The Oscars arent worthy.. [In reply to] Can't Post

I have just seen The Devil's Backbone, and was absolutely thrilled by it, visionary direction and movie. If the Hobbit has similar quality, then its not the question whether its worthy of the Oscars but whether the Oscars are worthy of this movie. After seeing Pan's labirynth, Cronos and now 'Backbone' GDT advanced to the top of my favorite directors list, and I have not the slightest doubt the Hobbit will set new standards of moviemaking.

And no PJ & GDT wont aim for any awards, they know I hope that movies that aim for awards are hollow and usually fall short and flat. The movie is a reward in itself. Critic awards are for the media.

"The past tempts us, the present confuses us, and the future frightens us. And our lives slip away, moment by moment, lost in that terrible in-between."
