Anybody watched Blade Runner 2049? Some critics say that this movie will get at least a couple of Oscars if not more.

Strong, strong reviews but I rarely do remakes except for for The Postman..., Pride & Predjudice. Can't think of any others worthy..

Ed, Blade Runner 2049 (2017) is a sequel to Blade Runner (1982) (the latter is set in 2019), not a remake. If the former is a fraction as good as the latter, then it will be unmissable.

As far as remakes are concerned, I prefer the Ben-Hur (1959 film) to the Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ (1925 film)

I know, it's not a movie technically ... but it's still an amazing accomplishment.
In the UK it is broadcast as a 10-part mini-series. I think it should be the same in the USA. We have been treated to the first four brilliant parts, with two consecutive parts a week, so far.

Yes, I was going to report the Vietnam post's OP, using the 'Report Post' button, but desisted and decided not to as he is such an infrequent and anari (inexperienced) poster.

This is a fantastic movie. A rookie FBI agent (Elizabeth Olsen) and a U.S. Fish & Wildlife agent (Jeremy Renner) go investigating a homicide in oppressive winter weather in the wilderness of Wind River Indian Reservation in Wyoming. The movie is a gripping thriller and is spectacular with beautiful music and amazing story telling by director Taylor Sheridan. A near-masterpiece.

I thought World at War (BBC nominally on WWII) was meant to be an allegory for the Nam war. I loved the part where the Brits invaded Normandy and allowed a few Amrikans to come along for the show. Serves us right for kicking them out of their empire (including India)
during and immediately afterwards the war.. [Reference Churchill's diary entries just before the Yalta conference.]

Lady Bird is a movie about relationship between a mother and her daughter. It is very compelling and a coming of age movie about a teenager (Saoirse Ronan) and her mother (Laurie Metcalf) and is very funny, witty and an intelligent movie.
