    For those who brought LB: PoTD and Lost Daughter early LB reviews are mixed too. ps: Dont trust LB

    Exactly. I remember TPOTD getting wildly mixed reviews. LB is highly unreliable and filled with people who post lame reactions. But I do think NA is going to end up in the 80s range in RT and early 70s in mc. Doesn’t seem like a five starrer and is more of an artistic achievement.

    I like the Film Drunk as a reviewer, and this more or less summarizes the reactions I’ve seen:

    Absolutely! I panicked so bad when I read some of the early TPOTD reviews. Don’t listen to LB

    Just saw Nightmare Alley here at TIFF, and it was fine. No better or worse than Crimson Peak, and if it wasnt release during award season or following up Shape of Water, I would never think of it as an contender other than the production design. The actors are all fine, but nothing special or that they haven’t done before (Blanchett performance is surprisingly predicable and Mara is sleepwalking). As for Cooper, he has some good scenes in the third act, but no best actor contender

    Do you think it is win competitive for production design?

    people still don’t realize that a big-budget comedy and understated indie dramas are marketed in different ways, huh

    It doesn’t feel like Netflix is treating TPOTD like a potential winner, though. We could chalk this up to incompetence, but the last time they thought they had a winner (Roma), by god they treated it as such.

    In other news, it seems we found our Production Design winner at least.

    Now that NA has been seen, all that’s left to do is sit and watch to see which films/performances bubble to the top.

    As for late breakers, the actual reviews sure will be interesting. I’ve seen reactions that ‘shout’ support for this movie or that performance, but when the said pundit updates their predictions they do not seem to follow with their earlier hyperbolic reactions.

    Why are you reporting this post? (optional):
