Hello World!

I came to the shocking realisation yesterday that I've turned into a movie snob. With a few friends, I'd gone to see 'Chocolat', which like the book I really liked. After the film, I was talking with a friend about how I thought it was difficult to determine which film should win the 'Best Picture' Oscar. He said that for him it was a very easy choice, and so I asked him which one he would like to see win, wondering what he would choose. 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon' maybe? Or 'Traffic'? But no - he said 'Gladiator'.

That quickly killed the conversation, and we cycled back home in silence, but after thinking about it it did make me realise how elitist my thinking has become over the past years, after faithfully reading all the established reviewers' opinions on new films. 'Gladiator' is of course exactly one of those films that often ends up winning the Oscar, and I also really enjoyed it when I first saw it. Maybe it would be a good thing if I finally stopped reading reviews and just start seeing the movies for what they are again...
