Re: Last Seen Movie - The Latest Movie You Have Seen; ratings

I thought that The Story of Temple Drake was the most famous pre-Code film aside from the notorious Letty Lynton that had never been released on home video. We may finally see that one after the copyright on the play it was ruled to have stolen from (Dishonored Lady) expires in 2025.

Re: Critic's Top Ten Films of 2019

Best Netflix Original Movies of 2019 - Variety (Peter Debruge) 1. “I Lost My Body” These days, Netflix’s strategy appears to be outspending the competition to enable ambitious auteur’s dream projects, like “Roma” and “The Irishman,” but the bigger budgets don’t necessarily make for better movies.

Hmmm. Is that about a temple they had built to honor Temple Drake? :P

I've seen her in lots of things. She's usually underutilized. The Big Chill was a rare exception.

Re: Three Scenarios for Best Actress

I barely remember Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman . I do remember Louise Lasser in the title role and Martin Mull being in it, but have no memory of Mary Kay Place even though she won an Emmy for it. It's probably something I watched a couple of times, but not faithfully. My strongest memory of Mary Kay ...

Re: R.I.P. Danny Aiello

I thought he had died something like ten years ago and was stunned last year when he turned up in a (very bad) new movie that was streaming one Amazon Prime. His son, Danny Aiello Jr., a long-time stunt coordinator, died almost ten years ago on 5/1/2010 of pancreatic cancer. He was only 53. Another...

Re: Possible Consolidation of the Two Sound Categories

The Bohemian Rhapsody victory in Sound Editing made clear that distinction has been lost. Maybe uncertainty or plain ignorance among voters regarding the categories differences was a key factor for the BR victory... up to the ceremony, I was in disbelief about the film’s merits for the Sound Editin...

Re: SAG Nominations

Bad news for Little Women and The Two Popes . Bale and Egerton over De Niro and Banderas, let alone Pryce, are the kind of populist nods that might be expected from this group, but they could carry over to the Oscars. Ronan's omission is more of a shock. Popular though she and her film may be, I sti...

Re: The Golden Globe Award Nominees

It's good that AMPAS opened up their membership to a more diverse group, but that would have happened without Jada Pinkett-Smith and her fury over her husband Will not getting a nomination in a crowded field which created the OscarsSoWhite movement. More important than awards are the jobs that lead ...

Re: The Official Review Thread of 2019

I've expressed in the past my fear that the junk movie takeover of the film industry (superheroes, dumb comedies, horror) would eventually lead to a generation of critics who've never known anything else and would cause the elevation of genre pieces that would have been laughed off the screen in th...
