    The Best Years Of Our Lives

    I watched this a few years ago because I realized I hadn't seen any William Wyler movies, even though he'd won three Best Pictures and Best Directors, along with one Director nomination before that. After watching all of them, I concluded that the Academy had really overrated his early work but that Best Years of Our Lives absolutely lived up to the hype. I agree it's much better than The Deer Hunter, but I'd already criticized that earlier. Homer is the most memorable and doesn't suffer at all for not being a professional actor, but I liked that we had the other two to illustrate other aspects of the post-war experience. Ayn Rand didn't hate movies, in fact she worked in Hollywood and married an actor, but she did castigate artistic "realism", instead advocating for Victor Hugo-esque "romanticism".

    Episode 226.5 - Minisode 226.5

    Not so much a C&O but just some (hopefully) helpful info for Paul vis Michael Bay and whether or not he could be Canadian: one simple way to tell if your DVDs are being shipped from Canada (and if they were ever intended for sale in Canada) is to check the packaging. It would have to have bilingual copy on the case (with the title in both English and French) and it would need the rating from Canada's film classification board. If it doesn't have those things, it's probably an American region 1 disc, or maybe just some kind of bootleg. Speaking of bilingualism and movies, you guys really need to watch Bon Cop Bad Cop sometime.

    Episode 226.5 - Minisode 226.5

    Here a pretty great look at the short-lived Jeremy Renner app and how hilariously terrible it was before it was apparently destroyed by trolls.

    Doctor Sleep (2019)

    I haven't seen This Boy's Life. So, I can't really say. I agree that he was great in Aviator but he lost to Jamie Foxx in Ray which is totally fair in my mind. That's the problem for DiCaprio. He's consistently great but most years there is someone I (and apparently Oscar voters) find better.

    The Irishman (2019)

    If you are a fan of Scorsese’s work in the 70s or with Goodfellas, I doubt you will be disappointed. The cast is fucking great, with DeNiro and Pacino turning in their best performances in a long time. In many ways it feels like a film that was made in the 70s. Scorsese is not simply playing his greatest hits here. Which means (and this might bother people who are expecting intense old-school Scorsese) the film is long and contemplative. It didn’t feel slow to me, but it is very leisurely paced. In a 3 1/2 hour long film, there’s about 5 minutes of mob violence, some of it offscreen and most shot in a less visceral way than Goodfellas. It is perhaps one of the least romanticized gangster films ever made. In this respect, it is the polar opposite of Goodfellas. i loved it.

    Parasite (2019)

    Giving this film a bump because it should be seen. It’s a wild ride, but everyone I know who has seen it had really liked it (including my parents!).

    Doctor Sleep (2019)

    But honestly, I thought Leo gave a much better performance in Once Upon... than in The Revenant (once again, that movie suuuuucked. Art-house torture porn. It seemed like he was reacting more to extreme conditions than he was given a character to portray. And I’ve seen that movie twice—because I thought maybe I was being to hard on it the first time. The second time I just fast-forwarded through most of the Leo stuff and watched Tom Hardy. By the way, in reality, the person Leo’s character was based on wasn’t avenging his family. He was pissed because his colleagues stole his gun and left him for dead. Now THAT’s a revenge movie). I wouldn’t be pissed if he was nominated this year.

    Doctor Sleep (2019)

    If you’re going that far back, why not say he was robbed for This Boy’s Life? i thought he was really good in The Aviator (and Gilbert Grape as well). I liked Christoph Waltz in Django, but it was pretty much the exact same performance he gave—and won an award for—in Inglorious Basterds. And I’ve never really seen him vary from that tone or type of performance.

    Episode 226.5 - Minisode 226.5

    I know the corrections and omissions are meant for the main show, but I wanted to point out that Grace Jones’s May Day from A View to a Kill was not the Bond villain with killer thighs (although it wouldn’t surprise me if she has killed people with her legs before). It was actually Xenia Onatopp (played by Famke Janssen) in Goldeneye.
