Meat and Potatoes goes to the Oscars this week with my honest opinions on who should win in the all-important categories and some of the non-important categories too.
*Best Actor* Hands down, Joaquin Phoenix in “Joker” no one comes close to his performance.
*Best Actress* Lupita Nyong’o in “Us”. It is a travesty and a down right shame that she wasn’t even nominated for her incredible duel role in that awesome film.
*Best Director* Sam Mendes for “1917”. What he did in this film, was amazing and will be studied for years to come.
*Best Picture* With a slight edge over “1917”, mostly because of the brilliant acting, I will give it to “Joker”.
*Best Epic Culmination Movie* “Avengers: Endgame” of course.
*Best Unexpectedly Great Original Action Movie* “Alita: Battle Angel”
*Best Original Horror Film* “Us” It was crazy good.
*Best Knife Fight* “John Wick: Parabellum” and a lot of great fights in this movie too.
*Best Documentary* “They Shall Not Grow Old”
*Best Surprise Sequel* “Dr. Sleep” Very different but true to the original.
*Worst Sequel Period* A tie “Lego Movie 2” and “Terminator: Dark Fate”
*Best Little Perfect Movie* “Blinded by the Light”. I loved that film.
*Worst Ending* “Brightburn” by far. Does “Game of Thrones” Count? lol
*Worst Remakes* “Dumbo” with “Lion King” very close behind.
*Best Geek Moment* Captain America picks up Thor’s hammer.
*Worst Geek Moment* The Emperor being operated by a crane.
*Cheesiest Movie but Still Fun* “Hobbs and Shaw”.
I better stop before I come up with more ridiculous categories.
I just wanted to take this opportunity to Thank all of you so much for letting me share my opinions on the wonderful world of the movies with you all year. Meat and Potatoes has been a big success with 5280 Geek and that’s totally because of your continued interest. So, Smurf willing, I look forward to another year of seeing a lot of movies and trying not to spoil them for you.
Thanks again, and….
Stay Geeky my Movie friends.
