:: Nominations for Best Motion Picture ::

I personally thought Hero or Kung Fu Hustle would be great for it.

Now while people may be able to understand Hero, they may be a little confused for Kung Fu Hustle. Let me explain.

Kung Fu Hustle is a serious action movie. There are tragic scenes, like when the three matrial arts masters are slain by the assassins. Tragedy and heroic determination are to be found aplenty, and the hero of the series is completely unaware of the role he eventually plays.

...That said, this movie keeps itself light and funny as well. With dancing mobsters, snakes and knives attacking our hero, and our hero's blissful immunity to death when compounded with his ability to almost instantly recover from any wound (a parody of the typical anime hero), we get a well put together, well thought out movie that even manages to be better than Steven Chow's other great Kung Fu Comedy, Shaolin Soccer.
War.

I like Kung Fu Hustle, and I saw some parallels between that and The Matrix. Even though KFH had the same very basis devices, it did a much better job with those then The Matrix did. So yeah.

Anyway, a heads up with the 2005 poll. I narrowed it down to five films and wanted to see what you guys thought of it as well.

  • Batman Begins
  • The Constant Gardener*
  • Hero
  • Ray*
  • Sin City
  • Spider-Man 2


The stars (*) mean that those two movies (Constant Gardener and Ray) have already clinched their spots in the nominations so too say and I just need two more films for the other two spots. So, if anybody has any input I'd appreciate it. Also, if and when I get the four films to be nominated for the 2005 Best Motion Picture award, I'll put up the poll to get the voting in later on.

Also as long as I'm here, I guess we can start putting up nominees for the 2007 Best Motion Picture award. I know, it may seem... annoying and trival but bare with me here.

I'll nominate the following; Children of Men, The Departed, and Little Miss Sunshine. Anybody else got any nominees they want to throw down as well?

EDIT: Yeah Hanyou, Casino Royale is all good to be nominated for 2007.
Peace.

I'm with Batman Begins.

Casino Royale is fair game for the 2007 awards, right?

Hmm... Indeed... Definitely not Batman Begins. That was all right, but even Spider-Man 2 was better. Either Hero or Sin City. Sin City was a masterful rendition of Frank Miller's twisted city, and Hero was an excellently well done and portrayed tale of tragic heroism. Just throwing my two bits in.
