"I saw this in the theater with a friend who (like me) has a very high tolerance for obscure,messy film.We both left the screening saying,'What the hell WAS that?' "- RV

Yes No Maybe So: "Magic in the Moonlight"

Another year,another Woody Allen.Same as it ever was.Coming off another professional highBlue Jasminebut a personal low,will people turn out?Woody films are always hard to predict,reception wise both critically and at the box office (I'm still so alarmed at how successfulTo Rome With Lovewas despite being so so terrible),from abject failures to Oscar nominees.But let's talk aboutMagic in the Moonlight...or at least our futurist perception of it based on its new trailer.

The Yes No Maybe So™ breakdown isafter the jump...

Woody Allen to be Jacki Weaver's (Third Time) Lucky Charm?

Glennhere to discuss one of his favourite topics: the career rejuvination of Jacki Weaver!

When Weaver scored a seemingly improbable Oscar nomination a few years back for Australian crime dramaAnimal Kingdom(a nomination I predicted an equally improbable year in advance),most expected the diminutive Aussie to crawl off back home with her pride,some glamorous memories and little else.The rest,however,as we all know,went much differently.She hasn't been working anywhere near as much the lady that bested her to the statue - that'd be Melissa Leo who's accepted everything in her path - but she's been afforded the chance to work with some great auteurs and got a second nomination earlier this year to boot.More...

Red Carpet Oscar Pt.1: "Princess.Puppy. Purse."

For this Oscar Nominee edition of thered carpet convosI am pleased to welcomeCourtneyfromPajiba!

It's Courtney!

NATHANIEL: Welcome to the Film Experience,亚博主页Courtney.Since you're a brand new to many readers (unless they're smart enough to read Pajiba!) it's confession time.I wore aLes Miztee to the Oscars last night but before we dive into what the Best Supporting Actresses were wearing,亚博主页tell us: what wereyouwearing last night?!

COURTNEY: Hello,sir!I was looking superb - a vision in flannel,baby vomit elegantly adorning my jeans.

NATHANIEL: Beautiful.Do you hate it when they ask the nominees if their child picked their dress for them?I heard it first with Reese Witherspoon last night but you hear it all the time.

COURTNEY: I hate the question,and I hate the answers.If children ever actually picked out Oscar gowns,however,that is a ceremony I'd watch.Picture it.It would be some sparkly nonsense and I'd love it.

Maybe Hugh Jackman would have shown up dressed as Batman.SEE?Automatically a better ceremony.

NATHANIEL:Definitely less matchy-matchy and "on trend"I'll give you that.Rainbow would be the new black.Okay....

SUPPORTING ACTRESS.Anne Hathaway's 'darts' were the talk of twitter last night but there's more than just pointy boobs to discuss.

Three Faces of Link

Inside TVJacki Weaver gets a sitcom.It's calledThe McCarthysand she's playing a character possibly not unlike her Silver Linings Playbook character.Best part of the news: Jack McGee,who was so terrific as Mr Melissa Leo in The Fighter wins the male lead.
Nicks Flick Picks,always generous at heart if not generous in posting,is picking the highlights of every Oscar nominee's career in this growing post.That's a great way to celebrate the nominees even if you don't care for their latest nomination.That's me with Amy Adams I suppose.I am completely 50/50 on her Oscar nominations.Wouldn't trade the first and third for anything.Don't think she deserved the second and fourth.

Finally...have you seen this85 Years of Oscar poster by Olly Moss?

Oscar is a real chameleon in this graphic set,switching costumes and poses to reflect each year's winning film.Like all multiplied efforts,there are hits and misses but I've included my favorites above: 1945 (Oscar gets the DTs),1953 (Oscar in swim trunks),1964,1978,1979,1986 (a strong use of an iconic movie poster),1988 (which I think is the best single image ...so minimalist but funny and "aha!"),1999,2001 (that one took me a second) and 2011.

Which were your favorite visual sum-ups?
