(or seconded of the carry-over nomination).

pixote will let us know what carries over as soon as he takes care of 2018. But yes, I would expect this one to carry over along with plenty of other stuff. But as we did last year, only re-eligible films found on ballots will carry over. Anything else will need to be re-FYC'd. Just as an FYI.

Post by: Corndog on March 18, 2019, 03:27:50 PM
Yes, the other one is after the initial run of credits, then there is another at the very end of the scroll. But I think a lot of people would call both "post credit" sequences. So just to avoid confusion I will list it as Post-Credit Sequence #2.

I'll second Moss.

Add in Heidecker too for supporting actor. Felt like the dad was the best of the core cast, but not sure I'd nominate him.

Don't know what to do with the Moss parts that really hit me, just don't think they'd fit in the scene categories and probably aren't single shots.

Looks like English is listed as the primary language of the film, but I trust your judgement and the judgement of our voters. So if enough people like it/support it, the people will speak. So I'll definitely list it in the FYC for now.
Title: Re: FYC 2019 - General
Post by: FLYmeatwad on April 17, 2019, 08:19:09 PM
Yeah, it's on the edge, it definitely does use a a notable amount of English, but also feels like a bunch is subtitled and language switching going on through out. It's on the edge for me, and in the end I'm unsure if it'll make it to my final list, but think it's worth considering if others agree when it starts to open.

Not sure I understand the joke re Booksmart. Is it a white savior type of Best White People or a knock on the film's diversity, which I would have never considered to be a particular weakness.

Kinda just being random. Though the inciting incident relates to all all these kids getting into top schools, which sort of embodies the white, suburban, upper middle class perspective of the film — encouraging my brain to lump it together with other recent coming of age films (Thoroughbreds, Edge of Seventeen, Ladybird, Eighth Grade, etc.) which as a group exist in a pretty narrow space on the race-class spectrum, marking very little progress in that regard since John Hughes’ heyday.

I like all the films in the parenthesis way more, but it's a valid and good way to group those films, I think it's applicable and does keep them all kind of dwelling in the same space.

RE: Rocketman, the soundtrack is good, but huge missed opportunity to include the best song involving Elton John: Young Thug's "High."

The Souvenir

Probably other things too, need to think on it. Hopefully other people see it and fill in the gaps for me.

There's a dramatic scene I want to nominate, but not sure how to describe it.

The Souvenir

*Picture
*Director
Original Screenplay
*Actress (Honor Swinton Byrne)
Actor (Tom Burke)
Supporting Actress (Tilda Swinton)
Ensemble Cast
Editing
Soundtrack
Comedic Scene (Bed Dysmorphia)

The last two shots of the movie are both nice — the first being a moving camera shot that did exactly what I hoped it would do, right up until a self-reflexive glance; the second being the view of the world from inside a sound stage — but I can’t quire convince myself to FYC either. Even Editing, Soundtrack, and Supporting Actress we’re close class, but the last few years have taught me that I’m going to end up scavenging for nominees by ballot time, so better to over-FYC now.

Editing is a good call, and Soundtrack is used pretty effectively. That's a good comedic scene as well, likely the first part where I got on board with/understood Burke as more than just a character I thought I had figured out. Not sure how to go about nominating the scene where She definitely finds out that he stole her stuff and they have a conversation where she says something like, "I appreciate there are things you can't tell me." And he hits back with "There are things about me that drive you mad, and there are things about you that drive me mad." I'm doing a bad job of describing it, but the camera is kind of all just in one place, that thing really floored me in that moment, nearly started crying, and definitely realized just how strong the script was at that point.

I was planning to use the last image from the scene you describe as the screenshot for my review (if it’s in the trailer). Definitely a tough one to describe. I think the “I’m fine” scene/shot hit me a little harder.

2016 puts the film outside the three-year window, but historically we've give a single year leeway for a film that started on the festival circuit and finally found release. Any official international release in 2016 would disqualify the film, but I'm guessing all those 2016 dates in IMDb are festivals.

tl;dr - Eligible.
