It’s Oscar fever time and this year it happened on my birthday … US time that is, so if I was living in the US I would have had an Oscar theme party but since I don’t, I was catching bits of it, in the office on the 25th of February, a Monday morning that clearly should have been spent at home.
And I didn’t win the office Oscar pool again.
Note to self: pick what I reckon the Academy would want to win and not what I want to win.
All in all I much prefer this year’s winners to last year’s, my only beef is sound mixing and editing. I’m trying to figure out if good sound editing and mixing is:-
- so realistic you don’t notice it
- so convincing that you believe transforming robots exist
where the former refers to the Bourne Ultimatum and the latter Transformers. If you can’t tell by now, I was gunning for Transformers but I do recognise it is much tougher to do the former rather than the latter. Oh well … I’ll remember my note for next year’s Oscars … …
