Random Cinematic Awards

Cinema Romantico's movie viewing for 2006 is almost complete but until it is The 2nd Annual Prigge's (in which we name the year's best movies and performances) cannot be unveiled. I know, I know, this depresses you. This creates a rather bulbous void in your life. After all, in a world that contains approximately 814,737 year-end movie award lists, The Prigge's are the only of those which can be considered definitive.

But worry not, dear and loyal readers, The Prigge's are almost here. Thus, in order to quench your ever-burgeoning thirst I present you with Cinema Romantico's 2nd Annual Random Cinematic Awards. Enjoy!!!

Best Use of Music in a Movie This Year: “We Belong” in Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby

Best Individual Line of the Year: “Marriage is an important part of getting ahead. It lets people know you're not a homo.” – Alec Baldwin, “The Departed” (I understand this line may seem a bit tasteless but, trust me, when you hear it in the movie and listen to the way Baldwin says it, you will ache from laughter.)

Most Underrated Movie of the Year: Marie Antoinette

Most Overrated Movie of the Year: Babel

Worst Movie of the Year: Click (as the Vince Vaughn of "Wedding Crashers" said - "I don't want to get into it because it's only gonna' make me mad")

Best Chicago Movie Revival of the Year: Raiders of the Lost Ark

Best Movie Rental Experience of the Year: Bon Voyage (an utterly fantastic French comedy/adventure set during WWII)


First Annual Honorary Rachel McAdams Award (for cinema’s most promising newcomer): Sacha Baron Cohen, “Talladega Nights” & “Borat”

First Annual Honorary Michael Bay Award (for person in cinema who most needs to go away and sell real estate): Brett Ratner, director of the train wreck that was “X-Men 3”

Movie Review Quote of the Year: “So, bad story: strike one. Unimpressive acting: strike two. Oh, and the gratuitous and disturbing scene with a naked Terry Bradshaw. Well, if that isn't strike three, what is?” – Rory L. Cline (movieidiot.blogspot.com) on “Failure to Launch”

I'd like to take this moment to thank the Academy of Prigge for this generous award. I'd like to thank myself for seeing all those movies and Hollywood I'd like to take this moment to ask you to please stop making movies like "Failure to Launch."
