LOL, and what evidence is there that she and no other was being prepped as the actress of her generation? A generation I might add that featured multiple Oscar-winners Cate Blanchett, Frances McDormand, Hillary Swank, Emma Thompson etc. So Watson being nominated makes zero difference. She was merely one of several. Watson was well and truly behind the majority of them in the pecking order of leading ladies of the late 90s early 00s. I think you're basing all of this on subjective opinion rather than any factual basis. For one thing, Punch-Drunk love isn't even her most well-remembered performance (Breaking the Waves for sure).

I didn't hate it, but it's a massive step down from the first two films, and nepotism really bit Coppola in the arse with his daughter's miscasting. I mostly felt like nothing in the film really needed to be said, the first two said it all. Great performances by Eli Wallach, Andy Garcia, Joe Mantegna, and Talia Shire though.

I enjoyed The Last Jedi (I preferred the other two though). The fact that its critical rating was so high is equally as important as to why the audience reaction was so mixed/negative. So just because you think it damaged the brand does not make it objectively so. TLJ was a divisive film, but so was the next one (people tend to either like one or the other), and so was Solo. And guess what? So was Return of the Jedi. A lot of people hated the Ewoks. Did Return of the Jedi damage Star Wars? Of course not. Also, Solo had behind the scenes baggage leading into its release, which surely had a big role in its underwhelming box-office.

Read the post again. Weird Al is shaving his 'famous moustache' to play a different character in the film. I'm saying Weird Al hasn't frequently sported a moustache in years, so it's unlikely he needed to shave at all.
