    Marty Feldman should’ve been nominated for Young Frankenstein. In a film with a cast that strong, stealing the show isn’t easy, but his iconic, lovable, and pitch perfect comedic timing caused him to do just that. If it wasn’t for De Niro and the also horribly snubbed John Cazale, I’d have actually given Feldman the Oscar.

    Young Frankenstein in general deserved more than it was nominated for. It’s a shame that it came out in a strong year, and also had to compete against Blazing Saddles. I imagine it was hard for any voters who were Brooks fans to decide which of those two to support.

    Last I checked, hating on Green Book was not an unpopular opinion. Particularly on the internet.

    The unpopular opinion is to stand up for it. Which I will now do.

    [Stands up.] Green Book was good! [Sits back down.]

    Thank you.

    Also, I’d like definitions of vague phrases applied to Mad Max like “filmmaking achievement” and “cinematic experience.” I will allow that it is a “technical marvel” in that it has excellent stunts and somewhat over-the-top visual effects.

    Rewatching 1917 made me realise

    The Revenant would have been alot better if it had better background score and more focus to it’s screenplay.

    I think from a pure dialogue perspective Green Book’s screenplay is actually great. It had some of the biggest laughs of any film in 2018 (watching it in the theater was a ton of fun for that reason) as well as some genuine touching and sad moments. I also think the story is a lot better than many people give it credit for. Everyone here says that it’s a white savior movie because Tony protects Don, but in reality they actually both help each other grow and change throughout the film. If anything I think Tony changes more than Don.

    Where Green Book’s Screenplay felt amateurish to me was the story structure. The middle and end halves of the film get really repetitive when there’s so many different scenes of “something racist has to happen to Don, Tony stands up for him/defends him, and then they talk about how wrong it is later”. It just felt way too preachy at times, and I feel like there’s a lot of this film that could have been left on the cutting room floor. That’s why it’s nomination for Best Editing bothers me (but not as much as BoRap’s win).

    I feel like some people are inherently against feel-good movies winning Best Picture on principle. Just my speculation,

    Mad Max: Fury Road did not deserve the awards buzz it got. It was just another movie. This review encapsulates my opinion: https://www.sfgate.com/movies/article/Clever-touches-enliven-two-hour-Mad-Max-6263383.php

    Yes, yes, yes!! I love you for bringing that review to my attention! YES! I was so excited to watch MM:FR because I heard so many great things about and I love CT, but damn, I watched it and I was like: ‘Really? That’s it? That’s what everyone is going on about it?’ This review completely nailed it.

    YES!

    (I know with this unpopular opinion, I am differing greatly with a few people I normally agree quite a bit with, LOL!)

    Shallow is boring and a bad song, would have liked All the Stars to win but that was never happening unfortunately

    YES!!!! It is NOT a good song. The lyrics are terrible! Thank you! They are “shallow” indeed! I am living for these last few pages.

    As someone who disagrees strongly, I salute you. Go get ’em.

    I think Saoirse has never been the best in her category and should’ve been replaced for Juliette Binoche in let the sunshine in (made no noise at sundance) or Helena Howard, one of the best debuts and best performances that year. Her best performance imo is Brooklyn. Unfortunate her most competitive year.

    *Facepalm* swap Helena for Vicky Krieps. “I can do that, and I should be allowed to do that.”

    I never understood why people liked Phantom Thread that much.

    Christian Bale deserved his nomination for American Hustle.
