Finally, the shortlist for the 83rd academy awards best visual effects category has been published. Scott Pilgrim vs the World, mind- bending Inception and witch boy, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 are on that list (I mean, why not). Also our iron clad Ironman 2, Alice in Wonderland, Tron Legacy and Clint Eastwood’s Hereafter round off the list which will be trimmed down to five when the final nominations are announced.
Naturally, CINEMANIACS is expecting that Inception or Tron Legacy will bully the rest but there’s still the wacky Scott Pilgrim … which pushed us around with subtle and in- your- face effects. One things sure, though, it’s gonna be fun.
