Cramming for the Oscars- Pt 3

Last part. The part where we see how much I have accomplished. Did I check off all the movies I wanted to see off my list? Who will know? I do know I feel a bit crazy but exhilarated to do this. Never have I been so excited and determined to see movies. It was a bit tiring but a great experience.

(Addendum: this is the next to the last part. Going to do documentaries last. This is probably the last of the movies you care about. Though you should see some of the documentaries)

Paranorman

Pros:
-Coraline-esque (yayay)
-funny without being too cheeky or too adult (looking at you Shrek)
-Anna Kendrick
-small details made it great- kid with gauges, zombie faces, redneck snack food, mob dropping all sorts of weapons

-too short (hehe)
-made me cry
-can’t think of cons.

squirrel-bear-whatcha-thinking-about-nothin-just-bear-stuff

Best Picture Nominees (continued)

Amour

Pros:
– broke down and cried hard after this. Which doesn’t seem good but it was a cathartic thing. I feel cleaner.

-Insanely hard to watch because of its realness

-I do like the narrator’s voice. It is soothing
-Indian JESUS
-aww tiger doing cute tiger thing

Cons:
-not good if you are animals-getting-hurt sensitive
-not good if you like movies that aren’t ridiciously boring
-This movie was so boring I was wishing I could go back to watching old people die than this boy survive.
-I cried for those poor animals and then to find out it is all fucked
-It made me want to believe in God so I could hate him for having this movie made in his name.
