i enjoyed sightseers.
i really didn't like life of pi.
boring, maudlin, overly-simplistic, worthy nonsense.
there was a tiger in it so 3/10.
Pi would have been alright if they hadn't insisted on the Ending for Dummies.
i think peter jackson just doesn't 'do' concise. another director could have done it in one, but not him. I actually quite liked it, especially the 3 stooge-ish ogres.
les mis was surprisingly.....limp
hugh jackman is no alfie bowe.
Saw "End of Watch" the other day. Superb. Funny, thrilling and sad.
@Tom - agree on "In Time". Surprisingly good.
Has anyone seen any of the Oscar winners?
I saw Lincoln, thought it was good and enjoyed Daniel Day Lewis' performance. I was expecting him to get Best Actor (which I thought he deserved) but was also expecting the Academy to lap up the patriotism and award the film Best Director and Best Film. Glad there was a bit more diversity!

Watched Silver Linings Playbook last night. Great original film with fantastic acting from the two leads and another great performance from Bobby Ne Niro. Highly rated and possible female actor Oscar winner.
You picked a winner there! I'm going to see it this week
I've seen all of them. Beasts of the Southern wild was my favourite. it was astounding. pleased for jennifer lawrence though. i too enjoyed silver linings playbook.
I can see why they went for Argo. It was a good, solid all-rounder. It lacks the flaws of the others- Lincoln (corny, too long), Life of Pi (religious, too long), Zero Dark Thirty (right wing, too long), Silver Linings Playbook (sentimental, too short), Django Unchained (violent, too long), les Miserables (a musical with crap singers, too long), Amour (foreign).
I hated Rust and Bone but loved Sightseers. great performances.very funny.
i'd have liked to have seen Matthew Mcconaghey (sp?) nominated for Killer Joe.
I've seen Django too, I really liked it but they could have easily cut the scene with the Aussie cowboys. I wish someone on QTs team had the guts to tell him that he cannot act and is just an embarrassment whenever he is in front of the camera.
Christoph Waltz is great, he deserves Best Supporting Actor (but then I haven't seen any of the other films apart from Skyfall). He had a few Hollywood roles after the last Oscar
I'm glad Jennifer Lawrence won the Oscar for Best Actress too, I think she's really good but was wondering if she'd get hit with the Curse of the Franchise and be forever typecast as that girl from Hunger Games.
Speaking of franchises, I'm glad that Kirstin Stewart got the Worst Actress Razzie for Twilight Wish more people had a sense of humour about the Razzies and went to collect their awards like Halle Berry and Sandra Bullock
Oh! I really liked Rust and Bone too
I actually sort of liked QT in reservoir dogs but yes, he is bad and that was a dreadful scene. The first hour was wonderful, as was the ending, but it should have come an hour early.
I felt a bit sorry for Zero dark Thirty. A genuinely intelligent thriller. went from favourite to zero because of the negative press.
Ill love christophe waltz forever for his part in Carnage.
pleased for Adele too. i like a big calf.
