Wow. Those reviews are rough. It seems like it’s not Close’s time yet.

Likewise. Fingers crossed on that Sunset Boulevard musical film that they’ve been developing for a long time.
I heard the script is ready and Glenn apparently liked it a lot. I hope Paramount gives the final green light for it to start production soon. And please, lets get some big names attached to the roles.November 10, 2020 at 11:50 am #1203827398
The sad thing with Sunset is that Amy Adams and her generation are closer to the correct age to play Norma Desmond than Glenn Close is now. I’m not saying Adams should play it or anything.November 10, 2020 at 11:52 am #1203827401

They will use tons of makeup on Glenn to make her look younger. Or they could always use a bit of CGI like they did with Meryl in Into the Woods.November 10, 2020 at 11:53 am #1203827410
I think that if this film wasn’t on a streaming service and if there was no pandemic impacting movie theaters then the box office haul this inevitably would’ve reaped could’ve helped it’s award chances. Alas too many if statements. You know the film still will resonate with many people and be a popular watch over Thanksgiving, but there won’t be any hard metrics to support.
Honestly, with those reviews, I don’t think any amount of audience support or box office could save this film.

After this, no one will dare to make a sympathetic movie about Republicans. The woke critics have truly lost it completely.
Why sympathize with fascist policy? LolNovember 10, 2020 at 12:06 pm #1203827456
Why sympathize with fascist policy? Lol
The irony that the user keeps going around accusing people mentioning someone’s name of being ‘colonialists’ but seems to be like a Trump supporter lmao.
Mind you Trump supporters aren’t very smart.

I’m still in shock about the reviews of the film as a whole. Like, JESUS CHRIST.

At best it’s too safe and at worst it’s laughably bad. It will probably get a lot of backlash, but that didn’t stop Green Book. I don’t think Glenn can win for something so critically trashed, right? It would make sense to ignore the movie altogether
Green Book got mostly positive reviews, though.November 10, 2020 at 12:28 pm #1203827512
I knew this would flop and that’s why Close was my only prediction for the movie. But 21% on RT?? OMG!November 10, 2020 at 12:42 pm #1203827537
At least we know that the problem is Ron Howard and not these amazing actresses. I hope that this will teach them a lesson. Amy is too talented for this fake melodrama
