2023 Academy Awards Best Picture Nominee - Elvis

Chris's comments: I think this one’s winning so far.

Cathy's comments: Damn. This was really, really good. And Austin Butler did a spectacular job in the title role. Added in 2024 (from memory): Excellent acting, excellent sound/music/singing, and excellent costume design, though Tom Hanks looked weird in a fat suit.

(Pithy Reviews; and Rankings of 5 out of 10 nominees):

  • Elvis (Excellent movie with stellar acting, music and costumes; Cathy: 2, Chris: 1)
  • Everything Everywhere All at Once (Excellent, beautiful, imaginative and utterly bizarre; Cathy: 1, Chris: 2)
  • Top Gun: Maverick (Very enjoyable but not really Oscar material; Cathy: 3, Chris 3)
  • Tár (Boring movie about a loathsome person. Only watched 60%; Cathy: 4, Chris: 4)
  • Triangle of Sadness (Terrible, gross, and Cathy only watched half; Cathy: 5, Chris: 5)
