2020.10.06 14:09 upbstock morning update

U.S. House hints at Big Tech breakup
A House antitrust subcommittee report due this week on big tech - Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN), Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) and Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL) - is hinting toward breaking up the tech giants, according to a lawmaker in the GOP minority. “This proposal is a thinly veiled call to break up Big Tech firms. We do not agree with the majority’s approach,” says Republican congressman Ken Buck in a draft response seen by Reuters. He says he shares Democratic concerns about the companies' market power, but objects to requiring them to pursue a clear "single line of business." Cisco ordered to pay $1.9B in patent infringement case
Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO) has been ordered to pay $1.9B in a patent infringement case. The U.S. district judge said the case was “not a close call,” ruling that Cisco infringed four patents belonging to Centripetal Networks but didn’t infringe on a fifth. The award includes $755.8M in actual damages, multiplied by 2.5 to reflect “willful and egregious” conduct from Cisco plus prejudgement interest. Cisco plans to appeal.
Warner Bros. delays 'The Batman' to 2022; postpones 'Flash,' 'Shazam 2'
Warner Bros. (NYSE:T) delayed Dune until October 1, 2021 and shifted The Batman starring Robert Pattinson until March 4, 2022. The studio pulled Black Adam (starring Dwayne Johnson) and Minecraft from the release calendar. The newest sequel to The Matrix film series made the rare leap forward, from April 1, 2022 to Dec. 22, 2021. The Flash will move from June to November in 2022, and Shazam 2 leaves November 2022 for June 2, 2023.
Southwest Airlines asks workers to accept pay cuts in lieu of furloughs
Southwest Airlines (NYSE:LUV) is asking its union workers to accept pay cuts for the first time, to help the company avoid its first furloughs and/or layoffs. The company wants pay cuts on the table to avoid furloughs/layoffs through the end of next year. The passing of an Oct. 1 deadline tied to $25B the industry received in aid means struggling airlines are considering layoffs, and Southwest rivals United Airlines (NASDAQ:UAL) and American Airlines (NASDAQ:AAL) have gone ahead with more than 32,000 cuts.
Australian miner Northern Star offers to buy Saracen Mineral in A$5.7B deal
Northern Star Resources (OTCPK:NESRF) has agreed to acquire smaller Australian rival Saracen Mineral Holdings (OTCPK:SCEXF) in a A$5.76B (US$4.14B) deal that will create a new top 10 global gold miner according to its ~A$16B in market valuation. Northern Star will own 64% of the combined entity and Saracen will own the remaining 36%. The deal comes after the two mining companies each acquired 50% stakes in Australia's giant KCGM operation, commonly known as the Super Pit, Australia's largest open cut gold mine.
What else is happening...
Halozyme (NASDAQ:HALO) expands license agreement with argenx (NASDAQ:ARGX) for Enhanze Technology. Oil pipeline operators offer new discounts as demand drops - Bloomberg. BHP (NYSE:BHP) buys Hess' (NYSE:HES) Shenzi oil field stake in $505M deal. Fortive (NYSE:FTV) spin-off Vontier (VNT) to join S&P 500.

2020.09.01 13:55 RELFantasticMaize2 My 18 year Generation Theory based on Cultural, Historical, and Technological Events

This is my take on how I view each generation, based on 8 year pure cohorts and 10 year spectrums. Some of you may have seen a similar post like this in the past, as this is a repost, since I deleted the original post, with added notable people, and percentages of each generation. For those of you who have never seen the original post, in my opinion, I feel generations aren’t very clear cut and don’t evolve overnight. I don’t think people who are 15-17 years apart will share the exact same generation traits. I believe in 8 year solid cohorts, where the years that make up the quintessential part of the generation can be found. For Baby Boomers, it’s 1950-1957, for Gen X, its 1968-1975, for Millennials it’s 1986-1993, and for Gen Z, its 2004-2011. Everything else in between is a spectrum transitioning from one generation to the next. With these spectrums, every year, traits from the previous generation start to die off and new traits start to form, which would help lay the foundation for the next generation. With that out of the way, let’s begin:
Soomer Spectrum 1940-1949 Classes of 1958-1967 Last cohort to have any Silent traits, and the first to have any Boomer traits. They entered elementary school after World War II. They were all born after the introduction of the television. The first half were born during World War II and the last four years were born during the Baby Boom. They primarily spent most of their elementary school years and childhood during the post-war boom of the late 40s to mid 50s. The first half were born during World War II and the last four years were born during the Baby Boom. They are the 40s babies, were the pioneers of the Hippie Movement, and were the primary group drafted during the Vietnam War. They are the children of Greatests and Greatest Losts.

They entered elementary school after the Vietnam War began, primarily grew up during the rise of standard television, and entered high school after the Kennedy Assassination. The oldest year came of age in the year 1968, one of the most polarizing years in US history. The first half played a role in the Hippie Movement, as there was still a draft age, while the last couple of years came of age afterwards, but primarily spent most of their high school years and adolescence before the Disco era began. They are the children of Greatest Silents and Greatests.

2020.08.29 19:19 house_for_sale I was a fidelity tester. The ease with which people tend to cheat on their partners was not the scariest thing I encountered during my "career"...

Fidelity tester’s job seems quite easy. Even for a semi-attractive woman, picking up boys is not a tedious job. They’re kind of hunters and if they’re not having a bit of inner moral principles they can be easily approached and got into bed even if they’re in a serious relationship. My task is to check whether my client’s boyfriend, spouse, husband or future son-in-law has those moral principles. Men are my main target. But not exclusively. One of my clients wanted me to check fidelity of her girlfriend. I’m not lesbian but I’m professional and playing homosexual wasn’t a big deal for me.
Salary I got from this job was enough to pay my bills and I could even save some money. I thought I would be able to do this for a long time, at least until I stay young enough to be object of desire. But one task changed everything.
It seemed off from the beginning.
First warning sign was the way that my client contacted me. Instead of ordinary mail or DM, I got an analogue letter in which I was invited to some obscure bar in the outskirts of town at strictly specified date and time. I was a bit behind with my budget at a time and so I didn’t decline the invitation.
I came to the bar at the right time. Place called “White Flag” was as obscure as I expected. Floor was sticky and smell of cigarettes penetrated the building and every object inside. There were only two customers. One completely drunk girl, laying her head on her table and mumbling something to herself. A kind of girl, the vicious guy could “take” home. The other guest was modestly dressed twenty-something girl. And by modest I don’t mean that she had soft makeup and basic clothes. If she had her hair covered I would assume she was a nun. Comparing to her, I looked like a total hooker.
The girl noticed me, smiled, and invited me to her table.
Despite circumstances, the introduction to the case was quite common. And girl was really nice despite her old fashioned appearance.
Jane explained that she was going to marry her husband, John (I made up those names for anonymity) in about a year, next Easter. It was a tradition in her orthodox protestant community to organize weeding only once a year, during the festivity.
Her community had also a few other strict rules, including the demand that women must stay clean until her wedding night. Jane was fine with the rule as obviously she was very religious. It was demonstrated by a small but visible necklace with tiny silver cross. She told me that John also declared to be believer and promised her she’d be his first. However, she and her parents had some doubts about the guy.
‘He lives in our town but he’s not born there. He arrived to town to earn a few bucks by helping us in harvest. But then he decided he loved our community and moved in.’, she explained.
‘And I guess, that’s the source of your doubts? The fact that he wasn’t raised in accordance with your rules?’
‘That, plus the fact that he leaves town every few weeks. He tells me and my parents… You know, we’re only supposed to see each other in their presence… that he’s got to visit his sick grandma from time to time. But one time our brother Bob ran across him twice (Sorry sis, brother Joshua followed him on purpose, I thought) in this bar during his absence. It’s kind of suspicious. John’s grandma lives in Illinois. And it’s not the road to Illinois.’
‘So you think the guy might be coming here to pick up some girls?’, I asked.
‘If ‘picking up’ means what I think… then my answer is yes.’, she replied.
‘Do you have any photos of your future spouse?’
It was the second warning sign.
Jane didn’t have any photos of the guy. She told me that the guy hated photos and in their community they tried to avoid modern inventions like photography so it’s not uncommon for people to live their whole life with no more than a few photos.
‘But he came to your town a few years back. He must have had photo session in school, maybe some photos on social media.’
‘Maybe, try to find him on the… Web.’
But he was nowhere on the Web. No Facebook account. No photos. No trace of him living in Illinois town where he was supposed to according to Jane. No student of his name in any of the local schools. It was obvious the guy was a big liar. He was escaping from his past or living double life. I wanted to help this poor girl to avoid a big mistake. I had two other clients before John finally left community “to visit his grandma” but the case of Jane constantly occupied my mind.
Finally, the day of the mission had come.
As we agreed, brother Bob, gruff overweight middle-aged man in his 50s, came to my apartment one night to inform me that John came to the bar once again. I quickly put on quite heavy make up, wore short black dress revealing a bit too much and high heels. Bob gave me a lift to the bar. I felt uneasy during the whole trip because he looked at me with obvious lust.
He didn’t talk much. He only made one strange remark about my target.
‘This guy, John. He’s a good looking guy. If I was one of those… gays… I’d like him. Ya get me. But don’t tell anyone.’
‘No problem, Bob.’, I answered astounded.
When we arrived at the bar it was about 10 p.m. John’s car was still outside.
Bob sneaked up to the bar’s window and told me a table where John was. It was necessary so I wouldn’t mistake him for other guy. Then he quickly returned to his car and left me alone outside. He promised he’d wait for me on a parking lot not too far away.
Without hesitation I entered “White Flag”. It was as dirty and repulsive as the last time.
I looked at the table where John was and… my heart beat faster.
He was my type of guy. I am ashamed to admit it but he was similar to Robert Pattinson back in his Twilight times. But he had shorter and neater hair. And he wasn’t so pale, of course.
‘Well, it should make my job much easier.’, I thought trying to come to my right senses.
Pretending to be a bit drunk I approached counter slightly staggering. I asked for whisky and cola. A barman was hesitant at first but he finally gave me my drink.
Slowly, I started sipping the drink giving John a significant look from time to time and thinking why the hell would such a guy join the traditional protestant community and marry a plain, overly modest girl next door instead of hitting the hot chicks of this world. He wouldn’t have to sit in such a place trying to get lucky.
I spent about twenty minutes or so staring at the guy like crazy. I was about to appreciate his hard moral backbone when he got up from his place and came to me. He smelled my favourite men’s fragrance. It was too perfect to be true. And it was the third warning sign I ignored.
‘What would such a beauty do in such a neglected place?’, he asked. He had amazing deep voice.
What a poor opening line, Mr. Cullen, I thought.
‘Ah… you know… I am turning twenty five today… and I’ve never done that one thing.’, I told something like that but it was more chaotic. I tried my best to play wasted girl. I also touched John’s chest meaningly.
I caught a slight smile on John’s face. He put a hand on my knee and said:
‘You… you’re damn pretty. I can’t imagine you haven’t done it yet.’
He was a terrible hitter. But his looks made it up for him.
‘I can do it with you.’
The game seemed too easy. We exchanged some more embarrassing lines and he finally decided to invite me to his car.
I’ve recorded our whole flirt in secret so it was a moment when I should’ve put an end to this mascarade pretending I’m about to vomit or something. But I didn’t. The guy just looked too good.
He drove me up to his place. It was a room in a cheap old motel. The wallpaper was scratched and instead of lamp there was a single lightbulb hanging from a ceiling. He didn’t waste any time, he threw me on his bed, lied down on me and started kissing me like crazy. His soft tongue stuck deep inside my mouth…
I closed my eyes to feel the warmth of his big manly hands around my waist. But something happened.
Suddenly his tongue became coarse like cat’s tongue. And his hands running up my torso felt like sandpaper.
‘Stop it, you’re hurting me.’, I told and I opened my eyes. I wish I had never done it.
The handsome face was gone. Instead there was a blue mess covered with reptilian skin. Eye sockets were empty, instead of mouth there was a gaping hole from which a twisted and long violet tongue stuck out. It started licking my face as dog would do. The thing’s saliva dripped on my face. It was hot and felt like burning tip of the cigarette.
I couldn’t see much of John’s body cause its face was too close to my face. I felt its rotten breath.
‘How do you like it now?’, he asked. His voice was hoarse and I could swear that it was backed up by some muted squeaky voice in the background.
I tried to scream but I my muscles were stiff out of fear.
I felt something slippery brushing my inner thigh. It moved independently to the rest of the thing’s body. The panties were no obstacle for it…
The monster squeaked.
‘You lied to me. You’re not immaculate!’, it screamed. I could hear fear in its voice. The thing touching lower parts of my body suddenly withdrew.
In a blink of an eye, John became human again. But he wasn’t Pattinson’s lost twin brother anymore. I saw prematurely balding, pimpled guy with a sparse tubble. He pulled his pants on and ran out of the room leaving me half alive and completely broken on the bed.
I lied there in shock sobbing and trying to realize what had just happened but I couldn’t. I felt pain, fear and embarassment. A part of me was abruptly taken but something out of this world.
I left the room a few hours later. I contacted motel manager who helped me to get back to my apartment. Despite his request I didn’t report the assault. Actually, I’ve never done it, afraid of confronting the thing. What’s more I moved far away from the town and stopped my fidelity tester career.
What about Jane? Wishing to erase those terrible events from my mind, I’ve never contacted her and I’m not going to. I hope she’s fine.

2020.05.07 09:48 MrFeature_1 Once and for all - should we use GOOGLE ADS?

Hello, dear fellow content creators. I am here to settle this once and for all, with your help of course :)
I want to talk about Google Ads. Lately I see more and more posts about Pros & Cons of running google ads. There is a multitude of opinions and perspectives on this tactic in getting your channel boosted, so I thought I would share my own experience and the Pros & Cons I took away from this little experiment. After that, I would kindly ask YOU to share your experience/fears/hopes of using Google Ads in the comments.
Alright, so I did this video on why Robert Pattinson might be a great Batman (I am a movie buff channel). Before I did a campaign run on it, my video got 55 views, but 30 unique viewers, which was pretty high at the time. Total watched time was about 2-3 hours. 3 subscribers. I run a campaign on this video and here is what I had after 24 hours advertisement (but please note that this campaign was run LAST MONTH, and since then I gained 4-5 views on this video):
1140 views; 9.4 watched hours; +5 subscribers gained; 8 comments. My audience retention is awful on this video - barely 6%. The video is 9 minutes long and people turn it off after 30 seconds, which is understandable - they were forced to see my content by an ad(which is never as good as the 'recommended' algorithm).
Now, I want to compare that Google ADs campaign video to my recent video (predicting Christopher Nolan new movie's story), which I had 0 campaigns for, but in stead I did promote it on various reddits, facebook groups, that would have a potential interest in this video. This a result I have after 10 days since publishing this video:
826 views; 107 watched hours!!!; +8 subscribers; 20 comments. I have 2-3 views per hour at this moment, so I am sure I will hit a 1000 views by the end of this week. People on reddit & facebook enjoyed and watched this video so much, that Youtube started finally slowly putting it on top of the search results AND 3 videos of other big youtubers are now suggesting this video of mine.
So what are my positive and negative take away from Google Ads.
1) Google Ads are ALL about VIEWS. Because first thing that people will do is click, but its also likely the last thing that they will do. If you compare 1k views from an ad and 1k views gained organically, expect that Google Ads video will have 10x less engagement.
2) If you want those watched hours, then definitely your primary strategy should be making quality video on a topic that is barely covered, but that there are enough people to be interested in. Not only it will give you more watched hours, but it will give you the hours that count towards monetisation, if thats your goal (google ads watched hours do not count towards monetisation).
3) Google Ads will hurt your retention rate, which arguably is a key to get your videos being suggested and promoted by YouTube algorithm. I don't know how true it is, but then again - my Batman video is barely getting any views, even though its technically sitting at a higher views count than my non-promoted video.
So at the end of the day, even though I am tempted and seduced daily by a prospect of instant views on my video, I chose to stay away from Google Ads as long as possible. Right now I am gaining about 1 subscriber ever 2-3 days, which is a slow, but steady growth. But at least these people will not unsubscribe as fast as if I gained them during Google Ads. So thats that.
Do you guys agree? Or do you have a completely opposite experience? Please let me know, i really want to find out what the community has to say.
Have a lovely day!

2020.03.04 16:39 ReleaseDCUT This new DC movie will suck, CONFIRMED !! LEAK

So yesterday i saw in a Facebook Batman Fan CLub group one guy post how Matt Reeves The Batman and Todd Phillips Joker movies suck and will suck always. Do not get me wrong, i see such guys all the time everywhere online, those i like to call wave rider.
I grew up on Batman 89, Batman TAS and Comic books for the character of all sorts, eventually the coimic books turned into graphic novels and sine then ive seen every possible Batman and lately DC related piece of cinema, animation etc.
To me real fans of this are the ones that when they hear an announcment for this their skin crawls of excitement, everyone else to me is just some random wave ridder.
In 89 Michael Keaton was subjected to the "Mr Mom cant be Batman" super attack, then the same guys that hated him are now the guys that lurk in the Batman Online comment section and bash all other actors since. When Kilmer and Clooney were both announced, it was met with positive reactions due to their looks " oh they fit the comics look " , where did that end ? Now they act like they never were on board.
When Batman Begins came out, due to the last two movies, people werent looking forward to it at all. Movie made its budget back and then some, but got great word of mouth and the after market captured the attention of all. Bale was critiqued about not being American, his Bat voice, but during the 2005-2013 era, people instantly threw Batman 89 in the back burner and staned Bale. When news hit about Heath Ledger internet went balisctic, OMG the Gay Guy from Brokeback Mountain is playing the Joker, post premiere everyone had a " Why so Serious?" quote ready, Jack Nickolson was immidiately thrown into the garbage. Same with Ben Affleck, " O no , Batman with a Boston accent, sad Batman meme, fat Batman meme " , now its 'Most accurate version of all time" .Same happened with Joker and Joaquin Phoenix, same with Rober Pattinson and the first leaked photos.
All in all, speaking specifically as a Bat fan, i must say, we are the luckiest sons of bitches on earth. Batman 89, Batman Returns, Batman TAS, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, Batman v Superman, The Batman, DCAU Batman, Batman video games , Graphic Novels, spin off that can easily become as popular, Gotham TV series, Pennyworth TV series, Titans TV Series and Animation and those are the good ones, we also have more campy shit like Forever, B&R, Batman 66, Brave and the Bold, Justice League, Suicide Squad 1&2 , JL DCAU, and so many others like LEGO Batman ---
So dear fans of other stuff [MCU mostly] , trying to convince me that this kick ass director [Matt Reeves] casting these actors [Robert, Zoe, Colin, Andy, John T., Paul D., Jeffrey W, doing a serious version based on some of my favorite comic book stories, with no 99% CGI, supernatural villains , and nipples, credit cards, etc . , please stop, go watch the last two Ape movies, i coudnt move my eyes in the tense moments, moments starring Apes, let alone the biggest property that doesnt depend on sharing 67 characters to make bank ...
So excusse me, but when you get to 8, 9 + solo movies, that do not relly on shared universes and gimmicks , call me.
Spider-man is the only one that could have, but they stuck that ass in the MCU as well, and now he been Stark's sidekick for 4 movies too :D
See ya in 2021 The Batman premiere

2020.02.18 01:12 jonisantucho Oscars 2021: An inside look (like, really inside) to 50 possible contenders in the next awards race

Another Oscar ceremony happened, and we got our fair share of joy and disappointment. After Parasite surprised the world and took Best Picture, it seems like the game has changed for the awards race, now that non-English speaking films can actually fight and be recognized as well as classics as… Green Book. The Oscar race is still full of pain and glory, and even though the year has barely started, we have a bunch of movies that are fighting for air. And here’s 50 of them. Yes, I had some free time in my hands and this is a cool hobby, so I took the liberty to introduce most of the movies that will have Film Twitter entertained for the following 12 months. I say most, because there are always contenders who come out of nowhere later in the year, so this is the starter set. Here we go.
-Annette: Since Parasite’s road to the Oscars started at Cannes, it seems fair to talk about a movie that is circling a premiere in the world stage that is set in France. After delivering weird, indie classics like Mauvais Sang and Holy Motors (yes, the kind of movies that make you seem like a snob when you recommend them to people), Leos Carax is making his first movie spoken in the English language… and it has a musical screenplay written by the cult rock duo of Sparks. Recently robbed Adam Driver and previous Oscar winner Marion Cotillard sing in this tale of a stand-up comedian and a famous soprano singer who rise and fall in Los Angeles while their daughter is born with a special gift. It seems like a wild bet, but we already know that Carax is a master with musical moments, so this is one of the most intriguing question marks of the year.
-Ammonite: It’s time to talk narratives. On the one hand, we have Kate Winslet, a known name who hasn’t been very successful in the Oscar race since her Oscar win for The Reader over a decade ago (with the exception being her supporting performance in Steve Jobs, where she had a weird accent). On the other, we have Saoirse Ronan, a star on the rise who keeps collecting Oscar nominations, with 4 nods at the age of 25, including her fresh Best Actress loss for Little Women. What happens if we put them together in a drama set in the coasts of England during the 19th century where both of them fall for each other? That’s gonna be a winning formula if writedirector Francis Lee (who tackled queer romance in his acclaimed debut God’s Own Country) nails the Mary Anning story, and Neon (the distribution company founded three years ago that took Parasite to victory) is betting on it.
-Benedetta: We know the Paul Verhoeven story. After isolating himself from Hollywood for over a decade, he took Isabelle Huppert to an Oscar nominated performance with the controversial, sexy, dark and funny thriller Elle. Now, he’s back with another story that perks up the ears, because now he’s covering the life of Benedetta Carlini, a 17th-century lesbian nun who had religious and erotic visions. If you know Paul, you already can tell that this fits into his brand of horniness, and a possible Cannes premiere could tell us if this has something to carry itself to Oscar night.
-Blonde: With a short but impactful directorial credits list that takes us from Chopper, to The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford to Killing Them Softly, Andrew Dominik is back with a film about Marilyn Monroe, a woman who has transcended the ideas of fame and stardom, in ways that are glamorous and nightmarish at the same time. After failing to launch with Naomi Watts or Jessica Chastain,the rising Ana de Armas takes the lead in the retelling of Monroe’s troubled life based on Joyce Carol Oates’ novel, which is said to be covered in the screenplay as somewhat of a horror movie. We don’t know what that means yet, but Netflix is gonna push hard for this one, especially considering how the Academy loves throwing awards to stars playing previous stars, and that also can possibly include co-stars Bobby Cannavale and Adrien Brody.
-Breaking News in Yuba County: While he hasn’t gone back to the heights of his success achieved by the box office and award success of The Help (a movie that did not age well), Tate Taylor is still enjoying himself economically due to recent thrillers like The Girl on the Train and Ma. For his next movie, he’s made a dramedy that once again reunites him with Oscar winner Allison Janney, where she plays a woman who has to keep appearances and a hidden body when she catches her husband cheating on her, and then he dies of a heart attack. With a cast that also includes Mila Kunis, Regina Hall, Awkwafina, Samira Wiley, Wanda Sykes, Jimmi Simpson and Ellen Barkin, this could be a buzzy title later this year.
-C’mon C’mon: You may love or hate whatever Joaquin Phoenix did in Joker, but you can’t deny the benefit of playing the Crown Prince of Crime in an Oscar-winning performance. The blank check that you share with indie directors afterwards. Now that Joaquin’s cultural cachet is on the rise, Mike Mills gets to benefit with this drama that stars Phoenix and Gaby Hoffmann, with him playing an artist left to take care of his precocious young nephew as they forge an unexpected bond over a cross country trip. We only have to wonder if A24 will do better with this movie’s Oscar chances compared to 20th Century Women.
-Cherry: After killing half the universe and bringing them back with the highest grossing movie of all time, where do you go? For Joe and Anthony Russo, the answer is “away from the Marvel Cinematic Universe”. The Russo brothers are trying to distance themselves and prove that they have a voice without Kevin Feige behind them, with a crime drama that’s also different than their days when they directed You, Me and Dupree or episodes of Arrested Development and Community. To help them in the journey, they took Tom Holland (who also needs to distance himself from Spider-Man, lest he ends up stuck to the character in the audience’s eyes) to star in a crime drama based on former Army medic Nico Walker’s memoir about his days after Iraq, where the PTSD and an opioid addiction led him to start robbing banks.
-Da 5 Bloods: After bouncing back from a slump with the critical and commercial success of BlackKklansman, Spike Lee is cashing a Netflix check to tell the tale of four African American veterans who return to Vietnam to search for their fallen leader and some treasure. With a cast that includes Delroy Lindo, Clarke Peters, Isiah Whitlock Jr, Paul Walter Hauser and Chadwick Boseman, this sounds like an interesting combo, although we still should remember the last time that Spike tried his hand at a war movie, with the dull Miracle at St. Anna.
-Dune: If you are on Reddit, you probably know about the new film by movies’ new Messiah, Denis Villeneuve. While the epic sci-fi novel by Frank Herbert is getting a new chance in the multiplexes after that David Lynch movie that was forgotten by many, some are hoping that this will be the beginning of a new franchise (as seen by the release date of December 18, taking the spot of the usual Star Wars opening), and a return to the whole “remember when stuff like Return of the King or Fury Road were nominated for Best Picture?” question. Timothee Chalamet will be riding a lot of hope, and sandworm.
-Everybody’s Talking About Jamie: As you start to see, there are several musicals that are gonna be fighting for attention over the next year, and Annette was the first one. Now, we also have this adaptation of the hit West End production, that centers around a gay British teenager who dreams of becoming a drag queen and get his family and schoolmates to accept his sexuality. With a cast that mixes young unknowns, familiar Brits (Sharon Horgan, Sarah Lancashire and my boy Ralph Ineson) and the previously nominated legend that is Richard E. Grant (who is playing a former drag queen named Loco Chanelle), the creative team of the stage musical will jump to the big screen with the help of Fox Searchlight (sorry, just Searchlight), who has clear Oscar hopes with a release date right in the middle of awards heat, on October 23.
-Hillbilly Elegy: Even though the Parasite victory gave many people hope for a new Academy that stops recognizing stuff like previous winner Green Book… let’s be honest, the Academy will still look for movies like Green Book. This year, many people are turning their eyes towards Ron Howard’ adaptation of J.D. Vance’s memoir about his low income life in a poor rural community in Ohio, filled with drugs, violence and verbal abuse. If this sounds like white trash porn, it doesn’t help to know that Glenn Close, who has become the biggest living Oscar bridesmaid with seven nominations, will play a character called Mamaw. And if that sounds trashy, then you have to know that Amy Adams, who follows Glenn with six nominations, is playing her drug-addicted, careless daughter. I don’t want to call this “Oscar bait”, but it sure is tempting.
-I’m Thinking of Ending Things: After his stopmotion existential dramedy Anomalisa got him a Best Animated Feature nomination at the Oscars but at the same time bombed at the box office, Charlie Kaufman is getting the Netflix check. This time, he’s adapting the dark novel by Iain Reid, about a woman (Jessie Buckley, who is on the rise and took over the role after Brie Larson had to pass) who is taken by her boyfriend (Jesse Plemons) to meet his parents (Toni Collette and David Thewlis), in a trip that takes a turn for the worse. If Kaufman can deliver with this one, it will be a big contender.
-In the Heights: Yes, more musicals! This time, it’s time to talk about Lin-Manuel Miranda’s first Tony-winning musical, that was overshadowed because of his other small play about some treasury secretary. Now, his Broadway ensemble tale about life in a neighborhood in Washington Heights is jumping to the movie screen with Jon Chu at the helm, following the success of Crazy Rich Asians. This Latino tale mixes up-and-comers like Anthony Ramos (who comes straight from Hamilton and playing Lady Gaga’s friend in A Star is Born), names like Corey Hawkins and Jimmy Smits (who is pro bits), and Olga Merediz, who starred in the Broadway show as Abuela Claudia and who could be the early frontrunner for Best Supporting Actress, if Chu allows her to shine like she did onstage.
-Jesus Was My Homeboy: When looking at up-and-coming Black actors right now in Hollywood, two of the top names are Daniel Kaluuya and Lakeith Stanfield, who already appeared in the same movie in Get Out, which earned Kaluuya a Best Actor nomination. This time, they share the screen in Shaka King’s retelling of the story of Fred Hampton (Kaluuya), an activist and Black Panther leader… as well as the story of William O’Neal (Stanfield), the FBI agent sent by J. Edgar Hoover to infiltrate the party and arrest him. With the backing of Warner Bros, this will attempt to make an impact with a clash of actors that will have to fight with an August release date, not the ideal time to release an awards movie.
-King Richard: Starting with Suicide Squad, Will Smith has been trying to prove that he’s back and better than ever. Some attempts to get back to the top of the A-list (Aladdin, Bad Boys For Life) have worked, while others (Gemini Man, Spies in Disguise)... have not. But Will is still going, and now he’s going for his next prestige play as he plays Richard Williams, the coach and father of the tennis legends Venus and Serena, who pushed them to their full potential. While it’s weird that the father of the Williams sisters is getting a movie before them, it does sound like a meaty role for Smith, who has experience with Oscar notices with sports biopics because of what he did with Michael Mann in Ali. Let’s hope director Reinaldo Marcus Green can take him there too.
-Last Night in Soho: Every year, one or two directors who have a cool reputation end up in the Dolby Theatre, and 2020 could be the year of Edgar Wright. After delivering his first big box office hit with Baby Driver, the Brit is going back to London to tell a story in the realm of psychological horror, which has been supposedly inspired by classics like Don’t Look Now and Repulsion. With a premise that supposedly involves time travel and a cast that includes Anya-Taylor Joy, Thomasin McKenzie, Matt Smith and Diana Rigg, Wright (who also co-wrote this with Krysty Wilson-Cairns, who was just nominated for Best Original Screenplay for her work in 1917) is making a big swing.
-Let Them All Talk: Every year there’s more new streaming services, and that also means that there’s new players in the Oscar game. To secure subscribers to the new service, HBO Max has secured the rights to the next Steven Soderbergh movie, a comedy that stars Meryl Streep as a celebrated author that takes her friends (Candice Bergen, Dianne Wiest) and her nephew (Lucas Hedges, again) in a journey to find fun and come to terms with the past. The last time that Soderbergh and Streep worked together, the end result was the very disappointing The Laundromat. Let’s hope that this time everything works out.
-Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom: Now that Netflix got the deal to adapt August Wilson’s acclaimed plays with Denzel Washington’s production company, the next jump from the stage to the screen is a meaty one. Viola Davis is playing blues singer Ma Rainey in this tale of a heated recording session with her bandmates, her agent and her producer in 1927, with a cast that also includes Chadwick Boseman, Glynn Turman and Colman Domingo. The Tony nominated play talked about race, art and the intersection of the two, and it’s gonna be explosive to see that unfold on screen, even if director George C. Wolfe’s previous filmography isn’t very encouraging.
-Macbeth: In a shocking development, the Coen brothers are no more. Well, just this time. For the first time in his career, Joel Coen is making a movie without Ethan, and it’s a Shakespeare adaptation. Denzel Washington is playing the man who wants to be king of Scotland, and Frances McDormand is playing his Lady Macbeth. While this just started filming and it will be a race to finish it in time for competition in the awards race, the potential is there, and this project has everybody’s attention.
-Mank: After scoring 24 Oscar nominations and only winning 2 awards last Sunday, Netflix has to wonder what else must they do to get in the club that awards them. They tried with Cuarón, they tried with Scorsese, they tried with Baumbach, they tried with two Popes, and they still feel a barrier. Now, the big gamble for awards by the streamer in 2020 comes to us in the hands of David Fincher, who is basically their friend after the rest of Hollywood denied him (Disney dropped his 20,000 Leagues adaptation, HBO denied the US remake of Utopia, and Paramount drove World War Z 2 away from him). In his first movie since 2014’s Gone Girl, David will go black and white to tackle a script by his late father about the making of the classic of classics, Citizen Kane, with previous Oscar winner Gary Oldman playing the lead role of screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz. Will the Academy fall for the ultimate “power of da moviesshhh” story?
-Minari: Sundance can be hit or miss with the breakout films that try to make it to the Oscars. However, you can’t deny the waves made by A24 when they premiered Lee Isaac Chung’s new drama there, ending up winning the Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award in the US Dramatic Competition. If Parasite endeared Academy voters to Korean families, Steven Yeun hopes that the same thing happens with this story, where he plays a father in the ‘80s who suddenly decides to move his family to Arkansas to start a farm. Even though the reviews have been great, we must also remember that last year, A24 had in their hands The Farewell, another Sundance hit about an Asian family that ended up with no Oscar nominations. Let’s hope that this time, the Plan B influence (remember, that’s Brad Pitt’s production company, of Moonlight and 12 Years a Slave fame) makes a difference.
-Next Goal Wins: It’s a good time to be Taika Waititi. Why? Taika Waititi can do what he wants. He can direct a Thor movie, he can win an Oscar for writing a comedy set in WW2 about a Third Reich boy who has an Imaginary Hitler friend, or he can pop up in The Mandalorian as a droid. Taika keeps winning, and he wants more. Between his press tour for Jojo Rabbit and his return to the MCU, he quickly shot an adaptation of a great documentary about the disgraced national team of American Samoa, one of the worst football teams known to man, as they try to make the cut for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Everybody loves a good sports comedy, and Searchlight bets that we’ll enjoy this story led by Michael Fassbender as the new (and Dutch-American) coach in town who tries to shape the team for victory.
-News of the World: Seven years after their solid collaboration in Captain Phillips, Paul Greengrass and Tom Hanks reunite for more awards love in what seems to be Universal’s main attraction for the Oscars. This time, Hanks stars in a Western drama based on Paulette Jiles’ novel where he plays a traveling newsreader in the aftermath of the American Civil War who is tasked with reuniting an orphaned girl with her living relatives. With a Christmas release date, Universal is betting big in getting the same nomination boost that 1917 is enjoying right now, and the formula is promising.
-Nightmare Alley: Following his Best Picture and Best Director wins for The Shape of Water, everybody in Hollywood wondered what would Guillermo del Toro do next. Well, as Del Toro often does, a little bit of everything and nothing. Some projects moved (as his produced Pinocchio movie on Netflix, or his Death Stranding likeness cameo), others stalled and die (like his proposed Fantastic Voyage remake). But now he’s rolling on his next project, a new adaptation of the William Lindsay Gresham novel that already was a Tyrone Power film in 1947. This noir tale tells the story of a con man (Bradley Cooper) who teams up with a psychiatrist (Cate Blanchett) to trick people and win money, and how things get out of control. With a cast that also includes Toni Collette, Willem Dafoe, Rooney Mara and more, this could play well if it hits the right tone.
-Nomadland: There’s breakout years, and then there’s the amazing potential of Chloe Zhao’s 2020. On the one hand, after making Hollywood notice her skill with the gripping story of The Rider, she got the keys to the MCU kingdom to direct the next potential franchise of Kevin Feige, The Eternals. And just in case, she also has in her sleeve this indie drama that she wrote and directed beforehand, with two-time Oscar winner Frances McDormand playing a woman who, after losing everything in the Great Recession, embarks on a journey through the American West, living as a van-dwelling modern-day nomad. If Chloe nails these two films, it could be the one-two punch of the decade.
-One Night in Miami: Regina King is living her best life. Following her Oscar win for Best Supporting Actress in If Beale Street Could Talk and the success that came with her lead role in the Watchmen show on HBO, the actress is jumping to a new challenge: directing movies. For her big screen debut, she’s adapting Kemp Powers’ play that dramatizes a real meeting on February 25, 1964, between Muhammad Ali, Malcolm X, Sam Cooke and Jim Brown.
-Over the Moon: After earning praise and Oscar nominations with I Lost My Body and Klaus, Netflix will keep its bet on animated movies with a film directed by the legendary Glen Keane. Who? A classic Disney animator responsible for the design of characters like Ariel, the Beast, Aladdin, Pocahontas, Tarzan and more](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2jRkx2PNVr8), and who recently won an Oscar for Best Animated Short for Dear Basketball, which he co-directed with the late Kobe Bryant. Now, he brings us a musical adventure centered around a Chinese girl who builds a rocket ship and blasts off to the Moon in hopes of meeting a legendary Moon Goddess.
-Passing: It’s always interesting when an actor jumps behind the camera, and Rebecca Hall’s case is no exception. For her directorial debut, Hall chose to adapt Nella Larsen’s acclaimed novel set in Harlem in the 1920s, about two mixed race childhood friends (Ruth Negga and Tessa Thompson) who reunite in adulthood and become obsessed with one another's lives. With a premise that explores tough questions about race and sexuality, it looks like a tricky challenge for a first timer, but it would be more impressive if Hall manages to rise over the challenge.
-Prisoner 760: An interesting part of following the awards circuit is looking at when it's appropriate to talk about touchy subjects in recent history. I’m saying that because this next movie tells the real life tale of Mohamedou Ould Slahi (Tahar Rahim), a man who, despite not being charged or having a set trial, is held in custody at Guantanamo Bay, and turns towards a pair of lawyers (Jodie Foster and Shailene Woodley) to aid him. Based on the famous journal that the man wrote while he was being detained, the movie (that also counts with Benedict Cumberbatch) is directed by Kevin Macdonald who, a long time ago, helped Forest Whitaker win Best Actor for The Last King of Scotland. Could he get back in the race after almost 15 years of movies like State of Play?
-Raya and the Last Dragon: This year, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ bet for the Oscars is a fantasy tale set in a mysterious realm called Kumandra, where a warrior named Raya searches for the last dragon in the world. And that dragon has the voice of Awkwafina. Even though they missed out last Oscars when Frozen II got the cold shoulder by the Academy in Best Animated Feature, this premise looks interesting enough to merit a chance. One more thing: between last year’s Abominable, Over the Moon and this movie, there’s a clear connection of animated movies trying to appeal to Chinese sensibilities (and that sweet box office).
-Rebecca: It’s wild to think that the only time that Alfred Hitchcock made a film that won the Oscar for Best Picture was with 1940’s adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s psychological thriller novel, more muted and conventional than his more known classics. Now, Ben Wheatley and Netflix are giving the Gothic story a new spin, with Lily James playing the newly married young woman who finds herself battling the shadow of her husband's (Armie Hammer) dead first wife, the mysterious Rebecca. The story is a classic, and we have to see how much weird Wheatley stuff is in the mix.
-Red, White and Water: Between 2011 and 2014, Jennifer Lawrence was everywhere and people loved it. She was America’s sweetheart, the Oscar winner, Katniss Everdeen. But then, everything kinda fell. Those X-Men movies got worse and she looked tired of being in them, her anecdotes got less charming and more pandering to some, she took respectable risks that didn’t pay off with Red Sparrow and Mother!, and some people didn’t like that she said that it wasn’t nice to share private photos of her online. Now, she looks to get back to the Oscar race with a small project funded by A24 and directed by Lila Neugebauer in her film debut, about a soldier who comes back to the US after suffering a traumatic brain injury in Afghanistan. Also, Brian Tyree Henry is in this, and it would be amazing if he got nominated for something.
-Respect: You know what’s a surefire way to get Academy voters’ attention? Play a real singer! Rami Malek took a win last year for playing Freddie Mercury, Renee Zellweger just won the gold after portraying Judy Garland, and now Jennifer Hudson wants more Oscar love. Almost 15 years after taking Best Supporting Actress for her role in Dreamgirls, Hudson will try to get more by playing soul legend Aretha Franklin, in a biopic directed by first timer Liesl Tommy that practically screams “give me the gold”. How am I so sure? Well, see the teaser that they released in December (for a movie that opens in October), and tell me. It will work out better for Hudson than Cats, that’s for sure.
-Soul: Unless they really disappoint (I’m looking at you, The Good Dinosaur, Cars 2 and Cars 3), you can’t have the Oscars without inviting Pixar to the party. This year, they have two projects in the hopes of success. While in a few weeks we’ll see what happens with the fantasy family road trip of Onward, the studio’s biggest bet of the year clearly is the next existential animation written and directed by Pete Docter, who brought Oscar gold to his home with Up and Inside Out. The movie, which centers on a teacher (voice of Jamie Foxx) who dreams of becoming a jazz musician and, just as he’s about to get his big break, ends up getting into an accident that separates his soul from his body, had a promising first trailer, and it also promises a score by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, as well as new songs by Jon Batiste. The only downside so far for the marketing was the fact that the trailer reveal led people to notice a suspicious trend involving black characters when they lead an animated movie.
-Tenet: When Leonardo DiCaprio finally touched his Academy Award, an alarm went off in the mind of a portion of Internet users, who have made their next crusade to give themselves to the cause of getting Christopher Nolan some Oscar love. And his next blank check, an action thriller involving espionage and time travel, could pull off the same intersection of popcorn and prestige that made Inception both a box office hit and a critically acclaimed Oscar nominee. It helps to have a cast of impressive names like John David Washington, Elizabeth Debicki and Robert Pattinson, as well as a crew that includes Ludwig Goransson and Hoyte van Hoytema. In other words, if this becomes a hit, this could go for a huge number of nominations.
-The Devil All the Time: As you may have noticed by now, Netflix is leading the charge in possible Oscar projects. Another buzzy movie that comes from them is the new psychological thriller by Antonio Campos, a filmmaker known for delivering small and intimate but yet intense and terrifying dramas like Simon Killer and Christine. Using the novel by Donald Ray Pollock, Campos will follow non-linearly a cast of characters in Ohio between the end of World War II and the beginning of the Vietnam War, with the help of an interesting cast that includes Tom Holland, Sebastian Stan, Robert Pattinson, Mia Wasikowska, Eliza Scanlen, Bill Skarsgard, Jason Clarke and Riley Keough.
-The Eyes of Tammy Faye: After being known as a sketch comedy goofball because of The State, Wet Hot American Summer and Stella, Michael Showalter reinvented himself as a director of small and human dramedies like Hello, My Name is Doris and The Big Sick. For his next project, he’s gonna mix a little bit of both worlds, because he has before him the story of the televangelists Tammy Faye Bakker (Jessica Chastain, who has been really trying to recapture her early ‘10 awards run to no avail) and Jim Bakker (Andrew Garfield, who was previously nominated for Hacksaw Ridge, instead of Silence, because why). With a real life tale that involves Christian theme parks, fraud and conspiracies, this is the kind of loud small movie that Searchlight loves to parade around, especially as an actors showcase (Jojo Rabbit being the most recent example). The first image looks terrifying, by the way.
-The Father: It’s weird to be in the middle of February and say that there’s already a frontrunner for the Best Actor race at the next Oscars. After its premiere in Sundance a couple of weeks ago, every prognosticator pointed in the direction of Anthony Hopkins (recently nominated for Best Supporting Actor in The Two Popes), who delivers a harrowing portrayal of an old man grappling with his age as he develops dementia, causing pain to his beleaguered daughter (recent winner Olivia Colman, who also got praised). With reviews calling it a British answer to Amour (in other words: it’s a hard watch), Florian Zeller’s adaptation of his acclaimed play not only benefits from having Hopkins and Colman together as a selling point, because it was acquired by Sony Pictures Classics, a distributor with experience in getting Academy voters to watch adult movies with heavy themes. If you don’t believe me, watch how they got Julianne Moore a win for Still Alice, as well as recent nominations for Isabelle Huppert for Elle, Glenn Close for The Wife, and Antonio Banderas for Pain and Glory. They know the game, and they are going to hit hard for Hopkins and Colman.
-The French Dispatch: If you saw the trailer, we don’t need to dwell too much on the reasons. On the one hand, we have the style of Wes Anderson, a filmmaker who has become a name in both the critics circle and the casual viewer, with his last two movies (The Grand Budapest Hotel and Isle of Dogs) earning several Oscar nominations, including Best Picture for the one with Gustave H. Then, we have a long cast that goes from the director’s regulars like Bill Murray to new stars like Timothee Chalamet, and also includes people like Benicio del Toro. The only thing that could endanger the Oscar chances for this is that the story, an anthology set around a period comedy with an European riff on The New Yorker, will alienate the average Academy member.
-The Humans: There’s the prestige of a play, and then there’s the prestige of a Tony-winning play. Playwright Stephen Karam now gets to jump to the director’s chair to take his acclaimed 2016 one-act story to the big screen, and A24 is cutting the check. Telling the story of a family that gets together on Thanksgiving to commiserate about life, this adaptation will be led by original performer Jayne Houdyshell (who also won a Tony for her stage performance), who’ll be surrounded by Richard Jenkins, Beanie Feldstein, Amy Schumer, Steven Yeun and June Squibb. If it avoids getting too claustrophobic or stagey for the cinema, it will be a good contender.
-The Last Duel: Always speedy, Ridley Scott is working on his next possible trip to the Oscars. This time, it’s the telling of a true story in 14th-century France, where a knight (Matt Damon) accuses his former friend (Adam Driver) of raping his wife (Jodie Comer), with the verdict being determined by the titular duel. It’s a juicy story, but there was some concern when it seemed that the script was only being written by Damon and Ben Affleck (who’ll also appear in the film). A rape story written by them after the Weinstein revelations… not the best look. But then, it was revealed that they were writing the screenplay with indie figure Nicole Holofcener, who last year was nominated for an Oscar for her script for Can You Ever Forgive Me? Let’s hope that the story is told in a gripping but not exploitative way, and that it doesn’t reduce the role of Comer (who deserves more than some of the movie roles that she’s getting after Killing Eve) to a Hollywood stereotype.
-The Power of the Dog: We have to talk about the queen of the indie world, we have to talk about Jane Campion. More than a decade after her last movie, Bright Star, the Oscar and Palme d’Or winner for The Piano returns with a non-TV project (see Top of the Lake, people) thanks to Netflix, with a period drama centered around a family dispute between a pair of wealthy brothers in Montana, Phil (Benedict Cumberbatch) and George Burbank (Jesse Plemons), after the latter one marries a local widow (Kirsten Dunst). According to the synopsis, “a shocked and angry Phil wages a sadistic, relentless war to destroy her entirely using her effeminate son Peter as a pawn”. Can’t wait to see what that means.
-The Prom: Remember the Ryan Murphy blank check deal with Netflix that I mentioned earlier? Well, another of the projects in the first batch of announcements for the deal is a musical that he’ll direct, adapting the Tony-nominated show about a group of Broadway losers (now played by the one and only Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, Andrew Rannells and, uh, James Corden, for some reason) who try to find a viral story to get back in the spotlight, and end up going to a town in Indiana to help a lesbian high school student who has been banned from bringing her girlfriend to the prom. The show has been considered a fun and heartwarming tale of acceptance, so the movie could be an easy pick for an average Academy voter who doesn’t look too hard (and you know that the Golden Globes will nominate the shirt out of this). It’s funny how this comes out the same year than Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, and then it’s not funny realizing that Film Twitter will pit the two movies against each other.
-The Trial of the Chicago 7: After getting a taste of the director’s taste with Molly’s Game, Aaron Sorkin wants more. For his second movie, he’s tackling one of his specialties: a courtroom drama. And this one is a period movie centered around the trial on countercultural activists in the late ‘60s, which immediately attracts a campaign of how “important” this movie is today’s culture. To add the final blow, we have a cast that includes Sacha Baron Cohen, Eddie Redmayne, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jeremy Strong, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Frank Langella, William Hurt, Michael Keaton and Mark Rylance. If Sorkin can contain himself from going over the top (and with that cast, it would be so easy to surrender to bouts of screaming and winding speeches), this could be one of the top contenders.
-Those Who Wish Me Dead: Having made a good splash in the directorial waters with Wind River, Taylor Sheridan (also known for writing the Sicario movies, the Oscar-nominated Hell or High Water or that Yellowstone show that your uncle raves about on Facebook) returns with yet another modern Western. For this thriller based on the Michael Koryta novel, Angelina Jolie stars as a survival expert in the Montana wilderness who is tasked with protecting a teenager who witnessed a murder, while assassins are pursuing him and a wildfire grows closer.
-Untitled David O. Russell Project: Following the mop epic Joy, that came and went in theaters but still netted a Best Actress nomination for Jennifer Lawrence, the angriest director in Hollywood took a bit of a break (it didn’t help that he tried to do a really expensive show with Amazon starring Robert De Niro and Julianne Moore that fell apart when the Weinstein exposes sank everything). Now, he’s quickly putting together his return to the days of Oscar love that came with stuff like The Fighter, Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle, with a new movie that is set to star Christian Bale, Margot Robbie and Michael B. Jordan. Even though we don’t know many details (some people are saying the movie is called Amsterdam) except for the fact the movie hasn’t started shooting yet, David is a quick guy, so he’ll get it ready for the fall festival circuit. If there’s one thing that David O. Russell knows (apart from avoid getting cancelled for abusing people like Lily Tomlin, Amy Adams and his niece), it’s to make loud actor showcases.
-Untitled Nora Fingscheidt Project: When Bird Box became one of the biggest hits on Netflix history, the streamer decided to keep itself in the Sandra Bullock business. Sandy’s next project for Ted Sarandos is a drama where she plays a woman who is released from prison after serving time for a violent crime, and re-enters a society that refuses to forgive her past. To get redemption, she searches her younger sister she was forced to leave behind. With the direction of Fingscheidt, who comes from an acclaimed directorial debut with Systemsprenger (Germany’s submission to the last Academy Awards), and a cast that also includes Viola Davis, Vincent D’Onofrio and Jon Bernthal, this will also hopefully try its luck later this year.
-Untitled Paul Thomas Anderson Project: We don’t know if this movie will be ready for the end of the year (although last time, he managed to sneak Phantom Thread under the buzzer and earn several Oscar nominations, including Best Picture), but PTA is apparently gonna start to shoot it soon, with the backing of Focus Features. After several movies with prestige locations and intricate production design, Film Twitter’s Holy Spirit will go back to the San Fernando Valley in the 1970s, to tell the story of a high school student who is also a successful child actor.
-Stillwater: Tom McCarthy’s recent career is certainly puzzling. After delivering the weird lows of The Cobbler, he bounced back with the Best Picture winner that was Spotlight. And following that, he… helped produce the 13 Reasons Why series. And following that… he made Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made, a Disney+ original movie. Now, he’s back to the award race with a drama starring Matt Damon, who plays a father who rushes from Oklahoma to France to help his daughter (Abigail Breslin), who is in prison after being suspected for a murder she claims she didn’t commit.
-West Side Story: To close things, we have to see one of the possible big contenders of the season, Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of the iconic musical that translates Romeo and Juliet to the context of a street gang war in 1950s New York. While the decision to adapt again something that has been a classic both in Broadway and in movie theaters almost 60 years ago is a challenge, the idea of Spielberg doing a musical closer to the stage version with Tony Kushner as the writer is too tempting for the average Academy voter, who is already saving a spot in major categories in case Steven nails it in December. However, there’s two question marks. First, how well will Ansel Elgort and newcomer Rachel Zegler stand out in the roles of Tony and Maria? And second, will In the Heights steal some of the thunder of this movie by being, you know, more modern?

2019.05.19 07:12 fastzander The fans of nerd franchises (i.e… ‘Star Wars’, DC, ‘Game of Thrones’) need to shut the fuck up, already.

For the past several days, I have seen nothing, nothing whatsoever, except petulant whinges about assorted nerd franchises, left and right, on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Reddit, YouTube, and several dozen different film and/or television websites among others. “Sonic’s CGI sucks”, “David Benioff and D. B. Weiss are the wrong directors for Star Wars”, “season 8 of Game of Thrones sucks”, “Robert Pattinson is the wrong actor for Batman”, “Batwoman is SJW cringe”, blah blah… And now I, for one, am getting to the point where I’d like to load every copy of every nerd franchise onto a giant rocketship, along with every fan of every nerd franchise to boot, and then promptly launch that rocketship on a direct course into the core of the sun, all so that I never had to hear any of this shit ever again. I, for one, am getting to the point where I’d prefer it if no further installments whatsoever in any nerd franchise whatsoever were ever made again.
I’m fucking tired of this shit. I’m tired of the toxicity, tired of the negativity, tired of the immaturity, tired of the pettiness, tired of the narcissism, tired of the entitlement. I’m tired of the abuse, tired of the harassment, tired of the flame wars, tired of the infighting. I’m tired of the articles and the YouTube videos and the boycotts and the petitions. I’m tired of the demands that works be decanonized and remade (seriously, just who the fuck does anyone who does this think they are?). I’m tired of the Right proclaiming everything to be “SJW”, and I’m tired of the Left proclaiming everything to be racist/sexist. I’m tired of incidents such as Voltron: Legendary Defender fans stealing storyboards from the studio which produces it and threatening to release them unless the studio makes their preferred ship canon, and Spider-Man players harassing developers because the game doesn’t feature the suit from the Sam Raimi movies. Nothing’s ever good enough for these people, is it? It’s all so boring, so depressing, so exhausting, so predictable. It’s an endless, grating, inescapable gravy train of pointless, self-indulgent, unproductive slop. Just recalling all of this shit is making my skull throb and my blood pressure rise.
Listen up, you ignoramuses. When a franchise such as Star Wars or Game of Thrones has as many fans as it does, it’s statistically inevitable that any given new installment thereof is not going to appeal to all of them. And when, inevitably, a given new installment thereof doesn’t appeal to you, you just have to suck it up and fucking deal with it, buster. You do not get to rant and rave and demand that the studio remake the installment in question from scratch so that it does appeal to you. It is not physically possible for studios to adapt every individual fanfic which every individual fan has written in their heads. Has it not occurred to any of you that major corporations like Disney and Warner Bros. possess enormous, excellent market research divisions, and that as such, they probably know more about what’s going to play well with a supermajority of consumers than you do?
This shit is the dictionary definition of a first world problem. I’m tired of people acting as if any of this shit was an issue that actually mattered, as opposed to the inane, irrelevant, trivial nothingburgers that they are. These are works of fiction, for fuck’s sake! They’re about people who don’t exist and portray events which didn’t actually happen! Hundreds of millions of people around the world are starving right now, and yet people are in literal tears and ready to take up arms because they don’t like the plot of the latest season of a television series about dragons? Eat shit, already!
Rendering this phenomenon even more excruciating is the knowledge that it’s never going to stop. People are never going to stop bellyaching about the latest installment in every nerd franchise, are they? It’s no longer a mere possibility that people will hate and whinge about the latest Star Wars movie; it’s now a certainty. It’s now foreordained. People decided, in advance, that they were going to hate Star Wars: Episode IX the second The Last Jedi ended, want to hate it, are not willing to consider the possibility that they won’t hate it, and are going to hate it no matter what happens in it or what it’s about. This shit is going to happen in regards to Godzilla: King of the Monsters, in regards to Spider-Man: Far from Home and Birds of Prey, in regards to the D&D movie, in regards to Doctor Who season 12; and it was always going to from the second each of the above was announced. I mean, I can already see the YouTube videos and the petitions, already know just exactly which jargon and buzzwords will be used. “King Ghidorah’s CGI sucks”, “Birds of Prey is SJW”, “The Eternals doesn’t have enough LGBT representation”. These people are never going to get tired of the smell of their own farts. The gravy train is just gonna continue hurtling down the track, brakes off, into the foreseeable, indefinite future. DCEU stans are still gonna be clamoring for the goddamn Snyder cut in fucking 2030, aren’t they?
Never, not in a million years, would I want to contribute to the development of an installment in a nerd franchise these days. Never, not in a million years, would I want to be an actor in a superhero movie, a director of a Star Wars movie, a developer of a video game, a writer of a comic or so on these days. What, so the same thing that happened to Jake Lloyd, Ahmed Best, Leslie Jones, Finn Jones, James Gunn, Daisy Ridley, Kelly Marie Tran, Rian Johnson, Kathleen Kennedy, Brie Larson and David Thier among others can happen to me? So that a small army of indignant babies all triggered over the way they perceive me to have infringed against their pwecious, pwecious franchise about dragons or wizards or capes or vampires or laser swords and subject me to a yearlong campaign of abuse? So that they can harass me off social media and make 500 libelous YouTube videos about me? “Fans” these days don’t deserve the franchises they consume. They’re not appreciative enough of the thousands of hours of work and the hundreds of millions of dollars that goes into creating them. They’re like spoilt children, screaming for sweets, and you don’t reward a spoilt child screaming for sweets by giving them sweets. Just once – once – I’d like to see a content creator who’s become the figurehead of the latest internet temper tantrum push back and take revenge by doing something to inflict genuine grief on their harassers, even if it meant getting fired for it. The developers of the Spider-Man PS4 game, for example? I’d have loved it if they’d uploaded YouTube videos of themselves dropping every file containing the Sam Raimi suit into the recycle bin before turning to face the screen and extend a middle finger to it.

2019.05.19 05:29 fastzander The fans of nerd franchises (i.e… ‘Star Wars’, DC, ‘Game of Thrones’) need to shut the fuck up, already.

For the past several days, I have seen nothing, nothing whatsoever, except petulant whinges about assorted nerd franchises, left and right, on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Reddit, YouTube, and several dozen different film and/or television websites among others. “Sonic’s CGI sucks”, “David Benioff and D. B. Weiss are the wrong directors for Star Wars”, “season 8 of Game of Thrones sucks”, “Robert Pattinson is the wrong actor for Batman”, “Batwoman is SJW cringe”, blah blah… And now I, for one, am getting to the point where I’d like to load every copy of every nerd franchise onto a giant rocketship, along with every fan of every nerd franchise to boot, and then promptly launch that rocketship on a direct course into the core of the sun, all so that I never had to hear any of this shit ever again. I, for one, am getting to the point where I’d prefer it if no further installments whatsoever in any nerd franchise whatsoever were ever made again.
I’m fucking tired of this shit. I’m tired of the toxicity, tired of the negativity, tired of the immaturity, tired of the pettiness, tired of the narcissism, tired of the entitlement. I’m tired of the abuse, tired of the harassment, tired of the flame wars, tired of the infighting. I’m tired of the articles and the YouTube videos and the boycotts and the petitions. I’m tired of the demands that works be decanonized and remade (seriously, just who the fuck does anyone who does this think they are?). I’m tired of the Right proclaiming everything to be “SJW”, and I’m tired of the Left proclaiming everything to be racist/sexist. I’m tired of incidents such as Voltron: Legendary Defender fans stealing storyboards from the studio which produces it and threatening to release them unless the studio makes their preferred ship canon, and Spider-Man players harassing developers because the game doesn’t feature the suit from the Sam Raimi movies. Nothing’s ever good enough for these people, is it? It’s all so boring, so depressing, so exhausting, so predictable. It’s an endless, grating, inescapable gravy train of pointless, self-indulgent, unproductive slop. Just recalling all of this shit is making my skull throb and my blood pressure rise.
Listen up, you ignoramuses. When a franchise such as Star Wars or Game of Thrones has as many fans as it does, it’s statistically inevitable that any given new installment thereof is not going to appeal to all of them. And when, inevitably, a given new installment thereof doesn’t appeal to you, you just have to suck it up and fucking deal with it, buster. You do not get to rant and rave and demand that the studio remake the installment in question from scratch so that it does appeal to you. It is not physically possible for studios to adapt every individual fanfic which every individual fan has written in their heads. Has it not occurred to any of you that major corporations like Disney and Warner Bros. possess enormous, excellent market research divisions, and that as such, they probably know more about what’s going to play well with a supermajority of consumers than you do?
This shit is the dictionary definition of a first world problem. I’m tired of people acting as if any of this shit was an issue that actually mattered, as opposed to the inane, irrelevant, trivial nothingburgers that they are. These are works of fiction, for fuck’s sake! They’re about people who don’t exist and portray events which didn’t actually happen! Hundreds of millions of people around the world are starving right now, and yet people are in literal tears and ready to take up arms because they don’t like the plot of the latest season of a television series about dragons? Eat shit, already!
Rendering this phenomenon even more excruciating is the knowledge that it’s never going to stop. People are never going to stop bellyaching about the latest installment in every nerd franchise, are they? It’s no longer a mere possibility that people will hate and whinge about the latest Star Wars movie; it’s now a certainty. It’s now foreordained. People decided, in advance, that they were going to hate Star Wars: Episode IX the second The Last Jedi ended, want to hate it, are not willing to consider the possibility that they won’t hate it, and are going to hate it no matter what happens in it or what it’s about. This shit is going to happen in regards to Godzilla: King of the Monsters, in regards to Spider-Man: Far from Home and Birds of Prey, in regards to the D&D movie, in regards to Doctor Who season 12; and it was always going to from the second each of the above was announced. I mean, I can already see the YouTube videos and the petitions, already know just exactly which jargon and buzzwords will be used. “King Ghidorah’s CGI sucks”, “Birds of Prey is SJW”, “The Eternals doesn’t have enough LGBT representation”. These people are never going to get tired of the smell of their own farts. The gravy train is just gonna continue hurtling down the track, brakes off, into the foreseeable, indefinite future. DCEU stans are still gonna be clamoring for the goddamn Snyder cut in fucking 2030, aren’t they?
Never, not in a million years, would I want to contribute to the development of an installment in a nerd franchise these days. Never, not in a million years, would I want to be an actor in a superhero movie, a director of a Star Wars movie, a developer of a video game, a writer of a comic or so on these days. What, so the same thing that happened to Jake Lloyd, Ahmed Best, Leslie Jones, Finn Jones, James Gunn, Daisy Ridley, Kelly Marie Tran, Rian Johnson, Kathleen Kennedy, Brie Larson and David Thier among others can happen to me? So that a small army of indignant babies all triggered over the way they perceive me to have infringed against their pwecious, pwecious franchise about dragons or wizards or capes or vampires or laser swords and subject me to a yearlong campaign of abuse? So that they can harass me off social media and make 500 libelous YouTube videos about me? “Fans” these days don’t deserve the franchises they consume. They’re not appreciative enough of the thousands of hours of work and the hundreds of millions of dollars that goes into creating them. They’re like spoilt children, screaming for sweets, and you don’t reward a spoilt child screaming for sweets by giving them sweets. Just once – once – I’d like to see a content creator who’s become the figurehead of the latest internet temper tantrum push back and take revenge by doing something to inflict genuine grief on their harassers, even if it meant getting fired for it. The developers of the Spider-Man PS4 game, for example? I’d have loved it if they’d uploaded YouTube videos of themselves dropping every file containing the Sam Raimi suit into the recycle bin before turning to face the screen and extend a middle finger to it.
I’m going to close my diatribe with an admonishment to the fans of nerd franchises these days to try and do a few things. Please, fellas, I beg of you. Stop it with the articles and the YouTube videos and the petitions and the boycotts. Stop demanding that things being decanonized and remade. Accept that, eventually, and inevitably, there will be an installment of the franchise you’re a fan of which you don’t like, and once that installment comes, and you don’t like it, just fucking deal it. Bite your tongue instead of ejaculating your opinions all over the internet, and spare the rest of us who are tired of getting covered in your splurge from getting covered in it just this one time. Acknowledge that whichever issue is at hand probably isn’t of any actual real-world significance. Disney is not going to remake a Star Wars movie just because a bunch of an anonymous internet nobodies clicked a button on a website, which means doing these things does not, and is not going to, accomplish anything other than to annoy the everloving piss of a lot of other people and make you look like a whiny, entitled idiot; a stereotype straight out of The Big Bang Theory.
