My 86th Academy Awards Predictions!

oscars

Hello all, once again, it’s that time of year when the Oscars are only a week away and many film fanatics make their predictions about who will win. And I’m no exception, although I haven’t been all that successful. My record so far is 9 correct (out of like 30), and 30% ain’t bad, right?

 So below you’ll find the list of the nominees as well as my predicted winners. The nominees that I think SHOULD win will be in red, the nominees that I think WILL win will be in blue, and if they’re the same, they’ll be both RED AND BLUE.

One last thing, I always leave the “Top 6” categories (Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, and Best Animated Feature) for the end. Continue reading “My 86th Academy Awards Predictions!”

My Thoughts: THE CROODS (2013)

I really wasn’t looking forward to any of Dreamworks Animation’s films that were coming out this year. “The Croods” seemed stupid and boring. “Turbo” seemed stupid and boring. And “Mr. Peabody & Sherman” (which was pushed back to a 2014 release) seemed…well….I had no interest in it, since I wasn’t familiar with the original show that it was based on. So all in all, I wasn’t looking forward to watching any of these.

But when you’re “The Animation Commendation”, it’s a sin not to watch these movies and even more a sin not to review them. With that said, I ended up watching “The Croods” when it came out on DVD. What’d I think? It was boring and I didn’t like it.

"Oh, that's it? Right, we can go now!"

Ok, I’ll be more detailed about it. Continue reading “My Thoughts: THE CROODS (2013)”

“The Croods” Opens With a Crude Amount of $44 Million!

Dreamworks Animation’s first animated film of the year seems to be a hit with audiences after opening with a weekend gross of $44 million! Have you seen this movie? What did you think about it? Do you want to see this movie? Let me know in the comments!

I, for one, was not excited about this animated film, nor am I excited about Dreamworks Animation’s next animated film that’s planned for release this year!

A stupid premise with a stupid tagline, in my opinion!

But everybody’s saying to give this movie a chance! I’ll most likely watch this when it comes out on DVD!
