I had the chance to watch some of the Oscar-nominated films mentioned above. And I could say that they were good, at least to my own standard. Well, I don't claim to be a film critic, but I believe that everyone who spend his money to watch a movie has every right to provide his view of how the film goes. Here's my take on the following films:

Life of Pi


Overall, Life of Pi is a good film. The flow of story plain without much surprise but it's not confusing either. It's just right to complement the entire film. The story is not similar to what I have watched before. With that, Life of Pi brings something new to my plate.

Here's a summary of what I like and not in Life of Pi.

What I like:
- the story is unique
- the special effects are great

What I don't like:
- it does not have the "moving" effect. It didn't leave me thinking about it.
- the story, though unique, is not appealing to me



Les Miserables


Les Miserables is a great film for everyone who thinks about life. It shows the realities of life such as: there are things that, no matter how simple they were, cannot be achieved in this world.
Also, the way the lead actors did their roles were amazing also. During the course of the movie, I almost forgot that Fantine is Anne Hathaway and Jean is Hugh Jackman.

Here's a summary of what I like and not in Les Miserables.

What I like:
- the story was epic
- Anne's portrayal of Fantine is fantastic
- The films cinematography

What I don't like:
- Les Miserables as a musical
- Russel Crowe singing


Lincoln


At the start of the movie, I thought that it would be boring. But I was wrong. It was a thrilling movie even without action-packed scenes. Also, Lincoln has its own unique flavor of humor. And the fact that the story of the film actually happened (although it may not be so accurate) triggers my interest.

So, here are the things that I like and not about the Lincoln:

What I like:
- Abraham Lincoln's story has always been interesting to me
- the actor that portrayed Abraham Lincoln - Daniel Day- Lewis - did a great job
- the thrill
- the moral lessons especially about equality of humans
- the film made me reflect about my personal stand about racial discrimination

What I don't like:
- I don't understand all the conversations, especially some of the humorous parts

I plan to watch other Oscar-nominated films such as Brave, Argo, Django Unchained, and Skyfall.
