Watched "The Favourite" last night and wasn't overly impressed with it, and Queen Anne's supposed lesbian tendencies were given too much free rein by the producer, as without this, the movie wouldn't have worked.

Yes, but without the lesbian angle, the picture wouldn't have been nominated for anything.

Agree, The Fav was not that impressive. But when compared to that pathetic “Roma” cr@p, it was good!

Had Roma not had the penis shaking scene it never would have gotten a nomination.

Main reason I've put this and Mary Queen of Scots (2018) on the Movies Binned list.

Check out

 

The Drug King

 

Korean version of Scarface I guess.

 

Looks like a true story...the guy who plays the lead in Old Boy is in it.

Actually there were some elements of truth in it SooKee, esp as regards the internal conflicts in the court and family of Mary. A bit like the Elizabeth movies, elements of truth, but not in the correct timelines, but the director/producer tries to cobble something together that is "interesting" and of course makes money!!

Add this one to your list - same actor

Check out the 'More Like This' below the title.

Some in the same vein as OldBoy

Got so many movies to watch at the moment; easier to just post my d/l list. The first four on there are Japanese, after having watched Shoplifters, which was extremely good, I looked for more that have good ratings.
