The Academy Awards are upon us! Join us as we discuss our Oscar picks and those nominees which deserve to win the most.
Science fiction films may be popular and profitable but they don’t get much respect at the Oscars (which will be here very soon). Whichever movie finally wins, the odds are that it will not be a science fiction film. Looking at the history of the Oscars, they haven’t been very kind to the genre that gave us Star Trek and Star Wars.
Everybody knows the Oscars is a bunch of old people that are as predictable as an elephant in an ocean. In other words, who knows what they will do and why. Well deserving films get pushed aside because they gain too much popularity, or best actors simply don’t win. Whatever, it is all opinion, but there is still one major problem I have. Their utter disrespect for animated films
Ingmar Bergman leaves his mark the way a nightmare leaves a scar. His films haunt you, they're hard. You confront the difficulty, it mends, and you're stronger for it. He maintained a strict intimacy in his work environment. His cast and crew rarely succeeded more than 30 closely knit members, and even fewer remained while shooting. With this light ensemble he produced classics in surplus that explored grand ideas with minimal means. But when I say classic, I don't mean the way people consider Forrest Gump one. I mean a hard classic, the kind that filmmakers pay their inspirational dues, and critics and historian's sob over with glee.
