One Final Rant

28 Feb

I don't really have anything against Mr. Firth. He's just representative.

The more I think about The King’s Speech and especially Tom Hooper winning last night, the more annoyed I am.  Haven’t the Oscars awarded to Forrest Gump, Shakespeare in Love and Crash taught us anything?

It’s not like I didn’t think it was a good movie.  I did.  Just should never have won over The Social Network and David Fincher.

Here’s one of the things I did love about The King’s Speech:  the fact that it used one of my favorite pieces of music, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 in A Major, Op. 92, Allegretto.  I was wondering why I’ve had that in my head all day today, and just realized it must have been the darn Awards.

Anyway, download here.  It’s beautiful.
