The 2010 Oscar nominations are finally here, and they are... not at all surprising! Not really, anyway. Look at it this way: The good news is you're going to win your office Oscar pool. The bad news is, so will everyone else, so you're just going to get your own twenty back. Sorry, but that's the way it is. Let me show you.
Yet another Pixar masterpiece is out on DVD and Blu-Ray, which means it's time to worship at the altar of your media player of choice. And while The Twilight Saga: New Moon doesn't come out until next weekend, it looks like the movie is already out on DVD today! We can't wait to-- wait a minute... We've been duped!
We have to admit, Pixar seems to be able to do no wrong. Every time they make a new movie, they try to do something unique and different -- talking race cars, cooking rats, mute robots -- and each time it turns out to be a hit. But are they really all that unique and different? We've seen a bunch of footage from their newest film, Up, and we can see a bunch of similarities to their previous films. Are all Pixar movies pretty much the same story? Doesn't everyone tell the same story, in a way? Isn't life just one big story that's forever being told? Ponder that one as we search for patterns in the Pixar universe.
