re: The Movie Business in Louisiana. Any thoughts on its possible comeback? - JW
Again .... it's not dead and is very busy in New Orleans. As long as the existing credits stay in place the state will continue to be a destination for television and film. Georgia has become oversaturated and you will see films return gradually because of the overflow and returning confidence of th...

re: The Movie Business in Louisiana. Any thoughts on its possible comeback? - JW
The industry is doing fine in New Orleans with at least six major TV series and one large feature (a $60m fox movie called underwater). It's an arms race to find good crew and every local crafts person should be employed. That said the days of multiple tent poles shooting at once are likely done bec...

re: This year's AA nominees for Best Picture - JW
I've seen all 9 nominees ...... La La Land will certainly win, but Moonlight and HOHW are excellent as well. Not sure why the subtle disdain for Hidden Figures, but it's not a fluke that it finished in the 90's on Rotten Tomatoes or made $100 M domestically and counting. And to dismiss it as a b...

re: Margot Robbie to play Tanya Harding in forthcoming shitty movie - JW
she is producing it, so obviously believes in the script. And it's a dark comedy directed by Craig Gillespie (Lars and the Real Girl) Not to mention the budget is less than $15M, so not a big gamble for all involved. ...

re: Single Line of Dialogue - Oscar - JW
yes because it's all about the actors ... with a total of four awards :rolleyes: there are thousands of professionals that work behind the scenes spending months if not years in certain cases on these projects. Electricians, carpenters, camera operators, craft service and on and on that go into...

re: Anyone see 'Moonlight' yet? - JW
saw it ... great looking film. Performances and music are top notch especially Ali and Trevante Rhodes. A small powerhouse of a film and glad it's getting the attention. It's the most serious threat to LA LA LAND for best picture. ...

re: How can ESPN in good conscience continue putting Walton on air? - JW
Walton, Marv Albert and Steve "Snapper" Jones during NBC's coverage of the NBA in the 90's is unbelievable. Especially when Walton would rail on Ostertag .... would call him terrible and soft etc. ...

re: Saw La La Land today - JW
The movie is amazing and the fact that Chazelle's first two films are best picture nominees is ridiculous especially at 31 years old (likely best this year and arguably Whiplash deserved it) .... I wonder if this has ever been done before ...

re: No Hidden Figures Thread? - JW
I saw it on xmas day in a packed theater in Houston. Very diverse crowd and ecstatic reception. The critics have pegged it properly - a feel good movie with great performances telling an unknown story. I am a vested interest in this because i served as Art Director, which means i was a a part of ...
