Not To Be Trusted With Knives

{January 24, 2007}   The Queen

So, The Queen is up for the Best Picture Oscar. I so don’t get this. That was probably the most boring movie I saw all year. And I only went to see it because I won free tickets. It was a “character study,” they tell you. “You learned so much about the queen’s perspective,” they tell you. Um, no. Really, it was a movie about how the queen didn’t go on TV for a week after Diana died. And then she went on TV. And we already knew she would, because it already happened. Ya, that’s Best Picture material.
