    Avatar- Same old story in a new set of cloths, nothing really fantastic about it.

    The Blind Side- Didn't see it

    District 9- Great movie, loved it. Should be one of the top choices.

    An Education- Didn't see it

    The Hurt Locker- Didn't see it

    Inglourious Basterds- Awesome movie, right up there with District 9

    Precious- Didn't see it

    A Serious Man- Didn't see it

    Up- This shouldn't even be on the best picture list, it wasn't all that good in the first place.

    Up in the Air- Didn't see it

    Re: Oscar Pics - BEST PICTURE

    Inglourious Basterds, because the Hurt Locker felt like an HBO Movie and not a feature film, and because I already saw Avatar when it was called Pocahontas.

    The others are just great flicks to fill out the category, but not really to be taken seriously as the most original great film representative of this year in American cinema.

    The Blind Side, are you serious?

    Inglourious Basterds was just a fun, shoot em up movie, it was great.

    I didn't vote because I'm torn between that and District 9.

    Inglorious Basterds.

    Avatar was good, but what it did to the minds of those over at the Avatar forums is repulsive. Some of them are clinically depressed because there is no Pandora (I **** you not).

    Avatar - Excellent graphics, but mediocre otherwise. Very derivative.

    The Blind Side - Haven't seen it.

    District 9 - Overrated.

    An Education - Haven't seen it.

    The Hurt Locker - Haven't seen it.

    Inglourious Basterds - Excellent movie. Not quite what I expected from Tarantino, but excellent all the same.

    Precious - Haven't seen it.

    A Serious Man - Haven't seen it.

    Up - Another excellent movie. Depressing as hell, but great all the same.

    Up in the Air - Haven't seen it.

    So of the ones I've seen it's a toss up between Up and Inglourious Basterds.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    You should check out this thread:

    what would you do if you were a na'vi? - Avatar-Forums.com


    For starters the title of the thread is "What would you do if you were navi"

    and the OP is "I would do every thin if i was a na'vi

    i would give up everythin to become a na'vi".

    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.
