All Quiet On The Western Front Sweeps BAFTA Awards

Posted February 19, 2023 by with 8 comments

Did anyone see this movie? I did not, and I’m sorry to say that I’m just not interested in yet another war movie (especially a remake that’s been done three times already), even if it’s an anti-war movie. Trailer for All Quiet On The Western Front:

The BAFTAs (the British equivalent of the Academy Awards) were today, and All Quiet On The Western Front won seven awards, including Best Picture and Best Director. Everything Everywhere All At Once— the most overrated and juvenile movie of 2022 (if you like schmaltzy superhero movies with jokes about butt plugs and lesbian lovers with hot dog fingers, perhaps this is the movie for you)—was all but shut out at the awards, but it’s still the frontrunner at next month’s Oscars. I finally saw Banshees Of Inisherin and liked it a lot, so it’s great to see that it picked up multiple awards. List of BAFTA winners:
