SAAE15/16: Film

Thank you for joining us again for the next round of SAAE awards as part of the ongoing SAAE15/16 celebrations. Tonight’s category is film, and I once again thank the SGFCMoM for their tireless commitment to recognising the very best in art and entertainment making this event possible

 


 

The Bazinga Award

For most overrated TV show:

Stranger things (2016)

2016’s Stranger Things deserves this award for its staggering mediocrity proportional to the critical acclaim surrounding it. Also, for their endorsement of Antifa the cast members deserve only to be thrown out of a helicopter

 

 

The New Flesh Award

For best TV Show:

Samurai Jack (2001)

In celebration of the 5th season to be released in the coming month, Genndy Tartakovsky’s 2001 animated masterpiece is bestowed this award with great enthusiasm.

 

 

The Based Trigger Award

For best anime:

One Punch Man (2015)

Yes, it is indeed possible the japs can outdo hollywood on capeshit and One Punch Man is the proof. Possibly – quite likely in fact – the best anime ever made.

 

 

The Human Bean Award

For best character:

George Patton – from Patton (1970)

George C Scott’s portrayal of the eponymous General Patton exemplifies the spirit of war in such a way that has been unrivalled since.

 

The Brother Bear Award

For most underrated movie:

Waterloo (1970)

(Honorable mention: Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome)

Perhaps the most ambitious war film ever conceived. Supported by the exceptional performances from Christopher Plummer and Rod Steiger, and a general sense of scale unlike anything seen since, this movie truly epitomizes the term ‘warkino’.

 

 

The Howard Ashman Award

For best original song from a film

We Don’t Need Another Hero (1985) – Tina Turner

From “Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome”

Tina Turner’s memorable performance in the third Mad Max film is underscored by her valuable contribution to the soundtrack.

 

 

The Éponine Award

For most underappreciated genre

Warkino

It’s no accident that there hasn’t been a truly decent war film since the 80s. Today’s feminised millenial audiences have lost interest in this traditionally masculine class of film. Perhaps when they are inevitably called to fight in the next World War their disposition will change.

 

 

The Beauty and the Beast Award

For best animated film

Lilo & Stitch (2002)

The creative and unique yet decidedly touching Lilo and Stitch represents the best of the disney post-renaissance era.

 

 

The Rawcorp Award

For most redpilled film:

Gone with the Wind (1939)

With refreshing doses of confederate sympathy, mild ‘sexism’, and masculine virtue, Gone with the Wind is a movie that couldn’t be made today as a simple fact of political reality.’

 

 

The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas Award

For most bluepilled film:

Batman vs Superman (2016)

The notion of capeshit movies as serious dramas serves only as fodder to manchildren. Fortunately, Zack Snyder’s attempts at a coherent cinematic universe have continued to fall apart, much to the chagrin of plebeians like Cheng Puck.

 

 

The Klendathu Drop Award

For best science fiction

Interstellar (2014)

Bravo Nolan. While commonly misunderstood for its core themes by the more simple minded,  the 2014 science fiction epic Interstellar is not only one of the best movies of this century so far but has earned a commendable standing amongst the greatest science fiction films ever produced.

 

 

The MOTY Award for 2015/16

For film of the year:

And the prize goes to…

Merry SAAE to all.
