We saw American Sniper yesterday and it's awesome, intense, and kind of surreal.
There was complete silence leaving the theater which was really eerie.
We also saw Boyhood. It's incredibly long. The fact that it was filmed over a 12 year period is it's only redeeming quality in my opinion.
Next up on my must see list pre-Oscars are Birdman, Wild, Foxcatcher, The Theory of Everything, and
The Imitation Game.
