I hate the fact that a film like Titanic tied All About Eve with 14 Academy Award Nominations, it was the top grossing film in the world, yes - but that doesn't mean the film was that good. James Cameron is a great action director and he's a master in the CGI use to enhance viewing experiences. Look at T2, the film still stands - it looks like it was made recently when I see it here and then. I think Avatar will get some nominations for the CGI stuff and costumes - but Best Picture?
Does anyone remember how good the films of the past actually were?! - Can you hear yourselves saying this? - Star Trek for Best Picture?! - Wake up and smell the semen people! The Academy Awards recognize true directorial and feature film talent.......or they used to.
And "Precious"? Oprah is buying up Hollywood with her Blaxploitation crap. Ugh, that movie is terrible. "Ohhh, look at me I'm fat and black, I cry in the subways cuz they be hatin'!" - No! Fuck you Oprah!
Remember Treasure Of The Sierra Madre, The Hunchback Of Notr Dame (1939), The Best Years Of Our Lives, not that feel sorry for me cuz I'm black, kitchen-drama bullshit!
And Basterds better get a fucking Oscar or else I will burn the fucking Kodiak Theatre down - or whatever they call it these days!
Bette Davis love!
