2010 Best Pictures – Up

Posted in Uncategorized at 8:00 am by Heather

Up (2009): Jonas Rivera – watched Feb 19, 2010

Heather’s Rating: **       – It was ok

This was OK. I thought the first 5-10 minutes would have been a spectacular short film on its own – really sad and moving.  The rest of the film made me laugh a couple times, and was predictable as most animated films are.  Visually stunning, but the story line left me a little Blah.

2010 Best Picture Nominees – The Blind Side

Posted in Uncategorized at 11:47 am by Heather

The Blind Side (2009): Gil Netter, Andrew A. Kosove, Broderick Johnson

Heather’s Rating: ****   – Loved it – would see again

I really liked this movie – it was warm and made me think if I was in Leigh Anne’s shoes that I would take in some total stranger at 17 years of age from the projects and adopt him.  I think Sandy Bullock was fantastic in the role, and I can see why she gets nominations.  I’m not sure this is dramatic enough to win a best picture, but it definitely deserves a nomination.
