Without a doubt one of the most over-rated films of the past year. I saw it a couple of weeks ago (due to all the outstanding reviews). The couple in front of us left halfway through it. The couple behind us both fell asleep, and we were bored out of our minds. Yes the movie is well acted and I'm sure Cloin Firth will win best actor (The Academy usually honor roles when people have afflictions), but I was extremely disappointed.

Must disagree with 24lakers. "King's Speech" is a superb film with very fine performances from all concerned.

Just got nominated for Best Picture. A very well-done movie.

Also, I guess talking makes a movie boring, right denger76?

I just wish this was coming out before the Oscars so I could see it at home before the award show.

@Brandocash It is out before the Oscars, and you can see it before the awards show. It is currently playing in theaters across the country. And it is worth it. Definitely one of the best movies of the year. It is ok to go to the Cinema. They don't bite.

24lakers, your comment about people with afflictions borders on prejudice (in a backward sort of way).

As for the King's Speech. I can see it should get awards for acting, directing, etc. but I have problems with an award for cinematography, costumes, score etc. That's going a bit too far. It is a good character movie with many superb performances but I felt it fell down badly in evoking the times to me. I never felt that it was more than a roughly drawn simulacrum of the 1930's. But then 2010 was not a great year for "period" films.

Good movie, not great. The performances were excellent and they all deserved to be nominated. However, I feel Firth should have won Best Actor last year for A Single Man, which I think is a much better film.

Easily one of the very best films of 2010, I'd be happy with either King's or Social winning Best Picture this year, look forward to watching it again too, Firth is the man!

I have not seen it, but I'm getting the impression that the whole oscar winner craze is what making these films. I get the feeling they are premeditated, and maybe they ARE.

Think about it, most of the oscar winners are usually modestly budgeted (by hollywood standards; in reality, more money than 100 homes) which half of their budget is marketing their stars. Most nominees are spoken about before anyone watches the films. It's an extended advertisement program reselling their movies for extra profit.

That doesn't mean I won't watch it, but the buzz is making me queasy.

wow just saw this at the theater earlier today- thought it was really excellent. Kept me interested and my eyes glued to the screen for the entire duration and how many films nowadays can you say that about?...This is one classy film starring some truly gifted and talented people.
Quality from start to finish and some brilliant acting and a great story too. 9 out of 10 from me.

Saw it recently, and while it's a very good movie, it does not deserve to be the most Oscar-nominated (and possibly now even the favorite to win Best Picture over previous front-runner, The Social Network) film of 2010. When you think Tom Hooper was nominated for Best Director over a visionary like Christopher Nolan for Inception, you kinda want to laugh. And then maybe just be angry about how the Academy thinks.

Harvey Weinstein is having a field day campaigning for this film -- just like when he got Shakespeare in Love a win over Saving Private Ryan in '98. But I will say that TKS is a far superior film to Shakes in Love.

I think the film was good, it was not great. Some nominations were unwarranted. Loved ther performances. However, the film is definitely overrated.

I thought the film was excellent with some of the best acting I have seen in film. I think it would be very difficult to act the two leads compared to say acting in an action adventure film or in a comedy. I can understand how this type of movie is not to everyone's taste. For some, not enough car chases, aliens, nudity, fart jokes, etc. I'm only half kidding.

@24lakers: Obviously it is not a movie for stupid people. Perhaps a movie like Little Fockers might amuse you instead.

Enjoyable little film....moving at times. Agree with 'reidw' regarding the questionable noms for cinematography, art direction, score, & costumes.....the acting noms however, are fully deserved. Day One purchase for sure

Colin Firth looks absolutely nothing like King George , the Queen Mum looks like Cherie Blair but The duke of windsor & wallis simpson are excellent likenesses. Rush is brilliant & and deserves best supporting. It does not deserve any of the technicals. I did enjoy it though but there are far better nominations this year.

One of my favorite films and probably the best acted I've ever seen. Firth, Rush, and Carter are all outstanding. The previews out on TV right now paint this film almost as a comedy, but it is so much more than the few funny - though genuinely funny - moments. Touching, painful, inspirational... it has a little bit of everything in it.
