I know. It’s been really dry here. As dry as summer. I have this summer job that makes me so busy the whole day that I’m so tired by night. But I’ll make it up to you, guys. Added to the delay is the fact that the next nominee to be discussed is THERE WILL BE BLOOD. Any clues now?
Anyway, I have watched some films last year. Here are some thoughts:
I thought the film was very well made. The performances were good. There are only two or three boring scenes. I slept in 5 minutes of it, but I woke up and I was still in the same scene. But the ending was awful! I mean, they should have ended the movie with the close up on Jim Sturgess’ face. With those documentary-like part, and that TV ending, it just fell there. Too bad, the last 5 minutes of the film made me actually think that the movie’s bad.
Paprika Steen (Applaus) and Nicole Kidman (Rabbit Hole) were fantastic.
Eat Pray Love is actually good. Let me put it in this way. New York – good. Italy – great. India – okay. Bali – beautiful. Not a bad film after all.
Scott Pilgrim vs the World is awesome, though I don’t love it as much as the others.
Greenberg was cute. Not really that fun, but the two leads were great. And the ending is so sweet. It took me two viewings of the ending for me to understand that.
Buried was thrilling.
The Tourist is very exciting. I don’t get the haters, actually..
