I need to get out more. The only one I have actually seen is Mad Max.

For those who have seen Room, this article might be interesting: 'Room' is the 'Crash' of Feminism

I wonder if it will do equally well at the Oscars?

If Room is the Crash of this year's nominees, The Revenant would be this year's Brokeback Mountain. In other words everyone thought The Revenant would win.

I think
1. Room
2. Mad Max
3. The Martian

Although they were all great movies and I keep switching Room and Mad Max. That's all I've seen.

I'm not sure who would call Room a particularly feminist movie? I mean it had a female writer and actress and wasn't unfeminist but I wouldn't call it feminist. I disagree with that article from watching the movie at least. The breastfeeding scene for example was sweet and a bit sad but didn't make me feel like it wanted to judge her. I thought it was a very compassionate movie. I can't speak for the book though.

Edit because I just saw the revenant. I rate it 4. Both my husband and me are sitting here going wtf was that. Was that much violence needed?
