Her Name is Rio

I spent Super Bowl Sunday watching another Oscar movie and putting together a puzzle. Perfect Sunday, if you ask me :) I was supposed to get "Drive" in the mail from Netflix on Saturday, but it never made it (unless my "roommates" are holding it upstairs). So I walked over to the Redbox and grabbed "Rio" instead. Honestly, I think the animated fun movie was a better fit for my lazy Sunday mood.

"Real in Rio" is up for the Music (Original Song) category. I'm not really surprised it's not up for the Animated Feature Film; it wasn't the best overall movie. But the music was definitely the best part. Loved the Latin feel! It's up against only one other song--"Man or Muppet" from the Muppets. I haven't seen that one yet, though, so it's a fair 50/50 shot as far as I can tell. Here's the preview:

Anyone have an opinion on "Real in Rio" vs. "Man or Muppet?"

  1. Brad is obsessed with "Drive," but he says the second half is incredibly violent. Like, gruesomely violent. So I'm not allowed to watch it. (I have him screen my movies for me.)

    Man or Muppet all the way!! :)

    1. Well, crap. I almost vomited from "Fight Club." I got it yesterday, I might just return it so I can get something else ASAP.

    2. So I tried watching "Drive" last night. I made it about 45min to an hour and was thinking it was fine. And then BAM! Someone's head gets blown to pieces and the violence started. So, Brad was right :)

    3. Haha, awww! That sucks. I just told him what you said and he said it's exactly one hour in that the violence starts. And Fight Club is a very violent movie. I had nightmares for weeks!

    4. I'm getting the last Transformers movie today. Never got a nightmare from Josh Duhamel ;)
