You know what I'm excited for this year?
I loved Cha Cha Real Smooth! Cooper Raiff's charisma is insane and Dakota was fantastic in it.
I don't think Cha Cha will go all the way like Coda but Cooper is so cute oh my god. That shaggy nerdiness is my happy place. I can't believe he's just 25.
Elvis was the first movie in years where I really felt like that's what paying for your cinema ticket and overpriced snacks is all about.
Austin Butler will at least get a nod come awards season.
Austin Butler could get a lot more than a nod.
I think most of these listed are reasonable.
Oscar nominee Pedro Pascal really would fit in with my dreams. He really does dominate in The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, but I guess it's a long shot even so?
No, it's true. (Still enjoyed it though.)
Austin Butler is great but the performance is so smothered by everything else going on, particularly the crimes against humanity being committed by Tom Hanks. I love Baz, Moulin Rouge! is one of my favourite films ever, but outside of Austin Elvis really didn’t hit for me.
Feel like shit just want a U.K. release date for Crimes of the Future.
I hope this is as great as it looks.
Just saw Elvis...I loved it idc idc. It's not a perfect movie, but Austin Butler is incredible in it. His acting and moves are spot on. I was extremely emotional by the end.
Has anyone seen Official Competition with Penelope Cruz? I loved it.
It’s Spotlight but for the MeToo movement and I want it now.
Elvis was pure entertainment. Was it perfect? No, but I really hope it can get a popcorn slot in the Best Picture race if it continues to do well at the box office. If Bohemian Rhapsody can, and people were up in arms over House of Gucci missing out on such a slot, Elvis certainly deserves it.
Austin Butler should be an absolute shoe-in for embodying such a well known person without ever it feeling like mimicry or parody (unlike a certain Mr. Malek).
I just don’t see it. What’s the story we don’t know? Has there been enough time since the story for this to feel relevant anew, or is it just the final stop on a predictable trajectory for every major news story? The audience who will even bother watching has probably listened to podcasts with Jodi and Megan, podcasts about them, and read the stories, so who is this for?
I’m not deliberately picking on this movie, as there are a lot of movies my questions could be applied to, but it seems especially pertinent here.
Todd Field bringing a new film to Venice… I just-
Not going to have a Spielberg/Scorsese clash.
