Oscars 2016 Top Six
Oscars 2016, tonight is the night. But let’s be honest now; aside from the running gag about DiCaprio and his Oscar, most of us don’t really care anymore. Who remembers last year’s Best Picture winner? Exactly. So Academy Awards aside, this is my personal top six of the year. Each of them explained in four lines because:
“It’s Sunday and any effort is a wasted effort.”
-Random dude on the internet
Mad Max: Fury Road
What? Basically one long car chase…with explosions…and sand. A lot of sand.
Why? More action than you’ve seen all year -wink-
Stars? Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult
Room (read full review)
What? One way trip to the therapist.
Why? You’ll sit on the side of your bed, look at the ceiling and wonder: “What is life?”.
Stars? Brie Larson, Jacob Tremblay(!!), Joan Allen
What? Good cops meet real cops, dreams and ideals getting crushed by reality.
Why? Uncompromising approach, gorgeous to look at and even better to listen to.
Stars? Emily Blunt, Benicio Del Toro, Josh Brolin
What? Artificial intelligence at its best.
Why? Silent, creepy and beautiful; 2015’s hidden gem.
Stars? Alicia Vikander, Domhnall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac
Creed (read full review)
What? Black Rocky; same same, but different.
Why? Looks, character and a sense of humor; a total package.
Nominations? 1 -wait what?-
Stars? Michael B. Jordan, Sylvester Stallone(!!), Tessa Thompson
Straight Outta Compton
What? A story about loyalty, money, Gangsta Rap and police brutality.
Why? Because you won’t find a better movie about five black guys and a Jew.
Nominations? 1 -seriously, guys?-
Stars? O’Shea Jackson Jr., Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell
Special mention: The Martian
*cue the inspirational music* Wether they win or lose tonight, these are the true winners for me. All six have my stamp of approval and that means something because…euhm…I watch a lot movies, ok? Oh and I have my own website and stuff. Yeah, that’s it.
So take a look, have fun with it and expect more reviews and recommendations at blaudruk.org!
