oscar nominations

Oscar Nominations announced today.

I thought there were some surprises. I thought that Paul Giammatti would get nominated for "Sideways". He didn't. "The Aviator" got a lot more nominations than I expected too. I still haven't seen that movie. I haven't put out any new no clue reviews either in a while. UGH! I was glad to see Jamie Foxx get nominated. Both for "Ray" (where he was amazing) and for "Collateral" (excellent). I was also disappointed that "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" didn't get a Best picture nod. It did receive some other noms though, Best Actress Kate Winslet and Best Original Screenplay.

All in all, it was a pretty good movie year and there were some well deserved nominations. Of course, there are more folks who deserve it too, but they can't all be nominated I guess. Lead actress nominee Catalina Sandino Moreno for "Maria Full Of Grace" must have been surprised. But she was excellent in the film. Too bad that Uma Thurman didn't get a nom for "Kill Bill Vol. 2".

Oh well, I'll be watching and have some predictions up in a few weeks. Anyway, check out the full list of nominees and get ready for Oscar Night on Feb. 27.

new year, new blog

I decided to convert the no clue news portion of the site into an easier to update blog. I hope you like it. For those that are interested, I'm using blogger.com. It's very easy and has a nice interface. I'll dump the old news into one post soon. The best part about doing the news this way is that you can easily post comments and search for items.

I will get back to doing some updates soon. Until then, here's 3 movies you should consider renting:
Maria Full of Grace - very very excellent movie.
Hitman's Code - directed by my friend David Craig and shot on HD 24 p. Formerly titled "The Face of the Serpent".
The Falls - directed by Paul DeNigris and shot on mini DV. It looks great. Filmed in Buffalo, NY.

Talk to you soon.
