The Oscars are set to show on Feb 26th. I suddenly realized that I haven’t seen any of the movies except two.
So here are my reviews on the movies I have not seen based on what I know.
I know … weird.
But I apparently do everything half-ass so lets continue the half-assing!
- The Artist
You know, I do wanna see this movie. I want to see if we, nowadays, can channel back when movies were picture perfect cinema.
The Artist takes place in Hollywood in 1927. The movie bases about a silent film star who feels he is fazing out because talking in films is now being introduced. He then meets a young dancer who is looking for her big break.
It’s a romantic comedy and it looks cute. Plus the fact that I never heard of the main actor and actress at all.
So two thumbs up for originality and the whole black and white idea until further notice.
2. The Descendants
I have heard two different opinions on this movie. One said it sucked and the other said it was very good. So I am a bit conflicted. I would rent this movie rental worthy. So in case it does suck at least I didn’t sell my soul for a theater ticket. What am I talking about? I am a mother with three very small kids of course I would sell my soul to go see a movie in an actual theater!!!
Oh yeah, the movie. From what I hear, George Clooney plays the part of a father who tries to reconnect with his two daughters after his wife suffers a boating accident. The wife is on life support. Somewhere in between, George Clooney finds that his wife was cheating on him. So he takes his daughter with him to confront the young real estate broker, who was having an affair with his wife.
This sounds emotional and thought-provoking.
And I hope he pounds the shit outta that real estate broker.
I am going to say one thumbs up and the other is still in the bathroom after finishing some Taco Bell so he is undecided.
Nope. Don’t wanna see it but I know I am going to see it against my will!!!
4. War Horse
I am a bit disappointed. This movie looks really awesome. However, it seems like it’s about a love story between a young boy and a horse.
A boy and his horse are inseparable. However, when the family falls onto hard times, the horse is sold to the British cavalry. The boy meanwhile joins the army and soon finds his horse. Little does he knows the horse has been through a crazy ordeal. Now the horse must be sold.
Will they be able to stay together?
God I don’t wanna cry already!!!!
Two thumbs down for the pressure in my head!!!
So there you go, a quick highlight on a few of the nominees of best picture. Please let me know if they were good or not, or if, as usual, I am full of shit.
P.S. Where are the zombies?? Zombies deserve Oscars too!!
