The Banshees of Inisherin is a great totally character driven film. It takes you on a ride with these characters and I was with it from beginning to end. On the other hand by the end of the movie I knew if I ever hear the word “fecking” again I may just lose it!
The animated film category is one of the only where I’ve watched all the nominees and for the most part enjoyed them (sometimes a lot more than the Best Film picks to be honest) enough so that ranking them was a wee bit difficult but also… I just really wanted to do a ranking.
Well the 2021 Oscar nominations came out and while I don’t think there were many big surprises I definitely have a few standouts from the whole list. Mainly I’m super thrilled for Steven Yeun!
Lady Bird Directed By: Greta Gerwig Grade: B+ This movie has a lot of hype to live up to, a near perfect Rotten Tomatoes score and just the general idea since I saw the preview I thought I’d really enjoy it. Under those high circumstances I don’t think it entirely lived up to the crazy … More Worthy of the Hype? Lady Bird
