Recording a podcast while working a daytime job is way harder to coordinate than I thought. How do I know this? Two weeks absolutely blew by without Justine and I getting together, thanks to the hustle and bustle of life, but since we started twitching from our podcasting withdrawal, I’d Rather Be At The Movies is back! You all missed us, right? Right?! Should I stop begging for your love now?
While there were a ton of titles that I’d Rather Be At The Movies missed over the last two weeks, there’s one thing on everyone’s mind after this weekend – The Oscars. Or not? That’s the problem with this year’s event – did it really beg a memorable response? Did Ellen Degeneres win over audiences and work her way into the Oscar Host Hall of Fame? Were there any surprises in terms of awards? Knock-out segments? Gratuitous celebrity self-wanking and back patting? Don’t worry, 12 Years A Slave won best picture, so we can all take solace in the fact that the Academy did something right – even if all voters didn’t even bother to watch Steve McQueen’s powerfully moving picture.
Aside from our Oscar discussion, guess what – I watched a bunch of indie movies again. Surprised, right? There are so many wonderful films released through Video On Demand platforms and I just can’t help myself from talking about them. Of course, that means Justine had to sit and listen to me talk about insane stuff like murderous nurses and Chatroulette murderers, but you’re getting her honest reaction – which helps keeps me in check. You get my recommendations, and also the person keeping my explanations sane. The best of both worlds!
Anyway, without any more rambling, enjoy another episode of I’d Rather Be At The Movies!
