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 : Into the Woods + Maleficent

Curl up with a nice cup of coffee (adult hot chocolate) snuggled under some blankets and pop in a movie! Doesn’t this sound like the perfect way to end the weekend! Today here are a couple movies to end the week (or start the week)!

Into the Woods is packed with A list actors such as Chris Pine, as the prince charming, Anna Kendrick as Cinderella, Meryl Streep as the Wicked Witch, Johnny Depp as the Big Bad Wolf, and Emily Blunt as the Bakers Wife! This film is the off spring of Les Miserables and all the Disney Princesses movies! What’s not to enjoy?

Maleficent tells a different story of the classic Sleeping Beauty, instead it follows Maleficent, the vengeful fairy who is driven to curse the princess. Only to later realize she may be the only person who can restore peace to their troubled land. Angelina Jolie is impeccable, as well as Elle Fanning and let’s not forget Vivienne Jolie-Pitt (yes that is Brangelina’s daughter) who plays the young Aurora. Although the actors were amazing the one thing that impressed me most was definitely the Costume Design by Anna B. Sheppard. It’s no wonder the Costume Design is nominated for an Oscar, this is Sheppard’s third nomination for this category. She was previously nominated for The Pianist and Schindler’s List.

Feature Film : Whiplash

Here’s our Feature Films (Oscars) continued!

Now who hasn’t had a crush on Miles Teller this last year? He has starred in several feel good movies such as Two Night Stand, That Awkward Moment, and who could forget his role in Spectacular Now? He is the Chandler Bing of his generation, and who doesn’t love Chandler Bing? But, Whiplash is a total change of character for him, he plays Andrew, a young drummer who enrolls in a cut-throat music conservatory and is mentored by an instructor who will stop at nothing to realize student’s potential. This instructor is none other than Oscar nominated J.K. Simmons (who you might recognize from his stint in Juno) in his mind there are no lines to cross, and if you do not play by his rules then he will make you look like a fool before he kicks you out of the room! Let’s just say he isn’t the nicest of guys (plus his bald head, muscles, and black ensembles make him look intense and terrifying). I may be biased saying I love this movie because it is following a drummer and the hard work that goes into that industry (granted I only played instruments for a few years as a teen, but never to this extreme). Hats off to you Miles Teller!
