Heckling a Puppet show.
my point was that being 3 percentage points away from a perfect score isn't "FAR" from universal praise
Rotten Tomatoes hardly represents universality. I know a lot of people love Hancock, but RT has it at 35%.
Top 1000 IMDB uses have Wall-E at a 7.2
Lawnboy, listen here:
I couldn't respect when DNS kept bashing The Simpsons Movie until he finally saw it (and unsurprisingly hated it). It's the same thing in this situation. Until you see it, your opinion is not valid...
Well, to be fair, he has seen Shark Tale.
I commented on the hysteria surrounding it. Specifically in regards to an award show that set up a specific category seven years ago to address the problem of animated features in relation to the Best Picture category.
This thread has so far proven my point.
A category which, by the way, is idiotic enough to represent a medium in a desperate attempt to shut Kricfalusi followers up. I get the point you're trying to prove, but it just comes off as ignorant towards said medium. I just don't see how a random news column regarding Best Picture nomination speculations on a well-reviewed animated film is more offensive than, hell, half of the actual Best Picture nominations.
"Best Picture" represents a medium as well. Would you be fine with non-animated films winning "Best Animated Feature"?
And I apologize, but I don't have time to explore your last statement which represents an Ignoratio elenchi. Though, I will say that "yes, I do find a lot of Best Picture nominations offensive".
Shut up, Fox Executive.
No. I wouldn't. I wouldn't be fine with WALL·E winning Best Picture either as long as Best Animated Picture exists. But it fucking shouldn't. It's completely ridiculous to consider things to be getting out of hand because one random internet article resorted to the movie's praise to state animation should be considered for Best Picture, which is a completely valid opinion I wholeheartedly agree with.
Also Andrew Stanton is my uncle.
And no, this isn't only based on one article in one of the US's most circulated magazine. I am hearing this everywhere. And TIME is hardly "random". Irrelevant maybe, but not random.
it sucks that the animation category seems to have been created so that cartoons have to sit at the kids table at thanksgiving, but its not really all that different from the "best foreign film" category. plenty of foreign films have won best picture, so it's not like it's impossible - although it is highly unlikely - for a film that happens to be animated to be in the best picture category, so whatevs

all hail the power of the blue font
I personally think the rules should be more specific. I would be pissed if an animated film won Best Picture year after year. If anything, Best Foreign Film should be eliminated before Best Animated Feature.
Yeah.. you want to believe this badly, don't you? Sorry. Nowhere did I say it was bad. Nowhere did I say it wasn't going to win or didn't deserve to win within the category dictated to films of its kind. I would be having the same issue if someone wanted to nominate Mongol for Best Foreign Film and Best Picture out of overzealous hysteria.And you are technically judging that the movie isn't good enough to win (or even be nominated) for best picture, yet you haven't even seen it yet.
I don't comment on the quality of films I have not seen. Sorry that this is such a difficult concept for you.
separate but equal
This is a discussion board. 'Discussion' is the operative word. I brought a reputable article to the relevant thread to comment about the hysteria surrounding this movie that the thread is about. Nothing more; nothing less. I found the article about these overzealous people to be interesting. Many people, regardless of the Academy having an animated category, want this to at least be nominated for Best Picture:
I think this is ridiculous considering the categories. THAT was my only point. People need to calm the fuck down. It is not a slam on the movie at all. I have not seen the movie. It is a slam on a contingent of people who have seen the film and are effectively foaming at the mouth for something that makes no sense.Originally Posted by TIME
Okay, here's your original post:
At first, it would seem like you were slamming a movie you haven't seen and wanting to slap people in their faces for going ga-ga over it. You've refined your point since, yes, but you can see where we got the wrong impression from...I haven't seen this movie and won't for many years.. but I am already getting sick of it and think this shit is getting out of hand...
Calm the fuck down, people.
...and besides, discussing films and awards they might receive are their LIVES, so it's not shocking that they are discussing it...
Saw it a week ago in the US. Loved it, I'll definitely go and see it again when it's out here in the UK next week.
Lack of dialogue was really great, and quite a brave decision. I guess there's enough of the slapstick stuff to keep the kids happy. I was actually apprehensive before seeing it, because I hated the first trailer (thought it looked really boring, I guess because virtually none of the plot of the film was hinted at). But I was spectacularly proved wrong.
Probably second best Pixar, after the Incredibles. Followed by Toy Story. I need to watch Monster's Inc and Cars again to rate the rest (especially Cars since I just drove Route 66).
