And The Oscar Goes To....

And The Oscar Goes To....

So "Avatar" is the most successful film of all time, but "The Hurt Locker" was better apparently! My film of the year "A Serious Man" won nothing but it was nominated for Best Picture which I only found out tonight. So the other main thing about tonight's/this morning's Oscars was the fact that they didn't let anyone who won an award make a fecking speech, apart from the main awards of course, mic's were turned off and lots of the camera cutting to someone in the crowd literally mouthing "why won't they let them speak?". Yet the intro into the Best Actor and Actress parts were really drawn out with a co-star coming on and gushing about the nominee for ages. But anyway, what else happened. I thought there were no Irish winners but Richard Baneham, won for best visual effects. The show started off with Neil Patrick Harris, who no one on the Sky panel (David Baddiel, Ronni Ancona and Mark Dolan) knew, doing a song and dance

You gotta see this... - The Return of Captain Invincible

You gotta see this... - The Return of Captain Invincible

While watching Not Quite Hollywood: The Wild, Untold Story of Ozploitation! , the excellent documentary by Mark Hartley which recounts the other, dirtier and wilder side of Australian cinema, there was a clip for a 1983 superhero-movie musical, directed by Phillipe Mora and starring Alan Arkin and Christopher Lee (seriously!), featuring songs written by Richard O Brien and Richard Hartley of "Rocky Horror Picture Show" fame. I said to myself I need to see this movie, and now I have. The plot is straight forward enough, Captian Invincible (Arkin) is your typical 50s American superhero, but is then accused of being a Communist (he wears a red cape) and charged for flying without a licence. He decides to flee America and head to Australia to become an alcoholic for the next thirty years, as you do. However when his nemesis, Mister Midnight (Lee), steals a hypno-ray, Invincible is called upon to come out of retirement and get it back. The musical number in which the President

Shola's Top 20 films from the ones i saw in  2009....

Shola's Top 20 films from the ones i saw in 2009....

Right so here's my favourite bits of cinema I saw last year: 20. Looking For Eric - Dir. Ken Loach Ken Loach's love letter to mentally ill Man United fans (and lets face it there are even more after that Leeds result) begins the list. It really is what you expect from Loach - funny, gritty and heartwarming. 19. Adventureland - Dir. Greg Mottola The film for anyone who's ever had a shitty job according to the poster and that's probably what the studio and marketing men were hoping. From the director of Superbad, but more Freaks and Geeks really. No bad thing. 18. Fantastic Mr.Fox - Dir. Wes Anderson Yes that's right a Wes Anderson movie that wasn't my favourite film of the year! I know why some people get really pissed off with his style and movies, but I love them. But, for some reason, I just didn't get into this as fully as I have with his other films, and I did find bits of this a bit boring. But still it's great to see a kids fil

Me & Orson Welles

Me & Orson Welles

Thanks IFI for the free preview of Richard Linklater's latest directorial effort last night, it was the perfect antidote to a wet November Monday. The actor who portrayed Orson Welles (and quite well I may add) Christian McKay even stopped in for a quick chat about his research and a Q&A (with just one question as he pointed out, but this was mainly due to his stories being quite interesting and well told). The film itself was equally as enjoyable and dealt with a young Orson Welles' stage production of Julius Caesar as told from the perspective of Zac Efron's character. The film had the right balance of nostalgia and humour, and a very good cast with the two above, Claire Danes, Ben Chaplin, Zoe Kazan, Eddie Marsan, Kelly Reilly and James Tupper.
