Screen Talk: What’s Wrong with ‘Exodus’ and Right with ‘Unbroken’

Screen Talk: What's Wrong with 'Exodus' and Right with 'Unbroken'

So what’s the verdict? In short, we were both disappointed by Ridley Scott’s paint-by-numbers biblical epic "Exodus: Gods and Kings," and hail the rise of director Angelina Jolie, who delivers with "Unbroken" and rising star Jack O’Connell. Could her cinematographer, frequent Coens collaborator Roger Deakins, finally land the Big O after 11 nominations? After all, "Birdman" D.P. Emmanuel Lubezki won last year for "Gravity." 

We also dig into some other categories and races as well as the Sundance lineup so far and recommend what you should watch this weekend.
