This is new / movies

After reading other folks this morning talking about the new format for posting I decided to see what all the fuss was about. The new set up will take some getting used to but I don't hate it. At least not yet.

Instead lets talk about the Golden Globe noms. Many of you may already know I'm kind of a freak about nomination lists like this (particularly for the Oscar's), I tend to look at them as a to do list of movies to see. Except three of the 'best' movies nominated are ones I made a conscious decision not to go to. So now what do I do?

I'm sure that Borat, Babel, and Bobby all have things going for them but none of them seemed that exciting to me. (Maybe I have a block against one word, two syllable titles that start with B.) But if I'm aiming for Oscar completion again this year, than the Golden Globes are usually a good guide to what I need to see. So dear flist, are any of these movies worth my time and $10? Argue for your favorite in the comments.

FWIW, I've already seen six of the 'best' movies nominated and am just waiting for Dreamgirls to go into wide release. And WTF Apocalypto is a foreign language film? I mean it is, I guess, but Hollywood Foreign Press, wouldn't you maybe want to include a few more non-US flicks?
