FILM

Excellency In Film Of 2016

Moonlight
La La Land
Arrival
Manchester By The Sea
Captain America: Civil War

And The A.G.E. Goes To...




Moonlight

In my wildest imaginations, I always thought Films are just motion pictures, just there to led our emotions to it's liking. Inspire us. Transform us. With Moonlight, neither it only did redefines the nature of LGBT the way that Ang Lee did in his oscar winning flick, Brokeback Mountain, NOR change the way it inspires the black community in film history the way John Singleton did with his legendary black cinema epic, Boyz in the Hood but it finally pushes the boundaries of forbidden cinema ideas. From start to finish, the performances, the writing and directing, it just means something for us and led us to question ourselves as human beings and challenges us for change. Beautifully progressing forward in film-making, Moonlight is one of the most powerful entities that has ever been orchestrated on the silver screen. Barry Jenkins, Thank you. I really mean it.

Excellency In Film-Making Of 2016

Barry Jenkins - Moonlight
Clint Eastwood - Sully
Denis Villeneuve - Arrival
Kenneth Lonergan - Manchester By The Sea
Denzel Washington - Fences

And The A.G.E. Goes To...




Barry Jenkins - Moonlight

Barry's film-making is just far too perfect to call it just perfect. Maybe I'll just call it a masterpiece. With so much depth in color and detail, He guides the actors and actress like modern art, which his film really is. You cannot deny the fact that Mr Jenkins' Moonlight is so packed with raw sadness, lust and pain, you thought to yourself, "Is this where we're going with film-making?" Yes, it's got a term; Pushing forward.

And The A.G.E. Goes To...




Casey Affleck - Manchester By The Sea

The Affleck Dynasty is rocking it right now. From his brother's rightly deserved oscar win for his screenplay with Matt 20 year plus ago to Casey's artful performance as a broken man who's trying to build the world he once lost. He, like Mr DeCaprio, has pushed himself into beyond the laws of acting to well...act. but with a HELL of a lot more OMPH! It was the performance that made the film so remarkable, we have to recommend you to see it when you can, which cinema you're going.

Emma Stone - La La Land
Natalie Portman - Jackie
Ruth Negga - Loving

Emma Stone - La La Land

Cast it in Stone: Emma is a real star. Her performance was unlike her role in Birdman. It was rightly graced to a flaw, excelling and most importantly, masterclass. She made the film into a broadway with ease with her singing performances and I'm not gonna spoil you but...Keep going till the 2/3 of the film, it'll give you the reason why I gave her this prestigious award. Dream on, Emma Stone!

Overwatch (Dev&Publ: Blizzard Entertainment)

If there is one incredibly talented group of people who can thrives on exceeding expectations, no matter what IP it is, it's Blizzard Entertainment and same philosophy is said with their new absolute beast of a online multiplayer shoot-em-up, Overwatch. With it's progressing yet approachable play ability, fantastic visuals and animations, incredible stages each with it's own flavor of depth and variety, everlasting content support and beyond to keep the game's heart beating as loud as Winston's chest pounding (Had to do that) and it's wide range of colourful, balanced characters, each with their own distinct, unique style and personality, Overwatch not only a game as proof of Blizzard's remarkable genius but it also of great FPS Multiplayer mastery that has almost NEVER happened since Golden Eye 64 and, YES, Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare.

If that is not called one of the greatest comebacks in gaming industry, I don't know what is! Square Enix has had one hell of a year, with their publishing of big blockbusters such as Hitman & Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and their own with World Of Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest & Star Ocean received acclaim, ranging from positive to critical, it would seem that Square's gambles have paid off really well but there is one big gamble that gave us the reason to award them best developer; Final Fantasy XV, with an excellent combat, giant open world with loads of things to see and do, likeable cast of characters, and respect to the historic final fantasy name, it is big gamble that payed off quite glorious.
