Bradley Cooper in A STAR IS BORN

Willem Dafoe in AT ETERNITY’S GATE


Viggo Mortensen in GREEN BOOK

The Bookies Favourites:

  1. RAMI MALEK Bohemian Rhapsody 1/7
  2. CHRISTIAN BALE Vice 4/1
  3. BRADLEY COOPER A Star Is Born 7/1

Our Winner:

  • Viggo Mortensen (Green Book)– For a man who is not from New York (nor even American), is not fat (is more likely to be on the 100 hottest men lists) and for whom English isn’t even his first language, to deliver such a believable performance of an overweight Italo-American thug is quite astounding.

The Academy Award Winner

  • Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody)

MovieViews Reviews:

A Star is Born 2018 A worthy remake that grew on me as it went. Both lead roles were played very well and the songs were good, but I didn't buy some of the emotional bits and the British manager was just awful. Gordon 7
At Eternity's Gate 2018 Willem Dafoe is on fine form and the film's use of sound, colour and movement somehow captures the mental state of Van Gogh so that you feel you are inside his madness. Highly recommended. Gordon 8
Bohemian Rhapsody 2018 The acting is atrocious, the story so cleansed it isn't really a biopic at all and the cinematography gives everything a TV movie colourised glow that makes everything look staged. But for all that I still found myself enjoying the cheesiness of it all. Gordon 6
Green Book 2018 if you take it as a biopic of the driver and not of Don Shirley or an exploration of the Green Book itself, then it is a great film. Viggo was brilliant in his lead role and the chemistry with Ali worked well. Gordon 8
Vice 2018 Initially Vice appears to be just an excuse to re-do the Big Short formula and for Bale to dust off his Batman voice, but in fact it is another fascinating docu-dramedy from the master of this new genre, Adam McKay. Gordon 8
