Roughly 0.

None of them were in the top thirty, yes thirty top grossing movies of the year!

It's a political thing.
Link Posted: 3/3/2006 8:55:35 AM EDT
None of those.

2005 must have been the WORST year for movies ever.

Best flick of the year: BATMAN BEGINS

I have not seen any of those movies in the theater, and I don't plan on renting any of them when they are released on DVD.

I heard that "Chronicles of Narnia" (sp?) made more money than all 5 "Best Picture" movies combined.
Link Posted: 3/3/2006 9:14:47 AM EDT
1/2

I stared to watch Crash, but turned it off halfway through. Typical "everyone's a victim" bullshit.

Didn't see any of them.

I did see something on TV the other day about what an important year it was for films. Bareback Mountain, Capote, and Trans-America (or something) all got some kind of nomination. It is very important that homosexuality/gender identity issues be ... this sentence isn't even worth finishing. Hollywood sucks.

Serenity came out. That alone makes 2005 one of the greatest years for movies ever.
Link Posted: 3/3/2006 9:35:14 AM EDT
none..and no plans to do so, although "Crash" seems interesting, I'll wait until DVD to even make a decision. "Munich" has already been done IMO, "Sword of Gideon" wasn't too bad.

The saving grace of the year is that they didn't include "Transamerica" in the best movie category. "Capote" and "Brokeback" ought to be enough for the "under-represented" 2-3% of America. I predict lots of movies on abortion in the coming year.

Saw Crash. Not bad. Not great, but not bad.

Guy had it on DVD here on the rig. Was full of your typical hollyweird liberal bullshit, but it did make me think about a few things. It is a small world out there.
Link Posted: 3/3/2006 9:39:54 AM EDT
None.
Link Posted: 3/3/2006 10:17:03 AM EDT
saw crash.

The money figures do not lie though.....what the critics and what the consumer thinks are good movies are two different things.
Link Posted: 3/3/2006 10:25:21 AM EDT
Crash is actually not a bad movie. It ain't great, but it busts up most of your typical movie-making stereotypes. It is not an "everyone is a victim" movie.

My one complaint: the car-jacking criminals are also philosophical, introspective, articulate gentlemen with a mildly askew moral compasses, not the sociopathic degenerates that actually populate the prisons in America. It makes criminals too human. Most aren't, at least by any standard that I use to judge humanity.

I haven't seen any of the others.

Watching movies cut into my range time
Link Posted: 3/3/2006 10:52:57 AM EDT
Crash and Munich, both were very good, IMO.
Link Posted: 3/3/2006 11:03:20 AM EDT
None, but my wife & i did want to see Munich.

In the vicinity of zero.

None.

The movies I enjoy watching hardly ever get nominated.
Link Posted: 3/3/2006 11:49:33 AM EDT
I guess this proves that Hollywood is out of touch with the American public.

Zero.

Saw Walk The Line and Dukes of Hazzard.

Only 2 worth seeing IMO.

Link Posted: 3/3/2006 11:59:45 AM EDT

I saw none of the nominated films, I won't watch them on DVD, if they ever hit cable I don't expect I'll watch them there, either.

In 2005, I saw Serenity in the theater twice. That's the sum total of the support I gave to Hollywood last year.

This year, I *might* see "V for Vendetta" because the premise of the movie seems interesting and the trailers are good (plus anything with Natalie Portman in it can't be *all* bad).

- CD

The only one that interests me is Munich.

None.

I also find it sickening that any of those five movies can make
millions of dollars ,and that those actors make millions of dollars,
while I work my ass off to earn a meager wage,and pay 40 %
to support the regime.

Saw Good night and good luck just before I deployed.

I've seen 0 but I wanted to see Good night and good luck.

Munich looked interesting untill I found out that they destroyed it...


All the others looked gay.
