First, I hate the idea of Billy Crystal hosting the Academy Awards (I would have liked Seth Rogen)! I was surprised to learn that Pixar approached Billy Crystal to voice Buzz Lightyear in Toy Story but he turned it down and Pixar went with Tim Allen. After seeing its success Billy Crystal wanted to do another movie with Pixar so he voiced Mike on Monster’s Inc.
As far as movies, I really want Hugo to win Best Picture. Amazing movie! “The Artist” is really good too though. Woody Allen’s “Midnight in Paris” was awesome too.
Sean Penn was really good in “This Must Be The Place” although he wasn’t nominated. George Clooney deserves best actor for “The Descendants”, although Brad Pitt was good in “Money Ball” but Jonah Hill does NOT deserve best supporting actor in that movie because he only had like 3 sentences. WTF? “50 50” is a dramedy I was sorry didn’t get any recognition. Also, Leonardo DiCapprio at least deserved a nod for “J Edgar” (a complicated role). Keira Knightley absolutely deserved a nomination for “A Dangerous Method”. Kirsten Dunst also had a challenging role in “Melancholia” and proved she truly is a gifted actress and not simply a pretty face (although going full naked in that film probably didn’t help). Michael Swanson perhaps deserved recognition for “Take Shelter”. Johnny Depp was good in “The Rum Diary”. I think one of the most underrated comedies of 2011 was Steve Martin’s “The Big Year” although “The Change Up”, “Horrible Bosses” and “The Inbetweeners” were all funny but a little dirty. “Cedar Rapids” was shit! “Attack the Block” was probably unintentionally funny and amusing. Seriously, “War Horse” was so over-rated! “Real Steal” actually had some heart to it for a Disney family film. “Super 8” was a fun film too. “Mr.Poppers Penguins” was cute. “Captain America”, “X-Men: First Class”, “Transformers 3”, “Green Lantern”, and “Thor” were all entertaining with nice special effects. I liked the cinematography and special effects behind “Sucker Punch”. I actually liked how “Battle: Los Angeles” was made and the military perspective of an alien attack. “Priest” was . . . meh. Some people thought the vampire flick “Stake Land” deserved consideration but I thought it disappointing. The only thing abducted in Taylor Lautner’s “Abduction” was my two hours watching that shit. “Paul”, about two England tourists visiting a comic convention in America and run into a real alien they need to protect, was incredibly moronic and stupid, as was Nick Cage in “Drive Angry” and “Mars Needs Mom”. “Rango” and “Rio” were both cute animated films though. Justin Timberlake’s “In Time” was disappointing, although “Friends with Benefits” was actually decent. “Bad Teacher” was bad! “Arena” had to have been one of the worst movies I saw of the year although “The Setup” was bad too but showed 50 Cent can do SOME acting. I really liked “The Ides of March” and Ryan Gosling was also in “Drive”, a disturbing movie. Although I don’t normally like Romantic Comedies, “I Don’t Know How She Does it” and “What’s Your Number” were both entertaining. “Beastly” had some heart too. I thought “Crazy Stupid Love” was hysterical and touching. “Jumping the Broom” was a nice movie. “Contagion” was a movie that really captured the nation’s fear and was an excellent movie. I actually liked “Rise of the Planet of the Apes”. Australian film “Red Dog” had a lot of heart to it. “Everywhere and Nowhere” is a British film of young Indians growing up in London trying to forge their own identity and path against the control of their family and their religious and cultural constraints. “The First Grader” was an AMAZING movie as was “Master Harold and the Boys” (Ving Rhames perhaps deserved Oscar consideration). I LOVED “Source Code” and thought it was one of my favorites of the year. Matt Damon in “The Adjustment Bureau” was fun too.
Oh, I’m Sorry. Am I boring you?
As far as this year, I’m really looking forward to Pixar’s “Brave”
What’s the Academy Awards without some nice hor dourves? This dog must be trying to make some bruschetta. I LOVE bruschetta!

Fuck Rick Santorum! . . . still, I LOVE this headline! *evil grin*
Santorum calls Obama a “snob” for wanting you to go to college; “I understand why he wants you to go to college — he wants to remake you in his image.” PLEASE let this guy be the Republican candidate!

So Renowned Physicist Stephen Hawking Frequents Sex Clubs? “He arrives with an entourage of nurses and assistants. Last time I saw him he was in the back ‘play area’ laying on a bed fully clothed with two naked women gyrating all over him.” Ok, Ok . . . Here’s me coming up with some Hawking pick up lines:
1.) Hey baby, seeing you in three dimensions isn’t enough. Give me the fourth dimension.
2.) I’ll tell you about M-Theory if you take off your “G-String Theory”
3.) Can I see your ‘black hole’ and make time stand still?
