Lol..Is this a test to see if people are reading your lists, or have I slipped into an alternate dimension, or maybe had a memory-altering stroke, or are these a reference to something that I'm not aware of...?

1998 Favorites

In 1998, I went to the Old Town Bar (one of the oldest bars in NYC, from 1892) for burgers with some friends, then around the corner to see The Last Days of Disco. The Bar turns up in the movie! One of many reasons I love the film, a beautiful, sweet, at times sad homage to a little bit of New York in “the very early 1980s.” Wonderful cast assembled by the brilliant Whit Stillman. Is any screen couple sweeter than Matt Keeslar and Chloe Sevigny?

Leading vs. Supporting Categories in 1998 …

IMO Billy Bob Thornton was a lead in A Simple PlanOscar and many other Awards put him in the supporting category.  Bill Paxton is a co lead.  Bridget Fonda and Brent Briscoe are supporting.

Both Jane Horrocks and Brenda Blethyn are co-leads and Michael Caine the lead actor in Little Voice.  Oscar had Blethyn as supporting though this move was probably by design as not to split any potential votes.  Little Voice is as much about the mother as the daughter.  

Meryl Streep and Renee Zellweger are both leads in One True Thing.

Daniel Craig is supporting in Love Is the Devil.

Brendan Fraser is a co-lead in Gods and Monsters.

Hercules is a decent although imperfect Disney film. I enjoy the songs (sung mainly by a sassy quintet of Muses) and some of the jokes enough, but the film's one saving grace is the voice performance of James Woods as Hades. Woods has a great time making Hades quite slimy during his dealings with Hercules in the vein of a stereotypical agent. This is one of my favorite roles of his and he makes the movie more bearable than it otherwise might have been. Also stars the voices of Tate Donovan as Hercules, Susan Egan as Megara, Danny DeVito as Phillocletes, Rip Torn as Zeus, Bobcat Goldwaith as Pain and Matt Frewer as Panic.

 

Also skip the Michael Bolton version of the song, "Go the Distance". This version is miles better.

 

For years I tried to keep up with the Disney movies, but Hercules was the first one I missed and just never got around to seeing. I wanted to see it, and it was mainly for Woods, an actor that I like (despite his current political psychosis). I saw the next few animated features, but by the early 2000's, and Atlantis: The Lost Continent, I got worse and worse about seeing them. Part of it was not working at a videostore any longer and getting to see them for free. I started seeing more animated films later in the decade thanks to renting them for someone else, though. Now I only track them down when someone recommends them.

While some rightfully singled out Stephen Fry's marvellous performance as Oscar Wilde I picked jude Law as my number 3 supporting actor for his role as his lover Lord Alfred 'Bosie' Douglas.

I remember an amusing review of Wilde in The Spectator. I like Jude Law, I've seen him on stage first in Les Parents Terribles, then in Ion, more recently as Henry V. He had a famous nude scene in Les Parents Terrible, also in Wilde and in another play or film. The reviewer in The Speccie evidently didn't like Law in Wilde. It quoted Oscar Wilde's famous line at U.S. Customs: "I have nothing to declare but my genius."  The reviewer went on to say, "Jude Law has nothing to declare but his p enis."

Wilde is a biopic about Oscar Wilde with Stephen Fry in the leading role. Fry is known as a supporter of gay rights, so he must have identified with his character. The background of Victorian London is well depicted.
