I must disagree.

Best Award Acceptance Speech: Jim Carrey, I think at the Academy Awards (He talked to the audience with his mind for five minutes and then fell off the stage.)

I think I saw a bit of that. But I liked Gollum's Acceptance speach. It should have gone to Andy Sirkus but that Gollum he took it and cursed at Peter Jackson! I SO LOVE Gollum now.

I disagree! The Graduate is a good romantic film (one of the few I will admit) if only for the Simon & Garfunkel soundtrack.

Most unlikely line-up: Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman in Rainman.

Best acceptance speech: Spike Milligan, when he called Prince Charles a grovelling b*stard.

Best period film: The Elephant Man, filmed in crackly black and white to give it that 1920s feel.

Best horror film: Silence of the Lambs, the only film I've seen which actually looks how I had imagined it should from reading the book.

Most tense and distressed actor: Harrison Ford in just about anything.

Most Horror movies are not horror. They are jumpy. thats it. 'IT' was NOT scary. I like the ones where you have to stop it in the middle of the movie for a few hours of break. Even tho it is daytime. Those are scary. I like the ones that play on the psycological parts of human life. the ones about an insomniac or a person with OCD. And the things that COULD happen in real life. Find me a good horror movie I call you a friend for life.

IT wasn't scary all that scary, but it was a darn good movie. Well, the ending was disappointing, but it was still good despite that! Besides, IT is listed under the horror genre, so that's where I put it.

Evil clowns rule!

Best obscure movie that's only funny once: Rosencratz and Gildenstern are dead.

Worst movie ever: Pee Wee's big adventure.

Best movie to bludgeon someone to death with: Cool as Ice

How exactly does Bringing down the house beat out Bruce Almighty, or for that matter, Monty Python and the Holy Grail?

Best Fight Sequence:  The Diva Dance/Leeloo Kicking All and Major Ass from The Fifth Element  Honorable mention to Johnny Cage vs Goro in Mortal Kombat and Liu Kang vs Shang Tsung from the same movie.

Best Horror Actor:  Vincent Price.  Oh my GOD, that man could be scary.

Best Suspense Movie:  Signs and Sixth Sense are tied for it.

Coolest Actor:  Harrison Ford.  Between Indiana Jones and Han Solo, he's got it.  Actually, there's a tie, because Sean Connery is a d**n cool man himself.

Biggest Letdown:  The Dungeons and Dragons movie.  WHAT WAS THAT?

Most Recognizable Line:  Again, a tie.  "Hello.  My name is Inigo Montoya.  You killed my father; prepare to die."  And "Luke, I am your father."

Most Unexpected Scene:  The swordfight in Die Another Day.

Biggest Understatement Ever Made:  "Oh my God." - Rick O'Connel, The Mummy

The Most Overdone Series of Movies:  The Land Before Time.  Why oh why didn't they stop after the first one?  Followed closely by Power Rangers.  Only nobody cares about those.

Most Irritating Movie:  Mortal Kombat Annhilation.  They tried to cram too many characters in, and the really cool ones only had a few minutes of screentime.  But the annoying ones had way too much.  And they killed Johnny Cage within the first five minutes.  Bastards.

Biggest Badass:  Blade
Sometimes angels fall from grace, and sometimes heroes die.

Signs was a stupid movie. I thought it was going to be scary, but it really wasn't. Now Nightmare on Elm Street was scary. Of course, I was only 6 years old when I first saw it.

Best Movie Twist: The Others

Weirdest Movie: Barbarella

Worst Actress: Tara Reid

Most Over-rated Actress: Halle Berry (she isn't all that good in my opinion)

Best Actor Ever: Christopher Walken

Best Bad Guy Actor: John Travolta

Best Good Guy Actor: Bruce Willis

Best Action Movie: Die Hard 2

Best Tear Jerker: Tie between Titantic and Imitation of Life (I cried and I cried).
