Kathryn Bigelow has reentered the awards season with Detroit; offering the best ensemble cast you’ll see all year (both big name and soon to be breakout stars) Bigelow puts us in the murkier throes of the 1967 Detroit Riots by resurfacing some of its buried horrors. In the Algiers Motel incident three black teenage boys were slain by the hand of their protectors. One murder was left unsolved and the others were ruled “Justifiable Homicide” allowing all involved cops to walk unconvicted.
Judson & Collin are here to contradict everything they said about the Oscars last week as they examine the legacy of The Artist and discuss Charlie Chaplin's City Lights and how it gave the silent film industry a small boom before the talkies took complete control of Hollywood. They also briefly discuss HBO's Girls and give a shoutout to the gentlemen of the Atlantic Screen Connection.
The Academy Awards are upon us! Join us as we discuss our Oscar picks and those nominees which deserve to win the most.
Science fiction films may be popular and profitable but they don’t get much respect at the Oscars (which will be here very soon). Whichever movie finally wins, the odds are that it will not be a science fiction film. Looking at the history of the Oscars, they haven’t been very kind to the genre that gave us Star Trek and Star Wars.
