    Cries & Whispers is one of my least favorite Bergman films, so far.

    An idea for Academy voting I have is to have each and every branch vote for a single category, and then have the winner be who got the biggest tally from the 23 ballots.

    For some reason quoting crashes this thread so I wanted to address #1203393343 post regarding Babel: what should have been in its place, especially because it wasn’t such a strong top five anyway…

    Meryl’s work in The Iron Lady is in her top three.

    I see your opinion of The Iron Lady, and I raise you it being Streep’s best performance.

    Also, Solo is by far the best Star Wars movie.

    For me, it wasn’t that good overall but the use of red and Harriett Andersson’s masterclass performance stayed with me.

    Dreamgirls sucked. One of the biggest wastes of potential I’ve ever seen. Such a strong cast and big budget only for it to be nothing more than a gaudy, vapid, average musical. It wasn’t bad and definitely eye candy but damn, what a disappointment. I understand why it was snubbed

    I was so excited to see them spending so much money on a black movie. They really messed it up

    Liv Ullmann stole the film for me.

    The Dark Knight isn’t much better than Joker.

    Strong cast is a bit of a stretch lol.

    Strong cast is a bit of a stretch lol.

    Not necessarily great actors but big names nevertheless. Eddie Murphy already had more than 20 years of career at that point, Danny Glover almost 30, Jamie Foxx had just won an Oscar and Beyoncé was top 3 biggest popstars of the 2000’s. The cast definitely was impressive on paper. And spending $80M on a black cast was unprecedented at the time (this hasn’t really changed actually)

    But the whole movie was underwhelming

    This whole world is at Jordan Peele’s feet when he has an incredible amount to learn about the profession. The mistake is the same in both of his popular films (Get Out, Us) – a very good first segment and exciting atmosphere-creating but poor finale with little (or dull) explanation. In addition, the idea of Get Out was not entirely his own, as we saw a similar plot in another horror movie entitled The Skeleton Key (2005) before.

    The idea that he is called as some kind of a horror genius, while the real horror geniuses (such as Robert Eggers – The Lighthouse, The Witch) don’t get credit, is sad.

    While critics are paid off or obligated to support the director, the audience begins to notice Peele’s inexperience. Us does not even reach 60% on Rotten Tomatoes. Peele is promising, but people have to stop praising him up to heaven.

    The Talented Mr. Ripley is a great movie, the cast is amazing and has Matt Damon at his finest BUT the ending ruins the whole mood of the movie.

    I saw it as a teenager, it was super boring and didn’t make any sense. Also, I found Ripley as a primitive ordinary gay person without any talents.

    Crash was the 2nd best movie of 2005, but Brokeback Mountain wasn’t first. In fact, out of the 5 BP nominees, I’d rank them: 1. Good Night, and Good Luck 2. Crash 3. Munich 4. Capote 5. Brokeback Mountain

    Totally agree. Good Night, and Good Luck-is a masterpiece. I just adored the dialogue in this movie and I didn’t really know who Edward Murrow was before I watched it, so I’m glad I could be introduced to him this way. And the fact this movie has none oscars, even for best writing, is a crime.
