'Inception' ...

So, that's a lock for Best Picture.

I saw inception. I think I see them all. To me, it was too contrived and manipulative.

Winter's Bone, nothing even close to that for me. Great, great, great movie.

I saw "Winter's Bone," too, and really liked it. I mean, it broke my heart, but I really liked it.

But the intricacy of "Inception" left me breathless. I can't imagine what it took to write that script.

Time will tell which way the Academy votes. The pendulum seems to swing between reward the big spectacle films and the indie darlings.

I actually found "Winter's Bone" to be an uplifting story, very hopeful. It was so gritty and felt so honest. I could connect with that.

Yup, Tom, "Winter's Bone" was definitely gritty and honest. That scene? In the swamp? Yeow.

And Angelo: D'oh! I forgot about that one! (This is why no one asks me to predict the Oscars.) I very much want Colin to win!

I was really disappointed with "Inception". It started out okay but the last half just didn't seem dreamlike...it was more just like watching five action movies simultaneously.

Loved "The King's Speech" as well, and that makes it official.t
