About this time last year, I posted about not having seen any of the movies that were up for Academy Awards in 2009. Since then, I've seen three of last year's five nominees, and I wasn't very impressed with them. The critics and I almost always disagree!
This year, I have only seen two of the nominated films: Avatar (which I liked) and The Blind Side (which I choose for Best Picture). I am not planning to see District 9 because too many people I usually agree with told me how much they disliked it, and the subject matter doesn't interest me. I'm surprised to see Up on the list. I'm not suprised to see Inglourious Basterds, though I haven't seen it yet. I'm not a big QT fan. I plan to see Up in the Air when it comes out on DVD. I have heard of Precious, but I don't plan to see it. I have never heard of the other nominees: A Serious Man, An Education, and The Hurt Locker. What are your opinions?
Did anyone else notice there are 10 nominees for Best Picture this year when there were only 5 last year? I have no idea why!
