So, now we have lastly closed the e book on 2010. Now, as we transition into the brand new yr, that is when most individuals replicate again on the yr earlier than. Within the film world, that is additionally when critics and film lovers take the time to overview the previous yr. To not point out, that is awards season. With the Critics’ Alternative Awards in simply a few weeks and the Oscars lower than two months in the past, suffice to say the pink carpet is formally out.
At this time, I’ll throw myself into that very ring as we carry you Sofa Potato Membership’s 2010 Film Awards. Up entrance, although, I wish to go forward and say, I am going to do that totally different than these large award reveals. For one, you may see a few of the typical classes, however likewise there will probably be some off-beat ones. Additionally, name me loopy, however I consider the most important think about judging a film is its leisure worth. Granted the entire different little aspects of creating a film assist to make a film higher, nonetheless I consider leisure succeeds a film’s technical prowess in an effort to outline whether or not it’s good or not. So, you will not be seeing me awarding these “artsy” motion pictures simply due to their “cinematic achievement” (regardless of the hell that’s). As an alternative, I will be judging on good ole leisure worth (with performing, story, and so forth. enjoying components).
So, with out additional ado, listed here are the winners of the primary annual Sofa Potato Membership Film Awards.
Greatest Movie: Inception
For me this got here right down to Inception and Black Swan. I’ve truthfully spent days mulling it over in my head which might be my film of the yr. Nevertheless, ultimately, Inception wins out. Inceptionwas additionally excellent in a way. With clever writing, good performing, enjoyable motion, nice cinematography and so forth and so forth, the film proved to be superior fashion with nice substance. Nolan proved as soon as once more right here why he’s one among (if not THE) most wanted filmmakers as we speak. A story genius. After watching this film, it made me understand what a god-send Nolan is to Hollywood actually. Everyone in Hollywood must be taking notes. That is precisely how a blockbuster film must be achieved. Let’s not child ourselves, blockbuster motion movies will proceed to be the bread and butter of Hollywood for a while to return. Whereas that is alright, the issue often lies in that they are so shallow and cliche and simply “eh”. They often simply depend on cool motion sequences and superior wanting particular results. Not Inception, although. This film gives all that, however then really brings substance to that fashion giving us a fascinating and mind-bending/clever storyline to go together with it. This excellent mix makes Inception my film of the yr.
Greatest Actor: James Franco – 127 Hours
I’ve stated it earlier than and I will say it once more: you wish to take a look at the advantage of an actor? Throw him in a film the place he’s just about the one one ever on-screen and he has to hold your entire film himself. The place the entire weight of your entire film rests most assuredly on his shoulders. Will he shine? Will he crumble? That is the take a look at. Others have confirmed themselves in the identical approach (Will Smith, Tom Hanks). And really I consider this (and the “retard position”) is among the largest methods to check an actor and see if he is one of many greats. So, enter James Franco and 127 Hours. Taking part in a mountain climber that will get trapped below a boulder and is on their own, Franco is left to hold a whole movie on his personal. Does he succeed? Rattling proper he does. With flying colours at that. Protecting it attention-grabbing, conveying a variety of feelings all through the movie and sucking you in all on his personal, Franco clearly reveals he had the mettle to sort out such a frightening activity and are available out on prime. For that purpose, he is my actor of the yr.
Greatest Actress: Natalie Portman – Black Swan
Natalie’s efficiency within the Aronofsky psychological thriller is totally good. Her finest work to-date for my part. Taking part in a task that requires her to ultimately transition from candy little naive princess woman to girl-gone-wild (in a darkish aspect kinda approach), she hits each beat with out lacking a step. I consider the most important issue for a great actor/actress is vary. Anyone can shine in a component that was simply made for them (according to their pure persona), however vary and enjoying totally different personas/characters is the place an actor/actress can present their true prowess. In Black Swanalone, Natalie Portman has proven, in simply the two hours, that she has extra vary than most actresses round. She exhibited extra vary in a single efficiency than most do of their complete profession. For such an excellent efficiency Natalie Portman will get my vote as actress of the yr. I do not assume that is even up for debate.
Greatest Supporting Actor: Christian Bale – The Fighter
This is one other that I really feel is only a given and is not up for debate. Bale completely stole the present in each scene he appeared in The Fighter. The load loss alone reveals Bale’s dedication to his craft. Moreover, the way in which he was in a position to lose himself in that crackhead persona and into the position of Dicky Eklund simply additional proved what a tremendous actor Bale is. To actually present you the way good his efficiency was, the video clip of real-life Dicky through the credit confirmed you simply how properly Bale nailed that efficiency. It needed to virtually be like wanting in a mirror for Dicky.
