Halle Berry shooting for Oscar again in Frankie and Alice trailer

12.01.2010

How do you go from being an Oscar winner to starring in GOTHIKA, CATWOMAN and PERFECT STRANGER to now being Oscar bait yet again? Let's spin the roulette wheel of disabilities until we get to...

Autism...

Schizophrenia...

Nope, we've landed on...Multiple Personality Disorder! Ding ding ding!

Halle Berry is back in the Oscar hunt with her portrayal of a mentally troubled, real-life woman in Frankie and Alice. Frankie is a go-go dancer, Alice appears to be some sort of southern debutant, and they don't particularly get along inside her head.

Check out the trailer below:

I thought the trailer was going to be bad from reading all the later comments people posted. But it looks fine to me, I didn't pick up on any Oscar baiting. However, I do think they should have cut out the last 20 seconds of that trailer. I thought the last bit was just unnecessary and one part was even cheesy.

The trailer make is look like a thriller rather than a drama. Which to me, isnt the right way to go.

Tidbit: Marisa Tomei is 46 and way hotter.

Not feeling this flick

The trailer looks like pure Oscar bait. Like every shot, line and piece of acting from Halle is dead-set for Oscars and nothing else. I hate movies like that. It just feels so cheap.

"Multiple Personality Disorder"? It's referred to as Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID) nowadays, isn't it?

If she wins an Oscar for this, which personality will accept the award?

It's been awhile since I've seen Stellan Skarsgard take a more prominent role in anything. Movies like this don't usually do it for me though. If they sidestep enough cliches, then there is hope.

This doesn't really look all that good. It reminds me of an over-forced TV movie. And I like Halle. She just needs to start taking some more even roles to balance herself out a bit. It seems like she's always either trying to go for a win, or just ends up getting stuck with a really shitty, run-of-the-mill movie.

I'm not saying she needs to sell out, but she can definitely use a fresh injection into the media—seeing as she's clearly been trying to come back on top.

These multi-layered

These multi-layered character dramas aren't always the best way to go. Like Jude Law, some actors are just better in supporting roles. And every now and then, they get that lead that really makes them stand out.

I have to see Black Swan and this to decide who's more worthy of an Oscar.

Well blame the director/writers for Catwoman. They should have followed a comic instead of creating a "Batman & Robin" style movie. She would have pulled off a Pfeiffer-style Catwoman.

She didn't want to do Pfeiffer's Catwoman. I read she had too much respect for it.
