    He didn’t see it, too much reading required. It was a good movie, though. Not my favorite of the year but I can’t say it didn’t deserve the win.

    Agree. Thought it was a good movie. Didn't think it deserved best picture, but I thought it was a down year for movies in general.

    As for Trump, just more xenophobic rhetoric for his base.

    Wow really? This year seemed like a year where there were too many worthy winners nominated and Parasite sort of became the choice because of the crowded field.

    What’s even more absurd is anyone believing he sat through the four-hour long Gone With the Wind, which he laments as a proper Best Picture.

    Nevermind the overt racism that Hattie McDaniel got to deal with when she won an Oscar.

    He famously had some Van Damme movie edited down to just show the fights, maybe he got his own special edition of Gone With the Wind too.

    Just the parts where the slaves lamented their emancipation?

    I thought Once upon a Time should win, it was the defining pic of the year, imo.

    I loved Ford v Ferrari personally, and was shocked Bale wasn't nominated. But I didn't see it as a best Pic type movie.

    1917 was a really COOL movie, but again, it wasn't some definitive best pic type movie to me.

    I thought Joker was wildly overrated simply because it appeals to the type of people that are going to obnoxiously love a movie like that. It was a fine movie.

    I still need to see Marriage Story.


    I thought Parasite was really good, but it was sort of just another take on the theme of Snowpiercer. The twist in the middle was incredible though. I don't think it was undeserving of winning, just wasn't an incredible field. 2019 was way stronger. Jmo.

    Trump thinks Gone With the Wind is about passing gas outside. True story.

    Naturally he loves "Gone with the Wind" and obviously wants us to know it. The movie opens with a glorification, written on the screen, of that great past civilization "of Master and Slave."

    Weird that people are responding to this by talking about the quality of the movie. That has absolutely nothing to do with what he's saying here. This is one of his most blatant statements of racism and xenophobia to date.

    You're right, but it's also a topic we've beat to death on this board constantly, so we know how this thread would go. I mentioned it and already got a "come on man" even though it is blatant. So why bother at this point?

    Talking about movies was a change of pace.

    Yep. Completely racist, but there are those who continue to claim that he has never done or said anything racist at all, so here we are.

    Well yeah, this is 100% culture war stuff, he hasn't even seen the movie. But that's his schtick, so its not even remarkable anymore.

    It's odd that he brought up Korea with no mention of his lover boy Kim. I wonder if they've had a spat. No, that can't be, if they had some falling out then Trump would be calling him insulting names. I guess it was just an oversight.

    Wrong Korea, NK is the good one, South Korea is the bad one he's mad about our trade with.

    Maybe Trump can start his own Golden Shower Awards for good old fashioned movies.

    When I saw the thread title, I knew who the posters would be. I've never seen a group of people more obsessed with another individual than this crew is with Trump.
