  1. I feel your pain. I hate how Russians are being portrayed in Hollywood, by people who don't even speak a lick of Russian... and i'm not even Russian lol they use my country when they need someone who speaks Russian but comes from a country few heard of just to appear worldly. BUT did you really expect a true-to-life portrayal of Texas from Ryan-king-of-camp-Murphy? Buck and Eddie had 10000x more chemistry than two gay kids here... Rob Lowe is that aging pretty that ages very weirdly. but I like that they are using it as a gag joke and running with it. self-irony looks good on anyone.
  2. Hulu suggested Musketeers and I then I went on IMDB to see where else I can see Tom Burke. So the yellow brick road took me to War and Peace. Never read it (even though it was a school program reading) but wrote a composition on it... somehow lol we were pretty resourceful LOL what I still can't find an answer to is was it Tom Burke singing or was it dubbed? it sounded perfect. I mean his Russian in the song. The duet later was adorable but the Russian was cringy. When Dolokhov was singing my first reaction was that Burke is "lypsincing". only info I found was Guardian ripping the show a new one for sudden Russian singing from characters. if Lily James wasn't "dubbed" why would Tom Burke be, right? But if it is him... damn that man is more talented than I thought.
  3. at least now it's available for pre-order https://www.bestbuy.com/site/jojo-rabbit-includes-digital-copy-blu-ray-2019/6395813.p?skuId=6395813&ref=212&loc=1&ref=212&loc=1&ds_rl=1266837&gclid=Cj0KCQiAmZDxBRDIARIsABnkbYRDaE-SnXzyrvs-Ci8yXDp65I287gasbhqUGaE4yYpXhTdbN_LYBqwaAkAREALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds
  4. I think when it comes to oscars the likeliest category is script. And if everything is right with the world Taika SHOULD win it. This movie lives and dies by the masterful script and directorial work. 99 times out of a 100 a movie with such a premise is a disaster. Taika created a masterpiece. As good as other nominees are, and as large of a part a screenplay usually plays in a movie, here it’s the reason Jojo Rabbit is that good and getting all those nominations. ETA. also from what I’ve understood based on interviews, even though it’s based on a book it’s more accurate to say it’s inspired by a book. Taika took a situation described in a dark grim story and made something very different in tone and style.
  5. My top 3 is this, 1917, and Parasite. my heart belongs to this movie though. I keep checking the DVD release date and it keeps being pushed. It’s back in the theaters for the pre-Oscar run. Might need to get my fix for more captain K and go see it. For the 6th time. not sorry. Lol
  6. I've mentioned that in another thread. David Cook Darren Chris LOOOOOOONG shot, never gonna happen, but a girl can dream: Julie Andrews
  7. that was intense. Finally I got a long awaited good cry that was denied to me by the cinema for some time. The one shot approach and not knowing what's in the shadows or behind the corner... there was a lot of white knuckling in the two hours. The tension made all the emotions come out of my eyes. Cinematography was beyond beautiful. It was also funny how in some scenes (like when they were going along the edge of water in a hole. we just saw there were no rails there and the camera is seamlessly gliding over water) it was kinda like oh now Deakins is just showing off! For me now it's a 3 horse race. My heart still belongs to Taika. Then there's Parasite and this. Pulling for those in the Oscars. I was flinching with the rocks and whirlpools on his way. There was a lot of jumping and flinching due to the way this was filmed. Sometimes you don't need 3D to be fully immersed in the movie. I was also seating very close. when he was getting out of the river after running through the city and then fighting the current the following happened in the theater man next to me: achooo! me (jumping): SHIT! man: sorry ppl aroud us:😂🤣
  8. yeah, IRL I wouldn't root for that kind of relationship. but it's a TV show. I can suspend some disbelief if it's worth my while. Doesn't hurt that those two actors have insane chemistry. And both characters need a "win" in personal life too. Am I shallow to want this? yes. is it a trainwreck IRL? sure. but, damit show, give me Claire and Melendez romance! lol I'm ok with it being a slow burn.
  9. Too strong of a year in terms of movies and acting. IMO if Taron were going against Malek, Taron would have won... but last year was... last year... bummer, I really wanted at least a nom for him. not too surprised, unfortunately. Costumes is a more surprising snub though...
  10. Dracula was a hoot. I chuckled when he threw nun's head to pick his next victim. I liked that they tried to go modern times, didn't expect that, the show got me. Liked that they tried to summarize all the fears and myths into one theory. but BOY was that theory stupid and grasping at straws... so he is afraid of death... ok cross - fine i give you that. but wtf does sun have to do with it or being invited... what does that have to do with fear of death? such a major letdown
  11. My mind immediately went to Out by Natsuo Kirino

    S03.E05: Coup

    BJR for me was such a cartoony bad guy ( no fault of Tobias, it’s how he was written) with absolutely no redeeming qualities or reasons for being the absolute worst human being ever other than just to be the contrast of a “good boy Jamie” that he never really seemed real and that scary. I am forever #teamFrank though lol so had absolutely no reservations about the “new” Phillip. In terms of “quality as a human being” Phillip is a step down from Frank...

    S03.E05: Coup

    #teamFrank lol I saw that last scene as both "marking territory" and expression of affection. Phillip was jealous (the nuances in Tobias' facial expressions are just amazing. who needs a monologue!). It was actually fun to watch a ladies' man being threatened by a "nice boy" lol He went in for that kiss as a mature adult's version of a tantrum. Subdued anger and affection in one. Yes it was him kissing his wife to assert his position, but it was also to express and "remind her" that he does love and care for her. I'm still amazed at the casting of Menzies. When i saw photos of him in make up next to Phillip of those times, i though, i guess, it's close-ish... I was down for him as Phillip though cause I adore him. Bu that grin when he was leaving her office, with his face half obscured by shadow, i swear, for a split second i thought Prince William is gonna emerge into a fully lit part of the scene.
  14. she also looks like Tobias could have fathered her. Spot on casting indeed.
  15. this was the biggest most unpleasant surprise. that song is so cringe. i'm not gonna be speechless i'm not gonna not speak I won't be silent I will be non silent gaaaaah... it's one thing that this song exists, but to be nominated as one of the best songs...
  16. I could live with Aziraphale & Crowley spin off... 🤣
  17. compared to who won that season Daughtry is effing god lol but yeah, not a huge fan of a vibrato. and that's why I'm almost offended on behalf of Darren Chris who has an amazing voice and control over it. He can do vibrato, but it's not a 100% sound like with Daughtry. I'd love to see Darren on this show... probably the most out of all Glee people (I guess Morrison too, but are they cool enough for him?) and if we go AI alums, I need me some Cook... a theater nerd in him would embrace this show to no end.
  18. idk Craig Bond movies alternate between awesome and meh. last one was meh... so I'm there for this one. also Rami Malek as a villain... I'm intrigued.
  19. Yeah Don Johnson ad Nash Bridges had a good comedic timing. So that didn’t surprise me. i could have done without “current events”. The setting and the tone were pretty timeless. Technology used here and there puts it into “our times” but doesn’t spoil it. The zeitgeist jokes do.
  20. that was just pure fun! was it perfect? no, it had it's problems, but i didn't care. Why didn't they let Craig use his British accent? too cliche? Daniel Craig in a suit is too much of an image with specific sound... maybe if he were wearing overalls and plaid shirt lol
  21. there are multiple theories floating there. from - "Captain K was in the resistance with Rosie and "Operation Screw Up" was deliberate screw up" to just -"he was disillusioned as a wounded gay officer and saw gestapo grab Rosie on the street and worried about the kid, didn't care about the cause that much any more and decided to help" and anything in between, about his involvement in the resistance and just how Nazi he was. Edit: he definitely knew that Rosie was either dead or about to be. When leaving Jojo's home he told him to stay home. He might have seen the hung people already, or knew that they will be hung very quickly. Stephen Merchant's character after seeing Jews hang like bats said smth like "that reminds me, we need to get back, we left that guy hanging there".
  22. who do we have to kill in order for Criterion to pick up Jojo rabbit for production?
  23. I might or might not be seeing it for the 4th time this week end lol last time i saw a movie at the theater more than once was the original Pirates of teh Caribbean. last time i was so completely in love with a movie was.... never. i almost pre-ordered the digital version of it since it's available. but remembering Stephen Merchant's interview about how his raison d'être was to make Sam Rockwell ruin a take so he was ad libbing to make him laugh, I decided i need a physical DVD with lots of extras lol
  24. it was evident to me from the trailer that he was a figment of her imagination, but i thought it was a good ol' "ghost of Christmas past/present/future" story. Which i guess it kinda was. the first half of the movie was a very weak 2/5 for me. It's obvious to me now, that they were stalling for the *gasp* reveal! parts leading up to an dafter reveal were good though. idk if it was worth it, but i got what i came for: good sad/happy cry.
  25. I guess I fell for bait'n'switch. I wanted more Fred Rogers. Rhys was good, but Hanks was amazing. I teared up every time I watched the trailer, so I wanted to be a blubbering mess after the movie. I wasn't. I cried twice: subway scene and 1-minute-scene. OMG did Hanks nail it! the breaking down the 4th wall with that stare... and that's my problem with a movie... every time Hanks as Rogers appeared on my screen my eyes became misty, but they didn't let him hold the scene for long enough for me to go full on emotional, like in that 1 minute scene. Every actor in this movie fell victim to Hanks...
