Movie Meme / Favorite Action Movie
[The stunts] were all pretty grueling, but I think the Madagascar sequence at the beginning, because of all the running involved. I picked up injuries, strained muscles. I wouldn’t classify myself as a professional athlete in any way, but I understand now a little bit more about how professional athletes are constantly working through pain. And painkillers go a long way.
Movie Meme / Most beautiful cinematography
Marie Antoinette (Lance Acord)
From a visual point of view, Marie Antoinette is stunning. The cinematography is a perfect balance of unconventionally framed and handheld shots with exquisitely balanced static shots that favourably compare to Stanley Kubrick’s Barry Lyndon. This cinematography articulates both the formalities of the French aristocracy, the tranquil beauty of the Versailles setting and the private emotional upheavals suffered by Marie at key points in the film

The Hunger Games
And so it was decreed that each year, the various districts of Panem would offer up in tribute, one young man and woman to fight to the death in a pageant of honor, courage and sacrifice.
Movie Meme / Most compelling character
Nina Sayers (Black Swan)
I felt it. Perfect. I was perfect.
Movie Meme / Movie with the best soundtrack
Tron: Legacy (Daft Punk)
You never know whether something will be good, but the interesting thing for us was that Joe was concurrently working on this film with Steven Lisberger, the director from the first one, for which we have great admiration and respect as a human being and the legacy of that film. Having Jeff Bridges on board helped too.

How desperate are you, that you call on such lost creatures to defend you?
Movie Meme / A movie that you wish more people would’ve seen
Our bodies are prisons for our souls. Our skin and blood, the iron bars of confinement. But fear not. All flesh decays. Death turns all to ash. And thus, death frees every soul.
Movie Meme / A movie you’ve seen countless times
The Devil Wears Prada
'This… stuff'? Oh. Okay. I see. You think this has nothing to do with you. You go to your closet and you select… I don't know… that lumpy blue sweater, for instance because you're trying to tell the world that you take yourself too seriously to care about what you put on your back. But what you don't know is that that sweater is not just blue, it's not turquoise. It's not lapis. It's actually cerulean. And you're also blithely unaware of the fact that in 2002, Oscar de la Renta did a collection of cerulean gowns. And then I think it was Yves Saint Laurent… wasn't it who showed cerulean military jackets? I think we need a jacket here. And then cerulean quickly showed up in the collections of eight different designers. And then it, uh, filtered down through the department stores and then trickled on down into some tragic Casual Corner where you, no doubt, fished it out of some clearance bin. However, that blue represents millions of dollars and countless jobs and it's sort of comical how you think that you've made a choice that exempts you from the fashion industry when, in fact, you're wearing the sweater that was selected for you by the people in this room from a pile of stuff.
