Gut Reactions

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.
