Review: Vice

Review: Vice

“Fuck Gary Oldman!”

It’s Oscars season and we’re reviewing the Academy’s big category picks. ‘Vice’ (starring Christian Bale) is directed by Adam McKay and has nominations for Best Picture, Best Actor (Bale), Best Supporting Actor (Sam Rockwell), Best Supporting Actress (Amy Adams), Best Director, Best Original Screenplay and more.

The synopsis:

Governor George W. Bush of Texas picks Dick Cheney, the CEO of Halliburton Co, to be his Republican running mate in the 2000 presidential election. No stranger to politics, Cheney’s impressive résumé includes stints as White House chief of staff, House Minority Whip and defence secretary. When Bush wins by a narrow margin, Cheney begins to use his newfound power to help reshape the country and the world.

We put the movie through our critically acclaimed rating system, which grades based on four categories:

1. Did we like it?

2. How did everyone look?

3. Will we steal stuff from it?

4. Is it problematic?
