I bet Obama is getting mad as hell at the success of “American Sniper”…

I can imagine the look on Obama’s face that the film, “American Sniper” is getting more success than “Selma”. Ever since Chris Kyle’s death in 2013, Obama refused to acknowledge it and he stayed silent on Chris’s heroism ever since. Instead, the Obama White House pays respects to Whitney Houston. Everybody knows that Obama himself appears to be a movie buff so I would think he would know about the film, “American Sniper” so he absolutely knows who Chris Kyle is and knows what he has done for the country. Ever since, “American Sniper’s” release, Obama have stayed silent on the film as well. Instead, he’s all over the film “Selma” as he just had a screening for the film at the White House.

If we had a Republican president, he/she would have had a screening for “American Sniper” at the White House and the Republican president would have awarded Chris a medal of honor. Chris is indeed eligible for a medal of honor… it’s just that our fuckin’ president that we have now, Obama, refuses to give him one. There’s gotta be something fishy going on if the president refuses to acknowledge Chris’s heroism and death. As usual, what does Obama have to hide?

I bet he’s angry as hell that “American Sniper” is a box office hit and that the Chris Kyle story got out there. If the president refuses to honor Chris Kyle, then the American people like us will honor Chris on our own by supporting this movie. This is our way of paying respects to a war hero while Obama sits there and does nothing.

Obama does reward other white soldiers the medal of honor dead or alive but he never gave Chris Kyle anything.

“American Sniper” is a beautiful film, though. I bet Obama himself won’t even see it. Going to support “American Sniper” in the theater is all patriotism. That’s what it’s all about really. Showing our love for the country by seeing movies like “Unbroken” and “American Sniper”.

As far as “Selma” goes, once again, I’m sure that’s a good film too but the black community needs to get over themselves over this divisive crap. The Oscars and the movie industry never really had a divisive problem but assholes like Sharpton and Obama are making it into a divisive problem. That’s part of their goal in America… they’re trying to divide this country.

I really hope the Academy makes the right choice by giving “American Sniper” the Best Picture win and Brad Cooper gets the award for Best Actor. If the Academy caves in to race baiters and if “Selma” wins Best Picture instead, I’m never gonna watch the Oscars again and will boycott them.

Why are liberals and the black community accusing the Oscars of being divisive when there are more blacks in the NBA and NFL than whites? Have any whites been nominated or won anything through the BET awards? Al Sharpton is such a loser. I’m getting really tired of that guy.

This is not what Dr. MLK Jr. would have wanted.

Back to “American Sniper”, I’m happy the Chris Kyle story is getting some recognition… FINALLY! I knew who Chris Kyle was before the movie and that book came out.

My Oscar predictions for 2014…

Well, the Oscar nominations for this year are out and as expected, “Gravity”, and “American Hustle”, scored the most nominations. I have seen both movies in the theater and while both movies are fantastic, I think, “Gravity” will win big this year.

Of course, there are a lot of snubs and it’s interesting that George Clooney got the snub for “Gravity” as I thought he was the best part of the film. The Oscars snubbing Clooney? Wow. They hardly ever do that. That’s okay though. Clooney isn’t worried about it as he already is an Oscar winner for his film, “Syriana” and I’m sure he will get nominated for acting roles again in the future. He might have a chance to get nominated for “The Monuments Men”.

I’ve noticed that “Lone Survivor” did end up making a few nominations at this years Oscars after all but only the smaller categories… it only got nominated for best Sound mixing/editing. It got the snub for everything else.

I don’t agree with Ellen Degeneres hosting the Oscars again ’cause I can’t stand that annoying woman.

Anyhow, here are my predictions for this years Oscars:

BEST PICTURE: Gravity

BEST ACTOR: Chiwetel Ejiofor “12 Years A Slave” (I’ve never seen the film yet but looks real good)

BEST ACTRESS: Sandra Bullock, “Gravity”

ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE: Barkhad Abdi “Captain Phillips” (Haven’t seen “Captain Phillips” either but want to)

ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE: Jennifer Lawrence, “American Hustle”

ANIMATED FEATURED FILM: “Frozen” (Another film I haven’t seen but want to)

BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY: Gravity

COSTUME DESIGN: American Hustle

DIRECTING: Alfonso Cuaron “Gravity”

FILM EDITING: Gravity

MUSIC ORIGINAL SCORE: Gravity

MUSIC ORIGINAL SONG: “Ordinary Love” by U2 (if they won at the Golden Globes, they’ll win at the Oscars too)

PRODUCTION DESIGN: Gravity

SOUND EDITING: Gravity

SOUND MIXING:  Gravity

VISUAL EFFECTS: Gravity

WRITING ADAPTED SCREEN PLAY: 12 Years A Slave

WRITING ORIGINAL SCREEN PLAY: Her

I hate award shows but I like the Oscars. I watch it every year.

Looking forward to the Oscars tonight…

Tonight, I’ll be watching the Oscars, and after the show, I’ll post my review. I’ll be watching the red carpet opener just to see what Sacha Baron Cohen is going to do. He’s going to appear as the Dictator for sure, but you know he’s going to do something crazy for a laugh just to get the media going. It’ll be interesting.

Everyone thinks the Best Picture winner could go to “The Descendants”, but it could go to something else. Either, “Hugo” or “War Horse” could take the win too. These three films would be the most likely choices to win “Best Picture”. I would be surprised if “The Help” actually gets it but I doubt it though. “The Help” is a great movie.

I’ll be DVR’ing tonight’s “Walking Dead” episode, while I’m watching the Oscars. I’ll watch the new “Walking Dead” episode tomorrow. I watch the Oscars yearly.

Oscar Predictions for this Sunday…

Oscar predictions for this Sunday, I haven’t seen most of the movies this year but these are just my guesses that will win:

Best Picture – “The Descendants” or “Hugo”
Actor in a Leading Role – George Clooney for “the Descendants”
Actress in a Leading Role – Michelle Williams for “My Week With Marilyn” or Rooney Mara for “Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”
Actor in a Supporting Role – Nick Nolte for “Warrior”
Actress in a Supporting Role – Octavia Spencer for “The Help”
Animated Feature Film – “Rango”
Directing: Alexander Payne for “The Descendants”
Writing (Adaptive Screenplay): “Moneyball” (because of Aaron Sorkin)
Writing (Original Screenplay): “Midnight in Paris” by Woody Allen

I remember, I once said Nick Nolte was snubbed from the Oscars, but I looked at the Nominations list again and saw him on there. I must of missed it, someone should have told me!

I hate most award shows, but the Oscars I like to watch. It’s pretty much the only award show I enjoy more than the others. Looking forward to the Oscars, Sunday night. I’ll be DVR’ing the “Walking Dead” while watching it.

Report: Okay, Sacha Baron Cohen not banned from the Oscars, but might not be allowed to wear, “The Dictator” costume…

The Academy were quick to respond to reports and they denied banning Sacha Baron Cohen. They’re just waiting to see what he’s planning to do. He’s planning to show up in character in, “The Dictator” (pictured above), but the Academy is worried that he might do something crazy and offensive.

The Hollywood Reporter reports.

Oh please, the Academy should not be taking him so seriously. The guy’s a comedian and a pretty funny one, I must say. I am looking forward to “The Dictator” ’cause it looks like a funny ass movie. I like Sacha’s films when he’s starring in the leading role. Yes, “Borat” and “Bruno” are both good movies. Sascha is obviously politically motivated ’cause all three of these films are based on politics, in some way.

I’m looking forward to seeing what Sacha is going to do this Sunday at the Oscars. The man is unpredictable. Since they might not allow him to show up as the Dictator, what’s stopping him from showing up as Bruno or Borat? Ever think about that, eh?

I’m looking forward to the Oscars this Sunday. I’ll be DVR’ing the Walking Dead while I’m watching it. I’ll  post my Oscar predictions later tonight.

Film Review: The King’s Speech

Starring: Colin Firth, Helena Bonham Carter, Geoffrey Rush

Directed by: Tom Hooper

So today I decided to go see the  movie, “The King’s Speech”. Here is my review.

Plot/Synopsis: The story revolves around Prince Albert, Duke of York (Colin Firth) who is about ready to become King George the VIth. Prince Albert must prepare for a major speech when he becomes King George VI, must do a radio speech for a large audience. However, Prince Albert has a very bad speaking problem, aka, speech impediment. Prince Albert’s wife, Elizabeth (Helena Bonham Carter) tried to get her husband to work with a speech therapist named, Lionel Logue (Geoffrey Rush). Prince Albert must improve his speaking skills to prepare for the day he becomes, King George VI.

I saw this film because of the Oscar buzz, obviously. I wanted to see why it got the  most nominations. I can see why, because the film is really good. The movie was actually entertaining and fun. It has a very huge chance of sweeping up all the awards at the Oscars. Sorry to say. Of course, I was most impressed with Colin Firth’s acting. The man was amazing. Probably the best acting I’ve seen in a long time, so I know he will win Best Actor, no matter what happens. The script was really good, the drama actually kept me at the edge of my seat, and it kept me guessing. It’s a thinking movie for sure. To make the movie not boring, they added a lot of humor through it.

I know this a short review, but as long you love a film so much, there’s not much to say about it, since it is perfect and nothing wrong with it. The film was fantastic, and worth seeing. Definitely go check this one out.

Score for “The King’s Speech” = **** (4 stars as in “excellent”)
