Saw Promised Land and you're right it was good, worthwhile, but a 1 time event.

Haven't seen Zero Dark Thirty yet. Wife's not interested, will have to wait. Like to see it though ! Damon was good but not exceptional.

Did see Lincoln and Les Mise'rables - both great. I suspect 1 of those will get BP Oscar. Saw Life of Pi- good but not BP. BUT there's many I haven't seen yet. Would like to see Argo & Beasts of the Southern Wild... not sure about the others.

WTF did they nominate SO many for BP ? - I thought it was limited to 5 !! crazy
