As a lifelong horror fan I’ve seen lots of gross things. Having watched films like Saw and Hostel, while being aware of how both use graphic body horror, I’ve never felt unnerved watching them. I’ve always considered myself to have an iron gut when it comes to body horror. And then I saw Kevin Smith’s […]

26 minutes ago Warning: Midsommar SPOILERS ahead! Prior to the release of Midsommar, director Jordan Peele spoke about Ari Aster’s Hereditary follow-up having some of the “most atrociously disturbing imagery” he’d ever seen in a movie. Now that the film is out, he has been proven right because Midsommar is full of scenes that horrify […]

One of my dreams has always been to drive a convertible down the iconic Highway 1. The highway stretches all along the West coast, and the most popular route is from San Francisco to LA. We drove from SF to San Diego and stayed in SD for a few nights. We were blessed to be […]

    “Us” is a great film that feels like an extended episode of a show. The premise is a lot of fun and it is worth seeing for Lupita Nyong’o alone as she portrays two very different characters. This story I would have rated higher if her family had been explored more or the […]

It’s odd to see a Toy Story film that doesn’t feel essential. The franchise is one of those rare trilogies where each film has outstripped the one before it, adding layers and depth – and in Toy Story 3, surprising fear and emotion – to create something that feels artistically necessary, retrospectively casting the story […]

Given its record-shattering 32 Emmy nominations on Tuesday, “Game of Thrones” naturally dominated the craft categories as well for its Season 8 finish, grabbing 17 craft nods. However, HBO’s highly acclaimed limited series “Chernobyl” came in second with 14 craft nods. Also faring well were Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” and FX’s “Fosse/Verdon” with 10 nominations; Netflix’s “Russian Doll” with nine; HBO’s “True Detective” and “Barry” with eight; HBO’s “Deadwood” reunion movie, Netflix’s “Our Planet,” and, surprisingly, last season’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” from Hulu with seven; “RuPaul’s Drag Race” with six; and Showtime’s “Escape at Dannemora,” Netflix’s “When They See Us,” HBO’s “Sharp Objects,” FX’s “Pose,” Netflix’s “Glow,” and Nat Geo’s “Free Solo” with five. Meanwhile, the under performers included Hulu’s “Catch 22” remake and Netflix’s “The Umbrella Academy,” with just two nominations (sound editing and supporting visual effects for the former and production design and visual effects for the latter), and Amazon’s “Homecoming” (from director Sam Esmail) with only one nod for cinematography. Shut out completely from the craft categories were Netflix’s trippy Maniac” (from director Cary Fukunaga), the experimental “Bandersnatch” from “Black Mirror,” “The Twilight Zone” remake from Jordan Peele, and Paramount’s western, “Yellowstone.” Among the “Thrones” craft nods: Casting For A Drama Series, Single-Camera Series Cinematography (One Hour), Fantasy/Sci-Fi Costumes, Hairstyling For A Single-Camera Series, Makeup For A Single-Camera Series (Non-Prosthetic), Music Composition For A Series (Original Dramatic Score, Ramin Djawadi), Production Design For A Narrative Period Or Fantasy Program (One Hour Or More), Prosthetic Makeup For A Series, Limited Series, Movie Or Special, Single-Camera Picture Editing For A Drama Series), Sound Editing For A Comedy Or Drama Series (One Hour), Sound Mixing For A Comedy Or Drama Series (One Hour), Special Visual Effects, and Stunt Coordination For A Drama Series, Limited Series Or Movie. “Game of Thrones” While “Thrones” has pretty much ruled costume (Michele Clapton) and production design (Deborah Riley), it has positively owned the VFX category, winning the last six consecutive seasons after losing out its first season. And it’s a lock to take the category one last time. For Season 8, it was nominated for the VFX in Episode 5 (“The Bells”), in which Dany (Emilia Clarke) unleashes her vengeful destruction of King’s Landing after the ambush of her fleet and the death of her beloved dragon Rhaegal in the previous episode. Weta Digital developed new tech for combining fire and water simulation. Weta was integral to Season 8, contributing more than 600 VFX shots for the epic battles propelled by dragonfire and the large-scale destruction. Interestingly, HBO did not enter Episode 3 (“The Long Night”), with the bravura Battle of Winterfell, a continuous onslaught with 30,000 zombie Wights and thousands of Dothrakis with simulated, flaming swords, the series’ greatest VFX achievement. The gripping “Chernobyl” miniseries (created by Craig Mazin and directed by Johan Renck), distinguished itself in period/fantasy production design, period costumes, cinematography, editing, hairstyling and makeup, sound editing and mixing, supporting VFX, and original score (Hildur Guðnadóttir). Production designer Luke Hull, in particular, did masterful work in authentically recreating the Soviet nuclear plant in Pripyat, Ukraine. The monstrous-looking plant, with its creepy concrete corridors and piping, served as a major character. “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” was back in Season 2, distinguishing itself in period/fantasy production design, period costumes, cinematography, editing, hairstyling and makeup (non-prosthetic), music supervision, and sound mixing. It will be competing against “Fosse/Verdon” in many of the same categories. The biopic about the romantic and artistic partnership between visionary choreographer/director Bob Fosse (Sam Rockwell) and his dancing muse, Gwen Verdon (Michelle Williams) picked up noms in period/fantasy production design, period costumes, editing, hairstyle and makeup (prosthetic and non-prosthetic), music direction, music supervision, and sound mixing. “Chernobyl” The quirky “Russian Doll,” the “Groundhog Day”-like time loop, from creator/star Natasha Lyonne, picked up nods for contemporary production design and costume design, cinematography, editing, music supervision, sound editing, sound mixing, stunt coordination, and casting for a comedy. “True Detective,” the stirring murder mystery, with Emmy-nominated Mahershala Ali playing a troubled Arkansas cop during three different periods, did surprisingly well. In addition to its standout makeup and hair for aging and de-aging Ali, the series picked up nods for cinematography, main title design, original score (T Bone Burnett), and sound editing and sound mixing. “Our Planet” came away with cinematography, score and main title theme (Steven Price), sound editing, and sound mixing. “Escape at Dannemora,” the spot-on historical drama from director Ben Stiller, captured noms for contemporary production design and costumes, original score (Edward Shearmur), supporting VFX, and casting. The standout was the production design by Mark Ricker, who accurately recreated the castle-like Clinton Correctional Facility in upstate New York, with its signature cell block structure. “When They See Us” Ava DuVernay’s powerful Central Park 5 limited series, “When They See Us,” made a good showing with noms for Bradford Young’s striking cinematography, Kris Bower’s haunting score, sound editing, sound mixing, and casting (which delivered an inspired ensemble). Meanwhile, in the new category for Documentary score, the nominees were: “Free Solo” (Marco Beltrami and Brandon Roberts), “Game of Thrones: The Last Watch” (Hannah Peel), “Hostile Planet” (“Oceans,” Benjamin Wallfisch), “Love, Gilda” (Miriam Cutler), “Our Planet” (“One Planet,” Price), and “RBG” (Miriam Cutler).

Lena Waithe made headlines last month after calling out Hollywood’s black elite (e.g. Will Smith and Denzel Washington, among others) for not financing small- or mid-budget black films.  The controversy led many readers to overlook another poignant observation in that same article. When asked about other issues in Hollywood that concerned her, Waithe spoke frankly […]
