Michael's Book Babble

I'm an indie author and a scribbler of inane babble. I talk about books I've read/liked. Or at least, that's the plan.

 

Most of the reviews will be considered "mini-reviews." Usually, it's mostly my reaction to what I've been reading. There are people who are far better at doing full and helpful reviews. But I still have fun doing them, and hope you enjoy them!

Random Oscar Babble 2/23/15

I am really, really happy that Birdman won Best Picture. True, I didn't see every film that was nominated, but I loved the hell out of that flick. I've already seen it twice and am ready to watch it again.

 

Bummed that Keaton didn't win Best Actor, although I can't say he was robbed. I didn't see The Theory of Everything, but from the trailers and whatnot it looks like Redmayne did an amazing job. That was a tough, tough category. I was still rooting for Keaton, though.

 

And I'm totally seeing Whiplash this week. Already ordered it on Amazon Instant Video, and it'll be available to stream tomorrow. I can't wait.

 

And Neil Patrick Harris' Birdman skit was brilliant.
