“Spotlight” was surprisingly a very good film, watched it on Netflix last night…

I remember last year when the Oscars was around, “Spotlight” won Best Picture last year. Another movie that stars Michael Keaton. I remember being disappointed that “Spotlight” won Best Picture over “The Revenant” movie. After finally seeing the movie “Spotlight” last night on Netflix, I’m now realizing that the Oscars giving “Spotlight” the Best Picture win was the right choice after all. “Spotlight” really was an excellent film. I loved it actually, I might even watch it again later tonight. After you get done watching the movie the first time and you want to give it a second viewing, that’s when you know the film is that damn good.

“Spotlight” is a great story based on a real life thing. The film has a great cast, the writing is surprisingly good and best of all, Michael Keaton kills it with his acting like usual. The cast of this movie is pretty killer: Liev Schreiber, Mark Ruffalo, Stanley Tucci, Billy Crudup, etc.

If you have Netflix, this film is worth a look. I’m definitely gonna get my own copy of the film on BluRay, I think. Turned out to be a great film after all.

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

http://www.amazon.com/Birdman-Michael-Keaton/dp/B00TPJE3ZK

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.

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.

“Beetlejuice” sequel is on the way from Warner Bros. and Tim Burton???

Tim Burton and Michael Keaton have both been planning a “Beetlejuice 2” in the media for many years, and it looks like the film might actually happen soon. Reports are saying that Mr. Burton is in negotiations with Warner Bros. to direct the follow-up to “Beetlejuice” that was released in 1988 (also starring Winona Ryder, Alec Baldwin and Geena Davis). They already have a script written by Seth Grahame-Smith for the sequel.

The plot of the sequel is unknown at this time but I hope it’s a “sequel” and not another lame re-boot. I hope the next film will leave off from the 1988 film.

It still might be a few more years until this movie actually happens ’cause Mr. Burton still has a few other projects in the works so “Beetlejuice 2” maybe a while. I’m glad this is happening ’cause I’m a huge fan of “Beetlejuice” myself. Michael just kills it with that role! I’m sure he’ll still kill it when he comes back to it! Michael maybe 62 but I’m sure he can still play the character very well. It’s gonna be interesting to see how they’re gonna pull off the sequel, though. Lets just hope they don’t do another version of the Banana Boat Song.

Also watch the older interviews in the videos below where Michael and Tim briefly discussed interest of revisiting the Beetlejuice character. They seem pretty game for it!

Report: Author, Seth Grahame-Smith penning script for new, “Beetlejuice”, movie? Also, Michael Keaton and Tim Burton might come back as well…

The author of, “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”, and ,”Pride and Prejudice and Zombies”, wants to write the script for a new “Beetlejuice” movie, but wouldn’t say if it will be sequel of the first movie or a re-boot.

Tim Burton says he is game for directing “Beetlejuice” again, and best of all, Michael Keaton wants to return to the character.

More on the story, here.

I’m all for a sequel to, “Beetlejuice”. I’ve always wondered why the film was left with only one movie, when I know you can tell more stories with this character. A sequel should have been made years ago.

I’m sure Michael is going to get accused by many that he will be too old to play Beetlejuice, but the character wore a lot of makeup, so you won’t notice his aging anyway. I’m pretty sure he can still do the Beetlejuice voice, very well. The 1988, “Beetlejuice” film, was awesome.

The question is, will Winona Ryder and Alec Baldwin come back? A cameo would be okay for them, but leading roles no.

Report: Stallone bashes Tim Burton/Michael Keaton “Batman” movie, claims the film destroyed the 80’s action hero era…

A lot of people love Tim Burton’s and Michael Keaton’s collaboration of “Batman”, but Stallone has some harsh words to say about the film, he is definitely no fan of the first “Batman” movie. Why? Because he thinks the film is responsible for big muscle guys in actions movies fading away for future films. The action movies in the 90’s did stay away from muscle guys. Muscle guys in action movies were huge in the 80’s but it began to die out in the early 90’s.

Read what Stallone have to say about it here:

Sorry to say, but I actually agree with Sly. I’m not agreeing with him just because I’m a huge fan, I’m agreeing with him, ’cause I’m being real. I’m no fan of the first “Batman” flick with Burton/Keaton either.

Thank god, we have Christopher Nolan to save the Batman franchise! He knows how to do Batman right, Tim Burton and Joel Schumacher can’t! Sorry!

Report: Michael Keaton still game to reprise his Beetlejuice role!!!

Just not too long ago, Geena Davis expressed interest that she wants to do another “Beetlejuice” film. Well, Michael Keaton himself heard the news. The great news is, that Michael Keaton is still interested in reprising his iconic character, Beetlejuice. He said he would do it in a heartbeat if Tim Burton does another one.

What are you waiting for Mr. Burton? Get right to work on it! Yeah, a “Beetlejuice” sequel would rule!

Report: “Beetlejuice” sequel in the works soon? Geena Davis kind of hints at it…

Rumours of a “Beetlejuice” sequel is just starting to hit the web. Geena Davis, who stars in “Beetlejuice” along with Michael Keaton, Alec Baldwin and Winona Ryder says she’s definitely down for starring in it if the sequel is greenlighted. Michael Keaton himself says he’s definitely game for starring in the sequel. Geena, plans to get in touch with Tim Burton to see if she can try and talk him into wanting to do the sequel to this movie.

I too am a huge fan of “Beetlejuice” film. I think it’s Keaton’s best role over Batman, in my opinion. It would be awesome if Keaton would reprise the role again. Michael Keaton needs to return to the mainstream of movies, because he hasn’t done a huge mainstream flick since ’98’s “Jack Frost”. Everything else he did after that were flops.

People would think Michael Keaton would be too old to be playing “Beetlejuice” again, but with today’s technology of Hollywood make-up, think how much better the Beetlejuice character would look like now than back in the 90’s. Plus it would be awesome if the original cast came back, including Alec Baldwin, Winona Ryder, and Jeffrey Jones. Used to watch “Beetlejuice” obsessively when I was a kid. Such an awesome movie.
