Here are the first set of awards:
-Winner: Halloween II
I mean seriously, a movie that doesn't make hardly any sense, a movie that made me feel like I was on drugs the entire time instead of the actual actors. Flawed and overracted actors, save Brad Dourif who was this film's only saving grace, poor script, SHAKY camera work which makes Cloverfield and The Blair Witch Project look like they were recorded on a regular camera instead of a handheld. The movie has very dark lighting, and it was very hard seeing Michael curbstomping an innocent bystander. Rob Zombie has yet disappointed a big Halloween-Fan community, and I am in fact in that community. I just hope he isn't to return to make the next sequel in the saga. Good work, Rob!
Best Sci-Fi Film
-Winner: Star Trek
I wasn't really a big fan of the original television series, or the movies, but after see J.J. Abrams' edition of the saga, I might actually change my mind to go back and review the series.
Best Comedy Film
-Winner: The Hangover
If you may ask why I chose this movie for best Comedy, you simply have not seen this film. 'Nuff said.
Best Horror Film
This movie had everything; action, horror, comedy, zombies, Woody Harrelson, and Twinkies. What more could you really ask for?
Best Action Film
-Winner: District 9
I was quite skeptical about seeing this movie, but after I did so, I was completely blown away by how real it felt, and how much I grew with the characters, and how I hated, or liked, their actions. I often quoted this film as one of my favorites of the year, and it most definitely is. Combined with great acting, a good amount of brutal violence and gore, aliens, and mega-weapons, District 9 is definitely my action film of the year.
Best Writing-Original Screenplay
Avatar has clearly one of the best stories I have ever seen in a film. It helps you delve into it within the first 15 minutes, and the characters help succumb you as well. After I heard James Cameron worked on this story for almost 15 years, I was surprised, but you need that amount of time for a great story like this.
Best Writing-Adapted Screenplay
Watchmen had one, if not the closest adaptation from a novel to a film I have ever seen. Even though I did see the movie prior to reading the graphic novel, I was surprised to see how closely they resembled each other, and they were in the exact order that events played out in the novel. A great adaptation.
The 2nd set of awards tomorrow...
