    I hope this movie is released on streaming. That way I could actually watch it here. 😬

    It will probably be on Disney+ in a couple of months (all Searchlight and 20th Century films seem to be turning up on there 45 days after their theatrical releases).

    Well, they probably will. But the thing is that most Oscar movies don’t need the box office because: 1) they have low budgets. 2) they are carried by their industry buzz and acclaim.

    Big-budgeted films are normally only embraced by the Academy when they are huge commercial/cultural hits.

    We need Gucci to save the day and the Oscars. If y’all want this award to survive, y’all better pray for Gaga and company.

    She is getting universal acclaim in every single review, whether it be a positive or negative review of the movie as a whole. She will be completely fine.

    why would a movie that didn’t bomb because it was bad **** up anyone’s career? It got good reviews. Comer was raved. Scott was praised for return to form. Cast and crew did their best. If anyone’s to blame it’s CEOs who greenlit it knowning it was a tough sell, and then dumped it in the franchise-stacked month with poor marketing.

    We need Gucci to save the day and the Oscars. If y’all want this award to survive, y’all better pray for Gaga and company.

    Driver should pray more than anyone. He could get away with TLD bombing because Damon and Affleck were draws so it wasn’t  on him. But every actor needs a hit and he needs a hit to offset one-two punch of Annette and TLD. And upcoming 65 that is rumored to have tested poorly and the studio is now trying to reshoot almost the whole thing.

    Star Wars actors have no traction outside of some corners of the Internet. Driver, Isaac, Boyega, Ridley can’t open a door let alone a movie or a TV show. So to stay relevant, it’s either endless franchising or hoping that Gaga power will put butts in seats.

    I really hope this doesn’t f*uck up Comer’s career.

    Why would it? It’s not being sold on her name.

    To me the biggest shocker was that Disney never backed down from October wide release knowing damn well, that that month will be blockbusters bloodbath. What’s even more bizzare is that they went with wide release instead of limited on the first weekend (that was their original plan). But I don’t know…maybe 45-days window was the reason?

    Overall, puzzling strategy.

    The movie was always a hard sell. No one realistically expected “happy-box office-ending” for it, but those low numbers are still shocking.

    Still, the turn around in reviewes and public response to TLD is amazing and really great to see.

    I think they basically didn’t think it had any chance of success (which is almost certainly true; movies like this generally don’t get made anymore for a reason), and just wanted it over and done with.

    It annoys me so much about the current theatrical environment, because if you had broken this up into a three-episode miniseries and put it on Netflix it would probably have been a big success.

    Wasn’t Free Guy a commercial success?

    The important thing is that the reviews are very positive. Many people expected the film to be bad and get awful reviews

    One more thing: I don’t think enough people realize how much of a miracle it is that an old school movie like The Last Duel exists, especially with a heavy subject matter.

    It seems it is mediocre.

    Why do we need old school movies? The heavy subject matter badly treated, apparently.

    To put it differently, The Last Duel is oblivious cinema getting an unwonted pass from critics; mediocre direction applied to mere entertainments is just dull, but applied to a serious subject, it reveals its ethical and political hollowness.

    I agree w/ Brody. Ridley could have made his point much stronger had he NOT shown the rape at all & just asked the audience to believe Jodie Comer. Anyway, this is a well-argued review. Though TLD is not without its merits, I’m surprised how many are lining up to praise this one.

    Agreed. The direction in The Last Duel was so uninspired and some of the shots were legitimately ugly. The script only provided the audience with hollow characters and while the film didn’t feel too long there really is no reason for why this type of film is 2 hours and 30 minutes. Too self-indulgent at times.

    It seems it is mediocre.

    86% on RT would disagree.

    Why do we need old school movies?

    Because “old school movies” in this context means large budgets being given for anything other than superheroes.

    The heavy subject matter badly treated, apparently.

    Most would disagree.
