My very own Oscars

Right after the Oscars, you must be here to read some serious review. Well, let me begin with saying “you won’t be finding here”. Instead I will share with you my humble comments on the movies I have watched sofar.

Get Out (Best writing – original screenplay)

So the best picture award goes to “The Shape of Water”. I haven’t watched it yet but I saw 5 other movies in this category. The Post was a big disappointment to me as I love Meryl Streep. I quite liked the Three billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri but had a feeling like it was too Oscar-ish. Instead of Dunkirk, I might like to see The Killing of a Sacred Dear in the list, which also starrs Barry Keoghan. The movie Get Out is definitely too much me but not really sure if it has the Oscar material. But above all, my oscar winner was Call Me by Your Name. I don’t know, maybe watched it at the right time and place. I was so moved…
In the actress in a leading role, I’m really sorry about Meryl Streep but I told you, the movie was a disappointment for me. Whereas the winner Frances McDormand, obviously deserves the award. Good movie… good acting. (Lesbian?)
In the animated feature film, the oscar goes to Coco! What a great movie was that. I guess it is a well deserved award. But on the other hand, thinking of all the great work that had been put to it, I can’t help but feel sorry for Loving Vincent. But these are not our measures, right?

Few other notes:

  • Victoria and Abdul, how could it miss the Costume design
  • Lady Bird doesn’t get any awards?
  • Never Again is not even candidate on Music (original song)

Mother! Ammmmazing!

Spoiler safe zone!
Those imdb points! I’m still not sure how much I should trust them, really. For the horror/thriller movie genre, tho, I have a scale. I don’t expect them to hit the 7’s or 8’s. Some movie slightly over 5,5 deserves a chance in my opinion. However for Mother!, I had a spare place. I had heard of it so much so that I wouldn’t ever care about the Imdb point.
You know, what?! I did just that. And I wasn’t wrong at all. I could proudly say it was my all time favorite or something close to that. First it took me a while to figure out exactly what was going on. Then it was even more interesting to watch. It didn’t even lose anything from its magic. I must say it deserves a second time watching. It might even be necessary. That much of mysteriousness I’m speaking about… so you get the picture.
To speak about the actings, both Javier Bardem and Jennifer Lawrence are amazing (with multiple m’s). Certainly there more than the two. You’ll see quite a bunch of celebrities in this movie, including Michelle Pfeiffer. I’m just going to put the trailer below but I’m not sure if it gives you enough of an impression of how good this movie is.
Meanwhile, I’ve just discovered that the imdb point of Mother! is currently 6,7. Although it’s quite a good point in its genre, honestly I found it quite low. I guess there are some people out there who didn’t quite understand the movie. Or better yet, don’t event trust those points 😉

Listen! Buika – Jodida pero Contenta

I am actually making a new collection and planning on setting up a playlist on Spotify. I’m coming across with new people especially after having moved to Barcelona. Obviously music has been one of the ice breakers on making conversations with these new people. I ask them to make a small list of artists or bands, along with a few songs of theirs that they like. The only condition is that these artists or bands shouldn’t be worldwide famous. So no madonnas in the list. In this aspect today’s song is from O&E from Turkey.
