So far, The Life of Pi was the movie I enjoyed most this year.  I find it hard to believe the young man who was the lead actor in that movie was not nominated.  I liked Lincoln, but found it too reverent and contrived for my taste, but it was saved by Lewis' masterful performance.  Will see Lez Miz this weekend.

This is the first I have heard of The Master.  Sounds like a promising movie.

"Django Unchained"????????????  WHY!!!!!!!

I really liked Master.  Have not been in the mood to see Les Miz, I saw the play twice.

Have not heard about Master, either, but Joaquin Phoenix while crazy as a koot is an outstanding actor... 

I don't get Zero Dark Thirty being named at all.  Would think it's between Argo or Lincoln.

In saw Django and actually liked it until about the time the German guy died.  It devolved from there.  Like most Tarantino films, I found it well-made and vicariously entertaining, but then afterwards I felt like I had been watching pornography for a couple of hours.  It's all so gratuitous and pointless.

I am decidedly not a Tarantino fan.

I saw Silver Linings Playbook last weekend and liked it well enough, but up there with the Oscar contender biggies?  Not sure about that--I liked and appreciated Argo a lot more.

I went to see Django after my son told me it was his favorite Tarantino movie.

Didn't care for it that much.  Too long and too long.

For entertainment and a change of pace perhaps it serves the purpose, but no thanks.

Won't see Lincoln because I'm satisfied in the history taught me by the Sisters of Mercy and the Jesuits and Franciscans.  Don't need revisionist history data input (garbage in....)
