District 9 for best picture? Really? Personally I wasn't overly impressed by that movie.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

Oddly my wife enjoyed District 9, I say oddly becasue she hates SCI FI movies.

I thought it was OK. Reminded me of Enemy Mine in some ways.

I think they recently increased the # of nominations w/n the last year.

I've only seen Avatar, Hurt Locker, and IB. All three of these movies were really good. It would be a toss up for me. I guess if I had to choose it would be hard to go against Avatar, for the sheer spectacle of the whole movie.

I do want to catch most of them, Up In The Air is next on the list.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

I left work early yesterday b/c I've got a nasty cold, so I made it a movie day. Threw on "Watchmen" in the afternoon. I was really impressed. Very well done, good effects, and a very unique take on a superhero-type film. My only complaint was it probably didn't need to be 3.5 hrs long.

In the evening I threw on "Blow." Obviously I've seen it probably half a dozen times at this point, but I just love it. Such a bad-ass flick.

Then before I went to bed I watched the Biggie Smalls biography "Notorious." Pretty solid. I had very low expectations going in. It wasn't great, but the dude who played Christopher Wallace did an excellent job.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

I've caught parts here and there of Watchmen lately, every time I get sucked in. I'll have to bite the bullet and watch the entire thing soon.

No doubt. That scene in prison where he just pwned that dude in the dinner line was awesome. Then the quote right after- "Remember, I'm not locked in here with you, you're locked in here with ME!"

^ It have to be a prequel.

the comic book/graphic novel is an excellent read as well.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

Watched night at the museum 2 and barely made it through. Ben stiller just isn't funny anymore. I'll be watching planet hulk tomorrow with fingers crossed that it's cool.
As far as the oscar's go, from the movies nominated that I've personally see I would really like the long shot Up get the nod but it will probably go to the Hurt Locker which was really good as well. I've heard really good things about Up in the Air so I'll have to check that out soon too, but I still need to see book of eli soon as well as the wolfman and shutter island over the next couple weeks.
And for anyone who's seen it, is Zombieland worth a rental or straight up purchase for someone who loved shaun of the dead?
