I'll be happier when they make an Alice in Wonder that's not for kids.
        Pretty much how I felt. When I found out Burton was the director I was pumped, but it fell pretty flat of expectations. It was as though SPOILER he was trying to make a sequel but just rehashed alot of the ideas from the original. I really wanted more atmosphere, exploration, idk maybe I just wanted it more like the original, and it just seemed he threw in some sort of a big war conflict with the characters. Could of been so much more.

          Yeah I actually enjoyed it. I saw Cop Out last night, and any scene that didn't have Tracy Morgan AND Sean William Scott in it was just painful. I can't believe Kevin Smith directed it.

              It was alright, it is your typical, predictable horror/zombie type flick. The baby's room scene was pretty good.

                  It was an easy year for predictions. The only close ones were Best Picture and Best Director. I thought about betting on The Hurt Locker to win Best Picture when the nominees first came out but I didnt because the odds were so in favor of Avatar.

                  • At least this one of the least predictable Oscars in recent memory.

                        • Shouldnt Avatar been up for best animated feature since the only redeeming quality it had was the graphics.
                          And wasnt Inglorious Basterds just like an adaption of the Dirty Dozen?

                              You did this last year too. Randomly pop in afterwards to belittle peoples predictions. Both times mentioning betting or the vegas odds or what have you, as if everyone pays attention to that and therefore knows the odds for every category.

                              I dont care if theyre easy. I dont caaaaaaare. Theres no point in pointing that out. Its like hopping into an NFL pick em thread one week and being like HA! THOSE GAMES WERE EASY TO PICK THIS WEEK!

                              And for the record, as Ive said several times in this thread, I thought Best Pic and Best Director were total locks, No matter what your 'odds' said.

                              Apologies for probably coming off so hostile, that stuff just really bugs me.
