I like to see as many of the movies nominated for awards as possible 1.) because it's a great excuse to catch up on recent releases. 2.) Seeing a lot of movies also adds to the annual pagan celebration of gods and goddesses. 3.) I like to compare movies not nominated and if I think the nominated movies aren't as good or worthy as the ones not nominated I nurture my feeling of umbrage with the whole system poetically. And with cuss words. In the middle of rounding out the list of Oscar nominated movies to watch...what a total treat to see Tropic Thunder. I laughed so much during this movie that I missed some of the lines and will have to see it again. Robert Downey Jr. is nominated for a supporting Oscar playing a white guy acting in a black man's role. I often forgot it was even him in the movie. Seriously, some of the movies nominated for Oscar's are so depressing, even Rachel Getting Married which is romance slash drama slash comedy was exhausting (it's very good though!)...we were really happy to see something funny. Tropic Thunder: reminded me of Nam. 10/10.
I wrote down some of the lines from this movie and will be using them in daily conversation for a long time. "Man, I don't drop character till I'm done the dvd commentary."
Kirk Lazarus: Can I tell you that I'm sorry for any offense I might've caused, man? I just got caught up in...
Alpa Chino: In being a dumbass?
Kirk Lazarus: I guess so.
Alpa Chino: Why you still doing this Chicken George shit, I have no idea.
Kirk Lazarus: Neither do I. It's beyond me.
Alpa Chino: It's beyond me.
Kirk Lazarus: It's beyond me.
Alpa Chino: You confused.
Kirk Lazarus: I am a little confused.
Alpa Chino: I know.
Kirk Lazarus: But are we cool?
Alpa Chino: Not really.
