    Academy Awards: Best Picture

    Here are the nominees.
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    Is this who we would like to win or is it who do we think will win?

    I haven't seen any of those movies.

    Re: Academy Awards: Best Picture

    I looked at the list of nominations, there was only one movie in any category that I've seen. So I will boldly predict that Star Wars will win the Oscar for best makeup. That's the only thing I can do.

    I haven't either RBA, so I went with who I think will win, Brokeback Mountain. I am somewhat curious to see this film, because part of me wonders if it really is that great of a film, or if it is only being honored because it is controversial.

    Re: Academy Awards: Best Picture

    the chances of Piqua's theaters carrying any of these movies is about as good as me being nominated for Best Spelling in an Original Written Drama. or something like that. which means i usually have to wait for the DVDs.
    this leads up to the fact i have only seen one of these movies, in Crash - which i enjoyed quite a bit. for this, it gets my vote.
    and i like Sandy Bullock.

    I've seen 3 of them (not Crash nor Munich) in fact I've never seen a trailer or read a thing about Crash.

    Me either (probably more a reflection on me than anything else I guess).

    As much buzz as there is for Brokeback Mountain lately, I think Crash has a very good chance of winning Best Picture. And not just because of the subject matter of BM. From what I've heard, Crash was really good and it's still generating a lot of buzz.

    Crash is the only one I have seen and that was really good. I think Walk The Line should have been nominated. That was my favorite movie from last year.

    Re: Academy Awards: Best Picture

    Crash is an excellent film by Paul Haggis with a tremendous ensemble cast (that won Screen Actors Guild Award) from Don Cheadle and Matt Dillon to Thandie Newton, Terrence Howard, Ryan Phillipe...Sandra Bullock is also at her best.

    I also thought Good Night and Good Luck was terrific and Capote may be the best of the three.

    I have to see Brokeback Mountain and Munich before voting here though.

    Good Night, and Good Luck.

    I've seen them all besides Munich.

    Crash: Misguided and Dangerous?

    Personally, I thought "Crash" was vastly overrated. There were a few scenes that were quite touching or powerful. But for the most part, I thought it was a gross oversimplification of complex race issues. Sometimes laughably non-subtle.

    I'd give the movie a tentative thumbs up at best, and am surprised that people like Roger Ebert are calling it the year's best film.

    This guy was a bit harsher than me, but I agree with a lot of his points.

    it makes these people seem so nasty, so over-the-top racist, that we can say, “Yikes, I definitely don’t think like them!” Racism is one of the most complicated social issues we face today, and this is one of the least complicated “smart” movies I’ve seen in a long time.

    Alfred really liked Crash. I haven't seen it, and I'm not really sure what it's about. I wanted to see Capote, but somehow missed it.

    We both like Brokeback Mountain and Good Night and Good Luck. I'd give the nod to Brokeback Mountain I think if I had a vote. It really is a good movie, IMO.

    I have no desire to see Munich at this point in my life. I catch it on DVD later, if I change my mind.

    Good Night and Good Luck.... easily, tremendous flick. Although I have yet to see Capote so who knows if my vote would be different if I saw it.

    I really want to see "Good night, Good Luck". I'm just waiting for it to hit the brew pub theatres.
