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)!
Feature Film : American Sniper ; Birdman ; Foxcatcher
One of my favorite films of the Oscar season! Plot: U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle (Bradley Cooper) takes his sole mission — protect his comrades — to heart and becomes one of the most lethal snipers in American history. Despite grave danger and his struggle to be a good husband and father to his family back in the States, Kyle serves four tours of duty in Iraq. However, when he finally returns home, he finds that he cannot leave the war behind.
Truly impeccable performance by Bradley Cooper that will lead him to winning Best Actor in a Leading Role at the Oscars! (Fingers crossed)
This film has an all star cast including Michael Keaton, Zach Galifianakis, Edward Norton, Emma Stone and many more. Michael Keaton plays a washed up actor, who once played an iconic superhero, who battles his ego and attempts to recover his family, his career, and himself in the days leading up to the opening of a Broadway play. Who else is cheering for Emma Stone to win the Oscar this year! (ME)!
I don’t even want to tell you the plot of this film because it is not as good as the entire movie!!!!!!! LITERALLY NO WORDS! And can I point out that while watching I had an epiphany that the main character was once The 40-year-old Virgin! Crazy good film!
Feature Films : Still Alice ; Beyond the Lights ; The Imitation Game
Three more Oscar Nominated films to watch this weekend!
Still Alice featuring Kristen Stewart, Julianne Moore, and Kate Bosworth follows Alice, a happily married woman with three grown children who starts to forget words and soon receives a devastating diagnosis. This film is spectacular, Julianne marvels in strength for this character, and proves she deserves Best Actress in a Leading Role at the Oscars.
Beyond the Lights follows superstar singer, Noni, who is forced by fame to lose herself, until she meets Kaz, a young cop who works to help her find the courage to develop her own voice. This film is a sort of Nicholas Sparks love story mixed in with a little MTV. All around good vibes and really great music too!
The Imitation Game is based during World War II, mathematician Alan Turing tries to crack the enigma code with help from fellow mathematicians. It is a moving tribute to an extraordinary man.
