Wahahahaha.. piss off Avatar!!!

That film's story is so flawed and unoriginal, it's actually laughable.

Sorry Zizo, a record-breaking movie in production cost and profit doesn't always mean quality - we live in a period of extensive CGI abuse and young people love that...That's why it made so much money. Profits from hype rather than content.
Revenge of the Fallen was shit, but I loved it because it was just like the Die Hard perspective: all-out explosive, a bit of humour, stupid, invincible protagonists which is laughable in its own idiotic stance.

I thought that Avatar's story was very flawed and failed to keep me interested... I kept picturing Baba Sanfour in my head...
It was as a piss-off as Titanic...

I just think that Cameron actually over did it with Avatar.

And it's not like Avatar lost the awards to some Jennifer-Aniston-is-pushing-40-but-still-single-and-lonely rubbish chick romantic "comedy"..
It's lost to a superb film like The Hurt Locker so I think it's fair.


Just my opinion... I just haven't forgiven Cameron for shit-face Titanic and I find it difficult to let go of the grudge :p

IMO The Hurt Locker is just yet another movie about Irak. Nothing new about it, nothing WOW about it. On the other hand a new technology was used in Avatar and i also think that Zoe Saldana should have been at least nominated because she played her role very well in that movie.

I'm disappointed but anyway Cameron doesn't need to win an Oscar. His filmography and reputation are enough to consider him one of the best ever. He's like Ed Harris, deserves to win but doesn't.

Another reason why Genesis is averagely cool. Avatar is a great movie, but scooping all of the awards because you used the latest technologies?? Hell no! There were far more movies with a much better and deeper story that got recognized. Sandra Bullock was overrated in "The Blind Side", and I was pleasantly surprised to see Mo'Nique also grabbing an Oscar, who knew she had it in her after all of her previous work.

Kamil, I really think that Oscars should not reward voice-overs. That's what Saldana and all of the Avatar cast did. Acting is much more than vocals (You look at people like Laurence Ollivier and you understand what I'm talking about).

Christopher Waltz got the Oscar for best supporting actor?? More than deserved. Much more. The guy put in a monster performance. Jeff Bridges also deserved the Oscar even if his film was less than average in my book.

Who else wants a pass to the Titanic hate-boat??

Welcome to DJ.Malaria you may wonder why I called this group Dj Malaria.
Just like Malaria takes over a person's body when it hits them i want my music's originality to control the soul of whoever hears it in that sense my music is more powerful than Malaria,and I'm sure it will but in a positive way of
course.

Titanic? DO NOT GET ME STARTED.

That movie's popularity was so sickening, it surpassed all fads and cliches that I've seen in my 18 years that I spent in Lebanon. We the Lebanese are notorious for taking silly things and turn them into a mass mania and following... more like a religion!

We went from black-window-glassed BMWs, to extremely loud exhausts, to baseball caps on every bloke's head, bandanas, scooters, carrying a packet of cigarettes though you don't smoke, carrying your books in your arm although you have the actual backpack on your damn back!... (oh I could go on forever)..

...But nothing tops every, and I mean EVERY, female in the country walking around with a dossier that has the Titanic movie poster printed on its front and Celine Dion's soundtrack lyrics on the back of it... The image of them trouncing around in school, on the street, in college, fucking everywhere.. is more traumatising for me than when I realised there will be no more Captain Majed on telly.

I also blame Titanic for popularising the sex-in-the-car conduct. When in fact, it's the most pathetic place to have sex in; it says that you don't have your own place, you can't afford a hotel for even one night, and you have no respect for your woman (or yourself if you care) at all! Unless your car is the Bat-mobile, piss off and go back home!

And you know what makes it worse? Why the fuck would you take the woman you love and shag her in a car when you're onboard the BIGGEST MOST LUXURIOUS OCEAN LINER IN THE WORLD!?!?!?!? Could you really not find a room!? In a supposedly romantic movie, why would you do it in a car? Where's the romance exactly? Oh, yea... it's her hand sliding on the window... True... true... Well, Cameron... Jellyfish sex is more arousing for me!

I have to go (lucky for you).. Manchester United vs Milan kicks off in a bit...

Kamil, I really think that Oscars should not reward voice-overs. That's what Saldana and all of the Avatar cast did. Acting is much more than vocals (You look at people like Laurence Ollivier and you understand what I'm talking about).


Yes, I second that. Can I add Antoine Kirbej? He's legend on my spectrum!

You Should watch the making.. actually it was her doing all the acting and not just computer arrangements.. the computer just changed the external appearance for the actors (for the characters i mean - i know everythin's done by comp in this movie).. like making the Blue Skin thingy and changed their body shape.. but facial appearance remained the same.. you can really see ZOE in Neytiri .. and the expressions, acting and Emotions are all hers..(and really deserved an Oscar)
--- Sandra Bullock was VERY Overrated in her movie..

I know it's not the Best Story for a Movie.. but it has the elements that covers that and much more!! ..
2enno i watched it twice in Theaters .. and I was Blown away.. no matter how Amazing some other movies can be this year.. it still can't TOP the Greatness of the work done in "AVATAR".. qu'en meme ya3ne :P

YES!! ..I mean it's great and all.. but Best Motion picture this year and Best Direction (where James Cameron was SEVERELY treated Unfair- no matter how Great of a Job Katheryn Bigelow Did)..!
dunno..

anyways everyone has his own taste in these stuff..

actually movies are pretty much like music where not necessarily the most popular is the best and def. vice versa!
AVATAR is a great movie indeed! loved the 3D animation but honestly i wasnt wowed at the technology! i dunno why everyone is saying that it's revolutionary! it's great and took lots of work but didnt actually introduce any NEW concepts! 3D been there for a while now.. it's not like MATRIX or most notably STARWARS movies! these are specimens for REVOLUTIONARY technology in film making!
anyway cant really say if it was fair enough for HURT LOCKER to win the oscar since i didnt see all the movies but as i said earlier not necessarily the best picture always wins, after all it's all a matter of popularity and voting!

gotta admit though, i think Christoph Waltz's performance surely deserves an Oscar regardless of the competition. Also i thought Inglorious Basterds would pick an Oscar at minimum.. oh well!..

Sandra Bullock is just awesome! :mrgreen:
