.... horribly overrated pseudo-serious sci-fi films that will be all but forgotten in 20 years?
definitely the worst of the nominees. major xixax fail
That post was the only "major xixax fail".
People get so fucking over-snobbified sometimes and can't admit that sometimes a movie that the mainstream actually appreciates can be the best movie of the year.
And while the 20 years comment was probably too pointless an argument to give any weight to, let's face it, this will probably be remembered by more people in 20 years than the other nominees:
Not to diss them (because they're almost all good), but:
Inglourious Basterds - will be remembered as an "oh yeah, I forgot about that one" by most people because while it's one of his better movies, it won't hold up to the memory of Pulp or Res because QT will not continue to make memorable films for the next 20 years (if he lives that long) and this will get lost in the crap.
A Serious Man - while it's better than IB, it falls into the same category, won't stay alive amongst the other Coen gems.
Up- I love it, it's great, but it's already been forgotten by most of America.
Where the Wild Things Are - People are going to hate this even more in ten years when it doesn't seem like any kind of special visual accomplishment anymore.
D9 is going to be remembered for coming out of the blue and it's going to be remembered for making a splash this early in the director's career.
Anyway, my point is you're wrong.
