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 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.March 31, 2020 at 7:13 am #1203402561
Why Jackie over Black Swan?March 31, 2020 at 6:46 am #1203402524
Why do you prefer Closer over Jackie and Black Swan? And for those of you that prefer Black Swan over Jackie or vice versa, what are your reasons?March 30, 2020 at 8:22 pm #1203402027
Frances Conroy is great in everything I’ve seen her in no matter how big or small the role. I found her to be great from what I’ve seen in Six Feet Under and also in American Horror Story. I loved her in season 1, 2, and 3. She was also great in Joker despite having very little to do.Not now
