The Bicentennial Production Design - Can we just give a standing ovation to the 1976 Academy for giving the award to a contemporary movie? They had a Western, a period drama about the theatre...

The King's Speech: What happens when an impenetrable force hits an unmovable object? COLIN FIRTH OSCAR SEXY TIME! So cool, you can set your old school calculator watch by it and still walk away a winner.
Rabbit Hole: There should be an award for making it through more than so many soap opera style depressing movies in a year.We could all it: the MOPEY. Get it presented by Vanessa Marcil and you have yourself a winner. For the record, I hope to never win this fictional award I've created. Would feel so... downtrodden.
Somewhere: Over the rainbow where everything is kind of, you know, just so... like, ugh, yah know? I mean, really. It's just so, ugh, yah know? Gosh. Sorry Sofia Coppola, I bought the "it's lonely being rich" line a long time before you even thought of directing, and I don't need it sold to me again. I'm quite happy with what I bought.
The Way Back: Finally! Your chance to see a movie nobody else bothered seeing because they're lame, and you're awesome! Also, I love Peter Weir, even if this movie does struggle more than it should have. So what are you waiting for? Go now!
Gulliver's Travels: As far away from me as possible. Sorry Emily, it's not you... it's this movie. We're just going in different directions. You've lined up a lot of trivial roles in dribble films, and I'm thinking Carry Mulligan's stealing your spot among the Beautiful British Power Squad. Look on the bright side, we'll always have Young Victoria.
Other Releases: Ip Man 2 (Ip harder?) and If God is Willing and da Creek Don't Rise (whatever the hell that means)
Kes(Criterion): I've been waiting a long time to see this, so you can consider me jumping and ready to go.
Ingrid Bergman 3 Film Collection: I usually ignore nonsensical side collections, but after all.. this is Ingrid Bergman we're talking about! There is never anything nonsensical when it comes to here.
Sweetie(Criterion): Because Jane Campion and Criterion can't both do bad, can they? If so, I shall be a sorrowful man come credit time.
Well, there you have it ladies and gents. Happy hunting!
