2013 Oscar Nominations Announced; Ben Affleck Snubbed for Best Director

Thursday, January 10th, 2013


That’s really all I have to say about the nominations, Ben Affleck got snubbed.  Argo was one of the best movies of the year and he didn’t get nominated for directing (although it’s up for Best Picture).  Don’t take this year’s nominations seriously; Flight got a nomination for writing.

The 85th Academy Awards will take place on February 24th, check out the nominations below:

Trailer for Sundance Hit BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD, This Looks Amazing

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012


Here is the first trailer for the 2012 Sundance film Beasts of the Southern Wild, it was met with a very positive response and watching the trailer it’s easy to see why.  There is so much to see in this little trailer, it’s art that you can look at again and again.  The unique visuals here are amazing, just watch it already.

The film will be at the Cannes Film Festival this month and opens in theaters on June 27th.

In a forgotten but defiant bayou community cut off from the rest of the world by a sprawling levee, a six-year-old girl exists on the brink of orphanhood. Buoyed by her childish optimism and extraordinary imagination, she believes that the natural world is in balance with the universe until a fierce storm changes her reality. Desperate to repair the structure of her world in order to save her ailing father and sinking home, this tiny hero must learn to survive unstoppable catastrophes of epic proportions.
