Other then Mystic River, Shutter Island, and Gone Baby Gone did you like any other of his books? Assuming you read others by him.

Actually, besides SI which I just re-read, I've only read Mystic River. I started The Given Day but I gave up on it pretty quickly but maybe I'll pick it back up after I get over the little Cormac McCarthy kick that I'm on.

Shutter Island was quite good, both my wife and I really enjoyed it. Tended to be on the slow side, but kept my attention the entire time.

Wow no Oscar talk, kind of a big upset last night with Hurt Locker beating out Avatar, James Cameron looked pissed after he lost best director but probably was thinking well I got best picture wrapped up, nope!

Saw Paranormal Activity on Saturday, really? the scariest movie since Exorcists, really? I guess if you are scared of things that go bump in the night maybe. I was struggling with keeping my eyes open.

So will the 20th anniversary special edition Blu Ray for Point Break now have the words, "From Academy Award winning director Kathryn Bigelow" on the cover?

Of course Hollywood whores that stuff like crazy. Given a choice between watching PB and HL I pick PB.

And he lost both awards to his ex-wife!

This was the weirdest moment of the night

I liked HL but I actually liked Inglourious Basterds and District 9 a lot more. Still haven't seen Avatar and I really don't have a whole lot of desire to see it.

I saw Avatar this weekend. Not the greatest movie, but I'm glad I saw it

I think we know the answer to your sig now by the way

I haven't seen Avatar yet and I probably won't. Mark me down as one of those that just doesn't get it.

I'll be seeing Hurt Locker soon, have it coming from Netflix next.

I'm still trying to figure out why District 9 was even nominated for best picture.

I missed that I was trying to watch the Celtics play as well as watching the Oscars. What a bitch. Cameron had to be boiling inside, I forgot that is his ex. he has plenty of Oscars with Titanic. To be honest Avatar's storyline was nothing ground breaking at all. I like that they acknowledge horror films this year, I believe they said it is the most popular genre.

Oh yeah, I guess I need to change that now. The only thing that sucks is that my buddy's Turkish father-in-law can no longer yell "Why don't they throw the action play to El Randle?" during games. I'm sad I never got to see that in person.

If anyone gets a chance, peep Un Prophete. It was nominated for Best Foreign flick. I think it was much better than any of the 10 noms in the Best Pic category.
