The FilmFanMan's 2013 Oscar Predictions

UPDATE: I predicted 21 of the 24 categories correct this year. That's actually the best I've done in several years. Overall, the show was actually pretty good. Seth MacFarlane was a good host, and the "Les Miserables" cast and Adele gave my favorite performances of the night. There was also a tie for Sound Editing. So that made the show interesting. What's even more funny is Ted and Mark Wahlberg presented that category. In my opinion, Ted and Seth MacFarlane were the funniest people at the show. (And there the same person.)

My Review of Warm Bodies

The movie "Warm Bodies" is based on a Young Adult novel by the same name, which I haven't read. However, when I saw the first trailer for "Warm Bodies" I was very intrigued because it looked so original. After seeing the film, I can say that "Warm Bodies" was actually a decent movie for being released in February.

"Warm Bodies" follows R (Nicholas Hoult), a very unusual zombie, who saves a human, Julie (Teresa Palmer), from an attack, the two form a relationship that sets in motion a sequence of events that might transform the entire lifeless world. As you can probably tell from the plot the story is very similar to "Romeo and Juliet" and when your watching the movie you will definitely notice some scenes similar to "Romeo and Juliet". With that, the story will most likely keep you entertained all the way through. Mainly because of the really clever dialogue and also because a movie like this hasn't been done before and that just makes it interesting, entertaining, and FUN.

The performances in the movie were pretty good. Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer both did a good job playing R and Julie. John Malkovich was also in the film playing Julie's dad. He gave a good performance but should have been in the movie more then he was. Rob Corddry and Dave Franco are also in the movie, and I must say Rob Corddry has LOTS of scene stealer's.
