My opinion on this is rather simple: a movie as well received as TLD is never a burden. Comer will be more than fine after this. All her three movies this year were a huge win for her, but for different reasons – some commercial, some artistic. Life of an actor in a nutshell.November 10, 2021 at 10:51 am #1204569632
From Clayton Davis at Variety: Perception can be reality, but the narrative that “The Last Duel” is critically divided has occupied conversations surrounding it
yeah, it’s a lazy narrative and it’s simply not true. I know that those “narratives” are part of clickbait culture, but it is seriously so annoying.
I think TLD is getting a bit of “underdog” treatment on twitter & co. It’s a mixture of “I can’t believe how good this movie was” with “I can’t believe Disney didn’t even try with this one”. So people are lowkey rooting for it, because they feel it deserves better.
It’s a nice spot for this film to be at, where truly anything can happen.October 17, 2021 at 10:16 am #1204522933
To me the biggest shocker was that Disney never backed down from October wide release knowing damn well, that that month will be blockbusters bloodbath. What’s even more bizzare is that they went with wide release instead of limited on the first weekend (that was their original plan). But I don’t know…maybe 45-days window was the reason?
Overall, puzzling strategy.
The movie was always a hard sell. No one realistically expected “happy-box office-ending” for it, but those low numbers are still shocking.
Still, the turn around in reviewes and public response to TLD is amazing and really great to see.October 16, 2021 at 9:29 am #1204521846
Where do you see 200M for this? There’s no way this cost 200 million to make. Are you including marketing or something?
Yeah, and I’m guessing it would have to be some mindblowing marketing to push the budget to that number.
That number seems fake (posted by one obscure site). No valid source has any confirmation for it. So until that happens, no one really knows what’s the real budget. But I’m pretty sure 200M is not it.August 20, 2021 at 11:16 am #1204406783
Watched 3 episodes and it was pretty good. Sandra is great. It’s not really memorable though so I’m doubting its chances to go all the way to the emmys. I guess we will see how it performs in winter.
Yeah, was thinking the same thing. I remember when I saw the trailer and first reviews, for some reason I was getting strong HBO’s “Run” vibes in the terms of how the show will be received by critics and how by the actual audience etc.
It is, I think fairly impossibile to actively hate this show (because it does have some really funny moments), but at the same time, it’s hard to have strong feelings and passion for it. For a show that is trying to tackle some hot topics, “The Chair” is in my opinion surprisingly non-offensive and thootless.September 22, 2020 at 7:24 am #1203727460
Devastated by this news, but not surprised.
At this point I’m just happy I lived to see full season of that universe. Never, ever thought it would happen.September 17, 2020 at 9:36 am #1203712732
Just saying British performances Jodie Comer has praised tend to have been nominated at the Emmys (*coughs* Sian Clifford, Paul Mescal *coughs*)
She also praised many times I May Destroy You.
I hope next year her magic “awards-prediction-powers” will work with this show too.September 8, 2020 at 10:50 pm #1203694304
Read carefully, it won’t change anything.
Yeah, twitter reacted at first like it always reacts. But now more and more finally realize that this is really…not a big deal, because as someone said, pretty much every single BEST P. nominee from the last 3 or 4 decades met the criteria.
I’m sure there will be a lot of conversations about it and maybe even some changes to these rules. Personally I don’t know what to think. I guess I don’t necessary think this is the way. Mainly because changes don’t come from checkbox mentality that studios and networks promote when it comes to diversity (I think Sandra Oh mentioned that in her interview with GB), but from deeper and more meaningful understanding of the problem and the process.
It’s like with Oscars so white. At its core it was never about number of nominated black actors, it was about the whole industry. Who is in charge, who makes the call and why.August 22, 2020 at 8:15 am #1203660422
Just watched ep 11.
To say I’m anxious before the finale (this Monday) would be understatement.
This is an incredibly comprehensive and challenging piece of art on consent. It truly goes on to depict things I have never seen on a show before.
I’m planning to watch this show again very soon. There are so many things to unpack in each episode.August 15, 2020 at 2:15 pm #1203647480
Just watched ep 9 and 10 and honestly, this is truly remarkable show. Especially ep 9 “Social Media Is a Great Way to Connect” was uncompromising but in a way that didn’t feel manipulative. She really knows how to held her characters accountable. But she is dropping those truth bombs in a deeply empathic way. For a show that so easily could choose “us vs them” narrative while discussing various topics, she often challanges that binary thinking in the most unexpected ways.
I mean ep 10, my godness, that was just terrific and heartbreaking.
I think this is going to be my number one show this year.
Sorry She-Ra!July 31, 2020 at 12:26 pm #1203618969
There could ony be one winner in that category. What an icon.July 31, 2020 at 12:24 pm #1203618962
aww, Jared! So happy he won, tho pretty much anyone in that category would be a great choice.July 31, 2020 at 12:20 pm #1203618950
okay, Stath Lets Flats win in Scripted Comedy – expected, but The End of the F***ing World in Drama? Whoa.July 31, 2020 at 11:59 am #1203618872
I can’t watch this unique ceremony, because I don’t live in the UK, but first impressions? Do you guys already see what is and isn’t working and what should the Emmys avoid?Not now
