I can honestly say that I haven't seen a single film that's mentioned in the oscar nominations. Yet I waste two hours of my life sitting through Fantastic 4.

I need to get some more culture...

Don't feel bad. I haven't seen any of them either. And, most importantly, I don't feel that I'm missing out on anything. There apparently is a huge disconnect between Hollywood and myself on what constitues a "good" movie that I would want to see. Hardly any of those qualify. Although I did enjoy March of the Penquins.

Brokeback Mountain is absolutely worth seeing; as is Munich. I wasn't a huge fan of Crash. I haven't yet seen the other best picture contenders. My taste in movies seems to run in spurts. For a few months, I'll watch mostly action movies. Then, I'll get a hankerin' for some film noir. After that, I might rent a science fiction movie every week.

Most of the Oscar contenders come out in the winter, and I'll usually hear good things about one of them, and I'll intend to go see it, but I'll wait and make excuses not to go. Before I start going to see the movies that come out in "Oscar season," it's more like staring at a plate of lima beans than a Snickers bar. Once I finally go to the first one, I'll love it and quickly go to see several more. I almost always enjoy the experience when I go to see an "art film," but it sometimes takes me a while to work myself into the mood to actually go. It isn't until I've been reminded with the first one of the season that I remember how much I like the experience.

In my opinion, the Academy usually misses several good movies due to genre and studio prejudice, but the movies that they choose are almost always excellent. (Gosford Park is a noteworthy exception to this rule. :D )

On the other hand, two hours spent watching Jessica Alba in spandex can't be considered a waste; culture be damned. :D

True. There was a scene near the beginning when they're in the changing rooms and Jessica Alba's showing off a lot of cleavage. I saw the film with a friend and when that scene came on all he said was "What's she got against zips?"
