Stan and Ollie looks interesting. Seems odd but it appears it's not getting nationwide release.
Drunk and stupid is no way to be remembered but it is an easy way to forget.

But I took them away from all that. Now they work for me.

I'm sure it probably will get a wider release at some point.

I can't see any plans for a wider release at this time, but they did get it out by December 28 in order for it to be considered for 2018 awards. May be seeing how it stacks up there before deciding how much distribution to give it.
Which part? And who are you?

Saw Bohemian Rhapsody tonight... I liked it... not a plot heavy film but the music is contagious because it's ya know, Queen, and you could tell that Rami Malek did his work to re-create Freddy... the Live Aid re-creation is pretty epic and brings some real emotion knowing Freddy was sick and what his fate would be... deserves the accolades

Seems like a weird Oscars year.

https://variety.com/2019/film/news/osca ... 203112405/

No major (or in most cases any) nominations for: Sorry to Bother You, Annihilation, Leave no Trace, You Were Never Really Here, Eighth Grade, First Reformed (screenplay only), A Quiet Place, The Death of Stalin, Paddington 2, among others.

I've only seen 3 of those (Sorry to Bother You, Annihilation, A Quiet Place) and I thought they were all overrated. I haven't seen the others, but maybe this is one of those times I agree with the critics.

I agree. Seems like it's setting up for a crowd pleaser (Bohemian Rhapsody?) to win.

They were all good and Green Book is bad (I have never seen Green Book but I feel safe in this).

I'm guessing Bohemian Rhapsody or A Star is Born... maybe Vice... I liked Bohemian Rhapsody a little more than A Star is Born... probably take Malek for Best Actor... he really had Freddy down... I guess Glenn Close has Best Actress type chops but they could out of the box with Gaga or McCarthy

I think Sorry to Bother You jumped the shark at some point. It had some good moments, but I don't think it was worthy of awards.

Annihilation made no sense and the scientists were bad scientists. I also didn't like the final act.

I thought a Quiet Place was full of holes. It was a decent premise, but the plot was just silly bad. I also have trouble taking the office guy seriously as an actor because he is comically bad at his profession.

I was entertained by all 3, except maybe Annihilation because I found it annoying, but I don't see them as award worthy

Has anyone else seen If Beale Street Could Talk?

I wanted to really love this film, but it felt as almost nothing happened. The dialogue and filming early in the movie made it feel more like a play than an actual movie. During the a lot of conversations the camera would constantly be panning between the two actors that were delivering their lines and rarely cut. It was a distracting to me.

I thought the scene where they landed their apartment was really great. I enjoyed the cinematography on the street immediately after as they celebrated too.

I wish the family dynamics were explored a bit more. There is massive tension with his side of the family and then nothing.

It is powerful because of the makeup of the cast and the story it is attempting to tell. I just don't know if it told it all that well.

I said something similar, Cal -- that things didn't quite coalesce. I think you hit on some of the reasons why.

I remember it fondly though and keep going back to the score.
