But that doesn’t mean “Life Of Pi” won’t clean up. It’s going to win several awards out of its eleven nominations and it will … Read More 2013 Oscars Challenge: [31] Life Of Pi – Eleven Nominations

Since most of my votes went with “Lincoln”, my final tally was a little off, but I still got 17 categories right, which I choose to believe is rather good for such an unpredictable year.

The film “Hitchcock” is wonderfully cast, with an unrecognizable Anthony Hopkins, as Hitchcock. The film takes place before … Read More Theatrical Releases: Red Dawn, Life Of Pi, & Rise of the Guardians
