Blackkklansman and Sacha are all about intolerance. The skill with which SBC exposes the stupidity of Americans is courageous, although the yanks aren't his only target.

Spike Lee's Jungle Fever is one of the greatest films in history. A must see for anyone who hasn't.

I loved Bohemian Rhapsody

A Star is Born not so much tho Gaga was great

Nae Pasaran is my favourite film of the year so far - catch it if you can - true story of scottish workers who refused to repair the engines from the Chilean air force after Pinochet's coup - it really is a cracking wee film and true testimony to solidarity  :thumbsup:

Mile 22, really disliked it, thought it was very poor to be honest.

Ballad Of Buster Scruggs ( the Coen Brothers did this ) was pretty enjoyable as you'd expect.
It's a math class, the whole deal. Just like every math class, there's a clown in the front, and everybody hates this clown because he raises his hand, he's answering all the questions. What do we do? Move on. Just fucking move on, ready or not. He's deciding we got to move on, he knows his math, I hadn't even figured out about Santa Claus yet.

State of Play, nearly 10 years old now and hadn't seen it in sometime but appeared on our netflix.  As good as I remembered it.  Not always a Russell Crowe fan but he was great in this.

Cold In July, caught in on BBC iPlayer, thought it was fucking tremendous, well worth a watch.

Like if you're sexually attracted to someone you don't know you can just grab their arse, be genuinely shocked that they didn't appreciate it but then 30 seconds later live happily ever after?

Nae sure it quite tells the whole story but what movie adaptation does? Still found it a thoroughly enjoyable movie and thought it was superbly acted by all involved.

If Beale street could talk. Was OK could have been much more, in the end a little disappointing.
Green Book. Fucking fantastic. Funny, challenging (if a little easy, ) heart warming, great actors bouncing off each other, best film I’ve seen in a good while well worth it. Go and see it.

I've seen Mary, Queen of Scots, Vice & The Favourite in the last week, all very good, Vice is cracking & The Favourite very funny if you like that dark humour.
I love Oscar season  :thumbsup:

Interesting. I saw that too and very much enjoyed it. I happened to come across some reviews and found them to be almost entirely negative because of the historical inaccuracies. Here was me thinking it was a movie, nae a documentary. ???

Gone Baby Gone.

It's a few years old, but I thought it was tremendous & highly recommend it.

Beautiful Boy is excellent, base on true story of dad and his drug addict son, both parts very well played

So hollywood has decided its time to remake 'Dirty Rotten Scoundrels' with Anne Hathaway and Rebel Wilson taking the Michael Caine & Steve Martin Roles

 :hammer:

Comparison

1988



2019

I'm a man, and as a man I crave disappointment.

That's why I support Aberdeen Football Club & Scotland.

Watched A Star is Born on Friday. Lady Gaga is a phenomenon, probably the best female singer of all time. As a film though, it didn't deserve to win best picture but it was a very enjoyable watch.

Strong statement. I rate her very highly too (despite liking next to none of her songs). Her talent is clear and I can't think of anyone who's clearly above her.

I didn't think A Star Is Born won any of the major Oscars? Are were you stating that in agreement?

I don't understand the question.

If you can't think of anyone to challenge her as the best - most talented - female singer, it might actually be true albeit that taste and personal preferences rather than data and facts obfuscate any possible ranking or rating criteria.

Having said that, I also struggle to like many of her songs. There are very few I would want to hear more than a couple of times but having seen her live (at the Hydro) and particularly the YouTube of her doing Imagine to open the Baku games, the woman is possessed of the highest spiritual talent and power. When I wrote that accolade, Nina Simone was the other I was thinking of as a potential competitor and whilst Aretha is going to be the most popular choice, Gaga's range and consistently staggering delivery wins it for me.
