(tw high scores):
Whiplash- 9/10
daaaamn that movie was phenomenal. i highly recommend that everyone put aside an hour and a half to watch and enjoy this movie. probably one the best i've seen in a while. it is intense and poses some really cool questions at the end that i havent really seen from other movies.

Birdman- 8/10
also great and recommended. great acting and really unique

The East -- 8/10. It's like an anti-corporation/environmentalist's wet dream come true. I'm not really either of those things, but I thought the movie was really cool regardless. All of the "jams" (anti corporation mischief, in short) are badass, and I was genuinely curious to see how it was going to end.

Gone Girl - 9/10. Just watch it. Funny as hell in a strange way.

I liked this a lot as well. Haven't seen much talk about it though. If you liked the main girl in that (Britt Marling), check out 'Another Earth'. She stars and co-wrote it (same deal as in The East).

If I had a nickel for everytime someone said something like that online, well I'd have a lot of nickels. Who are these people throwing out such distasteful spite towards our war movies? Probably people sitting behind a keyboard like 50% of us, just left out in the world and can't grasp the idea that other people have far more eventful, interesting, painful, and emotional lives than them.

I really look forward to seeing it though. Bradley Cooper looks like he's going to nail this role.

Or at least feel nothing at all about it.

I haven't seen American Sniper yet (I plan on it, the roommate just torrented it) but its gonna be tough to enjoy a movie that glorifies such a soldier as an American hero/protector of the country

American Sniper was insanely good in my opinion. Definitely Bradley Coopers best role. He needs to start doing pieces like this more often.

I want to watch all of the other nominees before I watch the Academy Awards. Anyone know where I can watch them? Any good sites/recommendations?
