    You heard it. A person would give up being a human to become a tall and blue humanoid that expresses itself exactly like humans do.

    Most of these cats (no pun intended) are former WoW addicts.

    The forum is really, really interesting. But not interesting like super bad-ass generals of history, but interesting as a midget with a tumor 3/4 the size of its body.

    The Blind Side - Didn't see it.

    District 9 - Loved it.

    An Education - Didn't see it.

    The Hurt Locker - This is my pick. This came out of nowhere and blew me away.

    Inglourious Basterds - In my opinion, pretty mediocre. I fell asleep watching it.

    Precious - Didn't see it.

    A Serious Man -Didn't see it.

    Up - Great film.

    Up in the Air - Didn't see it.

    I cannot believe there is an entire forum that wants to **** the animated feline-humanoid from a movie.

    Precious - Didn't see it.

    The Hurt Locker gets my vote, but I think it will be a toss-up between THL and Precious. I'm surprised District 9 even made it onto the list.

    Haven't watched any of these, but I voted for INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS, just for the hell of it.

    Re: Oscar Pics - BEST PICTURE

    Avatar - Great movie, it's a bit derivative but so is every other movie on earth. Should win.

    The Blind Side - Sandra Bullock ****ing sucks and you can't make a movie about a football success story before the guy is actually a success.

    District 9 - This was a legitimately great movie. Far more original than Avatar, but just overall not as impressive.

    An Education - No idea.

    The Hurt Locker - Movie was terrible. Entirely unrealistic and set up as basically a "woo look war is CRAZY! it makes people CRAZY! lets wrassel."

    Inglourious Basterds - Brad Pitt is a taint.

    Precious - Didn't see it, but they took a huge chance on this picture and I think that should be respected.

    A Serious Man - No idea.

    Up - Awesome movie, but kids movies just don't win.

    Up in the Air - No idea, but Clooney is a ****eating douchebag.
