  4 Out of 7 Isn’t Bad!
Posted by: Katy on Feb 26th, 2007 Leave a Comment »

Hey everyone!

It’s the day after the Oscars, and let me say: Wow!

I correctly predicted 4 out of 7 awards, which I’m pretty proud of!

Some thoughts about the show:

Ellen DeGeneres did well as host this year. She had her super-funny moments, but kept it tasteful. I especially liked her vacuuming the rug and asking Penelope Cruz to move her huge-ass dress! Bring her back next year!

Easily, my favorite moments:

Will Ferrell, Jack Black and John C. Reilly’s number. Jack was spastic, as always, which is what we love about him. They should go out on tour!

The Dreamgirls triple divas triple threat. Talk about powerhouse vocals! I’m surprised that the Kodak Theatre didn’t quake for another hour after that! Amazing!

Helen Mirren looked positively stunning. The lady was so gracious during her acceptance speech, she deserves an extra trophy!

Martin Scorsese FINALLY getting the Academy Award for Best Director and a just as well deserved standing ovation.

A huge, huge congratulations to all of the big winners last night!




  And the winner is…

Helen MirrenLast night’s Academy Awards were less about the winners and their fantastic outfits, and more about the sheer pleasure in being nominated. Host Ellen DeGeneres applauded the nominees and brought out a full gospel choir to serenade them. This year, for the first time it seemed the phrase “It’s an honor just to be nominated” was actually true.

It should be an honor just to be nominated. For the rest of your life you are known as “Oscar Nominee so-and-so”. You will forever be in a class of actors and movie professionals above the rest of Hollywood.

This year, especially, it must have been wonderful just to be nominated. In a year when Dame Judy Dench tells gamblers not to bet on her for Best Actress, you know the competition is fierce. Of course, the good Dame was right, as another British Dame won that coveted title. Helen Mirren took home the golden statue for her performance in The Queen.

  Babel blows, and I’m not afraid to say it

I’m glad I’m not the only person who thought Babel sucked serious suckage.   Apparently the Academy agreed with me, and decided the only award it was worth giving, was for “Achievement in music written for motion pictures”.   Is that even a real award?   It sounds like something someone’s mom made up for them, when they didn’t win any real awards.

Did you also hate Babel?   I did.  Click here to read my review, and see how much I really hated the movie.

If you haven’t seen it yet, don’t bother. Read my review, and you’ll see why.

  Reno 911!: Miami

Reno 911!: Miami Review

Reno 911!: Miami

Based on the hit show shown on Comedy Central, the deputies of the Reno Sheriff’s Department are invited to attend a law enforcement convention in Miami.

Now the cast of characters are so out there, they definitely need to be described. Jim Dangle (Thomas Lennon) is the head of the department and has chopped up his regulation uniform into one tight pair of short-shorts; Clementine Johnson (Wendi McLendon-Covey), the resident blonde sexpot who always likes to have her cleavage on display; Raineesha Jones (Niecy Nash), the outspoken woman who doesn’t thing she’s got it, she knows it; Travis Junior (Robert Ben Garant), who ends up as Ethel to Dangle’s Lucy in various schemes; Trudy Wiegel (Kerry Kenney-Silver), who’s not terribly sharp and harbors a BIG lust for Dangle. Rounding out the group: S. Jones (Cedric Yarbrough), James Garcia (Carlos Alazraqui), and Cherisha Kimball (Mary Birdsong). Now these three are not as prominent as the others, but they have their moments.

Anyway, once they get down to Florida, surprise, they’re not on the list for the convention. Nor does it seem that anyone really wants them there. So,they think all is lost. Au contraire! After every police officer at the convention is quarantined for some random biohazard, Dangle and the gang step up to the plate. With Miami’s streets protected by this lot, hilarity and chaos are guaranteed.

I don’t think I’ve seen a complete episode of the TV show, but then again, I probably didn’t need to. For the most part, this is lowbrow, slapstick humor. I laughed really hard at certain parts, but I chuckled throughout most of it. Keep your eyes open for cameos from some big names. If you want another movie that you can sit back and just watch, without using your brain, this is one for you.
