Remember when Shakespeare in Love won over Saving Private Ryan? Yeah, it's like that again...

 

I'm still upset about The English Patient beating Fargo. WTF?

Whether or not King's Speech deserved Best Picture, Colin Firth's performance was mindbogglingly good and easily deserving of Best Male Actor.

 

Good job Colin Firth, you're doing a great at copying word-for-word George VI's actual speech, of which you have the actual audio recording for.

 

Straight-up historical films ruin cinema for exactly this reason: nothing original in character portrayal. It's funny, because The Social Network is exactly how one does a historical (yeah yeah, recent history) film. Eisenberg and Garfield had a book and Aaron Sorkin to go off of, and the linchpin duo defined the film. Colin Firth had extensive writings about the behavior of George VI, not to mention recorded audio of him. BRB, not giving a shit about actors who can follow a mold.

Don't claim that Inception is unoriginal or McNinja will give you an infraction!

 

If you had said what Rawr here did, I wouldn't have given you one.

 

 

 

The Scrooge book came out in 2002. Nolan pitched Inception to Warner Bros. In 2001, but came out feeling like he needed to make more "big" films to get the necessary experience. After the Dark Knight, he felt he was sufficiently skilled and Inception was made.

Thanks, that's... descriptive.

Yes, but Nolan himself said that it was made out to be a heist film in the beginning, but he changed it into this...
