Film flames, episode episodes. Post lifetime is 1 year.

I definitely get the convenience factor of screeners. My thing is that is honestly not an ideal viewing situation for me. And I'm spoiled in NYC for good theatrical experiences.

Just unfortunate that the people who judge for award season are not always getting a chance to see them in the proper context or in high definition.

Im a fidelity priss. And I apologize for annoying others with my prissines .

Can You Ever Forgive Me? is superb. Easily one of the best of the year. Don't sleep on this one.

Glad you liked it. I love Melissa McCarthy and Richard E. Grant turned in a wonderful performance as well.

I love how they incorporate that footage at the end. Had me stuck in my seat.


Yea man, agreed. Solid film all around.

Black Panther is a great flick. It has a very decent shot at getting a best picture nomination at the oscars.

It's the highest grossing film of the year domestically. Incredible production design, and has alot to say.

also. The Golden Globes has a voting body of less than 100 people.

It's a solid movie, but not even sure it was the best Marvel movie last year (did Spiderman come out in 2017?)

I am a giant comic nerd, but I don't really believe in pure genre movies getting best picture nods in most cases . . . obviously not a hard and fast rule, but fits most of the time IMO. And yes, BP had something (heavy-handed) to say and the production design and score were fantastic and award-worthy. But putting aside what it had to say about colonization of Africa, the story of the movie was pretty much a carbon copy of all MCU origin movies: Mirror-reflection villain who at first defeats the hero and then is later defeated. See: Ant-Man/Yellowjacket, Dr. Strange/Mordo/Mads Mikkelson villain, Iron Man/Iron Monger and Iron Man II/Whiplash/Justin Hammer, Thor/Loki, Captain America/Red Skull, Cap/Winter Soldier to a lesser extent. It's a formula that works and has lots of variations but it's generally nothing groundbreaking. GOTG broke the mold, Spidey: Homecoming broke it, even Thor: The Dark World and IMIII did too (although neither of those are great movies by any means.)

I don't even think you can say that the direction was that different than the rest of the Marvel movies . . . Coogler's work on Creed was remarkable and distinguishable as a style, I don't think that can be said about BP (or any MCU movie other than GOTGs and maybe Winter Soldier)

I'm not knocking BP as a movie - after rewatching it a couple of times, I think it's a top five MCU movie; I just don't think it rises to a Best Picture film.

You can't 'put aside what it had to say about colonization of Africa' . That is at the core conflict of the film and the antagonist.

Spidey came out last year did nothing to break the mold. Other than setting most of the film not in New York. Thor the Dark World is trash.

Its probably not going to win best picture. but its going to get nominate because people the world over connect with it.

there is no harm in a film that connects with audiences getting a nomination.
