DouBleB’s 2012 Oscar Picks – Cinematography

The cinematography field is loaded with talent, as always, including the man who was director of photography for a Vanilla Ice film. Disclaimer: I have not seen every single one of this year’s nominated movies, and I probably won’t for reasons that I don’t want to waste my time watching shit that was manufactured  just […]

DouBleB’s 2012 Oscar Picks – Costume Design

Costume design might seem like a super prissy category, but it’s not. Do you think [amazon_link id="B000NQRE0K" target="_blank" container="" container_class="" ]Braveheart[/amazon_link] is prissy? Because it was nominated, so was[amazon_link id="B0026FCNK2" target="_blank" container="" container_class="" ] 12 Monkeys[/amazon_link], [amazon_link id="B002XUBDVK" target="_blank" container="" container_class="" ]Gangs of New York[/amazon_link], [amazon_link id="B000NU2CY4" target="_blank" container="" container_class="" ]Gladiator[/amazon_link], and the awesomely unappreciated [amazon_link […]

Only nine movies have ever won the top prize without being nominated for editing, which doesn’t bode well for “[amazon_link id="0547735022" target="_blank" container="" container_class="" ]Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close[/amazon_link]” (which shouldn’t have been nominated anyways), “[amazon_link id=”B005J6LKVI” target=”_blank” […]

DouBleB’s 2012 Oscar Picks – Music (Original Score)

I apologize for the lateness in this post, I bought the Award-Winning Drive on Blu Ray and just got done watching it.   Now that I have seen it  again, and in hi-def, I think it would have made more money had it been marketed as a horror/thriller, rather than I don’t really know what. But […]
