Leaning towards Argo... [In reply to] Can't Post

I haven't seen it, nor Lincoln,nor zero dark thirty to judge (it seems these three have the most chances). But the buzz and the critics favor Argo the most, so this must be the one.

Surprising List [In reply to] Can't Post

I look at this list, and for the first time I can really remember, I don't care about a single one of them winning. I don't know why, but it's rather odd.

I was thinking Lincoln will win [In reply to] Can't Post

But I don't know, the Oscars are so unpredictable! Argo and Silver Linings Playbook are reaping plenty of rewards, but it seems that during a musical year, the musical ends up beating out the other choices, so it could be Les Miserables. Lincoln should win, but the Oscars seem to pick the little movies hardly anybody has heard of like Crash or fluffy popular little movies like Shakespere in Love and not the big sweeping epics that used to win years ago!
So I really have no clueLaugh

I'm the same way [In reply to] Can't Post

I think the field this year is just kind of "meh". Maybe I'm just becoming a cranky old hobbit. ;)

I haven't seen any of them [In reply to] Can't Post

But I hear more about Life of Pi than anything else. So that's why I think it'll win. Otherwise, don't really care. Hobbit isn't there, so I'm not interested. Tongue

I was disappointed in Lincoln. [In reply to] Can't Post

Much of the script was just not credible. Footsoldiers repeating the Gettysburg address from memory? It wasn't widely publicized at the time, and only became a must-memorize in the 20th C. A black soldier holding forth on equal pay for equal work? Totally anachronistic. Lincoln and his wife discussing her mental health? Wildly unlikely. Mrs. L explaining the issues to Thaddeus Stevens? Forget it. And the 2 Connecticut senators voting against the amendment? Connecticut is talking lawsuit! The long, dramatic pause before the vote was announced? When everybody including soldiers in Virginia were keeping score meticulously? And on and on.

The acting was good, but that didn't save it. DDL deserved his Oscar, I'll admit.
