Oscar special!

Have you seen The Artist? Has anyone you know seen it? I can't find anyone who's seen the damned thing.

What the hell is so great about a silent movie that looks like every silent movie from the pre-talkies age?

Overemphatic gesturing and soundless mouthing of words, all set to music and filmed in black-and-white? In 2012? I'm not all into 3D and crazy special effects, but REALLY? A silent black-and-white movie is the best movie of 2012?

I don't get it.

I saw it by myself. I walked out before it was over. I thought the story was too simple and I stopped rooting for the characters.

Good looking lead actors and a damned cute dog, though.

"Good looking lead actors and a damned cute dog, though."

The above is exactly why I plan on seeing it.

Simply not interested. I've seen a few of the real thing. Been there done that.

No one has an original idea these days in the movie industry. It's all rehash of past films.

My reverse barometer for movies said she loved it, therefore I have no plans to see it.

I don't understand the appeal either, except for maybe the dog. A cute dog can save anything.

This is why I got rid of the tv and rarely go to the movies. Ok, and bedbugs. I mean, $12 for a ticket and the threat of bedbugs? No way.
