A great feel bad film.

Check out this synopsis by IMDB. Here is a link to the plot summary:

»www.imdb.com/title/tt0887912/plotsummary

Sounds like the kind of movie that you would not even want to watch once. Sounds rather depressing from the synopsis.

How often do cartoons actually win against real films?

Not prosecuting the Black Panthers for voter intimidation gives the go-ahead for unions to do the same.

Avatar winning an Oscar would bring down the entire establishment - unless it was an Oscar for best 3D of the month or something.

Sci-fi films rarely win the Best Picture award.

Donno. Ask the makers of Titanic or Lord of the Rings.

Of course because you have a short film in your closet that will out sell Avatar at boxoffice coming out this summer.

Avatar- $749,085,000

Politicians and diapers have one thing in common. They should both be changed regularly, and for the same reason.

Sure it earned a lot of money, that doesn't make it a great movie. Perhaps I am in the minority of those who like a good and at least somewhat original story?

If only Avatar were up against a REAL film in HL.

What, a coral reef-of-colors above water wasn't original??

The underlying theme(s) of every movie is the same.

Love
Money
Greed
Good guy / bad guy

And there may be one or 2 more "themes", but they are all the same. The only difference is how they get there and what they show you to influence your feeling of that theme(s).

Saying it is not original material can be extended to virtually everything including games and music.

Avatar did what Movies are supposed to do, it entertained a whole lot of people. people goto films to be taken away to another world for a few hours.

Hurt Locker well it could have been done on the History Channel.

BTW, WALL-E should have won last year's best picture but was not even nominated even though it was far better then anything that was up to bat.

UP was Snubbed in the 2010 Oscars, i doubt anyone could claim HL was better then UP.
