"Beirut"

Outstanding direction with a superb script, and Jon Hamm is really showing off his range. This stated off on R/T with critics ratings in the 70s but with an audience score in the teens. That had to be the result of a negative campaign since it's up in the 40s now with only 342 ratings. All of the ea...

Re: Best dialogue-driven film you've seen?

Cheers. will give them a look Get ready to binge. Couple of eps into TMMM - this is fun! Will try Gilmore Girls, too. Yeah, she's a helluva hoot, and the show never lets up. The Golden Globes actually got one right. The casts from both that and Goliath are both dripping with talent, outstanding cha...

Re: For which years have you seen every Best Picture Nominee?

An instructive thread would be where we list all our tier 10 movies (which is what Hollywood should do instead of just a set number) with asterisks by those that were nominated, along with a list of those nominated that weren't in our tier 10. But it would be labor intensive for doing more than a fe...

Re: Best dialogue-driven film you've seen?

Heaven forbid that someone should not be serious around here... Ironic humor is one thing, 2nd grade sarcasm is another. 8-) I was being deadly serious. The Day The Earth Caught Fire is an underseen classic, maybe because it's British, and Sweet Smell of Success is well-known for its dialogue which...

Rex Reed's Second Wind?

Rex Reed is old enough to have lived through the original Titanic, but he seems to have gotten a second wind lately. First, he righteously held up Mother as the worst movie of the century. And now he's correctly labeled the Oscar nominated flick, The Shape of Water , a "Loopy, Lunkheaded Load o...

Re: Movie Endings

I'm stoked to see Streets of Fire on there. I think it's an under-seen gem.even by cult standards. It might be a bit of a meandering, wandering thing through it's middle but the start and end are so great and it's unique style so spectacular I have to love it. Yeah, the acting's a little weak, but ...

Re: Best dialogue-driven film you've seen?

Back in the day, I convinced myself that Wild Strawberries and T he Seventh Seal were really good. (The SS did have one good irreverent scene about the Last Supper but it only lasted 10 seconds.) They were b&w and were made in a European language with subtitles, WTF? Then there was all the faux ...
