Technically, it is an Oscar winning movie. However, that Oscar was for makeup, and the makeup effects in the movie were pretty good. Without looking it up, name the movie that won for makeup last year. The fact that 99.9% of the movie going population can't answer that question correctly tells you just how important that is in the grand scheme of things.

"Wolfman" might get two nods at the most, but I doubt they will even come close to winning anything.

Perhaps, but I'm sure Seltzerberg's "Vampire Movie" will no doubt make us all forget about this movie.

Well, it might have been me, but I thought Anthony Hopkins was just sleepwalking his way through the role, and I could tell a mile away who the original werewolf was going to be. But again, that's just me.

I have seen the Wolfman and I thought it was excellent. I would place it right next too "American Werewolf in London" or"The Howling." It was much better than Say the movie "Wolf" in1995 with Jack Nicholson. The effects in here were outstanding and the gore was definitely there. Don't listen to the negativity. I'm buying the Blue Ray on Tuesday, excellent film. I don't know what in the world your reason for marking it bad is. Benecio Del Toro was a perfect choice for the Wolfman. The effects were astonishing -- not poor like they claim. It's extremely gory and I thought brilliantly filmed. The cinematography is fantastic. 

It's not Shakespeare folks, it's a werewolf film, and in my opinion an excellent one. I can think of plenty of worse garbage out there. "Sex in the City Part 2" anyone?

Okay, we get, but that still doesn't mean it's a good movie by any standard, B-movie or otherwise.

Yeah, this one's not razzie-worthy, agreed. It's bad, but not bad enough.
 
Burn, as far as "Hollywood Horror Movie Logic" goes, I stopped worrying about that since The Lost Boys (where they explained that if you invite a vampire into your house, he's completely immune to garlic, holy water, and all the other traditional methods of dealing with bloodsuckers).

I think it's just for the atomsphere and how the British are sterotype as being all well-spoken and proper, so it's only fitting to turn them in savage wolves and what not.
