The hollywood academy has wanted to recognize ‘Avatar: The Sense of Water’ with four Oscar nominations, including one in the category of best film of the year. The first installment already did the same to see how the precious statuette finally went to ‘The Hurt Locker’ and it is unlikely that this successful sequel will manage to win the prize. Of course, I am quite clear that shouldn’t even have gotten the nomination.
Surely almost everyone can think of several titles that they would have nominated instead of the film directed by James Cameron, since last year’s film harvest was very good. For my part I have decided to choose 12 Movies I Think Deserved Oscar Nominations More Than ‘Avatar: The Water Sense’.
In addition, for your selection I have chosen include only films that have received at least one nomination in this edition of the Oscars, so it is clear that at least one sector of the Academy has recognized its values in other categories. In addition, to reinforce my choices I have included fragments of the criticisms that other colleagues or myself have made of the film in question to better understand the reasons that would have justified their choice. Without more to add, I leave you with them:
The 12 alternatives to ‘Avatar 2’
- ‘Aftersun’ why “decides to treat the viewer as an intelligent entity capable of appreciating the details, the future, the cards, crying alone so that the person you love the most does not see you broken inside” (full review here)
- ‘Argentine, 1985’ why “is capable of combining a sense of humor with the most absolute tragedy, recalling real events that are more illogical than any fiction” (full review here)
- ‘Babylon’ because it is “It is a fascinating, exciting and wild work” (full review here)
- ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ because it is “an adventure with a worked dramatic background that also, despite the fact that not everything is equally inspired, also works as a great show” (full review here)
- ‘blonde’ because it is “a one of a kind movie” (full review here)
- ‘Close’ because it is “one of the most sentimental works of the year, which succeeds in all its decisions on a formal and artistic level” (full review here)
- ‘The whale’ for “demonstrate once again that theatricality in the cinema can be translated into truly wonderful experiences” (full review here)
- ‘Pinocchio by Guillermo del Toro’ because it is “an explosion of creativity and imagination, probably the most sincere and emotional work of Guillermo del Toro” (full review here)
- ‘Knives in the Back: The Mystery of the Glass Onion’ because it is “an excellent extension of what already worked so well in its predecessor. In addition, it does so knowing how to differentiate itself and making it clear that this franchise is called to give us much joy.” (full review here)
- ‘Grid’ because it is “a highly inspired work that proposes something different and at the same time recovers the funniest side of the studio” (full review here)
- ‘rrr’ because it is “a perfect combination of elements, an epic story that tells with verve and without fail for three hours, and also one of the most exciting friendship stories” (full review here)
