Yeah, this was bugging me throughout most of the movie, actually. The really sappy "tearjerker"-moments also felt trite and forced, so I'll file the movie under "overrated oscar-baiting".

EW, something must have gone wrong. Your link and video player both need fixing.

And the oscars need less "fixing"

Well, Mickey Rourke didn't get the Oscar he deserved, but at least Slumdog Millionaire won eight, and Benjamin Button only got 3.

Went fine by me. IMO, Wall-E deserved Sound Editing and I'd like to have seen Mickey Rourke win, but they were cool.

Agreed. Mickey Rourke was the only real disappointment for me. I really liked Benjamin Button, and it would have been nice to see it win a few more, but I can understand the Academy's decisions.

I'm boycotting Slumdog for eternity now. There is no excuse for it winning the Best Song category. Both of its entries sounded like the same generic Bollywood crap that's in every Indian movie. Hell, they could have put Benny Lava in it and no one would have noticed. Peter Gabriel's song from WALL-E should have won, along with Best Soundtrack as well. And it was an utter travesty that WALL-E didn't win any of the Sound awards either, since most of the movie was just that: sound.

Basically, **** Slumdog.




have a suggestion for the lf poll? pm me

That WALL-E song was not only forgettable, but sounded like the same generic Black Christian crap to me, tbh. I also liked Slumdog's music over WALL-E's. I'll agree that the Sound Editing award should have gone to WALL-E though. Ben Burtt definitely deserved it.

Edit: I also don't see how that Wall-E song got nominated over Bruce Springsteen's The Wrestler. That was such a beautiful song.

Ohoho? So says the man boycotting a globally-acclaimed, multiple Oscar award-winning movie because it won an Academy-chosen award over another movie.

Well, for Slumdog there was that brown guy singing it and all those other brown dancers and singers and I was all because I've seen it all before here.

The Academy has made more than its fair share of mistakes in the past.

Errr... there was music in WALL-E? Oh... you mean that soft **** during the credits during the incredibly cheesy We-are-the-World slide show? Yeah, I don't even recall.
