My Reaction to Oscar Nominations for 2011 Films

| January 31, 2012 | 0 Comments

RANT Since the first time the Oscars were first telecast in the mid-fifties, I’ve been enthusiastic about them. I haven’t missed a telecast. Starting in the mid-sixties or maybe before, I have seriously followed the nomination process. Without exception, in the past, I’ve agreed with a huge percentage of the choices receiving nomination. NOT THIS […]

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN  Rated: 9 I saw THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN yesterday (Opening day-July 3, 2012) and thoroughly enjoyed it.

ABDUCTION Rated: 3 ABDUCTION is destined for major Razzie recognition as their choice for Worst Film of 2011 with Taylor Lautner likely to take the prize as Worst Actor. Most of the time, he looks as if he just smelled something unpleasant. Sigourney Weaver gives the worst performance of her career but it probably isn’t […]

27 DRESSES — Rated: 7 1/2 While it would be easy to pick 27 Dresses apart since it’s far from perfect, that’s not going to happen here. I liked it. Three sections in particular make up from some awkward/obvious plotting. The three: (1) a sing-along of “Benny and the Jets” in a bar by Katherine […]

300 Rated: 6 Right off the top, let me point out that I’m not part of the target audience for this one since I’m out of my teens and have zero interest in violent graphic novels, comic books or video games. Don’t think of this as an apology for that. From repeated painful experience, I’m […]
