RE: How are you ranking the Academy Award Nominated films

For me, among the list of nominees, the one I liked all around was Tar, but I love classical music and it is rare to see it treated so seriously in a movie. I was surprised how much I liked Top Gun, and Avatar was a visual delight, but neither will or should win Best Picture. I was not a huge fan of Everything Everywhere- I think the multiverse has been done to death and done better by Rick and Morty. Women Talking seemed like it would have made a good talky stage play, not cinematic or very interesting to me. Banshees has a lot going for it, but I don't think it will quite win. I think Everything Everywhere and All Quiet are the ones with momentum. All Quiet swept the BAFTAs and it is extremely well done, an old fashioned war movie with a "war is hell" message that always resonates. I expect it probably to win.
