Smoke Tuco, so you can't bullshit!

Yesterday, the two biggest rooms of the theater I went to were 100% full the whole evening and < with the film. So it's working. Good for them. I would never have put a dollar on this film even after Whiplash's amazing $3,000,000/$60,000,000 costs/benefits ratio.

What do you know about real people anyway, Kiboa?

This is a Kipogo:



They're mean and stupid. Although they can be emotionally vulnerable from time to time.

I'm sure either you don't write character characterization (lol, is that even correct?) for your father's video games or he went bankrupt in the meantime. Or most likely - both.

It's correct in French, no idea about how to say that in English :)

The oscar hate already started. Saw a Facebook status today saying "la la land sucks" with at least 20 agreeing comments. Before the nominations I didn't hear one thing but praise

I have not seen the film but as I started to use the library computer at the school I attend, I accidentally control+v and this came up:

Quote
This ‘mall montage’ scene from the movie Crazy, Stupid, Love can be viewed as a form of representation of the American culture as it has many aspects of it that can be interpreted as what one believes is the traditional american culture. First of all, right at the very beginning of the scene, we see this tall, mysterious and good looking man in a well fitted suit and sunglasses eating a pizza, which initially, pizza is already a direct symbol to what is thought of as the “American culture”. This symbol, yet quite irrelevant to the scene, does in fact play a role of symbolic importance as fast food is definitely representative of the American culture

Shame that was all that came up.

At the British Academy Film Awards last night La La Land won five awards - best film, Emma Stone best actress, Damien Chazelle best director, Justin Hurwitz best original music and Linus Sandgren best cinematography.  Ryan nowhere to be seen.

Nicole Kidman nice dress.  Some of the thank you speeches and jokes overly political which I suppose is not really surprising in view of world events.

And what did The Good The Bad and The Ugly, or Once Upon A Time In The West win at the British Academy Film Awards?  Case closed.

Of course I'm not saying it's perfect and it may be appreciated more in a theater rather than viewing a lo-res .avi screener.  As I posted before:

...For me the beginning was a bit cheesy - probably it was meant to be - and I didn't really like the ending.  If there had been a bit more light and shade and visible bad events, a happier ending and a few more memorable songs, I would have liked it more...

Having said that there's great on-screen chemistry between Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone both of whom worked hard at perfecting their characters.

During the last few months I've seen lots of movies (more than a hundred) and, like GBU OUATITW and OUATIA, La La Land is one of the few movies I'd happily sit through and watch again.

Moonlight winning is it's only hope...

Great prediction.  Moonlight is one of the few recent movies I've not seen but I'll bump it nearer to the top of my list.

The fake announcement was even better than just losing to Moonlight: it brought the sympathy back to the La La Land team.

The only films I would rate in the 21st century are Interstellar and Sexy Beast.     :-[
