Well, considering this show has about one and a half decent performances on a rare not-bad episode, none of them being either of these, I don’t know how cold this result is hahaJuly 3, 2020 at 6:51 pm #1203565780
Wasn’t this already remade in 2017? It was called Phantom Thread and it was great.July 3, 2020 at 11:36 am #1203565168
Ugh, Riley, your tepid predictions of Better Things pulling a mild explosion in nominations is producing something close to hope in me.July 1, 2020 at 1:28 pm #1203561202
Best of the sequels by far, better than most of the original trilogy (save for the first film) but does not even come close to the prequels.
I’d give it a 2.5/5July 1, 2020 at 8:39 am #1203560689
Terence Davies, Kathleen Hepburn, Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers, and Zhao Tao! What wonderful inclusions 🙂June 29, 2020 at 2:18 pm #1203557660
No, because I still don’t agree lolJune 29, 2020 at 12:25 pm #1203557450
Except it’s not literally half though is it. It might be figuratively half but in terms of the actual numbers his storyline gets at most 10 minutes on screen before the finale so that’s more like 1/5 of the narrative we see. Just because the storylining only has two major sections doesn’t mean we should ignore that this is weighted very heavily towards one and not the other for most of the series.
That’s why I said “narratively,” which you just brushed away because people love to use runtime to justify placement. I’ve made it clear many times before on these forums that I don’t like that way of thinking about characterization and category placement.June 29, 2020 at 8:08 am #1203556917
Lead. Quite literally half the narrative is centered on his character.June 26, 2020 at 12:41 pm #1203553341
I’m ignoring the user who called audiences dumb
Lol. Not that you’ll see this, but there is a difference between having an opinion worthy of consideration and knowing what you’re talking about. I’m referring to the latter while also not dismissing the former.
It’s fun to have someone confirm an “ignore!”June 26, 2020 at 9:39 am #1203553031
…probably because most audiences are dumb. It’s not as if the American masses are very discerning. That does not in any way discount their taste! It does, however, shift the discussion of perspective when considering art.June 26, 2020 at 9:16 am #1203553012
Of these, easily the Before trilogy, as others have said. As for trilogies not on the list, despite how unpopular this opinion is on these forums, I would have to also throw support behind the Star Wars prequel trilogy.June 25, 2020 at 9:42 pm #1203552403
Well, my first point would be: human survival is at least a little more important than movie theater survival, right? Multiplexes will survive, because Disney and Netflix will be quick to start investing in exhibition now that my blessed anti-trust laws are no longer in effect. Independent and arthouse theaters will struggle, but there is still a market for them, so it may just be a case of shuttering until they can be re-established at some point in the future.
But to your vaccine point: China is rapidly approaching having a vaccine and they will beat the US in trying to secure a patent or whatever, so I think we’re fine there. I think that’s more of a “when” rather than an “if.” You may be rightfully concerned that one vaccine will not do, as this virus seems to quickly mutate. It’ll be a long battle, but I’m also confident we will have vaccines in the future.June 25, 2020 at 9:27 pm #1203552382
If they keep pushing release dates like this, eventually they will be square in the autumn and winter seasons, where we’ll be subject the second wave of the virus. Just postpone theater openings until there’s a vaccine (and most people receive the vaccine).June 20, 2020 at 11:04 am #1203543765
My whole point is that the law is broken! It is built to protect those accused, and to shame victims.June 20, 2020 at 10:02 am #1203543722
Answer this: Who is she? Where did this take place? When? How? You can’t! Because she never gave us any other information that would rightfully condemn him. All we know is that she was a 5’2, 98lbs, 17 years old girl who hit up a celebrity through DM. Then an alleged rape took place. That’s not enough to prove he’s guilty. A case like this would be thrown out of court because of a lack of precise evidence.
Why do you care so much about the corrupt Amerikkkan court system? 98% of “accusations” are true. Women are incentivized to not come forward with their true accusations because of abuse and retraumatization at the hands of mass rape culture, which you are playing into.
Anyway, Elgort is facing multiple accusations at this point, so now your “case” is settled. He’s guilty.
