    I have had no problem finding torrents for An Education, Precious, or Avatar. Of course, they have all been out for some time.

    I streamed a sample of Avatar on some site and it looks like sh_t. I saw it again in IMAX 3d last week and its best suited to that format. Whats the motivation of releasing a screener that’s still widely playing in theaters. And its 3d for heaven’s sake.

    Voters who watch Avatar on screener will definitely not vote for it. It truly looks animated.

    Barf… “DiCaprio, Scorses reunite for fourth time…”

    They’re UNITING for the fourth time. I suppose one could say they’re REuniting for the THIRD time, but that would just be confusing.
