Last time around I looked at four of the contenders for Best Picture in this Sunday's Academy Awards (The Blind Side, Precious, District 9, and Avatar) and deemed only Precious worthy of serious contention (ahem). I was able to pair those films into groupings around racial morality plays and human-hatin' moral...
