Oscar: Snubs that could happen

Golden-Globes-Nominations-Oscar-IsaacOscar: Snubs that could happen

There will undoubtedly be some major snubs when the Oscar nominations are announced January 16th. Major front-runners have often been pushed aside. Some say this is because voters won’t pick the obvious choice so they can help an underdog get in.

Unfortunately this helps to eliminate a lot of major front-runners. (Which is said to have happened last year to Ben Affleck for “Argo.”)

So really though, no one is completely safe. So here are list of some obvious choices that could get the booth on the morning of the 16th.

A cult classic is a movie that develops a cult following. A film that many fans may discover at a later time, may quote consistently or may evoke discussion. You can’t determine that a film is a cult classic when it is released. The reviews could be bad or good, the box-office could be bad or good, it doesn’t matter. At this time we can only predict what may become a cult classic in time. So here are the top 10 potential cult classics of 2013: (more…)

Film Analysis: Was “Spring Breakers” genius?

What can be said about “Spring Breakers”? Critics were divided on the independent art-film. the film received a moderate 65% on Rotten Tomatoes. While some critics couldn’t take to the supposed social commentary, others were quick to call the film a cult classic, often citing an outstanding performance by James Franco as Alien, a rapper who has climbed the financial ladder by becoming a notorious drug/firearm dealer.

A filmmaker’s creative workflow can often come off as too obvious or even too subtle. I will paraphrase Woody Allen: when the acclaimed filmmaker was asked about the secret to filmmaking he stated that there wasn’t one, you just have a story and you tell it.
