I usually like to watch as many of the Best Picture nominees as possible, but I don't think an Oscar nod will be enough to get me to sit through War Horse. It looks visually appealing, but seems like it's probably boring and overly sentimental.
I'll have my predictions up sometime later tonight.

Nominations this year are about 70% disappointment, 25% completely predictable and 5% actually surprising.  Looks like the Academy is on par with it's last few years.  Expect another long and mostly boring show of Hollywood self glorification, with a little bit of comedic redemption from the well chosen host. 01/26/2012

jase - here is my War Horse review. It is horrible.

War Horse (2011)
Probably The Worst Movie I Have Seen of 2011
1/4 stars
Even the absolute beauty of the way this movie was shot cannot save the horrible story and horrible acting at times. Shame on you, Hollywood Foreign Press (golden globes) for even nominating this movie. I think Vigo Mortensen wrote this movie.

The Story: Horrible. Maybe if you are a horse lover or in love with Seabiscuit, Secretariat or any other over the top melodramatic movie you could enjoy this film. I am none of those (I despise Seabiscuit and I have never seen Secretariat). A young boy falls in love with a horse (in a very weird way in my opinion). His poor father finally buys the horse and the kid's love for the horse exponentially grows. Then the horse goes to war. Sounds bad, right? It is.

Style/Cinematography: Awesome. One of the best I have seen in a few years. Very high production value. Some Saving Private Ryan mixed in with The Searchers. Spielberg is a master at this. I talked recently about grit and texture. This movie finally has it. It is a shame though.

Musical Score: John Williams at the helm sounds good right? You know, the guy who did Star Wars and about 150 other movies. Not good again. Very very melodramatic. It was as if Spielberg wanted you to fall in love with the horse, as if you were married to it. John Williams has fallen of the cliff in the last 10 years.

The Acting: Jeremy Irvine couldn't have been worse. This goes beyond over acting and into pitiful. I feel sorry for him. The rest of the actors were ok, but they are all forgettable. I think this is also where Spielberg has lost it. He used to be able to bring out the best in any actor. He must be lazy now.

Compared to others: Skip this and anything related. Seabiscuit might be better. I can't recommend enough to skip this movie. Spielberg, I have almost lost faith in you.

I can't remember a year when I was more disappointed in the Academy nominations.  The more I think about it, and how predictable the winners will be, just makes me irate. 01/27/2012
