Continuing to knock out the Oscar nominated films, Sharon and I watched Whiplash at the Century 14 Theaters on Saturday night.
The film stars Miles Teller as a student jazz drummer who wants to earn the respect of a fearsome teacher played by J. K. Simmons. It also stars Paul Reiser.
Walking out of the theater, Sharon said unlike The Grand Budapest Hotel "that was good." She and I were both pleasantly surprised. I honestly didn't know what to expect. I enjoyed the film and recommend it.
We have not seen all of the films yet, but I think that J.K. Simmons has a strong shot at the Oscar for best supporting actor.
After the movie we went to Kico's Mexican Restaurant on Arden.
