Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar Nominees 2019
A Star Is Born
(3.5 Stars) In yet another remake, Lady Gaga shows she can act better than Bradley Cooper can sing. Its OK if you’re into sappy romances.
(5 Stars) One of my favorite movies of the year, a black man joins the KKK. Although it sounds like a comedy, this is a Spike Lee movie full of important messages.
Can You Ever Forgive Me?
(4 Stars) This surprising little gem will leave a mark on your heart.
If Beale Street Could Talk
(4.5 Stars) A wonderful romance with terrific music. Another one of the better movies this year.
The Ballad of Buster Scruggs
(4.5 Stars) A Coen Brothers film and a collection of six stories, each of which will puzzle and amuse.
