I just saw the Changeling.  I don't think it will be nominated, but it is not a bad movie.  I am still not hearing much of what will get some good praises.  There are not a lot of huge name directors this year.  I am sure there will be some surprises.  Lets hope. 11/16/2008

I really hope Sally Hawkins gets a nomination for Happy-Go-Lucky. It might be too small for an Oscar, but at least a Golden Globe.  11/24/2008

Entertainment Weekly has their predictions out.  I have seen only a couple but plan on seeing most.  There could be another surprise or two as far as who the Academy chooses, but this looks like a good start.  I am actually really excited to see almost all of them, but I am sure many will be average Dramas.

Well I saw Australia.  You can mark that one off the list of oscar buzz.  Here is my review.

Australia (2008)
Australia is Amazing, this Movie is Not
2/4 stars
I was expecting this to be the country of Australia's "Giant" which stars Bogart, Dean, and Taylor. Though I didn't give that movie a high rating I attribute it's lack of quality due to the evolution of time. Well, Australia just came out and it doesn't even stand the test of time. I was very disappointed in this flick.

The Good: The acting - both Kidman and Jackman are great as usual. The child actor is actually pretty good as well. The cinematography is amazing at times, but at others, the CGI is terrible (I think). It is a beautiful country from what I can see and really does depict what Australia could have been like (though it definitely could have been better). The story is actually OK though extremely cheesy at times. Still it is an epic movie and does and I wouldn't classify it other than that.

The Bad: Did Disney do this? It seemed like a rated G movie. There was no edge to it. It was also way to over dramatic at times. I found myself closing my eyes in embarrassment at times. The story was decent enough but because of the cheese factor it truly brought it down. It just didn't do enough for me to think it was good. Much like Pearl Harbor, it had several places where the movie could have ended. Like most epics, this movie could have been broken up into a couple flicks. Thankfully they kept this all in one mess though.

Don't see this movie unless you love Australia, love overblown epics, and can stand large amounts of cheese. Not good, but not bad.
