  • Fan Art Friday #88: Oscar by vjane

    10 months ago

    Becca RT Torturer

    It’s time for our weekly look at the best Rooster Teeth fan art from our community, curated by the fine folks at BIGBITE!


    This week’s featured artist is Elz, AKA @vjane, for this illustration of Oscar from RWBY.


    oscar___rwby_by_eliazeravenfeather-daydo


    Elz lives in Paris, France, where she’s a student/research engineer/neuroscientist (whoa). To create this piece, she sketched the lines with a pencil on paper and then colored it with MyPaint on her computer. (Side note: Elz says, “If you're looking for a good free software for painting, definitely go check out MyPaint.”)


    This illustration was inspired by a quote from Ozpin to Oscar: "Greatness in knowing that, when the world needed help, you were the one to reach out your hand." Elz says it captures how everyone has something unique that they can choose to put forward to help others and serve a greater cause, and that will be a game-changer at a certain point.

  • SILENCE Trailer - Martin Scorsese's Latest Film

    1 year ago

    IAmVeryMoist

    Martin Scorsese is getting old. With the knowledge of this unfortunate truth, we need to start to really appreciate any new Scorsese films that release from here on out. If you're a movie buff like myself you probably already do. However, we can all now celebrate that a month from now we will get to see the latest Martin Scorsese film entitled SILENCE. This film has been in development since 1990 and now we finally have the first trailer for the film starring Liam Neeson, Andrew Garfield, and Adam Driver. 

    silence-scorsese-movie-trailer-images-54

    This movie is ripe for Oscar potential, which makes sense in it's release timing right before the end of the year. The film follows a pair of Jesuit priests who travel to feudal Japan in search of their former mentor, played by Liam Neeson


    Hit up the trailer below and let me know your thoughts on it in the comments! 



  • #1 Pandemonium

    3 years ago

    olle

    The first beer of my "new seven" i Nils Oscar's Pandemonium. Described as a scotch ale and boasting an impressive gold prize from the 2014 Stockholm Beer and Whiskey Festival it intrigued me as I was botanizing amongst the beer racks of my local store.

    Taking off the bottle cap I was treated with a dry smell of roasted malt setting the tone right away; This beer is not casual consumption, it needs time and effort. Pouring it in to my lovely chalice I noticed a smooth foam being released, easily controlled by adjusting your pouring technique, resulting in a nice head.

    Taste-wise it was pretty much what I expected; dark, roasted malt with a hint of caramel and a nice bitter aftertaste lingering for a few seconds. Despite its impressive 7,4 % by volume the alcohol itself did not interfere with the taste, creating a nicely balanced beverage. Note that this beer is not Sunday afternoon BBQ in July, it's a rainy evening in fall, infront of an open fireplace. Personally I would drink it at British beer temperature, just below room temperature, to really get all the flavors as a colder one would rob you of these. As a company to a nice steak with root vegetables or perhaps a hearty and thick stew, Pandemonium really works great. A nice dark chocolate cake could also be a nice paring.

    Overall, a nice start to the week leaving me wanting more.

  • Best Picture Thoughts and Feelings

    3 years ago

    JRForan

    The 2015 Oscars are fast approaching and this is the first year I have ever seen all of the nominees. As a self-proclaimed film buff (or movie nerd, depending on who you ask), I figured I'd give my 2 cents on all the nominees. So without further adieu, let's get started.

    I wanted to start with the film I feel doesn't even deserve a nomination: The Grand Budapest Hotel. Now don't get me wrong, I love me some Ralph Fiennes, but this movie is just not great. Not even that good, really. It's the same movie Wes Anderson has been making for 14 years. Some writing style, same film making, same performances from the cast, same production design. It brings nothing new to the table and it just isn't a good movie. Plain and simple.

    Next, the movie that isn't great, but I can understand the nomination in some way: American Sniper. I understand this film is a commercial success, but honestly, it isn't great. Bradley Cooper, puts on a fine performance, but it's nothing special. The writing, the directing, it's fine, but it's nothing to write home about. All I felt while watching that movie is that Clint Eastwood was trying as hard as he possibly could to make "The Hurt Locker" but he couldn't do it. So he shoveled as much of it as he could into a bucket and made something that could almost be considered a propaganda film for the U.S. military and for Veteran's Services. I can appreciate that they used some real military men in the movie, but over all, it's trying way to hard to be something that it isn't.

    Next, the 3 way tie for Second Place: The Theory of Everything, Selma, and Boyhood. Now these movies still weren't mind-blowingly great, but there was something in them that makes them kind of special and worth the nod from the academy.
    Now, I'll be honest, I could not stand Boyhood. It was about an hour too long and I hated every single character aside from Ethan Hawke, and even he got a bit much at times. The writing was pretentious and the acting amplified that tremendously. I spent the entire movie wanting to punch the main kid in the face; to just shake him and tell him to stop being such a prick and be nice to his mother who is struggling to give him a decent life. The one thing that made it special was how it was filmed. Spending 13 years filming the same movie is an interesting and bold was to make a film, and I really truly appreciate that.
    The Theory of Everything was fine. It was a bit slow and the filming was just okay, but the portrayal of a person slowly succumbing to ALS was amazing. The struggle with the disease was made so real, and that's was I truly enjoyed about the film. I could care less that it was Stephen Hawking. Just the fact that it was a person and his wife and family having to come to terms with the disease and slowly slipping over time was heartbreaking. That's what made it worth watching.
    Selma, again, was fine. The cinematography and direction was terrible, in my personal opinion. It's like Ava DuVernay was trying to rip off Tom Hooper and Zack Snyder at the same time and it does not work out. Also, the fact that Oprah tries to plant herself into as many scenes as possible not only took me out of the film completely but aggravated me to no end. Her character had no true purpose. It was written in probably just to get Oprah some screen time. The performances from the resy of the cast, though, were fantastic.David Oyelowo is a spot on King and it's a joy to watch him work. It's also a very real, humanizing take of MLK, which is incredibly fresh and made the movie that much more interesting.

    Now, the top 3 and the almost 3 way tie: Birdman, The Imitation Game, and Whiplash. These movies were absolutely fantastic in so many ways and I enjoyed every second of them.
    The Imitation Game had some truly standout performances. I am truly loving Keira Knightley's return to film in the past few years. The writing in the film is also fantastic and was a joy to watch. All in all it was a fantastic and truly interesting and remarkable film, especially for a guy who loves World War II history.
    Birdman was a 100% good time at the movies. Now I love me some long takes, so this movie's cinematography, editing, and directing knocked it out of the park. Top that off with some absolutely amazing acting and writing and you have a serious contender for best picture. It was so fresh and new, it was a joy for the eyes. And it was so fun, watching the transitions from scene to scene. It was theater meets film and it was amazing.
    Whiplash is my favorite of all the movies nominated. It's my choice for best picture and if J.K. Simmons doesn't walk away with the award for best supporting actor, I will lose my mind. The writing, the acting, the directing, the music, the moral... It was a film this generation of do-no-work-expect-massive-rewards kids needs as a kick in the pants. It is an interesting and remarkable film to watch and it is a film I know I will come back to time and time again when someone asks me for a movie recommendation. It is, in a word, brilliant.

    So that's my thoughts and feelings. Take them as you will, seeing as I have no formal education in the art of film. Whether you agree or not, these are just my opinions, and I look forward to seeing who the big winner is on the 22nd.

  • Oscar Guesses 09-10

    Count3D Site Admin

    Best Supporting Actress
    Mo'Nique

    Best Original Screenplay
    Close race between The Hurt Locker and Inglourious Basterds. Feinberg and Howell say the former, Ebert and ON says the latter. I'd love an UPset but I think it'll go to Quentin Tarantino.

    Best Adapted Screenplay
    I'd love for District 9 to win but I believe it'll go to Up In The Air. If not, Precious for upset.

    Best Animated Short
    As I mentioned in my last journal the best movies (Partly Cloudy, The Kinematograph, Runaway) weren't even nominated. I'd love for Logorama to win but I think it'll go to A Matter of Loaf and Death â€" Nick Park.

    Best Animated Feature
    Up â€" Pete Docter


    Best Art Direction
    Avatar â€" Art Direction: Rick Carter and Robert Stromberg; Set Decoration: Kim Sinclair


    Best Costume Design
    The costumes may be purdy but the category has gone stale. They should just rename it Best Royal Duds.
    The Young Victoria â€" Sandy Powell

    Best Makeup
    The Star Trek series may finally win an Oscar.

    Best Cinematography
    I've had a pretty good streak going because every year it's gone to my second favourite. Looks like the streak's going to end, as this year it's truthfully hard to say which one of three is my favourite. So, Mauro Fiore â€" Avatar.

    Best Supporting Actor
    Christoph Waltz has been the likeliest Oscar winner of ANY nominee. Which means this would the perfect category for a surprise upset so watch out for Plummer or Harrelson.

    Best Documentary Feature
    The Cove â€" Louie Psihoyos and Fisher Stevens


    Best Documentary Short
    The Last Truck: Closing of a GM Plant â€" Steven Bognar and Julia Reichert

    Best Live Action Short
    The Door â€" Juanita Wilson and James Flynn

    Best Sound Editing
    Avatar â€" Christopher Boyes and Gwendolyn Yates Whittle

    Best Sound Mixing
    Food for thought... between the nominees in this category, you can go back 20 years before you find one that wasn't nominated in each year, and half of those years were won by this same, small group. Avatar - Christopher Boyes, Gary Summers, Andy Nelson and Tony Johnson. War movies traditionally do very well in this category so watch out for The Hurt Locker given its favor with the two bigger prizes.

    Best Film Editing
    When I met Clarke back in September I warned him this would happen. I'll be rooting for him, but it'll probably go to The Hurt Locker â€" Chris Innis and Bob Murawski.

    Best Visual Effects
    Granted, the Academy has been known to look unfavorably upon excess. While I'll applaud if District 9 wins, it'll probably be
    Avatar â€" Joe Letteri, Stephen Rosenbaum, Richard Baneham and Andrew R. Jones

    Best Original Score
    Up â€" Michael Giacchino


    Best Original Song
    "The Weary Kind (Theme from Crazy Heart)" from Crazy Heart â€" Ryan Bingham and T-Bone Burnett


    Best Foreign Language Film
    In its current era, the frontrunners never seem to win, so I'll go with the Argentinian film The Secret In Their Eyes. Would be delighted if A Prophet wins though, or The White Ribbon.

    Best Director
    Kathryn Bigelow

    Best Actress
    Sandra Bullock is the frontrunner. Carey Mulligan is the upset.

    Best Actor
    Jeff Bridges

    Best Picture
    hehehe. Expanded to 10 nominees because of a movie that made A LOT of money last year, this year's winner is likely to be the most under-performed, under-watched in history! The Hurt Locker's biggest chance of an upset is from Inglourious Basterds, and just behind it Avatar... if the new-fangled "preferential balloting" doesn't mess things up...

    2. Get a supporting role in a major film franchise.
    3. Give a good, but not Oscar Worthy performance.
    4. Die.
