As much as I love Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker is my least favourite Star Wars movie.
Just finished the "Banshees of Inisherim". Amazing performances from Brendan Gleeson, Barry Koegan and Colin Farrell, as well as the actress who played Farrell's sister in the movie. Kind of a depressing movie, but beautifully done.
I wanted Austin Butler to win, but I have not seen Whale yet, so this could be an unfair judgment.Has anybody else seen The Whale? It looks like Brendan Fraser will be winning an Oscar tomorrow. But from watching the trailer for The Whale and all the clips I've seen on talk shows he has appeared on, each makes it look like some pretty bad over-acting. So much so that I don't plan on seeing this movie? Would that be a mistake?
For now, I'm hoping Austin Butler takes the win.
Just got back from watching the Eternals and loved it! It’s not crazy good but it is really good. I really wasn’t expecting to like it as much as I did given the mixed reviews. This definitely isn’t your typical superhero flick and contains more than one twist and turn that will get you thinking. Oh yeah there are two post credit scenes so don’t leave!
Saw Eternals on Friday. I liked it overall, but it dragged a bit at times. I think the sheer size of the cast was kind of cumbersome, though the quality of the individual performances was top notch (in most cases). I'd maybe give it 6.5 or 7 out of 10.
The Eternals is my favourite Marvel movie. Just finished, quite beautiful. This doesn’t mean a lot, I am impressed by myself when I can finish a Marvel movie. But not only did I just finished it all the way through, I am rewatching it right now.
Reading some critics' take on Eternals and it seems like many of them are taking out their frustrations with MCU and corporation-produced films as a whole on this film, and using Zhao as an example despite some nice comments she received on her directing. However, the main takeaway I got overall is that this film is convoluted and despite its ambitions to be more than the usual superhero film, it doesn't fully develop its characters as much as it should with its large cast. Further, a movie this big probably works against Zhao's strengths. Justin Chang of the LA Times wrote this in this review: "You walk out in the depressing realization that you’ve just seen one of the more interesting movies Marvel will ever make, and hopefully the least interesting one Chloé Zhao will ever make."
“Dear Sarah Polley, we say this to you with deepest regrets: the Oscar you received was given by mistake – you must return it,” the opening line of the letter read. “We are giving you one more week to enjoy its presence in your home, but after that period of time you must mail it back to LA.”
I am so excited for it honestly. It looks so fun. Greta Gerwig writing and directing pretty much guaranteed I'd see it. I really love her adaptation of Little Women from 2019.I watched the Barbie trailer and it weirdly might get me to a theatre. I’m not a Barbie fan, my daughter doesn’t have any intentionally, but for some reason that movie looks so damn appealing
