True. I mean, I still tell the people the same old: “Did I enjoy the movie? Yes. Will I look back on it 10 years from now with the nostalgic factor of movies like ‘Dark Knight’? No.”

I stand by my original assessment: “it’s likely to go down in history as little more than technical triumph.” Still, Hollywood loves a winner so much – especially one that includes America the Ugly politics – that JC might take home the Best Picture Oscar.

FWIW, the Best Picture of the year was clearly Up In The Air. Up is also deserving.
