I love movies. I love writing about them. Hope you like reading what I write.

Jared Leto in “Dallas Buyers Club”.

The guy from “Sahara” got an Oscar this year rather than Leonardo Dicaprio?

The reasons behind the Academy not giving more than a nod to luscious Leo is a discussion for another day, but in the meantime all I can say is that Matthew McConaughey gives a truly brilliant performance here as true-life AIDS sufferer Ron Woodroof.

Despite its heavy subject matter, this movie is not a straightforward tear-jerker. It is actually quite a surprisingly light-hearted con-movie at times and that just makes the situation strangely feel more real to the audience.

Give credit where its due to Jared Leto as well, playing a fellow AIDS patient and transgender who gives an even better performance than McConaughey. He’ll make an excellent Joker.
