Barack Obama might be the worst person in the world according to your 85-year-old Grandfather from South Florida. I’m not here to change your mind on Obama’s record as president; however, I will defend his wonderful taste in the arts.
Not only does Obama listen to some great music, but we know from last year that he also enjoys watching fantastic movies. If you remember our post from December 2014, Obama revealed his favorite film of the year was Richard Linklater’s coming-of-age story, Boyhood. It was also my favorite film of 2014, which means the Prez and I would obviously make great best friends.
Sadly, we didn’t match this year. Obama’s favorite film of 2015 was The Martian, which was an incredible movie, but I don’t believe it was the best. At least this pick proves Obama’s tastes are varied, because Boyhood and The Martian are two completely different movies.
What did Michelle Obama pick as her favorite film? Pixar’s Inside Out. It scored a 98% on Rotten Tomatoes, and it’s currently the favorite to take home the Golden Globe Award for Best Animated Feature. The Obama family should start a movie review site after this whole president thing is over.
