Tsk tsk, Laz. 3-minute rub-job through the jeans >>>>> Greater than the most important motion picture of all time.

Against my better judgment, I finally saw Juno since it was the only nominated picture I hadn't seen. I absolutely hated every minute of it. I almost walked out but then I got obsessed with how much I hated the dialogue and I continued to sit there to see how bad it could get. I am astonished that it is even mentioned in the same breath as the other nominations. The worst movie I saw during the last 12 months.

Oh, and I also hated it.

Then you must not have seen very many movies this year. I wasn't crazy about Juno, but damn, there were tons of worse titles this past year. How many did you see?

I generally don't see bad movies--or, rather, movies that are widely panned. I'm not one to go see every release, I see the ones that reviewers and friends generally liked, except for the occasional film that I sense I might like regardless of what everyone else thought. So I'm sure there were worse movies in the theatre, I just didn't go see them. I see a lot of movies--but I don't keep a running count.

I think the thing that bugged the most about Juno is that the dialogue was well-suited for a sitcom, not a feature film. Thirty minutes of that snappy, clever dialogue where you can see the writer carefully going over every single word to make sure it's as clever as it can possibly be regardless of whether people really talk that way or not, is quite enough. I find it simply astounding that it is considered worthy of an Oscar nomination.

Okay, so I was curious about how many movies I saw during the last 12 months. I almost said I go to the theatre almost every week but I wasn't sure if that could be right or not. But I pulled up this list of top movies from 2007, and did a quick count. Of the first 150 movies, I saw 43 of them, and not every movie I saw was in that top 150 (like, Romance & Cigarettes, for example, which I loved). So I was close. And Juno was the only one I actually hated...well, now that I think about it, maybe I hated Knocked Up a little bit more. I completely blocked that one from my consciousness until I looked at this list.

*quickly does the math* spent over $300 on movies last year, at matinee prices though many I saw in the evening

Interesting. Good for you then. I do agree that Juno is no where near an awards-quality film though. There are numerous others far more deserving of its spot in the nominee list.

I thought it was a great year for film. Comedies, though, in general are not my favorite genre, although there are certainly some notable exceptions.

Name, then, please, your Top 5 comedies of all-time. For my edification, if for no other reason.

of all time?? Really? That's hard. I porbably can't do "of all time" but I can do "off the top of my head" though not right now. The top 5 will include Annie Hall and perhaps even some shameful Hugh Grant guilty pleasure.

I didn't think so although I was going to respond that even though my head's up my ass in fact I do remember that he's seen Juno and enjoyed it, ha.

Of all-time would be nice, but, even if it's recent vintage or top of your head, that'll suffice.

Annie Hall
