I'm a movie freak, maybe even more so than a fish freak. (The Oscars are my Super Bowl, LOL) I've seen every movie you've all mentioned above and the one that you didn't, and that gets my vote for best picture, is "The Hurt Locker". Avatar wowed (I saw it on IMAX 3D) with its special effects, but the story was the same old story, recycled and more nicely packaged. "Inglorious Basterds" was, IMHO, Quentin's best work ever, but not the best on 2009.
Best Documentary, "The Cove". One of the few movies I've ever seen in my lifetime that stayed with me for days and days after seeing it. Hopefully it's nomination for an Academy Award will bring just that much more pressure on the Taiji fisherman of Japan to finally end their annual slaughter of dolphins.
So, while everyone is watching the Super Bowl today I'll be at the movie theatre! It should be nice and uncrowded there today.
