Re: General Movie Discussion Part II
Django Unchained was very good. The whole cast did an amazing job. Waltz,Foxx, and maybe even Dicaprio will get Oscar nominations.
That being said, I haven't seen a movie that was head and shoulders above the rest for best picture or director. Movies like Moonrise Kingdom,Perks of Being a Wallflower, and Silver Linnings Playbook were great because they preyed on your emotions and were also very good in the process. While other films like The Master and Lincoln had great performances but the movie was long and boring at times and I have no interest in seeing them again. Django was basically another Tarantino film which is not a bad thing considering I love all of his films, but it wasn't anything out of the ordinary for him. Argo left me the most satisfied since I came in thinking it would be a decent film, but found myself on the edge of my seat for over half the film.
I haven't seen Zero Dark Thirty, Les Miserable or The Sessions yet which have a lot of buzz around them. I am going to try and see them in the coming weeks.
