re: General Movie Discussion Thread Part VIII

Watched The Meg. It's fine. Fairly well handled, but it's just...fine. I dunno. No significant issues, although nothing to be gaga about. Interesting that they structured it like a disaster film, only the disaster is a gigantic shark. Probably easier to work in the family tie-in motifs the director can't shy away from. There's about three Star Wars inspired shots within the first act, too. So, yeah. Meg was basically a Star Destroyer with teeth. Now that just sounds cooler than the film.

Sounds exactly like something Blumhouse will crap out in no time.

If they do that to Rope, I'm stuffing the creator in a box and having a party with all of you.

The people I'd already like to do that to for some of these recent excuses of films.

Haven't yet. I'll just wait for whenever it is released/the mood strikes.

Hey, Blackbeard!

Pugh's alright. You'll get a stiffer fight from me over others.

I hope Tarantino will get some scenes in. For Dakota Johnson, Cymbeline is the magic word. In A Bigger Splash, she does a handstand in the pool... but I'm not sure if it's stand-in feet.

Edit: Read Johnson, not Fanning. Not a fan of that Fanning. It'd be Robbie's feet that I'm solely interested in.

Emma Stone's get some air in The Favourite. It's a side shot, but they do look good. If Nicholas Hoult was a quality actor, they'd have found their way into his mouth.

Have you seen Tiptoes? It's pretty bad, even for a bad film. If you want something different from Oldman... Nobody's Baby. And he's one of the great one-time directors w/ Nil By Mouth (Winstone and Burke are amazing).

I'll take either Fanning sister, I am not too fussy

@eyebrowmorroco The Golden Globes are tomorrow night, do you fancy doing some predictions?

Drama

I like A Star Is Born to win that one although I wouldn't be shocked if the HFPA threw a curve ball and awarded Bohemian Rhapsody.

It's really strange how the two films with music in them ended up in the drama category

Musical or Comedy (An absurd category I know)

Green Book should have this one in the bag. I give a slim chance to Crazy Rich Asians since it is the HFPA after all/

Actress Drama

Poor Glenn Close must be fuming that she's being overshadowed by Lady Gaga this year. Rosamund Pike arguably deserves to win but she's got no chance unfortunately.

Actor Drama

I've just got this gut feeling that Rami Malek is going to win here. If not then it should be Bradley Cooper.

Actress Musical/Comdey

Olivia Colman is finally getting recognised in Hollywood, it's about damn time

Actor Musical/Comedy

This is a tough one Viggo Mortensen seemed to be running ahead of everyone then catastrophically dropped an N-bomb during a Q & A for Greenbook, has he now blown his chances in this sensitive climate? His only real competition here would be Chrisitan Bale IMO.

Supporting Actress

Regina King seems to be the clear shoe-in for this category. Rachel Weisz & Emma Stone should cancel themselves out going head to head.

Supporting Actor

Mahershala Ali seems to be another shoe-in although Richard E. Grant has been steadily gaining momentum in recent months.

Animated

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse looks like it might become the first comic book movie to truly be appreciated by awards committees. I am just happy that Phil Lord was able to quickly wash away the stink of being fired from Solo.

Foreign

Roma. From what I heard Netflix actually chose to put it up for this category instead of the big ones. I wonder if they'll do the same for the Oscars?

Director

I reckon Bradley Cooper gets the love here. Especially if he loses out to Malek for Best Actor. Maybe Peter Farrelly sneaks in there.

Don't even know how I did, but stumbled upon a Cole Trickle t-shirt. That's sure to be the highlight of the year.
