Should Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close Taken A Nomination?

I probably should have read the reviews before, then I would see Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close probably shouldn’t have received the nomination.

I probably should see the film before I be the judge of whether it should be nominated or not, but the movie wasn’t very well reviewed (it got a 45% on Rotten Tomatoes). Most critics complained it was too sentimental about it’s subject.

I explained back in September it’s hard making a movie off 9/11.  Remember Reign Over Me or World Trade Center?  Probably not.

It’s sad, really, because the movie is filled with such talented people.  The film stars two Academy Award winners and great actors, Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock.  It has a script written by Eric Roth, who wrote Forrest Gump.  Steven Daldry direects the film, and he has also made The Reader and Billy Elliot.  And Scott Rudin, perhaps the best producer in Hollywood, produced the film.

I feel disappointed about this because I’ve been anxiously waiting Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close for months.  I’ll try to see it over the weekend to be the judge of whether it should have been nominated for Best Picture.



  1. I am anxious to see this movie – will be interested in what you think of it after you see it this weekend
