2016 Oscar Predictions – An Almost Sweep For “The Revenant” and Leo’s Own Statuette!

Oscar Predictions 2016 paddylastincOkay, so I may be part of the minority who thinks that The Revenant will make an almost sweep of its 12 Oscar nominations including Best Picture, Best Director and the ever-elusive Best Actor for Leonardo DiCaprio. A few hours from now, the winners of the 88th Academy Awards will be revealed at the Dolby Theater in California but before that, let me just present my predictions this year… and see if we’ve the same winners.

Best Picture: The Revenant LOCKED.

Best Director: Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu for The Revenant – I am not doubting a consecutive win for Inarritu although George Miller is not that much behind from him, I still think at the end of the night The Revenant director will end up the victor.

Best Actor: Leonardo DiCaprio for The Revenant – I think there’s no need to even point out why Leo deserves to win this one.  LOCKED.

Best Actress: Brie Larson for Room – Just like Leonardo DiCaprio, it is almost impossible to upset Larson’s impending Oscar win and the only one who had the .001 percentage to do that is Saoirse Ronan which at this point is very unlikely to happen. LOCKED.

Best Supporting Actor: Mark Rylance for Bridge of Spies – I know, I’d love for Sylvester Stallone to win this category but I thought Mark Rylance was heaps and bounds better than him. Uhm, Just saying.

Best Supporting Actress: Kate Winslet for Steve Jobs – Yes, Alicia Vikander was totes amazing in The Danish girl but I’ve a feeling that the voters will be in favor of Winslet portraying Joanna Hoffman in the biopic Steve Jobs and is it weird that I’m feeling this “Leo effect” favoring her???!!!!

Best Foreign Language Film: Son of Saul – It has a basic formula. Nuff said. LOCKED.

Best Animated Feature: Inside Out – LOCKED.

Best Documentary Feature: Amy – LOCKED.

Best Original Screenplay: Spotlight

Best Adapted Screenplay: The Martian

Best Cinematography: The Revenant

Best Costume Design: Mad Max: Fury Road LOCKED. As much as I loved Cinderella’s costumes!

Best Original Song: Writing’s on The Wall – OST Spectre (I just loved the song the best amongst the nominees and thought the most predicted winner, Til It Happens to You does not deserved the nomination in the first place)

Best Production Design: The Revenant LOCKED.

Best Film Editing: Mad Max: Fury Road

Best Sound Editing: The Revenant

Best Visual Effects: The Revenant

Best Original Score: The Hateful Eight

Best Hairstyle and Make-Up: The Revenant  LOCKED.

Review: Men In Black 3 in 3D

via wikipedia

“Men in Black 3” comes 15 years after its original installment and 10 years after its sequel where nobody ever expected to get a follow up after. I, for one did not. Nevertheless, it was a pleasant reminder that Will Smith is still very much alive to do movies.

This third film based on Lowell Cunningham’s comic series had Agent J (Will Smith) travels back to 1969 where he met the younger Agent K (played this time by Josh Brolin.) His mission is to stop the alien criminal Boris from assassinating the young Agent K that would change the course of history.

I am not a fan of the franchise but I remember enjoying the first two films somehow. I just loved the dynamics between Smith and Jones in the previous installments. This time though, Smith does not have a lot of sequences with Jones, which is a shame because they really have a great chemistry. Brolin isn’t a bad replacement though; he’s pretty quick and spot-on as the younger Agent K.

Another problem I have was the establishment of Agent O’s (Emma Thompson) character (also played by Alice Eve.) The scenes were not enough to establish K’s softer side for “them.”

Jemaine Clement who played Boris the animal was a-okay. He was “fierce” enough I guess but does little to be a threatening villain.

This film also goes a little backward in terms of special effects that it almost seemed unreal. I don’t know maybe it’s just me or it’s the effect of 3-D but it felt distant somehow. The film isn’t bad at all but it’s missing the spark of the previous installments that may have made the film a bit lackluster in providing a spectacular comeback sequel.

Rating: 7 / 10

Director: Barry Sonnenfeld

Starring: WillSmith, Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin, Jemaine Clement, Emma Thompson, Michael Stuhlbarg, Mike Colter, Nicole Scherzinger, Alice Eve, Will Arnett, David Rasche, Keone Young, Bill Hader, Lady Gaga, Lenny Venito

In Focus: Alexander McQueen

It’s been exactly 10 months since Alexander McQueen’s body was found hanged at his home in London. A sad, sad event that left the whole fashion and entertainment industry mourning for this great loss.  Lee Alexander McQueen, without question was a genius that revolutionized fashion in such a daring and ferocious manner. Clearly, with his technically and aesthetically creative works; McQueen will eternally be remembered!
