    From the trailer I assumed this was a fun but generic comedy, but apparently J.Lo has genuine Oscar buzz for her performance here.



    More fuel for my ongoing theory that J.Lo is my generation's Joan Crawford.

    :disco:

    This trailer has been playing in cinemas for quite some time. It looks quite fun, so long as it actually is how it’s being marketed and isn’t some dreary shit like The Bling Ring.

    A quick twitter search only turned up 2 tweets about J.lo future Oscar winner so I wouldn’t count that as buzz. But hey anything can happen.

    The trailer looks good and The Bling Ring was good.

    this is currently looking at a projected $27m opening weekend, which, if I'm not mistaken, would be her biggest opening weekend EVER (not including animated stuff like Ice Age) :o at the age of 50 no less!

    She really has been phenomenally smart in keeping her music and film projects alive so that she's always making bank and keeping her profile high. For a once-ridiculed movie star she's found her niche very nicely and picks projects well. Unlike, say, Jennifer Aniston who's also working in the same realm.

    Reactions from Toronto are very positive.

    It's easy to forget how hot she was as an actress pre the music.

    Selena was a good start and Out Of Sight was next level.

    80 on Metacritic :o she might well be in the Supporting Actress mix, and Wu in Best Actress! I suspect it will all come down to how will this does at the box office (and I imagine it's going to blow all expectations away)

    Mimi needs to do a Joan Crawford and accept on the behalf of all the others

    i think she's an awful actress when she isn't playing herself and i lost my irrational sympathy for her when she started churning out the dreary brain-dead latino music. it's all just a paycheck for henny from the block.

    the original rita ora, no doubt.

    i still can't believe gaga's grubby hands didn't taint the best actress award.

    i mean i actually like (more than a couple of aspects about) the woman, but come on.

    This is delightful (no need to bother looking at Jimmy, obviously)

    That would have been better if they had done it in proper chronological order like the actual History of Dancing video. Unfortunately some of the later ones I had no clue about! The only Senorita I know is Timberlake, but it wasn’t that.

    Nice to see you've advanced from 1993 to 2003 as your most recent musical reference. Looking forward to you finding out about this song in 2036.

    Some are speculating that this will open with 30m+ stateside now :o I'm seeing ads/digital billboards everywhere in Amsterdam too - it being a big commercial success would give Jenny some serious momentum for the nomination I think

    OK, so it’s FUN. J’Lo looks fucking amazing not just for her age but for any age. It’s very kind of Wolf of Wall Street but with a few more morals, but Oscars? No.

    Points added for the Janet songs.

    Where did you see it Ells?

    The Toronto buzz is mindblowing and has her down as a dead cert for a Best Supporting win.

    What do you mean where? It came out on Friday and I saw it in the afternoon on my day off.

    Definitely not Oscar worthy, but perhaps Golden Globes. It would depend on the competition though, perhaps ScarJo for JoJo Rabbit, which I’ll be seeing at the LFF.

    Opens significantly above projections with $33 million in America. :disco: J.Lo's biggest opening weekend of her career and easily in line to cross the $100 million threshold in a matter of weeks.

    QUEEN

    I'm not a CINEMA QUEEN by instinct but I'm considering breaking that from the buzz alone for this and CATS (2019) :disco:

    This was good, the first part suffers from all the stunt casting but once you move to the main 4 women it gets really good.

    J. Lo is good but nothing Oscar worthy imo. Constance Wu is great and I love that she’s a modern day Faye Dunway in terms of her reputation.
