Best Picture

I thought I'd review some of the movies I've seen that were nominated for Best Picture this year. We all know which one won but that's beside the point.

Avatar - I loved this movie. I had wanted to see it as soon as the trailers started rolling and it proved to be totally awesome.

The Blind Side
- Great movie. It was even better than we thought it might be.

District 9
- Some people hated this movie but I loved it. On first viewing I didn't like it as much but it grew on me so that by the time I watched it again I was riveted. It's a great movie on social aspects regarding race and things that are different from each of us.

An Education - I have not seen this one yet but it is in my Netflix queue. Besides, I adore Peter Sarsgaard.

The Hurt Locker - Okay, everyone loved this but I did not. I liked the beginning but to me, it was long and drawn out and ended abruptly. I wouldn't want to watch it again.

Inglorious Basterds - Liked it, didn't love it but I think it's like District 9 and I need to watch it again. My biggest complaint was the time, it was a little long and I feel that if it'd been 20 minutes shorter I'd really have liked it. I also wanted to see more of Brad Pitt and Eli Roth's characters. Christoph Waltz was outstanding though. I think if I watch it again I'll like it even better.

Precious - Saw this yesterday and it was really good. I can see why Monique won the Oscar because she was phenomenal. Very depressing though so it goes on my list of movies I can't watch too often. Right up there with Last House on the Left (the original), Monster's Ball and Schindler's List. All great movies but the subject matter is just too sad for multiple viewings.

A Serious Man - I haven't seen this one but it's on my queue as well.

Up - I'm not big on animated movies but this one had a great story and I really liked it. Not to mention that it's rare for me to cry over an animated movie but I did with this one.

Up in the Air
- I have this one at home and plan to watch it today or tomorrow. I hear it's good but I'll have to see if I like it.
