Preach it!

I cannot agree more with this article. Every single word of it is true. Well, I didn't see The Pursuit of Happyness but that's more because I didn't care for it, but I still agree. If that movie was released in 1979 instead of Kramer vs Kramer I am positive we'd be discussing it as a Best Picture winner. Alas...

Also, there's a reason why The Devil Wears Prada will be in my Best Picture lineup when I get around to it. I've decided to go with titles that really fired me up this year. Sure, so-and-so-serious movie may be technically better, but Prada? I've watched it five times in the span of half a year. That's passion. And it's also why The Black Dahlia will most likely be in my Top 10.

...but that's for a couple of months down the road when I've seen all the titles I want to.
