    Pity it’s been shelved rather than put on ice.

    You want to see a really good OdeH film? Watch "The Snake Pit".

    I've only seen it once, but that was just a few years ago. It does have some redeeming qualities (generally good performances, Olivia de Havilland, and of course the score), but overall I found it not very good even for what it is. And what it is is a film that seems like its depiction of race issues and its stance on the civil war must surely have been at least dubious even at the time it was released. From what I recall, even giving it the benefit of doubt, the protagonist's attitudes seemed "problematic" far beyond what was apparently intended to me a character fault.
     
    The score is good, of course, but I've never actually had much use for the full thing. The standard concert suite is usually enough for me. (But that probably goes for a lot of Steiner scores)

    I wanted to understand as much as I could about the procedure as possible...I think it's important for my job to understand the inner workings of the work that we do...well not that I do, but the work that is done by people...where I also work... The work of my colleagues.

    Bodies Bodies Bodies
     
    Wow!  This movie took me by total surprise.  For a lot of the runtime, I wasn't really into it.  The setup is that a bunch of rich 20-something are having a weekend party in a mansion, when they start being killed one by one and the remaining people have to figure out who the killer is.  This is tied in in a fun way to a game they played earlier in the evening called "bodies bodies bodies", where one person was the "killer" and one a "victim", and they all crawled around in the dark until someone found the body and the remaining plays had to guess who it was.  There is also all kinds of various tensions between different guests for different romantic or personal reasons, and a guest mentioned who was there the night before but left after a fight....
     
    I liked the actors and premise, but I guess my probably with a lot of the movie was that it wasn't funny enough.  Rachel Sennott and Pete Davidson seemed to be the only people having fun, with the rest caught up in their various dramas.  But as the movie went on and the bodies piled up, I was getting more into it, and then the final reveal at the end was so clever and hilarious, that the movie won me over as a whole. 
     
    This is one of the rare movies I think would actual take on a whole new fun level on second watch, now that you know everything going on.
     
    It's on Netflix

    ALL IS TRUE - A beautifully directed and acted film by Kenneth Branagh about the old Shakespeare. I loved it.

    Very disappointed that Christopher Nolan’s Oscar night has been so temporally conventional. They could have mixed up the order, or had the winners return their awards rather than accept them or something.

    It wouldn't have to be staged. Instead of everyone sitting formally in rows of seats, you'd just have all the film-makers playing with their toys on the floor.

    Only if it wasn't staged  The Moonlight disaster was so funny precisely because it was unscripted and the situation escaped their control.

    If Al Pacino had any sense of fun he would have announced Maestro and then backtracked just as Bradley Cooper reached out for his trophy.

    No "normal" Oscar ceremony can ever hope to be as fun, memorable and hilarious as the Will Smith Slap or the La La Land/Moonlight disaster, no matter how many nude John Cenas they put on screen.

    Curious that Maestro was nominated for Best Sound. Were the orchestral scenes recorded live on set or something?
