I asked for my money back at the end of "A Serious Man". When the woman at the counter asked why I was displeased with the movie, I told her it was false advertising. There was absolutely no magic in the film. She asked why I thought there was going to be magic and I said "jew magic, of course."

Focus really dropped the ball on rolling out A Serious Man. It only played in my local indie theater for about 2 weeks in Tallahassee, and about 3 in Orlando, then disappeared. It's a hard movie to market, I guess, but just say it's a Coens movie and put it out on 2000 screens.

Yeah, "from the makers of The Big Lebowski, O' Brother Where Art Thou, and No Country For Old Men" should be all they needed to say to get asses in the seats. Should have been a wide release.

Exactly. It's not like their films have ever done gangbusters, but $10 mil is pathetic. No amount of jew magic could make that acceptable.

Too bad Republic credits are no good here, either.

I've been working for half an hour on putting Mike's picture onto a harry potter poster, but it looks like shit.

Someone needs to get on that.

Completely forgot about the Screen Actors Guild Awards today. Found out the hard way as I had to make an emergency trip into work across the street from the Shrine. Oy. Thankfully, I made it out before 4.

I'd be rooting for Mr. Fox over Up in this case as well, seeing how Anderson went about recording the voices in natural environments and working some of those elements into the animation.

Sound design is an area I'd like to learn about more in-depth, and I never feel qualified enough to make solid enough judgments on how they're employed in a film. All I can say is that it was one of the elements of Thirst that floored me.

If I were judging the animated films purely on ADR and voice-work then yeah, I'd be inclined to agree with you. Pixar really does just have the most talented people in the field working for them though it seems, and it's the one area I'll continue to give them consistent credit.

Thirst had lovely sound work, I agree, but again this is one area where I have to bow down to one of the year's favorites. The Hurt Locker totally walks away with the whole package this time around. Really impressed by the film's blend of realism and subjective expressive sound work. Good shit. I'm still waiting to see Avatar a second time though, since that seems to be the favorite in most technical fields including sound editing.

Oh, absolutely.

Hard to disagree with that. I'm surprised to not see District 9 on any list.

Jeremy Renner's wearing a velvet suit. Badass.

So, the Producers Guild gave the nod to The Hurt Locker over Avatar:

IMDb | Road to the Globes 2010 | Producers Guild Awards

What's interesting here is that like the Oscars this year, the PGA went with 10 nominees and the revised voting method of ranking. Shows that despite the Golden Globes, it's still wide open.

the only thing that is wide open is what the 10 nominees will be.

If I had to handicap the winner?

here is my run down.

1. The Hurt Locker

2. Avatar

3. Inglourious Basterds

4. Up in the Air


the other 6 nominees?

my guesses?

Up

Precious

Invictus

A Serious Man

An Education


well that's 9

number 10 could be District 9, or Mr. Fox, or Blind Side

with this year 10 nominees are too many,
7 might have been a better number.
