B: The one I'm predicting to win: NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN

G: The one that, IMO, belongs in the $1 bin at the Squiggly place ASAP: JUNO

And it's "Best Picture"....

Is spoil-tagging not required?

Just so I know the protocols...

Oops. Forgot spoilers. I'll remember next time.

I think it is better NOT to spoil tag, in order to mimic the feel of the ancient bored.

At any rate

Atonement and There Will Be Blood did not get a mention.

$1 at Squiggly has something like $125 Million so far.

And I aint seen any of them...

8-8 points

Q2 as next post, in 2 minutes

Q2 - SWEET, SWEET BABY

B - Which of these sweet boxers is a major antagonist to Jake Lamotta in the ought-to-have-been Best Picture, "Raging Bull"

1 - Ray Robinson
2 - Ray Leonard
3 - Emille Griffith
4 - Benny Paret

G - What somewhat cloying sweet song does Julie Andrews use to manipulate like the dickens, as Mary Poppins.

(extra credit for which Aretha song uses the header for this question, and was released just a little under 40 years ago from now)

Popular <> Good

FTR, it's really not bad...but it's hardly Best Picture material. Ellen Page is very good, as is the rest of the cast...but the story's slight, the direction more quirky than quality, and the score sucks eggs.

All MHO, of course.

B: 1

G: Geez, there are so many to choose from. But "sweet" leads me to "A Spoonful of Sugar"

I got nuthin' on the Aretha song...but it ain't R-E-S-P-E-C-T or Freeway of Love.

FTR, "Feed the Birds" from MARY POPPINS is one of my all-time favorite movie songs.

Shouldn't someone be posting a thread about shoes right about now?

I miss the old non sequitur threads on the old bored....

well, a lead is established for the boys.

16-13.

Sugar Ray Robinson.

Spoonful of Sugar.

Emile Griffith killed Benny "The Kid" Paret in the ring, but that is another story for another day.

One each for Since You've Been Gone, a song I love and love and love.

Can't help you there. Unless you want to talk about sneakers, one pair of dress shoes, and a beatup pair of slippers.
