Oscars 2017: The Winners!

Here we are! The statues have been handed out! The winners are marked Green if I chose correctly, Red if I was wrong. I normally average around 50% in my predictions. Is this the year I break through?

Holy Shit…best picture…. I cannot believe what happened…

Here we are! The Nominations for the Academy Awards have been announced and now we begin reviewing the films! I missed the movie marathon due to pneumonia and a death in the family, so my hopes of seeing everything fell flat. However, I managed to see a few more of the nominated films, including the 2 big ones. Covered here are:

Star Trek Beyond, Suicide Squad, 13 Hours, Jungle Book, Manchester by the Sea, Hail Caesar!, La La Land, Moonlight, and the best song nominees. Continue reading Oscar Watch 2017: Part Two

Razzies 2017!

1452652389-Razzies

The answer to the Oscars, the Razzies are for bad films and performances. My crap detector has caused me to see far fewer bad films than in the past. This is not a good thing. One cannot completely appreciate great art unless you are exposed to garbage as well. I take exception to Batman vs Superman being so attacked. It was ok, hardly as bad as advertised. I am a bit shocked that Gods of Egypt did not win big. It was truly horrible.

I’ve also been binge watching “The Borgias”, the showtime series on the late 14th century Pope Alexander VI (Rodrigo Borgia) and his dysfunctional family. Good stuff!

Here we are! The Nominations for the Academy Awards have been announced and now we begin reviewing the films! I have acquired tickets for a 2 Saturday marathon, starting next week, where I will see ALL of the Best picture nominees in a movie theater- A first! This leaves me free to chase down as many of the nominees in the other categories that I can! Last year I would cover 2-3 movies per post, but I thought I would start with everything I’ve seen up to this point:

Captain Fantastic, Kubo and the Two Strings, Zootopia, O.J.: Made in America, The 13th, Florence Foster Jenkins, The Lobster, Rogue One, Doctor Strange, Fantastic Beasts and where to find them, Arrival, and Hidden Figures.
