Heard good things about Kiss of the Spiderwoman and want to watch Amadeus from 84 one day but yeah. Not an inspiring selection

How did I just get that wrong. Think my brain has died.


#387

Don’t think I’ve seen any of the 2005 ones.

Downloaded Amadeus the other day but it’s very, very long and I’m concerned I might actually hate it.


#389

“Easily the strongest American film since Mystic River” is hilarious to me

  1. Saving private Ryan is the only film nominated that year that even exists

#397

The biggest Oscar farce

  • Crash beating Brokeback Mountain
  • Forrest Gump beating Pulp Fiction
  • Dances with Wolves beating Goodfellas
  • Driving Miss Daisy beating Born on the 4th of July, Field of Dreams AND My left foot

La la land moonlight debacle (at least the good film of the two won)


#399

fairly tepid take: crash (2004, the bad one) wasn’t as bad as everyone says. still bad like, but not Worst Film Ever bad

can’t actually remember anything about it

Just very heavy handed innit. If it hadn’t won the Oscar nobody would mention it as a particularly bad film. But for an Oscar winner it is particularly bad
