As you can tell, I still have some missing best actor/actress picks. Just not been that impressed I guess. Please give me advise, I have until Sunday…The Golden Globes. I would still wanna see “I’ve Loved You So Long” and all Best Foreign Movies nominated, Waltz with Bashir especially, “Tropical Thunder”, “Happy-Go-Lucky”, “In Bruges”, “Frost/Nixon”, “Changeling”…

And no, I don’t have to see “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”…I’ve seen it, and…did not care for it very much. Although Tilda Swinton almost made it on my Best Supporting Actress list!



  1. OMG….you are back.

    Glad you are back and safe.

  2. I was very dissapointed with the “Curious Case of Benjamin” as well, the story didn’t flow – i was expecting better than that.

    “Slumdog Millionare”, “Doubt”, “The Reader”, “Revolutionary Road” are simply outstanding.

    I will be watching “Happy-Go-Lucky” in LA this weekend.
