Let’s call the 86th Academy Awards ceremony “forgettable.” Host Ellen DeGeneres gave a few pretty good quips, 12 Years a Slave won best picture, Matthew McConaughey won Best Actor, and Gravity won basically everything else in the least-surprising Oscar ceremony imaginable. The gripping space drama took home seven awards, all but one in technical categories […]

While filmmakers spend the next two months patting each other on the back for a job well done and a ticket well sold, those of us accustomed to the solemn pitch of the theater and the sweet, sweet odor of artificial butter have already shrugged off the spectacles of yesterday. Eyes always on the next […]

Although there are a number of different awards handed out come awards season, it is the Oscars that really count. Winning an Academy Award is the ultimate recognition that actors can receive. As a result, there is no lack of controversy around the Oscars, as some very prominent actors fail to win even one, despite […]

Ah, food, the great equalizer. Of course, many of us are locked in an eternal struggle between food’s deliciousness and our waist sizes, but that doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate a good food-related movie now and then.

We’ve written this article before. In fact, we’ve written 38 variations of this article, with five leading to a third World War, three resulting in alien invasions and one resulting in the enlightenment of mankind and world peace.
