Oscars 2020: My Thoughts

Hello it's me, The Blog Complainer.

There were some genuinely good speeches and only one person was … Continue reading Oscars 2020: My Thoughts

The 2020 Crammy Awards

Al-lo everybody. It's me, The Blog Complainer, with a completely original idea, maybe. Watching TV shows is a lot of work and I was hoping to talk about a lot of these shows and share my thoughts on them. Too bad I'm a slow watcher because I was mid-way through The Mandalorian when The Witcher … Continue reading The 2020 Crammy Awards

Uncut Gems: one of the best of the last decade.

I swear this will be the final 2019 movie I talk about!  Blame Australia for releasing the best films months after the rest of the world. A24 are renowned for being one of the few studios to consistently release amazing movies year after year.

Link to Previous Part: The Disneyathon Part 15: Post Disney Renaissance Ugh! It should be illegal for an animated kid’s movie to make you feel so teary eyed!

My Thoughts On The 2020 Oscar Nominations

It's that time of year again where I share my thoughts on the Oscar nominations. We're not messing about so let's begin with... Expecting the Expected I mentioned in the first line of my Jojo Rabbit review that this year's nominations weren't that surprising and everyone getting fed up with what was left out is … Continue reading My Thoughts On The 2020 Oscar Nominations

Jojo Rabbit is a worthy Oscar pick

The Oscars' nominations were announced the other day and it went down pretty much as I expected. Yeah, I have my gripes like everyone else does, but as I said I wasn't the least bit surprised. But that is a topic for another day. I have been catching up on all of the movies I … Continue reading Jojo Rabbit is a worthy Oscar pick

1917 – A Technical Masterpiece!
