oh, i also feel like i should mention Stand By Me, which was my favorite movie before i saw Fight Club

it's a movie i first saw as a kid, when such a movie would perhaps resonate with me the most, making it very close to my heart, but i don't know if it's truly a 10/10 when nostalgia does play a big part of my present-day enjoyment of it, and i typically prefer to cut that stuff out of my ratings

emigrate or degenerate. the choice is yours
So the Irishman was the snub of the night, right?

It really should have gotten cinematography the more I think about it. I haven't seen 1917 but what from what I heard it's Oscar is somewhat undeserved given its whole gimmick is its editing and camerawork?

I mean take a look at this and tell me that's not Oscar worthy.

just scorsese things tbh

he's always had a tendency to drop his films in the most competitive years, and always gets burned for it

2020 most anticpated?

-Tenet

Can't say I've ever disliked a Nolan film, despite his occasional memery dialogue. I'm excited to see him return to Sci fi, and its always great seeing Pattinson appearing in more and more kino. He's pretty much reinvented himself after Twilight.

-Dune

Amazing cast and Villeneuve back at the helm. Curious to see how he's progressed from BR2049.

-The Many Saints of Newark

Bit worried about the director on this one but as a Sopranos fan I'm certainly not going to be avoiding it.

-Last Night in Soho

Not particularly that intrigued by the premise but it's Edgar Wright so I'll be giving it a watch nonetheless.

This thread inspired me to try to see all the Best Picture nominations and I managed to see all of them except Little Women (I'd still like to rent it eventually). I think the Irishman would have for sure been my pick to win it.

Soul
Pixar has been the pits over the past decade, and things don't really seem to be looking up with movies like Onward on the horizon. Soul doesn't look like it's going to end this slump either, but what piques my interest about it is the fact that they got my man Trent Reznor doing the score. Easiest way to get me into a theater.

Mank
Favorite director's making it.

Dune
I'd like to read the book first, so I can understand why so many of its fanboys seem to think it's unadaptable, and then I can assess the film based on that knowledge. Maybe I'll watch David Lynch's attempt going into it, as well. If there's one man who has a directorial eye for beloved sci-fi stories, it's Villeneuve, but it'll certainly be funny if he shits the bed.

Evangelion: 3.0+1.0
The final chapter of this series that I've become invested in.

Mulan
I'm just morbidly curious.

I watched Parasite last night and I pretty much agree with everything you said. I enjoyed it but I didn't think it was a masterpiece like everyone is saying.
