    LET THE GAMES BEGIN. Nominations are announced in about ten hours. Oscars > Super Bowl

    Edit and yes This Is My Name. Maybe the stakes should be - if I win - you revert back to wpg204 (or w/e it once was.) if you win, Maybe I go back to captain awesome ? lol

    Parasite is the most overhyped movie since Roma, not even best foreign film (which is the best award presented at the oscars btw)
    like I'd understand best screenplay but best movie is a big no and any award for any actor is ridiculus

    what are your top10 movies of 2019 btw?

    The Tarantino film was probably the worst film of his already awkward filmography and I can't understand what people found interesting about it
    No characters, no story (except a copy-pasting of the sharon tate murder wikipedia page I guess ?), no progression, no idea...

    I think calling it "the most overhyped movie since Roma" is unfair to both it and Roma, but I do think Americans are a lil goofy on it –– it's a cool/tightly made summer thriller with great shotmaking and good performances, people think it's some transcendent art film bc it has subtitles. It's very good, it's just... not some decade-defining masterpiece.

    my list:

    15, Dolemite Is My Name (Brewer)
    14. Dark Waters (Haynes)
    13. Transit (Petzold)
    12. Parasite (Bong)
    11. Ad Astra (Gray)
    10. The Two Popes (Meirelles)
    9. Marriage Story (Baumbach)
    8. The Beach Bum (Korine)
    7. Uncut Gems (Safdie, Safdie)
    6. Ford v. Ferrari (Mangold)
    5. Little Women (Gerwig)
    4. The Irishman (Scorsese)
    3. High Flying Bird (Soderbergh)
    2. Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood (Tarantino)
    1. Portrait of a Lady on Fire (Sciamma)

    lmao ohhhhhhhhhh look at this clever fellow!

    A lot I haven't seen but my favs from what I have were:

    Irishman
    Parasite
    The Lighthouse
    Uncut Gems
    Midsommar

    I liked Knives Out and Once Upon a Time but not as much most people seem to. Knives Out was fun but the "liberal snowflake! alt right troll!" type dialogue was so forced and cringe to me.

    Also I thought Joker was entertaining but it's basically just a worse version of The King of Comedy lol
