Oscar Wisdom Frothing


I cut down the number of categories this year which means more films are in categories I will disagree with in twenty-five minutes than usual. So it goes.

    Black = have seen
    Red = gotta see
    Rotten Apple = slightly more than just willing to see
    Turquoise = "ambivalent" is putting it nicely
    Green = no clear feelings either way

  1. Either you've seen all the movies or my web browser is refusing to render any colors. =)

  2. .

    Edit: Typo in key corrected.

  3. .

    Edit: Fixed color code.

    Now that Chrome shows html colors coded the lazy way, I've gone back to being lazy.

  4. I see colors now. =)
    I've given up trying to stay current with HW, but I do need to see Fantastic Mr. Fox.
    And I think I should see Avatar at some point, although I'm not in a hurry.

  5. Agreed on Mr. Fox.

    Star Trek is worth a look, in my opinion. The opening sequence is one of the most moving I've seen in a big budget film.

    Same feelings as RC on Avatar.

    Don't waste your time on Transformers 2, but you already knew that.

    I've now seen Logorama. It was okay. Can't imagine it was better than the Aardman offering though.
