I urge voters to consider only one thing: voting for The Mummy in Best Visual Effects. The Matrix and Star Wars are probably the two heavy-hitters of the year but I feel that it's actually The Mummy that aged the best in that department. The CGI impresses but doesn't overstay its welcome, its ambitious enough but not too ambitious for its own good (unlike The Phantom Menace) and it has the most consistent effects of the nominees (putting aside bullet time, The Matrix has numerous CG-effects that aren't particularly great). Vote for it! Do not anger Imhotep

Well, I just saw South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut. I managed to tolerate about five seconds of the show one time, and that was the extent of my SP experience before this.
And... this was... funny... This is proof that size doesn't matter so much as how you use it, as the film drags a lot in the last third, but this was rather sweet for most of its runtime. At its best, the humor reminded me of the classic anime Ghost Stories, which likely owed a lot to Parker and Stone. The irreverence here came from the same, innocent place... until it lost the thread, anyway.
An aimless, but decent enough movie for most of its running time... in spite of Hilary Swank being some of the most godawful casting imaginable. But the last half hour of this is just ugly and exploitative, delivering horrible violence and almost framing it like Brandon deserved everything that happened to him. And then I learned after the fact that there was another victim that was cut out of the movie, and it just feels like this was wallowing in evil. I thought it was okay at first, but the more I look on this, the more sour it tastes.
