Dad gum it! Now I might have to predict Flop Wars to win an Oscar now!?February 2, 2016 at 11:06 pm #214517This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.February 2, 2016 at 11:12 pm #214518This post was found to be inappropriate by the moderators and has been removed.February 2, 2016 at 11:32 pm #214519
I myself am worried that The Revenant might actually win the Oscar. That bear attack scene just won them 3 VES Awards.February 2, 2016 at 11:58 pm #214520
I still think it’s Mad Max. I think the effects were one of the most notable aspects of one of the best movies of the year. It’s like with Gravity. The visuals are one of the main sources of the movie’s acclaim.February 3, 2016 at 12:27 am #214521
I’m glad other people on this forum agree that Star Wars was awfulFebruary 3, 2016 at 2:03 am #214522
Mad Max also won an award at this guild, despite the original poster failing to mention thatFebruary 3, 2016 at 3:47 am #214523

Yes it won for the Toxic Storm. Outstanding Effects Simulations in a Photoreal Feature
“The winner of that VES prize has gone on to win the Special Effects Oscar 9 out of 14 times. So does that mean that ”Star Wars” will get the gold? No. If there’s a Best Picture nominee in this category, it usually wins.”February 3, 2016 at 4:11 am #214524
Still think its Mad Max at oscarsFebruary 3, 2016 at 4:43 am #214525
In terms of originality I think the Mad Max effects will have more of an impact of voters, so my vote is still Fury Road.
But I will move Revenant in #2.
But Star Wars has an amazing shot at winning the Oscar.
Even the VFX race this year is an unknown. By this time we usualy know who will win (Life of Pi, Gravity …)
Crazy year.February 3, 2016 at 4:48 am #214526
I’m happy for Star Wars. I thought its VFX was competently done, but there was nothing really outstanding about it. I wonder if Fury Road used more CGI than practical effects that it would win this. I still think it’s Fury Road at the Oscars.February 3, 2016 at 10:42 am #214527
A little bit of sanity returns to the guild voting. TFA for the win Oscar night, on a night that is already tainted by #OscarsSOWhite and the snubbing of the most popular film of all time (which will break $900 million domestic by this weekend) for fucking Mad Max Fury Road, the most overrated movie of this century.February 3, 2016 at 10:44 am #214528

Awful? 93 Rotten Tomatoes rating. $896,541,631 at the domestic boxoffice alone. Relegated to the Oscars ghetto all sci-fi movies are put (Sound, VFX, etc).
Yeah, TFA was awful, all right.February 3, 2016 at 10:46 am #214529
Dad gum it! Now I might have to predict Flop Wars to win an Oscar now!?
“Flop Wars” I call it “Disney Wars: The Failed Awakening”, personally. You JackO, have just become my favorite person on this entire website! 😉
You two wouldn’t know true movie quality if it bit you right in the ass. The critics and moviegoers worldwide have spoken. Bad movies do not earn $2 billion worldwide as of this coming weekend.
