When I first heard about The Wolf of Wall Street, knowing nothing about Jordan Belfort, I thought it would be a serious drama. Then I saw the first trailer and realised that it was a comedy. Now that I've seen the film, I can confirm that it is one of the funniest films I've seen recently and is a completely insane experience that pulls you right into the world of Jordan Belfort and doesn't let you forget it.

So it's that time of year again when I give my thoughts on the major awards nominations. This year though, since I don't really have time to cover all of them and seeing how I've already missed the Golden Globes and Critics Choice Awards, I'm just going to cover the Oscars.

There have been very few films I've seen that have left me speechless. A film would have to really impress me and shock me in order for me to be left speechless. 12 Years A Slave is one of those film. This is an astonishing piece of filmmaking and a film that everyone needs to see as soon as possible.

Over the past few years the animated Disney films have seen a great return to form. The Princess and the Frog and Tangled got great reviews and Wreck It Ralph was a lot of fun. However, I was still unsure about Frozen. The trailers made it look like a boring, action-comedy film and I wasn't really sold. Then I started seeing the reviews saying that Frozen was one of the best animated films of the year and after seeing the film, the reviews are right. Frozen is one of the best animated films to come along in a long time.
