My Six-Month Film Awards: 2017

2017 Six Month Best Picture

Time flies when you’re having fun, and even if I haven’t been having as much fun as I’d hoped – I’ve only seen 19 films for this year so far, compared with 35 this time last year – it’s still hard to believe it’s already time for this year’s Six-Month Awards.

Because I’ve seen so few films, I considered not doing them, but was persuaded to otherwise; partially for consistency’s sake (thank you, Maggie!), and partially because I love doing these posts. So let’s see what we’ve got!

Picture:

  1. A Quiet Passion
  2. Kedi
  3. Wonder Woman
  4. Baby Driver
  5. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

TRAILER SALAD VI: INSIDE OUT, AMERICAN SNIPER, THE MULE, BLACK SEA, THE WATER DIVINER, HORRIBLE BOSSES 2, SUMMER OF BLOOD

While I’m still figuring out just how to review the Nick Cave documentary 20,000 Days on Earth, how about some trailers?

First off, we’ve got the new Pixar, which looks pretty delightful. It’s got a hell of a voice cast–Amy Poehler, Lewis Black, Mindy Kaling, Bill Hader, and Phyllis Smith are the emotions–and a rich premise, so I expect this to be a bounce back from Monsters University (I will defend Brave, however). I am a little curious as to why 4 of the 5 emotions are negatives, or why Disgust is a separate emotion (though, Kaling is voicing Disgust, so objection I will waive), but I trust all will be satisfactorily explained.

Clint Eastwood’s Chris Kyle biopic, at the very least, looks much better than Jersey Boys or J. Edgar. I’m not sure if it’ll be a factor in the awards game this year or not–some are predicting it, though–but at the very least I could see Bradley Cooper getting a third nomination off of this. (According to Wikipedia, the film will not cover the alleged feud with and subsequent lawsuit from Jesse Ventura. I’m not sure how I feel about that.)
