20:10 "all dragons have a limited number of shots"

Screen capture from the 20th minute and 10th second of How To Train Your Dragon
(or thereabouts. I'm not so sure this VLC time counter works properly grrrr)

"How many does a Gronkol have?"

It's less than 19 hours until Oscar nominations!!! Which animated feature do you think will place alongside How To Train Your Dragon and Toy Story 3? It seems like a coin toss doesn't it between Tangled (the commerce and corporate tradition votes), The Illusionist (the art and international votes) and Despicable Me (the scrappy upstarts, comedy votes)? Well, a coin toss if you have a... uh... three sided coin.

Here's my chart of final Oscar predictions and the post in which I ask the big questions about uncertainties tomorrow morning.

20:10 Truer words were never spoken (by Toys)

Screen capture: 20th minute and 10th second of Toy Story 3 (with the dialogue immediately preceding this image).

It's nice. See! The door has a rainbow on it.

Tee hee. Love the basic causal evidence cited (rainbows -- duh!)  and the line delivery is also rich. Don't you love Wallace Shawn as "Rex"? Def' one of the best Toy Story characters. And isn't it fun that the screaming monkey is first introduced so innocuously while Bonnie pours love at him?

Speaking of Bonnie, our first glimpse of Sunnyside is also her introduction.

Is this BONNIE!?

She is beyond adorable. Plus she plays well with toys. They do a lot of improv. (Tangent: Why is shyness so endearing in kids and pets and so annoying in adults?) How can anything/anyone be so cute rendered in pixels?

 

 

(Are you enjoying this return freeze frame series?)

20:10 "Det kommer en ny blomma varje år"

Screenshots from the 20th minute and 10th second of 2010 films as we close out the year through awards season. [I may be a smidge off on this one, timing wise, as my counter was all knullade but this'll do.]

Helt utrop!

That's damn amazing. Every godforsaken year on his birthday he gets a framed flower in the post. Who is sending them? Why? The answers are in The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.

20:10 "I feel like there's some subtext here."

Three years ago at the original blog, I created a series called 20:07 which became one of the most popular TFE features ever and spawned a slew of imitators 'round the web. Just for fun, let's resurrect that ol' pet for the remainder of Oscar season as we finish celebrating the films of 2010 before the new film year begins.

Screen capture: 20th minute and 10th second of The Kids Are All Right

Nic: Honey, you're on a whole other tangent. I have no idea what you're talking about.

Jules: Maybe it hasn't risen to the plane of consciousness for you, yet.

Nic: [Annoyed] Uh... yeah. Maybe.


God, I love these two. Don't you? And I'm not just talking about the actresses.

20:10 Strangely Timed Vacation

Three years ago at the original blog, I created a series called 20:07 which became one of the most popular TFE features ever and spawned a slew of imitators 'round the web. Just for fun, let's resurrect that ol' champ for the remainder of Oscar season as we finish celebrating the films of 2010 so that a new film year can spring forth.

Screen capture: 20th minute and 10th second of Shutter Island

Chuck Aule: You're in a state of lockdown, a dangerous patient has escaped and you let her primary doctor leave? On vacation?

I love that Leonardo's expression is so play-acting at detective work. Like 'I might write down a clue at this very moment. I just might. I'm a detective!'  Isn't that perfect?

But about that doctor. Do you have the phone number for where he's gone? Do you have this film's number? (I'm guessing 2 as in Cinematography and Art Direction. Not that I need every conversation to be about Oscar.)
