Best Cinematography 2017

And here we are. Any lineup that includes Darkest Hour can’t be put on the list of the great, but a historic grouping for at least a couple of reasons. One of them is the inclusive of Rachel Morrison for Mudbound. Her cinematography utilizing shallow depth of field is the most interesting aspect of ...

Vice/Untitled Adam McKay Movie reviews

Well, not other people's reviews. Mine. Last week, I was fortune enough to sit in on an early screening of Adam McKay's untitled new movie, formerly titled Backseat but I believe it will now be titled Vice. Which is kind of a no-brainer. Vice is a continuation of McKay's video essay style of filmmak...

Re: A Star is Born reviews

I have a friend who is a film critic at Toronto. At this point, he has seen First Man, A Star is Born, Widows, and a few others I'm not recalling at this moment. While he didn't love A Star is Born (he gave it a "B"), he said he could very easily see it winning Best Picture. That said, he ...

Best Cinematography 2016

So crazy to be catching up to this year already, and even crazier to think very soon it will be two years past. ThIt's so strange that the bulk of the Best Picture nominees (Hell or High Water, Hacksaw Ridge, Fences, Hidden Figures) would have been shocking inclusions, while the ones circling the li...

Widows reviews

This year is really heating up. Especially in the field of Best Actress. Although to be fair, since 2015 that's always been the case. If/when Viola Davis is nominated this year, I believe she will be the most nominated woman of color with a whopping... four. https://www.indiewire.com/2018/09/widows-...

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

It’s a clear demonstration of incapacity if the President doesn’t understand that he cannot fire the Vice President.

Re: Everything Is Great and Amazing

Two theories come to mind: 1) this is a move by high-ranking Republicans to desperately try to re-instill hope and trust in party loyalists and hold onto a few seats. 2) everybody and their mother has heard the Pence conspiracy at this point (“Lodestar”). What if that is a trap to get Trump to try t...

Re: Best Cinematography 2015

Sorry for the abbreviated post... Easy vote for Carol but this is overall a very strong group of nominees. Three of the nominees (Lubezki, Richardson, Seale) showcased mad man visions to divergent opinions, while the other two (Deakins, Lachmann) held their bag of tricks closer to their more classic...

Strong reviews in general, with the Gleib in over-the-moon mode.

Re: First Man reviews

You guys beat me to the punch... "Oscar math" can lead one to look pretty silly in retrospect. "Steven Spielberg + Meryl Streep + Tom Hanks + The Writer of Spotlight = Guaranteed Oscar Nominations!" To be fair, we were right. The Post did technically receive more than one Oscar n...

Best Cinematography 2014

I think I can get away with voting despite the fact that I haven’t seen Unbroken because I think I can safely say that the remaining nominees make for a pretty stellar lineup. And yet there’s a stunt quality to each of them. It’s saying something that my least favorite nominee is Robert Yeoman for h...

R.I.P. John McCain

Well, I'm from Arizona so I'll post it... Sen. John McCain died yesterday after a long battle with brain cancer. There's a lot to be said about this complicated guy. He was there at the dawn of my political awakening, in the run up to the 2000 election. I think the most interesting thing about him i...
