Classic scene from one of the greatest movies of all time. I think people occasionally quote this film while on the golf course.

Entertainment Weekly has some first look photos of Iron Man 2. For some stupid reason I didn’t realize that Scarlett Johansson was in it. I think I had partially written her because of her awful singing. Oh well she looks pretty good here dressed as Black Widow. What a sexy name for a character? Saucy.
Gorgeous. I think we’re a week away from the new Harry Potter. I’m excited. It’s been a weak summer for movies. I’m also eager to see 500 Days of Summer with Joseph Gordon-Levitt & Zooey Deschanel. It’s getting solid reviews.
Best. Movie. Ever.
I’m so glad someone else thinks these movies are as miserable as I do.
I realize I’m now running out of time, so I’m going to run down the last three major categories. Here we go:
BEST ACTRESS NOMINEES: Cate Blanchett (Elizabeth: The Golden Age), Ellen Page (Juno), Laura Linney (The Savages), Marion Cotillard (La Vie En Rose), Julie Christie (Away From Her)
Winner: Who cares. Who’s seen any of these movies besides Juno. Ellen Page deserves it for getting people back in theaters but I’m told Marion Cotillard is awesome in La Vie En Rose. Again who cares. I’m not gonna rent it. Are you?
BEST ACTOR NOMINEES: George Clooney (Michael Clayton), Daniel Day-Lewis (There Will Be Blood), Johnny Depp (Sweeney Todd), Tommy Lee Jones (In The Valley of Elah), Viggo Mortensen (Eastern Promises)
Winner: Without a question Daniel Day-Lewis. Without him There Will Be Blood would have been absolutely nothing.
BEST PICTURE NOMINEES: Atonement, Juno, Michael Clayton, No Country For Old Men, There Will Be Blood
Winner: I loved all of these movies except for There Will Be Boredom. This is a hard category to pick. No Country For Old Men was my favorite movie of the year, so I’m going to stay with it here. If there were to be an upset I believe it’d go to Michael Clayton.
I know I know Will Farrell’s shtick is getting really old, but I really like these ads. I’ve got to give him mad props for wearing those short shorts. I couldn’t wear ’em if you know what I’m saying (wink wink).
And the nominees for Best Actor In A Supporting Role are:
Let me start by saying I love all these movies – they’re all great films – but there’s really no contest in this category. Javier Bardem is the best villain since Anthony Hopkins’ Hannibal Lector in Silence of the Lambs – which is a shame since every single actor nominated here deserves an award. He steals every scene his in.
SHOULD WIN: Javier Bardem
WILL WIN: Javier Bardem
UPSET POTENTIAL: It’s highly unlikely there will be an upset here but Tom Wilkinson is absolutely perfect as Arthur Edens in Michael Clayton.
