Some of you might have noticed that I skipped last week’s post. It was the first in… years that I just didn’t even start a draft for. I don’t know what happened. But I’m back on track this week with another Oscar Winners Edition. This week we’re looking into Best Cinematography and Best Visual Effects. Again I tried to find a theme within a theme as it has become my thing.
PS: The fact that in the entire Academy Award history no female cinematographer has won this category is giving me hives right now. Honestly… complete disbelief.
With a theme that has so much variety, it’s so great to add another theme within. This week I thought about parenthood’s difficulties and the hardships of having a child. Or, in other ways, having a child and then loosing them. Because I thought about the fact that once you become a parent, you never loose that part of yourself. Even if the worlds rips it away from you.
Here is a theme I have not been familiar with… ever. Like, western and me know about each other, but we don’t hang out because let me be honest, I don’t really like this genre. There are a few movies I’ll mention here that are obviously western and that I’ve actually enjoyed. But as a general rule, I don’t seek out westerns in my spare time.
It is back! Last time I took a commercial break, it was September and I have no idea what happened because I never planned for this ridiculously long hiatus. Technically a lot has happened, but not really. It’s just another adult life slowly drifting towards old age – in other words, my birthday’s this month and I don’t like it…
