Thursday morning was a wonderful and terrible morning for Hollywood. Some filmmakers got the once-in-a-lifetime thrill of hearing their names called as Oscar nominees (or, if you're Meryl Streep, 19-times-in-a-lifetime). Others were left empty-handed.

If I were going to make a 10-best list, it would probably include films like Boyhood, The Imitation Game and Selma, among others that will be on everyone's list. But, as good as those films are, none of them are on my list of favorites.

I remain, a week following the experience of Whiplash (the picture can't just be watched), flummoxed. Awash in critical praise, Whiplash has definitely hit a chord with many people, but I ask what the director, Damien Chazelle, was actually going for in his "masterwork."

We're wired to feel a vicarious thrill as we watch a young protagonist become the hero he was meant to be. Whiplash hacks into this quirk of brain chemistry and gets you rooting for all the wrong things.

"About a Boy," despite its missteps, is the only one of the three shows with real potential. The cast is very good and if the central relationships are beefed up, it could be a keeper.

Jonathan Kim

Jobs got hammered by critics and has performed poorly at the box office. However, I'm guessing a lot of those critics aren't like me -- someone who grew up on Apple computers, devoured Walt Isaacson's biography, and has followed the company's every move for years.

Marshall Fine

There's nothing that terrible about Joshua Michael Stern's JOBS, a skimpy, often overly specific film biography about the late Apple inventor, Steve Jobs. Still, it would be interesting to see this film with another actor playing Jobs.

It takes some kind of actor to take the role of a Nazi sadist and make it more than just a broad caricature. And it's no mean feat to then become the flesh-and-blood incarnation of one of comics' most notorious egotists and turn him into a person you might consider hanging out with.
