The Oscars are on Television This Evening?

Last night I watched the first 77 minutes of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I needed a force just to keep me awake.

My biggest takeaway from what I've seen thus far of TFA: It feels like an elaborate fan film.

I've heard Roma is very good. Whether it wins the Best Picture or not is irrelevant to me. I get the impression it "thinks".

I just finished watching Roma. Was really touching but had an ethereal kinda quality. Like drifting through a dream.

I will take that as a recommendation.

Also, First Man won for best visual effects, beating out a couple of CGI-fests. Seems their old-school crisp model effects appealed to the Academy.
