CGI Done Right: Gollum in Lord of the Rings

0

Nowadays, with major advances in technology CGI is playing a huge role in the movie making industry. Of course sometimes creators can go a little too far with CGI making the realistic looking aliens or monsters not so realistic looking and instead creepy or annoying (see Jar Jar Binks) but when they get it right it is nearly perfect. 

Our Favorite Performances: Leonardo DiCaprio in The Aviator

0

Many people were upset and disappointed this year when Leonardo DiCaprio lost his fourth and fifth Oscar (Best Actor and Best Picture for The Wolf of Wall Street which he also produced) this year to Matthew McConaughey. While I would have loved for him to win, I knew that it wasn't going to happen. The Academy tends to pick winners that make one excellent movie, like Jean Dujardin for The Artist, Halle Berry for Monster's Ball, rather than actors constantly producing knockout performances in every film. Sure, there are exceptions like Daniel Day-Lewis and Cate Blanchett, but they are rare. "Why give the gold to someone who will continue to create a career of golden performances even if they lose?" That's the Academy's mantra. I think we all know deep down that eventually Leo's Oscar curse will break and until then we will continue to watch and root for him.

Due to the recent release of the latest, and in my opinion greatest, Harry Potter film we thought it was only fitting for our next match to have two great wizards face off.  Therefore, this round will contain Harry Potter’s magical mentor Dumbledore and the Baggins’ confidante Gandalf.  Both are masters of their craft, and would make formidable foes in a “no holds barred” feud.
