I just watched that trailer what is even happening

The premise is that Adam Driver's character is a bus driver (!) that's also a poet/writer, if I remember correctly.

it's a very abstract, quiet little film. i like it a lot but it can be a difficult watch if you don't know what you're getting into (something reserved and artsy)

see I got a reserved and artsy vibe at the beginning of the trailer and then as time went on it seemed like things were moving into a more supernatural area

like paterson was controlling paterson

My husband and I went to see Glass last week. I wanted to see it because I’ve loved James McAvoy ever since I saw him in Inside I’m Dancing. Plus I remember liking Split even if though I couldn’t really remember that much about it. Glass was meh for me for the most part though I’m feeling pretty dumb I didn’t know it was a super hero movie. Never saw the one with Bruce Willis.

The Favourite - I really liked it. Overhyped, for sure, but witty and fast - with some proper emotion underneath. Man, Olivia Coleman, Emma Stone and Rachel Weiss are terrific. As is Nicolas Hoult.

a star is born is fine
i'm surprised it got a best picture nom

to be fair all of the best picture noms are kinda lackluster

i haven't seen the green book or vice yet, but the favourite, blackkklansman, and roma i can all see as good noms

there are aspects of bohemian rhapsody's production that i hate to the point where i think it's nomination should be withdrawn
minus the bullsh-t i can see why it would be nominated

Re: Bohemian Rhapsody, the best picture award is a producers' award, so I don't think Bryan Singer would actually be credited with the win (if that helps).

vice is too heavyhanded for my tastes

dont get me wrong, i LOVE adam mckay and thought the big short was incredible but at a certain point (very early on) i had to check out of this movie because good god we get it.

i haven’t seen green book either

blackkklansman should win but the academy are cowards and will go with something safer

roma is at the top of my list and as soon as i finish watching legion season 2 and that jake gyllenhaal movie on netflix i will watch and report back

BlacKKKlansman is a really good movie that feels way too...optimistic and protective of the police. it feels very 'pro law enforcement' and it doesn't sit entirely right with me

Really? Even though the one policeman is a total racist sh*tbag?

7 months ago - Tuesday 2/5/19 - 5:03:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
yeah, I didn’t get that vibe at all
7 months ago - Tuesday 2/5/19 - 5:06:40 PM EST (GMT-5)
I mean, it's based on a true story and that story is that a black policeman infiltrated the KKK.

Some of the policeman are going to be portrayed as good guys as a given.

the One Racist Cop who is immediately arrested and has to face real consequences for his actions by the other Good Police?

Boots Riley laid out a lot more eloquently the issues i had

It's as if people don't understand what "based on a true story" means.

It's not a documentary; it's a dramatization *based* on a true story.
7 months ago - Tuesday 2/5/19 - 5:40:58 PM EST (GMT-5)
i mean he addresses that

his issue is that it dramatizes real life events to the effect of taking a problematic real-life figure and glorifying his actions to the point of making cops look like woke heroes

the bomb, Adam Driver's character being jewish, the cop being arrested
none of that stuff is true, and it's all used to make the police look better

i find that sort of troubling

(and i shouldn't need to say this to criticize this aspect of the film, but it is one of my favorite films of 2018. it's Very Good. but Lee's framing of the police is my least favorite angle of the film)
7 months ago - Tuesday 2/5/19 - 5:43:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
I have no thought that Spike Lee was trying to make the police "look better".

There are good and bad cops, just like there are good and bad _________ (fill in the blank with whatever you like).

It's a statement on racism, that's what the movie is. You can nitpick it all you want, but it makes you feel that and it's successful.
7 months ago - Tuesday 2/5/19 - 5:49:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
sure, but again, the entire framing of the movie is Police Good (made up plot of points of police stop Bad Police, police work with and empower Black Cop and his Black Power Feminist Girlfriend, Police employ Jewish and Black Cops who risk their lives to stop bombings)

which, in an era of Black Lives Matter and repeated stories of police brutality, feels....kind of icky

i'm not asking for this movie to say "f-ck cops" and "all cops are bastards"

but a more nuanced, gray area viewpoint of the police (and even Stallworth's actions) would have been a lot more compelling
7 months ago - Tuesday 2/5/19 - 6:09:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
I have to agree with a lot of those points, tbh. The choices on what they made up for dramatic effect were particularly very unexpected from Spike Lee.

I 100% believe that the Klan guys were at least as dumb as the movie portrayed them (partially because the cop it was based on has said they actually made them look *smarter* for the movie). But it was a pretty romanticized view of how cops and race intersected during that time (or even now, depending on where you are).
7 months ago - Tuesday 2/5/19 - 6:19:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think a lot of that does depend on who you are and who you're dealing with, absolutely.

The Klan are a bunch of idiots, undoubtedly. A friend of a friend back at home used to go around showing off his granddad's KKK membership card like it was some prize to be had.
