Liberalism does seem to be a mental disease.

Do you think the Academy Awards is totally out of touch with the viewing public ?

Crash was good. Munich sucked.

The only one I saw in that entire list was Narnia.

It was "okay". All the rest I couldn't care less about...

Crash was an awesome movie. It would have been the odds on favorite before "Bareback Mounting"

The only one of those I saw was Batman Begins. Great movie.

All this hype about the "Rump Rangers" movie makes my blood boil.

And the "Academy Awards" are important to who? Hollyweirdos who are soooooo important to me? I don't think so. Those awards are important to people that are so screwed up, generally speaking, that they have all lost their relevance to me and most people I know, a long time ago.

And so the annual mutual circle-jerk commences.

I refuse to watch/pay attention to those awards ever since SPR lost "Best Picture" to that shakespear romance crap that everyone has by now forgotten about. My contempt for this organization has strenghtened ever since mikey won an award for BFC and the Passion was completely shut out of the awards.
Link Posted: 2/2/2006 11:43:35 AM EDT
I haven't seen any of the ones nominated for best director, picture, actor/supporting actor/actress.....

wow...I guess I just don't like Hollywierd anymore

I almost went to see "Munich," but then got the lowdown here.

watch it, great film. The reason people here didn't like it was because it had a "violence begets violence" message and portrayed Mossad as bad as the Palestineans(which in fact they were... and are, killing innocents makes you a scumbag whether or not you are Jewish or Arab.)

Well said.

Ignore the talking monkeys in Hollyweird.

The Academy Awards show is about highlighting more artsy, edgier films, not about what is neccesarily the most popular. For that you have stuff like the Peoples Choice Award show.
Link Posted: 2/2/2006 12:34:13 PM EDT
What? No one liked Munich? I thought it was really good.

No, they're not.

Return of the King? Gladiator? Titanic? Braveheart?

Crash was a piece of shit. I turned the DVD off halfway through and sent it back to NetFlix.
Link Posted: 2/2/2006 12:55:24 PM EDT
I am done with the movies.

Hollywood has shit in their hat for the last time with me. I entered a movie theater less than 5 times in 2005. I expect it to be 0 in 2006.
Link Posted: 2/2/2006 12:58:28 PM EDT
not much of a surprise here? Leftist people tend to be more artsy farsty, and hence, are more likely to get their agenda films nominated. Maybe having a few artsy fartsy right wingers wouldn't hurt.

Nice to see the constant gardener got a lot of attention. And Crash was an awesome movie, if you are too close minded to even finish a movie like that, how can you survive in modern America? Are you living under a rock?
Link Posted: 2/2/2006 1:04:21 PM EDT
I haven't been to any of those movies. I did see parts of Charlie/Chocolate Factory at my niece/nephew's house.

I'm closed minded so that my brains don't fall out.

I am not crawling under a rock like you...

There are movies from the right but they are never going to get a chance in the close-minded circles of the left.

When did the Mossad target innocents? I know that one of the teams seeking payback for the Munich masscre killed an innocent by accident, but the Arab terrorists target innocents on purpose. To my knowledge, Mossad has not done that. In fact, what I do know suggest they are very careful about targeting the bad guys. The book Vengence makes that clear. And Munich is based on Vengence .

George Jonas, who wrote Vengence , dislikes Munich because it distorted his book. In contrast, Robert Fisk likes the movie. But then, bin Laden recommended Fisk in one of his speeches.

And "Hollywood" keeps wondering why they are losing their audience base and their revenue's continue to drop.
Link Posted: 2/2/2006 9:15:28 PM EDT
WTF are you surprised. It's Hollywoods "We love Ourselves" celebration, why should they care what you think?

IMO crash was BY FAR the best film of the year... VERY good movie...

I must have missed something. I saw Crash in the theater and left somewhere in the middle. What a pile of garbage. It was like this liberal wet dream come true, where everone is an absolute raving racist.

<--- i am disappointed to see that the devil's rejects wasn't nominated for anything

Of course you get SOME popular movies getting a nod, but in general they tend to also go for more than just what is popular at the box office with Middle America.
