    *Drops Dune to #10 and removes Denis Villeneuve from Director lineup after watching the film*

    Better put both back up because that move will not pay off at all.

    - Best Picture
    - Best Director

    IF you want to see DUNE this weekend, I urge you to see it in a theatre because its visual and auditive awe deploy full power in that situation. And, yes, I loved it and admire it.

    From Del Toro.

    Villeneuve has received Zhao, Cuaron, and Del Toro’s blessings. Don’t see how Villeneuve will miss directing if the directing branch (Oscar winning directors I may add) has been so supportive of Dune publicly.

    * PTA movies aren’t “oscar bait”

    Yeah, I get the sense people have been getting entirely the wrong impression about Licorice Pizza. It’s probably going to be weirder and darker than the trailer lets on.

    Yes, a part of me wonders if Villeneuve could really just go all the way? Villeneuve has a LOT of industry support it seems, which isn’t to say the frontrunner Campion doesn’t, but I wonder if he could overtake her in passion?  It’s too early to say of course, I’m just curious.

    So I watched Dune! I liked it. It was good, which is hard for the material! I don’t think it was at all EXCELLENT or a MASTERPIECE or anything, but it was pretty good—I will 100% go watch Part 2 if it gets made which I hope it does because…yeah I wanna watch it. That said, Villeneuve sure put a lot of pressure for him to knock it out of the park with Part 2 because it really does feel a little deflated and also because the whole pacing of this, where the story stops…it’s a little curious, but whatever, big deal.

    Everything that everyone’s predicting it for: BP, techs…yep, makes sense. Score—I don’t see what’s so great about this score. It’s pretty darn generic compared to the incredible work done in Production Design & Visual Effects. Yeah, I honestly don’t even remember it, it was generic-haunting-chamber-music to the best of my recollection. I don’t necessarily see WHY Villeneuve should get BD for this over stiff competition… I’ve definitely seen at least 5 films I think are much bigger directorial accomplishments, and I have yet to see so many. Cinematography was very good but here I’ll also applaud overall restraint: it’s not showy, and it’s nod-worthy, but it’s hardly some UNDISPUTED WINNER for me. Ari Wegner deserves this a lot more.

    OK quibbles I gotta say……..

    Timothee better level up for Part 2 because that was…just like the bare minimum—and yes I know his character is an empty vessel even in the book but STILL. Zendaya was treated like Manic Pixie Dune Girl, the repetition of images was WAY TOO MUCH, wtf is up with the casting of Javier Bardem and LITERALLY Rebecca Ferguson carries the emotion of this film on her back almost single-handedly. She’s awesome, but she’s possibly made more awesome by the fact that I honestly don’t quite the casting worked here for many of the roles (even Oscar Isaac. And I LOVE him. But I couldn’t help but giggle at certain…delivery, and that’s not ideal).

    Regardless—liked it, comfortably sitting in my BP predix, not sitting in my BD predix, and also Jonny Greenwood should win, this should 100% not even be in question.

    You know it will girl. We will see what numbers Dune brings in this weekend, but overall WB/HBO releases have been DOA since King Kong vs. Godzilla. I highly doubt Will Smith’s name alone is going to bring this to a smash. People call this crowd pleasing like it’s some damn Disney movie for the whole family.

    Also: how bad can Last Night in SoHo possibly be? I’m still so darn excited to see it, and will. I don’t really get the whole response to this film tbh. With Dune, it’s clear critics liked it enough and audiences loved it enough for it to happen, and most of the quibbles make sense to me. I get why it wasn’t met with universal critical praise for sure!

    With SoHo, I’m still a little baffled. So it goes a little nuts? Isn’t…that what a film marketed like this is supposed to do :/

    Its not bad at all, just suffers from a mediocre screenplay and a very underwhelming final act. It’s far from bad, the first hour and change is a fever dream with a movie star in the making performance by ATJ and nothing short of a blast.

    I actually quite liked it. The last 10/15 minutes are a bit disappointing and its ending isn’t very original but it’s still a great enjoyable film with excellent performances from ATJ and Rigg (McKenzie was great too although I wouldn’t nominate her) and sensational direction from Edgar Wright.

    If the film had a better final act it probably would have been better received and would have been a classic but I’d still give it 8/10 tbh.

    This is how I feel,  but just give it a 7/10. I feel the same way, but did not enjoy the last 30 minutes or so.  But we both agree on ATJ. Her fans have to show up for this. They will not be disappointed.

    Would absolutely love it if Julia Ducornau got a Director nomination for Titane. With all the international directors getting acclaim and nominations, she should easily get one. It would be one of the most deserved nominations the Academy’s ever given.

    We know there WILL be at least one European director in the line up. As always.

    Branagh, Almodovar, Trier, Sorrentino, Ducournau. One of these will be nominated.

    I also can see the branch getting behind Larrain like they did with PTA with Phantom Thread. Spencer is essentially a british film. Larrain would be the first south american director since Fernando Meirelles, so I’m rooting for him.

    PTA is one of my favourite directors. Phantom Thread was baity but his other films have not been. I’ve never understood the overconfidence in Licorice pizza since before it was seen, but I reckon it’s going to be weird in a punch drunk love kind of way.

    Just saw Dune. The film itself was visually beautiful, sound mixing and soundtrack were great, casting was great (Rebecca and Oscar were excellent and I was surprised by how much I enjoyed Jason Momoa as Duncan), but the writing wasn’t there for the cast to really develop their characters. Also had pacing issues. Second half of the film felt entirely too slow and anticlimactic given the events around the midpoint of the film. It deserves technical noms, but that’s about it.
