I watched "Nebraska" this weekend and I loved it. I felt it perfectly captured small town America. It is pretty slow paced and I'm not sure everyone will get it, but I loved it. Some great performances all around.
American Hustle got a bunch of nominations including best acting for Bale, actress for Adams, supporting for Cooper and Lawrence.
I thought Bale did a good job, but I do not see how Adams, Lawrence, and especially Cooper got nominations.
Saw Lone Survivor and liked it, I plan on reading the book now.
When I think of "risky" movies, I think of KIDS. That's taking a risk.

I watched "42" last night with one of my sons. I liked it.
"Hey...Dad. Wanna Have A Catch?" Kevin Costner in "Field Of Dreams."
I watched "Her" and "American Hustle" this weekend.
I thought "American Hustle" was a good movie, but no where near great. It has a few really great scenes and was fun and well acted, but the plot line was kind of a mess. I also didn't understand Bradley Cooper's performance at all.
I loved "Her" and it might be my favorite movie this year. I'm very surprised that Joaquin Phoenix wasn't nominated for Best Actor.
Not saying the movie is unrealistic, as I have no frame of reference, but what is your opinion of how the movie added many "bad guys?" I read the quantity of people fighting the SEALs was increased by quite a bit.
I said "bad guys" because I do not know the story and do not know who they are.
