@tsarstepan,
I have Last Train Home saved in my queue, too. I think you'd also enjoy Discovery Atlas: China Revealed (it's on streaming, in HD!)

Quote:
Through breathtaking cinematography and personal stories from locals, delve into the people, culture and landscape that make up China, and witness the enormous changes happening in a civilization that dates back more than six millennia. From a rice farmer in a rural village to a construction magnate in Shanghai, viewers will meet a broad cross section of China's people that will illuminate the richness of modern life in this wondrous country.

@tsarstepan,
BREAKING NEWS:
The King's Speech just ran off with the highly coveted Producer's Guild Award for Best Picture over the expected Social Network juggernaut.

Quote:
The last three Producers Guild winners – “The Hurt Locker,” “Slumdog Millionaire” and “No Country for Old Men” – have gone on to win the Academy Award for Best Picture. In the 21-year history of the awards, two-thirds of PGA winners have won the Oscar.

@tsarstepan,
'The King's Speech' wins the DGA awards
http://insidemovies.ew.com/2011/01/30/the-kings-speech-wins-the-dga-awards/

So Tom Hopper gets the big Feature Film direction prize from the Director's Guild.... Hmm....

The King's Speech has almost hit its terminal velocity. Might have the momentum to bowl over its greatest rival this year The Social Network.

@tsarstepan,
You're most welcome. I'm going to try to watch it along with a few other things before I make my choices (mostly uninformed choices - I'll have to wing it) in your voting thread.

Let me start the new preOscar season with my first great Oscar cause:
Owen Wilson (lead) and Marion Cotillard (supporting) deserve to be nominated for their parts in the latest Woody Allen film, Midnight In Paris .

A great film to rival Woody Allen's best Annie Hall, Manhattan, Mighty Aphrodite.

A great year so far. My proudest Urban Dictionary submission has been submitted and approved last week.

Quote:
Oscarbuster 1 thumb up

{os-ker-buhs-ter}
noun
a cinematically manipulated Hollywood studio produced motion picture, especially one lavishly produced melodrama, that has or is expected to boldly WOW the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and subsequently obtain a Best Picture Oscar award for the studio and film producers.

Similar to: Oscar Bait

@tsarstepan,
Congratulations, Tsar!!!

Is that a real movie being made or did you just make that up for the purpose of giving us a definition example?

Clever Smile

When an actor loses a lot of weight, or plays a historical figure, or takes on a character with a terrible disease, the dreaded term “Oscar bait” is sure to rear its head. With the Dallas Buyers Club, Matthew McConaughey hit the trifecta: He stars as Ron Woodroof, a Texas man who died from an AIDS-related illness in 1992.
