Looks fun. But that was very much expected. Leo looks great in this. Brad looks like he could be very funny in it. It’s a teaser, of course, but the whole Charles Manson angle was very much ignored in favor of a tale of some hollywood star and his stunt double. Didn’t get anything else besides that. I found it weird. But it is a teaser so we’ll see.
Posters are fucking awful. As is the title design for the film.March 18, 2019 at 10:34 am #1202820757
The film that made 180 million dollars in the US, 500 worlwide is underrated? The film that got 12 Oscar nods, 2 for acting, Leo’s long deserved Oscar, consecutive wins for the director and cinematographer is underrated?March 16, 2019 at 8:26 am #1202818519
Easily the best Drag Race episode in a very long time. Nina’s team really did try to change my mind about how awful this new group of girls is. They all did a great job. I’m a little pissed that Vanjie go so little air time during the critique considering how she absolutely killed that challenge. But she fucked up the runway after 2 weeks of (also red?) looks. So she couldn’t win. Nina deserved her win.
The other team was the mess we’ve come to expect from these challenges. I perfectly understood where Plastique was going with her devil voice, I don’t know why Ross and the other judges were pretending like it didn’t make sense.
Judging was tough, last week too, so I’m definetely not alone in thinking this season sucks. I could even believe that I see Ru noticing it too and being this tough to try and correct their lameness and put them to work and try to make a better season showing them with this 6 person lipsync how awful they’ve been.
Plastique deservingly got called out first as safe.
The eliminated girl, Honey?, deserved to go. I thought 2 girls would be sent home.
Michelle barely spoke during the judging. Something was up. They even forced in many many shots of her just agreeing, as if she wasn’t really there for the entire judging. Ross definitely took over.
The editing on Ru during the workroom visit was also weird.
I could watch this episode again.
Great and extremely funny and sort of shocking episode.March 11, 2019 at 9:08 am #1202812447
This season continues to be a letdown. By this point last year we were in the middle of the “Vanjie” memes and Kalorie, the only terrible queen, was gone. If last season had 14 girls then at least 12 of those girls ended up being great, taking out Kalorie and how terrible the thing with Vixen ended up. Everybody else was somehow memorable or just plain great. This year the cast has been very disappointing and I don’t expect it to improve until many girls are gone and the true good ones rise.
This bottom two lipsync was like watching Kalorie and Vixen, it was that bad. Both could’ve gone home. But the better one stayed. Kahanna looked like a season 1-4 girl. That’s the worst thing you can look like in this competition. Same for Mercedes.
The challenge was fun, Silky keeps annoying but she’s the sole entertainment of the season, so she won’t stop being featured like that until she’s gone.
I hope Vanjie can stay much longer. She’s so ridiculously lame in the challenges that it’s funny and her runway has been great. This week was way too literal, but I feel she deserved to be on the top again.
I can never recognize Plastique once she’s in drag. She’s an asian boy but a regular white girl in drag. Why is that?
The two girls fighting, Ivye and….whoever, were fun. The other girl reminds me of Shangela during the confessional.
Plastique, Brooklyn and now Scarlett are the frontrunners for the top 3/4.March 6, 2019 at 6:21 pm #1202806767
When do they film? Cracker won’t be doing Review with a Jew this season “because of her tour”. I think they film much later in the year right?March 5, 2019 at 10:03 pm #1202805451
The premiere was terrible. And the results were ridiculous. Mercedes Iman Whatever and speccially Kahana Montrese should’ve been easy eliminations.
The top 3 really was the top 3 of the episode. Vanjie looked great.
Clearly the material they had for episode 1 was so lame that they had to overuse Silky like that. What an annoying person.
I need to see this week’s episode because this was very boring. I remember last year during episode 1 I thought that many, many girls were great. And then all 14 became great and memorable. This season better step up.March 2, 2019 at 8:29 am #1202801302
Since she made it this far, she might do it again. You never know. But she’s not necessarily a professional actress yet, I suppose. So who knows what her intentions are, first of all. And I don’t think she displayed such an insane talent that she will “obviusly come back”. She has to work on it all like many have said. Her acting, accent, and so on.February 25, 2019 at 8:01 am #1202793613
Some were terrible. I mentioned this on another thread too. Aparicio had better than the roof scene. Colman’s clip was dominated by Rachel Weisz.February 25, 2019 at 6:48 am #1202793443
The difference with Blunt though is that she wasn’t nominated. My guess is that if she was, she would have sung. I don’t blame Blunt and Krasinski for not attending. It’s not like The Quiet Place was a “big” nominee. As for Manuel-Miranda, he also had no business being there (unless he was a presenter) as Mary Poppins wasn’t a big player either. If “Trip A Little Light” was nominated, I’m also sure he would have performed too.
Again, Miranda obviously loves award shows and the Oscars. His film had several nominations and he could’ve presented his film’s song. He could’ve been the one coming down with an umbrella. A thing he clearly would’ve loved to do considering how he is. Blunt is still in a Disney film with some nominations, on a Disney network on a Disney show.
Even Jason Momoa went/was invited after his film got extremely fucked by the academy in the vfx category. Crazy Rich Asians people also presented.
It seems weird. Those 3 are the kind of people you’d expect to be presenters.February 25, 2019 at 6:30 am #1202793423
I think in the end the fluke wasn’t her, which many people commented about, the fluke were the snubs. I think it was very telling how she won everything (or almost all of it) she was nominated for, and whenever she wasn’t nominated, those who won, clearly won because King wasn’t there.
Weisz won Bafta for being british (and Bafta loooved her film, the Oscars clearly didn’t), Blunt won SAG without even being an Oscar nominee or the supposed next in line to King. That says a lot. Of course Coleman won for being british too and ended up with the Oscar, but King and this category were far more “set” and out of options than Best Actress/Close.
King had everything going for her, including a category where only she mattered, she has/had huge industry support. Those 3 Emmys helped, she’s not Monique who came out of nowhere with that performance, or Marcia Gay Harden who came out of nowhere with a nomination. She had been extremely visible and beloved for these past few years and was praised and predicted from the start. Her status kept her visible and in the race, even when she wasn’t nominated. She even got a lot of work as a director recently, expanding her reach within the industry. And she campaigned.
It was a nice win. Very much deserved.February 25, 2019 at 6:16 am #1202793394
Glenn didn’t win because academy voters realized she was playing in an hallmark movie and having an average performance, that’s all.
Well, they thought it was okay for a performace/film with that same description to win Best Actor and 3 other awards last night too. So Close could’ve won.February 25, 2019 at 6:12 am #1202793388
I must say, well done to Bradley Cooper for singing his duet at the Oscars and not chickening out like Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling and Renée Zellweger before him. He did a pretty good job (trained singer writing here) and it was a nice moment that will be remembered. Good for him.
Or Emily Blunt. Did she ever give a reason for not doing it? Just realized that Blunt and Krasinski didn’t go. It even seems weird not seeing Lin Manuel Miranda there. Not that I needed him there, but he seems like such a showbiz whore, and it made sense for him to be there.February 25, 2019 at 6:05 am #1202793378
Close didn’t have the “clip”, Colman did. What I mean is like Nicole Kidman had that moment in The Hours where she yells “I’m dying in this town” Colman had that in the look it me/don’t look it me scene.
If you go by the assumption that a lot of people don’t even watch the movies (which I think is somewhat likely) having a good clip moment capn probably pull in a bunch of votes.
Coleman’s Oscar clip during the ceremony was basically a Weisz clip.
They did a terrible job, Aparicio doesn’t have much in Roma, but she has more than that roof scene. Close also had better than that plane scene with Christian Slater, of all people.
Seriously, what the fuck? Glenn Close’s Oscar scene is with Christian Slater? And the best actor winner became famous because of a show with…Christian Slater?February 24, 2019 at 11:06 pm #1202792721
Colman was a much bigger surprise.
I don’t remember being shocked at all by Cotillard.
