    Likewise. Until it has a release[does it?], it will remain in my electro-archives.
    I'm proud to'v contributed much to King_uv_Hell's draft list[as far as recommendations go], but I'm picking out the few titles I have not seen since we both agree we dig on much of the same. That all stops when it comes to Cat III films, heh. My love for them is immense.

    • Bigfoot: The Lost Coast Tapes - 3/5, It could have been better, but I liked it. Nice take on Bigfoot legends, and one scene took me completely by suprise.

        I'd say the exact same thing if he were alive. He deserved the recognition he got, and so do most of the main actors in TDRK. I just think Ledger was better. I don't disagree with you that other people took his death into account though.

          Sounds really interesting, anyone know if its youtube video is any good? Just wondering if its cut or anything? Think I'll give it a download.

            Like I've said before; it just gets better after every veiwing. I definitely think this movie deserves an award. Bale, Hathaway, Hardy, Caine, Gordon-Levitt...they all did a superb job. Just as good as Ledger, and he was best supporting actor. I wonder sometimes if it was only because he died, so if they don't give up an award to ONE of these actors I'm going to stay strong with my theory.
            Not this shit again. Ledger's performance is iconic. Death or no death, the guy deserved every bit of that award. It's going to be talked about 50 years from now. Nobody in TDKR left that kind of an impression. Hatheway was about the best of the bunch, but Oscar worthy? No.

            Ledger's perfomance wasn't only perfect, it was unique. Much like Hannibal Lector, there is no other villain like him. Bane was cool and all, but he's a pretty shallow character. He's a one note brute. There's nothing too special about him, other than his mask and voice, which is very debatable on whether or not they were good qualities.

            The rest were okay, but pretty standard. I actually thought the returning cast phoned it in for the most part.

            • Saying Ledger only won an oscar because he died is retarded, same as saying the actors in TDKR "phoned" it in.

              • Wrong Turn 4
                A group of young people are heading out to a trip with snowmobiles, but is forced to seek shelter in a nearby abandoned building. They soon find out that this place is filled with demented maniacs, who seek and try to kill the intruders.
                I 've heard many bad things about it, plotholes, ridiculous dialogues and retarded behaviour within a group under stress. Too bad that all of this is true. This film has the most retarded dialogues and bad decisions the genre has to offer as of late. I facepalmed so hard myself multiple times during watching, but after a while you are getting used to it. Watching this with a bunch of drunken buddies is definitely the way to go with it. More problematic were the plotholes, [SPOILER]for instance the snowmobiles, which are destroyed by the cannibals, but later on used by them for the hunt.[/SPOILER]But not everything is shitty, the gore and kills were pretty decent, the idea of [SPOILER]eating a victim alive and simultaneously barbecueing him[/SPOILER] is just brilliantly sadistic. Good and depraved idea of the producers.
                I wouldn't call it a memorable masterpiece, but if you are a fan of the franchise, this one is not to be missed.

                6/10

                But his demise added immensly to the decision of the Academy to award him with that, I have no doubt regarding that. Under this cirumstances, any other actor but him getting the statue would have been odd.
                Acting-wise, he earned it nonetheless with the greatest of ease.

                    I don't get the splooging over Gordon Levitt's performance. He wasn't bad by any means, just very ho-hum. Still; even if he gave a great performance I don't think it would change my mind in not wanting his character in the film at all.

                        You both need to go back and read what I said; because that's not what was said.

                        I'm saying we'll never fully know if Ledger would've WON that Oscar if he were alive. He gave a huge performance, and quite possibly the best EVER as a villain...but you can't sit there and tell me that him dying had NO role in him winning the Oscar. There's no doubt he would've been nominated, but I question all the time whether or not he would have won if he were still alive.

                        • Skyfall - 4.5/5

                          No hype, just a damn good Bond movie. Definitely one of the best.

                            That's something we'll never know. I think the academy awards suck dick so it really didn't matter to me if he won or not.

                              I'll agree to some extent. I honestly don't think he would've won the award, if he was still alive. However, that doesn't mean he wasn't deserving. I only say this, because the rest of the film was completely ignored by the academy. They didn't give a shit, even though the rest of the film was just as equally awards worthy.

                              His death had something to do with it all, but it didn't. Ya know what I mean?

                                I do. I don't think there would have been such a push for him to be nominated/win if he didn't pass on.

                                He definitely deserved to win but the academy didn't give two shits about TDK other than Ledger's performance. It deserved to be nominated for Best Picture at least but oh well.
