If the Academy could just show us its long-form Best **** Qualification Checklist we could put this whole nonsense behind us.

ecmoRandomNumbers: cmunic8r99: nmrsnr: 1. "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" (2004) - Am I the only person on Earth who didn't really like this movie?

No. You are not.

SilentStrider: Back to the Future?


A good enough film for its time, but hardly Best Picture material.

Good enough to have been nominated, but there's no way it would have won. The Color Purple should have beaten Out of Africa anyway.

I like you. I'm putting you on my list.

Hopefully not this one:

Ishkur: jaylectricity: Why didn't you like the only comic book movie I've ever liked?

I enjoyed it too, but I didn't think it was all that special. It was above average but not worthy of the hype.

See, the problem is the plot suffered from one fatal flaw: The Joker. He's too powerful.

Here's a guy that, despite being a psychotic madman who employs schizophrenics (who are apparently expendable and therefore possess no unique skills or talents), has advanced knowledge and skillset in everything demanded by the plot from logistics, project management, construction, engineering, explosives and detonation, and civil planning.

He has friends, contacts and confidants everywhere (but he doesn't use the mob because they hate him too -- he robbed then burnt all their money), he is able to procure and execute diabolical schemes in a matter of days that would take any competent team of professional engineers weeks to prepare. He can purchase or obtain any illegal weapon, controlled substance or illicit chemical while evading detection from the authorities who closely monitor those things (and somehow smuggle them in the diciest of places like warehouses, boats, or the desk drawer of a district attorney). He has no problem getting ahold of anything that his plans require, like a fleet of busses to pull off a bank robbery or a dozen security guard uniforms to blend into a parade. And he somehow procures these things under the noses of everybody.

AND he has the magical superpower known as "off-screen teleportation", meaning that if he's not on camera, he is simultaneously nowhere and anywhere -- no home, no job, no physical place he always hangs out. No locked door, fence, building or secure area is safe from him -- he always magically finds a way in. He's always one step ahead of the good guys and immune to being tracked, recorded or anticipated. Nothing is ever learned about or from him while he is in this state of superposition yet he is apparently a relentless busybody who moves ...

ecmoRandomNumbers: I don't DO the Oscars anymore. Whoopi Goldberg got robbed when she didn't win best actress in The Color Purple. That movie should've cleaned up at the awards that year. It got ELEVEN nominations and not a single win.

Was she denied an "Oscar Oscar?"

/Piss on Whoopi

And The Princess Bride has become part of our culture, and no Oscar to be had. Perhaps the Academy should have an oops category.

nmrsnr: Cyberluddite: 27. "Cinema Paradiso" (1988)Definitely.  This might even be on my own personal list of the top 10 best movies of my lifetime.  On the other hand:

Really? Cineman Paradiso was cute and heartwarming, but, like 8 1/2, it felt too much like film-making wankery. I don't know, maybe it's just that I don't like when film makers make movies about how amazing movies are, but I prefer a movie like Hugo, which shows it's love of film and film-making, without being about films and film-making.

47. "Bringing Up Baby" (1938) - I really, really dislike this movie.

28. "The Usual Suspects" (1995) - Definitely belongs on the list

24. "City of God" (2002) - Easily the best movie on this list, IMO

1. "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" (2004) - Am I the only person on Earth who didn't really like this movie?

No. And Jim Carrey should be banned by federal law from doing dramatic roles.
