    Just my personal opinion, but I think Once Upon a Time in Hollywood was the best of the nominees. Until Parasite got a lot of traction in other awards, I really thought it would run away with it because it has all of the factors that the Academy usually loves.

    That said, Parasite is fantastic. It's absolutely a story for the current times and what it has to say about classism can easily apply to different cultures across the globe. Plus it's so cool that a movie by and for anyone else but old white guys gets this recognition. I'm really happy it won.

     

    any of the other old white guy films that were up for noms were worthy of being there and I would have been fine with any of them winning, honestly.

    1917 or The Irishman, sure. Joker or Ford v Ferrari? Nope.
    Really, I was just referencing your old white guy comment and how its a weak argument.

    I’m happy that Parasite won. It’s well deserved and that director really brought a kind of joy to winning his multiple Oscars that I haven’t seen in a long time. But any of the other ‘old white guy films’ that were up for noms were worthy of being there and I would have been fine with any of them winning, honestly.

     

     

    I just want to point out Marriage Story for a moment. I can only think of one other film where I was so in awe of a film, deemed it worthy of its praises, was so emotionally attached to it, yet have no desire to ever watching it again because of how real, raw and emotional it is. That was Requiem of a Dream. Marriage Story is right up there next to it. Movie was simply amazing. But I’ll never watch it again. Adam Driver and ScarJo gave genuine and sometimes disturbing, yet HONEST performances in this movie. But I was a wreck and in tears for half of the movie. My anxiety was almost unbearable at times and by the end of it, I was exhausted and just wanted to crash and go to sleep.

  3. Im 36 years old. Im pro life. It isnt an old people thing. Theres many people my age that are pro life.

     

    Tank, Im not ignoring you, I just really hate Lyceum and Im actually kicking myself in the ass for even posting anything. But give me tonight and Ill come up with something. Not anything as thoughtful as Kurgan, but Ill at least try and explain my side of things, as someone who generally leans conservative.

  4. Jesus Christ. Look, as a Trump supporter, I know he does some stupid shit. Watching what Pelosi did the other night, that was some stupid shit, on the same level as SOME of the same stupid shit Trump has done. If you cant admit that, then theres no point in arguing with you.

  5. I get so sick of the shit. My son is 9 now, and Ive been a single dad with 50/50 custody for 8 of those years. I know how to be a mom. I know how to be a dad. I changed literally thousands of his diapers. Been a shoulder to cry on 100 times. Im a soccer mom. A karate mom. i shuffle him to school weekly and pick him up. I know how to cook him breakfast, lunch and dinner. And not set fire to the kitchen! I can put clothes on him. And they match!!! I can style his hair and it looks good!

     

    And Im taking nothing away from his mom. She is also a dad. And a mom, and does all of these things I do. Its called being ****ing parents. Get tired of the dead beat dad bullshit. Get tired of the dads are too stupid to figure it out bullshit.

  6. Squid thing was fuuuuuucked up. But I rode with it. I love the quirkiness of the show. Its dark, deep, has a lot of serious undertones. And then it has squids, blue dick, and cheesy gay superhero porn. I dig it.

  7. Does this show do any recaps of the comic for people who haven't read it? Trying to decide if I should watch this solo or try to get my wife into it, and there's no way I can convince her to read it. She saw the Snyder movie, at least.

     

     

    As someone who hasn’t read the comics, only the 2009 movie, the show had me hooked by episode 2. Definitely some WTF moments, but in a good way. I had a lot of fun watching this show. Each show felt like it’s own little story. Me liking it as much as I did probably helped by the fact I watched the 9 shows in 2 days, we had a lot of snow and not much to do. I think watching the shows in bulk made it easier for me to kind of figure out what was going on.

     

    Also, reading these comments, around episode 5 or 6 I did have a thought that Cal was actually Dr Manhattan. The only reason why is because basically every character in the show had an important role up to that point and I noticed Cal was in a lot of scenes just to be in them and I knew there was something more to him.

  8. It was sarcasm more than anything. it's a scorsese film. i expected it. i remember before even sitting down and watching it, thinking 'a 3.5 hour long movie? wonder what kind of bs ending i'm going to get from scorsese this time?'

    I generally enjoy his films. Gangs of New York is probably my favorite Scorsese flick. Hugo is one of me and my son's go to movies we watch around christmas time. (just feels like a christmas movie) But i can also not like everything he does. Great film, Pesci deserves an Oscar nom.

  9. I actually really liked the movie. The only issue I really noticed with the de-aging effects, were when Robert and Pesci first met and they were working on the truck. Robert looked a little off. Great movie, a little sick to my stomach that movie cost $250mil, and I hope Pesci and DeNiro get some awards recognition because of it.

     

    I also really enjoyed Ray Romano. Wish there was more of him in there. The comedian guy (dont remember his name) that played the gangster Joey was pretty great too.

  10. i viewed the beginning of chapter 4 differently. yeah, i saw it coming as soon as i viewed it, but i feel like that's what Favreau was going for. Kind of like with Breaking Bad, they actually show you the climax of the show within the first 2 minutes of the show, but then it cuts to title screen and then the story of what/how begins. That, and i think the majority of 30-40min tv shows have a level of predictability. At least in my experience. sure there's some surprises along the way, but you're not going to get that wtf moment until mid season and/or season finale. It's like anytime Frasier went on a date, you knew it was going to end with him being single.

    I dunno, i'm just a casual star wars fan. so far, i really enjoy the series. it's definitely something completely different from what they've done in the movies. this show doesn't take itself too seriously and i really like that.

  11. i have it for the first year. it was crazy not to do that deal. $60 for a year i believe? after that, who knows. with hulu and netflix, i always subscribe/unsubscribe from them. I'm currently unsub'd from netflix after i watched el camino, and probably won't resub again until Ozark season 3 comes out, which i assume is probably only a few months away.

  12. I have no complaints. I was left satisfied. They didn't try anything cute and complex. they stuck with what they knew, didn't make anything complicated and just focused on Jesse at hand and made sure he had his proper send off. So happy with this movie.

    The Jesse and Todd story part of the movie was my favorite. so well done, and we got to see kind of the eccentric part of Todd that I always kind of wondered about in the series.

    They did plenty of fan service in the movie, but it all felt natural, not forced, and these particular scenes actually pushed the film forward. Just so good. So well done. With as perfect of an ending that Breaking Bad had, Vince and crew did an amazing job adding to the Breaking Bad legacy with El Camino.

  13. A car pulls up, who can it be?

    A fresh El Camino rolled, Kilo G.

    He rolled down his window and he started to say,

    "It's all about makin' that GTA."

     

     

     

     

    With that said, I have no idea what you guys are talking about.

    Unpopular opinion, I prefer the Dynamite Hack version fight me.

  14. Yeah I know! I’m sure you know all of this Me Hollywood but from my understanding, Vince Gilligan really wanted to leverage Netflix for this movie, as a debt of gratitude for Netflix picking up the the first couple seasons of Breaking Bad and helping it get noticed when it was on the verge of being cancelled and not going past season 2 or 3.

     

    I was one of those people who saw it on Netflix one day and giving it a shot. And getting hooked.

  15. Anyone excited for this? I havent watch Breaking Bad since the series finale 6 years ago. Spent the last month going through the series again to prep for El Camino. Forgot how great that show was. Anyways, pumped for El Camino, heres hoping they do it right.
