MINAMATA Updates

Look, it's absolutely fine that Minamata probably won't be in the Oscars. The film has all sorts of other awards from other countries where the film industry is able to identify an electrically compelling movie. That ain't here -- the US is all about making money from shlock material that retreads ...

MINAMATA Updates

….Personally I'll be astonished if this is nominated for anything - Hollywood is scared of its own shadow now - I would love to be wrong but the anti-JD lobby is overwhelming in a town where vested self interest and corrupt money rules… Your comments, AdeleAgain, are hard to read but I have to ackn...

The Lawsuits Thread

Two great, succinct paragraphs, ForeverYoung. Thanks! The time for hoping somehow the jury will miraculously choose the right crayons to accurately fill in their picture of AH is long gone and slipping farther away with every Twitter/SM minute left before April. Relationships of the nature AH had wi...

MINAMATA Updates

Thank you, fireflydances, for all your information, suggestions, and your infectious power of positive thinking. I am, however, in the throes of uncomfortable reminders of The Weinstein Company’s shenanigans with respect to its limited release of The Libertine back in November of 2005. Promises, pro...

MINAMATA Updates

Thanks, fireflydances, for the update. I, too, am on the east coast but it is reassuring to know Minamata distribution is moving beyond the initial LA “opening” venues.

MINAMATA Updates

Thank you, SnoopyDances!
That’s the announcement I’ve been longing to see! Now if only there is a bit of serious promotion to accompany it - absolutely nothing yet - perhaps the distribution will do the film justice.

New Podcast called "Wino Forever-The Deppening"!

....and this is just one person's opinion, but I think it is best to AVOID anything of this nature. It just sensationalizes the situation more. It's plain out gossip. … I agree with your “one person’s opinion”, fireflydances. Without reservation. Court documents and specific legal references to sam...

MINAMATA Updates

AdeleAgain: ….Off topic but I am struggling with today: heartbroken that JD isn't in Fantastic Beasts - am going to avoid the trailer like a plague. …. Agreed, AdeleAgain. I have been beyond sad about the turn of events re JD and Grindelwald, especially since JD was really psyched to play that char...

Ohhhhh! Thank you, SnoopyDances, for this unbelievably fabulous news! And the same, many times over to ILBE and the film’s director, Andrew Levitas, for never giving up. I haven’t been this happy - grinning from ear to ear - in a very, very long time. Do you think this means a DVD in English (not En...

Thanks so much, Lbock, for the good news. The best part was Mr. Chew’s pithy assessment:

‘The Judge’s decision “did not appear to be a close call”.’ :bigwink:

Lovely pic. Given the absence of eyeglasses, the licorice cigarette and guitar, I’m assuming it was taken off-set. https://twitter.com/DarkSelene3/status/1441744039632637955 Re: Minamata It's already available on demand all over the world (with English subtitles).

‘Acclaimed photographer Stephen DuPont denounces MGM’s “burying”of the film, Minamata in North America.’

What’s it going to take for MGM to do the right thing?

The last eight or nine posts are just perfection - I read them over and over. It just would be plagiarism to try to elaborate. I do feel heartsick, however, to know that ultimately Johnny has been betrayed by his own country - my country - and the worst of its citizenry. Beyond anything, I will alwa...
