Loved it. Great performances, and love it when filmmakers go big and swing for the fences!"-Joseph

I hated this movie, the first arc is just torture porn. Also, the movie is a disservice to midwifery“-Taurus

International Oscar Race Pt 1: The Contenders List and where to see them

听着奥斯卡球迷afic和国际电影ioniados. We'd been holding off on this three part deep dive into the list of titles vying forBest International Feature Filmuntil the Academy's announcement. Sadly we hear through the grapevine that they're not actually making this list "official" until very late in January. In other words, less than two weeks after they announce the 90 plus titles, they'll be cutting most of them when the finalist list of ten is announced on February 9th. This is no way to treat the movies, giving them such a tiny window of "official" attention. So we're sharing the list of 93 titles (a record) now and doing our deep dive now... with the caveat that one or two titles might change in late January when the Academy makes this official. If things do change we'll republish the list and the articles then. If they don't, we can just link back.

NOTES ON THIS LIST: For more details on the films like genre, plot, running time, directors, please see the corresponding Oscar charts linked below. If we've reviewed or written about the movie itself or the country's Oscar history, it's linked below. If the title has a * by it, that means it's got an arguably high profile going into the screenings / voting period (though that's no guarantee of a nomination) by way of either its filmmaking team, noisy campaign, media coverage, or festival heat...

First annual (?) "Super" Awards

通过Nathaniel R


We're still trying to wrap our heads around the absolutely bizarre decision by the executives of the Critics Choice Association to launch a genre-specific awards show (think the土星奖在各种各样的媒体,而只从头部特写than the fans) in the very year where most of those kinds of movies didn't actually open and in which none of the big stars would be able to actually attend. It's a head scratcher in so many ways though happily two good movies (Palm SpringsandSoul)带领最多的奖品。

Here are the winners (no, we did not vote)...

一系列Christopher James调查电影中的“同性恋最好的朋友”拖信。

At 13 minutes into the movie, we meet Duncan (Pete Davidson). Very quickly after, we wish we hadn't met him.

I can admit this. Many of my choices for Gay Best Friend have been examples that I’ve loved. In the 90s and 00s, this was often one of the few ways we would see positive gay representation on the screen. Still, this trope can be negative when it leans on broad characterizations, the gay best friend as an empty accessory.

Netflix’sSet It Up(2018)以某种方式是新鲜空气的呼吸。戏剧释放被保留为超级英雄电影或更多“电影”声望票价。浪漫喜剧类型正在被爆发,只能在Netflix上找到它的家。Set It Up所有的家庭都有Pillow Talk与现代光泽的老式浪漫喜剧How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days。哈珀(Zoey Deutsch)和查理(Glen Powell)是过度劳累的助手,他将各自的老大彼此联系(Taye Diggs和Lucy Lui),所以他们可以拥有更多的工作生活平衡。火花在老板和助手之间飞翔。

Unfortunately, it features a “gay best friend” character that embodies everything that’s wrong with the stereotype and threatens to derail a perfectly fun movie...

How Had I Never Seen... "Monsoon Wedding"?

Cate is camp and crazy-good in "The Man Who Cried"

通过Nathaniel R

我很高兴分享我在Murtada的有趣播客中回来了第二次出现“星期天与cate.“他正在调查Cate Blanchett的整个职业生涯(不是按时间顺序)与各种客人。本周的话题是奇怪的莎莉陶器失火The Man Who Cried(2001年),关于跳舞俄罗斯人,唱犹太人,在巴黎的歌剧意大利人的戏剧戏剧。我要求这个是因为当电影在剧院时,我记得绝对被一个特写镜头被一个特写镜头。但这部电影变得如此完全被遗忘(甚至是我),我几乎无法记住任何背景。电影明星约翰尼德普和克里斯蒂娜里加(两者都在蒂姆伯顿的同事Sleepy Hollow)将永久放在好莱坞时间非常具体的地方。给我们听!

7 random things that happened on this day, January 10th, in showbiz history

1927Fritz Lang的科幻经典Metropolis在柏林有世界首映。它将成为传奇和充分理由......但是,由于过度曝光,我们厌倦了多年的厌倦了(有这么多沉默的薄膜,但似乎MetropolisandBirth of a Nationare the only ones the world knows).Our favourite, of infinite progeny and homages, is still Madonna's "Express Yourself" video from 1989

1936Silent film superstars Mary Pickford (44) and Douglas Fairbanks (53), who invented the "Hollywood Power Couple" finalize their divorce after 15 years of marriage (though they'd be separated for three years already)...
