Comment Fun

NEW PODCAST: lots of Oscar talk!

" I really like Janney a lot in her film, but Metcalf's just my favorite nominee in any acting category." - Nick T

"I wonder who will present Actress this year? I have a feeling it'll be Ashley Judd, Mira Sorvino, Annabella Sciorra... Seems like the right thing to do." - Michael R

 "I've been hoping for months that Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway will be invited back to annouce Best Picture this year. It just seems like the right thing to do." - MrW

Hooray! May the Comment Party Begin Again...

And there was much rejoicing. I can "hear" you all again. You can hear each other. We didn't expect to take a vow of collective silence but I had just watched Novitiate, that movie about the nuns, in which The LEOgend is very very upset when people talk during conversation blackout periods so perhaps I spiritually triggered it? Anyway... PLEASE SAY SOMETHING TO END THE SILENCE.

Happy Monday Open Thread

Left to Right: Chris Feil, Murtada Elfadl, Nathaniel R, Jose Solis

The Film Experience is mostly an online party, but on very rare occasions small portions of us have the opportunity to see each other off line. So from this brief weekend get together... happy Monday to all of you!

WHAT'S ON YOUR CINEMATIC MIND?

"Ratatouille" is 10. What would you have Remy cook for you?

Pixar's genius "anyone can cook" classic Ratatouille turned 10 years old today. It's aging well and one thing it very much has going for it is that it's unlikely to ever have a sequel. That's a very good thing in so many ways today since too many great films are ruined by the need to "follow them up" or provide backstories by way of prequels. 

In its honor two questions for you:

1. Everyone loves the title scene where Anton the critic remembers his childhood but what's your second favorite scene?

2. What perfectly cooked dish would send you back to a bliss-inducing memory?

What's on your cinematic mind?

Do tell. The movie landscape has been a bit bleak this summer, hasn't it? Any requests?
