Also, just to give credit where credit is due, the actress playing Moaning Myrtle is Shirley Henderson.

 

That was my least favorite part of the film. I literally wanted to get up and leave the theater. And I like Shirley Henderson in other things, too.

Beyonce in Austin Powers in Goldmember.  I swear if she said "I'm Foxy Cleopatra" one more time, I was going to reach through the screen and strangle her.  Beyonce really isn't all that great.  She really isn't.  I don't understand the obsession with her. 
 


Whoops. I planned to put her in my Best Supporting Actress List for 2008 for Cadillacs Records.

Also, just to give credit where credit is due, the actress playing Moaning Myrtle is Shirley Henderson.

I saw the first one in the theater, and found it passable. I really didn't care for the second, which I also saw in the theater, so I didn't bother with the third when it came out. I saw it a bit later, and liked it much more, and I enjoyed the rest of them for the most part. I would still never list any of them among my favorites, but I certainly felt the first two were the weakest movies.

 

BTW, I hated Goldmember (I listed it among my picks for ten worst of the year), but I love the Lord of the Rings movies, and taken as one loooong movie, i consider it the best of the decade.

 

Re: Harry Potter.  I just got tired of how each subsequent Harry Potter got more convoluted and more depressing.  I've only read the first two books and I don't think I've seen the films past the fourth one (Goblet of Fire?).  To quote Austin Powers: "It's not my bag, baby." 

 

 

Goldmember is my least favorite of the Austin Powers trilogy.  The second one is actually my favorite.  However, I did like Fat Bastard as the sumo wrestler and I liked that Fred Savage was in it.  I remember seeing this movie in like the second run theater for like $3 back in the summer of '02.  I cannot stand Beyonce though.  I couldn't stand her in this movie and I can't stand her now. 

 

It had its moments.

And speaking of My Big Fat Greek Wedding I watched it again a few months ago and Michael Constantine remained my number one choice for best supporting actor.  And that was really put to the test by watching the sequel right afterward which was quite dreadful.  The performances in the sequel were stretched thin too which takes the lustre off of the first one.  I found that as well when I watched the three Bridget Jones's films one after the other.   Zellweger was my Best Actress choice for the first film but I thought she AND the subsequent films were pretty bad.  It just shows how difficult it is to come up with a good film.  You can come to the table with the same ingredients but that doesn't necessarily mean it will work nearly as well.


I agree about the My Big Fat Greek Wedding films. The first one just felt natural and down to earth, and the sequel just felt like a loud, processed sitcom that was completely over the top. As for Bridget Jones, I did like those sequels a lot more than you did, and really truly enjoyed the third film, but maybe that's because I have a real soft spot for British-based comedies. The second was a mixed bag but had its moments.

-------Actually, I consider In America a 2003 film and my 2003 winner. 

 

 

 

I take it that this is because you like to compare your choices to that of films nominated for an Oscar.  But any film not nominated for an Oscar you go by the original release date and not necessarily when it was released in North America.  So two sets of rules.

For the purposes of this thread I decided that we should just go by the film's original release date no matter which country that was in.  For the Oscars are nothing more than a Los Angeles Film Festival.  Its qualifications are determined by the release date in that city alone.

It's funny that you bring this up now, because earlier I was thinking that while I haven't seen My Big Fat Greek Wedding, I'm more than aware of the movie (how could one not be with the press that it's received over the years), and didn't need a description of the what the movie was about when the "not seen" lists came around.

And speaking of My Big Fat Greek Wedding I watched it again a few months ago and Michael Constantine remained my number one choice for best supporting actor.  And that was really put to the test by watching the sequel right afterward which was quite dreadful.  The performances in the sequel were stretched thin too which takes the lustre off of the first one.  I found that as well when I watched the three Bridget Jones's films one after the other.   Zellweger was my Best Actress choice for the first film but I thought she AND the subsequent films were pretty bad.  It just shows how difficult it is to come up with a good film.  You can come to the table with the same ingredients but that doesn't necessarily mean it will work nearly as well.

I'm going to have a massive 'still to see' list for 2002.  If anyone wishes to comment on those films just to let you know, I do know the plots already.  In fact I have copies of most of the films but just have not gotten around to watching them yet.  But if you would like to mention why you picked the performers you listed on those films that would be most welcome!
