    I know I’m going to get a lot of flak about this.
    Saw- Maestro-Slow moving and Boring. Bradley Cooper needs to get over himself.
    Saw-Saltburn-One good scene. Like watching Paint Dry.
    Saw-May/December-Another Slow Moving film. But good performances.
    Saw-Nyad-This one’s a Winner. Great Performance By Annette Benning.
    Saw-Unless you’re a Barbie Fan-Awful
    The only worthwhile Nomination is the Fellow Travelers series on Showtime.
    Great Performance by Matt Bomer-Great Cast-Great Everything.

    Totally agree with you Patrick, Maestro was so slow moving that I felt like I’d watched a 3 hour movie. I was surprised to find it was only a little over 2 hours long.
    Saltburn was not as clever as the filmmaker would like to think and also really long.
    May December. Good performance from Charles Melton. Otherwise, boring.
    I hated Barbie. Wanted to walk out of the theater within the first 10 minutes.
    Nyad was good. The performances made it worthwhile.
    I really enjoyed Society of the Snow. What a predicament they were in.
    Air was soooo boring. Not sure why they muted all the colors and dressed everyone so badly, made the past seem really dull. I thought the offices were really drab and depressing to look at, and then when Michael Jordan visited, it turned out the part of the building that was for public consumption was really nice. They should have made the whole movie look that way, no one wants to stare at drab for 2 hours.
    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 was one of my favorite movies of the year. Loved it. Should have had more nominations, especially in the writing categories.

    This article is claiming that BEAU IS AFRAID is actually one of the best films of the year?!? That movie was an atrocity. One of the worst movies I’ve ever seen.
