‘Dark City’ 20th anniversary: The underrated sci-fi classic was released in 1998, but got no love from the Oscars

‘Dark City’ 20th anniversary: The underrated sci-fi classic was released in 1998, but got no love from the Oscars
Dark City” was released on February 27, 1998, and it helped me fall in love with movies. It also sparked my interest in awards. During the same period I was wrestling with continued Emmy snubs for “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Dark City” made me wonder how the Oscars could miss the boat on what is still one of the most visually and narratively innovative films I’ve seen. So on its 20th anniversary I decided to revisit the underrated science-fiction gem, which deserved Oscars 20 years ago.

Dark City” was a unique amalgam of genres with elements of murder mystery, film noir, horror and sci-fi dystopia, using those tropes to examine human memory and how we construct and perform our identities. It was undoubtedly a tough sell for New Line Cinema, and even tougher when you consider that at the time “Titanic” was still swimming circles around other releases at the box office.

Oscars flashback: Daniel Day-Lewis bows before queen Helen Mirren for 2nd Best Actor win [Watch]

Oscars flashback: Daniel Day-Lewis bows before queen Helen Mirren for 2nd Best Actor win [Watch]
Exactly 10 years ago at the 80th Academy Awards, Daniel Day-Lewis won his second Oscar as Best Actor. As he arrived on stage, he bowed before “queen” Helen Mirren as she used the statuette to knight him for his victory in “There Will Be Blood” (watch the video above).

After his surprise Oscar win for “My Left Foot” at the 1990 ceremony almost two decades earlier, Day-Lewis had become an official A-List star. He followed with memorable performances throughout the early 1990s, including “The Last of the Mohicans” and Martin Scorsese’s “The Age of Innocence.” He then received an additional Oscar nomination for “In the Name of the Father,” playing the wrongfully convicted Gerry Conlin but lost the award to Tom Hanks for “Philadelphia.”

BAFTAs 2018: A goodbye trophy for Daniel Day-Lewis (‘Phantom Thread’) would tie the BAFTA record

BAFTAs 2018: A goodbye trophy for Daniel Day-Lewis (‘Phantom Thread’) would tie the BAFTA record
Phantom Thread” is expected to be the last film in Daniel Day-Lewis’s illustrious career as he has announced his plan to retire from acting. Could the Englishman get a farewell hug at the BAFTA Awards? Should he win Best Actor he would walk away from the industry tying the all-time record for most wins.

Up until 1967 the BAFTA Film Awards actually handed out two acting trophies per category: one to a British performer and the other to a foreigner. The current record is five wins and is held by a trio of acclaimed Brits: Maggie Smith, Peter Finch and Judi Dench — Dench technically has six competitive wins if you count the now-defunct category of Most Promising Newcomer, which she won for “Four in the Morning” (1965).

Finch won both the BAFTA and Oscar together just once: Best Actor for “Network” (1976); unfortunately, both of those victories were posthumous as he passed

There’s always a lot of talk leading up to the big day about who will win what awards. We try to make our predictions based on trends from the past, but we can’t help to be swayed by our own personal opinions. Some movies truly strike a chord with us, while others aren’t interesting at all. Furthermore, Oscar films are usually heavy in the drama department and therefore they aren’t always the easiest or most entertaining movies to watch.

That’s why we’re here. Here is your guide to the nominees of this year’s Academy Awards. We’ve compiled the following brief summaries,

‘Blade Runner 2049’ sound mixers Doug Hemphill, Ron Bartlett: ‘Blade Runner was in our DNA’ [Exclusive Video Interview]

‘Blade Runner 2049’ sound mixers Doug Hemphill, Ron Bartlett: ‘Blade Runner was in our DNA’ [Exclusive Video Interview]
“‘Blade Runner’ was in our DNA,” reveals sound mixer Doug Hemphill about his work on “Blade Runner 2049.” Hemphill and his colleague Ron Bartlett previously collaborated with Ridley Scott on the 2007 final-cut version of the 1982 sci-fi classic, re-mixing the film with all the new bells and whistles available to them. When they lent their talents to Denis Villeneuve‘s 2017 followup they reaped an Oscar nomination for Best Sound Mixing. Watch our exclusive video interview with Hemphill and Bartlett above.

See Will ‘Blade Runner 2049’ get Oscar revenge for unforgivable snubs of Ridley Scott’s original classic?

Their experience working on the original years after its release helped inform their work on the sequel. “It was great hearing [Scott’s] ideas,” Bartlett explains, “taking those thematic elements and moving it into this one.” This was especially true when it came to Vangelis‘s iconic score, which “2049” composers Hans Zimmer and Benjamin Wallfisch paid

Oscars 2018: War is hell, but it’s heaven for sound editors and sound mixers
Dunkirk” is the heavy favorite to win Oscars for Best Sound Editing (for Richard King and Alex Gibson) and Best Sound Mixing (for Gregg Landaker, Gary Rizzo and Mark Weingarten). These two fields are some of the most misunderstood at the Oscars, by audiences, by some voters and, admittedly, by some awards pundits like me. But because war movies like “Dunkirk” give audiences so much to hear — explosions, gunshots, jet engines, dialogue and dramatic music — they tend to win awards in these categories.

Sound mixers record and adjust the levels of different sound elements, while editors assemble those elements, from dialogue to sound effects to sounds they create themselves for the production. Or as our Oscarologist Tim Gray (La Times) put it, “After the sound editor has assembled what the audience hears, the sound mixer determines how they hear it.” Sound experts within the motion picture academy decide who gets nominated at the Oscars,

Daniel Day-Lewis movies: 12 greatest films, ranked worst to best, include ‘Lincoln,’ ‘My Left Foot,’ ‘Phantom Thread,’ ‘There Will Be Blood’
In the summer of 2017 Oscar-winning actor Daniel Day-Lewis surprised Hollywood, London, and the entire entertainment world when he revealed that he is retiring from acting and would make no more films. His final performance in Paul Thomas Anderson‘s recently-released “Phantom Thread” has brought Day-Lewis his sixth Oscar nomination and his eighth Golden Globe nom (losing there to Gary Oldman for “Darkest Hour”).

One of the most respected actors of his generation, Day-Lewis is the only man who has won three Oscars for Best Actor. Those victories were for “My Left Foot” (1989), “There Will Be Blood” (2007), and “Lincoln” (2012). In fact he is one of only three men to win acting Oscars three times; the others are Walter Brennan and Jack Nicholson. In addition, he has won two Best Actor awards each from the Screen Actors Guild and the Golden Globes.

Daniel Day-Lewis Made A Balenciaga Dress From Scratch To Prepare For ‘Phantom Thread’
Daniel Day-Lewis, with three Oscars already in the bag, retired from acting this past year, with his final role being another brilliant performance in Paul Thomas Anderson‘s “Phantom Thread.” The ultimate method actor, Day-Lewis is known for taking extreme measures to perfect a given role. He apprenticed with an actual butcher for his role as Bill “The Butcher” in “Gangs of New York“; he was fully in character, both on and off-screen, as Abraham Lincoln in “Lincoln“; he learned to build canoes, lived with Native Americans, learned to track and skin animals for his role in “The Last Of The Mohicans“; he refused to use his hands, only using his feet to complete daily tasks, for his role as cerebral palsy-inflicted, celebrated painter Christie Brown in “My Left Foot“; he learned to speak Czech for “The Unbearable Lightness of Being,” oh, and lest we forget, he spent nights in jail,

By Fred Blosser

The Warner Archive Collection has released John Landis’ “Innocent Blood” (1992) in a new, remastered Blu-ray edition. The Blu-ray incorporates two minutes of footage that appeared in overseas prints but were not included in previous U.S. releases. The film opens with a montage of the Pittsburgh skyline after dark, scored with Jackie Wilson’s lush 1960 ballad, “Night.” French vampire Marie (Anne Parillaud, in a lengthy nude scene) sits alone in her hotel room, deliberating on where to find her next sanguinary meal. She opens a newspaper to an article about a local Mafia crew headed by Sal “The Shark” Macelli and smiles: “I thought -- what about Italian?” She allows herself to be picked up by one of Sal’s henchmen, Tony (Chazz Palminteri), whose CD player is loaded with Sinatra discs. Just as Tony thinks she’s going to have sex with him, she chomps into
