I've Seen a Movie Nominated For Best Picture!
When the Academy Award Nominees were announced on Tuesday, the first thing I noticed was that I hadn't seen a single movie nominated for Best Picture. Pathetic, eh?
And the nominees for Best Picture are...
- The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
- Lost in Translation
- Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World
- Mystic River
I'm pleased to announce this is no longer the case. I've just seen my first movie on that list of nominees. We just watched Seabiscuit and it was damn good. It was Rudy with horse racing in place of football. Actually, it was much better than Rudy, but it had that Rudy feel to it. Rudy may not have been a great movie, but I could watch it over and over again. I never get tired of that ending, in fact, I get weepy just thinking about it. Rudy! Rudy! Rudy! Rudy! Rudy! Rudy!
