    Just watched En Affære (An Affair). It has kind of a similar vibe to Drinningen (The Queen of Hearts).

    Terminator: Dark Fate

    I couldn’t resist checking this out for myself, seeing the reasons why it could be the biggest bomb ever.

    It wasn’t all bad at all. Production design was great. Visual effects good. Mackenzie Davis is great. And it was nice seeing Linda again.

    But there are some major continuity issues, and the screenplay isn’t credible. I felt as if these writers hadn’t seen the first two. It felt almost bombastic by the end.

    I was hoping this could reboot the franchise, instead of a steady decline. I think they’re going to have to wait 10-20 years before they try again.

    Not the most horrible film I thought I might see. But at best average.
    Disappointing.

    Peanut Butter Falcon was pretty good. Nothing too out of the ordinary. A fun little buddy comedy. Solid performances by Dakota Johnson and Zack Gottasgen. May try and sneak the latter on my ballot out of sentimentality.

    The Irishman – not quite S-tier Scorcese, but powerful and tragic in a way few films are.

    Jojo Rabbit – Rewatched it. Still not fond of it, but it’s more palatable to me when I go in not expecting any real satirical insight.

    Birdman – Rewatched it. This holds up as one of the most worthy Best Picture winners this decade. Even ignoring the one-shot presentation, this is a really funny and clever movie.

    For Your Consideration:

    Best Picture: Weathering With You, Parasite, The Lighthouse
    Best Supporting Actor: Willem Dafoe - The Lighthouse
    Best Animated Feature: Weathering With You, Promare
    Best International Film: Weathering With You, Parasite

    Amazing Grace. Damn we lost one of the best voice last year, this doc gave me chills and even cry at some parts.

    Pain and Glory is a slow-burning, intimate masterpiece. I love Almodovar, but I’ve never been as moved by his film as much as this one. And forget about Phoenix and Driver…the Best Actor performance we should be talking about is Banderas. I didn’t know he had this in him. Every movement, every grimace, every word resonated with pain and vulnerability.

    I rewatched Schindler’s List over the weekend. It definitely deserved Best Picture and is one of the best films of the 90s. It is such a impressive piece of cinema in every aspect from the score to the cinematography to the editing (the three hours flies by). And it packs the perfect emotional gutpunch.

    The Warrior Queen of Jhansi; Swati Bhise

    I saw this because I needed to support a film noone will see, and because I wanted to check just how right they get it.
    It’s the story of shield maiden rani
    Lakshmibai, who never stopped fighting for her people.
    My biggest fear was that it may have similar tones with Amazing Grace, easily the worst example of saviour complex.
    Instead the opposite is true; following Miss Vicki’s pattern throughout her reign, including Botswana and South African protectionism, Bhise knows and cares about her history
    It’s one of the most impressive debuts by a Director I’ve seen in a long while, and her passion is apparent but never overblown.

    I was planning to see FvF afterwards, but I wasn’t expecting the emotional punch this film would have.

    Yeah, it was really good. Especially, Keira Knightley.

    Chocolat.

    It was such a sweet movie. Just like Babette’s Feast.

    I’m really glad you liked it because it could be one of the most reviled film at GD. It was so sweet tempered and JD gives my fave perf of his, probably because he was so sexy. Dench’es nomination is trashed as unchallenging, but I loved her in it. in fact I loved each and every performance from that stellar cast, and Binoche is her usual sublime self.
    I was convinced I was the only one standing that loved it.

    Chocolat needs more appreciation here then. The film aims to tell people that they shouldn’t judge others and they should embrace each other’s differences. If it’s reviled here, I think it’s because some people failed to see the message the film was trying to deliver. It was good to see Johnny in a film like this. I found his character and performance candid. Judi was really good in it. However, my favorite is definitely Juliette.

    well I don’t know the specific reasons, but i was presented with reason after reason why I was wrong to like it and bore the brunt of shame but I held my ground and said bite me . I like it.
    There was also some political reason why I shouldn’t be liking this film.

    It’s sweet nature, the tolerance , the redemption and forgiveness is why I loved it. My kind of film and yours. Sentimental saps in a harsh world.
