In addition to being chock full o' inaccurate information, the overwhelming majority of the people that populate that site are simpletons. It's not a hub for worthwhile insight and valuable critical analysis so much as it is the internet equivalent of the lunch table where the fanboys sit at.

    IMDB is as one-sided and bias as it gets, so taking a score on there as gospel makes little to no sense. If one is just looking to have their own already-formed opinion validated, then, sure, I could see why someone would latch on to a number from over there. But trying to pass that off as some kind of accurate barometer for a film's general reception couldn't be any more misguided.


    I'm not a big fan of Gangs of New York (except for Daniel Day Lewis' predictably awesome turn as The Butcher), but I'm definitely in agreement with you in regards to Goodfellas being Marty's masterpiece. As far as I'm concerned, that's the finest American movie of the past 30 years.

    That Goodfellas lost the Best Picture Oscar to Dances With Wolves is just about all the proof I need that the Academy Awards are a total friggin' farce.
    Yeah totally agree with that it shows how meaningless they really are

    Oh akbar....

    - Quvenzhane Wallis didn't get recognized for her brilliant work in Beasts of the Southern Wild
    - Nicole Kidman did get nominated for The Paperboy (WTF?)
    - Game of Thrones didn't get a single nomination for anything (Dinklage won a Globe last year)

    And this is just the stuff off the top of my head.

    None of this is really worth caring about (both the Globes and the Oscars are pointless affairs that hardly ever recognize the talent truly most deserving as they're more political affairs than anything else) but there were most definitely some shake-ups and surprises this year.
    Hopkins got shutout in a really tight category so I see how that happened.

    Directors looked like they just chose movies from the drama category

    Maybe Oscars will look better since they dont divide it up

    Well the Globes needed a reason to invite Adam Sandler to the event probably.

    I watched Million Dollar Baby the other day. I really enjoyed it & the last part of the movie really struck a cord with me since I'm a quadriplegic but nowhere near that extent. I couldn't imagine being in that condition but it makes for good drama. Plus I'll watch pretty much anything with Clint in it.

    Also watched A History of Violence again today. I'm a big fan of Mortensen in this with just the right kind of violence IMO. Jesus Richie...

    I'm about to watch The Wrestler for the first time tonight. I bet this movie will be great.

    If you get the chance at some point watch Django by Sergio Corbucci, the inspiration for this film. Great film.

    Leonardo Dicaprio should be great as the racist slave owner.

    I'm more excited to see Christoph Waltz as the German Bounty hunter. It reminds me of his part in Inglorious Bastards as the Nazi Jew hunter that got him an Oscar.
