I feel like people overestimated it? It was a quiet film, a debut film and I feel like it got in exactly where it should have? It’s a highly regarded small film with one rising star who is the main focus of the movie. Imo it was never getting film, directing or screenplay, like, it’s just way too small for that.
Unfortunately I agree. It’s a wonderful flim but as you said, it’s small and didn’t have the push it needed. I think the recognition for Mescal was the right decision.December 30, 2022 at 6:45 am #1205214062
Yay for the love Brian’s getting!! I know it’s a long shot but he has a fighting chance.December 30, 2022 at 6:40 am #1205214058
Apparently, this is Brad Pitt’s biggest bomb since True Romance in 1993. That’s the year I was born.
lol is this why I saw an uptake of “these are Brad Pitt’s films that critics love” articles the other day? Everyone’s PR is working hard this holiday season hahaReplyDecember 24, 2022 at 8:22 am #1205208494
Agreed. He won’t be seeing a budget that big in a long time time. Could be a blessing in disguiseDecember 23, 2022 at 3:12 pm #1205207831
I liked her performance in Babylon but I agree. In a way I hate that she took the Quinn role. I think she’s unconsciously falling back on that type of character and it’s holding her back.December 23, 2022 at 2:45 pm #1205207772
Expect Angelina has already won a case in Luxembourg after he tried saying she didn’t pay a dollar for the winery shares he gave her back in 2013. Sounds more like Brad is the Amber in this situation in regards of the truth trickling out in court because they couldn’t support their claims.
That being said, I didn’t like it as much as I expected too. I LOVED the script but it was rough finishing the last leg. I personally think Chazelle’s writing is weaker then his other talents and this unfortunately highlighted it. I am dying to know his thought process behind the ending because I didn’t like any of it lol.
Brad and Margot were great as usual and props to Diego for holding his own. I hope we see more of him in the future. Tobey’s character was a great edition as well and I am surprised he wasn’t really mentioned in the reviews I saw. Still hoping it can pull a BP nomination and a decent box office run.
For anyone who has read the script and watched the movie, which one did you like better? Anything you would have done differently?ReplyDecember 14, 2022 at 7:02 pm #1205195516
I loved this script but it sounds like it may not have translated well on screen. I am eagerly waiting for that embargo to be lifted. What an exciting moment for Diego. I cant help but to root for the underdog!December 14, 2022 at 6:40 pm #1205195489
Loved Bulter’s performances but I disliked the movie as well. I am going to wait to see how the SAG and BAFTA go before formally fitting it into a category.ReplyDecember 14, 2022 at 6:22 pm #1205195477
I don’t either. It was a great performance but I was surprised by the GG nomination. That being said i wouldn’t mind if she was nominatedDecember 14, 2022 at 5:42 pm #1205195426
Just a quick correction about Pitt. It came up in the divorce. It’s the reason he had supervised visitations for so long. The divorce papers were sealed so no one knew the details. The FBI never said he was innocent but that they decided not to charge him. The report said Jolie and kids werent being that forthcoming in their interviews. The agents wanted to charge him but it changed at the attonery’s office. It would have been a gamble to charge him on federal charges and have her completely shut down so it makes sense. From the video I saw it’s only coming up now because he tried to attach to an NDA about the incident to the deal. Not very smart but you live and learn.
He’s been on my list for awhile since I read the script but now I am not so sure. It’s actually the reason why I finally made an account lol. I think I miscalculated Jolie’s own star power. Unfortunately I think SAG and the academy will play it safe. The winery case came at a poor time* because I don’t think we will see Brad in a other meaty role like this.
*(Please note that I am not trying to say allegations should never be bought to public, I am strictly referring to the timing being bad for a possible nomination)Not now
