Oscar-nominated Movies Recommended by Alif

Movies that I absolutely loved this year
  1. 1.
    The Big Short
    This movie is incredible but deals with complex subject matter. Brilliant portrayal of an important issue that affects all of us. Margot Robbie in a bathtub explaining mortgage-backed securities doesn't hurt 😍
  2. 2.
    Hateful 8
    Tarantino is a genius, as always. Think of it like Pulp Fiction and Django Unchained combined. 3 hours is a tad too long though 👌🏾
  3. 3.
    Steve Jobs
    Aaron Sorkin (of the Social Network) breaks up Steve Jobs' life in a creative way and Fassbender is fantastic in this role!
  4. 4.
    Bridge of Spies
    Deals with a lot of intriguing political and legal issues of the Cold War-era, but is a feel-good Tom Hanks film at the end of the day.
  5. 5.
    The Martian
    Sci-fi, inspirational flick - Matt Damon is stellar as always and the desolate environments are incredible
  6. 6.
    The Revenant
    Haven't seen this one quite yet, but I'm sure Leo has a good chance of (finally) winning his Oscar
