    I agree, Despicable Me was good. Cute and funny for sure. as a friend said after the movie, "I want me some Minions!"

    The girlfriend and I watched Despicable Me a few weeks back and loved it. We have Megamind but haven't found time to watch it yet. I'm expecting good things.


    We watched Blue Valentine last night. It stars Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams (and her naked tatas), and is a very good film. It's pretty deep so if you're not looking for a nearly 2 hour drama/romance film, you might not look here. I wouldn't categorize it as a chick flick at all though. It deals with the very real side of relationships and how some people gradually fall out of love with one another.

    Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

    watched it with my brother and sister in law. I had heard that this movie was either a love it or hate it type of flick....my sister in law and i liked it while my brother was getting bored during the initial first half an hour in to the movie...but after a bit it picked up the pace and he stuck around - wont be his favorite movie but he enjoyed it for what it was in the end.

    Watched it a few weeks ago and liked it a lot. The cinematography in the fight scenes was awesome, especially the final scene.

    It looks like I should probably see 127 Hours.

    Also, does anyone else think they nominate too many movies for Best Picture? I feel like it should be capped at 5. That would make being nominated a bit of an accomplishment in and of itself.

    I know 'The Social Network' is really high on eveyrone's list I still have a problem with movies like this. I really hate the based on true events but let's take some real liberties to make it interesting approach. Stick to the facts please..... Kind of like Oliver Stone's JFK movie. I get irritated when the news media is quick to play with the facts and I do feel the same when Hollywood tries to present a movie as fact and believes a tag line somewhere explaining some things have been altered or changed.

    It is a two film race for best picture between the Kings Speech and Social Network.

    RWB regardless of how true The Social Network is I think it is a great movie, great writing, great acting.....highly entertaining

    Oh, I would agree, the acting is very good. Frankly, the performance by Justin Timberlake really took me by surprise. If I was rooting for someone to take home an Oscar my choice would be Annette Bening for an unbelievable job in the 'Kids'.

    Pleasantly surprised by the number of noms for Winter's Bone (as well as at least a little recognition for Animal Kingdom). Unlike last year, I have no complaints about the ten films that received nominations for Best Picture. I agree with UB that it's a two film race at this point - Social Network likely being the favorite though by considerably less after the Producers Guild gave it to The King's Speech.

    As far as surprises...

    • I'm surprised the Coen's received a nomination over Christopher Nolan. I know lots of people have wildly different opinions about him, but this is his third Directors Guild Nomination and he still has zero nominations from the Academy. A little odd, considering how high profile he is, that his peers think more highly of him than others.
    • Speaking of Inception, no idea how it didn't receive a nomination for editing. I can't think of another film this year that relied so much on a skillful editor than a film like Inception involving multiple worlds/levels of dreams and just the length of the film. It could have been a disaster.
    • Very surprised by Mark Ruffalo getting a nom. I generally enjoy him in just about everything but didn't think his performance in Kids are All Right was award worthy. I guess this could be a combination award for both KaAR and Shutter Island but not sure if that makes sense, either. As far as a possible replacement, off the top of my head I think Andrew Garfield in Social Network may have been more deserving. But good for Ruffalo, in any case.

    Hoping Jacki Weaver pulls out the Best Supporting actress win as I was disappointed to see Leo's one-note performance get the globe a couple of weeks ago. She wasn't even the best supporting actress in her film imo.

    And i'm glad to see Incendies get a nom for best foreign film.

    I don't know if it was really one-note as much as I think we've seen Melissa Leo play that role before (like her excellent performance in the almost great Frozen River). If she wins, it will likely be for her body of work.

    If you liked the other grindhouse movies like Planet Terror, you will love Machete. However, I was disappointed that the DVD I rented from Family Video did not have any extras. I at least expected some fake trailers.

    127 Hours - Really good. James Franco stars alongside Danny Boyle's superb direction. The very end is a little bit of a fart but I guess that's a test audience move. Comparing this to Buried is so off base because the two movies have such different goals, but on overall entertainment value, tough to beat this movie.

    The King's Speech - Didn't expect it to be so damn good; I can see why UB's pulling for it so hard. Expected more sentimentality and heart-string pulling, but I got good old fashioned storytelling & acting. Colin Firth is a lock as lead actor, obviously; still not better than Bale though. Lot of respect for this movie.

    That said, won't beat out The Social Network. Black Swan is still probably a tad better; Armond White might not be the only dude handing an award to Darren Aronofsky. I thought The Town would still be a contender, but the Academy seems to have put it in its reah-view.

    In their defense, the Best Director category kind of does that for them.

    I was surprised that Animal Kingdom wasn't nominated for best foreign film.
    Isn't the category Best Foreign Language Film? Like it has to be primarily non-English? Wouldn't The King's Speech count as a foreign film in that case?

    Here's what I would say are the top ten critics/judges will, at this point, choose: Social Network, Winter's Bone, 127 Hours, Toy Story 3, The King's Speech, Inception, True Grit, The Kids Are All Right, Black Swan, and Animal Kingdom in no particular order
    I know this is Naptown Sethy, but here is what I posted a couple of weeks ago. The Fighter has gained momentum because of the acting and direction. Animal Kingdom has just fallen by the wayside; no one has seen it. Nawt you, nawt you, and nawt you.

    Supporting actress is very interesting. Hailee Steinfeld had the best performance out of everyone there; problem is, it wasn't a supporting performance. I agree on not giving Inception an editing nod, especially while The King's Speech gets one. Balancing time and angles is not necessarily one of the movies strengths; guess it has to be in the Best Picture running though. Lastly, I'm pulling hard for Exit Through the Gift Shop. Best movie of the year in my opinion. Inside Job probably wins for its "timeliness," while timelessness will be ignored. Oh, the brainwashing.

    Just watched An Education for the first time. Great acting, well done movie. I realize it is set in 1961 and times were different. My God she is 16 - wow, I expected at least her parents to wise up at some point

    Forgot to mention that I did see The Green Hornet last weekend - it was better than I thought it was going to be. It was funny, fast moving pretty good movie
