1917 - 9/10. Loved it, and can't wait to watch it again. It was different than what I expected, but still great. The way it was shot you feel like you're there. Cinematography was top notch.

Uncut Gems - 6/10. I was hyped for this after seeing reviews and seeing it was made by the Safie Brothers (who did Good Time), but this one just didn't quite do it for me.

Looking forward to: The Gentlemen, The King's Man, No Time to Die.

The Irishman

Pesci deserves a supporting Oscar for this. He was the very best thing about what was a decent mobster movie.

Best picture? Oh heck no.

About 45 minutes too long.

A solid movie but nothing as memorable as Goodfellas and Casino. Not in those movies league.

Re: What movies have you seen recently?

I can understand why "1917" is met with mixed reviews. It reminded me of "Saving Private Ryan" and "Fury" condensed into a unique story. Sure, it's a couple of guys. They're conversing. And it's maybe not the most compelling story. BUT, I think you have to watch it through the lens of "what if this was me and my best friend put in this scenario"... My wife and I took our 14 year old daughter to see it. 4 years ago she lost her big brother other (and our oldest son) to a car wreck. She was very emotional at the end because of the power of that story and bond. I think it was good for her to see it to allow a lot of those feelings to shine. I got choked up as I looked over at her wiping tears away... I knew fully what that moment meant.

What about in the first two Godfathers' league?

I've only seen three of the nominated movies and I would rank The Irishman as #2.

([1] Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, [2] The Irishman, [3] Joker).

Not those movies league either but I was sticking with Scorcesseís mobster output.

I guess other than Joker it is a weak year because

1917
9/10
Such an amazing movie, maybe my favorite Iíve seen in a year.
The story was amazing and how they showed the life in the trenches was so real.

The Aeronauts. Very entertaining ..... the suspense moments were great, but it's disappointing to hear/read that it's basically a politically correct movie. It wasn't a man and woman team at all.
