exactly

which is why I didn't care for jake's character at all and didn't think the movie was great

Maybe the problem was that you expected something really outside the box, but most of the reason I loved it was the insane amount of fun in it. I just haven't seen a movie this fun in a long time.

Saw Kingsman today, brilliant film with lots of quirky British humour.

Ah ok. I thought you were saying you liked it a lot less than that.

I want to know all of your opinions on Boyhood. I thought that movie was overrated to all hell.

Best movie of the year, the best movie since The Lives of Others, and one of the few movies in the last 20 years that you could toss into the conversation for best movies of all time.

That appears to be the popular opinion, but I can't see that. Nothing in the movie happens for any reason; it just sort of [i]happens[i] and we're just supposed to accept it. I expected a big work in terms of the life of a boy, but the kid had acting skills that made cardboard jealous and development that horror movie characters envied. It relied too much on the "it was filmed for ten years!" gimmick. It was waaay too long. Even if you can manage to defend the movie as a whole, you cannot save that awful ending. After 3 hours of waiting for some interesting cap-off that could SOMEHOW redeem this movie... oh that ending...

Probably a cheaper budget productions (it was straight to video) but it was decent. It aired between 2 am and 4 am so it'd better than anything else at that hour (I have like 5 channels)

Despite Boyhood being one of my all time favorite movies, I'm actually glad that Birdman got all the awards and credit at the Oscars. It really deserved it, and I think Boyhood is doing something very different from other films, and should definitely be seen that way. It's particularly rewarding for people to see it who grew up during the same time as the kid in the movie, who'd be around ages 18-21 right now.

I'm just slightly younger than the kid in Boyhood but I haven't seen it yet so I'll see how I feel about it.
Birdman is a one of a kind film.

Boyhood really is awful. I did watch it and it relies SO much on being "an experience" and about how it was filmed for so long. It doesn't break new ground. The kids, especially Mason, are awful characters with actors (once again, ESPECIALLY Mason) that give either mediocre or just plain awful performances. As soon as I saw it, I knew people would easily fall in love with the concept of it all and the "art" of it all, but when you peel that all away you're left with a very sub-par product.

Birdman was such a strong film... then it ended on the worst note possible. It really was a let down finale. What the hell even happened?

I think we were chatting about both, tbh.
So i can safely say Birdman is a fantastic movie. It really changed my view of theater, art, life and panties.

It's interesting how the Oscars didn't have any hard hitters to work with, it felt like the Sundance film festival with all these indie movies like Birdman and Boyhood up for all the awards, which is nice for a change. Hopefully the next few years will have some like No Country for Old Men, The Departed, There Will Be Blood etc. though.
