The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences just announced that late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel will be back to present the Oscars for the second year in a row. I truly love Jimmy Kimmel, I really do, but I feel forced to share my very unpopular opinion with the world: I think this is a huge mistake and I simply can’t understand this decision. These are my reasons (personal AND factual).
As a self-proclaimed serious cinephile, I do not usually enjoy contemporary crime-thriller films. I use the word “enjoy” because I believe not watching films of a certain genre is, in my opinion, like ignoring the cinema of a specific film industry. With this in mind I attended an advanced screening of The Adderall Diaries, a “crime-thriller” film directed by Pamela Romanowsky and starring James Franco, set to be released on April 15.
