    War Horse looks pretty good, but I don't do animal movies anymore. I made a vow after My Dog Skip, and I've stuck to it!

    Do your reasons include the use of a lot of Kleenex? I want to see War Horse too and am afraid of sobbing. I can't stand Old Yeller endings.

    I see that "Albert Nobbs" is directed by Rodrigo Garcia. I wonder if any director today (male or female) understands women more than Garcia.

    I have put my foot down regarding movies about men with guns but can't stay away from the animal movies, even the bad ones.

    Spielberg is fine so long as one accepts that emotional manipulation is part of the experience and agrees with the intended emotional bias.

    The soundtrack and titles already have me in tears and immediately, I want to see it twice!!

    Now, let's see if Mr. Japanfan or anyone else will agree to see it with me.

    Exactly.

    W.E. looks so deliciously horrible, I want to see it just for the snarking possibilities.

    I take it this is the film on which Savchenko/Szolkowy have based their free.

    Oops, forget to vote for Carnage; love dark comedy and it's an awesome play!

    I've been meaning to head over to the independent theater to see Take Shelter and Martha Marcy May Marlene, but I'm behind on my theater rat tendencies.
    Sometimes I think I lost something really important to me, and it turns out I already ate it.

    I voted for Young Adult and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I wanted to vote for Iron Lady because I adore Meryl Streep but the movie itself does not interest me. I will see it for her performance but it will be when it comes to video.

    Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy had an earlier release date, but got pushed back. I assumed it was because they were doing some last-minute editing, but I think that like We Need To Talk About Kevin, both films got pushed back later in the year to get prime Oscar consideration.

    Tintin...probably not so much. I think the producers of Tintin hope that the film will do better with a December release over here and get the audience of all the kids on Christmas break. Plus the better it did in other parts of the world, maybe that could be used in the marketing here in North America.

    You know, when I realized that "Pina" was a dance movie, I thought, "I'm going to omit this one from the list...some boring old dance movie!!" But I watched the youtube trailer, thinking I could give it at least two minutes of my time! And you know what? It's better than most of the other trailers. Very interesting! Think I just might add it to my "to see" list.

    I really, really want to see Coriolanus but I doubt it will be playing anywhere near here. That and no one wants to go with me. Everyone is so uncultured!

    They got great reviews here, so I can understand that.

    Oscar has a short memory; films that open here in February, even if critically acclaimed, stand little to no chance of Oscar nods. Films that open much later in the year clean up.

    I just finished watching 'Fair Game'. I think this movie is a couple years old and I had seen it in a theater, but I enjoyed it more on the DVD. I thought then, and I still think that Naomi Watts should have received the Oscar nomination for this performance. She was brilliant portraying Valerie Plame Wilson. Sean Payne was good, as usual, but Valerie filled the screen with her presence. It's a pity this movie did not have much box office success. It is a story that we all need to know. I do remember reading about her and watching her interview on 60 minutes. I may read her book some day.

    Spirit award nominations are here:

    http://www.fandango.com/movieblog/sp...ck-687411.html

    I have not seen any of these movies, but The Artist seems to be the front runner this year. Other well known movies are not nominated because they exceed the 20 million limit. I am surprised that Michelle Williams is on the list for 'Marilyn'- how could that movie be under the 20 million dollar cap?

    I always wonder about career paths: Usually you see someone in a break-out role like Elizabeth Olsen but last year I'd never heard of Jessica Chastain and now she is in several films that appear to be "award worthy." How does that happen?

    Lady Luck

    Not to deny that Chastain is a very talented actress with an incredible range (comparing her in Tree of life and The Help). I am glad to see her get the recognition.
