I don't know why I haven't seen this yet as I enjoy Miles Teller quite a bit. I've been hearing nothing but good things about it. Damien Chazelle is definitely an example of making hit or misses. Seeing as he directed this, but wrote the horrible sequel to The Last Exorcism. The acting here is pretty amazing. J.K. Simmons is one of the most intense instructors I have ever seen portrayed on screen.... read more

Poor Miles Teller, he’s so damn good in Whiplash that it almost feels cruel how completely stolen the movie is from him. Telling the story of a quiet student who dreams of becoming one of the world’s premiere drummers, Whiplash offers up a juicy supporting role to a great character actor. And you can figure out why I say that the movie is completely stolen out from underneath him.

Since I kept hearing some really good things about this flick, I was really eager to check it out. Well, I wasn't disappointed, that's for sure. In my opinion, it is basically some kind of dark version of 'Fame' mixed with a nail-biting thriller. Still, even though J.K. Simmons was really amazing, giving the best performance of his career, they went really far with this character. I mean, the guy ... read more

Description: A talented young jazz drummer experiences a trial by fire when he's recruited by a ferocious instructor whose unyielding search for perfection may lead to his undoing. For as far back as Andrew Neyman (Miles Teller) can remember, he's been watching his father fail. Determined to make a name for himself no matter what it takes, Andrew enrolls in a prestigious east coast music conservatory where his talent quickly catches the attention of Terence Fletcher (J.K. Simmons) a esteemed music teacher who's notorious for his caustic approach in the classroom. The leader of the school's top jazz ensemble, Fletcher promptly transfers Neyma ... (more)

Best Picture Nominees - Worst to Best | 2015 Oscar (7 movies items)

"Miles Teller does an excellent job in this film, but his performance is completely overshadowed by J.K. Simmons, whom delivers the performance of a life time in Whiplash. Rarely have an Academy Award been more deserved than the one he got for this film. I did not really care for the characters in the film. They were all unlikeable as characters, and not someone who deserved my sympathy. That was most likely the point, but I would have liked to have someone that I could emotionally resonate more "

"Whiplash was one of my last year's Top 5 movies. The story is simple but strong and the performances were great. J.K Simmons portrayal of cruel and harsh music teacher is pure genius. It's one of the few performances in film history that i can watch till the end of days without getting bored. He surely deserved he's Oscar from this."
