But why is her filmography hit-and-miss? That’s my question.May 1, 2020 at 6:39 pm #1203458090
Who gives the best performances to you?April 30, 2020 at 7:58 pm #1203456519
I do think, at least for me, that she left the biggest impression on me in terms of the cast (I think my knowledge of Song Kang ho helped me expect the great performance we got from him). As has been said, the combo of her looks and her character arc and performance all made for great publicity tools. Even if she was my favorite, ALL of the women were fantastic in this film.
Yeah, she definitely left the biggest impression on me too. She was definitely my favorite. It could have been so easy for the character to feel like a stereotype or caricature but Cho really gave an excellent performance, and I think the best performance in the film. I feel like she honestly should have been nominated and even won an Oscar, she was that good. Of course the whole cast was great but it’s just something about Cho’s performance that really made her a standout in an all-around excellent ensemble.April 24, 2020 at 1:38 pm #1203445826
@Kelvin I’d say Joker deserved all other nominations and especially deserved the win for Joaquin Phoenix. I just don’t understand why it was nominated for makeup & hair and costume design. It was just so simple to me. The only real costume he wore was the red suit which to me was nothing special and the makeup and hair literally could have been done by the actor himself. It’s really the makeup & hair that bothers me.April 24, 2020 at 1:30 pm #1203445812
Can you explain how so? To me it was so simple.April 20, 2020 at 1:37 am #1203436399
Of course I know everyone won’t blow up just because they have talent but China Anne had her own show on the Disney Channel and released music and so on. If you compare her to other Disney stars in similar positions it’s odd. Also the Anita Baker stuff was barely publicized.April 18, 2020 at 6:59 am #1203433523
I just rewatched The Hours yesterday. It’s not a great movie, but the amount of talent on screen makes it intensely rewatchable. The three stories are also very well paced and weaved together, with occasional moments of true emotional poignancy.
It’s interesting. You said it’s not a great film but you also praised the most important aspects of the film. Would you say it’s a good movie then? What makes it not great? And what would have made it better?
Can anyone also please enlighten to me as to why Virginia full on made out with her sister Vanessa played by Richardson.
It actually was reported that Virginia and Vanessa did in fact have an incestuous relationship. If you do research on the topic you’ll find the different accounts written about it. In regards to why Virginia and Vanessa passionately kissed, if you look closely you’ll notice that Virginia was the one who came onto Vanessa and then kissed her, not the other way around. I can’t find the interview but Nicole Kidman once said that Virginia kisses Vanessa so passionately because Virginia longs for her sister’s life and the kiss serves as a way to kind of suck some of that spark and energy out of her sister. It’s similar to how Laura was sort of jealous in a way of Kitty’s life and was much more upbeat. It’s difficult to explain but I hope I’m making sense and helped. She wants to live in London, which is made clear in the film first while she’s talking to Vanessa and then when she flees her home to catch a train to London. It was clear that when Vanessa was leaving Virginia didn’t want her to stay and I see their kiss as Virginia’s way of asking her to stay and a sad goodbye.April 8, 2020 at 12:25 pm #1203416172
I don’t know why we have a forum about her. She seems like a good actress. Not anything particularly impressive but good. Maybe there’s more to her than what we’ve seen so far.
Laura is going to be in the TV show Hollywood on Netflix which is coming out soon. It looks really promising and it looks like we’ll be able to see her act her face off. She’s one of the lead characters and from all the photos and videos I’ve seen of her she looks great.April 7, 2020 at 4:08 pm #1203414822
Part of it is because the show is becoming bigger in ways that aren’t necessarily a good thing. The show started out as a show centered around a small group of kids (and a few adults) who we came to love who found themselves in a very strange situation. I think part of the issue is that seasons 2 and 3 introduced more major characters in a show that already has so many characters and the show is feeling less and less like an authentic show that could have been made in the 80s but instead a show from now that’s trying to imitate the 80s. The actors are also all now teenagers and so are the main kids who are now teenagers too. The show has lost the sentimental quality that it used to have and the characters that we love are now losing screen time, at least in my opinion.
I myself enjoyed season 1 but I felt like season 2 was just the same thing, though I enjoyed it but less than I did before, and season 3 I enjoyed but less than the previous two seasons. Looking back I feel like all three seasons have been the same story over and over with no real progression and it’s worrying because I think the show started out great.April 7, 2020 at 3:43 pm #1203414796
Kidman, Moore, and Streep are all leads. It’s three-lead movie. If I had to chose one lead I’d pick Kidman. Despite having the least amount of screen time of the three, the film is ultimately about Virginia Woolf. We open and close the movie with her and her words and her life and her work, specifically Mrs. Dalloway, literally influences the lives of the women that come after her, in this case Moore’s and Streep’s characters. Her presence was felt throughout the film whereas I can’t say the same for the other two women.April 7, 2020 at 3:28 pm #1203414770
I don’t understand why Anthony Hopkins won in the leading actor category for Silence of the Lambs. I’ve watched numerous films where supporting characters are felt throughout the film yet they were considered supporting characters both to me and the general public. He was great in the film of course but I truly don’t get it. Jodie Foster was the one and only lead. This wasn’t a movie with co-leads. By this logic isn’t Alicia Vikander in Ex Machina a leading actress? I know, random example, but it’s what came to my mind that was similar.
The only legitimate actor or actress to win in a leading role that had the least amount of screen time of the major characters yet was the true lead in their given film was Nicole Kidman in The Hours.April 7, 2020 at 2:46 pm #1203414707
She was good in Blackkklansman. But nothing else in her filmography has been particularly noteworthy. Her role in Spider-Man could’ve been played by anyone.
I wonder why they chose to go with making Zendaya’s character Peter’s ultimate love interest rather than Liz. I would have liked to see a build up to Peter and Liz finally being able to be together. It was a bit of a strange choice for me how they just kind of swept Laura’s role under the carpet when there seemed to be so much buildup in the first movie for Peter to be with her only for her to move away. Kind of turned me off and I found it so strange.
Laura is a main character in the upcoming Hollywood TV series on Netflix so we’ll be able to see more of her there. She hasn’t been able to get big roles until she got Spider-Man and it’s only now that she’s finally breaking out more. I just wish she was in the Spider-Man franchise for a little longer.April 3, 2020 at 11:34 pm #1203409116
Adèle Exarchopoulos and Léa Seydoux – Blue is the warmest color Jennifer Lawrence – mother! Tilda Swinton – We need to talk about Kevin Kirsten Dunst – Melancholia
I totally agree for all of them. And funnily enough I’ve seen all those movies and love all the movies too.April 2, 2020 at 3:44 pm #1203407107
In what world did Greta Gerwig steal Jackie? I echo the poster that said Jennifer Garner in Juno.
I didn’t necessarily mean actors that literally stole the show or scenes, just actors that were great in their small roles. Some actors I listed I thought either stole the scenes they were in or did great with the little that they had to do. In Jackie I definitely think Natalie Portman was the standout throughout but the few times Greta was on screen in it I thought she really good with the little she had to do.
