Avatar – Visually Stunning, But Ultimately Boring and Predictable


I really did go into this film with an open mind. After about 30 minutes I was pretty sure I knew how I’d feel about the rest of the film. Why? Because I could see exactly how it was going to play out and all I really wanted was for it to end.

Avatar Surpasses Titanic at Worldwide Box Office


This is a big feat and it’s taken a film 12 years do it. It’s no surprise, really, that James Cameron would be at the helm of the movie that finally surpasses Titanic–his last film.

This number is only going to go up as Titanic got to this number through a re-release after it won Best Picture. I remember seeing it when it first came out in December 1997 or maybe January 1998 and then seeing it again for my birthday in June. I don’t really see a re-release of Avatar in its future. Although, it could be a possibility since there still isn’t a home release technology that can preserve the film’s 3D self.

Reflections on the Golden Globes


As shocking (and for many, upsetting) as  Avatar‘s win over The Hurt Locker and Inglourious Basterds is, it doesn’t mean it’ll take the top prize at the Oscars in March. It’ll be nom’d for sure, but that really is all that’s certain at this point.

Polls! Polls! Polls! (take 2)


Unlike yesterday’s post, today I want to know how you think the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is going to vote. Who do you think WILL WIN the awards tonight?

I’ll post my predictions along with what my beloved readers think around 4 of 4:30 tonight, but then I have to hide from the internets because the awards ceremony is tape delayed and I’m on the West Coast and don’t want to get spoiled :/ THE SHOW IS NOT BEING TAPE DELAYED THIS YEAR. It’ll be shown simultaneously in the East Coast and the West Coast. This is wonderful news. I’ll be live-blogging the ceremony over on my tumblr: http://oldfilmsflicker.tumblr.com/ if you’re interested.

Polls after the cut.

What the Critics Choice Awards Mean to Oscar


In many ways the Critics Choice Awards are just as good, if not a better gauge of how the Oscars are going to go than the Golden Globes. Granted, there are no Academy members who vote for either of those award shows (unlike the guilds, where there are some crossover members with the Academy.)
