Films of Late

I am a big movie fan and usually watch the Oscars to see which movies and movie stars win what awards. During the build-up for tonight’s Oscars, all I hear is how the film Everything Everywhere All at Once is the favorite to win the best film award. Its actors are also nominated for best actor and actress.

I viewed the film last night on Showtime. To say I was disappointed is an understatement. It is one of the worst films I have ever seen. My hate for the film continued to build the longer I watched it and I would have changed channels if my spouse did not insist on seeing it to the end. She disliked the film, too, but figured that after investing two hours with this turkey, she mighty as well see it all.

In my opinion, a much better nominated film is The Banshees of Inisherin, but I don't have high hopes that it will win anything.

And so it goes.


  1. Gee… I really liked it. It was funny, it was sad. It hit a lot of buttons.

  2. By an odd series of events, I happened to have seen both. That seems rare given previous nominations, but maybe that also says something about how films are available now.

    FWIW, I enjoyed both films. Banshee certainly puts in on the dark in dark comedy and has brilliant performances. I thought Everywhere was very good as well as for different reasons. It's all subjective though! 🙂
