I hate judging something before its release, but my God this doesn’t look good.
I won’t see it, nor have I ever felt to need to see this film before or after the 0% on Rotten Tomatoes.
All Oscar Predictions are updated!
We are starting to get some clarity, but there are still many films that need to be seen or, hell, even finished.
For now, here’s what sounds good to us:
Our ranking system is based on our Oscar Tiers page, which is based on the rankings of “Award blogs” throughout the web.
A Star is Born
If Beale Street Could Talk
It’s fascinating to me how writers can make this work and the philosophy of comedy that petains to it.
In dramas we have anti-heroes: Our Walter Whites, Tony Sopranos etc.
What makes us love these shows? What makes us want to watch these despicable characters go through trials and tribulations? And when they succeed, what makes us happy for them?
This is frustrating.
I get it. We live in a world where big-budget films are only created if there is concrete data they will make profit.
To Disney executive the data clearly states “Put an Avenger in it or put “Star Wars” in the title and it will profit.”
I’ve ranted time and time again about the lack of creativity currently in the Marvel and “Star Wars” universes. So I’ll spare “ranting” and come down to their level.
Mary Queen of Scots
Can You Ever Forgive Me?
Old Man and the Gun
“An R-rated movie from the Jim Henson company!? I’m in!”
That was me a few years ago when “The Happytime Murders” was announced. I love The Muppets and all the work the Jim Henson Company has done.
This… does not look good.
There’s been a trend lately that I hope dies: Production companies determine their MPAA rating before pre-production in order to stir up hype.
However, the script and resulting film should determine its rating. Articles talk about Tarantino’s “R-rated Star Trek,” yet it hasn’t been written.
The story should dictate the MPAA rating and this trend is a blatant example of studios having too much control in the creative process.
What a Girl Wants
The Wedding Planner
Crazy Stupid Love
The Prince & Me
Maid in Manhattan
Ava DuVernay’s “Selma” had a completely botched Oscar campaign. With a late, limited release date accompanied by poor advertising the film only managed to receive 2 Oscar nominations – Best Picture and Original Song.
Even though it’d win the ladder, the lack of nominations for it and “Beasts of No Nation” contributed to the “OscarsSoWhite” backlash when all four acting categories failed to nominate a person of color.
