Can the Oscars ever leave politics out of everything for once? My god!!!

Last night’s Oscars was predictably the worst Oscars ever. A lot worse than last years. This year’s Oscars was even more political than last year as well. Chris Rock was boring and it was expected that he was gonna call Hollywood racist for not having black nominees. *yawn* There was of course, liberal politics all over last night. Last night’s Oscars was about the “Oscars So White” and race relations mostly. Last night’s Oscars also promoted sexual abuse (thanks to Joe Biden) and Climate Change (thanks to Leo). I’m tired of the Oscars bringing politics into everything lately. The Oscars are supposed to be about celebrating movies but all celebrities wanna do is spread messages and talk about the problems going on in liberal land.

Most of the awards given were terrible. I didn’t think “Mad Max: Fury Road” deserved all that attention ’cause it wasn’t that great of a movie. I was also disgusted that Sam Smith won for that James Bond song ’cause “Writing On The Wall” is a crappy song even though “Spectre” was a really great film. I wish “Spectre” could have picked a better theme. They should have used Radiohead’s theme instead. Of course, they had to choose Sam Smith ’cause I think the only reason he was picked ’cause he’s an openly “homosexual” man and you know how libtard Hollywood love their homosexuals. If Sam Smith wasn’t a part of the Oscars then they would have gotten called a homophobe.

Other Oscars upset was of course when Sly lost his Oscar to some actor I’ve never heard of before which is lame. Sly deserved it but of course the Academy didn’t give it to him. Sly lost the Oscars twice now. He lost back in 1977. Ah well… there’s always another time for Sly to win an Oscar so never say never, y’all. Keep in mind there is still “Creed 2” coming and possibly “Creed III” so there’s always another time for Sly to get his Oscar. I know everyone wants Sly to get his Oscar and I think he will sometime in the future. Maybe for “Creed 2” like I said.

There were a few good choices that the awards went to, though. I’m happy that the “Amy” doc won ’cause that was a good documentary. I’m happy that Leo Dicaprio won his first Oscar and I’m happy that the director for “The Revenant” won.

Another big upset from last night was “The Revenant” lost to the “Spotlight” on BEST PICTURE. What is it with the Oscars and Michael Keaton lately? Last year “Birdman” won Best Picture and now another Michael Keaton movie wins Best Picture which was “Spotlight”. Do the Oscars have a hardon for Michael Keaton? Seems so.

Anyway, it’s no surprise that “Mad Max” and “The Revenant” both lost “Best Picture” simply because they are very violent movies and you know the Academy was never friendly with violent movies. They always go for the serious drama films.

Last night’s Oscars was pathetic and I wished I could take my 3 or 4 hours back that I wasted.

Watch Arnold’s awesome response to Sly’s loss. Arnold uploaded that video immediately after the “Best Supporting Actor” category so you can tell he was watching the Oscars too.

My question is where were all the big name A-Listers last night??? No Tom Hanks, no Tom Cruise, no Brad Pitt & Angie, no John Travolta, no Alec Baldwin, no Dustin Hoffman, etc. All those guys usually appear at the Oscars every year but they were no where in sight. I assume they were boycotting for the “Oscars So White” thing is probably why. That’s probably why they had Joe Biden there ’cause they needed a big name to keep the liberals happy.

I don’t think the Oscar for “Best Picture” is gonna go to “Mad Max: Fury Road” after all…

I’m actually pretty happy with the winner results of last night’s “Golden Globes”. It seems that the awards went with the right people. I’m so glad “Mad Max: Fury Road” didn’t get the big win for “Best Motion Picture – Drama” last night. Instead that winner went to “The Revenant”. I have not seen “The Revenant” yet but will when it’s available for rental.

Here are the results of last night’s Golden Globes:

I hate award shows but I watch the Globes and the Oscars to see what movies and stuff are gonna win awards since I’m a huge movie buff and all.

So it’s looking like that “Mad Max: Fury Road” isn’t gonna win Best Picture at all at the Oscars. It’s looking like either “The Revenant” or “The Martian” will get the Best Picture win at the Oscars, I’ll bet your money on it. It’s most likely that “The Revenant” is going to win big.

Anyway, I’m glad Sly won for “Creed” and glad that Matt Damon won for “The Martian” ’cause they were both great performances. Matt is probably gonna get another Oscar too for that “Martian” role. I saw “The Martian” in theater myself so I knew that was a great performance. Matt Damon already is an Oscar winner for his screenplay of the film “Good Will Hunting”, he’ll get another Oscar nod for “The Martian” for sure.

I don’t care for award shows anymore but I just want to see Sly get his recognition for his acting talent which he totally deserves finally. I’m really am happy and proud for Sly as I’m sure the rest of his fans are too.

Critics are still hailing “Mad Max: Fury Road” as the best film of 2015… really???

I just re-watched “Mad Max: Fury Road” on BluRay for the second time to see if I can have a change of heart with the movie but unfortunately, my opinion still stands. “Mad Max: Fury Road” is not that great of a movie like everyone says it is. Some of the action scenes were fun but that’s all it is to me… an action movie. I think the main reason why I didn’t like it too much is ’cause of that lame storyline with the pregnant women in the movie. I also never cared for the villain, Immortan Joe which is a pretty dumb villain, in my opinion. Plus the film had a bit too much CGI and I still don’t like Tom Hardy as Mad Max. If Mel Gibson was still in it then the film would have definitely been more watchable. The script for “Fury Road” was horrible as well.

I wouldn’t say “Mad Max: Fury Road” is one of best films in 2015 ’cause it isn’t. I also wouldn’t be surprised that the film would win for Best Picture for the Oscars and it’s probably gonna end up winning Best Picture as well.

As for my choice for Best Film of the year in 2015??? Well, you’re gonna have to wait for my “Top 15 Best Movies” video for that which is coming soon!

NBR names “Mad Max: Fury Road” as Best Film, it could win Best Picture at the Oscars as well…

The NBR has released their Best of list this year and they picked “Mad Max: Fury Road” as their choice for Best Film of 2015. Could it also win “Best Picture” at the Oscars as well? Anyway, I disagree with everyone saying that this is the best film ever ’cause I went and saw it myself earlier this year. I didn’t think it was all that great. Not because of all the feminism stuff that are in the movie, I didn’t like it ’cause it wasn’t a good movie. I didn’t like Tom Hardy as Mad Max.

Even though the Academy was never that friendly toward violent movies, it’s probably gonna get the nomination for Best Picture as well so expect “Mad Max: Fury Road” to pick up the most nominations.

I’m very happy that the NBR gave Sylvester Stallone the nod for “Best Supporting Actor”, though. Stallone deserves to get recognized for his acting talent. Stallone is mostly known as an action star yes but give him the right film, he can show his real acting chops. I haven’t seen “Creed” but gonna go see it on Thursday when I do my Christmas shopping.

As far as “Mad Max: Fury Road” goes, maybe I should give the film another look and maybe it’ll grow on me the second time… who knows?

Film Review: “Mad Max: Fury Road”

Starring: Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron

Directed by: George Miller

So today, I went to the movies to check out the new Mad Max movie and here is my review:

Plot/Synopsis: An apocalyptic story set in the furthest reaches of our planet, in a stark desert landscape where humanity is broken, and almost everyone is crazed fighting for the necessities of life. Within this world exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order. There’s Max, a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos. And Furiosa, a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland.

“Mad Max: Fury Road” was just okay but nothing all that great. I didn’t like Tom Hardy as Mad Max. I prefered Mel Gibson back in the role ’cause the film would have been so much better if Mel was in it. Tom as Max was kind of boring. He didn’t speak that many lines but when he did, he would talk in a deep growling voice. That’s not how Max was in the previous films with Mel.

Some people would accuse Mel Gibson of being too old for these kind of movies but no. In case you haven’t noticed, Mel Gibson is still playing in violent action movies so I’m sure he can handle it well.

The story didn’t have much of a plot and some of the villains were kind of silly. The action scenes were a blast to watch, though, don’t get me wrong. The action scenes were pretty much the only good thing about the film. The film is no “masterpiece” like many are saying, though. I did like Charlize Theron’s role in it too.

While the film got some controversy out of it… some accused the film of being too “feminist” but I didn’t think so.

I’m sure there will be better action movies coming out later this year like “Terminator: Genisys”, “Spectre”, “Mission Impossible V”, “Star Wars 7”, etc.

“Mad Max: Fury Road” was just okay. Could have been better. I’ll give it a 2 out of 5 as in “okay”.

Mel Gibson surprises Tom Hardy and fans by showing up at the “Mad Max: Fury Road” premiere!

While it’s sad that Mel Gibson is no longer involved in the “Mad Max” franchise, it’s great to see that Mel still gets their support and his blessing. Mel Gibson, the man himself makes a surprise appearance at the “Mad Max: Fury Road” premiere. George Miller the director admitted that the reason he didn’t have Mel star in the next installment ’cause he was worried that the cast and crew would hate Mel on set due to all of Mel’s past troubles. It seems that Mel wasn’t invited to the premiere, he just showed up to surprise them. Mel was all smiles and hugging everybody, looking real good. George and everybody else never expected Mel to be there so it was a surprise for sure. Mel showed up as a way to show them that he has no beef with anybody. He’s all cool with them!

I am planning to see the new “Mad Max” movie ’cause I’m a big fan of these movies.

George Miller finally explains why Mel Gibson wasn’t casted for “Mad Max: Fury Road”…

Before Mad Max 4 began production, fans of the Mad Max series begged George Miller to bring Mel Gibson back as the role of Max Rockatansky. This is what the fans wanted for a long time was for Mel to reprise this legendary role but now fans have to go through a disappointment now that they learned that Mel was replaced by Tom Hardy. George Miller who directed all of the Mad Max movies finally explains why. It wasn’t because of his 2006 arrest and anti-Semetic scandals. It’s just that George simply felt that Mel is too old.

Mel is too old, my ass!!! Come on George! Mel is STILL doing violent action movies and he seems to be doing fine doing all of his own stunts. I’m sure there is still a way to write Mel in Mad Max 4 somehow so it can make a little more sense to have an aging Max fighting off the bad guys.

I don’t know if I’ll be able to see “Mad Max: Fury Road” ’cause I can’t see a Mad Max movie without Mel ’cause I’m a huge fan of the original trilogy. Of course, “The Road Warrior” will always be the best Mad Max film. I think I’ll pass on the “Mad Max: Fury Road” ’cause they simply neglected Gibson.

Don’t get me wrong, “Fury Road” looks alright but I don’t really like Tom Hardy all that much.

I think Mel would have done fine if he still played the character. I just totally disagree with George on that one.
