  • Jim’s Jottings for March 9, 2018

    Oscars: Was I wrong or what? I was writing from what I know of the Good Old Days when scifi was ignored, anything sexy was ignored, slasher flicks were ignored, etc. Last year, I was sure “La La Land” would win, and it did for a few seconds! In truth, the nominations this year were all for really good films and wonderful performances, so making a decision would be tough. We went to AMC on Tuesday to see “I, Tonya,” about the ice skater Tonya Harding and her monster mother, played by Allison Janney, who did win an Oscar, and justly so. So what we haven’t been able to see yet include “The Florida Project” and “Mudbound.” Perhaps, now that they have won awards, they will show up. If not, Film Forum?
