I'll say this...

For the 1st time in a long time most of the movies up for best picture a lot of people have seen except for Jon Dahl.

I remember in the past that there has been movies up for best picture that I have never heard of much less seen,... win. Or they appeared in the theater for a week, no one watched, flopped big time money wise, but make it in the best picture category.

I'll take a pass on all of these, except perhaps Flight. In terms of seeing any of them.

The Oscars is the worst combo of circle-jerk and public caning. There's a VFX protest apparently right outside, and someone who mentioned it got played off way early in their alotted time. Award-winning films with effects comanies that are now bankrupt, or whatever. I don't know, I'm trying not to be swayed by the fact I think computer effects are 100% bullshit unless it's an actual 3D film.


So, yeah. Not watching, but I wouldn't have anyway regardless. Snore.

Lincoln got Best Set Design....?


I have never understood how a movie that is historical based, that comes with an abundant of references such as museums, photos, actual preserved clothing and furniture can win Best Set Design, while a fantasy based film like the Hobbit, where everything is invented based on the designer's own imagination never win.

Hobbit also came with alot of references, about 9 hours worth over three parts.
Nothing new was really added.

Yeah for Argo, Silver Linings and Django. They were actually good films IMO.
Loved Django.

You are talking maybe 15% of the film. The Village, and the Elves domain...everything seemed to stand alone from the LOTR

I'm more interested in how the VFX guys got cut off while trying to say something about the current special effects industry in Hollywood.

Here's the gist of the problem they're facing today:
