MOST PLEASANT SURPRISE: Kingsman

While I'm a huge fan of Kick-Ass, my initial excitement for Kingsman wasn't that high. I thought it looked like just another generic action movie. I never even anticipated it to be the non-stop thrill ride it truly was, filled to the brim with great characters and hilarious satire. Absolutely love this film.

BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT: Jupiter Ascending

The Wackowski siblings (sisters? Brosters?) were coming off making one of my all-time favorite films, Cloud Atlas, and creating an exciting looking original sci-fi movie starring yours truly, Mila Kunis, and Sean Bean. The trailers looked great and the plot intrigued me, so I didn't let any of the negative rumors surrounding its production bother me. Even when the abysmal reviews came in, I still went in optimistic. When I came out of the film, I was rather shocked. I tried to focus on the positives, but in the end, I had to face the facts: Jupiter Ascending isn't a good film. I didn't hate it, but damn, I was expecting so much more.

While I may have rated films like Terminator: Genisys lower, I simply didn't have the same expectations I had for this one. A huge disappointment from some of my favorite directors in possibly my favorite genre.

BEST SCENE: Luke's reveal (Star Wars: The Force Awakens)

In any other year, something like Keanu's "free pizza" rant would win this hands down. But this year, a new Star Wars movie came out. The feeling I got when I saw Luke turn around in TFA reminded me why I love movies, and I can't truly describe it any better than that. It was just a magical moment.
5/6.

Yeah, when I think of masterful scenes, I think of the one where the old man staring off a cliff for hours only to turn around for a random girl.  Masterful.
goodbye!

Tomorrow I will announce Best Ensemble, Best Editing, and Best Cinematography. I might do a few more, as I've made up my mind on almost all of these now.

BEST ENSEMBLE: The Hateful Eight

It may not have been one of my favorites this year, but damn, what a cast. Great performances all around.

BEST EDITING: The Big Short

The Bit Short's frantic and creative way of editing may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I absolutely loved it.

BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY: The Revenant

It was a close call between this and Macbeth, but that opening raid sequence pushed this over the edge. Lubezki is a god.

Gonna announce a few more technical ones because I'm basically decided on these....

BEST VISUAL EFFECTS: Star Wars: The Force Awakens

The blend of practical and CGI effects is astounding here, especially considering the scale of the production taking place. Everything done in TFA feels real and rooted in what makes Star Wars so great: the incredible characters and world building. The beautiful visuals of TFA are large part of what makes me love the film so much.

BEST COSTUME DESIGN: Mad Max: Fury Road

While Mad Max might not have the same elegant costume design of films like Cinderella or Crimson Peak, the incredible creativity on display in the film created some the coolest and most memorable costumes I've seen in years.

BEST PRODUCTION DESIGN: Mad Max: Fury Road

It was a bit of a coin toss between this and TFA, but the fact that all those cars and costumes were real and added so much to the gritty atmosphere of the film made Mad Max impossible to ignore.

BEST ORIGINAL SCORE: Star Wars: The Force Awakens

This one was a close call, but as was the case with Best Scene, nostalgia wins yet again. John Williams is the fucking man.

BEST ADAPTED SCREENPLAY: The Big Short

"And now, here's Margot Robbie in a bubble bath to explain sub-prime mortgages..."

BEST ORIGINAL SCREENPLAY: Ex Machina

With Ex Machina, Alex Garland created one of the most tense and thought-provoking films I've seen in years. He nails all the subtleties and nuances of each character, and makes their every action matter and tell something of who they are. His writing is a huge reason why I love this film so much.

Maybe not dumb but rather obnoxious.  It assumes the audience is uninterested in economics so hey, put a beautiful lady in a bathtub!  Maybe people will pay attention to what she says.

Think about it, if that had been Julianne Moore sitting in a desk with full on clothing, would that scene be top spot?  It's just there as a means to keep **** kids listening to what's being said.

I don't see what's wrong with it. Yeah, some people who are watching might not be into the whole economics aspect, so... Well... They have to get them to pay attention somehow.

I don't agree with this at all. I think the point was that famous, attractive people are always used to explain things (like that Windows 98 instructional video featuring Jennifer Aniston and Matthew Perry). By going to the extreme of Margot Robbie in a bubble bath, it made fun of that fact, acknowledged that the subject at hand could make ordinary people's eyes glaze over, and still gave us important information, all at the same time. I think it deserves more credit than you gave it... the movie is clearly self-aware enough that it wouldn't do something like that unironically.

Perhaps if they had only broken the 4th wall to have a random celebrity explain something that the film is too lazy to explain itself just once I could have forgiven it, but did they really need to have that gag multiple times?  Like Cutler said, it just felt obnoxious.  Even just having one of the main characters explain whatever they felt that they needed to explain would have been less annoying.

There's always a way to get your point across without resorting to cheap nonsensical tricks like that.

Oh no, you mistake my intentions.  I simply play devil's advocate.  I have no clue about that scene.  I haven't seen the film.  I just like arguing for the sake of arguing.

Yet you managed to write a 5 paragraph review on it.

You're retarded.  That was Paasche's review.

BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS: Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina)

Alicia Vikander scared me here. She put so much subtle intensity into her performance, and as the film professed, she just got better and better. Her chemistry with co-stars Oscar Isaac and Domhnall Gleeson was also excellent.

BEST SUPPORTING ACTOR: Oscar Isaac (Ex Machina)

This may have been the toughest race of all, but I mean, c'mon:


BEST ACTRESS: Brie Larson (Room)

The most emotional and moving performance of the year. Even made me tear up a few times.

BEST ACTOR: Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant)

That's right, bitches. I loved Leo in The Revenant. Was it his best performance? Probably not. But this year, I think he really deserved it. Carrying a film like this with minimal dialogue is no easy task, but he helped make The Revenant an exciting and enthralling piece of cinema. I'm glad he finally got his Oscar.
