    You guys are dropping it based on a 69 opening MC score? Didn’t Don’t Look Up open to like a 50 last year? What would Netflix’s other BP push be this year outside of Bardo? We know it’s not Blonde. They are quite confident in this given the Festival run it’s about to have. Some of you are jumping the gun, but hey, it’s your predictions, your decision.

    DLU was widely watched and discussed, though – it was mainstream accessible. White Noise won’t be.

    I’m not going to drop the film from my BP predictions and will wait for more reviews. DLU got awful reviews but still got nominated for so many awards.

    Completely normal of people dropping it based on reactions, its genre, and premise. Funny fact: no more than 2 Venice competition films would become BP/BD nominees every year. Stats are just stats, but I think it’ll be interesting to observe.  We’ll be excited to watch the film anyways.

    This is kind of an interesting case honestly. OK sure people are mixed on it, but it still feels like a conversation-starter? Remember last year how every Venice film was just SO DIVISIVE? People are treating White Noise like that—but putting aside the fact that The Power of the Dog, The Lost Daughter, Spencer all had higher MC scores and far better reviews at this point… White Noise actually sounds like it’s a film Netflix viewers might actually like?

    Like, yeah, it’s long but I’m getting the impression that it’s highly entertaining too? It’s not exactly the slow-divisive films that the three above were. Maybe I’m wrong ¯_(ツ)_/¯

    Also I’m kind of surprised how each critic is coming from a strong place of “I know the book really well and this fails as an adaptation.” OK sure it’s a big Great American Novel, but it’s still a literary, niche book. Tons of people will watch it without having read the book—I kinda wonder what they’d think? On Letterboxd, some who don’t seem to know the book kinda love it?

    Justice for Passing, Tessa Thompson & Ruth Negga.

    The Power of the Dog / Jane Campion / Benedict Cumberbatch / Kristen Stewart / Kirsten Dunst / Troy Kotsur

    I unfortunately think you’re giving audiences too much credit. Ten minutes in they’ll be like “ugh, why are they talking like this? Why does he teach Hitler studies? What’s with the weird kids?” and then put on Bridgerton while they do laundry or something.

    A movie that’s heavy with its commentary, premiering on Netflix over the holidays, with mixed critical reception?

    Dang, if only Noah Baumbach had cast Ariana Grande & Kid Cudi…

    Comparing this to DLU makes zero sense when their path to the Oscars were always going to be different.

    A Negroni. Sbagliato. With Prosecco in it.

    What’s the difference between the Metacritic critics score and the Rotten Tomato critics score? Is one more reliable or something? Which is taken into account for determining whether a movie flipped or not?

    Only asking because White Noise currently has a 68 on metacritic with 17 reviews but rotten tomatoes has it at a 91 with 32 reviews and some people are calling it a flop because of the metacritic score

    The Tomatometer shows how many critics thought White Noise was passable. 91% of critics liked White Noise but they didn’t love it since the average rating shown when you click on the tomato is 7.5/10.

    Meanwhile, Metacritic is a weighted average of all critics scores.

    A press conference was held for the film on September 30 before the NYFF premiere later that day. Noah talked about casting Greta as Babette:
