A few things

I am a huge movie fan as some of you may know.

One of my favorite pastimes is quoting movies back and forth with Amber via text or Facebook.
If I like a movie I can watch it over and over again.
I have watched Mamma Mia with Amber at least a dozen times.
We have also watched Pride and Prejudice.....one of my favorite books/movies a kagillion times.
(yes thats a real number)
We know the movie pretty much word for word.....our favorite line to say is......
"I hate balls".
I know you are feeling my maturity right now but whatever......I like us.

So before the Oscars which is like my Superbowl Sunday.
I try to see as many of the nominated movies as possible. 
I did not meet that goal this year but I will eventually watch them all except.......The Artist.
Do you know why?
Because its not F-ing 1925.
Are we serious about this here?
This is the picture of the year?
(hey that rhymed)
I don't give a shit how artistic it was.
It should not have won!
And not only did it win Pest Picture but Best Actor and Director?
What the hell.
So as you can see I am pretty pissed off.
Additionally I wanted Michelle Williams to win.
I love me some Meryl but can we give someone else a chance?
I was happy to see Billy Crystal back although his botox forehead 
and obviously dyed black hair was very distracting.
The one thing that REALLY irritated me besides The Artist wins was 
Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Lopez......save that shit for the MTV movie awards.
This is the Oscars show some class.
As a Potter fan I was disappointed that they did not win 
at least one of the categories they were nominated in. 
 Best makeup should have went to them....lets be serious here Meryl did not look that much different as Margaret Thatcher. 
Ralph Fiennes is barely recognizable as Voldemort.

Sunday was also The Walking Dead Night and as much as I love the Oscars I did record it between 9 and 10 so that I could watch Walking Dead because The Walking Dead trumps all.
I'm not going to get into the episode but I will say.......
I HATE Shane and Andrea.
I want them to die
get bitten
or leave
Thats all.

Have a very happy Tuesday!

Bride and Prejudice is one of my favourite movie too, I can watch it again and again, never get tired of it.
Mama Mia is sitting at the top as well, just love ABBA.

Now I did not watch the Oscars and did not see The Artist but most agree all of this is not fair.

Have a lovely day!

I am not an Oscars fan, I was mostly pissed thar Once Upom a Time wasn't on, but I watched the Apprentice and got 2000 more words. Wahooooo! :)

I didn't see many of the nominees this year, including The Artist, but I was pretty sure it was going to win. There's nothing Hollywood loves more than celebrating itself.

Feeling angry, are we? I haven't watched the artist just yet. To be fair, I don't have time to do a lot nowadays. That said, I have a new-found passion for Bollywood movies (not all of them). I find them a lot more approachable that some Hollywood movies.
