Re: 2018 Tony Awards

His mood shift in the play is just as startling as the film’s Michael and Parsons does a great job of keeping the whole ensemble together through the Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf-style drunken confrontations that begin to accumulate. My reaction of the films is that, even while they cover much th...

Re: Best Cinematography 1997

Titanic brings up the question of how much credit goes to the cinematography vs. the special effects. For example, the night sky when Jack and Rose hang on to the piece of ship is computer generated, obviously they did not shoot in the middle of the ocean at night; however, there would need to be c...

Re: 2018 Tony Awards

At first I thought, how great that someone my age will finally get to see Glenda Jackson give an acceptance speech at an awards show... until I did some digging and learned that she wasn't present to accept her Oscars or Emmys either! Presumably she'll show at the Tonys, right, considering there's ...

The Original BJ wrote:But of course, it is 100% my own fault for putting myself through this interminable THREE HOURS when I obviously know better by now!


At least with the three-hour run time, they were able to make more use of its $300million+ budget.

Re: Best Cinematography 1995

The most mind-boggling Bravehart Oscar for me is winning Makeup for blue warpaint. My feeling is the zero-gravity shooting in Apollo 13 warranted giving Cinematography to Dean Cundey and Director to Ron Howard. Yes, I think Opie deserves to be an Oscar winner.

Re: Best Cinematography 1994

Forrest Gump's defeat in this category makes less and less sense with every passing year. These days, a victory for state of the art visual effects goes hand in hand with a victory for cinematography. For example: Inception, Hugo, Life of Pi, and Gravity. The films that won joint visual effects/cin...

Re: Cannes 2018

I really do feel that for the first time in my cinema going life of over 40 years that I am being blackmailed into undertaking something (namely streaming) that I do not want to do. It's rather odd that at a time when more films are getting made than ever, or at least it seems that way, that I have...

I am somewhat relieved that Mueller seems to be pivoting from Russia to porn stars. Porn stars don't have nuclear weapons.
