Saw a useless film starring Brad Pitt called Tree of Life or something similar. Waste of money producing. Then again Shakespeare in Love and Ordinary People won Oscars for best movie. Seem to remember Forrest Gump beat Pulp Fiction. Wes Anderson films are not for me. Pretentious drivel. Rather watch Wes Craven and that's saying something.
