Thompson on Hollywood

The Boston Society of Film Critics got their votes out Sunday ahead of the Los Angeles Film Critics Association, which arguably has more impact within an industry town. But fact is, The Social Network is emerging as a consensus choice among early critics groups, and dominated Boston with five wins including picture, director David Fincher, star Jesse Eisenberg, writer Aaron Sorkin and music (full list of winners below). LAFCA also announces its winners Sunday: stay tuned for updates. Black Swan had a good weekend as it broadened at the box office and landed best actress from Boston for Natalie Portman.

    I know people still think The Social Network could pratically walk on water, but I still didn't care for it or the characters in the film and think it's vastly overrrated. Maybe the most overrated film of the decade

    For my money the best film of the year is True Grit - LOVE that film!

    This really isn't a surprise. As we used to say in the 70s, "it's near the water." (Translation: a movie set in or near a particular city or locale will invariably do well in that city/locale.)
