Quote from: Captain of Industry on March 07, 2010, 01:02:48 PMActually I said, "Only fully serious films which will be remembered by all and for eternity deserve this award," and it was intended to be a sardonic jab at New Feeling's accusation of District 9 being a semi-serious film that will be forgotten in 20 years (as if that alone disqualifies it from bestness).I thought "fully serious" and "by all and for eternity" were good enough joke indicators.
Quote from: Sleepless on March 06, 2010, 05:23:35 PMD9's screenplay alone is an awesome lesson in structure and originality.
Quote from: New Feeling on March 06, 2010, 02:41:09 PM.... 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
Quote from: RegularKarate on March 08, 2010, 05:26:30 PMA Serious Man - while it's better than IB, it falls into the same category, won't stay alive amongst the other Coen gems.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.
Quote from: Alexandro on March 09, 2010, 04:57:15 PMwell.I don't know if D9 will be remembered in 20 years. I think it will be but I don't know. Inglorious I don't even doubt it. Good or bad, it's a Tarantino movie, and he's just too much of a big name with too large a following. All of his films will be remembered. Jesus, some people even remember Four Rooms and that is one horrid little movie. People remember Jackie Brown, a film which bombed in 97. You may argue i'm talking about film nerds remembering these things but film nerds are the only ones that remember movies. The rest of the world don't even give a shit. By the standard of popular culture, Titanic would be the best film of 97. It isn't. Unless Disney and Pixar go broke or something, Up, like every other disney film in existence, will be popular in 20 years. If they can make something like Oliver and Company stand the taste of time, they can do anything.
Quote from: pete on March 09, 2010, 09:10:56 PMjust because people remember something, ie. aren't amnesiac, doesn't mean it'll be "popular". nobody saw four rooms. your reasons are ridiculous and just because people know a title you talk about is a movie doesn't mean it'll still be "popular."
Quote from: Gold Trumpet on March 09, 2010, 09:17:13 PMI'm confused by the conversation. I never realized memorability was the first topic when discussing 'Best Film' or anything. It sounds like a good way to not talk about the film because I really don't know what anyone is saying here. I voted for District 9. I calmed on my praise, but I still believe it deserved to win. I'm interested in why people really don't think it was that good.
