The Oscars 2017

And...we are about to witness yet another round of Oscar statues to be given out to outstanding performances and skills in movie making, and like any other year I jot down my opinions and expectations from this event and the movies that make them. Unfortunately, I have until now, viewed just one among those top contenders in best film category, and it might be an easy guess for those who know me. I love Amy Adams, and I like watching the spectacles on big screen. 'Arrival' was a different kind of spectacle though.

I will put in my best to get through most of the deserving titles this year, and I did get a chance to see 'The Edge of Seventeen'. Though not nominated, it had rave reviews.

My next few viewing picks from the contenders list will most likely be the magical 'La La land', an Indian story 'Lion', Viola Davis' 'Fences' and the family drama 'Manchester by the Sea'. 'La La Land' has already climbed to the top of most lists by now, winning the Golden globe and many other awards. It is touted to be the best this year. Though a musical is not always my choice, it has Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling; so, cant refuse. I am also intrigued by 'Manchester by the Sea' and the so said performances. If it can bring forth someone like Casey Affleck who never ever crossed my mind as an Oscar nominee, then there is something really up on offer. I imagine I would enjoy a movie like 'Hidden Figures' and it would be entertaining. The two movies that I am not upto watching is 'Moonlight' and 'Hell and High Water'. 'Moonlight seems too dark a story somehow, that will be outside my enjoyment, and 'Hell' never seemed like a movie of my taste. Therefore, I might miss those two, but if I really have to I might give 'Moonlight' a chance.
