Do We Care About the Oscars? American Sniper

By Newguy

Do We Care About the Oscars?

The idea behind this is to look back at every single film that was nominated for,

·   Best Picture

·   Best Actor

·   Best Actress

·   Best Supporting Actor

·   Best Supporting Actress

·   Best Director

 By looking back at these I will be asking the questions below to find out whether this is a film to be watched or not. This is not a full review and if I have seen the film in question I will give my rating of said film. I will also not be comparing or suggesting any other films that could or should have won this is just looking at a film and seeing if it still stands in the memory.

Film: American Sniper

american sniper

Oscar Wins: 1 Best Sound Editing.

Oscar Nominations: 5, Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Film Editing, Best Sound Mixing.

Have I Seen It?

Yes – My Rating 70%

Will I Watch It Again? No

Should Everyone Have Seen It? No because it is all about making America look like the strongest war hero country.

Most Memorable Part? I honestly can’t remember anything from this film.

Thoughts On the Film: The film is so centred around trying to make out how much of a hero Chris Kyle was but also how he struggled with his personally life between conflict. In the end this is a long film that is a lot of slow building scenes with the sniper shots going on and nothing much else.

Do We Care It Got Oscar Attention? No because this is a very dull film that didn’t deserve the praise it received.
