Watched Prisoners on HBO. A thriller though a bit violent in parts which I didn't care for but I just looks away. We enjoyed the movie. Hugh Jackman, Jake Gyllenhaal and Maria Bello. Excellent actors.

Moon (2009) on HBO. A sci fi thriller. Sam Rockwell stars. It's about self determination, hope, love and sacrifice. I enjoyed this despite it being a bit slow in parts.

We watched Parasite last night. It was entertaining but I wouldn't have chosen it for best picture.

I am going to watch this this weekend!
Have you watched the other best pic noms? Did you think a different one deserved it?

I've only seen once up a time in Hollywood and the joker.

So far this is the only one I’ve seen. I want to see Judy but might wait til it comes to cable vs paying for it on Amazon Prime because my dh isn’t too excited about watching it so maybe I’ll just wait on that.
I was loving it til it took a turn. Won’t add details so as not to spoil it for you and others who have not yet watched it.

You have a good point I haven’t seen any movies that are current except for Parasite. So I will retract my comment about the best picture award and see what I think after watching all the movies. Lol. I just didn’t think it was amazing and I guess I want a best picture to be amazing if you kwim. But it’s all relative as you wisely inferred.

Do you recommend any of the current movies that were nominated that you feel are a must see?

Once upon a time was ok, typical Quentin Tarantino. Not worth a best pic nod IMO, but entertaining enough.
Joker was really good. I think he definitely deserved the best actor award, but the movie itself ehhh.
So that's why I'm looking forward to parasite haha. Neither of these blew my mind!
I'll probably watch Marriage story one day, since its on Netflix. Probably Little Women too, but my husband also not that interested in it. Doubtful I will ever get through The Irishman lol

I loved Marriage Story but there are people who didn’t. It felt real if you kwim.

My friend loved Little Women. And he’s a guy so I’m guessing I will enjoy that if he said it’s good.

Same friend didn’t love Irishman. Too slow I think he said.



Parasite was really enjoyable til it took that turn and for me I sort of tuned out. But that’s me and now I react when certain things happen. Interested to hear your thoughts after you watch it. 75% of it was very enjoyable. Funny dark and entertaining.
