Pirates, Gerry, Owning Mahony, and The Cooler should be watched by the end of the week.

Does Big Fish count for 2003? I hope not, as I just don't have time to see it...



Oh, I would also like to take this moment to remind everyone about the stellar dvd releases in January, not the least of which is Band Of Outsiders. Transfer and extras are primo -- I would keep that in mind when picking my 5 dvd noms...
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.

Can somebody share a link to some 2003 DVD releases? I think we need some help with this category...

Once again, I encourage everyone to vote, even if your ballot has a lot of empty spaces. We really need more votes...

Let's not forget the Fox Studio Classics such as SUNRISE (:wink:), Trouble in Paradise, and the Best of the Will Ferrell.

And um.... may I ask for an extension for January 28th perhaps? I ask because I'm seeing Monster, Girl With A Pearl Earring, and the House of Sand and Fog on the 27th. Is this extension possible or do you just want what I have now?

just enter www.dvd.ign.com and watch the release dates on each dvd.  that form you'll know if it's 2003 or not.
context, context, context.

well, just remember even if you dont nominate the films, if you see them before final voting you'll be able to vote for them as long as they're on the ballot.

so if patricia clarkson's work in the station agent is not going to be considered supporting (which i'm pretty sure i read somewhere in here), does that mean that the same will go for bobby cannavale?

Can we vote for 400 Blows as a dvd, seeing as how it was remastered and has more extras than the original Criterion oop disc?

If this version was released in '03, then I would imagine so
