to films that aren’t the best picture. Since it will win Best Foreign Language Film there may be voters who will feel it will be rewarded there.
I still am predicting it will win, but it isn’t a slam dunk and it’s possible the good but not great A Star Is Born will wind up winning the Oscar for BP.December 15, 2018 at 7:28 am #1202701982
Watched it last night…..this is a game changer. Best Director could go to Alfonso and I think Best Actress could happen too. But for sure Best Foreign Film and maybe a nod for Best Picture.December 15, 2018 at 8:53 am #1202702021

Cuaron really screwed up by doing the cinematography himself (and I think he did the editing too) because we know he’s not gonna wind up with 4 Oscars that night: Best Picture, Director, Cinematography and Film Editing. In fact, if the film wins for Best Foreign Language film, I believe that Cuaron (rather than the producers) would be the recipient of that Oscar since he directed the film. So, it’s very unlikely that he’s going to win FIVE Oscars in that one night. Unfortunately, the Academy is probably gonna choose to “spread the wealth” to other films instead of letting Roma win all those categories. He’s likely to win just 2 Oscars: for cinematography and for foreign language film. I read somewhere that no director has ever won for directing a foreign language film, so it’s unlikely that he’ll win that.December 15, 2018 at 9:57 am #1202702042
Everbody praising yalitza but what about some love for Marina de Tavira. She was amazing as the mom form her mental break down to finally finding peace. Now that’s a supporting actress nom i can supportDecember 15, 2018 at 10:13 am #1202702057
(PLEASE do not read further if you haven’t seen the movie – I think it’s important to not know what happens to really appreciate this beautiful movie).
I just watched “ROMA” on Netflix.
It was hard enough to watch the scene when Cleo was in the delivery room, but the scene at the beach in the water was so powerful that I was tense the whole time.
And when they are all hugging each other on the beach with the sun peaking through and the quietness of the ride home.
This is why I love movies. I need to watch ROMA again – so much to take in.

There’s nothing “wrong” with it, so to say.
You mean, beside the film’s gross take on class and Cuarón’s gaze resulting in a sad idealization of a domestic worker’s life, right?
But let’s ignore that because the cinematography is so good.
