  • I thought Assasination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford should have been nominated and won best score. It had, next to TTWB, the best score of the year.

    • Outside of anything made by John Williams, TWBB had the best score I've ever heard.

          That it was a part of some Radiohead songs... Or something of that sort.

            Unfortunately, Greenwood will not win an Academy Award for best original score (though he deserves something). He was judged ineligible for nomination because the "There Will Be Blood" soundtrack contains too much pre-existing music. It's the Academy's loss, I think. Yet, I suspect we will hear more from Greenwood - who is more easily understood as a new music composer who crossed over into rock - in the future.

              • That sucks. I still have to see the movie and then check out the score.

                • Greenwood is an unbelievable musician, great great guitarist. Without him, Thom Yorke and Radiohead wouldn't be as successful as they are.

                  • So who are everyone's biggest Oscar Snubs of all-time?

                    Best Picture: Citizen Kane
                    It lost to How Green Was Your Valley. That sounds like a very poorly made porn.

                    Best Actor: Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca
                    This always boggled my mind how he lost.

                    Best Actress: Jodie Foster in Taxi Driver
                    Okay, it was for actress in a supporting role, but I still can't believe she didn't win.

                    Best Director: Martin Scorsese...
                    Which time?

                    • Biggest Snub was Raging Bull losing to Ordinary people. I would also say Pulp Fiction's loss to Forrest Gump and Stanley Kubrick getting screwed out of an Oscar countless times. Kubrick should have about 5 Best Director and Picture Awards. Including The Departed Scorsese should have 4 Best Directors (Raging Bull, Taxi Driver, Goodfellas). Oh and DDL losing to Denzel for Best Actor. Bill The Butcher was awesome.

                        I actually disagree about Pulp Fiction. I love the film, but for the best picture Oscar I'd give it to Forest Gump, then to Shawshank Redemption, and then to Pulp Fiction.

                        And I feel Kubrick is overrated as a director a tad much. He is very good, but he gets a bit overrated with his cult status. I will say that he is an amazing cinematographer.

                        • You bastard. Kubrick will forever be known as the greatest filmaker to ever walk the earth. I have yet to see I movie of his I don't like and there are quite a few I love.

                              The Shawshank Redemption > Pulp Fiction > Forrest Gump.

                              But you have the right idea about Kubrick. Very well said.

                                While I dont think its in the upper class of films from 07, I thought it was very well done. I think it was a solid 4-star movie, and had it as my #9 movie of 07.
