    After understanding the format of screenplay writing and learning more about film period, I truly believe that Alien (1979) is the greatest film ever. There are just so many things about that film that was done so incredibly well.

    I watched Aliens afterwards and I am disappointed at how much more praise Aliens receives over Alien.

    Alien almost felt like a documentary. The cast was perfectly chosen and they did not give too much “popcorn” compared to Aliens. Yes, Aliens was more of an action film, the writing was cheesy as hell. Weaver should have been nominated for both films. What a great chose for the Ripley.

    Alien is #1

    The Hateful Eight is the best Tarantino film so far.

    How To Train Your Dragon should have won Best Animated Picture and Best Original Score. Toy Story 3 was a good movie but wouldn’t have gotten so much awards love if we had known there would be a fourth.

    Seth Rogen DESERVED to be in contention for Supporting Actor for Steve Jobs, but literally NO AWARD CEREMONY nominated him. It makes me sad, he did awesome as Steve Wozniak!

    I am sorry for my past behaviour. I am sorry for being a turd. I would like to try and be better.

    Josh Brolin should’ve been nominated for Infinity War.

    The expectations for Thanos we’re through the roof, and somehow, he completely surpassed them. I don’t care if he played a cgi character in a comic book movie. His performance was tremendous and it definitely should’ve been recognized given the fairly open field of that year.

    When it comes to storytelling, Avengers Infinity War is the best Marvel movie period. It will be hard to top that.

    The Age of Innocence is a perfect film.

    One of Scorsese’s greatest films, it should be regarded in popular culture at the same level of his other early seminal masterworks Mean Streets, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, The King of Comedy, After Hours, Goodfellas, and Casino.

    Great Gerwig presenting Little Women in anachronistic order was an amateur mistake that added nothing to the story and detracted from the character arcs. The only time it worked was for the climax with Jo’s book getting published.

    I really wish there was a cut of the film that had it in the correct order.

    None of the Marvel movies have good storytelling.

    The Golden Globes should bring back New Star of the Year Male/Female.

    They could maybe have 3 nominees in both categories and include film and TV together.

    and the Academy needs to bring back the separate sound categories. There’s a reason A Quiet Place is an Oscar nominated film and Arrival an Oscar winning film

    Laga Gaga for Best Actress.

    House of Gucci for best picture.

    Belfast for everything - Best Picture win

    Greta Gerwig’s direction of Little Women was some of the best work of the decade and a lot of people didn’t understand what she was going for. One of the best portrayals of the chain reaction of memories ever presented on film. Her screenplay was also absolutely incredible and should’ve won the Adapted Screenplay Oscar.

    It was very easy to see where she was going with it, but it undercut the entire story. She only did it to make her version different from the others.

    Also the whole chain reaction of memories thing doesn’t work, since there’s no consistent viewpoint character, with there being several scenes that Jo is completely absent from, and therefore couldn’t remember.

    I didn’t think it undercut the story at all. She chose to make it a memory play instead of a straightforward story. I thought it was brilliant. She wanted to make a piece about looking back on childhood as an adult and used Little Women to tell it through.

    Little Women’s already a classic for a reason and there was no reason to completely change the pacing of the story, especially because the idea of looking back on childhood is already there within the original story. She didn’t bring out anything new by doing that, she just made it more obvious.

    The moment I knew I hated that gimmick was when we saw (spoilers for a story that’s more than 100 years old) Beth in a flashback immediately after her death sequence. While I believe that thankfully was the last time we saw her, the idea that we may have still seen her pop up a few more times greatly detracted from my connection to the characters’ feeling of loss. The sad thing about death is it’s finality, and having a character show up right after their death undeniably takes away from that feeling. Which is a shame because her death sequence is one of the best parts of the movie.
