Where nonsense, geekery, and sometimes real life abound.
I was only tenuously connected to the Oscars this year, neither thrilled by the nominees or Seth McFarlane hosting. However, my brief flashes of interest brought me to the internet or the actual televised event. To wit:
This has always been my favorite adaptation of A Christmas Carol. Michael Caine is a great Scrooge, the songs are catchy, the effects for the Ghosts of Christmas are awesome, and the Muppets give it that special flair that make me love it so.
Pixar: The only company that takes the time to make animated blooper reels.
This is something that has always endeared Pixar to me. Not only do they take all the time to animate a feature length film (plus a short at the beginning) for a movie-going public, but they throw in a gag reel because they felt like doing it.
Can it be next year yet?
Yet another reason to love this man.
One of the many reasons why I keep giving less of a shit about the Oscars every year. I didn’t even bother watching it this year since the list of nominees was next to worthless. The qualities by which to judge films have changed, but those creaking skeletons in the Academy could care less.
