New Oscar Podcast

Hey guys, there’s a new Narrative Breakdown podcast up about 2014 movies just ahead of tomorrow’s Oscar ceremony. We start with Selma, and I say the pretty much the same things I said here on the blog, but after that we cover…
  • Nightcrawler
  • Whiplash
  • Snowpiercer
  • Boyhood
…and most of my thoughts on those movies go far beyond what I said on the blog, so check it out. We also discuss Edge of Tomorrow, which I’ll discuss here on the blog next week, so you’ll get a preview of that.

I think that this is the best one we’ve done. I’m working on my presentation skills so I pictured Tyler Perry from Gone Girl throwing a peanut at me every time I was about to revert to my verbal tics, and that helped!

I loved EDGE and hated SNOWPIERCER (which makes me "Team Cheryl"). I agree that both EDGE and SNOWPIERCER devolve into nonsense at the end, but with EDGE I was willing to forgive it because the nonsense was about plot mechanics. In SNOW, rules were broken in service of theme, which feels somehow more unforgivable: a storyteller who cheats forfeits the right to make grandiose statements about the human condition.
