    Good morning, Vagabonds.

    Not much to say this early. Off to get some shut-eye.

    Good morning, Villagers…
    I am still working on my computer analysis of Top Ten movies for 2012, and what I have come up with at this point is that Lincoln and Zero Dark Thirty will both be nominated and one of those two films will win the Oscar. Runner up (and will probably be nominated): Argo. Possibilities: Amour, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Django Unchained, Life of Pi, Silver Linings Playbook. Longshot: The Master. The Academy Award nominees will be announced on Jan. 10, but we won’t know until Feb. 24 if I nailed the Best Picture Oscar (as 1 of the 2 films in bold above).

    Good Morning, Vagabonds,

    Had a lovely drive up the canyons to Great Falls. MMM did his platelet donation, and today, after our leisurely breakfast, we’ll hit a few stores that we don’t have at home.

    Will watch for your predictions, Florchi. Really looking forward to seeing Lincoln. Have heard from quite a few people that they loved it.

    I think it is great fun to do exactly what you are doing. All the analysis and calculating are a reward unto themselves.
    That being said, I find that the most unpleasant, politically correct film is usually the one that wins. Therefore, I predict Zero Dark Thirty will get the statuette.

    We went to see “The Hobbit” last weekend. BORING! They added so much that isn’t in the book (which I read recently) that it became an overly long, jumbled story with lots of action scenes mixed in. They even reverse who did what to whom in one of the final action scenes of the film. Jackson wanted to split it into another trilogy, so he added a lot of stuff that Tolkien never thought of. The original story would have made a terrific movie. The padded version, not so much.
    I still want to see “Lincoln” and now add “Hitchcock” to that list.

    Factoring in that The Hurt Locker (Bigelow) won the Best Movie Oscar for 2008, I am predicting it will be played up as a contest between Lincoln (Spielberg) and Zero Dark Thirty (also Bigelow), but that Lincoln will win. That is, unless Argo is a surprise win (the folks that are going to be voting seem to like Ben Affleck). Like Zero, Argo is based on a true CIA secret-operation story. While the critics have Lincoln & Zero in a tie for the top film, I would be surprised to see a second film from Bigelow & Boal, the same director & writer, take the statue just 4 years after their Best Movie win in 2008. I don’t think Spielberg has taken home a best picture statue since 1993 (Schindler’s List).
    So, if I were in Las Vegas, I’d put my money on Lincoln! And yes, all of this analyzing to calculate the January nominees and February winner is great fun! :-)

    Re. The mixed up stuff in the "Hobbit. You shoud know, after watching a movie based on a book you have read,
    the movie makers sometimes indulge in what they call artistic license.
    I watched “Troy” again recently because I had met a lady named Cassandra. I was fascinated by Greek mythology in my younger years, and was familiar with the story of Cassandra in Homer’s Iliad. Daughter of king Priam of Troy. Priestess in Athena’s Temple, etc.
    Anyway, the only thing the movie had in common with the story was the names of the principles and the “Trogan Horse”. Artistic license at it’s worst..

    Good morning, everyone. Bigo was cancelled yesterday – only 4 people showed up. I have 209 pages left in the 777-page speudo-genealogicalical book, “The Book of Abraham.”

    Hello Villagers: Brrrr. It’s sunny, but in the mid-fifties here in So. Fla. this morning, with the expected high today in the mid-sixties. However,after looking at Internet photos of conditions in the Northeast, I’m not complaining. I had a nice walk in the park and when I drove by the Aquatics Center (on the way to my parking place under the orchid tree), I could see that there were a lot of swimmers in the Olympic-size lap pool.

    @Florchi: Temps in the mid-sixties are spring like weather here. I wish we had them, even the fifties, so that I don’t have to shovel the snow, it will just melt. Look at all the fun you are missing. LOL

    Good Morning, Vagabonderanians,

    Back from the cold north…….actually we are about 5 degrees colder than Great Falls. Had a lovely time, and spent lots of “little” money on after Christmas sales……..especially Bath & Body Works. It is the closest store to us, and we try to time the Red Cross visits with the “Big” sale.

    Watched a movie favorite last night…………………

    Gregory Peck, Jean Simmons, Charleston Heston, Burl Ives
    …….cattle ranchers fighting over water for their cows in Texas.
    Strangely, it is supposed to be a Texas story, it was filmed in the San Juaquin Valley and Mojave desert in Calif., and Canyon de Chelley in Arizona. Worked, though.
    Fantastic score!

    Name that movie!
