Great Acting and taking you to a different place isn't enough to even make this movie one of the best of the year. Maybe the subject matter is too dark or maybe it's just too slow but this theory doesn't hold me at the same level as the other nominees.
Brilliant! This movie has captured the never say die attitude we see in movies such a Rocky and taken it to the dark side like "Black Swan" with an incredible script and acting that is off the charts. What's also incredible about this film is it doesn't follow the formula we see in so many films today. The only draw back is it still didn't capture the emotional highs and lows that we see in "American Sniper" but I wouldn't be disappointed if it won best film of the year.
Fine film that had it's funny moments which was visually appealing with wonderful cinematography skill. Original screenplay with interesting characters that moved at a rapid pace. Overall it's a fine film but not the best film of the year because other then the visual aspect there was nothing else outstanding.
What a brilliant piece of art that brings the audience in to all aspects of war and the effects it has on family and friends. Most importantly it truly show cases the true heroes that are willing to sacrifice it all to give us the freedom to write pieces like this.
Interesting way to film a movie but still boring. This is why none of our normal life's are filmed over 12 years. I'm curious if the liberal bias helped it get it's nomination. Boyhood makes the top ten boring movies of the year.
