I like Nicholas Holt, and I wasn't sure why he would go for this sort of film. But I might have to check it out now. I still have low expectations, but I guess I can only go up from here right?

Miller-Time ... you typically have pretty accurate reviews along the lines of my views/tastes anyway. Have you ever seen History of Violence? What's your thoughts on it?

Titanic 5.5/10

Never seen it but watched it yesterday and after finishing it... holy shit is it overrated. Complete ripoff after Poseidon (7/10 much better film). I only recommend it if you're bringing a date who gets emotionally very easily but other than that my god what a bore.

8.5/10

Moonrise Kingdom 8/10

Maybe my favorite Wes Anderson movie (it is this or Life Aquatic). The environment may have helped sway my opinion though.

Probably my favorite movie of 2012 and I don't usually like stuff like this. Just bought the Bluray actually.

Identity Thief - 5.5/10

Liked the beginning and the end...that's about it. Some good laughs in there. Decent enough for a popcorn flick, am a Jason Bateman fan so went to see.

Only one Best Picture nominee left to watch for me, Les Miserables. Can't say I'm looking forward to watching 2.5 hours of a musical but I'll give it a shot.

Best so far: Life of Pi
Worst so far: Silver Linings Playbook (solid overall, just not as good as all the others)

My rankings of the Oscar nominees:

1. Django Unchained
2. Lincoln
3. Zero Dark Thirty
4. Life of Pi
5. Argo
6. Amour
7. Silver Linings Playbook
8. Beasts of the Southern Wild
9. Les Miserables

Beasts and Les Mis sucked balls.

Amour is a good movie but also one I never want to watch again. That was harder to watch than any brutal violence in recent action movies.

Yep. Lots of good moments like Georges helping Anne get off her wheelchair, Anne spitting the water and Georges slapping her in return, etc.

By far the most punishing film this year.

I saw Les Miserables on Broadway a long time ago (I think I went with my school) and I'm not a musical guy either, but a few of the songs have still stuck in my head to this day. The finale is a really rousing, miltary march.

Just read it's coming back to Broadway for a third time, there's a reason for that...it's quite good. Haven't seen the movie.

I mean, maybe if you're into watching movies strictly to laugh at gaping, not even plotholes, just general OK WHAT THE ****?, type stuff. But yeah, save the 90 minutes of your life.
