Doing a US list as well for some reason


#123

Saw shoplifters. Its really very good


#124

mubi’s way better than letterboxd


#125

they always do, and there are quite big differences/reasons why


#126

What’s it based on? I can’t see an explanation.


#127

One list is films that came out in the UK in 2018, one is films that came out in the US in 2018


#128

Okay, so the positions are different purely because, say, 3 more films came out in 2018 in the US better than Infinity War than did in the UK?


#129

Something like that! Basically the UK list has stuff like Lady Bird in whereas the US list has stuff like The Favourite and If Beale Street Could Talk etc


#130

Okay thanks. I guess it’s easier when you can directly compare the whole list.


#131

Bohemian Rhapsody nominated for BEST drama at the Golden Globes, even though there’s a musical and comedy category.

a musical can still be a drama

Also, is it even a musical?


#134

It’s a musical and it’s shite

Anyone know much about this stuff with Kevin Hart? I guess more specifically I’m seeing people drag him on Twitter because he refused to apologise about his grim hateful Tweets from ~8 years ago. He initially said something about how he’d apologised for them all ages ago, he’s a different person blah blah, and has now issued a weird non-apology anyway as well as stepping away from the Oscars.

But it doesn’t feel wildly separate from James Gunn and most of the noise I saw around Gunn was people claiming he’d changed and it was unfair to hold him accountable for stupid crap he said years ago.

Basically I’m asking we’re seeing a double standard here, because that’s what it feels like from this initial view? (And to be clear, regardless of who brought up Gunn’s old Tweets I don’t have a problem with Disney’s decision there, it seemed correct.)


#136

Hosting the Oscars is a rubbish job anyway, just means having to trudge through four hours of lame gags.


#137

Seems a little rough on Kevin Hart. Not saying he should just get a pass, but taking someone from an extremely chaotic background and expecting their views to be as enlightened as yours is a touch unfair IMO. But on the other hand, it seems like he’s been a touch stubborn about it.


#138

Enjoyed Dogman. Early digital release on the Curzon app/website.


#139

The Wanderers is really great, quite unheralded


#140

I’d have been a lot more sympathetic to him if in his apology he had actually apologised. His tweets seem a bit different to James Gunn’s, in that Gunn’s seemed like poor taste jokes whereas Hart’s seem to be just outright homophobic
