A Whole Lotta Nothing: Oscar baby

Finding Neverland

Johnny Depp, as always, did well, and it was a nice little story but nothing to write home about. I don’t know why it’s on anyone’s list as a possible best picture, there was nothing wrong with it, but it just didn’t transcend the “good film” level to greatness.

Matt, my friend, I think we saw a different movie. It was a wonderful little story, one that every writer/creatve-type needs to see. Kinda a glossed over tale of how Peter Pan came to be…through marriages ending, death, and utter failure, came this wonderful story. I could easily see this movie again and possibly own the DVD.
