    I haven't watched Brooklyn either. I did watch Room. Brie Larson won an Oscar for her role.
    What about The Revenant?

    I liked it. Hard to watch in certain parts but I could buy an argument that it should've won that year.

    Kane should have won of course ,But How Green is still excellent even if it is a bit sappy

    Actually that's my favorite from 2015. One of the best films I've ever seen. :)

    don't agree ET is excellent ,Blade Runner would have been my choice ,but not the version I first saw in the Theatre ,which also had a crappy print,It is simply a better movie now in 4k

    Like I always say: Not all film years are created equal. ;)

    Oh, and I too prefer Argo to Spotlight.

    I agree.. Jack Nicholson is in top form and Faye Dunaway is at her bitchy best.

    I've only watch Wings recently and it's amazing how they performed and filmed the flying sequences. Makes Top Gun look like a cartoon.

    Thoroughly deserves the title for 'Best Picture' of 1928 (and all time).

    It's Felix It's not really me

    Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is the winner this year. Hands down.

    I saw Blade Runner at Warner Bros. about three weeks before it hit theaters, and I said, "oh, jesus, is this thing gonna bomb." And it did. I liked it visually very much, but I think it's a downbeat film with a lot of weird plot problems and odd structure. I'm a huge Phillip K. Dick fan, but I think they changed enough from the original novel that it didn't work as well for me as a film. I don't dispute it's been extremely influential over time, and it's a beautiful film to look at. But an Oscar best picture? No way.

    Not sure I'd say it deserved BP, but honestly, that's not a stellar roster of movies.

    I actively disliked "Brooklyn" and I thought "MM:FR" was absurdly overrated, but the rest are... pretty good. There's not a single one that clearly stands above the rest to me...

    Spielberg entered Trying Too Hard Mode in 1985. With a few exceptions, he never left!

    Mad Max: Fury Road should have won. Time will correct that one.

    are they sticking with the 8 nominees thing again this year...seems overkill.

    I think the Conversation is the better of the three. and I love them all.....
