This movie manages to keep you interested regardless of whether or not the facts in it are true. Jake Gyllenhaal was the played the most notable role in the film but I also enjoyed Mark Ruffalo as well.

I swear if this movie is not nominated for Best Picture in the Oscars, I am going to kill myself.
Watching Birdman is like riding a greatI swear if this movie is not nominated for Best Picture in the Oscars, I am going to kill myself.
Watching Birdman is like riding a great two hour long roller coaster. It goes up when an intense scene goes on and it goes down when everything seems fine and then it goes up again when it’s intense and so on.
Birdman feels like it’s a semi-autobiography movie for Michael Keaton. I did not see his other movies including his run as Batman but his performance in this movie alone is enough for me to agree that he is one of the most underrated actors in Hollywood. I do hope this movie gives him more roles to do in the future now he received tons of critical acclaim on his performance.
I like how Michael Keaton did not overshadow the other cast in the movie because the cast performance is brilliant. It seemed like they’re real people in this movie. My favorite performers in this movie besides Michael Keaton were Edward Norton and Emma Stone. They both had their great moments in this movie.
The movie’s plot relies on character development and they did a good job doing that. The movie’s plot also relies on social commentary about Hollywood which they were on point about it especially about “washed up” actors trying to be relevant again as well as the “snobby critics” which was my favorite scene in the entire movie.
I don’t usually comment on musical scores in this movie but I cannot ignore the score in this movie because it was really good. The use of the drums in this movie as a score is perfectly used considering the intense tone of the movie.
The direction from Alejandro González Iñárritu in this movie is amazing. Not to forget that this movie excel the “shot in one take” style of filming very well. It feels like they really shot the movie in one take thanks to clever editing skills.
Birdman could be an Oscar winner next year thanks to its brilliant cast performance especially from Michael Keaton, Edward Norton and Emma Stone as well as great character development, on-point social commentary about Hollywood, really good musical score, amazing direction from Alejandro González Iñárritu and its well-done “shot in one take” filming style.
Birdman is easily not only one of my favorite movies of 2014 but as well as one of my favorite movies of all-time.… Full Review »
This is one of the BEST animated films I have ever seen. The plot premise is great, and is executed nearly perfectly. When Homer saves a pigThis is one of the BEST animated films I have ever seen. The plot premise is great, and is executed nearly perfectly. When Homer saves a pig from death, Marge urges him to get rid of it, because she made out the words "curled tail" from Abe's church rant. Meanwhile, Lisa gets everyone to clean up Springfield Lake, but Homer dumps his "Pig Crap" silo in the lake. As a result, the EPA seals everyone in a big dome, and plots to blow up Springfield and everyone living in it. This is filled with an extreme influx of hilarious moments, including Homer trying to eat an electrified fish, the "Rock and a Hard Place" joke, Bart shooting Homer's hot-dog out of his hand with a slingshot, etc. The cast is extremely on point; they give the characters a sense of life no other show can match. Characterisation is also great. Homer is in his dumb, but lovable oaf form, Bart is the charismatic troublemaker we expect him to be (the show kind of forgot this in the later seasons), Lisa is her tree-hugger self (but she doesn't force it), Marge shows more emotion than she does on the show, and Maggie is cute and dangerous (keep the smashed bottle scene in mind). There are also plenty of emotional scenes as well. These include Lisa gushing about her new found love for an Irish boy named Colin, Bart's constant struggle to see Homer as a real father, and Marge's saddening message to Homer about their leaving Alaska for Springfield (along with the perfectly fitting "Close To You" song playing over their wedding video). Overall, this film has excellent characterisation and a flawless plot with the perfect ending (Homer and Marge riding off into the sunset), which makes this the perfect film to fit one of the world's best animated shows. 10/10.… Full Review »
I never seen the original, but I'll have to admit the film isn't bad. The songs are enjoyable (especially the Hard knock life one).

So I recommend if anyone want to see a movie this week, try Annie.… Full Review »
