  1. I am happy to see Andy Serkis get recognized and I giggle at the worst films. I have no desire to see Dumb & Dumber

    1. I wonder if Serkis will ever get Oscar recognition for his acclaimed mo-cap work. I kind of doubt it, but you never know.

  2. The worst films list is excellent... except for the omission of Winter's Tale which needs to be in that list because that is one of the worst films I had ever seen.

    1. I didn't hate that...too much, but it was no where near what it should have been. That novel was incredible!

  3. That Song lineup could be what we get at the Oscars. Glad The Raid 2 got a Foreign Film nod. It might not be awards bait, but it was awesome!
