I am glad Parasite won most of the awards, it does deserve them all but I feel like there was a fair bit of bias against The Irishman. I really thought Pesci would have best supporting actor locked.

Once upon a time in hollywood is exactly what some crtitics described - tarantino's love letter to hollywood.  If you watch it expecting a plot or something, one might get disappointed.  I went in with an open mind, and damn, each scene oozes style and substance - whether that fight scene with bruce and cliff or the scene where leo gets back his acting chops , the short but hilarious snippets of his italian sphagetti's , and finally the finale to just bring everything into one gigantic explosion.  I mean, I can't believe anyone else could've pulled this off except for tarantino.  It requires a real genius to keep the leading lady completely disconnected from the main plot until the last 10 mins !

 

Might watch it sometime later or even buy a bluray .... felt its that good !

So Uncut Gems was really good.

I have to admit that I'm not the biggest Adam Sandler fan. I usually find him annoying and that didn't seem to change at the beginning of this movie. It was almost insufferable with an abysmal soundtrack playing loudly over people shouting over each other. 

But I stuck with it and I'm glad I did. The movie gets a whole lot better as it goes along.

Adam Sandler was good too. His character isn't exactly likeable but the film weirdly made me root for him somehow.

So yeah, do give the movie a watch. It's on Netflix.

Wouldn't be surprised if there is significant bias against The Irishman. There is a dispute going on between Netflix and the various theater owners/groups. And I doubt the Academy would ever do anything to p*ss off theater associations who are both major financers and revenue generators in the film industry. 

 

That said Parasyte is still an amazing film and still deserves all the awards it got.

Re-watched Contagion after a long time, coz ... well it's the season of the virus :/

Arguably the most accurate film when it comes to a new virus outbreak and how the modern world deals with it.

Also shows how fragile our existence is, a novel virus, couple of quick mutations and half of us are gone.

Ensemble cast and very well made.
