    Saw The Way Way Back yesterday. absolutely loved it. I swear Allison Janney is prettier now than when she was on the west wing. She was awesome in this movie. Steve Carrell was great but surprising. the main young boy was GREAT. the whole cast was amazing. recommend this highly.

    ^Ah that sounds awesome I can't wait to see it! I feel like Janney has been in so many great indie movies lately. I'm a fan of hers so I'm glad she (along with the rest of the cast) are good.

    Ehh, I think it looks a bit uninteresting? Having said that, I'm really not a fan of Diana so that may have something to do with it, lol.

    Something we often talk about, good movies that came out before real award season movies do. i just think the article is interesting.

    I was really, really looking forward to The Monuments Men... bought the book and everything. I'm not too captivated by the trailer but I'm still crossing my fingers it'll be great. The Captain Phillips trailer, however, surprised me. It looks pretty awesome!

    I kind of hate how we always get ambushed with hundreds of movies near the end of the year, haha, even though it can be fun. I don't think Oscar voters have short memories, though, I think all of the studios just put their Oscar bait in the second half of the year. Ehh, even though now that I think of it I think Shutter Island would've fared better had it been released later in the year. I don't know. It's definitely an interesting article.

    I doubt this will be an Oscar film besides its acclaim because it's horror (although that didn't stop exorcism or silence of the lambs) but I thought The Conjuring was ****ing fantastic. first off, all four leads were incredible. Vera Farmiga obviously but lili Taylor stole it for me. the movie felt so old school as well. If you like horror, GO SEE THIS. Also, my parents liked the butler. Not sure if I'm gonna see it though.

    Went to see The World's End last night. First, it was ****ing hysterical. I love british humor. But everyone knows that the trailers are the best part of any film and, since its August, we were BOMBARDED with future winners. I can't wait to see The Fifth Estate, Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Jon Don, and Captain Phillips (apparently spurring major controversy). Oscar Season is on its way!

    Me too! Dang- I am way behind on movies. I am not sure if I have seen any Oscar candidates yet. But I do think the music of the Great Gatsby will be nominated-- possibly the Lana Del Ray song or the Jay-Z song, "$100 bill." Really strong songs.

    Fruitvale Station- To me this was a good movie but not a great movie. The acting is pretty solid all around so it has that going for it. I was wrong going into it what I thought it was about. Mini spoilers- I thought it was actually about the shooting, I thought the movie took place basically all there but it doesnt. Its about Oscars day leading up to the shooting. Its a very slow paced movie. And when the train station scene happens it finally picks up but goes pretty fast. lasting about 5 minutes. So I feel the movie had a pacing issue. and its actually an extremely short movie, about an hour and 15 minutes. So I felt it left alittle to be desired. Im glad I watched it but I dont think Id probably see it again. Now something script related which is a pet peeve of mine that bothered me throughout this movie. Some of you will agree with me and im sure some wont. Theres a reason scripts arent written the way we talk, a script is "cleaned up" shall I say. For example if I wrote a female character based on the way I talk in real life every word that isnt a swear word would be the word "like". (obviously an exaggeration but you get the point) What Im saying is that if you watched a movie where "like" was used as often as it is used in real life it'd get annoying very fast. For this movie, I understand Oscar was brought up in a certain part of town and had certain friends but holy crap if he said the word "brah" one more time. Almost every sentence he said ended in it. Not an exaggeration. After the 10th "brah" in the first about 4 minutes I was ready to punch the screen. Im not sure if it was a writer, actor, or directors choice though. So it may not bother you all as much as it did me but as a writer it bothers me a lot haha.

    ^Ahhh Fruitvale! I'm saving your review until I watch the movie, which should be in the next couple of days. Anyway, I'm popping in here to agree that I'm starting to get super excited about Oscar season!

    That Inside Llewyn Davis trailer just makes me all kinds of excited. That movie just seems like it's going to be right up my alley. Can't wait.
