Three of the biggest films of the year hit theaters this weekend. In limited release, “Birdman” and “Whiplash” hit the coasts while David Ayer’s “Fury” opens in theaters everywhere. All three have cast a spell in some way on critics, and are performing very well. There are some sure fire bets for Oscar consideration when talking about each one.
Let’s see what some of the audiences on the Twitter-sphere thinks. Include your thoughts on any of the films you saw in the comment section.
The technical filmmaking aspects of FURY were impressive yet the movie felt empty and cold. I'm not sure about its awards potential though.

After watching Fury I'm convinced I was born after my time. Man. Those guys had it right.

Saw Fury last night. Best WWII movie yet! So well done it was a lil too real. New respect for mech. Brad Pitt shouldve been a Recon Marine.

only thing good about #fury was sound and uniforms. Mindless, childless, hypocritical, and utterly meritless one of the worst WWII films.

So BIRDMAN is nerve-wracking, painful, intense, unrelenting. And also easily the funniest movie of the year. The slapstick is mind-boggling.

If asked to pick between re-watching a movie skewering Hollywood's misguided ego, it would be a touch call between BIRDMAN & 22 JUMP STREET.
