A Clean Article Where A Boy Gets In A Circle

circleThe Circle is shaping up to be one of the big hits of 2016.  The movie, based on the social media/technology book by Dave Eggers (founder of internet humor site McSweeney’s) already stars Tom Hanks, Emma Watson, John Boyega, Patton Oswalt, and Bill Paxton.  And they just added Ellar Coltrane, the boy from Boyhood.  Keep your eyes on this movie, and I’m guessing we’ll be doing a geek book club on this novel in the near future.

The nominees are in so to quote the Joker from Heath Ledger’s Oscar winning performance in the Dark Knight, “And here…we…GO!

This year the Academy nominated only 8 films for Best Picture.  A very interesting group of films.  It looks to be between Birdman and Boyhood, but don’t sleep on Sniper making it a race.

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

First thoughts:  No Lego Movie in Best Animated Feature!?!?  No Life Itself in Best Documentary!?!?  Thought Steve Carrell would miss out on Best Actor but he bumped his way to the front of the line!  My worst movie of 145 films got a Best Foreign Film nomination as expected.

Expect more in depth commentary on who will win, who SHOULD Win, and any surprises or snubs along the way!

Watson’s #11-20 Best Movies of 2014…Silver Medalists, All!

This was a great year for movies, so I didn’t want to just discuss my top ten.  There were so many movies that were worthy of consideration. I’ll post the full list Thursday, but first here are the films that, while not worthy of top ten rankings, are surely praiseworthy.  With so many great films released, there is no shame in silver!
