Finally, there's new commentary on the American Idol page here, so check it out and keep abreast of what's going on with the show!
-Thoughts on the new article, Historical Circuit review, and Idol commentary?


  1. I'm surprised that there is a such a strong base of support for Up in the Air on the internet. I would have thought that there would be more of a backlash against it once audiences found out that the film isn't really about the recession or our economic times as advertised.

  2. Oh, and since John Foote has now reviewed Saving Private Ryan, may I suggest a look at The Thin Red Line? It was released in the same year as, competed at the Oscars with, and is to this day frequently compared to Spielberg's war epic.

  3. Well, it depends on how you look at it. I found it to be the best film of the year and did reflect elements of the recession and our economic times, but no, it's not the primary focus of the film.

  4. And I could definitely see one of us tackling The Thin Red Lone...

  5. I said what I feel about Up in the Air yesterday, but at least your sticking to your guns Joey. And I wholeheartedly agree about your shout out to Paul Schneider. Good year for supporting actor, too bad it was such a wasteland for some of the nominees *cough* Matt Damon *cough*. Top 3 would be Waltz, Mackie and Schneider in that category.

  6. If nothing else, I do try to stay consistent.

    As for Supporting Actor, I think this would have been my five nominees in an ideal world:

    1. Christoph Waltz in Inglourious Basterds
    2. Paul Schneider in Bright Star
    3. Anthony Mackie in The Hurt Locker
    4. Christian McKay in Me and Orson Welles
    5. Peter Sarsgaard in An Education
