Right there with ya, man. Right there with ya.

Dammit, now I really want to see Up again.
 
2010-03-07 09:25:32 PM
"What movie will win visual effects?!?!"

Yeah. I wonder, anouncer-lady. It's sure to be a shocker.

Cornelius Dribble: I was never a big fan of John Hughes's movies, but from all I hear he was a wonderful human being. Funny how often you see that inverse relationship between personality and genius.

The thing that shocked me to find out after he died is how quickly he worked. Ferris Bueller was written in 10 days. Sixteen Candles in 2 days while he was working on another script.

He apparent wrote volumes every day of his life, later shifting to lengthly emails to friends.

Goddammitsomuch.


I know, something in my eye. Up is part of my rather large DVD collection. Bought it the first week it was available.
 
2010-03-07 09:26:06 PM
I'm down with Up.

LCat: There should be a warning on the cover of ASM: Must Understand Jewish Humor/Culture To See This Movie. I honestly can't even explain most of the things you need to know for this movie. it's just stuff I grew up with.

The beginning segment was an homage to Jewish folklore and a lot of the shtetl humor that came over to the States, and it sets the tone of the whole movie in that... nothing happens, even when it's awful, there's always tomorrow and it's always just as bad. Or not.


Gotcha, thanks!

I don't think the visual FX guys from District 9 or Star Trek even bothered to show up, which sucks because any other year they would have had a good chance.
 
2010-03-07 09:26:38 PM
I thought Star Trek was okay. A little overrated but they needed to get younger actors for the series.

Dust in eye, excusemeforasecond....

My wife and I watched "Up" on our couch, after the first 15 minutes we were in tears, looking at each other saying "You CANNOT die!"

DamnYankees: "What do I do now, Ellie?"

I didn't like Up as a whole. I thought the 2nd half was boring.

But I was sobbing so hard through the first 15 minutes. Damn, I think I might even still have something in my eye...

dumbandilikeit: GungFu: UP!!dumbandilikeit: My problem with all these trailers is that at least half of the movies aren't yet on DVD.

I absolutely hate going to a movie theater. Get annoyed with all the people talking, munchiing, slurping, etc.


All the best films nominated, apart from AVATAR is out on dvd. The Hurt Locker has been out for a long time now.

Blind Side, Precious, Avatar, A Serious Man, Up in the Air. That's like 5...or "half" that are not on DVD.


Wrong.

Just Avatar. Trust me, I've downloaded all of the rest. Dvdrips.

skinink: I thought Star Trek was okay. A little overrated but they needed to get younger actors for the series.

See I thought they were too young to be believable as someone worthy of holding that level.

SO MUCH THIS! We watched the rest of the movie in each others' arms. A farking AMAZING film.

Mugato: I don't think the visual FX guys from District 9 or Star Trek even bothered to show up, which sucks because any other year they would have had a good chance.

To be totally honest, I don't think the CGI in Star Trek was all that amazing. Or maybe it just wasn't noticeable. That movie did so much with pure art design and use of color.
 
2010-03-07 09:28:14 PM
I'm going to have to take a Mulligan on this next bit.
 
2010-03-07 09:28:20 PM
Who are these people? Never heard of either of them.
 
2010-03-07 09:28:29 PM
Yeah right I can think of a good log in: I didn't like Up as a whole. I thought the 2nd half was boring.

But I was sobbing so hard through the first 15 minutes. Damn, I think I might even still have something in my eye...


I agree. I think Up is quite overrated, and probably doesn't make Pixar's top 5. But it's first act is quite something.

Mugato: I don't think the visual FX guys from District 9 or Star Trek even bothered to show up, which sucks because any other year they would have had a good chance.

It was the same thing with Fantastic Mr Fox; any other year, it would have won, but it didn't stand a chance due to Up.

*wonders how many Grimaces had to die for Zoe Saldana's train on her dress*
 
2010-03-07 09:28:49 PM
Nice. What movies are these two women in?
 
2010-03-07 09:28:50 PM
Zoe looks like she should be singing at the Copa Cabana with a selection of fruit on her head.
 
2010-03-07 09:28:50 PM
Zoe Saldana killed Kevin from up for her dress.
 
2010-03-07 09:29:00 PM
dumbandilikeit: Who are these people? Never heard of either of them.

No idea but that fella in the black dress is pretty hot.
 
2010-03-07 09:29:01 PM
Zoe....just wow.
 
2010-03-07 09:29:02 PM
Hey, it's Sally Sparrow.
 
2010-03-07 09:29:05 PM
dumbandilikeit: Who are these people? Never heard of either of them.

You don't know who Zoe Saldana is? She probably has had the best year of any single female actress in term of both quality and box office.

Will be really interesting to see what direction Pixar takes if they can ever get themselves out from under the boot heel of Disney's marketing machine.

DontMakeMeComeBackThere: Zoe....just wow.

Indeed.

Nothing can kill the Grimace.

Bah, gotta go help clean things up down the hall.

Back in a bit.
 
2010-03-07 09:30:31 PM
A fine Hughes tribute (albeit, a bit long and unnecessary to bring in ALL of those people), then "Up?"

I can't even describe to people what it's ABOUT without crying a little.

Way to double-team my emotions, Academy.
 
2010-03-07 09:30:46 PM
They chose Cars as John Lasseter's sample? The worst Pixar movie? Dumb.
 
2010-03-07 09:31:25 PM
Saldana was about two millimeters away from an epic wardrobe malfunction there.

Coraline would have beaten it too. Mr. Fox was a strong third in a ridiculously good year for animation.

Just looked her up. I get to do a *facepalm* now. Duh. Me bad.

TheSilverOne: Coraline would have beaten it too. Mr. Fox was a strong third in a ridiculously good year for animation.

It also had one of the best trailers for an animated movie ever, even if the movie itself wasn't very good (9).
 
2010-03-07 09:32:22 PM
So that's probably the first time a Wallace and Grommit film did not win.

Two hosts, two presenters for every award...must be a union job.

/Just kidding...I'm really pro-labor
//How many union members does it take to screw in a light bulb?
///Twenty-three. Ya gotta problem with that?

Yeah, Deep Space Nine had FX that were almost comparable a decade ago but Star Trek should get recognized eventually.
 
2010-03-07 09:32:44 PM
Logorama? That looks like an acid trip.
 
2010-03-07 09:32:52 PM
DamnYankees: They chose Cars as John Lasseter's sample? The worst Pixar movie? Dumb.

It was his baby; that movie was in the pipeline for a decade, and would have been canceled a dozen times if not for Lasseter.

/It was his one big mistake

Absolutely this. But I'll be damned if it's not the most depressing animated film since Bambi. And I can't imagine having to even TRY to explain the "doctor" scene to a child.
 
2010-03-07 09:33:53 PM
I just happened to look at Avatar's box office numbers; I hadn't seen them in a month or more.

$2.5B

Jesus.
 
2010-03-07 09:34:11 PM
Damn most of those documentaries look very depressing.
 
2010-03-07 09:34:14 PM
Yeah, screw Nick Park! Do something new, dude.
 
2010-03-07 09:34:38 PM

I haven't seen it yet, but I'm sure Gaiman and Selick will eventually win if they keep making movies together (and I hope they do).
