Kevin Muller‘s Oscar Picks

Visual Effects

Avengers: Endgame

The Irishman

1917

The Lion King

Star Wars: Rise of the Skywalker

 

My Pick: 1917

What Will Win: 1917

While the people will be pulling for Avengers: Endgame, I feel that the sheer mastery of direction, and visual trickery, of Sam Mendes World War 1 film, will take it all.  It’s a masterpiece of filmmaking that pushed the extremes of the singular shot technique.

Review – JOKER (2019) **31 Days of Horror**

By Kevin Muller

The most important thing a film can do is make you feel something.  Most of the time, we expect to walk out of the cinema feeling inspired or uplifted. That is fine, but certain films conjure certain feelings within us that are not always positive.

These are young performers who will bring Gerwig’s vision to life. Gerwig can write sharp and sassy dialogue, which will breathe new life into this classic tale.
