Awards for 2022 movies

Post by skimpole »

The TCM board had a thread for movie awards. One problem was that they didn't distinguish quite which year they were talking about it, so the thread for 2021 movies kept going for the 2022 movies. So ideally all awards news in this thread should be for this year's movies.

RRR, while sporting some dazzling sp fx is a completely ridiculous OTT heavy-handed piece of cliched comic book moustache-twirling nonsense. I find it hard to believe that any 'intelligent' critic form New York would fail to see that, but hey, I am now a registered old geezer.

hadn't heard of 'RRR' before, so had to google it.....& found this @ wiki

"Calling RRR "bigger than Ben-Hur," Deadline Hollywood's Stephanie Bunbury wrote: "RRR is one action crescendo after another, never dull but not exhausting either."[311] In her review for Polygon, Katie Rife stated: "RRR is a busy movie, full of kinetic camerawork, bustling crowd scenes, elaborate set design, expensive-looking CGI, and loud sound effects."[312] Siddhant Adlakha of IndieWire praised Rajamouli's work, M. M. Keeravani's music and acting performances of lead actors. He further wrote that RRR outshines even the director's previous venture Baahubali.[313]

Reviewing the film for The Austin Chronicle, Josh Hurtado called RRR a "bromantic action nirvana." Hurtado stated that Rajamouli turned a "patriotic fantasy" into an "incredibly entertaining reality for fans of big action, big emotions, and big laughs."[314] Joe Leydon in his review for Variety felt RRR was "bigger-than-life and bolder-than-mainstream action-adventure epic."

As usual in these times I have not seen ANY of the nominated movies, and haven't even heard of most of them. :lol: Well, I did see Top Gun and I plan to watch Glass Onion once I finally get around to watching Knives Out first. The rest I won't be checking out. "Nope" looked ridiculous and "Everything Everywhere..." looked confusing. I didn't think the new Avatar movie was out yet to make any "best of" lists, but ok. The rest are new to me.

Much like Everything Everywhere All at Once, I read a lot of hype for RRR early this year, and ended up not really caring for either. They had their moments, but too many cringeworthy elements, or heavy-handed bits, that they both became too much, and I was glad when they were over.

As someone else said, maybe I'm just officially too old now to get them.

I saw Top Gun: Maverick and felt the same as I did for Top Gun, which is not much. I don't get the love for either of them, although I know the latter one was considered a godsend for exhibitors.

I keep fairly well versed in modern film, so I'm aware of all of the films listed, but I know the least about Aftersun, only that it has garnered a lot of praise.
Watching until the end.

I admit to not thinking much of AO Scott's reviews ever since his 2014 review for Magic of the Moonlight was more of a screed against its director Woody Allen, then an actual review for the film.

Re, RRR: It's the OTT moustache-twirling depiction of all the British as pointlessly cruel oppressors who delight in beating the s*** out of women, children and anyone of colour for no reason whatsovever which I thought was just disqualifying as taking it at all serious.
The film was a dreadful joke made by people with the sensibility of a 10 year year old. It really speaks to the dumbing down of film 'critics' if they fail to see flaws as basic as this because they are being dazzled with a giant special effect ride. I found Top Gun Maverick just about as bad. I couldn't imagine reading its dialogue written on a page. It was like it was written by a cave dweller.

RRR wouldn't be the first film like that to have a cartoonish depiction of villains; Promising Young Woman was up for Best Picture a few years back, and almost without exception, all the men in the film were depicted as vermin, and it was especially telling when the film had to make the picture -perfect boyfriend into a monster too.

Such films get passes because critics agree so much with the message that they neglect considering everything else.

Not surprised that the dialogue in the new Top Gun stinks. All visuals, no substance. Just like the original

Your post just reminded me of another benefit of the board being gone. We can finally discuss movies about British history without hearing how Britain and “Church Swill” are Satan every five seconds.

I have seen Alcarras and didn't think that much of it.
