  1. Your comment about not judging a movie before you’ve seen it is probably a prerequisite if you are going to the movie for the purposes of reviewing it. Obviously, you would need to have an open mind.

    However, if you happen to discover the movie’s content or subject matter BEFORE seeing it, I believe that you can decide whether or not you’d have an interest in seeing it based upon those facts. In a way, that is some type of of judgement I suppose, but probably a safe one, the same type of judgement of deciding not shoot heroin (even though you’ve never tried it) because you know what it will do to you.

    That said, I can’t believe that A History Of Violence beat Cinderella Man (I saw both films) for Best Picture.

    Agree or disagree?

    By the way, has anyone ever told you that you have a striking resemblance to Katherine Hepburn?
    (tongue planted firmly in cheek)

  2. You make a good point. I just think that by avoiding certain movies because of their storylines, you may miss out on seeing a great movie. But I’m not here to judge anyone and how they view movies or what movies they like. As long as you practice what you preach, I see no harm in what you do.

    I never saw A History of Violence so I’m probably not the best judge of whether or not it should be nominated for Best Drama Motion Picture. However, I also feel that Cinderella Man was worthy enough of a nomination and I don’t see why the HFPA couldn’t make an exception and have 6 nominees (it happens all the time in other categories.)

    And about my striking resemblence to Katharine Hepburn…. Is that good or bad? I don’t care either way because if anyone thinks I even remotely resemble Kate, I’m happy and that is a huge compliment to me. :)
