Oscars and Razzies

Well, it seems that I must be the only person in the world who thought The Departed was shit.

You know, I usually refrain from any kind of Oscars discussion, because, really, I don't care in any real way. But usually, I've seen at least half the films up for nomination, and this year, I've seen two, the first being Martin Scorcese's bland and often idiotic excuse for a thriller with a rat, and the second being Borat, which I was pretty underwhelmed by. But this year, American film has been pretty damn uninviting and, outside The Last King in Scotland, which stars Forest Whitaker, who I've always liked and who I hear is pretty good in this film, I've no desire to go and see the the films up for nomination. Actually, no, I'll go and see Pan's Labyrinth as well.

On the other hand, the Razzies were announced as well, and it's good to see that Uwe Boll is finally getting the recognition he deserves.
