  1. I,,, don't think I can look at Octavia Spencer the same way again.
  2. I just watched 'The Switch ' with Jason Bateman and Jennifer Aniston and I'm having a hard time believing that this worked only 9 years ago. Seriously, there was not enough litigation going on in the end.

    Race and Ethnicity in the Movies

    It's not just Americans that do this. Remember the response when Rene Zellweger was first cast as Bridget Jones?

    2019 Awards Season

    I've heard for a long time now that the Globes mean absolutely nothing. Really. And reading what you quoted down below, you'd almost believe that the author was trying to slyly say that.

    Allergic or not that's sacrilege!
  6. Marvelous, just what we need in these times; messages about fearing the 'other'.
  7. Joy 2018 Joy 2015 It's a pretty big difference. And yet in the article feed at IMDB the 2015 pics are coming up for the 2018 one.

    Film Adaptations

    That's unfortunate becauseit can be done. My Girl was a huge hit, one that my dad almost didn't take me too see when I was 12 for pretty much the reasons you give. I think he was glad he relented despite the amount of crying on my part he had to witness.
  9. If that's the case could they not have just made MockingJay one frigging movie? A 200 page book in the juvenile section of my library did not warrant 2 movies that didn't develope any characters but the leads. So no, I will give Lionsgate any of my money in the future for more Hunger Games movies.

    Unpopular Opinions

    Yeah, the thing about the book is it makes its point rather quickly, but the film is still, , film length.

    Movies Based on Real People

    I just watched The Death of Stalin. Now I know that the bar would be set lower for a comedy for truth but it was kind of shocking to look these people and events up later and discover something mentioned in a joke turned out to be true, like the plane crash that killed most of The Soviets hockey team because Stalin's son Vasili was constantly drunk and making poor decisions.

    What Are We Currently Reading?

    Kindred was also turned into a graphic novel some years back. I checked it out at my local library.

    Race and Ethnicity in the Movies

    On Wed I watched the film Indian Horse at my local indie film series. It is based on the book by Richard Wagamese by the same name and it is a brutal depiction of the residential school system that Canada had in place to aggressively assimilate Indigenous children. While it was not near as expert a film as Moonlight (okay that might be a bit of an understatement ) I couldn't help comparing the two in terms of themes(where they are the same, where they differ), the character's journey and structure of the film. It is also told with 3 different actors playing the main character at different ages and they were all three the best parts of the film. The one playing the teenaged version of the Saul was Forrest Goodluck, who is also in The Miseducation of Cameron Post. While I can't wait to see him in that as well I also want to see him in a role where he is not institutionalized. Ajuawak Kapashesit and and Slade Peltier as the adult and child versions of Saul were also amazing. Eta: While the film has many producers and executive producers they were really trying to advertisethat Clint Eastwood was an Executive Producer.
