Because Kipp enjoys spending our time speculating about things to come we bring to you our top pick of films that are sure to have a significant presence at the Oscars this year (with comments from Rotten Tomatoes, of course):
The Social Network: “Impeccably scripted, beautifully directed, and filled with fine performances, The Social Network is a riveting, ambitious example of modern filmmaking at its finest.”
Inception: “Smart, innovative, and thrilling, Inception is that rare summer blockbuster that succeeds viscerally as well as intellectually.”
Black Swan: “Bracingly intense, passionate, and wildly melodramatic, Black Swan glides on Darren Aronofsky’s bold direction — and a bravura performance from Natalie Portman.” (Best Actress shoo-in thinks Kipp)
The King’s Speech: “Colin Firth gives a masterful performance in The King’s Speech, a predictable but stylishly produced and rousing period drama.”
127 Hours: “As gut-wrenching as it is inspirational, 127 Hours unites one of Danny Boyle’s most beautifully exuberant directorial efforts with a terrific performance from James Franco.”
