#Minari

Wonderful, just bl**dy wonderful! So achingly beautiful it breaks your d*mn heart! Superbly confident directing by #LeeIsaacChung, no easy cliches, just nuance, aided by edit & music. Cast, all *great* (no noms for Patton or esp #YeriHan?!) Perfect, heartmelting ending.

LFC Lose in QFs 2021 CL

😔

#LFC played their hearts out, and outplayed #RealMadrid but those chances just wouldn't fall😭

There's always next year, right? (Checks table😲) Right?!

PS. #TrentAA was amazing, why is that surprising to Twitter🤔?

PPS. #Zidane...still in futbol shape🤩

#LIVRMA #UCL

Sound of Metal

#SoundOfMetal

Good clean #Whiplash-meets-#ChildrenOfALesserGod Awards-Bait fun. Marvel at how precisely this was crafted for max Festival/Awards/#Oscars impact, very impressive. Always appreciate Riz's underacting-with-a-Capital-U-&-A But #PaulRaci well & truly steals the show🙌

KKR Crashes to Loss Against MI From Winning Position 2021 IPL

 



😇 🤨 😨 😱 😵 ☹️

The life of a Bengali cricket fan, sigh...

Hopefully with the likes of #Nitish, #Shubman, #BigDre #KKR will rise above this classic defeat-from-the-jaws-of-victory loss to #MI Right?!😬

PS Tell me Trent's TM-ed #ThunderBoult😄

PPS #Chahar's 4 wkts😲

#KKRvMI

Kershaw Beats Scherzer

PS. #Kershaw outdueled the awesome #Scherzer...in one match *and* historically😼

In fact, if it weren't for #Kornheiser's PR-blitz, the #CyYoung count really shoulda been 4-2😇

#Dodgers #Nats

TIME

#TimeTheMovie

Extraordinarily moving documentary. Mesmeric editing rhythms pull you into the family's world so you acutely feel the individual impact of the often abstract, nebulous?, concept of the criminal justice system. Rich, the woman at the heart of it all, is remarkable.

ArcLight Cinemas Shutting Down 😲!!

Oh no, not the #ArcLight!!!

Sigh...

Maybe we can get #Netflix & #Amazon into a bidding war (that way the #CineramaDome can be saved🙏)🤔?

KKR Beats SRH To Start Their 2021 IPL



This time I definitely had a rooting interest so it was a little too close for comfort😱!

Still, great start to #IPL2021 for #KKR thx to blitzkrieg from #Nitish & #Tripathi, key runs from #Karthik, wickets from #Prasidh👍

PS. TBH’s fave #Shubhman’s straight-bat 6😲!

Encino Backyard

If my life were a photograph, I'd want it to be this, no? Man, what a backyard life this would be🧘‍♀️!

IPL 2021 Gets Off to a Rollicking Start Thanks to AB deVilliers!

I didn't have much rooting interest but that #MIvRCB was super-exciting!

What a day for #Harshal: 5-for & winning runs👍

But #ABdeVilliers, man, that guy...too much💪!

PS. Who's this #MarcoJansen kid?! 6'8"😲!

Voyagers

#Voyagers

Good, clean #LordOfTheFlies YA poli-sci-fi fun. Expert craftsmanship: DP, music, drool-worthy prod design, &, of course, sound by #PaulHsu(🤩). The kids?, well they are certainly all right, esp charismatic villain Whitehead. PS. Will it really come to this😳?!

Barty and Hurkacz Win 2021 Miami Open

PS. Congrats to #Barty on her No1-solidifying win & #Hurkacz on his coming-of-age win(seen him, big game suprisingly more steady than flashy)👏

Bad luck to man-is-his-future-*bright* #Sinner & sigh-those-injuries-again #Andreescu

Now, the interminable clay swing😇

#MiamiOpen

Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom

#MaRaineysBlackBottom

Good, clean, sturdily-made stage-to-streaming-screen fun. Big fan of Santiago-Hudson(#LackawannaBlues!), and that awesome ensemble: Coyne, Domingo, Paige & esp Turman. But, man, Viola, powerhouse. And, of course, the legend that is #ChadwickBoseman😔

UCLA Loses Heartbreaking Match to Gonzaga 2021 Final Four

Can't believe I'm gonna say this: bad luck #UCLA!

Those underdog kids played their hearts out but fair play to #Suggs, that's one of the greatest shots, ever!

TBH: This is so much more exciting than the NBA 😂

#GodzillaVsKong

Good, clean monstermano-a-monstermano-meets-#IceAge-3-meets-#PacificRim fun. Henry & esp Hottle steal the show, but, c'mon, real show's the matchup we've been waiting 6yrs for! PS. Everywhere Russell's go destruction follows...maybe they're the real monsters🤔?!

RIP Bertrand Tavernier

RIP #BertrandTavernier

All-time great French director, and a wonderfully affable film historian. Sadly, I only caught his well-known work, wonderful, lived-in films, moving, thought-provoking without resorting to gimmicky directorial pyrotechnics. Can't wait to watch the rest...

UCLA Shocks Michigan to Surprisingly Reach Final Four 2021 March Madness

I can't believe I'm about to say this:

Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga

#EurovisionSongContest

Good, clean minor-Ferrell-being-Ferrell fun. #RachelMcAdams(and her own singing, assisted by #MollySanden) totally steals the show…and movie😌 And good luck getting that earworm #Husavik out of your head! Nice work by (desi)co-composer #SavanKotecha👏

RIP George Segal

RIP #GeorgeSegal

One of my faves, always loved seeing him in *any*thing. Legendary name growing up, when I finally caught up he was in his daffy-(grand)pa phase, but still great. Then discovering his classic films, wow. He could, and did, do *every*thing. An absolute legend.

Medvedev Getting to No. 2 Means a Changing of the Guard

Man, when was the last time none of the #BigFour were at #MiamiOpen?!

Speaking of a changing of the guard, how about #Medvedev getting to No. 2👍!

Not sure what it means for men's tennis (terrifying 😬?!)future in NA media market but I'm here for the sarcy-quirky Daniil Era 😂

23 March 2021

RIP Elgin Baylor

RIP #ElginBaylor

One of *the* greatest of all basketball players, who never got his just due in #GOAT debate. The more you read, dig out archival clips, marvel at the numbers, and learn of the man *off* the court, you realise just how enduring and massive his impact truly was.

Good, clean maximal-epic superhero fun! G*d bless #ZackSnyder giving it his customary turn-it-up-to-eleven best! G*d bless, him too, for, ahem, salvaging, #Cyborg! Dude *steals* the show. Can't wait for his standalone film😼 #JusticeLeague saved #DC's day, huh🤩?

Ammonite

#Ammonite

Wonderfully moving film, that, like its titular, er fossils?, once you get past its sharp exterior, you'll be rewarded with its central emotional core. Great work by sound designer, bone-cold DP(🥶), cast, & leads Ronan & esp #Oscars-worthy #KateWinslet. What an ending

RIP Yaphet Kotto

RIP #YaphetKotto

One of my all-time fave love-that-guy character actors. Should've been given more opportunities, but, boy did he make the *most* of what he was given. I always looked forward to that awesome, slowburn-cool screen presence. PS. Homicide was a *network* TV show?!
