Feature Film : Two Days One Night, Inherent Vice

Here are the last films out of the list of 18 films nominated for the Oscars (there’s more nominated but these were the only ones I was interested in). I hoped you loved all the movies as much as I did, I am pretty thrilled this is the first year I have actually watched all the Oscar films I wanted to! Enjoy the Oscars tomorrow night!

Two Days, One Night follows a young Belgian mother, who discovers that her workmates have opted for a significant pay bonus, in exchange for her dismissal. She has only one weekend to convince her colleagues to give up their bonuses so that she can keep her job. (beware there are subtitles)

Inherent Vice is a period film set in 1970, that follows a drug-fueled Los Angeles detective, Larry “Doc” Sportello, who investigates the disappearance of a former girlfriend.

Feature Film : Interstellar, Unbroken, Mr. Turner

Interstellar is beautiful film about a young father chosen to save the human society. Not only is this film a fantastic CGI action packed film, it is also a love story between a father and daughter, it sounds cheesy but it is far from it. Truly not what I was expecting (in a very great way). It also has some surprise celebrity appearances.

Unbroken : After a near-fatal plane crash in WWII, Olympian Louis Zamperini spends a harrowing 47 days in a raft with two crewmen before he’s caught by the Japanese navy and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp. Directed in a stunning way by Angelina Jolie this film is true inspiration about a brave man.

Mr. Turner is a film about an exploration of the last quarter century of the great British painter J.M.W. Turner’s life.

Feature Film : Selma : Wild : The Judge

Selma follows Martin Luther King’s campaign to secure equal voting rights via an epic march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama in 1965. David Oyelowo plays the inspiring Martin Luther King alongside Oprah Winfrey who plays Annie Lee Cooper as well as produces the film. This period film is inspiring and powerful! Loved watching it! And the music by John Legend and Common is also up for an Oscar!

Wild follows Cheryl Strayed, played by Reese Witherspoon, as she hikes 1,100 miles as a way to recover from a recent catastrophe. This film also received two Oscar nominations, one for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role for Reese Witherspoon, and Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role for Laura Dern.

Robert Downey Jr. stars in the film The Judge alongside Robert Duvall, as a big city lawyer who returns to his hometown where his father (Duvall), the town’s judge, is suspected of murder. Hank (Downey Jr.) sets out to discover the truth and, reconnects with his estranged family. Any film with Robert Downey Jr. is a success to me (especially with is sarcastic one-liners)!
