    For what it’s worth, Judas just got an A CinemaScore.

    Since the awards for 2016 films the only film that missed Best Picture after getting in for the same category at AACTA was The King (which was an Australian film). I’m glad to see The Father officially become a lock in Best Picture as it more or less always has been in my predictions.

    FYC: All things The Crown, Hacks and I May Destroy You (and Hannah Waddingham and Julianne Nicholson whilst you're at it)!!

    Why is nobody talking about Judas? 😐

    Cause it’s meh. A screenplay that only sketches rather than paints and with the most annoyingly overlong postscript of the year (and with an end credits song that is totally wrong for the tone). Very average shot choices and frame composition and lighting and sense of flow. Fine performances, not earthshattering. But of course plenty of people will rave about what an important story it is.

    My theory on the lack of Judas hype is that it started screening too late. Usually when films screen late, it’s during the holiday season where people in the industry have time to watch their screeners. This year, late means end of January/February. And despite the Pandemic, Hollywood is still booming (I work in the industry and it’s really insane how busy it actually is…). People don’t have as much time to watch the films now as they would in December. maybe the HBOMAX release will build hype so those voter’s who haven’t seen it yet will make time.

    I don’t understand the hype either. Emotionally empty movie reduced to a cat and mouse game instead of focusing more on Fred Hampton’s ideals and what he and the Black Panthers were fighting for. The narrative is so messy and like someone else already pointed out the movie jumps erratically from one scene to another. You don’t really know too much about Stanfield’s character or how he gets so close to someone as important as the leader of the Black Panthers. I really thought I missed some important scene and had to go back and check because it made no sense. Great performances nevertheless especially from Kaluuya and Dominique Fishback.

    With 2000+ votes, Judas is rising to 7.9 on IMDb.

    I think its final rating will land at 7.7, which will make it the top 5 among major Oscars contenders this year, behind only Soul(8.1), Chicago7(7.8), and maybe Minari.

    Nomadland, Trial of the Chicago 7, Minari, and Promising Young Woman all getting Picture at AACTA further cements them as locks, with Mank definietly 5th. I also think Zhao, Fincher, Sorkin, and Fennell are 100% Top 4.

    So that means Soul isnt dead as this forum was proclaiming considering the director nom?

    I said that right after Sundance.

    I finally watched Steve McQueen’s Mangrove and it’s so baffling that it can’t compete at Oscars. TTOTC7 looks like a Disney movie compared to Mangrove.

    You can’t fault a film for not being about what you want.

    watch I May Destroy You

    You can fault a film for focusing on the wrong things, absolutely.
