The 2012 Oscars! Part 1

On February 26, Cinema Recon hosted a very special event: A Live viewing and commentary of the 84th Annual Academy Awards!

The video was hosted by Ustream.com, and there, on the Cinema Recon channel, you can find video of the show, or you can also watch by visiting CinemaRecon.com and taking a look at our post “Replay of Cinema Recon LIVE

Easily one of our favorite shows yet, we had an absolute blast broadcasting live, interacting with fans through Twitter, Facebook, and Ustream, and just causing the normal Cinema Recon debauchery you’ve come to expect.

This epic event has been split into 3 parts for you to listen as a podcast.  Even if you missed the Oscars, the show is still entertaining and pretty damn hilarious.

So kick back, relax, and enjoy the very special Cinema Recon LIVE with the 2012 Academy Awards!

Thank you so much to everyone who tuned in and participated in our first big live event! We had such a great time putting on the live show, we’d love to do another as soon as possible. It will course always comes down to what the listeners (now viewers!) want, so if you liked this show, please drop us a line and tell us what you thought!

Cinema Recon’s LIVE Oscar Event!

It will be a red carpet affair this February 26th (This Sunday!) @ 4:00 PST at the Cinema Recon Studios in San Ramon!  Join us for a special episode where we will bring you our commentary of the 84th Annual Academy Awards LIVE and uninterrupted!

Watching us is easier than you can possibly imagine!  Do you have a computer?  Do you have a TV?  Then you’re ready to invite Cinema Recon into your living room for Oscar night! (Disclaimer: If you do not have a computer OR a TV, we are sorry, but we don’t want poor people listening to our show)

Here’s everything you need to know:

  • You can watch us LIVE on CinemaRecon.com by going here during the event
  • Or, you can watch LIVE on our Ustream channel by going here during the event
  • Paul, Jake, Cassie and Billy will be ranting and raving continuously through the entire event, even during the commercials!
  • There is about a 3 second delay between our broadcast and what you will hear/see, so we recommend pausing your DVR for a couple of seconds to sync up our banter with the Awards
  • Don’t wanna watch us all by your lonesome??  Come on over to the Cinema Recon Studios: San Ramon!  We will trade hilarity for beer!

See you this Sunday!!


Cinema Recon and The Oscars!

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.
