About the Author

Despite my 9-5 being consumed by the daily duties of an Electrician, Movie Review World serves as a platform for me to share my thoughts, explorations and reflections on one of my biggest passions, film.

  1. Mark Walker says:

    Hey Allan! What’s your thoughts on them? I found it to be quite a strange list. I’m surprised there’s only 8 from a possible 10 best pictures and the likes of Foxcatcher not making the cut. I’m also a bit gutted for Jake Gyllenhaal getting snubbed for Nightcrawler. Bradley Cooper three years in a row? Far better actors than him have never achieved that.

    • Allan Brown says:

      Hey Mark. I totally agree. Foxcatcher snubbed for Best Picture, but ‘The Imitation Game’ (a film I found to be nothing more than sentimental dross) makes it up there for not only for Best Picture, but every major award on the board. Who drafts up these lists? As for Gyllenhaal, he has gone from strength to strength and is – in my opinion – one of the few Hollywood actors of his generation really pushing himself as an actor. Nightcrawler was not only an incredibly bold film but was one of the best performances of the year, in my opinion.

      So yeah, I too am disappointed.

    Surprised and disappointed “The Lego Movie’ hasn’t been given a nod for best animated feature !

    • Allan Brown says:

      Hey Alison, There seems to be a real buzz of disappointment online for that snub. For me though, I managed 40mins of ‘The Lego Movie’ before I threw the towel in haha. It was either that, or risk both my eyes and ears bleeding simultaneously. haha.
