The Screen Guilders Award Picks

The Wolf of Wall Street, I saw it but I’m sorry it just was not this over the top story of this shark on Wall Street, that wowed me. Wall Street – Money Never Sleeps, Wall Street with Michael Douglas, I enjoyed more. Maybe I’m just over Wall Street films. I can be wrong, what do you think L.A.

Dallas Buyers Club 0 This movie is so well done. And Mathew McConaughey is freaking awesome in this role, maybe he is just a great actor because he “murders” this role. I mean the whole concept of the movie has you thinking on so many levels. The story is dark but the film is great.

12 Years of Slave – I think I commented on this film before. Directed by Steve McQueen. With Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael K. Williams. The realisms in this movie were outstanding but again it’s so dark it physically hurt to watch. So in that evoke so much emotion. Good film

“Lee Daniels…The Butler” was fricking awesome, the acting, the story line, everything. I don’t know what “the judges or whatever” or looking for. It was ridiculous not to recognize this cast.

August Osage County – There is a reason Meryl Streep is nominated for so many awards. She is freaking AWESOME. And Julia Roberts…WOW!

“Captain Phillips, – The dynamics of this movie are awesome. So, good, Tom Hanks is awesome of course. I mean really this dude has the acting thing down. Barkhad Abdi this guy was so good in this role, I don’t know if they went out and found him or what, but he was great, and Faysal Ahmed, besides being fine as hell, couldn’t have played any dam crazier. Anyways you want to see this one L.A.

American Hustle, Gravity” and I’ll update. I’m sorry L.A. I don’t think I’m going to be able to sit through Philomena

12 Years a Slave

A story about a free black man during the “Antebellum” period in the United States, meaning before the civil war who was kidnapped into slavery. I’m one of those boomers that tell the Xrs and Millenniums that in order for us to successfully navigate the society we live in, you need to understand the struggle of your people. People that were undoubtedly survivors. And then I saw this movie, 12 Years a Slave. I groaned and cringed the whole time, and I could hear other people in the audience doing the same. We were wondering (and yes I’m going to speak for everyone) how any person calling themselves civilized could be so very, very, very cruel. It was graphic, and I know that still did not depict the true horrid tale of the Maafa. How the ancestors survived, “GOD”, that’s the only possible answer. I can’t imagine having to be afraid if not terrified of every second, of every minute, of every hour of every day. But, they persevered, survived, and we are strong. Should you see it…I know a lot of young people don’t like to watch or revisit that period. I don’t know, it was extremely hard to watch the suffering, the hopelessness, even if it was only a movie. But these stories need to be told. Let me know…Say Something L.A.
