One thing I can say about tonight: **** THE OSCARS! I've seen stupid, and then there's this. I mean, how many selections can you choose wrongly?

Best Picture, Best Actor, Director, Score, Editing, Sound, Visual Effects, Cinematography, Makeup, Adapted Screenplay, Original Screenplay, Supporting actress. All shit choices. The good choices should have been: Benjamin Button, Pitt or Rourke, Fincher, Defiance, Wall-e, or Button, Dark Knight, Ironman, Ironman, Button, Hellboy 2, Doubt, In Bruges, and Amy Adams.

Slumdog Millionaire was the biggest piece of shit I've seen recently, and I saw Pineapple Express recently. It's another movie that's doing good from Fox's bribery. Think about it. Last few years, Juno, Little Miss Sunshine, and now this, they've all been independant films produced by Fox. And let's face it, Juno was a piece of shit, Little Miss Sunshine was mediocre, and Slumdog is the worst of the three. But when produced by a huge company like Fox, you can do pretty much anything. Pretty sad how it works nowadays, huh? What happened to the good movies that managed to combine action, humor, character developement, and still make you think? I'm talking about movies like V for Vendetta, Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Shawshank Redemption, and Truman Show. Those were some of the greatest movies of all time, they had everything a good movie needs. Now everything is either about huge explosions, toilet humor, or something made for teenagers to see to make them think "Hey, this movie shows I CAN be successful if I do drugs and go out partying my whole life!". Or they throw those out for the "look at how quirky and weird I can be!" approach. It's all really sad. For example, Hamlet 2. COULD have been the best comedy of 2008. HOWEVER, they had no relationship development and all character developement was sped through, lasting only about 10 seconds. If they worked more on that than showing funny situations that happened, it would have been great. They could have easily taken out one of the musical numbers of the play at the end to show it, or maybe one of the parts in the beginning that seemed to drag on.

Just my opinion, but still.

    I agree with the list of movies eg. for Vendetta, Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Shawshank Redemption, and Truman Show.

    Those movies are freaking awesome and my some of my all time favs. BUT!

    I have to disagree with the films chosen. I think Slumdog Millionare was awesome and deserved some recognition! Juno wasn't filmed well, but the story was good and that's why it was a hit.

    I loved Dark Knight and Ironman... were they better than Slumdog.. not sure.. I think all 3 were on the same level, but I guess since slumdog is something more "realistic" and not a "fantasy" story it got more cheers.

    Anyways... that's my 2 cents.

    Actually, Slumdog is not realistic. I read things that people from the slums of india said about it, and they all said it was a very unrealistic depiction of life there.

    and the "good" story about Juno? How so?
     Click to show spoiler

    All I get from the story is that Juno is irresponsible, kinda a *****, and none too bright.

    have you watched slumdog yet? I thought it was pretty good and realistic.. LOL I've been to India and China. I know how they live. It was fairly realistic... at least for the newer generation there.

    Juno did well because of the story.. I analyzed it and realized, that's the factor. It's also why the writer won an award.... The story worked.. it may sound weird, but t he setup and acts put in all worked properly...
