Oscars

It seems to be Oscar season again. Some of my chums make an effort to see every film nominated, but I don’t bother.

I do occasionally look at the listings, but all you see are blurays or dvds projected on a slightly bigger screen than my tv.

I was watching Stanley Kramer’s comedy It’s a Mad, Mad etc  World on bluray the other day. When it came out, it must have looked fantastic, on a super wide curved screen, a real immersive experience. Film makers rarely use film these days. J J Abrams does and Christopher Nolan, I believe, and that’s about it.
