Re: 2018-2019 Awards Season

First Man snub for Film, Director, Cinematography, Editing and Score stinks. A very mediocre list for Best Film (still to see two fo them). Would have loved to see Lynne Ramsay also for Director. That film (You Were Never Year Here) was 'Directed' as good as, if not better than, any film on the list...

Re: First Man (2018)

My favourite film of the year by some margin (having seen a lot of the 'front runners')

Re: 2018-2019 Awards Season

Who's going to take it on now knowing their past will be scrutinised? IMHO the academy made a big mistake. This was in the past and they knew it had occurred, so why hire him in the first place? He had addressed and apologised already for the comments. You either accept his past apology and hire the...

Re: Hostiles (2017)

Really great film if you enjoy slow(ish) burn narrative. If I had the chance to see this in the cinema I would take it. Even now.

Re: The Girl in the Spider's Web (2018)

Fincher's film is a favourite of mine from recent years and his 'involvement' in this along with Foy and Hoeks give me some hope but I'm still annoyed he never got to continue the series.

Re: Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019)

I suspect something got lost in translation here. Whilst Morricone has never been one to give two hoots about what people think I doubt he would go out of his way to bad mouth or offend someone without good reason.

Re: First Man (2018)

^^^^^^^^ I agree with alot of what you say. For me it was one of the only times in recent memory that I have come out of the cinema with my expectations surpassed. Thinking about it afterward, certain filmmaking choices I was surprised by or disliked somewhat, make more sense now (to me at least) an...

Re: First Man (2018)

I have to say I am confused over the adoration for the score. Much of its /heavily/ influenced by temp. What’s truly original is fine, if not simple and a little too understated imo. I personally like the score alot but I do agree that he may have been influenced by temp or at least other scores in...

Re: First Man (2018)

Saw this today (non IMAX).

The landing sequence is breathtaking cinema. Want to see it again in IMAX before I come to any concrete conclusion but it's safe to say I really like it.

Re: mother! (2017)

Finally watched this again, this time with brother, and picked up on couple of more things along the way. But what stuck with me the most was that chaotic finale in the house, right before... ...mother delivers the baby. That particular scene perfectly captures the state of fandom(s) nowadays; the ...
