Okay...if I was a member of the deciding jury, I'd just give it to "Ratatouille" and call it a day!
The animated rat flick is the best animated film this year...so far!
The Academy (AMPAS) must sort through 12, yes, 12 films!
BUT THEY MUST WHITTLE IT DOWN TO THREE FILMS...MAXIMUM!!! HHHHMMMM....I'D SAY..."RATATOUILLE," "BEOWULF," "THE SIMPSONS."
Here's a list of the submitted animated flicks so far!
"AQUA TEEN HUNGER FORCE COLON MOVIE FILM FOR THEATERS"
"MEET THE ROBINSONS"
"SHREK THE THIRD"
"THE SIMPSONS MOVIE"

'Tis the season for Oscar contenders, and one of those hopefuls is "Reservation Road" by Focus Features.
Great cast including Joaquin Phoenix, Jennifer Connely, Mira Sorvino, and Mark Ruffalo.
Connely deserves a Best Supporting Actress nomination!
What do I think of the film?
Check it out!

When I watch a new film, I always hope, in the deep recesses of my mind, that it will turn out to be a good movie. Seeing a flick deeply affects my mood, especially if I have to drive to Los Angeles to watch it.
If it’s a good flick, then I’m on cloud nine, but if it’s a bad movie, you will not want to drive with me. While “Fred Claus” is not horrible, it’s a stinker enough to put me in a bad mood from now until Christmas.

Billy Bob Thornton just signed on to join the cast of "Eagle Eye," starring Shia LaBeouf, Michelle Monaghan, and Rosario Dawson.
The flick is going to be directed by D.J. Caruso.
The thriller is about a mom (Monaghan) and her son (LaBeouf) who have been mistaken as terrorists, and now, must carry out a political assassination.
Sounds intriguing -- just don't let Shia into any drugstore on location!

Mike Newell, the guy who gave us "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire," one of the best in the series, is directing "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time."
It's a live-action pic based on the popular videogame!
Disney is hoping that this will spawn numerous sequels, since the vidgame has several spinoffs.
