    I knew it was a choice, but it just didn't look good. I also saw it in 3D which reduces the visual quality overall so maybe that was it. I only saw one other movie, Gravity, in 3D, so I don't really know why I decided I wanted to see this in 3D. It was good for it overall but some parts looked super fake with it.

    Also to tag on the end of my review there will probably be nominations in both sound categories.

    It needs an Oscar for the guy with the guitar. I really enjoyed it, it was Mad Max in name but not really about him.

    So Spy looks amazing so I watched Tammy last night. Dear god.

    This was just... meh. I get what they were going for but it didn't grab me. The story just seemed basic, and if you're gonna be making a silent movie in the 2010's, it better be compelling. I went and looked what this beat for best picture, and boy there was not a lot of competition.

    I really enjoyed it in the theater. We bought it on Blu-ray, and have never opened it.

    I definitely made the effort to sit and watch it without distraction. Part of the reason it took me a while to get to it.

    I haven't seen it since the first time but in my head I've slowly have come to hate it more and more.

    Only other one I saw was The Descendants. Been meaning to see Moneyball. I have basically no desire to see the others.

    Tree of Life and Moneyball are good.
    Hugo is okay.

    I've seen The Descendants which was pretty decent. Moneyball may be okay as a film, but really annoying for anyone that actually knows baseball. The rest I haven't seen either. Seems really weak.

    It's not a bad movie, but any baseball fan will be very amused on how they blatantly ignored that even after the 2001 firesale, Oakland still had one of the best rotations in baseball (Zito/Hudson/Mulder, and to a lesser extent, Lidle and Lilly), in addition to one of the best left infield combo with Tejada and Chavez.

    Nope! it's was just a bunch of minor league scrubs, plus David Justice!!

    I just realised I flew to Europe just after these were all released, because I basically watched Midnight in Paris, Hugo and Moneyball back to back to back on the flight over. First two are good, Moneyball is average and the weakest of the three. I then watched Warrior, and it's better than all of them.

    Also seen The Descendents, which is good too, but it looks like a weak year,

    Next up on my Best Picture time travel is The King's Speech. Also not looking forward to that one.

    It's also good but not great.

    I've just also realised the exact moment I stopped watching movies was when I had children.

    I heard it's surprisingly good but I have no desire to watch it.

    I'll second Warrior being world's better.

    Yea I've heard that too but it just feels so stuffy. Perhaps I'll be surprised with lowered expectations.

    Here's a rundown of what I'll be watching running backwards. I stopped listing after OOA. There's some I want to watch before I would get to them.

    King’s Speech
    Slumdog
    Crash
    Million Dollar Baby
    Return of the King
    Chicago
    Gladiator
    Shakespeare in Love
    Titanic
    English Patient
    Schindler’s List
    Unforgiven
    Dances with Wovles
    Driving Miss Daisy
    Rainman
    The Last Emperor
    Platoon
    Out of Africa

    Do I need to watch Two Towers? Can I just watch the last one? I saw Fellowship.
