They announced the nominees for the Academy Awards show a few days ago
Dont really care for awards shows that much. The real winners never get any respect
It all comes down to the time when Titanic was up for so many awards You guys remember Titanic dont you? Sure you do it was Star Wars for girls. Seems like you couldnt go two feet without coming face to face with Leo fever then.
Anyway Titanic was winning every category in the world. Even the throwaways like Best food table or Best extras. So then the time came for my favorite category BEST SPECIAL EFFECTS The one time Science Fiction rules supreme amongst the chick flicks and sappy dramas, against the comedies and the artsy stuff. Thats when my movies shine. There were two science fiction giants that year Contact (which is still a good movie in my eyes, so it stands the test of time) and Starship Troopers (Which is a really fun movie to watch, some stuff is a little dated, but it will remain a cult classic.) In any case, I thought Starship Troopers was a shoe in that year because it did well in the box office, and it was all because of the heavy use of special effects But to my surprise, the winner of special effects that year was a little movie called Titanic.
Why Titanic? The acting was not great it was even a little cheesy. And the special effects were dull. I mean they built a model boat and sunk it. Starship Troopers featured giant bugs that sucked out human brains and skeletonized a cow . Spaceships and amazing action scenes. Contact featured interdimensional travel and amazing machines. Who says a boat wins over that? Not me.
Im not interested in watching in watching the awards this year. I never saw Brokeback Mountain, I have no desire to. Im not homophobic, I just dont think that it would have gotten this much press unless it dealt with a topic like homosexual cowboys I mean come on Thats the only reason people are talking. No matter how good the story is. Its the gimmick. (smart gimmick though whatever gets people in the theaters).
No I would rather watch movies I like. Movies are expensive enough to go watch thank you. And I really dont care for what the Academy has to say about what movies are good or not. Why should you care too? All they do is pat each other on the back. I doubt half of those actors care about the art of a film more than they do their paycheck or designer dress. Thats what makes us different from Hollywood. Thats what makes us better than Hollywood.
