I've been invited to an Oscar-watching party, and I've only seen one of the movies this year (The Descendants). Since I don't have time to view everything I missed on DVD (that silly job thing getting in the way of my life, AGAIN), I need your help in filling out my ballot correctly. The hostess is handing out prizes! So tell me - what/who should win...
Never heard of it
Larry will NOT forgive me for choosing to see this movie instead of Tinker, Tailor, Soldier Spy.
I am not seeing any movie that says it is extremely loud...I need some peace and quiet.
I overheard a book club discuss the book once - does that count?
|Why are his arms like that, anyway?
Never heard of this one, either...
Midnight in Paris
I cannot BELIEVE I have not seen this yet - I may have to watch it this weekend.
I heard this was good, but...baseball? How interesting could that be?
The Tree of Life
That's the weird one, right?
I HATE horse stories. I'm not voting for this one, even if all of you tell me to.
I had no idea who this was until I started blogging. True story.
This guy is famous for something, right?
I still think "Thelma and Louise" when I see this name. I assume he's done other movies, right?
What? She was in a movie last year? Which one?
|This is just how I would look if I owned a coffee plantation.
Really? That sounds like what a character playing an actress in a movie would be named.
Okay, I know this one. I'm not THAT far gone. Although my reference point is Out of Africa...
Thanks for any help you can give me. And for the whole 15 minutes I was writing this, I didn't think about...hmm-hmmm...even once. That felt good.
By the way, the first commenter to figure out the reason behind the title of this post wins a Starbucks gift card. (With any luck, I'll even remember to mail it.) I'm warning you, though - you might not be able to figure out the meaning unless you are one of us middle-aged people who grew up with only 3 networks' worth of programming to choose from.
