Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

The Oscars are pointless, but fun to discuss

    Nah, he was pretty dang solid in Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.

    And he was funny as hell in Snatch, but that doesn't necessarily have a lot to do with his acting.

    yeah it was pretty good

    but wasn't the best movie i saw all year

    It could be worth a nomination, though. I know I enjoyed it more than Juno, anyway.

    I will agree about The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, but Sam Rockwell and Casey Affleck both gave significantly better performances.

    In this thread, not having completely ridiculous concepts of what constitutes quality film equals being a "film snob".

    Look, if you think Ratatouille--which I loved--deserves to be mentioned in the same conversation as, oh, any of the films I mentioned, I'm more than happy to never "slap dicks" with you about film, as I generally get flustered when trying to carry on intelligent conversations with undiscerning buffoons.

    to be fair, he was moderately crazy as jesse james

    anyway, i'm kind of surprised there are people here who don't think brad pitt is a good actor. i pretty consistently enjoy his performances.

    Paul Schneider was also great in All the Real Girls, and George Washington. I wish he'd get more work.

    Oh, but speaking of Sam Rockwell, have you seen the trailer for Snow Angels? It and Quid Pro Quo are my most anticipated movies of the year, thus far.

    So the only best picture nomination I haven't seen is Michael Clayton.

    I'm kinda of upset Atonement got the nomination over Zodiac or Ratatouille even.

    I really want to see The Diving Bell and the Butterfly

    I salute you, Pooro, for making a thinly vield Movie Thread

    I really love David Gordon Green. And Snow Angels looks fantastic.

    Pineapple Express is a curiosity, though. DGG directing a stoner comedy? It's either gonna be transcendental, or a total fucking train wreck. Either way, though, I want to see it.

    Atonement was so shittily written. Zodiac should have totally had that slot.

    It is difficult for me to not get excited about movies in which Sam Rockwell appears, even momentarily.

    You know, I really liked Juno but what the fuck is it doing in the best picture category? I just don't understand. Even compared to Knocked Up and Superbad, Juno takes a back seat to them. Both movies were funnier and still managed to have some depth and sweetness underneath the crudeness.

    Just because Juno was an indie comedy with annoying music in it doesn't make it best picture material.

    I'm pissed that The Simpsons Movie didn't get nominated for Best Animated Picture of the year. I might not as good as Persepolis and its definitely not as good as Ratatouille but it had to be better than Surf's Up.
