La la land I don't know but Hollywood do love a selfie film.

As for Manchester by the sea, you must have watched a different film! Casey's acting was epic! Such a sad story, highly recommended from me at least!

So everyone says guess I may have to watch it again X)

I've only watched three of the best picture nominees: Arrival, La La Land and Hacksaw Ridge.

Arrival was pretty good, and so was Hacksaw Ridge, but I found lala land to be a bit boring, but then again I'm not too fond of musicals. My OH dragged me to see it. It'll probably win the Oscar though.

Had another go at Manchester by the sea

Silence was pretty good far to much 'pain pron' could have been much shorter

*Don't make me correct you.

Silence was okay but as you say far too long. Not really a winner for me though.
I thought Hacksaw Ridge was really good. Surprised that Mel is still managing to find work.

Oh and I liked Arrival as well.
Hail, Caesar! was a strange tale and not really as funny as it should have been given the talent involved (if that makes sense). Overrated I would say.

I watched hidden figures earlier i really hope it gets acknowledged

My kids like the look of Arrival when the trailer was on before Dr Strange, is it any good for teens?

Arrival is not an action film like Dr Strange, more a serious take on alien visitors, a serious drama, I found it great, but I really like Amy!

Now fences looks a bleak affair.... probably great performances but a grim tale of woulda, coulda, shoulda, but not allowed.

Hacksaw ridge, way better than I think it would be!

There may be a lot of truth in what you wrote, Oscar is an establishment thing, right now, around the world, the establishments have been caught out for not delivering to the populace,

Yeah definitely my film of the year, from the ones I've seen.
The thing is though, do we really want to give Mel Gibson any reason to go out and "celebrate"?! oO
