The Oscars are this Sunday, and I have a feeling The Artist is going to do very well. It's nominated for 10 awards, and if I hadn't lost all my money on the Super Bowl, I'd be placing my bets.
It's so original, and that's hard to find in Hollywood these days. Now everything's either a sequel, or based on a book or inspired by actual events. And if it's not, it's probably a sexy vampire movie.
Who would've thought that a black and white movie with no dialogue would be so popular? It's simple and entertaining. We should've been doing this years ago.
I didn't think a silent movie could hold my attention, but it really did. I liked it so much, I started watching some of my favorite TV shows on mute.
One cast member who definitely deserved an award was Uggie. It's too bad he's not eligible for an Oscar because he's a dog. I can't believe how smart he is. He seemed to understand exactly what was going on in every scene. My dog thinks his tail is a squirrel.
Don't miss this movie. Yes, it's silent and in black and white, but it's entertaining, innovative and a great opportunity to practice lip reading. I knew everything the dog was saying.
