    For those of you who don't know, they shot that film over 12 years from 2002 to 2014, and it's rocking a 98% on Rotten Tomatoes

    It's not for everyone, and I guarantee you, some of you will be bored to tears (in fact I can name them right off the top of my head, but I'm not trying to insult anyone).

    I really liked it. I bet it wins the Oscar.

    Well supposedly Birdman might win in what would be something of an upset, which I'd be fine because that movie was tits on toast

    JK Simmons is going to win Best Supporting Actor for Whiplash, and good for him, but I think Ethan Hawke might deserve it more. That dude came correct.

    Those are the only two of the nominees I've actually seen. They were both awesome. I think I like Boyhood more for sentimental reasons, but Birdman was cool too.

    Out of what I've seen my list is

    1. Birdman
    2. Boyhood (and it's a VERY close second)
    3. The Imitation Game
    4. Whiplash

    We have American Sniper, The Theory of Everything, and Grand Budapest still to watch, but we have them downloaded. I think it's too early to get Selma.

    Ah. I've seen Grand Budapest, too. It was so long ago that I forgot. It's awesome too, especially if you like any of his other movies. But I suspect even if you think some of us his other movies are too "quirky" it's still good.

    American Sniper seems too "Go America! Whooo!" for me. If I wanted that shit, I would have stayed in the military.

    I need to learn more about Whiplash, because I keep hearing so much about it.

    Whiplash is entertaining, but it's a 2 trick pony. You take away JK Simmons yelling at people, and the amazing way in which they filmed the actual drumming, and you're left with nothing.

    Story. But not tight like most movies. Just give it a try. It's good.

    It's a very relate-able movie. No matter who you are, you have shared experiences with at least one of the people in this film.
