Squashed Tomatoes

What's with the Academy rewarding Oscars here and there to Birdman.  It was clever, but was it great?  No.  

There were more enjoyable films out there.  Grand Budapest Hotel, clever, beautiful and entertaining, did I say endearing?  Whiplash, painful to watch but revealing, good.  The Imitation game, moving to the end.  

American Sniper was alright up there even with its dragging pace and detached feel.

Nightcrawler or Guardians of the Galaxy - yes will be watching them too.
