Tom Sightings

Okay, since you're asking (kind of) here's my two cents:
Liked: A Star Is Born
Liked: The Green Book
Loved: If Beale Street Could Talk
Cold War: okay
Roma ... I fell asleep.
Didn't see the others.
Academy Awards: Missed the host, and the speeches were too long.


Hi Tom,

Yes, I'm interested in getting reports on what people liked in the Academy Award-nominated movies.

I agree with you about "Roma." I was surprised it won oscars in three of the bigger categories.

I'm surprised that "Green Book" won best picture. It was a good movie, but I thought several others were better.



I'm thrilled that Green Book won. I really got into it. Loved BlackkKlansman and Vice also. I agree that Beale Street was excruciatingly slow (director choice) but Regina King and all the actors were excellent. The dresses that night were a nightmare for the most part.


Hi Rebecca,

"Green Book" was a surprise and there are a lot of comments about it today in the media. I thought it was a good movie, but I think "Vice," "BlackKKKlandman," and "Bohemian Rhapsody" are stronger movies.

Your list is much better than the list of the actual Oscars.


Thanks. It's a lot of work to go to all those movies and watching the violent ones is troubling. However, I think it's important to point out regularly that violent images have a negative impact on people, especially children, and more movies are needed about women and older adults.
