We have now ended July. Ahead we have the summer films such as the Kingsman sequel which will will see as a family viewing. Then come the the traditional fall contenders for the big awards though a couple have shown up early.
I’ve seen Logan and already have the DVD. If it weren’t a super hero film, I would put it among the contenders. This is a heavy hitter year and while other awards are a possibility, Best Picture is unlikely.
Just saw Dunkirk on Sunday. It is a film of sound and fury with little connecting story line. If you know the history. You know what happened. Even if you don’t, you will feel the war. Not a traditional film, but a very good one. As a measure, I genuinely liked Hacksaw Ridge better on the Oscar front.
From here on are the unseen, but definitely worth consideration.
