    • Can you believe I haven't seen it yet? It's nominated for Best Picture and Quevenzhane has been nominated for Best Actress and I haven't seen it yet! Better rush to the DVD store, despite how far away it is now.

    • Just saw "The Tall" man starring Jessica Biel from director Pascal Laugier best known for the super violent cult horror flick "Martyrs."

       

      The Tall man is not a horror film as the trailer might make it seem but more of a mystery thriller with some twists. It is a film that you must pay close attention, which are the dialogue and the visuals.

       

      The film has an R tag but it is actually quite clean and non-violent but the story is what grabs you and keeps your attention.

       

      Jessica Biel is great in this and the acting is solid throughout, the story revolves around the disappearance of many children from a small town that many blame on The Tall man.

       

      Can't say much without entering into spoiler land but I would recommend pick this up and give it a watch.

    • Yeah. Tarantino's brilliant but one person gave a comment in which got me thinking. Someone said this it seems like Quentin is obsessed with the theme of vengeance. I kind of had to agree with it since I saw Lincoln weeks earlier, and that's a movie about justice being done to slavery. Then I see Django about revenge on slavery. I kind of agree that like him, I would have appreciated Django more had it not been fo r Lincoln and that it appears Quentin over the theme of revenge. Some good points.

    • Nice to see Watts got a nomination she was brilliant in "The Impossible", on the subject of that movie I think it was robbed and should have been up for best film.

       

      The Impossible is a must see with Watts and young Holland owning it, this is an exceptionally well made and acted film.

       

      The stunning early beauty of Thailand is then shattered with the destruction wrought by the waves, the scenes of Holland and Watts been swept along conjurs up sheer terror, in one particular scane a second wave sends Hollnad churning under the water as if in a blender before he resurfaces and they are carried far inland.

       

      Highly recommended.

    • Biggest surprise.....................Ben Affleck winning best Director..not that he is not deserving but what a great lineup. :) I was expecting Steven Spielberg

    • January 15, 2013 3:14 PM EST
    • Lincoln was robbed.

    • January 14, 2013 8:25 PM EST
    • Very nice comment about Jodie Foster, I agree.

    • I am glad "Argo" beat out "Zero Dark Thirty" but I also was hoping Lincoln got it, Argo was good but from what I heard it is also a lie they diminish the role a Canadian last name Taylor played in the whole thing, the director changed it up.

    • January 12, 2013 1:46 AM EST
    • I really hope "Lincoln" pulls if out ove "Zero Dark Thirty" if not "Django Unchained" but stuffy Hollywood never give it to something so refreshing and against the norms of movie making because Quentin makes what he wants and don't give a damn about HW.

    • January 11, 2013 5:45 PM EST
    • Zero Dark Thirty??? are you serious I have not seen it but have read a lot of critcism of it even one from a regular here about it being too long and very boring first half and all the protest of the use of torture.

       

      I for one have no intention of seeing it.

      And there you have it. My predictions for Sunday's Golden Globe awards. Tune in on Sunday to see the winners.

    • January 17, 2013 12:39 AM EST
    • As per my post on your GG topic I can't help but feel once more the brilliant "The Impossible" with a nice performance by Watts and Holland will be ingnored.

    • January 13, 2013 2:44 PM EST
    • I hope Lincoln cleans up, not Zero Dark Thirty.

    • January 12, 2013 1:47 AM EST
    • Year after year for it seem like forever you consistently throw these awesome predictions up, I wish I had kept track of your record over the years it is pretty good.

    • January 10, 2013 11:34 PM EST
    • Great job of throwing young Wallis in there.

    • January 9, 2013 5:28 PM EST
    • Great choices, I think maybe on other site you might have commented on it but I would like to know what you think of the extended categories they went to a few years ago? I don't like it.

    • January 9, 2013 3:43 PM EST
    • I though I had to wait at least ten days from now to make my nomination predictions. Not so lucky. Just after I make my predictions for the Golden Globe wins for Sunday, I go to the calendar at the Awards Daily site thinking I have a nice comfy two weeks to make my Oscar nominations predictions. Not so lucky. I can't wait because they're tomorrow! Boy do I need my coffee.
       
      So here goes with my nominee predictions for the Academy Awards. As usual, I have my predictions for nominees, my Dark Horse predictions whoI think could upset (if I feel I can make one) and a For Your Consideration pick for one that has no chance for a nomination but desrves one.

      And there you have it. My nominee predictions. How did I do? Find out tomorrow morning.

    • January 9, 2013 10:01 AM EST
    • IMHO I don't even see how "Zero Dark Thirty" is up for GG as best film, it has many flaws.

      The first half is exceedingly boring and hard to watch with the use of torture, only the raid and leading up to it is of any use.

       

      I would skip this if you havent seen it wait for video.

    • January 7, 2013 2:36 PM EST
    • I see it is liked by critics, has it not been nomiated for Golden Globe awards?

    • January 6, 2013 10:07 PM EST
    • Not only is Zero Dark Thirty CIA propaganda that pushed on the movie goer that torture works and is extremely necessary to keep Americans safe it is a poorly made film with bad lighting, poor audio and bad acting.

       

      Zero Dark Thirty is a filthy lie a fictitious tale of a true event, no wonder the rest of the world hates Americans with the depravity portrayed in this wretched film.

       

      The first few minutes of this film had people walking out and demanding a refund and so would I except I wanted to see the ends this depravity stretched.

       

      I am also disapointed that Teen Stars Online a gerat family friendly site would promote this monstrosity by having the trailer on it's site, there is nothing family friendly about Zero Dark Thirty, notjhing at all.
