  2. I love so many things about this. JGL for Maniac, ERW for Thirteen, Dreamers in Adapted Screenplay. Kill Bill for Art Direction.

    I miss that Into The West song from Return of the King though. I thought it was so lovely!

    1. Thanks. Glad you love those picks.

      I like Into the West, but I would've put You Will Be My Ain True Love from Cold Mountain in ahead of it.

  3. YEY Bill Nighy! His work in Love Actually is so underrated. He was easily my favorite thing in that lovely movie.

  5. I LOVE Master & Commander, I wouldn't mind Crowe winning Best Actor that year though I also love Bill Murray in Lost in Translation.

    Gerry is one of those movies I still need to see, even more curious about it now that it won the Cinspec Award :D

    1. Ooh, I forgot you loved MAC too. Crowe and Bettany are so great together in that.

      Gerry is a great film, but I didn't love it on first viewing, as it's slow-paced and has minimal dialogue. Hope you get to check it out some time.

    2. I didn't think I'd enjoy M&C as much as I did but it really kept me engrossed in the story, it might be one of my favorite Crowe performance. He just commands the screen every minute he's on. I might actually do a list on sea captains now that I think about it :D

    3. Ooh, you should do a list! Yeah, Crowe is just right for the part, and the film is very engrossing, indeed.

  6. Interesting year. City of God is my personal Best Pic of '03.

  7. Touching the Void is amazing, hope you get to see that soon from your "not seen" list
    I don't remember Love Actually score, pretty great apparently :)

    1. I'll probably try to catch up on films I've missed once I finish posting my CinSpec Awards from 1930-present. I should be done in the next few months. Though, I do eventually want to start catching up on the 1920s as well.

      Oh, Love Actually has a pretty great score IMHO. If you're interested, check out the soundtrack suite:

      Or just the "PM's Love Theme":
