    I don't actually know anyone who likes it.
    You know me

    I liked the film and enjoyed watching it.

    Spike's speech was embarrassing
    Going into tonight, I was most looking forward to Spike getting an award and taking the mic. Huge missed opportunity. Man, he made Michael Moore sound like Winston Churchill.

    -Spike was caught up in excitement which took away from whatever he had in mind to say, because it was a pretty bad speech. Still cool to see someone overdue finally win. Seeing Samuel get excited for him and a standing ovation is what I will remember.

    -The show moved fast, but can't really say there's anything memorable about it. It stuck to the awards at least. I imagine that the producers saw this happening, which caused them to try and shuffle things into the commercial, but obviously got pushback. This is a show for people who were rooting for a movie.

    -Having no host is fine. Keep it to the presenters.

    -Funniest presenters were probably Awkwafina and Mulaney.

    -Olivia Colman probably was the deserving win (didn't see The Wife). I wish I saw a Glen reaction.

    -Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga can end their charade of liking each other.

    Maybe. Haven't seen it. Though I might now, to see what the fuss is about. But then I said that about The Artist and The King's Speech.

    The best editing win surprises me. I'm trying to understand it... Even Green Book is a far better-edited movie in its progress to the South. BlackKklansman and Vice definitely stick out as the best of the five...

    I think it would be pretty damn difficult to get me to watch King's Speech or the Artist ever again.

    What I love is how movie discussion these days is just a mammoth shit fight between groups:

    (1) old, fuddy-duddy Academy types
    (2) SJW cultural guardians
    (3) Gatekeeping Letterboxd/reddit quasi-cinemaphiles
    (4) Mindless mainstream consumers

    Old-school critics are almost dead, online critics as a group are split between groups (2) and (3), while I tend to place rabid, mindless fanboys in group (4) - their consumption is just more narrow and often more toxic. There is some overlap between (1) and (4), though (1) tends to push back against group (2) and (4) tends to push back against (3). But pretty much, analysis of film in and of itself has faded away, and it has all become the four groups reviewing each other using individual films as forums for bitching.

    Black Panther winning score (Ludwig!), production design, and costume were all very deserved. First time ever a superhero film has won Best Score. That's insane.

    I like Chang, too. Odie Henderson is a frequent contributor to RogerEbert.com; he's usually worth reading.

    But with those two articles, I found the writing vibrant and the thinking weak.

    Here's another: https://www.nbcnews.com/think/opinio...ple-ncna938886

    I don't know who Jenni Miller is, but Jesus. (I'm finding this stuff via twitter.)

    The 2's are the worst and I question if they even watch some of the movies they hate and love.

    That's a pretty accurate summation though.

    In looking at twitter and my own facebook, it can't be a good thing for 2018 movies when the teaser of The Irishman is one of the heavier discussion moments.

    I have zero desire to see Green Book. I am most happy about Colman, Spidey, and Lee winning. The show works fine without a host, and the idea of it being on streaming only sounds bloody awful. No thanks.

    You Can't Take it with You, Gone with the Wind, All About Eve, The Bridge on the River Kwai, The Sound of Music, Slumdog Millionaire, The King's Speech, and The Artist also suck.
    I like some of those, haven't seen some of those, but certainly love The Bridge on the River Kwai. And it is critically revered, which by no means indicates you should too of course.

    How does it suck? Or is it more that another movie was more worthy that year?

    There were some snubs during the In Memoriam bit. Donen is perhaps inevitable, he will probably get his due next year, but how about Sondra Locke, Gary Kurtz, Verne Troyer, R. Lee Ermey, Dick Miller?

    Based on his win, I'm guessing he was already drunk, and he's always animated.
