Well hello friends, I haven’t wrote anything in a while. I did warn you I was lazy. Anyways, the Oscars are coming up this Sunday and most of you have probably not watched even half of the movies. Now you can’t go into Oscar night without any working knowledge of the movies nominated, so that’s why I’m here to help. And by help I mean make things worse. Whereas normal people would get knowledge from astute movie critics who have seen every movie, you are here to get knowledge from someone who hasn’t even seen all of the trailers. I will literally be reviewing these movies based on their trailers which I am seeing for the first time right now.
On the other hand, we have guest blogger Samantha Sobolewski, (applause) who lives for movies, and has a popular segment on Twitter called “Sobo’s Movie Reviews” which are usually more riveting than the actual film she’s reviewing. Where I fail in my assessment, hopefully she shines because she’s actually seen some of the movies. Or at least has a better grasp of the ones she hasn’t. Her thoughts will be in italics.
The competition for Best Picture this year is absolutely fierce. I have seen one (1) of the movies and it was actually pretty damazing. The D is silent. But that doesn’t mean the others aren’t worth watching (yes it does). Let’s take a look.
