We love talking about the newest upcoming movies, television shows, and pop culture events here at GeekNation, but there’s also a lot of value in looking back and examining the pieces of media that have shaped how we’ve arrived at this point in our culture. Don’t worry, we’re still going to be covering the latest news and talking about the big blockbusters coming out a few years down the road, but in 2014, I’m going to try to make a concerted effort to look back more often to art that already exists. I have some retrospective pieces planned already, but a great way to start this process is posting this video from editor Nelson Carvajal that highlights the winners of the Best Visual Effects at the Oscars since the category was reintroduced in 1977. Take a look below:
Did you see What Dreams May Come in there? I totally forgot that film existed. In any case, Carvajal – who is an excellent editor responsible for a lot of film-related supercuts floating around the web – did a great job putting this video together.
Which of this year’s nominees do you think will win? Does Gravity have it in the bag, or could it be upset by Star Trek Into Darkness, The Lone Ranger, Iron Man 3, or The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug?
