The Academy Awards are tomorrow night. So it’s only right that I issue my movie awards for the year. Now I have to let you know that I have my own special categories and qualifications. First of all any movie that I have seen this year qualifies. It doesn’t matter if the movie came out 10 years ago. This mean that Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo could be my movie of the year. Also I have no problem saying that a movie sucks. If it was bad it was bad. So, I will break it down, and try to keep it simple.
*Please note that I do not plan on seeing Black Swan. I have seen enough reviews of this film to know it will make me vomit at some point in time. I put the over/under at 15 minutes.
Movies of the Year
The King’s Speech
This movie was dope. I was skeptical going in, but it surpassed all expectations.
I enjoyed it, but come on. We’ve seen this genre of sports movie in all its possible forms. The movie didn’t surprise me, but it was worth seeing.
Even though I still can’t figure it out. I’m pretty sure something cool happened. Plus I enjoyed the way they made the city block turn upside down. The moral of this story is if
This is a great movie. Ben Affleck did a good job directing.
The Social Network
This was my favorite movie this year
I know it came out a while ago, but notice my qualifications.
“What Was That” Movies of the Year
Alice in Wonderland
I thought this would be worth my time, but I was sadly mistaken. This thing just didn’t work.
This is the poster child for when 3D goes too far. It reminds of 1997 when skater jeans were in style, and everyone was wearing Jincos. We have to get this #D thing under control.
I don’t know if you wasted your time watching this movie, but I sure didn’t. I saw enough in the previews to make me pass on this. I would venture to say, that theres not enough steroids in Hollywood to lure me into watching a Sylvester Stallone action film.
I think this movie was supposed to me laugh, but it confused me. I’m still trying to figure what was going on.
This should have never happened.
Actors of the year
Geoffrey Rush, The King’s Speech
This dude is my pick for performer of the year. He was incredible.
Jesse Eisenberg, The Social Network
He killed it.
Don Cheadle, Brooklyn’s Finest
Not a good movie, but a great performance
Jeremy Renner, The Town
It’s official; dude is a beast when he’s in his element. Renner takes over any time he’s on the screen.
Clint Eastwood, Gran Torino
I’m not an Eastwood fan, but this was dope. I would have put him as actor of the year, but something tells me he won’t qualify.
Christian Bale, The Fighter
He was great in the movie. I just hope he was acting.
Actresses of the year
Hailee Steinfeld, True Grit
She was great.
Kate Winslet, Revolutionary Road
I finally finished this movie, and she was great.
Melissa Leo, The Fighter
She was great at portraying the classic overbearing parent, that can’t get her life together.
Amy Adams, The Fighter
She sold the idea of the hard edge woman from Boston. I even felt like I was in Boston. (What did I just say? Truth is I’ve never been to Boston. I just assume it looks like what I’ve seen on T.V.)
Natalie Portman, Black Swan
I’m going to take everyone’s word for it, and assume she was great. I do not plan on watching this film. In case you forgot why, pleas reread the first paragraph.
“Please Stop Making this!” Movies of the Year
For Colored Girls
I like Tyler Perry’s “Black men a terrible” movies just as much as the next black guy, but I think this is enough.
It was funny at first. Now the desperation to stay relevant is saddening.
Little Fockers and Shrek 4
I’m knocking both of these out with one shot. Please stop. If not for me, do it for the kids.
I really want to like this movie, but there was nothing ne. I think it’s reached its limit, unless somehow they could set up a fight between Jason and Freddie. That would be something worth seeing.
I not sure who win what, but if I were you I would bet on my predictions. The good about being me is, I’m not you, and I don’t trust me.
