THE INSULTIN' OF TOMEI!
Last week I stayed up late and watched a bunch of movies. Why?
I am getting ready for my annual OSCAR wager with the Sultan Of Brunei...
why you little..
Now I am not one to boast but I haven't had to phone my Banker in the Caymans to request a transfer in over 5 years..and I don't intend on losing one thin dime this year either...
not like the bundle Marisa Tomei cost me back in '92...
hence the title.
The fact that not one of the 50 highest grossing movies was nominated makes it a little tricky trying to predict a winner. Just between you, me and barn door, I use FBI profilers.
That's right. Even though the movie studios now cater almost exclusively to teen males, the majority of the eligible Academy voters are all 3 days older than kerosene. Plus there is almost as much money spent on the Nomination Campaign as there is on the actual production. So there is a lot more to it than meets the eye.
Hollywood only made $9.6 Billion at the Box Office in 2007, and Home DVD sales slipped to $23.7 Billion. ((sob)) Whatever. I still happen to believe that Movies are the best form of Entertainment ..fully clothed entertainment.
Did you know that Video Game sales in 2007 reached $17.94 BILLION...HELLO! No wonder the Media Conglomerates LOVE those Teen Males.
Anyway here is what I watched last week...
Oh did I mention that Monica Bellucci was in Shoot 'Em Up?
Do you care about the Oscars?
