and judging by my predictions, its sad to say but i got owned. i got half of these right and the other half were just way off. im honestly so sad about fincher getting robbed of his oscar. he deserves to have a little gold man in his hand too! maybe next year or maybe never. i just have to remember that fellini, kubrick, hitchcock, or bergman never won an academy. the oscars of 2011 was just bullshit. i guess caucasian people have prevailed once again. the kings speech is such a trivial and redundant piece of work. while the cinematography was breathtaking, the story! the story was a snooooooozefest. k fine, im done shit talking...

im going to keep of list on the side of the blog to keep me in check. i dont know if i could complete this list this year but i know for sure before i diiiiiiie, i will!! btw, this list is 49 pages... im just going to keep telling myself that i can do it..
at first it reminded me very much of thumbsucker. but firstshowing.net is calling it very wes anderson/noah baumbach-esque and i guess i kind of agree. it seems like a cute indie british film and by the hype of it at its premiere at the toronto film festival, i cant help but be excited about it too.
submarine is a comedy following a 15-year old boy named oliver tate who has two objectives: to lose his virginity before his next birthday and to stop his mother from leaving his father for her dance teacher.
although the part of him wanting to lose his virginity does sound cliche, it might be good. the weinstein company has picked it up but a release date hasnt been confirmed. it will come out in the uk in march!
