STREET BEAT: ‘What movie from 2017 most deserves an Oscar?’

March 2, 2018

Compiled by Dorany Pineda in Koreatown.


“The movie with the young girl … ‘Lady Bird’ because it was very well executed. It’s the first time I’ve seen a female character in a movie that is not the Hollywood cliche of an ignorant or naive child coming-of-age.”

“‘The Shape of Water.’ I think it was interesting to see a disability played out on the big screen in a complex love role. … That’s something that I haven’t ever really seen and I really like Guillermo Del Toro’s work.”

“I didn’t even go to the theater in 2017 just because of school.”

“‘The Shape of Water’ … you can see yourself in it. … When people judge things like the creature was judged because it was unknown and it wasn’t even doing anything wrong. So you could relate that to us or to anyone that feels that way.”

Aizen Mume
“I don’t know what I really liked. I could only talk about the movies I didn’t like. … I walked out of ‘Thor: Ragnarok.’ I didn’t like that.”
