    This was a great movie, though can’t see it winning an Oscar. Very good though!

    I’d like to see the Academy broaden its scope for what they consider award-worthy. Theoretically, within any genre or style of film there are worthy films.

      Definitely agree for costume design! It’s a period piece within a superhero, a lot of imagination had to go into it!
