The Martian received 7 nominations, including Best Picture, Visual Effects, and more! Star Wars: The Force Awakens received 5 nominations, including Visual Effects, Sound Editing, and more. I think that The Martian deserves to win Best Picture, as it was an entertaining, funny, and thrilling sci-fi movie. For Visual Effects, I think that Star Wars: The Force Awakens should win, for it had amazing special effects, shown a lot through large-scale space battles. Finally, I believe that Inside Out should win Animated Feature Film because it was a funny, touching film, one of the best animated movies of the year.

Mission: Impossible – Rouge Nation Movie Review

What’s it about?                                                                                                                                    The newest Mission: Impossible movie, and probably the best. Ethan Hunt and the IMF, or Impossible Mission Force, for those who don’t know, take on the Syndicate, a secret organization bent on destroying the IMF. This spectacular movie is enjoyable for those new to the franchise and those familiar with it.

How is it? 5/5                                                                                                                                        Amazing. Rouge Nation has awesome action sequences, humor sprinkled throughout the movie that will have you laughing, and truly impossible stunts.

How is the action and humor? 5/5                                                                                              The action in Rouge Nation is excellent. For example, the initial sequence in which Tom Cruise hangs on the side of an airplane is marvelous. Also, much of the humor comes from Benji, a member of Ethan’s team, and William Brandt, played by Jeremy Renner, who many know as Hawkeye in The Avengers.

In conclusion, Mission: Impossible – Rouge Nation is an excellent movie.

Movie Review- Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015)

What is it about?                                                                                                                                       The seventh movie in the Star Wars saga. 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi, a new galactic threat has risen: the First Order. Luke Skywalker has disappeared, and the only clue to finding Skywalker is in a droid who befriends Rey, a scavenger on the planet Jakku. She meets Finn, a stormtrooper that escaped the First Order. They must team up with Han Solo and the Resistance to make sure that the information does not get to the First Order. To watch and fully enjoy The Force Awakens, it is better to have seen the previous Star Wars films. However, if you have not seen them, then this article will provide you with everything you need to know before watching The Force Awakens.

How is it? 5/5                                                                                                                                                   Awesome. Star Wars: The Force Awakens is an amazing movie, possibly one of the best of 2015. It has action, humor, and outstanding special effects. Even if you have not seen the original Star Wars movies, you can still enjoy The Force Awakens.       

How is the action, humor, and special effects? 5/5                                                                       The Force Awakens is filled with a blend of humor, spectacular intergalactic action, and fantastic special effects that will give you an entertaining 2 hours and 16 minutes. Much of the humor comes from BB-8, a droid shaped like a soccer ball that contains the map to Luke Skywalker. However, Finn, the former stormtrooper, is also very funny along with Han Solo, who fans will know as the famous pilot of the Millenium Falcon, and C-3PO, the golden, talkative droid. However, some of the jokes and references are from the past  Star Wars movies, and newcomers to the franchise may not understand them. The action in The Force Awakens is awesome. The lightsaber duels between Kylo Ren, the main villain, and Finn and Rey are wonderful, along with some of the larger scale battles between ships of the Resistance and the First Order. Finally, the special effects are amazing. The previously-mentioned fights between Resistance and First Order ships contain many of these eye-popping visual effects.

Overall, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a great movie.
