Fellow film blogger Squasher from Film Actually is hosting a contest in honor of the upcoming Oscars. While the real nominations will be announced tomorrow, the contest asks you to make your predictions beforehand. In true FTS spirit, I’m getting mine in at the last minute. Keep reading to see what I movies I think will be nominated.
Every January, blogs of all types are bombarded with loads of ‘Top Whatever Lists’ and well, FTS is no exception! It’s time to take a crack at the year past by putting together a few 2012 In Review posts. We’ll be taking a look at the best movies in multiple genres, our least favorite flicks, and of course, our Top 10 of the Year podcast. We start off today by giving you our collaborative list of the top 5 horror movies we watched in 2012. Take a look!
When you watch as many movies as I do over the course of a year, sometimes you look back and realize how quickly some films will fall out of your conciseness. There are some instances when I will read about a film and forget it even came out that year. But this list isn’t limited to bad or forgettable movies, but the ones that aren’t discussed frequently. Specifically, I wanted to highlight amazing scenes from those type of films. Check out my list of memorable scenes you might have missed and I’ll be sure to shoot you a spoiler warning if need be.
Hopefully everyone had a a safe New Years and is ready to move on to a new set of films for 2013. Before we do that, let’s take a moment to put together some of last month’s highlights including box office stats, my favorite posts and new blogs I’m into.
Often times, after I finish watching a film, I spend a bunch of time online looking at message boards and reading reviews, trying to see what other people thought of the movie. But if a film contains some noteworthy special effects, chances are I’m nerding out doing fx research and scouring youtube. The technical aspects of a film and what goes into that process, anything from the camera work to the makeup, has consistently been my favorite thing to dissect in movies. In this series I explore that passion and break down key effects work. Today I’m looking at The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.
Like a lot of other film fans, I have a love/hate relationship with the Oscars. Sometimes the Academy picks my favorites or choices I find the most deserving, and other times they completely confound me. I like to debate them though, and would love to actually blog more about the race. I feel like I’m always short on time, so I rely on all the other movie blogs out there to give me their best speculation and updates. Here are five blogs I follow (and so should you) to get the scoop on all the awards coverage.
