OSCAR WATCH: An Education



I thought this movie might be boring and dull, but I really enjoyed it. The title "An Education" was perfect as the main character (Jenny) really got a crash course on life. It's a coming of age tale, with a solid cast that really got me asking myself "What is the purpose of our lives?". The entire cast was great, but I must single out Carey Mulligan. I am telling you now, this girl has a very bright future ahead. I found her incredibly captivating and the Audrey Hepburn comparisons are valid, as she truly looked like a classic movie star. When she got dolled-up for her excursions with David she was absolutely stunning. But such was her talent that she was able to rein in the elegance and confidence to also play the sweet, simple schoolgirl. I think Mulligan should win Best Actress, but she's coming up against the one and only Meryl Streep, so it could be tight. This movie screams Oscar, so it should get a nomination for Best Picture and I also think the screenplay will be nominated.

With a fingertip, we can dispatch once valued photos and emails to oblivion.

    When you have to deal with the big problems in your life, you or your partner may be taking out their stress on the other person.

    Selecting the best pair of running shoes means knowing what kind of feet you have and how their shape affects the way you run. While minimalist shoes are a recent trend in running, if you have high arches or overpronate, you'll need shoes with specific support. This helps reduce your risk of injury by making sure your feet have the proper support..

    Yes, those are two fully armored knights kick punch chopping the shit out of each other in an MMA ring, and no, that's not an isolated incident where a couple of extras find an empty ring and decide to take some badass Facebook profile pics. A Russian MMA promotion called M 1 has started featuring them in their otherwise ordinary events, and they've become so popular they're even trying to put together a knights only federation called M 1 Medieval. They're still figuring out the exact rules, though the final rule set is almost certainly going to forbid some of the more fatal strikes and the use of sharpened blades, because they recognize spraying the front seats with blood and limbs "Monty Python's Black Knight" style is generally frowned upon if you do it in every match.
