Jen and I went to Mayfair to watch a couple Best Picture nominees today. I will have more to say about everything when I get to my final “Oscars Preview” post, but for the time being, these were my initial thoughts:
- Slumdog Millionaire – Nice movie. Well-directed. Interesting for Americans to see for the sake of some exposure to India, but that’s probably most unique thing about it.
- The Curious Case of Benjamin Button – Long movie. Very, very long movie. There’s a decent payoff in the last 30+ minutes, but I don’t think the build-up was worth it. 13 nominations? Seriously?
Now I am very tired, and I am going to sleep.
