Hell, go and see Wreck-It Ralph an extra five times just to ensure you’re completely cleansed of all I Give It A Year and Hitchcock’s dirty, dirty residue.

Wreck-It Ralph, I Give It A Year and Hitchcock are all released in UK cinemas tomorrow.

I Should Probably Post These Oscar Nominations, Then

OSCARS-2013

Seeing as everyone was a little Oscar’d out yesterday, I thought I’d wait until today to put these up. I’m not going to say too much, as I think I exhausted my point over on Twitter (@iamnotwaynegale) and said everything I wanted to when predicting my nominations here.

‘Snubs’ aside, all I’ll say is that I’m absolutely thrilled for Benh Zeitlin and little Quvenzhané and really pleased Eiko Ishioka gets a fitting tribute.

2012 St. Louis Gateway Film Critics Association Nominations

screen-shot-2011-12-12-at-21-20-57

St. Louis loves a bit of Tarantino!

There’s a little bit more breathing space away from the usual suspects in this batch of nominations, with Moonrise Kingdom getting a lot of very deserved nods and a few more interesting people popping up in the Acting categories, including Aubrey Plaza, Jamie Foxx, John Goodman, William H.

There’s also the inclusion of Best Arthouse or Festival Film and Best Scene, but as for Best Comedy, Ted can definitely bore off.
