Why don't they just rename the Academy Award "Karl"?

It's like the Nobel Peace Prize. That one no longer has anything to do with Peace. Now, it's about "social justice". And the Award for Best Picture is no longer about good, crowd pleasing movies destined to be seen as classics. Now, it's about "Social Justice".

I detect a theme. I second the notion that the award be renamed the "Karl".

I heard that the movie about the two cowpokes is doing so well they've already planned the sequel:

Backdoor Mounting II: Homo on the Range

The Globes always take this road to controversy. They must think it pumps up their agenda. And it will no doubt win.

I'm asking everyone here to pray that Jeff Daniels, Laura Linney and the movie THE SQUID AND THE WHALE walks away with everything. I have a very personal interest in this...I haven't seen it yet because it hasn't played near where I live...has anyone seen it? Anyway, it's about how bad divorce is on the kids....ok...it would sound stupid to make this a prayer thread about a movie, but if you could find it in yourselves to help me out...PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!!!

Looks like this movie will sweep the Oscars this year. Guess the academy will want to thumb its nose at fly over country, and they wonder why box office receipts are down over all.

Or in this case, it may be more appropriate to name it the "Hot Karl".

IMHO Bareback Mountain looks like a romantic comedy. Paraphrasing the Pogue Colonel charactor in Full Metal Jacket "Inside every movie there is a comedy trying to get out."

Saw "The Squid and the Whale." It is very self-consciously "arty" although it has some outstanding performances. A word of warning: the youngest son is a compulsive masturbator in the film. I wouldn't recommend it for young children.

I know! It's just AMAZING! The breathtaking pig-headedness of the Left never ceases to amaze. This movie will do CRAP at the box office. There is no way possible that Americans are going to flock to see this movie; it will languish.

King Kong, on the other hand, will probably KICK BUTT and folks may very well go see it two and three times. Guys like Peter Jackson -- a man who loves making movies for the sheer joy of making them, a man who doesn't take himself or his movies too seriously -- are what keep box office receipts viable and the film industry in business. Wankers like Spielberg and the folks behind this turkey, on the other hand, take themselves and their movies WAY too seriously; it permeates their films and there is no joy in them at all.

The Oscars and the Golden Globes owe there existence to the Jacksons of the world, and they insist on rewarding the jackasses behind the likes of a movie about fantasy fag cowboys. That's RICH!

I think "those Hobbit movies" exhibited an incredible gutsiness in that Jackson made all three of them at once, which was a huge, enourmous risk on his part. I think "those Hobbit movies" had an overwhelming sense of not taking themselves too seriously, and it was refreshing compared to movies like "Saving Private Ryan" and even "E.T." Most of all, I know "those Hobbit movies" exhibited pure joy and fun in the art of making movies. You may think "they sucked," but I think you're looking at it from a pretty shallow perspective.

From your tag line:

Smartest words ever written by a Communist: "Show me the way to the next Whiskey Bar"

Wiskey Bar (Alabama song)

The Doors Alabama Song (Whiskey Bar) Lyrics

Well, show me the way
To the next whiskey bar
Oh, don't ask why
Oh, don't ask why
Show me the way
To the next whiskey bar
Oh, don't ask why
Oh, don't ask why
For if we don't find
The next whiskey bar
I tell you we must die
I tell you we must die
I tell you, I tell you
I tell you we must die
Oh, moon of Alabama
We now must say goodbye
We've lost our good old mama
And must have whiskey, oh, you now why
Oh, moon of Alabama
We now must say goodbye
We've lost our good old mama
And must have whiskey, oh, you now why
Well, show me the way
To the next little girl
Oh, don't ask why
Oh, don't ask why
Show me the way
To the next little girl
Oh, don't ask why
Oh, don't ask why
For if we don't find
The next little girl
I tell you we must die
I tell you we must die
I tell you, I tell you
I tell you we must die
Oh, moon of Alabama
We now must say goodbye
We've lost our good old mama
And must have whiskey, oh, you now why

The song was actually written by Bertolt Brecht, the Communist German playwright. You may also know his "Mackie der Messer" (aka Mack the Knife).

Interesting. NPR (classical music serves as filler between Rush and Savage during automobile trips) touted the song Mack the Knife during a name that tune show.

This movie is also nominated for Original Song.

OK, can anyone think up some really good lyrics?

Sorry, I'm not clever enough. Besides "Homo on the Range," of course."
