Out of the Blue

Well tonight is Hollywood's chance to honor itself again with more awards. I heard Richard Roper on Howard Stern last week make a great point about this show, which is that they should cut the audio from the auditorium when they list those who died over the past year, as it would be far more respectful for the list to be read to silence, rather than rousing applause for the movie equivalents of jocks and cheerleaders interspersed with awkward quiet smatterings for the movie equivalents of the AV squad and the glee club. It won't matter to me though, as we won't be watching: In years past MrsBlue has occasionally roped me into the show, but she has a somewhat arbitrary dislike of Anne Hathaway, so I'm in no danger in that regard tonight. Here's hoping she's a hit and is signed on as permanent host.

I gave my reasons why I liked it. Why did you hate it?

Because I saw the tv show first. The tv show is not about him freeing villages in the earth kingdom it is about Aang (pronounced with a long a) and Katara getting to the north pole to find a waterbending master. Along the way they meet Suki and the Kioshi warriors and Aang goes to see Bumi (neither in the movie BTW).

Oh and bad acting...

New series coming this fall it is about the next Avatar Korra a waterbender.

My pic of the year is Faster with The Rock. Best goddamned action flick I've seen in a long time. Classic anti-hero film in the genre of Payback and Get Carter (the original) no sappy love interest crap to ruin it, just taking names and kicking ass. I love the fight in the strip club bathroom with the one guy he's after and him talking to the kid on the phone later. We need more action films like this.

I can't stand any of the pat-ourselves-on-the-back awards. The garbage they telecast to the world is even worse than the awards themselves.

I used to lol at the Razzies, but giving one to Repo! over Paris Hilton just proved they didn't even bother to watch it. She may be a scatterbrained, idiotic, spoiled rich kid, but if there's one thing in her existence she did right, it was her role in Repo!.

a day late blue, but regarding your post yesterday about Camelot, you can stream the first episode here:

http://www.starz.com/originals/Camelot

Good stuff. Eva Green is... it's just unreal how good she is. Almost to the point of hurting the rest of the cast, it's clear when someone is too good for TV. Doesn't hurt that she gets nekky either heh. Joseph Fiennes was also excellent as Merlin. A well written character as well, loved his lines.

How can MrsBlue dislike Anne?
On the opposite side Mrs Steelcamp just loves her and is going to watch on purpose for the first time.
I personally think she is hot...for 28...mmmm 28.

Another humdrum year for Hollywood. Less than half a dozen made my coveted "buy on disc" list. Best movie of 2010 I'd give handily to Scott Pilgrim.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say I liked The Last Airbender. It got me interested in the animated series. The movie basically condenses the first season. I felt a lot of stuff from the first season was waste of time. The movie gets to the point and moves the film through to the end. The only thing I didn't like about the film was the ending. I rather liked the water beast Aang becomes from the cartoon.
