The Felixes

Or, the Anti-Oscars.TM

Best Picture 2005

Brokeback Mountain

PRO: Wrenching love story with strong box office draw … shows why Mamas shouldn't let your babies grow up to be cowboys.

CON: Same Sex, Next Year.


PRO: Best of category; combines sexuality of Brokeback Mountain and imminent death suspense of Munich.

CON: In Cold Blood seemed like a lot better movie when we thought Robert Blake was acting.


PRO: Did surprisingly well because Wall Street thought it was about the stock market, southerners thought it was about NASCAR, and fetishists thought it was about sex.

CON: Wasn't about any of those things.

Good Night, and Good Luck

PRO: Finally, a rousing endorsement of the Patriot Act.

CON: More cerebral than cinematic; who needs stadium seating and Dolby THX to see story about white guys in suits black-and-white TV?


PRO: The feel-good movie of the winter, just in time for the Olympics

CON: Draggy revenge movie operates in nearly real-time. SPOILER: Characters stand up, make speeches, die.
