So what will be the inevitable mediocre movie that does make the best picture cut?
I enjoyed Argo, but it is a pretty mediocre front runner at the moment. Wasn't a fan of either Moonrise Kingdom or Beasts of the Southern Wild, either; though they are better than mediocre, I guess. Anna Karenina got savaged at TIFF. Hyde Park on Hudson, which also got clobbered, might make the cut in a year that seems to be wrapping itself in American flags. Those two would seem to qualify as mediocre in the unlikely chance one of them is anointed.
