    There you go

    EDIT: Didn`t even know Tarantino was the writer behind True Romance.

    Christian Slater....oh how the mighty have fallen.

    I saw a movie with him that hit the net several months back and it was the worst movie I've ever seen. I can't remember the title, but seriously, I'd rather staple a testicle to each thigh and be forced to run a 10k.

    The list of amazingly good movies he's made is unsurpassable:

    Shutter Island
    The Departed
    The Aviator
    Gangs of New York
    Casino
    Cape Fear
    Goodfellas
    Raging Bull
    Taxi Driver

    Cinematic royalty. His movies are the pinnacle of achievement in film.

    Edit: Forgot The Color of Money

    After Hours is a real gem too. A dark comedy from the 80's (I think) that's really worth a watch.

    There you go Sarcasm

    EDIT: Didn`t even know Tarantino was the writer behind True Romance.

    And Natural Born Killers - which would have been amazing had he directed it, but Don Murphy literally stole that script from him, took it to Stone and they made it.

    Tarantino was so pissed off that when he finished Pulp Fiction, they asked him if he had a preference on when it came out - and he said "the same weekend as Natural Born Killer so I can blow it out of the water." And he did. Which is not bad for someone who has a ridiculously high IQ, but couldn't read properly or even write properly at the time.

    Haha. I think he plays on a tv show that is mildly successful isn't it?

    Oscar-winner Cuba Gooding Jr. will be coming to Ottawa at the end of the month to film a cop action drama.

    Gooding Jr. is among the Hollywood stars appearing in Sacrifice, a $6.8-million feature film by Ottawa-based Zed Productions that begins shooting around town on March 28. Also expected is Christian Slater, who appeared in the cult film Heathers as well as Pump Up The Volume.

    That movie I mentioned that was god-awful also starred Cuba Gooding Jr.

    Are they teaming up to win a bunch of razzies or something? This Sacrifice will be a sweeping epic no doubt.

    Back to the subject of the poll-
    I think my sister described Avatar best when she said it's like Fern Gully on crack. Sure, the visuals were stunning and incredible- but the storyline was just awful. The acting was fairly terrible, with the only saving grace being Sigourney Weaver the legend.

    I absolutely hated the fact that it was trumpeted as this massive masterpiece of a movie, and consequentially had a bunch of bandwagon jumpers parading it as the best movie of all time.

    I literally jumped out of my chair when the Hurt Locker won- because it truly deserved it. It was a tremendously well made movie and was enjoyable from start to finish.

    This one's obviously a no-brainer for me.

    Also- Basterds should have given more applause- but as many people alluded to here- just the wrong time to have that movie. Really glad that Christoph Walz won best supporting though, he was REMARKABLE in that movie.

    I shat my 'loons when Hurt Locker won the Best Editing award. The winner of that award wins BP 99.9% of the time.
