Selma Review: Gripping, Powerful Submission to the Oscar Run

Selma represents the first contender for Oscar glory. Review by Matt Cummings Although 2015 has arrived, we're still dealing with the last-minute submissions for the 2014 Oscar season, an issue based mainly on the lack of nationwide releases for a select few. This isn't anything new: Zero Dark Thirty premiered released during the 2011 Oscar season but didn't make it way into wide release until the middle of January 2012. The same goes for Selma , the powerful, gripping tale of Martin Luther King, Jr's struggles to bring voting rights to African Americans. Documenting the struggles of Martin Luther King, Jr. (David Oyelowo) and his movement try to re-establish voting rights for African Americans, a tense and prejudice United States of 1964 is centered in the city of Selma, Alabama. Here, a march is planned to the state's capital of Montgomery, location of Governor George Wallace (Tim Roth) and his racist policies that have made it nearly impossible

LEE DANIES’ THE BUTLER Review. Important True Story

Lee Daniels' THE BUTLER Review By: RAMA Want to thank RAMA for giving us this review. Please make sure to LIKE his Facebook page and follow him on Twitter . LEE DANIELS’ THE BUTLER has Oscars written all over it.. and by that I mean for production design, makeup, costume, everything that has to do with making this movie looks and feels like the eras that the lead character Cecil Gaines ( Whitaker ) goes through. Whitaker himself is remarkable, sadly everybody else, or should I say every other famous faces in this movie, including Oprah Winfrey’s comeback to acting, are just along for the ride, only one or two or three of them would bear significance while the rest have little to no impact whatsoever. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great true story, just knowing that there is someone who served as a butler to eight U.S. presidents, doing that same job all those years, it’s impressive, worth admiring indeed, it’s an important story, nobody doubts that, but maybe the mov
