The Academy is going to fall asleep from this within the first hour just like I almost did and my friends that I watched with did. Kate serves the contender that makes it in a couple of precursors and is “snubbed” on nomination morning. Other than that, I think the atrocious costume design might get a nod for the annual period dress nom but that’s it. Francis really dropped the ball on this one.December 5, 2020 at 9:42 am #1203896080
BAFTA doesn’t love Viola Davis. Davis was nominated for Widows, because the film was British and was directed by Steve McQueen.
And BAFTA LOVES Winslet.
Same reason why the mediocre 1917 swept at the BAFTAs.
British people love to reward British people.December 5, 2020 at 9:46 am #1203896098

Wow calling 1917 mediocre…..
Don’t act like you’re a movie genius and abuse the word “mediocre”.
Sorry, I meant bullshit videogame-like gimmicky of the moment backed by a silly screenplay.
Completely hollow, all style and no substance, too enamored of its own technique.
Flashy stuff, just a logistical feat with no staying power.
Great cinematography in search of an actual movie that doesn’t hold up over time unlike other actually layered, substantial, and rewatchable masterworks/modern classics of that same year that we’ll still talk about ten years from now. (Parasite, Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, The Irishman, Little Women, Uncut Gems, Marriage Story, The Lighthouse, etc.)December 5, 2020 at 10:27 am #1203896259

Ok,I just found out you’re just a big 1917 hater through your profile. Still can’t get over a film after a year of its release? Bless you.

I wouldn’t call it terrible, more like nothing special, really.
Winslet had both better and worse performances, it’s acceptable from her but Ronan is dreadful.December 5, 2020 at 4:53 pm #1203897034
I saw this today and this is my review of the film:
It basically looks like Carol but with palaeontology which is a notion I’m quite excited by. I think its safe to say unless this flops that both Kate and Saoirse will get nominated. I think Fiona Shaw basically has the same level of a role as Sarah Paulson in Carol.

It was quite good honestly. Maybe because I love period movie, but I wasn’t bore at all. Kate Winslet was outstanding really.December 5, 2020 at 5:11 pm #1203897094
Sad lesbians by the sea fuck around and piss on rocks for Oscars.

The sound editing was terrible. Did they just mess up the post production during the lockdown.
Also that bit in the trailer where Winslet fell made me laugh even more in the trailer. It was so badly edited.
At best this is coming for a Mary Queen of Scots style run imo and Winslet does a Robbie (except I think she’ll get into the Globes and not SAG which is the opposite of what Robbie did).
