Now that I have seen both Birdman and Imitation Game, I ask this simple question.
HOW ON EARTH DID BIRDMAN WIN BEST PICTURE!
No offense to Birdman, but the movie was on drugs. It was confusing and hard to keep up with what was really going on. I love Michael Keaton to death but I did not like Birdman at all. Compared to a story of a homosexual man during wartime solving an unbreakable Nazi code it was nothing compared to the Imitation Game.
I had never been so in awe with a movie after The Imitation Game. Coming from a computer oriented family where my Dad and Uncle are administrators on computers and everyone in our family is computer savvy, I had an attraction to this movie (Also Benedict Cumberbatch because I mean every movie is perfect with Benedict in it). I could also say that most 1940's WWII based movies also catch my attention as well. That's because I believe that every WWII story deserved to be told and to see it on the big screen 50 years after it had actually happened, 50 years after everyone who was apart of it was either dead or in the clear for everyone to learn about one of the first computers named Christopher that helped break the unbreakable Nazi code.
The acting was superb, the sets were amazing the music drew you into the movie, the costumes, everything fit into the time period and it lured you into the setting of the movie. At the end of Birdman I just sat in my seat asking myself "What in the hell did I just watch". At the end of The Imitation Game I said to myself, "Why have I never heard of this before its so cool!" I give this movie a 10/10.
