As you no doubt remember my award winning blog about how I can't stand awards shows, The Oscars are at the bottom of the list. So I will suggest an extremely bizarre alternative to the 4 hours of flash and phoniness. Watch a great movie instead!

About every five years or so, I watch a movie. About every twenty years I actually like one. And here's a trailer for one I just watched that made the grade...

It is not without some flaws, the first half hour is pretty slow, I had a tough time figuring out some of the dialogue and there are many questions left unanswered. But it is definitely worth watching and I never say that about anything.
