In the runup to the Oscars last weekend, I watched Green Book (via Fandango) and it was really good. It's a beautiful story and very well done. Best picture? Meh, hard to say. I realize that there are some controversies around it's making, particularly with the poor decision to omit Dr Shirley's family's input which compromised it's historical accuracy (the Bohemian Rhapsody people admitted theirs was a fairly loose historical re-creation, so the same should be said for Green Book) but it's still a very good movie.

We also saw The Favourite and it has to be one of my least favorite movies of all time. I usually love Emma Stone but even seeing one of her boobs couldn't remotely save this thing. I hate that Hollywood repeatedly makes pieces about past British royals with elaborate period costumes and terrible harpsichord music and believes it's some level of art. My god it's awful.

Not sure why everyone is so upset that Black Panther didn't win Best Picture. It was very good but I liked [b]Avengers: Infinity War[/b] a lot more.

The most recent picture of the year winner from the Oscars I’ve seen is Return of the King lol. I’m not much of a movie watcher, but the stuff I do watch is usually fairly popular but doesn’t win best film. I think that’s why fans feel the Oscars are out of touch in general. A movie like Infinity War generate as much if not more hype than any film in 2018, but films like that in the fantasy/sci-fi/superhero genre are never treated as anything more than escapism. Genres like that generally become disregarding regardless of film quality.

Which that actually makes the Return of the King win that much more surprising. But if that same exact movie had been made and it wasn’t based on a book written by a historic author, it wouldn’t have been voted best picture either imo.

I’m not saying movies like Infinity War or The Force Awakens were necessarily deserving of best picture, but there’s a big disconnect between what the public enjoys seeing and what the film critics vote for as well.

Speaking of Fury Road... glorious tweetvid of some of the action footage without CGI, and it's still glorious.

One of my favourite films of this century, perfect in every way.

----@ Micky I enjoyed Pet Semetary 2, even if it wasnt as good as the first. I wonder how well the Pet Semetary remake will be.

The Dirt, the movie based on the Motley Crue autobiography of the same name, is now out on Netflix. and it's pretty damn good. All the band members were producers on the movie and guided its development, so it's an accurate adaption of the book which documents the first half of the band's notoriously decadent career. There's lots of sex and drugs and rock and roll, and then there's a whole lot more sex and drugs, so the movie gives a pretty genuine picture of the highs and lows of the L.A. metal scene along Sunset Blvd in Hollywood during it's heyday in the 80's. You'll even catch a few glimpses of some other well known rock stars. The Dirt is the best band biography I've ever read, and this screen adaptation is entertaining and worth seeing for any rock fan. But be warned, from the opening scene on, it's definitely best to keep the kids in the other room for this one.

Caught Dragged Across Concrete last night, thoroughly enjoyed :)

Bone Tomahawk, Brawl on Cell Block 99, and now Dragged Across Concrete. S. Craig Zahler's on a roll.

Not sure if I’ve ever felt a bigger emotional high following a movie than what I feel after Endgame. What a stellar film.
