sonofa...stupid junk foreign movies

So that stupid Slumdog Millionaire won Best Picture..

IMO it's not deserved...why?

Changling and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

I saw TCCBB at the theater and just saw Changling last night..

both movies were EXCELLENT....
The way they were filmed,the acting,the characters..both movies deserved more awards.

If I wanted to watch a east indian movie..I'd get Bride and Prejudice again...

Slumdog Millionaire had it's venue..The Golden Globes and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.

In my opinion the Oscars should go to American movies..
and until SM was was mostly American movies.

This is the Academy Awards..filmed in L.A.
This isn't the U.N. international awards..

It probably sounds like I'm being a bit of a well something..but it's just how I feel.


  1. Maybe they should make the Olympics a purely Greek thing again? If you want it to be the biggest and the best - it will have to have some foreign flavour to it.

  2. I wouldn't mind if Greece took the Olympics back.

  3. then no American movies should get German or French awards either? Come on, be realistic. We just recently had the Germany version of the Oscars the other week, with Tom Cruise and others attending.

    Just like "buy American"... so I guess I shouldn't be driving a Chevy but a VW instead? And I bet most of your computers parts and other electronics are made in Taiwan or Japan, etc.

    I haven't seen the movie yet, but if it won the Oscar, as a foreign film, that must have been for a good reason.

  4. P.S. a German film won best short film... guess it didn't deserve it either?

  5. i totally agree it didn't deserve it at all... i saw it and didn't thnk it was anything special... the cinematography was amazing though, it was fantastically shot, but that's it... it basically won because it was 'indian' and people are bending over backwards to cozy up to them at the moment and it's 'cool' to be involved with India but as for reserving the oscars for only american films?, that's a bit fucking stupid. kinda like the 'world series'


Why So Serious?
