I know it seems like it has been forever since an update. In fact, it has been forever. It was a whole other year. No. I take that back. It was a different decade! That's a damn long time. This past sunday was the first awards show of the season, the Golden Globes. Unlike last year's ceremony No one movie dominated like Slumdog Millionaire which actually won for things it wasn't even nominated for last year. It was kinda weird.
Avatar won 2 awards and is the big winner of the night. James Cameron, Uber-Director, was the big loser of the night for announcing that he had to pee something fierce. All in favor that was a little TMI say Aye!. That's what I thought. And talk about awkward. When James Cameron won for best director, he beat his ex wife Kathryn Bigelow director of The Hurt Locker.
The best speech of the night had to be Robert Downey Jr. for his "I am not thanking anyone, including the following people" speech. The man can do no wrong these days. Well except for the movie "The Soloist". We will forgive him for that. The best moment of the night? Ricky Gervais's comment... "I like beer as much as the next guy. Unless the next guy is Mel Gibson. Here's Mel Gibson to present!" I was waiting for Mel to call him sugar tits.
Is it bad that I have no plans to see Avatar? It looks impressive, sure.... but to me it looks like "Hey, this is what computers can do these days and the story is... eh". First off the movie is too long. I have ADHD sometimes so sitting still for 5 hours to watch a glorified cartoon just isn't going to happen. And two, I dont go to my movies to be preached to which is what I heard this movie is. I heard a rumor it was produced by Al Gore.
I am going to go on record and face the backlash now, I am not a fan of James Cameron. In fact, in all the movies and TV shows I own on DVD.... the only thing I have of James Cameron..... He appeared in several episodes of Entourage as himself. I never even watched Titanic, and I plan to keep it that way.
This just in... in the time you were reading this.... Avatar just made another gazillion dollars. It's a good thing Cameron only makes a movie every ten years.... so in 2019 we get Avatar 2! Just imagine what he can do with those graphics and special effects!
In other news, I thought I would weight in on the whole Leno-Conan. I could sum it all in 3 words... CONAN GOT SCREWED!.
And I make a solemn vow to update more then just once a decade! Coming soon!
