The list is obviously alphabetical. What's up with his Alex Proyas worshiping, I like him too, but this is starting to be too much...

Isn't Bad Lieutenant a remake of the '92 indy film Harvey Keitel starred in?

That's what I thought. But I think the full title is The Bad Lieutenant: Port of call - New Orleans.

Ohhhh. Ok. Thanks. ;) I wouldn't have looked it up on my own and I'd just go on assuming it was a remake. I know I've seen clips from it, but I wasn't all that interested. Up in the Air looks good though.

Guys, Basterds is still the best film out there! We're in late December and the other films are utter shit!

HAHA! I anticipate an Oscar for QT!

Heavy competitor: ROb Marshall's "Nine".

It's gonna be QT going against Nine. I guarantee it.

I like to see that "A Single Man" film with Colin Firth. It looks like it could be something good and the trailer reminds me of a Hitchcock film, the suspense and shots of the trailer. I kind of went down on my anticipation of "NINE". I'll probably wait for blu-ray/dvd to see it, unless I change my mind.

I agree with you totally on the "NINE" anticipation. I'm not seeing much I like. I'm gonna wait...

"Nine" isn't getting good reviews, "The Hurt Locker" and "Up in the Air" will most likely fight for the most important Oscars, while Avatar will win the technical prizes.

As much as I would love to, I don't see Basterds winning anything except the 99% sure Waltz Oscar, maybe original screenplay as well but it will be tough...

I wonder if the Oscars has the balls enough to give a best actor nom to Nic Cage for Bad Lieutenant.

I thought that with 2008. It's just because 2007 was a huge year, everything after seems flat.

I'll put my money on Up in the air for the best film Oscar, even if I haven't seen it yet. It's everywhere.


And Roger Ebert must be the only human being with a square face instead of a round/oval one.

I wouldn't be mad at the choice. I just hope the weird choices for a UP/Star Trek/Hangover win won't actually happen. I really like Hangover, but come on, I can find much better comedies that should of won an Oscar before this one. The 100th Star Trek movie shouldn't have a chance because it has nothing the other ones didn't but the hype.

I hate when people think UP should win. "UP" should stay in the best animation category if foreign films has to stay in their category. Only fair, even though I think it's really stupid that they push out all foreign films out of BEST FILM. Just goes to show how stupid the Oscars really are. They want to showcase the best, but only America's best (no, Hollywood's best.). Hollywood probably thinks foreign films do not match up to Hollywood's movies, while they make shitty movies with Will Smith's kid in them.

Dayum, hater. Star Trek is amazing. I don't know what your problem is, but it definitely deserves a chance at the very least.

I guess I could agree with that, though I haven't seen "Moon" yet but even that looks like a rip-off of Kubrick's 2001.

So because you're not a fan of the genre, this remarkable film deserves nothing, in your opinion? That's lame.

Say whattttttttt? ;D

I didn't say I hate the genre. I love 2001, Alien (the first one), the Star Trek 60's T.V. Show, etc. Just the ones that were listed are very bad or poorly original. Also nothing from the Sci-fi genre has punch people in the balls for a long time. :D The same can be said with the horror genre. I love what Rob Zombie is doing, but that's not horror IMO. It's his view on things (twisted or not) and that is what I like about his films.

Getting off-topic now, but how does someone like Rob Zombie have such freedom with his films since day one is beyond me, but he gets my respect for that. Just think of the freedom this dude has got with Hollywood films and shocked people with it. Hate his films or love them, he actually gets what he wants in his films out.

Whatever you say, compadre. Just seems like there's something wrong with your brain.

And *G*, you misread (I think) what I wrote, I was talking about Up In The Air, not Up. Up would be worse!!!!! If Up wins the best movie, not best animated, I say best movie, I think I'll have to break some stuff around me when I hear the news, just to deal with all the negative emotions that'd rush through my brain at the same time.

I haven't seen Up In The Air yet but it looks like your regular Oscar winning movie, overhyped, clooney-d, light hearted and all.

(when I say Clooney-d, I don't mean that movies starring Clooney win oscars, but it's the kind of actor that's gonna make pussies wet and that must count for something in the Academy Awards' decision's process.

Music-wise, I was always a fan of White Zombie, haven't got much into his single work as Rob Zombie.
