One of the few masterpieces released in 2007. Tony Gilroy does a fantastic job writing and directing this film, I hope to see more work in the future from him. This was one of the few performances of George Clooney's that I actually liked. It was more than like in this case, I thought his performance was one of the best male performances of thea year, it was genius. I am glad this movie received 7 Oscar nominations, I was afraid the film might not get the attention it deserves. I also MUST mention Tilda Swinton, who is AMAZING in this film, I loved her intense performance. Tom Wilkinson also gives a great performance. I'm glad all 3 are nominated for Oscars!
The Coen Brother's new film is a complete thriller. It is perfectly acted, with Javier Bardem creating one of the scariest villians since Anthony Hopkins in The Silence of the Lambs. The film was nominated for 8 Oscars and I believe it will do very well, I will definetly be rooting for Bardem in the Supporting Actor category, it would be a well deserved Oscar win for him!
The very talented director Stephen Frears brings us one of his best films in "The Queen." A perfect film - not too long, stunning performances, great cinematography, beautiful costumes. "The Queen" which felt suprisingly short (could have gone on another 30 minutes in my opinion), is one of the best films I have seen this year. I hope that it gets nominated for Best Picture, as it deserves it greatly. Helen Mirren is deserving of every Best Actress award she has won so far this awards season, as she has alot more to win, including her first Oscar that she will win in Feb. Michael Sheen is also great as PM Tony Blair, and James Cromwell is also fantastic as Prince Philip. The score by Alexandre Desplat is also effective, as he is one of my favorite composers, ever since I heard his score for the film "Birth" which should have been nominated for an Oscar. But I do give this film a 10 because it is the best film I have seen this year, and if someone asked me what a perfect film was, I would simply say, "The Queen."
Bill Condon, who has brought us great films like "Gods and Monsters" and "Chicago," has created yet another masterpeice. His new film "Dreamgirls" transports audiences to the creation of Mowtown, in a barely disguised take on Diana Ross and Barry Gordy. Jamie Foxx, Beyonce Knowles, and Eddie Murphy star in the film, but the film is stolen from the bigger name actors by American Idol finalist Jennifer Hudson. Hudson turns in the best performance in a musical since Nicole Kidman in "Moulin Rouge!" and is at this moment virtually assured a Best Supporting Actress Oscar this Feb. The scene where Hudson performs the song "And I am telling you I'm not going" is perhaps the best scene in a musical in 30 years at least, the audience in the theatre I saw the film in applauded at the end of the scene, which is something I have never experienced before. All in all, the film should be considered a serious contender for the Best Picture Oscar, I even dare to say that the film is better than "Chicago" which won Best Picture in 2003. But clearly the best thing about this film is Jennifer Hudson, she shines as Effie, but I must also applaud Beyonce Knowles and Eddie Murphy who turn in above average performances, it is by far Knowles' best performance. I thought the costumes and production design was also great. The only thing I did not like about the film was Jamie Foxx, I do not think this was a role that he should have played, I just did not buy him in this role, and I think his acting was below average.
