Bitches, bring out the popcorn 'cause i'm in a feisty mood. Meow!! Haha, just kidding.
The important thing we should be talking about is........ that we're getting first full reviews on Sunday.
Having the embargo end this early sure says a lot of things.
I also have three friends seeing it on Sunday as well.

Honey darling seems so much like Lawrence.
Can't wait for this
Our next ooscar Winner Chastain will shine
For Your Consideration
Academy Award NOMINEE
I think this movie had some screening some time soon, no?
I feel the Chastain train is happening.
The last hope for Jlaw is that Hollywood falls in love with her during the award season while Jessica will provide fake smiles ( the so called realness ...) learned in art schools. Not sure if Chastain will talk about pee and vaginas ...
Yet another apparently great movie adds itself to the list with Zero Dark Thirty, Kathryn Bigelow’s film on the hunt for Bin Laden. Brooks Barnes at the NY Times has seen it, and includes some commentary in his interview with the Oscar winning team of Bigelow and screenwriter Marc Boal. It looks to be up to Bigelow’s preferred level of intensity, and will likely stand out among the other feelgood fare this year. Whose bringing the cojones? Bigelow’s bringing the cojones. There is something thrilling in that:
The new movie is not for the faint of heart or for those expecting typical Hollywood fare. Whether “Zero Dark Thirty” succeeds may depend on the willingness of audience members (and awards voters) to relive difficult events in a drama that Ms. Bigelow and Mr. Boal insist should honor the facts and protect sources, even if that means giving less attention to cinematic conventions like a love interest, comic twists (à la “Argo”) or characters’ back stories.
Perhaps more startling than Mr. Obama’s absence — nothing here about a “gutsy call” — is the decision to focus on a young woman who is portrayed as persisting for years in the pursuit when higher-ranking, more powerful and better-armed men around her were failing, lazy or clueless.
“For her, for our character, that’s how it felt,” Ms. Bigelow said. “She felt like she was battling all sides.”
Mr. Boal added that the story could have been told with as much validity through others who had participated.
“When you decide to tell the story through a specific person’s eyes, it defines what you see,” Mr. Boal said. As he and Ms. Bigelow prepare to meet Hollywood’s awards voters in the inevitable crash round of appearances — Oscar nomination voting begins on Dec. 17, and few here have seen the film — they are recovering from the rigors of a compressed filmmaking process that began this year and ended only five days ago, when she finished final touches.
Along the way, they were reported to have been harassed by rioters on a set in India, where protesters objected to their having dressed a largely Hindu district with Muslim-related signage. But the disturbance, the filmmakers said, was smaller than reported and quickly ended, a riot made for television news cameras and little more. Since then, they said, there have been no security threats of note.

Even if the real person Chastain is playing is not known to the public, awarding Chastain could be seen as honoring this 'unsung hero' ( a woman, no less!) of what is, in the US at least, seen as a glorious moment. A small factor in the whole voting process, perhaps, but a factor all the same.
Mods, do an IP check on HoneyDarling. And then even if it isn't LoA or Nose or Moe or something, BAN THEM.
I think it helps that Chastain IS the film, but it might hurt her in that she probably won't have the typical opportunities to "Actress." It's not just AD that loves their big actress moments. It's Oscar. I think she gets a nom (Jeremy Renner got one after a great, subtle turn in another Bigelow war film), but as of now I'm not comfortable predicting her for a win -- especially since Lawrence is so explosive in SLP.
Will Oscar have Riva Fever?
