If it's crap ... We'll tell you
The news broke yesterday that Disney would be closing the 30 years old game publishers LucasArts. Now that it has been set in stone and people begin to move on we are beginning…Continue

My Winner - Argo (mainly because of the Ben Affleck snub - this way, he can still get an Oscar). If not, I also surprisingly enjoyed Les Miserables, so I'd go with that.
Probable Winner - Lincoln (mainly because... well... America) I think Django Unchained might be ruled out due to the 'n-word' barrage, Amour will be lined up for Best Foreign Film and Beasts of the Southern Wild might be a bit too... different to win it - apart from that, I think it's wide…Continue

The 85th Academy Awards is right around the corner. No matter how you may feel about the ceremony itself, or the validity of the movies deemed to be the yearly "best," it cannot be denied that the Oscars represents a staggering legacy of cinema. To pay tribute to this legacy, artist Olly Moss has created an elaborate poster featuring a different statuette for each of the Best Picture winners. The creativity and attention to detail employed…Continue
The coming of the new year brings with it the strange, garish tradition that we call The Academy Awards. It's that time of year when celebrities wander out of their palatial caves for a giant pageant wherein they pretend they don't want the gold statues for which they are competing with their colleagues. I'm…Continue
For once, the actual author of the story set out to make his version of the story on film the definitive one! Not only that but Chbosky manages to convince anyone that his version of the story and its characters in this film should be the only version to be made. It's one of those rare films that…Continue

What is arguably the most iconic Hollywood film of the modern era is back once again to rake in more money. But what is it that has made this film so massive in its impact? It's a movie about an event that almost no one living today ever experienced, it's a James Cameron film without nuclear weapons, Terminators,…Continue

Well, here we are. Today is the day that lets loose a tidal wave of discussion, debate, and (often) unrestrained bitching from critics and casual movie fans alike. Today is the day the Oscar nominations were announced. Without belaboring this too much, here's the list of the nominees in the various…Continue
George Clooney recently won Best Actor at the Golden Globes this past week, now as we know Golden Globes do tend to Follow the same Formula as The Academy Awards. By any means we may see George walk off the stage with his Oscar after past numerous attempts with The American, Up in the Air, and Michael Clayton. So What do you think Clonneyites do you think well see our future president win His Oscar.

With all the negativity that has surrounded this year's Oscar ceremony, I'll admit I found this cheesy trailer for the ceremony to be refreshing. In the trailer, Josh Duhamel and Megan Fox, don't ask me why those two, are on an epic guest to find the elusive figure known as The Host. Yeah, it's…Continue
Ricky Gervais pissed off a lot of humorless celebrities when he hosted the Golden Globes last year. Meanwhile, he managed to give audiences something to cheer about with his irreverent roasting of practically everyone in the room. Currently…Continue
Actor, comedian, and three-time Oscar host Steve Martin has posted an open letter on his website to his friend and former 'Bowfinger' costar Eddie Murphy after it was announced that Murphy would be hosting…Continue
Few directors have garnered as much praise in the last decade as Christopher Nolan has. Said praise has come from impressive box office numbers -almost $1.2 billion domestically-, many appearances in critics' end of the year top 10 lists and awards from pretty much every award ceremony in the Anglophone world. Except for one, the grand daddy of them all: the Academy Awards. With only three nominations under his belt, none of which are for Best Director, the golden statuette…Continue
To compliment our live Oscar podcast tonight, we thought it might be fun to go back revisit a few of the movies we reviewed in the Best Picture category, along with other categories in which they received a nomination. Why watch bland red carpet interviews when you can have a little pre-show fun here.
So, Sunday is the big day. Sunday is the day where Hollywood’s royalty get together and celebrate the best of the best. Yep…Sunday is Oscar Sunday. As a movie lover, I’ve always loved watching the Oscars, if only to nitpick the winners and shout at the Academy’s insistence to reward movies that are strange at best – for example, awarding an Oscar for Best Visual Effects to The Golden Compass over Transformers. Yeah; I’m still bitter. Anyway, this isn’t about the 80th Academy…Continue
