Top fives in movies for this year. Agree with a lot, disagree with a lot. I'll list them later.

Really surprised No Country for Old Men didn't get a single one. I didn't care much for it, but it's one of the big films for the Oscars this year.

It was interesting, although I'm honestly shocked that Beowulf didn't get the award for best special effects.

Seriously, as good as transformers was, and as good animation it was, it couldn't touch Beowulf.

I dunno. A lot of Transformers took 38 hours per frame. And Transfromers was photorealistic, and Beowulf (while stylized) was not.

I have to say that the Dark Knight trailer, while awesome, may not have deserved the top spot, and only got it because it is brand new. We got Iron Man months ago, it gets third. Dark Knight days ago, it gets first.

For the dialouge thing: THIS IS SPARTA deserved higher. Everyone says it.

And for special effects, the amount of work they put into it outshines Beowulf. Beowulf had a deviation of rotoscoping, while Transformers worked from scratch to animate something to look completely real. Transformers put more work into it.

And honestly, I'm FAR more excited for the Dark Knight then I am Iron Man. Iron Man looks honestly amazing and I'm psyched to see it, but I love the Christopher Nolan Batman series because it's so real, and this looks to follow up even better then the last one.

Actually, Beowulf wasn't rotoscoped. It was fully animated with motion capture on the actors. They just animated it to look like them.

I agree with the fact that "This is SPARTA" Should be higher up. I hear it being used like every day and the movie has been out for a while.

Just because it's used everyday, doesn't mean it's better. Just means it has more context to be used. I honestly can't think of many situations where any of the others can be used in real life. But if anyone says that anything is anything, you can say this is sparta.

Very true but I still maintain that it should have been higher up.

I don't know... "I am McLovin" was one of the best lines ever and he says it so many times in the damn movie. As for the trailers, I think Ironman should have been higher up for the sole reason that they used the Black Sabbath song.

I am kinda sad that Sweeney Todd got nothing. They really should wait until the last week of December before putting this out so that the Christmas releases are included.

They can just include the Christmas releases for 2008. Like with the Oscars.

EDIT: Wait, what?
