If you're looking for a good "family film" (fair warning, there are a few f-words) that's a bit above and beyond the typical, here's a good choice.
Nomadland hits theaters and is up on Hulu today. Sure to be nominated for multiple Oscars, this is supposed to be fantastic. I'm really looking forward to it.
That seems to be the general consensus from other I've read that have seen it as well.We saw Raya tonight. A solid Disney animation entry. The plot was not exactly surprising, but it held together well, had both tender and funny moments, and was spectacularly “drawn”.
and stovetop popcorn tastes better too.
Anyone seen Mank? Should I watch Citizen Kane again beforehand? I haven't seen CK in, oof, probably 25 years, so I've forgotten most of it. (Citizen Kane is on HBO Max, btw.)
It felt like it was made solely for the purpose of garnering Oscar nominations. Because if there's anything Hollywood/the Academy loves, it's movies about making movies in old Hollywood.Watch Citizen Kane. Skip Mank. But seriously, it’s a gorgeous looking movie, but it plays like the pet project it is (Fincher’s late father wrote the screenplay), and apart from a few tally scenes, it never gets off the ground. I suppose there was a good story in there somewhere, but it didn’t grab me. And I’m a huge Welles and Kane fan. Those unfamiliar with the behind-the-scenes story will be totally lost.
