Who had the best trifecta of films among these three??
Vote and comment.January 31, 2021 at 8:37 am #1204010780
Villeneuve is Overrated in my opinion. I voted Scorsese because I really love The Wolf of Wall Street and SilenceJanuary 31, 2021 at 8:48 am #1204010792
Went with Paul Thomas Anderson cause Phantom Thread is one of my all time favourites and I absolutely love The Master as well. Love Scorcese but, apart from Silence, I think he has far better movies than the other two. Villeneuve is also in a very good path to have a phenomenal career. Blade Runner 2049 and Arrival are masterpieces imo. Haven’t seen Sicario though.January 31, 2021 at 8:54 am #1204010800
Villeneuve is the only one out of these three without a weak link (Scorsese has Silence, PTA hat Inherent Vice). Also, Arrival is the best out of all of these. So it’s him.
Lead Actor: Mads Mikkelsen (Another Round)
Supporting Actress: Maria Bakalova (Borat Subsequent Moviefilm)
Supporting Actor: Paul Raci (Sound of Metal)

The Wolf of Wall Street
Blade Runner 2049
I prefer Scorsese’s trinity over PTA’s as I’m not a big fan of The Master. Both are miles above Villeneuve.January 31, 2021 at 9:40 am #1204010879
Ranked: Phantom Thread The Irishman Silence Inherent Vice The Wolf of Wall Street The Master Arrival Blade Runner 2049 Sicario I prefer Scorsese’s trinity over PTA’s as I’m not a big fan of The Master. Both are miles above Villeneuve.
I need to see The Irishman again. I hated it the only time I saw it. The Awful CGI was too bad in several scenes and that killed my personal viewingJanuary 31, 2021 at 1:16 pm #1204011178
The Wolf of Wall Street, Silence and The Irishman are all late career masterpieces one radically different from the other for genre, setting, tone and style. The fact that he made them all at over 70 years old is even more mindblowing.
PTA has a stink with Inherent Vice and Villeneuve has Arrival and maybe Blade Runner 2049 but Sicario can’t compete with the other three Scorsese films.January 31, 2021 at 1:35 pm #1204011189
The Wolf of Wall Street
Overall: Paul Thomas Anderson
I’d rank Scorcese last, but I acknowledge that my less enthusiastic opinion of The Wolf of Wall Street is in the minority, and I think Sicario is one of the best films of its type of the century (though it could’ve been even better).
For Your Consideration:
Best International Feature: Instinct (The Netherlands)
Best Actress: Carice van Houten (Instinct)January 31, 2021 at 1:38 pm #1204011194
PTA all the way.January 31, 2021 at 2:10 pm #1204011206
I did this poll on other film forums and the winner was always Scorsese.
Only here on Goldderby people really think that Villeneuve and PTA had better trifectas (Seriously, even PTA despite Inherent Vice’s existence???)January 31, 2021 at 3:37 pm #1204011278
I went for PTA since The Master is my favorite film by him plus I really loved Phantom Thread. Those two alone propel him to win along with the good Inherit Vice.

Goldderby has younger people than other film forums. That’s the reasonJanuary 31, 2021 at 3:57 pm #1204011294
I am not a fan of PTA. I think his movies are not that good. The Wolf of Wall Street is great!
Arrival, Sicario and Blade Runner 2049 is such a great trifecta!January 31, 2021 at 7:03 pm #1204011490

You have to rewatch it, it’s an elegiac late career crime masterpiece that gets better on multiple viewings and still holds up after one year (unlike gimmicky forgotten stuff of the moment like Jojo Rabbit and 1917).
The de-aging effects are great considering they were aiming to reproduce a younger version of Frank Sheeran instead of DeNiro in the Taxi Driver days (as explained in The Film Stage interview by the VFX supervisor) and it absolutely works in the contest of this film basically being a memory from an old man in a wheelchair. It’s radically different from any crime epic he’s ever done. It’s phenomenal, you have to rewatch it.
