Top 10+ Music, Movies, and Visual Art of the Week (2020)

NOTE: This is a log of my favorite works of music, cinema and/or visual art for the given week. The rankings here will not necessarily parallel my overall rankings, as these are only what I favored for the given week. To qualify for inclusion, the work must be rated 6.8/10 or better (or at least was at some point during the week). This log will also include updated ratings for my various lists (below the "Top 10+" section)

Below that, there will be a running listing of my "Top 50 Works of Art of the Year". This is simply a log of my favorite art over the course of this whole year, whether old or new to me. This list is cumulative, week-to-week, until its final standings at the end of the year.

Recommendations and suggestions welcome. For my criteria, go here: http://www.besteveralbums.com/phpBB2/vi...hp?t=15503

Just updated the best of Coppola (plus GF 3 to complete revisits for the series), who I started revisiting a couple weeks ago (see GF Part 1 and Conversation updates in previous log). While doing so I just learned that Scaruffi too has just updated Coppola's page with ratings -- looks like from a day or two ago (ratings to all films not just his most famous). I think he now overrates Conversation slightly (though an 8 isnt hard to understand, I think its first half development may be a little too slow to accumulate into that high of a rating, but either way the difference between 7.5 and 8 isnt all that much and I can understand). And he possibly underrates GF # 1 slightly now (even though I downgraded it last viewing so again not hard to see where he is coming from. I considered maybe moving it to 7.8 or 7.7 then, but not down to 7.5 ... A little low for it imo).

Anyway, slightly awkward to be updating mine just before/same time/just after, but there you go... (Very rare that we happen to be working on the same artist at the same time).

Scaruffi's Coppola ratings: https://www.scaruffi.com/director/coppola.html

Note: I have yet to revisit Apocalypse Now (recently) so it remains to be seen if my 8.1 still holds or not. Either way his 7.5 was expected. I will most likely be revisiting that and Dracula next, and that will probably be as far as Ill go with Coppola in this round.

I've run out of time to work much on cinema (except here and there but not nearly what I had been doing in the previous few months).

So I am going to revive my revisits and updated ratings for albums rated 7.2 and below. Not sure how long I'll be at these, but I will probably continue to use this log for updates, though I may turn this into its own list & thread in the future.

Below is a list of albums rated 7.2 or less. This is not at all a complete list. These are just the ones I've revisited within the last year and so am more certain of where they stand in relation to my current standards. For years I didn't track my ratings very consistently for this range (especially below 6.8/10) so I am going back through a lot of these lower ratings for my own curiosity, interest and entertainment and also to polish up or double check my ratings accuracy; also to better define the lower echelons of my ratings scale (on my criteria page).

Recommendations, discussion, etc, is all welcome.

When you get around to them...
- I predict a 6.7 for the Counting Crows' debut if you feel like evaluating that one
- Curious why Sonic Youth's "Dirty" is better than Nirvana's "Nevermind"

Thanks!

Is Counting Crows missing? Should already be on there as I revisited it during the past year including the last time I was updating these. Think I had it at 6.5 even but Ill give it another spin soon.

Ill have to revisit Dirty to say anything worthwhile about it. Just not very clear in mind at the moment...
Could go either way though.

Most recent ratings were...

A New Hope: 7.4/10
Empire: 7.0/10
Jedi: 5.6/10

(Though Hope and Empire are not that recent)

Thematically Jedi might be the most compelling though it is pretty up and down in terms of execution (loses a bit of steam during its middle third). Empire is probably the most perfectly captured and has the best cinematography (the environments/city scapes are often shot with a greater attention to atmosphere and attain a sense of elegance and grandeur, and the final battle and scenes between Luke and Vader are very well done). A New Hope may still be the best because it is such a creative amalgamation of genres and facets, while shot like something between an early-to-mid-period Ford film and The Wizard of Oz (sort of a plus in how it plays like both an epic that a child might imagine and a comic serial but perhaps a limitation in the art it couldve ultimately attained). Anyway, it consistently evokes Ford Westerns (the vistas and horizons and 'monument valley' of the sand environments) particularly The Searchers (Luke's family gets massacred, the salvage of the captured princess, the search for community/home/self); 'Kurosawa' band of characters and updates to the samurai, religious overtones/new age philosophy, The Odyssey, etc. And there is a sense of childlike wonder and discovery as these elements are introduced and converged into the character arcs and climactic scenes. Empire has less to it even if the relationship between Vader and Luke is most compelling and reaches its effective peak and even it is the more deftly handled, probably better executed in terms of cinematic craft.

(I do sometimes think Empire deserves the higher rating and I almost never feel set in my ratings of any of the 3).
