Re: Martin Scorsese's *new* movie on the life of Jesus

Yeah, Marty's a great filmmaker but I don't think he has a lot to say on this topic. Silence was good (not great), but most of that you can attribute to the sheer potency of the source material...and...

Re: Do you guys even bite at Oscar bait movies anymore?

I'm at the point where if something makes me think of the term "Oscar bait" I actually deprioritize it a little.

Re: Beatles biopics - Sam Mendes directing

Re: Shrink Time with Act III

I think it's just kind of a big ask right out of the gate, I guess. It's a pretty intimate thing to open with for anyone, let alone with someone you don't know especially well.

Anyway, I think the...

The worst part, by far...

They were trying to be ambiguous, obviously, but they messed it up. In the finale, while...

Re: What does an actor do?

I think as much as we want there to be clear lines, so we can give out awards and compare and contrast, it'll always be fuzzy, and the answer will be slightly different every single time. Hell, it'd...

Yeah, I think you need to narrow this down a bit. Some of these are recognizable to anyone who watches even a handful of mainstream films. I'm going to close this thread, but feel free to ask about...
