So the Oscars are tonight. I don't know who will win what. Of those nominated for best picture I've seen Toy Story 3, The Social Network, and Inception. Of the others that I haven't seen the only two that I'd like to see are True Grit and The King's Speech. I've heard that the King's Speech is a lock for the win so I'd especially like to see that to see what the hype is. I've heard that there are only a few minor parts where swearing is heavy, so I would think that the clearplay would turn it into a veritable PG movie. But let's return to those that I have seen- I thought the social network was good, but not the best movie of the year. I actually didn't think that about any of those three. But in all fairness, let's look at other movies I saw from 2010. Megamind, Prince of Persia, Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter, and How to Train Your Dragon. Prince of Persia was easily the worst of that list, but an equally clear choice is the second to last movie-Alice in Wonderland. Let's look at my rankings for these movies. 1 being best.
1. Social Network
2. How to train your dragon
3. Harry Potter
4. Inception
5. Toy Story 3
6. Megamind
7. Alice in Wonderland
8. Prince of Persia

Other movies from 2010 that I still want to see besides the two I mentioned above include: Tangled, and Tron. Maybe Red. Anyway, those are my thoughts. I'd like to start watching more new movies because it always seems like there are a million that I want to see. Always feel free to let me know about movies you'd recommend. (Thanks Erin and Daniel for the recommendation about Waiting For "Superman."

Here is a song on youtube that I like called "Teach Me How to Jimmer"

So I think I want to start posting my favorite youtube videos as I come across them. Here is one about some guy from France who goes around pulling pranks. If you search more of him just be cautious, I ran into a couple of his that weren't appropriate. Also, even though only family views this blog, I've decided to grab Jessica's button for this post.
