RE: 2020 Oscars Thread

I've seen 7 of the nominees.

I avoided Joker because I avoid comic book movies, but when I saw it, it was only very tangentially a comic book movie, much more an homage to Taxi Driver and King of Comedy. Phoenix does a remarkable unique psychopath and deserves all awards. And I kind of loved this. But no chance for best picture. Too dark.

Once Upon a Time is long and digressive, filled with Tarantino dialogue, and would make a fine best picture. Although IMO it is far from his best work.

The Irishman was a good return to Scorcese mob world, but again, he's done it far better in the past. Doubt it will win.

Little Women was great, but it won't win.

My own choice would be Parasite, a movie that surprises at every turn. It is rare to see such an original bizarre story that is also completely entertaining. It just might win, but again, it goes pretty dark, and it is in Korean, which means many people won't even watch it.

Have not yet seen 1917, it seems to have a lot of momentum now.
