This would be my pick for best animated picture. Loved it, and the message that it taught.

Why? Would you ever want to Remake True Grit. Some Great Movies you need to leave alone.

I would be like Remaking The Color Purple and calling people Aferican American, instead of the N Word.

Or Roots, or Driving Miss Daisy.

John Wayne got an Airport Named After Him for that and other Movies.

Orange County, a short Shuttle to Disney Land, and you get to miss the LAX experience. Be sure to Book Enough Rooms to ensure you do not get cut off, during Vacation.

The remake doesn't take anything away from the original. If you prefer that one, then good for you, and don't see the new one. Obviously somebody thinks that they did a good job with it, as they nominated it for best picture of the year. And call me whatever you want, but I had never even heard of True Grit until this movie came out, and I was able to watch and enjoy both of them.

The King's Speech is absolutely inspiring. The short scene that resulted in its R rating was fully extinguished by the immense good conveyed by the film. (I would hope that the value of a story of a man with royal lineage, destined to be a King, but filled with glaring weakness, would not be lost on the Deseret News readers.) Regardless of how the world may rate films, this is one on which to make up your own mind.

I would like to see Toy Story 3 get serious consideration. Animated or not, it was a great film with a great message.
