Oh no, I've been waiting for this day just to prove to you that you have no clue what you're talking about, and your overhyping of this movie was ridiculous.

Just shows how trollish you are seeing that I was never waiting for this day.

Umm...no. There's a difference between she "must have" an Oscar nom and she "will have" one. Learn the difference. You're arguing that I said she "will have" a nom.

2. And remember this line, the same one YOU brought up first: "Some people have already put Esther as the new horror icon along with Jason Vorhees and Freddy Krueger." And you agree with this? Come on.
So don't tell me I'm full of lies, alright.

When did I EVER say I agreed with that line? When? Right, I didn't. I simply pointed out what other people said, not associating myself with that particular line.

You're the one who doesn't have a clue because I've never said the things you've charged of me saying. Prepared to have your post, yet again, be torn apart:

1. I said she has a good chance of being nominated if the Academy actually nominated actors with good performances. If you go to my original post where I say that, I added the "if" which is me suggesting that the Academy largely ignore performances from the thriller/horror genre. This is why performances like Jack Nicholson (The Shining) and Marcia Gay Harden (The Mist) are ignored. The word "if" changes a lot of things.
2. I have never compared Fuhrman to the iconic villains you've listed. In fact, you're the one who brought it up to discussion. I don't know what you're trying to do there. You ain't foolin' anybody.

I'm seriously thinking of ignoring you on this site now. This pointless bickering is spending me a lot of time by doing absolutely nothing. I shouldn't be arguing with a little simpleton like yourself.

Well, well, well. The Oscar nods have been released, and look who is NOT up for Best Supporting Actress! One Isabelle Fuhrman for "Orphan". You know, the role where she had just "as good a chance of being nominated as Mo'nique does". The role that is being considered "the next Freddy from "Nightmare on Elms Street" or Jason from "Friday the 13th"." The role in a medicore movie, which opened to mixed reviews, with no Oscar buzz behind, and only took in a modest gross at the box office. Yeah, that role.

I rest my case, ladies and gentlemen. Moviewizguy has NO clue whatsoever about what he's talking about.

If it sounds like something done before, it might be because it was done in an episode of "Buffy: The Vampire Slayer", in which Xander wakes up on more to find out he has been replaced by a clone of himself. That or one of many other movies in which the main character is replace with a copycat for some reason. The title of the movie itself is the same as that of movie made in 2005 about a man waking up in Coney Island with no memory of who he is.

Why do I say this? With a cast like this, I'm surprised this movie didn't get more attention.

Well, it could be that it doesn't matter how talented your cast is, they can only be as good as the material they are given to. That and the fact everyone wrote the movie off as a female version of "The Good Son" with an M. Night twist ending, which it pretty much is.

That's okay, just as long as you also understand that this movie is not going to reach the level of success that you claim it will, because it won't.

The fact that this got a Worst DVD of the Weak is just hilarious to me, considering MWG's rabid obsession with it. But when you start comparing Orphan with the other horror movies this year (other than PA) it stops looking all that bad. Jennifer's Body also may have had some originality to it, but it seemed to have failed, too.

And, by the way, I liked your joke, Michaels.

Well, I watch alot of indie movies that I hear are good, but did next to nothing at the box office because they were indie movies, even though the major studios like to pretend they don't exist by giving them NO marketing what so ever. But I don't go  posting on forums saying they are as iconic as other more famous movies in their genre, or should get Oscars nods, because I know it's not true.

Speaking of studios and indie movies, rumor has it that Paramount wants to go the way of "Blair Witch 2: Book of Shadows" by making a sequel to "Paranormal Activity." Which reminds me of that joke about a writer and director both saying how great their soup is...until a studio head pisses into it, and claims that he "made it better."

 

"Just once I want my life to be like an 80's movie ... but, no, no. John Hughes did not direct my life." ("Easy A", 2010)

You would too if a movie you saw was great, but nobody had seen it. 

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: I hardly think a film that grossed over $40 million can accurately be described as being seen by "nobody" (B.O. MoJo LINK). Among 2009's crop of crappy horror movies, ORPHAN ranks somewhere in mid-range, as far as ticket sales go -- Clearly dwarfed by the phenomenon that is PARANORMAL ACTIVITY, but still making more money than LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFTHALLOWEEN II or JENNIFER'S BODY.

You're not seriously asking this question, right? We all know the answer is YOU, you're just using this as an excuse to bump the topic up.

I think you should strongly consider a career in politics considering all the overhyping you like to do; many goverment campaigns could use someone like you.
