Re: Skyfall - Grading & Discussion
Not much right with them winning, either.
Man I REMEMBER how many great films should have been in competition in place of CHARIOTS ... Just in terms of non-nominated films, TAPS, TRUE CONFESSIONS and RAGTIME blew me away (and the latter two STILL impress), while I actually fell asleep on CHARIOTS (had already bought the soundtrack, so it was all downhill from there.) ABSENCE OF MALICE, while nominated for director and most of the cast, also didn't get a bestpic nod.
The Academy has made some interesting choices over the years.
On the continent of wild endeavour in the mountains of solace and solitude there stood the citadel of the time lords, the oldest and most mighty race in the universe looking down on the galaxies below sworn never to interfere only to watch.
