some of these newbies are lowering the bar big time here from what great members we had in the past.

I'm liking some of the new additions, but there are always a few really bad ones that pop up when there's an influx of new members...

Pretty much every post this guy has made so far has been dogshit. If this is the type of guy that some people imagine when they think of PTA fans, I can understand why we have a bad rep. It's really unfortunate.

FilmCell, I hope you start educating yourself on understanding people before making such a bigoted comment. That kind of crap belongs nowhere on this forum and you ought to be ashamed of yourself.

I'm disheartented that such a person would come to resemble our fanbase. It's not hard to get concern when I made a thread about our demographic because select people think we acted in the manner of the poster.

The issue with the Jennifer Lawrence situation is she has a Best Picture vote and doesn't even give the film a chance. Anyone who judges a film on three minutes shouldn't get to vote. 99% of the Academy does this which is one of primary reasons why it's all bullshit, but just because other people are pulling that bullshit doesn't excuse Jennifer Lawrence. She deserves any flack she gets for this. As a fellow artist she should realize how disrespectful it is to publicly judge a full work of art based on a very small sample of it. She probably would not be happy if PTA watched one scene from mother! and then went off about how she should win the Razzie. If she doesn't like the movie, that's her right, but she shouldn't vote for Best Picture without watching it and she doesn't need to bash it publicly.

i think he's the guy who said "They're still giving Oscars to little Ronnie Howard with Beautiful Mind (Laughs in the audience)" and there's no crying in baseball. i'm 100% positive he's not crying.

A few critics only watched 3 minutes of Phantom Thread and then wrote sweeping, generalizing reviews? Didn't know that. How is NOT watching a movie and then critiquing it for being problematic towards women a "perfectly valid response?" Enlighten us.

Ironically, if Ms. Lawrence would've pulled her head away from binge watching episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians and watched the film, she'd see that the characters played by both Vicky Krieps and Leslie Manville are strong, powerful women who eventually go toe-to-toe with Daniel Day Lewis and essentially control him. But, the good news is, now that she's insulted him, Paul won't hire this dull redneck in one of his films and we'll get the twin joys of never having her spoil a PTA picture with her generic performances AND get more discoveries like Katherine Waterston and Vicky Krieps! If he's one of her favorite directors, this wasn't exactly a smart way of ensuring a future collaboration between the two. If this is how she handles her career, no wonder all of her non-ensemble starring roles(Joy, Serena, Passengers, mother! and now Red Sparrow) have all been clunkers! She probably thought mother! was genius and edgy and bragged to Amy Schumer about how "I'm finally gonna be in one of those movies that hipsters who belittle me will watch!" But, when it didn't get the awards recognition she thought it deserved, she's decided to lash out at films like Phantom Thread that confuse her itty bitty brain and give her another nauseating, rehearsed way to demonstrate how much of a "normal person I am" for not liking "films" and only loving "movies."

Hey, Jennifer, stop sending nudes to overweight producers and start watching art films past the 3 minute mark. Your career will thank you. I don't know what mixture of hay and raccoon droppings were mixed into your baby formula back in Kentucky but it must've stunted your mental growth. Ultimately, it's not her fault. Her parents, who are probably second cousins, must've forgotten to teach her how to be a professional in between swigs from their jug of moonshine, five course smorgasbords of roadkill possum with all the fixin's under that kerosene lantern hanging from the ceiling by that wire hanger they called a chandelier back in Kentucky. Luckily for us, her 15 minutes will be over soon!


You have a very ugly soul, mister, and you don't seem to realize that you reveal it in your writing. Your words say nothing about their subject and very much about you.

If it wasn’t clear from Polka’s post, FilmCell was banned yesterday.

Not exactly surprising though, this is how I always imagined the Academy watching process went down. Explains a lot of the past winners ;)

Oh, for sure.  Which is why it's all bullshit. I personally know three Academy members who refuse to watch Get Out. It's so fucking stupid.

Not to mention the members that vote a 'party line' (eg, voting for the films their company released, etc), or that give their ballot to someone else to fill out, or vote for the film they 'heard' is deserving...

You hit a lot of nails on the head. Most don't really watch many of the films yet vote. The Academy is bullshit but really, all award shows are. When I was a kid, I could name every Best Picture winner for every year. Now I haven't watched the Oscars in over 10 years.

In keeping with this recent discussion of the Oscars:

The surprising fact behind how much it costs to win an Oscar
The glitziest Academy Awards actually cost the least, one analysis shows; predicts wins for “Phantom Thread” director and “The Post”

https://moneyish.com/ish/the-surprising-fact-behind-how-much-it-costs-to-win-an-oscar/
Quote
The big caveat to Giffgaff’s analysis is that it doesn’t necessarily take into account a big part of the Oscar nomination and award process: lobbying. The run-up to the March 4 ceremony, involves months of campaigning that includes cushy junkets (AKA “value-added opportunities”) for Academy voters, though these perks are restricted as the big night grows near.

Giffgaff however is so confident with its analysis that it’s even predicting winners in select categories for Sunday night. Its pick include Steven Spielberg’s “The Post,” which cost $50 million to make, for Best Motion Picture, and “Phantom Thread” auteur Paul Thomas Anderson for best director.

Kind of a Moneyball approach to predicting Oscar wins.

It’s a lot less awkward to watch two people in there at the same time, they should make it a trend

There's a scene in the pilot episode of HBO's Barry that heavily features a version of Linda's A-to-Z Pharmacy breakdown.

I liked the series premiere. There's a PTA vibe elsewhere in the episode, too, but maybe it's a bit low-key outside of the example you just mentioned.

I mean, among other things, Barry Block (Hader) reminded me of Barry Egan.
