Incredible films from 2015. A list that will surely grow as the awards season continues. Will repost with updates. (Inspired my good bud @anotsaint.)

In no particular order:

The Revenant
Ex Machina
Macbeth
Steve Jobs
Tangerine
Sicario
The Martian
Trainwreck
Amy
The Visit

A month ago, me and my lovely sis @ravenlindberg watched “50 shades of grey” together. Dubbed. In japanese. With Kenjiru Tsuda playing Mr Grey. 

That was quite the ride. As in humour for the first 96 minutes and endless cringe after that. There’s a reason an amazing test like this exist XD

And I found the snapchatchats I did with poor @ashethehedgehog, it was also kind of a ride to go through again and I thought I would share some of it. Sorry for tormenting you like that ashe ;_;

In summation; the movie itself wasn’t good anywhere, and I fail to see how this can be classified as a romantic story, but hearing Kaibas voice to all of it was amazing, so I give the movie ten out of ten.

Sorkin’s unapologetically fictitious take on the Apple founder cuts to the core of the Steve Jobs myth

The movie holds human connection in higher regard than technological progress, and for all the time Jobs spends trying to lead through art, design, and the revolutions he helped spearhead, he seldom looks behind to connect with the people he leads. By saying, “I’m poorly made,” Jobs confesses that he understands that fundamental flaw; that perhaps all his achievements were borne out of his need to escape his own weaknesses.

“Steve Jobs” Loves a Genius

Buttressed by [Michael] Fassbender, who is as meticulous as ever, “Steve Jobs” delivers what has become a standard dichotomy: Jobs could be a monster, but he was also a genius. We don’t see him—to pick just a couple of the childish sins anthologized by Isaacson—attending a Halloween party dressed as Jesus, or regularly parking athwart two parking spaces for the disabled, but don’t worry, there is plenty of crappy behavior to gawk at. 

Jobs chews out the hapless Wozniak (a better writer of code and an infinitely nicer human), in public, from the stage of an auditorium, just to ram home the execration. Yet not for a minute are we invited to doubt that Jobs was, in the long run, right, and that he belongs in the company of those famed achievers—Einstein, Gandhi, and so on—who littered Apple’s “Think Different” campaign.
