    Let's do a poll leading up to the Oscars on the 27th.
    I know most of us didn't see all of these movies, but what the heck.

    This question is :

    Among movies nominated for Best Picture, which TWO did you like best?



    Maybe I'll use this to help me weed through the 5-6 I have not even seen yet. I'll see a couple more before the Oscars, so I'll vote later.

    I voted for Inception and True Grit...the only other movie I've seen in this list is Toy Story 3.

    I'm going to watch King's Speech soon....I've heard nothing but great things about it.

    I don't understand the love for true grit. It was a re-make!!! And it wasn't better than the original. You can't replace the duke.

    The one on that list I have seen is Inception. It was good but I wouldn't say it's oscar worthy.

    I've seen Black Swan, Inception, Winter's Bone, King's Speech, True Grit and Social Network.

    I voted for Inception and King's Speech. I surprised myself by going with King's Speech over True Grit. Winter's Bone was a good movie as well.

    There comes a time and place that a movie can and should be redone....it shouldn't be viewed as a replacement or a critical view of the original IMO, but rather an homage to something that was special enough that newer generations should be introduced to it. That wouldn't happen without an updated version....

    Bridges is outstanding, and the remake was very good.

    I've seen:
    The Fighter
    Inception
    The King's Speech
    The Social Network
    Toy Story 3

    I would put it in this order:
    Inception
    The King's Speech
    Toy Story 3
    Social Network
    Fighter

    --

    I refuse to watch 127 hours because the real guy is an idiot.

    The Social Network
    Black Swan
    127 Hours
    True Grit
    Toy Story 3 (HTTYD so much better)

    If we are talking animated movies,

    Despicable Me is hands down the best, HTTYD was great too. TS3 just finished a wonderful series.

    You either have the wrong kind of cup or the wrong kind of pills.

    I've only seen three on the list. Chose Inception and Social Network.

    Was a close call between Social Network and Winter's Bone for the second choice. Probably just came down to the pacing of those two.
