    I've only heard of one movie on that list.

    I never seen that movie either.

    Note: I'm falling behind on this media thing ... far behind. I should start by watching Terminator because apparently I'm an idiot for not seeing it.

    I don't know, but do not go to see The Sea Inside. It's a political film, made by means of political interests, and starred by political actors. It's a pity that spanish films are taunted too with this illness. Zapatero was very satisfied when he went out the cinema. :yuck:

    Oh, geez, I need to get to the movies more often. I haven't even heard of any of those movies on that list, let alone seen any of them. But, that's okay, the types of movies that win Oscars are ones I usually find pretty boring.

    When's Oscar night? I need to remember to either pick up a movie to watch or bring home a lot of work; there's never anything worth watching on TV on Oscar night (including the awards...why do people watch a bunch of celebrities patting each other on the back for hours on end?)

    I've never seen any of those movies. Based on what I've heard I'll make a guess towards the top two most likely choices.

    Ray and The Aviator, in that order.
