    I was one of the Cablevision customers unable to watch the beginning of the Academy Awards. Cablevision must of been flooded with customer complaints all day and announced around 4 PM Sunday that all the On demand movies would be free due to ABC going dark. Within minutes the service crashed and almost no one could order or view any On Demand movies. Now Cablevision had to deal with customers calling to complain about 2 serious issues. By 8 PM the On demand service was still unavailable and by 8:15 PM ABC came back on. It’s quite possible that angry Cablevision customers crashed the On Demand service intentionally to force Cablevision to agree with ABC’s demands.
    Some Cablevision customers went out and bought a digital antenna. They discovered that the old fashioned over the air signal is far superior to the Cablevision signal.

    Hurt Locker is absolutely overrated. There are many war movies like Hurt Locker and it is actually boring. A pity Meryl Streep did not win an Oscar for her role in “Julie&Julia”. On the other side why should she win an Oscar for playing Julia Child who was not only lovely but also well-known for her homophobia.

    Moreover “The white Ribbon” which tells the story of the children and teenagers of a choir set in a small protestant village in northern Germany on the eve of World War I, deserved an Oscar. It is really a good movie and worth a watch. I assume it was not chosen by the Academy as it won already the Palme d’Or at 62nd Cannes Film Festival in May 2009.

    Andy you are right! I saw the Hurt Locker last summer and was kind of tired when I went and dozed off during it and thought I must have missed something that made the film the critical darling and talk of the film world over the summer (and even going back to last years Spirit Awards where it won several awards). I went back to see it in January when it was re-released and realized I only slept through about a minute of it and missed nothing important. It’s a good action film with above average character development and nice suspense but almost any of the other nominees (except Avatar and the Blindside) would have more worthy winners in my mind.

    You are also right about the White Ribbon which is a jarring, disturbing, gorgeous, very smart film that was unfortunately relegated tot he Foreign language category where famously the few Academy voters who are legible to vote on that race (they basically have to prove they’ve seen all the nominees) usually vote for more sentimental fare. Ajami (the Israeli nominated film) was very good as well and word on the street is that A Prophet (the French nominee) is amazing. I have not seen the winner El Secreto de Sus Ojos (nobody outside of the Academy screenings has) so I can’t say if it is better.

    Hey guys! You guys are so great and I am such a fan and I love listening to your podcasts. I am also a big fan of movies and your Oscar podcast was great! However, I’m gonna be a little but of a movie snob and correct you guys when you said John Hughes wrote and/or directed “Look Who’s Talking.” I am a HUGE John Hughes fan, his films mean so much to me, and I found his Oscar trubute very touching. Point being, he actually had nothing to do with “Look Who’s Talking.” “Look Who’s Talking” was written and directed by Amy Heckerling, who also wrote and directed “Fast Times At Ridgemont High” and “Clueless.” Sorry if that seems bitchy, but I just had to say something! Keep up the great work!

  5. Curtis says:

    Thank you Donny. Not at all bitchy. I was going to comment the same thing. I KNEW John Hughes had nothing to do with Look Who’s Talking or Look Who’s Talking Too. I had just confirmed my belief on IMDB when I discovered your comment beat me to the punch. Marc and Fausto should respect my film authority! hee hee.

    The overall salute to John Hughes was very touching, but yikes! some of those former teen stars have not aged well and their mugs in closeup on the screen scared the beejeezus out of me! That is what I was reacting too.
