We hope you can join us Sunday, February 26th for Oscar night as Cinema Recon will broadcast its first ever LIVE* show!! Our plan is to be on the couch with mics at the ready, cameras steadily positioned, and beers in hand right when the ceremony begins at 7:00ET/4:00PT. Watch the Oscars right along with us in real-time! We are going to power through the entire show: No breaks, no edits…Just pure, unadulterated Cinema Recon goodness!
Check back in with CinemaRecon.com soon and I will have instructions posted for how you can stream the video and audio right to your computer-machine!
To celebrate, Cinema Recon has been watching and reviewing a different Best Picture nominee each week leading up to Oscar night (next week we will see Hugo, if all things go according to plan). This week we are reviewing The Artist, and I couldn’t be more excited.
Everything I have heard so far about this year’s Academy Awards has led me to believe that it is going to be a two-horse race between The Descendants and The Artist (the Golden Globes certainly seemed to agree). Now that Jake and I have already given our reviews of the quite enjoyable Clooney flick, I’m very eager to see how The Artist will hold up against it.
Billy recently told me “The Artist makes going to the movies truly magical again. It doesn’t blow the doors down in any single aspect, and sure, it kinda uses a gimmick in being a silent film…but damned if I didn’t have a great time through the entire thing!” (sorry bud if my paraphrasing is off)
Have any of you had a chance to see The Artist yet? What are your thoughts? Only two weeks left until the big night!
* = So, you noticed that little asterisk up there, eh? Well, the Oscar show is scheduled to be a LIVE broadcast AS LONG AS all technical devices are working properly. I am working ’round the clock to make that so, but if I accidentally connect the blue wire where the red wire should have been, not to worry! I will still have the entire “CR Oscar Special” available for download and streaming on the site, just like every other show.
