Which Oscar-nominated film should I see this week?
I have President's Day off so I can see a movie. I still haven't seen Argo, Lincoln, Life of Pi, Amour, Silver Linings Playbook, Django Unchained or Zero Dark Thirty.
Which do you recommend?
A friend told me Life of Pi is the one film I should definitely see on the big screen. Do you agree?
I've already seen Les Miserables, Beasts of the Southern Wild, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and Hitchcock.
I've seen Argo, Lincoln, and SLP (also The Impossible.) Of those, I enjoyed Argo the most.
I've seen everything but Amour. I liked all of them, but your friend is right-if you are even remotely interested in seeing Life of Pi, make sure you see it on the big screen.
Argo, Silver Linings Playbook, Lincoln or Django
A vote for seeing Les Miz a second time. It gets better with every viewing!
So you've already seen all the shitty films.
I can't believe Argo is gonna win best picture. Can you imagine one of the Mission Impossible movies winning best picture? No. And Argo is no better. But it looks like it's going to win.
Lincoln and Silver Linings Playbook and Django Unchained are all a million times better than that admittedly pleasant movie.
Personally, I'd go see Lincoln, OP. It has a great screenplay and a magnificent performance. And it's Spielberg's best movie in a long time. But SLP is pretty damn fun, I have to admit. And Jennifer Lawrence is as amazing as DDL in Lincoln.

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
