    My biggest regret was not seeing Little Women before publishing my last post. What a great film that was! It’s obviously a story we’ve seen many times before, but it reminded me how much of storytelling is getting together characters that we like and want to watch, and letting us watch them.Report

    I just want to say, between you and Rufus, I am finally getting good film reviews. Reviews that make me actually want to see fims. Not much more I can ask for.Report

    My thought on Parasite is why is it getting more attention than Kore-eda Hirokazu’s Shoplifters which also covers down and outs doing what they must to survive on the edges of society.Report

    In the days of my yute, I saw a *LOT* of movies. Many in the theater, even. I saw Sir Ian McKellen in Richard III (1995) before he was in X-Men (2000). So, like, the 1996 Oscars were big to me because I saw almost *ALL* of the big award flicks in the theater. (Exceptions: Sense and Sensibility and Georgia).

    I was able to talk about why Babe was better than Braveheart. Why Dead Man Walking’s direction was better than Leaving Las Vegas. Why Mira Sorvino deserved her Best Supporting but Kevin Spacey didn’t deserve his.

    And I look at this list and say “I saw The Irishman.”

    I’m old. That’s the point of the story.Report

    I mostly agree with this list, even if I’d shuffle the places of a couple of things here and there. I have to say I’m surprised to see The Irishman getting so much critical love: I enjoy Martin Scorsese as much as the next guy, but I thought The Irishman was a bloated snoozefest full of incredibly distracting CGI. I mean, the scene where deNiro “kicks” that guy was just embarrassing to watch.Report

      I did find the CGI a bit distracting in “The Irishman.” The brief WWII flashback was especially bothersome. But I ultimately swung with the so-so effects, because I appreciated so much else about the film.

      Thanks for reading!Report
