2015 Awards Season: Feature Film Highlights


The Academy Awards are taking place earlier this year (February 22), but there’s still time to catch up on some of the nominated movies! (up for best picture, directing, writing, acting, visual effects, music). As in previous years, I’ve picked a half dozen highlights.

Movie Review: American Sniper


The opening scene, with Chris’ rifle lens zooming into a child and primed to shoot, is in the trailer, but it doesn’t lessen thThere’s a collective applause and then reverent silence filled the theater as closing images concluded the film. “American Sniper” honors the memory of Chris Kyle, an exemplary life of service and sacrifice.e tension. It strikes terror in your heart and the firing sound will make your heart feel like it stop beating for a minute.

Golden Globes 2015


The funny ladies are back! Tina Fey and Amy Poehler didn’t need a charm for the third time, hosting the 72nd Golden Globes, as they already hit it out of the park in the last two years. The two had said that 2015 would be the last year for them hosting, which some interpreted that they could dish out anything without accountability.

Movie Review: Big Eyes


A strange true story, “Big Eyes” documents the story of Margaret Keane (Amy Adams, “American Hustle,” “Man of Steel”), a successful, closet painter in the golden era of the ‘50s and ‘60s.

Movie Review: The Imitation Game


In 1939, Alan Turing (Benedict Cumberbatch, “Penguins of Madagascar”) marches into Britain’s top-secret Government Code and Cypher School, applying for a job as a cryptographer. He spars with the commander in charge of the program, Commander Alexander Denniston (Charles Dance), astutely stating that the government is working on a stealth project, deciphering Enigma, a major communication device captured from the Germans.

Movie Review: The Theory of Everything


“When there’s life, there is hope.” Directed by James Marsh, “The Theory of Everything” tells a life story of the world-renowned astrophysicist, Stephen Hawking (Eddie Redmayne, “Les Miserables,” “My Week with Marilyn”). More of a love story than a tale of intellectual discoveries, it’s told from his first wife’s perspective, Jane Hawking (Felicity Jones, “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”), based on her memoir, “Traveling to Infinity: My Life with Stephen.”

Movie Review – The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I


“The Hunger Games” franchise has been a fierce success, both from the critics’ and public’s side. Since it premiered, there have been similar sci-fi YA adaptations; “Enders’ Game,” “Divergent,” “The Giver” and “The Maze Runner.” I greatly enjoyed every single one of them, but “The Hunger Games” reigns supreme.

Movie Review: Interstellar


If there’s one movie I was most looking forward to seeing this year, it was “Interstellar.” With a story shrouded in mystery, ambitious visual effects, directed by an acclaimed director and starring a top flight cast, it’s one of the most anticipated movies of 2014. “Interstellar” is imperfectly perfect in its stellar storytelling, simplicity of the plot and complicated details. A celestial tapestry of space exploration, time bender and heartfelt human story, it earns its place among the stars.

Movie Review: Nightcrawler


Lou Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal, “Source Code”) is desperate for a job. He scours and scrapes for anything. One night he runs into a freelance videographer (Bill Paxton, “Edge of Tomorrow”) filming a crash rescue, a footage that can be sold as headline exclusive to the highest bidding news station. This speaks to him on a primal level.

Movie Review: Gone Girl


Meticulously constructed, “Gone Girl” is layered with intricacy and laced with dread and wit. A deliriously diabolical psychological thriller, it won’t be gone from our collective mind anytime soon. “Gone Girl” will remain one of the most talked-about films of the year.
