It's the lighting on the matte I think. I've heard that Hitch was a control freak for lighting and hated shooting on location. That fact IMO hurts his films for today's audiences as a lot of his...

You want me to screen the noms??? Ugh and nope, the rules of the 25th HoF are clearly stated: any movie under 240 minutes that hasn't previously won can be nominated.

Siddon wasn't accused of not taking Themroc seriously, he was accused of not watching by means of viewing the film at 12x and being done and over with it in 15 minutes.
