“He had an accident when he was a kid. Still has a hum in the drum. Plays music to drown it out. And that’s what makes him the best.” – from Baby Driver
Best Sound Editing, Best Sound Mixing
It’s been a while since I have seen this one as I saw it when it first came to theaters. This movie was so highly marketed and highly rated that it was another one where I went into it with super high expectations. It’s about Baby, who is a partially hearing impaired getaway driver who gets in the zone with the perfect soundtrack. The movie wasn’t bad; it’s action packed and has a big-name cast (including the likes of John Hamm, Jamie Foxx, and is like a musically induced Italian Job type of film. The ending was a little blah, and it’s not a flick I’d see but the one time.
This movie is nominated for sound and I whole heartedly agree with those nominations. It was a different way to film a movie and it almost felt like the built a movie around a concept of music and sound. The music definitely paces out the movie – that’s the whole point. They did a great job pulling it all together post production from a sound perspective. With respect to the nominations, I think it’s best chance for a little gold man is in Sound Mixing, but I don’t know if it will beat its very very stacked competition.
