re: How did The Iron Claw get zero Oscar nominations? - JW
Oppenheimer seemed to do just fine and i don't recall much of a DEI element. Same with the Holdovers, Barbie, Maestro, Past Lives. The Color Purple did not fare as well. ...

re: How did The Iron Claw get zero Oscar nominations? - JW
I was a kid of the 80's, so followed regional wrestling but i don't have a lasting memory of this family. I have no doubt it is a well done representation of the family and the time, but didn't make it a great movie for me. Take Maestro for instance (also well executed to the period, but not great) ...

re: How did The Iron Claw get zero Oscar nominations? - JW
Tough competition this year ... It was good, but not great ... And it came out late in the campaign season, which i think worked against it. I enjoyed it, but never felt it was an Academy threat. ...

re: 'The Sympathizer' Official Trailer #2 | HBO | Robert Downey Jr - JW
PCW not only directed three, but was a show runner. He had creative control and on set input for all episodes, including the one directed by the City of God director Fernando. His level of detail and precision is tough to match. A true auteur and very kind in the process. i am interested to see h...

re: Vietnam vets who stayed behind in SE Asia voluntarily - JW
I am in Thailand for work (fourth time in five years) .. It is a wonderful country, but far from perfect. Traffic is terrible, pollution in BKK can be stifling and it's filled with Russians hiding out (especially in Phuket). And tourism is a bit overwhelming at times. That said - it can be heav...

re: New Oscar category coming to next year's Academy Awards - Best Casting - JW
If it was given this year, it would likely go to Oppenheimer or The Holdovers. Hardly films driven by any inclusion mandates or diversity pressure. Seems a bit odd to me, especially as an Academy Member. Better served in the SAG awards. ...

re: Grunge Era - JW
Turned 18 right before Nevermind ... so was in the heart of it. Some other contributors to the more underground "grunge" world: Babes In Toyland, Luna Chicks, Melvins, Screaming Trees were amazing then, Mudhoney ... of course L7 was bringing it. Rollins Band was incredible then ... Helmet. Sort ...

re: Is Apple happy with its entry into the movie making biz? - JW
Apple had nothing to do with the making of CODA (i was on it, so saw firsthand it was small budget produced by Pathe Films.) They came in and acquired a completed film for double what it was made for. Killers was split between them and Paramount I believe. They seem to be more hands on produ...
