cloudy with a chance of meatballs was a really bad movie imo

Oh you DID NOT just say that! *foams* Gragaghaguaukajajh


lol jk ;b I could see people not liking it because it’s a goofy story (if that's what you meant by bad movie). But just the cartoony-ness and humor were my tastes hands down. Like character animation was really really good in this film (mostly on Flint) because they used so much exaggeration (movement, faces, poses) to do things.

But yeah, I'm sad to see it not nominated :[ but the competition was tough this year and Kells getting a nom was a pleasant surprise! I bet they were so happy

Seen:
Coraline (deserves something)
Inglorious Basterds (deserves something)
District 9 (deserves something)
Transgarbage (deserves absolutely nothing)
Sherlock Holmes (if it was in a shittier year for movies it would maybe win something)
Harry Potter (LETS TALK ABOUT OUR FEELINGS AND FORGET THAT WE DO COOL MAGIC STUFF GOOD MOVIE GOOD JOB)
French Roast (it was premiered in ottowa in the international showcase. It deserves something.)
Wallace and Grommit (also ottowa. It was fun as hell. It's more likely to win.)
They all look like they're going to lose.

Should see:
Avatar
Imaginarium
Serious Man
Up
Princess and the frog
Fantastic Mr. Fox

Wow, Randy newman's up for 2 oscars in the song category.

yeah this forum colored my judgment of it a lot already.
I should download it but I was told that if I see it it should be in 3-d, because the only good part about it are the visuals, and 3-d makes it even better.

the 3d glasses make it look darker and more dull
and the 3d itself isnt even remotely interesting it doesnt add to the movie at all
i have yet to see a 3d movie that was worth seeing in 3d

I went to see Up in 3d and holy shit it actually looked fantastic and cool you could see the house floating around the place. The thing with avatar in 3d, well it simply wasnt meant to be seen in 3d I guess its an "animated movie" thing.

Just watched all the shorts. I liked them all except for Logorama. I hope "la dama y el muerte”-(The Lady and Death), wins the Oscar because it’s a great short with comedy and style and tells the whole story without words so the animation has to work harder to convince and it still made me laugh.

But if I predict it correctly, the Wallace and Gromit short will probably win since it was really well done too and more people are fans of them so they have that popular clout that will win them more votes just because of that.

And I agree Coraline was the first movie that made 3D worth watching. It allowed me to see the puppets and sets with depth and form the way the actual animator would have seen as he’s creating the scene. Little details you would have ignored in the plain film are noticed in 3d like the frays in the doll and hair too.

Holy shit the lady and the reaper short was GREAT
Character designs,humor,style and using a slightly controversial theme as the center of the storytelling while being hilarious
fuckin FLAWLESS I say

and it has the same song as the ending of dr strangelove wich I saw for the first time just a couple o days ago and made me love it even more.
