I watched Crazy Rich Asians again. I relaxed and took it in, as I was a tad disappointed before.
Michelle Yeoh is a goddess.
“Nick Young’s” bf (Colin Khoo) is a better actor.
The iconic Lisa Lu.
Seeing Awkwafina boosts my hopes for her potential Oscar nom.
I still laughed at that outfit Rachel Chu chose to wear to that spectacular wedding.
Had a great time rewatching it.
No grade. Can’t.

Watch An Education and you’ll see why she didn’t.
It’s been a while since I’ve seen The Blind Side, but I remember Sandra Bullock giving a great performance in that. In fact, here’s how I’d rank the three Best Actress nominees from 2009 that I’ve seen…
1. Sandra Bullock
2. Gabourey Sidibe
3. Carey MulliganOctober 30, 2019 at 10:09 pm #1203159968
Parasite… and it’s a masterpiece as everyone is saying…October 30, 2019 at 10:22 pm #1203159974This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.October 30, 2019 at 10:27 pm #1203159978
I’m actually pretty surprised by how much I’m liking films this season as opposed to last year. I already think that Parasite, Luce, The Lighthouse, and Portrait of a Lady on Fire were damn near perfect films, and it looks like there’s a few more coming out soon that could fit that bill as well.
Last year was definitely a weak year in film. The fact the biggest awards contenders were Bohemian Rhapsody, Green Book and A Star Is Born.. So glad that was over.October 31, 2019 at 8:36 am #1203160497
“Judy” (2019): I’d say that the major takeaways here are “welcome back, Renée!” for a breathtaking lead performance as Judy Garland, and that the film itself is a threadbare support of that showcase role. I know that was never the goal of anyone involved to make a BP contender, but still. It’s a surprisingly in-depth take on the imagined last days of Judy Garland’s fragile and tragic life. I thought that Renée stepped up to the plate in every possible way: the hair, costumes, makeup, choreography, voice, body mannerisms, and yes, even the singing too. I didn’t think that the flashbacks were necessary. Felt like shoehorned #MeTooRealness thrown in there for effect, when Garland by most accounts thought of Mayer as a second father (but I know, both realities very well could have been true; the real story was Judy’s wretched mother, which is given no screeentime). I could tell that a novice director was at the helm, and at times, I wanted more from the supporting cast. Two immediate standouts were Jessie Buckley and Finn Wittrock. Not quite enough to nominate for either, but at least they enlivened the film when necessary. Highly recommended viewing regardless for Renée’s comeback role!October 31, 2019 at 7:05 pm #1203161243

Bullock in The Blind Side doesn’t hold a candle to Mulligan in An Education. They’re not even in the same league.October 31, 2019 at 7:10 pm #1203161245
My favorite Bullock film remains Love Potion # 9.

I thought Carey Mulligan was great in An Education, but I’m not sure if her character on paper felt worthy of an Oscar win. Though definitely nomination worthy. I’m glad she at least managed to win the BAFTA.November 1, 2019 at 6:06 pm #1203162369
I just watched the Peanut Butter Falcon and I really enjoyed it.
A couple days ago, I watched the Farewell and it was pretty good.November 1, 2019 at 6:15 pm #1203162373
I just saw Midsommar and for me, it was not as good as Hereditary.November 2, 2019 at 6:20 pm #1203163493
I just watched Beanpole. It was heavy, intense and depressing. However, I really liked it. I think, it really has a high chance to be in the shortlist for Oscar’s International Movie category.Not now
