Considering some of the films that critics have been drooling over this year... [In reply to] Can't Post

...that I absolutely DESPISED are having awards dumped on them like nobody's business, I am both unsurprised and still reeling a bit from the feeling of disgust I had reading the Academy nominees list yesterday. (And this is coming from someone who used to be an avid Oscar-watcher and award winner-follower.)

It's just a little incredible to me that only two films really made me feel that I was watching something truly special this year - Pi and AUJ - and one of them has been dismissed by many critics as schlock. (Critics whom, in the past, I would have read and agreed with readily.) I suppose I'm feeling a little bit of whiplash in all of this. Crazy

'I do not know what is happening. The reason of my waking mind tells me that great evil has befallen and we stand at the end of days. But my heart says nay; and all my limbs are light, and a hope and joy are come to me that no reason can deny. Eowyn, Eowyn, White Lady of Rohan, in this hour I do not believe that any darkness will endure!' And he stooped and kissed her brow.
