Best Spaceship Flight Scene: the X-wing fight at the end of Episode IV StarWars.  Okay maybe I am old school, but it is truly great.  If you watch the re-re-cgi-ed version, it is still pretty cool.   Of course, any of the big Babylon 5 battles run a pretty close second.

Biggest Mindf***: Ending of Se7en

Best "Oh My God, CGI can do that?!":  Did you see the Lord of the Rings?

Things we totally agree upon
Best Line Delivered Immediately Prior to a Villian's Death: "This is where you fall down."  Johnny Cage, Mortal Kombat.  It may not be the best line, but it has style.

Coolest Animated Villian: Maleficient, from Sleeping Beauty (yes, I know it's Disney.  Shut up; she kicked ass.)

Most Heartwrenching Moment (in a fantasy/ science fiction film): When Navarre and Isobol almost touch at dawn in LadyHawke    With the qualifier it is hands down true, without the qualifier it could be true.

Coolest Baby: JackJack from The Incredibles   No argument there. Of course, not a lot of competition.

I will qualify.
Best "Oh My God, CGI can do that?!" (total CGI): Advent Children

Best Death of a Nameless Minion: In Lord of the Rings: Two Towers, when the Ents are marching on Isengard.  They break the dam, water comes rushing in, and an Ent casually tosses an orc he's holding into the oncoming wall of water.

Best Gamer Related High Schoool Movie: Sky High

Best literal application of the term Ice Queen. Sky High - The Girl, with ice powers, that keeps freezing every guy who makes a pass at her.

I have to say, when i first watched Final Fantasy: The spirits within I was so fricken amazed by the graphics (of course i nearly wet myself when i saw the first cut scene in Final Fantasy VII)

Best portrayal of Warewolves and Vampires: Underworld, no questions asked. I still haven't seen evolution, is it any good?

Best one-liner: Routy Roddy Piper in "They Live" -- "I came here to do two things, chew bubblegum and kick some ass and it looks like i'm all out of bubble gum." *cocks shotgun*

Cutest movie protagonist: Gizmo from Gremlins.

Biggest mindf***: Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind or The Usual Suspects (they're a different kind of mindf***)

Best CGI for it's time: TRON!!

Best portrayal of Werewolves: American Werewolf in London, with Howling I (and only number 1, we do not acknowledge the other ones existing) coming in a close second.

Best Action Movie With But A Symbolic Plot - Mean Guns (So here you are... now kill each other.)

Best wrongly interpreted name of a Film - The Long Kiss Goodnight (Was supposed to be a romantic movie, went there on duty as high school kids to learn proper English. We learned that to kiss somebody goodnight means to kill him.)

The Best Prison Movie Ever - Shawshank Redemption (Actually an excellent movie by many other accounts!)

Best Movie That Made The Theatre All Quiet - American Beauty

Best Mass-Murderer Investigator Type - Morgan Freeman

The Nicest Assassin For Hire - Leon

Best Announcement That The Movie Is Not Over Yet: Aliens, when the Alien Queen puts her rather sharp tail through Bishop, and then rips him in half. Ouch.

Best Classic Seafaring Movie in the last 30 years:
Master and Commander

Best Pirate Movie in the last 30 years
Pirates of the Carribean, though something can be said for Cutthroat Island (which is certainly better than Pirates II and III).

Best Pirate Movie older than 30 years: Captain Blood

Best Classic Seafaring movie older than 30 years ago: Mutiny on the Bounty
