For that reason, we have finally sealed the book on 2010. Now, as we change into the beginning of the year, this is when most people reveal back on the season before. Inside the movie world, this is also when critics and movie lovers take the time to review the earlier year. Not to talk about, this is awards season. With the Critics’ review film Awards in simply a little while and the Oscars lower than two months ago, suffice to talk about the red carpet is officially out.
Today, Items throw myself into that all ring as we bring you Passive Club’s 2010 Movie Awards. Up front, though, I would like to look ahead and say, I’ll do this different than those big award shows. For one, you will see some of the typical categories, but likewise there will be some off-beat ones. Also, call me crazy, but I believe the largest factor in judging a movie is its entertainment value. Granted all of the other little areas of making a movie help to make a show better, however I actually believe entertainment succeeds a movie’s technical prowess in order to define whether it is good or not. So, you will not be seeing me imparting these “artsy” movies just because of their “cinematic achievement” (whatever the heck that is). Instead, Items be judging on good ole entertainment value (with acting, story, etc. participating in factors).
Therefore, without further ado, here are the winners of the first twelve-monthly Couch Potato Team Movie Awards.
Best Film: Inception
For me this was really Inception and Black Swan. I’ve seriously spent days mulling it over in my brain which would be my movie of the yr. Nevertheless , in the end, Inception wins out. Inceptionwas also perfect in a sense. With intelligent writing, good acting, fun action, great cinematography and so on and so on, the movie turned away to be awesome style with great substance. Nolan proved once more here why he is one of (if not THE) most sought after filmmakers today. A narrative genius. Following watching this movie, it made me realize what a god-send Nolan is to Hollywood really. Everyone in Hollywood should be taking notes. This really is how a successful movie must be done. Let’s not kid yourself, blockbuster action movies will still be the bakery and butter of Showmanship for some time to come. While this is alright, the challenge usually is based on that they’re so shallow and saying and just “eh”. They often just rely on cool action sequences and wonderful looking special effects. Not really Inception, though. This movie provides all that, but then actually brings element to that style offering us an engaging and mind-bending/intelligent storyline to go with it. This perfect blend makes Inception my movie of the entire year.
Top Actor: James Franco – 127 Hours
I’ve said it before and I am going to say it again: you want to test the merit of an actor or actress? Throw him in a movie in which this individual is pretty much the only one ever onscreen and he needs to bring the complete movie himself. In which the whole weight of the complete movie rests most assuredly on his neck. Will he shine? Is going to he crumble? This is the test. Others have proven themselves just as (Will Smith, Tom Hanks). And truly I believe this (and the “retard role”) is one of the biggest ways to try an actor and see if he’s one of the greats. So, enter Wayne Franco and 127 Several hours. Playing a mountain climber that gets trapped within boulder and is all alone, Franco is still left to carry a whole film on his own. Really does he succeed? Damn right he does. With traveling colors in which. Keeping it interesting, conveying a range of thoughts throughout the film and sucking you in all on his own, Franco evidently shows he had the strength to tackle such a daunting task and become the best. For that reason, he’s my acting professional of the year.
