    Nope, each person is entitled to his or her opinion. Unless their opinion involves Apocalypse Now being a bad movie.

    There were numerous similarities between Infernal Affairs and The Departed. Scorsese himself did not even realize it was a remake until late in preproduction, though, and to my knowledge has yet to see Infernal Affairs. I could be wrong on that, though.

    I believe The Departed was the best movie of last year, but that's another story. I feel that Scorsese should win because it's disgraceful how many times he's been snubbed. He lost for Taxi Driver. He lost for Goodfellas. He lost for Raging Bull. That's just sad.

    So you honestly think he would be happy with a pity-win? Jim Carrey is getting along just fine.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.

    Apocalypse Now, however, was not. "Heart of Darkness" was a horrible book, in my opinion, and crazy Marlon Brando running around just freaked me out.

    I give it a "One Bud," out of a possible Six Pack rating.

    I think Little Miss Sunshine was the best movie this year...

    I think A Scanner Darkly should have gotten an animation nomination.

    He was supposed to be freaky... >_>

    That's got to be one of my all time favorite movies. So damn dark. That and 'Charlie don't surf' XD

    In anycase, I gave up on award shows a few years back. I think it was when Tool's Lateralus didn't get nominated for anything during the MTV Music Awards. All faith just died right there, and the cool points MTV had been running off for all those years were spent in one glorious moment.

    And Seren is right... Scanner Darkly should definatly get something if there is any credit to that award show.

    So no... don't really care. It's not like I'm going to rent, buy, or see a movie because it won something anyway. Hell, my normal method of movie going is stay the hell away from anything Ebert says is good. I don't treat award show's differently. :P

    cooler -

    scorsese knew he was *ripping off shamelessly* making a remake of infernal affairs.....

    he even dittoed that slap up joke or whatever.
    It ain't pretty,After the show,It ain't pretty when the pretty leaves you,
    With no place to go,If you think you need it,Here's the place to feed it,But it ain't pretty....
    Arm yourself because no-one else here will save you,The odds will betray you,And I will replace you,
    You can't deny the prize it may never fulfill you,It longs to kill you,Are you willing to die?
    The coldest blood runs through my veins,You know my name...
    Ode to the carnage of one resident modship.......

    Yeah, I'm not even interested now because Scanner didn't get any credit.

    He probably wouldn't be happy with it, but I honestly believe he deserves it for The Departed, not just his past achievements.

    Sorry, dude...I think you're a pretty awesome guy, but I have to burn you at the stake for that one. Apocalypse Now is perfection in cinematic form.
