    I know that people are confident in Dune right now, but I keep seeing people saying that the movie is emotionless. This could be a hurdle with the Academy, especially the acting and writers branches.

    Black Panther wasn’t good, i felt so disappointed with this movie. T’chala deserved a better movie, specially after how good he was in civil war.

    The movie is not winning in acting categories, however it could win multiple Oscars in special effects, score, sound and Production Design.

    It has too many disadvantages though: has to introduce a whole new world of characters and TYPES of celestial beings, be GRAND, and then meet the bizarre expectations Kevin Feige set out which did way more harm than good. I’d rather Zhao have done a more specific character-focused MCU film. 

    Both Dune and Eternals have ensemble cast, the difference is (imo!) Dune didn’t try to highlight every character. It’s a gamble from Denis’ side but it works. He has the confidence that Dune part II will be greenlighted by the studio so he focuses on world building and other technical stuff. I understand that the exposition can get boring, but otherwise it gets most moviegoers excited throughout the film. I haven’t seen eternals but from what I’ve read they tried to give everyone some backstories  and a few of them failed so the script is a bit of mess and the villain is your typical MCU villain.

     

    Ps: sorry if I didn’t make any sense, English is my 3rd language and I haven’t gotten my caffeine quota for this morning

    Pps: Timothy is outacted by every actor he shares the scene with. Especially Rebecca Ferguson. Especially her. She carries the whole movie. The best part easily.

    I found it fascinating that LA Times review on Eternals is positive (70) on Metacritic but its Rotten on RT.

    I’m one of the admins of one of marvel update accounts and marvel stans who shit on Dune are just the ones who got screenshot from early Dune screening on letterboxd. so maybe just a few of them.

    Most of them, at least in my circle (and their friends), love it. Even overpraised it imo. In my observation they like directors like Denis, Nolan, Edgar Wright, and Ryan Johnson. Also they’re stans. Most of them are 14 yo. They’re bound to be the loudest in the room.

    Highlighting the risk in overrelying on the MC and RT for any sort of precise reading of critical consensus in many cases where it’s not simply a whole bunch of clear-cut yeas or nays.

    I read throughout the whole review and can confirm that Dustin Chang said that its a very mixed bag but nothing about it is downright awful. Sort of “Ms Zhao, I know you could done better than this” fashion. Some praise for the cast but the worldbuilding is a cons point.

    I know, mature marvel fans watch other movies and wouldnt shit on any filmmakers simply because they don’t like marvel movies.

    I posted it before all the Eternals stuff hit this board but:

    Back of the envelope calculations: roughly 19% of overall AMPAS is POC. Acting branch is much more diverse. We can’t be naive and think this will not have a huge effect on BP. Barring King Richard there aren’t many POC contenders, and no edgy/indie POC contender except for Passing.

    Sooooo…….. what is it? So far we’ve been subject to almost all-white pundits’ speculation. What are we not seeing?

    Can ‘Being the Ricardos,’ ‘Nightmare Alley’ and Other Late Releases Still Make an Oscar Impact?

    Excerpts below, though there’s not a lot of interesting detail. It does seem the “Bradley Cooper’s Licorice Pizza role is small” line is one being focused on recently as a way to pre-emptively cut off supporting-actor nomination talk (Vanity Fair’s pundits made a similar observation).

    [Nightmare Alley] likely won’t be seen until sometime around Thanksgiving, which puts it against the deadlines of Oscars precursors like the National Board of Review and the New York Film Critics Circle.

    Many are hyped for [Bradley Cooper‘s] outing with writer-director Paul Thomas Anderson on Licorice Pizza. But Cooper’s role in that film is said to be a small one. All eyes are expected be on singer Alana Haim and newcomer Cooper Hoffman, the son of the late Oscar winner Philip Seymour Hoffman.

    Mum is the word on two-time best director winner Steven Spielberg’s remake of West Side Story, leading to questions regarding its quality or whether they are trying to create distance between this film and the financial disappointment of the other Latino musical of the year, In the Heights. There’s also the controversy surrounding star Ansel Elgort, who has been accused of sexually assaulting a 17-year-old girl, which he’s denied.

    There is Mexican-American actor Clifton Collins Jr., though as a stan of Jockey maybe i’m not the most impartial person to point that out. 😉
