    Oh and I know I’m double posting but god Small Axe is what I wanted from this Oscars year. Lovers Rock is the only film I’ve gotten a sense of compassion or intimacy from. Mangrove is just an incredibly made and structured piece. Red White and Blue is a hell of a character study. I could see all three being Best Picture nominees this year. Instead we get what feels like a funeral March for the motion picture.

    For Your Consideration:

    Best Picture: Wolfwalkers

    Best Animated Feature: Wolfwalkers

    Soul is fine but a pretty weak effort from Pixar. I don’t get the people who say that it deserves anything more than a best animated film nomination.

    Score deserves recognition. And weak effort? People can really use a simple word to deny somebody’s work of years. If Soul is Pixar’s weak effort, there’re not many great ones left. I don’t think it would get in BP, but it’s no doubt that Soul is among Pixar’s best(and most mature) in these years.

    My problem with Soul is that seems Pixar is obsessed with this “death” theme that it keeps shoving into its screenplays but in this one it’s quite juvenile for adults but then it doesn’t have the cute factor for younger viewers either (unlike Inside Out). I think it would have been quite the underperformer in cinemas had it not been for the pandemic.

    Whether I watch on theater, on laptop, on my phone, if it’s a movie that hits me, it will hit hard.
    I’m also the minority, I found most of this year’s contenders to be great, I watched Nomadland on my phone and I was hit and still thinking about it till this day.

    Totally agree, thank you for saying it that way.

    As i said a few weeks ago, Pixar (and any animated studio) does not and should not need to release the best film of all time to receive the recognition of Best Picture, specially when they have released their best plenty of times and it has not been nominated.

    In a year like this i support a Soul nomination.

    Does anyone know if Joe Bell is still coming out this Oscar season?? Its still listed as being released in February but I haven’t heard anything about it. Has anyone seen the new edit? … I know it didn’t get the best reviews last Fall for the original cut, but they said they had planned an awards campaign. Have screeners gone out to voters??

    It’s probably not going to be very good, but does feature an Academy Award nominated actor, Oscar winning writers and a Diane Warren penned song.

    Can we just acknowledge that the argument that “Soul isn’t as good as other Pixar films” implies that a movie needs to be as good as Citizen Kane and The Godfather in order to get recognition?

    The Shape of Water and The Departed are hardly the most beloved Del Toro and Scorsese films. But somehow there was more excitement for them to win Best Picture.

    In virtually NO OTHER CATEGORY do we say “it’s not [potential nominee]’s best work of all time, so we just should not reward it.”

    News of the World has sunk to 6.9 on IMDb from 9K votes, but please keep telling me how this is an audience hit that will get the dad vote that carried Ford v Ferrari (8.1 from 289K votes).

    It’s not coming this season anymore. The studio removed it from its February date.

    The IMDb scores for all movies this year are extremely yikes. I mean, most of these movies can’t even crack 20k…

    So since their release on VOD here are how the IMDB scores and ratings have changed for <i>One Night in Miami</i>, <i>News of the World </i>and Promising Young Woman (all of which were released on the same day):

    – News of the World: 6.9 (-0.3), 9k votes (+7k)

    – One Night in Miami: 7.3 (+0.2), 7.6k votes (+7.5k)

    – Promising Young Woman: 7.5 (+0.1), 18k votes (+9k)

    The IMDb scores for all movies this year are extremely yikes. I mean, most of these movies can’t even crack 20k…

    So far only the following have (release dates in bold):

    Tenet – 276k (26th August)
    Soul – 148k (25th December)
    The Trial of the Chicago 7 – 87k (16th October)
    I’m Thinking of Ending Things – 59k (4th September)
    Da 5 Bloods – 38k (12th June)
    Mank – 34k (4th December)
    Sound of Metal – 24k (4th December)
    Hillbilly Elegy – 22k (24th November)

    Those approaching that mark:

    The Prom – 19k (11th December)
    Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom – 19k (18th December)
    Promising Young Woman – 18k (15th January/25th December)
    Pieces of a Woman – 18k (7th January)

    I haven’t included On the Rocks which has been stuck at 19k since like November.
