Kathryn Bigelow is queen of the world…

Well, I just got done watching the Oscars. It was a very good show. I enjoyed it pretty much, all the way through. Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin were actually very funny. I actually had some giggles and laughs. I’m happy with most of the winners.

I’ve been predicting for a long time that Kathryn Bigelow was going to get Best Director, and the “Hurt Locker” was going to get Best Picture, and I was right. Kathryn was victorious tonight. I’m happy James didn’t get anything this year.

My favorite parts of the Oscars tonight was seeing the tribute to the legendary director, John Hughes. That was very touching and sad. It was great seeing Macaulay Culkin on stage, we haven’t seen Macaulay in public in years. It’s nice to see Macaulay come out of hiding for once. Another thing I loved about the Oscars was that they showed a tribute to “Horror” films which is about time. The “Horror” tribute was very cool and they did a good job with it.

I enjoyed most of tonight’s Oscars except there was a few dissapointments. I didn’t like Sandra Bullock winning Best Actress, I think Gabby Sidibe deserved it more. I never saw “Precious” but that is Gabby’s first Hollywood movie. That’s why she deserved it. Sandra is such an overrated untalented bitch, she doesn’t deserve the Oscar spotlight at all. I don’t like any of Sandra’s movies and I refuse to watch “The Blind Side”. I do want to see “Precious” though even if I haven’t seen it yet.

It was a good Oscar show. The Academy did a better job than last year.


BREAKING NEWS: Nicolas Chartier banned from the Oscars!!!

One of the producers of “The Hurt Locker” is banned from attending the Oscars this Sunday. Why is this you may ask? For simply talking trash about “Avatar” in an e-mail to Academy voters. Nicolas may have apologized and said he’s still attending the Oscars but not anymore. Sounds like the Academy doesn’t accept his apology. People have the right to be opinionated when it comes to film, yes, but when it comes to Oscar voting time, it is not allowed. It’s against the rules.

This Nicolas Chartier has been creating controversy in the media as of late. I don’t think this will hurt the chance of “The Hurt Locker” winning, so don’t worry about it.

Variety Reports:



Report: Quentin Tarantino admits he won’t win Oscar for Best Director, and predicts Kathryn Bigelow will win it instead…

Tarantino, speaks out his prediction for the Oscars. Tarantino says he has a very good chance in winning an Oscar for “Best Screenplay” or “Best Picture”, but he says he definitely won’t get one for “Best Director”. He thinks the “Best Director” award will go straight to Kathryn Bigelow, director of the war film, “The Hurt Locker”.


I actually agree with Tarantino’s prediction but I have this bad feeling that James Cameron will wind up getting everything again like he did for “Titanic”. I know a lot of people don’t want to see it happening, but sad to say, it probably will be James Cameron’s year again.

I hope Kathryn wins for “Best Director” or even better “Best Picture”, ’cause “The Hurt Locker” in my opinion, is the best film out of all the “Best Picture” nominations.


The Hurt Locker…

I just got done watching the movie, “The Hurt Locker”, on DVD, a war film directed by Kathryn Bigelow. I just wanted to review it a little bit. I was very impressed and blown away by the film. Sent chills down my spine. It’s one of the best war films I’ve seen in many years. A lot of the newer war films haven’t been that great and finally we get a great one. When you watch this film, it may seem like a man directed this movie when it isn’t. Kathryn makes you feel like a man directed it. Respects go out to Kathryn. Making a film like this would be difficult for a woman to do and she pulled it off. Not many women directors make movies like this. Most female directors are into romantic comedies, dramas, and serious films. Not war films with intense action scenes.

The movie is based on War In Iraq. It tells a story of a young bomb squad team going around Iraq disarming bombs set that are hidden in various things. Bombs could be set in cars even on human people, etc. Jeremy Renner plays Sgt. James which he is an expert bomb disarmer. They try their best to survive.

Very impressive film making by Kathryn. The action scenes were unbelievable. Loud explosions that sounded great on a home theater. I think there will be a sequel on the way ’cause the ending left open for another movie, I think. I’m pretty positive the “Hurt Locker” will make a Best Picture nomination for the Oscars. This would be my pick for Best Picture winner over the other choices, indeed. It would be appropriate if this movie won Best Picture, since War in Iraq is still going on. While, “The Hurt Locker” is fiction, it is still a realistic film since it was taken place in War in Iraq. You should definitely check this out if you like war movies.

In this movie, there are blood and guts scenes that may make your stomach turn…so just a warning.
