million dollar larceny
apparently, my previous entry failed to persuade the academy to offer scorsese the oscar he deserves. at least clint gets another (!) oscar for making a karate kid knockoff.
i officially loathe "million dollar baby". the cheap sentiment. the tired storyline. the senseless, meaningless final act. the academy's a bunch of suckers for honoring this piece o' shit. okay, i may be overly harsh here; if it weren't up for an oscar, if it didn't WIN the goddamn oscar, i might've cut it more slack. but it's fucking bullshit.
i fucking loved "the aviator". i know not everyone did, but you compare its artistic/technical/filmmaking ambitiousness and achievement to that of "million dollar brat", and it's laughable.
but i'm not laughing. because "girlfight" -- er, i mean "million dollar shitty" took the prize. and my blood is full of venom this mourning.
(and the show itself sucked -- may as well have been the blockbuster awards.)
