A comic book geek film fan! Same here!
"Blade" reminded me that the genre COULD be done brilliantly (I had forgotten after that travesty known as "Batman & Robin."). Loved "Spiderman" and the "X-Men" films, and looking forward to more.
Now, onto the critically-pleasing films.
Loved "Lost in Translation," and am hoping that Bill Murray gets the Best Actor nod. This is "Return of the King"'s year, as is for director Peter Jackson. Actually, it's pretty hard to pick winners, since there were a LOT of strong contenders. I regret the stuff that's happened to me in my life that kept me from seeing "Mystic River." I enjoy Clint Eastwood, Tim Robbins, and Sean Penn, and feel cheated again for the abuse.
Ah, but "Shrek II." Now THAT'S a keeper!
Oh, by the way, Lupin, I am so looking forward to Disney doing Studio Gibli's "Castle of Cagliostro" right. Who cares if it's over 15 years old. It's STILL a damn fine movie!
This is my Super Bowl. While I can't stay up for the whole awards, I AM planning to go to sleep to it and absorb the results by osmosis!
Peace and love, and GO PETER JACKSON!
