For me there is just very little comparison, but of course I've made adjustments like everybody else. I watched a film--oh something, what was it--on YouTube recently. It was....a horror film. Oh yeah, THE VAMPIRE from 1957. No classic, but perfect at 2 a.m. when I'm supposed to be working on something (Hey, nothing was coming in.)
I heard good things about THE NEST. I'm glad you got to see it in a theatre.
I think we will be hearing about Ms. Coon for a long time. Law and Reid are pretty much established, of course. Ever see Ms. Reid in THE MOTHER? A fearless performance that deserves to be better known.
THE NEST was released in quite a few theaters (not just drive-ins). It was fairly well received (esp. Coon), and may turn out to be a player with AMPAS.
Stranger things have happened. Like "A Little Night Music" winning for Best Adaptation Score over the non-nominated Ralph Burns' exemplary work in NEW YORK, NEW YORK.
And then of course there is always gonna be CRASH winning over BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN. A disgusting obscenity.
