Happy Oscar Day!

I'm posting my rankings. I'm really so busy that I didn't find time to finish Best Actress, but I had a change of heart anyway. So regard that actress ranking as a draft that can change once I finish the year. It was a decent year (better than 2012) but as you'll see there was one movie that truly blew me away. The rest was OK, but nothing particularly mindblowing. The best category was easily Best Actor for me. Without further ado,

I'm so glad you like Julia Roberts, I feel like she was so good in August: Osage County and that you like Sandra Bullock =) And Cate Blanchett of course and that you choose Leo for 1. I haven't seen Captain Phillips yet, but I have a feeling Barkhad is good!!!

Surprised in the change in Amy Adams rating :O I agree with your pick for best picture, although 12 Years a Slave would be a very close second for me.

Movies Reviews said...

happy death day trailer I don't review films, but I felt I had to counter the "one star" ratings from people who evidently didn't "get" this modern sci-fi masterpiece. I have to say I'm baffled by the extremely low reviews from some people, especially those who claim they went to sleep during the movie (is it fair to give it one star if you didn't see all of it?), or those who claim they are doing it to counter the "fake" ten star reviews.

I am giving this a ten because this movie single-handedly restored my faith in cinema as capable of giving me an "experience" in the theater. This is not a perfect film. That's not why I gave it a ten. I gave it a ten because of its vision and its impact. I'd say it's a cross between Alien, Arrival, Monsters, and 2001. watch rampage full movie online free

If you don't like films that create an environment and put you in it to experience something, you probably won't like this. It's not a straight linear sci-fi film where you will have all your questions answered. Instead, it will make you think about what life and death is, about what ties us together, and it will give you a few scares along the way, and show you things you have never seen in other films. It will also convey how important the soundtrack can be in a film. watch the devils candy 2017 online free hd


It's tragic that other countries didn't get a chance to see this in the theater. For anyone watching this overseas on Netflix, I recommend you watch on the largest television you can find with the best sound system you can get, and crank it. If you've read the book, Garland says this was created as a sort of "dream" of the book, and it's only roughly based on that work. If you have read the book first, you need to reset your expectations going in. watch Avengers Infinity War online


Again, this is not a "paid" review, it's not a "fake" review. I experienced what I can only describe as a near-religious experience in the theater watching this film, and a repeated view at home brought all those feelings back. It's a tremendous work, and I can't wait to see what Garland does next.If you have to bribe your friend with the 70" television and Atmos sound system, do it. It's worth it to experience this film to the fullest. I wish I could see it for the first time again in the theater. happy death day nude
