Academy Awards Nominations

They were announced today. Oh Boy. I do hate that the best picture was expanded past 5 movies. But here are the movies nominated for best picture this year:

American Sniper
Birdman
Boyhood
The Grand Budapest Hotel
The Imitation Game
Selma
The Theory of Everything
Whiplash

I've seen 3 of the 8. I have genuine interest in 2 of the ones I have not seen. And might force myself to watch the remaining 3.

What do you think will win?

Movie Review

Predestination-

An intersting scifi time travel flick.

The trailer looked cool. But I will say the movie is not what the trailer seems. I liked the movie better.

Ethan hawke is a temporal agent who stops crime before they happen. He is after the Fizzle Bomber who has been able to elude him for a long time.

That is really all you should know going in.

The time travel loops will certainly make your head hurt.

But it is all very interesting.

I dug it. Check it out.

Movie Review

Only Lovers Left Alive-

An awesome vampire flick.

My wife said it best saying that it was groundhog day like. Meaning that it showed these vampires had made good use of their centuries of time on earth, by learning to do impressive things. Speed read, play every instrument possible, etc.

I really liked this movie. It was slow and quiet, but it was a love story first that just happened to be about vampires.

Well worth seeing.

Trivia from IMDB:
There was some action in the film at first. But when Jarmusch was asked to add more he instead removed all of it.

Movie Review

Zero Charisma-

It is about an adult nerd who is the dungeon master for a RPG game he has been playing with his friends for 3 years.

Mostly a drama, with a hint of dark comedy in it.

Good acting.

A small quiet movie.

Certainly cringe inducing.

Quite touching. Well worth seeing.

Movie Review

Men, Women & Children-

A movie about technology and relationships, and how it’s pretty much doing nothing but hurting them.

It follows several teenagers and adults all in one town. I liked how it would put screens above peoples heads in large shots, showing how everyone is entranced by their phone, and not 100% involved in what is going on around them.

This leads to new involvements for people and missed parts of life for others.

It is certainly not a feel good movie.

Every single thing is not 100% believable, but it is a movie.

Well worth seeing. Ignore the critics and the fact that it was in theaters for less than a month.

Sort of indicative of the message the film makes. In a different time, it would be allowed to stay in theaters, find an audience, not be panned by hundreds of faceless “reviewers” on the internet (such as myself).
