I remain in awe of hereditary. When *that scene* happened I just. It was the most visceral reaction Iíve probably ever had in a theater and it didnít seem cheap at all.

And the idea that toni collette got like no recognition for that role is an absolute travesty. Iím still mad about it.

So is it anything other than a filmmaking achievement? I like the idea of a one shot movie like this but it also seems a bit gimmicky to me? I should probably just watch it.

which scene? i have an assumption, but maybe we're on different pages. and, yes, collette should have earned more acknowledgement.

knives out was a lot of fun and i will probably rewatch it a lot. but i agree that daniel craig's accent was a bit much. i love logan lucky and especially craig's performance in it, so it's not that i'm not used to it, i just think it was far more distracting in knives out than it should have been, especially since he'd done well with that accent before.

Yes and no. In my opinion some sequences benefit more and are a lot more suspenseful and immersive because of it, in others it kinda pulled me out a bit and I kept thinking about what the camera was doing more than what was going on on-screen.

But those moments where it does click are really incredible.

Jojo Rabbit - 4/5
I enjoyed this movie more than I expected and heard people taking issue with how it approaches nazism. I thought it was fine. Some great acting by both kids and Scarlet Johansson.

Also I really enjoyed Taika Waititi's Hitler, and thought it was pretty funny overall... but felt like you could remove it from the movie and lose nothing in the story. But I appreciate it either way.

I felt Us was a bigger snub... really liked that movie
Lupita Nyong'o should've been nominated at the very least.

Weren't the Academy Awards literally started by some bigwig movie exec who wanted to prevent filmmakers from unionizing by throwing shiny trinkets at them to make them feel appreciated?

I don't think they are really much of a metric for anything.

Here are some quotes from a supposed Academy member that allegedly voted in 2020 and — apparently — anonymously revealed their reasoning to a tabloid:

"I want an American director to win. The Oscars is an American thing; English things win BAFTAs and the French vote for the French, and Quentin Tarantino should be honored for a great American movie."

"Parasite is beautifully done, but it didn’t hold up the second time, and I don’t think foreign films should be nominated with the regular films."

"[I voted for Brad Pitt] because he hasn’t won before."


I get that it might be bullshit and that it's only one person in any case, but still. Who are these people and why do we take them seriously with such a poor track record?

Remember when Crash won Best Picture?

Remember when Forrest Gump beat Pulp Fiction?

Remember when Al Pacino got his Best Actor for Scent of a Woman?

Remember when Avatar won Best Cinematography despite pretty much the entire thing being made in James Cameron's custom edition of MS Paint?

Remember Argo? At all? Anybody?

Particularly bad, yes. Was this what brad pitt got the oscar for? I don't follow the oscars for the reasons Buzzard just eloquently listed

What I've read over the years is that a lot, maybe most, voters, have dumbass reasons for voting the way they do, whether it's voting for their friends, not watching all the movies in the category they're voting on, etc., etc., etc.

Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn - 3/5
This movie was fun as hell, kinda wish it had a couple less backs and forths to develop backstories, cause it was a bit tiresome and I wish the other titular Birds of Prey had more to do in the movie.

Never thought i'd want a hyena as a pet.

Barton Fink (rewatch) - 9/10



One thing I don't think I noted last time I watched this was how great the supporting cast is. Michael Lerner and Tony Shalhoub in particular had me giggling for pretty much every scene they were in.

I've only seen it once and I barely remember anything besides everything going up in flames at the end but I always thought it was their best.

Big Lebow is my fav tho. Truth.
