    the middle 1/2 or so of Life of Pi was pretty damn amazing.

    a lot of the begining and end were a little too blatently Oscar-Baiting. Still well worth seeing though.

    What's [chat]'s vote for best worst movie of 2012?

    The Lorax

    I didn't see it but I would guess that American Pie sequel was probably bowel wrenchingly horrible and deeply pathetic. Even in a year that contained both Battleship and Pirhanna 3D I think an American Pie sequel pushes them off the list.

    hmm.. what did Seth Rogan shit out last year?

    zack and miri (like, 2008 i think?) was amazing

    true. But I think that was more in-spite-of Rogan than because of.

    also just want to make clear I had a total brain fart and thought that joker had said "worst movie of 2012".

    how do players get those Hope points? Cause it sounds cool but previously I have been really not a fan of games with a vauge non-renewable resources. EG: Karma in shadowrun.

    oh, it's not like Karma or Wisdom/Humanity/etc in White Wolf games where you're inexorably sliding toward madness, it's fairly easy to get back, either by spending time in hopeful places or during the Fellowship phase.

    oh ok. Yeah from what you said about the fellowship phase that makes sense.

    I have seen all of those, and I still say Django Unchained.

    Tarantino totally deserves an Academy Award for it, but won't get one, since it doesn't fit the Oscar formula. Which is stupid bullshit, and makes the Oscars stupid bullshit.

    If someone built it on their own or in a small production run yeah

    I dunno though. If valve is willing to take a loss at first and really commit to this it could be reasonable.

    Lincoln should win best actor. No question. DDL delivered.

    Hobbit was so much fun, but not really award-winning fun. Like the Avengers. Both were fantastic films but not really Oscar movies.

    Dark Knight Rises was the weakest of the three batman movies. Still great, but not really anything to go in my best of the year category.

    I still need to see Django and ZDT. And Les Mis... though I have already seen the latter on Broadway, so I am not expecting much new.

    I have seen two broadway cast as they have gone through Denver and once in London which usually got higher marks and I will tell you the movie was probably one of the best performances I have seen of the musical. And believing you won't get anything new out of it is selling it short.

    @Elki

    I tend to separate the musical from the book because they are just slightly linked. And really I wouldn't try to compare the two.

    It's really the most interesting movie of the year, by far. Which is what should really be Oscar bait; it's fairly innovative, it honestly addresses a subject that hasn't been seriously touched on in popular entertainment since... what, Roots, probably? And does it in an incredibly creative and entertaining way.

    I cannot think of another movie that has had moments that were both appalling and serious, and so funny, without really seeming to break immersion at all.

    The 660Ti they have in the $1100 version could render multiple screens at reasonable framerates, judging from its 1080p 4xFSAA performance (because that's basically what FSAA is doing). The 640 can't, though.

    it was eye-poppingly beautiful, had some action I found genuinely exciting, and there was some actual emotion at the core of the story.

    some of the mechanics of the plot were ludicrous, but whatever, that is more or less the default setting of bond films, even the really good ones.

    also the surprise appearance of that one thing in the garage near the end of the movie gave me a throbbing erection that wouldn't quit.
