Sideways

Whoever thought that Sideways should be nominated for an Academy Award for best picture should have their head examined.

This isn't to say that it was a bad movie or that it didn't have a decent story and a good tale of redemption, but it's not the kind of movie that's going to win an award. Really, "In Good Company" showed as good of a story.

If I'd paid full price to see this movie, I would have been dissapointed. However, I only paid $4 so it was ok.

  

Million Dollar Baby

This isn't a review, it's a piece of instruction.

If you want to see the movie that will win the Academy Award, you need to see this movie. Go right now. If you need to be in class, or need to be working, it doesn't matter. Go to the theatre and demand that they show it to you.

  

Videos

I haven't stayed home to watch movies in a while, so I'm staying in tonight to watch some films.

Shaun of the Dead
The Whole Ten Yards
Gone in 60 Seconds

So far, I've only gotten halfway through Shaun of Dead, but really any movie that bills itself as a romantic comedy with zombies has got to be good. So far, it lives up to its billing.

  

Closer

I saw Closer on Friday night, and I'm kind of curious if anyone else has seen it. The number of movies out there where Julia Roberts says "He tasted just like you, only sweeter" in reference to semen is pretty small.

Anyway, I think that Clive Owen was in the right, Julia Roberts and Jude Law were just generally fucked up, and Natalie Portman was pretty much evil.

Anyone agree? disagree?
