More Oscar Crap I forgot and Teenage Crime Wave

There a few other oscar things I forgot to mention mostly good. I think

-Precious marks the first time EVER that a best picture nominee was directed by an african american. (yeah do the right thing was not nominated but don't worry they let driving miss daisy win instead)

- it's only the second time a black man has been nominated for best director. the other nominee was John Singleton. (yeah Spike Lee has never been nominated for best director)

-This only the fourth time a woman has been nominated

-The Secret of Kells came out of nowhere to get a best animated feature nomination. I'm sure both the Cloudy with a chance of meatballs people and dreamworks are kinda pissed. (also The Secret of Kells looks really awesome i really really really wanna see it on the big screen)

I have actually seen all the best picture nominees. here's the order in quality from best to worst. I'm a little mixed about the middle section but the top and bottom are totally true.

1. UP
2. The Hurt Locker
3. A Serious Man
4. Avatar
5. District 9
6. Up in the Air
7. Precious
8. Inglourious Basterds
9. An Education
10. The Blind Side

So I went in to this thinking it would be a stupid movie. and to be honest I liked it alot more then I thought I would. It's about 3 bad kids. well really it's bad two bad kids who make this other girl go with them. even though she is good. Most likely this was really great beating off material for the writer when it was written. Espically since the innocent girl is way hotter then the bad girl. I'm sure the writer however had little to no choice in casting.
It's funny to think that in the 50's this was how they would protray a bad kid. I almost expected them to blame rock and roll and comic books. It also reminds me of how far we have come rock and roll once dangerous sells medication to old people. So really there view of danger isn't like Boyz n the hood or anything.
Sure this isn't really a teenage crime wave cause it's only like 3 people and i found out later this was on mystery science theater. but it really is alot of fun. the whole time I was watching it i was really into. Now I realise this isn't a good movie really but it sure was enjoyable and from a film called Teenage crime wave that's really all you need.
