  1. If your best rationale for an alternative win is for the "surprise factor", that's pretty telling.
  2. Personal preferences. From an objective standpoint, however, agreed. SLP or LoP winning would be shocking. Lincoln is textbook Academy material.
  3. BP race is over. Lincoln is going to win that handily. SLP is a wonderful story and I realize a lot of people are rooting for it, but the chances of it pulling off this upset are slim to none.Shocked at the Affleck snub...that's a complete travesty. Same for Bigelow, but I'm over it. Thought the film was overrated. Really glad that Hooper didn't get in.
  4. 2012 Best Picture Thread

    Not seeing any reason for the continued LM love. Unless I'm missing something, the reviews aren't particularly great; it should lose momentum over these next few weeks. Lincoln assumes the position of favorite, with Argo and ZDT playing the possible spoiler.
  5. Most overrated film in IMDb top 10

    [*]The Shawshank Redemption - Overrated. So overrated. [*]The Godfather - Not deserving. Top 25 or so for me, however. [*]The Godfather: Part II - YES. Properly rated. Complete masterpiece. Better than the first. [*]Pulp Fiction - Standard Tarantino worship by the Internet. Not deserving. [*]The Good, the Bad And the Ugly - Deserving. Fitting conclusion to one of the best trilogies ever. [*]12 Angry Men - Great movie. I don't know if it's top 10 material. [*]Schindler's List - Deserving. Barely. [*]The Dark Knight - No. Just no. A fun superhero movie and not much more. Place isn't surprising given how overrated Nolan is by the current generation. Worst film in the top ten by far. [*]The Lord of the Ring: The Return of the King - I'm a huge LOTR fan, so this is completely biased and I say yes. [*]Fight Club - Top 10 in the "cool" metric. Not top 10 in the "best" metric.
  6. Third Godfather was a shame. First two are absolute masterpieces.On the topic of Spiderman, I don't know...I never understand the love for the films. I thought the first was good, second was mediocre, and third was terrible. Most people seem to like the trilogy more than I do, however, so I'm the outlier in that opinion.
  7. I disagree, but good set of films...can see why other people would think so. My list looks something like this:1. LOTR2. Dollars Trilogy3. Three Colors Trilogy4. Indiana Jones (I like to pretend the 4th never happened.)5. Bourne6. Original SW Trilogy7. Vengeance Trilogy8. Death Trilogy9. Dark Knight Trilogy10. Toy StoryI probably missed a few, but these immediately came to mind. All of them fairly excellent. It pains me not to put Terminator on the list, but T3 was just not good. It's sad how often great concepts get butchered as more films get made.EDIT: Holy shit, forgot Indy. Added.
  8. It's not my only problem with my film, but I agree that the editing was, in my opinion, one of the bigger flaws. Bit of a mess. Nolan's films have never wowed me with their editing however, so I wasn't shocked.If you're going to claim it was a fun movie, I certainly agree. It was really enjoyable. Just don't understand the constant technical praise the series received.
  9. Weekend #s Bond 90M Lincoln 900K Ralph Flight good holds

    Irrelevant considering the audience. No one is saying BD2 won't have a huge opening. Don't understand why Twilight advocates are getting butthurt over the fact that there isn't a significant overlap between the core audience of that film and Skyfall.
  10. Strongest Avenger?

    Not sure if serious...but completely false.On the topic of this discussion, it would be Thor in terms of overall power. People are confusing brute strength for power.
  11. Twitter Buzz Is 'SKYFALL' High

    This has to be the single funniest thing I've read today. Excellent. Who is this guy?
  12. Les Miserables (December 25, 2012)

    I'm glad movie posters aren't indicative of quality...good god, those are putrid. The film should still be excellent.
  13. Who will be the next Bond?

    I suppose I am one of the few that is really hoping it doesn't go to Fassbender. Please don't give him the license to kill. I love most of his work. I don't see the Bond parallels.
  14. Of course, but it's not some absolute impossibility. T2, Aliens, LOTR: TTT, TDK, and SW: ESB come to mind. Definitely a tall task though, agreed. I'm hoping we can add TA2 to the list.
  15. These excellent reviews are really encouraging. Looks like QoS will be sandwiched with two of the best Bond films ever.
