The Slush: KatjaMouse: The Slush: I was talking about Silver Linings Playbook. I'm not sure how you got Les Mis from my post, but f*ck musicals

Would it improve your opinion somewhat if I tell you that it's actually an Operetta?

The difference being what?


That people who are off their meds don't randomly burst into song and do weirdly complicated choreographed dances between dialogue? Singing is the dialogue in an Opera/Operetta and we just get immersed in the world and seldom is there random complicated dancing in the middle of a scene.

You don't have to worry about the drama being interrupted by various cast members stopping the dialogue and suddenly breaking out into song.

Because they never stop singing.

I'm pulling for "Searching for Sugar Man" for best documentary. Great movie.

My not-so-bold prediction: "Lincoln" walks away with a boatload of statues.

KatjaMouse: thecpt: Wow. The guy is a champ. I'm convinced he deserved the nod now.

Probably just made him more pissed off. Which is awesome.


He was so mad he did lose his accent temporarily. I thought it added to it though. He was screaming as hard as he could and losing composure in the most controlled manner possible. I think he hasn't "acted" much recently, so its nice to see him do it again. I say that meaning Inception and shiatter Island he was kind of just the everyday guy and not a real character.

How the hell did DiCaprio not get a best supporting for Django? Are you kidding me? Tommy Lee Jones got one for Lincoln? I had no problem with Jones, but was that really an Oscar-caliber performance? DiCaprio was a farking beast in Django Unchained. What a huge snub, and it wasn't like they didn't like the movie either.

/Samuel L. Jackson and DiCaprio both deserved Oscar nominations more than Christoph Waltz, who was also good.

gunga galunga: GQueue: Lord Dimwit: Because Daniel Day Lewis was in a film this year, he will get Best Actor; it's the law (which is not to say he doesn't deserve it)

It would make him the first person ever to win 3 Best Actor Oscars.

I was about to challenge to with Spencer Tracy, but no, he only won 2.


That got me thinking on who Bill the Butcher lost to (meaning he should be going for this 4th Oscar):

Adrien Brody in "The Pianist"
Nicolas Cage in "Adaptation"
Michael Caine in "The Quiet American"
Daniel Day-Lewis in "Gangs of New York"
Jack Nicholson in "About Schmidt"

Man, that was a good year for acting nominees. They were all good.

Lost Thought 00: WTF is "Amour"


Seriously, one of the best films of the year, but toughest (emotionally) to watch.

/similar to the Canadian film 'Away From Her' a couple of years back.

Personally can't stand the guy's acting or voice. I think time has proven he just does the same droning monotonous routine. Already happened though, so it's not like my preference matters.

When did the Academy get such a rager for Silver Linings Playbook? It was average at best. Was it really that down a year?
 
2013-01-10 12:24:43 PM
And Ancora Qui from Django Unchained doesn't get nominated for best song? Bullcrap.
 
2013-01-10 12:24:59 PM
II'm a smidgen disappointed that Holy Motors didn't get a Best Foreign nom (as, after Amour, it was the best foreign-language film I viewed dating from the year just ended.)

I suppose that's a bit better, but I still can't stand "people who are off their meds" singing any/all dialogue either.  It's just not for me, and I'm ok with that.

Waltz deserves a nomination for every movie he's in from here on out just for the opening scene of Inglorious Basterds.

Coach_J: I don't understand the Oscar love for Silver Linings Playbook...don't get me wrong, I liked it, but 8 nominations like it? NFW.

Was it that bad of a year for movies...dear god...


Best acting I saw in a movie this year, so on this one, I understand the Academy.

2013-01-10 12:34:15 PM
I seriously don't get why DiCaprio isn't nom'd as much as he deserves. I think he is, in Academy voter's minds, at least, still Titanic Heartthrob guy...but the kid has proven that he has the chops, and Django was one of his best performances EVER (My fav from him is still Aviator.)

Is it wrong that I am pulling for Bradley Cooper, just so Hangover Three has to say Starring Academy Award Winner Bradley Cooper."

Sadly, I'm no confident anyone can beat Lewis in Lead category- he was freakishly good, and I'm pretty sure that, if he gets nominated, he wins: It's probably a law somewhere.

thecpt: frepnog: rotorschnee: I wish Dredd got nominated for effects or something.

the slo-mo scenes were great as was the scene when mama and crew lamblasted the opposite side of the block. LOVED that film, especially since I went in expecting it to suck and suck hard.

Did it turn out like The Raid? The trailer led people to believe it was a knock off, and I didn't want to watch it because of it.


If you truly thought that... you probably don't DESERVE to see Dredd.

DiCaprio was robbed when he didn't win for What's Eating Gilbert Grape?, and to not even be nominated for Django Unchained makes me think he's pissed someone off or something. He deserved a nomination more than Christoph Waltz. That being said, between Samuel L. Jackson and DiCaprio, Jackson deserves to win.

He didn't do much in the movie. He was just sort of there.

It wasn't an analogy. I'm talking about plot. The plot as described in the trailer was remarkably similar to that of The Raid. Not the Judges or anything, but the actual struggle.

I was asking if it turned out that way at all.

Agreed. I think I enjoyed that movie more than any other this year.


That was my favorite. Cute story.

No Affleck or Bigelow or QT for Director, wowwwwwww.  Would've liked a Looper nom for Original Screenplay and The Perks of Being a Wallflower nom for Adapted Screenplay, alas.  Knew there'd be one slot for Waltz/DiCaprio/Jackson and I'm not surprised they went with Waltz, but personally I would've put him third in the running behind DiCaprio and Jackson.  Interesting stuff, looks like a Lincoln night.

What analogy? You should watch the trailers for both movies. Both present the movie as authority figures stuck in a building working their way up floor by floor while everyone in the building is against them. Unless the Dredd movie did something different, in which case the trailers were just very similar to each other.

Dredd is very different. One was a bullshiat action movie with a ridiculous premise. The other was Dredd.

Yeah. He didn't give a bad performance by any means, and I would describe it as "pretty good" but...I know he can do better. His Oscar for Ray could not have been more deserved.

good for you if you enjoyed it for what it was.

However, I will be watching Dredd again and again over the coming years, as will lots of people, while The Raid will be forgotten. Dredd is much like Robocop in that respect - just a fantastic well-made film.

The Slush: KatjaMouse: The Slush: Yeah. That movie is depressing as f*ck. Not every good either IMO (for me, the weird tone shift at the end really killed it).

1) Yes, it was really weird how it suddenly turned into an 80's summer camp flick towards the end of the 3rd act but I could get past that. 2) You thought it was depressing as f*ck? How? Sure you're not thinking about Amour?

A formerly institutionalized, delusional, untreated bipolar man has difficulties dealing with his shattered marriage/life while living with his dysfunctional/mentally ill parents and falling for a disturbed widow half his age.  You're right, that's not depressing at all, because LOL DANCING


The fact that all the mental problems made it clear they were looking for Oscar bait, when the plot was Bollywood level, makes it worse.
