Default 2012 Best Actor Oscar race just got exciting.....

Went and saw Argo tonight (excellent) and the re-vamped "Gangster Squad" trailer was shown. They had to edit the theatre scene after what happened in Denver.

So, the new release date is January 2013, taking Sean Penn out of the race for 2012. From the trailer, you can bet he'll be nominated and probably win.

Also, Lincoln releases in a few weeks with Daniel Day-Lewis as Lincoln. Might as well engrave his name now.

What I got from the Ganster Squad preview was that it's totally jacking the story from The Untouchables.

Good point. Don't see why they couldn't have just gone straight remake with it though. Remake The Untouchables, move the setting to LA. Same movie, less shady.

There more I watch the Untochables, the worse it gets. If they do take the story and make it more believable then might actually be a good thing.

I love Daniel Day-Lewis as much as the next bi-curious male ... but that movie does not look good at all. I don't care how good of a job he does at portraying Lincoln, it just looks like an inconsequential film.

I'm a huge Day-Lewis fan and I expect he will win his third Best Actor Oscar if the Lincoln trailers are any indication.

Of all people, Jack Black is starting to get a little buzz for his friendly-mortician-turned-killer Bernie.

Wow, this may be the first and only time I've ever heard someone in favor of a remake.

...and now that I've addressed that glorious first line, I think I may agree with you. It looks boring, but I'm still gonna go see it. You have to hope that the Spielberg/John Williams tandem will make this quite the moving experience, even if it isn't as exciting as their standard fare.

Still an open race unless someone dies (Like Heath Ledger) or one of the contenders comes out of the closet in the next month.

So if Tyler Perry comes out he will win!

Isn't he pretty much out? He seems so natural cross dressing and playing a woman. Not that there's anything wrong with that. I know some of our members do that too.

John Williams is top-notch in my book. But Spielberg ... man, has there ever been a more schizophrenic director? For every 2 great films the man directs, he puts out a turd. I hope Lincoln is not the turd, but it looks that way to me.

More of a reflection of how Ganster Squad seems to be hiding a remake in what they are advertising as a new movie.

Although I don't mind that it's like The Untouchables, guess I'm in the minority I enjoy that movie personally.
