    - I watched the Oscars in Italy when I saw this film won best-film. I just saw it tonight on DVD and must say - wow, what a movie. I usually don't like War-Genre movies but something about this film that hold my attention to the end - It was so good (the acting, story-lines, drama...etc). Anyone else love/like this film? Don't ruin or give away the ending to people who haven't seen it.

    Gud movie that was further enhanced by the 'new' actor [jeremy reimer?] having no problem letting world know he's SSA [same sex attracted/active (aka bi)]. He went 'home' w/ Colin Farrell [sp] who confirmed that they topped the nite off mutually, with Colin claiming he had a bigger cock, but are looking forward to more fun "with his great ass" next hookup.

    Forgot magazine name but was mainstream, and it was presented as a matter of fact- WOW the times are changing!

    I thought the movie was good for the kind of war movie that it was, and a worthy "Best Picture" nominee, however I did not think it was worthy of winning the "Best Picture" award when compared to the immense and ground-breaking cinematic achievement of "AVATAR". I really think the win for "Hurt Locker" by the Academy voters was more a sour grapes vote against James Cameron than a vote for "Hurt Locker". At the very least, James Cameron should have been given the "Best Director" Oscar for what has become the biggest motion picture of all time. I can't even imagine the undertaking it must have been to bring "AVATAR" from conception to fruition.

    That's a subjective thing. I found "Hurt Locker" boring at times too. "Avatar" was just so awe-inspiring to look at that it made it interesting.

    I didn't care for either The Hurt Locker or Avatar.

    A Serious Man was far more engaging and toyed with the audience's expectations. Of the Best Film nominees I've seen (the three aforementioned films and Up), ASM should have received the award.

    I thought the movie was great! It was my second choice though. I liked "Inglorious Bastards" and wanted it to win. What a great group of movies though. "Up In the Air", "Precious", The Hurt Locker", "Avatar", "Up", "The Messenger", "A Serious Man" were all great movies. I was very proud of film this year.

    Ugh, I completely agree with you. Other than the use of impressive 3D effects, there was NOTHING new or original about the movie. And most of the acting was 2D...flat.

    He might be gay/bi, but the Colin Farrell part sounds like you might be a little off;

    "[Colin] Farrell joked about the two spending the night together. While chatting up press Farrell referenced a trip to Mexico saying, 'I wish I remembered more of (the trip)! We shared a bed and a pillow! And before any rumors start, we were only spooning!' "

    Agreed... I saw Avatar 4 times and each time I wanted more of Pandora... Hurt Locker, I was ready to be over with halfway through. I'm so god damn sick of hearing about the Middle East. If I don't see or hear anything more about it for 10 years it'll be too soon. Plus, the movie was missing an entire act. You never are told how he slips into insanity. I felt this same way about Crash winning best picture. It should have gone to Brokeback Mountain and I'm not just saying that because I'm gay. It was genuinely a more progressive and enlightening film.

    I was pretty disappointed that A Single Man wasn't nominated. It told it's story unlike any other film I've seen thus far. You could really see Tom Ford's editorial background in it and I loved that about it.

    You got to be kidding me. There should be a law that says: Don't make movies about doormats. Or at least don't shlep your goy-boyfriend into movies about doormats.

    Avatar is sooo Overrated, 3D effects, 2D characters, the great message is that if you want to get connected with nature, just plug your ponytail to a tree. But aside from that Brian Gerahgty, Jeremy Renner and Anthony Mackie were a very sexy trio in every red carpet apperance

    That's part of the film's appeal; he's not a passive character, but he is submissive beyond reason (even when he transgresses others, it's due to the demands of yet other people). I agree that it's not a date movie, unless the couple in question enjoys stories about "God's chewtoy." The story, the setting, and the ending are out of the norm, without being pretentiously so.
