    It's a completely different story with me. I had no expectations going into it and I was very impressed when it ended. I don't agree with you that there was no emotinal connection with the characters, I rarely find myself caring about most of the characters in the same way that I cared about the "alien" characters in District 9. It's quite an achievement for the creators to make the audience feel some kind of connection with a character that looks like a (very ugly) prawn

    "Acting by the main character was almost laughable" - ... I don't know... that's too harsh. I think Copley just went for it His character evolves (literally ) over the period of the movie. The audience evolves with him. For me it was like: "Oh, I don't care about this corporate schmuck" to "Oh God, Will he make it!?" All in all Copley did a good job.

    "Please tell me I am not alone in thinking that this movie was all hype and failed to deliver." - Oh, I'm sure you're not alone.

    So far it's been predictable. The crap shoot is coming once we get into the lesser known categories.
    You're waiting for a train, a train that will take you far away. You know where you hope this train will take you, but you can't be sure. But it doesn't matter - because we'll be together.

    I missed the Best Song category (STUPID!) so it's an 8-way tie now.

    That was a nice tribute to John Hughes, the man who defined a generation.

    The crap-shoot begins. How many of the shorts and documentaries did we all see?

    That was an awkward acceptance speech. I was wondering who the hell she was.
