Awards season

January 13, 2015

A nerd’s 12 best and worst films from 2014.

Highlights:

  • Snowpiercer as ‘Film most like a D&D Dungeon Crawl’ (and still no UK DVD release, wtf?)
  • Guardians is definitely the best comic book movie/best movie
  • Hadn’t heard of Love is Strange but quite interested
  • Still want to see Jodorowsky’s Dune but can’t stream it anywhere :/

In other awards chat I saw Birdman last week and absolute loved it, I know a few people who got bored halfway through but I thought it was outstanding. It could sweep 9/10 Oscars easily and be deserving of them.

The year is 2007. Crime is at an all time high and the law has a plan to wipe it out! CAPTAIN AMERICA (Chris Evans), a Vietnam vet who was given super strength by a military scientist, Abraham Erskine (Cillian Murphy) is now America’s new crime fighter. When he refuses to kill an innocent Senator he is back stabbed by the very people who made him! He’s out for revenge. If you’re going to make enemies, you better make sure it’s not America!

Really rather good! Makes me both want to rewatch Robocop (Clarence Boddicker is one of my favourite 80s character names) and Snowpiercer. Which still hasn’t been released in the UK. On DVD or in the cinema. Seriously. I can order French, Spanish, and Italian versions but I can’t just buy a standard English Region 2 copy. WTF. I want to give you my money!
