It was definitely a disappointment. Especially because I love Zombie’s remake of Halloween. However, the opening 20 minutes of Halloween 2 (theatrical cut only people, the director’s cut was an abomination) was extremely intense. It went downhill slowly. I appreciate the carnage of some of the death scenes but Halloween 2 is quite possibly Zombie’s worst film.
I agree that the award isn’t based on the character. But I thought Matthew’s performance was much more memorable than Leo Dicaprio. Honestly, I don’t want to receive hate from all the fans but I think Leo is slightly overrated. And I also found that the only reason Wolf of Wall Street got any nominations was because it was directed by Martin Scorsese. I was moved by Matthew’s performance. I was not that impressed by Leo’s. If he was going to be given an Oscar, it should have been for his superior performances in previous films. Not this one. But I do agree that I should’t have put such a strong emphasis on the qualities of the character.
Bullshitttt. Just think about, which role is more important / award worthy in the grand scheme of things? Specifically when it comes to social context that impacts our lives. I guess going through a physical transformation to play an important role that is dedicated to all the lives lost through aids is inferior to Leo playing a drug abusing, misogynistic creep!
