rick: "The fuck you say?"

Part of me thought about posting Golden Globe predictions today, but then the other part of me said "I don't care this year, remember?" So after a brief argument with myself (which I eventually won), I decided to throw together a little prediction/preference piece just for the hell of it.

District 9 said…
I was a little bit hesitant to watch District 9, for a couple of reasons. First of all, a movie that receives the hype it did usually disappoints, as it just can’t live up to the buzz.
