I was fortunate enough to have seen almost all the movies being nominated for Best Picture  (as well as a number of the other less anticipated categories) this year. So it made me smile to see Parasite take the win. It was such a good film, and I’m glad it’s getting the attention it deserves. JoJo Rabbit was also good, so it winning Best Adapted Screenplay was also satisfying. And of course, who could forget Joaquin Phoenix’s phenomenal portrayal as Joker?

On the one hand, I wanted John Williams to win the score Oscar to celebrate the fact that he concluded a nine-movie series across almost forty years.

On the other hand, RoS was probably his weakest, IMO. And the movie still makes me mad.

That movie had a few good tracks.  I’m really partial to the one that played when Rey reaches out to all the Jedi of the past. It was my favorite piece in the film, as was that one bit which mixed Leia’s theme with another which I can’t remember. I think it played during the scene where Kylo communicates telepathically with Rey on Exegol. Though I’m not sure.

Well, even a weak John Williams score still sounds great. ;)

That it does.  8)

Anyway, I just realized The Lighthouse wasn’t nominated for Best Picture. I could of sworn it was, but apparently my mind misremembered that fact. I’m pretty shocked, since it generated a lot of positive buzz when it came out.

I recommend that anyone who hasn’t seen the film, do so. It’s pretty dang good. Robert Pattinson and Wilem  Dafoe both give outstanding performances, and the movie is just so atmospheric. You could probably learn a lot about conveying tone by studying this movie. It’s just pretty weird at times, not gonna lie. Watching Robert Pattinson....uhm, how should I put it....? Relieve stress?? Yeah. All I know is that I didn’t need to see that. I understand  the thematic significance of it all, but still!

Plus, the memes are pretty funny. So there’s that.

Anyway, last year was a good year for movies I say. Still got to see Ford vs. Ferrari though.
