Lost in Translation is a movie about...well...absolutely nothing. Two American's (Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson) are in Tokyo and they meet. They might fall in love, I'm not quite sure. Nothing happens really. They talk about who knows what a couple of times. They go visit a couple of clubs in Tokyo.
I watched the entire movie out of sheer curiosity of why the heck it had apparently been nominated for two Academy Awards. Nothing ever happened though. I honestly found no point at all to this movie.
However it did come to strengthen my belief that if a movie gets an Academy Award, it's probably not worth watching. It seems like most movies that get these awards are just mind-numbingly boring. Here are a couple examples: Lord of the Rings (It may have good battle scenes but when it takes 3 hours to get to them..) Moulin Rouge (Have you seen it?)...I mean c'mon...where are the good movies? You tell me. These movies may have good storylines...if anyone can stay awake long enough to get to the point...if there is one.
