Re: Movies Seen in 2011

Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightening Thief - HBO
Tron Legacy 3D - theater
Clash of the Titans (2010) - HBO on Demand
Take Me Home Tonight - free screenin'
Sanctum - free screenin'
The Green Hornet - free screenin'
Green Zone - HBO
Fantastic Mr. Fox - HBO
True Grit (1969) - AMC
Ringu - DVD
Black Swan - Alamo Drafthouse (its not just a movie theater)

I wanted to swing by the Drafthouse for a matinee while I'm here in Austin, and wound up seein' Black Swan. Natalie Portman is now the ony "best actress" Oscar nominee I've seen, so I hope she gets it.

What I don't get is this...she was in every scene of the movie, and so was the actress that starred in True Grit, but the True Grit actress got a "best supporting actress" nomination. WTF is that about?!?

Anyway, Black Swan...that movie was a trip, and the way the sound added to the disorientation (don't know if its the same everywhere, but offscreen chatter really maked use of single speakers off to the sides, rather than every speaker). I don't think it should get "best picture" or "best director," though.
