My Oscars 2023 reactions

Many films were nominated for various awards this year — some won, certain ones were snubbed, and others were deservedly recognized.

If I picked the winners: Oscars 2023

Instead of only talking about the possibly fortunate and unfortunate predictions of the ceremony, I decided to talk about my votes.

‘Speak No Evil’ is so AAAAAAAAAAAAAH

"Speak No Evil" is one of the best movies I’ve seen this year. But if I recommend it, nobody will ever talk to me again.

‘Three Colours: Blue’: A Great Beginning

This is probably one of the most impactful films I have ever watched, and one that everyone else should watch as well.

‘Men’: A Very Hollow Comedy

There is nothing really to say about this movie. It has a short runtime, but it seems to go on forever.

Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra brings the magic back to ‘Harry Potter’

The direction of the score adds a different layer to the movie and can give viewers an entirely different interpretation of the original message.

‘Smile’: or, a eulogy for Mustache

Creepy smiles, good scares, dead cat. Four out of five stars.

‘The Needle’: in no particular order

The more I think about 'The Needle,' the more I seem to enjoy it.

‘Do Revenge’: an homage to the enraged teenage girl

Both female leads of "Do Revenge" were rage-filled, unhinged young women. And I loved them for that. Finally, I saw myself on screen.

‘Marcel The Shell With Shoes On’: no hollow film here

"Marcel the Shell" has such a whimsy that is reminiscent of both Ghibli and Pixar’s greatest hits.
