3rd topic - both groups - The Oscars or Films in general

Post by Admin on Wed Mar 09, 2016 12:28 pm

So what did you think about the Oscars awarded, or the speeches given, or the host continually complaining about the lack of Black nominees, or the Oscars entertainment or fashion? If you thought Oscar was a Brazilian footballer maybe you can talk about the last movie you saw or your favourite or movies you don't like etc.....

Hi everybody,

I’m not going to talk about Oscars today, because liking a film is subjective, as well as an actor’s performance, so I don’t think this ceremony is important.

That’s why I’m going to talk about a film I like: I chose “Central do Brasil”, because this film is Brazilian, and I wanted you to discover (if you want) something different than just American and French films.

It’s the story of an old woman, who writes letters for people that are illiterate in Rio de Janeiro. One day, she witnesses the death of a mother in a car crash. After trying to sell the child to organ traffickers (she is a very nice woman…), she decides to travel through Brazil in order to give back the child to his father. The film is about all the adventures they go through during their trip.

This film is not very funny, but it is an awesome film, very famous in Brazil. It’s also a good film to discover Brazil, through the big cities like Rio de Janeiro, the deep country, the inequalities, the poverty, the youth, the violence, the religion etc.This film is well-known in Brazil, because of its realism and its commitment against all the inequalities and problems of this country. The main actress, Fernanda Montenegro, is a star in Brazil, and she won a lot of trophies around the world for her performances.

I chose this film, but I also advise you other films if you want: the Imitation Game, Whiplash, Inside Llewyn Davis or the Freedom Writers.

Hi everybody,

I'm really disappointed because i would have liked to speak about this fantastic football player Oscar is, so I decided to mix both subjects to speak about a movie I saw recently and which created a lot of controversies one or two months ago.

I'm speaking about Cristiano's Ronaldo movie "Ronaldo" ! I don't know why he wasn't nominated for The Oscar awarded so much he's a good actor (I'm laughing of course !) What a sh*** movie !

For me this movie is really stupid and can be judged as a "ovni" movie whit differents stagings ludicrous that everybody can realise it's false and not natural like some moments where Ronaldo can be seen playing with his son, Cristiano Jr, or dropping him off at school..Or when he is talking about the fact that Portuguese football time would be better with one or two other Cristiano Ronaldo...... Man, PLEASE, try to be modest !

I'm sorry because my judgment isn't objective (yet i tried...) but it was one of the worst movie I have never seen..

Heya !

I choosed an old one to share between us both, old and modern movies : Mrs. Doubtfire.

Main actor is Robin Williams (please note he's not the singer) that died two years ago (RIP !), if you don't know who's is this guy and you want to see a film from him that's a nice first try (Jumanji is also not bad on the adventure category).

I don't plan to spoil any of you (yeah, I'm not yet so sadistic), just giving a few facts :
- We've a family with 3 children (2 girls, 1 boy) + the couple on USA
- The father resigned himself from his position, then the couple separated
- Mother kept the full child custody (legal right to take care of them) and the father looked for opportunities to take care of them
- Father will change of life and will be called : Mrs. Doubtfire !

I let you guess what will happen after, etc ...

This film always makes me laugh, that's a basic comedy but still amazing with a light humor.

Yo , yo , yo
I'm agree with Tsiry, it cool be great if the new trilogy of Harry Potter will be adapted to a real movies !
Like, The Lord of the Rings or Star Wars recently.
When a Saga best sellers who every body thinking it's finish, reappears on the screen, the biggest fan are often very severe with new film. They make lot's of negatives critics because they say " gna gna gna it's not like before" or " gna gna gna it's the same things like before" , no matter what will be the film they will dislike the film.

Fuck them, the appearance of new film in a very good saga, is a very good thing. Even though the new film has the perfect quality that can be expected

Hi everybody,

As I don't get the hype around Oscars, I wanted to come back on one of Theo's propositions, Imitation Game.

It relates the true story of Alan Turing during the Second World War. Allies couldn't decrypt the messages of German army encoded with Enigma, so even if you intercepted a radio message, you couldn't use it to anticipate the actions of ennemy. That's why Britain decided to hire a team of mathematicians, led by Alan Turing, in order to break the code.
The movie focuses on the fate of Turing, both a great genius (he also creating the Turing Test to recognize an artificial intelligence) and an eccentric person. If he changed the course of history, he also faced a lot of personnal difficulties but I will not spoil the movie.

Moreover, the two main actors are really perfect : on one hand you have Benedict Cumberbatch, the amazing actor of Sherlock, and on the other hand Keira Knightley. That's why even if the movie modifies some aspects of reality, actors made the movie really fascinating. So watch it if you can Smile

Hello everybody

First of all, I don't know many things about Oscars ceremony recently apart that Leonardo Di Caprio won his first Oscar. I think it's not the event of the year so I will not talk you about this.

Recently, I watched three movies at the cinema. Don't worry I will not to spoile you .

Firstly, Deadpool, I really recommend you to watch this film because this is a film which changes very much than other marvels movies.
The main character has a very particular humor and it's that wich that Deadpool is a good film.
Deadpool is more violent than other marvels movies.

Secondly, The Tuches 2 , it's a film very funny as good as the first one.
We find the famous classless family in a tome 2 which really changes that the first.

Finally, I watched Tomorow, this is a film about environment, durable development, green growth and innovation.
In contrary to this type of film which show only the negative effect of the human life and the globalization, the environemental disasters and the progressive earth destruction, Tomorrow give many solutions to fight against environemental disaster. It gives new productions method more ecologic and better for human well-being.
It's a movie which show only positives situation and give awareness of things without suggest that everything is lost.

If you must to go at the cinema, I recommand you to watch this last film.

I hope to I gave you the desire to watch this movie.

Have a good weekend

Robin Williams was such a funny man, it's a shame that he suffered from depression.

Most of his movies are worth watching.

I think Leonordo Dicaprio deserves his Oscar. Not because of all the "communication" about the fact that he never won and he is damn but just because he is an incredible actor. Titanic drove him really famous but in my point of view it's not his best role. I really liked him in Shutter Island, Django, Gatsby, Romeo + Juliette and Catch me if you can. His real strengh as an actor is that he can play a wide range of role instead of some actors who play the same kind of role. I didn't see The Revenant and for me Dicaprio didn't win the oscar for this movie but for his cinematographic career. And finally during his speech he gave a message about the planet, he benefits from his victory and his influence to make us aware the imminent danger of the climate change and the fact that we have to react.

Hi,
I'm going to speak about the Oscars but most generally about movie. Don't worry, I won't talk about Leonardo Dicaprio.
I think the Oscars is a great thing because it allows to recompense the hard work of actors.
Yes, it isn't all the actors who work hard but Leonardo Dicaprio yes!
Most seriously, i think movie is very important for human, because it allows to become aware of lot of thing, environment, power of love, peace, money, disease, etc
There are movies about ALL the subject and i really think they could help us to understand what around us because, they show other kind of think.

Hi everybody

I don't know if it's the same for you but for me the aesthetic character of a movie is very important. The music used, the colors, the landscape, charactere's style give me an idea if it's a movie that i will really like or not. For example in the movie Watchmen, the use of woodstock's music such as songs of Janis Joplin, Bob Dylan, The Doors, Jimi Hendrix make that I really appreciate it. Also, the movie Into The Wild is one of the best with Eddie Veder's songs, who wrote an album especially for the movie and with the crazy landscapes of Colorado, California, Alaska...
The nice thing with movies is that we can travel, forget our troubles, learn about the world, the history and in the case of Into the Wild, give us the desire of travel.

Hi classmates !

Finally Leonardo ! GREAT ! GREAT, no i don't give a shit. But that's strange no one talk about the "Scandal" of the last Oscars. It's about the fact that no Black man or woman was nominated to the oscars. Last year, the hopes for diversity were based on one film, Paramount’s “Selma,” which earned two nominations, for best pic and song (winning the latter). This year, there were more opportunities, surprising omissions from the actor included Idris Elba for “Beasts of No Nation,” Will Smith for “Concussion,” Michael B. Jordan from “Creed” and the many young actors in “Compton.” Last year, #OscarSoWhite lit up the Twitter-sphere, generally focused on the acting and directing categories but this year it was for every categories. In my point of view it's only due to a lack of opportunity, it was not about racism at all. And you what do you think ?

Hi everybody,

I want to talk about to Leonardo Dicaprio and the film the revenant. I think the film is very interesting. Leonardo has the lead role. It seems that the film was made in hard conditions. The interpretation of the character is great by Leonardo. It must pass the emotion just with the expression on his face. Indeed, there was not much text. I think he merited that Oscar. However, I find it annoying that journalists talked about that.

Film is a kind of arts contains a lot of things such as the scenes, the settings, all the actors/actresses, the back ground musics etc...I understand that every movie awards could be an honour for those who contributed a lot to make a successful piece of work but everytime when there's a winner, and there should have some 'losers'. The over-discussion or exaggeration (news) after ceremony sometimes are annoying.

Hello everybody,

I don't care about the oscars. But it's the topic so i will talk about a movie from the oscars. This is "A girl in the river : The price of forgivness". This documentary won the oscar of the best short subject documentary. The topic is honnor killing in pakistan.

I never watch this documentary, but i will trust wikipedia. A young women (18 years old) falled in love and was sentenced to an honnor killing by the people in her village. Finally she survives.

The victim of honnor killing are women. More than 1000 women are killed each year by her own family or own village. Just because of a lack of honour or respect for their family...

The Oscar ceremony ended on 28th February. In addition to that everyone was happy for Leonardo DiCaprio who finally won the best actor award. There is also something we talk about a lot. Like the racist problem, the number of gay people among prize-winner. That’s true, none of the gay actors or actresses have won the Oscar prize. And this year, it was Chris Rock who hosted the Oscar ceremony. He talked about at the beginning how Oscar Academy Award discriminated black people in the last few years. That kind of relieve the tension of « white» Oscar. However, after declaring respect attitude to the diversification, Chris Rock made a racist joke which was offensive to Asians. The Oscar Academy didn’t apologize until the Chinese director Li An wrote a letter to protest the racism. I feel so terrible about that. I think there is discrimination everywhere as long as we are different from each other. But I hope that we all make effort to eliminate the discrimination to Black, Asian or gay people.

Hi everybody,

I think the oscar ceremony is a bit boring, because the vote are fixed as others cermony like Eurovision or The Ballon D'or ceremony.
This is probably the main reason there is some polemic about their ceremony.
Then, i recommend you to watch the film for many reasons " Le Livre d'Eli" : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l4aGAqlfIMo .
Firstable the music in the film which is beautiful and permit him to really feel the environnement of the film.
Moreover, the protagonist of the Film i sthe famous Denzel Washington and this fact is very important !!! because he plays very well and he is so skill x).
Finally, i enjoy this film because it's a science fiction film and post apocalyptic which is my prefer kind of film.

Hi Smile
Sorry, I have not followed the Oscar but I just know that Leonardo DiCaprio was finally rewarded for his role in "The revenant". Several times he was nominated for this award but it was not the first time he gets it. I think it's well deserved because it is generally a good actor and his role in "The revenant" it especially incredible.

Leonardo Dicaprio was finally won the best actor award in 28th Oscar ceremony, and we can’t laugh at him anymore, what’s a pity. But to be honest, we must give our applause to him, because it’s really not easy to win this award for him.

I believe that everyone cannot forgive one of his best films “Titanic” In 1998; it brought a true love story to all of us, and earns our tears. “you jump, I jump”, a simple sentence became the eternal classic, moved by the heroine and also the world. Since then, a superstar began appear. But unfortunately, he doesn’t get the best actor award rely on this movie.

17 years later, his dream was come true, but for audience, we felt relived, we can see how hard-working he is, and we seemed to heard his aspirations: “ I was waiting for many years to this award, it’s not to prove that I can do better than others, but to prove that something I’m missing would be sure to all back.

After the 28th Oscar ceremony, i've rematched several most famous movies of Leonardo. After he won the best actor Oscar,It caused a lot of discussion. As the one of the handsome and successful actor of the planet, He has already won any price of movie besides Oscar, this year his dream came true, He has already waited this award for 22 years, but we can't even find any exciting during his speech. I think the time shaped him.

Here i have also one question for one question:" win or nothing". Leonardo has been mocked up for a longtime. No-one could deny his achievement but people are always focused on the result but the evolution. So congratulation to him. and may I take this opportunity to encourage each and every one of us:)

Hello everybody,

I recently watched the movie with Will Smith, Concussion ( Seul contre tous ), i was a little perplexed about this movie, but after seing it I was surprised and pleased. The movie is about a Nigerian doctor, Dr Omalu, played by Will Smith, he's an intellectual and curious man, he's a Neuropathologist in forensic medicine more precisely. One day he has to do the autopsy of a former famous football player. He's confronted to a problem: the man was in really good health but crazy. Dr Omalu decides to make an important brain analysis against the opinion of his colleagues. This analysis reveals a disease caused by the repeated shocks of the american football. Dr Omalu leads a battle against the NFL which doesn't want to publish the study of the doctor. I am not going to tell the end of the movie but I rather say what pleased me. I like the fact that there's always a link with the american dream in american movies. In this movie the problem is that the Dr Omalu is nigerian and not American so he's not taken seriously by the member of the NFL. At the end, Dr Omalu has the possibility to become a real American and to work for the president, but is proud to be nigerian , prouder than to be an american.
I recommend you that movie, and also Will Smith is really a great actor, this role is very well to him.

Hello everyone
My girlfriend is really a big fan of cinema so she forces me to watch weird movies sometimes. She's studying it and she's a professional of the films of Emir Kusturica. It's a bit special but it is really some good movies to see, especially for the music of them which is really great.
I still like some block buster like Marvel movies etc...
But sometimes i need to watch strange documentary about Agnes Varda or some things like that, it's not necessarly interesting and even mostly boring...

I recently watched Batman vs Superman. I was curious about it because it received a quite bad critisism by the press but a good overall critisism by the public. I agree on certain critics that the film feels long because of some scenes wich don't really bring something to the story or are introduced badly. But I think it's because the movie was supposed to be at least 30 minutes longer, because Zack Snyder was compeled to cut several scenes to keep the "all public" label, some of these were too dark or violent for a young public.

But the movie was really dark overall so i think it would be a better film if he didn't cut those scene and concentrate on a mature public. Snyder plans to release a longer version of its film, so i think i will rewatch it.
