    The Irishman - I loved EVERY. THING. ABOUT. IT.
    It will win Best Picture.
    I heard you paint houses.


    I'm going to see Ford V Ferrari sometime over the weekend. Really excited for that one.
    Parasite is playing at Baxter but I think I'll wait til it's at the Village 8. Because every movie Baxter gets will always go to the dollar movies (owned by the same group) before it's no longer playing anywhere else.
    Save 15 bucks.

    But I had a nightmare after watching it
    Finally got around to seeing this last night and I'm not spoilering anything. After spending the night thinking about it (insomnia gives you time for that), I found it more disturbing.

    The explanation toward the end was something to roll around in the brain pan. The Tethered are copying the movements and lives of their counter parts without hope of ever having a life like the Untethered has. An entire life without hope will make you feel soulless. It will drive you to madness and desperation.

    Adelaide didn't lose her memory, she suppressed it. Of course she has trouble talking sometimes. She was very quick to revert to her previous life and even sounded like a Tethered One at the end.

    Red's life stopped in 1986. Being sent underground disrupted what little order there was. She nearly forgot how to speak. She lost all her privilege which seemed to be her primary drive for revenge.

    Questions though: How did Red communicate with everyone? How did she get her message to spread so far? Who are "They" that created The Tethered? Did the uprising happen worldwide? How much does her son understand? Now that Adelaide has her memory back, what will she do with that information?

    I did like the movie and now that I've had time to think about it, I think I like it more.
    And the ghosts that we knew will flicker from view
    And we'll live a long life

    The Farewell - Really sad and hilarious film. Got it from RedBox. It has a 99% Fresh rating at Rotten Tomatoes. Wow.
    I imagine a great deal of the success of this film is the originality or specificity of the subject matter. I've never heard of this custom before and like Billi's reaction at the end.. I'm not sure what side I'd be on. I thought it do be completely relatable, however, as how a family could or would respond to a crisis or something else like this.

    I really hope this movie goes far at the Awards Season that's about the start. It deserves a lot of recognition in many categories.
    I seem hyper-in-love with a lot of the new films. I am. But that 99% RT ... that might be a bit more than it deserves. Maybe not.

    Ford V Ferrari For me, someone who loves collecting sporty things and also loves competition.. especially true stories like this. It was a pretty nice film.
    First hour seemed really boring. That's a lot of setup. A lot of cars that aren't moving as fast as the mouths around them.
    But the second half was really good. Heart-racing stuff there.

    Just a little movie news in regards to Oscar race
    1917 screened four times for critics in Los Angeles and the early reviews are that it is the movie to beat for Best Picture. Many critics saying they didn't anticipate that going into the film.
    The movie is made to look like it's one continuous take. I can't wait for it to come out. Ahhhhhhh

    Marriage Story (Netflix) - Fine film. A lot going on all the time in the best of ways. Some of the best dialogue, probably the film with the most written word being considered for Best Picture - but it's all soooo good.

    This is a movie I imagine every jobbing actor would love. An actor's film.
    All the performances are knocked out of the park. I love Noah Baumback's style, I love his take on New York.. that whole aesthetic. This is his best work yet, imo. This movie could totally take Best Pic. If Greenbook can.. this one surely can.

    Once Upon a Time in Hollywood - Finally a new film that I'm not raving about.

    Did anyone on here actually like this movie?

    I mean, I understand from an "awards perspective" the why's - all the reasons a film like this would check everything Oscar voters are after... but this film is not this. It's an idea of what that film would be. It feels like Tarantino decided to make a movie that all of his other films reference. This must have been his favorite era in film. It's like a connect the dots game. He took a big chalkboard and wrote everything he wanted in a movie and then decided to connect the dots (add a plot) sometime later. It's an afterthought.

    I wouldn't have this movie anywhere near Best Picture. It doesn't even succeed on the technical parts of making a film, for me.

    I was so confused why it's a critical darling. And then I looked it up on Rotten Tomatoes and it's really not getting this tremendous response in the likes of Parasite, Ford v Ferrari, The Farewell, Marriage Story, and 1917.

    I loved it. I think it's among his best movies, like Pulp Fiction and Inglourious Basterds.

    Volta, we should discuss this film under spoiler protection. You'll love my aggressive defense of the ending.

    ETA: I think it's the second best film of the year.

    Just got in from seeing a 7pm showing of Parasite.
    I’m still processing it. Lol. Not sure where I’d even rank it.

    What a bizarre cinematic experience.

    Honey Boy - I really liked it. I think that nytimes review took the ending way too literally.
    I loved that Lucas Hedges, who looks nothing like Shia, was able to get his mannerisms, the cadence in which he walks and talks down. I suppose Shia isn’t the most difficult person to impersonate. He has that real intense vibe in the way he communicates that is kind of a trademark.

    Knives Out - Hated it.

    I know, Knives Out. Soon. I wanna tell Volta why he's wrong. But I just have to say one thing real quick.

    Lady Macbeth
    Midsommar


    Florence Pugh. Florence FUCKING Pugh.

    I've been discovering great young actors all decade, starting with Jennifer Lawrence in 2010. And now, in the last month of this decade...possibly the best yet? I dunno. And I don't know exactly what it is. She just has it.

    Lady Macbeth and Midsommar are two fine independent films whose main similarity is that they're both completely fucked up. In the best way. (I would be happy to discuss either fine film.) For films like these, you really need a strong lead to guide the audience through. William Oldroyd and Ari Aster could not have chosen better.

    Oh, and Pugh's first Marvel movie comes out next year. So she'll be a superstar very soon. Just a heads up.

    Midsommar was one of my favorites of the year and might make my Top 10 of the decade. And Florence is wonderful; she's part of why I'll go see Little Women despite no interest in past versions. And yes, I cannot wait for her in Black Widow!

    Star Wars: Rise of Skywalker - The ending totally had me sobbing. Such a beautiful conclusion of the "Skywalker Saga."
    Doesn't mean Star Wars is over like so many people keep saying. They're going to go on making stories in that world til' the end of time, I think.

    The Two Popes - NETFLIX - I wasn't prepared for just how much I would love this movie.

    Totally agree with you - and it made me cry as well.

    Uncut Gems - Half the time I didn't really understand what was going on. Why someone would let someone "test drive" expensive gemstones, etc. But I guess that is a realistic thing that happens in the world of million-dollar jewelry.

    Regardless, Adam Sandler delivers the dramatic performance of his life, for sure. And the movie really is fast paced and exciting. Get ready for a huge twist that you'll never see coming.

    Richard Jewell - Entertaining. I knew almost nothing about what really went down. But i've said the same for made for tv movies. There were plenty of those this year that were just better on every level. Still, I am glad his name is really being cleared. It wasn't Eastwood's best.. but I understand what stories Eastwood likes to tell and this was certainly on par.

    I've seen a lot of the films that are in the top 10 list or top 10 movies nominated in major awards shows like Critics Choice, GG's, and SAG. Here's how I'd rank them.. so far. My Ranking.. not anyone elses. It's amazing how some movies I really loved have fallen down my ranking simply due to time and other far greater films being released later.
    This is the last season we will have an "Awards Discussion," ever on Unforumzed.

    The Good
    1. JoJo Rabbit
    2. Marriage Story
    3. The Farewell
    4. Joker
    5. Honey Boy

    The Middle Road
    6. Parasite
    7. Uncut Gems
    8. The Two Popes
    9. Ford v Ferrari
    10. The Irishman
    11. Rocketman

    The Bad
    12. Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
    13. Hustlers
    14. Knives Out
    15. Richard Jewell

    The need to be seen
    Dolemite is My Name (I started watching it on Netflix and will have to get back to it)
    Bombshell
    Little Women
    (And probably my most anticipated watch) 1917

    This year so many films came out on DVD or were on Netflix before mid-December. Some are calling it the most accessible year as far as the big awards films ever.

    Of the movies that were in theater a great deal of them went to Village 8 in Louisville. Village 8 is one of the few "Dollar Cinemas" still left. It's actually $3 but discounted days were only $1. And the majority of the other movies were seen on discount Tuesdays where the movies are only $5. Both Baxter and Stonybrook offer discount days. Everything else, especially the movies I saw in New Albany for convenience were 16 bucks.

    After the Oscar Nominations are put out Stonybrook usually plays all of them at a discounted rate so people can see them before the ceremony. I like to get started as soon as possible. But I do look forward to seeing some again at Stonybrook once the nominations are out.

    I also love talking about them on here because this board isn't full of pop-ups, and I like the opinions of others on here, and I just really prefer message boards. Unforumzed stands as the last "good one" remaining.
