Movie Quote of the Day – Juno, 2007 (dir. Jason Reitman)
Auteur of the Week – Jason Reitman
I went to a screening of Thank You For Smoking in February of 2006 because I was a big fan of his father, Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters, Kindergarten Cop, etc.) and wasn’t sure what to expect. I ended up really loving the film and actually got to meet Reitman afterwards and told I thought it was an amazing debut feature film and I looked forward to seeing more from him in the future. Jump to over four years later and he’s now a four-time Oscar nominee, twice for directing. Suffice to say, he has not let me down.
For Your Consideration – The Hangover
I had this thought that perhaps The Hangover should win Best Picture at the Oscars this year.
