Sound of Metal is poorly paced and Paul Raci was distractingly amateurishApril 30, 2021 at 1:38 pm #1204236669

I am already preparing for the inevitable narrative that pits WEST SIDE STORY and IN THE HEIGHTS against each other, both as musicals and as boons (or not) for their representation of Puerto Ricans.
Assuming neither of them are shockingly abysmal, I’d set aside two of my Best Picture predix slots for them and would consider that Jon M. Chu will receive his first Best Director nomination.
I doubt In the Heights will be a Best Picture player with its summer release, regardless of quality.April 26, 2021 at 10:48 am #1204229385
Oscar voters are becoming less aware of external factors that go beyond the film/performance. How many times did we say voters wouldn’t give Frances McDormand a third Oscar or wouldn’t pass up the opportunity to honor Chadwick Boseman’s legacy? We got a taste of this when Rylance beat Stallone and Colman beat Close but now it’s more clear.April 26, 2021 at 10:44 am #1204229371
She’s not in the same league as Streep and DDL in my opinion. That being said, I can’t begrudge her win for Nomadland. I just wish she hadn’t won for Three Billboards.April 25, 2021 at 11:29 pm #1204227529
Can we take a moment to recognize that Joel Coen and Frances McDormand now have 8 Oscars between the two of them (4 each)April 25, 2021 at 8:59 pm #1204226794
I’m happy for McDormand’s win tonight but I wish she hadn’t won for Three Billboards. Sally Hawkins, Margot Robbie, or Saoirse Ronan would have made terrific winners, and are all still Oscar-less.April 25, 2021 at 8:43 pm #1204226589
Personal feelings aside, is this the best acting quartet… ever?

11/11 so far. Yes, they’re predictable but I never do this well lolApril 24, 2021 at 7:37 pm #1204220217
So excited for the West Side Story trailer!April 22, 2021 at 8:23 am #1204214938
I loved the pilot, just for the fact that it was competently made. There are so many shows just like this (on HBO specifically) and so many of them miss the mark from the get go. This pilot gave me the sense that this production team (and the writers) know what they’re doing. Clear characterization, realistic mysteries, good world-building. And it wasn’t so dark that I couldn’t see anything! (looking at you, True Detective and Sharp Objects)
