The 2017 Academy Awards finally has its nominees, and we’re sure you’ve come across a detailed list here and a “Who got snubbed?” article there.
This list, however, is dedicated to helping you find out how to find these films – whether on the big-screen or the small-screen. We also wedged our opinions in there for more food-for-thought and shameless self-promotion.
Also nominated for: Actress in a Supporting Role (Octavia Spencer), Adapted Screenplay
What we thought: “This is the real-life tale of three African-American women who didn’t get enough credit for their contributions to NASA and the space race, making it an immensely valuable story to tell.” -Liam Maguren, 3 stars
Also nominated for: Actor in a Supporting Role (Ryan Gosling), Actress in a Supporting Role (Emma Stone), Cinematography, Costume Design, Directing, Film Editing, Original Score, Original Song (‘Audition (The Fools Who Dream)’ & ‘City of Stars’), Production Design, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Original Screenplay
What we thought: “There’s a tangible familiarity to this world that makes it all the more accessible. And impactful. Rarely has a musical felt so…real.” -Dominic Corry, 5 stars
Also nominated for: Actor in a Supporting Role (Mahershala Ali), Actress in a Supporting Role (Naomie Harris), Cinematography, Directing, Film Editing, Original Score, Adapted Screenplay
What we thought: “With the precision of a cinematic diamond cutter, filmmaker Barry Jenkins has crafted a great three-chapter chronicle of a soft-spoken black man named Chiron whose true self is constantly denied by the environment that engulfs him.” -Liam Maguren, 4 stars
What we thought: “Farcical, laugh-out-loud funny, touching, sentimental, Toni Erdmann brings the words “German” and “comedy” together with a raucous, jubilant, twisted and hugely welcome wallop of wunderba!” -Adam Fresco
We spent 12 months on this new Flicks website, and when the rubber met the road, a developer who shall rename nameless didn't finish our member login and sign-ups. Literally everything else got done. But not member login and sign-ups. He had a good crack at it. Came up short. It happens.
Good news is, it'll be finished shortly. Please try again in a day or so. We appreciate your patience.
