    Chicago was the gayest thing since Tom Cruise.

    the closest thing ive watched to a musical is tangled.. and im not gonna lie, i enjoyed tangled.

    i watched Moon today, and it was amazing. hadn't hear much about it.... but i should have.. Sam Rockwell is a pimp. and Clint Mansell did the score.. made it that much better.

    Moon is indeed pretty good. I saw it in theater with a bunch of people who hated it. It was odd because I really liked it. I love Sam Rockwell too.

    I dunno how you couldn't like that movie. Fresh enough story, superb acting, perfect musical score. I honestly don't really have a complaint for what it was. Maybe they could have held off on revealing the full story for a while longer to keep you guessing..

    I'm sure there just weren't enough explosions for some people :p

    Best movie I've seen in a while anyway!

    Yeah Moon was excellent and an indie film I could actually get behind. I do wish they played off of the whole "is it his psyche or is he a clone" a bit more but other than that, a great five star film.

    Moon was great, I'm glad they revealed the truth early on because it would've been too predictable to leave it up to a twist ending IMO.

    Well that's fine for you not to care, but I think you're being naí¯ve. How would you have them allocate their earnings?

    The court jester has always been high, and I would not weep for some of my educators if they were thrown under the bus.


    My Predictions for Best...
    Picture - The King's Speech (although I anticipate punching someone when The Social Network takes it)
    Director - Darren Aronofsky (for the kickass name)
    Actress - ? (I haven't been interested in this category for some time)
    Actor - Colin Firth (that guy)
    Supporting Actress - Helena Bonham Carter (because I have a deep passion for her)
    Supporting Actor - ? (not for disinterest, but for not even)
    Foreign Language Film - I haven't seen them all, but people are all over Biutiful. I liked Incendies.
    Editing - Black Swan
    Documentary Feature - Exit Through the Gift Shop
    Animated Feature Film - ? (didn't see 'em -- missed out)
    Visual Effects - Harry Potter etc. (...what!?)
    Original Song - We Belong Together (I don't really like any of them, but)
    Original Score - The Social Network
    Cinematography - Black Swan
    [Skipping a whole bunch of categories]
    Short Film (Animated) - THE LOST THING :D

    While Reznor is great and all...That sound track doesn't even come close to either Inception or HtTYD OSTs

    I disagree. Overrated is Lady Gaga or Lil Wayne.

    Well, the one that that is not overrated is my opinion, that's for sure.

    I'm a healer. I'll help you get through these tough times.

    For the record, I overrate everyone. That includes YOU.

    Looks like Sightless and Longo called it. The King's Speech won best picture, best director, best screenplay and best actor.


    .....what a load of crap. I mean it's not a bad movie, but it doesn't derserve to win in ALL of those categories. And I'm not a raging Inception fanboy, out of the 10 movies nominated for best picture, I would've been happy with 6 of those winning... The King's Speech falls into the other 4.

    The only winners I actually agree with are...
    - Natalie Portman for best actress
    - Christian Bale for best supporting actor
    - Toy Story 3 for best animated film
    - Trent Reznor for best score
    - The Social Network for best adapted screenplay
    - and Inception's awards for cinematography, sound and visual effects

    So I'm kinda happy but felt other movies deserved the bigger awards.
