Während die Blockbuster toben blüht das Genre-Kino. Neben dem /slash-einhalb gibt es aber noch ganz große News, denn endlich haben wir einen Trailer zu Stephen Kings Der Dunkle Turm.
Christopher Nolan (Inception, The Dark Knight) bringt uns einen neuen Science Fiction Blockbuster, in dem Cooper (Matthew McConnaughey) und ein Team von Astronauten sich durch ein Wurmloch in eine neue Galaxie begeben, um ein neues Zuhause für die menschliche Spezies zu finden.
Such a fantastic race! Tonight was the night the first Science Fiction movie won Best Director while 12 Years a Slave still got some great recognition by winning Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress (Lupita Nyong’o). The race (aside from some questionable choices in Documentary and Foreign Language Film but that always happens in those categories) was just a joy to watch with Gravity getting more recongition that I could have ever hoped for back when I watched Cuarón’s masterpiece for the first time.
Dallas Buyers Club scored big with three wins for Make Up, Jared Leto and Matthew McConaughey.
The big surprise winner is Spike Jonze for original screenplay (Her) and American Hustle turned out to be the big loser with 0/10.

Director Steve McQueen’s third movie 12 Years a Slave is based on the autobiography by Solomon Northup (portrayed by Chiwetel Ejiofor). A free black man from New York in 1841 who got abducted by two men who pretending to hire him as a violinist. Very quickly Solomon – now referred to as Platt – gets sold to a slaveowner (Benedict Cumberbatch) and is facing the harsh reality of working as a slave.
Riding on a lot of Oscar buzz 12 Years a Slave had me after a few minutes and after the movie was over I had this rare moment when I realized that I actually really love both frontrunners for best picture at the Oscars (Gravity being the other contender).
The Wolf of Wall Street is based on the memoir of Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) who founded the brokerage firm Stratton Oakmont and committed quite a handful of frauds. Directed by Martin Scorsese (Hugo) the movie chronicle’s Belfort’s descent into a world of crime, drugs and devastation.
And despite some mixed reviews and a lot of controversy surrounding its release I found myself enjoying the movie quite a lot – although enjoying might be the wrong phrase to use when we are talking about a 3 hour story about horrible people doing horrible things.
