Oscar Week Countdown: Who’s Going To Win? (Day 4)

The weekend is here and that means we’re just a couple of days away from one of the most important days of the year for Hollywood, The Oscars. Oh, I’m buzzing with excitement. So, on this lovely Friday, I’m going to make some bold predictions for four categories; Best Original Score, Best Animated Film, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Supporting Actress. Enjoy!

The Nominees for Best Original Score:

Black Panther, If Beale Street Could Talk, Mary Poppins Returns, Blackkklansman, Isle of Dogs

To be fair, I haven’t seen the rest of the movies in this category but even if I did I think I would still give the win to Black Panther. Ludwig Goransson is a phenomenal composer with a particularly powerful ear for music. His collaboration with Marvel to create this heroic yet seamlessly ethnic score is not only brilliant but a work of art as well.

Now, I did watch a little bit of Isle of Dogs and I definitely found the music stunning, considering that the music seemed very much like the narrator of the film. Still, Black Panther wins in my book. 🙂

Throwback Friday: Reevaluating ‘Revenge of the Sith’ After ‘The Last Jedi’

Star Wars is one of the reasons why I love life. I’ve watched these movies since I was a child, learning the scenes and memorizing the dialogue to the point where I can recite it at will. And while not all of the Star Wars film are equal I love analyzing these films to the core, discovering the intricacies of the story. That’s why for this week’s Throwback Friday I’m resharing this post I wrote a while back. Enjoy!

Since Disney has acquired Lucasfilm I haven’t watched the prequel trilogy as often as I once did. After The Force Awakens, my enjoyment of the prequels lessened considerably and then after Rogue One managed to blow my socks off it’s rare for me to want to watch a prequel film, or at least be able to watch a prequel through one sitting. So imagine my surprise when I suddenly got the urge to watch Revenge of the Sith last night. I haven’t sat down and really watched this movie in years, why would I want to watch it now? But there was this certain sense, this urge I felt to see how I perceive Revenge of the Sith after the somewhat shortcomings of The Last Jedi. So, I turned it on and I watched it.
