2015 Oscar Prediction

The Academy Awards can be somewhat bias when it comes to the selection of their top category and next year’s ceremony will be no exception. 5 to 10 movies will be nominated  for best picture and over the years there’s been similarity/bias between with the genres. The top genres that is most likely to get a nomination are:

  • Bio-Pics – The Wolf of Wall Street grab a ton of nominations, but had the rug pulled from underneath them, winning not even one award at this years award. Theory of  Everything shows the same promise, or maybe Foxcatcher will be the bio-pic of the next year’s Oscars, without a doubt that Steve Carell will get a nom. for best actor and is my top pick to take home the statue come next year. Don’t forget about The Imitation Game the bio-pic of Alan Turing where Benedict Cumberbatch gave a stellar performance. This is the year of bio-pics.
  • Indie Films – Dallas Buyer Clubs made it into the history books when it became the fifth movie to win best actor and best supporting actor. Boyhood will be next year’s indie film and even if they don’t get any noms which is highly unlikely, they already broken movie record taking 12 years to make.
  • War Flick – Last year, war flicks missed out, although in previous year they find a way in the best picture category. Zero Dark Thirty (2013), War Horse (2012), The Hurt Locker which won best picture over Avatar in 2010. This year we have two to choose from, Fury and American Sniper, not only can both of these get a nom. for best picture but, David Ayer and Clint Eastwood are in the strong contenders to get a best director nomination.
  • Historical Films – based mostly slavery or human right. 12 Years a slave, which won this year, for not only best picture but for best supporting actress and best writing adapted screenplay. Over the years historical films has always find there way in the best picture category and next year will be no different with Selma, but will it finish filming in time.
  • Stunning Blockbuster/Epic – Earlier this year Gravity prove that a film can do well and win a ton of award. Interstellar shows the same promise, pleasing both movie-goers and critics alike. Gone Girl is a contender for best picture but is it too commercial for the Academy.
  • Musicals - Musicals are becoming more and more popular at the academy awards. With Chicago (2003) winning best picture and Les Miserables had multiply noms in 2013. This years musical is Into the Woods with alot of big name will it be able to continue the this trend. Too early to tell.

If a film is release late in the year it is more likely to get a nomination, regardless of the actor, director, writer and the studio. Other factor includes the content or theme of the film and major plot keyword such as “family tragedy” “race relation” etc contribute to grantee a nom.

WILL BE UPDATED

Procrastination

There’s so many thing that I should, could, want be doing right now. Not right now this instant, but right now with my life. The biggest one is college, I thought I’d be in college by now. Well that’s not true, I never thought I would even get the opportunity to go to college, but when I did, I got lost in the idea. I forgot that the thought of not going ever existed. And in a weird way that is OK because I was happy during the time leading up to finding out that I’m not going. I wasn’t second guessing myself, wondering if I’m going to fail. I just knew that I was going to go and do my best, which is – as cliché as it sounds – was good enough. When “the opportunity of going to college,” hit me, it vanished in the air like a fog that didn’t exist unless you saw it. No one saw it except me.
Now I’m in a new city miles away from “home” surrounded by people who loves me, or at least I think they do. Can you love someone who you’ve known less than 3 months, well love is too strong of a word, care is now like it. I’m surrounded by people who care for me very much. It’s doesn’t sound bad, just whiny and I don’t want to sound whiny or ungrateful. I have to be grateful, I have to be grateful this what I’ve been telling myself.

What the point of the post: Procrastination.

I stopped everything I love doing not on purpose, just lost of interest, I guess it’s not procrastination if you’ve lost interest. Blogging, reading, movies everything just felt like a waste of time. Write a post today, no tomorrow I can do it, tomorrow comes nothing happens, same thing with reading, movies and this went on for 2 months. That’s how I’ve haven’t done anything significant with my life for the last couple months, well more like past year. Not that blogging was significant, it was something, I thought I would get recognition, my writing would get better and I’d write a book or something like that. Now it feels like I’m wasting my life. Every decision I make now, affects the future and I can’t even decide what I want to be for Halloween. On top of that the “idea of college” has reappear and I’m the only one now who’s not seeing the fog.

I guess this is the part were you put a famous quote which is:

Change is INEVITABLE

Progress is OPTIONAL

I am changing and I choose to progress, and I see the change and I don’t know how I’m going to progress.

FINALLY!!!!!

No Words Needed. For a second I thought Lionsgate forget they have a movie to promotes.

Lets talk about the trailer, first I thought it would be longer like 2:30 minutes no complains just saying. Donald Sutherland portrayal of President Snow is spot on, better that Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss in my opinion. Katniss seems stronger in the movie than she does in the books which is great. That was one negative reaction from fans of the books, Katniss was “too whiny” in Mockingjay but have we all forgotten that she is a teenage girl. Aren’t all teenage girls whiny? Enough about the book back to the movie. Her reaction to see Peeta and knowing he’s alive, not what I was expected. When Katniss went to District 8, it looked just how I imagine it would be, so bad ass. EFFIE!!!!!!!! The movie got it so right with putting Effie in, I can’t wait to see how she adjust to life in District 13, something tells me she’s not going to like it that much. I read Mockingjay three times but it was long ago so my memory of it is a bit off, can someone please tell me what’s with the water. Characters I’m looking forward on seeing, Gale this is going to be the most of him we’ll be seeing on the big screen, and what the trailer shows we wont be disappointed. Cressida and President Coin, one thing I have to say is the make-up/Costume department hit it out the park with these two, from Cressida’s half-shaved head tattoo to President Coin’s hair, perfect. There is no word for the weapons, it’s just all done so well. I guess I did have a couple of words.

One question though when in the book will the part 1 ends? SPOILER ALERT, I think when they rescue Peeta and he attacks Katniss or When Finnick dies.

Let me know when you think it’ll end in the comments.

Box Office Breakdown (August 22)

This weekend  will be filled with tears or excitement, depending on what movie your planning on seeing. If you don’t know which movie to see, hopefully this will make it a lot easier. Here are the movies being release this weekend:

1. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.

download

Dwight is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord, and then watches his life go straight to hell. Chronologically, this story takes place prior to “The Big Fat Kill” featured in the film Frank Miller’s Sin City and explains how Dwight came to have a dramatically different face. Based on the graphic by Frank Miller who wrote and co-directed with Robert Rodriguez A dame to Kill For stars Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Rosario Dawson, Bruce Willis and Eva Green.

If you’re looking for violent, bloody, exciting movie to see this weekend this is exactly that, I would advice to watch the first Sin City film first. They are a lot of die-hard fans of the novel who been dying for a sequel. Does it have what it takes to take the number 1 spot away from TMNT we’ll see.

2. If I Stay

click for larger (if applicable)

Life changes in an instant for young Mia Hall after a car accident, killing her family puts her in a coma. During an out-of-body experience, she have to decide if she should go with her family or stay and live a life more difficult than she should ever imagine. If I Stay follow the trend of popular YA novels that being adapted in to movies. Check out my thought on the book at A penny for my thoughts (If I Stay). Directed by R.J Cutler and screenplay with the author of the book Gayle Forman and Shauna Cross, who also wrote the screenplay for What to expect when you expecting and Whip It. If I Stay stars Chloe Grace Moretz, Jamie Blackley and Mireille Enos.

If I Stay is a really emotion story, it has something that all young adult can relate to. It has heart, family love. If your planning on seeing this film make sure bring a box of tissues. Does it have what it takes to go up against TMNT and The Guardians, yes it does and it wouldn’t be a surprise if If I Stay comes out on top this weekend? 

There it is, the top two movies coming out this weekend, will they be enough to trump TMNT and The Guardians out of the top two? We’ll have to wait and see. In the meanwhile comment below the  what movie you’re going to see and which ones you think is going to take the top spots.
