who fucks Tarantino anyway.
and to whoever dared to contradict me about Tarantino’s films being of better value out of ANY OF HIS “INFLUENCES”:
let him or her crawl back to his or her hole for telling me that because if he or she had seen those previous influences, they wouldn’t even fuckin’ care neither about the Oscars nor about Tarantino’s popcorn films, YES, POPCORN FILMS, ENJOYABLE POPCORN FLICKS FOR FUCK’S SAKE, HOW DIFFICULT IS IT TO COMPREHEND IT????
the whole world to choose from and these are the best they can come up with? Actually these days the animated and documentary categories are likely to be of more interest and the foreign film one may not have quite such a bad winner as usual.
sorry Kenji but i’m sick and tired of Pixar, Disney and U.S. cartoons all the fuckin’ time, i’m sick and tired of American-promoted docus and above all, i’m sick and tired to take the “foreign film” category for granted, as if Goyas’ or Donatellos’ foreign category is of minor importance compared to the fuckin’ Oscar one, so thank you but no thank you.
I’m not quite sure, but I bet she has big feet.
“but I bet she has big feet”
it could be a he, i don’t really have a problem with his sex life :)
What kenji said.
Dimitris, For someone who doesn’t care about the Oscars, you sure do care about it. :D
i hate politics too but i unfortunately MUST speak about it ;)
“I’m not quite sure, but I bet she has big feet.”
even his fetishes are lame
Interesting replies. i have seen every film nominated except district 9, and i think IB is better by far than a serious man. I wont be THAT mad if the hurt locker wins, it is better than most of the bunch.
I liked Up a lot. I’m mixed on some of Quentin Tarantino’s films. There are a few I like a lot such as the Kill Bill films and this one, but for the most part, I think they have way too much dialogue. I thought the Hurt Locker was overrated. Not that it’s a bad movie, but it just seems like a regular war movie with the soldier who goes by the rules and the macho soldier who takes off his bombing gear to defuse a bomb and the typical ambush and the priest who will die by stepping on a mine. Avatar is great technologically speaking, but I think it’s a bit too overdone with more than one floating mountain with a waterfall coming down it and the typical let’s save the planet and not commit genocide on a civilization thing going for it. Not that that’s a bad thing, but after a while, how many special effects do you need to get the point of a picture. I’m not putting down special effects. I like a lot of movies with special effects. I just don’t like it when you could have shown me a few or a little more than a few floating mountains rather than hundreds of them. Sometimes that kind of thing can work in a film like Pixar’s Monster’s Inc with the hundreds of hanging doors at the end of the picture, but it doesn’t get in the way of the point of the film. I just didn’t get A Serious Man. I guess maybe it’s some kind of test the main character goes through like Job in the Bible with God testing him. The theories explaining the film like on this website are more fascinating to me than the actual film itself. I thought No Country For Old Men, Fargo, Blood Simple and The Big Lebowski are better pictures. I haven’t seen most or maybe not all of the rest of the best picture nominees, but from what I have seen, I will have to go with Up. I think the concept of a floating house is a novel idea and it’s filled with breathtaking action and deep feeling. I like the fact about the film that even if you’re old, your life is still not over and there are still adventures and journeys you can go on. What seems to lead to a depressing point in Carl Frederickson’s life at the start of the film is elevated to a much more optimistic feeling at the end of the film. I don’t think it’s going to win Best Picture and if I saw the other nominees, I might change my mind, but this is what I can say based on what I have seen. I think it will at least win Best Animated Film and probably Best Score as well. So that’s my two cents.
I will be so mad I will mount my flying pig and ride it all the way down to hell. There Satan, in the early onset of hypothermia, will ask me what is the reason for my visit. To which I shall reply, one of my favorite movies of the past year has won best picture and I had lost one thousand dollars betting against the odds that the Academy once in a blue moon would actually give the award to a movie that actually deserves to be called one of the best pictures of the past year. So there I would vent some of my anger by beating the shit out of Mother Teresa.
Oh I thought the topic of this thread was “How mad will you be if Inglorious Bastards WINS best picture”.
I continue my campaign for Like You Know It All to somehow sweep in last minute and obtain Best Picture. Also, trying for the Kids’ Choice Award.
Law, hahahaha. I continue my campaign for Like You Know It All to actually arrive somewhere I can see it… :O
Basterds won’t win BP. If any film is going to upset, it’ll be Basterds, but The Hurt Locker has this pretty sealed up (and deservingly so).
I’ll cry tears of happiness. But I’ll cry tears of crimson when (because it will happen) Avatar wins. But most likely I won’t cry because the Academy doesn’t know a good film/actor from a lump of shite.
1. inglorious basterds
2. a serious man
3. an education
Does any body here think that Kill Bill is better than Inglourious Basterds?
OK, I’ll use this thread to sum up what I think of the Oscars and the “Best Picture” award. It’s like the special olympics, even if you win, you’re still retarded. The only films I pay attention to these days are the films that were recognized at Cannes.
Mad? I’ll be glad Tarantino’s garbage film isn’t getting anymore praise. Hopefully something beats it out for best original screenplay as well.
I won’t be mad. Sure it was a fantastic film but I felt that other pictures were better. But that’s just me.
Honestly, the only 2 movies that really have much of a chance to win are Avatar and Hurt Locker. That is such a sad sad thing in my opinion. I didn’t think Hurt locker was trash, but it most definitely wasn’t the best movie of the 10… or at least of the ones I have seen. Avatar doesn’t even belong on that list, it is so terrible that I honestly don’t know what I would do if it won. I also think that UP shouldn’t be on there at all, it isn’t even almost the best pixar movie, much-less is it even close to oscar worthy.
Of the rest of the 10 nominees, the ones I have seen are all pretty decent. I really loved Inglourious Basterds, and District 9, no matter what everyone else says. Fuck the haters, District 9 ranks pretty high on my list of who deserves the oscar, it was my favorite blockbuster of last year.
I really would like to actually watch A Serious Man before the actual oscars.
In my humble opinion, I think out of the 10 best picture nominations, is that Inglorious Basterds was the most well-thought out movie. It had some of the most intense scenes i’ve ever scene, and it was over a glass of milk – or a piece of pastry. It also had some of the most beautiful stuff I’ve seen. It was a collection of detail, and such great writing.
IB will not win Best Picture; its surely going to The Hurt Locker, or Avatar. But I think IB has BEST CINEMATOGRAPHER hands down. Robert Richardson did a fantastic job.
I also loved that A Serious Man got nominated, that movie was so solid, and did not receive the love it deserved.
Well, it looks like a neck-and-neck race between Avatar and The Hurt Locker, with Up in the Air as the sleeper pick (in my opinion), so it looks like Inglourious Basterds will be confined to the Original Screenplay Oscar, as many great films have won in the past.
Just as long as Avatar doesn’t win, I’ll be a happy camper.
