PostSubject: Oscar nominations. Thoughts?   Tue Jan 23, 2018 11:00 am

I usually just follow this to know which movies to check out when they are available to rent lol Laughing but I'm still rooting for some movies I already watched.

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/lists/oscar-nominations-2018-complete-list-nominees-1067893


My thoughts:

-I will probably be crucified for this, but I still think Get Out is one of the most overrated movies ever. I am not saying it was a bad movie. I actually really enjoyed watching it. But umm yea, not even close to one of the best horror movies I've ever seen. Again, my opinion.

-Yay for Greta Gerwig and Lady Bird. Love that movie.

-I really need to check out CMBYN and Shape of Water. Probably gonna watch Mudbound later today.

-Yay for Blade Runner 2049. Sad it didn't get BP or Directing nomination, but at least I am glad it wasn't totally ignored.

-Not seen Logan yet, but definitely adding it to my To Watch list for this weekend.

-I think I screwed up by watching Dunkirk on my tiny tablet, with cheap earphones on Laughing because I can tell that movie definitely deserves all the nominations it got for technical stuff.

-No love for Wonder Woman is kinda surprising.

-Also, what's a Phantom Thread?

Franco might have been Oldman's biggest competition for Best Actor. Now I think he has it in the bag, but I wouldn't be upset of Timothée Chalamet somehow got it.

Wonder Woman is good, but highly overrated. Glad Logan got more recognition.

Get Out isn’t winning lol. It’s going to go to either Shape of Water or Three Billboards. Happy that Jordan Peele was nominated though.

I think that Phantom Thread is my favorite of all the movies. Call Me By Your Name is next and then Three Billboards. Henry wanted to know what Phantom Thread was...I would have to tell you not to bother Henry, because the movie will probably bore you. I find it a gorgeous and brilliant work by one of the best directors of this generation, Paul Thomas Anderson. It stars Daniel Day Lewis and it is reported that it is the last movie he will ever do. We shall see...

I just saw Phantom Thread today actually. It was beautifully made. Daniel Day Lewis really knows how to disappear into a role.

I need to see three movies and then I'm set. Dunkirk is back in theaters so I'm glad I waited instead of watching it on my computer like I planned on lol.

lol David, I knew about that movie, I was just joking. But you're right, it doesn't really sound like something I'm that interested in watching right now. I'll catch it when it's on HBO or something Laughing

Shape of water is Amelie meets Creature from the black lagoon....or perhaps I should say, del torro wishes his film was half as good as Amelie.....oh and he also ripped off Jeunet's bathroom scene from Delicatessen.
Three billboards is the best on that list (that I have seen).
Dunkirk is so overrated and badly edited, I can't believe it's nominated in that category.
I only managed to sit through 20 mins of Lady bird.
Logan sucked to the point that I thought it was an advert for Dyson.
Get out was predictable and...felt like a prolonged 80 min set up for a weak conclusion.
I want to see "On body and soul" , the Hungarian entry for best foreign language film, as well as Phantom Thread and The big sick

I have only seen the Square, the Swedish entry for best foreign film. It was interesting and truly bizarre. I hope to see the other entries. You are correct about The Shape of Water Pete. I was thinking the same thing as I watched it.

The Academy confidently reaffirms the general opinion that it is run by a bunch of brainless fuckwits who wouldn't know a decent movie if it slapped them in the face with an oscar-shaped strap-on.

Shape of Water is not the best movie. Almost all of the nominated films are better than that one.

Shape of Water <3 I'm glad Del Toro finally won. He's deserved an Oscar prior to now but they never get it right anyway.

I got 19 of my predictions right. Would have had more if I hadn't voted on my heart with some of them (Sally Hawkins for leading actress and Mystery of Love for original song), but I'm so happy Shape of Water won. I thought Three Billboards had it, but Shape of Water was my favorite out of the bunch.

Well everyone has different tastes, but my favorites were Call Me By Your Name, Phantom Thread and Three Billboards. Lady Bird was also pretty good, The reason The Shape of Water didn't impress me was that it seemed to steal the look and ideas from Jean-Pierre Jeunet. There were even a few scenes that were glaringly copied from Jeunet's movies. Also, the fact that the Sally Hawkins character had sex with an amphibian was just weird. I couldn't wrap my head around that.

I wish that Timothee Chalamet won best actor. He was incredible in Call Me By Your Name. My favorites rarely win, so I never really watch the show much anymore.
