Oscar's '10

     Ok i've seen 5 movies out of the 10 movies selected, by the time this post is posted, it would be 9 hours to go for the ceremony. The 5 movies i've seen are "Hurt Locker, Inglorious Bastards,Up in the Air,District 9,Avatar". I watch movies so differently and i have a very awkward taste in anything, be it movies or other stuff, ok coming to the point, if only those 5 movies were selected for the oscar's and if and only if i was given a chance to select the best of those movie's, i would first reject "Avatar" and "Inglorious Bastards" out of contention, Avatar is pathetic apart from the special effects, it has story of a Vijaykanth movie but it's not that bad though, i just mean it can't be selected for the best movie.IB i think that good either, Tarantino might have already called this his masterpiece but it ain't, it has a very strong performance by Christoph Waltz, hope he wins that oscar for best supporting actor, but movie not good enough for the best movie.
     That simply leaves me down with 3 movies, now that's a tie-breaker situation. As far as imdb rating goes, the clear winner is District 9 it got 8.3 on imdb and ranked 117 in the top 250 movies, Hurt locker is 8 and Up in the Air is 7.9. But my choice, i really don't know, it's just boiled down to D9 and HL, now, if i ever got a chance to decide, i would give that to, i've put of a lot of thought into it, which is unusual  for me, it's District 9 and the only reason why it scores better than HL is that HL i lot slower than d9. Story-wise, hl is a little better than d9, bu it's D9. That's it for now will try to see "Precious Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire"(it's another nominee) before that ceremony starts.


  1. I really hoped it was D9 but its Hurt Locker... Didn't watch that movie yet.. But will watch it just to know y it was chosen over D9..

  2. HL's more realistic, i expected it though that HL might win, just because it's more realistic and coincidence today is women's day and HL directo-ress wins best direction.
