Am I the only one who thought “Birdman” with Michael Keaton was a horrible film???

I finally got around to watching “Birdman” with Michael Keaton since everyone is talking about it and raving about it but I hope I’m not the only one who hated it. Of course, the only good thing about it was Michael Keaton’s acting ’cause that’s his best acting role in many years but the movie, “Birdman or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance” was a very boring film and had no plot. I don’t get why people liked it so much and don’t understand why it won “Best Picture” at the Oscars last year. I think all that jazz drumming pretty much did it for me… that drumming was pretty annoying. The casting was good… I like Edward Norton and Emma Stone but the film was over acted and too much dialogue. I thought the film was disappointing and thought it was one of the worst films of last year. No offense to those who like it. Just my opinion and sticking with it.

Just realized something, “Birdman” IS the first live-action superhero film to win big at the Oscars…

Why are so many superhero fanatics so upset that a live-action superhero film can’t win Best Picture at the Oscars when a live-action superhero film just won big last night? That’s the movie “Birdman” which is a film about a superhero. “Birdman” may not be DC or Marvel but it’s still a superhero film. “Birdman” and “Big Hero 6” are proof that a comic book superhero film can make the Oscars in the future.

Could movies like “Batman vs. Superman”, “Justice League”, “Spiderman”, “Guardians of the Galaxy” and all that stuff make the Oscars for a “Best Picture” nomination in the future? Who knows. It’s just that the fact that “Birdman” and “Big Hero 6” were superhero films that made the Oscars opens the doors for more superhero films in the future.

That’s why I said that I’m glad that “Birdman” got the win despite “American Sniper” getting ignored ’cause “Birdman” winning is better than “Boyhood” and “Selma” winning, ya know what I mean? “Birdman” winning “Best Picture” was actually a good idea and probably well-deserved even if I haven’t seen the film yet but planning to.

Finally superhero flicks are getting the recognition at the Oscars. I wanted to see “Birdman” in the theaters but the film was only playing in selected theaters and didn’t get around to it so I’ll just wait for DVD rental.

People wanted superhero flicks to get nods at the Oscars and they got that last night, people are still complaining. Haters are gonna hate, I guess.

Review of the Oscars last night…

Yes, I did watch the Oscars last night. As usual, it turned out disappointing like they usually have been for the last several years. I was enjoying Neil Patrick Harris as host up until the point where he stripped down to his underwear and walked out on the stage half naked. I mean, did we really need to see that??? This isn’t “Magic Mike”. This is the Oscars. A family friendly event for national TV. I guess N.P.H. was desperate for attention and he got it. Sure, he is fit and in shape but he didn’t need to show that to the whole world. I’m sure all the gay men out there loved it, though. Whenever women show themselves half naked on award shows, they get into so much trouble for it by the media but I’m sure N.P.H. will get no flak for what he did. He’s a guy and he’s gay so that’s exactly how he’s gonna get away with it.

The awards given was disappointing like usual; however, I’m happy that “Ida” won for “Best Foreign Film”… that really was a good movie. I’m also happy that “Big Hero 6” won for “Best Animated Film”, that means Marvel just won their first Oscar and the Academy has never been too friendly with superhero films. It maybe an animated film but maybe a live-action superhero film winning an Oscar can be possible now.

My prediction of Patricia Arquette winning for “Best Supporting Actress” was exactly right as I figure she was gonna get it but her acceptance speech was a joke. Typical liberal, Hollywood. Nothing new. She promoted, “equal pay for women” and I’m like, what? She’s rich. A millionaire so why would she bring that up? Of course, when she said that, all the celebrity women in the audience went nuts. Meryl Streep’s reaction to Patricia’s speech was hilarious. These are all rich as hell women and they want “equal pay for women”? Doesn’t make a bit of sense of me.

Anyway, most of last night’s Oscars had “liberal” written all over it ’cause that’s what it is. Liberal Hollywood.

It was predictable that Bradley Cooper was gonna lose and “American Sniper” was gonna lose for “Best Picture” so American Sniper ended up winning one award which is for “Best Sound Editing”. They only did that just to give the film, “something”, ya know? “American Sniper” should have won everything but of course, the film couldn’t win the big awards ’cause I’m sure the Academy didn’t want to honor a “racist” film and they didn’t want to upset the liberals.

That is also the reason why “Selma” won for “Best Original Song” instead of “Everything Is Awesome” the Lego Song which I’m sure everyone was expecting to win. They just gave “Selma” best original song ’cause they knew they weren’t gonna win for “Best Picture” and they had to give “Selma” something as a way to keep Al Sharpton happy. If no blacks won anything, you can very well believe that Al Sharpton and his race baiting buddies would whine and cry about “diversity”. They just did that to save themselves from a media backlash.

As for “Birdman” winning for “Best Picture”, I’m probably one of the very few who haven’t seen that film yet but I’m glad that film won “Best Picture” though. “Birdman” winning the big night is better than “Boyhood” or “Selma” winning so I’ll take it. I do wanna see “Birdman”, it does look like an interesting movie and will see it when it’s available for DVD rental. It’s also a real shame that Michael Keaton lost to Best Actor too.

Last night’s Oscars was okay but could have been better. If you didn’t watch last night’s show, here are the winners:

Golden Globes nominees are out… “Birdman” leads nominations…

I haven’t seen “Birdman” with Michael Keaton yet but the film does look good and I do wanna see it. I’ll have to see that film when it comes out on DVD.

Anyway, here are the Golden Globes nominees… this is what the Oscars might look like too.

I haven’t seen a lot of those movies to be honest with you.

I do hope Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright wins for “House of Cards” ’cause that’s a really good show.

I also hope the film, “Ida” wins for “Best Foreign Film” ’cause that’s a really good movie. It’s on Netflix streaming if you wanna check it out. That film maybe a bit slow pacing but a really good story and powerful. I might watch it again this weekend. “Ida” is probably gonna get a nomination for the Oscars as well.

I have never even seen the HBO show, “True Detective” at all but I was meaning to check it out.
