Oscar 2020 predictions..perhaps the only time i use my blog

Posted by mogway on Saturday February 1, 2020

So the Oscars will be upon us next weekend, and now i’ve seen all the movies from the best pictures category.
I will try to do my best in predicting who gets the win haha, the winners will be in bold, if i have a personal favorite i will put them in italian so if i agree it will only be in bold 😛

Best motion picture of the year nominees:
FORD V FERRARI Peter Chernin, Jenno Topping and James Mangold, Producers
I enjoyed this movie, wasn’t anything too special, a good solid movie about the history of Ford vs Ferrari and on the Le Mans circuit. 7/10
THE IRISHMAN Martin Scorsese, Robert De Niro, Jane Rosenthal and Emma Tillinger Koskoff, Producers
I probably would’ve enjoyed this movie more if it wasn’t 3,5 freaking hours…. it was too long, overdone, some things could’ve been left out, decent movie if you have about 3,5 hours to kill 7.5/10
JOJO RABBIT Carthew Neal, Taika Waititi and Chelsea Winstanley, Producers
This movie was a big surprise, normally we don’t get a comedy like this as a best picture. It was a funny movie but also moving at some points and made you think about what people have done to each other at that point. 8/10
JOKER Todd Phillips, Bradley Cooper and Emma Tillinger Koskoff, Producers
I’ve seen the joker when it came out and i already knew then it would be nominated for best picture. I truly think Joaquin Phoenix deserves the oscar for best actor in a leading role. This movie was so dark (yeah they’re sure it’s from DC) and creepy but it showed a whole different way to the Joker…Still a bit upset Endgame didn’t get nominated nor the Lion King while they smashed the box office, this year it’s difficult to pick a true winner but this movie impressed me the most 9/10
LITTLE WOMEN Amy Pascal, Producer
Although i wasn’t really looking forward to this movie, it was the best surprise of them all. It had beautiful costumes and solid acting by the leading ladies. I am however sick of the pro-women we can do this shit type of movies, i’m a woman i know that already. 8/10
MARRIAGE STORY Noah Baumbach and David Heyman, Producers
This movie felt like Amour to me…if i wanted to see life’s tragedy i’d go back to the time my own parents got a divorce. Perhaps if you never gone through that you might “enjoy” this movie. Although the subject was hard, the acting was superb! 7/10
1917 Sam Mendes, Pippa Harris, Jayne-Ann Tenggren and Callum McDougall, Producers
The cinematography was awesome but that’s it, it’s a movie we’ve seen before many times, it was long, boring and predictable, it never moved me, and i watched it in the theater. 6/10
ONCE UPON A TIME…IN HOLLYWOOD David Heyman, Shannon McIntosh and Quentin Tarantino, Producers
I remember watching this movie ALONE! in the movie theater haha. If you’re not American this is a hard movie to understand, i’ve heard people leave the theater here in the Netherlands simply because they thought it was boring, and to someone who isn’t really involved with American culture it can be quite boring. I sorta love things American and I got most of the little things Tarantino put into them, also the ending was quite shocking haha. 7.5/10
PARASITE Kwak Sin Ae and Bong Joon Ho, Producers
If i’m wrong about the Joker then this movie will win, the only problem I had with this movie was it wasn’t in English haha. It’s creepy, funny and has some surprising elements in it. 8.5/10

Oscar day 2

Posted by mogway on Saturday February 23, 2019

I watched 3 of the 4 movies today, i didn’t bother with rewatching Black Panther for a 3rd time…although it has Andy Serkis in it and it’s a Marvel movie i couldn’t be bothered with it. It’s not that good of a movie the story is mediocre and people probably know why it’s nominated.

Vice Probably the most funny thing about vice is the extra scene in the end credits, other than that another boring politics movie. The actors try to do well but the story is boring and jumps all over the place. It’s hard to follow sometimes and if you’re not American (like me) you probably don’t care at all. I really got bored to death a few times by this movie, not the worst movie that’s still Roma but this one is a close second! 5 out of 10

A Star is Born This was the 2nd time I’ve watched this movie and it’s still a pretty darn amazing movie. Especially when you watch it the 2nd time and you know all the songs cause you listened to the soundtrack almost on repeat. I still love this movie and again i was in tears when Lady Gaga started singing I’ll never love again. Still 10 out of 10

Green Book Another movie i didn’t know nothing about when starting this, and like Blackkklansman it took me by surprise. Again a racial movie, this is becoming a theme Oscar people…please stop it!!! Let’s just get good movies!! And Green Book deserves to be Oscar nominated! It’s based upon a true story too, never heard about the main character of the movie but it was very entertaining and heartbreaking at some points. The acting of Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali is amazing, i’ve always liked both actors. Although the movie is also over 2 hours (it’s a theme this year with the Oscars too) it does not bore you (or me) for one second! I give it a 9 out of 10.

Tomorrow I’ll do my annual predictions let’s see how many I’ll get wrong hahaha…

So Oscar day 1..

Posted by mogway on Sunday February 17, 2019

the Favourite a bitch fight between 2 cunts (they used it several times in the movie so i can use it too) with costumes on in ancient times where they already used the word fuck….pro Mark Gettis was in it! 6/10

BlacKKKlansman i LOVED this one, it had humor and suspense and action, based upon real shit as they said, the real footage at the end were a bit too much could’ve done without that but all and all an amazing movie and I suggest you see it. 9/10

Bohemiam Rhapsody
, i can’t be unbiased about that movie lol still LOVE IT!!! 2nd time it was amazing too. 10/10

Roma omg i was so freaking bored with this one, evermore than with the Favourite which i didn’t think was possible, the movie is in black and white so boring, it’s not in english so even more boring…the story boring not making sense, acting was ok, but i wouldn’t want to waste 2h14 on this movie..3/10

Posted by mogway on Sunday March 4, 2018

Not that I have any influence on the voting or anything, I like to play the Oscar predicting game, after seeing all the best pictures and some of the other movies I think I have a good perspective on them.

What we’ve learned this year from the best pictures: Old is new, movies about historic events are hot or movies that take place in the past. Sex with animals is okay, just as sex with a minor of the same gender under the roof of the minors parents, racism is good.

Oscars 2018 day 2

Posted by mogway on Sunday March 4, 2018

So the 2nd day is here. Also at the end of this day or maybe tomorrow depends on how it ends i’ll predict the Oscars.

Dunkirk
So guess what read My rewiew of July 25th 2017 and where I predict Dunkirk being nominated for Best Picture I’m good! XD. Previous rating was 10 out of 10 and seeing it again hasn’t changed my opinion on that.

Darkest Hour
Although this movie lacks action and is mostly conversation it does not bore. This movie is very well made, the story and the feeling are just right, and the acting is superb! I do hope that Gary Oldman will get an oscar for him amazing portrait of Winston Churchill. Also seeing this right after Dunkirk makes it a lot more special, since you’ve seen the side of the war in the movie before and now you see what happened to make the rescue of the troop possible.
After seeing a good portion of movies I believe this one is a strong contender for best picture, I wasn’t impressed by the Shape of Water at all but I am by this movie. I give this one 9 out of 10.

Call Me by Your Name
I was dreading this movie the most, but it surprised me a bit. Move over Brokeback mountain there’s a new favorite Gay movie out there, while BBM left some things to wonder this movie doesn’t. The character of Oliver is a bit weird though, he changes his mind a lot, now it could also be the time this all happened cause in 1982 gays weren’t excepted as much as they are today. The only thing that is disturbing to me is Elio’s age…if they would’ve made him 19 it would’ve been so much better but he is still a child and sometimes acts that way too. Certainly not the best movie for the Oscars but it’s one that breaks the taboo’s. 8 out of 10, would’ve been a higher rating but it was a bit too long and the age thing.

The Post
I already wanted to see this movie, and when I saw the trailer I kinda already knew it would be an Oscar picture so I waited till today. It’s always a risk when having lots of stars in your cast when trying to tell a good story. But the names do not distract you from the fact what this movie is about. The acting was great and the story adaption was amazing too. Although this is a drama movie it doesn’t bore at all and it has you on the edge of your seat. I really think the oscar for best picture will be between the Post and the Darkest Hour. A must see movie! 9 out of 10.

Get out
Honestly don’t know why this one is for best movie, the story is weak and predictable and racist in a way too. The acting is good but that’s it. It’s not even scary, it’s supposed to be a horror / thriller but i found myself bored along the way. Maybe it’s because I’ve seen many horror movies that this one doesn’t do anything for me. 5 out of 10

Will do the predictions tomorrow as it is 1.30 AM here lol

Oscars 2018 day 1

Posted by mogway on Saturday February 24, 2018

I’m watching all the best nominated picture movies this Saturday and next week.
Here i will give a short comment about my opinion about them, they may contain spoilers.
Click on their name to see the IMDB page

Phantom Thread
This movie was horrible it was long and utterly boring, i honestly can;t see why it should be nominated for best picture. I love Daniel Day Lewis and his acting was good but other than that it was truly horrible, he knew she was poisoning him at the end so why stay? Did he really love her? i was happy when the end credits came. 3/10

Lady Bird
I enjoyed watching Lady Bird, it was a nice easy movie with a good story and acting. A little predictable but that didn’t make it less enjoying. It was just long enough and it somewhat felt like a love story towards Sacramento. 7.5/10

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
When i saw the trailer i wanted to see this movie, but alas it didn’t live up to the greatness i was expecting. The acting was great and the story was good too, but it wasn’t complete. They give you a case to think about and work towards it only to lead you astray in the end and you’re no wiser than when you started the movie. I must say this was an epic performance by Woody Harrelson he was truly amazing in this movie. It was nice seeing a lot of great actors come together in this movie. 7.5 / 10

The shape of water
Not sure if im the only one but i kept on seeing Abe from Hellboy in the asset, it’s the same actor but they could’ve at least tried to make him look a bit different. It worked in Star Trek discovery. Ok about this movie, it’s an ok movie, the story is predictable and long, strangely weird too and some parts are just disturbing! (I am a cat lover) The acting was amazing especially by Sally Hawkins who besides Doug Jones had the fewest lines in the movie. It looked amazing though and Octavia Spencer is such a great actrice. It was a bit too romantic for my liking. The sets were amazing though and even if the Asset looked a lot like Abe he was gorgeously made. 7.8/10

In memoriam: Rohan

Posted by mogway on Monday November 6, 2017

02-07-2008 / 06-11-2017

I so don’t want to do this, cause this one hurts! They all hurt but we had a pact Rohan, we’d stay together after all the females have gone.
We would be together and come closer and grow old. Unfortunately we didn’t grow old together.
It all happened so fast, last week from Thursday you’d sniffle a bit, nothing too major but you weren’t feeling yourself.
You didn’t walk as fast as you used to but you could still walk down the stairs and sometimes let me carry you up the stairs.
Which was really something cause you didn’t like to be held. But over the past weekend and today I was allowed to carry you, snuggle with you and hold you so close like i’ve never done before.
Alas this was all because you weren’t feeling too well. I noticed Sunday morning you were not yourself, you miauwed the whole night keeping me and the girls (Isilya, Valanya & Teigertje) awake.
But you ate and drank milk and let everyone know you were there, miauwing all the way.
Your miauws weren’t cries from pain like you did in September when I took you to the vet to check up on your leg cause you were struggling a bit with walking.

At the vets you showed everyone back then that you were the man and started a full blown I attack everything that comes near me…even me, my scars haven’t fully healed yet.
But today the ride to the vet was different, you miauwed a few times but it didn’t feel like you were still fighting, more like it’s ok I know it.
Some little sparkle of fighting left in you when the vet tried to look into your mouth, she saw that your tongue was a little bit red, but than you closed your mouth and refused to open it, you didn’t bite hard but you just didn’t want to let go.
I will never truly know what was wrong with you since you were already so weak, and I didn’t want to put you through more tests, the vet wasn’t even sure if you’d make it even if we tried.
Even if I already knew it was bad it was still a shock, since you were only 9, I wasn’t prepared for this.
The last few days we’ve cuddled so much like we never have in all of your 9 years. You were THA MAN! you didn’t need cuddles and affection, sometimes you’d want to cuddle but only on your terms.

On the 3rd of September 2008 Rohan came to live with us, my neighbor who bred cats thought he was too ugly. And yeah she was right, Rohan wasn’t a pretty young man when he was born but he sure grew up to be one with his gorgeous big orange eyes.
After Rohan I had 6 cats and he was the only male, the females weren’t nice to him to start with but he never really cared.
He was (like Gizmo) always fine to be on his own, but enjoyed the laser pen a lot. He also had a stuffed rat with whom he played a lot when he was little. Last Friday I got a nice new stuffed animal with catnip and you were the only one who really loved it and played with it.
I started a blog for Rohan (it’s all in Dutch).. I didn’t keep it up only a few posts about his starting life with us…wish I had kept on going it, he was the little one so I thought we’d make many more memories 😦

Things I remember right now, Rohan loved ice cream! LOL he always wanted some, he also tried to steal my steak once lol, but mostly he’d let me eat in peace, also on the rare occasions I had Shoarma you always wanted a piece of meat, or 2, maybe 3 🙂
But omg my pumpkin soup he’d go crazy if I made that, and he always wanted some of that too.
He was very afraid of the vacuum cleaner, so when I’d clean the house he’d always be the 1st one upstairs and the last one downstairs to make sure that evil loud thing was gone.
After that he’d always jump on my desk and complain about the noise, or I think he did cause he’d miauw loud and want some cuddles.
He’d always run upstairs when the doorbell rang, and especially if Chamook would come, he has never liked Chamook one bit! From the 1st time he saw him till the last time which was on the 28th of October. Normally he’d run upstairs but he wasn’t fast anymore so Rohan decided to stay downstairs.
As soon as Chamook found him, Rohan started to hiss and let Chamook know he didn’t want to play. After an hour or so I wanted to feed Teigertje, and he heard her miauw for food, he then was THA MAN walked passed Chamook like he owned the place and wanted his food too.

#yummyinmytummy there goes my ice cream lol #rohan

He started the annoying habit of maiuwing for food too, cause what Teigertje does he needs to do too.
He’d always love some treats and let you know if he thought you’d forget about him.
He was never really seeking attention, I mostly had to search for him and try to get some cuddles.
Sometimes at night he’d wake me up and purr real loud cause he wanted to cuddle, and in the morning he’d slowly walk up to me and either miauw, touch my nose with his paw or lick my face so I’d get up, he could really wake you up in the sweetest way.
He sometimes liked to sneak under the covers and just lay there and purr away.

Since Rohan was an unneutered male and a special race called Selkirk Rex, I thought it might be a nice idea to also breed with him. So my neighbor brought over a cat in heat so that he could do his business. I locked the 2 cats into the special cat room I have and waited. After 2 hours Rohan started miauwing like a mad man. He didn’t want to go anywhere near that weird woman and her longing miauws. I didn’t let him out right away but after 6 hours he was truly complaining that he didn’t want to be with her. So I let him out of the room and the poor cat in heat was returned unsatisfied to my neighbor. I never tried to breed with him again and I jokingly called him my gay cat. I was lucky he never sprayed.

My sweet little boy Rohan, named after the region for the horselords Rohirrim from Lord of the Rings, my Selkirk Rex, I will miss you like crazy and I am happy for the 9 years we’ve spent together, I am sad that we didn’t have more time to make more memories. I will never forget you, you have been the only man in my life for the past 7 years. Thank you for letting me hold you and cuddle you in your final days even if it was only you didn’t have the strength to be too manly to not want to cuddle with my… Say hi to Freya and Gizmo, and let us hope that 2018 will be the 1st year I will not have to give up a kid, cause it’s going way to fast…We love you Rohan…
