Months of Meryl: The Post (2017)

John and Matthew are watching every single live-action film starring Meryl Streep.

#52 — Katharine “Kay” Graham, pioneering Washington Post publisher who authorized the printing of the Pentagon Papers.

John: Since it was first announced in March of 2017, deep into the first hundred days of the Trump presidency, The Post moved at a breakneck speed from rewriting to shooting to post-production before it quickly arrived in theaters in December of that year. Spielberg had paused production on his historical drama The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara and after reading a spec script by Liz Hannah, set the gears into motion on The Post, assembling his usual team, along with two screen legends who had never before shared a single frame. This urgent sense of timeliness is palpable in The Post, which is both a riveting period piece about a landmark historical moment and a rousing paean to the free press in our distressing present.

The Forgotten: Spook Show

  • MUBI
Actor Ivan Dixon was a favorite of Rod Serling's, who cast him in The Twilight Zone twice. Dixon was black, and Serling fought to get minorities on TV in roles that weren't defined only by race. Dixon went on to become a prolific TV director himself, and made two features. Trouble Man (1972) is a not-particularly-ambitious blacksploitation pic that does everything it sets out to do with efficiency. The following year's The Spook Who Sat by the Door aims much, much higher, telling an epic, politically-charged story spanning years and leaping from Langley to Chicago. "Spook": racist epithet for an African American. Slang term for a spy. The set-up: a beleaguered politician decides to divert criticism by accusing the CIA of racism: they have no Black agents. So a recruitment drive is started, but many within the organization don't intend to allow any of the applicants to succeed. Most

Ready Player One

Lifelong gaming fan Steven Spielberg goes all-in for motion capture, with much different results than The Adventures of Tintin. It’s an ode to 1980s videogame fads and pop culture that could be re-titled ‘Astounding Adventures in Licensing.’ It’s Star Wars, Tron and Avatar mashed together for young teens, and more interesting than it ought to be.

The Post

Steven Spielberg’s excellent Pentagon Papers exposé thriller comes straight from the facts. If the project wasn’t begun in 2014 we’d think it was a direct response to today’s attacks on the news media. We’ll take it as that anyway. It’s a fine performing showcase for Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks, and the direction creates exciting drama without a single car chase, assassination attempt or superhero.

Oscars flashback: Daniel Day-Lewis (‘Lincoln’) sets record with 3rd win as Best Actor [Watch]

Oscars flashback: Daniel Day-Lewis (‘Lincoln’) sets record with 3rd win as Best Actor [Watch]
After his sweeping victory with “There Will Be Blood” in 2007, many thought Daniel Day-Lewis had reached his zenith. What could top that performance?

In 2012 he was given the title role in Steven Spielberg’s epic “Lincoln.” Once again he immersed himself in the role, spending an entire year on research of Abraham Lincoln alone. For this performance as America’s greatest statesmen, Day-Lewis became the first and only winner of three Best Actor Academy Awards, ranking behind only Katharine Hepburn for the most acting Oscar wins in a lead category (she has four).

Watch the video above as the only living actress with three acting wins, Meryl Streep, presents an emotional Day-Lewis with the trophy at the 2013 ceremony.

2018 Ace Eddies Awards offer preview of Oscars [Updating Live]

The American Cinema Editors handed out the Eddie Awards on Friday (Jan. 26). Oscar watchers were in attendance for the ceremony at the Beverly Hilton as they are keenly aware that Ace is aces as one of the best indicators of which film takes home the Best Picture Oscar

Since 1990, the film that came up with an Ace went on to win the top prize at the Academy Awards 17 times. And in seven of the 10 years when the Ace barometer was wrong, the Eddie champ was at least a contender for Best Picture, including last year when both the drama winner (“Arrival”) and the comedy/musical champ (“La La Land”) were among the eight Best Picture nominees that lost the top Oscar to “Moonlight.”

The Shape of Water bests Three Billboards at 2018 Critics’ Choice Awards, while Big Little Lies leads TV winners

Guillermo del Toro’s fantasy romance The Shape of Water emerged as the big winner from the 23rd Critics’ Choice Awards, scooping four awards including Best Picture and Best Director. Meanwhile, HBO’s Big Little Lies dominated the television categories, also winning four prizes.

The Shape of Water defeated Oscars frontrunner Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri in the majority of the categories in which they competed, though Frances McDormand beat Sally Hawkins to the Best Actress prize and Sam Rockwell was crowned Best Supporting Actor for his work in Irish filmmaker Martin McDonagh’s incendiary drama.

Elsewhere, Gary Oldman followed up his Golden Globe victory with another Best Actor prize for his performance as Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour, while Jordan Peele added his name firmly to the Oscar conversation with a screenplay victory for Get Out.

Ace Eddie nominations include “Dunkirk” and “I, Tonya”

This morning, the American Cinema Editors announced their nominees for 68th annual Ace Eddie Awards. This is one of the most important guilds to take notice of, due to how Best Film Editing at the Academy Awards can often link up to Best Picture. It’s not a perfect correlation, but when looking for hints as to what voters might do, anything helps. Here, they’ve nominated almost all of the likely Best Picture nominees, so that’s a help. In fact, outside of Baby Driver and Molly’s Game, I’d say the other eight contenders here are among the favorites to make the big lineup. Time will tell, of course, but Ace is working from a list of frontrunners this year, that’s for sure. Below you can see the nominees for the Ace Eddie. Last year, the big winners were Arrival and La La Land, though Hacksaw Ridge
