    I thought the Power of the Dog was meh (I find Cumberbatch annoying most times) but rewatched and enjoyed it.

    Not surprised given it's not exactly the Academy's type of movie, but I loved Pig and held out some hope it would get a couple noms.

    Dunno who you knock out in the Best Actress category for her, but thought Alana Haim was excellent in Licorice Pizza.

    Did Jonah Hill get a nom? He’s the only thing about Don’t Look Up that deserves that kind of credit.

    also, suicide squad was better than Dune and DLU

    That’s a bad opinion and you should feel bad about it.
    Also, we know you’re an emo little bitch, so you’d absolutely enjoy CODA.

    Nightmare Alley is on HBO max and I thought it was pretty good.

    Dune and the Last Duel were two of best cinematic experiences I've had. Now this might be because we didn't get to go to movie theaters for bit and I'm a Dune guy, but King Richard over The Last Duel? I know the Williams sisters succeed in life. I don't know how this duel is going to work out.

    I liked Licorice Pizza but it would have been much better with a plot that didn't constantly jump from one thing to another. It was like I was watching a few random episodes of a good TV show thrown together.

    would be much less embarrassing to accept the fact they are a niche program now (just like everything else that isnt the national football league)

    but congrats on drawing zero extra viewers with an extended encanto music montage that the most interested parties will just watch on twitter or youtube like they always would have

    I just finished CODA. Holy shit, what a film.

    I haven't enjoyed a movie that much in a really long time. That should win Best Picture and it's an absolute farce that Emilia Jones isn't nominated for Best Actress.

    Update: saw it and it’s by far the best film I saw from 2021, it won’t win but it should. At this point I’m just hoping Power of the Dog doesn’t win the major categories, although it looks like Campion is a lock for Director
