Complete list of this year's nominees:

Hugo leads the way with 11 nominations, followed closely by The Artist with 10 nominations.

I'll get the pool set up again this year; hopefully we have a good turn out.


Congrats to Indy for winning the 2nd Annual TDC Oscar Pool, predicting 20/24 categories correctly! Full standings below:

My 198th film this year, Villa Rides w/ Charles Bronson, Robert Mitchum and Yul Brynner was entertaining. A good war film. Funny in parts as well. Bronson playing against type as a psycho was great. My favourite part(s) of the film were his.

I love films. I've seen over 2200 and own over 400 DVDs.

I also can't wait for Public Enemies.

Here's some others I'm looking forward to:

A Perfect Getaway

You bastard, I was seriously just about to come in here and make a general movie thread. Anyway, just watched Bedazzled again for the first time in a while and forgot that Elizabeth Hurley is so smoking hot it's not even funny.

I've got to finish that. Harold Ramis is a great director.

I just watched the Last Castle for the first time the other night.

Spoiler:
I had seen a few parts of the of riot scenes a long time ago, and that was it. I thought the entire movie actually dragged on a bit and the ending was left wide open, which I don't like in movies. It was a good movie don't get me wrong, I just thought that it was weak in parts. The acting before the rioting was really only so-so, which I rarely say about movies I see. The plot was good, but not really executed well on screen I thought. I'm glad I only spent 2 bucks on this movie let's leave it at that.

That's the most interesting thing that I've learned in the last 8 months, and that's sad, because I'm being serious.

Top 5 - taking into account not only the craft of film but also my personal enjoyment (bad boys II):
Terminator 2: Judgment Day (will always be #1)
The Fugitive
Seven
Bad Boys 2
The Abyss

actually looking at that list, besides the abyss and maybe T2 those are all just based on personal enjoyment. the directors cut of the abyss is criminally underrated though.

it isn't smart, particularly well acted, or has a good story. but it's pure grade A entertainment of the highest caliber.
